Perfect property near everything but crowds!
The house was beautiful and felt much larger inside than the sq footage listed. The owners were super nice and had provided everything we could have needed. The home is in a very quiet development of only s few houses on what feels like a secluded area with very little congestion. The beach is a short bike ride away. We will definitely be back.
Thank you Brian for being our guests really enjoyed meeting you and your family... Girls were so cute with there turtles!!!☺ looking toward to having you again.
Very nice and well appointed. Everything we needed.
We had a great time and the use of the golf cart made for easy trips to the beach
We recently stayed at Heron Cottage and could not have been happier! The house is perfect! It’s beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable, and stocked with everything you could need for a great vacation! The bicycles and golf cart were a huge plus for exploring the area and for trips to the beach. Doris and Pete met us at check-in and were so friendly and helpful during our stay. We highly recommend Heron Cottage for a wonderful stay at Grayton Beach!
Gem just minutes from 30A!
We've stayed in many homes on 30A and this by far was our favorite! Doris and Pete have thought of everything to make you feel at home in their vacation rental. The house was super clean and included very nice linens. They also include little touches like shower gel, shampoo, dish soap, toilet paper and paper towels. The kitchen is nicely stocked with good cookware and utensils, along with some cooking spices. We enjoyed the golf cart rides to the beach and Seaside. Thank you, Pete and Doris for sharing your home with our family! Hope to see you again next year!
Very nice house, great location, owners are great!
We stayed here for 5 nights and loved it. There are many great restaurants and shops within walking or biking distance of the house via the sidewalks that start at the neighborhood. We rented the golf cart from them which made it even more convenient to go to Seaside or one of the many restaurants around. The pool is very well kept and is right next to the house. The beach is about a mile away but there is a nice sidewalk that goes all the way there and with the bikes or the golf cart it did not seem far at all. We met Doris, the owner, when we checked in and she was very nice and helpful. My wife even left her purse there and she shipped it and a towel we left back to us the day we checked out. We would highly recommend this house and will hopefully be coming back sometime soon!
It was a real pleasure meeting both of you and of course your fur babies were sweeties best wishes to you in November with your 1st baby girl hope to meet her and see ya’ll again in the future. Doris
Heron Cottage August 2018
We had a great Stay at Heron Cottage. This was our 4th vacation on 30-A and our first at Grayton beach. The owners are wonderful! They met us at the house when we arrived at 9 pm and gave the tour. They were available if we needed anything for our whole stay. We had quite a bit of rain and there was a great selection of movies for my girls who are 9 and 7. I worked a couple of hours each day and had no issues with the wifi. The home is well stocked with 4 bikes, beach chairs, beach toys, floats, and beach bags in the shed. There were beach towels that we used and linens were provided. We did a lot of laundry and had no issues with the washer and dryer. The beds were comfortable (bring your own pillow though). My girls loved watching TV in their rooms. We paid a little extra for the golf cart and loved it. It takes about 4-5 minutes to drive to Grayton beach in the golf cart. It was also a short cart ride to the state park. We loved the geographic location because of its close proximity to Destin to the west and all the great 30-A communities to the east. My only negative comments are the following: I wished the refrigerator had an ice maker. The knob on the dishwasher was missing. That's it! We will come back!
Thank you so much for your review as we enjoyed meeting you and your family. Not sure if you were aware there were extra pillows in the top of each bedroom closet. Unfortunately there is no ice maker on the frig door, but the freezer makes plenty of ice. We appreciate you letting us know about the knob missing on the dishwasher and will replace it ASAP.
We hope to see you all next year.
