The neighborhood boasts two private pools (the smaller one is heated) and tennis courts. After enjoying the beach or pools all day, view the golden sunsets on the beach or on Grayt Tides private, third-story deck with slight ocean and beach views.
It's a 10 minute stroll (or park by the east gate and cut the time in half) to get to the beach via a private gated boardwalk, shaded by a canopy of trees, from the neighborhood that will lead you to the white sands. You will be amazed by the beach with rolling dunes and blue waters at the end of the boardwalk. Kick back, relax and enjoy your day! The beach is private so it is never crowded. Most walkways to the beach on 30A are very steep, however, this private walkway is mostly flat. In addition to the ocean, there are two gorgeous Coastal Dune Lakes located right by the house.

Lovely, spacious home near beautiful private beach
We enjoyed a family vacation in Grayton Beach, late Dec.-early Jan. and stayed in this lovely house in a quiet gated community. With five bedrooms, 4 baths, a large kitchen and great room, there was plenty of space for our extended family. It was a ten minute walk to a beautiful, private beach, the last part was a boardwalk through a nature preserve. There was a gate with a security code to enter to beach area, which malfunctioned the second day, leaving it difficult to get to the beach until it was repaired a day later. The code on the house door also did not always work. The lower level furnace was not working since the weather turned cool, but was quickly repaired. Also the dishwasher did not work well. These concerns were reported and I am sure they were taken care of. Overall we really enjoyed staying in this home and love the area. If only it was directly on the beach, it would be about perfect!
The home is lovely and in a quaint neighborhood. If you have small children and a lot of "equipment" to bring to the beach, it is a bit of a hike to get there. While it is a relatively short walk, if you have chairs, umbrellas, and towels, it is a cumbersome path and a good 15 minutes.
great family home
This home way great for our big family plenty of space for the grown up to relax and the kids to play together. Not that far from the beach maybe a ten minute walk through a gorgeous preserve and through the dunes which is pretty cool. The management company was great to work with also.
perfect house for our needs
spent a great week here with 3 generations ages 4 to 69. so much fun. everyone loved the house and the surrounding property. quiet area but easy access to the hustle and bustle of more congested areas for shopping and dining. loved the private beach access. hope to be back another year.
Best Vacation Rental Ever11
We had one of our best vacations ever at your home. The decorating and comfort cannot be beat. From the minute that we walked in, we knew it would be hard to leave after just a week. It is obvious that you put so much time and care into creating the perfect vacation home for renters and we were thrilled to find that it looks exactly like the pictures on VRBO. Every part of your house invited us to relax and enjoy our time together as a family. It is perfectly situated for up to three families (for those who like to travel with other families). The beds and pillows are extremely comfortable and I can tell you splurged on the linens, which adds to the comfort. We loved the gated community. There was no traffic on the neighborhood streets, so we felt safe letting the kids ride bikes and scooters outside while we sat on the porch and relaxed. The walk to the beach is about 10 min (no more) and most of it is on a shaded boardwalk with only a few stairs. We have been coming to the beaches of 30A for years, but this was the first time we have stayed at Grayton Beach. I think the private stretch of beach that your neighborhood has is hands down the BEST beach area on all of 30A. It was not crowded at all which I assume is because there is such limited access for anyone other than renters in your neighborhood and one small condominium. Also, that area of beach has freshwater ponds right next to the ocean, which is extremely unique. The kids played in these as much, if not more, than in the ocean. The little ponds have tiny fish and crabs that the kids spent hours catching. There were so few people on that stretch of beach, so it was easy to sit, relax and watch the kids. We brought bikes with us and rode to Seaside and Watercolor. This is a very easy, flat bike ride. We were so surprised when we got to Seaside because it was wall to wall people. We quickly realized that you have the best of both worlds at your house: it is private, laid back and relaxing without the crowds but if you are in need of more action (that involves more people) you can easily get to it. We used your grill almost every night. We went to Goatfeather's Fish Market every day and the guy would tell us what fresh fish just came in and how to grill it. The kitchen has every single thing we could have needed and more. I love that you had a nice blender that made the perfect margarita. Thank you so much for a great vacation! We will be back!!!!!!!
Wow! Thank you for your thorough review, we love hearing such great feedback from our guests. We hope to see you soon!
Best Beach in Florida
As a native Floridian, I know my beaches. Santa Rosa Beach is top notch and my stay at the house named Grayt Beach was incredible. House was immaculate, private beach access was awesome, and the emerald ocean water makes me wonder why I left the South. The place is exactly how you see it in the pictures. My advice is GO. Have some fun. And write about your experience in the log book at the house. I did.. Eric
