About the property

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 queen sleigh bed there is also a queen convertible sofa bed and plenty of room for cribs or extra luggage!

The large 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. 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!

Best Value in Watercolor

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I had a fabulous stay for our Anniversary weekend. Watercolor is one of the most beautiful areas along 30a. It has an extensive list of amenities with 5 pools, lakes for Paddle boarding, beautiful beaches, lots of local festivals and events, as well as walking and biking trails. The Carriage House was spacious, clean, and adorable. The owners were always available and accommodating. We can't wait to stay again soon! There was a great sushi/cocktail happy hour at The Watercolor Inn & I would recommend the beautiful Gulf view at Bud& Ally's in Seaside for a lunch/dinner/or drinks.

Adorable carriage house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the carriage house over July 4th weekend. It was a perfect choice for our family of four, and it exceeded our expectations! The carriage house is comfortable, nicely decorated, and conveniently located. The beach is a short bike ride or drive away, and there are a few pools that are close by. Watercolor is a beautiful subdivision and very family-friendly. The owners could not have been nicer, and their father was even kind enough to give us a golf cart tour of the area upon arrival! We can't wait to return again and would highly recommend!

This is a perfect spot for you and your significant other to stay in the Seaside/Watercolor area. You can walk almost anywhere and the local Publix grocery store is a stone's throw away. Bike or walk into the Seaside square and spend the day with endless opportunities of food, shopping, and fun!

The neighborhood is gorgeous and the owners live in the main house. So, if needed, they are available fr any questions. Check-in and check-out is super simple with the owners always available and ensuring your stay is nothing short of spectacular.

The owners are very sweet and accommodating. Everything was well decorated and very clean. The space is quite large and you are provided with a mini kitchen with full-size refrigerator, closet and bathroom.

I will definitely be back!

Thank you again to the owners who made my wife and I's experience so great.

Beautiful Carriage House!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this carriage house about 4 times. It is always immaculately clean....beautifully decorated.....awesome bathroom... great comfy couch with a TV for hanging out and enjoying a glass of wine. The owners take care of everything and answer all of your questions promptly. With the high ceilings you do not even feel as if you are in a carriage house. Perfect for a romantic get away:-) The location is convenient...very close to the grocery store and a short bike ride to the beach, and close to one of the neighborhood pools. Can not wait to return!!!!!!!!

Lovely Weekend

This lovely carriage house is just great. The listing description was as stated. The property was very clean and well maintained. The owners were extremely helpful and prompt in their responses to any questions. We enjoyed every aspect of this exceptional property and all the amenities of Watercolor.

Absolutely fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property twice in the past two years. It is about 50 yards from a wonderful pool that is never crowded, a large playground for our kids and is just a short walk, bike ride to the beach. The house is always clean, bright and has some of the best decks for hanging out, watching sunsets, etc.

Besides ample room for a number of our family members, there is a large carriage house in the back with its own kitchen, bath and sitting room. It is a lifesaver.

We have stayed at a number of properties in that area of Florida (we are from D.C. ) including Seaside and other Watercolor houses. This is by far the best design and setup of any house down there.
