Thank You High Cotton!
Dear 146 Sandy Creek Circle,
Our week at High Cotton was phenomenal! My friends and I loved the kids bunk room, and the heated pool was super nice as well. The best part about this house is the treehouse. My friends and I slept on the swinging beds almost every night! The kitchen island was so big that all 7 of my friends could sit at once! Another thing that was cool was the location of the house. It was an easy bike ride over to the pools and the beach. The last thing that I thought was cool was the speaker system. We could listen to music in all of the main rooms of the house. And by the way Publix is not to far away. (All the parents loved it as well)
Sincerely, Presley Pyle (age 11)
Presley, we are delighted you guys loved the sleeping porch. It’s our favorite room too. P,ease come again, you are always welcome!
This review is from twin 9 year old boys...
This house made us have a super fun vacation. It has a pool and the water was really warm even though the air was cold on some days. The pool has fountains and lights at night time and the lights change colors. We had two favorite places. We loved the porch with swinging beds and the living room just for kids. Both places were good to play ipads and get away from boring grown up talk. The table in the kitchen was perfect for playing Skip-Bo (big so we could all play). The chairs at the counter are cool because they are clear, so it is like you are sitting in mid air. Also the house is big and we were never squished with so many people staying there. We could ride bikes in the cul-de-sac and it wasn't busy like some of the other roads. Plus it is close to the beach. Our two words for this house are-amazing and sweet.

The Perfect Home in Watercolor
I have rented homes in Watercolor for many years and this is by far my favorite. We did a girls weekend with a big group and it was perfect! Everyone had their own space with each bedroom having their own bathroom and yet the home still had a cozy and intimate feel. The house is in immaculate condition (well-maintained and organized) and the owner is accessible, reliable, and truly cares about your stay. I would most definitely recommend this home to anyone looking to stay in the Watercolor area!
Delighted to have you ! Please come again.
Simply Amazing describes this home, the amenities, the owner, and the area!!! This home is EMACULATE and is the perfect home for either a family or "grown up" trip. From the amazing kitchen (equipped with anything you could possibly need), to the 4 unique porch areas, to the outside pool/grill area, to a third floor that is perfect for kids to claim their own space, to the fact that every bedroom has its own bathroom...this home is perfect. The owner is quick to respond and truly wants to make sure you have a great place to spend your vacation. The home is located in a cul de sac and has little traffic. Both the front and the back of the home are very private. I really cannot say enough good things about our stay...I booked our next stay before we left. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PROPERTY!!!
Looking forward to having you back again next year!
Definitely our favorite house ever!! Absolutely magical, and every single detail thought out to make our stay so special!!! We were always comfortable, and each room was just perfect! Plenty of porches to enjoy, and the pool was a real treat...we used it every day! We have been coming to Watercolor for years, and have stayed in some fabulous houses, but this one definitely wins first place!!! Thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home.
Thank you Leslie, we hope you make it an annual tradition!
