Experience the best of three worlds - the peace & enchantment of the Pt Washington State Forest with hiking & driving trails, the Choctawhatchee Bay with private marina access (best kept secret in Walton County), and the world famous sugar sand beaches of 30A (Grayton, Seaside, Watercolor, Rosemary).
I am offering my personal residence for rent for 3 months this winter while I'm out of state for work. It's a three bedroom, 2 bath, dog friendly, ground level, single story home with yoga studio/meditation room and massage chair, just 3 blocks to Bay, 2 blocks to private marina (access included), an easy 5 minute drive to Grayton Beach.

It offers a large private fenced backyard with meditation garden, fire pit, and wooden yoga stage/platform. There's plenty of space for parking for your boat and/or RV in front yard. Enjoy the healing power and solitude (no crowds this time of year) of the majestic beaches in winter, a day trip adventure through numerous sections of the state forest (hiking & driving trails), a boating or paddling adventure on the bay, and the great restaurants, bars, shops, and bike path along the 18+ mile stretch of our world famous beaches. All of this makes for a great winter escape and recharge!

This house offers a lot of flexibility. With 3 bedrooms, it can sleep 8+ if we add another air mattress(es). Otherwise, it is set up with one bedroom as a yoga studio/meditation room or artist's studio with giant mirror, yoga mats, singing bowls, etc. The third bedroom can be either a bedroom or an office. As an office it offers great sunlight during the day and a quiet peaceful environment for reading, writing or working. If you prefer it as a bedroom, we simply pop up the very comfortable EZ Up queen air mattress on legs so it's height of regular bed. The giant sectional sofa in living room features chaise lounge, queen sleeper and full sized sofa. And the massage chair is fantastic! The living room has a separate office space (desk and chair) too.

Privacy fencing in backyard, outdoor stage/yoga platform offers great spot to catch some sun. Other fun features are an indoor dart board, ladies cruiser bicycle (with removable stand that transforms it into an indoor stationary bike if you prefer to exercise/train inside), and paddleboards & canoes available too (at my paddle hut at the marina 2 blocks away). And electric fireplaces in living room and master bedroom add additional heat & ambiance on cozy winter nights.
Full kitchen with microwave, stove, oven, Belgian waffle maker, blender, ice maker, and small charcoal grill for outside.
Strong WiFi and good cell phone service by most carriers (unlike many places directly on the beach in this area).

Additional Boating Information:

Renters get access to the private marina two blocks from the house where I have my seasonal business offering stand up paddleboard lessons, tours, rentals and paddleboard yoga. The marina has a boat ramp that sits on a secluded 1/2 mile canal that opens into the Choctawhatchee Bay. It's the best-kept secret in Walton County! You can cruise the Bay, fish, ski, and visit a few local restaurants/bars. You can keep your boat trailer in my yard and keep your boat (temporarily) at my dock. Contact me if you have any specific questions about your boat at this location.

Additional Pet Information:

This is my primary residence I am renting while I'm away this winter for work. I have 2 dogs and this home is very dog friendly. It's all one level and has tile floors throughout and bamboo floors in the bedrooms with area rugs. The whole lot is 1/4 acre and the backyard offers 6 ft privacy fencing with grass and natural (pine straw) areas. My dogs love to sun themselves on the yoga stage. The yard offers sun and shade on most days. We have cool dog-owner neighbors on all 3 sides. Great, quiet neighborhood for dog walking. Please keep your dogs on a leash when venturing through the neighborhood. We're 3 blocks to water view of the Bay, 2 blocks to the private marina, a 10 minute walk to extensive state forest hiking trails, and a 5 minute drive to the beach (special permit is required for dogs to access the beach). Dogs are welcome pretty much everywhere else in this area, including numerous restaurant patio areas (will supply a list of our favorites). Your well-behaved angels with fur are very welcome in our home! Come and enjoy!
