We had a great time at this location! The outdoor kitchen is awesome!! We grilled several nights.
The house was just the right size for our family 8. We could have slept 2 more people. The grounds were very private with lots of trees surrounding us. The pool was nice however the finish on the sides and bottom are very rough so we needed aqua shoes so as to not scrape our feet. The outdoor area is just perfect for relaxing and grilling. There’s a outdoor TV for watching your favorite program and a stereo system which sounds amazing! We thoroughly enjoyed being outside. Very comfortable for 8-10 people. I would recommend this property!
Wanderlust is a charming home in the Watercolor neighbhood! Great outdoor pool area!
Wanderlust is a great house! The master on the main floor is particularly lovely; the home's decor is very nice. It’s finest attribute is the outdoor area. Although the pool and attached spa are small, there was adequate space for adults and kids to relax and have fun. The outdoor kitchen area has a large gas grill, two big chiller drawers and an ice machine. The outdoor furniture is extremely comfortable, and the beach umbrellas and chairs that were provided were great quality as well. We didn’t use the amenities at Watercolor, as we preferred the short drive to nearby Seagrove Beach. We rented bicycles and enjoyed cruising through the beautiful neighborhood. It was a quick bike ride to Seaside, as well.
Wanderlust is a family friendly house. We were disappointed that the HVac system was very noisy. Also, first floor had to be kept very cool in order to cool the bedrooms upstairs. The stacked washer/ dryer in a tiny closet was a major inconvenience for us. We had wet swimsuits and towels for seven people, and could only do small loads of laundry.
All in all, our family had an excellent vacation!
Fantastic location and beautiful home & amenities
Everything in the house is set up for a great time - the indoor and outdoor kitchens were fully stocked to cook great meals for our family. The pool and hot tub were perfect, especially the latter as it was unseasonably cold when we visited (nearly below freezing some mornings!). We had plenty of space and easy access to the beach, as well as short rides to all the little towns and shops.
Nice Home - but had issues
We have vacationed in Watercolor for the past 5 years and each time have rented a different home. We chose this particular house this year for 3 main reasons: 1) pool; 2) location; 3) price. The pool by far was the biggest selling point since we'd be sharing the home with another family, both of which have small children. Our intent was to swim before and after the beach each day, the kids were REALLY looking forward to this. When we arrived the pool was as hot as a jacuzzi, an adult could barely get in it, let alone children. The problem persisted for at least the first 3 days of our 6 day stay. We were in contact with the property manager and while being responsive, was not addressing the problem in a timely manner. No pool maintenance company was ever sent out to inspect the equipment and the property mgr was only attempting to adjust the temperature thru some sort of a phone app. She claimed she was contacting the equipment manufacturer as well but never heard anymore about that except for this mere mention. We were never given updates, we had to constantly ask. On the 3rd day we wrote again, informing them the pool is still too hot to swim. The response we got was "WHAT! Its 93 degrees." Somehow we were supposed to be happy the pool had cooled from 106 to 93....you would hardly put small children in a pool at that temperature, especially after a day in the sun. We vented our frustration and even requested the owner extend us some sort of a credit for this inconvenience....It was ignored and has been ignored to this day. We are reasonable people, things break, we get it. It was how the issue was handled that was disappointing, We rented this house for the use of the pool, I want to be perfectly clear. And it couldn't be used for at least half our stay. On top of that we could not get the tv outside working the first 3 days. Instructions were sub par and we later discovered the correct tv remote dead in the wrong drawer. We were told their AV guy was out of town. Sorry, that's inexcusable also...have a backup when he's traveling (yes he called but someone needs to be on site). Outside of these issues it is a very nice house, inside and out. The AV guy eventually showed up and was very pleasant and apologetic also.
Perfect Beach Home
I came here for a weekend get away with my daughter. Because of the layout of this home and the amazing laid-back nature of watercolor I was completely able to unwind.
We had 4 beautiful sunny days at the beach. We grilled outside, swam in the heated salt water pool and relaxed in the hot tub.
We biked everywhere. I loved biking to Almavida to get coffee in the morning with amazing views of the ocean ! My daughter loved their pastries .. The beds were comfy.
The house seemed brand new. But my daughter wanted to spend every waking minute we were not at the beach outside !
We will be back! Wanting to return to Watercolor really soon.
WOW Watercolor and 30A
This was my first visit to the area from California. I have fallen in love with 30A. I could not get over the color of the water here. The restaurants were amazing and stopping in all of the beach towns was fun. Having this home as our base was a sanctuary at the end of each day. Coming home to an immaculate house that had an outdoor sanctuary was the highlight of our day after spending all of our days at the beach and beach club in Water color. We loved sitting in the hot tub, playing board games by the fire by the outside table and watching movies outside. Because the home is neighbored by trees on one side, it is a completely private oasis. We cannot wait to come back and make more family memories.
