Your own private lane makes you feel special right from the start. The sparkling clean house, cozy decor, beautiful porch & deck, hammock under the trees & the cool breeze from the woods transport you to the ultimate vacation state-of-mind. For a little break into reality, the cottage is equipped with internet & 2 TVs. Lee & Rosezell were wonderful homeowners. They love their house & their guests and take care of them to the best of their abilities. We were 6 people staying here and had one of the most comfortable, memorable, value-for-money vacations. Grocery store, beaches, golf courses, hammock & village boutique shops & the beautiful Brookgreen gardens all within 5-10 minutes away. Skip the expensive, crowded myrtle beach hotels, kick back & enjoy the tranquility at the Rose cottage. You cannot go wrong with this choice!
