Description

This classic cottage may take you back to golden memories of your youth and fun family vacations by the beach. This two bedroom South Walton cottage is cute, cozy, comfortable and affordable - plus it's in a wonderful location in the historic village center of Grayton Beach. This laid-back town has several restaurants with friendly bars, a new surf shop, and a unique gallery of vibrant decorative art. Most importantly, you can easily stroll over to the sugary shoreline. It adjoins Grayton Beach State Park, which was named one of the most beautiful beaches in America by Forbes Magazine. Besides the white sand shore, Grayton Beach also has a little village dock that overlooks Western Lake. Rare coastal dune lakes like this one are precious as they are found in very few other places around the world. They have a magical watery composition created when the dunes open their fresh water connection to the gulf. This estuary is a natural treasure, supporting a huge abundance of wildlife. You may go from splashing around in the surf to trying your luck fishing or paddle boarding.

A magnolia tree and a big palm tree adorn the front of a screened porch that spans across the front of Sweaty Palms while soaring live oak trees provide shade on the sides. The porch has Adirondack chairs and a picnic table that invites you to enjoy a tasty meal or your favorite drinks while relaxing. An open sun deck wraps around the home with access from the kitchen and Master Bedroom. A charming pergola provides partial shade while an umbrella table, chairs, and a grill inspire you to have a cookout. This deck overlooks a large grassy lawn where the kids can play. It will be perfect for a round of badminton, volleyball or croquet if you bring a set with you. The charming living room faces a counter bar with three raise seats and the open kitchen with plenty of cabinetry to hold all your tasty treats. A cream colored couch and two richly woven wicker chairs are cushioned to provide a nice seating ensemble. Oil paintings of seascapes and colorful art throughout provide a cheerful beach flair.

The Master Bedroom has a lovely queen-sized bed beneath a painting of the white sugary beach. This room has a bright wall of windows and a glass door that leads to the sun deck. The Guest Bedroom has pictorial scenes of happy families at the beach and two nice twin beds centered upon a sunny window. Both bedrooms share a full hall bath.  

This fantastic Grayton Beach location is close to Chiringo, featuring Spanish tapas and cold drinks and the famous Red Bar for great dining, your favorite adult beverages, and live music. The colorful Zoo Gallery is across the street. A wide array of restaurants, beach bars, specialty shops, concerts and seasonal festivals are just minutes away in the picturesque coastal villages of South Walton.

All One Level: Living Room with Screened Porch Access, Kitchen, Dining, Queen Bedroom, Bedroom with Two Twins, Hall Bath with Tub/Shower Combo.

Back in Time
Staying at Sweaty Palms is like going back in time. The one-level cottage with the large screened-in porch is set back from the road and feels like haven amidst the tall condos surrounding it. The palm trees and other foliage make it feel private and cozy. The decor was very pleasant. Bed was comfy. Couch and chairs could be improved. Fun to read guest book comments dating back to 1984. Very close to Red Bar (our favorite) and beach. Nice to be able to do laundry during our stay. Would love to stay there again.

Lovely home and great location
Sweaty Palms was a perfect little home for an anniversary getaway! It was in a great location just steps from Red Bar and the beach. It had an awesome enclosed front porch which we enjoyed each night after a day on the beach. We loved our stay in Grayton Beach and we look forward to coming back soon!

Cute Little Beach House
This place was absolutely darling and perfect for just the two of us. We were within walking distance to the Beach, Chiringos, and Red Bar. The Front Screened In Porch was perfect for Morning Coffee & Pastries from Black Bear Bakery also within walking Distance or you can use the Shuttle. The House kept nice and cool and on a hot summer day we were thankful our car had a shady place to park. Definitely booking this place again. We loved it!

The house was efficient. Kitchen was well stocked with all varieties of kitchen paraphernalia to create a simple or extravagant meal. Could use an entry light over the keypad. The management of this property is awesome making checking in and out a breeze.

Perfect Getaway!
Sweaty Palms is part of what makes Grayton so special. The 1970’s fishing village is our favorite part of Grayton. It’s like a step back in time with modern convinces mixed in. The location couldn’t be better! Steps away from Chiringo’s, Red Bar, zoo Gallery and the world’s most perfect beach! We can’t wait to return!

We love our pets here at Ocean Reef, however - Sweaty Palms is not a pet-friendly property.  If you are unable to board your pup, you may want to consider one of these Pet Friendly Rentals.
