Welcome to Grayton Beach—a beautiful part of Old Florida beach history. If you haven’t been here before, Grayton Beach is the kind of place where you vacationed as a kid. It’s a place where you get to know the locals and come to feel like one. Visit Grayton just once and you’ll want to come back over and over again.
The “McDonald House” is a true piece of funky Grayton Beach history. It is named after its former owner, singer/songwriter Michael McDonald, whose family lovingly cared for this Magnolia Street home for years. New to the Grayton Beach rental market, the “McDonald House” underwent a fresh renovation in 2012. It is wonderfully decorated and has a cozy beach feel.
The well-designed floor plan has covered parking on the street level, and living areas on the second and third floors. A screened sleeping porch and an open rooftop deck mean your two most important vacation bases are covered—naps in the shade and sunset views of the Gulf! The house is laid out beautifully, with:
• 4 bedrooms (2 King beds, 1 Queen bed, and 2 Twin beds); • 2 full baths; • Sleeping porch with Queen bed swing; • Outdoor enclosed hot water shower; • Living room with new 52” flat screen tv; • New 32” flat screen tv’s in every bedroom; • Gourmet kitchen with new appliances; • Covered parking with room for 4 cars, plus plenty of driveway parking; • In ground pool with private backyard; • Close to the beach.
