The screened-in porch and back yard off the kitchen is a great place for outdoor cookouts and after the beach dinners (grill out on the park-style charcoal grill out back) or night-time games.  Relax by the tropically landscaped, private swimming pool while watching some rays, or after dark, with the pool softly lit, it's just magical by the palms and under the live oaks.  The pool is perfect after a full day at the beach -- cool off the sunburn before heading back to the beach for sunset; at Grayton, you don't miss sunset.  Really, don't miss it.

There's a great covered porch on the front for people watching; watch everyone headed to the beach and the Red Bar; extra points for counting Harley riders!  Wireless internet service, lots of great cable channels, and three TVs; in the living room and two of the bedrooms.  Parking -- can accommodate 3 cars, or a car and boat and trailer.  Umbrellas and chairs are provided, and assorted beach stuff too.  We can also recommend beach chair/umbrella and bike rental companies.  There are miles and miles of easy (asphalt) bike trails out of Grayton for you to enjoy.

The beach distance is about 200 yards from the front door, with public boardwalk access right there on the east and west sides of The Red Bar.  There's places to put in kayaks and canoes, which can be rented close by.  There are at least a couple of beach umbrella/chair rental places in Grayton that you walk right by; check them out your first day and don't worry about carrying anything but your towel and cooler to the beach!  YOLO boarding is abundant here.  Jake's is a 2-3 minute walk to the beach, or shopping at the shops of Grayton Beach, or Grayton Beach General Store and several restaurants. Mapquest 374 Defuniak Street, Santa Rosa Beach. 

Thanks for looking, and if this isn't the place for you, you know someone who will love Jakes, so please pass the word along, and, in the meantime, be young, be foolish, and be happy!
