“Charming”
Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

This place is not fancy, but is very cute. The grounds are beautiful, and the value cannot be beat. Retro old florida done well. The cafe has great food, and the location is within walking distance to the beach and grayton restaurants. Also a short drive to seaside.

This was a retro B & B with furnishings that were from the 50's. We stayed in the Funky Bird Room and it was ideal. There was a proch to sit on in the evening, and the breakfast was very good with large portions. We were aroround the corner from the beach and within a block of two great restaurants with a unique look and history. I would highly recommend it!

Room Tip: Very relaxing.

When you're looking for something other than the cookie cutter condo experience that much of the area offers, the Hibiscus is the perfect spot. It's location just a 1/2 mile (8 minute walk) from Grayton Beach (and The Red Bar) - in between busy Seaside and growing Blue Mountain Beach - is excellent. Stay here!

Room Tip: We prefer the Tropical Bird room. If there's no one staying in the "Romance Room" ne...

Very nice folks and cafe is wonderful! Rustic but clean rooms. Romance suite is very nice with shared full kitchen. Wifi was a bit on the blink but overall ok. Bed mattress was obviously old and sunken in the middle...will need to be replaced pretty soon, but we've slept on worse..ha. Overall quality and amenities a 4, but hospitality and atmosphere pushes it to a 5!

We just stayed at the Hibiscus and found it to be very comfortable, quiet, and homey. We especially enjoyed the old Florida decor in the 'tropical bird room', the adjacent sitting room and kitchen, and the friendly staff. It was a great relief to find such a place and the nearby Grayton Beach State Park in the midst of this beautiful area which is being rapidly engulfed by sanitized, creeping yuppyism.

Tropical Bird is one of my favorite rooms......
I am so glad that you enjoyed it. Yes!! And we are also trying to stay as removed as possible from the yuppyness trying to creep in..... we have been able to for quite some years, and I am confident we will continue too.
Please come back, and try a different room....
I appreciate the review.

We just happened upon this wonderful, quiet, little place and we fell in love with it. We have found "our place" to go to and that's what we were looking for. Quaint, cozy, friendly, minimal children, close to beach, wonderful walk to the beach!.... No complaints AT ALL!!!!! Loved it!!

Perfect word selection (In my opinion)
I even thought to myself, when I moved here and took this position, what a ""quaint little nook"" Ive stumbled upon.
I am thrilled to know others feel this when they arrive and leave.

Just returned from a short stay at the Hibiscus and I am happy to report my experience. We stayed in the Old Florida room with a nice comfy bed and incredible AC. The whole property is cute and rustic. This isn't a Hampton Inn place. Breakfast and coffee was delicious. The garden of Love was cute. The 30A bike trail is 100 feet away and the beach is about 3 blocks. As before, the property is older so the floors creak a little like Grandma's house. I enjoyed listening to the crickets from the front porch. This is a quiet quant oasis. It's a time machine as well with the feeling of something nostalgic.

Room Tip: The property creaks a little. Sandy feet leave a little sand here and there if either of these are...
