Santa Rosa Beach, Florida
The Lighthouse, Watercolor Resort
Pristine home! Located on a quiet street in WaterColor's newest district, "The Crossings," this home is conveniently located only 4 blocks from the beach, across the street from Dragonfly Park pool, and a short walk to Publix. The restaurants and shops of Seaside and WaterColor are less than a 5-minute bike ride from your front door. Courtesy concierge electric cart service is also provided.
Serene decor, high-end furnishings, and mint-condition maintenance make this home exceptional.

Ours is a light-filled home with an abundance of windows, decorated in cool neutrals and the palest shades of blue-greens in the soothing and iconic WaterColor manner.
We overlook Dragonfly Park's lily pond. Nestle into the oversized swing bed on the screened porch with a cup of coffee or a good book ... float in the gentle beach breeze and be serenaded by a morning chorus of birds or a magical evening symphony of frogs.
A large gas grill, seating area, and outdoor shower are located at the rear of the home.
Our corner of WaterColor is uniquely situated so that there is no through-traffic in the area, allowing peace of mind for families with children.
Across the street, the beautiful Dragonfly Park pool features a bejeweled waterfall, an enormous outdoor kitchen and fireplace, and outdoor showers. And just a few paces from your front door are the wide-open lawns of the Park, a haven for children to run free, play, or set up a lemonade stand and meet their neighbors.
Bicycling is our favorite entertainment, and four bicycles are included with your rental at no extra charge because we don't want you to miss this delightful experience. Miles of nature trails lace the 500-acre resort, and the Beach Club, 6 delightful pools, grassy parks, and the renowned WaterColor flower gardens make great biking destinations.
A unique feature of WaterColor is that it's bounded to the west by Grayton Beach State Park and to the north by Point Washington State Forest. With 3-mile, 5-mile, and 10-mile trail loops, you will almost always have these protected preserves entirely to yourself.
For even more fun, a 19-mile paved bike path parallels the entire length of scenic 30A and passes through all of its famous beach communities. Enjoy the thrill of biking alongside rare coastal dune lakes and discovering a side of South Walton that's difficult to see from a car.
Hurry to 87 East Summersweet as quickly as you can, and we promise you'll wish you never had to leave. Once you've experienced this magical place, you'll want to return to "The Lighthouse" beach house time after time!

Courtesy concierge electric cart service is also provided, and for destinations further away, Uber operates in our area with good reviews.
LUXURY: Our home provides the luxury that you expect within the 5-star St. Joe WaterColor resort. Serene style, high-end designer furnishings, Sferra and Peacock Alley linens, and mint-condition maintenance envelop you with a sense of calm that is beyond what is offered in similar homes in the area. We've appointed our home with the best, because we want you to be our guest!
