Grayton Beach Condo - Enjoy beautiful sunsets from the covered porch of our second floor west end unit at Grayton Beach Villas. It is a small complex of only six units. We have 2 bedrooms, one with a king bed and the other has twins. Two full baths, one with a tub/shower combo and the other with a shower. Comfy memory foam mattresses, flat screen HDTV, vaulted ceiling in living area, 2 additional TV's in bedrooms and wireless internet. Since we spend a great deal of time there it has a completely stocked kitchen. Everything included to make your stay worry-free and comfortable. 2 houses between you and the beach with small water views from inside and out. Less than 2 minutes from the front door to the beach across the access at the end of our parking area.

Grayton Beach is consistently named one of the most beautiful and pristine beaches in the U.S. The rare dune lakes along 30-A provide great opportunities for observing wildlife, kayaking, paddleboarding, etc.

You can see (but not hear) the famous Red Bar from the oversized back porch, which is furnished with 2 large rockers and a bar height dining table. Porch accessed from living room and master bedroom. Front porch has room for storing chairs, rafts, etc. Uncrowded beach is steps away with plenty of space to spread out. Surrounded by Grayton Beach State Park. 18 miles of paved bike paths with bike rentals easily available for delivery and pick-up. There is a bike rack beside the front stairs. The best restaurants in Florida and great shopping. We provide a notebook with state park hiking trails, area maps and entertainment, deep sea fishing, golf, restaurant menus, etc. Five minutes to Seaside and Watercolor, 15 minutes to SanDestin.

About Marla Davis

We live in Smyrna, GA and have been married 38 years. Sid is a civil engineer and I recently "retired" from working in his office. We have been vacationing in the Panhandle all our lives and are blessed to have had this wonderful place in Grayton for the last 12 years.

Marla Davis purchased this condo in 2003

Why Marla Davis chose Beaches of South Walton

GBV #201 is truly our second home. From the first time we drove into Grayton we knew that's where we wanted to be eventually. We've traveled a good bit and you won't find a more beautiful beach anywhere. It's quiet but close to everything. Laid back beach living at its best.

What makes this condo unique

No traffic or roads to cross from the front door to the beach, especially important if you have children.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful week in Grayton. Your condo was just perfect for our family. We were able to "move in" and start enjoying our stay immediately. My sixteen year old son opened the refrigerator and said, "It looks just like home." I did bring a lot of food. Your condo is so nice. It was very welcoming and fresh. It had everything we needed.

We had dinner at the Red Bar our first night; On Sunday we checked out the farmer's market at Rosemary and bought fresh vegetables, etc.; We attended the Great American Picnic at Watersound and enjoyed some good music, toured a model home, and the fireworks were fantastic; Monday we rented bikes for the week from Yellowfin at the General Store; We rode to Watercolor and Seaside several times, as well as the State Park, and the bikes made it super easy to check out the Grayton neigborhood and shops; Monday night we caught a concert at Watercolor and returned on Tuesday night for an outdoor movie; Wednesday with the threat of rain we headed to Destin for the required visit to the outlet mall but we had to cut it short as the sun popped out and we preferred to be on the beach; We bought red snapper, oysters, and shrimp from Goatfeathers and enjoyed several homecooked meals on the balcony; Thursday afternoon (after lunch at Shorty's) we made good on our promise to take the kids to Panama City where we rode scooters (not a good idea for me) walked around Pier Park and then played a round of miniature golf...We so much prefer the quieter lifestyle of Grayton and couldn't get back soon enough; Friday morning started out stormy with dark clouds and lightning but cleared up and we were able to mark the final items off our "to do list" which consisted of getting the right tshirt from the Zoo Gallery and my daughter and I hit the Shops of Grayton where we enjoyed talking to several of the shop owners; We had set up early on the beach, waited out the storm, and were rewarded with a wonderful (final) day at the beach.

It was a great vacation and we really enjoyed getting to know Grayton. My husband spent mornings watching the boats launch from the beach and got some great video of their "evacuation" on Friday morning during the quick storm. We stole much from the weathermen last week as the forecast for several days looked grim but never impacted our plans. We were on the beach every day. My son was actually hoping for a rainy day so we could play Monoply. We managed t

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this condo with my husband for 4 nights. We had a wonderful time staying at this condo. We ate our way down 30A. Another Broken Egg, Vue30A, Great Southern, Chirranga (sp). Great location. Small view that was really nice. The condo was so quiet and easy walk to the beach. The porch was amazing!

Very comfortable and cozy. Would definitely stay again!

Prefect Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great location close to the beach! Marla and Sid's condo was perfect for our family of four. Everything we could ever need was already there, even beach toys, chairs and umbrellas. Good views, clean and quiet. Sitting on the deck in the evenings and mornings was wonderful! Marla was so helpful and accommodating. We had a blast and look forward to coming back!

This was our second stay in Grayton Beach and our first time staying in this condo. The condo is steps away from the beach and Red Bar. It is clean, quiet, well maintained and well stocked. Marla was wonderful to work with and we can't wait to stay here again!

May in Grayton Beach

  • 5 of 5

I try to get to Grayton Beach every year. This has been only the second time I've stayed in this condo as I usually wait too long to schedule and it is already booked. But it is my favorite. The location of the condo is perfect for beach access and the second floor balcony affords wonderful breezes. Marla is a dream to work with and our vacation could not have been arranged more smoothly. We are already booking for next year.

Florida Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation at Grayton beach! The water was crystal clear and the community vibe is great. The condo is exactly as described, nicely equipped and cared for. It is a great get away at that price point. The owner was very pleasant to interact with and promptly refunded our security deposit with a kind note after our stay. We are returning to Grayton beach next year for a family reunion with our entire extended family.
