About Kara

Tulsa, Oklahoma is our home and we embrace an active lifestyle which includes spending time 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

Why Kara chose Grayton Beach

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 border. This house provides a wonderful combination of relaxation on the beach or enjoying a variety of activities with an extensive bike/walking/jogging 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

What makes this house unique

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 detract from the beautiful views. Whether you want to walk 30 feet to dip your feet in the Gulf, stay in the comfort of the house, or enjoy the numerous available activities, you are sure to enjoy your stay in our home.

Perfect family beach house!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about this home! My Dad took myself, my husband and our 2 young boys to Rosemary Beach for a family vacation. The house had way more room than we needed so we were all able to spread out! The upstairs grand master is amazing and the shower is life changing! My boys loved the Jacuzzi tub and showers. My husband and I stayed in the king bedroom adjoining the bunkroom. The boys loved the bunk room. They also loved the toys available at the house for inside play, as well as the large selection of beach toys. We truly didn't need anything; this house has everything you need and then some! Gorgeous views from the decks, especially the sunset view from the upper deck. We enjoyed breakfast in the screened in deck off the kitchen. Kara was very helpful with questions and recommendations on the area. If you're considering staying at Seas the Day, book now!

Wonderful Vacation Spot

Had a wonderful stay at Seas the Day. This was our second stay at this property and we would definitely come back. The house had plenty of room for four families. A beautiful home in a beautiful location. Being on the beach is hard to beat!

From four cities, three generations, 16 persons, wonderful beach experience

  • 5 of 5

Our four children, their three spouses, and seven grandchildren joined us from Denver, Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Miami for a fantastic week at Grayton Beach. The bedrooms were ideally suited for 16-18 people and perfect for admiring beautiful sunsets, morning and evening walks, sitting on balconies just listening to the surf roll in... The kitchen and master bath are over the top wonderful. The kitchen has a restaurant-type ice-maker (great for helping keep soft drinks and bottled water chilled in a cooler down at the beach), a warming oven (helpful when cooking for 16), expansive food preparation areas, and all the utensils, plates, glasses, and cookware you could ever need. Great charcoal grill on the front balcony. Big assortment of boogie boards, toys, chairs, balls, to take down to the beach for kids. Plenty of towels and linens. State of the art washer and dryer. A Publix Supermarket with all our food/beverage needs only a few minutes off the beach by car. A great owner who answered all our questions promptly by email before and during the visit. Close to Seaside and great restaurants, food trips, etc. for the night out. During the days we made some side trips to a spring just to the north, and the Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola (ladies visited the outlet mall). This was our fourth summer experience with the Santa Rosa Beach - Grayton Beach beachfront home rental market. All were good, but this was far and away the best. We are already planning our next trip! Thank you, Seas the Day!

Car: recommended

We are located along scenic Highway 30A, perfect for enjoying the coastal lifestyle. 30-A is known for great restaurants serving an array of wonderful handcrafted seafood, steaks and southern specialties and everything in between. Many showcase popular area bands for nightly entertainment.

Shopping opportunities abound with anything from outlet malls and brand name stores in Destin to miles along the coast with enchanting little specialty shops.

Enjoy the tangible beach energy with seasonal festivals such as the songwriters, gumbo, wine, Mardi Gras and numerous outdoor concerts.

A bike and jogging path runs almost the entire length of 30A. The Gulfarium is a marine treat for children and adults. Numerous available attractions include snorkeling, fishing, parasailing, horseback riding, wave runners, and pontoon boats, just to name a few. And, of course, you can always relax on the pristine, white sandy beach and enjoy the clear waters of the gulf.
