Vacations at Watercolor reflect simpler times – taking bike rides, building sand castles, eating meals together, and enjoying quality family time. Our home (located in the heart of Watercolor) was designed to reflect these times. Built in vintage style for the health conscious, this fabulous open design is perfect for family getaways and just minutes away from the Town Center, Seaside, the Frog pool, the Boat House, and, of course, the Gulf. A spectacular kitchen, designed by a Le Cordon Blue-trained chef, with pink Northstar retro appliances and a huge, strikingly white island, form the heart of the home. The kitchen flows seamlessly into the dining area with a French Farm House table and dreamy white Great Room with flat screen TV/DVD. A screened porch just off the Great Room makes a great place for breakfast in the morning or drinks in the evening as you watch your neighbors pedal by. Fabulous art by several local artists highlighting local color is displayed throughout. For cool evenings in the winter, enjoy the warmth and ambiance of the fireplace. The full laundry room is on the first floor as is a powder room. There are two master bedrooms, both with king-sized beds. The bedding and the mattresses were specially chosen for nights of sweet dreams. The master on the first floor features Lilly Pulitzer curtains and a large built-in desk. The chandelier-lighted master bath has a spacious walk-in shower, a distinctive claw foot tub, and a double vanity. The screened-in porch off this bedroom overlooks a park and trail and is perfect to enjoy a private cup of coffee in the morning or cocktail in the evening. The upstairs has three bedrooms (including the second master). Two of these have custom-built bunk beds. The first sleeps three (with trundle), has a built-in desk and vintage theater chairs. The second, right next door, sleeps five (with trundle). All bedrooms feature flat-screen TVs, and this one also has a DVD player, so the kids can gather here for movie night if the parents are socializing downstairs. The kids’ bath has a walk-in shower and whimsical farm-style sink. Just down the hall is the second master with a second bath. Access to a huge screened porch is available both through this bedroom and from the hallway. For the health conscious or allergy sufferer, the entire home features Guardian Air to purify the HVAC, filtered water (a Culligan system), with an additional spa filter in the kitchen, hardwood floors and tile (in the baths), and low or no-VOC paint. In addition to these features, this home offers an outdoor shower to wash off the sugar sand after a fun-filled day at the world’s most beautiful beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed staying at your house in Watercolor in December. We took advantage of being outdoors enjoying rocking on the porch, biking, walking the trails, the beach and around Seaside. The green areas next to the property were great for the kids to run around in and for us to sit and read. The neighborhood is so quiet and tranquil. In the evenings we had fun playing games in the large common area. We wanted to inquire about availability in July and trying to arrange a trip with another family.

Wonderful stay for fall break!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay over fall break this past weekend! Beautifully decorated home with the most charming decor. We vacationed with another family and the kids loved the bunk rooms and the pink details in the kitchen! The location is perfect for biking to the beach, or walking to the frog pool for a late afternoon swim. We will definitely be back!

great place with attention to every detail!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay here. Been to several houses in Watercolor over the years_ most good, some not so good _ but none were as meticulously organized, managed and thoughtfully planned out as this one. Vicky thought of everything and it made our stay effortless. Excellent place for your family vacation in Watercolor. Definitely on our list for the future.

Perfect beach house!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying in this beach house! It is new and very clean and well maintained and beautifully decorated in coastal colors and fabrics, and has great space for family and friends to both enjoy one another's company and have privacy. We decided to fly this vacation, so did not have a car, and we were able to ride our bikes easily to the beach club, Boat House, pools, tennis, and Seaside for restaurants and really enjoyed the perfect location of the house and the experience of being without a car. The owner was very friendly and responsive to all of our requests. We would definitely recommend this beach house to our friends and would love to return next summer!

The best beach house in Water Color!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing beach house! This house is so unique and comfortable. The decor is vintage and refreshing. I love the kitchen with the pink appliances and the cool master bathroom. The bedrooms in the house are so spacious. Kids love the bunk beds and the adults love the two master bedrooms. The house is in a great location. You can easily bike to the beach or to the square. Every little detail is thought of from the tasty ice maker on the porch to the quality of sheets. This is a great house for families or a girl's trip. Water Color is a great destination to get away and relax. The shops and restaurants are unique and fun. I highly recommend this property and definitely will go back. The owners are the nicest people and willing to assist in any manner. You will definitely remember your trip and have great memories if you rent "The Little Beach House"!
