Property conditions & facilities

3/5 Okay

It was okay
The house was amazing, and it was perfect for the amount of people that we had. Walking distance from the beach. The only issue I had was the owner or neighbor watched the house the whole time by sitting on the porch with her chair facing the house. It felt uncomfortable like we were doing something wrong yet we were not at all.

5/5 Excellent

Despite the weather our family was able to spend some quality time together and this house was perfect and accommodated our every need

5/5 Excellent

Just As Expected
Everything was just as expected. The neighbors were friendly. Our dogs were able to run around on the enclosed balcony. There was no vehicle beach access, but it was easily accessible by foot. Over all we had a great time and would rent again.

Family Vacation
This family vacation had been in the works for over 10 months... long before we had ever heard the words Corona Virus or Covid -19. Swedes Real Estate was very helpful as we got closer to the actual vacation date, assuring us that most everything was open, with precautions, such as mandatory masks. The house was everything we were expecting, we LOVED the deck and spent a lot of time out there. Beach access is easy peasy to walk but a golf cart is great to have for toting all your gear to the beach. We prepared most of our meals there, the only thing we didnt find was a pizza cutter. The house itself was clean, floors, kitchen, bathrooms, all clean. However, while looking for some lost keys (which we found) several socks (not ours) were found in the couch. A few days later, while searching for ear buds (also found) while looking down the side of the bed, my granddaughter pulled up a pair of mens underwear, again not ours. We made her wash and disinfect her hands twice. Pretty gross. I would suggest a deep clean, moving furniture and cushions are in order. Photos are misleading, not so much the interior tho there are a few changes, all for the better. Some photos show an unobstructed view of the water...this is no longer the case, houses have been built blocking most of the view. All in all, a most enjoyable, much needed, family vacation. We will be back!
