About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Experience a stay at one of the most distinctive beach homes in Watercolor. This iconic four story French blue and white house is located in the Park District of the renowned WaterColor Beach Community, voted in the Top Ten Resorts by Travel & Leisure Magazine.

In less than five minutes guests can walk to The Beach Club Pool, just steps from the beautiful white sand beaches. In addition, it is minutes from the Bait House, which offers dining, fishing, biking and swimming with a spectacular backdrop of Western Lake. Enjoy tennis, walking, kayaking, jogging trails, and bicycling in one of the most welcoming communities in Florida.

Our home was built with family gatherings in mind. Any of the porches of our home will afford you an unobstructed view of the spectacular Gulf sunsets each night, although it is best enjoyed from the fourth story tower. It includes two master bedrooms and numerous gathering spots to congregate, with a total of five bedrooms and five and a half baths in the main house. All baths were custom designed by Waterworks Tile, and each relates uniquely to the ocean and beach colors we love.

The main level includes a large open living room that extends into the dining room and professional kitchen. Custom cabinetry in both the kitchen and living room were crafted by a premier local cabinetmaker, and add both color and warmth. Seating is plentiful to encourage family time.

Also on the Main Level is a master bedroom with king bed and full bath, which connect to the fully enclosed and private outdoor shower. A half bath connects to the beach entry area and the laundry room to allow beach goers direct access. A deep front porch enjoys an unobstructed view of Western Lake, and there is a large enclosed dining area within a screened porch as well.

The Second Level contains another master bedroom with full bath. The main hallway as well as the master opens onto a second front porch. There is also a large fully enclosed sleeping porch with double swing bed that lends itself to watching the stars as you fall asleep. The reading area has custom Mahogany library shelves with an extensive collection of beach reads. Two queen bedrooms with full baths complete this level.

The Third Level has custom bunks with trundle bed to accommodate 3, as well as a full bath. There is also a family room on this level with TV and sleeper sofa. Windows on three sides take in views of Western Lake, WaterColor and Seaside rooftops, and the Gulf.

Finally the Fourth Level is a large open porch with panoramic views of the Gulf and all surrounding skyline. At sunrise, sunset, or anytime in between, the tower is truly a spectacular vantage point, and one of the highest in the community.

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything one would want for a family vacation. It is spacious, and the floor plan provides privacy for everyone. It is beautifully decorated, in excellent condition and within easy walking distance from the beach. The caretaker is accessible and extremely helpful. We can't wait to return to this gem at Watercolor!

What a great week for my family! The house is beautiful and clean. Great location....close to the beach and pools. The bikes were a great bonus. It was good knowing that there was a caretaker available to us if needed, but everything was in such great order that it was not necessary to use him. The owners were great to work with and eager to answer questions. We are already thinking about next year!

Super location to beaches and restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of adults, teenagers and children had a wonderful time exploring the area especially because of the great access the house gave us to the beach, restaurants and other amenities. The bikes included with the house and the grill were put to use daily. When one of the bikes developed a flat, the caretaker came out that afternoon. The time went so quickly.

One week wasn't long enough!!

  • 5 of 5

We had two families sharing this home, and it worked out perfectly. The location is fantastic, close proximity to the beach, pools, trails, lake, etc. We had a couple of minor issues, and Mike was immediately on it. I would absolutely recommend this home, and plan to stay again with my family.

Watercolor family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our growing family thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful home in Watercolor. With 8 adults and a 2 yr old, everyone had more than enough space, including bedrooms and bathrooms to feel comfortable. The roomy 2 master suites on different floors felt private, the 2 queen rooms were simple yet ample and the third floor bunk beds/trundle, tv room, mini refrig and microwave were enjoyed as well.

Stealing a naps on the 3rd floor porch bed swing was magical! The 4th floor porch was ideal for late nite quiet time, relaxing, watching sunsets or the far away lightening storms.

The house had all the cookware we needed to make eating in a simple and enjoyable event for the 2 nights we bought seafood from a local market to grill at home.

Just about everything from the beach to shopping to restaurants is only a 5-10 min walk, and the 6 bicycles provided made leaving the car at home, an easy choice. We even used the Shipt app to have our groceries delivered to the house from Publix so that we could enjoy as much beach time as possible.

Any minor issues that arose were promptly addressed by the house manager, and all communications with the homeowners prior to our arrival were handled thoroughly and enthusiastically.

We can't wait to return next year!

Very comfortable and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home in the Park district- about 3 blocks from the beach. It is well-decorated, comfortable, and quiet. We enjoyed watching the 4th of July fireworks and all the sunsets from the 4th floor tower. The 6 bikes were thoroughly used and appreciated! The owners were very attentive and accommodating.
