Great place to stay!
Great Location, but...
PROS: The Salty Dawg is in a terrific location in Grayton Beach - reasonable walking distance to the beach, shopping, and dining, and is a good size for families with children, having a split master floorplan with 3 BRs/2 Baths, 2 living areas, a dining table for 8, plus 4 barstools around a kitchen peninsula. There are also 2 sleeper sofas - one in the master BR, and one in the main living area. The kitchen provides plenty of dishes/glassware/silverware/cookware. There is a counter top microwave, toaster, and small toaster oven in addition to the stove/oven, refrigerator, and dishwasher. Little hotel-sized toiletry samples were in the bathrooms. The number of towels in each bathroom seemed to be adequate, although a few more hand towels would be appreciated. The master BR king-sized bed was very comfortable. There is a washer and dryer. The yard is spacious and shaded. There is a carport for two cars, and there's room for additional cars. There is a spacious wrap around deck with a few chairs on it. The Wi-Fi worked well.
CONS: We were only provided 2 dishwashers tabs, 2 garbage bags (no way to secure the top, except to tie it in a knot), a very tiny sample-sized bottle of Dawn dishwasher liquid, a kitchen sponge, and 1 roll of toilet paper in each bathroom for a week's stay for our family of 7. Fair warning: no other supplies were provided - bring your own. The freezer was iced up (perhaps a new gasket is needed?), and the ice maker was dicey. The dryer in the laundry room blocked access to the door to the back yard (the only exterior door, other than the front door). The gas grill did not work. Bring your own charcoal in order to use the charcoal grill also provided. The carpet in both the main living area and master bedroom need a deep cleaning; there was a musty odor in those rooms, and the carpet had many stains. The shower in the master bathroom leaked; we couldn't get it to turn completely off. The sink in the hall bathroom drained very slowly. The medium-sized television in the main living area is an old-fashioned one, and the flat screen in the second living area is very small. The non-carpeted floors had been vacuumed, but they're in a need of a scrubbing; in fact, the whole house could use a deep cleaning, not just the end-of-stay one done by the maids.
This house has the potential to be an absolutely WONDERFUL, 5-star house, if the concerns above were to be addressed.
Great spot. Very Roomy.
We had a great stay at Salty Dawg. Very clean and roomy. Bring toilet paper, garbage bags, foil, and tupaware. And sage... (if you know what I mean, we weren't the only ones there!)
Comfortable house, great location.
We had a great time at the Salty Dog. We loved being so close to everything but feeling a little bit of privacy with the trees and fenced in yard. We hung hammocks in the trees and enjoyed grilling out in the yard. The house was comfortable and had a lot of character. If you like to watch TV, you might be a bit disappointed but we are not big TV fans (there are 2 old TVs). Our only other complaint was that there was not one decent knife in the kitchen (bring your own knives). Great location in beautiful Grayton Beach.
Thank you for your review and feedback! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Salty Dawg, and we agree that it has the classic character and charm of Grayton. We are passing your comments along about the TVs and knives on to the homeowner and are appreciative of you bringing this to our attention. We hope you will come stay again soon!
