About the property

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 Hawk’s Nest. 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 the AMC 14-theater. 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.

Royal Destinations was the best. We have come to Grayton Beach many times before and I can't think of a better experience all the way around. Great house, ideal vacation spot, can't think of one negative.

The three gulf facing patios offer the perfect place to watch both sunrises and sunsets leading to truly unforgettable memories. Hawks Nest's gulf front location also provides great views of the popular Western Lake outflow, which is the perfect swimming area for the little ones or learning to paddle board!

Reviewer Comments:

This home suited our party of four couples perfectly. The home is nicely decorated and the kitchen well-appointed. The balconies have great seating and offer a broad view of the beautiful inlet and beach. We did have a few minor issues that were addressed cheerfully and quickly. Within easy walking distance of restaurants. The house is adjacent to public beach access, which does include permitted 4WD vehicles. We are not fans of vehicles on the beach, but we were not bothered by vehicle noise while in the house.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall, Hawk's Nest met our needs. Service personel was prompt to respond to a couple of minor issues that arose. Plenty of space for everyone to spread out with mulitple balconies. Location to the beach and other Grayton hotspots was great. For those with difficulty using stairs, this property will pose a challenge with the main living area on the third floor. This amenties listed a grill, but it was not adequate enough to feed a house full of people. I expected more since the house sleeps up to 14.

Owner's Response: Hello and thanks so much for your review. Hawks Nest is a wonderful family or multi-family home to help create lasting memories. Situated perfectly to enjoy the best of both the beach and the lake. You wont regret the decision to stay at Hawks Nest. I looked for the section that listed there was a grill and can not seem to locate it. We do not intend to list a grill with this house. We hope to see you again soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. Hawks Nest has one of the best views in Grayton Beach and is a returning guest favorite. There are plenty of decks to enjoy a sunrise breakfast or a sunset glass of wine, all while overlooking the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. The house is plenty large enough to easily accommodate large family vacations. We hope to see you back soon!
