Property description

Welcome to Delta Dunes – our lovely Florida beach house in the family friendly Gulf Trace Community. We bought this home in 2008, so our family could enjoy this spectacular area. We hope your family will also enjoy our house for a vacation at one of the most beautiful beaches in FL.

Gulf Trace is a wonderful, private beachside community south of Hwy 30A and surrounded by a State Park. It's only a few minutes from Grayton Beach and Seaside. There are no condos, big crowds or busy streets, but plenty of white sand, walking and bicycle paths and emerald Gulf water.

Delta Dunes is a beautifully furnished, four bedroom/four bath home with Gulf views and well-landscaped private outdoor pool. It’s a short, two minute walk to the private beach access (four houses back from the beach). You can enjoy early mornings and sunsets in our open-air tower – terrific views of the water to go with the refreshing Gulf breeze.

The home has high ceilings and large windows throughout and boasts a large great room/dining/kitchen on the second floor with a cathedral ceiling and French doors opening to an outdoor deck. It makes for a natural gathering place and offers large TV, DVD player, music and a deck with Gulf views and gas grill.

There are three bedrooms and three baths on the first level. The bunkroom has two bunk beds and is designed to sleep five children. There is also a king bedroom and the third bedroom has two queen beds. The fourth bedroom is upstairs with a king bed and private bath and is off the great room. Each bedroom has cable TV and a DVD player.

The feature that helps set our home apart from many others is our pool and patio area. The pool is hidden amongst plant life, including palms and oaks and is also enclosed by a wooden fence. It’s also a nice size (34’x18’) and enjoys plenty of lounging area in and out of the sun. The pool may be heated. In addition, there is an outdoor ping pong table and a hot/cold shower by the pool.

The home was built in 2003 and is in excellent condition. There is parking for three to four cars behind the house, but it's tight. This is a non-smoking home and pets are not allowed. Wireless Internet is available throughout the house. Maximum capacity is 13 people (15 with sleeper sofa).

I know location is a key factor in renting a vacation home. That's why we have a map on this site, so you can see exactly where our house is located. If you use the map's 'satellite' feature and zoom in, the map will allow you to see the houses in the neighborhood, the street and get a feel for beach access. There is private beach access that is approximately a two minute walk from our house. We are four houses back from the beach on the private, quiet streets of Gulf Trace. There are only a few steps at the beach access, so no steep climb to and from the beach. I hope this helps you better understand our location and our great neighborhood.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: My wife, Georgie & I and our three daughters. We enjoy our beach house, which we bought in the fall of 2008. We looked at many houses, but knew this was the one we wanted to buy on our first visit. We hope you like it, too.

Why the Owner Chose Grayton Beach:
Gulf Trace, 1/3 mile west of Grayton Beach, is really private and close to the beach. No big crowds and surrounded by a state park. It's also close to Destin and Seaside.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The pool and tower are memorable. And Gulf Trace is an ideal neighborhood for a family beach vacation - quiet, slow traffic and short walk to the beach.
