Amazing house in wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great, long weekend at Four C's Retreat. The house is in amazing condition, beautifully decorated, and in a great location to walk to the beach. Our children loved the bunk beds and the adult amenities were great as well. We spent time at both neighborhood pools and loved the ability to let the kids ride bikes and scooters around the neighborhood. It is easy to get to restaurants and grocery stores, and in a great location in between Blue Mountain Beach and Grayton Beach. The beach area was beautiful and unseasonably warm for us which was great! I would highly recommend staying at this beautiful home!

Loved the neighborhood and area

  • 3 of 5

Loved this location and the area! The dune lake right at the end of the boardwalk was PERFECT for the kids. They were also kind to let us check in a few hrs early. The house did have some nice amenities- a pack n play, 2 kinds of coffee makers, a beach cart and a couple chairs - but there were several things that just fell short. No beach towels. No trash bags/tp/paper towels/laundry/dishwasher soap.... while I understand it's not a requirement it just would have been nice to have more than 1 trash bag for a house for 10 ppl before we could make it to the store. Not even salt and pepper. When people rent a beach house, they normallly plan to prepare meals. I know EVERYTIME I have ever rented a house there is normally a spice cabinet that is added to. There's normally foil and zip locks and just normal things that gets replenished by each family that rents. But it was fine. We spent the extra money by buying everything and left it, which presumably will be thrown away or taken by the maids. We also purchased another beach cart and several toys and left them for the next people. It wasn't a vacation ruiner but definitely a bummer to have to worry about that.

The house was tastefully decorated and very quaint but we had several maintenance issues with the property. The first thing was that the previous guests had a pet that peed in the master on the carpet and in a few places in the bathroom and it was not cleaned by the maids before arrival. Will did come and clean it the very same day but it was just gross thinking about what else may have been missed. The internet did not work day 1. Front door knob and another bedroom door known fell off EVERYTIME we opened and closed the door for the first 4 days until maintenance finally came and fixed it. The kitchen sink on the island has a very loose faucet and it leaks very heavily into the cabinet below. The second bathroom shower upstairs leaked onto the floor below all over the linen bench through the motion sensor as well. Every. Time. (Both issues were not fixed when reported) I also think the house could have been cleaned better. The rugs were all stained, spots on the sofa, etc. We rent a lot of houses with our families and all commented the same. If I were the property owner, I would be upset by the way it is being maintained. Guests should not have to worry about these things on vacation. We plan to purchase a home in Grayton the next few months and we will definitely not be using Blue Swell.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our home. Your feedback is very important to us and is taken seriously to ensure each guest has the best possible experience while on vacation. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the location as we think that’s one of the highlights of this home! At Blue Swell, we take pride in our quick response times as well as our stellar Housekeeping/Maintenance team. Although mistakes do happen, we had one of our Property Managers personally come to the home to correct the housekeeping issues. We do not allow pets at this home and upon further inspection of the reported animal urine, we believe these to be small spills from the previous guest that were sanitized & cleaned upon the Property Manager’s arrival. When the leak was reported, we had a Maintenance Tech go to the home to inspect the issue but found no evidence of a leak after testing. We are happy to report that all handles, knobs, and faucets have been securely tightened and the property has been inspected from top to bottom for both housekeeping and maintenance related items. All of our vacation homes come with what we call starter amenities which includes the basic needs of your stay. Items such as spices can be contaminated and as much as we would love to provide beach toys, it’s not something we include in our vacation rentals. We apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you for choosing Blue Swell and we encourage you to give us another try!

Great home, very comfortable for multiple kids and adults

  • 4 of 5

This was a beautiful home, three very comfortable bedrooms and a loft area with bunk beds for kids. Kitchen was large, modern and well equipped. Area is a nice quiet area away from some of the more overly busy stretches on 30A. There is a great walking/biking trail off the road along this section of 30A one family member took long runs each morning along this path.

If you stay here make sure they give you the code for the gate. Minor over sight with our booking but they have a calling service after hours so even though we were arriving after office hours this was resolved quickly. In fact any issues we had from a light out in a walk in closet to TVs that didn't work were resolved quickly and with very helpful staff. Even items we had marked as not urgent.

In summary, house was great, staff was great and location is a nice neighborhood with two pools.

Gorgeous house and fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week at Four C's Retreat. The house was perfect for our needs. It was beautifully decorated as seen in the pictures. Beds were comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. The heated pool in the neighborhood was great as it was chilly a couple days during our stay. The house is a super easy walk to the beach. It's in the front of the neighborhood closest the beach access which is a huge plus. There are no stairs at all along boardwalk which was amazing! Owners provided a beach cart which we used to roll our stuff straight from front front porch to sand with no stairs to navigate. We will definitely be back!

Great house with a great location

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as pictured online. Very well maintained, still feels new. We had a baby with us and the unexpected extras of a pack and play, baby gate, and high chair were nice to find. Comfortable beds and quality linens and towels always help to make a stay more comfortable. Neighborhood was quiet and you can't beat the location for quick access to everything on 30A and beyond. It is a short walk to the beach but the picturesque walkway to get there makes up for it. We would definitely book again!
