Hibiscus Coffee & Guesthouse
An Old Fashioned, Romantic Getaway
An old fashioned, romantic getaway, Hibiscus Coffee & Guesthouse, is just up the street from the sugar white sands of one of America’s most beautiful beaches. We have 13 distinctly different accommodations, all furnished and decorated with a vintage, Old Florida feel. All of our rooms have satellite TV, mini or full-sized refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee pot, iron and ironing board, private bath, a blow-dryer and WiFi. In addition to 3 pet friendly, three of our accommodations have full kitchens and two others share a kitchen. As always, your stay includes a wonderful breakfast every morning in the café.
We have three very different buildings on the grounds. The Café Building is home to Hibiscus Café and our four original guestrooms: The Turner, Magnolia and Hibiscus rooms upstairs and the pet-friendly Art Deco downstairs. The Woodpecker Cottage is just across the courtyard.
Bert’s Barn, built in 1904, has 5 guestrooms. Downstairs, we have the Big Easy, which is designed to accommodate our wheelchair-using patrons, the Funky Bird which is the second of our 3 pet-friendly rooms and, right across dog-trot from it, is the Old Florida. Upstairs, sharing a full kitchen with one another are the Tropical Bird and Romance Rooms. These two rooms are well situated to rent individually or together as a suite which can accommodate up to 8 guests.
The Flats are where you’ll find the office and our 3 luxury suites. Essentially small, one-bedroom apartments, each has a bedroom with a king-size bed, full kitchen, washer & dryer, large flat screen TV, and fold out sofa-bed. Flat 2 is downstairs and is our other pet-friendly room. Flats 3 and 4 are upstairs and each have a private balcony.
If you are looking for a great place to host your wedding, reception, brunch, rehearsal dinner or other special occasion, our unique garden-style event venue, the Backyard of Love, will accommodate a gathering of up to 75 guests.
Relax in the courtyard overlooking the garden, find a comfy table for breakfast, or sit back in one of the Adirondacks to read a good book. We are located in beautiful Grayton Beach where kicking back is a requirement.
There are not many hotels in 30a and only one hotel Grayton Beach.
We are located between Panama City Beach which is about 25 miles to our east, and Destin, about 25 miles to the west. Our little town is an enclave, surrounded by state park lands.
If you are looking for hotels in 30a and we can’t help, we might be able to offer suggestions. There are plenty of places to stay for five or more nights, but finding hotels Grayton Beach for a one or two-night stay can be a challenge. Here at Hibiscus, we have no minimum stay requirements except for a 2 night minimum on weekends.
There are many good places to eat up and down 30a and several are in easy walking distance. Some places we like, in order of proximity:
AJ’s is right next store. In addition to a large menu, they regularly do live music.
Just up the street, through the blinking light, is Hurricane Oyster Bar (I like sitting out on the screened-in porch) and Chanticleer Eatery, a local lunch favorite.
Around the corner, headed east on 30a, is the Grayton Beer Brew Pub, serving a full menu in addition to their wide selection of locally brewed beer. Next is Borago, our favorite local Italian restaurant, and a little further down, in the Uptown Grayton shopping center, is Grayton Seafood Company, a great place to go for fresh, traditional seafood.
