Excellent location

By: Trip Date: 2022-04-06
Renovations are great. Overall layout perfect for our family. Short walk to beach access was terrific. Pool area great. Deck could be kept up better. Would love to come back and stay here again!

Minor issues with the property

By: Trip Date: 2022-03-26
There were nails and screws found all over the property. One caused a flat tire. One child almost stepped on a rusty nail. We had to spend $30, plus half a day to get the new tire repaired. The gas tank on the grill was empty and spend $20 to use the grill. The blinds in the master were very dusty and one on the blinds is broken. A glass top on the dresser on the master was broken. There were no extra blankets or pillow cases for the spare pillows. The home did have good access to the beach and a private pool.

Fammily vacation

Everything as expected. Great location.

Excellent Vacation Place

By: Trip Date: 2021-07-31
Our family rented two places in Gulf Trace. Some of the family stayed in this one, but I did not. The review is based on my son's comments. He said the place is exceptionally nice and he had no negative comments. All adults and children enjoyed the stay. Something that is especially nice is the patio and pool area, partially covered beneath the house, where they spent a lot of their time. He said it is highly recommended.

Great location

By: Trip Date: 2021-06-12
First let me say standing on the deck you could see the ocean as if you were directly on the beach.totally awesome! Being that it is in a neighborhood, the beach was never crowded. You never had to look hard for a place at the beach.
The house needs some upgrades. We got splinters from the deck. Couple windows didn’t shut right. We had to put a board on one window to keep the hot air from coming in. The pool was dirty and the pool cleaner said they had come by but we were there the time he said he came by so it did not get cleaned until Friday, the day before we were to leave. We were told that there is a new owner so hopefully they will do some upgrades. Having said all that, we would consider staying there again Because of the location. The property manager was very helpful.

Great Friendcation Spot!

We had a wonderful time st this house. Its perfect location and private pool made this stay a lasting memory. Thank you!!

Great view and area. House a little rough

By: Trip Date: 2020-12-09
The view and the beach were amazing. The property manager was always available and very helpful. The beds were all clean and seemed fresh. Overall the house seemed like it had been cleaned, but not deep cleaned in a while. The pool was a nice addition but the heater wouldn’t work the whole time we were there. The house is definitely in need of updating and even some repairs. You will need to bring everything for your stay with the exception of basic kitchen utensils. There was no salt and pepper or coffee filters. We had seven pre-teens and it was a good place for that many kids, but just a little bit of work on the house would’ve made our stay spectacular.

Our Stay at 294B Gulf Shore Drive

By: Trip Date: 2020-07-11
Awesome! Santa Rosa Beach is beautiful and was easy to socially distance. The beach was an easy, short walk from the house.


By: Trip Date: 2020-06-27
Loved the quiet neighborhood and uncrowded beach! House is very close to beach access, which is great. Right now, the lot in front of the house is empty so the view of the ocean is gorgeous. The pool is also great and large enough for the whole family to enjoy. The house itself needs some updating, especially the bathrooms, but everything was clean and comfortable. Except for the dining room chairs, which desperately need to be replaced or at least have better foam in the seats - super uncomfortable. The railing on the side porch is also a little concerning, and ping pong table is completely unusable. Overall, it was a great experience and I would definitely stay here again!

Fantastic Time!

We had a fantastic time on our vacation. Highly recommend this place.

Great Place in a Great Location

By: Trip Date: 2019-11-01
We spent two weeks in this home and it lives up to its description. Clean, spacious, great beach view and a short walk to the beach access. The property management company was very responsive and easy to work with. We would rent this home again.

The Best vacation I have ever had

By: Trip Date: 2019-10-15
It was amazing. My fiancé and I went to grayton beach to get married and it
It’s a very sentimental place for the both of us .We stayed with several members of the bridal party at the house and it was without a doubt the best vacation that any of us have ever had we had such a great time difference Hillary was amazing it was 2 feet from the beach and had a nice pool due to the weather wish the pool was heated but not a big deal because we went to the beach most days anyways. we stayed with several members of the bridal party at the house and it was without a doubt the best vacation that any of us have ever had we had such a great time deficit he was amazing it was 2 feet from the beach and had a nice pool due to the weather wish the pool was heated but not a big deal because we went to the beach most days anyways Plenty of utilities supplies and dishware for us as well as plenty of beach materials as well . I definitely recommend this company/location for anybody looking for an amazing time the view of the beach is incredible .

Great location!

By: Trip Date: 2019-10-05
We LOVED the location with its view of the beautiful Gulf of Mexico and the quiet neighborhood. The house itself was obviously older and could use a few cosmetic updates as well as some general maintenance/upkeep. Despite this, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Excellent Family Vacation

By: Trip Date: 2019-09-13
Everything was fantastic about this family vacation. The Beach House was excellent...the house was very comfortable and easily accommodated 7 adults and 2 kids. All electronics worked well including the wifi and the satellite TV. Beach accessibility was great, and appreciated the use of the beach chairs. The view from the front porch was very nice since there is an empty lot between the house and the beach. The village of Grayton was within easy walking distance. All in all, a very nice and comfortable stay. Although this house isn't the newest on the block, I would recommend this house to anyone.
