About Bret or Wendi Tuckman

We book this gorgeous home for the owner who purchased it because it was the most private home on the beach! I called him for two years straight trying to convince him to move out and to let me offer this amazing property as a vacation rental so that many others would have the opportunity to enjoy this special home directly on the beach!

Most amazing beach house ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to stay at this beautiful home twice, and it was the most beautiful home on the beach, with breath taking views from every part of the house, everything in the house was gorgeous, the house had such a warm feeling about it, yet it was luxurious from top to bottom, the pool was amazing and the beautiful landscaping around the house made the house even more inviting, this is a must stay place, hotels for us are now a thing of a past, after experiencing Swept Away, the name fits house, would definitely stay again.

Great Week at Swept Away!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week at Swept Away, and we were literally just that. The accommodations were exactly as expected, high end and comfortable. Our kids (6 of them) loved all the nooks and crannies of the house, and the beach!!! Wow, only 49 homes in all of ft lauderdale are direct beachfront, and this is one of the THE BEST! Owner was available at all times, and helped us feel welcome. If you are a large group, this is the place. Hopefully we will be back next year!

Beautiful views and comfortable accomodations

  • 5 of 5

This house has truly beautiful views of the ocean from indoors and out. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook breakfast and dinner. Totally enjoyed the spacious estate that allowed us to spend time together as an extended family and well as time alone. Loved having the heated pool and hot tub. Owner was very accommodating in meeting needs of our group.

Bret (property manager) and Peter (owner) were fantastic. They scrambled late on a Friday afternoon to get my family into this home at the last minute. We were immediately at ease when we arrived at Swept Away. There is an incredible vibe here. Peter welcomed us and showed us around. He was very laid back and checked in with us just enough during our stay to make sure we were comfortable (imagine renting from Jimmy Buffett). The home was very well appointed with all the necessities and tons of extras. It’s a beautiful, comfortable, and very clean home, but it isn’t stuffy or uptight at all. This place is gorgeous, yet we were still able to relax and not panic if we got a couple grains of sand on the floor. But in all honesty we spent almost the entire time on the massive patio or a few steps down on the beach! You won’t find a better or more relaxing place. We will definitely be back. Highly recommended! BOOK IT! You won’t be disappointed! :)

Outstanding house to rent

  • 5 of 5

We just left a great week of family vacation in Ft Lauderdale at this beach front house. The house, and the beach were absolutely terrific and exceeded all expectations. The house was beautiful, very comfortable, nicely furnished, and the beach view was second to none, everyone in the family just LOVED the stay. The owner (Peter) was very helpful and responsive to all questions/requests, Bret and Wendi were great and made the rental - agreement so very easy.

We initially had considered several other properties in Florida for our vacation, however, we all were so pleased to have chosen this one, it was a delightful experience. Definitely a highly recommended vacation place. Bob A
