About the home

This property is professionally managed by Oversee Rentals.

**The upper deck of the WaterColor Beach Club is now open with food service available at Fish Out Of Water. Renovations continue on the second and third floor decks.**

Welcome to Sandy Oar, this traditional lake house gets a dose of rustic refinement in this charming cottage with accommodations for 14 in the Lake District. Natural hues of pine and driftwood are enlivened with red accents to create an atmosphere of relaxed sophistication.

In the living area, a sectional sofa faces a smart flat screen television with DVD. The adjacent dining area has a round table for eight, with five additional seats at the expansive kitchen island. The gourmet kitchen is equipped with granite countertops, stainless dual fuel range, and panel-front refrigerator and dishwasher to match the espresso-toned custom cabinets.

The romantic master is furnished with a king iron bed facing an armoire in which a television and DVD are concealed. The private bath has a large walk-in shower with bench seat, and dual granite-topped vanity. Also on the main level there is a queen bedroom with a television and DVD, which adjoins a hall bath equipped with a combination tub and shower, plus single vanity.

Upstairs are two bedrooms - one with a queen bed, the other with two sets of built-in twin bunks and includes a large closet with built in shelving. Both rooms are furnished with televisions and DVDs. They share a hall bath with a walk-in shower and single vanity, which adjoins the queen bedroom.

The recently completed carriage house has sleeping for 4 with a queen bed in the master, queen sleeper, efficiency kitchen and covered parking. Generous porches and outdoor seating invite leisurely conversation and the outdoor fire-pit will provide great family memories of late evenings by the fire. The community recreation area, including The Frog Pool, is just one block away.

This home had everything we needed for 5 friends and our teenage kids. The kitchen was well-stocked and the carriage house came in handy for the kids. The Watercolor community was fun....having the bikes was a definite plus!

Hi Angie, we are so happy that you had a fun time at Sandy Oar and within the WaterColor community. We hope to see you again soon.

Completely impressed!

Our big family have vacationed in Destin many times (mainly bc there are more beach front homes). This is the first time in Watercolor. We absolutely loved it! The house is about a block from the Frog Pool, and about 2 blocks from the walking/bike trail which leads to the beach. It's about a 15 to 20 minute walk along the trail to the beach. About 7 to 10 minute bike ride on trail to the beach.

Watercolor offers free shuttle service in a golf cart. It's from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. you call them and they pick you up from wherever you are in Watercolor (your home, beach, etc) and drops you off anywhere in Watercolor. We used it A LOT for the fir the elder adults and babies. The shuttle does get backed up during peak hours bc there are only two golf carts.

You know that feeling you get when you walk into a beautiful home? That's how we all felt when we first stepped into this home! We were all excited!
The home looks small online but it is quite spacious. The high ceiling, open kitchen plan, giant island, big dining table made it possible for my family of 13 feel comfortable and always together in one common area. Having 2 bedrooms downstairs made it easier for our elder parents and one of the families with young kids. The spacious front porch and screened back porch was where some of us gathered for quiet time.
The carriage house was perfect for our teenage daughters and cousins.
The ONLY thing we would have liked to have was more kitchen items: crockpot, more skillets, utensils (ladles, spatulas), more colander. The carriage house isn't a full kitchen. Doesn't have an oven.
Would LOVE for this property to add a golf cart in the future!

Regardless, we would definitely come back and book at Sandy Oar again!

Thank you for the great memories!

This house was perfect for our group. Everyone gathered in the kitchen every morning/night. Great place for large groups with kids. Bonus with the carriage house for families with little ones. Close to Publix and just an overall great beach house.

This is a wonderful house that is very kid friendly and we would definitely stay here again in the future. This place was very clean, was in great shape, and came well furnished. We loved the front and back porches and that the house came supplied with kids trailers and not just adult bikes. The built in bunk beds were extremely well made, and the kids loved the bunk room. My only significant complaint is that the water heater was very underpowered and could only provide 1-2 hot showers before running out of hot water.

Hi Bradley, we are thrilled to hear you found Sandy Oar to be clean, in great shape and well furnished. We look forward to your next stay at Sandy Oar with Oversee.

It was very nice. The beach house was very roomy. It had plenty room for everyone. The apartment was really nice and big. We had the best weather sun every day and wasn’t to hot. I would definitely recommend this beach house it was close to camp water color which was amazing and not to far from the beach.
