  • March 2015 Stay

    "Water Color is a great vacation spot. Beach is outstanding! Rental house was nice. 360 Blue (property manager) was somewhat disappointing. First night we had a toilet about to overflow and called the "emergency" number. No call back. We finally found another number after waiting and they sent someone to help. I don't want to go into detail about everything we called about, but they are not very efficient. They are nice when you get someone one the phone however. I'm still waiting on a call back about our WiFi. I've called four times now. The inconveniences of luxury living. LOL"

  • Fabulous Vacation Home!

    "We had a fabulous spring break. The home is absolutely beautiful! It is spacious, comfortable and well-appointed. The decor and furnishings are lovely and relaxing. The location is perfect with lots of outdoor space and a private back yard. We enjoyed cocktail hour on the front porch with our neighbors (best friends who just happened to be vacationing two doors down!) almost every night. We loved walking and riding everywhere. This is a perfect location. There were 4 really nice bikes provided. We loved staying in Watercolor and biking to all the nearby communities. The biking and walking trails are fabulous. It was our first time in the area and were very pleasantly surprised by how much the entire family LOVED it! The Watercolor pool and beach were great. Seaside was teenage heaven during spring break. We adults had a great time too! Everyone at the resort and all the wonderful restaurants nearby were super friendly and welcoming. The spa was also very nice (I had a great massage which made the trip even better.) We highly recommend this house (we did not want to leave) and the rental company was great too! Our host met us early for check in. They contacted us during the week to make sure we were enjoying our stay. Everything was in great working order and very clean. We loved the Love Shack!"

  • BEST SPRING BREAK EVER

    "Stayed in "Barefootin" during spring break this year. The house is beautifully decorated and was perfect for us. Three moms and four teenage daughters. Lots of room for the girls and moms to have space. House had everything for cooking, baking, and enjoying cocktails. The four bikes (included with the rental) were perfect for jetting down to Seaside shopping and going to the beach (5 mins away). The moms took the bikes out in the mornings for coastal bike rides. The girls used the bikes to get to and from the beach. Although the location wasn't on 30A, it was very close and the new Public's shopping center was 1 minute away. Easy to get supplies. This was my first time visiting Seaside and Watercolor. First impression was "I love this place!" Just down 3 houses on our street was a Watercolor pool. Not sure if it was heated, but I saw several younger kids swimming in it daily. Seemed like a great neighborhood for kids. We saw kids and adults out riding the bikes and playing in the open grass park-like areas. With the parking passes supplied with this rental, you can park in any Watercolor undesignated parking and in the garage at Watercolor Inn. We will definitely return. Love the memories we made during our stay at "Barefootin.""

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.
