Stella Luna - Fresh & Comfortable in Old Grayton

Bedrooms 3
Space 2,340 sq ft
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

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, 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!

Stella Luna - The Perfect Grayton Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

Stella Luna is located in the perfect spot for enjoying Grayton Beach... A short 5 minute walk to the beach, the Red Bar, and Chiringo can start your day or end your evening... The property is immaculately kept and everything you will need is provided... Kelly also provided detailed recommendations/reviews of local restaurants along with recommendations for local sight seeing... I highly recommend this property and will be using it again on my next trip to Grayton Beach!!

Stayed at Stella Luna for a girls trip. It was perfect for us. The house is beautiful and had everything we needed. Screened in porch was our favorite hangout. Kitchen is very well stocked with anything you need to cook. Just like being at home! Kelly is fabulous, full of all the local info you might need before you arrive. She is a great host. I have rented many houses and have never had an owner reach out like she does. The location is close to the beach and local shops and restaurants. Look forward to renting from her again in the future. Thanks Kelly for making our Big 60 celebration perfect.

Feel like you're at home at the beach.

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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.
