All have scenic views of the Gulf of Mexico.

DETAILS: "The Cottage on Scrub Oak" is just what discerning guests are looking for in a beach vacation with a beautifully furnished 4-bedroom/4-bath home on a charming, quiet street with nature rather than neighbors behind the home. This home is convenient to all Watercolor amenities and the beach, especially with a 6-seater golf cart and 4 adult bicycles!

Off the front porch, you're just steps from the kids' favorite—the "Frog Pool." Out the back door, you'll find peaceful nature trails. A short walk or bike ride to the left will take you to the tennis center and path into Seaside. Take a right out the back of the home, and you'll be heading towards the Boathouse on Western Lake for fishing, YOLO, or the pool, then on to the Beachclub pool and beach. Kids of all ages absolutely love riding in a golf cart — a fun outing to Camp Watercolor or maybe pizza for dinner? And easy for the grocery store!

Back at The Cottage, relax on either of the 2 large screened-in porches overlooking the beautiful private pool and the nature area beyond the back gate. Settle into comfy couches by the beautiful shell fireplace in the open concept main living area. A gourmet kitchen with gas cooktop and huge dining table to seat 8 plus 4 barstools at the counter. Gorgeous, unique walnut hardwood floors. An oversized laundry room, a cute bunk room for the kids to claim as their own, and TVs/WiFi in every bedroom. All of this plus little Mom touches like books, board games, and puzzles. All you need to do is bring the family ready for fun and relaxation.

Great house!!! Loved the screened in back porches, especially the one off main living area with porch swing - we were out here every morning and evening. Nice to have Sonos to play our Spotify here. We had 3 generations of gals from our family celebrating Mother’s Day 2021 and this house was lovely for the occasion. Having a bedroom on first floor great for Grandma was appreciated. Loved the hot tub too!!! Will definitely stay here again.

The house was perfect for our family to get together for Christmas!! We liked that the living room, kitchen and dining room were all open to each other, the pool was so relaxing and the golf cart was great to have and took us any where we wanted to go! There are trails right behind the house which we were on daily and it was a quick bike ride to Watercolor beach club and Seaside. The home was well equipped with everything we needed and especially the Kitchen for our holiday meals! This home will always be a part of our Christmas holiday together and we will be back!!

Property Manager Response:
What a beautiful photo, Kim! Thank you so much for sharing. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay in WaterColor. We certainly agree that this beautiful home is perfect for gathering together to celebrate the holidays and the pool is such a fun bonus! Thank you for staying with 360 Blue. We look forward to seeing you all again soon!

Our entire family met here from all different parts of the Country for a New Year’s Eve celebration - 6 adults/3 Kids. My daughter has been coming to WaterColor every summer. The house is beautifully decorated, comfortable and the location is great. It was clean upon arrival and had the all comforts we could need during our stay. The fireplace was amazing and we spent time working a puzzle on the large table in the family room. The pool and golf cart were wonderful amenities - when they were working, both were not upon arrival. Notes: - The bedroom downstairs does not have a closet. - The toilets in all the rooms upstairs needed to be plunged a lot. - The fireplace was not working upon arrival. - The pool/hot tub can only be heated to the same temp so it is really just a pool. We couldn’t control turning off the jets/ lights so it ran constantly which was inconvenient. - Golf Cart was not working and the replacement one provided broke down in Seaside. - The is no Big Green Egg like mentioned in the listing.

Property Manager Response:
What a great photo, James! Thank you for sharing. We are so sorry to hear that your stay in WaterColor was anything less than five stars. We absolutely understand how frustrating it can be to run into issues while on vacation but we appreciate you allowing our team to come out and fix the fireplace. We apologize that the replacement golf cart we provided also broke down when you were in Seaside and we are working on fixing the original house golf cart. Again, we sincerely apologize that your stay was not of the quality you expected. We appreciate you staying with 360 Blue and we hope you visit the area again!

Our entire family of 7 adults stayed at this home while we were here for a wedding. The house was perfect, we loved having the golf cart and bicycles. While it was too cold to use any of the pools, we enjoyed having the fireplace in the living room to gather around. We would definitely rent this home again!

Property Manager Response:
Teresa, we are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay in WaterColor. We absolutely agree that this home is just perfect and the living room fireplace is such a fun spot to gather in the cooler months. Thank you for staying with 360 Blue and we hope to see you all again soon!

