A lovely home! Neighborhood very quiet! We really enjoyed the pools! The beds and pillows very comfortable and rooms very quiet. Golf cart was a great addition to the home. Kitchen fully stocked with everything we needed. We really enjoyed the screened in porch. We definitely will visit again!

Awesome vacation home! We had so much fun! Beachwalk came and help us out quickly whenever we had questions. Our only suggestion is to have a few extra blankets in the downstairs area so that we could sit outside at night once the sun went down. We loved it and will be back again soon!

This home was dreamy. It was clean, comfortable, spacious, and tastefully decorated. We really enjoyed the extra amenities included like the bikes, beach chairs, and golf cart. We enjoyed the porch as much as the beach and having a grocery store so close made dinner prep a breeze. I would certainly stay in this home again. Two things need attention but the property managers are very responsive so I’m sure these will be remedied quickly. The third floor has a window unit AC and it quit working but it wasn’t an urgent matter bc we had plenty of room in the home. I notified pm for future guest. The other is that the deadbolts didn’t lock so besides the front entry door, there was no way to lock the home at night. I thought maybe I was missing something but my husband nor my dad could not get the other 3 outside doors to lock. Thankfully this is a sweet and safe little community but that probably needs attention.

Other than a few minor issues that were addressed by management, our family enjoyed the home and all the amenities that The Watercolor resort area had to offer.

We had a great time! House was ready on time and perfect for our family. Beachwalk was available to answer our questions before and after checkin. We enjoyed Camp Watercolor and Beach Club! The beach access was a plus! The use of the bikes and golf cart made it easy to get around the community.

This house was perfect for our family! Quick response to maintenance/AC repair Loved the porch for family time. Golf cart and bikes were so helpful and fun! Excellent customer service. We wish we would have been given a supply list to plan in advance, ie no shampoo or body wash in bathrooms, minimal dish soap, laundry detergent, etc. Also, it would be helpful to have a small trash can in each bathroom.
