Perfect property near everything but crowds!
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.
Thank you Brian for being our guests really enjoyed meeting you and your family... Girls were so cute with there turtles!!!☺ looking toward to having you again.
Grayt house in Grayton!!
Beautiful house in Grayton Village, not far from Grayton Beach. The pictures do not do the property justice! The house was very nicely decorated, clean, and in very good shape. All 3 bedrooms are upstairs, the rooms spacious and very comfortable. Our teenagers even commented how comfortable the beds were. There are three porches that can be enjoyed. There is also a nicely decorated den w/large flat screen where we had a movie night each night and hung out.
Each morning after enjoying our coffee on the upstairs porch we piled in the golf cart and drove to Grayton Beach, a little over a mile away. There are several places close by if you want to eat breakfast on the way to the beach, or leave the beach for lunch (Choringo has a great upstairs open air eating area with a view of the ocean) and then go back. The kids were also able to ride the included bikes back and forth to Seaside and Watercolor multiple times during our stay. There was a shed next to the house that also contained some beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, etc, that we were able to use.
Out of all our VRBO stays, this house was the nicest and most well stocked that we have ever stayed in (plus it was pet friendly!). The Golf Cart rental option is recommended as there are plenty of places to choose from for breakfast, lunch, or dinner within a 2 mile radius and the shops of Grayton are only a couple of blocks down the road on the way to the beach. Sometimes parking can be an issue in the Grayton Beach area and the golf cart gave us many more parking options. We only used our car to go to the grocery store at the beginning of the week.
Pete and Doris, the owners, were very friendly and easy to deal with. They met us at the house when we arrived to give us a tour. We had no issues during our stay and will be looking forward to staying at Heron Cottage again in the future!
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!!
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
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.
Doris & Pete where wonderful
Beautiful home in a great location. We were able to unplug and enjoy our vacation, close to amenities, but also private and enjoyable.
