Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-5)

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!

*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

* Check out our other fabulous Grayton Beach rental - The Historic Smith House, a 2 bedroom, 1 bath authentic beach cabin. The Smith House sleeps 2-5 and is one of the most unique properties in the area. VRBO #262496

About The Owner

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.

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 is a gem - as is Grayton Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Stella Luna was hands down the nicest vrbo we have stayed in. Great location - short walk to the beach and to some restaurants. The house was tastefully decorated and so comfortable. The kitchen had everything you would want. The fresh flowers and bottle of wine welcoming us was such a nice touch. Kelly was amazing to work with. She gave us so much great info about local restaraunts and things to do. We loved that after going out on our daily outings with the kids (8 & 9), we were able to come back to the calm of Grayton/Stella Luna. We had unusually cold weather and were happy to find tons of things for kids nearby (Gulf World Marine Park, bowling, helicopter rides, Ripleys museum, great hikes, Morrison Springs). We also have a child on a special diet - and there was no shortage of restaurants that were able to accommodate GF/CF/SF diets. It was such a fun week. We will be back!

Perfect getaway!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was out first time at Stella Luna, but definitely not our last! You are in walking distance from the beach, as well as everyone's favorite, The Red Bar. The house was fully stocked with everything that we may need while staying. My favorite about the house was hands down the screened in porch! It was perfect for drinking coffee in the morning! Thank you for allowing us to use Stella Luna! We can't wait to return!

Quick Trip to Stella Luna

  • 5 of 5

Thus is our second stay in Grayton Beach at one of Kelly Buzzett's charming homes. We spent two cozy winter nights at beautifully appointed Stella Luna. This home is appealing and comfortable in every way. Great attention is paid to the smallest detail for guests' enjoyment....right down to the Christmas tree on the porch! Thank you for a wonderful stay, Susan and Randy

Fantastic Place for a Great Weekend

  • 5 of 5

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.

New Year's beach trip

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great owner, lovely home

  • 5 of 5

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.
