The house was wonderful. Clean, organized and perfectly located.

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed several times in Watercolor, and in houses that cost significantly more to stay in. This house was the best of the lot. Centrally located, functioned perfectly, a perfect home base. It was also nice that bikes and beach stuff came with it. I will stay again there when I go back.

Love the House

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. House was awesome close to everything. The bikes were a nice bonus. So fun. The one thing i would recomend is all beds have white sheets and white duvet covers so you feel extra clean ((bed spreads cant be washed) And all beds have a matress cover. Thats it small detail for me as i am a clean freak this would be everything ! 5 stars all the way. Owner very nice !

Close to beach convenient but older home

  • 3 of 5

This cute house is located within walking distance to the beach if that is a priority. It is in the original part of Watercolor, so it is older and could use some updating. Most notably, the downstairs "master" is not really a master. It shares a small bathroom with the entire downstairs, and you feel like you are in the kitchen while using it - not private at all. The oven and stove were temperamental, but other than that, the kitchen was well equipped. While the house sleeps 12, there is only room for 4 people to eat inside comfortably (there are 3 bar stools, but it is very tight to have someone sitting in them while people are sitting at the table), so we had to take turns eating or eat standing up for our meals at home. The furnishings and rugs are tired with some stains. Our group of two families had a really nice time on our vacation, and the house is not terrible at all, but compared to other homes in which we have stayed in Watercolor, it just wasn't quite as nice, and we felt it was a bit pricey for what it was.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us.The written descripltion of the home is quite detailed, and multiple photos clearly show the breakfast room, table and seating. In fairness, should also be noted that nowhere do we advertise sleeping arrangements for 12.

2nd trip to Blue Bird Beach House

  • 4 of 5

We just came back here for a 2nd summer in a row and had a wonderful time. The house was clean and comfortable and the location is perfect being on the beach side of watercolor near seaside amentities. Great for families with children and the bikes are great to have here.

The only unfortunate part of our trip was the wifi and cable was down for several days. This seemed to be a macro issue though as the cable company was laying new, upgraded wiring in. The owner and local management company was attentive to us thru this and worked hard to get everything restored as quickly as possible.

If not for this, it would be a 5 out of 5 for us and we certainly will come back to this house again on our next 30a vacation.
