About Leah Updyke

We reside in Dallas, TX and have been visiting the Gulf Coast since our children were babies! Several years ago we discovered Highway 30A and the welcoming communities of Watercolor and Seaside. We knew this area had to become our second home and in 2013 we found High Tide, the perfect fit for our family!

Leah Updyke purchased this house in 2013

Why Leah Updyke chose WaterColor

WaterColor Inn and Resort and the charming cottages within this planned development along with the adjacent Community of Seaside and others on Hwy 30A are quaint beachside communities offering an alternative to the more commercial areas of Destin and Panama City Beach. Bikes are the preferred mode of transportation and the cottages with large front porches transcend to a quieter and more slow-paced, peaceful time. The bonus is that the emerald waters and white sand beaches and all the amenities of WaterColor are a short bike ride away. Amenities such as access to the 5 WaterColor pools including the Beach Club pool that overlooks the ocean with private beach access, tennis, bike and nature trails, yolo boarding on Western Lake (kayaks & canoes must be rented independently of the BoatHouse at WaterColor), shopping, wine bars and dining from food trucks to, beachfront eateries to four star restaurants. WaterColor has so much to offer and we feel blessed to be a part of the community.

What makes this house unique

From the front porch with the sound system and the 2 wonderful swings overlooking a neighborhood park to the enclosed rear porch offering a unique entertainment area and wonderful gathering spot for friends and family we immediately felt like this was home!

Everything was perfect! Loved the house, it was great for a multiple family situation. So warm and inviting, especially love the outdoor room. My children, grandchildren and my 87 year old mother, my husband and I had the most wonderful vacation. I would highly recommend the house. We had a wonderful vacation!

We had a wonderful experience. The weather turned cooler so we were able to enjoy the back porch and fireplace while watching football. I love that every bedroom has a bathroom too. The house is set up beautifully and was very spacious for all four couples staying there. Truly a beautiful home and we loved the decor also.

A Very Pleasant Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was really one of the easiest vacations to schedule. The initial communication with the owner was immediate, and she answered any questions or concerns in a timely manner. There were absolutely no surprises at all regarding cost, fees, or payments. A very straightforward deal.

The listing description and photos of the home were not exactly accurate according to my wife as she said the home was NICER than what was disclosed on VRBO. The property was clean, well maintained, and had just about any cookware that might be needed. There were plenty of utensils and plates etc. The grill worked perfectly and the property is really set up to cook and eat meals on location. There is a publix grocery store about a block and a half away which made shopping easy.

The beach is close and beautiful and there are many activities to enjoy in the immediate area. We especially liked being able to bicycle around the area on bicycles provided with the home. Do not hesitate to rent this property because everything disclosed is accurate and there are no surprise conditions or fees.

Beautiful, spacious, and felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of nine women loved having bathrooms in each bedroom! The house is spacious and we had plenty of room to congregate in the living area and at both the inside and outside dining tables. Our group especially loved the screened porch with the outdoor eating area. There were even white noise machines in each bedroom, which accommodated our different sleeping patterns as some are early risers and others are not. Publix was located just around the corner from the home, and we enjoyed the nearby shops as well in this upscale community. The décor is most lovely and the home was very clean. We also had plenty of bath towels, hand towels, and wash cloths for our 3-night stay. The owners were pleasant and maintained fluid communication with us prior to and after arrival. They made every effort to ensure we experienced no problems and that we enjoyed ourselves while there. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home in Watercolor!!!

Only 2 minutes to grocery store, 5 minutes to pool 10 minutes to beach club. So much included, grill, beach toys and tvs everywhere. Front porch swings perfect for glass of wine at day's end.

Can't wait to go back!
