About the owner: Hello and welcome to "BEACH THERAPY 30A"- It was our goal in building this property that we could share it with many who would love to make family memories and traditions.
Shawn and I have been together since age 16 & 18- Im not 50 and Shawn is 53- How time flies. We have 2 children. Our daughter Kelly is a Navy Physician and recently was married to her husband Joseph. My son Christopher is a Math teacher in a NYC high school.
We also have 2 golden retrievers- Reagan and Murphy- they keep us pretty busy as they are littermates.
We look forward to hosting you in our new home. If you need anything while you are staying please reach out. I will be on site in a separate property.
Why this property? We chose specifically the preserve because of the beach access. It is the only community on 30A that has gated/deeded beach access. We have "private access" to a public area that has no access.

Guestbook comments from the owner:
Perfect rental for our family. Home is Very comfortable, well furnished with everything you could want. Beach is a convenient 10 min walk.Couldn’t ask for a more pleasant stay.
We’ve been traveling to 30a for over 15 years and this is my favorite spot so far! The location is perfect situated between Grayton and Santa Rosa proper. The golf cart makes it so easy to get around! This home is absolutely gorgeous! All of the amenities they provide are perfect and make the stay so enjoyable and easy! No need to bring anything but yourselves swimsuit and sunscreen! It’s the perfect home for two families! We have already booed for fall!!
My family and I have been to 30A many times, but this trip was different. Eileen has created a multi-dimensional setting with her incredible home, the location and her desire for guests to maximize their experience.The home is absolutely stunning. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious and have more than the essentials, to ensure a comfortable stay. The living area and kitchen are setup with everything you need to entertain. And the garage is stocked full of bicycles, beach toys, games and a licensed golf cart to hold 6 people and take out on the road from 30A town to 30A town. And the pools in the neighborhood are a great add too, for non-beach days when you still want to jump in the water.The location is perfect. You can access all the towns on 30A with your golf cart. You have a short walk to a private beach. And 98 is just around the corner, if you want to drive down to Sandestin or Destin.Eileen took care of us in every way — she made sure we understood all there is to do in the area and helped us mold a plan to have the best time. She also listened to our experience to find ways to add to her home and offering, for the next guests and our eventual return later this thankful for the setting she’s created and excited for anyone else who gets to experience it!
We had a great trip and a large part was because this house. Everything you need and more plus some at this house. From the kitchen items to the beach items, you had everything you needed and more. House was extremely clean and amazing quality products all around. Bunk room and games were a huge hit for the kids.
we really enjoyed our stay in the carriage house! eileen made it super flexible for us as we booked extremely last minute, which added to our enjoyment of a quick weekend away. the carriage house was comfortable and had everything we needed. it was so great having access to wonderful beach chairs, umbrellas, bikes, etc. right on the property. all you need to do is pack your beach bag and cooler and eileen will take care of the rest! we hope to be back and have recommended this property to many already! we love grayton beach.

We’ve stayed in a lot of short-term rentals around the country and this was by far our favorite and best experience! Eileen went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. She is communicative and quick to respond, and has thought of every detail. The carriage house is immaculately clean and very dog friendly. The location was within close walking distance to the beach and there are bikes and a golf cart to easily get around. We will definitely be back!

Blessing at the Beach
I loved staying at Beach Therapy 30a. The host Eileen thought of everything to make our stay superb. We loved the home with high ceilings, lots of light flowing in, the beautiful bedroom and kitchen. The porch was so nice to sit and watch the fireworks on New Years Eve. The golf cart was a great plus so we did not have to drive in our car. I loved the location and the local restaurants. Eileen is a fantastic host who made us feel at home and was very friendly and communicated with us every step of the way. We would love to comeback again and bring our dogs to enjoy the backyard and the bike/walk path. The carriage house has everything you need to have a great getaway place that is relaxing and peaceful. Thanks Eileen for a great stay for the New Years holiday.

Clean, cozy, and convenient!
Super clean, very cozy, and extremely convenient, this dog-friendly place more than deserves all of its five-star ratings. The gated neighborhood is quiet, with tennis courts and a pool; you can also get around using the bikes and the golf cart provided. The beach is just across 30A and features two amazing dune lakes, perfect for wading. And Borago, our favorite place to eat at the beach, is right around the corner! Last but not least, Eileen is a gracious and generous host, along with her husband and their two pups. We felt very welcome and are looking forward to a return visit asap!

Thank you so much for choosing our place to stay- and we are super happy that you guys enjoyed!!!!
Thanksgiving was perfect
Big things do come in small packages. From the coffee in the pantry on the first morning to the full range of beach gear, the fat tire wagon to pull it on the sand, and the golf cart to get from A to B, everything was perfect. Eileen is a wonderful host and even had a brand new roasting pan in the kitchen in anticipation of Thanksgiving cooking. Can't recommend highly enough!

My husband and our dog Flint are seasoned road trippers. We wanted to end our vacation at the beach. Eileen's carriage house checked all the boxes and beyond. Clean and furnished lovely. Dog friendly. Kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals. Bed was so comfortable. Thoughtful and attentive host. Loved the use of bikes and beach gear. Access to the Gulf is a easy and a lovely nature filled walk. Four blissful days.
