About Judy Jones

Outgoing nature loving Bicycle every chance I get.

Nature Hiking. Walking along the award winning landscaping. Borrowing ideas of what to do to my own landscape.. YOLO boarding near the BAIT HOUSE..SHOPPING IN SEASIDE EATING PIZZA AT BUD N ALLEY'S..

Judy Jones purchased this house in 2005

Why Judy Jones chose WaterColor

I love to bike with my kids and it has less truck/delivery traffic in this area.. which means it is safer and more relaxing for all of us.. across the street is a cul de sac and this also affords more space for my family.. We enjoy sharing holidays or just hanging out on the upstairs balcony..Only a Preserve behind our home. Very private and much quieter this way.

What makes this house unique

Biking along the long beautiful paths and bridges of Watercolor is something we look forward to all year. We park our car and only walk or bike to the beach or the Frog Pool down the street from us.

The Preserve behind us offers a quieter stay than some properties in Watercolor and there is no house directly in front of us either. Less street traffic Our home has original art that makes it feel more like a home and not a rental.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fantastic Family Getaway

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

This was our first time vacationing in Watercolor, and at the end of our week we didn't want to leave! We loved the house, neighborhood, and all the wonderful amenities Watercolor has to offer! The house was very clean, bright, beautifully decorated, and welcoming. Our kids are young, and it was so nice having the bunk room off the main living space for them to watch tv and nap in after a fun-filled day at the beach or pool. The huge closets in the house made it much easy for us to keep our belongings organized. The kids' favorite spot was definitely the heated Camp pool that was just down the street. Another great thing about the location of this house is that the Publix is so close. We also took advantage of the pizza place close by a few times, too! We all enjoyed biking and walking the trails through the neighborhood. I could go on and on, as we have so many special memories of our time there! We can't wait to go back! Also, a huge thank you to the owner, Judy, for being so sweet, accommodating, and easy to work with!

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Watercolor and we absolutely loved it. The Shabby Chic was perfect for our family of 5! Owner Judy was wonderful to work with from the very beginning. This house is just around the corner from Publix so very convenient for grocery shopping. We used the bikes, which come with the house, daily to get to and from the beach and pool. We are an active family so this was great for us! We would most definitely recommend this house and are planning another trip next summer to Watercolor!

Wonderful Water-Color Rental

  • 5 of 5

This was out first stay in Water-Color and visiting the Florida Panhandle. The house was perfect for our family of four. It was clean and had everything we needed to make us comfortable for a week. The location in Water-Color was ideal being close to Publix, offering easy bike rides to many pools, and close access to shops and beaches at Seaside and Water-Color. Our children enjoyed the independence of riding bikes in a safe, beautiful neighborhood. The owner, Judy, was great to work with and does a fabulous job communicating. We would highly recommend the rental and hope to be back in the future.

PERFECT vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Seaside for many years and my husband and I agree, Watercolor is our new favorite vacation spot. This house is gorgeous and very roomy. I'm extremely picky when it comes to interior design, and I was very pleased with the furnishings and accessories there. If you enjoying bike riding (which we do), the location of the house is really nice---- not too far from the beach or 2 of the pools, yet away from the busyness. We took our dogs and they loved it too. If you bring pets, I would recommend bringing a pet gate for the stairs to keep them from going up and down needlessly.

Judy was extremely helpful in accommodating us and easy to work with. We look forward to staying there again! : )

Perfect Spring Break Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for seven nights and could not have asked for a better home away from home! My husband and I stayed with my sister and her boyfriend! The trip was extra special as they got engaged on our second night in Watercolor! The house was very clean (I am a germophobe!) and accommodating to all of our basic needs! The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need. We cooked in one night and enjoyed eating on the screened in back porch! The house is well laid out and spacious...the walk in closets and claw foot tub were our favorites! Our ten pound dorkie dog had a blast navigating her way through the house and especially enjoyed the green space out front. Publix is a short walk or bike ride away which was also nice. The owner, Judy, was very easy to contact and super sweet! She made it known that she was available at any time. We enjoyed our stay and did not want to leave. We will definitely be back!
