Built in 2001 and completely renovated in 2012, Stella Luna 1 is comprised of the upstairs portion of our 2-story beach house known as Stella Luna. Stella Luna 1 is perfect for couples, vacationing friends, and small families, and accommodates up to 5 people. (If you rent Stella Luna 1, you will have the entire property to yourselves. We do not rent to 2 separate groups at the same time.)
Stella Luna 1 is spacious, bright & beautiful, with an open kitchen / living room / dining room arrangement. Charcoal gray 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, cards, and jigsaw puzzles for those long summer evenings.
The two bedrooms contain comfortable queen-size beds from Pottery Barn and flat screen TVs. Each bedroom has its own private bathroom, with a 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 large screened porch is probably the best feature of the house. 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. Once you get on that day bed, you won't want to get off! 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 large carport and a 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, various floats and beach toys, 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 1 is the perfect vacation retreat . You will want to come back year after year!

I come from a long line of Walton County natives and spent every summer of my childhood on the sands of Grayton Beach. My husband & I moved here permanently when our sons were born and were lucky to have raised them in this magical beach town. 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.

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, and surfing in the Gulf to playing in the 'pass' at Western Lake. You can try kayaking or Stand Up Paddle boarding - on the Gulf or on the calm waters of Western Lake - and you can snorkel on Grayton's new and amazing artificial reef structure off the State Park. Nearby you can find a world-class water skiing facility, dolphin cruises, freshwater springs, and even horseback riding stables. 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 off-road bike paths along 30A. Grayton is the epicenter of 30A!

Great place to stay with families
Kelly we really enjoyed Stella Luna, having the downstairs for the teenagers was a plus. All of our expectations, have been meet, very clean, all the necessities for a great vacation. Look forward to booking again.
Feel like you're at home at the beach.
Stella Luna was the perfect beach getaway. When you walk through the house for the first time you'll feel like you're at home. There are personal touches and beautiful art that welcome you instantly. Everything you need is there. The beds are super comfortable and the bathrooms are fantastic. This is a perfect spot for a family rental or for a group of friends like mine. The screened in porch was my favorite part of the home. It was wonderful to sit and chat with my friends over coffee. But the best part of the home is the location. Just a few blocks from the beach, restaurants, shops and coffee. I so enjoyed being able to walk everywhere and get to and from the beach easily.
Thank you for such a wonderful stay! We can't wait to come back!
Fun times at Stella Luna
Four of us stayed for 6 nights at Stella Luna. It was our first time staying in the Grayton Beach area. The house was ready when we arrived and looked even better than the pictures. Everything is modernized and comfortable. There was also a bottle of wine waiting for us. The location is so convenient and walkable to the beach and the Red Bar. We would certainly recommend staying at Stella Luna again.
A Five Star Experience!
Stella Luna provided us with a wonderful first visit to the panhandle area of Florida. Kelly was very hospitable and responded to all our inquiries quickly and in depth. The house was one of the best furnished houses we have had the opportunity to rent. The bikes and beach gear were great. The location is within walking distance to numerous good restaurants and 5 minutes to the beach. The screened porch is awesome for morning coffee, reading, or watching the activity of Grayton Beach. We are already thinking about our next visit! A 5 star experience.
Best Vacation Rental Ever!
Stella Luna 1 is a wonderful vacation home. Kelly has it decorated beautifully. Just as the pictures depict. And the Christmas decorations were perfect. The "garland" on the mantel and the lights & tree on the screened-in porch were just the right touch. Our first day there we walked to The Red Bar and even walked up the street to AJ's. And, of course, we walked to the beach every day. Everything is conveniently close to walk or bike to. We also enjoyed sitting on the deck at Chiringo. Thank you Kelly for making our trip to Florida an enjoyable time. Wish we could have stayed more than 3 days
Very convenient-Great house
What a great property in a great town! The house came with everything you would need for a great trip to the beach. Our family of five enjoyed the bikes, beach gear, etc. Very convenient to everything along 30A. As you can see from the photograph, the house has a great screened in porch tucked away in the trees (our family favorite)...perfect as a sleeping porch, morning coffee, or just relaxing in the afternoon.
The house was PERFECT in every way and the property owner was very helpful throughout. We are already planning our next trip...can't wait to go back.
Charter Boat Fishing right from the beach in Grayton - A truly unforgettable experience and you'll catch your limit every time!, Stand Up Paddle Board rentals - Once you try it, you'll want one of your own!
