Artless Sprite is the first permanent vacation home of the Covell Family who has lived in Northwest Florida since the 1920's and has vacationed in Grayton Beach since the 1930's. Currently owned and operated by 4 sibling owners, Artless Sprite holds a unique place in the heart of this family where formative years were enjoyed with members of the Grayton family who have vacationed together, raised children & grandchildren together, and now live and work together in this laid back, one-of-a-kind old Florida beach town. The name, 'Artless Sprite', comes from a poem written by our father who dreamed it one summer night in Grayton in the 1940's. The name 'Artless Sprite' describes this family cottage perfectly - it is artless in its straightforward, unpretentious atmosphere, yet fairy-like, like a sprite, with its ability to make magical memories.

Jean Silva purchased this house in 1973

You cannot beat this location for the perfect combination of close beach access, convenience to The Red Bar, plentiful parking, and affordability. It truly is the lifestyle of yesteryear.

Ample parking, private entrance to large studio bedroom and outside hot water shower open to the elements make for a good time had by inhabitants of Artless Sprite!

Great house!

Absolutely incredible location. Steps from the beach and Red Bar. Convenience store and grocery are close also. Home seemed more updated than the pictures would lead one to believe. Nice, large kitchen. Cute, shady yard for people watching. Also, we arrived the 15th, not the 8th, my phone won't fix it.

The Way Grayton was Meant to be Experienced!

  • 5 of 5
Artless Sprite…don't change a thing! This was the ideal setting for a quiet spring break. You can't manufacture that authentic beach cottage feel. Only generations of memories made can create this atmosphere.

I vacation to Grayton Beach because I enjoy the beach. Why have a swimming pool if the Gulf is just blocks away? Artless Sprite does a few things really well -- it's a charming old wooden house with loads of character, a cozy place to escape the sun, and, above all else it's in a 100+ year old traditional beach town near snow-white beaches and all the entertainment this stretch of beach has to offer.

Well done Artless Sprite!

Artless Sprite, strange name, but it fits this house because it's a no nonsense charmer. I love the outdoor shower and walking down to Shorty's for a beer or grabbing some smoked tuna dip on my way to the beach! It's convenient and cozy at a good rate.

Old Florida beach house with quirky layout and decor. Just steps from the Red Bar and downtown Grayton. Awesome outdoor shower that i used more then the two inside. Excellent rental for the price and would definitely return.

Small Town Beach LIfe at it's best

Small Town Beach LIfe at it's best

I stayed here last year for several days and it's a step back in time to a little beach village with everything in walking distance. The house is comfortable and clean with 2 bathrooms, in addition, there is an outside shower. About 200 yards from the beach, we could sit out at the beach most of the day, heading back and forth to the cottage as needed, occasionally stopping at the Red Bar, which is conveniently located in between.
At night, we mostly cooked at home but walked over to Shorty's for lunch. It is a relaxing experience in a little town with friendly people. Another planet compared to the high rise beach condos found throughout most of Florida. I plan on returning this summer and enjoying the local 4th of July parade.
