    It was great! Loved the house and decks. My only criticism would be the cleaning company. There were dead bugs in the lower level bedrooms, and dusty night tables in one of the upper level bedrooms. However, that will not prevent me from coming back.

    We have rented this same house for at least 8 years and it fits our family perfectly! Grayton Beach is growing, so not quite as quiet and sleepy, but a great spot for a family vacation. The house is not new, so getting a little shabby in areas, but a great beach house!

    We celebrated my mom's 85th birthday here with 4 generations of family members. There was plenty of room. The kids' bunk room was great for them. 4 single bunks and 4 double bunks. The pool and porches were wonderful for gathering. Kitchen well stocked. Convenient to the beach and Red Bar. Rental agency was prompt and accommodating.

Each bedroom was great and had private bath. Kids room was so nice and fun. Kitchen was awesome and really worked well for large group cooling.

    The most amazing house for our family of 18! With 5 master suites each having its own private bath and the "kids suite" complete with bunks for 8 and their own TV and foosball table kept our crew happy! The pool is refreshing after a day at the beach. We rented bikes from the general store and loved touring Grayton! The kitchen is well stocked with two dishwashers and refrigerators it made meal time a breeze for our large group! We will definitely be back next year! Both Cole and Jenny are a delight to work with and always just an email or phone call away if needed!
    Fabulous house!! Don't miss a trip to Red Bar!

    This was a fantastic house for our group of 5 families for our annual beach vacation. We've come to Grayton for four years now, and this was by far the best place we've stayed. There was ample room, including a place for the kids to hang out, and it was only a block to the beach. When there was a slight problem with the refrigerator, Cole responded right away, and sent a repairman out on a Sunday night to take care of it. We couldn't imagine a better place to stay and plan to return!

    What an amazing house! Finally a beach house that really truly accommodates a party of 22! This house has everything you need for the perfect beach vacation. The owners of Shades of Summer did an amazing job of making the house cozy and comfortable yet spacious at the same time. Great simple design with out all the useless "fluff"! We absolutely loved everything about this home.... The proximity to the beach, amazing decks and incredible kitchen/dining area.... We will be back!!!

    This house is perfect for our family and have rented it for several years. There have been some upgrades over the last couple of years that make it even better. It does need some upgrading on the furniture - same sofa for last 8 years (don't know how long it was there before we rented) and very worn and uncomfortable. This house is handled better under Grayton Coast Rental than it was with Rivard. Concerns are handled promptly and efficiently. Love Grayton Beach and our "home away from home"!

    The home was even larger than expected. Very well maintained and nice furnishings. Topically clean, but could use a deeper clean. Pool extremely nice, but would have helped to have had leaves blown away when pool was cleaned, so they would be tracked back into the pool. Overall, very nice experience.

    Jimmy S from Chapel Hill, NC recommends this vacation rental

    It was a great location and the house met our expectations, but I am going to be a little picky after spending all that money.
    1. 4 roaches were killed
    2. Both microwaves did not work ( one the turntable did not work.)
    3. TV had been replaced (still too small), and it took two days and 3 phone calls to Cole to get it working. Still all the stations could not be accessed.
    Hot water supply was wonderful
    Beds were very comfortable
    Upholstery nees to be replaced - tired
    Sleeping accommodations for our 20 was good.

    Donna J from Braselton, GA recommends this vacation rental

    We have rented this house for several years and love the location and the room! We also loved the renovations that have been done. It was not as clean as I would have liked (sand in the bathrooms, lots of debris in the corners and under the beds). The lower porches (access to the house) was covered in sand so it is very difficult not to track it inside. We had to sweep the porches before we could unload the cars. I understand the fast turnaround that happens so it is hard to do everything. The response to any issues is immediate and great! I would like to see the upholstered furniture replaced. It has been there for a very long time and is very worn and uncomfortable. Another suggestion would be more towels. We had 13 in the house (it advertises for 22+) and we had to do towels twice every day. There was not enough for two per person. I don't want to be too critical, because we love this house and have already rented it for next year. Grayton Coast Rentals does a great job.

    We had an awesome family gathering at Shades of Summer. Despite having lots of rain, we still had a wonderful time. Convenient to good restaurants and happy hours that are also kid-friendly. Loved being just steps away from the beach and the lake. The pool and the bunk room were big hits with the kids. Each family having their own bedroom and bathroom was a real plus. I would definitely recommend this house for families with children. Also loved being in the less-crowded, Grayton Beach area.
    We plan to come back again.

    Marcia W from Racine, WI recommends this vacation rental

    We rented the house with my extended family. Ended up with 6 couples and their kids. There was plenty of room for sleep but storage of clothes in the kids room was a struggle. two closets sounds like enough but the one dresser was in the closet and there were no shelves in the other closet. A few of the girls just put the suitcases on their beds and slept around them. Not ideal but livable. The beach was very close, actually everything was close. LOVED it that it was 1/2 block from THE Red Bar. What a fabulous place to eat and we didn't have to fight for parking or wait in line. We took the buzzer back with us and it went off in the house. Yeah, it's that close. The house was well taken care of. I totally understand that sand is really hard to manage. The house was clean when we got there but the porch was full of sand. So I would have rated it spotless if the sand had been swept. We swept and then could go barefoot. It was a great experience, the Grayton Coast Staff was very responsive. We had a VCR go out and they replaced it that day. The electronics were difficult at best. Way too many remotes on the main TV's even their staff couldn't figure it out. We kind of gave up on trying to figure out the main room DVD. Plenty of table seats for everyone to eat. We enjoyed our time together and still saw and did a ton outside of the house. Oh and the private pool, so needed. We all loved the private pool. Really allowed everyone to relax. Sometimes the beach is too windy or has jelly fish or sometimes the kids just wanted a break from the sand. The kids really enjoyed having the pool.

    Spent a week in Grayton beach for a destination wedding. Our group had 18., 8 of which were children under age 8. The fenced in pool was a real security concern that was great! Each bedroom had its own walkout deck which was a pleasant retreat! The neighborhood had a homey feeling unlike the hotel type zone! Great space and great amenities!!!
