About Kitty Taylor

I grew up running around Grayton Beach as a youngster. My grandmother had a cottage called the 'Cole Bin' and it's still in the family. Grayton has a great beach, beautiful gulf water and a coastal dune lake that sometimes flows into the gulf. I am a local Broker/Owner of Grayton Coast Properties, a small boutique real estate company located in Grayton Beach. My husband and I love to watch Grayton sunsets. We also enjoy the many great restaurants along 30A. When we aren't working you'll find us with friends cooking out at the beach or boating on the bay aboard the 'Grayton Girl.'

Kitty Taylor purchased this cottage in 1997

Why Kitty Taylor chose Beaches of South Walton

Moon Baby is in a great location on tree shaded Banfill Street across the street from the lake in Grayton. Just a short stroll to the beach boardwalk or the public dock on the lake, enjoy Moon Baby's quiet location. The screened porch is a favorite hangout for our guests. We love dogs so much we allow you to bring them with you. (pet fee)

What makes this cottage unique

Walk to the Red Bar Restaurant-a fun and funky place with live music and great crabcakes. Bike paths are nearby and connect you to Watercolor and Seaside just a couple of miles away. Rent kajaks or YOLO boards and enjoy paddling along Western Lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just left Moon Baby an hour ago and we haven't stopped talking about the wonderful time we had at Grayton Beach. Thank you for allowing us to use your cottage, bring our dog and enjoy one of the most beautiful places we've ever been. The weather was incredible and we love the quaint and charming feel of Grayton Beach. Our 15 y/o rode his bike to Seaside every day to hang out with friends and that made it easy on us not to get caught up in that Spring Break "mess" over there. We much preferred the calmness of Grayton.

We hope to return to the area soon and we'd love to rent from you again.

With many thanks,
Apr 2012

Grayton and Moon Baby were perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

Moon Baby is a bit rustic, but that is not meant as a slight. Instead, it's a warm compliment. It's great to find a house on 30A that middle-class people can afford for a week. It's not a luxury palace, but it is perfect for families. My wife and two young boys (4 and 2) had the best vacation ever staying at this wonderful cottage. We walked to the beach, had bikes from Big Daddy's delivered (which gave us easy access to Blue Mountain Beach, Watercolor and Seaside with no need to drive/park), and loved the convenience and tranquility of Grayton. Red Bar was a 1 minute walk, the beach less than 5 (and we're talking toddler speed). The screen porch is where we spent every evening relaxing and enjoying life. An important note for families with small kids: Grayton is perfect when the waves of the Gulf get too choppy. The inlet/lake area is calm even when the Gulf is rough. Do watch out for the currents in the inlet when they are headed out to see, but it's easy. There are families everywhere, so many people in this stage of life have discovered the joys of Grayton. Thank you, Kitty!

Owner's Response: Stephen, So glad you enjoyed Moon Baby and Grayton Beach! It is a special place. My children grew up playing in the "Pass" when the Gulf was too rough. :-) We love the screened porch also and have had lots of "porch parties." Come see us again soon! Kitty

Happiness and Peace

  • 5 of 5

The Moon Baby has quickly become our favorite cottage that we have stayed in. Our family of 3 and our 2 dogs found this adorable place to be perfectly relaxing. Located just steps from the lake and the ocean. We kayaked the lake in the mornings and spent the rest of the day at the beach. Our nights were spent enjoying the screened porch. If you are looking for the perfect place to make great memories-you have found it- The Moonbaby Cottage.

Humans AND dog felt right at home from the moment we arrived

  • 5 of 5

After a longer than expected drive in and arriving much later than anticipated, my husband, dog, and I arrived at Moon Baby. My dog took right to the fenced in yard and as my husband and I entered the house, we both instantly felt right at home. The whole house is absolutely charming. The place is nicely decorated with a well appointed kitchen. Only minor complaint was the house was a bit dark in the evening. But under cabinet lighting and another lamp in the LR would do the trick. The screened in porch AND the front deck was such a great asset to have and each got used a lot. Little touches like extra pillows and blankets, an iPod/iPhone docking stereo, tons of games (even Twister!), supplied beach towels & chairs, full size washer/dryer w/supplied washing soap, even QUALITY toilet paper were so very appreciated. And the master closet! Such space, you could almost put a twin bed in it. Speaking of the master bedroom, it was SOOO large with separate seating area and cozy, large bed with a lovely down comforter. Perfect for the chilly nights we had during Thanksgiving.

Moon Baby is located on a lovely, tree-lined, quiet street. The only noise we really ever heard was the A/C unit of the house next door. It was a bit noisy when it came on, but we quickly got used to it. And when the surf picked up, you could just hear it down the street. The lovely Grayton Beach was a VERY short walk down the street to the board walk. Just know, take a flash light if you go at night as GB is very dark at night. That was supplied too!

Had we chosen to, we could have remained in GB and had all the food, drinks, and entertainment we could have ever needed, all within a VERY short walking distance.

And a special thank you to Kitty, the owner, who was so easy to work with. When we briefly thought we might need to change to a bigger house for possible friends joining us, she was totally willing to transfer our deposit, etc. to Cole Baby, her other property. And when that didn't happen, she was kind and patient with our course changes.

Such a special property for a couple to relax over a long weekend. And our dog, Roux sends a special 'WOOF WOOF' and a paw pump for the awesome yard.

Moon Baby

  • 5 of 5

Where do I begin? Absolutely love the Moon Baby, Grayton Beach & Kitty. The cottage is so cozy and comfortable and most importantly private. My wife and I have visited three times now! If you want to enjoy the beach, cycling, paddling, great food and people then you've arrived at your destination. Everything moves at a slower pace in Grayton and this is exactly why we love it!
