Love the Watermelon House! Beautifully decorated! It has such character, blending original features with a gorgeously remodeled kitchen with top of the line appliances and bath with walk in shower. Great bed! And, the TV is bigger than mine at home! We will be back.😊

We were so impressed with the Watermelon House. Charming and beautifully remodeled. Very comfortable beds, lots of thoughtful extras like a big flat screen tv and beach chairs. Close in to Seawall and beach, good restaurants nearby or within a short drive. Will return!!!!
