Would Definately Come Back!
"A great place to use as a home base for a holiday at the beach. Lovely home environment, that met all our needs. We especially loved the screen in porch. A great place to enjoy the early evening hours and watch the herons (or are they egrets?) come in and nest in the trees behind the property.
Debbie was great and very responsive to communication before and during our time at the property.
We would definately come back!"

"We are water people and this house was great for us. It is very comfortable and feels like home. The outside kitchen allows you to do such things as low country boil and keep the mess out of the house. We were very satisfied."

"This was our first rental of this property. The cottage was lovely & well provisioned. It was literally less than 30 steps from the water's edge. When not on the beach, we were on the screened and covered back porch in the rocking chairs. The outdoor shower with hot and cold water was an additional convenience. We used the charcoal grill twice, and it was in excellent condition. We met Grace, the owner, when we went down to preview the unit. She's lovely!"

"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!"
