2 stars ONLY for location

  • 2 of 5

When I booked this property I noticed a review from2014 that the company had replied to as not viable. However i thought that in 3 yrs time the problems woud have been corrected! We had a very bad check in, in that the house had not been cleaned properly, the deck furniture were in a bad state, the door upstairs would not open, downstairs bedroom was very disappointing in size and has NO closet. There were beer cans and cups around back deck. All was reported and in no time cleaning crew came and cleaned the inside. The next day the doors were repaired and deck chairs replaced!! I did not report these things because my children did not tell me until we left because I was so upset with how much neededto be done to the place: There is not nearly enough water pressure upstairs sometimes barely enough to get a shower and the AC cannot handle the upstairs. It was HOT!! The location of this house is excellent but the hou needs ATTENTION!!! We did not leave the tent and the other debris around the deck, it was there when we arrived!! We were not overloaded in the house, we had 9.

Amazing location, run down house

  • 2 of 5

The location of this place is amazing! It is right on the beach and has beach views from many rooms (including 2 bedrooms). The problems I had were the house. This house says it is newly renovated but the only thing that looks new is the kitchen. The outside furniture and doorknobs were covered in rust. So bad I couldn't let my 15 month old outside (which sucks when you are on the beach). The window screen was coming off on one window, the master bedroom balcony doors WOULDN"T OPEN!!! That is my number one request when picking out a beach house is having the bedroom open to a balcony!!!! The house stays SOOOO hot! I am always cold and I was hot! They have signs by the thermostat saying you can not turn it below 72. If you don't like to be hot don't stay here! The house also looked like it had not been clean, our sheets were on inside out (with blood stains on them!!!!!!!!), crumbs everywhere, blood on stair way wall. Kitchen refrigerator leaks, fridge doesn't stay cold, bathroom faucet had a constant drip, 2 showers were clogged up and wouldn't drain, bathrooms look like they are from the 70's, one of the cabinets in the bathroom was falling off. The manager will prob say I could have called maintenance to come fix it but no one wants to have to deal with that while they are on vacation and they can't come redo the whole house! I feel like if something is maintained well it is always in good order. I shouldn't have to tell other people how to do their job and coming the fix a door, clean, etc isn't going to change anything. I have stayed in many places on VRBO and this by far is the most run down place. It is a big house and great location so if you don't care about the house condition this is your place. I just feel like I got ripped off for my son's first beach trip (even though we made the best of it).

Owner's Response: While we welcome all guest reviews, this guest’s comments are inaccurate – at best. The beach house was built in 2006, and was completely updated in early 2015 with brand new furnishings (indoor and outdoor), bedding, flooring, kitchen supplies, and paint. The photos on our VRBO advertisement are current, and represent the property exactly as it is. The guest who wrote this review contacted our office upon arrival and reported rust on the upstairs outdoor furniture. Our maintenance person went to the house and found some rust on one chair (due to the salty air), and wiped it away. While he was at the house, he asked the guest if anything else needed attention. The guest replied "Nope, everything is great!". There were no other complaints or suggestions received by the guest during her stay. After we received this review, our staff members checked the entire house for the issues claimed by the guest. They found no problems other than the need to lubricate the door handle upstairs leading to the balcony. We even sent our appliance repair guy to look at the refrigerator, and found no leaks or temperature issues. Our housekeeping staff is professional and thorough, and we rarely receive complaints with regard to cleaning. However, if the guest had informed us of her disappointment, we would gladly have sent our housekeeper back to take care of any issues necessary. Our goal is to exceed the expectations of our guests! For more accurate comments about the property, please refer to the other three reviews posted on VRBO that describe the property as the perfect spot for a private family beach vacation. We hope to see you at the beach!

Dream Beach House at Grayton Beach.

  • 5 of 5

We could not have chosen a more perfect vacation property. We wanted a house directly on the beach that was large enough for our extended family. This beach house is spacious and beautifully decorated. But, most important, the beach is right past the back deck. The water and beach are beautiful and ever present as the living room/dining room/kitchen and two of the bedrooms look directly onto the waves. Looking for a peaceful BEACH vacation--you can't do better than this. A great location, a great house, a great vacation!

Super vacation house! Super beach!

  • 5 of 5

What could be better than a house directly on the beach? A beachfront house on beautiful, sugar-white Grayton Beach with room for the whole family plus friends! The house itself is attractively decorated, comfortable, and spacious, but those are all just extras. The best thing is the gorgeous beach right outside the back door. This was the best vacation ever. We’ll be back!

Most beautiful beach! Loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

This is the most beautiful beach anywhere! You can walk right out to the sand and waves from the back door. We loved the location, and the house is large enough for a crowd! Our kids stayed on the beach all day. Wonderful vacation house!

Fishing in the gulf is ranked top in the nation! Grouper, snapper, amberjack to name a few. Whether you enjoy sport or bottom fishing it is in and around our area. Bay fishing for redfish & speckled trout is a 15 minute drive. Off shore boat with captain is available in downtown Grayton 1 mile away!
