The Watercolor community is known for its natural outdoor beauty, now take your family to see where the same applies indoors. This stunning, 5-bed, 6.5-bath home is certainly not something you’ll find every day (or even every year) in this location. But you did, so we want to tell you a little about it.

Let’s begin with the obvious. Why yes, that is the largest viewing tower in Watercolor from which to take in jaw-dropping panoramic views of the entire bucolic area, including the striking white sands and turquoise Gulf. Perched high upon the fourth floor of this exclusive residence, the scenic room is yours alone and has sofas spanning three of the four walls to seat all the family and friends you can muster in maximum comfort.

Down below, the luxury continues for adults and children alike. You’ll certainly enjoy all the natural light in both the kitchen and family room, as well as the stainless steel appliances, Carrara marble countertops, muted celery-colored cabinetry, and gorgeous sandstone floors. Looking to wind down? Take a break in the home’s very own steam room. And as for the kids? They’ll actually look forward to hunkering down in their very own 4-bed bunk room. Hearing “time for bed” may actually be met with smiles.

Outside, the luxurious life is no different. Each guest room features its own deck with unique views, and the outdoor dining area is perfect for socializing with everyone in the evening breeze. And don’t forget the rare-for-the-area, two-car garage for those occasional rainy days. As for Watercolor itself, well, you’ll just have to experience yourself. But here’s a taste. You could do worse than beginning at the famous Watercolor Inn, as this home enjoys access to many of their award-winning amenities. Looking for a little more one-on-one time with your family and friends? Don’t blame you, that’s why you’re here. Take the group for a stroll, as you are just steps from the relaxing beach or many exciting outdoor biking and hiking trails. And of course, the vibrant downtown has plenty of great shopping and restaurants to pass an entire day. Or week.

Homes like this don’t come around very often, so make sure you, your family and friends do at this one-of-kind, Florida retreat.

What You Should Know

What We love

  • Private Elevator so you don't miss the Sunset in the Crow's Nest
  • Almost enough restooms for everyone to have their very own
  • Never bumping into each other while preparing dinner since it is split into two different rooms

What to know

  • The garage is tight, so you'll need to be very careful backing your cars into your personal garage. There are two dedicated spots in the garage, plus 2 spots in front of the house (these are shared with carriage house).
  • Bikes are a must to see everything Watercolor has to offer (we can recommend a great rental shop)
  • There are only tvs in the master bedrooms & living area but you will be having so much fun at the beach you will go straight to bed

What to expect after booking

  • You'll receive a confirmation email shortly after booking.
  • If you've booked more than 60 days prior to your arrival date, we'll send you an email requesting your final payment as that date gets closer.
  • Once you're paid in full, we'll send you an email with the check-in information for your stay, including property access and who to call in case of a problem.

The Particulars

Check-in is at 4:00pm & CHECK-OUT 10:00am

We’re always happy to make you happy. In some cases, it may be possible to grant an earlier check-in or later check-out depending on the booking and maintenance schedule. However, early check-in and late check-outs cannot be guaranteed until 24 hours prior to check-in or check-out date. Please “check-in” with our team for further details.

Cancellation Policy

  • Hit the "Book Now" button a bit too soon? No worries. We offer a 24-hour grace period where any reservation made is eligible for a full refund. Hey, it happens.

  • Your initial payment is 50% of the total, with the remaining balance due 60 days out from checkin. After the 24 hour grace period, all payments become non-refundable.

  • We encourage you to double check everything before you book to make sure you've selected that perfect home, at the ideal time. And while we're on the subject of peace of mind, ask us about our travel insurance package. It's just another amenity we offer to make booking your stay as relaxing as possible.

Complete Guide to Emerald Coast
So white. So bright. So pristine. And so serene. So get to these hidden, Caribbean-like Gulf sands, already. And don’t forget those walking shoes either. That’s because this stretch of Florida all along Highway 30A, is tremendously ...pedestrian friendly. And most of InvitedHome’s properties are easily accessible to anywhere on the Emerald Coast. By foot. By bike. By pedicab or by trike. The unparalleled shoreline and unique villages are never far from reach no matter what mode of transportation you take. (see less)

Emerald Coast 30a Beaches
If you don’t know why the stretch of Scenic Highway 30A along the Florida Gulf is called the Emerald Coast, you certainly will upon arrival. That’s because the crisp green waters are impossible to miss, and the pristine, white sand is a gem in its ...own right. But while they may share the same sea, each beach community has it’s own distinct personality. Here are a few of the best Emerald Coast beaches to get up close and personal with… (see less)

The Best Seafood Dives in Florida
November 11, 2016 Giant open windows provide expansive views of white sand and emerald green water. The Back Porch takes pride in popularizing amberjack, a firm white fish seldom found on menus before the restaurant began featuring it in sandwiches. (We like the ..."angry" version, with spicy mayo.) Also check out the fish-, shrimp-, and crabmeat-filled gumbo, and the tart Key lime pie. (see less)
Comment There's no better way to experience seafood than on a coastal town. Plan to visit the Emerald Coast locations listed after a long day at the ...beach. (see less)

Top 10 Things to Do While Visiting 30A!

For the locals, it’s more than just a road – it’s a way ...of life. Scenic Highway 30-A is a tourist attraction of major proportions. It is an exciting and eclectic mix of hot Caribbean colors and soft pastels, with architecture to match each community’s charm, whether it be Old Florida’s traditional 2-3 story homes, or the cottages of Seaside with white picket fences and pedestrian pathways to New Urbanism, or its miles of greenway trails connecting state parks, preserves and residential areas.
