Good place, good price
"My family and I had a great week at Makin' Waves. The house is in a quiet location with friendly neighbors. The location on the lake is perfect, right in the middle, so you have easy access to the South Carolina and Georgia sides of the lake. We rented the pontoon boat along with the home which was a great idea, saved us a lot of money. It was sitting there, full of gas and ready to go. We were on the water within 20 minutes of arrival.
The place is little dated but everything works, the stove and fridge are quite new and there are lots of bowls, cups, pots, pans and silverware. It has an extra ice maker in a closet outside which we used everyday. There were even a bunch of noodles and fishing powls there too The air conditioner really puts out some cold air and we needed it because it was a hot week. There's a grill outside on the deck as well.
The best thing is probably the owners. Very personable and timely. They are responsive to emails and phone calls and left easy to follow directions for everything. We had a small hiccup with the pontoon boat one day (self induced) and they were ON IT and we didn't have another problem. Good pontoon boat, has a good engine that pulls well and can get up on plane. Not a speed demon but fast enough for the lake, a knee board and tubing.
Good fishing right at the dock as well as few great spots nearby. One of the biggest marinas on the lake is about a ten or so minute boat ride away and it has gas 24/7 but the owners also have big gas cans there that you can use to get less expensive gas up the street.
Overall, we had a great time and will likely come again. A+"

"A BIG Thank You to the owners for sharing their house at a reasonable rate. Had a great time. Lots of space. Much appreciated ping pong in garage and pool table in basement gave the kids something to do/interact instead of being on the internet the whole time. Like the character of the older home. upstairs loft/sleeping area was neat. Great deep water semi-protected area on main part of Lake Keowee for the boat and kids to swim. Gas grill and firepit were also used and appreciated."
