About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Perfectly located within the idyllic village of Grayton Beach, this delightful Carriage House is just steps from the Gulf! You really cannot find a better location to spend your vacation!

This lovely carriage house features parking for two vehicles and a screened porch. Entering the carriage house you will find a cozy living area complete with HDTV. The couch folds out for an additional bed. A full kitchen with stainless appliances perfect for meal or snack preparations also includes a bar area with seating for three. The bedroom is off the living area and has a large bathroom with glass-enclosed shower and flat screen TV. Additionally, there is a stackable full size washer and dryer.

The magnificent sugar white sands and emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico are approximately 200 yards from the home. This property is perfect for a couple or a small family to create a memorable vacation experience!

Grayton Beach is about as laid-back and organic as a beach town can get, from the old-style wooden beach bungalows to the “hippie kitsch” feel of the iconic Red Bar to the narrow neighborhood streets lined with live oaks. But this is more than just a cool beach town. It’s home to the diverse coastal ecosystems of Western Lake and Grayton Beach State Park, and a gateway to a large expanse of sugar-white beach that is a haven for fishermen, boaters, and beachcombers alike.

Book this wonderful carriage home today and experience all Grayton Beach has to offer!

Enjoyed it

  • 3 of 5

Great location, and the house was super cute. Gave it 3 stars because 1. The only way to enter was down a narrow alley that wasn't cleared off, so my husband's truck was scratched along the side and 2. The pool alarm was very annoying. Every time the door opens, the (very loud) alarm goes off, unless a button is pushed. And Heaven forbid you forget to push it after a relaxing day at the beach. Instructions on how to prevent/disable this should have been on the welcome doc with the entry instructions.

Adorable house, Great Location, Property Management Company Not Responsive

  • 2 of 5

The house is adorable and clean. It’s perfect for 2 people, although it says it sleeps 4. There’s a pullout couch in the living room - but no door on the bedroom. Just beware that it is a guest house literally in the backyard of the main house. You don’t have access to the pool or hot tub, both are for the guests of the big house. The location is great. One block to the Red Bar and the beach. There are other restaurants within walking distance. My husband I stayed here at the end of Oct - and the weather went from 75 degrees to 60 degrees with lows in the 40’s.. The temp inside the house dropped to 63 degrees - so we turned on the heat. The smoke alarms went off - and the house smelled like smoke. We immediately turned off the heat and opened the windows. I called the property management number and left a VM. I never received a call back. Per their request - upon checkout I texted the number to let them know we had left. They replied - letting us know they got our text so I asked if they received my VM message. They said they hadn’t so I then texted explaining the issue we had with the heat — no response. I know they got my text - I have an iPhone and so do they - I know they read it. A simple sorry to hear that and we’ll address it would have been fine - but no response to two messages isn’t acceptable. We slept without heat for 2 nights. Wouldn’t rent from this property management company again.

Excellent little nest

  • 5 of 5

The Egg is a great place to stay for a Grayton Beach holiday. It's within walking distance of the beach, the Red Bar, and other "Grayt" local spots. At the same time, it's tucked behind what I call The Big House (The Egg is a carriage house behind the main dwelling.) so that you don't have to deal with the traffic of the main streets of Grayton; your walk is down a sandy alley lined with trees.

The carriage house itself is nicely decorated and has brand new appliances. It's very comfortable, both inside and outside--breakfast and drinks on the screened in porch are heavenly events.

The drawback involves the hot tub and swimming pool. Apparently those go with The Big House. You do not get the remote to operate the jets on the hot tub, nor are you supposed to enjoy a dip in the pool, despite the fact that these amenities are attached to the very deck you must walk on to nter the carriage house. The hot tub is literally about 9 feet from your back door (the door you see on the screen porch in the picture)! At first, the people staying in The Big House allowed us to use the hot tub. On our final day, however, they asked me to be out by a certain hour because they had guests coming over. I completely respected this wish and their privacy issues. But that's the point; the properties are simply too close together to say one house gets to use the amenities and the other doesn't. It's rather like saying only people on the first floor of a motel can use the pool and those on the second floor can't; it makes no sense. I think the owners of this property should reconsider and allow hot tub and pool privileges to ALL guests, whether they're staying in The Big House or The Egg. To watch others 9 feet away enjoying such amenities seems like a slap in the face.

Otherwise, I highly recommend staying at The Egg. The property is exactly as it appears in the photos, it's clean and well-maintained, and it's in the perfect location. I enjoyed my stay!
