    Margaret B from Acworth, GA recommends this vacation rental

    We loved our stay at Gulf Winds Up. We brought our own paddle boards and loved the location of the condo. Steps away from the beach and Western lake. We we're able to paddle in the ocean and saw dolphins and then paddled on the lake to Water Color. The condo was nicer than the pictures showed. We loved the artsy decor. We brought our 3 adult kids and had plenty of room with 3 bed rooms and 3 full baths. The only draw back for us was that we were very close to the pool and it could be a bit noisy if you wanted to sit on the lovely deck and read and there were kids in the pool, but that only happened a couple of times.

    John D from Carrollton, TX recommends this vacation rental

    It was another wonderful vacation in Grayton. We`ve been coming here as a family for 25 years and some years we visit 4 times a year. I`ve rented at least 20 different properties in Grayton. The location of Gulf Winds-Up is hard to beat. It is beautifully decorated and the beds are as comfortable as mine at home, which is often not the case. The property was clean, all the TVs worked, WiFi worked, the kitchen was well stocked...and having 3 bathrooms for 3 bedrooms was great! I highly recommend this property!

    This was our second visit to GulfWinds Up! Our only disappointment was that we could only stay a week. The location is unbeatable...close to the beach, restaurants and shops. To be able to sit on the porch and look out at the beach and watch the surf is just priceless! The beach is just a short stroll away and the inlet is perfect for paddle boarding, kayaking or just hanging out. The unit is nicely furnished and always clean. Cole and Jenny are wonderful to work with! We hope to return again soon!

    Michael G from Tullahoma, TN recommends this vacation rental

    We loved Gulf Winds..the location, quietness, etc. and plan to return but....
    There a problem with the electrical system..serious problem. Lights flicker; when the dishwasher, clothes washer and dryer start every light dims and the TV sound goes off. Several electrical outlets have 3-4 devices plugged into them.

    As an engineer with two degrees, I assume the house has 200 amp service. However it appears in bad need of upgrading. There definitely is not enough circuits. This condition really should be reviewed by a licenses electrical contractor and corrected.

    Also, please check all lamps. the bulb sockets in at lease three are totally loose. Same for the floor lamp next to the porch door. Some have burned out bulbs.

    With these corrections your renters will have a very comfortable vacation without worrying.

    a guest from Mount Juliet, Tennessee recommends this vacation rental

    Gulf Winds Up has lots of positives. You can see the ocean from the spacious balcony and the shower. It is located directly across from the heated pool and is an easy and enjoyable walk to the beach. You can bike ride on the dedicated path or walk the beach to Seaside (less than 3 miles). The owners have an artistic flair for decorating, it enhanced our stay to discover all the interesting and artsy items the placed in their home. A suggestion would be to replace some of the beds but that could be a personal opinion of comfort. Really there were only 2 negatives. The first was about 90% of cookware and dishes were dirty so we had to wash everything before we used it. The second was the rental company wasn't as pleasant as one would expect. An example: we emailed to ask if we could check in a day early. Instead of saying no in a kind way they said (parapharasing) no and don't ask for an early check in or late check out.

    This was our first time at Grayton Beach having stayed elsewhere on 30-A. We loved the quaintness of Grayton and had the most relaxing week. We will definitely be back and stay at the same place. Cottage Street had charm and it was most convenient having the pool right across from our front door. Gulf Winds Up gets a thumbs up from our entire family!

    Christi E from Saint Petersburg, FL recommends this vacation rental

    We have not been to grayton beach for several years and we've missed it so much! We usually stay in a single family home and was a bit hesitant to stay in an upstairs unit. We were totally wrong. The location of the house is absolutely perfect. We had great views! The unit was very upgraded and had everything we needed. It was quiet. It was a great trip. Grayton beach speaks for itself. It's a slice of heaven in this crazy world!
    The only 2 issues we had were the Internet is not great. It's hard to maintain a signal. Secondly, the back bedroom was a bit warm compared to the rest of the house.
    Overall, great place! We will be back!

    Leigh C from Enterprise, Al recommends this vacation rental

    We had a fantastic week. It started out hot but then we enjoyed late afternoon rain showers and had fun watching the lightning shows from our porch. The water was clear and the wind blew steady making the waves huge and perfect for body aurfing-which we did with a vengeance. We rented bikes at the corner grocery store and beach chairs from the side of the road in Grayton. Restaurants? Tried as many as we could and loved every one except cafe tango. (Had to have been an off night for them.)
    Our house was beautifully decorated and the layout perfect for our family. We could see the beach from our porch. Kids Loved the pool. The walk to the beach is a small hike but that's the beauty of Grayton and it's protected parks. Boat ramp was nearby and though we didn't have a boat it is where we launched our SUP. Thank you for providing a clean and well equipped home away from home! (If the owner ever wants to sell give them my contact.)

