This was an absolutely phenomenal vacation. The house was great. There was tons of space and plenty of open areas. The beds were comfortable, and we all had our own bathrooms (we went as 3 couples). The deck had a beautiful view of the ocean and the sitting area around the pool was fantastic for hanging out. The beach is absolutely beautiful, literally one of the best beaches I have ever been to. Being able to go back and forth between the pool and the beach was the best. This was our first time at Grayton, but it will not be our last.
We love this place!
We have stayed at Southern Sons East three times now, and we are always very satisfied with the price and the accommodations. You cannot beat the location and the view! This house has a nice layout, with plenty of beds and bathrooms. It is perfect for two families. The front deck is a great place to sit in the morning and the evening. And the pool area is perfect for play and relaxation. And the beach...Grayton Beach is the BEST. And it is just a few steps from the house.
Tom and Becky have always been so friendly and easy to work with, but this trip they went above and beyond. We realized when we got back home that a bag of laundry had accidentally been placed in the garbage can. It had several of our favorite items in it, including a t-shirt that my teenage son had just purchased at Seaside. So I asked Tom if there was any way he could have someone local try to retrieve the bag from the garage. And he did! And he shipped it to us in Atlanta a few weeks later! We have rented homes in many locations, and I seriously doubt that there are many owners that would make that kind of effort.
Great House, Great Owners!
We have stayed in the Gulf Trace neighborhood many times over the years, and we love it! We had 4 families in the house, including 8 kids. We had plenty of space and never felt crowded. The private pool was a definite plus for the kids when we had had enough of the beach for the day. The kids also loved the ice cream truck that stopped in front of the house every evening! The house had everything described on the listing and more. The only problem we had was with the air conditioning one evening. We didn't realize it until around 7 pm, but Tom & Becky responded immediately and it was fixed in just a few hours. Amazing, since it was after hours for the repair man! Tom was very prompt in answering any questions that we had both before and during our stay. We had a great week of making memories! Thanks Tom & Becky!
What an awesome time we had. We are veteran 30-A vacationers and had a blast in Gulf Trace, specifically in this home. Four families were able to co-exist peacefully for the entire time and the views are just like beachfront. The pool is fantastic and one of the largest we've seen in a rental. We would defininitely be ready to recommend Southern Sons West to anyone who asks.
Great Family Vacation
We had an excellent family vacation at beautiful Grayton Beach. Thanks to Tom and family for allowing us to share the week at their beach house. The weather was great, the company outstanding, and the memories that will last a lifetime.
This was a great vacation! There was a big mix of people family, friends, boyfriends and in-laws!! We all felt comfortable and never felt like we lacked for our own space! The house was everything the description said it would be and more! The owner was responsive to all my many questions before the trip and went way above and beyond when he shipped my favorite pair of jeans back to me because I had left them in a drawer! The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped and fun to prepare meals in! My daughter is already planning when we can go back! Thank you so much for a fun filled memorable vacation!!!
