About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-13)

Set in the idyllic village of Grayton Beach, this cottage was built in 2014. This beautifully styled home was designed by award-winning architect and town planner for Seaside, Thomas Christ. The exotic pool/spa area feel like a private oasis in the center of the village. Every detail has been attended to with lots of loving attention, from the leathered granite countertops and gourmet stainless steel appliances to the kids’ media/activity room. There is a queen-size swing bed and rocking chairs on the front porch to lounge on. The front porch is screened to give the ample space a room-like feel while being outdoors and watching all that happens on DeFuniak Street. The back porch abuts the beautiful pool, which is directly accessible off the porch steps. There is also a heated spa for those cooler days and nights.

The main cottage has 2 King bedrooms on the main level, each with private bath and a flat screen TV. There is another King bedroom upstairs also with a flat screen TV. A "kids room" with 3 twin beds and media/playroom is also on located on the 2nd level. The 3rd full bath is located on the 2nd level.

The backyard is the perfect place for cooking outdoors with a gas grill provided.

There is also a 1 bedroom carriage house on the property that may be rented separately or in conjunction with the main cottage if you need additional space.

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 large family or multiple families 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.

Great house for our family.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have stayed at Pelican,s Nest for our annual vacation. Not to be disappointed. The guest house was perfect to allow the grown kids with their children to stay in the main house. It is literally 1,000 steps to the waters edge. When we had issues they were there to fix them promptly. Beware the internet is not stellar anywhere along this strip. Not enough cell towers to handle the volume!

Great property. Close to beach and plenty of space for family.

Nice open concept living space. Relaxing porches on front and rear of the house with day bed swings which were a family favorite.

Wonderful location - beautiful property

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Pelican's Nest with a group of friends - four couples, eight in total.

The location was ideal. Easy to find, quick walk to the beach and close to all the Grayton Beach favorites like Red Bar and the little shops. The house was beautiful inside and out with plenty of room for all of us. The large table was perfect for all the great meals we shared. The sleeping beds on the front and back porches were awesome especially after a day at the beach. The kitchen was well equipped for everything we needed to cook and enjoy group meals. The house had an open floor plan and the layout was terrific.

Some of the little conveniences were missing from the house. We ran the dishwasher everyday, it would have been helpful to have a couple more dishwasher soap tabs as we ran out at the end. There were only one garbage bag per can, we needed many more as we needed to take out the trash and recycle daily. We also would have liked more than one dish towel and dishcloth. A small rug in each bathroom would have been great. Small things but slightly inconvenient.

Lastly, as Floridian's and we understand that as per code, the need for the dreaded pool alarm. The alarm had to be pushed every time you came in and out by the pool. The alarm is annoying and loud. This is not a negative per se, just be aware if you are renting this property.

Overall, the property is wonderful. The house is a great choice for Grayton Beach!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We provide starter quantities of dish tabs, trash bags, toilet paper, soap, paper towels etc. Because group sizes vary each group should plan to bring or purchase any items your group might require in excess of to the starter quantities provided. Any property with a pool is required by Florida State law to be equipped with a pool alarm. This is to attempt to prevent accidental drownings. There are bypass buttons on the interior and exterior of the house that are at a height so that a responsible adult my reach the button and press to avoid setting off the alarm and allow entry or departure from the house.I'm glad you enjoyed your visit.

Beautiful relaxing beach home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect! Beautifully decorated and comfortable beds made for a great week. The kitchen had everything I needed. The porch swings are the best! Easy walk to the beach, restaurants, and shopping. We plan on returning.

Was perfect for our girls' trip.

  • 4 of 5

We had a family girls' weekend trip in February. The weather was warm in the afternoons and cool mornings and evenings. The back porch was wonderful for our morning coffee and afternoon wine gatherings. The rooms and bathrooms worked very well for our group. Clean, neat and comfortable.
