NICE HOUSE, BAD SERVICE

July 2020

Justin H. We arrived on July 8 for our wedding anniversary. Blue Swell called me that morning to advise that the a/c unit had gone out in the rental, but that a new unit would be arriving the following day and, in the meantime, they would be providing two portable a/c units for the home. When we arrived, there were two box fans in the home, all the windows were closed, and the thermostat next to the bed read 95 degrees. We arrived a little after 5:00 p.m. and Blue Swell was closed, so I called the emergency number to find out where the portable a/c units where. The answering service stated that they would contact the on-call person, but they had just put a call through to them, and I would receive a call back. I never received a return call. My wife and I went to dinner and came back to go to bed. Hot and frustrated, I got a little sleep and woke bright and early with the sun.

At 8:00, the a/c guy showed up and started working on the unit. He said "I thought they were going to provide you with some a/c units" and my thought was "me too." Shortly after that, Blue Swell called to respond to a text that I sent into their service. They proceeded to just say that "we dropped the ball" and provided no other explanation or remedy for the situation. I understand that the a/c unit is not their fault, but certainly failing to provide a remedy is. At 9:30ish, the construction crew began driving pilings into the ground for the home that is being built. That process caused the entire house to shake. We ended up going to the beach for the rest of the day.

The information provides that "beach access is across the street" which is true to an extent. The house is located in the middle of the neighborhood and you have to walk to the east side to find the access. Blue Swell did not provide the code for the gate to use the access. They also do not provide that you cannot use the beach closest the access, so it ends up being ~.5 mile walk.

GREAT LOCATION, POORLY MANAGED RENTAL

August 2020

Upon entering the bedroom the comforter was immediately noticed by stains on the top right corner. This led us to further investigate the bed, when we discovered additional issues, all of which are listed below. Because of the discoveries we were forced to wash the bed sheets before going to bed and did not use the comforter last night. Between going to bed much later than anticipated and not utilizing the comforter, it was not a pleasant night of sleep.
A) Stains on top right portion of comforter
B) Seemingly blood spots on pillow that also seem to have been unsuccessfully cleaned with a bleach like detergent that faded the red color, and multiple yellow stains on same pillow.
C) LARGE cluster(s) of hair under sheet/comforter
D) multiple stains on mattress cover, some large
C) Several spiders found in bedroom area, one within bedsheets
2) Living Area
After dealing with the master bedroom, it was clearly evident the living area had also not been cleaned prior to our arrival. The noticeable issues are described below.
A) Sand Across the tufts on leather ottoman.
B) Sand and sticky substances on TV remote controls
C) Sand and sticky residue on bar top table
D) Seemingly makeup residue on couch pillow
Lastly, we have discovered stains on some bath linens and the base boards in the master bath are very noticeably dirty with dust/dirt/sand etc. Overall, extremely disappointing and not what we expected based on pictures and any descriptions of this property.
Also, it's important to note that Blue Swell sent a new cleaning group out AFTER I called two times. We never received any follow up AFTER the cleaning and Blue Swell never responded to my email of 10+ pictures for the managers "meeting". Highly disappointed

RELAXING VACATION

Shane T. Loved the rental! Super cute. Very clean.

GREAT LOCATION!

October 2020

All in all, it was a good property. The location was perfect, especially because we had friends staying at Sanctuary by the Sea which is just across the street. Beach access is convenient. The unit was clean and nicely decorated. However, it would have been nice to have more than 1 coffee cup and some regular silverware and a small paring knife. Coffeemaker is too small. A Keurig would even have been better.
