The snorkelers in your group will love the new artificial reef called Sea Turtle Reef, deployed in 2017. Located just 783 feet out from the Grayton Beach State Park access, it is becoming a haven for sea life. Each of the 4 snorkeling reefs comprises 40 acres of permitted sea bottom. The Sea Turtle Reef is at a depth of 12-19 feet. We strongly recommend that snorkelers use a kayak, paddleboard, or other flotation device when visiting the snorkel reefs. Sea conditions can and do change quickly and often. Enjoy!

- The house was amazing. And will 100% do it again

Jun 28, 2022

- Good location and value.

Jun 13, 2022

- The house is absolutely amazing! We had such a wonderful time! Our family vacation was perfect because we picked this awesome getaway. The bikes were so great to jump on and ride the path to the beach. The front porch and the back porch were great to relax on and visit. The kitchen was huge, the rooms were lovely, and the dining room table was big enough to accommodate all of our family. The location is perfect! Right down the road from shops, places to eat and most importantly the beach. You won’t be disappointed.

- Pros: The place met our needs perfectly in the areas of size and location. The community pool area and use of bikes were awesome touches that we used multiple times and our family enjoyed.

Cons: Parking was very tight with a mini-van and Honda Pilot. Would be almost impossible with two larger vehicles like a Suburban and full sized 4-door truck. Just something to consider before booking.

All in all, we really enjoy the place and would book it again in a heartbeat. Thanks again RealJoy!

- A very enjoyable trip and a great value.

- This home was absolutely stunning. Our experience in Florida was amazing and we cannot wait to go back! The house was clean and all the amenities were beyond what I expected.

Blue Mountain Ahhhhhhh - The neighborhood is lovely. The house suited our needs with the exception of having enough seating in the living room. And really this was only an issue in the evenings when we were “in for the night”. Bedrooms were very spacious. Make sure you run the bathroom fan in the upstairs hall bathroom when showering otherwise the steam will set the fire alarm off!!! Overall, a great place to stay for our two families(4 adults, 4 teens)

Oct 03, 2020

- Great stay! We will return to Highland Park.

- Not a bad stay, but internet could definitely use some upgrading
