The house was wonderful. Extremely well equipped with 3 sets of washers & dryers, great bathrooms, a wonderful Sonos system as well as great appliances in the kitchen. Very close to the beach. We had four problems and 360 Blue fixed all immediately. They were extremely responsive and helpful. We will definitely return
Property Manager Response: What a beautiful family photo! We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay in WaterSound! Thank you so much for choosing to stay with 360 Blue and we can't wait to have you back again soon!

As a family, we enjoyed our stay. Despite some a/c problems, ice maker not working properly, and the golf cart not charged and needing water in the battery cells that we had to diagnose; we enjoyed our vacation. I would advise locking the unfinished rooms on the third floor with little kids running around etc. For a house that accommodates a large family, it would be nice to have more than one pitcher available and to have some plastic cups. These are little things but would have been nice touches. We love Water Sound and have stayed in different homes in the area. We will definitely return to this area again!
Property Manager Response: Thank you for the valuable feedback. We are happy to report the the AC, ice maker, and golf cart have all been addressed and are in great working order. We are checking into the housewares to make sure the home has enough items to support the number of guests. We are thrilled that you had such a great stay and we hope to see you back soon!

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!

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!
