Our Beach Cottage

Welcome to 103 By The Sea

Grayton beach rental cottage

About Our Home

103 By the Sea is a premier vacation rental in the prestigious gated community of the Preserve of Grayton Beach. A short (5-10 minute) walk to beautiful, white sand beach and a quick bike ride (3.6 flat miles to Bud and Alley’s) to the exciting neighborhoods of Seaside and Watercolor, but without the huge crowds and traffic. Our home is large (sleeps up to 10 people), with an open, spacious floor plan so that you can enjoy a relaxing family vacation at the beach. We have four bedrooms, a downstairs queen bedroom with adjacent full bath (perfect for the grandparents!), three upstairs (Master has a king, another room has a queen bed, and the large bunk room has two sets of twin bunks). The upstairs queen bedroom and bunk room share a Jack and Jill bathroom with shower/tub combo.

Enjoy family time in the large living room area with new sectional and conversation seating. Also, there’s a quiet reading nook upstairs or hang out on one of the large porches (Master Bedroom has its own!). Our backyard has a large patio with a grill, perfect for outdoor entertaining. We have 4 beach chairs and a beach caddie for your use in addition to beach chair set up including 2 chairs and 1 umbrella for stays between March 1- October 31 on designated areas of the beach. Our gated community has two swimming pools, tennis courts, small work out room and ping pong table. Plus, you can bike ride the miles of trail along 30A. Check out some of our favorite restaurants nearby like Pizza by the Sea, Chanticleer and Blue Mountain Creamery. The famous Red Bar is a short trip away. For a rainy day, you’ll find a selection of board games, DVDs, and Netflix is available.

Best of all, our beach is one of the widest and least crowded along 30A. Spend more time with your family making memories instead of trying to find a spot on the beach!

You and your family won’t run out of fun things to do and will make great memories at our home!
