Family-friendly Santa Rosa Beach cottage in Watercolor, walk to Seaside Beach
This Luxurious Carriage House, 'Goin' Coastal' in WaterColor is the perfect vacation rental. It is separate from the large private home and its spacious studio-like room with 15-foot ceilings and gorgeous hardwood floors fits the needs of friends on a get-a-way, a couple on a romantic weekend or a small family with room for a couple of small kids. In addition to the plush king bed there is also a queen convertible sofa bed and plenty of room for cribs or extra luggage!

The large queen bed/comfy sofa is the perfect place to watch sporting events or movies in front of the large flat screen TV. The kitchen is ideal for quick meals and has a full-sized fridge, sink and microwave. There is no stove, oven or washer/dryer as we assume you will be enjoying one of the many restaurants in the area and not cooking or doing laundry while on vacation! The full bathroom includes a shower, tub and large sink area with room to spread out as you get ready to go out to a nice dinner or a walk on our pristine white beaches to view our incredible sunsets.

The cozy carriage house is on a quiet corner in Phase II and overlooks a beautiful pond. We are steps away from one of WaterColor's seven gorgeous pools.

WaterColor was voted the #1 Family Resort by Travel and Leisure and is the perfect place to enjoy the perfect beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. We have just completed the brand new Camp Watercolor with two pools, slides and a lazy river as well as the new 2020 Watercolor Beach Club with three pools and three restaurants. There is nothing like this on the coast. Numerous activities are available such as biking, kayaking, surfing, tennis, golf, hiking and incredible restaurants for the family as well as just adults. Having come to 30A for 15 plus years with four kids ourselves WaterColor has great access to wonderful responsible babysitters that will treat your kids as their own. The southern hospitality is like no other and you will find yourselves coming back year after year like we did before we made this our home. Come and enjoy the vacation you deserve and remember... a day at the beach is worth a million in town!

Charming property in high demand area
Location, location, location! You’re close to all the amenities that the Watercolor community has to offer, plus you’re a short walk from Seaside and a short drive from all of the other cute towns along 30A. Beth is a fantastic host - great at making sure you have what you need and is an awesome communicator! Thanks for a great stay!

5/5 Excellent

Incredible carriage house and incredible owners!!
What an adorable places to stay for a fun week in the sun with easy access to the beach via provided bikes. Beth and Randy are the kindest and most accommodating owners I’ve ever come across. Their intention is for your week of vacation to be a reflection of how much they clearly love Watercolor. Truly a slice of heaven!

5/5 Excellent

Absolutely heaven on earth!
First and foremost, you will not find a more friendly host that will accommodate you like Beth. She and her husband Randy are wonderful warming people and makes you feel more like family than renters! Beth was so helpful with dinning suggestions, nearby grocery stores and beach access areas. This cozy cottage is a gem, beautifully "modern coastal" decorated, extremely clean and comfortable. We can't wait to return again!!!

5/5 Excellent

The best family vacation!
This was our first vacation as a family of 3. We took our 6 month old to the beach & had a blast! Beth & Randy were so kind and hospitable and checked in with us every day. One thing to note for future travelers is the carriage house is upstairs. It had a big bed, couch, kitchen & TV. We brought our pack n play for our baby to sleep in and there was plenty of room. We bought some groceries at the Publix nearby to make breakfast & lunch. We spent most of our time at the pool and beach! It was perfect and the best family getaway. I would definitely recommend this place and can’t wait to come back to Watercolor!

5/5 Excellent

Best spot on the pan handle!
Beth’s place was absolutely perfect! It was exactly what my wife and I were looking for with this being our first vacation with our newborn baby. The room was so spacious and impeccably clean, with high ceilings and the most comfortable king bed. There was plenty of room for our daughters pack and play bed, and I was even able to work comfortably from the desk one afternoon. The host and her husband were incredibly kind and generous people. They went over the top to make sure our stay was perfect. They are so sweet and we felt at home staying there. Excellent communication, as well. This place is a great option for those who need something simple, yet refined and close to all the best beaches and pools.
