Guestbook comments from the manager

We came down for a relative's wedding on May 5th and found that the owner was very accommodating when we needed to come in early for the rehearsal dinner. We stayed through the following week and enjoyed the pool and hot tub as well. The outside shower was a wonderful addition with the warm water was fantastic for a quick rinse off after being at the beach all day so you don't track in sand! It was a great vacation for our family. Linens were provided and dishes and silverware are available. That helped to make our stay much more enjoyable

Not as clean as I would have hoped.

  • 3 of 5

I’m giving this house 3.5 Stars and would have been 4 Stars if cleaner.

The house was the perfect layout for our family. It was a family of five, plus my sister and her two kids and my mother. Me and my husband had the downstairs and the rest of the family slept upstairs.

The porch was amazing and we spent a few nights out there just talking after the kids went to sleep.

The location to the beach, shopping and bike trail is perfect.

My complaints would be that the refrigerator upstairs in the main living area was missing a door shelf and it did not make ice. Since this was the main living area, I felt it missed the extra storage of that one shelf and was a pain with the lack of ice. We purchased bag ice to accommodate.

The main complaint would be the cleanliness and the cleaning staff. We were supposed to check in at 4 but when we arrived at 4, cleaning ladies were still there. After driving for hours in the car and not be able to get into the house was a little annoying but by 4:45 we got into the house. However, the house was not very clean. The dust on the lampshades and window blinds is thick. We felt the need to clean all week. There was a lot of dog hair in the bottom unit. We are dog owners and understand that this happens but for the cleaning crew to have just left, it was strange. Then when checking out, the cleaning crew was there at 9am while we were packing up the car asking if we were almost ready to leave. Checkout is 10 am and for them to be asking if we were almost finished an hour before checkout rubbed me wrong and then we felt rushed. We left the house at 9:30 am. For them to be in the house at 9:30 am cleaning until 4:45 pm, the house should be a lot cleaner.

Again, the location, layout and amenities suited our needs but it was not as clean as I would have hoped.

2018 Family vacation

  • 1 of 5

This was supposed to be a stress free family vacation with our children and grandchildren. The experience was awfull from the night we arrived. Cleanliness was not a priority. It wasn't until three days after our arrival that a housekeeping service arrived to clean the 1st floor bathroom and living area. I left my clothes in the suitcase during the entire stay. It appears to be a re-occurring problem and I wish I had heeded the prior reviews before the vacation began. I would not recommend this property.

Nice small property.

  • 2 of 5

The house was tidy inside and out. The bedrooms were small, with 2 of them lacking storage space for clothing. The large screened in porch would have been nice for morning coffee and relaxing, however, there was construction going on the street starting at 8 A.M. in the morning and lasting throughout the day the whole week we were there. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The property is a very short walk to the beach. Due to almost daily rain, it would have fit our needs more if there had been an indoor staircase connecting the 2 living areas. Overall we felt this property was a bit overpriced.

We had a great week: July 7-14, 2018

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a 2 min. walk to a beautiful & very large seemingly private beach, this is the place for you. The home is located in a quiet area. The pool and hot tub area is very nice -- we felt like we were in a small resort. The landscape was nice and provided shade during the day. Note if you have young kids: the pool is not gated and very close to the driveway, so you'll need to keep an eye on small children. The screened in porch was one of the reasons we picked the home and we loved it! So nice with adequate furniture for the whole family! Spent a lot of time there as well. We used the entire house - up and down and really liked the layout for our family. The TV in the downstairs unit family room is very large, we felt like we were in a movie theatre. :) We would like to stay here again, we enjoyed it that much. Property manager was very responsive.

Great House, so close to beach

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location. Easy bike to Coligney Plaza, or quick car ride to entrance of Sea Pines.

Given location the actual beach is not crowded. When we looked either way on the beach it was crowded, but not our little area of beach.

The internet needs to be better. The router is downstairs, so you had to go to the apartment to use internet. I had to do some work, and would have liked to have done it on the screened in porch, but I had to go downstairs.

Dryer upstairs needs to be replaced, it ruins clothes. It burned spots on several of our items.

Wish the kitchen drawers were a little cleaner and organized. Felt a little dirty.

Mattresses in the bunk room might need to be replaced soon.

Overall we liked the property, and plan to book it again.
