About Leah Updyke

We reside in Dallas, TX and have been visiting the Gulf Coast since our children were babies! Several years ago we discovered Highway 30A and the welcoming communities of Watercolor and Seaside. We knew this area had to become our second home and in 2013 we found High Tide, the perfect fit for our family!

Leah Updyke purchased this house in 2013

Why Leah Updyke chose Santa Rosa Beach

WaterColor Inn and Resort and the charming cottages within this planned development along with the adjacent Community of Seaside and others on Hwy 30A are quaint beachside communities offering an alternative to the more commercial areas of Destin and Panama City Beach. Bikes are the preferred mode of transportation and the cottages with large front porches transcend to a quieter and more slow-paced, peaceful time. The bonus is that the emerald waters and white sand beaches and all the amenities of WaterColor are a short bike ride away. Amenities such as access to the 5 WaterColor pools including the Beach Club pool that overlooks the ocean with private beach access, tennis, bike and nature trails, yolo boarding on Western Lake (kayaks & canoes must be rented independently of the BoatHouse at WaterColor), shopping, wine bars and dining from food trucks to, beachfront eateries to four star restaurants. WaterColor has so much to offer and we feel blessed to be a part of the community.

What makes this house unique

From the front porch with the sound system and the 2 wonderful swings overlooking a neighborhood park to the enclosed rear porch offering a unique entertainment area and wonderful gathering spot for friends and family we immediately felt like this was home!

Perfect house--perfect weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful home for a long weekend in February. The house itself was gorgeous and well-located. Our group of eight adults instantly felt at home and we all had plenty of space for the weekend. The house instructions were clear and easy to follow and full of dining and activity recommendations. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need. We spent the majority of our time in the screened living area at the back of the house. It was simply divine. We chose to eat in every night just so we could enjoy the house and each other's company. Leah was a fabulous host and was very attentive. I would recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a peaceful retreat nestled within the wonder of Watercolor.

Perfect!

Everything was perfect! Loved the house, it was great for a multiple family situation. So warm and inviting, especially love the outdoor room. My children, grandchildren and my 87 year old mother, my husband and I had the most wonderful vacation. I would highly recommend the house. We had a wonderful vacation!

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience. The weather turned cooler so we were able to enjoy the back porch and fireplace while watching football. I love that every bedroom has a bathroom too. The house is set up beautifully and was very spacious for all four couples staying there. Truly a beautiful home and we loved the decor also.

A Very Pleasant Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was really one of the easiest vacations to schedule. The initial communication with the owner was immediate, and she answered any questions or concerns in a timely manner. There were absolutely no surprises at all regarding cost, fees, or payments. A very straightforward deal.

The listing description and photos of the home were not exactly accurate according to my wife as she said the home was NICER than what was disclosed on VRBO. The property was clean, well maintained, and had just about any cookware that might be needed. There were plenty of utensils and plates etc. The grill worked perfectly and the property is really set up to cook and eat meals on location. There is a publix grocery store about a block and a half away which made shopping easy.

The beach is close and beautiful and there are many activities to enjoy in the immediate area. We especially liked being able to bicycle around the area on bicycles provided with the home. Do not hesitate to rent this property because everything disclosed is accurate and there are no surprise conditions or fees.
