Charming 1950's cottage has been totally renovated, offering all it's original charm with modern conveniences. Old hardwood floors, original stainless steel countertops and tongue and groove walls with modern appliances, designer bathrooms and kitchen, custom cabinets and top of the line mattresses.

The cottage was designed for the family with young children. The tasteful 'Winnie the Pooh' bedroom is designed with a Pooh-like tree to crawl between beds. The kids bunkroom sleeps five children and has a private bath with kid-sized toilet and tub--complete with outhouse door. Each bunk offers its own reading lights. The room is stocked with kids toys, games and a large flat-screen TV with DVD player and many kids' movies. There is a high chair, pack and play and wagon(for trips to the beach).The private pool was designed with the kids in mind. The 15-by-20-foot pool is both heated and cooled. It has a additional nine-by-nine-foot sunning shelf/shallow area with a water wall. It uses salt water filtration- no harmful chlorine. Perfect for relaxing, the outdoor area also has a gas grill and Big Green Egg.

The adults in the family will enjoy the beautifully-furnished bedrooms, each with a queen bed and the modern bathrooms and kitchen designed by an award winning kitchen/bath designer. There are additional flat screen televisions in the master and living room- with cable and movie channels available. iMac computer in house. Wireless internet provided.

The cottage is two short blocks from the beautiful beaches offering both the ocean and the lake outflow, where small kids congregate to play in the shallow, warm waters and catch small sea creatures. Just one block from the area's best known restaurant, The Red Bar, there will be no more two-hour waits for a table. Just wait on your porch swing and enjoy the ambiance of the area.

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time at lollygag. The location was very close to the beach, red bar, and other good spots. The house was very charming and loved the salt water pool and fenced in backyard. We can't wait to go back. Thank you for opening up your charming home to us!

Lovely Getaway, Prime Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I met some friends at Lollygags for the weekend. It is a beautiful getaway. Exceptionally well decorated with kitchen and facilities much better than our own! The bedrooms are roomy and cozy. It is perfectly situated just a few minutes walk away from the beach and one of Graytons most famed restaurants, Red Bar. We spent a few days at the beach, which was lovely and much less crowded than usually 30A beaches. Nice pool in backyard for relaxing in the afternoons.

We love Lollygags and will definitely be back! Our favorite place to stay in Grayton.

Great House, Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at Lollygag Too over New Years Eve. The house was perfect for all four of us. It's a short stroll from the Red Bar and Grayton Beach but has a secluded private feel. The charming style and decor really stood out compared to other homes we've visited. Based on the configuration, this house is best for two couples with children or 3 couples. The cozy living room and front porch made for a nice lay-in on New Years Day.

Wonderful time in Grayton Beach

  • 5 of 5

This house is wonderful! Ecerything in the home is high quality from the linens to the cookware. The decor is awesome. The location is perfect close enough to ride bikes to seaside but far enough away to be cozy and quant. I would rent this again and again.

Wonderful and Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our first stay at Lollygag Too and we will be back! I can't say enough about how wonderful our experience has been. The home and area are wonderful. We truly enjoyed ourselves and our time there.

The house and everything in it is so well thought out. The owner has thought of everything that you might possibly need. Everything was comfortable and clean. The appliances and extras in the house were excellent.

We have a 21 month old little girl and the home is set up perfect for families. Her favorite movie is Winnie the Pooh and she was overjoyed when she saw the huge Pooh characters.

There are books, a few toys, games and movies for children to watch. The bathroom in the children's room is even set up perfect for little ones. Our daughter was very comfortable there, which made the trip so much more enjoyable.

The kitchen has everything and more that you would ever need and the appliances are top notch. We were able to cook most of our meals at the home with no problem. There is even a waffle maker, which we enjoyed.

The house is about a 5 to 10 minute walk to the beach, right around the corner from The Red Bar and about 5 to 10 minute drive from the Shops at Grayton. We even ventured out to Seaside and Watercolor which are not far at all.

The pool is great, it has a nice wading type area for smaller ones. The front porch is also wonderful. I really enjoyed having my morning coffee on the swing.

The only thing I would've done differently was checked before I came so I wouldn't have had to pack half of what I did.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the kind review. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and that your daughter enjoyed her Winnie the Pooh room. We have so many memories of visiting Grayton Beach when my children were just as young as your daughter. I hope this is the first of many great Grayton memories for your family too. We look forward to having you visit again.

The Best Spring Break trip yet!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start to describe how wonderful it is to stay in this cottage that has everything you could want to make a vacation spectacular?

My husband and I planned to take our teenage daughters and two friends to stay at Lollygagtoo for Spring Break. Although we have relatives in nearby Destin, we liked the idea of our own space and swimming pool in the backyard for the girls to use. We arrived late on Saturday night and were so pleased to find such a beautiful property! The girls immediately donned their bathing suits and went directly in the heated pool (they used the pool every day and would go in at night for hours after dinner).

My husband and explored the cottage. The kitchen appliances here are superior to those I have a home, as well as the kitchen utensils, pots and pans, and washer and dryer! Everything was spotlessly clean. There is an in sink tap that provides instant boiling water for tea and other hot beverages. Coffee lovers will be pleased with the assortment of brewers present. There is a professional quality toaster and waffle maker! There was much thought taken to the comfort of the guests. For instance, although we brought beach towels, there were five luxurious beach towels provided for guests to use. There are also four thick hotel type robes for guests to use and specially made soaps!

Our girls loved this area because of the proximity to Seaside where many Spring Breakers from their school had rented vacation homes. The girls rented bikes for the week and could ride the short distance to Seaside to see friends. I felt safe with them riding back and forth. My husband and I enjoyed also enjoyed biking on the paved trail that runs along 30A! One day we biked 15 miles and included a trip into the State park directly adjacent to Grayton Beach. If you enjoy biking, Grayton Beach is a great place to vacation.

There are many places to eat there-we found ourselves enjoying the food trucks in adjacent Seaside, as well restaurants right in Grayton.

My husband, an avid tennis player, signed up for drills and found 3 other men to play doubles with at nearby Watercolor resort. If you like tennis-try there first as they were able to accommodate him when other resorts he tried in nearby Destin could not.

Overall, this vacation home rates 5 stars (I would give it 10 but that is not an option).

Would recommend this clean and well maintained property to anyone, including my family and would love to go back!
