Description

Although this vacation home is minutes away from one of the most acclaimed beaches in the nation, a newly completed pool courtyard is steps away to bring some "backyard bliss" to eight carefree guests. You are instantly embraced by its charming appeal as soon as you arrive since it has a nostalgic golden American-styled design with a columned veranda out front. Rocking chairs on the porch invite you to relax and enjoy the balmy breeze while sipping on some lemonade or maybe a margarita. However, the real fun is out back around the 25'x12' heated private swimming pool and hot tub. Oh, and did we mention pool heat is complimentary during the cooler times of the year?!

A tall white privacy fence at Backyard Bliss creates a courtyard effect around a bright, tiled patio centered on the pool. Flower beds on three sides are studded with towering palm trees interspersed with small clusters of palmettos. Rows of lounge chairs face the sun on two sides, while a comfortable set of outdoor furniture is placed on the other side. Multiple sets of umbrellas are provided to move around for shade, while a gas grill is nearby for fun poolside barbeques. A rustic plank-topped table on the other side of the pool has plenty of seating, so your group may enjoy some festive poolside dining. When you're ready to hit the beach or explore 30A, the home includes four complimentary bicycles. In addition to bikes, a free seasonal shuttle is very nearby that will take you to the beach, Seaside, and other cool coastal 30A towns.

The interiors of Backyard Bliss feature a bright, spacious look with a vaulted ceiling, multiple windows, and comfortable furnishings. It has an elegant coastal style with a white couch and two regal pale gray cushioned accent chairs situated around a decorative throw rug. A large wall-mounted flatscreen TV above a cream-colored cabinet provides entertainment. Nearby a white dining set includes a rectangular beadboard glass-topped table, sleek high-backed matching chairs at each end, and pairs of country criss-cross backed chairs on each side. The open kitchen has a rich brown mottled granite-topped counter bar, white custom cabinetry, and brushed stainless steel appliances to fulfill all culinary needs.

The handsome Master Bedroom that includes a full ensuite bath has a stylish upscale look with a king-sized bed that features a tall light blue tufted headboard, a dark cabinet, and a formal chair, as well as a wall-mounted flatscreen TV. One of the Guest Bedrooms with a queen-sized bed also features a high cloth headboard, while the other is perfect for kids with a comfortable twin over full-sized bunk bed and twin trundle. These bedrooms share a full hall bath that doubles as a convenient powder room.

This great location is five minutes away from the captivating historic village center of Grayton Beach on the shimmering shore beside the gulf's jeweled waters. It also features a unique shopping and dining experience. The Zoo Gallery offers vibrant creations by artists from around the nation with a wide array of decorative art. The famous Red Bar directly across the street provides great dining, wonderful drinks, and live music regularly. Chiringo offers Spanish-styled tapas, cold beers, and tropical concoctions. Picturesque coastal villages along Scenic 30A are also minutes away with loads of restaurants, friendly beach bars, specialty shops, boutiques, outdoor musical concerts, and fun festivals.

We really enjoyed out stay at Backyard Bliss
A quiet and peaceful location with easy and convenient access to the beach, restaurants and stores. Having your own pool and hot tub is a big plus. The Beachcamp Brewpup, Hurricane Oyster Bar and Grace Pizza and Shakes were fun places to eat.

Third time staying in this property and we love it more each time!
Had lots of fun in the pool our six year old learned to swim under water on this very trip! We love to come down in mid August when all the southern schools are already back in session. Empty-ish beaches and a short line at Black Bear Bread Co. Get the Peach Iced Tea. Enjoyed out sunny and hot stay. We cant wait to come back!

This was our familys 6th summer spent in the Destin/30A area
Our children loved riding the tram to the beach. It was very hot this week so thats where we spent most of our time. We enjoyed evening sunsets, dinner at AJ's, a trip to Silver Sands Outlet Mall and Gulf World. It was the perfect end to summer before school starts.

What a "Grayt" family vacation!
The boys had a blast at the beach, easy breezy tram ride. Boat ride to crab island. Amazing weather, stunning sunsets and family time in the pool. We cant wait to tell everyone about all the memories made on 30A!

Backyard Bliss was a wonderful stay for our family vacation.
Enjoyed the bikes and the shuttle was just perfect for us. We really enjoyed the pool after a day at the beach and in the evenings. Grayton is a beautiful beach. Thanks for the memories!

We hasd an awesome stay at Backyard Bliss.
This was our first official family trip. Our kids loved the pool and hot tub. Grayton is a beautiful beach and the free shuttle was perfect. Backyard Bliss is the perfect location to get away from the crowds on 30A. Thank you for the wonderful stay and memories!

We enjoyed one week at Backyard Bliss
We have stayed at various places on 30A and hate the crowded cramped locations. This was perfect for peace and quiet. The pool was grand and so private. The house is lovely and convenint to so many things.

We love the location!
Backyard Bliss is not in the crowded part of the beach and we enjoy that. Please try Hurrican Oyster Bar. They have amazing food and the Sunday brunch is to die for! The backyard pool and hot tub are great amenities and the house is comfortable and well appointed. We will be back!

Best Winter Beach Escape!
We decided to visit a warmer climate during winter in Colorado and it was perfect! The heated pool and hot tub made even the cloudy days and evenings enjoyable. We didn’t have a car for the week but between the bikes included with the rental property and the free beach shuttle we had no problems getting around Grayton and the rest of 30A. We enjoyed many of the local restaurants within walking distance including breakfast, lunch, and dinner spots. The bike path along 30A made getting to Seaside and other beaches along 30A simple and easy! The house was beautiful, clean, and had all the amenities you could need. We would recommend this home to everyone and we can’t wait to come back for another visit!

Beautiful Beach Home
Highly recommend staying here on your next trip to Grayton! The home is very clean and convenient to the beach and Grayton shops and restaurants. The free tram is right across the street and runs every 10 minutes… We took it to the beach every day, which was amazing! There are also 4 bikes that you can use to ride around, but so much is in walking distance as well including a local coffee shop and bakery! Already looking forward to returning!!

Wonderful!
What a beautiful home! It is open and inviting and has everything we needed to enjoy our vacation, including bicycles! It was just a short walk to the trollies that took us down to Grayton Beach and an even shorter walk to dinner and breakfast at the nearby shops. The backyard and pool were heavenly and super private. We had the best time and hope to go back soon!

Such a delight!!!
This house/location exceeded my expectations! The house was well-kept, clean, warm, and cozy. The pool was amazing, especially the hot tub portion! The fenced in backyard helped make it feel like we were by ourselves even though there were other homes and businesses around. We loved the short walk to Black Bear cafe every morning for coffee and pastries! The tram to the beach was also a short walk and took us a right to the public access area! We were able to walk up to Red Bar from the beach (definitely recommend) to grab lunch or a drink! I could go on and on about this house and location! You’ll love it! Definitely going back!
