Overview

About the property

STOKED: adjective - to be 'stoked' is to be completely and intensely enthusiastic, exhilarated, or excited about something. Those who are stoked all of the time know this; being stoked is the epitome of all being. When one is stoked, there is no limit to what one can do. Being too stoked just means that you're still not stoked enough.

--Urban Dictionary

So are you STOKED about your next beach trip? If not, you’re about to be! STOKED is the new gold standard for Grayton Beach Surf Shacks. Following a complete interior and exterior renovation in 2014, STOKED is being offered as a short-term rental for the first time beginning July 2014.

You’ve waited all year—why would you settle for anything less than the best house in the perfect location? You know where you want to be—on the Gulf, in Grayton Beach, near the Red Bar. At STOKED, you’ll have an amazing view of the Gulf from either of the two spacious decks, in the heart of historic Grayton Beach, and so close to the world famous Red Bar your pager will buzz while you’re sitting on your own couch!

STOKED has covered parking on the street level (a must-have for Grayton Beach) and living areas on the second and third floors. Add a sleeping porch and you are totally covered—naps in the shade and sunset views of the Gulf! The house is laid out perfectly, with:

• 3 Bedrooms (1 King, 2 Queens)

• Queen sleeper in 3rd floor Living Room;

• Full bed swing on Sleeping Porch;

• 2 full Baths;

• Outdoor enclosed hot water shower;

• New 39” flat screen TV’s in every bedroom;

• Gourmet kitchen with new appliances, custom cabinets and granite countertops;

• Covered parking with room for 4+ cars;

• Beautiful Gulf Views!

If you like Seaside, Watercolor or Rosemary, you will LOVE Grayton Beach! You are close to everything, but far enough away to have plenty of privacy. Surrounded on all sides by State Parks, it is a true piece of Old Florida history.

Do you like to shop? Grayton Beach is perfectly located between Panama City Beach and Destin—you have Pier Park on one side and Silver Sands on the other! You can walk to shopping in Grayton Beach, Seaside and Watercolor. Shopping for essentials is easy, too, with two Publix Supermarkets close by, a new Wal-Mart down the street and the Grayton Corner Store for everything you forgot on your grocery run.

Do you play golf? There are 8 championship courses near Grayton Beach, including Camp Creek and Shark’s Tooth!

Do you struggle with what you hate more, shopping or golf? Perfect! There’s tons to do in Grayton Beach, including:

• S-U-R-F-I-N-G

• Laying out on white sandy beaches

• YOLO boarding in Western Lake

• Charter fishing trips that launch right from the beach

• Snorkeling and diving

• Hiking and mountain biking in Grayton Beach State Park

• Jogging or biking on the Hwy 30A 18-mile paved bike path

• Picnics in Eden Gardens State Park

• Walking to the best restaurants on 30A—The Red Bar, Shorty’s, Borago, Hibiscus, Pandora’s, Grayton Bar & Grill, Another Broken Egg, Hurricane Oyster Bar, The Pickle Factory, etc...

Grayton Beach sits halfway between the new Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport in Panama City and Northwest Florida Regional Airport in Fort Walton Beach. With multiple American, Delta, United/Continental and Southwest flights daily, Grayton Beach is easy to get to from anywhere.

About Jennifer Martin

We are the Martin Family and we LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Grayton Beach! We have two rental properties in Grayton (Stoked and McDonald House), and we live in Grayton Beach year-round. We're always nearby if you need anything during your stay.

Jennifer Martin purchased this house in 2014

Why Jennifer Martin chose Beaches of South Walton

'Stoked' is the former residence of the Stokes family, who lived in and cared for this home for many years. We were truly blessed to purchase it in 2014, and are happy to share it with our friends--old and new.

What makes this house unique

Stoked is the heartbeat of Grayton Beach. When you stay here, you'll know what we mean. Your views from the deck allow you to view a wide variety of wildlife--the Gulf of Mexico in front, State Parks on each side, and the Red Bar--the other 'wild' life! Don't worry, if you're staying at Stoked, you won't have to wait in line ;)

Piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome location and accommodations! I research months before booking family vacations, and we felt this was one of our best vacations yet! The owners were extremely accommodating. They really have thought of everything you could need while on vacation. It was wonderful waking up every morning to the awesome views, easy access to the beach, and convenient location to several restaurants. The home was immaculate upon arrival, and we did not have any issues during our week long stay. The only issue was that we had to leave!

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

As if strip to the beach isn't always amazing on its own, staying at this property located right on Grayton beach with beautiful views of the ocean takes beach vacationing to a whole new level of awesome. I enjoyed waking up each morning to beach sunrises and loved enjoying quiet mornings on the comfy porch bed swing. Both the upper and lower decks had gorgeous views!

Inside each room is beautifully appointed, a treat in itself, with modern but not fussy design that has a laid back beach vibe. Love the little touches like the cozy throws for cool beach nights and well stocked kitchen for at home living while on your vacay.

Love the layout of the home, the excellent location to the beach and Red Bar !! This was our 3rd year staying here with family and would not consider any other home,,, we love everything about it !! Nice linens, comfortable beds, plenty of TV's, and sitting areas plus a bottle of wine to enjoy!! A new swinging bed on the front porch that was amazing!!

Fantastic home on Grayton Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This property is fantastic. It was very well located with only a very quick walk to the beach. There were beach chairs and umbrellas for our use and even beach toys for the kids!

Within walking distance to Grayton's Red Bar and Chiringo but not noisy at all! Home was a total oasis. Very well decorated and wonderfully comfortable couches! Kitchen was well equipped. Owner was very quick to respond when I had one minor issue. She sent her maintenance by right away and it was fixed before I returned from the beach. One more thing to mention... Towels were awesome. I love it when VRBO rentals have great towels!

I had never stayed in Grayton before this trip, but found it to be a fantastic little beach town. Much quieter than Destin/Sandestin area and even quieter than Seaside. Seaside was only a five minute drive down 30A and was great to hit for lunch but nicer not to be staying there, as it was a little busy.

Beach was amazing. Wonderful for our preschool-aged kids. Large beach. Not crowded.

Overall fantastic place to stay. Jennifer's home was wonderful. Such a relaxing vibe. I hope I can come back to stay at Stoked soon.
