Charming boutique!
Watercolor in is a very charming boutique hotel located in Water Color along 30A, half mile walk to Seaside center where there are a big square with restaurants and shops. We had a room on 2nd story, can walk through the hotel restaurant and use the deck for direct beach access. Hotel front desk Orco (from Turkey) and Yuka (Japan) are absolutely helpful and kind.
