We usually spend most of our vacations in the Caribbean, but decided on a last minute trip to Watercolor/Seaside this time. What a gorgeous area! The sand and water definitely rival some of the best Caribbean beaches.
The house (467 East Royal Fern) is beautiful and very spacious. The beds are extremely comfortable, the kitchen is spacious, the outdoor area is great (large screened in porch), and we appreciated the privacy in the back of the house (no neighbors behind us).
We will definitely be coming back!
Property Manager Response: This is such a precious photo! It's definitely one to frame and look back on for years to come! We're delighted to hear you enjoyed your last minute trip to Watercolor!

We love Watercolor! This is our second vacation there. We absolutely loved this house and location. The rooms are spacious and the beds were extremely comfy! The pool was great although the pump stopped working and we called to report it. They fixed it but it stopped working again. They sent someone again but it stopped working again. Definitely didn't stop the fun or would it prevent future visits just kinda frustrating to have to keep calling. Also loved the kitchen in this house! Great for large families!
Property Manager Response: What a precious family photo! It's definitely one to treasure for years to come! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed the property and that the pool issue didn't keep you from enjoying your stay! We appreciate you providing your valuable feedback! Thank you for choosing 360 Blue for your family's beach vacation. Be sure to visit us again soon!

Thanks to your 360 Blue staff we had a great vacation. Our family of 12, ages 2 to 85 loved the home. It was a great location -- a short golf cart ride to the beach or Publix. The 12 seater golf cart, screened-in porch an pool were a real plus. The children loved the bikes too. I'd highly recommend this house.
Property Manager Response: What a cute family photo! It looks like you guys got to take advantage of the complementary golf cart! We are so thrilled to hear that your family enjoyed the property and your visit with us so thoroughly! Thank you so much for choosing 360 Blue for your family's beach vacation. Come back and see us again soon!

We had a lovely time! 360 blue quickly handled any issue that arose. We love using the bikes and golf cart to get to the beach. My favorite memory is star gazing on the front porch - the location (backing up to pine forest) made it ideal for see many constellations. Having the pool heated came in handy with cool spring nights. Open floor plan allowed us all to be together and carriage house was a perfect place for grandparents. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us.
Property Manager Response: Such a beautiful family! We are so thrilled you had such a wonderful stay in WaterColor. Thank you for choosing to stay with 360 Blue and we hope to have you back again soon!

The house was beautiful. We have been vacationing at Seaside, Watercolor, and Rosemary Beach for the past 20 years. Just like be the Emerald Coast So the house had one major design flaw, which was the steps leading to the driveway. This was the major entrance into the kitchen and the steps were very narrow and deep. Sadly my husband fell. Also we usually receive a gift upon arrival. Usually some type of beach bag filled with goodies. We received nothing and given the price of the rental this is somewhat disappointing. Anyway beautiful property
