Brand new bike path to the beach!! Newly built bridge over inlet water making the walk to the beach even more beautiful!

As soon as you enter you will be able to see the care that went into selecting each unique piece of furniture and decor from the hard wood floors to the breath taking 1 of a kind paintings throughout the home! The main entrance at On The Pond opens up into a beautiful bright foyer leading either, up the stairs, into the dining room, or down a short hallway to a half bath and the laundry room. The dining room consists of a 1 of a kind glass top table with seating for six. Just beyond is the state of the art kitchen with stainless appliances, granite countertops, and hardwood cabinetry containing all the pots, utensils, and dinner ware you will need to entertain for any occasion! Make your way through the kitchen and past the bar into the warm inviting living room with flat screen tv above a gas fireplace. Just off the living room is the master suite with king size bed, his and hers walk in closets, double vanity sinks, HUGE walk in shower, and a jacuzzi to wash all that stress away! Off the back of the main level you will find a screened in porch with a built in stainless gas grill with countertops on each side as well as another dining table with seating for 6 for those evening BBQ's! As you make your way to the top of the stairs, you will pass by a full bath and then enter an open sleeping area containing a day bed with a trundle roll away underneath, and a bunk bed with a full size on the bottom. Beyond this room you will find 2 queen suites with private baths, each with a walk in shower and 1 with a jacuzzi. The rear balcony may be accessed by either queen bedroom and is equipped with a swing bed and wicker deck furniture, perfect for early morning coffee with a birds eye view of the pond butting up to the rear of the property.

Everything was amazing

  • 5 of 5

The home looks way better then the pics show. Literally, this home had me and my family speechless for a few minutes as we looked around at home nice everything was. As we settled, we took a walk to the beach and the walk was awesome. Beach was private and not busy the whole week, we loved it. We can't wait to stay again.

Reviewer Comments:

Have rented in Watersound for 10 yrs and this house was my biggest disappointment yet. The house was mediocrely cleaned; NO garage access; an under equipped kitchen. The shower hot water was flawed. And I called Sand Dollar five times in one day to get maintenance and no answer and mailbox full.

Reviewer Comments:

This is a very nice house in a very nice neighborhood. We were very pleased and will most likely return. The price was very good too for the size and quality of the house. The neighborhood is very nice and convenient. This is in the WaterSound West neighborhood and not the original WaterSound. You will not have access to anything at the original WaterSound. We were told that they are seperate entities. That wasn't immediately clear from the posting, but I had asked before booking so I understood and it was fine. The pool is very nice so I'm not sure we'd have even gone to the original WaterSound anyway. Also, the beach access, while very nice had a large pond out in front of it that you had to cross before reaching the beach. We were told that we either had to do that or use the closest public access. We got around this fine, but it could be an irritation for some. Hopefully they will have this fixed before we return.

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our stay. We called inquiring about homes in nice, private neighborhoods and that had a private beach access and were told about this home. To be honest, we didn't know what to expect as a lot of ads show properties in their absolute best light BUT we can't say enough about how nice this property was. The lay out is great, the boardwalk in this community is great, everything about our trip was great. Couldn't recommend this enough and we are already trying to figure out our dates for next year.

Very nice house!!

Overall, we were very happy with our stay at "On the Pond". The only complaint I would mention is that the kitchen did not seem very well equipped.