We really enjoyed our stay at Scrub Oak! This is our 4th annual family vacation to Watercolor and this close to being our favorite house. It was very comfortable and family friendly. We loved the totally open floor plan for the dining table, kitchen and family living area. This area was adjacent to the screened porch which opened directly to the pool! This really made for a super easy and convenient living space for the entire family. we LOVeD that the house had its own golf cart so one less thing to reserve. We used it a lot to go to the beach at WC and the new lazy river pool. Overall it was an excellent vacation home and it might be our first repeat house at WC. Things to note when renting the house— the kitchen is a gallery kitchen so can seem a bit small. Also although there are 4 very nice bedrooms ( the master is very nice with its own screened porch ) , however the downstairs bedroom is really meant to be a living space as there is no closet and the bathroom is very small. Recommend this stay!

Property Manager Response:
We are thrilled you had such a wonderful vacation in Watercolor! We agree- the home is beautiful and having the golf cart is so nice to get around the community with! We are so happy you chose to stay with 360 Blue and we hope to see you back at the beach again soon!

Thank you 360 Blue and the homeowners of "The Cottage on Scrub Oak" for an amazing vacation. We had our entire family of 2 children with spouses and a 1 year old grandchild. The home was wonderful as we all enjoyed the pool but the most important was the golf cart and the bicycles. So conveniently located to everything you would need. We also enjoyed the lazy river and all the other amenities that were available. 360 Blue was so easy to work with and accommodating to our needs. Thanks again for a great family vacation.

Property Manager Response:
We are so excited that you enjoyed your stay in this amazing home. We agree that the home sits in a great location and the lazy river is a great spot to come together to enjoy wonderful moments! We are happy to hear that you had a positive experience with 360 Blue and we hope to see you again soon!

Our family had the best time at this cottage! The house was beautiful and cozy and well appointed. Our favorite part of the property was the screened in porches and the heated pool. Our kids loved swimming and it was nice that they could swim while we ate dinner outside. The location is my favorite in Watercolor - - a peaceful and quiet neighborhood right next to the beautiful wooded bike paths and just a quick bike ride to the beach over the boathouse bridge. The golf cart was great to have for trips to the grocery store and the beach. Thanks for another wonderful week!

Property Manager Response:
We are so delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us in Watercolor! We could not agree more about how perfectly situated within the community this home is and having the golf cart takes all of the stress out of the to and from! Thank you for joining us, we hope to host you all again soon!

My family has been coming to the 30a area for the last 10 years. This by far has been our most favorite house. First time staying in Watercolor and loved it. Enjoyed the pool area. Only suggestion would be to have a tiled area on the back side of the pool. (More tanning room and less pine straw and leaves in the pool) We had one slight issue with the shower in the bathtub. Made a phone call and it was promptly fixed. Golf cart and bikes were a big plus!! Love renting with 360 Blue! We will be back!!

Property Manager Response:
We are so glad you enjoyed your first Watercolor vacation! We have reached out to the home owner and learned that Watercolor’s HOA restricts the amount of tile that can be used in backyards, otherwise the home owner would have loved to have tiled the area more. We hope to host you again very soon

We have stayed at this house before, but this was our first visit since the new pool and jacuzzi were put in. Great addition! We enjoyed the privacy of hanging out in the pool with just our family, especially in the evenings. Cooked out on the grill for two of our dinners and then back in the hot tub — a lot of great conversations with our kids with no phones to distract out there! We love the layout of this home and all the books and board games. It’s location in Watercolor is perfect for us - not a lot of traffic in this area, and we really like riding bikes on the trails right behind the house to Seaside’s shops and food trucks and the Watercolor Beach Club area. FYI, Uber ride from the airport was only $60 when husband arrived later in week, and with this house having it’s own golf cart to get us to grocery store and local restaurants, we may skip renting a car on future trips because really not needed. Great house, love Watercolor and 360 Blue folks are awesome - will be back for sure!!

Property Manager Response:
We are absolutely thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the new additions! The pool and sitting spa at this home are impressive amenities, and great for families who want a little privacy while enjoying a swim and a grilling out session! The impressive layout does give everyone space to do their own thing, whether you desire to relax alone with a book or gather to play a board game. With the home being tucked away in a quieter part of WaterColor, the location is perfect for avoiding traffic and taking the bikes out to Seaside or the Beach Club. The golf cart is another great amenity at this home, so convenient for getting to and from without the hassle of a car. It makes our day to hear that you loved this house and that we were able to help you have an awesome vacation. Thank you so much for the review!

