"We stayed in this house for a weekend because friends were getting married at the Inn at Palmetto Bluff. This house is VERY close by to the Inn - practically right on the grounds which are just a short walk or bike ride away. The folks who run rentals for this house are also very friendly and easy to work with. We had three couples and two singles (8 total people) stay at the house and it was very comfortable. Whenever I can find a chance to return to Palmetto Bluff, I would DEFINITELY want to stay in this house again."

"If you are looking for that perfect, quiet, off-the-beaten path rental home, this is definitely the place for you! Having been to the HHI and Bluffton area before, we were seeking a nice, quiet location on this trip to just get away, relax, read, sleep in and not have a set agenda. You can't get much more quiet and relaxing than the Devil's Elbow Cottage on Bears Island! The only thing that "disturbed" our peace during our week were the many bird songs, squirrels and shore birds. The screened in porch was a perfect spot for morning coffee, an afternoon nap and evening cocktails as the sun was going down. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the view from the master bedroom is beyond description!
The cottage is really a well-appointed house next to the main house at the end of an island, separated only by a thin, dirt road that crosses the salt marsh. Its a bit off the beaten path, needing to enter via Colleton River Plantation, but its well worth it. The distance to 278 could only have been 4-5 miles or so as the crow flies, but we felt a world away. The best part about where the cottage is located is that you can be right in the heart of the HHI/Bluffton action in about 5-10 minutes!
The house was very clean, well decorated and had everything you would need to spend a nice long week in solitude. Peter and Leisa were wonderful to work with in getting the reservation locked in, gave us great driving directions, had a bunch of good recommendations for dining and activities and respected our privacy...but were very accommodating when needed. We felt truly fortunate to have the opportunity to experience this treasure! I can only hope that we will have the opportunity to return someday!"

"We spent a little over 2 months in this well appointed townhouse this past winter. Had pretty much everything we needed for a longer term stay. The owner was accessible and communication was good. Staying "off island" was initially a concern, but there is much to do and closer to the golf courses we frequented. We enjoyed not having quite as much "hustle and bustle". The townhouse is quiet, separate and has great views of the golf course out the back patio. Would recommend highly for shorter or extended stays. We have already committed to Feb and March 2016, and looking forward to returning."
