Great location.

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year staying at Castle of Dreams. We loved being able to walk to the beach and restaurants. Every morning having breakfast on the screened in porch and a glass of wine at night. Can easily ride bicycles to Seaside and up-and-down 30A. We have lots of great memories at Castle of Dreams and hope to have many more. Thanks for sharing your home.

Comfortable, clean, close

We had a great week at Castle of Dreams. Everything was as described... actually the house seemed a bit larger than we'd expected from the photos. We cooked in a few nights (also tried the only two restaurants in Grayton) and found the kitchen to be well equipped. I especially loved the screened porch. It's a short walk straight down Magnolia for beach access. Highly recommend.

Another beautiful trip!

Second year in a row that we have stayed at your lovely home. First, mattress was markedly improved from last year -- thank you for either replacing it or repairing it. Noticed up you made some subtle updates -- cute light fixture over dining table, nice and cute patio dining set on your screened-in porch. Nice adds. Had lunch to go from the red bar a couple of times that we enjoyed on that porch. Noticed the screen was replaced which repaired some minor tears that were there last year -- assuring a bug free porch. So peaceful to sit out there and nap, read, smell the coastal air and just get away from it all. We love staying at your home and took care of it as if it were our own. Thank you again for allowing our well-behaved, four-legged child. Made it a perfect vacation.

Fabulous grayton beach

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at castle of dreams for a week. Thank you for sharing your lovely home. Absolutely great home. Cozy, clean, pet-friendly and close to everything. We loved it here. Screened in porch is beautiful and nicely furnished. Close walk or drive to the beach. Rivard, the mgmt. co. does a great job on upkeep and maintenance. Nice linens and towels. The only reason we didn't rate it excellent is that the queen sized bed in the master is quite possibly the most uncomfortable bed we've ever gotten on a vrbo stay. We ended up both sleeping in a secondary bedroom on a small full sized bed so we didn't get the r&r good sleep we wanted while on vacation. The master bed mattress is horrible for two persons. You both roll to the center and the entire bed just sucks you in like a sinkhole. We'd love to stay here again but would have to think hard about it if the mattress is the same. A good night's rest and not waking up sore is part of a good vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to share your comments with me! The queen mattress is 4 years old, and in that time we have not had other complaints. A mattress is such a personal thing...some people like hard, some soft, and some prefer one somewhere in the middle. I'm sorry you did not feel the mattress was right for you. I am glad that your stay in Grayton Beach was fun. We think it's a pretty special place! Thank you again for your feedback as it helps me to improve guests experience. Property Owner
