STELLA LUNA - FRESH & COMFORTABLE IN OLD GRAYTON

Grayton Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 2-8)

Built in 2001 and completely renovated and updated in 2011, Stella Luna is a unique property, suitable for a couple or a small family as well as for a larger group or two families traveling together.

This 2-story home can be rented in two different ways: either as a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom home (max 5 people) or as a 3 bedroom/3 bathroom home (max 8 people). For pricing on the 2 bedroom/2 bath option for 5 people or less, please see our listing for Stella Luna 1 at: www.vrbo.com/380525

Stella Luna is spacious, bright & beautiful, with an open kitchen / living room / dining room arrangement. New kitchen cabinets and granite counter-tops complement the all new stainless steel appliances to make cooking and cleaning up a delight. The kitchen bar seats 4, and the rustic French country dining table easily seats 6 (and can accommodate 8). The living area boasts a 42-inch flat screen TV and DVD player, shelves with plenty of beach books, and a built-in cabinet containing games and cards for those long summer evenings.

The large screened porch is probably the best feature of the house. Located on the second floor and surrounded by oaks and magnolia trees, the porch feels extremely private but also serves as a great vantage point from which to watch the comings and goings on Grayton's main street. The porch is arranged with Adirondack chairs forming a seating area on one end and a fabulous wicker day bed on the other end, perfect for lazy book-reading afternoons. Plug your iPod or other music device into the CD player and turn on the festive party lights for an instant 'I'm at the beach' atmosphere! Located just under the screened porch is a spacious carport and Weber charcoal grill. A separate storeroom at the back of the carport contains 4 beach bikes, as well as 4 beach chairs, an umbrella, a cooler and a wagon to carry it all to the beach.

Two upstairs bedrooms contain comfortable queen size beds from Pottery Barn and new flat screen TVs. Each bedroom has its own newly-renovated bath, with a spacious double vanity in the master bath. If an additional person needs to be accommodated, there is a fold-away cot with fresh linens and pillow in the closet.

The downstairs part of the house includes an amazing 'suite' with an additional living area, bedroom (with 2 sets of bunk beds) and an updated full bathroom with a shower. (The downstairs is fully connected with the upstairs.) The downstairs living area comes complete with a slip-covered sofa and love seat, 32-inch TV/DVD, full sized refrigerator and small sink ... a perfect place for the kids to hang out while the parents are upstairs.

After spending the day on the beach, you can rinse off in the fully-enclosed outdoor shower (hot and cold water). Then hop on one of the beach bikes to explore the adjoining beach towns in the late afternoon. In the evening, you have an easy walk to the world-famous Red Bar restaurant as well as several other outstanding dining opportunities.

Stella Luna is the perfect vacation retreat for your family. You will want to come back year after year!

As a 5th generation Walton County native, I spent every summer of my childhood on the sands of Grayton Beach. My husband & I are lucky to have raised our 2 sons here as well. We love the charm and authenticity of Old Grayton, the fabulous beach and lake, the friendly locals, and the quirky nature of our town. We are honored to own Stella Luna and hope you will love it as we do.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2011

Address: 384 DeFuniak Street, Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459

There is so much to do in Grayton, from swimming, fishing, surfing, or kayaking in the Gulf to playing in the 'pass' at Western Lake. Try the hottest new watersport - Stand Up Paddling - on the Gulf or on the calm waters of Western Lake. Fabulous restaurants are a short walk away, and there is also a little convenience store, as well as wonderful shops and galleries, just down the street. Miles of white sand beaches surrounded by State Parks on all sides, and miles of bike paths along 30A. Grayton is the epicenter of South Walton!

Loved Stella Luna for a great family beach trip

My family and our family friends recently enjoyed a great beach trip at Stella Luna. The house is in excellent condition and very modern and comfortable - awesome living space, updated kitchen, flat screens in every bedroom and great living space downstairs perfect for the children to relax after a day at the beach! The owners are really kind and very responsive and have thought of everything you can possibly need for a trip to the beach with kids - wagon, umbrella, beach chairs, toys, bikes, etc. You are a block and a half from the beach - a 5 minute walk. We will definitely be back!!

