Welcome to Villa Menthë! This 4,302 square foot home is located in the Lake District of WaterColor and is closest to Sand Hill Park Pool. This unique, luxurious home includes 5 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, bunk area on second floor (not counted as bedroom), and a large 3rd floor loft with built-in bunks (fifth bedroom). The custom draperies, bedding and upholstery make this property both one of a kind and home-away-from-home at the same time. The main level of the home has a spacious kitchen and living room with 14 ft ceilings and a gas fireplace. The kitchen features Carrera marble countertops, custom cabinetry, Wolf range and hood, stainless steel microwave, wine refrigerator, dishwasher, and refrigerator. At the back of the home, French doors lead out to a back porch and patio area with an additional gas fireplace, private pool and hot tub. The serene outdoor living space is complete with a covered outdoor living area, flat screen TV and built in gas grill overlooking the beautiful Western Lake Nature Preserve.

In addition to the main living area and kitchen on the first floor, there is also a spacious dining area with seating for 8 guests and 6 barstools at the breakfast bar. The laundry room, with private entry from outside features full size front loading washer and dryer with a folding station and utility sink. At the front of the home, there is a King guest master bedroom with private bathroom and a large walk-in shower. There is also a powder room off of the main living space.

Heading up the stairs to the second floor, you are welcomed at the top of the landing with a fun bunk room. There are two sets of Twin bunks, a window seat and large drapes for privacy. There are two guest bedrooms on this floor both featuring Queen size beds. One bedroom has a private bath with tub/shower combination and the other has a bath that is shared by bunk room guests. The shared bathroom has a double vanity and walk-in shower. There is also a second washer/dryer on this floor near the bunk area. The stunning master suite is on this floor. The striking color palette and decor of green, blue, and white with its King size bed make this a room you want to unwind in. The master suite has a private balcony with a gas fireplace and daybed swing. The master bathroom also offers double vanities, a great soaking tub, walk-in shower, and large closet.

The third floor of the home is a spacious den and bunk area with 2 sets of Twin bunks, sitting area, and an Xbox 360 perfect for the kids. There is also a separate playroom with table and chairs and a bathroom on this floor that features a double vanity and walk-in shower.

Hailed for its eco-friendly design and environmental stewardship, WaterColor is a shining example of how responsible development not only blends in with its surroundings, but enhances them. With an award-winning inn and restaurant, stately beach cottages, a boathouse, tennis club, spa, shops, restaurants, and beach club, there are always plenty of “civilized” things to do. But with almost half of its 499 acres set aside for open space and preservation, WaterColor's emphasis is clearly on the breathtaking natural environment that surrounds it.

30A Cottages will arrange all your plans and concierge needs prior to and during your stay! Services include, but are not limited to: bike and beach chair rentals, airport transportation, grocery shopping, catered dinners or prepared meals, beach bonfires, kayak rentals, baby sitters, restaurant recommendations, and spa services. The possibilities are endless when vacationing with 30A Cottages and Concierge! Call us for anything you wish!

***For the comfort and enjoyment of all guests, Smoking and Pets are NOT allowed. Watercolor will only permit 2 vehicles per property and any more than that could be fined and or towed. There are street parking spaces available along the streets throughout the community.

NOTE: Golf cart rentals in WaterColor must be made through The Electric Cart Company and will be limited to a maximum of 45 vehicles throughout the community at any given time.

The WaterColor community has grown in popularity, becoming a leading 30A community and a favorite amongst guests from all around the world. With approximately 1,000 people per day using the Beach Club alone, the Board has decided it is time to expand the Beach Club and Camp WaterColor amenities.

Camp WaterColor Expansion Project: Construction began in late Feb 2018 and the projected completion will be approximately 8-10 months. The Camp Pool will be closed for the duration of the project. The Camp basketball courts and tennis center will be closed at certain times during this project as well.

