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!

PERFECTION

  • 5 of 5
We had an absolutely perfect holiday in Grayton staying at Stella Luna 1.

The listing was good but had only one fault - it didn't do justice to this wonderful property! The owner has thought of absolutely everything and provided it. Super-close to the beach, extremely comfortable beds, a/c, great showers, linen, beach towels, beach kit, a fantastically equipped kitchen and laundry, BBQ and bikes for the family. The whole family adored it. Our particular favourite feature was the screened in porch and the day bed there: perfect for breakfast, a midday retreat from the sun and mozzie-free sundowners!

The owner provided some great reccomendations for places to eat and things to do. She has been a delight to deal with from the moment we made our first enquiry.
Can't recommend this highly enough! We have started to plan our return!

We thoroughly enjoyed everything. Owner was very informative and accommodating. Charming house and just a short walk to the beach.We will definitely be coming back. Grayton is quite charming and so much more like home (Asheville, NC). We love it.

We had such a lovely time at Stella Luna...lots of laughs and great meals. Kelly was such a wonderful host. She has thought of everything to make our stay so comfortable! She was so responsive when one of the bikes had a flat tire...we had another one in 10 minutes! Fresh flowers and a bottle of wine were terrific touches to an already beautiful home. My favorite place? - the porch in the morning, cup of coffee, people running by or walking sweet dogs. I sat there until it was time to "suit up" and head to the beach. I'd recommend Stella Luna to anyone!

LOVED STELLA LUNA FOR A GREAT FAMILY BEACH TRIP

  • 5 of 5
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!!
