We had a terrific time. Really liked the house and the short walk to the beach.
We enjoyed our stay very much. Beautiful house, very clean and well kept.
Great place,close to beach,can’t wait to book for next year We were there just in time for hurricane. Power and cable out for a bit , but Maintenance man made sure we got hooked back up in time for cowboys game We have been to Destin every year since 2007 and this house is our favorite,and great value too
Our family has been vacationing almost every year for over thirty five years in the Desin/Ft Walton/Panama City Beach area. We've stayed in a variety of accommodations and this was without a doubt among the very best properties we've experienced. I think the only thing that could have been better is if the property would have been beachfront which is really almost too much to ask for a property with a private heated in-ground pool. The property support team were very responsive to the couple of items we needed help with. This is always very important when vacationing - support for any problems or questions that arrive and this team was top-notch and extremely responsive to our little issues. The property was well appointed and we experienced no disappointments in regards to the high expectations we had based on the advertising of the property and our research of it before-hand. The property was well-appointed, very comfortable and easily accommodated both our large families gathering together and the individuals desire to have her/his own private time and space. With three generations in the house, this can be very important at times. Our family has traditions for the year-end holidays that include a large number of us vacationing together. AS coordinator of these outings I have received immediate and glowing positive feed-back from the family and am sure that we will return soon to our Grayt Escape.
Great property, very beautiful, well maintained. Very close to the beach. Very quiet. We love the music system controlled with the mini iPad and can control which areas we want the music playing. Love that it's super close to bad ass coffee, best coffee place in town! Close to several souvenir/beach stores and to the scooter & paddle boat rental place, less than 5 mins walk. The beach service with umbrella and chairs is definitely worth having as tents are not allowed. Great layout, we had multiple families and parents so it worked out perfectly with the kids staying away being noise staying away from the older people on the 3rd floor. Everyone enjoyed the pool, the jacuzzi & the outdoor shower. We bbq-ed almost every day so the built-in grill was put to great use! Also nice to have 2 sets of washing machine & dryer, we can wash all the towels simultaneously and spend less time instead of doing that multiple times. Definitely a grayt place to stay!!! Only 1 thing, the hollywood street access gate code does not work, not a big deal as this one is further than the other access gate (5 houses down instead of 3, very close)
beautiful home in the perfect spot, everything was so wonderful we are already going to book ourselves for next year, thanks!
This was a great vacation home to rent with plenty of space to spread out. The location to the beach was fantastic and convenient. The hot tub was very popular with our group and the pool was nice and warm. The kitchen has all the pots, pans and utensils you would ever need. The bathrooms were all very spacious and immaculate. The manager of the property was very responsive to our questions and followed up in a timely manner. The balcony was great to people watch and have a drink. The welcome gift bag was lame, rubber wrist bands. For a few bucks they could afford a nice welcome basket with local fruit or pastries...just a thought. There were a few things that owners could do to improve the stay like, providing kitchen towels, hand soap, more garbage bags (only two for the week isn’t enough) , dish soap (dishes were to be cleaned before leaving. Kind of tough without soap provided), dish scrubbier, more than one dishwasher pod and detergent if they are only going to provide a limited amount of towels. Also would have been helpful since we haven’t been to the area before to have a map with the location of beach access points. In addition, it would have been helpful to have some of the information in regards to chair and umbrella rentals right away when we booked. We used an off site rental company that was good, but just not as convenient. Need directions to turn on the gas grill in their welcome binder as well. We figured it out, but it should be a guessing game on how to use it. Lastly, the TV on the main level never worked, which was okay because we ended playing more family games This is all nit picky stuff, but it would have made our vacation a less stressful. After all, you are paying a premium to stay there and I don’t think it is unreasonable to have the above limited items available. Overall though, we would definitely go back to the Grayt Escape location and just plan accordingly for items not provided. I would highly recommend staying at Grayt Escape. You will regret it.
We had 14 people and stayed here 5 nights - there was plenty of space, rooms on all levels helped with the kids that wanted to sleep vs. adults that stayed up later, although not huge, the pool was great and the kids enjoyed it, and proximity to the beach was perfect to allow people to come and go.
Beautiful home in a great location!!
The property was beautiful! We all enjoyed the heated pool and hot tub and close proximity to the beach which was just across the street. We had a couple of questions and received prompt service. We had a family of 13 and the home gave us plenty of space to be together and places for quiet time. We would recommend this property. Iowa Travelers
