About the property

3600 sqft Expansive Porches & Steps To Pool!

Treat your family to “Sea Star” — a luxurious 3600 sq. ft. home with a large kitchen, massive porches and grand dining room. Relax on the upstairs porch bed swing overlooking the park, or play games on the porch table or the indoor game table. Two fireplaces — one in the living room and the other outdoors for family s’mores night. Quality finishes, professionally decorated, high ceilings and plenty of room for all, including a convenient first floor bedroom. Stroll across the street to the park (great for movie night!) and to Camp WaterColor. Sea Star is a vacation paradise sure to please the whole family.

Click 'video' above for a tour of magnificent Sea Star.

Ground floor: This stunning home has a large living room with fireplace, flat panel TV, game table for four, surrounded by custom wood cottage walls. Sea Star’s sound system allows you to play your favorite iPod playlist or the TV DVR recorder in the living room, dining room, and master bedroom simultaneously. Enjoy the chef’s kitchen with an island Dacor gas cooktop, built in refrigerator with two freezer drawers and ice maker, and loads of space for food storage. All kitchen cookware, bakeware and utensils you will need are at your fingertips, as well as quality dishes, glassware and serve ware. Just steps away from the kitchen is a queen bedroom, in addition to a large work desk, perfect for using the dual band Wi-Fi and high speed internet. Also on the first floor: expansive entryway, large washer / dryer room, and a full bath featuring pebble floor and travertine tile shower.

Upstairs you will find three spacious and sunny bedrooms, and a kids’ bunk room connecting to the master suite each with a flat panel TV. The master suite has a separate sitting room and an entrance to the second level porch, as well as a marble bath whirlpool and separate shower. The second king bedroom has a beautiful ensuite bath, reading chair and two closets. The twin bedroom is spacious and bright.

Sea Star has an outdoor brick fireplace and patio, and comfortable furniture for a 'living room” environment among the trees. The propane gas grill and bicycles are ready for your vacation use. Parking for two cars is also in the back.

Enjoy the walking trails, biking, and four pools within WaterColor. Especially important for Spring Break — the Camp WaterColor pool across the street from Sea Star is heated! When Sea Star was added to the rental market for 2014, we updated everything to ensure it is in perfect condition for our guests — and the most important feature we changed was putting the cottage in the hands of Sanders Beach Rentals to ensure every guest is treated like a VIP.

Camp WaterColor Construction: The Camp WaterColor pool expansion will become a family fun destination. The newly redesigned Camp WaterColor pool will triple the size of the existing area and is designed to accommodate all ages and abilities of guests. Zero-entry pool access, like the gentle slope of the beach, will provide easy access to the water making the pool even more family friendly. The enhanced amenity will provide the convenience of food, beverage and bar service to guests of the improved Camp WaterColor.

Construction is expected to be ongoing through the fall of 2018. The Dragonfly pool, Boathouse pool, Beach Club pool, and Sandhill "Frog" pool (heated) will remain open. Renderings of the completed project are available in the property photo gallery.

Featured Amenities Provided: Adult cruiser bikes provided by our partners at Big Fish Bike Co along with access to WaterColor’s Beach Club and Pool, Boathouse Pool, Dragonfly Pool, Frog Pool (heated) & Camp Pool. Access to the WaterColor Tennis Center and Fitness club are available with an added fee at the door.

Please note: Effective March 15, 2014, golf cart rentals in WaterColor must be made through The Electric Cart Company and will be limited to 45 vehicles throughout the community at any given time. Only one cart may be rented per home and rentals will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We loved our visit to the beautiful WaterColor home. Walking through the cool woods of WaterColor, easy access to Seaside and WaterColor shops and restaurants, and beautiful NW Florida Beaches. The kids loved riding bikes everywhere. Sea Star is beautifully decorated with room for everyone. Perfect for two families to share with comfy beds, beautifully appointed bathrooms, lovely living space. We had a Game Night at the big dining room table and cozy chats by the fireplace, indoor and out! We will definitely be coming back soon!

Summer family vacation

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for us. There was plenty of space for the 4 teenagers to spread out. We seemed to be the spot where everybody gathered for games, music, and wine, and the house was perfect for entertaining. The beds were all very comfortable and enough bathrooms for everyone. The Watercolor pool and park are just across the street. Great for a pickup game of soccer or baseball. Not far by bicycle to the beach and very close to Publix. We didn't want to leave!

Great Location and Home

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to WaterColor for 3 years now and the location of this home was by far our favorite! Having the Camp WaterColor pool and playground just steps away was perfect for our crew - I highly recommend with little ones! The house was great for entertaining, spacious enough for all of us, and very clean. The management company really gets five stars for all their help and hospitality! We will be back!!

If you are looking for that perfect get-away in a perfect location, then look no further! There was so much to love about Sea Star. The instant my family and I arrived at Sea Star we became relaxed and our vacation commenced. The home was everything we wanted and more. The home was fully equipped, spacious, clean, and had an amazing kitchen. My family and I enjoyed time on the porch and the proximity to the pool was fantastic. Not knowing what to expect Sea Star exceeded expectations. Furthermore, we loved how close everything was from the home. Attractions, restaurants and the beach were all an easy walk or bike ride into town. This house was truly amazing and we definitely be back in the future!

What a wonderful place. We loved the house and it was so perfectly managed we lacked for nothing. There were six of us - three couples, all different ages, and there was something to enjoy for all of us. Bikes and walking in beautiful woodsy streets.. A beautiful park with a swimming pool right across the street. How great is that!! And, the beach, WOW, no stones, no seaweed, just beautiful clear water and white sand. There were incredible restaurants for all tastes. Great Southern Cooking, The Old Fish House for the sea food lovers - or lovers of food of any kind. I just can't say enough about this beautiful property. So relaxing to just sit on the porch, go paddle boarding, wonderful beach, pool across the street and a beautiful house that was even prettier than the pictures. Just loved it, definitely would return.

This home delivered everything promised and then some. The beauty and comfort of Sea Star was exceptional, and it was spotlessly clean. It was fun discovering all the special touches for our comfort - everything we needed in the kitchen and baths, and lots of space throughout the home for family get togethers as well as getting away to a quiet spot to enjoy a book overlooking the park. We especially loved the outdoor fireplace (the owners thoughtfully provided wood to burn), with an evening under the stars toasting marshmallows and singing old campfire songs. This lovely home was relaxing, comfortable, elegant and beyond our expectations. We created family memories that will last a lifetime, and we hope to return again to Sea Star!
