We had a wonderful stay at Watersound in a fabulous home! While the weather was not great, 40 Watchtower made up for it. Our teenage kids were enthralled with the Sonos system, and Jenny and I were smitten with the huge gas fireplace - which we enjoyed every morning. We definitely hope to return.
Property Manager Response: Wow, you captured the beauty of those white sanded dunes so perfectly! Thank you for staying with us in WaterSound! We're so happy you and the family enjoyed everything this beautiful home has to offer! We look forward to having you back!

Beautiful house.resort and stretch of coastline. A perfect holiday with friends and family. I did manage to get a citation for illegal use of a golf cart !! Im blaming it on the language barrier and a lack of local knowledge. Will be returning. If allowed. ?
Property Manager Response: Thank you for staying with us all the way from the UK! We apologize for any troubles with the community golf cart rules. Please give us a call during your next visit with any questions or concerns as we're always here to help! We'd absolutely love to have you back, thank you again!

My family (14 in all) had a fabulous stay. This was our first family reunion in 10 yrs. and it was everything we hoped it would be. The bedrooms and baths were fabulous (especially the Master). The kitchen and adjoining dining and living rooms were the center of our evenings together. The kids loved the pool, as did the adults later in the evening. We loved the provided golf cart and paddle board. Finally, thank goodness for the carriage house suite. My huaband and I ( the seniors in the group) were thankful for the peace and quiet. The only minor deficiency I found was a lack of kitchen dish towels and some larger pots and pans ( enough to cook for 14 people). Thanks for some great times and great memories.
Property Manager Response:
Big family vacations are so wonderful. You can build so many memories among multiple generations that will last for so many years to come. Thank you so much for choosing 360 Blue for your stay. We really appreciate your feedback on the supplies in the kitchen and I will be sure the property manager and the home owner are aware. We truly loved having you with us and we hope to see you all back soon!

Our family had an amazing time!! We had 11 people including my one year old. This was his first time to the beach and it truly was an amazing experience. The rooms and bathrooms were outstanding, the living and kitchen area was perfect for everyone being together! Cannot say enough great things about the house and the community!
Property Manager Response: Thank you for staying with 360 Blue! We're so happy to hear the little one had an amazing first trip to the beach! You'll have to bring him back again soon for more memorable beach days! Thank you again!

The house is great. Few suggestions: need pizza cutter, pancake griddle, serving pieces. Love the savvy techlogy but would be helpful to have instructions in each room. Also several remotes had dead batteries and light bulbs out on arrival. We replaced ourselves. Watersound is very comfortable and development. Would definitely rent house again.
Property Manager Response: Great photo! Love the shirt! Thank you so much for choosing 360 Blue for your family vacation and for taking a moment to leave your valuable feedback. As we come to our off season, we will be sure to do a thorough housewares inventory and replenish any necessary items. We've gone ahead and taken care of any lights that were burnt, and would have been more than happy to provide new remote batteries. Instructions for the home awesome electronics can always be found in the app, and 360 Blue is always just a phone call away. We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the home and the area and we look forward to your return!

Like Erin from Houston, we had a great stay at this warm and inviting home. While we did not have 16 in our party like the prior guest, we did have a mix of adults, teens, and kids. The home is perfect for large groups with 5 king beds plus a bunk room. The setting of WaterSound Beach is ideal - secure, beachside, and pool with cafe. The golf cart and bikes were extremely helpful to getting around to beach or pool with ease. Any issue with house was immediately resolved by great staff at 360 Blue. Only question was on operating the heavily networked TV as need a video to understand the leading edge technology but TV is secondary to a beach stay anyway. Loved it and want to return. - Rich in GA
