We had a great time.

  • 5 of 5

The property was very well cared for, and decorated. We usually stay right on the beach so this was a new experience for us, but we really enjoyed the quiet neighborhood, proximity to the pool and short bike ride to beach & Seaside center.

Nice-clean home - description not accurate

  • 4 of 5

We arrived at Watercolor a bit early and the home was available when they said it would be! The home is very clean and almost as described. The upstairs "bunk" room and queen bedroom are NOT connected. We chose this home due to children wanting to stay in the same room. There are 4 bikes and only 3 were usable due to flats or other issues. Therefore, we rented them. We had a handful of teen girls with us and were disturbed that they were upgrading cable in the neighborhood. Our mornings on the balcony were NOT quiet and we didn't appreciate these older workers (around 8-12) around our girls all day.

Our cable was cut off the last 48 hours and tv and internet were not available due to the upgrades. This was a pain. Management was obviously aware and even asked us to let them in. I thought this was a bit out of the ordinary for them to receive the pricing to manage the home but ask the renter to deal with the cable company? Maybe if they offer some form of discount.

They gave us plenty of watercolor passes and the home was filled with plenty of blankets/pillows- the master upstairs is the biggest room. The house is lovely- on the opposite side of watercolor proper but that doesn't bother us!! The owners do a great job decorating and make the home comfortable - 5 stars for them- 3 for management company-

Comfortable, lovely home for Watercolor trip

  • 4 of 5

The home was decorated with a trendy, beachy touch and was comfortable for the 6 adult women on our trip. The porches were fantastic and the kitchen was fully equipped for cooking in. The bar area and wine cooler was very handy. The 4 bikes provided were a great addition (even with a couple being somewhat wobbly.) Dune Realty responded quickly to our requests. This property is a great price but it is not in Watercolor "proper." It is a very short bike ride or walk across the highway in to the main Watercolor area.
