'Grey Whale' Sun to Sun rental

Member of Gulf County FL Tourist Development

**New sofas and carpet being changed before the start of 2018**

Beautiful Executive Gulf Front Home by Teresas Beach Homes. Professionally decorated by Melissa of Joseph's Cottage in St Joe. She has decorated some of the most upscale homes in the area and did another fantastic job with Grey Whale.

This gorgeous new home towers above anything around it so the views are the best you can get. You can see for miles in either direction. No highways to cross as this home sits right on the beach, just walk out the door and you are there!

The Grey Whales interior is nicely trimmed out with vaulted ceilings, crown molding, granite counters and real wood floors, yes, I said 'real' not that fake stuff..... a built in desk in a private nook on the master suite level along with a mini bar with fridge and coffeepot for that cool drink or morning coffee while enjoying the outstanding views from the private deck.

There are Tv's in every bedroom as well as the living room. The living tv has a blueray player with internet capability. We also have a stereo equipped with an ipod station and a corner table for card playing or puzzle time.

The kitchen is very well stocked. There are extras like a crockpot, electric griddle with of coarse all the regular small appliances.

The decks have custom made captains chairs and a table with chairs. Plenty of furnishings for the quiet time watching the views.


Entry level: Parking, grill area, hot & cold shower, fish cleaning station.

1st level open kitchen, living and dining rooms with mounted flat screen tv with dvr.

2nd level will has3 bedrooms, 1 king gulf front with private bath and deck, 2 sets of twin/twin bunks and a room with 2 extra long twins that share a bath in the hall. Laundry area.

3rd level is the private king master suite with large garden tub, tiled shower, mini bar with fridge & sink, built in desk and private balcony. The built in desk is located in a private nook so you could work early or late without disturbing anyone.

About the Area

This home is conveniently located on the pet friendly beaches of Gulf county but only 2/10ths of a mile from the Bay county/Mexico Beach line. There is tons to do here. The El Governor Motel rents jet skies, parasail and they are always adding things to do. The City Pier just 3 miles away. Lots of restaurants to choose from. Some of my favorites are Killers Seafood, Toucans, The fish house who does breakfast as well. Want something quick, Denny's Dawgs sits right down from Gulf Foods with his hotdog stand. Gulf foods too is a place to shop for treasures, groceries or have a shirt airbrushed.

I have no doubt this home is going to be a favorite with its views and great amenities. Come see for yourself.!

Perfect retreat!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family rented The Grey Whale home for a full week and it was fabulous. When you make the turn from the stairs into the kitchen you are greeted by an awesome beachfront view of the ocean. The house was well stocked with any utensil you might need to use to cook. The beds were very comfortable, especially the top floor master suite. There is a deck on each floor so it's great to choose where you would like to enjoy your morning coffee or a nice drink. The house is located close to everything you might want, several restaurants, grocery stores, and gift shops. The outdoor shower to rinse off was a favorite perk of ours. You really couldn't ask for better oceanfront views either. We had a great experience with renting the property from Teresa and Terri. They were incredible to work with and I would recommend Teresa's Beach Rentals to anybody looking for a great, clean, comfy vacation home. I almost forgot, our dogs loved, loved, loved the pet friendly beach.

The perfect beach house.

  • 5 of 5

My family rented The Grey Whale for a week and it couldn't have been any nicer. The house itself is very inviting and nicely furnished. The beds were very comfortable and I especially liked the porches in each level.

Being right on the beach was perfect for the grandchildren and since it was just a short walk from the house, it was great for all of us "grown-ups" that had to carry the tent, the chairs, and all of the beach toys! The location of the house was convenient to shopping and restaurants.

We will definitely consider renting from Teresa's Beach rentals again!

My wife and I took our dog Oliver for his first beach trip. The Grey Whale was perfection. For starters it was perfectly clean. (My wife is a REAL stickler for cleanliness and The Grey Whale passed with flying colors.) The kitchen was perfectly stocked. We wanted/wished for nothing the entire week. The decor was perfectly tasteful and comfortable. However, the most perfect thing of all were the sunsets! Our Creator blessed us daily with the most exquisite sunsets over the Gulf you can imagine. Better bring your dog for sure, or you're likely to feel a bit out of place in this community. EVERYONE had a dog and they all were so well mannered and friendly. Can't wait to go back!!!

Heavenly Getaway!!!!! PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

From phone call to book, our experience was great! I spoke with Teresa, she is a true professional, gave us excellent advise & recommendations. We really enjoyed the amazing beach & the house was extremely nice but a few stairs less would have been better for our older knees.Accomodations with veranda on each level was great!

My entire family loved every minute of this vacation & if we decide to do this again Grey Whale is it & my first call is to Teresa. Everything you could need is there. This house was perfect to enjoy the beach Marietta, Georgia Family

Loved, loved, loved this place.....PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

This place was just amazing! Our family had such a wonderful week! Can't wait to do it again! This house was just perfect! Had everything you can think of that you might clean and well furnished. Right on the beach was perfect! We could sit on the deck and watch the kids play. The guys would fish and scallop and the girls would lay on the beach and soak up the sun. Ate great seafood every night! The rental agency was top of the line! Just can't say enough to do this place justice!!!! Great place to stay for any vacation!!!
