The smaller the size, the bigger the memories.Nestled in between the award-winning Watercolor Inn and the tallest viewing tower in the area, lies a special cottage that will wow you with luxury and blow your expectations away. This Watercolor Carriage House is a gloriously sprawling couple’s retreat, with more than 500 feet of living space for the most intimate Florida experience possible.
Once considered merely a guest house, we think it’s just too good to be considered just an afterthought to its former parent rental. You’ll see why because the same stunning attention to detail is applied here as in the main house, featuring gorgeous custom cabinetry, exquisite granite countertops, heart pine floors, and top-of-the-line appliances throughout the space. There’s plenty of lounging and eating areas too, and the king size bedroom and ¾ bath is just perfect for winding down at the end of the day with your special someone.
And what days you will have! Watercolor features activities for virtually every personality imaginable. Are you and yours the outdoor type? You’re just steps from multiple parks, lush flower gardens, miles of hiking and biking trails, and a boathouse overlooking Western Lake with canoeing, kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding. Maybe you just want a lazy day at the beach. Well, you’re just steps from the white sands and turquoise Gulf. Looking for a day or night on the town? Then head down to Watercolor center, with great shopping, delicious restaurants, and vibrant nightlife.
Luxurious living for cozy couples. It’s the Watercolor Carriage House. So good it deserved to stand alone.

Great location, darling little carriage retreat--clean and well appointed.
This property is full of light and everything we needed for a long weekend. Comfy bed and luxurious white linens and fluffy towels. The fully equipped kitchen had all the basics for our short stay!
An easy walk to the beach, pools and restaurants. So easy to rent bikes and see all of 30A.
There are only stairs to access this unit and no dishwasher or laundry facilities. Which was not as issue for us on a short trip.
This place is simply decorated and is represented well in the photographs. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to our friends!
Great accomodations! Just 4 blocks from the beach! Well appointed space and great for the 2 of us. I would suggest a space to hang your clothes as there is not a closet. Very comfortable bed, quiet and peaceful! Thanks for the use of your awesome carriage house. Highly recommend!
Perfect in every way!!!
The property location and amenities where great for me and my 5 yr. old son. The only complaint is that there needs to be a remote garage door opener. I understand the concern of it being lost but that is what deposits are for and these are responsible adults you are renting to so there should be no problem.
We have stayed in numerous locations along 30a but this was our first time at Watercolor and it couldn't have been more perfect. We were able to bike to a number of different locations for lunch and dinner and shopping when we needed time away from the water.
Just got back from a week in the carriage house with my girlfriend. Watercolor is over 500 acres and this carriage house is in a premium spot.I have been coming here for 6 years and typically stay with my extended family in a large house much farther away. You cannot beat this location! It is a block away from the wine bar, shops and just a very short walk to the beach. It is also a block away from the bike rental location and the stand-up paddle dock and pool. The cottage is in great shape. It is a very large one bedroom with a premium bed that was very comfy. Great A/C and cable TV in both the bedroom and living room. WiFi was flaky but that is typical for this community. Only minuses were no washing machine or dishwasher. For just two people we don't need the dishwasher but for a week's stay a small stackable washer/dryer would have been a big help. But the convenience of being so close to the beach overshadows the inconvenience of not having a washer/dryer. The carriage house comes very well equipped with kitchen dishes, coffee pot and ice maker/dispenser. I would rent here again. Good value given the proximity of being so close to the beach.
