Home, Sweet Home!

  • 5 of 5

It is Wednesday after my return from Twisted Oaks in Grayton Beach, and I am suffering post-vacation blues longing for my home, sweet home at the beach. Twisted Oaks is a wonderful place to stay with two delightful screened porches, a nice yard, a well-equipped kitchen, and comfortable beds. I have stayed at the house on at least four occasions, and every time I have felt like I was at home. The owners maintain the property extremely well. Everything is spotless. In addition, the owners are great to work with. While not on the beach, it is only two blocks from the beach and walking distance to many restaurants and bars. There is a bike rack, grill, and fenced-in yard. If anyone is looking for a comfortable home in a historic area of Florida, this is it. I cannot wait to go "home" again.

Great Stay at Twisted Oaks!

  • 5 of 5

Five women travelers arrived to this beautiful house only two blocks from the beach, bars, restaurants and shops. We enjoyed the two lovely screened porches, a cozy living room and a spectacularly designed and outfitted kitchen. There were plenty of comfy bedrooms with quality linens. This was a perfect get away for the five of us. It's only a short drive to a large grocery store and other areas where restaurants and shopping were plentiful. The beach is beautiful with white, sugary sand. The drive from the airport is not very attractive with lots of strip malls and chain hotels. But, once you get to Grayton Beach you are welcomed to an old fashioned Florida beach town. I would highly recommend Grayton Beach and Twisted Oaks. We'll be back!

So Relaxing at Twisted Oaks

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved making Twisted Oaks our home for a week........the house itself was adorable, quaint, & comfortable....the 2 large screened porches were amazingly comfortable and a favorite among all of us! Even when we had an afternoon of rain, we could still enjoy playing games on the porch! Two families for a total of 4 adults and 2 kids enjoyed our bedroom accommodations with our own bathrooms as well with plenty of room! The kitchen and dining area were fun and also well stocked so all we had to do was supply the food! Living area was roomy and comfortable, too! Backyard was great for grilling out....had a great bike rack! The outdoor shower was the first stop after a day at the beach! Can't say enough great things about Twisted Oaks! :)

Grayton Beach is an awesome beach town that is beautiful and quiet along with the beautiful beach! We enjoyed the beach almost daily as well as charter fishing which leaves right from the beach!

The owners were absolutely great as well which is a definite plus to our stay! On our next trip to Florida, Twisted Oaks is where we will want to stay!

Can't Wait to Return!

  • 5 of 5

This is a terrific find. Three generations of our family were universally delighted with the accommodations. Lots of space and lots of beds. We all loved the funky, beachy atmosphere of the house. The beach was a very short walk and WOW, the beach was gorgeous. We had a great cook-out in the spacious yard and also enjoyed dining on the large screened-in porch. There is plenty of cookware and tableware for a good-sized crowd. Also, fun places to eat/drink (and shop if that's your thing) are within walking distance, bike-riding distance, or a short hop in the car. We all rented bikes at the General Store and really enjoyed biking to breakfast and lunch at nearby beach towns. The owners are lovely with work with; the rental couldn't have gone more smoothly. My California relatives were bedazzled by Grayton Beach and I was a hero for finding such a perfect house.

Highly Recommend This Charming Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We’ve stayed at Twisted Oaks four years in a row and love it more each time. It has the warm, friendly atmosphere of a home that is lovingly cared for and used frequently by its owners. Eclectic harmony and casual comfort rule here. And the beds are soooooo comfortable! The owners generously provide fluffy towels, cotton sheets and paper products to get you through the week. But our favorite amenities are the two large screened porches with comfortable seating and a table where we eat all of our meals al fresco, looking out at the yard shaded by (what else?) elegant twisted oaks.

The walk to the beach along village streets is short and pleasant. The house is just far enough away from the popular Red Bar (live music most nights) not to be subject to late-night noise. There are lots of restaurants a short drive or bike ride away (paved bike trail!). Grayton State Park is adjacent to the public beach, so you can get away from everyone else if you want to by walking just a few more steps. Between the public beach and the park beach, there’s a brackish shallow pond that’s a favorite spot for children to play. We could go on and on about what makes this house and this village such special places.
