A Little Overboard is "over the moon."

  • 5 of 5

The property is truly a luxury home, and our 5 grandchildren and their parents raved about all its features when we set eyes on it and walked through. There was plenty of room to spread out, and everyone seemed to stake out their favorite spots. My husband could be found in the watch tower (anytime he went missing) with its beach views. On our first walk to the beach, we were truly amazed at the huge dunes that protect WaterSound. It is a special place.

We enjoyed the community pool, but the children surprisingly preferred the splash pool at the house. The bikes provided gave the children the freedom to ride around the WaterSound community, and we felt comfortable letting them do that. The golf cart was very handy helping us get all our beach "stuff" down the boardwalk a ways, and I drove it to the Puttering Park to play a round with my 13-year old golfer.

The kitchen is in a whole other league, and I enjoyed using the best appliances out there - especially the Wolf stovetop with its built-in griddle and warming drawer (for morning stragglers who expect their breakfast ready and waiting ;). My husband and I loved having the carriage house to escape to or turn in early if we didn't want to play "one more round" of a game. Our time there in WaterSound could not have been better, and we look forward to experiencing some magical family time again there next summer. Many thanks to Elena and her associates.

Love, Love this house and Community!

  • 5 of 5

This is the best house for a large family with kids to stay in. It is walking distance to a pool and beach. The golf cart that came with the house was an added plus! This community is so quiet and family oriented! Definitely would recommend this house to families!

Wonderful week at Watersound, fantastic home!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 8 adults and 2 children had a wonderful vacation at Watersound Beach and everyone loved A Little Overboard! The home is beautiful, well furnished and extremely well stocked with everything that we needed. We cooked several meals and we were very happy with the variety and the quality of cookware and serving pieces. The kitchen is fantastic, truly a joy to cook in. It was great to have such a large table where we could all sit together for meals and games. Everyone adult in our party had a king bed and their own bathroom, which is important to us.

The house was very clean and the mid-week cleaning service was very much appreciated. We received advance communication from Sunburst Beach Vacations anytime a service provider was coming to the house and everyone that we interacted with was pleasant and professional. We had a problem with wi-fi availability a few days into the stay and it was quickly addressed.

One of our favorite things about the house was the abundance and variety of outdoor space. From roasting marshmallows in the fireplace on the patio, napping on the porch bed or enjoying a glass of wine on the main floor porch - we enjoyed all of the outdoor options. Outdoor furnishings were all high end comfortable. The pool/spa is very small but nice for an afternoon dip and the kids loved it.

Another important amenity for our family is a golf cart. It was great for carrying everything to the beach each day and the kids loved to ride through the community in the evening. This was our second stay at Watersound and our favorite house! As Watersound is still being built out, there is still a lot of construction in the community, including immediately across the street from A Little Overboard. While we could hear construction sounds during the day, it wasn't a problem for us and all of the outdoor spaces were very private. Additionally, all of the construction crews are respectful to visitors and stop work around 5:00 each afternoon.

Thank you for sharing this beautiful home and thanks to Sunburst Beach Vacations for professional and responsive service. We hope to return next year
