Very nice rooms. Great breakfast.


Great place for weekend getaway

4.4 on July 20, 2016

My husband and I wanted a low key anniversary at the beach, and this was the perfect place. Our room "Big Easy" was small, cozy, and clean. Breakfast was delicious. There were bikes to rent nearby, and Seaside was less than a five mile easy ride away. The area was busy, but beautiful, and this place is really the best deal you'll find.


Fun time at the Hibiscus

4.4 on July 15, 2016

Staying at the Hibiscus was a lovely time. The rooms are large, nostalgically decorated and comfortable. Our only complaint was the fact that our room is directly above the cafe and the banging started at 9 am. So if you want to sleep in at all, forget it! The breakfast menu was limited but free! Really cute place!


It was like going to my grandmothers house.

This is not a fancy B&B so if that is what you are looking for this is not for you. I felt like I was spending the night at one of my grandmothers homes. Our room was sweet. They will "tidy" your room each day if you let them know. The breakfast was great and the staff that worked the dining room were great.

Our first trip to SoWal could not have been better! The Hibiscus is a perfect getaway spot. We love Grayton Beach and we can't wait to go back!


Awesome getaway

This was our fourth time to visit the Hibiscus Coffee and Guesthouse, and the first time to book the Turner room. The best part about this guesthouse is that you feel at home here, treated as a special guest. Also the wonderful 50's style makes it feel as if you have gone back in time. The breakfast that is great! My favorite is waffle wonderful, but all the dishes are excellent. During our stay, we were surprised with a concert in the backyard that we didn't expect. Also this guesthouse is extremely close to wonderful restaurants, shops, etc., and is a short walk down the street to the beach. You actually feel as if you are a part of the community. Absolutely wonderful!!
