Reviewer Comments:

Our family has been coming to this area of Florida for one-week vacations for the past 10 years. Without question, this house is the best of the 6 that we have stayed in over these years. It is spacious, beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean, and fully equipped. Our 3-generation family get-together was made even more memorable by the superlative quality of this property. Now for the negatives, which we list because they can all be corrected easily: 1 - The house is equipped with an ADT alarm system, which unfortunately fired off at about 4 am on the 3rd night of our stay. The rental company was responsive and fixed the problem the next day, which was, as it turned out, an expiring battery in a smoke detector on the third floor. I believe that this kind of problem should be addressed through preventative maintenance, rather than a call from a sleep-deprived renter. 2 - The TV system never worked properly and had to be disabled by shutting off the cable controller. Since we were occupied with many other activities, this was not for us a major issue - however, it might be for another group. 3 - The golf cart charge system did not seem to perform its job of charging the golf cart. We dutifully plugged it in every time we brought the cart back into the garage but there was no indication that charging was happening and toward the end of the week we noticed that the charge level indicator was nearly at the empty position. We were able to use the vehicle as much as we needed to anyway, but it might have been a problem if we had used it more.

This was a bucket list vacation. A family member with cancer wanted all the family together and we did just that, all 30 of us, in 2 houses. We celebrated life, a couple of birthdays and an anniversary. Made wonderful memories.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments and all "five" rating. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Founders Lane with your large family. Great family memories and carefree vacation is what we strive for. The elevator at Founders is helpful with family members who cannot handle stairs. We hope to see you again in Watersound and on Highway 30-A.

Reviewer Comments:

This was the second time we had stayed in this house. The house is beautiful and very clean. However, we arrived to find a tire slashed on the golf cart. It could not be repaired and was not replaced until two full days after our arrival. One of our family is a cancer patient and could not go to the beach because of this. The tire was finally replaced after someone from the chair/umbrella company took pity on us and did it himself. This should be something checked on after each visit. We had ants in the kitchen, which we reported right away. They assured us they would send an exterminator, who never came. We had ordered two umbrellas and four chairs. We were assured they were in place on the beach. We didn't have any chairs or umbrellas for two or three days. For the money spent on this house, I feel more customer service and follow through was needed. We left the house spotless, as we always do. The day after my arrival home, I was called by someone from Royal Beach Rentals about a couple of pillows from one of the bedrooms downstairs. We certainly didn't take any pillows. I thought, mistakenly, that they were calling to apologize for their lack of concern about all the problems we'd had. Obviously, not! However, the house is lovely.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback and comments. We apologize that your stay was not totally carefree and relaxing. We deal with a private beach chair company at Watersound for all beach chair orders and sometimes that can be challenging. Problems do occur and we try to solve them as quickly as possible. The Hub is a new addition to the Watersound area and we hope you were able to enjoy the Highway 30-A area during your stay.

The home was beautifully designed and decorated, and the spa pool was perfect for our young grandchildren. The only feature that could have been better was a little closer proximity to the beach and an ocean view.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback and comments. Founders Lane is a spacious beach house with a carriage house for in-laws above the garage. Watersound is a totally private gated community with sand dunes the size of mountains so you have plenty of peace and quiet to enjoy on the beach. There is a golf cart provided for easy access to the beach. We hope to see you again along the beautiful beaches of Highway 30-A.
