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!

Wonderful Vacation/Wedding in Grayton Beach, FL

  • 4 of 5

The Sandcastle was a welcoming and comfortable home for our group of nine while getting ready and attending my daughters wedding. The town is very small so the house is just a short walk to everything. We rented bikes and enjoyed riding the nice bike path running along 30A. We really enjoyed the short walk to the beach, the patio just off the Master Bedroom, and the screened in porch off the family room. Thank you Betty for renting your home to us for this very special event. The Beach Wedding was beautiful and your home was the perfect spot for the bride to get ready.

Peaceful, Affordable, and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

A truly great experience. This home is extremely welcoming, in a wonderful location, and is a great way to experience and enjoy all the Grayton Beach has to offer. The house is extremely well-kept and clean. The rental experience with the owner is easy and simple. And at the end of the day, you will be hard pressed to find a better value in the area. As others have noted, it is within walking distance to all of the great stuff in the area, including the beach. Sunsets from the porches at Sandcastle are worth the rental alone!

Favorite Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our children and grandchildren have been staying at Sandcastle every July 4th week for at least 6 or 7 years and have no desire to stay elsewhere. The house is perfect for large families. It is attractively decorated, is plenty spacious, has all the necessary kitchen supplies and has great porches on 3 levels. It is also located within walking distance of the beach, favorite local attractions such as The Red Bar, and nice paths for walking or biking. This house and location are hard to beat!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Grayton beach on many occasions. Sandcastle is one of the most thoughtfully put together houses we have stayed in. There were multiple living spaces and 3 decks to choose from. It was beautifully clean and had a well equipped kitchen. Super easy access to everything that is wonderful about Grayton Beach and the 30A. My only reservation on writing a review - that the word gets out about this house and it becomes permanently booked up!! We will return.
