DETAILS: 97 S Founders Lane is an elegant Gulf front home that has been customized into one of the most spectacular homes in Watersound. The private pool, swim up bar, eight balconies, and unparalleled Gulf vistas are just a few of its highlights.

The first bedroom has a king bed, TV, access to a private screened porch, and an ensuite bath with a single vanity and shower. The second room has a king bed with 2 twin sleeper chairs, a TV, access to a screened porch, and an ensuite bathroom with a vanity and shower/tub combination. The entrance to the impeccable three story stairwell add the final touches to the first floor.

The open plan on the second floor includes the kitchen, dining, and living areas, plus three balconies with dune and pool views. The kitchen boasts Wolf appliances and a large island, while the living area features two large flat screen TVs that ascend out of the ornate cabinets at the push of a button. Down the hall, the third bedroom features a king bed, access to two balconies (one with gulf views), and an ensuite bathroom with a double vanity and shower. This floor also features a second laundry area, half bath, and dedicated office space. Follow the second floor deck to the carriage house where you will find a queen bed, king sleeper, kitchenette, seating area, TV, and ensuite bath with a single vanity and shower.

The highlight of this home is the prestigious third floor primary suite. The bedroom features a king bed and picturesque views of the sugar white sand dunes and beach. There is also a large walk in closet across the hall from the large primary bath that has a shower with two heads, a large stand-alone tub, and double vanity. There is no need to go downstairs for a late night cocktail as there is a wet bar with three bar seats just outside the entrance to the master. On the opposite side of the floor is the kids room with 4 twin beds.

Enjoy the sweeping, panoramic views that encapsulate all that Watersound has to offer from the watch tower.

Kevin : This was a really nice house. Having 4 king size beds was important to our family. The elevator certainly is a + as well. The kitchen is nicely stocked, but not having access to a pantry for food storage was inconvenient. We wish that the light switches had been labelled. The kids room was a very nice ++ with their own little table to play at. The splash pool at the house was nice, but it needs to be replastered as we all ended up with nicks and cuts. Not having working lights above the stove was an inconvenience. The ++ definitely outweigh the small --, but they are worth noting. Overall our group of 11 had a wonderful week in a very nice house. We would rent it again if it was directly on the beach (we knew ahead of time the location). 360 Blue ALWAYS delivers a great experience. They are our preferred rental company in 30A.

Property Manager Response: We are delighted you had a wonderful stay in WaterSound with your family and appreciate you providing a review. We hope to welcome you back to the Emerald Coast again soon; thank you for choosing 360 Blue!

Jessica : Sure! We loved our stay and location and were in fact there for our Honeymoon. Just seems when we go through 360 Blue small things like bike tires being flat and pool being dirty are not addressed. At the price point we are paying the small details should be easy to address :)

Property Manager Response: We are thrilled you loved WaterSound as much as we do and appreciate you sharing your experience. We have ordered new bikes and hope to receive them in the next few months, and confirmed this home's pool is cleaned twice a week. It was a pleasure having you stay with us, and we hope to see you at the beach again soon!

Jonathan C: We had a great vacation at this house! We had 11 people plus a 9 month old. There was plenty of space and the house was immaculate. The elevator was a huge help getting the baby gear to the 3rd floor. We can't wait to return!

Property Manager Response: Jonathan, We love hearing that you enjoyed your stay with us in Watersound Beach. We appreciate your valuable feedback and we look forward to hosting you again soon. Thank you for choosing 360 Blue.

We loved the decor and the comfort of the home and the location is THE BEST. 360 Blue did a very good job of making sure property was ready for us and responded quickly to the very small issues we had. We will return!!

John B: We had an amazing time! The waterfront beach house has breathtaking views. The house came with lots of amenities including a golf cart, beach chairs, bikes, community pool, beach club access, and private beach access. We had seven people stay, including two small children, who loved the kids' room and toys. The house was laid out nicely to accommodate all families and was decorated beautifully. The WaterSound Beach Club pool was great for the whole family with zero entry, fountains, and a lazy river. The club provided towels, ice water, swim diapers, and poolside food and drink service. You can easily access the private beach right from the back porch. The beach was very clean with beautiful white sand and crystal clear water. The house is close to great local restaurants or you can cook in the fully-equipped chef's kitchen with water views from the kitchen sink. We enjoyed our stay so much we hope to come back next year!

Property Manager Response: What a beautiful photo of the beautiful beaches! Thank you for sharing! We are thrilled that 97 South Founders was a perfect fit for your family vacation. We completely agree that this homes views, location, and amenities are second to none! Thank you for this amazing feedback! We are so happy to hear that your experience with 360 Blue was a positive one! We look forward to hosting you again soon!

John M: Overall, we had an amazing trip. The home is spectacular! However, there were a few things that could have been handled a little differently. First of all, the description of the home is outdated. It still states there is a pool table, which there is not. That was one of the things we were looking forward to. Also, the description of the bed and room situation is also outdated. The media room is a bedroom and the beds are very small. Teenage boys cannot sleep in those beds like we were planning!! They had to sleep on couches instead! One huge problem is that the owners have locked the pantry!!!! In a home this size, with this many people, where is the food supposed to be stored????? There are plenty of closets that can be locked for them, the pantry should not be one. We had to get creative and improvise so we had somewhere besides the counters to put all of our food for 16 people!! That should not have to be done in a rental such as this! Loved the location, neighborhood & balconies!! Will return to WS!!

Property Manager Response: John, we are sorry to hear that your stay was anything less than five stars. We appreciate your valuable feedback regarding the pool table, beds, and food storage situation. We understand how frustrating this can be and we will be sure to share this information with our entire team in an effort to correct this for future guests. Thank you for staying with 360 Blue. We hope to see you again!

Joe P: We had an exceptional stay in Watersound! The house was spectacular and the views were breathtaking. The house was elegantly decorated and the setup was perfect for our families. Our stay also included lots of amenities such as the golf cart, pool, private beach access, and the watersound beach club which is perfect for any family with kids! The entire 360 Blue staff was extremely professional, friendly and accommodating. We truly enjoyed making many wonderful memories and look forward to staying again next year!

Property Manager Response: Joe, we love hearing that you and your party enjoyed your stay in the WaterSound community. It truly does offer excellent views and plenty of amenities. Thank you for including a picture of your family enjoying the beach and for staying with 360 Blue. We hope to see you again soon!

Zachary W: This oceanfront home just had a complete remodel. Absolutely stunning... kudos to the interior decorator on a job well done. Our family of 10 which included 4 generations had a wonderful vacation.The views were outstanding. Elevator was a lifesaver for the Great grandparents as was the golf cart that came with the house. The grandkids are still talking about the bunk room and all the toys. Great week of memories that will last forever! I would highly recommend this beautiful oceanfront home!

Property Manager Response: We are so delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us in Watersound! We especially loved the photo you shared and we completely agree that this newly renovated home is the perfect setting for a fun and relaxing family getaway! Thank you for joining us, we hope to host you all again soon!
