Great location beach not crowded.
Easy rental process. Nice house great layout. Easy beach access and no giant beach crowds during a VERY busy week. Great beach chair set up Sofa and chairs could use replacement but other than that house was very nice.

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!

Is there a private pool and hot tub for this property? And how close is the beach from the house?
Claire M - Posted: 01/03/2022

Answer:

A private pool is included with this home - but no hot tub. The Grits Carlton is about a minute walk from the beach, with no major roads to cross as it's in a small gated community. 

Do you have bikes, a ping pong table, beach chairs?
Joe A - Posted: 01/07/2022

Answer:

The Grits Carlton comes with a private pool and complimentary seasonal beach service, which includes two beach chairs and one umbrella with your stay. You are welcome to rent bicycles from a local vendor during your stay. The Grits Carlton doesn't have a ping pong table or complimentary bicycles. But don't worry, as an incentive for booking with Ocean Reef Resorts, you can use your Reef Rewards to rent bicycles at a discounted rate through our affiliate program. There are a lot of other rewards available, too!

Can you fish off the balcony?
Colleen S - Posted: 07/30/2022

Answer:

Yes - you can fish off the back patio at this location. Enjoy!
