South Beach House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 10

Visit Watercolor and begin to paint your own picture of a perfect vacation. Located right on the Atlantic on South Beach, Watercolor is ideally situated between the Maritime Market and the Shoals Club. This is an immaculate three bedroom home whose open loft (perfect for children) creates four sleeping areas.

'Spacious' will be your first thought upon entering this sunny ocean-side retreat. The bright open floor plan, soaring vaulted ceilings, loads of windows and skylights, warm exotic hardwood floors and cozy gas fireplace come together to give you an exquisite and relaxing atmosphere. Snuggle in the gathering space while listening to the fully integrated sound system or enjoy a movie on the flat screen. Forgotten a movie? Enjoy one of many the homeowner has supplied.

Beyond the sitting area is the kitchen of your dreams! Channel your inner Emeril Lagasse in this fully equipped chef's nirvana. The kitchen features custom cherry cabinets, plenty of granite counter tops for prepping, an oversize island with its own small sink, a six-burner Wolf range, a breakfast bar that seats six and a Sub Zero fridge. There's even an additional refrigerator in the garage.

Just across from the kitchen is the dining room. Enjoy meals under the magnificent chandelier as you are seated at the beautiful table that comfortably accommodates eight. The dining room also houses the home's wet bar. (FYI-In the bar cabinet is the controls for the sound system. Whether enjoying some music cooking in the kitchen, outside in the hot tub, or even upstairs watching the sunset from the master bedroom balcony, you will have the audio to keep your vacation frame of mind. Each zone has its own wall-mounted volume control to adjust accordingly.)

From the living room and kitchen, walk directly onto the covered porch and grab one of the many rocking chairs or lounges so you can enjoy the sounds and views of the water. If you prefer, step into the hot tub located on the porch-relish the relaxing water while you savor your view of the ocean! Down a few steps from the porch is the home's private oceanfront deck with a large teak table that seats at least eight people. This comes in handy when the hot dogs and hamburgers you fix are ready from the adjacent large gas grill. From here, it's just a hop, skip and jump down the home's private boardwalk access to the beach's soft sand and sparkling water.

Two of Watercolor's bedrooms are on the first floor. They each feature a queen bed. The one located on the ocean side of the house has its own private ensuite bathroom and entrance to the front porch. The other bedroom is located just across the hallway. Its bathroom is conveniently located just outside its door. Both bedrooms come complete with their own flat screen televisions, DVD player and VHS cassette player.

Upstairs the open loft is equipped with two twin trundle beds. These twin beds are amply large enough for an adult. The loft also houses a sitting area with a large flat screen television, VHS/DVD player and games for everyone to enjoy on the large sofa.

Next to loft is the master bedroom. This exquisite sanctuary will make anybody leave all of their worries behind as they awaken to a panorama of the Atlantic at the foot of their bed. Enjoy the view without stirring from under the covers or open the two sliding glass doors and walk out onto the private covered balcony attached to the bedroom. This spacious suite also boasts its own TV/VCR/DVD and the walk-in closet is so large, it even houses a full-sized crib. The en suite master bath features his and hers sinks and vanities as well as an oversize shower with a stunning ocean view and rain shower head and normal shower wand.

Additional amenities included with this property are an outdoor shower, internet access, bikes, two golf carts (a four-passenger and a six-passenger) and temporary membership to the Bald Head Island Club (with golf privileges). A Shoal’s Club membership is available for an additional fee.

(4BR - one is a loft room, 3BA, 1K / 2Q / 2Tw with trundles, Sleeps 10)

Awesome house with a fantastic view and location. We had some problems with air conditioner leaking water out of a vent in the master bedroom, especially at night. Everything else was great!

We had a great stay. Great location on the island and water front. So quiet and peaceful. House was great, but for the master bed (really bad mattress). Otherwise, it was amazing overall and we will return!

Reviewer Comments:

We have rented this house several times but this will most likely be our last. The house needs a lot of upgrading for the amount of money you spend. The hot tub was not cleaned which is not acceptable. In years past, we have always used the hot tub; this time, it was completely filled with sand & dirt. The master shower is black due to mold and there is mold in the house around the vents. The main sliding door doesn't lock; the master bedroom mattress has a large, visible lump in it; the guest mattress on the main floor is very uncomfortable; there were dead bugs in the house that looked like they had been there a while and weren't cleaned up; and the Shoals Club Membership was not included. The guest bathroom has wood that is rotting and there weren't any additional pillow cases for pillows in the closets. The closets were filthy and looked like they hadn't been cleaned in quite some time. Overall, the house's condition was extremely poor and quite disappointing.

Owner's Response: Dear Steven- First thank you for your candid review. We work hard to make sure our properties are in great condition for our guests. When we receive insights like this, we go into high gear to make sure the problems are remedied. I am happy to report, the mold and bugs are things of the past. A new hot tub is in place and the owner is all over the mattress issues.
