Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Although this was not our first visit to the Swann Keys community... it was our first stay in this home. We love the peace and quiet of Swann Keys and it's ammenities. We loved the layout of the home. It was neat and clean upon our arrival. Unfortunately.. we realized late Saturday evening that we had no hot water. My husband called the property manager on Sunday. Although she did her best to resolve the problem on Sunday; we went without hot water till Tuesday afternoon. This didn't deter us from enjoying ourselves although cold showers are not my thing. We were compensated for our inconvenience. The Community pool is great plus a small miniature golf course and playground. The second story deck is awesome; with breath taking views. The sun room and screened in porch are a plus. It is a wonderful, cozy, homey set up. I simply " love " the living room sofa and love seat. If the owners read this review... please let me know what type of recliner sofa that is and where to find one?? If you have a boat this community is great although it is best if you have a pontoon type craft. I could spend most of my week just relaxing on the back deck. The large picnic table on the deck was great for enjoying our crab and clam bake without making a mess in the dining room. Crabs large enough to keep were caught right off the dock and clams were dug up in Assateague. The neighbors were friendly. I would definitely stay here again!!

Owner's Response: Thanks a lot for the review. You don't often get a good review from guests that go without hot water for days. We really appreciate your patience and Lynne's work to get the right plumber in there to make the fix. As far as the sofa and love seat, the sofa is from Johnny Janosik Furniture and the love seat is from Steve's Furniture on Rt. 13 (I think it's Laurel DE). Very kind of you to go out of your way to leave a review after your hot water inconvenience. Thank you. Chris

Tranquil on the water

  • 4 of 5

Only a few minutes drive from clean, well maintained beaches, we found this home to be a lovely oasis from our all too often all to busy days. We particularly enjoyed the rooftop second story deck which overlooks a tranquil inlet. If the weather decides the beach is not on offer the large screened in porch was the perfect spot for us to cozy up with a good book. We appreciated that the master suite is separated from the other bedrooms so that if kiddos slumber sooner that we did, there was plenty of alternative space. We found the neighbors to be friendly, shops & restaurants nearby and handy. We would definitely be keen to return again.

A beautiful view for a relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 5th or 6th year I have vacationed here. I have a very high stress job and I want my vacation to be low key and relaxing. This place always does the trick. It is in a lovely, quiet neighborhood with super friendly folks wherever you go. The house is beautifully decorated and always immaculate when we arrive. We particularly love the screened porch to enjoy our morning coffee and view the water and natural flora. There is a lovely . well kept community pool available for our use which we love. And within a very short distance there are several very good restaurants and shopping sites, multiple fresh produce stands and a very nice site to antique shop. If you crave the hustle and bustle of the OC boardwalk or any of the beaches, you are only a couple of miles away. We love this place and now , for the past 2 years have went from staying 2 weeks to 3 weeks.

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Love this place! This is the second year my family has stayed in this home in Delaware and it never disappoints! The house is perfect for my family, my husband and 2 small children, but could easily fit more. I love the back deck and view behind the relaxing to sit outside in the mornings and watch the sunrise with a cup of coffee. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful with a great playground and pool area for the kids! It is so close to ocean city beach and boardwalk and bethany beach (which we love), but also far enough removed that it gets away from the energetic pace of ocean city. The house is very comfortable and well-stocked with movies, boardgames and whatever else you may need. Great vacation!!

Nice place..everything you need.

Loved it, but my husband had to leave me as the dog sitter was not doing his job at our house. My grandson and his girlfriend stayed with me. Only suggestion is to replace shower heads with dual shower heads. Can you catch fish or crabs in that water?
