About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The vision of WaterColors Southern origins, the respect for the existing natural features and the intimate small-town planning is what you will see while vacationing in WaterColor.

The two-story house is tastefully and comfortably decorated and gives you the sense of being 'at home' the moment you walk through the front door. The two king-bed master suites upstairs each open onto their own large balcony for complete privacy. A third bedroom with a queen bed on the first gives enough sleeping space for the kids or a third couple. Each bedroom has a private bath. While sitting on the front porch you can enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine while overlooking a park.

A short walk to the neighborhood pool or a 15 minute walk to the beach and enough activities for all ages keeps everyone happy. Walk to the town center for dining and entertainment or drive to any one of many world-class restaurants located on Scenic 30-A.

We provide passes to all pools and beach club. We also provide 4 adult-size bikes and if you have a need for child-size bikes, we work with a company that can provide the appropriate bikes and/or equipment. The house is well supplied for your stay with beach towels, chairs, toys,, and just about anything to call our home YOUR home!


Everyone deserves a special getaway, let WaterColor be yours!

About Pam Oertel

Ken and Pam live in Tallahassee, Florida, and built their Watercolor house in 2005.

We can't find enough time to spend in Watercolor so enjoy sharing it with others.

Pam Oertel purchased this house in 2005

Why Pam Oertel chose Watercolor

Destin is a short drive from Tallahassee, making it a perfect weekend getaway. Once there, however, it is hard to leave!

What makes this house unique

The peacefulness of WaterColor and the numerous activities -- whichever you want. The many golf courses in the area and the dining is superb. We can bike to so many places we rarely need a car.

Very Nice Community

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with the house, the neighborhood, and the little community itself. All the homes are virtually new and its very well kept, average home price here is around 2 mil. Pams house was perfect for our family with 6 people hanging out around a giant kitchen island with window seats, etc. It was pretty cold and the gas fireplace warmed it up nicely. They left a bluetooth speaker so we could pair a phone and play music. Its a short drive to the grocery store which stocks a lot of wine, and the house is about a 15 minute stroll to the beach. Very friendly people. Biggest issue is that all the houses and streets look very similar in the development so you need to open a map on your phone to get back and forth for a few days.

Paradise in Watercolor

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely pleased with VRBO stay in Watercolor. The house was lovely, comfortable and had lots of quiet spaces so that everyone was relaxed. The house was spotless and we had such a wonderful time for our "girls" weekend! Thank you very much. We would definitely recommend this location.

Wonderful beach home!

  • 5 of 5

Loved that this house is in a quieter section of Watercolor. A very quick bike ride to the beach, and close to the Frog Pool (great for the kids). The rooms are spacious, elegant, yet very comfortable. Liked the porches off of the upstairs bedrooms....a great place to read or drink coffee in the morning. The kitchen was very well equipped, and the large island was a great gathering place for our group. The owner was very helpful and responsive. Would love to come back!

Perfect vacation house

  • 5 of 5

My family (includes my wife and 2 small children) recently stayed here and were blown away at the beauty of the area and the home. Not sure what Chews is talking 2 year old walked to the beach and didn't complain so I would not put too much stock in that review. However, bikes should be your primary mode of transportation. We parked our car and barely used it during our entire stay (except for some groceries and a trip to Rosemary beach). Rent this place and you will not be disappointed!
