Bright and welcoming, “As You Wish,” has everything to make your vacation dreams come true. Whether cozying up inside or stepping out for an adventure, you’re sure to love your stay.

Designer accents abound in this 3-story beach home. The décor is bright, fun and inviting. The first thing you will notice is the comfy front porch daybed swing… perfect for drinking your morning coffee, reading or watching the bikes roll by.

Boasting 14-foot ceilings, the first floor offers a large family room, a dining room with seating for 8+ and a well-appointed kitchen. Just inside the front door, the family room has plenty of comfortable seating to gather and enjoy each other’s company, play a board game or watch your favorite show on a 55-inch HD smart tv with blu-ray player. The kitchen includes modern stainless steel appliances and a wide assortment of dishes, utensils, pots and pans with everything you’ll need to prepare your favorite dishes. A corner desk is the perfect place to charge all of your electronic devices, using the 4 power outlets below.

Just off of the kitchen and dining room is a large screened in porch with a sectional sofa, a beautiful dining table that expands to seat 12+ and a 50” HD smart TV, perfect for watching a movie or the big game.

When you’re ready for some z’s, retire to one of three beautiful bedrooms on the 2nd floor. The 1st master includes a king bed, a sitting area, a 40 ” HD smart tv and a large private covered porch overlooking the nature preserve. The porch is the perfect spot to read or have a rousing game of ping pong on a rainy day or at the end of long day at the beach. This master has a full bathroom with double showers. The 2nd master includes a king bed, a 32” HD tv, a full bathroom with tub and shower and access to the large front porch that looks out over Red Cedar Way. Here you will find another comfy daybed… the perfect spot for an afternoon nap. The 3rd bedroom, equipped with a twin-over-full bunk bed plus a twin trundle, is perfect for kids or adventurous adults. The 3rd bedroom also includes a 32” HD smart TV, a full bathroom with shower and access to the large front porch.

Perhaps the most fun of all awaits those who venture to the 3rd floor. There you’ll find a secret lookout loft, equipped with a 32” HD flat panel television, a blu-player and shelves full of toys, games, books and puzzles for the young and young at heart. Great for overflow sleeping with a blow up mattress or sleeping bags, kids in particular, won’t want to sleep anywhere else.

Kid-friendly to the max, amenities include a pack and play, a booster seat, an umbrella stroller….

With three beautifully decorated floors and over 1,200 square feet of covered porches, six flat panel HD tv’s with digital cable, 2 blu-ray players, a collection of board games for all ages and wi-fi broadband access, you’ll want for nothing at this home.

Just steps from the house, adventures of your choice await:

Centrally located in Watercolor, you will run out of vacation days long before you run out of things to do within blocks of the house. Just a couple hundred yards from the front door are a soccer field sure to be bustling with a neighborhood pick-up game, a park, basketball court, bocce courts, a neighborhood pool and Camp Watercolor. Camp Watercolor, an absolute gem if your crew includes any “littles”, offers daily, supervised activities for kids, including a day camp, craft hours, movie nights and other special events. See for more details. And if that isn’t enough, how about a pond across the street full of small feisty fish, who seem to have healthy appetites for bacon on a small hook?

Hop on your bike and make two right turns and you will be at the beautiful Watercolor tennis courts. Here you will find excellent, well-lit courts for match play or lessons. Monday-Thursday from 9-10 there is a walk-up clinic for all levels of tennis players. Friday-Sunday you can join the friendly round-robin from 9-10:30.

Maybe want a little serenity at the end of the day? This house backs up to a beautiful nature preserve, which is best enjoyed from one of two huge screened in back porches off of the 1st and 2nd floors. Like to walk (or ride) about? Then step outside the side door and onto miles and miles of biking/walking path spanning throughout Watercolor’s many parks, green spaces, lakes, bridges and block after block of stunning Watercolor architecture.

Not satisfied yet, just jump on a bike for a five-minute ride to the center of Seaside, Florida to experience classic Americana at its finest with great local shopping, restaurants and perhaps a sunset cocktail overlooking the gulf.

And, of course, Watercolor’s main attraction is its beautiful soft white sand beach. This is probably why you came, and you will not be disappointed. About a half a mile away you can park your bike, car or golf cart at the private Watercolor Beach Club and grab some towels, a cold drink and some food on your way to your beach chairs. Biking to and from the beach is a key ingredient in the quintessential day at Watercolor, and four bikes are provided at the house for your use at no extra charge.

Perfect House for Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

This house is the perfect setting for fun in WaterColor! Our grandkids loved the hideaway on the third floor and the ping pong table on the second floor porch. The

living areas and porches are very comfortable for family meals and activities. We liked the location because it was central to everything.

Great house in a picture perfect neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this house. Super close to the town centers of Seaside & Watercolor. Rode bikes on the extensive trails every day, had ping pong tournaments on the screened porch, took naps on the Carolina bed swing and just enjoyed quality family time. We will definitely rent this house again!

Wonderful! Getting there after midnight was a problem locating the address due to not knowing where to look for the house numbers but Mike had contacted us and he had personally gone by and turned on the porch light. We were amazed at how clean and inviting the home was...we were thrilled. We would recommend this property to anyone. It was extremely well thought out and we enjoyed everyroom!

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay in this beautiful house! The location is perfect for an easy bike ride to the beach and it's just down the street from the Camp Watercolor pool. We enjoyed the ping pong table and the four porches!

Perfect beach home for families

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five stayed with another family, with kids ranging in age from 2 to pre-teen. The home and location were perfect for everyone in our group, with the beach a short bike ride away, along with swimming pools, playgrounds, tennis courts, soccer fields, lake, basketball court, and shopping all within walking distance. The home is absolutely beautiful and has plenty of space to accommodate big groups while also feeling very cozy, warm and inviting. It was one of the most fun and relaxing vacations our family has ever had.
