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!
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.
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 ....it'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!!
Our family stayed at this home with our dogs and loved the fact we were allowed to bring our pets along. It was difficult to find the perfect house that allowed dogs and we were very careful to take care of this beautiful home. It surpassed our expectations with the large master suite and master bathroom, it was like double the size of our master back home. The master bathroom also had therapeutic jets in the shower and a Airbath Tub which we had never seen before anywhere, it was great after being at the beach all day. The master bathroom alone was like 300 s/f and the master suite we all hung out because it had a private screened porch off of it with a fireplace and we could take the dogs outside from the rear of house. We liked the fact this home was near the Lake District which has the best biking and the house backed up to the Lake so we rode bike every day which were provided by the owner. Then the other porch on front of the home is where we would sit at night to enjoy drinks and it held over 20 guests that we invited over. So for our group it fit the bill. The kitchen was spectacular with Viking appliances and we liked having 2 different sinks to allow more people to prep food and to cook in the kitchen, it was the largest center island we have ever seen as well. All the bathrooms had different marbles and we really liked the Samsung Tvs in each bedroom which were 50" or bigger. Since the kids brought X Box, it was nice they each had their own tvs This home had 2 master suites and lots of beds to accommodate a group like ours. Overall, the location next to the Camp Watercolor was good because we had small children that kept going to the playground and that pool. We also found another park on Red Cedar that was great for playing with the kids. Thank you Linda for helping make this a memorable vacation! We will definitely return to your beautiful home!
We were amazed at this size of this home on arrival with so many outdoor porches to enjoy the great weather. We sat outside to read and watched the bikers and felt like we were living outdoors it was such an unusual home. You could tell this home was custom built with a huge kitchen and amazing hardwood floors that looked very old. Then the house was well furnished and you could tell it was very upper end construction, we loved the old beams and felt that we were staying in a European Home yet at the Beach. But we liked most being close to the Camp Watercolor Pool and parks nearby and large playing field for the kids to play at night. We also fished in the pond, and biked constantly using the owner's bikes. Overall we thought this the perfect beach home because of its gourmet kitchen which allowed us to cook in and not have to eat out our meals. We never wanted to leave this house because of its kitchen, it had so much space to cook, that we just loved the spacious seating areas to play games as well in the dining room. We hope to return each year with our group and for sure this will be our favorite home to stay in.
I have stayed at this home several times and love the fact it is such a gracious home with 200 year old hardwoods and beams throughout and about 2,500 s/f of outdoor living so it feels twice as large for our big group. The kitchen is oversized and can accommodate about 8 cooks and also allows us to watch tv while we cook our meals plus has views of the Marsh of Western Lake. It is directly across from the Camp Watercolor pool and park area where we play sports at night and fish in a pond by the house. It also backs up to the bike trails that lead to the Frog Pool so we could bike to the pools without ever getting in our car. The owner supplied 4 new bikes as well so we did not have to bring down bikes and was very accommodating overall with letting us have our dog stay with us. That was a huge savings to not have to kennel our dog. He could stay outdoors in 2 screened porches which are spacious and they also had 3 fireplaces we enjoyed at night at the home. We also liked the fact there was another private park for our dog to enjoy that was very shaded and we played games outside each night there. Overall we loved the property and we plan to return in the fall for Fall Break.
