Nestled in the WaterColor neighborhood about half a mile from the beach, this home is in a wonderful spot for exploring the neighborhoods many amenities - tennis courts, a shared pool, a fitness center, and a beach club are close by!

This house sets the tone for your relaxing stay with a traditional porch with a bench swing and Adirondack chairs waiting to welcome you. Hardwood floors and crafted accents create a casual but elegant ambiance in the main living area. Lounge on the white couch while you surf the cable channels, or make some popcorn for a movie night with a DVD everyone will love.

Let the private washer/dryer take care of the laundry while you step out onto the covered patio and enjoy a chilly glass of lemonade while the kids play in the yard. Connect to the WiFi to find a recipe or post photos on social media, and then head back into the comfort of the central A/C.

In the kitchen, you'll find stainless steel appliances, granite counters, and room for a culinary assistant or two to help put dinner on the table. After dinner enjoy a quiet moment with your special someone on the porch swing and watch the day fade away.

In the first-floor master bedroom, you'll find a king-size bed, en suite, and flatscreen TV. Upstairs in the three guest bedrooms, you'll find plenty of storage space, two queen-size beds, and three twin-size beds. If you need more sleeping space there is a soafbed available as well.

Take a day to relax on the sun-soaked beach while the waves crash at your feet. Catch up with a good book while the kids fly a kite, or get out on the waves for some exercise with a standup paddleboard. Spend a day exploring WaterColor's Town Center with storefronts and wine bars. There are several equipment rental services like the Bike Barn and the BoatHouse. Explore the neighborhood trails, docks, parks, and garden spaces, or check out the schedule for the Marina Park/Amphitheatre, which has a pool as well as a stage for film, plays, and music.

Get the crew together for a fun-filled day at Grayton Beach State Park. Rent a kayak or a canoe to paddle out into the crystal blue waters and explore the area, or hike through the trails to catch a glimpse of local wildlife and the perfect picnic spot. Head back home for a refreshing dip in the shared pool and float the day away.

The home was great
Cindy C. Sep 2021
The Watercolor house was definitely a beauty! The Vacasa administration team was incredible. We called on two different occasions and got immediate response. The front door locks automatically, watch out! While unloading the car, I left my phone in the house with the code. They got us back in quickly. There were 2 coffee makers but no pots. The team brought a new one over the next day. The house itself was quiet and secluded yet in a prime location, convenient to the grocery store and restaurants. It was so nice to have the pool passes and access to The Beach Club. The missing star: The house could use a little updating and could have been a little cleaner - we had something that didn't belong to us appear in the bed... probably fell out of a blanket from the closet - also the front and back porches need a scrubbing - cobwebs, dirt, dust... Oh, and no beach towels - Watercolor no longer offers towel service but they will sell them to you for around $40. Next time I will remember to bring my own. I would most definitely stay here again. Thank you!
Manager response:
We have sent your feedback to the local staff for further review. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement and will work diligently with the homeowner to make any updates and repairs. We look forward to hosting you for your next vacation!

Had a Great stay.
Courtney D. Jun 2021
It was great!
Daniela W. May 2021
The place was pretty but there are certain things that need improvement:

Sofa bed (was super dirty, uncomfortable and the sheets were not complete.

We found broken glass in the porch (under the door matt) my nieces who were both barefooted almost hurt themselves with them.

The outdoor living room the couch had a cigarette burn and the cigarettes Butts were left there too.

The place however has a lot of room and the people from vacasa have been very attentive.

Manager response:
Hi, Daniela! Thank you for taking the time to leave us some feedback on your recent stay at Watercolor Beauty! We value cleanliness and safety very highly and are disappointed that your rental home did not reflect these values upon arrival. We appreciate you notifying us promptly so that we could take the appropriate steps toward a resolution. We hope to have the chance to impress you on your next visit!

Watercolor is a great neighborhood! This is a good location for biking to the pools, beach, and restaurants. Overall the house was nice enough, but a number of things that simply need attention from the owners. (Vacasa was great, very responsive.)

1. Wifi did not work, even after rebooting. Very frustrating.
2. Oven did not work without holding the door closed for a few minutes to get it to stay closed and heat past preheating level.
3. Inside of house was clean, and good space, but outside needs attention, is a bit neglected.
4. Kitchen is sparsely supplied, difficult to cook/serve even a simple meal. No scissors, no decent cutting/chopping knives, we bought our own for the stay.
5. No broom or dustpan/brush to keep the walkway, porch, or entry way clean during stay.
6. Back patio furniture worn and dirty, did not use this area for this reason.
7. Multiple lightbulbs out, including 2 over dining table.

Plenty of bikes at this property, that was a plus! Great house, just needs a little more care and attention.
Manager response:
Hello Wade,Thank you for staying with us! We are so glad you had a great time!

