New Grayton Beach Vacation Rentals

New 30A Beach Retreats in Grayton Beach

Posted on 7/25/2023

Welcome to Ocean Reef Resorts, where delight and tranquility converge to create lasting memories. Our journey began in 1982, and since then, we have been privileged to be the backdrop for countless cherished beach memories. Families have carved their narratives into the sands of our sun-kissed beaches, and our distinct accommodations have been a part of those beautiful tales. Our collections of vacation rentals, each privately owned and maintained by us with excellence, dot the scenic stretches of Destin, Miramar Beach, Scenic 30A, and Panama City Beach.

Anchoring our abundant 30A vacation rentals is the picturesque Grayton Beach, a gleaming gem where Ocean Reef stands tall as the premier provider. Enveloped within this lively paradise is one of our easily accessible offices, a testament to our commitment to being readily available for our treasured guests. As the sun-drenched month of June rolled by, we revealed five captivating additions to our expansive collection of Grayton Beach vacation rentals. Each of these beach retreats vibrates with an innate charm, eagerly awaiting to be your backdrop for unforgettable experiences in one of America's most stunning coastal treasures.

About Grayton Beach

Before we unveil the details of these new captivating homes, we invite you to take a walk with us through the vibrant tapestry that is Grayton Beach. Framed by the illustrious Grayton Beach State Park, a sparkling gemstone that has won the applause of Forbes Magazine for its untamed beauty, immaculate purity, and translucent waters. This slice of Eden shares its borders with not one but three Coastal Dune Lakes, a phenomenon so rare that it can only be experienced in a few corners of the world, including Madagascar, Australia, New Zealand, and Oregon.

These exquisite water bodies, the whimsical children of Mother Nature, are nourished by natural springs and tethered to the gulf by estuaries that carve their path through the sand dunes. The unique intermingling of fresh and saline waters nurtures an abundant ecosystem home to various fish, waterfowl, and wildlife. Aside from lounging on our glistening beaches, our guests can uncover the secrets of these serene lakes through kayaking, paddleboarding, or casting a fishing line into the promising depths.
