We loved our stay in this beautiful home. It’s location is good for those who want to be in a quieter neighborhood and don’t mind that it’s a little distance from the action. The golf cart And bicycles made it very workable for my family of seven. The kids enjoyed the private pool and made good use of it. We had a great vacation to watercolor/seaside and would definitely consider renting this home again.

Totally recommend this house. The amenities were exactly what we were looking for - pool, bikes, golf cart. The quiet court location suited our group well. We weren't looking to be in the 'fray.' Our kids loved the bunk room. Can't wait to come back.

Our 3rd "Annual" Family Beach Trip is now over and has left us with PRICELESS MEMORIES of Fun Times Together...as our Family continues to Grow; so does our need for larger homes to rent. We loved being at 650 East Royal Fern Way. The home was perfect for us and everyone agreed it was a great choice for this year. We were delighted with the quiet location, liked sitting on the front porch in the mornings. Having the morning sun on the pool was a big plus! 360 responded quickly to our request for help with the spa & pool. Camp Watercolor was a hit with our Grandchildren AND adult children, too! We will be back. Nana & Papa T Rex Roswell, GA

The house was very big and beautiful. The rooms were very spacious. Having a private pool was awesome. The only thing I didn’t like was that the house didn’t seem like it was cleaned well before our arrival. The counter tops were dirty/sticky and there was some trash in the trash can. The pot holders had dried food on them and the white slip covers in the living room were so dingy and brown/ stained which kinda grossed me out to sit on. I understand these things aren’t easy to wash between guests but it was a little concerning. Also, a few hours after being there, my toddler’s socks had turned completely brown/black from the floor being so dirty. Overall, it was a good vacation and we did enjoy this house and the convenience to everything in Seaside.

Property Manager Response:
We are so sorry to hear that your stay with us was anything less than five stars. Unfortunately, we do occasionally make mistakes and do not come across every issue in each home and therefore rely on our guests to alert us to anything troublesome so that we can make every effort to correct any issues you come across during your stay. Again, we apologize and we do hope that you will consider 360 Blue in the future.

Perfect for the whole family to stay! Enough room for everyone to have space. The kids loved the bunk bed room. The private pool was nice to relax in and when you did not feel like making it to the community pool. The golf cart made it convenient for running to town, Publix, or anywhere in the community. We parked our vehicles and had everything we needed in the area. We will definitely come back.

Property Manager Response:
Rachel, we are thrilled that you and your family found this beautiful Watercolor home to be a perfect fit for your vacation! We completely agree that the golf cart is a huge perk and makes it that much easier to commute around the area! Having the pool to yourself is the best when you need a relaxing moment! Thank you for your amazing feedback! We hope to host you again soon!

Our vacation was perfect! This is a great home that is beautifully appointed and decorated with all of the necessities and then some! The location is ideal, at the end of the street with fewer neighbors and homes on larger lots. The bedroom layout worked well for our family. We actually only used two bedrooms of the four bedrooms in the main house… The master on the main and the bunk room for our three kids. All of the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable with above average mattresses and bedding. The home is in incredibly good condition. The pool and golf cart were family favorites that made this trip special. The management company, 360 Blue, is pretty amazing too. I have never had such prompt, professional, and courteous service from a vacation rental company. The couple of minor issue we experience during our stay were addressed immediately. The concierge services they provided were excellent as well. I would recommend this home to anyone interested in a Watercolor vacation. We will be back!

Property Manager Response:
What a great photo of the kids enjoying the private pool! Thank you for sharing! We are so thrilled that you all enjoyed your stay with us in Watercolor! We completely agree that this home is the perfect spot to get together and make lasting memories, and between the quiet location and golf cart, it's a tough one to beat. We love to hear that 360 Blue exceeded your expectations and we love that you were able to take advantage of our concierge services! We strive to do everything possible to make our guest enjoy a relaxing vacation! Thank you for choosing 360 Blue, we hope to see you again soon!

Loved our stay in this lovely home! It’s a bit away from everything which makes it private and quiet, but the included golf cart makes it so easy to get around! We loved every minute of our time here!!

The house was beautiful. Location was great. The Carriage House needs a King bed instead of a sofa bed. The kitchen needs to be better stocked for cooking. The family room needs a bigger TV. The fuses for the golf cart headlamps were missing, so we couldn't use the cart in the evenings.

Property Manager Response:
We are so glad that you enjoyed the home for your vacation with us in Watercolor! We agree that this home is in a great location to enjoy the community! We apologize for the golf cart and lack of kitchen amenities and will be sure to share this with our entire team. Thank you for your feedback and staying with 360 Blue, we hope to see you again soon!

Wonderful family get together in a beautiful house that was so warm & inviting! Decor is amazing and the pool was a great hit with the grandkids. Adults enjoyed the screened in porch. We had plenty of room for 12 with the carriage house being a bonus. Neighborhood is peaceful making bike riding so fun. Gorgeous beaches are just a short golf cart ride away.

Our time in the area was awesome and the house was a big part of the overall experience! Love the location and the home was near perfect. We unfortunately had some pool issues that didn't get resolved until we were on our last day, but I know the 360 Blue team tried to resolve the matter and the appropriate refunds are in process. The house was very new, even had that new house smell! We had nine in our party, and my mom enjoyed staying in the loft above the garage. Perfect getaway for her. I hope to rent this house or another similar with 360 Blue next time. By the way, I love the app! And the golf cart came in handy!

Property Manager Response:
