About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 15). Walk to the Beach!

Very large private home with spacious porches overlooking the large, private pool and decks. The attic kid's room is incredible and even has Gulf and Lake views! While inside, enjoy your favorite movies on the 42' flat screen TV in the living room and check your email on the computer with internet access. This house is one of the closest in Watercolor to the beach and the beach club pool.

There are 6 bedrooms and 6.5 baths: Master Bedroom with King bed and private bath, 2nd Master Bedroom with King Bed and private bath, 1 Queen with private bath, 1 Queen with private bath, 1 Bunk with trundle, Kid's Attic has 2 Twin and a Full Bed. There is also a pull out couch on the first level.

On the 1st floor there are 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, the Den, a fabulous front porch and a back deck that leads to the private heated swimming pool with an outside .5 bath. On the 2nd floor is the Master Bedroom, 2 bathrooms, Kitchen, Dining and Living Room and a back deck that overlooks the pool. The 3rd floor is the Kid's attic (gameroom), there are 2 twin beds, a full size bed and a foosball table.

Watercolor is one of two planned communities located along scenic Highway 30-A along Florida’s north Gulf coast. There are several unique features to Watercolor, including Western Lake, a rare, 220-acre coastal dune lake that is bordered by coastal pine forests. There are three restaurants located on the lake, as well as canoe and kayak rentals and sailing excursions, a boathouse, and a large outdoor amphitheater for concerts and festivals. Cerulean Park links the lake to the Gulf, and is one of Watercolor’s central gathering places. An extensive woodland trail system for hiking and biking meanders through the community of Watercolor, and nearby state parks offer different perspectives of the coastal dune lakes, sand pine scrub, longleaf pine flatwoods, cypress ponds and wetlands.

The Town Center in Watercolor has a collection of retail shops and markets. The neighboring towns of the “Beaches of South Walton,” hold special events throughout the year, such as jazz concerts, beach parties and art shows. The town of Seaside holds a Red Wine Festival in the winter, and DeFuniak Springs’ “Christmas Tour of Homes,” is well worth the trip.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect. There were 14 of us for part of the time and 12 for most of the time. The house was perfect--every bit as attractive as advertised. The adults as well as the grandchildren ages 8 to 16 loved the experience--proximity to beach, private pool and overall amenities in the house. The one observation is that 1 roll of paper towels and 2 rolls of toilet paper per bathroom are woefully inadequate for a week's stay for 14 occupants. There was only 1 small bar of soap in each bathroom--presumably it was supposed to be enough for use in the shower and at the lavatory. Also, when we arrived there were no kitchen garbage bags other than the 2 in the wastebaskets and no dishrags and tea towels in the kitchen. A call to the property manager resulted in prompt delivery of a box of garbage bags and a couple of tea towels. (I discovered that there were a couple in the laundry room .) I would rent this house again, but, considering the cost of renting, I don't think it is too much to ask for more than 1 roll of paper towels and more t.p. and bar soap--a small expense for the owner and a convenience for the renter.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect for families. It has a long staircase in the center of the home which would not work well for disabled, elderly or individuals with knee problems. Otherwise the home is ideal and nicely located.

Christmas vacation

House was beautiful, comfortable and in a GREAT location within walking distance of everything. We had 10 people (3 generations) and everyone had plenty of shared and private space. Highly recommend this property.

This lovely vacation home is beautifully decorated, comfortable and well maintained. It's perfect for large family gatherings. We enjoyed its convenient location to the beach and Town Center. We would highly recommend renting this home and look forward to returning again in the very near future.

Beautiful Beach Home w/Lots of Amenities

  • 5 of 5

We have been to the Watercolor area several times and this is by far our favorite home! The decor is beautiful, the layout is ideal for big groups and you couldn't ask for a better location. It's a short walk or bike ride to restaurants, shopping and the beach. The bedrooms are large and each one has it's own bath. The main level kitchen/dining room/living room is an open floor plan and is ideal for entertaining. Everything was perfectly in order for our arrival. We will absolutely stay here again!

With our group of 9 adults and 4 children the house was wonderful!! Had all the amenities we needed....great location, wonderful pool and lots of room for all of us to spread out and relax. I only wish our weather had been better, but there was lots of rain this summer at the beach. We liked our vacation and our home so well we booked it again!!!

Thanks for beginning the memories for our family at Watercolor!
