False Advertising

  • 2 of 5

Proximity to the beach was great and we had a wonderful time at the beach, however the house does not sleep 14. The house sleeps 11-12 depending on whether you can get 2 people on the futon upstairs. The pull out queen sleeper sofa in the pictures and description was nowhere to be found and instead, there was a smaller futon. Also, they are counting an air mattress as accommodations for 2 people. With that thinking, I'm not sure why they don't add 3 more air mattresses and say it sleeps 20...

Also, the first floor bathtub had sewage back up into and created a poop smell for the length of the trip. Based on other reviews stating the same problem, it sounds like this is not a priority to get fixed. We called and they sent someone out the next day, however, the issue was not resolved before we left and we could not use that bathroom for most of the trip.

With 14 adults, these 2 issues were bigger problems then if we'd had fewer people, but the most frustrating part of it was that they wouldn't give us even a partial refund off our bill considering that it did not sleep 14 adults. I only requested this because of the false advertising in the description and pictures.

I would recommend finding a different house to use due to the sewage and other issues. They said they fixed the issue before, but it was obvious that they didn't. I prefer not to take that gamble on my 1 week of from work.

Beach House

  • 1 of 5

We had maintenance issues as soon as we got there . The front door handle came off my son put it back on the ceiling fan didn't work in the bottom floor bedroom . The lounge chair was broke the bolt was out of the back . Let's just say the house was not worth the money I payed .

Owner's Response: Dear Ms. Parchman - We always want feedback from our guests and appreciate what you submitted. As the General Manager I check into every review, especially if there is an issue. In reviewing you reservation I do not see where you contacted us for any issues in the home. Our phones are answered 24/7 and our calls are also recorded and I don't show your number as an incoming call during your entire stay. You can also submit a work order on line and I did not see one on that portal either. We also call our guests the day after arrival to make sure that everything is to their satisfaction. We contacted you on the Sunday the 28th and left a voicemail message but did not hear back from you. We certainly would have taken care of any deficiency that you had immediately had we known. I also reviewed the inspector's checklist just prior to your arrival and did not see the issues you listed so we apologizes if we missed those items. As you can see we have a number of checks and balances for our guests and we value each of them, as well as, our owners. We will use your information to further train our team and we appreciate your input. Thank you for choosing Blue Swell.

Looks can be deceiving

  • 2 of 5


- Massive House, would definitely accommodate more than the 7 we were staying with

- Access to the Beach was easy. Crosswalk across the somewhat busy Thomas Dr to Seltzer Park

- Plenty of clean towels and linens


- Dirty. At first glance, house looks clean. Deep down it's not. Grimy handrails, floors so dirty white socks turn color.

- Livability. First floor living room has a 3 seat couch and a chair. Not conducive to late night TV watching before bed.

- Lack of response from property management for issues

There were 7 of us, 4 adults and 3 children under 13. The house was big enough for us to have our own areas, but it was hard to spend any time together as a family in any other room besides the kitchen/dining room due to the furniture choices. The biggest issue? The lack of response from management when we had a sewer back up in the first floor tub. Yes, they sent a plumber to resolve the issue (though interesting to read other reviews commenting with the same sewage smell). However, they did not send a cleaning crew to clean the first floor bathroom after the backup. Forcing all to have to go up one or two flights of stairs for the last 3 days for stay.

This house is a rental house, not a home. Find someone with a home to rent and you'll be much happier.

Unresponsive unsanitary

  • 1 of 5

We rented this property for a family vacation with our kids and grandkids. Neither of the door codes worked when we first got to the house. That issue was settled with a phone call. There was a faint sewer smell outside, but we assumed that it was coming from the garbage can located right by the driveway. It quickly became obvious tha the ground level shower didn't drain and the toilet didn't flush. I emailed the management company and they responded that they would put in a work order. No one came that day. The following day there was a putrid smell coming from the ground level bathroom. We found actual raw sewage bubbling up into the bathtub. It was indescribably disgusting. We immediately called the management company and they said someone would come within the hour. By this time there was a widening pool of sewage forming by the driveway as well.Their maintenance guy arrived quickly and didn't even have to go inside but saw and smelled the puddle by the driveway. He said they would send a plumber to fix. We left so as not to subject the kids to the stench. When we returned the issue had been apparently fixed. However, there was still sewage in the bathtub. I mean literally human poop! I called the management company again to have them send someone to clean it which they said would happen first thing in the morning. No one ever came during the 3 days after this event to clean it. I sent two or three additional emails which went unanswered. Unbelievable.