    Great place for a wonderful stay at Grayton beach. Beaches are beautiful and after a day at the beach we enjoyed the view of the gulf from the porch with a nice adult beverage. Easy walk to some good restaurants or easy drive to go to Seaside and beyond. The condo was great!! There were 3 couples and we had everything we needed there. We loved the decor and the special touches the owners have done. Will definitely come back again!!

    Over the years, we have visited Seagrove, Seaside and other beaches close to Grayton through the years and this trip was one of our most favorites! The condo was beautifully decorated; the view from the balcony was incredible; the beach was snow white and the water was crystal clear. We could not have ordered a better vacation! Cottage Street is a special place and we hope to return soon!

    a guest from Macon, MO recommends this vacation rental

    This home was absolutely perfect. The beach was much closer than I expected. From the upstairs porch you could see the sand and water in the distance. Super short walk and you were on the walkway down to the beach. The 3 BR 3 BA was bigger than we needed, as there were four of us and it could sleep 8 in beds. But our family likes to spread out so it was perfect, not to mention the 11 yr. old boy and almost 14 yr. old sister didnt have to share BR or BA!!!Directly across the street was the pool, which was often empty as only a few houses share it. The outside grill came in handy.
    I can't say enough about the weather and beach. We've traveled to many beaches the last 10 years and this very well might have been my favorite of all! perfect. The landlord/owner gal downstairs was here during our stay. She was perfect help and super friendly. My husband and I really enjoyed the bike trails heading to neighboring towns. All together perfect.

    a guest from Nashville, TN does not recommend this vacation rental.

    Lovely condo, but there were a few glitches: the internet was out for the majority of our visit. This was not anyone's fault per se, but annoying none the less. Also, the northernmost bedroom never really cooled down. The biggest deterrent for us, though, was the long walk to the beach. From the boardwalk, it is quite a hike to actually set up for a day at the beach. Be sure to bring something that has BIG wheels that will roll through the sand of the very wide beach to haul your beach gear. Also, there had been a lot of rain prior to our arrival, which caused Western Lake to break open into the gulf, turning the water a gross brown/red the entire week. I learned to NEVER pick a rental that is so close to an inland lake bc mother nature may thwart your plans to enjoy the water. I get that water conditions are always going to be unpredictable, but NOT being by an inland lake removes the possibility of the situation we dealt with all week.
    Finally, if you have kids, this is probably a great location. But, if you are an adults only group, you may want to find another location to vacation. Grayton Beach is full of really large houses that cater to families with kids, hence . . . there are lots of kids everywhere. This is fine if you want to be around kids on your vacation, but not so much if you want to get away from kids on vacay.
    All that said, for the right family/group, this condo would be ok. But for our group, we will choose elsewhere next time.
    One really positive thing about this condo was the downstairs neighbors. The owners of that condo were vacationing the week we were there, and they were beyond nice, helpful and generous.

    We just got back from our stay at this condo and are already looking to book again! You can't beat the location-pool is directly across the street and the boardwalk to the beach is at the end of the road. The condo has everything you need for a comfortable, relaxed stay. The location in downtown Grayton was perfect-you can bike to all the activities of Watercolor/Seaside but then escape back to the wonderfully low-key Grayton. Thanks for a great visit!

    Location was great and place was great with three exceptions:
    1. Arrived at 5:15, past check in time, and it was a good thing because cleaning crew was still there.
    2. There was no soap available and if that was to be expected no one told me.
    3. The air conditioning in the back bedroom never worked and it was very hot.

    Kelly G from Carrollton, GA recommends this vacation rental

    My week at Gulf Winds Up was one of the best beach vacations I have ever had, and I've enjoyed many trips to the beach over the years. This upstairs unit is tastefully decorated and is stocked with everything you need to feel at home. Its location is an easy walk to the beach and an even easier walk to the Red Bar and Shortys. We also walked home from Pandora's at night. The porch overlooks the neighborhood pool. This might be too noisy during the busy summer but was an added bonus for us during our stay. We rode bikes to Seaside to shop and eat and were very happy to ride back to our peaceful home. Blue Mountain is a nice ride in the other direction on 30A. I hesitated before writing this review because I selfishly did not want others to know about this awesome rental. My friends and I are already planning to return at the end of the summer.
