Description

This recently renovated 30A vacation home has five bedrooms with private ensuite baths and upscale accommodations for 16 fortunate guests. Happy Thoughts is aptly named because, just like in Peter Pan, your spirit will fly, and your heart will leap for joy as soon as you arrive at this incredible beach home! It has a fantastic location in the heart of the historic coastal village center of Grayton Beach, within walking distance of shops, restaurants, and, best of all, the shimmering shoreline!

Happy Thoughts has an open living, dining, and kitchen area on the first floor with tall ceilings, parchment-toned luxury vinyl hardwood flooring, and beach-inspired decorative art, providing a gracious ambiance. A creamy white wraparound couch with a rustic round cocktail table faces a flatscreen TV mounted above a white brick mantle next to a unique straw-woven bench. An elegant half bath off the living area serves as a convenient powder room. A white rectangular table beside the open kitchen includes eight sleek wood-silhouetted vintage modern chairs for charmed dining. Four chic, similar raised chairs sit beside a malt-toned granite entertainment bar for additional wining and dining. The state-of-the-art kitchen features new brushed stainless steel appliances, white custom cabinetry, granite countertops, and a matching backsplash.

The primary bedroom on this floor has a stately look with regal cream-colored furnishings, including a king-size bed and a majestic tufted cushion headboard. The luxurious ensuite bath has a dressing table, double vanity sinks, a deep soaking tub, and a glass-walled shower. The four private, beautifully appointed guest suites are all upstairs, including ensuite baths with adorned with veined marble, gleaming white porcelain tile, or pebble stone. All have sunny windows and three have king size beds. The fourth bedroom includes two queen-over-queen-sized bunks nautically decorated in navy blue colors. The guest bedrooms with king size beds are individually decorated with upscale comfortable furnishings. Flatscreen TVs are located in every bedroom for night time viewing pleasure.

Step into the newly completed backyard space, where every element has been meticulously designed to create an atmosphere of tranquility and luxury. A gazebo beckons with its coastal charm and comfortable seating, providing a shaded retreat for quiet contemplation or intimate conversations. Lush landscaping surrounds you, bursting with vibrant colors and fragrant blooms that invite you to explore winding pathways and discover hidden garden treasures. A crackling fire pit casts a warm glow, inviting you to gather around with loved ones and share stories about your fun filled day at the beach under the starlit sky. Central to the scene, an alfresco dining area awaits, where mouthwatering surf-and-turf delights beckon from the nearby grill. This newly transformed oasis is not just a backyard; it's a sanctuary where cherished memories are made and happiness blooms like the flowers in the garden.

Situated in beautiful Grayton Beach, this home is a short stroll away from the Gulf, restaurants with bars, and shopping adventures. The famous Red Bar serves great food with craft cocktails, beer, and wine while live bands play nightly. Chiringo's restaurant is nearby and serves tasty tapas, tropical drinks, and cold beers. The Zoo Gallery features colorful decorative creations from artisans worldwide, including vibrant handcrafted house décor, prints, paintings, handbags, beach attire, and jewelry. The Tribe Kelley Surf Post right next door offers a wide array of chic fashionable coastal clothing along with handpicked shore styled accoutrements. The village adjoins Grayton Beach State Park, which was recently reported in Forbes magazine as one of America's most beautiful beaches. Western Lake also borders it, which is a coastal dune lake treasure. A creek-like estuary crosses the sugary dune from the lovely lake connecting to the gulf, creating an exotic mix of salted and artisan spring-fed water. Rare, precious coastal dune lakes of this kind support abundant wildlife, a wide variety of fish, and waterfowl. Besides luxuriating in the jewel-toned gulf, you can also try your luck fishing and exploring the lake by paddleboard or kayak to experience the sensational seascape. Enjoy, and let your happy spirit fly!

Spent the week here after celebrating our son's college graduation!
So much fun and the home was perfect to accomodate the kids. Everything was thought of in this home. We didnt need a thing that wasnt already there. The home is so homey, we loved sitting on the porch drinking our coffee every morning. It was fun for us because we own a furniture store in Atlanta and we sell so many items they had in the house. Cant wait to come back next year! Love, The Eatons

Great stay in Grayton
We've stayed in a lot of houses with our kids and their friends in and around Grayton Beach, and this one may have been everyone's favorite. Very clean, great layout, and well stocked. We would definitely return!

Wonderful beach house
Our crew loved this house so much. Plenty of space. All of the amenities. We loved the screened in porch. Such a quick walk to the beach and an even quicker walk to Red Bar/Chiringo (both great restaurants). Would love to stay here again.

Perfect For Our Women's Retreat
This was a wonderful property for our retreat. We had 13 ladies and we were very comfortable. It was an easy walk to restaurants, shops and the beach. Hope to return in the future!

Family vacation home
Already booked our 3rd stay at Shangri-La. The house fits our family perfectly with plenty of space and stocked kitchen. We love cooking, game nights and hanging out on the screened porch. We get our steps in during a morning walk to Sea Grove and Bad Ass coffee. Easy walk to the beach, Zoo Gallery and of course Red Bar!
