Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Dolphin Watch offers the perfect location. Located on the edge of the beach with a beautiful view of the ocean and pier, it is also just a hop, skip and jump from Center st and its restaurants and shops. There is a small grocery store, bicycle and golf cart rentals just one block away as well.

The walk up is to the third floor, so renters should be aware of that.

The furnishings are basic but comfortable and the bed was firm and comfortable. The space is just right for 2 people. I believe several of the units were empty so it t was relatively quiet while we were there which was a good thing because the walls are paper thin and we could here all the goings on next door. That could certainly be an issue if a loud or inconsiderate neighbor were there, or if someone is a light sleeper.

Stacy was also attentive to our questions and the reserved parking spot is KEY. ( just watch out for that POLE when you back up!! :)

Thanks Stacey.

Little things do make a difference!

  • 4 of 5

We really struggled with rating this condo and discussed it quite a bit. It really had everything we needed. We were fully aware of some of the disadvantages from reading other reviews: 3rd floor with no elevator, shared laundry room, thin walls, no beach towels, etc...and we were ok with all of that. Some of those things are beyond anyone's control. The reason that I gave it 4 stars is because there are no little "niceties", and while it does have everything we needed, it was all very "basic". There are no throw rugs (anywhere), the coffee maker was a basic coffee maker (no Keurig), the toaster was an inexpensive plastic one, there was no vacuum (there was a broom, and we swept the floor daily). There were 4 bath towels, but some had thin spots, the floor mat was frayed around the edges and there were no hand towels. As the owner stated, they try to keep the cost down, which we greatly appreciate. I am in no way criticizing, I just think that these are the "little extras" that make a place feel more "homey" and the stay exceptionally nice. These are the things, to me that would justify a rating of 5 stars. (Like the difference between a 4 star and 5 star's the "extras") On the plus side, the bed was extremely comfortable, the location was great and you can't beat the view. We walked to the shops and restaurants daily. The pier is great for watching dolphins swimming nearby. It's an easy drive in to Charleston. The location of this unit is one of the best in the building for privacy as it is on the top floor and on the end. If you're going to spend all day on the beach or in town, this is a great place to stay. Stacey was very responsive in her communications with us and we were overall pleased.

Dolphin Watch was very clean and comfortable. We were able to unwind and rest. Yes I would return

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are very busy with aging parents, children and grandchildren as well as our jobs. We needed a getaway to rest and relax.

Dolphin Watch was all we needed.

We stayed there four nights and only moved our car one day to drive into Charleston. Several good restaurants within walking distance.

We were very comfortable and able to relax and catch up on some rest and reading.

Want to thank Stacy for a great stay.

Nice accommodations.

Should have been noted on the reservation/

Regulations that Laundry Room was shared with init next door- no issues -but would have locked door on our side when we left the unit.

Very good experience.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Excellent ocean view and within walking distance of the Folly restaurants, shops, and pier. The perfect size condo for my husband, 22 month old, and myself. Bring your white noise machine- the walls are pretty thin, the neighbor's dog sounded like it was in the other room.
