About The Owner

We love the ocean and relaxed atmosphere in the Grayton Beach area and decided to buy our rental property in 2003. This is our only rental so we like to take care of making sure it's in top shape for our guests.

We have found Grayton Beach to be the perfect vacation get away where you can fully relax and enjoy all that available in the local area. Our children love playing on the beach and taking part in all the local activities. They also love swimming in the heated pool.

We hope you'll enjoy all that Grayton Beach has to offer. You'll want to keep coming back too! SD & Nancy

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose Beaches of South Walton

The beaches are incredibly unique with mesmerizing white sand and ocean water that changes from turquoise to emerald green, depending on the time of year.

Grayton Beach is one of only a few neighborhoods actually built within a State or National Park, and is a historical beach in Florida!

What makes this house unique

The house is located just a brief walk from the beach. Local activities include: Biking, Swimming, Snorkeling/Diving, Surfing, Paddle boarding, Walking, Restaurants, Fishing, Sailing, Amusement Park, Zoo/Wildlife Park, Shopping, Sightseeing, Spa Time, Waterskiing, Surfing, Mountain Biking, Wildlife Viewing, Hiking, Fishing, Cinemas/Movie Theaters, Submarine Museum, Cave snorkeling and much more!

Guestbook comments from the owner

After a truly wonderful holiday spent staying at your beautiful beach villa my wife and I feel compelled to write to you. As a visitor from Virginia we immediately fell in love with the local area and all it has to offer and were very surprised to find the location totally unspoilt. We found that the villa had everything we could have wished for, with comfortable air-conditioned spacious accommodation offering every modern amenity, a true home from home, plus the pool, which we really enjoyed. We also found that the close proximity of the villa to both the beach and the State Park a real bonus.

Once again thank you for a holiday of a lifetime in a truly idyllic setting.

Yours sincerely

Richard and Janet

Wonderful Week in GRAYTON Beach

  • 4 of 5

Our family loved GRAYTON beach and the house was very comfortable. It was a short distance to the beach and the heated pool was wonderful. The view of the ocean from the front porch and master balcony has been obstructed by new construction and is not nearly as expansive as pictured, but it can still be seen and heard from the porches. The only hiccup we experienced was that we had no wifi and thus very limited television and no computer access while there due to a problem with the cable provider, which was very disappointing. The owners worked to rectify the situation but were unable to do so until our last day. As a result, they gave us a gift card to a local restaurant where we enjoyed a great family meal. We really enjoyed the fact that so many shops, restaurants, and activities were accessible by bike or on foot!

Relaxing and Fun week in downtown Grayton Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect house for our family's beach vacation. It is in the perfect location right in the heart of downtown Grayton Beach. We parked the car and didn't use it the entire time. A quick 2 minute walk to the beach, restaurants and shopping made it so convenient! We loved dining at Chiringo and Red Bar! We rented bicycles and rode to Seaside for more lunch and shopping options.

The home is beautifully decorated with everything you need. Every room was comfortable and there was plenty of room for everyone. We especially loved the pool!

Cannot wait to come back again soon!

Great Week at the Toulouse Mongoose House

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a great vacation in Grayton Beach at the Toulouse Mongose . The house was plenty spacious for our group of 8, well equipped and nicely decorated. The kids really loved the pool as well as the beautiful beach. Would love to return to this area in spring or fall when it wasn't so hot and would definitely stay here again.

Toulouse Mongoose 2016

  • 5 of 5

This is my families second trip to the Goose! This house is perfect for Grandparents to Grandkids. The layout allows for everyone to have their privacy and their own area to themselves. The third floor works great for older adults while the basement bunkroom is great for our 3 kids. When it's time for everyone to come together, the kitchen area provides a great place for the family to gather. Further, the pool and outdoor area is wonderful after a long day at the beach. It provides a great place to relax outdoors, watch the kids swim, and cookout around the pool. We have plans to return a third time in 2017!

Charming beach retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Toulouse Mongoose multiple times and keep coming back again because it's the perfect family beach getaway. There is enough room for our 5 person family plus we had family and friends come and go throughout the week. The kids get so excited about the spacious bunkroom and adjoining room, perfect for a nanny, teens, or another family. The Master Bedroom on the top floor has its own deck with views of the ocean. It's GREAT having a private pool when not enjoying the nearby beach and state park. The laid back Grayton beach village is close with the famous Red Bar, great to listen to live music for the whole family. The owners keep the furnishings up to date and attractive. We took our rental bikes to Watercolor and Seaside on multiple occasions for numerous activities. 30-A is our favorite stretch of beaches. The Toulouse Mongoose is our go-to getaway. You'll love it!
