Come relax and enjoy a quiet getaway in this charming three-bedroom/two-bath beach house located on a private street in Grayton Beach. It sleeps 8 with 1 king, 2 queens & queen sofa sleeper.

Walker House has a 12 x 29' private pool with built-in seating bench and spa jets. Pool can be heated off season, for an additional charge per week.

The pool is located on the south side (beachside) of the home to capture the gulf breezes and surf sounds while cooking your favorite vacation meal.

About The Owner

We are in our 50's and have one son. We love relaxing at the beach and sunsets with friends. We also love art...collecting and painting even though we have no real talent. Some of our best memories are from times spent at Grayton Beach.

The Owner purchased this house in 1986

Why The Owner chose South Walton

We both grew up in northwest Florida and began spending time at Grayton Beach in 1981. It was our dream to own property there and we bought a lot and built our first home in 1986. We have seen a lot of changes in the area over the years and remember the slower paced days we used to have just sipping coffee and chatting with neighbors in the mornings.

What makes this house unique

Our many years of renting our home has helped us put our guests' comforts in line with their expectations. We love the pool and pool area that we added a few years ago. The proximity to the beach, restaurants, bike paths, etc makes our home a great vacation choice.

Always our favorite!

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Grayton Beach with our children for years. This is the fifth time we've stayed at Walker House and it continues to be our favorite. The house and pool are well maintained and the the home is beautifully decorated. There are flat screen TVs in every bed room and the great room. The bedding is comfortable and the new master bathroom is like being at a spa! But the very best thing about Walker House is the location. It is a two minute walk to the dunes leading to the most beautiful beach on 30A! Thank you to the Walker family for sharing your lovely home.

Lovely Grayton Beach hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at the Walker House. The house is comfortable, nicely furnished and well stocked with anything you might possibly need during your stay. We loved the artwork, much of which was painted by Mary, the owner. We didn't use the pool but did sit by it daily reading in the sun. We walked on the beach at least once a day and walked into town multiple times. Seaside is a few miles away and we loved going over to get our dinner from the food trucks. Thanks Mary and Wayne for making us feel right at home. We can't wait to come back!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing week at Walker House! The house, location and pool were exactly what we expected! The house is fully stocked with every imaginable kitchen gadget and the furnishings are so very comfortable and cozy! You rent directly from the homeowners who are the most wonderful people! No rental agency! We will be back very soon! Thanks for sharing your beach home with us!

Relaxing Spring Break!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our spring break at the lovely Walker House. The house was clean, roomy, well equipped, and nicely decorated. The screened porches and large living area was appreciated! We started each day with a walk on the beach searching for sea shells, our afternoons beside the heated pool, and our evenings checking out the excellent restaurants on Grayton Beach and Seaside. A few days we had rain, and those days were filled with shopping from the outlet mall in Destin to the many quaint shops in Grayton Beach and neighboring towns. The area has a little bit of something for everyone! We are so glad we chose the Walker House as the atmosphere was laid back and quiet but so close to activities. You can easily walk, bike, or in our case golf cart (we rented) around the area. If you are looking for a place to re-charge and enjoy nature, this is the one for you. Good times!
