“The Way We Like It” is the perfect vacation spot! The home is spacious and very comfortable. It is nestled in a beautiful wooded area where wild deer can be spotted from both the front porch and the back screen porch. The bedrooms are large, with super comfortable bedding and plenty of closet and drawer space. The bathrooms are a dream, with large marble walk-in showers and double sinks. The kitchen is fully equipped for any need and includes a spacious refrigerator, a large gas stove with double ovens, and a separate ice maker. There is plenty of seating around the farm table in the dining area and around the fireplace in the living room. There are many lovely trails for walking and biking around Water Color and the surrounding areas. Bikes and a golf cart are provided . Our stay at “The Way We Like It” was perfect and we hope to return to this piece of paradise soon!
Manager Response:
We are overjoyed to hear that you enjoyed your stay in WaterColor! We completely agree that the two porches at this home are wonderful spaces for spotting deer and the spacious kitchen is an absolute dream! Thank you for staying with 360 Blue. We look forward to hosting you again soon!

We had a terrific time at The Way We Like It with my sisters and cousins last week. The house is perfect for our large group! We did water aerobics at the home pool as well as bike riding and walking the trails. We enjoyed the new lazy river at the newly renovated camp pool. Some even did the water slide. The beach pool was great for out late afternoons following a day at the beach.

Property Manager Response:
We are so thrilled to hear how much you all enjoyed your vacation with us in Watercolor! We agree that this home is perfect for larger groups and the wonderful amenities of Watercolor are second to none! Thank you for staying with 360 Blue! We hope to see you all again soon!

We have a great family vacation. Six adults—-3 children, 2 and under. The house was perfect. Everyone had there space. The pool was a great addition for a quick dip. Absolutely loved the 6 passenger golf cart. My daughter had stayed in the house before, and if we want to return to Watercolor would definitely rent it again.

Property Manager Response:
We are so happy you enjoyed 433 Pine Needle so much! The home truly is beautiful and having the golf cart is so nice to get around the community with! Thank you for staying with 360 Blue and we hope to host you again soon!

This is the second time in five years we have stayed in this home and I have nothing but wonderful things to say. We had 6 adults, 1 teenager, and 3 children- 10 years of age and under in the home this time. The bedrooms are so spacious and cozy and the bathrooms are amazing. The three children slept in the bunk hallway (which has a pocket door to close off any noise). The entire first floor is so inviting and the details/decor are gorgeous. The pool is the perfect size for little ones and the patio and deck area were great for adults to hang out on. We had our coffee on the front porch each morning and a glass of wine on the second floor enclosed balcony each night. The home is very close to the new camp watercolor pool and a quick golf cart ride to the beach and restaurants. We will definitely be back to this home again! Thank you for an amazing vacation!

Property Manager Response:
Wow! What an awesome photo of the kids enjoying the pool! Thank you for sharing! We are so excited to hear that your second stay with us in this beautiful home was one to remember! We completely agree that the home is perfect for a relaxing beach getaway and the golf cart is super convenient to have so you can explore everything the area has to offer! Thank you for sharing your awesome experience! We hope to host you and your family again next Summer!

This is our 5th year renting homes in WC and this was the best so far. All 4 king beds were comfortable, the layout of the home was great. We had 8 adults and 4 children and still had plenty of space. The golf cart was also a great addition to this rental, as was the pool. The only drawback was that the pool light was burned out and unfortunately no one ever showed up to fix it. When we arrived at the house, our key cards for pool access were not there and all of the fire alarms were out of the ceiling laying on the floor. 360 Blue did respond to those items very quickly and everything else was great. We would absolutely book this home again!

Property Manager Response:
Scott, we are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay in WaterColor. Thank you for the wonderful picture of your group - it looks as though everyone is having a wonderful time!

We are very thankful to have found this perfect place for our Berg family vacation in Watercolor. It was truly memorable. There were 11 of us including 3 grandchildren ages 8, 11 and 15. Some of us went to the beach early each morning to see the sunrise. The family found the porches comfortable, especially to sit and read on the upstairs front porch swing and enjoy the peaceful area. We had a beautiful wedding set-up on the beach to celebrate the renewal of wedding vows in front of family. We appreciate the opportunity to stay in this beautiful and very comfortable house. The children were very happy to have the pool and it was sometimes difficult to coax them out of it. Thank you for creating and sharing the perfect place for us. Chris & Joan Berg

It was a wonderful week-long home away from home for our family of 10! Perfect distance from everything and we loved being able to ride bikes or walk to the beach and pool, and Seaside fun. We all went to the club house everyday.. that was amazing!! We had a few minor issues like the a/c unit freezing up, oven making weird sounds and not cooking properly one night so we had to reset it, dishwasher not completely cleaning the dishes, but the 360 Blue folks were wonderful in responding and helping to resolve them. I do wish the house had more matching storage containers, and better knives, as well as more bath towels (we had no wash clothes upstairs), as well as more kitchen towels. Aside from those issues, we absolutely loved the space! The outdoor porches were amazing!! We will definitely recommend this place to friends and family and hope to return again in the future.

