Why Cole Taylor chose Beaches of South Walton

Quiet,no traffic,{the street dead ends on the corner,} but close to the beach, Western Lake and the Western Lake boat dock/crabbing pier. No need to find a parking spot to go to the RED BAR and SHORTY'S. The Grayton General store and HIBISCUS, for breakfast, are close enough to walk or bike to.

Reviewer Comments:

We enjoyed our stay at the blue crab over Thanksgiving week. It was very clean and nicely furnished. The kitchen was well-equipped and it is in easy walking distance of the beach. The washing machine was a little difficult to start and I believe that the dryer may need a new heating element as it took a very long time to dry a load of clothes or towels.

Owner's Response: 1) Update: new quiet functioning washer & dryer installed on December 2016. Thank you for the comment on the washer & dryer. The current set is approximately 5 years old. We will get both units serviced and/or purchase a new set in December 2016.

We had a wonderful week at The Blue Crab. We come to Grayton every summer and this was our favorite house to stay in yet! The house was clean and had plenty of space for our crew and lab!

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed here in July as we joined a larger family reunion in town. Our party at the Blue Crab consisted of 7 adults, a toddler and a baby. The property is very conveniently located-a short walk to the beach or the public launch/dock for western lake. We brought kayaks from home and easily wheeled them down to the ramp for delightful paddles on western lake. The beach was very close, and the pool was a delight and a big hit with the 2 1/2 year old. The property was generally clean and maintained ok. On our 2 previous visits to Grayton, we had rented directly from owners who are in the area. Those properties were a step above in care and equipment. There were some items we had to address on arrival with the management company, which was very responsive. The wifi was out, some bedding was stained, a closet door was off the track and a toilet seat was loose. These items were resolved quickly, but should have been noticed prior to our arrival. In addition, we had to wait 45 minutes past the 4pm checkin for the cleaning crew to finish. (If WE arrive early or leave late there are substantial penalty fees). In other properties we have rented, they had some basic amenties: some condiments and spices (salt, pepper, hot sauce, etc.); laundry detergent; etc. An unexpected and appreciated bonus from the rental agency was a $280 credit for equipment from a beach supplies rental company. We used it for 4 bikes and a boogie board. They were waiting when we arrived and very nice to use throughout the week. It is a very convenient area to bike...and much easier than drivijng and parking.

Owner's Response: Small things can get overlooked during the busy season. We believe your issues were handled appropriately. However, the if there was staining on some of the bedding that should have been discovered prior to your arrival. In regards to amenities, the agency provides starter kitchen supplies for each new arriving renter. The starter pack has items like paper towels, coffee, dish washing soap, etc. This should have been in the house upon your arrival. There is also soap, towels, and toilet paper in the bathrooms. This is standard with all the houses with the agency. We prefer not to leave any other items out to prevent spoilage and/or contamination among renters. In regards to the cleaning, they have until 5pm to get the house cleaned per the contract. Although they usually are finished before 4pm, they occasionally get delayed because there are multiple houses to clean and some units take longer depending on how the prior renter left the premises.

The house provided plenty of room for families with multiple teens. Kitchen is fully stocked for all your cooking needs. We loved the pool area and screened porch at night. Easy stroll to the beach, Red Bar and our new favorite Chiringo!

Overall the house was great. very confidently located to beach and restaurants and an easy bike ride to most of what we wanted to do. However, we arrived at 4:30 and had to wait about 30 minutes before we could begin moving in because the housekeeper was running behind and the fitted sheets on all of the beds fit poorly and had to be put back on daily. We will rent this house again!

Owner's Response: Hi Karen, thanks for staying with us and the input. Please excuse the housekeeping delay. There are really no excuses except they can get very backed up during the summer because it is so busy and sometimes they have to deal with unexpected issues like previous renters not leaving rental houses in the best condition. Also, we would rather have it cleaned properly for your visit instead of having them rush and not clean it well. Again, we regret your wait but glad you stayed with us. All the rental houses use standard sheets but we will have to evaluate the issue to see how we can remedy the situation.
