Guestbook comments from the owner:
Our family absolutely loved the Grey Whale and it was the perfect place to spend Christmas. The house was spotless, beautifully furnished and big enough to allow everyone a little space of their own. We enjoyed every serene and scenic moment spent so close to the ocean which could be seen and heard from almost every room. Most restaurants in Mexico Beach were closed for the Holidays but it didn't matter because we were able to prepare homemade meals in an extremely well equipped kitchen with an amazing view. The three private decks were fantastic and allowed everyone to truly enjoy the proximity to the ocean. Everyone, including our dog, spent a lot of time on those decks gazing at the water and taking in the ocean breeze. We also took lots of walks on the white sandy beach and really appreciated the fact that it was very quiet and dog friendly. Teresa, thank you for having been so accomodating and such a pleasure to deal with! We had a wonderful and memorable Christmas at the Grey Whale and we hope to stay there again the next time we're in the Florida Panhandle.
1st time in Mexico Beach and loved it. The house was beautiful and being on the beach gave us the freedom for our teenagers. They enjoyed immensely sun bathing, fishing the surf ( they caught several sharks ranging from 16" to 4 ft), walking the beach shelling or just sitting on one of the decks taking it all in. Wonderful vacation. Teresa was wonderful to work with. She took care of all our needs. A transformer blew just outside before we arrived which affected the air conditioning. She was really quick in getting that taken care of. Will definitely be back.
A beautiful home on a great beach! Home was very clean and very nicely decorated! Kitchen was well stocked for cooking in, and the large open floor plan on the main level was very comfortable! The beach is very close and the outdoor shower area was great for keeping sand out of the house! I highly recommend Grey Whale if you are headed to this area.
Beautiful home. Our family of 7 had the best vacation ever. Lots of great memories made here. The amenities inside the end home surprised us all. And the condition of the home is remarkable. I truly felt at home and can't wait for our next trip back.
had a great experience at the Grey Whale this past week. The house is gorgeous, well stocked, and in a great location. I loved everything about the house. Having 3 balconies was wonderful. The house is close enough to the ocean to always be able to hear the waves. The kitchen had everything we could ever need to prepare and store food. It even had puzzles, bubble bath, and beach equipment. The house is very well maintained. I loved being able to bring my dog. The house being located on a dog friendly beach was convenient and fun. The location is great. We went to Panama City for dinner a couple times and to rent jet skis. We also went to Port St. Joe. Neither of these were a bad drive. We used the grill to cook dinner one evening. The large dining table made it so that a group of 9 people could all eat a meal together. It was so nice to stay in a beach house because we didn't have to worry about forgetting things when we went out. It was easy to go back inside and get it. The only suggestion I would make it to get a nice sprayer attachment for the hose outside. This would make it much easier to clean the sand off of the dog outside. Also, this house may be challenging for someone with painful arthritic knees. You must navigate 2 or 3 long sets of stairs each time you go to your bedroom. I would highly recommend the Grey Whale. We will definitely return!
This place was just amazing! Our family had such a wonderful week! Can't wait to do it again! This house was just perfect! Had everything you can think of that you might clean and well furnished. Right on the beach was perfect! We could sit on the deck and watch the kids play. The guys would fish and scallop and the girls would lay on the beach and soak up the sun. Ate great seafood every night! The rental agency was top of the line! Just can't say enough to do this place justice!!!! Great place to stay for any vacation!!!
From phone call to book, our experience was great! I spoke with Teresa, she is a true professional, gave us excellent advise & recommendations. We really enjoyed the amazing beach & the house was extremely nice but a few stairs less would have been better for our older knees.Accomodations with veranda on each level was great!
My entire family loved every minute of this vacation & if we decide to do this again Grey Whale is it & my first call is to Teresa. Everything you could need is there. This house was perfect to enjoy the beach Marietta, Georgia Family
This is the perfect beach house! Wonderful location! Beautiful understated beach decor. The house is stunning! Kitchen had everything you would need! The house was set up perfectly for our family. Living quarters on the first floor, bedrooms and laundry on the second floor and third-floor was a master suite. Especially loved the coffee maker in the master bath! Home was clean and well cared for! Beach was perfect - clean and so many shells! Watch the dolphins while sitting on the porch having coffee! Empty lot next-door. Quiet location. Right on the highway, but home as well insulated and cannot hear traffic. Within walking distance to fun family restaurants. Dollar store and grocery store very close! Hoping I can convince my husband to go back again!
Grey whale exceeds every expectation one man guy have for a vacation home rental. Great location. Beautifully decorated. We are from the area and spend most of our vacations out of the Cape and always recommend people make the effort to stay out there. But Grey Whale is an exception!
Had a great vacation at Grey Whale. Property was as described, clean, and great views. Had been worried about road noise being on Hwy 98, but this was not an issue at all. Gulf water was beautiful and clear, beaches were white sand and clean. Beach was mostly empty in late September 2017. Would definitely rent again and recommend.
Great house with a beautiful view
My family and I stayed in the gray whale and had an AMAZING week! The views from all three decks were breathtaking! The house was well stocked with all essentials and then some. I loved everything about the well stocked kitchen and enjoyed cooking with a great view. The house is huge and has more then enough space! I can’t say enough good things about our stay at the gray whale! There is a lot of steps in this house to get to the master suite on the top floor, but the view is worth the steps! The damage from hurricane Michael is obvious and heartbreaking but you would never know it if you just looked at this house! All the locals were very appreciative of visitors and revenue coming in, which is exactly what they need right now!

