Location to camp watercolor was great and the golf cart was an added bonus for easy access to the beach or Seaside. Plenty of space for our family of six. House was fairly clean and had all necessary kitchen items. Some of the main house areas could have used a dusting. Overall a great family experience, thanks!

We have been coming to the Seaside area since our, now adult kids, were young! Every year is a joy and getting to enjoy our grands these last couple years has made it even better. We enjoyed the beach club access (only a block away) which we could walk to!! Kids loved the pool and the "crab catching" on the beach at night!! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! There are a couple of things we noticed that need fixing/updated: grill needs new burners/tubes, jetted tub access door kept falling off/out, the couch on main floor needs slip covers or replaced (several holes and stains)-of course all of the houses we've stayed in have white furniture which would be really hard to keep clean but does give the room a beachy feel! The deck furniture could use a new coat of paint and new cushions. This, in no way, made our stay any less wonderful but just some things we wanted to share with the owners.

The house was very comfortable. The shower in the carriage was not putting out hot water but once we informed them, it was fixed immediately. I don’t have an issue with the little shampoos. My issue has always been with 2 dw pods & one soap for the washer & really cheap to. So we buy a whole box of dw soap & detergent & tp that is only used for one week. In all the homes we have rented over the years, there is always trash bags & soap. I find it is very cheap of Watercolor to not provide those items. Love the remodeled pools. They are lovely. The food & service at the pools is excellent. Thanks. We have enjoyed Seaside so much over the years but find it is now so overcrowded & do not plan to return. Because of that, it has lost it’s charm.

Overall a great stay and great location- so close to camp watercolor for groups with kids and the golf cart made getting to the beach and other pools easy. Did notice some wear and tear on the house, but nothing that affected our experience. The carriage house was great for a more separate space. We would stay here again (2 kids, 6 adults)

This place couldn\'t have been more perfect. The location is perfect for everything you would want to do for a beach vacation. The house is GORGEOUS!! Plenty of room and a great kitchen to use if you were going to cook your own meals. I can\'t express enough how great this place was. Truly an 11/10 experience for a great getaway.

Amazing stay at this beautiful home. There was enough room for everyone, the beds were comfortable and the kitchen had all that we needed which is all we look for in a vacation home. This house had the added benefit of being steps from the pool, a short golf cart or bike ride to the beach and having multiple cozy spots to curl up with a book out of the midday sun. Loved every second and can’t wait to return.

Property Manager Response:
Malinda, we are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay in WaterColor! We completely agree that this gorgeous home is in a wonderful location and has plenty of cozy spots for relaxing after a long day at the beach. Thank you for staying with 360 Blue and we look forward to hosting you all again soon!

Great location, steps from the camp watercolor pool, and the house was adequate. The kitchen refrigerator was not working but there was a refrigerator/freezer placed in the living room, and we had to purchase our own ice for drinks.There were 4 of us staying in the house. Beds were very comfortable and huge closets. Master shower is amazing! The other full bath in the house is shared between the other two bedrooms, which would be a lot of people for that one bathroom if all of the beds were filled. Bikes were great. Walking & biking to seaside was a favorite activity. The garage doors are extremely narrow so we weren’t comfortable pulling our SUV in, and parked out front. Definitely need bathroom products right from day 1, there was one small hotel sized bar of soap for the 2 sinks & shower in the master so off to the grocery store soon upon arriving. 360 Blue has definitely cut back on the amount of products provided in a house compared to previous years. (No lotion and shampoo and body wash were tiny.)

Property Manager Response:
Elizabeth, we are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay in WaterColor! We certainly agree that this lovely home is in a great location and there is nothing better than being able to walk and bike to Seaside! We sincerely apologize for the issues with the refrigerator and freezer that you encountered and we are happy to report that a new fridge is being installed. We are so sorry that you were unsatisfied with the bathroom products that we provided. Per our policy, we provide a starter kit with soap bars, shampoo, and conditioner, for each bathroom and then we allow our guests to supply any additional items they need. Again, we apologize that there were some aspects of your stay that were not of the quality you expected. We appreciate you staying with 360 Blue and we hope to see you again!

We had a excellent stay this weekend (last week of September). The house is immaculate and just steps away from the newly renovated Camp Watercolor pools. We had a great time over the long weekend just exploring all the local sights and restaurants. The house is perfect and we can't wait to come back and visit again.

Property Manager Response:
What a beautiful photo Raj! Thank you for sharing! We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay in WaterColor. We absolutely agree that this home is in a great location for walking over to Camp WaterColor to enjoy the awesome pools. Thank you for staying with 360 Blue. We hope to see you again soon!
