We loved Watersound and 72 Yacht Pond! 360 Blue provided great service. The app was awesome!

Home was ok! Definitely needs some TLC!! Washer was broken upon arrival which clearly someone knew because it was unplugged! They did bring in a washer however the other set out on front porch all week blocking entrance to porch with swing! Blinds broken in master and carriage house! No closet in carriage house at all and to be a 5th bedroom needs a closet! Shower in carriage house clogged and overflowed! 5 Bikes not 6. Pots and pans may want to be replaced. Trash also not picked up at beach which looked and smelled terrible upon entrance to beach! We love Watersound and will definitely come back but not to this home! Also no cell service and spotty internet!!

Property Manager Response:
We are so sorry you had a less than wonderful experience while on vacation. We apologize the washer was left in a less than desirable spot and we will share this with our team. In reference to the trash at the beach, that is an HOA situation and one that we have no control over. As we understand it, I believe the Internet and Cable services had an outage during that time period as well, that is out of our hands as well, we wish would have been able to correct this personally. Unfortunately I do not show any documentation of the shower in the carriage house, however, if it had been reported I am sure we could have corrected that for you. Again, we are so sorry for the issues you experienced and we hope you are able to return to the beach soon.

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful home! Beds were comfy and we loved all the outdoor sitting areas. But, we were disappointed that the ice maker didn’t work and the carriage house smelled musty. If those things were rectified, this house would be perfect!

Property Manager Response:
What a cute photo! We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us in Water Sound! The outdoor seating area is one of the best parts of this property! Thank you so much for choosing 360 Blue for your beach vacation, and taking the time to provide us with your valuable feedback. We have passed your suggestions along to the property manager for this unit. We hope you'll be back to see us soon for the true 360 Blue experience!

We had a really nice time. The house is very pretty. The carriage house smells quite musty...disappointing. We all wished there were hooks in the house to hang wet towels on. We love the community.

Property Manager Response:
We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay! The community of WaterSound is beautiful. Thank you for the lovely picture of the beach! We absolutely value the input of our guests, and have addressed the carriage house smell and the lack of towel hooks. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, and look forward to having you as our guests again in the future!

Our family had a wonderful time on our first visit to watersound. We enjoyed the house - it was a great setup for the 10 of us. The kitchen was well equipped and we loved the location. I do think you should let guests know that there is little to no cell service at this house. We have 4 teenagers and 6 adults and no one could make a call or send a text inside the house. This makes it difficult for those that need to get some work done while on vacation, and it is hard to communicate with the group if we split up during the day.

Property Manager Response:
What a fun day for paddle boarding! We do apologize for the phone service. Media com is working on some fixes for the service in WaterSound. We do hope you were still able to make some amazing memories at the beach! Thank you for staying with 360 Blue and we hope to have you back again soon!

Our group of 8 adults and 2 children enjoyed our stay in Watersound. It is our 3rd time to stay in Watersound. We especially enjoy the quiet neighborhood for walking, bicycling and golf cart riding.

Property Manager Response:
This photo practically oozes relaxation and serenity! We could not be more thrilled that you chose 360 Blue for this year's escape to Watersound. We love being a part of such wonderful family traditions. We're glad you enjoyed the home, and could take advantage of the ease of riding bikes and golf carts in the area. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience, we hope to see you back at the beach soon!

This was our 12th year vacationing in this area and our 2nd time at this very house. We love the house and all the amenities that come along with it. Our only wish is that the pathway to the beach was more accessible for a child with special needs. We can't wait to return next year!

Property Manager Response:
We are thrilled to hear that you love this home as much as we do. We will definitely pass this info along to the HOA to see if there is anything they can do about the boardwalk. We look forward to having you back next year!

This was our 6th year staying in a community on 30A from Seacrest to Water Sound. The WS community and property is our favorite. We enjoyed the beautiful, spacious and well equipped house. The bikes and golf cart were fun and made it easy to get around. Love the location of the community because of the closeness to other areas and restaurants that we like. Customer Service was great and calls and request were answered quickly. We look forward to returning soon!! One criticism, the description of the "view of the gulf" was a little misleading.

Our family of five adults and two and five year old grandchildren loved staying in this lovely home. We love to cook, and the kitchen was well equipped and easy to use. Loved having the golf cart, bikes, beach chairs and all the pool and beach toys. One of the bathroom doors wouldn't close when we arrived, and 360 Blue immediately came and fixed it. The dunes, uncrowded beach, puttering park and fitness center make Watersound our favorite family vacation destination.

