Coastal dune lakes are a rarity. They are found in New Zealand, Australia, Madagascar - and of course here in WaterColor on the Emerald Coast. For nature lovers, this is paradise found. Located on the northern side of Western Lake, the Lake District offers nature lovers the opportunity to enjoy native landscaping and close proximity to this natural wonder. A beautifully crafted pedestrian bridge links guests in the Lake District to the BoatHouse and beyond.

WaterColor is a unique, amenity rich environment with no shortage of leisure and recreational activities. Acres of parks, walking and biking trails lie throughout the community. And while the Emerald Coast is widely known for having the most beautiful beaches in the world, our coastal dune lakes offer unparalleled recreational opportunities right out your backyard.

Guest Reviews

Great house and location make for a wonderful vacation! by Karen O. 07/01/2017
The house was perfect for our group of 12. The location next to the lake bridge was so nice for easy access to the beach. We enjoyed the roof walkout to catch some beautiful sunsets. Also, the Dune Vacations staff was extremely helpful. Overall a great vacation experience.
Great property. by Scott H. 06/03/2017
Very spacious. Well appointed rooms. Great location. Nada attended to every need. Awesome trip.
Spring Break 2017 by Susan H. 04/08/2017
Wow- what a beautiful home to spend with family over spring break. 57 Blackwater is a spacious, open and lovely home. The home has a view of the lake with a walking path that leads just a few steps away from the bridge that leads to the Boathouse, shops, Watercolor Inn and the beach. The bedrooms and closets are all large with walk-in closets big enough for a pack n play. All bathrooms are updated. The kitchen boasts all high end Viking appliances with a large island and ample seating. We enjoyed having family dinners inside and out on the porch. Both tables accommodated our group of 10. The carriage house is a real bonus for guests that need a little more space and privacy. It is also equipped with a small kitchen area. We highly recommend this gorgeous home. Our stay couldn't have been more enjoyable.
Beautiful house, great location, wonderful service by Allison L. 02/08/2017
The house was perfect for our family wedding weekend! There was more than enough room for our family to stay and the living space was great for wedding day prep before the ceremony. The location could not have been better for us. The ceremony took place in the park right next to the house and the reception was held in the Boathouse just over the walking bridge. Seaside and the rest of the Watercolor resort was just a short walk away. Each bedroom was wonderfully furnished and the beds were so comfortable. The kitchen was well appointed with everything you could need to cook for a crowd. There were high-end appliances throughout the house. We couldn't have asked for a better weekend. Dune Vacation Rentals were great to work with. They were very responsive before we arrived and checked in throughout our stay to ensure we had everything we needed.
The home was a wonderful floor plan! The kitchen was stocked with every appliance you could need. by Lindsay E. 08/13/2016
You couldn't have picked a better location. It has an amazing view of the lake, right off the walking path. You're a quick walk over the bridge to the boathouse and pool and a couple blocks from the beach! Will definitely stay here again when we come back!
Great house by Zach T. 06/23/2016
This home had everything we needed, plenty of room, great location and it was very up to date. Nice big back porch that we enjoyed, and the bridge across Western Lake made it easy to get to Seaside and the beach. Easy access to multiple pools and playgrounds within Watercolor as well and very close to grocery store. Management company Dune Realty was great to work with.
Wonderful vacation home! by Patricia A. 06/14/2016
57 Blackwater is a beautiful, expansive home that perfectly fit the needs of our family over a 2-week period. The bedrooms and closets are spacious, and the bonus TV-sleeping space on the third floor is a perfect escape from any downstairs activity. The downstairs spaces are comfortable and inviting, with the favorite being the table with banquette for many nights of game-playing. Beautiful kitchen, appliances, island (with great seating), and lovely decor make for a perfect home inside, and the porch spaces are equally useful and pleasant. The carriage house is the crowning jewel-everyone wanted it! With only great things to say about the house, the location within Watercolor is perhaps even more impressive. At the foot of the boathouse bridge, in between the boathouse and frog pools, and an easy 7 or 8 minute walk to the beach, I don't think it can be beat. Add the superior service of Dune realty from booking to leaving, and I couldn't recommend the entire experience more highly! Thanks for such a wonderful vacation for our 4-generation family.
Great Home / Ideal Location by Gerry B. 03/26/2016
Our family stayed in Green Dragonfly for Easter Break this year. The house is ideally located near the bike/ walking bridge over the lake. Porch settings lend to reading and relaxing, as well as evening cocktails. Unique view of the lake, without any vehicle interference. Active walking/bike path and circle.
House is well designed and upfitted. The Dune Realty team was attentive and ensured all of our needs were met during our stay.
We look forward to coming back to Green Dragonfly!
This was the perfect house for our family. by Clay 03/26/2015
The accessibility to Seaside is a two minute bike ride across the bridge. We enjoyed the privacy of the balcony and outdoor decking for meals and drinks. We would recommend this house to our friends.