We were a family of 11 (4 adults, and 7 kids ranging in age from 15-2yo). The location was great. Just a little off the beaten path to access the beach, so having a private pool was the perfect addition. We loved riding bikes through the neighborhood and to 30A for lunch and freshly pressed juices. Having Publix grocery store around the corner was a huge plus! The house is gorgeous, super clean, and well equipped. There was plenty of space for all of us! We used the concierge to book a sandcastle lesson and it was a great success. Highly recommend! We will definitely be back.

Property Manager Response:
What a beautiful group! We love seeing those smiling faces! We couldn't be more thrilled that you enjoyed your stay with us so thoroughly! We are so glad you could enjoy one of our 360 Blue experiences, sand castle building really is fun for the whole family! Thank you so much for choosing 360 Blue, and for taking a moment to share your valuable feedback with us. We hope to see you back at the beach soon!

We had a wonderful time at 433 Pine Needle Way. The house was as neat as a pin, warmly decorated, and very clean upon arrival. The pool was cleaned and heated for us to jump right in, which our 3 year old daughter loved! The weather was unseasonably warm most of our stay but the air conditioning units kept up with our a/c needs- which we have found that other homes do not. The kitchen was well stocked and the beds were comfortable. We felt right at home and we had everything we needed. The only thing missing was a blanket for a few cool nights, but 360 Blue delivered one promptly when I called to request one. The back and front porches were great places to enjoy some quiet time or enjoy coffee. It is a lovely home. We will be back! Thank you, 360 Blue!

Property Manager Response:
What a beautiful family photo, definitely one to frame so you can remember it for years to come! We are so happy to hear you and your family enjoyed the home so much! Thank you for staying with 360 Blue and we cannot wait to have you back at the beach again soon!

This was our second visit to this beautiful home!! We love the neighborhood charm and well maintained properties. The children enjoyed riding bikes to the beach and exploring other areas of WaterColor. This property has a pool and an outdoor entertaining area, which welcomed us at the end of each day. Grocery shopping is an ease with the supermarket and other shops nearby. We actually found a seafood market just 2 miles away, which provided fresh shrimp and fish for our meals on the gas grill. You definitely should use the "360 Blue" app. We would receive daily alerts, reminders and invites to the local events. It is a convenient way of staying connected to the 360 community. Awesome house, awesome owners, awesome time!!

Property Manager Response:
It is hard to find a better way to spend your time than hanging out on those porch swings! We are so happy that you loved this home as much as we do. The app really is a great way to experience all that the area has to offer. Thank you so much for choosing 360 Blue. We hope to have you back soon!

433 Pine Needle Way has been the best house we have rented in Watercolor over the last 10 years. The house was very nicely furnished and kept, it was very clean and had everything we needed. This was our 4th Thanksgiving down here with our extended family and had a great time - weather sensational. Would highly recommend 360 Blue and certainly would consider renting this great house again. Thank you - Kitzmans, Lookout Mountain, TN

We stayed in Watercolor for a wedding in Rosemary beach and I'm so glad we did. The privacy of the home and ease of getting around made our trip! The town is just adorable with so many good eats and shops near the beach. Loved the layout of the home and the openness of the kitchen and living room. The screened in back porch was the perfect addition to the pool. Can't wait to go back!

Our 8th annual family Watercolor trip - and it was a good one! We had perfect hot July weather with gorgeous blue green Gulf waters. 433 Pine Needle was very comfortable for our group of eleven. We especially loved the wonderful kitchen where we prepared some great breakfasts and dinners in. It's a well stocked kitchen, except for just a few neccessties - hot pads and oven mitts, an electric mixer, and a colander - but we improvised. We absolutely loved the ice machine - best one we've ever had - it kept up with 3 coolers for the beach every day with ice to spare! Great layout in the house with plenty of seating in front of the big screen TV in the living room, and loved that all four bedrooms have comfy king size beds. Just The Way We Like It is a comfortable and beautifully decorated home.

Property Manager Response:
Thank you so much for sharing your feedback and suggestions. We will be sure to add any needed kitchen items to the home as soon as possible. We're glad this beautiful home fit you all so perfectly! Hope to see you for your 9th annual trip!