Property Manager Response:
Hi McClendon, We are glad to hear you had a relaxing beach vacation and enjoyed the sand dunes in WaterSound! Thank you for spending your beach vacation with us! We hope you will come back and stay with us again in the future.

We travel to 30A frequently for our family vacations. The house was immaculate and very well stocked. We were a group of 6 adults and 3 children. 72 Yacht Pond is very spacious and comfortable and within easy walk to the putt putt course, pool and workout facility. We enjoyed using the golf cart and it is a very easy ride to the beach which is convenient given the children in tow. Watersound is full of amenities and the grounds are beautiful and well kept. We had lunch at the pool, which was usually very good. We did have an issue with our grill upon check-in. 360 Blue immediately replaced it with a new one. 360 Blue associates are very friendly and easy to deal with. We will definitely be back! -The Mike Barlow Family

We're absolutely thrilled to hear you enjoyed your stay with your family at 72 Yacht Pond! Thank you so much for staying with 360 Blue.

We enjoyed the house very much for our family group which included 8 adults and 4 children under 6. The house has many nice features and the kitchen is well equipped. We had a cook come in and do an oyster roast and invited a few other family members staying in Watersound and it turned out great! The beach access was easy with the golf cart. The kids also enjoyed the pool and it was nice to grab lunch there and the service was friendly and the food good! We were fortunate to have wonderful weather for our week stay.

Those children are adorable! I'm so glad you had a wonderful vacation. I'm glad the weather stayed nice for you during your stay! We look forward to hopefully having you come visit us again soon!

Our extended family of 12, 5 children and 7 adults had a great stay. Our second year and we apprecited all the improvements - backs on lr couches, working freezer and golf carts. St Joes has screwed up the neighborhood. Closed all the boardwalks to bikes and carts due to a lawsuit and could not reserve any blue umbrellas or chairs. We needed 4 sets. They had 0 available all week. Fortunately this great house has it all 7 beach chaiirs, 2 umbrellas, 5 boogie boards and golf clubs and balls for the kids to use at Puttering Park which they did alot. Also 8 bikes & a Kayak. This is the best outfitted house ever. We would love to stay here again but only after St Joes fixes access to boardwalks(It is a long walk carrying chairs umbrellas & Kayak) and stocks enough beach equipment to support everyone. This is the first time ever we have not been able to rent besch equipment.

Property Manager Response:
Looks like a fun pool day at the house! Thank you for all your feedback. We are certainly happy to hear you enjoyed the home again and all it has to offer the whole family! We are just as hopeful that the boardwalks will be reopened soon. We are truly sorry for this inconvenience, but WaterSound and St. Joe is working hard to get these reopened for guests as quickly and as safely as possible. We'd love to have you back again, thank you!!

We are having an amazing time in this amazing house!! We have stayed in both Rosemary Beach and Seaside in years past, but have really enjoyed discovering Watersound. It is quiet and beautiful. Our only disappointment was to discover that we did not have access to the Watersound Beach Club. Our favorite things about the home were the dipping pool, the tower room, the porch swing, and golf carts.

Property Manager Response:
Thank you for staying with 360 Blue! We are happy you ventured to WaterSound this year as it has so much to offer the whole family! We hope you all had a fun time at the other awesome community pools In WaterSound! Thank you again and we hope to have you all back here soon!

We had a wonderful vacation! The house is beautiful, very well stocked with the essentials. The location is great. The golf carts, bikes and everything were a major plus for us. We had a very minor maintenance issue the first day we were there and someone from 360 was there within 30 minutes to fix the problem. We also had an issue with one of the golf carts and they took care of it immediately as well. Would certainly rent through 360 Blue again and would stay at this house again as well. We were very pleased with everything!

Property Manager Response:
Water looks so inviting! WaterSound is such a great community and we are so glad you enjoyed your time at 72 Yacht Pond! Thank you for reporting your maintenance issues. We are always here to help! Thank you again and we can't wait to have you back!!

We have been coming to Watersound for the past 3 yrs and absolutely love the location. Stays are always wonderful when the accommodations exceed expectations and this house easily fit our family! Having gotten married during our stay, my side (groom's) stayed in the house and it fit 7 adults and 3 children perfectly. Brand new fridge, newly upholstered patio furniture and the sea kayak were highlights! Not the biggest fan of the lack of parking availability when the construction workers take all the spaces on the street but oh well. We did unfortunately find a previous guest's child underwear and shirt mixed in with sheets in the 2nd floor king bed...pretty disgusting. Stripped the bed and rewashed everything in addition to trashing the clothing. Otherwise, it was a restful and wonderful stay. Great location close to beach access and puttering park. Would I stay again? Absolutely!

