A beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I am somewhat reluctant to give this home the rave review it deserves, fearing I might not be able to book this home again with all of the interest. Well, here goes...

I am now 60 years of age and wear that fact as a badge of honor. I also believe I collected a lifetime of experiences. I believe it is more important to know what you do not want than what you do want. I have experienced a lifetime of renting homes, my family has owned rental homes as well. It is a delight to find a owners like David Marin and his wife, Maureen, who have built, furnished, and fitted out their rental home in a beautiful and quality manner. The personalized touches make you feel at home. Subtle hints of quality abound like: Williams Sonoma kitchen towels, higher end appliances, a well-supplied kitchen, beach chairs, a beach cart, nice electronics (we are not big television watchers, but they are all very nice), super comfortable beds, a fast internet, a lot of group space, large dining table for eight, and a great response from the owner if you have any needs.

I was a bit reluctant when I read that small dogs are allowed in this home but found no evidence of pet damage, fur or odor.

Interestingly enough, I am not a big beach lover. I grew up in Miami and the Caribbean and have had enough sand and sun for five lifetimes. I bring my family here because they love the beach; the beach here is not crowded and is safe, Grayton Beach is so very uncrowned it is like a private beach.

I enjoy time in the home and get my kicks watching my family have a wonderful time.

We will be back next year.

Excellent beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time! The house was BEAUTIFUL! It was very clean and beyond comfy! We had 10 of us from

The age of 1-65 and everyone loved it. Mr. Martin was amazing and replied quick and was very accommodating. The house had everything you needed except food! The beach is about a 5 minute walk and with the little one in tow it was a little tiring but nothing too bad. There are several steps leading on the path to the beach so be aware if you are taking anything that rolls that you will have to pick it up. Beach was amazing! Grocery store less than 10min from the house. Can't wait to go again, we all had an amazing time!

Wonderful Home Thanks for Sharing

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I took our two young girls to Grayton for the first time and rented this house. The house is amazing and is furnished very nicely. The house is extremely well stocked for everthing you might need. The owners are very communicative and helpful. It is a very short walk to the one of the two pools in the neighborhood and a short walk to the beach as well. The location is quite close to everything you might want to do off 30A and is even close to Destin. We would certainly rent this home again.

Great Spring Break!

  • 5 of 5

We found this home online and decided to rent because of the good reviews. The home was perfect for my wife and four teenage and young adults. The master bedroom and bath was spacious and the bed very comfortable. Also on the first floor is a bunk bedroom with two full size beds with its own bathroom. Upstairs are two bedrooms which share a bathroom. The room with one queen size bed has access to the porch. The other has two queens. The kitchen was well stocked with everything to prepare our meals. The gas grill was also helpful.

As mentioned in other reviews, you have access to the beach via a private boardwalk that is a short walk. The water was beautiful and the beach white. It is relatively private in this area.

We chose to rent bikes which allows you to enjoy the attractions along 30A. They will deliver and pickup. The two tennis courts were also nice and only a short walk away.

If you are looking for a place to eat take in Louie Louie which is a seafood restaurant on Highway 98. They do not have a wide selection of entrees but they are all good. Service is great and your food comes out quickly. They only take cash or check but there is an ATM machine inside.

We elected to take our two small dogs which worked out fine. They also enjoyed their stay.

Kudos to the owners for a nice home. We would like to go back.

Excellent Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This house is wonderfully appointed and beautifully decorated. The private subdivision is quiet and inviting. There is a 7-10 min. walk to the beach, but it's beautiful and under a canopy of trees. We brought my 79 year old mother - in law and she did fine with it being 78 degree days. Any more would have been too much. Overall this was a great vacation and Sea La View is exceptional.
