Overview

Santa Rosa Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Come relax and enjoy a quiet getaway in this charming three-bedroom/two-bath beach house located on a private street in Grayton Beach. It sleeps 8 with 1 king, 2 queens & queen sofa sleeper. Complete kitchen remodel in 2008-new floors, granite tops & stainless steel appliances etc. All new bedding and linens throughout the house as well.

Walker House has a 12 x 29' private pool with built-in seating bench and spa jets. Pool can be heated off season, for an additional charge per week. It is complete with Ducane natural gas grill, tropical landscaping, night lighting, market umbrella . The pool is located on the south side (beachside) of the home to capture the gulf breezes and surf sounds while cooking your favorite vacation meal. The west side (rear of the home) features a 10x16 open deck beyond the 10x40 covered/screened porch.

The house features Travertine stone and hardwood floor throughout the house. The common area interior walls are constructed of v-groove white washed pine, and combined with numerous original artworks, help add to its character. It has a spacious kitchen and open family area with a stereo system including CD player. Also it has 3TVs (new 37' flat panel in family room) and DVD players.

The master bedroom and bath are located upstairs with a private balcony overlooking the pool and also offering beautiful views of the gulf . We just changed to a king bed in the master. The master bath has been completely renovated and enlarged in 2012 and features a large stone and glass tile walk in shower, new cabinet with two sinks and glass tile backsplash and a granite countertop.

It is approximately 100 yards to the beach, and the dune walkover is conveniently located 65 yards from the front steps. Wireless internet available at no extra charge. Ample parking.

About The Owner

We are in our 50's and have one son. We love relaxing at the beach and sunsets with friends. We also love art...collecting and painting even though we have no real talent. Some of our best memories are from times spent at Grayton Beach.

The Owner purchased this house in 1986

Why The Owner chose South Walton

We both grew up in northwest Florida and began spending time at Grayton Beach in 1981. It was our dream to own property there and we bought a lot and built our first home in 1986. We have seen a lot of changes in the area over the years and remember the slower paced days we used to have just sipping coffee and chatting with neighbors in the mornings.

What makes this house unique

Our many years of renting our home has helped us put our guests' comforts in line with their expectations. We love the pool and pool area that we added a few years ago. The proximity to the beach, restaurants, bike paths, etc makes our home a great vacation choice.

Lovely Grayton Beach hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at the Walker House. The house is comfortable, nicely furnished and well stocked with anything you might possibly need during your stay. We loved the artwork, much of which was painted by Mary, the owner. We didn't use the pool but did sit by it daily reading in the sun. We walked on the beach at least once a day and walked into town multiple times. Seaside is a few miles away and we loved going over to get our dinner from the food trucks. Thanks Mary and Wayne for making us feel right at home. We can't wait to come back!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing week at Walker House! The house, location and pool were exactly what we expected! The house is fully stocked with every imaginable kitchen gadget and the furnishings are so very comfortable and cozy! You rent directly from the homeowners who are the most wonderful people! No rental agency! We will be back very soon! Thanks for sharing your beach home with us!

Relaxing Spring Break!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our spring break at the lovely Walker House. The house was clean, roomy, well equipped, and nicely decorated. The screened porches and large living area was appreciated! We started each day with a walk on the beach searching for sea shells, our afternoons beside the heated pool, and our evenings checking out the excellent restaurants on Grayton Beach and Seaside. A few days we had rain, and those days were filled with shopping from the outlet mall in Destin to the many quaint shops in Grayton Beach and neighboring towns. The area has a little bit of something for everyone! We are so glad we chose the Walker House as the atmosphere was laid back and quiet but so close to activities. You can easily walk, bike, or in our case golf cart (we rented) around the area. If you are looking for a place to re-charge and enjoy nature, this is the one for you. Good times!

Great Spring Break!

  • 5 of 5

Great week at the Walker House! Perfect location! Loved the slower pace of Grayton Beach! Great central location between Seaside & Destin. My daughter was able to easily bike into Seaside to be with friends and it was just a short drive to outlet shopping in Destin! Also enjoyed the shops & restaurants that were in walking distance around Grayton. Would definitely stay again!!

Great house! Perfect location in Grayton!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful stay at the Walker house and couldn't have been happier with the house or location. It is a very short walk to the beach, which you can see from the porch. We were at the beach by 7am-due to our little guy waking so early(and the time change) and the water was pristine and beach completely empty. The heated pool was a plus! Also with a little one running around, the screaned porch was helpful. The house has all of the amenities needed and is short walk to the Red Bar. We also walked to Seaside, which took about 30 minutes or so. It was hard to leave! We will definitely stay here again! Thanks so much!
