30a vacation

  • 2 of 5

The house is decorated beautiful and plenty of space. Some of the main issues we had are with the beds. All the beds are low quality and everyone has been waking up with back pains. The community is still under construction. The house next to us has a huge construction dumpster and they have been working on it all week. So much for sleeping in. The beach access is more of a 10 minute stroll with all your gear, but the boardwalk is very peaceful. We have enjoyed the beach as it is not crowded at all. Sunny and 75!

Owner's Response: We are disappointed to hear of your concern with the beds. We have never had a complaint before, and we go there often and have not had problems. We will definitely look into this and as always appreciate the feedback. To address the construction issue unfortunately we have no control over when our neighbor builds his home. We understand it is not optimal but understand that the home is very near completion. We appreciate everyone's patience as our development grows.

Nice trip

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed out trip tp the beach. One daughter flew in from NY City and another drove down. We were all happily surprised by the house and it's furnishings. Everything is first rate. The unit was clean and ready with a starter of necessities(soap, paper, etc). Really had some good food at the Red Bar. Although the beach is not staffed, we were able to rent chairs and an umbrella from the neighboring complex. Signs are very clear about where the property lines end and it was no problem.

Perfect Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Just finished a wonderful visit to this property. It was the ideal location for our bunch - close to the beach but not in site for the 3 year old with us! The house is beautiful and was perfect for our three-generation family trip.

The home was very clean.The management crew was outstanding. The walkway to the beach was exciting for the 3-year-old grandson. For those who question the distance to the beach, our 22-month-old grandson ran most of the way! The beach is breathtaking! Three of the six adults in our party are serious (marathon) runners. They loved the trail! Those of us who just like to walk enjoyed it equally as well.

I can't think of a more perfect place for our family. Thanks for sharing your home with us. It was marvelous! We hope to return soon!

'Pare' Dise'

  • 5 of 5

Bernard's Grayton Place is home away from home... The PRESERVE offers the quiet safety and security one doesn't often get in a vacation rental...

This was my second year visiting and staying at this beautifully appointed home...

Although thoroughly impressed on my first visit, I continued to love and appreciate So. Walton County living and the beautiful beaches in the area...

The boardwalk trek to the beach and the serenity of the walks on the sand and in the shore water is second to none... I would rather be in Grayton Beach than in Hawaii...

Bernard's Place offers all the comforts of home after a day of sightseeing, shopping, bicycling, fishing and/or stuffing ourselves on some of the freshest seafood in the country...

Love, Love, Love the Restaurants and Fresh Seafood readily available for some great home cooked meals... We had a few 'gourmet' cooks in our group...

We visited Shell Island near St. Andrew State Park and enjoyed the seaside communities along 30A...

I'll be back as there is still more to see and lots more relaxing in store...

A Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay ever in a beach house. We fell in love with this place, not only was it beautiful, but it was fully equipped with everything needed for our stay. The neighborhood was awesome and we really liked that it was a gated community. Also, the pool was real close to the house across the street. It was so quite at the house that we felt like we were the only people around, even though we saw many families out. Everyone was real friendly. The walk to the beach was a nice stroll. The boardwalk was about a five minute walk from the beach house to the beach. Grayton Beach was not crowded at all. The beach was very secluded, full of God's beautiful creations. We took amazing family pictures there.The sea oats were beautiful. I have never saw them so big and beautiful at other beaches. The beach house had a cart and beach supplies to take to the beach and it has a BBQ grill which we used during our stay. My husband loves to grill , so the grill was a big plus. I have nothing negative to say about our experience at this house. We definetly plan to stay again in the near future. I would strongly recommend staying at this vacation rental. We loved it and cannot wait to visit again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a nice review. We try really hard to make it efficient and comfortable. I am happy that you were able to enjoy the beach cart because apparently after you the cart disappeared! This saddens me as we try really hard to have available items to make the beach experience enjoyable. I just can't understand why someone would just decide it was theirs to take home. Unfortunately I will not be replacing the cart again. (Have invested approx. $400 in carts) Thank you again for such nice comments....PLEASE come again.

Wonderful Property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful trip to Bernard's Grayton Place. Short and easy walk to the beach down well maintained boardwalk (provided cart was handy). House is in good shape with everything you'll need. Floor plan was excellent. We had our 3 year old along with my mother in law and her parents. We were all very comfortable.

Great location to jump to Seaside or Rosemary, etc for lunch / dinner without having to worry with the fuss of traffic.

Pool is just across the street and well maintained by the community association. We had no trouble at all with where to go on the beach. It was beautiful and not crowded.

The owners were very prompt in responding to our inquiry and even in addressing a repair issue while we were at the property.

Many thanks!
