Overview

Grayton Beach House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, Sleeps 14

Hawk’s Nest is the perfect home for the large group desiring gulf-front accommodations. Located behind an expanse of low dunes, adjacent to the Grayton Beach public beach access, Hawk’s Nest is 3,000 square feet of coastal comfort for up to 14 guests with fabulous views of the turquoise gulf from every level.

Recently renovated, this upscale 4-story beach house is wrapped in deep balconies on the gulf side and includes 1,000 square feet of covered area at ground level - all affording unparalleled views of the gulf just beyond. Two outdoor showers on the lanai’s north side keep the sand outside. Grayton Beach landmark The Red Bar is located just one block north.

There are three bedrooms on the second floor and two bedrooms – including the master - on the fourth floor. The home’s gathering area encompasses the entire third floor, and features large picture windows framing the sugar-white sand and gulf waters beyond. Two sets of glass doors provide access to the deep wrap-around balcony. The renovated kitchen is equipped with warm wood cabinets and granite countertops.

Beloved by residents and visitors alike, Grayton Beach is known for its laid-back charm. A perennial Grayton favorite is The Red Bar, renown for its casually delicious menu and funky atmosphere. This and several other quaint shopping and dining options are within easy walking distance of both Hawk’s Nest and Hawk’s Landing. Grayton Beach is one of the Beaches of South Walton, encompassing 26 miles of pristine coastline. It is the only destination in the country to have its entire coastline certified as “Blue Wave” by the Clean Beaches Council for it commitment to maintaining unspoiled shoreline and natural habitat.

Boutique shopping and dining can be found at Watercolor and Seaside, six miles to the east. Four major shopping, dining and entertainment destinations are within 23 miles. Grand Boulevard’s restaurants and shops are only seven miles west. Just two miles further is Silver Sands Factory Stores with over 100 designer names. Continue west for five more miles to Destin Commons, a premier lifestyle center anchored by Bass Pro Shops and 14-theater Rave Motion Pictures. An easy 23-mile drive to the east is Panama City’s new Pier Park, a mega outdoor shopping mall consisting of over a million square feet of specialty shops, retailers, and restaurants - plus the 16-cinema Grand Theatre.

Golfers can choose from a number of award-winning courses nearby, including SanDestin, Origins, Santa Rosa Beach Golf and Beach Club, Windswept Dunes and Kelly Plantation. Included in your stay enjoy beach chairs and two adult bikes.

Reviewer Comments:

There are several major and very noisy, messy construction projects going on next door,and behind house. Same Owner as Hawk's Nest and he doesn't give a darn. Beach and water are Dirty, cars and trucks on beach., plus the place is cheaply built. There are much nicer (and less expensive) places down the beach where water is cleaner, no noise, no cars on beach and owners actually care about their guests. Don't get tricked by photos...avoid this place!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are always striving to provide our guests with the most luxurious possible experience. We are very sorry that your stay was not up to your expectations. We are very concerned with your statement saying that the owner "doesn't give a darn". This owner did offer and provide to you a concession, which you accepted, based on the construction noises. Grayton Beach is a great beach, and with the outflow of the lake to the gulf, can provide for a wide variety of activities.

Reviewer Comments:

Fantastic house!!! Lots of room and the views are simply spectacular. It's 4 floors up so you can see to Panama City on one side and Destin on the other. Lots of room to sleep and the house is in great shape and consistent with the online pictures. The rental company is fabulous and was attentive when needed. Very pleasant to deal with compared to some others. I really have only two complaints: first they were renovating the house next door and it was loud and sort of annoying when sitting on the deck. But it looked close to complete so I wouldn't imagine it will be an issue for more than a few more weeks. Second was the distance to the beach. While the house is technically on the beach it is still a bit of a hike to the water. Not a big deal unless you have tons of beach stuff. Grayton does allow cars on the beach with a permit and it can get crowded on the weekends so the experience is definitely different from Alys or Rosemary. Didn't bother us though. In addition to the ocean, the house is also next to the big lake in the park that sort of connects to the ocean. It was nice to have. It gave the kids another whole area to play, explore, skim board (it perfect for that!!) and swim. I didn't realize what a huge bonus that would be. The location of the house is right in Grayton and next to everything there: Red Bar etc. Instead of having to wait for a table, just grab a pager and go back to the house and have a drink. You are so close the pagers all work and you can make to 90 second walk back when your table is ready. Very cool. Overall, a top notch rental company and house. If you like Grayton and have a big group, this is the house for you.

Fair. Grayton has changed tremendously, and the amount of truck traffic to the beach was a surprise.

Reviewer Comments:

Very busy beach - quite a long trek to the beach. Very difficult to get in and out of driveway because of so many cars, bikes and people on the busy street. Had to call mgmt. as housekeeping did not leave basic supplies of paper towel, dishwashing liquid and detergent. One bathroom did not have any toilet paper. Except for master suite, bedrooms are quite small. Loud music one night because of wedding next door.

Our gettaway from the hustle and bustle of life.....This was our 4th time as a group staying..We love Hawk's Nest....<br/>the price increase was huge, but we still wanted to come. There were no upgrades in the kitchen (stove ancient) or bathrooms...toilet seat in downstairs suite pretty old...never told about construction directly next door..woke up to saws and drills at 7:00 am daily...asked to move 4 cars out of the way...construction residue left on barbecue, which was standard with the rental in the past, but you did come through after we begged...broken outdoor table..<br/>In light of all the above, mostly the construction being directly next door which effected our daytime on the beautiful porches,we love to eat outside and there was noise and workers everywhere..Can you imagine having no porch time on your beach vacation? Do you think it would be to much to ask for a discount for not being told before we signed the contract? We are reasonable people, some of us in the customer friendly positions...I believe it is a worthy question..Please let us know...<br/>Sincerely,<br/>Andra Thorpe, Ann Thompson, and Kathy Weidorn
