Guestbook comments from the manager

This is our 4th year coming to Grayton Beach and by far the best place to stay. We loved the atmosphere on Cottage Street. Gulfstrand Up had plenty of room for 3 families. Thanks for a great place to lay our heads after a day on the beach!

Gulf Strand Up

  • 3 of 5

We rented this property for a family vacation with our adult children and a grandbaby. Because of the stairway walls being dirty and handrail in disrepair, my first impression was not a good one. There is not a place in master bath to hang bath towels or put toiletries. The property floor plan suited us well with master bedroom being opposite other 2 bedrooms. We rented the downstairs unit as well for one of our sons and his wife and daughter. This was a convenient setup being in the same house, yet they had a separate area . The house is conveniently located near the pool and beautiful beach. The updated kitchen is very nice with fridge providing filtered water access and crushed ice. Our family enjoyed the house, overall.

Exceeded our expectations

We loved the location and porches- the view was amazing! The boardwalk is so close and convenient. The unit was well equipped and fit our family of 8 perfectly.

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for a family - plenty of room to sleep comfortably. We had a great view of the pool which is where we spent most of our time. The beach wasn't too far of a walk but our children preferred the pool the whole time. The appliances were nice and updated, the beds were comfortable and cleaning was excellent. We had a quick walk to the Red Bar which was great so we didn't have to find parking. The ice cream truck came around each day around 11:30 am which was a nice treat after swimming all morning. Overall, the stay was wonderful. Nice and relaxing and everyone was so friendly!

Lots of space and a nice remodel

  • 5 of 5

Lots of space for our group of 8. We stayed in Gulfstrand Down in 2014 and the remodel is a great improvement. The new appliances were nice; lots of room in the fridge. The new tile throughout made it easy to clean up all the sand we tracked in. As always, the beach was awesome. Very close walk to the beach and a pool right across the street. Grayton Beach is a great community and I'd recommend it to anyone!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We just wrapped up a great stay at the Gulfstrand Up unit and it couldn't have been better! The unit was updated, fresh, clean and well taken care of. There was a community pool and we were just a short walk away to the beach boardwalk, the kids loved it. The property was a good fit for the group (two families of 4) and we would definitely recommend staying here!
