Grayton Beach cottage description

Built in 2001 and completely renovated and updated in 2011, 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. 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 living area boasts a 42-inch flat screen TV and DVD player, shelves with plenty of beach books, and a built-in cabinet containing games and cards for those long summer evenings.

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. 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 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.

The two bedrooms contain comfortable queen size beds from Pottery Barn and new flat screen TVs. Each bedroom has its own newly-renovated bath, 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.

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!

*If you have more than 5 in your group, you can rent the whole house, which includes an additional bedroom, bath, and living area (Total guests = 8). See our listing for the complete house: VRBO #361156

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: As a 5th generation Walton County native, I 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 honored to own Stella Luna and hope you will love it as we do.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  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, as well as 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!
