You can gather around the picnic table on the screened-in back porch for a meal or watch the happenings on Buttercup from the front porch. An outdoor shower will help to keep the sand outside.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Having never been to Seaside before this trip, was kind of at a loss on where to stay. Can honestly say this house in Watercolor was the perfect location and most darling little house! Extremely clean, quiet, private, secure and very cozy. Loved both the front and back porches. Would have been nice if bikes had been part of the package, but we walked almost everywhere anyway; didn't want to miss a thing! Property management was very professional and attentive, although we only had to call them to get our guest passes for Watercolor Inn access. They were there in a flash. Perfect rental for family of four. We'll be back!

Barefoot review

  • 5 of 5

Great home, very clean and comfortable, perfect location close to Seaside, Western Lake, Watercolor Inn, all within an easy walk or bike ride. Very quiet and peaceful at the house but close to all the shops and restaurants. Great place to unwind and relax but close enough to the beach and pools to jump right into the action. Really enjoyed the whole experience.

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed here a few years ago and were disappointed upon our return with the condition of the home: rotted board in the back walkway, dishwasher wouldn't pull out, uncomfortable mattresses and pillows, poor lighting in bedrooms and living room. The location was perfect but we'll look for a nicer home in that area for next year.

Reviewer Comments:

Barefeet was blissful! We loved every minute of our vacation. What a perfect location in the WaterColor community...a short walk to the Beach Club to enjoy poolside and beach fun, and one block from the Boat House on the lake. We loved paddle boarding and had the Boat House pool all to ourselves. Mid-May weather and no crowds was the best! The cottage was very clean and charming. After reading previous reviews, we brought our own mattress topper for the king bed and also brought outdoor chair cushions. There is an outdoor shower located on the side of the garage as well as an outdoor water faucet. Both made it super easy to wash off, so there was never any sand on the floors. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking, and the furniture was very comfortable. There was also great closet/cabinet space and built-in storage in the bedrooms and bathrooms. Our teenagers loved the bikes and the freedom to explore. With a community curfew for teens, we enjoyed the quiet nights and played lots of board games. We also appreciated Oversees' EXCELLENT response and service when the A/C unit stopped cooling. Oversee dispatched help immediately on a Sunday morning, and the problem was fixed within an hour. Thank you Barefeet and Oversee for a wonderful summer vacation!

Reviewer Comments:

We had an enjoyable stay at this home. It is located between the Watercolor Beach Club pool and the Boat House, but on a quiet street (Buttercup). The home has two bedrooms, one with a king and another with two twins, so it slept out family of four well. It was clean and well maintained, albeit a bit dated - 'off of the appliances and fixtures had an early 2000's feel, although everything was in working order. The furnishings were simple but attractive. The adirondack chairs out front were comfortable but the wicket furnitute in the back did not have cushions. I have only a couple gripes. The first is that the Internet and cable TV did not work the entire time. When we called the Oversee property management staff about the issue, they returned our calls almost immediately (which was appareciated), but the problem was never fixed (Oversee said it was due to an "outage in the area"). It's impossible to know if other homes had this issue (Oversee never said any other houses called with the same problem) but in any event, I'd be prepared to not have Internet or TV. The second issue was the king mattress - it was very cheap and hard, which made for a rough sleep. The two twins were fine though. Overall, though, great location and good house. Would probably stay there again at the right price.

Reviewer Comments:

Loved the location and layout of the house. We were disappointed when we arrived and realized that the back porch furniture (which was made to have cushions) was unusable because no cushions were provided. Time to update the pillows because the ones that were there are lumpy and very uncomfortable and the headboard in the master bedroom was loose and wobbled with the slighted movement. In the kitchen the coffee maker didn't work so we bought a french press to use while we were there and there were no spatulas in the kitchen. With a few improvements this would be an incredible property and I would have rented it for my next 2 trips to the area but as it is now, I won't return.

Owner's Response: Hi Kelly, we are so glad you loved the location and layout of Barefeet. Had you let us know about the coffee maker and spatulas we would have gladly brought some to you. Upon your check out those items were taken care of. We truly hope you will book with Oversee for your next vacation.

Barefeet Cottage in Watercolor

  • 3 of 5

Great location in Watercolor, about 4 blocks from the Beachclub, a very easy and enjoyable walk. The cottage is cute and has a great front porch. Oversee, the management company, was great to work with and they took care of the details when we checked in with extra trash bags, soap, shampoo and laundry detergent which is great because we flew to town and didn't bring those types of supplies.

We arrived and one of the things we were most excited about was the back screened-in porch. There were no cushions on the rattan furniture so I called the rental company to ask where they were and they told us the owner didn't have cushions for that furniture. Are you kidding me? At this price point it is ridiculous to not have cushions on furniture that is made to have at least 4"-5" thick cushions on it. It was extremely uncomfortable to sit in the chairs and every house around us had nice cushions on their rattan/wicker furniture (I walked up and down the block to see if this was typical). The back porch was unusable except for us to put our towels on when we returned from the beach. The king bed wasn't great but what made it worse was the headboard wasn't attached to the frame very well so the slightest movement would cause the headboard to rock back and forth. The pillows were extremely lumpy and very cheap. We had a few friends staying near us and they had very comfortable beds and pillows so we couldn't believe that in a neighborhood as nice as Watercolor, an owner would not take better care of the people who rent this property. We got up the first morning and Oversee had left a package of coffee for us. I filled the coffeemaker with water and added the filter and coffee and it wouldn't come on. I tried everything but the warmer wouldn't even come on so we went to the store and bought a french press. Not one spatula in the entire kitchen but it had a great selection of pots and pans and baking items. The living room TV had a cable box and was easy to use but the master bedroom's TV didn't have a cable box and channels were messed up so it was difficult to find channels which on most weeks wouldn't be a big deal but it was March Madness so we wanted to watch the late games in bed. Wifi was unreliable and made working in the morning frustrating.
