Beautiful home, great location, perfect for families!

  • 5 of 5

Great setting. Really nice and comfortable home. Fully equipped. Lots of TVs but we had so much fun, we never turned them on. Huge kitchen - perfect gathering space. Numerous Big outdoor decks that would be great 👍?🏻? In cooler weather. Close to great nature trails, pool, just minutes from the beach. Great AC keeps house cool in hot weather. Loved it

Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home. We enjoyed the spaciousness of the interior and porch areas. We would definitely stay here again. The kitchen was a fantasy come true for a family that loves to cook like ours. All the bedrooms were spacious. There was one of the bedrooms did not have a TV as advertised, but otherwise everything was as listed.

Owner's Response: Thank you for being so kind and appreciative of our Watercolor Vacation Home. It is indeed a fantastic kitchen, having 4 sinks to work at is a pleasure along with the enormous island to prepare and serve food to large groups and high end appliances. We think also the location is important next to the Camp Pool and Huge Soccer field and Frog Pool as well and Boathouse Pool, all 3 pools are just a short walk away. Thank you again for your review!

Terrific house, Pleasant and helpful owner

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the house. It is perfect for a big family with each bedroom having its own bath. The management of the property could use some improvements as there are some details you have to learn as you go. When we arrived the parking passes and Watercolor passes that were in the kitchen were weeks old. We were denied entry at the pool the first day we went. After a call to the owner we discovered where the new ones were hidden. There was no high chair in the house which we were counting on. There is no queen pull out couch, however, after a call to the owner we discovered that there were 2 new memory foam mattresses that were quite comfortable. After straightening a few small issues out, we were able to settle in and enjoy our stay.

Owner's Response: We were so sorry about hidden passes you found under the front door mat dropped off by Security and then the new mattresses in Master Closet we added to house were indeed there for your stay. I have ordered another High Chair and saw it had arrived in corner of foyer in box. I am so sorry you did not locate it before you left. Overall, I know Watercolor is a stickler for having passes with you, we really apologize you had such a situation arise and now the Maids are to put passes on foyer table, not under front door mat. You are so kind to write a review and allow us to know how to do a better job for future guests! Thank you so much and we hope you will return to Watercolor for another family vacation again soon.

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
