Perfection in Florida
We had an amazing time at Above the Dunes. The house had everything you would need including beach toys and boogie boards- floaties for the pool. Just a 2 minute walk to the white sand beach. Quiet community- also a short walk to shopping and eating. Loved it!

Beautiful home
Above the Dunes is a beautifully decorated, spacious home and only 2 minutes from the beach! A lot of attention to detail and room to spread out fir more than 1 family. The pool was gorgeous and enough shade to enjoy it on a hot day after a day at the beach, which isn’t crowded at all and we were there in June! Only disappointment was there was no access to the garage to store our beach gear.. I would definitely recommend Above the Dunes to anyone looking for a more secluded area on 30 A but easy access to everywhere.

Great Family House!
Great family house that is very close to the beach. Lots of room to spread out and all luxury bathrooms. We loved Grayton Beach... quiet with no high rises. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby. Totally recommend this house.

FAQs

We welcome all of your questions! Most property-specific details can be answered in the AMENITIES tab, for example, "Is beach service included?", "Is there a community pool?" and "How far is the beach?". Additional answers may be found in our Rental Policies.

Still have unanswered questions? We invite you to ask below. Our vacation specialists look forward to providing you with a detailed response to help you find the best place by the beach!

If we can’t go due to a hurricane, can we use the deposit to book at a different time?
Melissa L - Posted: 01/13/2022

Answer:

Good question! Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable. For this reason, we offer Generali travel cancellation/interruption insurance that is strongly recommended. No refunds will be made in the event of a mandatory evacuation if the Generali insurance is not purchased.

Who can we contact to rent beach chairs and umbrellas?
Ruth S - Posted: 07/27/2022

Answer:

Beach chairs and umbrellas are not provided complimentary, but are most certainly available for rent. Once you have secured your reservation, we will provide you with the beach services contact information. You can reserve chairs and umbrellas over the phone, or directly on the sand. See you soon!

Is beach access on a private or public beach?
Julie K - Posted: 08/03/2022

Answer:

Above The Dunes is located in the residential neighborhood of Gulf Trace in Grayton Beach. There are two private beach access points inside the community. Don't forget the sunscreen!

Can the pool be heated?
Julie K - Posted: 08/03/2022

Answer:

Above The Dunes offers a large refreshing private pool, however, it does not have the option to be heated. If this is a requirement for your stay, here are some other homes with heated private pools. Give us a call if you see one you like!
