Epic Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

First off- we were excited because the house met every aspect of the description, so we were prepared and pleased. Our arrival was easy and facilitated by the directions from the emails. Little things like the wi-fi and the washer/dryer were handy. Now to the fun part.

We had two and a half families and plenty of room and rooms. The kids were happy in their own nooks and adults were comfortable. Personally, having two king beds in the house was one of the draws. DBR has, according to one 9-year-old, "The biggest bathrooms in the world!" It was fun to cook in, but we were so close to lots of yummy other choices that we had a perfect mix. We sat out on the back deck each morning for coffee and breakfast. Again nice.

The walk to the beach is lovely. It's shaded and pretty.It wasn't a problem to do in bare feet at the end of the day. Then we were excited about the beach. It was not crowded, so we had a nice spot and room to enjoy. Depending on the water conditions, there were times when the water was a little brown from the two freshwater lakes leading into the gulf. On the other hand, the kids (13,12, 9) LOVED playing in the Red Fish Lake and spent more time digging in the sand ledge than in the gulf.

We need to give a righteous nod to the people at Big Daddy's Bike Rental. They were helpful and really good natured. We loved our bikes and riding to the state park and to Seaside.

We brought chairs, umbrellas (spent $10 for one of those twist in the sand stakes- worth it), lots of sun screen, table games, our PS3, hot sauce, and some candles. These plus our laid back location made for a wonderful vacation. Thumbs way up.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to be able to get away from it all, and this home and Grayton Beach were perfect! Even after arriving late at night the home was warmly inviting. It's open concept made it very easy to settle right in. The bedrooms are spacious and a fully equipped kitchen made it possible to enjoy a home cooked fresh Seafood dinner! We highly recommend becoming acquainted with "Shrimpers;" a fresh seafood market nearby. With quick, easy access to the beach, morning walks by the ocean were a must for us! Although we would have been quite content spending all of our time on the beautiful white sands, it was enjoyable exploring nearby Seaside and Rosemary. In addition to the refreshing waters of the ocean, we also enjoyed the pool right across from the house! We capped each evening off with a trip back to the beach to enjoy a beautiful sunset. We will be returning and hopefully for a longer stay next time!

Fabulous Family Week!

  • 5 of 5

All I can say is WOW...what a lovely home, so fresh and clean and new! Bright and comfortable beyond what we expected.

We had plenty of room for our the 6 of us..the space inside and out is terrific. The Preserve Neighborhood is lovely, quiet and relaxing. The boardwalk to the beach, which takes a few minute walk, is like a whole different world..so much nature to see.

My husband and I walked to Grayton each morning for our Starbucks:). Huuricane Oyster Bar was so fun too..yummy oysters and drinks at Happy Hour. We will be back!

Perfect Family Get-away

  • 5 of 5

The owners really get what people want in a vacation rental: Super comfortable beds, WiFi, roomy enough for 2 families to share, comfortable furniture and set up, roomy dining area, well-appointend kitchen, great laundry room, huge bathrooms, air conditioning sufficient enough to be a great respite on one of the hottest days of summer (almost igloo-ish for you big sweaty men), outdoor shower that can be used to hose off the kids, great decks, easy access to the pool and short beautiful walk across the dunes to the beach. Now: If you are familiar with 30A, this place close enough to all the things you want and need (grocery, liquor store, even a walmart), but also far enough away to give you that retreat feeling. I loved the walk across the dunes to the beach - just beautiful. Don't miss the Donut Hole in the mornings and the yummy ice cream shop (within walking distance) in the evenings. Dick's Beach Retreat is a do-over for this family.

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived it was beautiful Sunday afternoon and we quickly walked to the beach, 7 minutes, away to watch the sunset. The house is gorgeous and well thought out. There is a master on the ground floor with a bath, which we enjoyed. The upstairs held another master with 2 other bedrooms and a bath. This is great for 2 families sharing.

My favorite part was sitting on the back porch, after the thunderstorm with the cool breeze, drinking coffee. There is a great big front porch that we used to neighbor watch. The pool is a whole minute walk away. They have bike paths and 3 quaint towns, that you can use a bike or car to get to see. It is very relaxing and I just wished I had more time. Maybe next year will go for 2 weeks, Hmmm!

Take the kids and enjoy!

This home is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Wow! Wow!, Is that enough or do I need to tell you how absolutely beautiful this home really is.My family of six were fortunate enough to be the first family to experience this Grayton Beach Beauty.Situated in the quaint coastal village of The Preserve at Grayton Beach,you soon feel like you've lived there all your life,or at least would like to spend the rest of it there.Convenient to everything along 30A.Grayton Beach,The 30mile bike path,Dune lakes,State Park and an awesome restaurant my wife and I discovered called.......some secrets have to be guarded sorry!But there are many more excellent ones just a five minute or less drive away. Wal Mart and Publix are just five minutes up the road on Hwy 98.I could go on and on but suffice it to say you cant go wrong with this home,we had a great time and look forward to returning ASAP!!!
