About Janet and Ted Fine

Life-long Midwesterners currently living in WI. We have three children and two new grandsons. One of our primary reasons for purchasing a beach front unit was the possibility of taking each grandkid swimming, fishing and kayaking on Seabrook.

Janet and Ted Fine purchased this condo in 2007

Why Janet and Ted Fine chose South Carolina

Seabrook is a unique location. A quiet gated mixed community of beautiful homes and well kept villa groupings, Seabrook offers peace and tranquility while many activities are close at hand. In looking for a retirement place we visited Savanah, Hilton Head, Myrtle Beach and Charlotte; none of these locations was even close in quality to Charleston and Seabrook Island. We vacationed on Seabrook for 5 years before we bought our beachfront unit and love it more & more with each visit.

What makes this condo unique

Two championship golf courses, gourmet restaurants, an equestrian center, 14 Har-Tru tennis courts, miles of bike and nature paths, marsh streams for kayaking and over 6 miles of uncrowded sand beaches are available on Seabrook Island. In addition, the city of Charleston with a full range of dining and cultural activities is only 30 minutes away. We especially enjoy swimming in the Edisto River (tidal, salt water inlet from the Atlantic), walking along the beach, seeing dolphins, pelicans and seabirds and watching sunsets from our deck.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Janet, We really enjoyed staying in your condo at Pelican Watch. I could not believe how peacful and quiet it was, it was absolutly perfect. I have reccomended your place to my friends and I really hope we get a chance to stay there again, I did not want to leave. We were not sure where the best place to get kayaks was from so we ended up getting a fishing boat from the marina just outside Seabrook village which was really great.

Thanks again you are very lucky to have such a great place.

Our go to rental at Seabrook for the foreseeable future.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying at Janet and Ted's villa. It has everything you would need and the view is amazing. I love sitting out on the porch in the evening watching the stars and having an after dinner drink. The complex it is in, Pelican Watch is very family oriented and full of friendly folks. We met another friend this year and were thankful to see some folks we met last year. You just cannot beat Seabrook. Plenty of good places to eat, a very nice Pool/Beach club a short walk down the street and plenty of scenic, tree covered streets for morning runs.

We cannot imagine vacationing in any other villa at any other beach. We found our tradition.

Better than expected

  • 5 of 5

You know how sometimes things look better online than they do in person? Not so with this wonderful villa! My new wife and I spent a week at this property for our honeymoon and absolutely loved it. Everything was better than expected: the view from the back porch was amazing, it was a 2-minute walk from an uncrowded beach, the apartment was clean, everything promised was available in the room, and absolutely no hiccups getting into Seabrook Island or the front door. The hosts were very helpful all along the way and we had an absolutely wonderful week. We fell in love with the entire Seabrook Island and area and plan to return some day to enjoy a relaxing vacation. The entire Seabrook Island area is wonderful, with beautiful views, friendly people, and nearby restaurants and shopping centers. We highly recommend anyone wanting to get away tan on the beach to visit Seabrook Island, and this little townhouse is a perfect and affordable way to do just that!

Pure Serenity!

  • 5 of 5

Can't wait to go back. Condo is perfect for couple or small family. My husband, 3 year old and I enjoyed it very much. Beautiful view. You will see all kinds of wildlife right outside your door come sunset. Dolphins can be seen all throughout the day, also. Bed is comfortable as is the pull out couch. Deck is in a great position for both privacy and view. The only recommendation I can share is to add a fan on the deck and one in the house for the bedroom. Very short walk to the clubhouse. Clubhouse, pool areas and beaches are all fantastic. Isn't a ton to do on the island which was perfect for us. We spent our days riding bikes (rented from SI bikes, they deliver right to condo), spending time at the pool and then enjoying the sunset on the beach. Could not have asked for a better trip and better owners. We decided to extend our stay last minute and the owner was EXTREMELY accommodating and easy to work with.

Lovely, convenient, clean rental on beautiful island

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in this rental. The location is convenient to resort amenities, but tucked into the dunes for a natural, get-away-from-it-all feel. The view from the deck is gorgeous, and the unit is very close to the riverside beach access (ocean access is a little farther, but walkable). Charleston is an easy drive from Seabrook, and we actually spent more time in the city than we planned to because it was so convenient. The condo is well appointed, stylish, and very clean. Logistics were a breeze- the rental company was easy to work with, all keys, cards, etc. showed up on time and check-in/check-out was zero hassle. We would definitely return both to Seabrook Island and to this particular rental--and bring our bikes next time.

A fabulous pick for anyone who wants to vacation on Seabrook Island.

  • 5 of 5

The overall complex is lush and beautifully landscaped and features many grand and elegant houses. This specific unit is walking distance to the beach club and just a few hundred feet from a pristine, extremely quiet beach. The location is excellent for use of both beach and pools. The golf course club house is also walking distance.

We had no difficulty receiving our key and amenity cards by mail in advance and the security house was expecting us when we arrived at the gate. We were provided a parking pass that allowed us to come and go all week without difficulty.

The unit was exactly as depicted in the photos, well furnished in a soothing palette. The entire place was extremely clean and very well stocked with cleaning supplies, towels and other linens. The living room is extremely spacious and with a good size water-view deck. The kitchen is extremely well equipped. The bed was very comfortable and we were very glad to have use of the in-unit washer and dryer throughout the week.

The owner provides a couple of beach chairs and an umbrella, so you only need to bring towels. We used the pools at both the Beach House and the Lake House and enjoyed them.

We had a couple of tiny issues (phone wasn't working and we had a wi-fi glitch) and in both cases a call to the management office had them solved within minutes. Excellent service both times.

A few things you may wish to be aware of about the complex in advance:

- there are no sidewalks in the complex except right by the beach house; recreational walking is available on the beach.

- cyclists are welcome everywhere; but the bicycle rental places run out of bikes, so bring your own if you can.

- It's a 10 minute drive to the nearest store. The Harris Teeter in Freshfields has an exceptional range of products, including beach gear, and is less pricey than other nearby options.

- Check the tide schedule daily. The beach varies from 5 feet to 120 feet deep, depending on time of day.

One final comment about the community and NOT about the specific rental unit: We found the complete lack of racial diversity on the island to be quite unsettling and surprising considering the demographics of Charleston. We were not comfortable with this aspect of island living.
