Why The Owner chose South Carolina

We have enjoyed this area for the last 40 years. You can fish right off the dock or launch your boat from our private ramp and fish one of the many secluded undeveloped coves nearby .

What makes this house unique

The sheltered creeks and coves can be enjoyed regardless of the weather. It's a short run by boat into the main lake with full acess to the entire Santee Cooper lake system.

Quite location & good size property for the 12 of us.

  • 5 of 5

The property was in a good clean condition when we arrived & had all we needed for our stay. We were visiting from the UK & were slightly concerned about alligators in the lake as we all wanted to jump in to cool off. The neighbours quickly put our minds at rest & we made good use of the dock. We hired a boat for a couple of days & had a good look around. I can see that the property is in an ideal spot & well equipped for fishing but we didn't take advantage of that. We were having a 50th birthday get together which we'd planned around the solar eclipse & we got the perfect view from the dock. A real experience to remember. A couple of us enjoyed a round of golf at Wyboo GC in Manning which was very reasonably priced. We all had a good night at Reds just up the road & no one was disappointed with their steaks.

My only criticism would be the lack of a door to the en suite restroom which seemed a bit odd but it didn't spoil our stay.

Great house in a great location

  • 4 of 5

This is a great house in a great location on Lake Marion! We had plenty of room for us and our guests and everyone was very comfortable. The "harbor" off the dock is shallow (3-4 feet) but adequate and holds fish. Love that this house has a boat ramp, sandy beach, and a dock all at the back door. Also love the huge master bedroom and the fact that it is on a culdesac with limited traffic. We will definitely be renting again!

The reason for not going to 5 stars are a few items that I would love to see addressed before our next visit:

1) Replace the wood on the dock. We had several get splinters in their feet from the old wood.

2) Add a few more cleats to the dock for securing boat and secure the existing cleats a bit more, one of them spins.

3) Replace the DVD/VCR player with a modern blu-Ray player. The existing one is connected with RCA plugs and quality is poor. (DirecTV was great though!)

4) Screens on the porch would be nice for lunch without skeeters and melting heat.

A special place

  • 5 of 5

Thirteen of us...ages 3 to 63...met for a week's get-away at this Wyboo/Potatoe Creek location. We took lots of food with us, and that was a great thing since stores are about 20-25 minutes away. The owners have two very nice refrigerators, so it made for plenty of space to store what we brought. We rented a pontoon boat from J & J and like the Lowe's, they were just great and very responsive. We were there just after July 4th, and felt like we almost had the lake to ourselves. We were visited in the mornings by geese up in the yard. Out on the boat, we got up into some back waters where we saw lots of Osprey, a bald eagle, and alligators. The house was as promised and perfect for our crew that included children. It is a bit rustic and not so "Southern Living Perfect" that we worried terribly about every move the kids made which meant we could relax. The eating and cooking area worked out perfectly for us, and we used the same tables at night for games. The porch is warm this time of year, but it was still a great place for coming and going to the inside when we had gear or kids had been playing on the sandy beach. We also had morning coffee out there. We also enjoyed one night at the closest restaurant and the food was terrific. All in all, it was one of the best times we have ever had.

Gorgeous place to relax

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was wonderful. The house had everything we needed, fully equipped kitchen, comfy beds, plenty of space. My son loved the sandy beach and fishing off the dock. J&J Marina is only 20 minutes away and we rented a pontoon boat that we parked on the dock for 4 days. Exploring the wildlife refuge was amazing. The atmosphere was quite relaxing just the stress free environment we needed for spring break!

Great spot for a large group

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place!! More than enough space for our group of seven golfers. All the amenities you could ask for. Great location on the lake. Owner was quick to respond during booking process and very helpful. We would have absolutely no reservations in returning to this place in the future and would highly recommend.
