One of three houses of the former 'Compound', 'Artless Sprite' has been in the Covell family since 1973. Built in 1960, this 3 BR 2 bath rustic charmer sports 2 queen bedrooms and a very large studio bedroom with outside entrance, sitting area, a king bed, 2 single beds. The living room has a double fold out sofa bed. Artless Sprite possesses the most parking space in short proximity to the ever popular Red Bar, allowing up to 6 parking spots. An outside shower open to the warm Florida sunshine provides hot water after a relaxing day on the beach.
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 rustic atmosphere, yet fairy-like, like a sprite, with its ability to make magical memories.

Perfect taste of Grayton! Lots of parking, plenty of space to sleep. Comfy furniture! Short walk to the beach and Red Bar. Great for a girlfriend trip. We didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back. Thanks for sharing!
We had a great stay at "Artless Sprit"... The property was well equipped with everything needed for a relaxing time at the beach... The outdoor shower was a very positive addition to the home.. The only complaint we had was the A/C unit is a little outdated to keep up with the summer heat during the day.. However, it was comfortable at night... The location of the home was fantastic... We loved the atmosphere of the community! We will definitely be back...
We had a lovely time at artless Sprite. This is our families 3rd annual beach vacation, but our first here at Artless Sprite. The house was perfect for our 3 small families. 3 couples with 1 kid each. There was plenty of common space, and the large bedroom was great for one couple and the kids. The two other bedrooms are on the small side, but you won't be spending much time in there anyway! The house is a short walk to the beach, and very close to the red bar. The general store is also in walking distance. The kitchen has everything you need and the picnic bench outside is perfect for evening dinners. I think my favorite part of the house is the outside shower! I never took a shower in the house our entire trip. It's perfect when you return from the beach all sandy. We definitely plan on returning!
Super clean....fun house....perfect location!! Air conditioning problem was taken care of immediately by owner! What a great place to stay in Grayton!!!
The house was very comfortable and clean. No difficulties were had by anyone in the party. We are looking forward to staying there the next time we are in the "Pan-handle".
Stayed at Artless Sprite for a family and friend reunion. This house is funky old Grayton style. Its rustic beachy vibe is a welcome change from sterile cutesy beach decor. The beach access is a straight shot, the Red Bar was a 90 second walk and we enjoyed the outside shower! Thanks for opening up your home to us! We'll definitely stay here again for an annual gathering!
This property is in the heart of old Grayton Beach, which is in the middle of the famous Scenic Route C-30a in South Walton County, Florida on the Redneck Riviera. Artless Sprite is just a half block from The Red Bar and steps from the most beautiful beach in the world! Come experience old Grayton the way it used to be!
