Recent South Carolina property reviews

  • A little bit of Paradise

    "My husband and I just returned from a 10 day trip to this beautiful property. It was all we hoped for and more. The townhome was immaculate and the location was perfect. It was a short drive to golf, restaurants and other ammenities, but also provided a quiet, peaceful and private setting. We found the owners extremely easy to work with and everything was as promised when we arrived. We will definately bookmark this as a place we will return."

  • Amazing Views!!

    "First of all, the owners of this condo were AWESOME!! Kristy was so accommodating to our family! We traveled from Philadelphia to North Myrtle and she allowed us access to condo at Noon instead of 3pm which is normal check-in time!! Exhausted after the long drive it was great to not have to deal with the regular "check in" crowds at 3pm! As I was coming off the beach there were lines of people with full Dollies waiting to get on the elevators to get to there rooms! We were already in, unpacked and on the beach! This was so nice!! The condo was very nice and clean. We had PLENTY of room for all 10 of us! We loved the balcony over the ocean!! Having my coffee every morning to this view was incredible! Every night there were fireworks and we got a "birds eye view"!! The beaches are so nice and clean and Kristy even gave us a complimentary beach umbrella and 2 chairs! The closet where we kept our beach chairs etc..., was full of boogie boards, chairs, a kite, ladder gold and buckets all for your use! I didn't have any problem with having to park my car in garage across the street, that was fine!! We walked to Mini golf a few blocks up, there are two beach shops within walking distance and an ice cream joint called Mr. G's around the corner we frequented!!! Molly Darcy's is next door. We visited Broadway by the beach which was about a 20 minute drive. Kids loved it but it was pricey!!! We went to Greg Normans Australian Grill which was AMAZING!!! Ask to sit out by the waterway!!! The food was amazing! All 10 of us had great food! That's at Barefoot Landing. We also had to appease my son and take him to Dick's Last Resort which was funny and a casual "bar food" place! My kids got a HUGE kick out of this place and the employee's were a lot of fun! However, don't get suckered into the GIANT margarita! It was $20.00!! Ouch! There is a little amusement park a mile and a half down the beach called Ocean Drive Amusement Park. This is geared for young kids, maybe 8 and younger. During the day they put out a gigantic waterslide on the beach in front of the O.D. Amusement center and it's $20.00 to slide all day and something like $5.00 for 3 runs. The water was warm and the waves were GREAT! We had a blast! The only few complaints would be: The light in the outside entrance way shines in bedrooms and it can be loud in hall. (bring a fan to drown out noise!!) this is not condo, nothing to do with Kristy! I highly recommend! I hope to be back!!!"

  • Wonderful Location - Cozy Bungalow

    "My husband and I recently stayed at Lamm's End Bungalow. What a great location - one block from the beach and near the center of town. The Bungalow had everything we needed from kitchen supplies to towels to wireless internet! We picked a tough weather week to visit but still enjoyed our stay as the Bungalow is very cozy! Loved having the dog crate available as the home is dog friendly. Everything was nicely done inside and out. On one of our nice days, my husband got to enjoy the outside deck area. The proximity to Charleston is great also - we visited many times so it was nice to have just a short drive to get there but still be near the beach. Would definitely recommend a visit here - Beth has everything organized for your stay to make it that much easier."

    "Me and my girlfriends rented this house for the Beaufort Water Festival weekend. The house was very clean and spacious. The views are absolutely amazing with floor to ceiling sliding glass doors that open all the way up so you can also enjoy the breeze coming in from the water. We swam off the dock and watched as dolphins swim by all day. The kitchen was fully equipped and there was a grill on the property as well that came in handy. This by far is one of the best vacation homes I have yet to rent. We definitely enjoyed our stay and we will be back!!"

