About Leah Updyke

We reside in Dallas, TX and have been visiting the Gulf Coast since our children were babies! Several years ago we discovered Highway 30A and the welcoming communities of Watercolor and Seaside. We knew this area had to become our second home and in 2013 we found High Tide, the perfect fit for our family!

Leah Updyke purchased this house in 2013

Why Leah Updyke chose Watercolor

WaterColor Inn and Resort and the charming cottages within this planned development along with the adjacent Community of Seaside and others on Hwy 30A are quaint beachside communities offering an alternative to the more commercial areas of Destin and Panama City Beach. Bikes are the preferred mode of transportation and the cottages with large front porches transcend to a quieter and more slow-paced, peaceful time. The bonus is that the emerald waters and white sand beaches and all the amenities of WaterColor are a short bike ride away. Amenities such as access to the 5 WaterColor pools including the Beach Club pool that overlooks the ocean with private beach access, tennis, bike and nature trails, yolo boarding on Western Lake (kayaks & canoes must be rented independently of the BoatHouse at WaterColor), shopping, wine bars and dining from food trucks to, beachfront eateries to four star restaurants. WaterColor has so much to offer and we feel blessed to be a part of the community.

What makes this house unique

From the front porch with the sound system and the 2 wonderful swings overlooking a neighborhood park to the enclosed rear porch offering a unique entertainment area and wonderful gathering spot for friends and family we immediately felt like this was home!

Awesome home! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great and very comfortable and perfectly located in Watercolor. There was more than enough space for 4 adults and 3 kids, especially with the unique screened porch area. The owner was very helpful and made sure that we had everything we needed along the way.

Great Week

  • 5 of 5

We have been to 30A several times now. Last December while in the area we scouted our some VRBO homes- and chose this one. We were there for the week of July 4th. All of the communication beforehand was timely and very helpful. We had 2 adults and 6 teens staying in the house and there was plenty of room. Great supplies in the kitchen. And great beach extras- chairs, rafts, buckets, etc.. The recommended connection bikes was great as well- Beach Dogs was very helpful. We loved being so close to Publix and an easy bike ride to the beach, Seaside, and Watercolor.
