Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Gulf Trace - LaMer

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

LaMer By The Sea, Gulf Trace, Grayton Beach, Florida.

This exquisitely appointed, art filled 3 bedroom, 3 bath home sleeps 10 and has its own limestone edged pool, teak furniture and full width screened porch. Discover a real jewel of a getaway. LaMer is a wonderfully designed and newly renovated Craftsman Home where you can leave the 'real' world behind with spectacular views of Alligator Lake, Grayton Beach State Park and the breathtaking white sands of the Gulf of Mexico.

LaMer is your own private haven, nestled in a live oak grove, bordered by Grayton State Park. The views are stunning with the dunes and oak groves of Grayton Beach State Park, Alligator Lake and the Gulf at your back door. The only sounds are lapping waves and calls from the neighboring bird sanctuary.

Rediscover the peaceful solitude of old Florida walking among the grove of romantic twisted live oaks sheltering the private woodland path to the beach or watching the children play in the lake's always calm outlet to the sea. Adults and children can walk to the beach through the back yard never having to cross a single road.

This home offers the perfect location and the ideal design for vacation living. The inspired exterior appointments include cedar siding and shake, custom cherry double glass front doors, metal roofing, stylish exterior paint, circular drive with 'sit and chat' sun deck, large screened-in porch with lovely rattan wicker lounging attire, dining set and hammock, all facing a sea of twisted oaks.

The interior accommodations are spacious and welcoming with enough room for ten. The porch and master suite balcony offer picture-postcard lake and Gulf views. Built-in window seats, book cases, a fireplace, an office nook, 4 TV's/DVD's and more. The home is both baby and kid-friendly with Graco pack-n-play, Peg-Prego high chair, booster seat, and kiddy chairs.

LaMer is beautifully set in a family-friendly neighborhood with easy access to the 19-mile bike path located at the entrance of the community, making Grayton Beach, Blue Mountain, WaterColor or Seaside only minutes away. All of this combined make LaMer a place that's luxuriously comfortable. Private gated swimming pool with teak furniture for the ultimate in relaxation.

One of our best vacations!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation was one of the best for our family! The house was perfectly stocked with everything you would ever need and is situated in a quiet neighborhood with some of the best views on 30A. Plenty of room for the whole family and the owners made it easy and personal! Will definitely be staying here again!

Great property condition... Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Gulf Trace is the greatest secret on 30a. Wonderful beach walkable from the house. You are also a 10 minute bike ride, 5 minute car ride, from Watercolor and Seaside. Paddle boarding in the Gulf and on Alligator Lake is a awesome experience.

Very nice place but overpriced

  • 3 of 5

I've never paid more for a house than this one and it was a very nice house, but I wouldn't stay in it again. They provided all of the beach stuff you needed, that was great, but we had to go out and buy garbage bags, toilet paper, and paper towels. For that kind of $ you would think those things would be included. Fantastic view from the 3rd floor balcony of Alligator Lake and the beach, but 2nd floor balcony couldn't see the beach but good view of Alligator Lake. The child proof lock on the swimming pool fence broke the 2nd day we were there. Upon inspection, you could tell that it had been super-glued back together some time previous, it wasn't a big deal for us because my kids were old enough not to need a child proof lock, but again, that shouldn't have happened. Caught a roach in the house, again, no big deal to me but the kids screamed. The inside of the house was nice, lots of board games for the kids. Apparently I can't leave a review if I go into details about what I paid, but isn't the $ a big factor in deciding where you're going to stay? Apparently the dummies at Home Away don't want anyone to know what I paid. Yo pague entre cinco y seis mil y rente otra casa hace un ano para tres mil quinientos que era mejor valor.

Happy Place

  • 5 of 5

This was our second family visit to La Mer. The moment I walked in I could feel the welcome; it is a very happy place. The owners are so responsive and helpful; they really make you feel at home. Comfortable accommodations and whimsical decor. Best stocked kitchen ever! Yes, it is a little walk to the beach, but you have that amazing sunrise view over Alligator Lake and the comfy screened porch and pool, so it is well worth it.

This is home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property. This is our second vis it to this lovely, like-home vacation rental. We can't wait to return. Gulf Trace is a hidden gem, a quiet neighborhood with a fabulous beach.

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 4 & 3 year old. It was very clean & nice! The home had everything you need for a great stay & was decorated very cute. There is a little path in the "woods" that you have to walk to get down to the beach. There is also an inlet into the beach with very shallow water that our kids preferred to the ocean. They had the most fun crab hunting! The pool felt wonderful after a long day at the beach. Thank you to the owners for providing such a great vacation home. We hope to visit again soon!
