EXECUTIVE ACCESS: WaterColor guests staying at this 360 Blue property have complimentary access to 5 award winning community pools, the use of two kayaks or canoes for one hour per day, as well as 20% off stand up paddle boards at the WaterColor Boathouse and, for an additional cost, limited tee time access to award winning Shark's Tooth and Camp Creek Golf Courses, 20% off daily or weekly passes at the WaterColor Fitness Center and 2 tennis courts at both WaterColor and Shark's Tooth Club.?

DETAILS: This luxury 30A vacation rental was built from the ground up to easily accommodate 4 different families simultaneously while offering flexibility and comfort. The owners of Above & Beyond have been renting beach houses in WaterColor for over a decade. Struggling to find the ideal WaterColor beach house for their large group of friends & family, they decided to build a home from scratch that would meet all of their needs.

This home is located directly across the street from the WaterColor tennis courts on a safe cul-de-sac known as Dandelion Drive. In the back of this luxury 30A beach house, guests will love the negative-edge infinity pool and sitting spa that backs up to the Western Lake nature preserve offering both lake and forest views with no obstruction for hundreds of feet in all directions. Imagine the solitude and privacy as you unwind from a day at the beach. Just head to the 4th floor cupola located 60' above sea level at the highest elevation in WaterColor with a glass of wine and you can capture an ocean view as the sun sets to the west. Finish the day in the owner's bedroom that features a giant 10' by 8' wet room featuring concrete walls, a relaxing tub and multiple shower heads. You deserve it!

In the evening, gather in the company of friends and family in the largest main living room in WaterColor at 56' feet long! The spacious living room opens up to a gigantic 20' x 40' screened-in patio featuring an outdoor cooking area and fireplace right next to the pool. This large entertainment area can seat over 20 people for dinner so that the entire group can eat together without having to split up. Right off the patio, you'll find the private heated pool with 2 in-pool layout chairs and the big negative-edge sitting spa.

The carriage house is one of WaterColor's largest at well over 1,000 sq ft, featuring a full kitchen, laundry room, king suite, loft bedroom with 2 queen size beds and a queen pull out in the living room. The carriage house is connected directly to the main house on the 2nd floor, and it also has a private entrance via stairs.

With 2 full kitchens, 5 expansive porch spaces, a private elevator, an infinity edge pool and sitting spa, the largest carriage house in WaterColor, the largest living area in WaterColor, an outdoor grilling station, ping pong, foosball, and more, this house truly lives up to its name and goes “Above and Beyond”.

We had a great time at above and beyond! The house was perfect and we loved the location and watercolor. One piece of feedback for 360 Blue is to include information about the beach chair rentals. We were surprised to learn that beach chairs were available on a rental basis at the Beach club. There weren’t any chairs available to bring to the beach at the house.

Love LOVE this gorgeous house!

Love LOVE this amazing house! Every detail is extremely well planned, beautifully decorated, and so very comfortable! Our favorites included hanging out in the pool and hot tub, lounging on the back patio by the fire and watching movies at night, bike rides through this family friendly community, and of course the beach. We appreciated having the golf cart to take to the beach and to the local shops and restaurants. So many fun memories made; this property truly went Above and Beyond to make our stay memorable and fun! Thank you!!

We were lucky enough to be able to stay at Above and Beyond for a much needed girls trip. The house is not only absolutely beautiful and immaculate, but every single detail was stunning. Expansive and comfortable for both larger parties and more intimate ones like ours (8 girls), it met every single one of our expectations plus so much more. This was a 5-star experience that will be treasured always. 360 Blue was fantastic .... All of the requests and details that I asked for and planned prior to our arrival were met seamlessly and it made our arrival and stay even more amazing. The owner of this house got it right.....Above and Beyond. ❤️

We had a wonderful time on our vacation. Our second trip and looking forward to many more. The house was just phenomenal. Just beyond beautiful. There were 14 of us and we had plenty of room. Thank you to the owners for your kind hospitality and for sharing your beautiful home. We will remember this vacation forever. Thank you again, Arlene Smart

Our Gettinger family reunion at Above and Beyond couldn't have been in a more perfect home and location. We all couldn't be together every night because our family flew in from all across the United States. I really never wanted to leave the house you can be alone in a private nook or together with the bunch. When you hit the bed you sleep like a baby the beds are fantastic in every room. We hope to come back next year to this unbelievable home. Bring Tp, dishwasher soap, laundry soap, dish soap other than that your covered. The fishing trip topped off our visit. Thank you for sharing - D.E.

Thank you so much for choosing 360 Blue for your family's beach vacation. We look forward to becoming a family tradition!

WOW! From start to finish the best beach experience ever! The team at 360 Blue was so cheerful, patient and helpful, often anticipating our needs even before we were aware of them. Our family of 6 (parents and 4 kids) and has evolved into 5 families, consisting of 10 adults and 4 children. Finding the perfect space for us had become quite a challenge but the search is over. 161 Dandelion is our perfect place and is designed in such a way as to meet our needs for years to come. The owner thought of everything and apparently is quite talented in design. The layout of the living space and the incorporation of the indoor and outdoor space is incredible. The folding doors from the living room to the fully screened porch are pure genius! The porch also provides a view of the pool. Everyone can be together without being on top of each other. I could go on forever about all of the details that make this home so wonderful but I will just say you must see it to believe it. I am grateful to the owners for sha

I\'ve been renting vacation homes in Watercolor for years, and \"Above & Beyond\" lives up to its name. The house is absolutely stunning and brand new. It\'s also the largest luxury beach house we\'ve rented, and it easily accommodated our entire group! Everything about it was perfect especially the location. Giant bedrooms. Amazing pool. Beautiful views. Incredible design. I could go on. I highly recommend Above & Beyond. LOVE IT!

A truly amazing vacation home. From the overall feel of the home to the hundreds of thoughtful details, it made for an incredible vacation for 5 couples for a week. With large bedrooms and multiple living areas, each couple had space for themselves when they wanted it, and with the large downstairs living area that joins with the outdoor space, we had more than enough space for the large group to hang out. We also enjoyed the pool and spa, and taking the golf cart to restaurants and the beach club. The house also has bikes for use, which was a lot of fun as well. We didn’t even use the third floor or the lofts, which would have been great if we had brought our kids. We are planning to return this fall and are very much looking forward to it. It was really hard to leave!!!
Manager Response:
Sounds like everyone had a truly incredible stay! This beautiful home has some many small touches that take it to the next level of rental homes. Every detail has been considered. We are looking forward to having you back in the fall!

For the past 10 years, we\'ve rented large beach houses all over 30A, but this luxury Watercolor Beach House is by far our favorite. The location is perfect on a kid friendly cul d\'sac on the all-important south side of Western Lake. The house is huge. And I mean huge. It sleeps 20 people without any problem, and has parking for several vehicles. The view out the back is of Western Lake and you cannot see another house. Only trees and water. It has the biggest screened in patios we\'ve ever seen. The carriage house is also incredible. You can see the ocean from the 4th floor tower. And wow, that pool was perfect. Overall, we highly recommend this property for a large group looking for a house that goes \"Above and Beyond\". Thanks!!! We can\'t wait to come back.