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. The organization and cleanliness exceeded our expectations. It was great to have access to the bicycles and a 6 passenger golf cart at the house. The home was furnished comfortably and with many conveniences. All the bed pillows, however, were overstuffed and too firm. We scrambled to use the smaller decorative pillows during our stay. We loved the beach, all the pools, and bike paths. Thank you very much.

We loved this house! We had four adults and two children. We are an active family and we loved having the bikes. We rode all of the trails and were delighted to find ourselves in the camp district on a soccer field. The home surpassed our expectations: clean, well appointed, and great atmosphere. We love the quiet street and the path in the back. We will definitely be back... and want to stay at this home again!

Fantastic place! Beds comfortable, ensuite bathrooms appreciated, kitchen well supplied with everything one needs, two screened in porches were wonderful. We are adding a porch swing to our cottage because we loved yours. I wish we had known that towels were provided at the pools and the beach as we didn't really need ours. Also I brought a hair dryer as it wasn't mentioned in amenities and you had them! It would be nice to have some spices and more dish detergent as it is a pain to have to buy them for one week! We loved having the golf cart and the bikes!

Property Manager Response:
Looks like it was the perfect day to be at the beach! We are so happy to hear you had such a great stay in WaterColor! The porch swing is such a nice bonus and really a great way to relax and unwind. We are also working hard to make sure all our amenities are clearly listed online as well. Thank you for your valuable feedback. Thank you for staying with 360 Blue and we hope you come back and visit us again soon!

Great house. Agree with comments in previous reviews that it's really nice to have a golf cart for 6 people, it's a pretty house with a lot of attention to details, the screened in porches are great, etc. We also loved having the nature trail behind the house for morning runs. One morning we went out and 5 deer were standing right there! 360BLUE was great to deal with and we liked being able to go right to the house and not have to stand in line to check in somewhere else. We will stay at this house again.

We had a wonderful time staying in Watercolor for Thanksgiving. This house was lovely and worked well for grandparents with family including 3 teenagers. The kids enjoyed bike riding from this house to Seaside food trucks every day (the Shave Ice place was the favorite and the lady who runs it is very nice) and it was great that 360 Blue provided good bicycles with the house. The grandparents appreciated having a bedroom and bathroom with shower on first floor, and we used the golf cart that came with the house to go for coffee at Amavida (best cappuccino) and Publix grocery store which is also convenient. We will definitely be back!

An awesome home. No so huge that it seemed overwhelming for just our family, but plenty of space to hang out with the two screened in porches. The kids found all the dvd’s and watched movies in the bunk bed room every night. I can’t believe it included a golf cart, which was also fun and just always made it seem like a vacation even if we were just going to the grocery store. We love Watercolor in the summer, but maybe even more so in the Fall and Winter when no crowds!! Put on a sweatshirt to go for a peaceful walk on the beach in the mornings and brilliant no humidity afternoons for walking around the shops and food trucks. Great to get into restaurants without a reservation.

We were not prepared for this week and how amazing it was going to be. The food. The charm. The clear ocean. The sand the weather. I could go on and on. But it would have been wasted if the home we stayed in didn't have the same kind of charm and character. We loved this beautiful home. It was the perfect size for our family. The golf cart was a huge bonus. Made our late nights in seaside easy to find out way back in the dark. We loved the feel of this home and everything except one tiny detail. The pillows. I know it is minor but an easy inexpensive fix. They are scratchy and feel like they are full of straw. I know that is nit picky but if I came back here I would have our family bring our own pillows. But other than that perfection. So thank you we are already picking our dates for next year.

Property Manager Response:
It makes us happy beyond words to hear that you had such a wonderful stay! We have asked the property manager to check into the pillows and work on some alternatives. We appreciate your feedback. We look forward to having you all back soon!

Every time we come to Watercolor we look for the best house for our family of 5 (this time plus Grandma) - we found it in this house! Perfect location - super close to the Frog Pool, my tweens dashed out every morning to go fishing at the Boathouse, and lovely walk (along lake) or easy bike ride to beach, tennis and Seaside. LOVED this home's open concept that had us all comfortably together cooking, doing puzzles at the big table, watching our Netflix on the main tv. Great games, puzzles, dvd's here! Worked out perfect to have a bedroom/bath on first floor so Grma could weave in/out of the family stuff or go to kitchen without going up/down stairs. Brand new gas grill was great! Best thing was the screened-in porches so we often had breakfast & dinner outside, and loved sitting out on the private screened-in porch off master with glass of wine in the evenings or coffee and a good book in the mornings. Icing on the cake - this house includes 6 person golf cart!! Thanks 360Blue for an awesome vacation home!!!