South Carolina Travel Tips

South Carolina provides the perfect mix of coastal charm and Southern living. Here are some tips on what to see and do in each of the four major tourist areas of South Carolina:


Columbia is the capital of South Carolina and its largest city. It’s located in the very center of the state near a large collection of lakes collectively named Lake Murray. Here are some of the must-sees on your trip to Columbia:

- Visit Congaree National Park, which is just a short drive southeast of the city. It’s the largest remaining area of old-growth hardwood forest in the United States. Go hiking on Weston Lake Loop or Bluff trails or follow the 20-mile Cedar Creek canoeing trail as you traverse this swampy, biodiverse area.

- Visit Riverbanks Zoo and Botanical Gardens, located near Interstate 126 and the Lower Saluda River. The zoo is easy to navigate and the lush gardens are at their most beautiful at dusk.

- Take the kids to EdVenture, an incredibly fun children’s museum that boasts a 40-foot, 17.5-ton mascot named Eddie, a giant 10-year old boy who adults and children can climb in and through, exploring his stomach, brain and heart in the process. This is just a taste of the awesome, child-friendly experience provided at EdVenture. It’s a kid’s paradise!

- Everyone will enjoy the Columbia Museum of Art. Kids are given Art Explorer backpacks to keep them occupied and adults will enjoy the impressive traveling exhibits.


Charleston is South Carolina’s second largest city and was founded in 1670 to honor King Charles II of England. Here are some of this city’s highlights:

- Hop on the ferry from 340 Concord Street at Liberty Square for a quick ride to Fort Sumter National Monument, which is perched on an island in the Charleston Bay. The first shots of the Civil War were fired by Confederate forces here on April 12, 1861.

- Take a scenic walk in Battery Park and White Point Garden for views of the harbor and rows of coastside mansions.

- Walk or bike across the Cooper River via the architectural gem that is the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge.

- Kids will love a visit to the South Carolina Aquarium on Charleston Harbor or the Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry, which provides several interactive art exhibits for tiny hands.

- Check out the pretty Isle of Palms for sandy white beaches and a peaceful atmosphere.

- Go shopping on King Street, where you’ll find high-end boutiques like Hampden Clothing and Luna, bookstores, art galleries and plenty of excellent restaurants like Pane e Vino and Rue de Jean. Don’t miss out on elegant chocolate creations at nearby Christophe Artisan Chocolatier-Patissier on nearby Society Street.

- Check out Rainbow Row, a collection of 13 pretty pastel-colored homes on East Bay Street that have been here since the 1700s.

Northern Coast

The most prominent city on South Carolina’s northern coast is family-friendly Myrtle Beach. There is plenty for both kids and parents here:

- Catch a minor league baseball game at the Myrtle Beach Pelicans’ baseball park off of Robert M. Grissom Parkway.

- Go shopping at Broadway at the Beach, which also hosts an awesome carousel, miniature golf park and performances by music legend impersonators at Legends in Concert. Grab something to eat at the pyramid-shaped Hard Rock Cafe or chill out at the KISS Coffeehouse (yes, the band).

- The 1.2 mile-long Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is the place to be. After catching some sun on the beautiful beach, people-watch on the boardwalk, eat fried fair food and take a ride on the innovative Skywheel LLC, a 187-foot tall ferris wheel with 42 glass-enclosed gondolas that are also temperature controlled.

- Cool down at Myrtle Waves waterpark or take stand up paddleboard lessons from Carolina Paddle Company.

- Head south to the Brookgreen Gardens and Huntington Beach State Park in Murrell’s Inlet to immerse yourself in nature.

Southern Coast

Hilton Head Island is the most popular destination on South Carolina’s southern coast. Here are the best things to see in this pristine vacation area:

- Go golfing at Palmetto Dunes or Harbour Town Golf Links at Sea Pines. Each of these offers impressive Atlantic views.

- Rent kayaks, learn how to sail or relax on a dolphin boat tour launched from Shelter Cove Marina.

- Get your fill of nature at the boardwalks over marshy swamps at 400-acre nature preserve Sea Pines Forest. Take an eco tour from The H2O Nature Center, watch dolphins participate in strand feeding, where they actually lie on their sides to grab fish they’ve herded into the low tides, and take a long bike ride through wooded trails.
