About Brian Swedberg

Brian and Maria Swedberg live in Toms River, NJ where they have raised two sons who love the beach and grew up with the waves and sand! They purchased this property in 2000 so they could enjoy the spring and fall at the beach, as well as remodel this home over time and eventually retire in Seaside Park.

Great family vacation house

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! It was perfect for our family with enough space for everyone to move around, play, read and rest. Kitchen/dining area fit us all and the den/office area to the side of the living room was great for card playing and reading. AC's all seemed in good working condition and main house was always comfortable. Back and front porches were a little too warm during certain times of day, but great in the am and pm for relaxing. Only time we got in the car was to go to the grocery store - everything else is within walking distance. Beach is gorgeous and clean and homeowner is friendly and helpful. Loved our stay!!

Ended up moving out

  • 1 of 5

Stayed here last year with excellent experience.

On arrival this year the main bathroom was locked and when we opened it we found the toilet was disconnected and bathroom unusable. Owner reacted as if he knew nothing about this. Next morning I used the shower on the third floor. Water started running down the walls on first floor...turned out to be raw sewage. Cannot begin to explain how this ruined our Sunday and completely disgusted us. Spent the day looking for a place for our family of 8 to relocate.

Owner was difficult, but finally refunded our money after 5 weeks. Not a good experience at all.

Owner's Response: So Sorry for the inconvenience and problem. The toilet was plugged pynthe previous tennant and we were in aware of the problem until they moved in. I immediately contacted the plumber and cleaning crew and thet were there by that afternoon. They family decided to secure another location and I fully reimbursed them for the new rental. The bathroom has been fully rennovated for the 2018 season. We make every effort to satisfy our guests as indicated in other review and are sorry for this unplanned and unforeseen incident.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house for a family. Close to the beach and the bay so there was tons of things to do. Brian was a great host. Could not have asked for more.

Great location to enjoy the Jersey Beach

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and well located property. Just steps to a beautiful beach. The beach house is well furnished, and works great for carry in meals with a great ice cream shop just down the street. If you are in to cooking, everything you need is available in the house. Comfortable furniture, and a nice size TV. The indoor and outdoor porches are perfect for enjoying the pleasant environment on the quiet street where the property is located. We plan to return next year.

Great location, plenty of room and the house had everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed the week. Loved walking the boardwalk every morning and riding bikes. Beach is very clean and quiet. We loved not having to bring beach essentials except towels. We would definitely recommend and stay again.

Thanks Brian!

Undamages by Sandy! This is a beautiful area on the Jersey Shore, near all the action of the Boardwalk, restaurants, rides and shopping, but located in a residential area, with a Victorian flair. The home is the 3rd from the ocean, just steps from the beach, in a quiet family area, with wide streets and fantastic views of the ocean. Just across the bridge is the town of Toms River, the County Seat with Ocean County Mall and all the amenities of a good size town.

Other Activities: Beach, all water recreation, near amusement area 1 mile away.