Property Manager Response:
Such a remarkable view of the water! Thank you for making 360 Blue a part of such a special day for you and your family. We are happy that the home so perfectly fit your needs. The kayaks must have been great for some honeymoon activities! We are so sorry to hear that you ran into some issues during your stay. We strive for perfection for each and every guest, especially for those important once in a lifetime moments! We hope the construction will soon be completed and this will no longer be an issue. As for the clothing found in the linens, we are extremely sorry to hear that this happened. That is not the typical 360 Blue experience, as we pride ourselves on our clean linen program. This should never had happened and we thank you for making us aware so that me can discuss this with the crew responsible to ensure it doesn't happen again. We are happy that these issues did not put a damper on such a joyous occasion and we hope you'll be back for your anniversary!

We had a great time and house is beautiful. Wr had the same issues that previous guests had with freezer and apparently nothing has been done. No big deal for us we just bought ice. The golf carts, kayak, boogie boards, chairs, and umbrella were very helpful. Been coming to Wayersound for 6 years but our first time in a home. I really missed the view of the water but overall a great home and choice.

We thought the house was fabulous. Extremely well decorated and filled with great items, dishes, etc. Many bikes and toys for our children. The Kayak was awesome and easy to transport back and forth to the beach. The community was great for children riding around, playing putt putt and visiting the pool and ocean. The wifi worked well but cell phone reception inside the house was awful. 2 golf carts were great until Thursday when a tire blew out and it was never fixed prior to our departure. Same unsafe tire that has been reported for months and ignored. Freezer did not work for ice cream and produced zero ice. Even with these problems our entire family loved the house and community.

Property Manager Response:
Great photo! It looks like you were really able to get the most out of your time on the coast. Thank you so much for choosing 360 Blue for your vacation and thank you for taking a moment share your experience. We do want to let you know that the golf cart tire has been taken care of. We are sorry that this affected your stay and that the place we took it to to for repairs was unable to get it fixed same day. We are also currently gathering quotes to present to the owner to get the freezer/ice maker replaced. We are so glad that these minor inconveniences didn't have a huge impact on your stay, and we hope you'll be back to stay with us again soon!

We had a great time at watersound, the kids loved the beach and pool. We had a couple of issues: the refrigator is not working properly, the freezer will not keep ice cream at all, I noticed that a party from Oct 2013 had the same problem. One golf cart had 2 bald front tires, on the last day it went flat. On the positive side the house had all the toys, beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. which was great. We definity enjoyed our vacation.

Property Manager Response:
This photo is precious! Thank you so much for sharing and thank you for your valuable feedback. We sincerely apologize for the issues you experienced during your stay. We will have our maintenance team check into the refrigerator as well as the golf cart tires. The home's property manager will discuss options with the homeowner. We hope you'll be back soon, as we know you will find these to be isolated issues.

Property Manager Response:
What a beautiful photo of a beautiful family! We sincerely apologize about the issues you experienced during your stay, but thank you for your feedback so that these may be addressed. We know that Mediacom was experiencing some outages during your stay, though we will still check out the router to ensure that isn't the problem. We should also make you aware that cell phones don't work so great in many locations throughout the area during the summer months. (But hey, sometimes it's nice to go a little off the grid during your vacation right?) We have scheduled a tune-up for the golf cart so that should improve its performance. We wish things could always be perfect (and we strive for perfection) though sometimes things just happen. We are so glad to hear that these minor issues didn't put a damper on your stay, and we are looking forward to your next visit!

The property was great & we loved the development with pool and beach accessibility. The house is beautiful. Having 2 golf carts was great. And the house was well-equipped with most everything you need. The grill was not the newest. The ice maker did not work well & often without ice. We really love Watersound & would definitely come again.

Property Manager Response:
This truly is a great place for families! By your photo I think it's safe to say a great time appears to have been had by all.

Hope you see you again next year!

The home was beautiful and very comfortable for the 11 of us. However, we did have some issues that the homeowners need to be aware of. The freezer never worked, we went through three containers of ice cream that would not stay frozen and had to be thrown away. The ice maker never made one ice cube. The wifi was very bad and it was diffucult to make a connection. All of our cell phones would not work in the house, iphones on At&t. It made it very difficult to handle business. We had to walk out in the street to get phone service. The upstsirs rear bedroom was extremely hot. The temp had to be turn down really low to make it comfortable (and still was warm) and it would make the other rooms very cold. Because this same bedroom is in the direct sun a pull drape would make a major difference. Having just recently owned and sold a home in Destin, I'm very conscious of mold issues and there are some areas that the homeowner may need to look into, especially around the air vents in the home.
