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.

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!
We brought a group of people down for the 30A Songwriters Festival. We had two couples and two additional adults. The house was perfect for the group as they have two suites upstairs and an additional living space with bunk beds downstairs. The house is lovely, has a great screened porch, is two blocks from the beach, and the kitchen has all of the pots and pans you need (as well as some spices). Kelly was a wealth of information prior to our trip and the whole process was really easy. We could not recommend this place more highly.
When we walked upstairs the only word I could think of was "wow"! Such attention to detail, such an inviting space, it seems everything was thought of and considered so we would have a nice visit. The bedrooms are nice, spacious, and have their own TV's and private bathrooms. The kitchen is newly updated and has everything you need. A nice large screen TV in the main room made for great watching of college bowl games, and the large dining table was perfect for the spread of food we had. The screened deck was made festive with a decorated Christmas tree, and the holiday lights draped around the ceiling added a fun touch. We loved sitting out there day and night! The short walk to the Red Bar and other establishments is perfect, and the beach is as always, the best beach on the coast. All in all a very nice and comfortable place to stay and we will most likely return this spring and/or summer. Thank you Kelly for making such a nice memory for us.
Stella Luna is a lovely home steps from Grayton beach. Ms. Kelly is so gracious and a wonderful host. The home is very clean and everything you might need is provided.
I so enjoy staying at their properties, The Smith house and Stella Luna, both so different but so beautiful.
This house was wonderful for a group of High School friends getting together for the weekend. The house had an open floor plan upstairs with nice TV/sitting area to watch football and a wonderful screened in porch to sit outside and play cards. The owner sent us plenty of information about the area and the house is walking distance to several restaurants. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely plan to rent this house again!
Only steps to the beach, and of course, the world famous Red Bar- yes. However, that's just the beginning of what made Stella Luna such a great get away for us. First, Kelly the owner, was beyond courteous and kind and went out of her way to make sure we enjoyed our trip. She started by sending a very detailed email of what to do in Grayton and the surrounding area. From restaurants, to paddle boards, to fishing- phone numbers, directions- even her personal favorites. So so cool !And, once we got there- she even texted to make sure everything was good and we were set! Kelly went out of her way where most owners don't.
Second, the house is beautiful and comfortable. From the furnishings to the sheets to wonderful screened in front porch. You feel like your home. Oh, and the bikes and beach gear- such a great extra.
I've rented a lot of homes, this was a favorite.
Our family of 4 had a terrific, relaxing and fun vacation at Grayton Beach. Choosing Stella Luna was a great decision. The beach was an quick and easy walk, and once on the beach we were treated to the beauty of the white sand and gorgeous Gulf water which teamed with fish and family fun everyday ! It was truly amazing that Stella Luna provided beach chairs, beach toys, beach towels and boogie boards! The beach atmosphere was friendly and comfortable and not crowded we loved every minute we were there!
After the beach, there a several restaurants and shops within walking or biking distance to visit. We had alot of fun along with some great food! We rode the bikes provided by Stella Luna everyday and enjoyed exploring Grayton Beach and meeting lots of really nice and friendly people!!!
Stella Luna is a beautiful and inviting house, which will end up feeling like your home! Stella Luna is immaculate and pristinely clean and fresh. The decor and upgrades in the home are tasteful and lovely. Stella Luna had all the conveniences we needed, right down to the laundry detergent and ziploc bags, which made it so easy to be comfortable and at ease! We loved sitting on the screened in porch and just enjoyed the days and our time together as a family.
The best part of Stella Luna? ... Well thats easy! Its Kelly and Billy, who were so kind and hospitable. They made certain we were happy and comfortable. Kelly communicates so well and she made certain we had all we needed. She even helped us with a birthday party! Kelly is always available to help she is terrific person! She will feel like your family!
We plan to head back to Stella Luna next year and for many years to come. It is the vacation home we have dreamed of! The experience of Stella Luna is enhanced by her owners, the beautiful Gulf and the unique vibe of Grayton Beach! Thank You Buzzett Family!!
