Great location on the beach. The house is nice but in need of some deep cleaning and repair. The ice maker on the fridge has a broken button and the coffee pot doesn't work well. There are plenty of dishes but a little lacking on other kitchen items. The can opener was broken and there was no cookie sheet. The biggest problem was cleanliness. The dishes appeared to have been put away dirty so we washed them all again! We saw several bugs in the house and although we never saw a mouse there was evidence there had been some at one time. Overall could be a great place with a little TLC and some deep cleaning. Was also disappointed in the amount of fees associated with the rental. We stayed for a long weekend (3 nights) and the fees and taxes were almost more than the nightly fee.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location! The beach was perfect and the house was nice. Not crowded and on a more private part of the beach. We had 12 in our party and everyone had plenty of room and hot water. Would definitely stay there again.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to be farther from the crowd with the beach in our backyard. This is the place for that. Bike and running paths galore. General store, coffee shop, restaurants with no wait all minutes away.

The place was better than the pictures. Plenty of room for two families (we took 6 kids and two couples). Both master bedrooms are identical and roomy each with balcony access.

This is the place you want for no crowd and your own beach, especially at night. We loved it big time.

Beautiful Grayton Beach. Excellent Vacation Beach House.

  • 5 of 5

Grayton Beach reminds me of Florida vacations when I was a kid. A beach house directly on the sugar-white sandy beach with nary a high-rise in sight. Except I'm sure the beach houses my parents rented couldn't hold a candle to this one. We're a family of six, and we shared the house with my two sisters and their families. There was sleeping (and eating) space for everyone, and the décor is straight out of a magazine. There were no arguments over rooms--they're all beautifully decorated. There are two master suites. But the best thing is the beach, right outside the veranda. When you are not on the beach, you can see the beach. That's what I call a vacation!

Perfect beach house! Perfect beach!

  • 5 of 5

Grayton beach is gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! I'm so glad we decided to stay in this wonderful house directly on the beach. We vacationed with two other families, and still there was plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably. The house is bright and cheerful and well-maintained. I was impressed by how clean everything was. (I'd like to hire your housekeeper :-) The photos don't lie. We'll be back to vacation here again!
