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.

Beautiful home, great location!!
We absolutely loved our stay! The house is beautiful with great amenities, and the location is awesome! We rode the bikes to the beach every day! The bike ride through Watercolor was so peaceful and fun! We will definitely be back!!
Wonderful stay in a beautiful house!
We’ve stayed in more than 15 watercolor rentals over the last 10 years and this place is the cleanest and sharpest we’ve ever experienced. The pictures (which are beautiful) dont fully exhibit the experience. The owners take great care to deliver a wonderful experience to perfection. Many places have missing or hand-me-down amenities (pots, pans, small appliances) but these are all complete and top shelf.
Thank you for being such lovely guests and for writing such a lovely review! We hope to see you back next year!
Such a cute house!!!
We just had a great stay in the little beach house! We had 2 families and everyone had plenty of room. One bunk room for the teenage boys, and one for the girls! The fun bonus is the awesome ice maker on the porch!! Thanks for sharing your home with us!
