Perfect In Every Way

  • 5 of 5

I realize writing an honest review for this property may only make it more difficult for us to rent it again, but the Tinsleys have set the standard for vacation hosts. This Cottage is charming in absolutely every way - decorated and furnished beautifully, nestled happily among the birds and trees, and welcoming from start to finish. A particular strength is how well it is stocked - from beach bikes (4) and coolers, to ample house keys and a generously stocked kitchen (utensils and cookware, and household needs like paper towels, garbage bags, etc.) I am a detail person, and was so impressed with the attention to detail in this home. I love the layout of this cottage and this is the nicest of its design we have rented on Kiawah. I hope to return again soon!

Great, relaxing and convenient setting

  • 5 of 5

We had three issues with this property and two of them were out of the owner's control.

First, mid-March is not ideal beach weather even though our Iowa boys made a point of getting into the water on a daily basis. It was fun to watch them play in the waves as others walked by wearing winter coats.

Second, the pool was not open. Again, not a decision the homeowners make. But, our kids were bummed nonetheless.

Third, there was an issue with the bikes that was quickly fixed. The bikes are a great bonus and were used every day.

The home, décor and location are great. You are very close to everything and the neighbors in the area are very friendly (one even let our four boys use their kayaks for a day!).

Going to Charleston is a must and an easy, short drive. That is a beautiful city.

Finally, not enough can be written about the Ice Cream Boat at Bohicket Marina. The owner is amazing and was super helpful -- multiple times making calls for us to get tourist information. We went there three times and should have gone more.

All in all this is a beautiful part of the country and the home is nestled in trees that gives a very private feel, like you're deep in the woods. The home was clean and the perfect size for a family of 6.

Well stocked villa in a peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

Although the weather wasn't completely in our favor (mid-March), we enjoyed our stay in this well equipped home. We cooked most meals and found everything we needed in terms of quality pots, pans and utensils. The home is located in a quiet neighborhood with a quick, peaceful walk to the beach and pool (although too cold to enjoy the week we were visiting). We also enjoyed the use of the bikes and rode almost daily (to the beach and on the wonderful surrounding bike paths). They layout of the home was ideal for our party of four and all furnishing were very nice. I think the owners have thought of everything.

Beautiful, comfortable, and clean!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property and its surroundings so much! The house is completely renovated and up to date, and its location in the woods (just a couple of blocks from the beach) is so tucked away and cozy--we felt like we were in a fancy treehouse! It was clean and comfortable, and we want to return some day. The beach cruisers were fabulous--we had a nice bike ride on Sunday following our marathon on Saturday.

college girlfriend weekend reunion--class of "78

  • 5 of 5

We all loved this house--living room was big and airy and we had plenty of room to relax and talk and catch up in the evenings after exploring Charleston during the day (about 45 minute drive back and forth). Kitchen very functional and we liked the small table/4 chairs for breakfast. The larger dining table suited us well for dinners when we wanted to be a little more "formal".

Decorations were tasteful and beautiful fabrics accentuated every room. Very quiet location, very well stocked with paper products and soap, which was a pleasant surprise.

We cooked several meals in the kitchen and found everything we needed.

At 60, some of us had not been on a bicycle in a long time, but we all took off on the bikes available with the house and enjoyed the trails, bird-watching and had a lot of laughs as we wobbled around! The house is about a 10 minute walk to the beach and a park which would be perfect for families with smaller children. House has a outdoor shower too making it great for cleaning off after day in the sand and salt.

The owner, Mr. Tinsley, was so helpful and responsive and answered many of our questions by e-mail before we arrived, including giving us some suggestions for great places to eat and watch the sunsets. And he even texted us the day we checked in to make sure we had gotten into the house and settled! Very thoughtful.

We had a fabulous weekend.
