Beaches are lovely and not crowded at all. Pool was very clean and grounds well kept. We look forward to coming back. The house cleaning service did an awesome job. Also everything was very clean.”

Wonderful property about 50 feet from boardwalk

  • 4 of 5

Very nice property and responsive management. I picked this house so my children would be safe walking to the beach. It's on a cul-de-sac about 50 feet from a boardwalk that leads to the pool and beach. We loved the house, the small community pool (with community toys!) and the beach was beautiful and uncrowded. The interior is updated, has nice finishes, and it was clean and odor free when we arrived. It has a great layout. It's on the small size to sleep 8 but we we did and it never felt cramped. I highly recommend taking a long walk at Stump Hole Beach. It's part of the USAF base but public for walking. It has a pristine wild beach vibe I haven't seen anywhere else. I recommend kayaking the bay. We saw a large golden eagle and 3 bald eagles while paddling. Note, cell phone reception is spotty and the internet isn't the best but on vacation tolerable for me. I'd give it 5 stars except for 2 things. The water at our beach was a little murky at the shoreline and I didn't like cars driving on the beach. When one has little children (we have a 3 & 5 year old) to care for even slow beach traffic is unwelcomed. Overall I really like this property and the kids loved it.

Beyond words!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation house is just beyond words. Went down to Sweetwater from mid-November through the end of December. We celebrated my birthday and simply tried to regroup from an unexpected death in the family. The locals are very friendly and helpful. We toured all the neighboring towns, climbed lighthouses, tried many restaurants (Peppers was our favorite), attended the Christmas parade and programs in town (delightful), explored a cavern, grilled dinners, and enjoyed the deck--just truly had a wonderful time. Simply walking on the beach and collecting shells was a joy. The kitchen is equipped for a chef ... it truly is unbelievable. Plenty of space in living room for large gathering of family. All the beds were comfortable and lots of closet space (hard to find in rental home). Inclement weather brought on tvs with Netflix, movies, games and books galore. Owners have put a lot of thought in accommodating renters. We miss Sweetwater; can't wait to go back. If you want a peaceful, easy feeling on vacation, this is THE house to rent!

Nicely Equipped Kitchen and close to the beach and pool

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week away with our family and friends! It was really wonderful to get away.

Just a few issues - there was dog hair ALL OVER and we had two in our party allergic. The dryer took forever to dry a regular size load of laundry and the air conditioning unit is directly below the screened in porch, so it was not able to be utilized as we would have liked because of the heat.

Bonuses - The kitchen was so well equipped that we did not need to bring our coffee maker and Ninja blender. There was a Keurig and a regular pot. The oven cooked evenly and there was even a crock pot!

The upstairs bathroom is beautiful. Spacious step in shower.

The TV was very nice in the main living quarters and the downstairs bedrooms (upstairs master would never turn on.) We had 3 young children so they were needed while cooking dinner to distract them from wanting to go back to the beach and pool!

Short walk to the beach and the pool and we used the cart with chairs daily. The gas grill was a wonderful bonus as we cooked dinner 5 of the 7 nights and 6 of 7 lunches.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your input! We wish that you would have contacted us during your stay to address some of the items you mentioned, like the dog hair, the television. We strive to make our guest's stay truly enjoyable and in the event there is an issue, we welcome the opportunity to correct it, so that it does not impact the rest of your stay. Our cleaning staff does a terrific job and would have been happy to come back out, to make sure you were well taken care of. And, we would have gotten Mediacom to address the TV, so that you could use it. We hope the you do come back again! Sincerely, Cindy Trubee Knot Forgotten Vacation Rentals
