WaterColor Inn and Resort – Santa Rosa Beach, Florida

Located in sunny northwest Florida, WaterColor Inn and Resort is destination for both families and couples looking for a luxurious beach getaway.

WaterColor is a multi-use development that covers hundreds of acres and includes the Inn, vacation homes, and retail areas.  The Inn is located directly on the beach and has 60 newly renovated guestrooms which are all alike except for the view.

Guest room with King bed and sleeper sofa

All guest rooms have king beds with full sofa sleepers and a balcony/patio.  The lowest level has views of the dunes and because there’s no view of the ocean you have an outdoor shower, patio, and can walk directly to the beach.

View from 3rd floor guest room

The 2nd floor has coastal views, 3rd floor has water views while the 4th floor has a beach view (premium water view).

Bathroom with double sinks, WC to the left and shower to the right
