Beautiful 30A WaterColor House for Rent with Designer Furnishings

30A Escapes presents... 860 Western Lake

This WaterColor home is truly exquisite!

With 4,000 sq ft of interior living space and over 1,000 sq ft of out door living space, it is sure to surpass any expectations.

Upon entering the home you will be greeted by an open and inviting living area decorated with designer furnishings in creams, light blues, and natural wood tones. The living room has a flat screen TV, DVD, and stereo with CD player. Now on to the gourmet kitchen. The Wolf gas range, Keurig coffee maker, and other commercial appliances make this the perfect place to get your coffee before heading to the beach or to cook an `after the beach feast`. With dining room seating for 6 and 4 bar stools, there is plenty of room to host the family.

The first of the master bedrooms is on the first floor. It has a King 4 poster bed with plush linens, flat screen TV, and a connecting bath with double vanity and a tiled shower.

The second master bedroom is on the second floor. A King bed with designer linens is in this room. It has a flat screen TV, private access to the fully furnished balcony, and a connecting bath with a double vanity and shower.

Also on the second floor is a bedroom with two Twin beds. This room is decorated with a nautical beach buggy theme. Fun for the singles in the group or the kiddos. This room also has access to the balcony and a flat screen TV. Just down the hall is the full bathroom with single vanity and a bath tub and shower combo.

The Queen bedroom on the second floor provides sleeping for two. It has a flat screen TV and access to the balcony.

In addition to the bedrooms on the second floor, you will find a beautifully decorated extra den with sofa sleeper, flat screen TV, wet bar and access to a private balcony. The wet bar has a ice maker, fridge, and sink.

When you walk through the extra den, there is another bedroom with two queen beds. This bedroom has a flat screen TV and a connecting bath with a single vanity and tiled shower.

The balconies and porches at this home are EXQUISITE!! The first floor porch has a flat screen TV, wood burning fire place, and plenty of seating for dining and entertaining outdoors. The second floor balcony has swinging beds and a table made from a surf board. There is also a grilling area in the courtyard with plenty of seating and a gas grill.

On the side of the house is an outdoor shower so that you can wash away the evidence of a perfect day at the beach at WaterColor!

This home is a short stroll to the beach club, beach access, restaurants, shops, tennis courts and pools.

About Jessica Kriser

There are many vacation rental companies for you to choose from. Some are big, some are small. Some have an enormous inventory, and some are local. So what makes us different? Two people. One dream. And not just any dream. A dream to live at the beach and create something they can build and care for. Caring, the most important thing. Because many companies can say they have great service. But not many can say they care the way two people with a dream can. Jim & Camille Dixon began investing and renting their personal 30A homes in 2004. Seven years later they realized their deep passion for the boutique vacation rental industry. Jim & Camille moved their family of four to 30A in 2011 to open 30A Escapes. They started the company with only 2 Clients. Today 30A Escapes is prominently known as the Top high end management firm on 30A. 30A Escapes wants to assure you that we will care for your needs, your wants, and everything in between. We will care for you because we all have dreams.

Great family beach trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous trip to Watercolor and it was made more so by the house. It is very spacious, very well maintained, beautifully decorated and very clean. We had plenty of space to spread out and really enjoyed the two porches as well. The location right behind Seaside was super convenient and we biked everywhere. It was a super easy bike ride to the beach and all of the pools were easy to get to. I highly recommend this house!

Summer heat prevented use of sunroom. Otherwise, well equipped kitchen, wonderful mattresses for good night sleeping.

Gorgeous, well appointed, and walking distance to everywhere you want to go!

  • 5 of 5

My two teenagers and I (along with friends) enjoyed every minute of staying in this gorgeous, yet comfortable home. And on the rainy week we stayed there, that was a good thing! The home is set up with five bedrooms: two master bedrooms, a twin bedroom and a full bedroom off the upstairs porch, and a room with two full/queen beds as well -- perfect for multiple families with children. We could walk (splash) in 3 minutes to the center of Seaside and its great restaurant choices, drive or bike to Publix easily, and get to the marina for paddleboarding in minutes. The home included bikes, which was convenient and we did not have to worry about rental.

The home is beautifully built and decorated, has ample space for everyone, and the kitchen is well-supplied for those who like to cook. The porches were amazing and became our primary living spaces, with fireplaces and wireless speakers throughout. There is a main living room as well as an upstairs tv lounge, so everyone was entertained without feeling cramped.

We will definitely rent this home again -- it has everything, and the owners are a pleasure to work with!
