Nice place

  • 4 of 5

First of all, my family really enjoyed our stay, as we celebrated both my wife's and my toddler's birthday celebration with family. The house is very nice, clean, spacious, and had almost everything we needed. It is a short (maybe 15 minute?) walk, convenient to the beach which was fantastic.

A word of caution: Do not choose this place with expectation that you can drive the golf cart to the beach. I do not think the owner in any way suggested that this was ok, but, based on the fact that the golf cart was advertised and photographed and some of the reviewers implied they drove it to the beach, I assumed you could do so (my mistake). I was looking forward to this added convenience given we were traveling with a toddler and a family member with arthritis. However, we were stopped by a police officer on our way to the beach and were informed of at least 7 different moving violations we were committing. (Fortunately, she was very understanding, fair, and forgiving). I realize in retrospect that reading the reviews posted by other guests could have saved me from this embarrassing misadventure, but I did choose to stay here in part because I thought that driving the golf cart to the beach would be a nice convenience for my family, and I don't want others to make the same mistake.

All that said, this was a very nice place and I would stay here again.

Great community, beautiful inside and out

  • 2 of 5

I celebrated my birthday with a group of my girlfriends. We loved the gated community and the home. The home was very clean and decorated well. Renter beware. The sewer backed up into the two downstairs bathrooms. The smell was horrible and the tub began to fill up with yellow sewer. The utility company had to come and turn the water off during our stay. 10 females were left with using two instead of 4 bathrooms. The owners response when contacted was asking if it was raining and it was, which meant he was aware of a plumbing problem. The property manager said that she was glad that it happened during the first rental of the year instead of later, which was great for me, right. The owner was very apologetic and very nice. He agreed to refund me one amount but then submitted less. I then offered a compromised amount and he agreed to pay the additional amount that night and two days later I had to reach back out to him and ask for the remainder. I initially reviewed the property as 5 stars because I do not wish to tarnish anyone's reputation nor their business, however the owner scored me 3 out of 5 stars when I was the one who was inconvenienced and more than polite in my communication to him. So renter beware, if it's raining the pipes could back up and spill into the bathtubs and overflow from the toilets onto the floor. The toilets were bubbling as we took showers. Hopefully as the property manager stated, who by the way had to use hazardous materials cleaner to clean the bathrooms, good thing it happened to me and maybe it's fixed by the time you visit. If you would like pictures I would be more than willing to send them, it was very gross. On a positive note, the owner is very quick to respond, he was easy to get in contact with when an issue arose and he was apologetic.

Definitely recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great week at this beautiful house and incredible beach. We love this area and have stayed along 30A for years. This was our first time at this house and in the Preserves at Grayton.

The owner, Joe is super friendly, helpful, understanding (when we misunderstood the golf cart regulations!), and quick to respond when we needed light bulbs changed, had questions, etc.

It was really pretty and well decorated. I actually feel like the pictures don't do it justice. It was bigger than I expected. It was a great layout for us- with our smaller kids in the bunkroon right across from us and our older kids and my in-laws upstairs. SO nice that every room has its own bathroom!

The two pools are great; the better of the two is basically 2 doors down from the house so we were there a lot!

It's quite a haul to the beach. The pin that the VRBO website showed us wasn't correct, it's further away than it showed. It's at the end of Morgan's trail, not on Barton's Way. But the golf cart makes it no big deal at all. And again, you're closer to the pool.

Unlike a lot of the other private 30A beach accesses, the Preserves access has no stairs! It made rolling our gear down there so much easier. And most of the boardwalk is shaded by trees.

I was thinking our dog would be allowed on the beach (we've seen dogs on Grayton beach before) but if you have a dog, do your homework first. They're only allowed between the hours of 4pm-8am and a beach registration is required, which is a long lottery application process, I was told. Wished I had researched that more.

Overall it was a great stay and we definitely recommend this rental!!

Nice large house with a few minor problems.

  • 3 of 5

We stayed there last year and it was beautiful, this year we were a little disappointed. When we arrived the floors were dirty and the outdoor trash cans were overflowing. Most of the pillows had no pillow cases (and we were unable to locate any). We had to go to the store for trash bags, toilet paper and dish soap on the first day. However, the house is spacious, comfortable and in a great location.

As always, Joe's house was clean and roomy, and Joe is always responsive and helpful when necessary. We've stayed there numerous times now, and we absolutely love it.
