Quick Getaway

3.0 on August 08, 2016

The location is great but the parking and drive is very tight. We had the Romance Room and it stated it had adjacent room for kids. It does, but it is too small. I wouldn't plan it again based on using that space. It would be great as simply a couple's space, hence the name, but the adjacent room should only be considered suitable as a sitting area.


Another great stay at Hibiscus!

This was our fourth stay at Hibiscus. Always a fun relaxing visit.


A wonderful surprise

We planned a last minute trip to Santa Rosa Beach to visit with my son, daughter in law and grandson and had trouble locating reasonable accommodations. I noticed that the Hibiscus was #1 rated B&B on TripAdvisor and decided to check it out. The place has a bit of a throwback feel to it, which we love - lots of trees and shade and the buildings are a bit older but well kept. We loved our little room and the breakfasts by Casey were amazing. We enjoyed our stay and will return.


Great, but...

I gave cleanliness 3 dots only because I found the previous occupant's dirty undergarment and shirt in a drawer. It didn't bother me. Overall, this place is amazing! It was home away from home for my boyfriend and I. We are from Savannah, GA and live on one of the islands nearby. Despite it being in the height of summer vacation season, this location was quiet and relaxing. I strongly recommend this place. It's only a few minutes walk to the beach!


Old Florida

3.8 on July 29, 2016

Great place to stay in Grayton Beach. Old Florida Decor. Loved the old pictures of Bok Tower. Walkable to beach and on the 20+ mile walking and biking path.


Hidden gem!

4.2 on July 28, 2016

We've been coming to Grayton/WaterColor/Seaside for years and this was our first stay at the Hibiscus Guesthouse. What a pleasant surprise. The accommodations had an old Florida feel with an updated touch. The Inn Keeper was fantastic to work with and the breakfast was superb ever morning. We will definitely be back!


Flat 3

4.0 on July 27, 2016

Our stay in Flat Three was very good. The accommodations were nice and the staff was helpful. My kids really enjoyed being able to order their breakfast and loved the cinnamon roll french toast! It was convenient to the Grayton Beach state park and was quiet and private.
