Shelley M: We really enjoyed 276 Pine Needle Way. We have been coming to Watercolor for over 10 years and this was definitely one of our favorite houses. I loved how bit the bedrooms were. We had several kids staying in each and there was plenty of room for their suitcases. I also thought the kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans, etc... The only suggestion I would have is to get a broom or better vacuum. We could not sweep up sand in the house and the vacuum was horrible. It ended up spreading more dirt than picking it up. Honestly everything else was perfect! Lovely decor, comfortable beds and really enjoyed the side screened porch!

Property Manager Response: We are so happy that you and your family enjoyed your vacation with us at ""Family Tides""! We agree that this home is spacious and a great place for a beach getaway! Thank you for your suggestion and we will be sure that we have a broom/vacuum for future guests! Please call us next time if you find something you need but can not locate! We are always happy to help! We value your feedback and thank you for choosing 360 Blue! We look forward to hosting you again soon!

Kristen G: Would have liked to have more info about rentals and amenities at house at time of deposit. Beach chair, golf cart rentals 3 wheel bikes etc were sold out at tm of final payment. We were not told about that or many of the amenities ahead of arrival. Only found out about executive access when we received app only days before arrival. Trash bin was overflowing on arrival with trash all over ground outside bin First thing we saw when we arrived. We did like the house but our first Watercolor experience was a struggle to maneuver sold out rentals, no beach chairs available at overcrowded pools, long waits at restaurants with no executive access advantages. We were turned away with 4 children under 12 because we were told at Beach Club that we had to have 1 card for 2 people but it says on your hospitality app that children under 12 do not require beach card. Amenities access hard/confusing. infestation of red and black ants in shared bathroom upstairs

Darren J: Great location and the house was wonderful . Everything you may need is there and we had a full house with 14 guest including 7 teenagers!:) Which makes the bathrooms tight but manageable if you utilize the outside shower!:)Guest services were very helpful with everything and overall a great vacation!

Property Manager Response: We could not be more happy to hear how much you all enjoyed your time with us! Thank you for staying with 360 Blue, we look forward to seeing you again soon!

Tami J: We had 14 guests, 7 of them teenagers, for a week. We thoroughly enjoyed the house. It was very spacious and accommodating. Our only complaint was a swarm of carpenter ants at the end of the week. Our squeamish female teens refused to stay in their room the last 2 nights. All in all, it was a great vacation!

Property Manager Response: We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay in WaterColor. The picture you posted is absolutely perfect - the porch looks like a great spot for relaxing after a long day at the beach! We apologize for the issue with the carpenter ants that you encountered while staying with us. but we appreciate you allowing us to correct this for you. Thank you for staying with 360 Blue. We hope to see you all again soon!

Judy A: We had a wonderful week at ""family tides"". The house is extremely nice and accommodated 6 adults and 4 children quite well. We felt the location to seaside and to watercolor camp pool to be a very reasonable short bike ride. We rented a couple kid trailers for two of the bikes and transported our things with the kids easily. We thoroughly enjoyed the porch swing. The breezes in the morn and evening were quite pleasant and relaxing. All in all a wonderful stay. I'm quite sure we will be back to stay here again. Thanks for a lovely experience.

Property Manager Response: Judy, we are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay in WaterColor. The picture you provided of your little ones enjoying the beach is absolutely adorable and the beach looks beautiful! Thank you for staying with 360 Blue. We hope to see you all again soon!

Gaston S: Love the house and location! It was a couple blocks from the beach but if ride bikes or rent the golf cart you are good to go! The rooms were good size and the house was clean! Only the master shower had mildew so hopefully they fix that for the next renters. The master bedroom could use a dresser for your stuff if you are staying for a week. The other rooms had a bench or something. I would stay at this house again in a heartbeat!

Property Manager Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your vacation with us in Watercolor! We agree that this home is in a wonderful spot and is perfect for a carefree beach getaway! We will share your valuable feedback with our team regarding the mildew in the master bathroom shower. We hope to host you and your group again soon!