Great home in Gratyon Beach

My family stayed at Stella Luna for our Spring Break trip this year. We are four people two adults and two pre-teens. This was also our first visit to the "Emerald Coast" of Florida.
I can honestly say that Stella Luna was hands down the most well equipped, well cared for house we have ever rented through VRBO. Everything that we needed was provided by Kelly. The thought she put in to equipping the house is without match. The home comes w/ bikes for touring the area, boogie boards, skim board, beach chairs, a cooler, and a wagon to pull everything in. Inside the home was immaculate. Stella Luna is equipped with a substantial number of books, board games, every kitchen amenity ever needed and new appliances.
The bedrooms have ample space and the beds are very comfortable. The master bath was very spacious and accommodating. The piece de resistance was the screened in 2nd floor balcony which was outfitted with a day bed. Our daughter encamped herself there during our entire stay. There is also an outdoor shower to keep all of that beach sand from coming inside the house.
The beach is about a two block walk and is quite enjoyable. The walk takes you right past Red Bar which is a great bar and eatery. If you need to wait in line then you can walk directly across the street to Zoo Gallery for a bit of shopping. On Thursday evenings there is a Shrimp Boil on the beach just before sunset. It is a MUST do if you want a romantic dinner on the beach.
If you haven’t been to the Grayton Beach area, it is a great mixture of people and personalities. It is definitely more relaxed and laid back than other beach communities down the road (See Watercolor and Seaside). It was definitely right up our ally in terms of friendly and enjoyable people.
In summary, we plan on renting again from Kelly. Stella Luna was fantastic and met all of our needs. Our only comment that is less than outstanding is that the road noise was a bit higher than we anticipated with the traffic going to Red Bar. On the whole, it is a very small negative given all of the amenities and ambience.

Primo Retreat in Grayton Beach!

My son and I came to Grayton Beach to pick up our new YOLO Stand Up Paddle Boards and paddle the Western Lake. The area is beautiful and this home is amazing! Our family has rented many VRBO's around the U.S. but this was the best ever. Beautifully decorated and fully updated with beachy, modern decor. Kelly's attention to every detail was greatly appreciated as well as her availability to answer questions. The amenities that go with the home are everything that anyone could want to make their vacation perfect. The location is in the middle of everything! Close to beach, quaint shops , delectable restaurants and perfect for bicycling. The house is clean and kitchen is extremely well equipped. I loved the large screened porch the best. There is not one thing that we needed to make our long weekend more spectacular! We will definitely come back and bring the rest of our family. I highly recommend Stella Luna!

Best VRBO Experience Ever

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 2, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
We had one of the best vacations ever at Stella Luna. We were scheduled to be there for four nights and ended up extending the time by one additional night. Just wish we could have stayed even longer. While we have stayed at several VRBOs in the Destin area, this was by far the best. Most places you need to bring paper products, some cooking supplies, etc., but here everything was furnished, resulting in us having more time having fun and less time making grocery trips.
Often we bring our own bikes, but this time we didn't have to since four adult bikes were provided. We took advantage of that and rode to Seaside one afternoon for some shopping and sightseeing.
Kelly was wonderful to work with. We had to change our reservations several times. She was so accommodating and pleasant about answering all our questions promptly and making the changes. She made the entire process so pleasant and easy.
While the house is not "on the beach", it is only a very short walk to the beach. You can hear the surf from the wonderful screened in porch. Hence we spent a lot of time out there.
Our next trip to the area will definitely be to Stella Luna or the Smith House.
Thank you so much Kelly and Billy.

Stella Luna is the perfect getaway for anyone wanting to escape from the every day hustle 'n' bustle of life! The home welcomes you as you pull into the drive with its bright color and lush plants/trees leading to the front stoop. As you walk in the door you are greeted with wonderful natural light throughout the home and spacious open rooms with beautiful beach nostalgia that says, "You've arrived!" The homeowners thought of every detail/luxury their guests may desire and no need was gone unmet! From a modern kitchen/dining area spacious enough to cook/serve a 5-course meal for eight to an outdoor shower with cold AND hot water to rinse off your sandy toes from a day at the beach! They even offer four bicycles to navigate your surroundings!
The community of Grayton Beach couldn't be more welcoming or inviting! They love their town and welcome all who visit as if they were one of their own.
Stella Luna is definitely a place of retreat and relaxation offering modern amenities while invoking comfort and peace to all who enter!
