About the property

H2O is the perfect beach retreat with coastal style and luxury amenities. With 5 bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms, the home accommodates up to 20 guests. It also features a private pool, a spacious deck and balcony, and high-quality furnishings. It's lake-front and only a two minute walk from the beach. Located in the gated community of Shipwatch, guests will have access to over 400 feet of private beach they can easily walk to. Guests can make a splash in their own back yard with the private, in-ground pool and cook out on the deck with a grill and plenty of patio furniture to seat guests. The location doesn't get any better than at H20. It's not only close to the beach, but there is a grocery store, convenient store, and the Silver Sands Designer Outlet Mall all within a few minutes' walk or very short drive! There's also bowling, movie theaters, shopping, water parks, goofy golf, arcades and more nearby.

The inside of the home is refreshing with its beach-themed décor and blue and white color scheme. When guests enter the first-floor living areas, they'll be greeted by an open floor plan consisting of a gourmet kitchen, dining area, and living room. The gourmet kitchen is complete with stainless steel appliances, granite counters, and a beautiful backsplash. The kitchen's center island is the perfect meal preparation station or snack space with four bar stools. More formal dining can take place at the large wooden table with bench seating for 8-10 guests. When guests are ready for some rest and relaxation they can enjoy the cozy living room. The living room offers plenty of seating with a sofa, love seat, and two sofa chairs. Children will enjoy the 3 bean bag chairs and a movie on the large flat screen TV. There is a DVD player and a selection of movies provided. Guests can also enjoy free DVD rentals from Five Star during their stay.

There are two master suites - one on the first floor and one on the second floor. The first-floor master is ideal for those with difficulty of traversing stairs, or for those who enjoy the convenience of being near the living areas and pool. The suite is complete with a king bed, flat screen TV, two spacious closets, and an en suite bathroom. The bathroom is spa-like with a soaking tub, dual-sink vanity, standalone shower, and private water closet. The second floor master mirrors the first, but with the addition of a large balcony overlooking the lake.

The rest of the bedrooms on the second floor include two king suite, a bunk room, and a loft with full-over-full bunks. Each of the bedrooms has a flat screen TV and a private, en suite bathroom. The loft is also furnished with a sofa and creates an additional lounging space that can be utilized as a reading space, a space to play board games, or to watch movies. All guests will feel at home at H2O. This home is pet-friendly. Up to two small dogs are allowed with fee.

Additional entertainment comes with the VIP Program. The program is included with the cost of the rental and offers free activities to guests every day of their vacation. With an average of $200/day of free activities, guests will get much more out of their vacation than just travel - they'll also get memories to last a life time.

Very beautiful and well kept property.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at this property. A beautiful community, quick walk through cobblestone community to beach, nice setup on the beach each day. It's also across the street from outlet mall and grocery. The home was impressive, large bedrooms, comfortable beds, just lovely. We had to contact customer service once for something very minor. They responded promptly with a resolution.

Amazing Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Great home to vacation in with a large group of people. Five Star was very quick to address minor issues and helped us book lots of fun activities. We hardly had to lift a finger on our vacation!

Beautiful and spaceous home within easy walking distance of the beach.

  • 4 of 5

The home is beautiful with plenty of space and bedrooms. Management was quick to satisfactorily address minor issues we had during our stay. I think the picture on the website makes the beach look like further of a walk than it was. The walk easy, maybe passed 4 houses when we reached the entrance to the beach. Chairs and umbrellas were always set up and ready for our group. Outside shower attached to side of house was a bonus. Home was close enough to shopping and dining to make them easy to enjoy, but enough off the beaten path that we didn't really feel like we were in a tourist community. 3 things I would highly recommend management consider. 1) The couch and loveseats in the living room are tired and worn out. They should be replaced. 2) None of the bedrooms have a dresser or chest. When renting a house for a week, it's preferable not to live out of a suitcase on the floor. 3) The private bath attached to the hall bedroom upstairs needs some type of shelving. There is nowhere to house shaving and or beauty products. These are easy fixes that would make a fantastic house even that much more fantastic! These suggestions are the only things preventing me from giving a perfect rating.

Absolutely Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family of 20! The peace of mind from being in a private community was wonderful. It was so quiet and peaceful and with the lake being right in our backyard, it was serene. The beach was in walking distance and we were able to let the kids walk there themselves if they wanted since the community isn't as busy. We made some really magnificent memories in this home and hope to return soon!
