Great family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay here. The house location was perfect, we have smaller children so the proximity was perfect to the beach. The house layout worked great for us and we ended up having extra beds and extra space. Really contains everything you could ever need for a beach vacation and a wonderful time. We plan to come back to Watercolor and hopefully this house for years to come!

House was clean, proximity to entertainment and amenities was great, we could walk to dinner, easy access to the grocery store, just a perfect location. We especially loved the screened in porch. It gave us the chance to be outside with no bugs, enjoy the open air and provide another space to engage in quiet conversation.

Perfect cottage

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect, close to everything. My teenagers especially enjoyed hanging out on the porch swings. The house was kept up well & had any supplies we needed. Watercolor & Seaside were beautiful. I would highly recommend this house.

Quaint. Great location. Perfect family getaway house.

  • 5 of 5

This home has a great location. It's five blocks from dozens of local restaurants and shopping. It's only one block from the beach and Watercolor Inn. Amenities are updated and working just great. The sleeping arrangements were perfect for a large family. Don't hesitate to rent this house if you're looking for great proximity to the beach, swimming pools and restaurants. Owner was responsive.

Fantastic property manager!

  • 4 of 5

We had 6 people, the boys took over the upstairs. Very spacious and beautiful! Our adult daughter loved the guest room. The master bed was not the most comfortable but the lay out of the entire house was perfect. Patrick Ambrose was very available. We plan on booking this house next summer. Thank you!
