South Walton 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 vrbo 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 comfortable living area boasts a 50-inch Smart TV (for instant connection to Netflix, Amazon videos, YouTube, music apps, etc.), shelves with plenty of beach books, and a built-in cabinet containing games and cards for those long summer evenings.

Two upstairs bedrooms contain comfortable queen size beds from Pottery Barn and 26-inch 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.

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.

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!

About The Owner

I come from a long line of Walton County natives and have 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 year-round residents of Grayton Beach and are available to answer any of your questions or help you with anything you need during your stay. We are honored to own Stella Luna and hope that you will love the house and our town as much as we do.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2011

What makes this cottage unique

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, a gym, and 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!

Perfect family vacation!!! So fun!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Our family of 3 just returned home from a wonderful week at Stella Luna. The location is just a very short walk or bike ride to the beach. Perfect! Everything you need for the beach is provided for you at Stella Luna. We used the beach chairs, umbrella, and boogie boards just about everyday. We rode the bikes everday as well. It was a blast to be able to get out and ride anywhere you needed to go. We rode the bike trail to seaside, and enjoyed every minute. Our 13 year old daughter loved the whole experience and We would recommend it to everyone. What a great place to get away as a family and just enjoy each other's company. Many great memories were made for us on this trip. Stella luna is beautiful inside and out. Kelly has thought of everything. We had everything we needed in the home. We used the grill, and cooked at home multiple nights. All utensils and everything you need is already in place. So easy! It is so clean and comfortable. Truly a home away from home.

Best visit to Grayton thanks to Stella Luna

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit at Stella Luna. We especially enjoyed the outdoor screened-in patio that was on the second floor balcony where we could watch the foot traffic in the evenings. The house was so inviting, even the bathrooms were aesthetically pleasing with modern appliances. The kitchen was very well-stocked, and we were able to host dinner for my family of 12 one evening.

We can't wait to go back!

I have been using VRBO for a number of years and may I say that the owner described this property exactly the way we saw it upon our arrival. Not often have I found the accommodations to be as clean, neat, well cared for, and

overall as tastefully done as Stella Luna 1. Kelly is a pure joy to work with and her personality certainly carries over

in the beauty of this home. This was our first trip to Grayton Beach and it's Sugar Sandy beaches! What a treat!

The home is steps from the beach and every other amenity you could want. Kelly has done all the leg work as far as pointing you in the right direction for restaurants, shops and activities in the surrounding area, again...

what a treat to have it all laid out for you. The home is very well equipped and very comfortable. We will certainly return to this area and this beautiful home.

Thanks again Kelly

Best Beach House Ever

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and 1 of our daughters decided to take a few days off at the end of her Mardi Gras break. I searched VRBO and found the perfect gem. All of the reviews are right. Very clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. The pictures are all correct. Very well stocked with all you need. Just bring the food. The house and it's surroundings are so peaceful. Yes the screened in porch is as wonderful as it says. We spent every morning and evening out there. Although it was chilly, it was February after all, we still enjoyed riding bikes, walking all around town, and hanging out on the beautiful beach. We rode the bikes to Seaside and had lunch one day and just walked around the shops the next. So much to do all around this area, but Grayton is by far our favorite, relaxed, not touristy, gem and Stella Luna our favorite beach house. We really want to come back one day . And will!

Stella Luna

  • 5 of 5

We stay at a lot of vrbo house rentals when we travel, and this is one of the nicest. Everything was very clean, fresh, and new feeling. From the top end appliances, sheets, towels, soaps, etc. to the well-thought out space, it truly felt like our home away from home. You can tell it is a family-used home and not one that is just cycled through the rental pool over and over. Kelly, the owner, was so nice to work with. We were down at 30 A for a music festival, and she was very helpful with information. We can't wait until our return trip!

Very nice house

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Stella Luna. The owner was so prompt and helpful. The house is beautiful and has so many personal touches it makes you feel like you are at home. She was right, the kitchen is fully stocked, no need to bring anything but the food and she even left us a nice bottle of wine to enjoy. The room we enjoyed most was the screened in porch, great for reading and relaxing. We visit this area a lot but never stayed in this specific community. It has a nice quiet family atmosphere. We didn't even have to take our bikes, the rental has four. Restaurants and shopping are just a short bike ride or walk away. The beach is a short walk and she has everything you need. Great place to stay I highly recommend it for a couple or a family.
