Perfect property near everything but crowds!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and felt much larger inside than the sq footage listed. The owners were super nice and had provided everything we could have needed. The home is in a very quiet development of only s few houses on what feels like a secluded area with very little congestion. The beach is a short bike ride away. We will definitely be back.

Heron Cottage was clean, comfortably decorated, and well prepared for guests.

Great stay! Doris and Pete, the owners, were super friendly. Everything was clean and comfortable. Great place to land for easy access to 30A, just far enough off of the main path to keep you out of the vacationing masses if you don’t want to be in in the middle of them. Highly recommend for a visit to 30A.

Great location, spacious house, beautifully decorated!!

  • 5 of 5

Meeting the owners helped us feel welcome in their home & added to the appeal. Golf cart was perfect for carting beach gear & easy to find parking near the beach. House was the most well stocked place we have ever stayed- had coffee & filters upon our arrival plus so many other extras, very thoughtful! Grayton has so much character, great restaurants & friendly people. Last but not least, having our dog with us was a true blessing!

Outstanding place for relaxing and experiencing beach life

  • 5 of 5

OMG what a fantastic relaxing time we had in the Heron Cottage in Grayton Beach, FL. close to the beach, shopping and eating establishments. Plus a street legal golf cart to accommodate all of the above. Pete and Doris were wonderful host of the property. Very accommodating and informative. The cottage had everything from band aids to makeup cleansers.

A big thank you to the Wheelers for such a wonderful stay and we plan to return this summer to enjoy all of the above. Again you two are the best.

Everything you need and more!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Heron Cottage was a comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable retreat. We walked to Hurricanes restaurant ( less than 5 mins) everyday for oysters at happy hour. The beach is just a 5 min bike ride away, which they provide. Nice bikes, not rusted out, plus a lot of other beach accessories like chairs, towels, beach bags and toys for the tots! Location was great and the house felt like Home. We were so grateful to be able to bring our bulldog Gracie along for the vacation. The house does have somewhat steep stairs with all the bedrooms upstairs which posed a problem for our short legged dog, but a baby gate is provided which helped keep her off the stairs when needed. Doris and Pete were available to answer any questions we had along the way, and and went over the top to make sure we had an enjoyable stay. Thank you both! We will be back.
