Grayton Beach Homes
Grayton Beach is one of the oldest communities in this area, dating back to 1885 when Major Charles T. Gray homesteaded here. In 1890, General William Miller and William Wilson moved into the area, and the village was mapped out. Today, a mix of modern and historic architecture stands as testimony to over 100 years of community living. The history of Grayton Beach homes begins with the Wash-A-Way, the only standing building thought to have been built around 1890. You can still find the old wooden beach homes that housed many a growing family throughout the years. Even today, when houses in Grayton Beach sell for well over $1 million, the wild, undeveloped atmosphere still exists.
The motto for Grayton Beach is "nice dogs, strange people". A small Florida town atmosphere pervades the area, where friendly dogs still lazily wag up to you from where they were lying on the front porch and people set aside their modern-day suspicion to greet you with the hospitality of times gone by. The motto also points to the little forays into whimsy that Grayton Beach residents indulge in, such as the "dog wall", where locals have painted pictures of their faithful companions.
Grayton Beach Vacation Rentals
Since many of these homes are gulf-front, they provide good investment income since owners can rent them out as vacation rentals weekly, especially during the busy summer months but still relish retaining them for their use during other times of the year. Our highly esteemed Ocean Reef Resorts property management division represents many vacation rentals for owners. We can quickly provide detailed data for gross rental income on comparable properties to interested buyers upon request.

Grayton Beach homes for sale are upscale but not pretentious. You can live in a turn-of-the-century beach cottage or a luxurious beach house with all the amenities and its private pool. Grayton Beach is guarded against sprawl by the surrounding protected land that keeps this community close to its roots. Besides the immediate beach access, many of the homes here include gorgeous private pools and expansive balconies with stunning Gulf of Mexico views.
Grayton Beach Location
Grayton Beach homes are only a short walk away from the community's unique establishments. The village center offers visitors a look into the beach town's quirky spirit, with shops like the Zoo Gallery and Tribe Kelley Surf Post, as well as lively restaurants like Chiringo. Further down the road, you will find a range of other artsy galleries, including Modus Photo and the Saczynski Gallery. Look for the Red Bar, with its relaxed atmosphere and live jazz band that plays almost every night. Or, head over to the Hibiscus Coffee and Guesthouse, ensconced in a home built in 1903. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy swimming and other ocean sports on the white sand beaches, cycling along Highway 30-A, and the many hiking and nature-watching opportunities at Grayton Beach State Park. This ideal location, which also borders Western Lake, puts you minutes away from the neighboring coastal town such as the beautiful Blue Mountain Beach and picturesque towns like WaterColor and Seaside.
