Great value for a large family
"We chose this property because of the large space available and the bunk beds in one of the bedrooms. The property itself is fascinating and has obviously been tastefully added on to. We brought two families down and packed the house to the gills with 4 adults and 8 children. Never did we feel like we were cramped or stepping on each other. The kids really enjoyed the movies and the novelty of using VHS tapes... "How do you start the movie over?" REWIND! The covered, paved carport was great for a small kiddie pool that we brought and the outdoor shower was great when some of the younger kids got into the mud during a trip to the sound. How can you be mad at a muddy kid when you have such a nice, heated outdoor shower? The kitchen was well furnished and the various porches were amazing to get away from the madness of the indoors.
Key points (positive):
Bike/running trails directly behind house. Rent a bike and use it every day. Awesome, easy access to beaches.
24hr Grocery store on island is great and prices are reasonable
Fresh water can be obtained from the city hall building less than 3 blocks away
Laundry room downstairs perfect to keep dirt and mud from inside
Visit Botany Bay for some truly outstanding nature sights! That beach is amazing!
Mattresses in master suites desperately need replacing. I have a bad back and it was utterly painful to sleep on. This was easily the worst part about our trip. Sleeping on a rock hard, squeaky mattress actually made me dread going to sleep at night. The kids' beds were just fine.
Tap water is really salty, even after filtering. Do NOT make coffee or tea with it. Get fresh water from city hall. Not really a big deal.
Bring dishwasher soap as it is fairly small compared to most newer units. Just takes a few extra cycles to wash everything when the house is full.
Owner: Consider adding some hammocks or swings under the home to encourage more outdoor activities. Otherwise, we truly enjoyed our stay and your property will be high on our list of recommendations, but PLEASE get those mattresses updated. After a day of chasing kids, I want to be snuggled in a nice bed while on vacation, not struggling for sleep. Also, you may want to have someone look at the power sockets in the living room and dining area. Some of the plugs fall right out as they are worn out. Possible fire hazard, but really easy to fix. Would definitely recommend, overall!"

"Considering that this was our 4th time at High Seas I think the fact that we keep going back just about tells you all you need to know! I will go ahead a say once again, "It doesn't get any better than High Seas"! The owners are remarkable and they do everything possible to make our stay there every year a comfortable, pleasurable and happy time! The house is always immaculate, it is equipped with EVERYTHING you could possibly need right down to the tiniest of details! The views are breathtaking, the sound of the ocean is so relaxing and sunrise in the mornings is absolutely beautiful! When we are at High Seas we feel like we are home......it doesn't get any better than that! We will never tire of the good times we have at High Seas or the beauty of Edisto Beach and will return every year!"

"From the time we arrived at the town house we knew we had booked at the right place. The decor was perfect. The furnishings are nice and everything was very clean. The pictures do not do this unit justice. It is very spacious and everyone has room to get away for a bit if needed. We enjoyed the 3 balconies and even saw deer come right up behind the house a couple of mornings. We drove over to the beach and if you go to access 35 there are very little people at the beach and it is a very natural part of the island. We had a fantastic week and I'm sure you will too!"

"1 bedroom directly on the ocean! This property is a very small apartment underneath the main house. There is no ocean view, but the owner invites you to sit on the upstairs deck where the view is spectacular. The owner is very sweet and receptive to all questions. Again, the apartment is very small, but who goes to the beach to stay inside. The kitchen is completely equipped,but no dishwasher. Owner has washer and dryer available. Owner left two very nice beach chairs for our use. Highly recommend for a couple or a single traveler.
Edisto is filled with restaurants, beach shops. Botany Bay is beautiful. There is a fresh fish market, fresh vegetable markets, a Bi-Low close by. No high rises, water parks, etc. I will definitely come back to this property, maybe try in the spring when not so unmercifully hot!"
