It was located within a block or so to where my friends and other family members were staying, so the convenience was important to me. The size was just right for 1 or 2 people, so that worked for me as well and it had everything I needed for the amount of time I spent there. This was the second year my group has come to Water Sound for Thanksgiving and it's always a treat!

My suggestions for improvment and comfort:
1: The left door on the armoire (tv cabinet) would not stay open enough to watch the tv in the sitting room. 2: The mattress isn't very comfortable (I was glad to go home for that reason) 3: There is no where to sit and eat. A small drop leaf table and 2 chairs would be a nice addition
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Susan. We are glad you enjoyed your stay! We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement, and we'll pass your suggestions to the owner for consideration. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

Perfect for a single or couple who need a getaway. Enjoyed the location and beautiful community.

We loved our stay here. You simply cannot beat this location. It's in a private, gated community with access to a pool and walking distance to the beach. It is not crowded at all (even on Labor Day weekend) and could not have been a better experience.

The carriage house was very clean on arrival, Vacasa was very accessible if we had any questions or issues, and getting in and out of the neighborhood was very easy.

Highly recommend this place and will stay here again!

My son and I did or annual beach birthday in Watersound and we could not be happier! Location was outstanding and worked perfectly for a Mother & Son getaway. Two things come to mind that need fixing before others rent. The mini refrigerator and ice maker did not work and the front door lock never locked. Neither of these items bothered us, but they will need addressing for future tenant's that may not be as easygoing. We have boasted continuously to everyone how wonderful our stay was in the Watersound Community and will definitely recommend and return too. Thank you Vacasa for helping make my son's 16th birthday a lifelong happy memory!
Manager response:
Thank you, Runay, for leaving your review for us and choosing to stay at one of our homes. The mini-fridge/ice maker is now working properly, and the front door lock has been taken care of as well. We hope to see you again!

Wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon. Great room and awesome location in the middle of 30a. Close enough to walk to the beach, but quiet and peaceful at night. Could not recommend enough!

It was so convenient to places you didn’t have to get into your car. Bruno’s Pizza awesome!

Quiet neighborhood, fantastic 1 bedroom.

Compact is the appropriate description. Nicely detailed, but no chairs, broken shade, moldy shower. Get rid of the walls and call it what it is... a studio.
Manager response:
Hi, Timothy! Thank you for your review. We do feel the description and photos of the carriage house show very clearly what our guests will be renting. The mold in the shower has been taken care of, and we are in the process of handling the recently broken shade.

We had a wonderful time in this carriage house. It had everything that we could possibly need with the fabulous location.

Great little getaway. Really comfy and clean. Perfect for two...
ROBERT L. Jul 2018
The place is clean and very convenient to a beautiful beach, but there were problems: no table and chairs or counter to eat on, ants all over the floors for 2 nights, AC vents blowing too hard, no hairdryer or broom or adequate dishes and cookware, and crowding in the adjacent house.
Manager response:
We are sorry for the annoyances this guest experienced. Due to the small space there are no chairs, but guests are welcome to eat at the coffee table and couches. We have added a hair dryer and dust pan, and we have relocated some cookware that got mixed up in the big house. Thank you!

Nice clean room. Great area. Powerful air conditioning. Fantastic beach. Perfect for a couple.

The best thing about our stay was the property manger. We had a few issues when we first were trying to find the rental . We were a late check in, it was dark, and it was unfamlier to us. We figured it out on our own after we called Vacasa and no one called back. There were several lone ants in various places crawling around that creeped me out. The freezer was completely iced over, and we couldn't lock the entry door , which really made me nervous. I devised a make shift door lock, killed ants and tried to defrost the freezer. The next morning I called Vacasa, they imediately contacted the property manager. She was very concerned and sincerely upset about our isses, she had every thing righted and compensated us for our troubles. I felt much better after I spoke with her and met her face to face. I would / will stay again.
Manager response:
We are very sorry to see the beginning of this guest's stay was less than desirable and that we missed getting to their needs due to the lateness of the hour. As mentioned, we were able to get all issues addressed in the morning so they are no longer concerns. Thanks!

A larger sofa and a footstool would make the living room more comfortable... but you expect to spend most of your time outside here ... which would have been enhanced with bikes or a golf cart. The construction next door also motivated “getting out”. Parking was difficult to impossible with the construction taking all available spots. Any kind of description of local amenities and attractions would have been helpful. Internet signal was too weak to work.
