Sleep arrangements okay, but not comfortable living

  • 3 of 5

We booked this house last minute when we discovered that repairs had to be extended at our home. The owner was very cordial and easy to work with and we truly appreciate that it is pet friendly. The rooms were spacious and each had their own bathroom. The upstairs living area featured a kitchen with plenty of pantry storage and well stocked with cooking utensils and silverware. The huge island was almost too big and the fact that it (and the countertops) were marble meant that we had to be very careful with hot dishes. The big dining table had a centerpiece that would be better as a lazy Susan. The breakfast nook had a bench that was difficult for sitting. We appreciated the big flatscreen TV but the coax hanging in the air was a little unsightly.

The bikes were in poor shape, thus we rented newer ones.

We love Watercolor

  • 3 of 5

Great location for walking dogs and super

close to Camp Watercolor. House has great porches and more than ample space. It's design was a bit of a surprise and awkward having the kitchen and community area on the second floor. We've had a great week in Watercolor.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a nice review, the kitchen and main living space is on second floor to take advantage of the views of the Marsh from the rear porches as well as the Community from the 2,000 sf of porches this house enjoys. So, it is actually quite common in Watercolor if there is a view to have all living space up top, then the bedrooms are on bottom floor to make it more accessible to pop outside quickly with the dogs and kids. I barely go to my kitchen on 2nd floor unless I am cooking dinner, so I enjoy not climbing steps to the Laundry Room and main Bedrooms. Many guests choose also to eat out their meals, so the Reverse Plan works well for them. I hope you return with us again! Karen Geiger, Owner

Perfect Family House

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 families on our trip, perfect amount of living space for large dinners and relaxing at the house. Has everything you need in the kitchen for just about anything you would like to cook. Great patios/porches to enjoy. We had a great time and would definitely stay here again.

Second stay as good as the first!

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's second stay in 6 months at this beautiful Watercolor home & just as we did the first time, we LOVED it! The home is very spacious & has everything you need to make your stay at the beach enjoyable. The bikes are wonderful to take you to & from the pool and/or the beach or if you want to just ride around the community. Linda is so easy to work with & always calls or emails back promptly. We are looking forward to many more visits!

Wonderful Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

The home is absolutely beautiful, and is located in an ideal location of Watercolor. The kids were able to enjoy the park and the pool. We went to the beach everyday and it was amazing. The trails provided the perfect t landscape for early morning runs. I highly recommend this home for a vacation get away.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you loved our private residence and enjoyed the great location to the Camp Watercolor and the myriad of Bike Trails that are behind this house leading into the Lake District. The many parks surrounding the home are wonderful for the dogs and kids to play, and overall it is a perfect spot to retreat and rest with your family. Thank you for sharing your review and we hope you will return to stay again soon.

Beautiful Home! Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with Watercolor! This house was amazing with the best of everything! Custom, custom, custom! Owner was fantastic! House was spotless! We were so pleased we could bring our 2 Shih tzu dogs with us! My 3 boys had a blast! The neighborhood is so quaint's like a page out of a fairytale! Cars only go 15 mpg...yield to all pedestrians and folks biking! Gorgeous trees & views every way you turn! It was too hot to use the many screened in porch or fireplaces. But this would be wonderful in the fall and winter! With all the violence in the world today....this place is truly a getaway from the hustle n bustle...the negativity...etc. Its a place of relaxation, scenery...where people are respectful of each other. These pictures do not do this home justice. It surpassed my expectations and I'm a total travel snob. I did not want to leave. Can't wait to return next summer and every summer from then on!! Thank you for a wonderful family vacation!!
