Do you ever drive past a place, see lots of activity but have no clue what all the hustle is? Reid and I needed a quick overnight getaway and parenting break. We decided to drive down to one of our favorite beaches in Florida. This was a last-minute trip and Reid booked the day before we left. We thought we would just get a typical hotel chain since it was so last minute. Reid did a search all over Florida’s 30A and thankfully discovered this quaint vintage Bed and Breakfast in Grayton Beach, Hibiscus Coffee & Guesthouse.
We arrived at 5:00pm and the check-in process was super simple. They had texted Reid’s phone with arrival instructions, and everything was waiting for us. Our room was the Funky Bird Room, located on the first floor of Bert’s Barn. The grounds are lush with Florida plants and a big front porch. Upon entering the old-fashioned room, you are entertained with vintage bird art sprinkled into the décor. It’s not fancy, but feels hip and very Anthropologie. Just my thing. The room included a small kitchen with full size sink, mini-fridge and microwave. Just what we need for a one night stay and no kids.
It was fun staying the night and feeling like we were going back in time, but the best part was waking up to the Florida sun and heading over to the café for breakfast. Yes! This place still give you breakfast, for free! It is not pre-packaged danishes either. Reid and I each had fresh old fashioned oatmeal topped with fresh fruit while I had homemade granola and milk. Might I add, the coffee was one of the best on 30A.
As a small business owner myself, I encourage you to check out this quaint, family owned guesthouse. It was a great retreat. Great, walkable location and most importantly, great coffee!
See you in Florida. (If you have a need for a place that sleeps 10, check out this rental.
