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!

Great location on 30A with open house layout.

  • 4 of 5

The house has a great floor plan with spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. The listing stated a 'short walk to the beach' which, in reality was over 0.35 mile one-way or about 10 minutes. This may be fine for some, but when you have toddlers, a beach cart, beach bags, etc. over a wooded boardwalk, this is more annoying. That is just to where the beach access starts. If you have a tent of any kind, the beach attendant makes you walk further down the beach to the state park (where alcohol is prohibited) so that the immediate access is reserved for those renting their umbrellas and chairs.

The house did provide many items to avoid bringing/buying your own such as beach umbrella, beach cart, beach chairs, boogie board, and pack 'n' play (although with no sheets). and plenty of linens. There was wifi available but had extremely low, intermittent access for the entire stay (continuous error messages stating 'no wifi', 'reenter password') so do not rely on using the wifi for work or fast access.

The property was very clean upon arrival for the standard levels of cleaning (floors, bathrooms, kitchen, etc). However, the rental property could use a deep or second-level cleaning such as dusting (all sets of kitchen lights, stair banisters).

The listing states a gas grill, however, upon arrival charcoal was in the grill. The gas burners were deteriorated (due to environment? use of charcoal?) so some previous renter used charcoal. However, the gas tank remained chained to the grill where hot charcoals were used. For safety, we opted to skip the grill.

Overall, the house was a nice property, but we are not likely to stay here again due to the proximity to the beach and using all our monthly cell phone data in one week.

Perfect Vacation Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay on Barton's Way! The beach was a quick 5 minute walk on the boardwalk. The house was beautiful and well kept. Had two beach wagons, beach chairs, and everything you could possibly need to accommodate you. There was a cute ice cream shop right down the road that was perfect for the evenings.The only hassle was all the codes being different for the gate, house, beach, and pool. If you didn't keep your phone on you it was impossible to remember them all. Overall it was a great stay and we would definitely recommend!!

Everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

We are enjoyed our stay here. It's a very nice place. The winter weather was unseasonably cool. But, we knew that was a possibility. My only complaint was the broadcast TV. We could not figure out how to turn the regular TV channels on. The main TV had 5 remote controls. We were able to watch Netflix and Hulu via their system. But, zero tips or instructions on how to use the TV. They really need to leave a handout for it.

Fun place, needs some upkeep

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights at this gorgeous place. There were plenty of amenities (toiletries, towels, etc) and good customer service beforehand. We were prepared for both check-in and -out because of good communication from the company (Blue Swell) via emails. While not directly on the beach, the proximity was close enough to tote wagons containing all our beach items. The only downfall was that the place needs some upkeep. It wasn't a deal-breaker, but this gem needs some deep carpet cleaning (master upstairs), the couch was a bit soiled, and the pillows were flat. Overall, it was a nice and relaxing stay. Thanks for sharing the home with us!
