We had a great time. We all loved the pool especially. negatives were there were no replacement kitchen trash bags available. Sent email but no reply. Also TV guide was for cable. Set up was digital. Refrigerator shelf that was broken when we got there, should be removed and replaced. It would have been nice to get a text or call from someone asking if every thing was okay. When we arrived.

We had a great time with 4 grandkids - plenty of space and the back porch and pool are great (although could use some shade - the pool gets really warm in the afternoons). We had a TV issue, but the maintenance was quick and very helpful. It's just 3 blocks from the beach and walkable to restaurants - so we didn't have to use our cars much. We would definitely consider staying at Blue Crab again if we return to Grayton Beach.

The beds and pillows were VERY comfortable! It was upper 90's out and the air conditioning kept the entire house cold. Living room furniture was more comfortable than pictures appear. The pool water was very clean. Amazing view of the stars at night from pool. Neighborhood is peaceful. Trees provide shaded parking in front. Cars turned around in the driveway a lot but it didn't bother us. Kitchen is fully stocked and has modern appliances and washer/dryer off the kitchen. Pool could use some updated chairs. Some were brittle with age but there was plenty of seating throughout the house and porches. The three screened porches, the huge closet in the master bedroom, and the option to share the master bath with door to the hallway, were all great extras. We loved the art and decorations throughout the house. The location is perfect for bike rides to Grayton Beach State Park and Seaside with beautiful paved bike trails and bridges for viewing the waterways. We didn't see gators but saw one snake on the road in the park and one in the water under a bridge (far away from us). We had pleasant swimming in the fresh water area (brown water but clean)and the crystal clear emerald green water of the ocean. Didn't see dolphins or sharks this trip but sand dollars in the water by the hundreds. (please don't remove them) Was sad to see people taking them out of the water. We had the most fun at Marie's Bistro for karaoke and dining. A short five minute drive away and a great time at the live concert in Seaside. We enjoyed shopping in Seaside and eating at the Vintage Airstreams. The spirulina/ginger shot is worth the money, at Raw and Juicy. Our only complaints are it is very hard to get a loaded beach wagon across the thick sand (It took two pulling and pushing to get our gear to the beach everyday)and housekeeping cut a few corners that took away our wow factor upon arrival. Everything else was absolutely perfect!

The screened in porches were a great space to enjoy the outdoors during the rain. The furnishings we're comfortable. We had three families and never felt crowded. Grayton is a great area and The Red Bar was only a short walk away. The beach was just a bit further. We would all highly recommend The Blue Crab, the Grayton area and Grayton Coastal rentals.

Our extended family ranging in age from 4 to 50-something spent a week at Blue Crab. The house was great! The floor plan gave everyone (11 of us!) enough room, the pool was clean (and the pool toys appreciated). The house was in great shape, and a minor issue with a screen door handle was repaired probably within an hour of reporting it. The location near the beach and Red Bar was excellent (and the provided wagons a big plus!). We would be happy to return.

We enjoyed our stay at the blue crab over Thanksgiving week. It was very clean and nicely furnished. The kitchen was well-equipped and it is in easy walking distance of the beach. The washing machine was a little difficult to start and I believe that the dryer may need a new heating element as it took a very long time to dry a load of clothes or towels.

We stayed here in July as we joined a larger family reunion in town. Our party at the Blue Crab consisted of 7 adults, a toddler and a baby.<br/>The property is very conveniently located-a short walk to the beach or the public launch/dock for western lake. We brought kayaks from home and easily wheeled them down to the ramp for delightful paddles on western lake. The beach was very close, and the pool was a delight and a big hit with the 2 1/2 year old.<br/>The property was generally clean and maintained ok. On our 2 previous visits to Grayton, we had rented directly from owners who are in the area. Those properties were a step above in care and equipment. There were some items we had to address on arrival with the management company, which was very responsive. The wifi was out, some bedding was stained, a closet door was off the track and a toilet seat was loose. These items were resolved quickly, but should have been noticed prior to our arrival. In addition, we had to wait 45 minutes past the 4pm checkin for the cleaning crew to finish. (If WE arrive early or leave late there are substantial penalty fees). In other properties we have rented, they had some basic amenties: some condiments and spices (salt, pepper, hot sauce, etc.); laundry detergent; etc.<br/>An unexpected and appreciated bonus from the rental agency was a $280 credit for equipment from a beach supplies rental company. We used it for 4 bikes and a boogie board. They were waiting when we arrived and very nice to use throughout the week. It is a very convenient area to bike...and much easier than drivijng and parking.

My immediate family, including my three adult sons, their significant others, my daughter, and my granddaughter stayed for the week. We loved the privacy, artwork, porch, and pool. We were appreciative of safety features related to the pool. We had such a great time! The only reason we didn't book again for next year is that we are growing again, and are still trying to find someplace with a room for everyone, but we may be back! With that in mind, just two suggestions. The kitchen was lacking a few things like measuring spoons and decent knives. Also, the can opener flat out barely worked. My only other negative would be that I hated the plastic mattress pads on all the beds, even the master. The bottom sheet sliding off in the middle of the night! Other than those two details, the home is lovely, and so well put together. We have already recommended it to other family.

Great Stay at Blue Crab! This house is so family friendly and is in a great location! We loved the pool and the quick bike ride to the beach. Proximity to the Red Bar is wonderful! We would absolutely rent again! Only two complaints were not very many provisions we supplied. i.e. no trash bags at all, no dishtowels, etc.

A dozen of my favorite relatives (including our beloved dog Walter) gathered at Blue Crab cottage to celebrate my 70th birthday. Grayton Beach has been our family's vacation spot for 30+ years. We loved the house, the pool, and the location - a short stroll from the beach, but far enough away from the Red Bar to be quiet at night. We are all enthusiastic cooks, and the few items the kitchen lacked were quickly and cheerfully provided.

The Blue Crab was a good fit for our party, we Had a total of 10 adults and all had their own bed with a bed or two to spare. We grilled out every night and the grill was better than most properties that we have stayed at in the area. Location was very good, tucked away on a dead end street, 1 1/2 blocks from beach. Pool is very nice with lots of room for our group. Living room a little tight however adjacent dining room plenty large to accomodate all. Check AC- upstairs would get very cold while downstairs seemed to be on the warm side. Only problem experienced was with construction traffic at end of Garfield for house demolition. Overall a very good experience and will definitly consider property again for future visits.

We look forward to staying at the Blue Crab every year. We enjoy the big pool, the newly refurbished kitchen, plus the floor plan of the house allows everyone to spread out both in the bedrooms and the living areas. We also enjoy the relaxing walk down the street, to arrive at the beach access point. I highly recommend Live Well 30A concierge service to rent or transport your own beach cabanas, chairs and umbrellas.

We were so pleased with our first stay at Blue Crab. This was our fifth year at Grayton Beach and we have stayed in several properties. We loved the location and the pool for our four kids. It met all of the needs for our extended family of 10 beyond our hopes.

Great family vacation

Grayton beach is a perfect vacation place families! The house was great! We just needed a bigger refrigerator! We had 5 adults and 5 children and we could have slept at least 4 more comfortably! W had a great time!
