  • Perfect vacation at Pelican Porch!!

    ""If we return to Watercolor, can we stay here again?", the kids asked before our vacation ended. "ABSOLUTELY!" It's been 10 years since we've visited the beaches on 30A. The kids are now old enough to bike, swim and play tennis on their own. Watercolor was the perfect spot for us. Pelican Porch is beautifully appointed and well maintained. Our every need was accommodated. Each bedroom suite has its own full bath. The porches and decks are wonderful! My husband used the screen porch off the master as his office for the week. Bob and his team corresponded efficiently with all the information we needed to make our vacation a success. I can't imagine a more perfect location in the community to stay. Ideally situated close to the beach club (w/pool), boathouse (w/pool), tennis courts and town center of Seaside. Bike rentals were included in our rate, bikes were waiting for us upon our arrival. When we had trouble with one of our bikes a replacement was provided quickly (Thanks 30A Bike Rental!!) My husband played Sharks Tooth one day. When he arrived for his tee time he was told he was not eligible to play because he was not renting at Watercolor through St. John Properties. When he mentioned the club he is a member of at home, they allowed him to play under reciprocity. I may have misunderstood, I thought we had access by renting Pelican Porch. This may need some clarification. He loved the course. Transitioning to real life after a week at Pelican Porch is not easy…it was a wonderful vacation. There is much we miss about it. We hope to return one day!"

    "What an amazing week! My family did not want to come back. This home is truly special. The owners are also wonderful to deal with. The house has wonderful pieces of art, and is also beautifully decorated. It is a true gem. The bunk rooms for the children are precious. We had an amazing time. We will defitnitely be back, and will stay at this house. No need to look anywhere else. Thank you Chris for allowing us to make memories in your home!"

WaterColor Travel Tips

You'll fall in love with the eco-friendly design and environmental stewardship in the master-planned community of WaterColor, Florida. There's a spa, shops and restaurants in WaterColor as well as 499 acres of open space reserved for preservation. This community is all about taking in and protecting its natural surroundings.

WaterColor is located in Seagrove Beach on Florida's Emerald Coast. You'll find that this serene and quiet destination offers a lot to do for family vacations including a number of off-beach attractions such as exploring forests in the surrounding area and shopping on Highway 30A.

WaterColor Attractions

Get in touch with nature with a visit to Point Washington State Forest. This 15,000-acre forest is home to more than 10 miles of trails for cyclists, hikers and those who want to enjoy nature's beauty. You'll find that the most popular trail leads you from Eastern Lake to Cassine Garden where you'll see an endangered red-cockaded woodpecker or gopher tortoise if you're lucky. The forest is mostly made of sand hills, basin swamps, wet flatwoods, wet prairie and cypress swamps. There are threatened and endangered species that call Point Washington home so you'll want to treat the area with care, but it's certainly a site to see on your vacation.

The kids will love Camp WaterColor in Santa Rosa Beach. They'll get to explore their creative side while meeting other children and having fun at this two-day adventure. The camp is open to young beach-goers between the ages of 3 and 12 and is conveniently located near the sand and surf. Other activities during Kids Camp include field games, splash contests in the pool, stepping stones, hula hoop contests, sandy candy and tie dyeing.
