Great location and closeness to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great stay. Plenty of space and room for everyone. Weather could have been warmer but no one has control over that. Of course home needs a little tlc as far as windows, shutters and paint on woodwork and baths. Still a fab time.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great place with all the amenities. We came with our 2 adult sons and grandchildren and had wonderful time. The house is quiet, well stocked -comfortable furniture, linens, all the detergents, soaps, shampoos. Beach is wide and few steps from the house. Bike path is just across the street. Planning on renting it next year.

Beach house with private pool - July 2017

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a great week at 2 Driftwood Lane. Short walk to beach - which was incredible. 100 yards wide at low tide - can ride bikes on it easily. Shaded, paved bike trails were great. The private pool was the perfect place to cool off, especially standing under the waterfall after a bike ride! Close to shopping, groceries, restaurants. AC worked great, wifi, screened-in back porch perfect for reading. Used propane grill almost every day. SleepNumber king bed was very comfortable. A week in paradise for sure!

A great very workable house!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very well kept and clean. Eight of our family had a bed.

Ping pong was great. Very close to the beach. The street is private.

We played tennis at Shipyard, only two blocks away and you can enter their gate. Just ask for the code.

Beach was outstanding. Net, a great place to stay!!!

Beautiful home & location.

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing vacation. It was my husband and I, my 2 adult children & their significant others and our dog. The location & layout of this home was perfect. Being so close to the beach made it convenient to walk back & forth without a hassle. The master suite was very spacious giving us ample amount of room for all our belongings. The kitchen was very nice with marble counter tops. The pool area was very relaxing. It was also so close to all the bike paths making it convenient to ride back and forth to Coligny. Having the screened in porch was great because we got hit with some rain so it was nice to still be outside. Our only recommendations would be a bigger BBQ and a dresser in the twin guest room. Overall, it was a perfect family rental.

Comfortable, beautiful home with a great layout!

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our week-long spring break stay in this home. The space layout was perfect for two couples and the two young people who were a part of our group. It was comfortable, and the skylights added beautiful, natural light all over the house.

The ping pong table provided entertainment for the whole group, as we happened to be there one week without tons of sunny weather, and the heated pool was perfect for our 'tween girls.

My only suggestion would be to wall off the air conditioner/pool heater area on the two sides toward the house - the constant noise of it running outside made it difficult to enjoy quiet conversations near the pool.

We also enjoyed grilling out one evening, and appreciated the gas grill that was provided.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and the review. We all love the location of the home from the beach and directly across from the bike path and so glad the young ladies enjoyed the heated pool. Regarding the location of the HVAC and pool heater they both are newer and per building code have to be located on this side of the home and at the rear of the home. Sorry the noise was a little loud but so glad you all enjoyed your stay! Hope to see you all back on the island soon! The Palmetto Sands Vacation Rental Team
