About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to 'Listen to the Surf' in Grayton Beach, consistently ranked among the most beautiful and pristine beaches in the U.S.!

The beach is sugar white and the water is emerald green. Looking for a small, cozy beach cottage where the old easy beach life still abounds? 'Listen to the Surf' is the perfect choice! The house features a large screened porch with an old fashion swing...spend a lazy morning reading or just watching the Gulf with your cup of coffee. In the evening the sunsets are spectacular and later at night, the galaxy puts on quite a show.
The cottage is casualy decorated...the 3 bedrooms feature freshly ironed linens and white quilts over pretty dust ruffles..with lace curtains and slow turning ceiling fans. The master has a private bath, queen bed and flat screen TV. The other two bedrooms share a bath between. The cottage sleeps a maximum of six and is perfect for small families. The lush green landscape gives you the feel of old Key West..a shady retreat in the heat of the summer. An outside shower will be waiting when you return from the beach.

We take pride in providing many little extras of home..not usually found in rentals as books, puzzles, games, hair dryers, live plants, first aid kit, to name a few.

South Walton has beautiful beaches on the the Gulf, as well as many small lakes along 30-A (the beach road) that provide bank fishing & nature watching.The state parks provide hiking trails & there is a paved bike/jogging path for 20 miles along 30-A. Bike rentals are readily available with delivery & pick-up. The old beach life meets the modern world with Starbucks within walking distance as are many great shops and spas. Fabulous restaurants are also within walking distance...the famous 'Red Bar' and Shorty's in downtown Grayton...Pandoras, Criollas, & Another Broken Egg are all in Grayton, as well. Shopping is a dream with Silver Sands Oulet Mall just a short drive away. So we have whatever you desire...a quiet beach trip with days in the sun..or an action packed get away.

Grayton is located between two airports..The new Panama City Airport to the east, [relocated west of the bridge] is a very easy, quick drive. It is serviced by Southwest and Delta. The Ft. Walton airport is to the west and is serviced by Delta ,American Eagle and U.S. Airways.
If flying, do check both for best rates and schedules.

An entry in the cottage guest book reads, 'The breath taking view of the sunset, the beautiful sand dunes and magnificent beach, the delightful cozy cottage with superb thoughtful attention to details made our stay truly a restful treat for the body, mind, & soul! Thank you! '

We now have wireless internet for your use and free long disance calling within the USA !!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: "Listen to the Surf' was our family beach get-away when we lived in Atlanta. As empty nesters, we were blessed to be able to fulfill our dream and moved to Grayton in 1994. We now live a few miles from Grayton and love to have our special VRBO guests enjoy the simple beach cottage that we and our children enjoyed for years ! ..

Why the Owner Chose Grayton Beach, FL, USA:
Grayton is a very special place busy streets to cross, giving you a trip back to a better time. Just you, the seagulls, and the beautiful beach! And our cottage is so close to that beach. No high rises here...Nearby are coastal lakes, bikes trails. hiking paths, or a faster pace of shopping, golf, movies, etc. Grayton has it all !!!
