About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

This beautiful home has brought fantastic vacation memories for years to everyone who has stayed here and now it's been updated and refreshed including a new large deck with trellis along the entire back of the house to take full advantage of the nature preserve that the home backs up to. Multiple outdoor living areas comfortably accommodate friends and family.

This tastefully decorated three bedroom, three bath oasis is located in the Watercolor Camp District. It is truly one of the best locations in Watercolor where you will be just around the corner from the Tennis Center, Publix grocery store and Camp Watercolor, plus a short walk to Seaside or the beach.

As you enter your vacation paradise you find yourself in the warmth of your living area, tastefully decorated and inviting, with ample seating, rich warm textures and a spacious, open floor plan. Windows abound so you'll take in the serenity of this wooded beauty and enjoy the Florida sunshine. Your formal dining area comfortably seats 6 at the table and 4 at the breakfast bar so that everyone can enjoy meals together. The expansive, open kitchen features upgrades like granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, under cabinet lighting and tile back splashes. Your over-sized laundry room and half bath finish off the family conveniences of your first level.

Your Master Bedroom with King bed features a HUGE wall mounted flat screen TV, rich wood flooring, and a private en suite Master Bath. As you step into your bath area you're immediately drawn to the oval garden tub set against the backdrop of nature with large picture windows. This elegant space also features granite top double vanities, glass walk in shower, separate water closet and plenty of storage.

The first Guest Bedroom upstairs has a private bath with tub shower combination and custom bunk beds that comfortably sleep 4. We have also installed a new 26' flat screen TV with DVD/VCR and an Xbox with various video games. Your children will LOVE it!!!

The second Guest Bedroom, located on the first floor, has a Queen bed and also features access to the private bath with tub shower combination. It's the perfect location for a mother-in-law suite giving added privacy and convenience.

The screened porch is an amazing area to sit and relax. The porch leads to the new and very spacious deck with an outdoor dinning area and table for eight. The deck opens onto conservation forest area. YOU CAN HEAR THE OCEAN IN THE MORNING AND AT NIGHT!!! The home fronts on a beautifully maintained park which is perfect for children to run around and play while you sit on the front porch and watch. One side of the park is wooded and one side is grass. It's beautiful!

Guests of our home enjoy all of the following exclusive resort amenities: Admission to the private Beach Club Pool and Grill overlooking the Gulf, complete with showers and changing rooms, & towel service. One of the best locations in Watercolor! Short walk to Seaside Town Center.


Park your car and enjoy close proximity to the Beach, Western Lake, Four pools, (two are heated), nature lessons, arts, crafts, Castle/Fort Playground, an onsite Publix full sized grocery store, Watercolor's stores and restaurants (great sandwiches, pizza, and ice cream), elegant Fish Out of Water Restaurant and Sushi Bar (World class fine dining overlooking the beautiful Gulf), Beach Club Bar and Grill (lunch or drinks while you enjoy the pool and beach), and steps to the village of Seaside (shopping, dinning, outdoor movies and plays, and entertainment).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just returned from our stay at your beautiful in Watercolor and found everything we needed. We has a wonderful time as you will be able to read from the comments left by my daughter, Amy, in the Love journal. The grandkids, Lydia(5), and Lillian(2)actually cried when they had to leave. Lydia fell in love with the bunk beds and is now asking for one in her bedroom. We really enjoyed the community and it felt so much like being in our won home and neighborhood. Thanks again for making it so comfortable and relaxing.

July Vacatio

  • 4 of 5

This house is wonderful! Decorated beautifully and very comfortable. We have no complaints about the house at all! What you need to know is that the bikes, while at the property are not included in the cost of the house. They are locked and you have to pay to use for the week. The ammeities passes are nice but you must reserve your beach chairs in advance as they were sold out when we arrived. The property management company told us that we could just rent the chairs the morning we arrived. Not at all the case. We ended up on a very crowded public beach which was not convenient to to the Watercolor Inn. Sadly, we did not use Watercolor Inn, which is why you have the amenities pass in the first place and no doubt included in the price of the home. You may ride your bikes to the beach, but it isn't as close as they would like you to think and if you are taking rafts etc you either have to drive or rent a golf cart which once again were sold out. Watercolor only allows one company to rent golf carts and we were told we should have reserved at least 6 weeks in advance. Our biggest frustration was not knowing these things in advance. You pay a pretty penny to rent this house which is great, but you really need to know the whole story. It isn't close to the beach and you need to plan accordingly. A lot of money for quite a hassle.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your feedback. We're so happy you liked the home and it met all your criteria. Since we don't handle those types of amenities it's hard for us to know when something is available or will be sold out, but we thank you for letting us know your experience and we will update our reservations team with the information. When it's time for you to return give us a call and we'll offer you a return guest discount and will help you find something closer to the Gulf.

Our family rented this home for our family wedding at Watercolor and it was perfect for us. Located conveniently close to everything we needed yet seemed so quiet and private. What a perfect place!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this home. It had plenty of room and looked great. It was a two minute bike ride to the Camp Watercolor pool, which was perfect for us! Plus it was a short ride to Publix for our grocery shopping. We've been vacationing in the area for years and this was definitely one of our favorite houses. The rental company was easy to work with and very friendly.

A perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Watercolor. The house is in a great location:A short bike ride to the beach, seaside and watercolor shops and eateries, several pools and the publix grocery store. We loved biking everywhere. The beaches are breathtaking and the food trucks and restaurants were perfect for our tween boys. This really is the perfect spot for a family vacation.. Safe, fun, friendly and beautiful. Kids can be safely independent. The house was just the right size for us and met all our needs. Swantree 30a was very helpful and attentive. We would certainly return.

Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

We visited in early June, and had the best time. We loved the home. It's beautifully updated, and the layout works well for extended families with a nice bedroom downstairs for those not wishing to climb them as often. We rode bikes, played in the field across the street, swam, met new friends, and enjoyed all Watercolor has to offer. We will be back next year!
