Beautiful home and gracious hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home and surroundings, and welcoming and gracious hosts. Our family of four (and two little dogs) could not have felt more at home! That was especially important as we were evacuating Charleston due to Hurricane Florence. We found a beautiful home and shared happy times even in a troubling time. Thank you Rose and Capt Ron for being so wonderful and thoughtful! I highly recommend the Creek Side House!

Outstanding in all respects

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Mason Creek home for four days to enjoy all the area has to offer, particularly the river and the gulf. The home is beautifully maintained and spotless. The living rooms and bedrooms are great - roomy and well decorated in a welcoming and comfortable way. There is more than enough parking, even for those arriving with two boats and trailers as we did. The house has everything you could possible need including nice bedding and plenty of towels. There is a large carport that is very handy for playing games and cooking out as well as cover if it rains. The kitchen is huge and has every utensil known to mankind and then some. There are two grills, one propane and the other charcoal. As described the water access is across the street at the owner's private dock so I might suggest if your are tying up boats there you bring a dolly or be prepared to carry your coolers and boat gear across the street. As many will choose this location for scalloping and other boating activities be aware that Mason Creek is shallow and unless you know the area do not attempt to navigate it without help - shallow draft vessel or not. The owners, Captain Ron and Rose greeted us upon our arrival and Ron was nice enough to ride with us and show us how to safely navigate the area while identifying hazards to navigation. Do not pass up the opportunity to learn from him unless you are positive you know the water. The owners could not have been more helpful and did everything possible to ensure the property was perfect when we arrived. Thank you Captain Ron and Rose for a great 4 days. Can't wait to come back!
