Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Everyone who sees the Sandcastle says this is the perfect beach cottage - bright colors with lots of natural light, relaxing furniture -inside and out, colorful original art everywhere! Light hardwood floors in main living area add to the peaceful, relaxing setting. We just purchased new sofas for the living room and den in 2012.

There is plenty of room for lots of people - separate den/family room with new Smart TV and attached screened-in-porch for the children. Adults will enjoy the warm, comfortable living room and the well-equipped kitchen with adjoining large dining area. There are two bedrooms and two full baths on the main living level - the queen bed mattress was just replaced with a luxury set in January of 2016.

Covered upstairs deck off large master bedroom gives you beautiful sunset views and glimpses of the ocean. Wrap around front deck on main level catches the morning sun and afternoon shade.There is plenty of covered space under the porch for kids to play in the sand on a rainy day or after the beach.

Lock yourself away in the upstairs large master bedroom with a new luxury mattress added in November 2015 . There is a great master bath and private deck. The master suite is perfect for a nap, quiet reading, or just watching t.v.-relaxing away from everyone else. There is another bedroom upstairs with a double bed.

Go down the back stairs and take an outside shower when the weather is warm or use the shower to get the sand off the kids.

The gorgeous white sandy beach and crystal clear Gulf is only a 2 minute, easy walk away. Restaurants and shops are close by either in Grayton or in other communities on 30-A. Convenient off-street parking for 4 cars. Grayton is the ideal beach community and you'll love this house and location!

Beach house was great! Location perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The house was the perfect size for our family and was in the perfect location. Only a small walk to the beach. The views of the dunes were amazing. The owner Betty was such a pleasure to book with. She was very attentive in answering all my questions. I would definitely stay here again.

We had a great time being together and enjoyed our stay! Just a few issues...

  • 3 of 5

The house was overall pretty great. It was a tad longer to get to the beach than stated but not too bad. There were also some fairly large bugs around furniture and no working vacuum to get them swept up, so we had to use a broom, which wasn't ideal. We had little ones so that was a little unsettling. There was also an issue with the cable (television). The beds were comfy, and the overall house was great. Clean bathrooms and kitchen. We had a wonderful time being together as a family!

Owner's Response: So sorry there were some problems at the house. I believe I resolved everything as soon as you called it to my attention. As we discussed when you reached out to me about the distance to the beach, I gave you directions to the closest access point which is only 2 minutes walk from the house. You indicated that indeed this was much closer than the walk you had been experiencing. The bugs in question were a couple of dead water bugs that you discovered behind the couch when you moved it away from the wall to retrieve something your child dropped behind it. Because the beach is a tropical setting, we do have bugs from the heat and humidity and so my property manager sprays the house frequently to prevent any infestation. So... the bugs die and if they get behind the furniture, the housekeepers may not see it immediately. I did direct you to the handheld Dirt Devil vacuum that was sitting in the laundry room on top of the linen chest and you told me that it worked perfectly. As it relates to the tv issue, we chose to install a Smart TV so our guests could access their Net Flix, Hulu, or other subscription services. Thunder storms can disrupt service and also, the fact that we have multiple guests with different levels of knowledge of Smart TVs, there can be problems with getting back on the cable service. I did provide our cable company's information so you could call them. Generally, they can reprogram the tv remotely or help you do it by phone. I certainly would have been glad to contact them but it wouldn't have been effective since I wasn't in control of the t.v. Per your email, you told us that the matter had been resolved. We really try to be responsive to any guest complaints so I apologize if we didn't meet your expectations.
