About Kimbie F. Noble

We've both grown up along the beach. West Coast for me and North East Coast for my husband, but nothing compares to the world famous sugar white sand beaches and emerald waters of Northwest FL. Friends introduced our family to the beaches of 30A in 2005 and we fell in love, hoping to one day own a beach house that we could share with family, old friends, and new friends. From our family to yours, we sincerely hope you enjoy your stay and make lasting memories to cherish.

Kimbie F. Noble purchased this house in 2013

Why Kimbie F. Noble chose WaterColor

Location, location, location! Walk and bike everywhere, you'll never need to get in the car again. Turn to the right and you'll encounter adorable shops and a winebar, turn to the left and you are 5 homes down from Seaside with amazing restaurants and outdoor amphitheatre. Turn behind you and discover all the trails, footbridges and parks that surround Western Lake, providing a way for neighbors to connect for a morning walk or bike ride. Go directly across the street to the beach and resort, home of the James Beard award-winning restaurant, 'Fish Out of Water.'

What makes this house unique

With the house you will receive guest passes for full access to all 5 pools within WaterColor, the Beach Club, and other paid amenities like kids camp, tennis center, bike and standup board rentals. And there are NO extra resort fees, no amenities fees, no extra taxes.

This whole place is Happy!

  • 5 of 5

Really had an awesome time at this home. We were three couples and four kids under the age of five and it was perfect. Easy walk to the beach and beach club - we split time between the two. Also easy to take strollers and/or bikes throughout Watercolor - even watched a movie out on the lawn at Camp Watercolor one night! And Seaside was a quick walk away for shopping or meals. Kids loved being there - the house had some games to keep them occupied and plenty of space for everyone. And Watercolor itself is great - central location on 30A. We had babysitters a few of the nights and were able to get out and explore surrounding areas - Grayton Beach, Alys Beach and Rosemary Beach. This is a perfect home in a perfect location - everyone is already talking about when we can go back.

It REALLY is a HAPPY place!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful! It was our 3rd (or 4th?) year at the Happy Place and we loved it as much as ever! Our family's kids are ages 3-20 and all have a ball with plenty to do. Everything we need is close by, safe, and fun!

Premiere location, Excellent house and great for multiple families

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week long vacation at the Happy Place. It was our first time to Watercolor and we had 2 families with 2 kids each under 4 and a grandmother and a nanny. Each family had a floor and everyone was able to spread out and enjoy. The porches are great for meals and hanging out and the heated pool is ideal for little kids. They really had everything we needed (even for the little kids), so it made it easy on people traveling in. Owner was delightful to work with and was very responsive. I would absolutely rent at this house and in Watercolor again. Fun for people of all ages. Worth the money as the house is nicely kept up too. Enjoy!

Everyone Happy with Happy Place

  • 5 of 5

Pleasing a range of ages and personalities on vacation can be difficult - especially with teenagers - but Happy Place made everyone Happy! Our group of 11 consisted of 7 adults and 4 older kids (boys and girls age 15-21). The home has a wonderful room layout so you feel like everyone has there own "space" and the location gave everyone a sense of freedom to come and go as they pleased. The interiors are beautiful and comfortable so if weather doesn't permit outdoor activities--you are just as happy spending time inside or on the covered decks. We took full advantage of the close proximity to the beach, tennis courts, biking trails and Seaside. The heated pool was an added bonus. Our family loves music so the Sonos speakers throughout the house elevated our Holiday spirit even more. We enjoyed meals at home as well as in Watercolor, Seaside, Grayton and Rosemary Beach. The owner and property manager were both quick to respond to questions and accommodations. This was by far my favorite vacation as a family and we hope to return to Happy Place next year!

Amazing...Couldn't Be Better

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Watercolor many times but Happy Place made this the best visit yet. The house is very comfortable and clean. It's also ideally located so it was easy to head back to the house for lunch and then get right back to the beach. Also, it was very easy to get into Seaside (in fact, I don't think you can get closer). The owner is great to work with and we had no problems. Our kids really loved the pool as well which was heated. The place also comes with several bikes if you want to get around in a hurry. Really couldn't recommend this more highly.