I loved the layout of the house. The kids had their own space and I had mine.
Shannon G. Mar 2021
The house was perfect for 3 adults who loved having their own room and then the 4th bedroom for our 3 daughters. They were wonderful to work with and the Watercolor location gave us access to the Watercolor pools, etc.
VICKI T. Nov 2020
The house was cozy and everyone had their space and bikes are a plus
Denise D. Aug 2020
Location and affordable
Major C. Jun 2020
Good things were the location, access to pools and beach! Plenty of space for a family of 4. Having 3 bikes to ride was nice. Home has a lot of potential to be great.

Things that need improvement are as follows.
- more dishes in the kitchen
- no pot holders
- ice machine was froze up
- bugs were bad at times, need extermination
- backyard was a jungle, just needs attention to overgrown vegetation
- only given one trash bag in kitchen for week.
- no stuff for taking to beach, chairs, towels, umbrella.
- floors were dirty with sandy dirt.

We did contact Vacasa Manager and received a $209 credit
Jana H. Mar 2020
It served our needs; loved the front porch and the locale. Very limited kitchen supplies. We were disappointed that we didn't have access to the bikes and my call to management company (regarding bikes) was not returned.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Jana. We apologize that we fell short of providing the eminent customer experience we are proud to offer our guests. The best way to reach us is our 24/7 line at 503-345-9399. We hope to have the chance to impress you in the future!
Amy S. Jan 2020
This house was ideal. The layout offered spacious and well-appointed accommodations while still being cozy. The location was just a little bike ride or walk to the beach, and the Watercolor Beach Club access made this house a great rental. Vacasa was quick in responding the text message questions (even on New YearsDay). I would absolutely choose to stay here again on my next stay in the Watercolor/Seaside area.
Suzette W. Oct 2019
Home was very nice, had everything we wanted and more. Very clean and bright. We walked to beach, store, restaurants and pool (which is great).
Al W. Aug 2019

robert c. Jul 2019
We love this house and watercolor
Julius B. Jul 2019
The house was clean, bright and had most of what we needed. Not super close to the beach, but once you find your way around, its no big deal. Loved biking through the neighborhoods.
Patty B. Jul 2019
We stayed in the house with 10 people and were very comfortable!! Close to the beach and in a great community! Would definitely stay here again.
Denae G. Jul 2019
The house is beautiful and watercolor is amazing
Matthew M. May 2019
Location, however no instructions on how to get the trash picked up and it was full upon arrival. Ice maker was plugged up with ice therefore would not give ice through the door. Yard area on side of house is overgrown causing difficulties getting to the outdoor shower prior to entering the house! I expected more for the price paid for this house.
Mindy H. Apr 2019
We loved the house! It was clean, adorable and found everything in it we needed for a fantastic weekend. We all wanted to move in!! Comfortable couch and beds. I would definitely rent it again. The owner is one lucky person! Manager for management company was so kind and helpful.
Christopher H. Aug 2018
The home was very comfortable and had a modern beachy feel! Quiet neighborhood close to all of the action and the beach. Responsiveness of the Vacasa team and home manager were prompt and professional. Sleeps multiple families comfortable with lots of space for the kids to enjoy themselves. Would recommend!
Frances Q. Jul 2018
Love the house! The pictures are exactly the house. It was beautiful. The Vacasa team did a great job responding to my questions. They were very responsive. I would select this home again.
Jolie M. Dec 2017
This house was spacious and accommodating for two families of four. Overall very well decorated and comfortable. Needed a few amenities such as pot holders, pizza cutter, serving bowls, night stands, etc. But definitely a nice place for the price.
Whit A. Dec 2017
Home was perfect for my family of 7 and trip for friends wedding. Location was close to many good restaurants and bars. Walking distance to beach.
House was spotless clean with beautiful decor. Would recommend to anyone with lots of family members wanting to stay together.
Rachelle Y. Oct 2017
We loved staying in Watercolor Beauty! Can't wait to book this house again!
Raymond V. Sep 2017
Very pleased the 8 extra hours we purchased
Scott And Nan M. Jul 2017
Loved that we could rent for half the week - worked perfectly with our schedule. We always love staying at Watercolor!
Michael T. Apr 2017
The place was so clean and inviting. We loved the front porch and we would just sit out there and watch our kids play out front while we would relax on the swing. We felt comfortable letting our kids ride their bikes in the street in front of the house because it's on a quiet road with speed bumps around. It was fun riding bikes to the different pools and amenities WaterColor has to offer. The home is also located very close to Publix grocery store so it was convenient if we needed to run to the store for anything. It was quiet and peaceful but it was easy to get to Seaside and other fun things to do along 30A because you are one road away from 395 which takes you right to 30A. We could walk or ride bikes to the Seagrove Village market and we loved eating there. It was also easy to ride our bikes to Seaside. The kids loved the pool and playground at Camp WaterColor which was very close. The house was charming and decorated so nice. Vacasa was great to rent through and we can't wait to come back.
