Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

We were in Palmetto Bluff for a family wedding so all our adult children and their spouses were along. This property was perfect for us! Four bedrooms, each with a private bath, as well as a spacious kitchen/dining/room/living room area where we were all able to congregate. Not to mention the screened in outside porch that was great for a late night chat. Since it was hot when we were there, we didn't use the fireplace or fire pit but I can imagine how nice they would be in cooler weather. The house is in wonderful condition (other than a broken gate hinge) and is beautifully appointed. It was like living in a designer showhouse! We loved it. It was extremely convenient to the general store (across the street) and within an easy walk of Buffalo's restaurant. We rented a golf cart (my husband has mobility issues) which worked perfectly for us. We only used our car once when we left the property. The wedding we attended was on the square by the old resort building and chapel. It was a spectacular setting, especially with the moonrise over the water. Everything was perfect. And we had the best rental agent you could ask for! Arlene Flick met us at the house when we checked in, explained everything about the house and the resort, and was constantly available for any questions we had. She was extremely responsive and a delight to be with. Overall, it was a wonderful experience for all of us. Can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a comprehensive review. I think anyone can get the feeling of how close the house is to the chapel which is so important when renting for a wedding. You all were a really fun group and I am so glad the house worked out so well for everyone. Thank you again and I really hope that I see you all back here again. Arlene

Just delightful!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house and another in the village for a 60th birthday celebration. The house was just perfect for four adult couples. Just a short walk or ride to the village. We had a dinner for 16 catered on the porch and it worked out just great. House is clean and well appointed all around. So nice to have all the switches labeled! The Sonos sound system was so easy to use...we just downloaded the Sonos APP and we were able to play all our music off our phones. Loved the showers...water pressure fantastic! The caretaker is also great...just a phone call away and was a real help with all pre trip questions and arrangements. Hope to be back again soon! I would highly recommend this house!

Owner's Response: Thanks Peter! I am so glad that you were able to enjoy the evening even though it was raining so hard that night but the covered porch was a blessing :) I am also glad that the newly installed SONOS came in handy for the party. You all were so great to have at the house and I look forward to having you all again. See you soon. Arlene

Yet another amazing stay at 5 Rockingham!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay in three years at 5 Rockingham and once again, it met all of our expectations!! My family and I love this house and Palmetto Bluff. There are seven of us and one beautiful chocolate lab and we all feel perfectly at home when we open the door. The house is in excellent condition, beds are extremely comfortable, kitchen beautifully stocked, the surround sound synced perfectly with our play lists on phones, two grills (gas and charcoal), everyone has their own bathroom, and dining room table seats us all. We love the rocking chairs on the back deck, the fact the yard is fenced in and the screened in porch is incredible for afternoon chats, playing games and relaxing after dinner.

Every year, we try something new - this year it was kayaking which was awesome: great breeze on the river, dolphins swimming, exercise and total peace on the river. Next year: paddle boarding!!! We so look forward to huge pool, ordering lunch poolside, exploring the entire place by bikes, climbing the treehouse, swinging, golf, shopping at the close by market, making s'mores after eating at the River Club, and just plain relaxing, eating and being together.

Arlene is wonderful - when rain was predicted, I emailed her and she provided a list of other things to do - and said bad weather usually bypasses Palmetto Bluff and she was right - it rained briefly twice instead of the five days predicted!! She came by and showed us surround sound, reset the Internet, gave a list of child friendly restaurants and is very responsive and helpful. I feel very confident that if any problem arose, Arlene would solve it!!

We are all planning our next trip - Palmetto Bluff is calling us back!!

Overall I would recommend the resort and property. The house was well suited for two families with kids and easy to spread out.

Perfect house, perfect stay, great location. Top-shelf Palmetto Bluff experience!

  • 5 of 5

We rented three houses from Arlene at Palmetto Bluff as part of an extended weekend with about 40 friends. We had a wonderful time, and it was in no small part due to the attention to detail in the condition of the houses we picked.

The 5 Rockingham house is gorgeous, and perfectly maintained. Two big king-sized bedrooms, one queen and one room with two twin beds. I LOVE the Inn, but I don't really know why anyone would stay at the Inn for twice the cost per night in a one-bedroom cottage when you could stay at a house like this, which is quite new (I would say it couldn't be more than a few years old, but it might be older but just perfectly maintained), way more spacious, and so comfortable. You just have to hire your own housekeepers, but that's really not a big deal (and Arlene can arrange this with her wonderful staff), and pay a daily fee (about $50) to have access to the amenities like bikes, pool and gym. This house is a 5-minute walk to the little town square with the restaurant and Inn...but you can ride your bike there in two minutes. I don't think there's a need for a golf cart if staying in this house, but you can rent one for about $60 a day if you need one.

I'm reviewing all the houses themselves (as I did above), but wanted to make sure I gave plenty of credit to Arlene, so I'm listing my thoughts about her service here because it was applicable to all the houses! :

From the get-go, she was so on-top of everything, answering my questions about topics from soaps (what kind are in the house?) to extermination (how often are they de-bugged!?) to Internet (how do I restart it if it crashes?), and ensuring our photographer's name was left at the gatehouse. She was pretty much ALWAYS available by text, whenever we had a question.

She couldn't have been nicer and more involved (she lives really close, on-site), and treats the homes as if they are her own...If I lived here and wanted to rent my house out, I'd absolutely ask her to represent it. If you come to Palmetto Bluff expecting 5-star amenities (and an experience totally on-par with the Inn without having to pay the premium of going through the Inn), you should definitely rent from Arlene.

Car: recommended

Outside Palmetto Bluff is an independent retailer that specializes in outdoor activities for individuals and families. The activities may be for an hour (paddle boarding, kayaking) or an all day adventure (tour Dafuskie Island or an all day water excursion for the kids). I highly recommend this company and they are located right near the boat house in Palmetto Bluff.
