We are from Tulsa, Oklahoma and enjoy an active lifestyle and being outdoors. We are foodies and wine connoisseurs and enjoy a variety of dining options. After searching up and down the Gulf Coast for a vacation home large enough for our family, we found the ideal location in Gulf Trace.

Kara purchased this house in 2012

Gulf Trace, our neighborhood, is a unique property in a nature sanctuary nestled between state park boundaries, with the Gulf Shore making up the Southern boarder. This house is a wonderful combination of relaxation on the beach with an extensive bike/walking path at the entrance of the neighborhood. The Florida Panhandle Beaches were the only location in the United States listed on Frommer's Top Destinations in 2010.

Gulf Trace Home Owner's Association has been awarded three grants in 2012:

1. Sea Turtle Conservancy as part of the national Fish and Wildliefe Foundation's Recovered Oil Fund for Wildlife.

2. National Fish and Wildlife

3. Sea Turtle Conservancy as part of the Natioinal Fish and Wildlife Foundation's Recovered Oil Fund for Wildlife

Our property is situated on a large gulffront lot. We have three levels of deck that allow unobstructed views of the Gulf. With multiple windows on the east, west, and south sides, even a drizzly day does not take away from the beautiful views. Whether you want to walk 30 feet to dip your feet in the Gulf, or stay in the comfort of the house, you're sure to enjoy your stay in our home.

BETTER THAN CHOCOLATE!

  • 5 of 5
There are times in life where you are in desperate need of a sanctuary - when chocolate and wine just aren't cutting it anymore. Well, Seas the Day provided our family the perfect getaway that we needed after a tumultuous year. The views are stunning from just about every room. The water really is turquoise... and green and blue, and sometimes even reddish brown, and it's all beautiful. The sand really is sugary white, and squeaky soft. If you stay long enough, you will even see dolphins! And the home is set up to enjoy times together and times apart. There are so many separate spaces (balconies, bedrooms, bathrooms), that everyone can have their "me" time, and then regroup to play games, watch movies, sing karaoke, and eat together. I loved the way the kitchen was set up with two sinks so that someone can be prepping food and someone else can be washing up without feeling like you are on top of each other. And the kitchen is extremely well-equipped with just about everything you will need for meal preparation. I loved the decor of the home - very serene colour scheme, and high quality throughout. I have rented homes that don't have basics like soap or salt & pepper, and this home was very generous with the basic supplies like that. The owner made everything a breeze, very pleasant to work with and super helpful with all my questions.

BEST GIRL'S TRIP YET

Best Girl's Trip Yet
  • 5 of 5
Loved the home! So comfortable, clean and open. Kitchen was beautiful and well equipped with 2 sinks, easy to work in. Love the bistro height deck furniture for unobstructed sunset/sunrise views of the beach. Kara was a pleasure to work with and made the business end easy. Her elegant but casually appointed home made being with the girls all the better.The chilly nights were warmed by laughter and a great fire in the newly installed fireplace. It is the first time in 12 years of gathering that all 7 girls agreed we should return to next year! (phew- do you know how hard it is to make us all happy?!) Renting bikes is a must because the area has fabulous trails.

ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5
My family of 14 just returned from a birthday celebration over Labor Day. We could not have been happier with our choice! Nine adults and five children had plenty of room. The kitchen was a dream come true for anyone that enjoys cooking! Every bathroom is renovated with high-end fixtures and tiling. Very luxurious. The master bathroom, particularly the shower, is spectacular. The decks are perfect for enjoying pre-dinner cocktails while watching the sun set. Absolutely beautiful. The location is perfectly distanced from the crowded Seaside scene, giving you the private beach feel, with only a short car ride to all the restaurants, etc. And of course, the white sand beach only a few steps from the water....absolute perfection!

The owner was very easy to work with, allowing us early check-in and a late check-out without any fuss. Huge bonus!

We're strongly considering making Labor Day an annual event, and there will be no need to look for a different home to rent.

WONDERFUL HOME WITH FABULOUS VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
This was our 3rd year at Grayton Beach and we loved the private location of this home and the short walk to the water. The new owners are doing a wonderful job remodeling the home and it's becoming one of the nicest homes in Grayton Trace. The manager and staff were so accomodating and we will definitely be staying in this home again and again.

LOVED THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the beach for a week in April and loved it. Although there were new owners, our stay was not affected by the transition. A new gigantic TV was installed during our stay, but did not disrupt our time at the beach. The house is located right on the beach with room for all of our family. It is walking distance to Grayton Beach which has shops and restaurants. We especially liked Red Bar (food and and the entertainment were very good). The beach is beautiful and nothing better than to take coffee out in the morning or wine in the evening and enjoy either the sunrise or sunset. We will certainly return. The owners were very considerate and responsive to any/all or our questions. We understand the new owners will be making additional improvements and look forward to seeing them on our return. The bedrooms and bathrooms were immaculate. We have recommended this property to family and friends.

AMAZING LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at this property for a week in May and wish it could have been for another month. Everything was so gorgeous and well appointed. The beach was literally right out the back door and the views were incredible. We spent our mornings sipping coffee on the back porch watching for the dolphins to make their appearance. The bedrooms were all very clean and comfortable and it was so nice to have lots of room to spread out. The new owners seem to be making some very nice improvements. I noticed a very large new deck with outdoor shower, a brand new washer, dryer and dishwasher, and a mammoth sized flat screen tv with every channel you could imagine over the mantle. My kids were very pleased with this :) when we got tired of the beach we drove just a few minutes down the road to Seaside, the cutest little beachtown you've ever seen. They had some great restaurants and really good gellato. All in all this place seemed like heaven on earth. We'd go back in a heartbeat.
