About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

1640 E. County Hwy 30A, Unit #302 – Beach District – Santa Rosa Beach, Florida 32459


Take advantage of the best value in the exclusive seaside community of WaterColor - an incredible penthouse condo in the Beach District! It is THE lowest priced penthouse condo of the six 1 bed/2 bath penthouse condominiums available on the south side of Highway 30-C . Only a few of WaterColor’s properties are located on the beachside of County Highway C-30. This means no crossing the street to get to the beach or the club house or the pool. Recently, WaterColor Resort was ranked second by Travel and Leisure Magazine readers!

This luxurious 1200 square foot penthouse apartment is located on the 3rd and 4th floors of the condominium. The elevator takes you directly to your front door which opens onto the main floor of this elegant penthouse apartment. Here you will find a well-appointed kitchen which opens to the dining and living area. Upscale furnishings beckon you to sit down and relax. You will enjoy cooking gourmet meals, or simply bringing home scrumptious fare from the wine and cheese shop just steps away. Venture out onto your private balcony as you take in spectacular views of the Gulf and of Western Lake, a rare coastal dune lake. The sofa in the main living area converts to a sofa bed to accommodate sleeping arrangements for extra guests. The main floor also features a full bath with a jetted tub where you can immerse yourself in peace and tranquility after a fun-filled day at the beach and the club. A laundry room with full sized washer and dryer are provided for your convenience.

The second story of this penthouse apartment features a king sized bed which awaits you in the large master bedroom with a large master bath en suite. A window nook provides the perfect spot for a bird’s eye view of the coast, a nap, or a good book… the choice is yours. Another private balcony invites you to step outside from your master suite and enjoy panoramic views of the ocean and lake yet again!

Just 50 yards away from your penthouse apartment (half a football field), you will find yourself at the exclusive oceanfront Beach Club! This 45,000 square foot beachfront club includes a casual outdoor restaurant, open air bar, locker room (with lockers, showers, changing rooms, and bathroom facilities), an enormous family pool, a children’s pool, and a tiled sundeck with numerous lounge chairs and table seating. Adjacent to the pool stands a picturesque boardwalk leading to the sugar white sandy beaches and the beautiful emerald green waters. Chilled poolside and beach towels are also provided to all of our guests.

Next door to the beach club is the 5 star “Fish Out Of Water” ocean front restaurant where you can enjoy an elegant meal after a full day of fun in the sun. After dinner, stroll through WaterColor’s Cerulean Park, where fun shops and the market are still only 50 yards from your luxury condo! Venture next door to Seaside’s Town Center, another charming community with upscale shopping and eateries. At the end of your shopping spree, take the elevator up to your penthouse to watch the stars twinkle above the sparkling waters of the sea and the lake. You will enjoy sweeping views of both the ocean and Western Lake from your private balcony!

All of this is just the beginning of the amenities available to our guests. Four other pools scattered about WaterColor are available to you for your swimming pleasure. Enjoy Yolo Boating on Western Lake, a rare coastal dune lake located in Watercolor. We provide two bikes so you may enjoy peddling anywhere in WaterColor, Seaside next door, and other oceanfront communities beyond!

This spacious luxury condo is located in the heart of it all. The owners of “The Club House” would be honored to host you as guests when you are planning your next visit to the captivating shores of WaterColor.

Very nice time

I thought it would have had more of a view of the ocean, otherwise our stay was great.

Water Color

  • 4 of 5

Great location. Less than 5 minutes to the beach. Condo is fairly well equipped. Bring your own digital music player, only CD /DVD player for music. Close to Wine Bar and restaurant. Bikes furnished. Short bike ride to Seaside. Short drive to grocery store.

Condo needs a little maintenance. Clogged dryer vent was fixed quickly. Couple of windows are missing latches so they do not close tightly. Common area was not cleaned well. Large, Sticky ice cream drop in elevator was there all week (not a fault of the condo but of the property managers).

Other than that the property was fine.

Great Condo for our family (couple and 2 boys)!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous Unit in perfect location close to the ocean! Was better in person than in the photos! The two bathrooms and the master bedroom being upstairs made this a very comfortable unit for a family of four! My teenage son enjoyed the sleeper and my nine year old slept in the window seat. The unit has two decks and both had water views. The unit was beautiful and bright we enjoyed our stay! The beach and bike riding were both fabulous as well! Lastly the staff was wonderful and very accommodating! I only wish was that we had stayed longer!

Great Condo for couple or couple + small kids

  • 5 of 5

This is a great unit! I have stayed in several different condos at Watercolor over the years and this is probably my favorite. It is very light and bright. The windows all around upstairs in the master were fabulous. Great views from both decks. Deck furniture was well-maintained.

The interior furniture has been updated - it is even nicer than what is pictured. Nice sectional sofa (sleeper) in the living room gives plenty of seating. The master is very spacious. Probably the largest master we have had in a watercolor unit. You could easily fit a crib for a baby plus there is the window seat/daybed which could suit a small child.

We visited with one teenager who used the sofa sleeper downstairs. The full bath on the main floor (in addition to full bath upstairs) gave her enough private space of her own.

Bikes were there as promised and in good condition. Great for cruising up and down 30A.
