Great week at Swept Away
We had a wonderful time during our stay at Swept Away. Beth, the owner, was very communicative and response to any questions we had both before and during our stay. The house was large, comfortable and clean. There were plenty of utensils, dishes, pots, etc. We did bring extra beach towels as those are not provided, but Beth is very upfront about that. We did bring extra bath towels, but really did not need as there was a full set of towels for each of us and we did laundry when we were there. Little things like a sponge to wash dishes and a few more frying pans would be useful but overall we were very pleased and that would certainly not deter us from staying again. It was a short walk, about 7 minutes to the beach. You do cross a main road, but there is a cross walk, and motorists usually stop for you without issue. The beaches were beautiful and not crowded which is a big plus for us! There are grocery stores, shops and restaurants nearby. We visited the Currituck lighthouse which is only about 3 miles from the house, the Wright Brother museum which was about a 40 minute drive and also Hatteras Park for horseback riding on the beach which was a cool experience. We did not use the hot tub, or access the club house or pool as we were content to be on the beach every day:). We would definitely recommend Swept Away to anyone who is looking for a relaxing time in Corolla and would definitely return in the future.
An enjoyable stay at Swept Away.
Our family had a wonderful time during our stay at Swept Away. The architecture of the house is very striking. Beth was readily available to answer any concerns or questions we had and provided lots of information about the area with suggestions as to where to eat and activities that are available. The community clubhouse is a big plus and easy to get to. We chose not to use the hot tub since we were there in the middle of a hot spell and no one felt like getting in hot water when the outside temperature was in the upper nineties. However, the people who serviced the hot tub did show up to make any adjustments had they been needed.
I do have a few suggestions which we were used to having during our stay in other rentals. These by no means kept us from having a grand time. The house definitely could use some updating. Several kitchen and bathroom knobs and cabinet facings were loose and a few were almost falling off when they were opened. It would be nice if the owners provided floor mats in the bathrooms so it wouldn’t be so slippery getting out of the tubs. Fortunately we read from previous renters to bring extra towels so we used the owner’s towels for floor mats and used our towels for drying off. Also, in the powder room it would be more inviting if a hand towel or two was made available after washing ones hands. There were no kitchen towels as stated so we just used paper towels that we bought. Other suggestions would be that the couch was in need of a good cleaning, one of the bathroom drawers in the upper king bedroom had some dead bugs and mosquitos in it, just an oversight on the part of the cleaning staff which isn’t a big deal other than the fact that I’m a clean freak and have an aversion to bugs, and the queen bed in the middle level was most uncomfortable for those who used it. They kept rolling toward the middle and the bed was pretty squeaky each time they moved. Fortunately, they didn’t make too big a deal of it but enough of a deal as to mention it to us. That did bother me since I’m the one who booked the house and would want my family to have a good nights sleep.
All in all we enjoyed our vacation very much at Swept Away.
Great family getaway
The house was great and perfect for our family of 6. Kids got to have their own beds and were very excited about the hot tub on the top deck. They also enjoyed the loft/lookout area to play games and read. The beach was a short walk and never too crowded. I usually dropped off family with all the beach gear but cart and chairs, etc provided if choosing to walk. The house was well-maintained and close to shops, grocery store, and mini-golf - could walk to all. The clubhouse was further than I expected but wasn’t aware of the size of the community. This was an easy bike ride for us and also nice walk. We did not take advantage of the pool or workout areas due to only open when clubhouse staffed 9-5 daily. We did enjoy the on-site pier that is near the clubhouse - kids did crabbing and had a blast. We also rented kayaks and launched from this areas. The kayaks are arranged through a local company, not directly rented at the clubhouse though they do rent other items. The owner gave nice recommendations for pre-arrival and we took advantage of recommended Sooey’s Barbeque family meal on arrival day; another big hit. We brought extra towels for the beach and would recommend this. Beth (owner) provided her cellphone number for contact and was easy to reach. Great place and enjoyable vacation!
Property was great! Clean and had all we needed. Clubhouse and beach parking were less than a 5 minute drive away!! Ownership was prompt in answering questions prior to the trip and resolving the one issue we had during. Would definitely stay again!!!
We had 6 adults and 3 kids. Size of house was perfect for our group. Driveway easily fit all cars. Kitchen/great room area was large enough for everyone to hang out. Decks were great. Hot tub is also nice and well maintained.
The distance to the beach was good. A 5 to 10 minute walk. Some past reviewers had complained about the busy road, but there is a painted cross walk with signs and cars stopped to let us cross. From our perspective it was easy to get to the beach and the road is not difficult to cross even with young children. Owner provided a beach cart which works well to tote beach toys.
Owner is very responsive before and during the stay. Provided helpful info about Corolla.
While we were very pleased with our stay there were a few negatives:
The biggest issue was that the beds were not comfortable. The queen bed made lots of noise, something may be wrong with the frame or box springs. The other 2 Kings were also not comfortable, mattress was either too cheap or worn out. The pillows were not good either. One couple brought their own pillows and slept much better than the rest of us.
Owner is upfront about only providing 1 towel per person. However these towels are a bit thin and worn. I would recommend to future guests that you bring your own for that reason and to have extra in hand. Washing the towels during our stay was no big deal for us.
Other minor issue was that the coffee pot is incredibly slow to brew.
We also found a bit of trash under one of the beds (from previous guests). Otherwise house was very clean.
Neighborhood pool was great, but closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Overall this was a great place to stay, and we felt a great value as well.
Family Time in Corolla
This is a great property with plenty of room for the whole family. The location was great; close to grocery store and restaurants. It took only 5-10 minutes to walk to the beautiful beach. Most beds were very comfy, except for the queen in the middle floor bedroom. It was a bit lumpy and the frame could use replacing, as it’s very noisy. All else was great and we thoroughly enjoyed our week
