The carriage house was perfect for my stay! Easily accessible to all the amenities at Watercolor, and everyone at 360 Blue was on top of my every need. January is a wonderful time to be at the Emerald Coast!

Carriage house was lovely and we enjoyed our stay for a friend's destination wedding. Suggestions: no clear instructions regarding the guest passes - we had no idea there was a private beach or special place/ clubhouse we could use them to go to. No maps of area, etc. and it was disappointing to realize all this when we were out of time. Several minor issues with the room, but we submitted the problems via the online forms ( moldy shower curtain, slow draining bathroom sink, etc.)

Property Manager Response:
We are so happy to hear that you had such a great time. We sincerely appreciate your feedback and we are working to make some corrections so that no one else experiences those same issues. We enjoyed having you with us and hope to see you back again soon!

Great space for two of us! In fact, we booked an extra night while there because we enjoyed it so much! Loved the bikes and convenience! Cottage very close to all the pools and beach. Within walking or riding distance to Seaside. Perfect!!!!!

We absolutely fell in love with the 360 blue/watercolor/seaside area. First I'd like to say how beautiful the area is (neighborhood) that 186 needlerush Dr. is situation in. The lot is beautiful, quiet and of course, tranquil. We were able to enjoy the private watercolor beach and the watercolor inn's main pool areas because we rented with 360 blue. Some of your amenities from renting 186 needlerush included two bikes, a cute cottage (studio) that is situated above a garage which comes with a small eat-in kitchen, a bathroom, some living area furnishings, and a queen bed. There were a few things that I think would have made our stay better. 1. The bathroom needed some tlc. Our toilette was not thoroughly cleaned, and the shower curtain had quite a bit of mildew on it. Also, the toilette brush and plunger were left next to the toilette and shower. As a guest, I wouldn't want to see those things exposed. During our stay I moved them to a closet. Another small issue we had was with the extra bedding that is pr

Pros: - great location - parking - comfortable bed and functional kitchen - responsiveness of mgt company Cons: - no washer and drier (despite confirmation from 360 blue by phone beforehand) - only comfortable for a couple, sofa bed not good, ok only for small kids - value for money

Property Manager Response:
We are so sorry to hear that you may have gotten some incorrect information. We will be sure to address that and the sofa with our management team. We sincerely appreciate your feedback and we hope to have you back soon!

The carriage house was perfect for the two of us! Usually we come with the whole family or a group and rent a house but, for just the two of us, it was exactly what we needed. The location couldn't be better! The only thing we would suggest is a larger bathroom mirror or full length mirror in the space. Also, a curtain or some sort of cover for the door, at night the shades do not occlude view from the outside.

Property Manager Response:
We're so happy to hear this home accommodated the two of you so well! The location certainly is ideal! Thank you for the suggestions, we will be sure to pass that along. Hope to have the whole family back next time!

We had a wonderful time here in Watercolor. The quaint rental was all we needed for the two of us. The beach was awesome and we enjoyed using the bikes provided to explore the trails. It will be a beautiful memory to look back on....we did want to let you know that the shower curtain rod kept falling down, but that didn't hinder or stay. Also, a full length mirror would be a nice addition, maybe behind one of the closet doors. Thank you for a great time!

Property Manager Response:
What a spectacular view! We are so overjoyed that you had such a wonderful time at 186 Needlerush! We appreciate you taking the time to share your valuable feedback and we will absolutely address those issues to make sure they don't happen again in the future.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the carriage house and found it provided everything we could need! The location close to publix, the pools, and just a bike ride from the beach proved to be perfect. The bikes being included in the rental cost were just an extra perk-Highly appreciated! We will be back!

A little gem! The place is beautiful, clean and comfortable. Plenty of linens. All the appliances we needed for our stay. We were down here for a wedding so it was conveniently located next to other guests but an easy bike ride to the beach district. We don't have a child but it would be very toddler friendly as there are no stairs once inside and its spacious enough you can fit a pack and play. Well lit with natural light, and AC/fan kept the place nice and cool.

That sunset is so peaceful! We are happy that this home was such a good fit for all of your needs. It is in such a great location, especially for biking! Thank you!

Everything was great. The cold A/C felt great coming in from the heat. We made a last minute reservation, but everything was just so when we arrived. Very cosy for 2. Great sleeping with the rain on the tin roof. 2 bikes were ready and waiting. It was fun getting around on those. 4 minutes to town square.

Property Manager Response:
Thank you so very much for sharing your experience! We cannot tell you how happy reviews like yours make us. We are so glad you were able to come in last minute and that everything exceeded your expectations. Give us a call next time you need a beach escape!

We had a fantastic stay in the carriage house at 186 Needlerush! You can't get much closer to the frog pool and there isn't a lot of vehicle traffic. The beach is a 6 minute bike ride and Publix is less than a 10 minute bike ride. The only draw back is the lack of outdoor lounge space but it's so close to the park it's not a major issue. Also, the coffee pot is full size now and thankfully so! We enjoyed 12 cups daily!

Property Manager Response:
What a beautiful baby! You are right, this fabulous carriage house is ideally located for a nice quiet escape to the beach. Close enough to everything you need to be extremely convenient, yet far enough to feel secluded and serene. We are so happy to hear that you had such an enjoyable stay and we cannot wait to have you back!
