Great place !
This was a great place and perfect for a large group ! Everything we needed ! Thank you !
Everything you need.
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
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!
Lovely house, unresponsive property management
The house was very nice for our stay at Grayton Beach. The housekeeping did a super job and the house was well appointed for our stay. We enjoyed the gated neighborhood and the pool just a minute down the road. Unfortunately I submitted a non-urgent request online with Blue Swell and they didn't respond to my request. The master bedroom porch was in the middle of a repair so boards were missing and the new lumber was sitting out there. I simply needed to know if any workers needed access to the house so I could make plans. This would be a five star review if the property management was responsive.
Loved the neighborhood and area
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.
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
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.
