Great place, perfect for families with children (not toddlers)

  • 5 of 5
The house is great and we will stay there again, availability permitting. My only comments (which are not intended to be negative but informative) are that the house is not toddler proof so we needed to bring our own gates, outlet covers, etc. and the internet service was both intermittent and slow but that might be due to the local provider. Again, great place and thank you.

Owner's Response: You make a great point about toddlers - while we can not possibly toddler proof our vacation home, we do the best we can to make it as safe as possible with no glass tables, no hard metal chairs or sharp corners. Its a great idea for those with toddlers to remember to bring gates, doorknob, cabinet and outlet covers - no matter which vacation home you choose. If you are flying or unable to bring these things just check with us and we are always willing to try and do all we can to accommodate all our guests.

Not what Expected

  • 3 of 5
This rental was our 4th in the area of Seaside, Rosemary Beach and Watercolor. It was clean and adequately maintained. However, for the investment in a Christmas vacation, for the extended family,
It was sub standard. Kitchen equipment, pots and pans either did not exist or were in terrible shape. Only 2 kitchen dish towels and one pot holder which we finally found in the carriage house kitchen. We did call concierge. Instead of delivering more basic kitchen equipment as promised the next day, I received voicemails about the problem. With very poor cell service, Christmas day, we gave up. The
Week we stayed was very cold. We found one extra blanket. The towels and wash cloths were in
Such bad shape they should have been a sacrificial offering in a bonfire. Last, the Watercolor Resort
Did not consider us to be members for their fitness Equipment. They required us to pay, which we were
Not willing to do as this was expressed as a part of the original package. The house is conveniently located for Seaside and Watercolor. That is the best I can offer.

Owner's Response: We appreciate you advising us that the kitchen and linens were not properly stocked in our home and that the concerige service failed to adequately satisfy those concerns. Please refer to your original rental contract and note that paid fees for use of the Watercolor fitness center were never offered.

Great House

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed in Watercolor a lot and this is a great house. The location is excellent to walk to Seaside and the Watercolor Beach Club. Very clean and well maintained. Everything in working order. I would highly recommend this property.
My only complaint is the somewhat slow response of the "Concierge" service Swantree. We had to call several times when we were missing dish towels and oven mits for the kitchen. We also found someone else's personal property on premises, called them, and they never showed up (as promised) to collect it.

Spring break 2012

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed at Boathouse for our 2012 Spring break. My 79 yr old mother was able to enjoy some peace and quiet with her own personal space in the carriage house over the garage. We also had plenty of space (in addition to our family of 4) for our friend and her daughter and still had a bedroom to spare! The kids thoroughly enjoyed the the boat shaped bunk beds. We couldn't believe how easy it was to skip out the back door to the shops at Seaside Beach!! The house was beautiful and clean, the beds were comfortable and the ping pong table made for some fun nights! We really enjoyed our week and will come back again soon!!!! We highly recommend the house.

We enjoyed staying at the house. We owned a house on Western Lake and rented it for 3 years. Some staples that we supplied for our renters were, garbage bags, paper towels,napkins,laundry detergent, dishwashing liquid, dishwasher cleaner, foil and ziplocks. So when we arrived at your house, I was disappointed that there were none of these items left in the house. Also the toaster didn't work, which I read in other reviews from your previous renters. I know you said they could have called Swantree and one would be delivered but no one wants to do that. We had a Cuisinart toaster in our house and never had a problem. The windowsills in the master bedroom had a ton of dust on them and there were stains on the matress pad in the smaller master bedroom. These are just a few things that as a previous owner I would have liked to have known, hope you do too. You have a great house in the perfect location. We wouldn't stay anywhere other than Western Lake Drive!

Owner's Response: We depend upon our guests to point out anything which would make their stay more enjoyable . We have encouraged our housekeepers to give attention to the standards in cleaning our home. You should have been supplied with the initial sample conveniences of dishwashing soap, paper towels, soap, shampoo and laundry detergent as well as a useful toaster. Our concierge service is contracted as a convenient point of contact to personally address any of your needs and we do encourage our guests to give them an opportunity to provide you their services.
