NOTE: When booking, please provide the correct number of adults and children that will be staying in the home. WaterColor requires a wristband for all guests, to allow access to the amenities (pool and beach) so you must provide the correct number of guests to ensure everyone will have access to the community amenities. We are not able to provide additional wristbands after your arrival, so it is imperative you inform us at least two weeks before your arrival if there is a change after the time of booking.  The HOA will not allow more than 4 guests in this home at any time, and they will not issue more than 4 bands per stay.  No exceptions can be made.

Many of the communities along 30A are continuing to expand, so many more individuals can come enjoy the crystal blue waters of the Panhandle. Unfortunately, a side effect of this is construction and all the items that come along with it, such as noise, road blocks, etc. We understand this can be inconvenient for our guests, which is why we have chosen to make all possible guests aware of the possibility of this during their beach vacation. As most of this is outside of 30A Cottages realm of control, we are not able to offer discounts/compensation for any noise complaints, road blockades, etc. during a guest's stay. Please reach out to a team member with any questions you may have!

Community Amenities 
Hailed for its eco-friendly design and environmental stewardship, WaterColor effortlessly blends top-notch amenities with the breathtaking natural environment that has made 30A a world-class destination.

This place was beautiful and such a calming place. I loved the gulf views from upstairs. We have been staying at watercolor for 2o years at another nearby condo. Since it wasn’t available for rent this year, we stayed at Beach Hat, and just loved it. Over the years, we have also dealt with several rental companies. I was so impressed with 30-A cottages. Their level of communication was the most we have ever had. We will be back!

Location was FANTASTIC! We traveled with our 2 year old and walking to the beach every day was so easy! Literally footsteps away from the beach club. The watercolor amenities are fabulous! We enjoyed the cozy treehouse feel of our apartment. It was clean and comfortable and very well stocked. The views from the top patio were awesome! We had a great stay and will plan to stay again.

Beautifully decorated condo with lots of windows for natural light. We loved the high ceilings on the first and second floor and the outside porches on both floors. The modern kitchen was well stocked with various appliances, and everything was very clean. Also loved the jacuzzi tub on the first floor and the large bathroom upstairs in the master bedroom. There is a partial view of the ocean from the porch upstairs.

This property was ridiculously close to the Watercolor Beach Club and beach. It was also right in the middle of the Watercolor shops and restaurants. It was a short walk, 0.3 miles, to the boat house for paddle boarding, and a 1.8 mile bike ride to the kids club pools. It’s on the third floor, but has an elevator to bring your stuff upstairs and down easily. The master bedroom was really nice and the top floor balcony has a view of the ocean. Our kids are 10 & 7 and shared the fold -out couch, which worked great for them, and having a full bath downstairs was a nice convenience. We would definitely stay here again. One thing to note: the beach access is only stairs, so if you bring a wagon full of beach toys, like we did, be prepared to have to carry your wagon up and down the stairs.

Highly recommend!

My husband and I loved our stay here. You cannot beat the location. It is not even a minute walk to the Beach Club. We were really able to make the most of our time being so close to everything. Check in and out were very easy. Highly recommend for a relaxing beach trip!

We had a great week at Beach Hat! The location could NOT have been better for our family. We walked to the Beach Club with no trouble, and the Candy Bar and other restaurants on 30A. It was also a short walk to Seaside, and we even rode bikes with the kids to Duckie's! The condo itself was beautiful! The kids loved the jetted bathtub downstairs, and we enjoyed getting sun on the porch upstairs. The only negative I would have would be the parking situation. The parking lot is not patrolled at all, so at certain times, there were no spots for us to park in. There were a lot of cars in the parking lot with no Watercolor parking pass, but it was often too much of a pain to call security/Sherriff's department, so we ended up parking on a curb. This shouldn't be a problem, though, if you don't plan on moving your car once you get there. Everything is in biking distance, but we had family staying in Destin, so we drove there most afternoons. Would definitely recommend for a fun, relaxing vacation!!

Amazing!

We've been visiting the Watercolor/30a area for 5 years and this was hands down, our favorite spot yet! Plenty of space for myself, my husband and our 2 children. The proximity to the beach/pool was a huge plus. The 2 included bikes was a bonus also! Our favorite feature was the 2nd balcony off the master bedroom. There was no roof, so you could lay up there at night and watch the stars and listen to the ocean. We will definitely be booking the Beach Hat again!

Wonderful Stay!

Loved the location in Watercolor. Wonderful view of ocean in the distance from the top floor balcony. Great sunset watching. Nice to have another full bath downstairs. Master bathroom/bedroom all in same room-only a problem if you are a very light sleeper and the sound of the shower or sink wakes you (no problem for us). Good toiletries and linens. 30A Cottages & Concierges do a great job with their customer service.

We loved our stay here! The place was very clean and comfortable. It was so conveniently located, just a minute walk to the pool and beach. We loved walking around to the nearby shops and restaurants as well. Beautiful view, everything we needed for a nice stay. We stayed here with my husband and I and our three kids and we all fit perfectly. We had our two eight year olds downstairs on the pull out couch and they were very comfy sleeping there. Upstairs we had a pack and play set up in the master bedroom with us for our little guy and that worked very well. Plenty of room for all! Thank you so much for offering your place to us!

We loved Beach Hat and will absolutely book it again. It was very clean, well appointed and had a great location. The condo is one of the more spacious 1 bedrooms I found while looking in the Watercolor/Seaside area. 2 full baths, kind bed, 2 very nice decks. Easily would be enough room for a family of 4 or even 4 adults as long as 2 don’t mind a pull-out couch.

Unfortunately we had horrible weather during our stay at Beach Hat, but on the bright side what a wonderful place to be cooped up! The house is decorated beautifully, comfortable and plenty of space to spread out, excellent accommodations! Great location, short walk to restaurants and shops.....during the breaks in the rain! We had a late check in and 30A Cottages made everything so easy! Guest cards and parking passes were left inside the home and the entry code was text to me.....couldn't have been easier!
