Family get-together

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my family, lots of space for spreading out. Well equiped kitchen, screened decks plus open deck on roof, path to the beach, gorgeous sunrise and full moon-rise. Emily handled all of the arrangements very efficiently and graciously responded to a special request. My family wants to come back every year to this same house --- they loved it!

Already looking to book again

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time on Dewees and it was even better than before. The house is perfect for a large group, with lots of bathrooms and screened in porches. We loved the top deck for star- gazing as well. Emily and the rest of her management team were excellent as always. Every email was quickly responded to and Sarah on the island was there to promptly fix an issue with a golf cart and again, quickly answer any small questions we had. This is a great place if you want to get away and just enjoy the beach. Driving the golf carts around looking for animals was a favorite activity for the kids as well as the touch pool at the small nature center.

Quiet, secluded, peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Superb house on an amazing island. The house location is ideal, on the beach with a great view of tidal marsh and ocean. The entire island is accessible by the 3 golf carts, which allow a large group to go in different directions.

We enjoyed canoeing and fishing the impoundment, sunsets on Lone Cedar Dock, shelling on the beach, and relaxing in the large house.

We also enjoyed the Dewees Ferry to and from IOP and spent a wonderful day in Charleston.

We will return as soon as possible!

Ultra Private & Wonderful Beach House on Dewees Island

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in this classic beach house. It was tuck away and very private. The top deck overlooks the Atlantic and serene beach, and the home had every thing we needed. Great property and great management company too. Would recommend!

Great property for large group or family

  • 4 of 5

My group, consisting of three families, a total of 14 people, stayed for a week in this lovely house by the beach. The house was in excellent condition while we were there, very clean and in good repair. The beach views were wonderful and the property provided easy access to the beach side of the island. Of the three golf carts which were included with the rental, two worked very well, a third one was marginal but worked most of the time. The linens provided for the bedrooms were a bit worn and cheap but were adequate. The best feature of this property was the abundance of space (many bedrooms, large living areas, decks, loft) - for a large group you can't beat it on Dewees. We had an awesome time cooking and dining together, playing and exploring together, but had our own personal spaces to create separation when needed. Note that there are a LOT of stairs and would be challenging for people with disabilities (there is an elevator but it was tricky to operate). We would recommend this property without reservation - in fact, we are already booked to stay in the same house next year!

great place with a few isues

  • 4 of 5

staying in the home right now as I write this.....nice home, but needs some repairs......we did find the fridge to be filled with a strong fish smell and what appeared to be fish residue in the bottom of the freezer. The AC unit for the main living area was out of Freon which was repaired two days after we arrived. The pull out bed in the mother in law unit was, and has been, well beyond repair. My wife and baby had to take the mattress off and sleep in the floor. The satelite tv did not provide local channels that are tied to major networks such as abc, cbs and nbc. So there were several programs that we had planned to watch that we could not. BUT once we called the rental company they came out within a day and worked to get as much fixed as possible without direct intervention from the owner. Would I come back and stay here? YES. Great place, just needs a little more attention.
