​Abaco is a fantastic beach home, recently renovated with larger decks. It's become a favorite in Grayton Beach with an incredible 180 degree, unobstructed view of the most beautiful landscape Northwest Florida has to offer. (Southern Living magazine, May 2011 edition) Abaco is uniquely located on the outfall of Western Lake, as well as lovely Grayton Beach with its sugar white sands. Enjoy beautiful sunrises over Western Lake and indescribable sunsets over the Gulf. There is even a hot tub on the porch for you to unwind in after a busy day. Lots of extras ensure a memorable stay, including five rooms with king beds and one room with custom queen bunk beds, each bunk with a built in 19" flat screen TV. The other five rooms are all equipped with TV's and DVD players. The kitchen is equipped with two dishwashers, two refrigerators and a five burner stove, ice maker and most everything you need for gourmet meal preparation. In the great room, the Bose surround sound system and the 46" flat screen TV with DVD player are perfect for entertaining. The covered downstairs carport has a hot and cold outside shower and a private dock to the lake. The world famous Red Bar restaurant is a two minute walk away. It's a short drive or bike ride to Seaside and Watercolor, along Scenic Hwy. 30A, for additional family activities, shopping and dining.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We've stayed in a variety of houses along 30A and in the Grayton Beach area and this is the best by far. Having the lake at our back porch was super, especially since the gulf was so rough. Will be back next year and hopefully years to come.

Unbeatable family time

  • 5 of 5

My family and I traveled here for the holiday season and are thrilled to be coming back this summer. This house was beyond beautiful, inside and outside. The spacious decks offered the most wonderful views and we even got to use the hot tub on the back porch over looking the water. Additionally, there is nothing better than waking up in the morning to the sound of the water and the beach right outside your doors. My whole family fell in love with this property and we cannot wait to come back in August and every other summer for many years to come!