Beach Club Project: Plans are in place to begin work sometime around late Summer 2018, if not delayed. The complete expansion will take approximately 18-24 months. Plans include phasing the project to one area at a time to create as little disturbance as possible and keep the Beach Club open during season. At this time, none of the amenities are scheduled to completely close during the projects. However, some disturbance will be unavoidable as construction takes place.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Probably our best rental in Watercolor to date (we've had 7 or 8). The outside area was a huge hit with the massive grill, hot tub, pool, sitting area with TV, etc. The inside was incredible as well - two sets of washer/dryers, amazing bathrooms, great furniture, large rooms, etc. The only downside was the pool alarm. With older kids it was terrible. We took the batteries out after about 1 hour. I realize the point is to keep kids from drowning, but for adults, it is just bad.

Service was top notch. Brandon had to come out a few times, but he was very responsive. No issues whatsoever. Thanks All!

Second Time as Good as the First

  • 5 of 5

I just completed my second stay at Villa Menthe. It was every bit as wonderful as my first one in September. The house is gorgeous and was the perfect setting for a girls getaway to celebrate my 50th birthday. My favorite part of the house (besides EVERYTHING) is the outdoor covered patio with fireplace, tv and hot tub which was wonderful for the chilly days we had. Heather and Jacklyn were wonderful to work with and went above and beyond to make sure we were perfectly happy. They even recommended a chef (Patrick from Cafe Tango) to bring in dinner one night which we did, and it was amazing! I would not hesitate to rent the house again and tell all my friends to do the same.

Owner's Response: Gosh Cheryl, we're blushing. It's so special to us that you chose to celebrate your birthday in Villa Menthe and that you and the ladies had such a wonderful time. We are definitely in agreement that the outdoor space the home offers can't be beat for hosting friends and family - so many memories to create sitting together around the pool. We look forward to helping you make this an annual getaway so you can "forget where you're from..."

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Our entire family enjoyed the many areas of the house-both in and outside. When a problem arose it was quickly addressed with minimum stress to us. I also want to thank the effort of Bryan as he was extremely helpful in resolving technical issues-TV & Internet. Based on the clean and wonderful house and the great service provided by your staff-Heather was extremely helpful - we are very interested in using 30A Cottages for future rentals.

We loved the house it was spacious and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house it was spacious and cozy. We enjoyed the backyard, the fireplace and pool, we love the Southern Cafe, Bud and Ally's, the food trucks. We enjoy the Shops in Seaside and Watercolor and being able to ride bikes to these destinations. The only drawback is having to walk or ride to the beach. The pool and beach at Watercolor was so crowded we used the public beach access. The people in your office were very helpful and accessible!

Owner's Response: Hi Joanne, Thanks so much for the review! I'm so glad your family was able to enjoy Villa Menthe and the incredible outdoor space at the home! I could not agree with you more...Bud and Alley's is amazing and I love the food trucks in Seaside. More and more guests are using the public beach access points in the area as they are less crowded...there are so many great beaches in the area to use! I'm glad you were satisfied with your service from us here at 30A Cottages & Concierge...we appreciate your kind words. Please let us know when you are ready to come back to the beach and we would love to have you as our guest again! ~ The Staff at 30A Cottages & Concierge

Perfect all the way around!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at villa menthe!!! The house was even better in person than online which is hard to do! We had two families; 4 adults and 5 kids and it was more space than we even needed. Perfect all the way around. Highly recommend!

A gem in WaterColor

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying in WaterColor for years and this is our favorite house yet! The decor is so well done. When we were not at the beach, we spent most of our time on the back patio. What a treat to watch shooting stars from the hot tub. 30A Cottages was delightful to work with and they were attentive to our needs during our stay. A very enjoyable fall break for our family!

Villa Menthe was the perfect setting for our vacation with extended family. The home was absolutely gorgeous and exceeded my expectations. We enjoyed our time there so much that we are already planning another trip to the area with friends instead of family this time and will definitely be booking Villa Menthe!
