I love staying in watersound. This paricular place is so pleasant and roomy. Almost forget the wonky 1990s decor.

This rental is located in a gated, planned community. It is quiet, but very friendly and seemingly quite safe-bikes/belongings left outside, even overnight with no problems. It is a large, well appointed studio apartment that sleeps 2 on a comfortable queen bed and has a small accordion-type room divider between the queen bed and a large crib (should you need that). Very responsive temperature controls (a very good thing in Florida!). Plenty of space in the kitchen area and ‘living/TV’ area. Because it is a space above a large garage, there are steep stairs to access it-this wasn’t a problem for us, but we think should be stated for those with mobility issues. Be advised: This is a carriage house attached by a breezeway to the larger main house, that sleeps 10 people. We were only able to book this rental for 4 nights (Sat-Wed) while the rest of our family booked the main house 7 nights (Sat-Sat). It was a little awkward with another couple coming and going steps from our outdoor shower and kitchen window those 3 remaining nights...The main house is allotted 2 parking spaces, and the carriage house rental 1. Small gripe, but there’s no way 3 cars can fit on the property’s driveway without having to expertly park prepared to shuffle cars around to get folks out, or parallel park away from the property. TO BE CLEAR: We LOVED this rental and our time here, but we think it should only be rented in conjunction with the main house, not separately. We WILL look to book this rental again next year, planning well in advance to be able to get it the entire time we rent the main house for! 😊

What’s not to love about this place?? It was absolutely perfect for our stay. My dog joined us and was spoiled by the dog park and walking adventures. He even got to experience the sand & surf! The only drawback was that our trip was cut short due to CoronaPandemic2020. We would most definitely stay here again. THANK YOU!!

Nice carriage house that allows pets. Perfect for a couple that doesn't need more than 1 bed and bath. Enjoyed bringing our dogs on the trip and the short walk to the beach. The beach was great and not overcrowded. We particularly liked the boardwalk through the sand dunes and the fact that there was no steps, which made rolling our beach cart a breeze. The boardwalk is a great spot for pictures.
