Watercolor House Rental Photos and Description

Classic beach house, completely redone, professionally decorated

Laws Beach House Description

Our home is on Inkberry Street in the Lake District neighborhood. It fronts a three-acre, manicured neighborhood park with the national forest just beyond the park. It is a classic beach cottage built in 2008 with all modern conveniences, many beautiful interior finishes and all new furnishings. The front of the house has a large porch with wood columns and plenty of seating for family gatherings. When you enter the house, you’ll immediately notice the soaring two-story ceiling, giving the house an open, airy and beach house feeling. The floors are knotty pine throughout. The dining and living room are in the front part of the house. The dining room has seating for 10 and the living room has a remote controlled gas fireplace and flat screen television. Both the dining room and the living room have all new furniture.

The kitchen is built for the gourmet cook in mind, with a 48” Jenn Air six-burner gas range and double door Sub Zero fridge, an ice maker, new microwave and large kitchen island with seating. The kitchen is fully stocked, with spices and other dry goods, as well as all of the cleaning supplies you will need for your stay.

Across from the kitchen is the multi-functional room with a large pantry, laundry room with full sized washer and dryer, a bar with a sink and a desk area.

Down the hall, there are two bedrooms, both with private bathrooms. One of the bedrooms has a queen bed and the other has two twin beds. Both bedrooms are recently redecorated with new mattresses, fine linen and flat screen televisions. The main floor also has a powder bathroom.

Upstairs is the master bedroom suite with a king-size bed, a new mattress and fine bedding. The master bedroom also has a large private office, the perfect place to get away to if you must work while on vacation. There is a walk-in closet in the master bedroom and the master bathroom has 'his and her' vanities, a large oval soaking tub and oversized shower.

Behind the house is the two-story garage and carriage house. The garage/carriage house has a separate entrance and interior stairs that lead to the living space. The living space atop the garage includes a bedroom with a queen bed, writing desk and a small kitchen area with a fridge, sink and coffee maker. Adjacent to the bedroom, there is a finished, space with a door that has two, built-in twin beds, the perfect place for young children to sleep. The carriage also has a bathroom with a shower tub.

In total, our house sleeps 10 comfortably with the following bed configuration: king size bed in the master bedroom; queen size bed in guest room number one on the main floor; two twin beds in guest room number two on the main floor; queen size bed in the carriage house; and two twin beds in the carriage house.

The house is very close to the beach, just a short 10 minute walk or a five minute bike ride. Visitors access the beach through the WaterColor Beach Club. The closest pool is just behind the house.

About Sandy Laws

We live in colorful Colorado, where we enjoy the beauty of the mountains year round. We are empty nesters and we love spending our time with family and friends and traveling to new places. Check out our Vail home too, VRBO listing #787995.

Sandy Laws purchased this house in 2013

Why Sandy Laws chose Beaches of South Walton

We have been to WaterColor many times and decided the time was right to buy a beach house. We love the area and the beaches are amazing. We picked this area because the WaterColor community is so well thought out, with everything within distance of a bike ride. We love walking the trails, riding our bikes, going to the beaches and hanging out at Bud & Alley's to watch the sunset. The people here are great, displaying real Southern hospitality! We know you'll love your time on the Emerald Coast

What makes this house unique

We love this house because it's the classic beach cottage, with a great floor plan. It works very well for a large family, or a couple of families, or a girls trip or guys trip. The location is close to everything that WaterColor has to offer, yet its away from the crowds on Western Lake Drive. It is perfectly located and a short walk or ride to the beach, yet it doesn't have a lot of traffic. And it is right next to the national forest.

The house was perfect. Very clean and in order. It is very easy to communicate with the owners who are very accommodating. Close proximity to community pool. Easy bike ride to other community pools, beach and Seaside square. We loved staying in this house!

Great house for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

As former homeowners in Watercolor we are very knowledgeable about the community and the area and were very particular about the house we wanted to rent for our family vacation. This is a GREAT house for a Watercolor vacation for many reasons: First, it is spacious and laid out well to accommodate several family members of all ages. For example, the carriage house was perfect for our son and his girlfriend who did not want to be disturbed in the morning by our young grandchildren staying in the main house. Second, the location is outstanding. It is a very quiet area (as opposed to Phases one and two) and It is a ~150 yard walk to the 'frog pool, and a short ride or walk to the beach. Since the house is located near the bridge over the lake, it is actually a shorter distance to the beach than a house in phase two (where we owned our home) would be. Third, most of the basic kitchen and bathroom supplies (tissues, paper towels, spices, etc.) one needs are included in the rental which makes things much easier (and less expensive) on the day you arrive. Finally, the house was very clean and in excellent shape when we arrived

and the owners are very easy to work with during the rental process. All in all, a great choice for your vacation....we would definitely rent this house again on our next trip to Watercolor!

Absolute Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Let me begin by saying that our family trip to Watercolor/Seaside Florida was one of the best trips ever! The house that we had the privilege to rent was immaculate, well maintained, cozy and beautiful. It was definitely a dream house! It had everything we wanted for our family vacation….the accommodations were perfect starting with the location relative to the beach, the community area pools and Watercolor resort pool! The beaches of Seaside are amazing and the water is crystal clear. The great thing about this house is that it provides you with a relaxed and calming vacation if you desire and is also just a short bike ride from plenty of local entertainment and great dining establishments. The owners were so amazing! They also went out of their way to make sure that we had a great vacation by proving all the information necessary about the house and how to navigate Seaside, information about local restaurants, entertainment, and activities. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a fun-filled and relaxing vacation. We were sad to leave! We will definitely be returning in the future and can't wait to go back! I would recommend Red Bar, Hurricane's Oyster Bar, Angelina's Italian restaurant and the Donut Hut (morning doughnuts) for great food!

The accommodations were outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Seaside/Watercolor every year for the past 12 years and I was very impressed with this house. Not only were the accommodations perfect but there were extras in the house that we don't normally get when renting. We usually have to purchase cleaning and pantry supplies but this house came with everything. Absolutely turnkey!

Perfect Florida Fun

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Laws beautiful watercolor home over the Holidays with our boys! We have been going to this beach for 20+ years. The home was very clean, and beautifully decorated. This home came well equipped with everything you could want for cooking , entertaining etc.... The layout was perfect for our family of 3 boys, everyone had their own space. The location was great and easy access to all things we enjoy doing. Sandra was very helpful and easy to work with for any questions we had or anything we needed. I highly recommend this home as we will be coming back soon.
