“Still a great choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013

We returned to Swept Away with a larger group requiring 3 of the cabins. After an initial schedule hiccup was handled very quickly and painlessly, the rest of the week long visit went extremely well, All 3 groups had nothing but positives to say about the location and the facilities.

One note of warning - depending on your GPS, you may end up at the cabins or 15 minutes away.

Many other locations in the area had vacancies all well while Swept Away was fully booked all week. That speaks volumes for me.

A great location, convenient enough to Cavendish, but just far enough from the crowds and noise and the hospitality can't be beat.

Had a great stay at these cottages. Stayed in cottage #16 which is a bit secluded and it was amazing. So clean, and had all we needed. Fresh towels every morning. The staff in the office were super friendly and accomadating. Great experience overall!!! Will definitly go again and reccomend to all my friends and family!

The cottages were great. We had four adults and 2 kids in a two bedroom. We decided to use an air mattress for the kids so we didn't have to use the pull out sofa bed. Clean towels when needed, including towels for use at the beach. Every household amenity was available and all the pots, pans, dishes and cutlery you would need for your stay. Only a few little things that I didn't love. tv had bad reception, wifi signal wasn't good, games room was damp and smelly but it could be because it was right by the pool. All in all I would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone.

A group of families joined us in booking cottages for the May long weekend. It was our first visit and we were very impressed with the high quality of the cottages, which seemed very new. They were really well-equipped and even though the weather didn't always cooperate, we were very happy and comfortable in our beautifully-appointed cottages. The kitchens are well-equipped, and the layout of the cottage is very conducive to getting together. The grounds were beautiful and scenic, and the kids will love the amenities like the outdoor pool and hot tub, and especially, the games room!

We just spent 3 glorious nights at Swept Away cottages in Cavendish. The cottages were modern with all the amenities you would need, moments to the beach. Anyone looking to visit,I would highly recommend this resort!!!

Cavendish can be a bit busy at times so you will need a break from the action. Swept Away is just off the main highway and minutes from town. You don't hear road noise at all. We booked a 2 bedroom executive cottage and couldn't have been happier with the accomodations. Clean, well equipped, and lots of room to unwind. You even get to use their park pass for access to local beaches. The weather was very hot and the AC couldn't keep up so temperatures were a little uncomfortable for sleeping.

The staff will change towels daily (both white for room use and coloured for beach use) if you leave them in the laundry basket on the deck.

The only issue I had was the proximity of our cottage to the pool. Other users had the stereo cranked in the pool area and the noise travelled. Plus, it was so loud that you couldn't use the game room. The staff took care of it when we mentioned it to them.

We will definitely stay again when in the area.

Room Tip: Check the location of your cottage on the property before booking as some are more remote and quiet...

My husband & 2 boys 12 & 11 stayed here in july, we had the cottage that was alone behind a line of trees, it was very very clean the resort gave us a beach pass , that saved alot of $$$ Ping pong was a big hit with my son, the pool was very clean, not to many kids around when we stay our 3 nights, but they made their own fun!! internet was So so , I really didn't like the open area no trees, we do alot of camping & I like that type of atmoshere!! we had our own fire pit that was nice, the only unit that does!! & they didn't have any for the other units the days we were there ( Up by the pool & playground) is the other fire pit! next time I will camp at the campground up the road, but it was very nice :))
