An amazing family getaway to Watercolors. Family friendly, food friendly, friendly friendly. Special thanks to Joy for the Beach Chairs and Michael Clauson for the late check out. Watercolors paints the perfect palette for your family at the beach.

Especially appreciated the large counter/bar area we used for bottles, baby food, snacks, drinks. The bathrooms are fantastic, HUGE shower with a view of the ocean! (our 4-year-old commented it was big enough for... More

My daughter and I stayed here for 7 nights in March. I had enjoyed a long weekend stay here with my sister several years ago and thought I'd try it again. We had a room on the top floor. Do ask for a room with a low number -01,-02,03,04. They will be at the end of the hall and quieter.... More

My wife and I had the good fortune of staying at the Watercolor Inn this past week. What a tremendous experience. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel warm and welcomed. We spent the extra $'s for a gulf view and it was worth every penny. The nice thing about this resort is that you don't feel... More

Watercolour is a wonderful place - beautiful beach, great facilities, lovely staff and great food. Highly recommended. There are very few places of this quality which still seem 'undiscovered' - walking on the white sands we really felt we had found a gem.

My husband and I stay at the Watercolor Inn every year for the Seaside 1/2 Marathon. It's so easy to walk out the front door to the start/finish line. We had another wonderful stay this year. The staff makes us feel at home. We actually extended our stay an extra day to avoid winter weather at home. This year the... More
