Description

Welcome to Grayton Beach—a beautiful part of Old Florida beach history.  If you haven’t been here before, Grayton Beach is the kind of place where you vacationed as a kid.  It’s a place where you get to know the locals and come to feel like one.  Visit Grayton just once and you’ll want to come back over and over again.

The “McDonald House” is a true piece of funky Grayton Beach history.  It is named after its former owner, singer/songwriter Michael McDonald, whose family lovingly cared for this Magnolia Street home for years.  New to the Grayton Beach rental market, the “McDonald House” underwent a fresh renovation in 2012.  It is wonderfully decorated and has a cozy beach feel.  

The well-designed floor plan has covered parking on the street level, and living areas on the second and third floors.  A screened sleeping porch and an open rooftop deck mean your two most important vacation bases are covered—naps in the shade and sunset views of the Gulf! The house is laid out beautifully, with:

AREA ATTRACTIONS:
Take home a piece of Grayton Beach by picking up a painting or sculpture from the Grayton Artist Collective; or, stop at a boutique like Petunia’s to browse a number of gifts and treasures. Escape from it all with a hike through Grayton Beach State Park — from here, the sight of sand dunes will leave you in awe.
At the end of the day, stroll along this beach neighborhood’s sugar-white sand and watch the sunset. Grab a memorable meal at favorites like Coast or Hurricane Oyster Bar & Grill, and then listen to some live music at Red Bar or Pandora’s.
Grayton Beach sits halfway between the new Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport in Panama City and Northwest Florida Regional Airport in Fort Walton Beach.  With multiple American, Delta, United/Continental and Southwest flights daily, Grayton Beach is easy to get to from anywhere

Very very comfortable!! Not too far from beach. We loved the privacy of the home. We will definitely rent this home again.

The McDonald house was quaint, comfortable, and fun- just like Grayton Beach! The kids loved riding bikes around the neighborhood and had a great time in the pool. The adults enjoyed lounging on the daybed swing and porches. This house has the perfect Grayton Beach vibe.

Overall excellent stay, thank you. House was exactly as described and pleasant to stay in. The pool patio has been paved and is a good upgrade from the website pictures. Pool heating worked very well. Two annoyances during our stay that would have led us to book another home if we knew upfront: - Major: Mediacom internet went down for 8 days (!), until a technician was available to come change the modem... Highly frustrating, though 30A Vacay genuinely tried to help. - Minor: there was a new house construction right across the street, from dawn to dusk every day. Prevented us from truly enjoying the screened porch and balcony. Those are obviously out of control of the rental management, but they could happen again.

The McDonald house was perfect for us. It was updated, and very nice, but not so nice that it was uncomfortable. It felt like home. I loved the trees and the privacy. The backyard felt like an oasis, and the front porch with the bed swing was perfect. I was surprised how close it was to the beach. Literally 100 yards, at most. Of all the places I've ever stayed on the gulf, this was my favorite.

Ashley was consistently available via phone and/or text, and she handled all matters timely, and with desired outcomes. Having a property management company that is available via text was something I had not experienced before and I very much liked it - text with code for house, text regarding any issues, text upon departure...loved it.

We love McDonald house. It was the first property we ever stayed at in Grayton Beach, and it never disappoints. Great location, perfect layout. It would be nice to see the living room furniture upgraded, and maybe a few more lounge chairs by the pool, but those things certainly won't stop us from staying there again.
