BEST BEACH VACATION EVER!!!!
BEST BEACH VACATION EVER!!!!
This house is wonderful! Usually when you book a vacation using pictures from the internet what you get is not nearly as good as the pictures indicated. This house is exactly as advertised. The quality of furnishings etc were top notch but still the house was very comfortable. There is some wear but nothing like we would expect for a rental. Also, there were a couple of glitches with the internet and the top floor balcony off the master suite but the management at 30A Escapes was very responsive. Parking is a little crowded and you have to get past the Red Bar crowd to get to the house but considering the quality of the house and beauty of the beach, well worth that little bit of aggravation. We used Grayton Beach Services for our beach chairs and umbrellas. They were efficient and nice too. It was extremely nice to have the lake as well as the ocean. A couple of days the ocean was too rough for us to feel comfortable letting the kids get in it, so they got in the lake instead. Caught several good size crabs, played in the water while all the time still at the beach, just feet from the ocean. We ate in most of the time. Kitchen wonderfully stocked (except knives need to be replaced, you cant sharpen serrated knives and they are really dull) and since one family member's hobby is gourmet cooking there was no need to eat out. However, plenty of food near if you don't cook. We did eat at the Red Bar since they are legendary in the area. Excellent! Also, some of us did go to Cafe 30A. Again, excellent. Despite how crowded it felt getting to the house, with the exception of Memorial Day Weekend, the beach was not crowded at all. FYI, residents who have a permit can drive their vehicles onto the beach. On the holiday weekend it was packed but otherwise not too bad. And once again, I cannot stress how beautiful this beach is. It really feels like Old Florida. We all agreed, this vacation was absolutely, hands down, the best beach vacation we ever had. As we have been going to the gulf beaches for over 40 years we have a lot to compare it to!

We usually rent a house in Destin but decided to try Grayton. The location of this house is exceptional. It is close enough to some really great restaurants to walk but also has a secluded, neighborhoody feel. The beach has short sand path through the dune making it very easy to get back to the house to get a drink or snack. The kids absolutely loved Western Lake which is about 150 yards east of the house. They chose to play, swim, and kayak in the shallow sandy lake more than in the ocean. You can kayak all the way to the dock at Watercolor without too much effort. The house itself is well designed, clean, and high end. The elevator was nice for move in/out but we didn't use it much other than that. The rooms all have their own connected private bathroom which will now be a must for us. The middle floor has 3 sitting areas for different groups to gather but still be close. The balconies are huge and so close to the kitchen that serving meals outside is easy. We were less than 2 miles from Watercolor/Seaside and about 9 minutes from Publix so while we felt hidden those in the group that always wanted to get out had plenty of opportunity without driving much. I am pretty hard to please but this place did it. This is a house that I will recommend.

True Beach Vacation!

This home was ideal for my family. We had always dreamed of a 'beach home vacation' and this is was most definitely it! It was beautiful and furnishings, appliances, linens, etc were in abundance. The views were breathtaking and those sand dunes were unlike anything we had ever seen before; stunning. The private pool was a HUGE bonus for my family when then kids wanted to swim for hours at night and the adults didn't have to worry about whether they were safe. We could watch them while also enjoying ourselves! We will be coming back next year!

Best Gulf Front on 30A

"Grayton House" is by far one of the nicest gulf front houses on 30A. Its located right in the heart of Grayton Beach. The Red Bar is only about 3 houses away. Perfect for the family beach week. The gulf view porches are incredible. Great area to rent a kayak and explore the gulf and coastal dune lake.
