Great house, good location

  • 4 of 5

Loved the house, and it's in a great location...only a short walk from the heart of Watercolor and a few steps from one of the community pools. My only two minor complaints are:

1) The bed mattresses in the two master suites are VERY firm. However, Nada at Dune Vacation Rentals helped us with this by bringing mattress pads to the house, and this made a huge difference.

2) Buttercup is a busier street than we expected, and there was a great deal of car traffic on Western Lake Drive (the main street through the back of the community) and Buttercup (which leads directly to 30A).

All in all, we had a great visit and really enjoyed our stay at 144 Buttercup!

Great property that easily accommodated our party of 12. Super convenient to the shopping/dining venues in Seaside and Watercolor. Very close to the beach. Kids loved riding around on the bicycles. Huge front porch swing was fun.

Only negative would be that the kitchen was poorly stocked with basic amenities - no salt or pepper, no trash bags, etc.

A stunning home in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at 144 Buttercup! A group of 12 of stayed for a long weekend for the Seaside Half Marathon and it truly was the perfect size for our large group. There was plenty of room for our group to sit and socialize in the living/dining area, the kitchen was beautiful, and the bedrooms were spacious. Four from our group stayed in the carriage house which was adorable and had everything they needed to stay there comfortably. And talk about location! We were just a few blocks from the beach and the shops in Watercolor, and just a short walk from the heart of Seaside. We were very impressed with the rental agency - we had to call for the wireless internet to be reset, and they arrived at the house within 5 minutes of us calling. We also needed some additional linens after-hours, and once again, the issue was resolved easily and very quickly. We would definitely recommend staying here and our group hopes to return!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful,modern, and comfortable home. It was obviously newly decorated. Our towels were clearly brand new. Large couches and table made it very comfortable for our family and comfortanle new beds. The location was perfect to walk to the beach and a few of the Watercolor restaurants. It helped immensely with my vacation goal of never getting in a car!
