Ocean 52 is a family-friendly beach cottage in the Camp District of WaterColor, FL where there is so much for families to see and do.

Ocean 52 sleeps 11 guests (13 with sleeper sofa) and has 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. Each bedroom is spacious, fitted with a flat screen TV, and attached to a private bathroom. First-floor king suite is ideal for anyone who prefers not to climb stairs. It has private access to the screened-in porch and a private bathroom with a dual sink vanity, a jetted tub, a standalone shower, and a private water closet. The second-floor houses a king suite and a bunk room. The bunk room features two twin-over-full bunks and a twin day bed. The final sleeping arrangement in the home is the second-floor loft with a flat screen TV and queen sleeper sofa. This furnished loft also provides a separate space for children to watch movies or for any guest's use.

Downstairs, the kitchen offers granite counters and a center island with barstool seating. It is also appointed with stainless steel appliances including a KitchenAid refrigerator with a freezer drawer, a dishwasher, oven, and 5-burner gas range. The cabinets are stocked with utensils and dinnerware, a starter pack of dish soap is provided, and there is even a coffee pot available to make your morning brew. Meals can be enjoyed in the dining area with a table to seat 8 guests. There is also a large living room with two sofas, three sofa chairs, a flat screen TV, and a DVD player. Plank flooring throughout and beachy decor completes the beach cottage atmosphere.

Guests of Ocean 52 are close to everything in WaterColor! After a great day at the beach, guests can use the home's outdoor shower to rinse off.

Beautiful and well-maintained property, convenient and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Most likely our favorite vacation home of all! We spend every Christmas to NY on the Gulf Coast - from Cape San Blas to Water Color. This house has been our best so far after 15 years and we will definitely return.

"Cozy and Convenient"

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 LOVED staying here for spring break this year! It is just a few houses away from Camp Watercolor with soccer field, pool, basketball court, and nature trails. We rode bikes, swam, played bocce on the lawn, and fished in the lake every day. All of this........ AT the beach! You can't find a more relaxing environment for a vacation. The house was well appointed, comfortably decorated, and conveniently located. We are already missing it.

Beautiful, great floor plan! Too much noise surrounding property though!!

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved this property. It was perfect for our needs. That being said, it was hard to enjoy the wonderful covered porches. This is because the house next door had construction going on, which made it Too noisy to spend time outside on the wonderful porch and screened patio. In addition, the workers were playing music and hammering right outside the master bedroom window and screened in porch. Also, there just seemed to be so many additional workers constantly right beside us on all sides. There were men working on digging and placing some type of cable right beside the rental. This was quite upsetting to my small dog and disruptive to our time outside. I rented this house in this neighborhood mostly to be able to enjoy sitting on the porch enjoying reading my book and spending time talking to my husband in peace and quiet. I looked specifically for a quiet location away from the hustle and bustle.

I would have given this home 5 stars if not for all the noise and presence of so many workers. I felt like I had no privacy. This should have been disclosed to us prior to renting this home. We spent way too much on this rental to have to deal with that nuisance.

Overall we had a good experience. Just wasn't able to get a good night sleep.

  • 4 of 5

The house was in a great location. House was very clean and well maintained. Had all of the necessities needed to cook. The thermostat upstairs was set to 74 degrees and couldn't be changed. It was too hot upstairs to sleep at night. The master bedroom downstairs was too warm at night at 70 degrees. The ceiling fan rattled when on which made it hard to get s good night sleep.

A great location and cozy accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family of 5. It was spectacularly clean when we arrived and had everything we needed. Our teens loved the upstairs loft and turned it into their "hangout spot," while my husband and I enjoyed having the master bedroom downstairs and the screened in porch. The house really does have that cozy cottage feeling, while still being spacious.

We'd love to stay at this home again. They really take care of their guests here...fresh towels, soaps in the bathrooms and kitchen, and even bicycles to get around the gorgeous area!
