Beach Access:

The Preserve community features deeded beach access right across 30A. Approximately .4 miles from the community is a shaded boardwalk to the beach.

Blue Mountain Beach Access:  This public beach access .06 miles from the home with parking, restrooms and seasonal lifeguards.  

Pool Access:

The beautiful Preserve community has two pools, one on each end of the community, as well as tennis courts and a fitness center.

Tucked amidst Point Washington State Forest and just north of Big Redfish Lake, The Preserve at Grayton Beach offers seaclusion and tranquility in the soul of 30A. The Preserve is located just minutes from all the shopping and dining of the nearby Gulf Place, Seaside, and WaterColor. A short stroll leads you to a secluded boardwalk to the beach, a beautiful trek culminating in the shimmering white sands and emerald blue waters the Emerald Coast is famous for. The Community enjoys great amenities including two pools (one seasonally heated), two tennis courts, and a workout facility.

Granite counter tops, travertine tile, custom wood work, and beautiful lighting throughout the property make Grayt Expectations feel like a true retreat. The home sits in a gated community with plenty of parking. The house is three stories with five decks with outdoor furniture for lounging in the Gulf Coast breezes. The living space is very comfortable with satellite TV and big comfy furniture. The kitchen has everything you need: fridge, microwave, stove, pantry, dishwasher and full set cooking utensils - including crock pot, electric griddle, blender and coffee maker. A Publix grocery store is a five minute drive away.

There are five bedrooms. The huge master bedroom downstairs has a queen bed and a walk in glass shower with three nozzle heads. The second floor has three bedrooms. The master features a king size bed with a private deck and large walk in closet and large bathroom with Jacuzzi tub and walk in glass shower. The other two bedrooms have a queen size bed and a double queen bunkbed. Each has access to the shared deck. A full bathroom is located in the hallway.

The third story has view of the ocean and great deck. We call this 'The Crow's Nest'. with two twin beds and a mini kitchen. Its a great place for kids to play and sleep.

A hot tub is on the back deck. The backyard fronts a state forest so the privacy is great. There is also a walking/biking trail behind the house if you wish to take a stroll in nature.

Grayton Beach is known as the ‘Soul’ of 30A, where the first 30A vacationers came for their fill of beautiful beaches by horse and buggy. Bordered by Grayton Beach State Park and Point Washington State Forest, Grayton Beach enjoys some of the most pristine beaches and towering sand dunes of the 30A villages.
30A is a scenic stretch of highway down Florida’s beautiful gulf coast between Destin and Panama City Beach. The highway connects the coastal villages of South Walton through the undisturbed beauty of rare dune lakes, sugar white sand, and emerald blue waters indigenous to the area. Each village has its own unique characteristics that paint a fairy tale like scene against some of the country’s most beautiful beaches. Come live the 30A life and experience the beach the way it was meant to be, where Southern Charm meets Bohemian lifestyle and unforgettable vacation memories are created.
This home has a 4-seater golf cart as well as 5 bikes to cruise around 30A!

This vacation home needs some TLC! Shower handles in two showers broken and not usable. Charcoal grill grates and wire rack was broken; Upstairs balcony door handle broken and balcony table not usable due to water damage and deterioration Articles found in upstairs bedroom chest of drawers from previous visitors; Kitchen desperately needs some bowls (mixing/serving) and a serving platter or dish We were very impressed with the quick response from texts sent via the website; we were also taken care of quickly when the washing machine broke. Thank you for a great trip!!

We love staying on Morgan's Trail! Everything was wonderful. I do have a couple suggestions. The water heaters in the home are not large enough for the home. I loved the tub in the master bedroom but you had to fill it up as much as you could with all hot water. Then wait until the water was hot again to get enough to use the tub. Also we had eight people staying at the home and showering was an issue because of hot water. We did make sure the water heater had not tripped as we were instructed. All the staff was wonderful!! The home was exactly like we thought it would be. Loved the hot tub, bikes and golf cart and the pool was great!!

My whole family had a wonderful stay at Grayt Expectations! Response time whenever we contacted the BeachWalk Vacations team was satisfactory. Everyone we spoke with there was helpful and great to work with, especially Jessica! The bedding and quality of the furniture is above average; there were plenty of towels, linens, and extra bedding for our stay in January. The place was sparkling clean when we arrived and was exactly as advertised. The property is a great location, and the neighborhood is quiet. The bikes and golf cart were fun addition we utilized during our stay. The instructions given for the rental were descriptive and very helpful, too. We had a wide range of ages and the property worked really well for our group. Highly recommend using BeachWalk Vacations. Thanks for a great vacation!!

Property was great; roomy, clean and the perfect layout for us. Community was also great, tennis and pickle ball courts were steps form the unit and golf cart was a big plus. Be aware that it is a long hike to the beach but once there it is one of the nicest beach in the area. The management company was extremely responsive and very helpful. Low points: The hot tub that was part of the rental was not working and no offer of compensation. There were no beach towels in the unit and although there were instructions not to remove the towels, the management company brought extras and said to use those. Additionally the unit had no beach chairs or umbrellas. As a note in our long history of renting in the area beach towels and chairs are usually available to the renters. If we had known that these items were not provided we would have brought our own. That said, we had a great time and the weather was perfect. We’ll be back, just better prepared.

Thank you for letting us stay in your home. It was extremely beautiful! The people that I worked with was amazing. We were disappointed because the hot tub was dirty, and there didn’t seem to be enough hot water in the bathrooms. The home was extremely clean. Would definitely love to stay there again, and I have been recommending it to others.

Beautiful home, fully equipped! Service of Beachwalk was phenomenal and swift. Couldn’t have asked for better. A little walk to the beach, but the 2 pools were super and convenient. We’ll stay here again!

We could not have asked for a more picture perfect, beautiful community and beach area. The house was immaculate, spacious, and very well-appointed. Even in June, we enjoyed the private hot tub in the evenings. Location was fabulous for those looking for the beauty of 30A, but not the crowds. Every day on the beach was perfect and our area was never crowded!! Be prepared for a good distance walk down a boardwalk for beach access, but it is shaded and very pretty. The bikes and golf cart were a fantastic bonus. Our family truly enjoyed the accommodations and setting. We would highly recommend this home and location. We usually try out new places even when we love something, but are already planning our return to this home. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

We enjoyed our stay immensely! Two days before our arrival the owner contracted to use your management services. I was anxious about the transition since it was one day before our arrival that we were notified. But, the transition went smoothly without a hiccup. The owner had purchased a new golf cart that was licensed, but did not have HOA sticker. Your customer service representative told us he would work on getting golf cart ready to use by Monday, and he followed through handing us the keys Monday afternoon. My only suggestion would be to synchronize passwords so there aren't so many different ones to remember. Otherwise, the house was clean, plenty of linens and towels. I would highly recommend to others & look forward to returning.
