About Peter Howard

My wife, children and I visited Seaside and Watercolor for years and bought this home as it most comfortably sleeps our large family in terms of bedrooms and private baths. We care about details and use it as a personal home for a majority of the year.

Peter Howard purchased this house in 2007

Why Peter Howard chose South Walton

We love Watercolor and Seaside and this home is centrally located next to Camp Watercolor, which has the only swimming pool which heated and open late until 10:00 p.m., play ground and play fields including the large soccer and volley ball field and new basketball court. The beaches and water activities at Watercolor are among the nicest in the nation.

What makes this house unique

6 bedroom suits, sleeping 15-16, all with baths and flat screen TVS next to the Camp Watercolor family recreation facilities and swimming pool. Soon this will be an even greater experience as Watercolor is going to build a new zero entry pool with Waterslide as the amenity is enhanced for the next decade!

We have spent unforgettable family vacations in this home on numerous occasions and can honestly say the experience only gets better each time. The owners are warm, giving and exceedingly professional in their dealings. We have continually found the house in excellent condition. Every detail is anticipated, the decor is inviting, elegant and relaxing. The location ideal for families, and the layout lends itself perfectly to both friends and family. I honestly cannot recommend this home enough. My only hesitation in posting such an honest and complimentary review, is that it will no longer be free for us to vacation in the future! A real TEN.

We had such a magical week at this amazing house. The pictures do not do this beautiful home justice. The decor and finishings are perfectly done. The house was clean and very well maintained. The owner is easy to work with, kind and accommodating. There was plenty of space for our family of five, we could have easily fit two more families. Our children 8, 5, and 3 loved the bunk rooms and the close proximity to the Camp Creek pool and playground- it's literally almost right next door. We loved staying in Watercolor- the pools, easy access to the beach, shops and Seaside make it the perfect place to stay! Having the house provided golf cart was a HUGE bonus as it made our trip so easy with the kids. We had so much fun cruising around and taking it to the beach, 4 different pools, and to dinner or ice cream in Seaside. I can't say enough about this home, it was such a special week, one we will never forget and we are already planning our next trip back!

Wonderful Property!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing property in Watercolor! Visited for a mother/daughter trip and the house accommodated our large party so well! The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated with great attention to detail. Especially loved the great room/kitchen/dining space and the carriage house was equally charming! The owner was so helpful and responsive to requests. Would definitely book this house again for a large group!

Wonderful Family Home, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this home last October for a week. We have two young kids and took our nanny. This was our first experience with VBRO & I was very impressed how easy it was. The house exceeded our expectations. They had lots of extra stuff for our kids. There were indoor kids toys, a toddler bed, a booster seat, pool and beach toys & some beach chairs. All things we did not have to pack or buy! The house was clean & the kitchen had everything we needed and then some. The location was perfect. We were across the camp water pool which is heated, and a great playground for our kids to burn off some energy. The owner, was great & easy to deal with! We had one small issue with the golf cart and the owner was ready to take care of the situation within minutes. We have stayed in Rosemary as well and have decided we will be coming back to Watercolor 2015!

Simply Sea -- Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at Simply Sea vacation home in Watercolor, FL. The owners were very responsive to all questions, very helpful with planning details, and very accommodating. Upon our arrival, the house was very clean and so welcoming! It was very spacious and had plenty of seating in living and dining area for family to gather. Spent a lot of time at the beautiful banquette area eating and playing games! Plenty of beds and loved that there was a bathroom in each room! Kitchen was spacious and well equipped. Absolutely loved the home décor - casual elegant style! House had so many wonderful details, warmth, and charm!

Great location in Camp District. Very close to Camp Watercolor pool so nice to be able to walk there. Quick bike ride to the beach pool and Watercolor stores. Beautiful white sand beach! Enjoyed shopping and dining in Seaside which was right "next door". Watercolor was such a quaint area - fun to ride bikes and play tennis!

Photos and description very accurate.

Can't say enough good things about this home. Best vacation rental home we have ever stayed at! Would definitely recommend this property!

A Very Relaxing and Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything it was said to be. The pictures don't even do it justice! Upon arriving the owners gave us a very warm and inviting welcome. There are many personal touches in this house that make it feel warm and homey. Yet, the decor is simple enough giving you a very free and easy feeling. And everything smelled fresh and clean. All the beds were extremely comfortable and the bathrooms are amazing.

The location in Watercolor is perfect; it's so close to the Kids Club and the tennis courts, but it's also very quiet. The beach front is an easy bike ride and the passes to the Beach Club are a very nice amenity. Our family enjoyed bike riding on the trails as well as all over Watercolor and Seaside. Everything was convenient.

The Carriage House is cozy and very nicely decorated as well. It has quite a bit of privacy from the main house and is a nice private bungalow for a couple or a single person.

Our stay at this house was one that our family will remember for a long time and we look forward to returning again for future beach vacations. I can't think of anything I would change.

This was one of our all time favorite vacations!