This was my second stay at the Grey Whale. The first was prior to Hurricane Michael.The Grey Whale is a solidly built, beautiful, luxury home. Very nicely decorated, clean and has all the amenities of home. Every deck (there are three!!!) has beautiful water and sunset views!Even post hurricane, the beaches are just as beautiful as ever!The sunsets? Some of the most beautiful you will see anywhere!Teresa's Beach Homes is super easy to work with and very responsive, too!

We enjoyed the spacious home and truly ocean front location. Property managers are amazing and responsive. Mexico Beach is working hard to recover from Hurricane Michael and we were glad to do our part for the economy!

Going to miss the Grey Whale 2019
I have loved the Grey Whale for 6 years! I have enjoyed being there in January and February! It’s a wonderful home on a beautiful beach! The community is welcoming and I will SO miss being there this year! Best wishes to all my friends in MB! I will be back in 2020! My heart goes out to all of you who are working so hard, what a blow! It’s not just very nice, it’s WONDERFUL!

Lannell,Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I hate that you will not be able to visit us this year, but we hope that with a year of healing we will be able to come back better than ever in 2020!For all other guests, Grey Whale will be available for rental come Spring 2019.
We have been to grey whale for the past 2 years now and will be going back this august. I am so happy it survived the storm. This house towers over everything in the area and is so beautiful/comfortable on the inside. Step out the back door and your on the beach. Highly recommended! 5 stars!

Brittney, I'm so glad you love Grey Whale as much as we do. We are excited to have you back for another year!
We had an amazing staying at Grey Whale. It is a beautiful house and a wonderful location. The house offers everything you would need if your hosting a large group or just a small family like us. Theresa and Terri also made renting the easiest experience. Unfortunately our last stay got cut short by Michael but we will definitely be staying there again. If you ever find yourself looking for somewhere to rent, the Grey Whale is amazing!

Hey Chris, I am so glad you enjoy Grey Whale and enjoyed our communication throughout the entire "ordeal." I hope to see you all back this year!
Beautiful, Relaxing Vacation
The Grey Whale was not only beautiful, it was wonderfully located right on the beach plus a less busy area of the panhandle. My husband and I went by ourselves and all I asked for was as close to the ocean as I could get and peace and quiet. We have a blended family of six kids (which I felt a little guilty for bc they would have LOVED that house) and I work at a school so I truly needed rest, peace and as little neighbors as possible:) Thankfully I got all three for one price. I couldn’t recommend this place enough. This home is also beautifully decorated with the master being on the third floor, so you don’t hear anyone on the first floor if you want to sleep in or take a nap. We will definitely look at coming back again.

Fun and Quiet Time!
The Grey Whale was a great house to enjoy time on the beach and a quite easy going vacation! We enjoyed being so close to the ocean and enjoying our daily walks--there were not too many people there so that made it nice for privacy and family time. The kitchen had everything we needed except a toaster but that was fine...and the house was well stocked with towels and whatever else we needed. Very nice vacation home--a great find.
