Spectacular view and lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Seabatical. The view was great from all the multiple balconies. The neighborhood was delightful-right in the middle of Grayton State Park and Seabatical is situated between the gulf and Alligator Lake. So again-great views of wonderful crystal white sandy beaches but also trees and birds. Lovely! The kitchen is well-stocked and the house is comfortable, clean and charming. We enjoyed our stay at Seabatical immensely and we were very pleased with the service from Sunburst Beach Vacations.

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

We shared the house with another family for the week of March 10-17 and couldn't ask for anything more. It's a beautiful property with a well-stocked kitchen and lovely decorating. Close to the gorgeous white-sand beach. We had unbelievably good weather (80s and sunny) throughout the week. Kids loved the pool. We used the deck and screened porch a lot. Hated to leave! Hope to be back soon. Thanks!

Our family stayed in June 2009. Had an absolutely wonderful time! Accommodations were ideal. The lower BR was sort of quirky but a plus. Highly recommend this place and kudos to the owners for furnishiing it so nicely and completely.
