  • A Spring Break to Remember

    "We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and we packed enough fun and new experiences in that afternoon to justify the entire trip from New York. This place is awe inspiring, and we loved walking around the home soaking in all the originality and details it had to offer. We visited the Sutcliffe Farm right around the corner and Hunter (Sutcliffe, I presume) was nice enough to bring us through the entire farm telling us about the animals and his family. This was fun for the entire family. The peacock, with his run of the farm, seemed to be everyone’s favorite. Being from upstate New York, setting crab traps was nothing we had ever done before, but we baited them with chicken drumsticks and caught our first crab. The kids loved setting traps and checking them frequently to see the fruits of their labor. We caught stone crabs, blue crabs, hermit crabs, whelks, and even the occasional jelly fish that got caught in the netting. We were surprised that they would glow green in the evenings. We would all explore the sands at low tide to see what the high tide left us, and the bounty was always changing: old bottles encrusted with barnacles, large whelk shells, horseshoe crab skeletons, interesting looking drift wood, and loads of new sea creatures would surface daily. We made great use of the kayaks, and we had very close encounters with the dolphins with one nearly jumping across the front of the kayak! The kids were never bored, and having 7 kids in the house, ranging from 5 months to 15 yrs., that is saying a lot. We could have stayed at the house all week and not needed anything more, but on the days that the weather didn’t cooperate, we ventured to nearby islands and towns. We visited Hunting Island State Park and walked the trails and beach. We climbed the lighthouse ($2 additional charge, but we felt it was worth it) and took pictures from the top. Interestingly, the road towards Lands End was rich with historical sites: church ruins, Penn School (the first school established for freed slaves), and at the end of the road sits Fort Fremont, which is now a park. The park has a beach access to a public beach great for exploring, or soaking in the sun. We had a terrific time, and one that will never be forgotten. I’ve never been more relaxed than I was slowly rocking in the hammock down on the dock listening to all the birds and feeling the cool breeze off the water. Thank you for allowing us to share in your little slice of Heaven!"

  • Amazing. Peaceful and Beautiful

    "We stayed here for my brother's marine graduation. We had 7 people staying here, and there was still a bedroom we didn't even use. The house itself is beautiful and spacious, but it's the front yard and dock that make it stellar. The sunsets every night were simply breathtaking. My family and I agreed, we have never felt so relaxed on a trip before. EVER! We had tons of fun. We even caught a baby shark off the dock with some fishing line, a hook, and some leftover Chinese food! We also caught a few crabs, and enjoyed watching the rays do back flips right under the dock. This place is amazing and we will for sure be back!"

  • Lovely House

    "The pictures of the place are spot on. We loved the roomy, beautifully decorated interior, especially the sitting area for mom and dad to read, and a separate family room for teens to watch television in the evenings. Lots of books and movies for rainy days. All 3 bedrooms are upstairs, but wasn't a problem for us because we went downstairs in early mornings while our teen slept. The appliances are up-to-date including the roomy washer and dryer. We cooked in for a few meals and found everything in working order. Everything is provided. (Knives need sharpening, however!) The walk to the water was delightful and we discovered many beautiful shells. The weather was not terribly cooperative, but loved the short drives north to Charleston, and south to Savannah. We also were able to rent a sailboat charter for an afternoon. So many things to do."

  • Cozy Cottage

    "The Cozy Cottage offers a true lived in experience for the Low Country of South Carolina given its ideal, rural location in the salt marshes. This was our first visit to SC and we appreciated JoAnn's recommendations and gracious hospitality. The cottage proved to be a wonderful, comfortable getaway for a couple looking to escape from a very, cold February in Canada. Excellent bird and wildlife viewing for the nature lover. Our Australian Shepherd appreciated the very, large fenced area that made her feel like home where she is accustomed to "free ranging". JoAnn's five dogs quickly became her best friends! Lady's Island and Beaufort has many interesting shops and a beautiful waterfront.We enjoyed an excellent evening meal at the nearby Foolish Frog. The nearby state park was a highlight with miles of naturalized beach in a tropical setting. Highly recommended!"
