Great house

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time on our visit to Edisto Island. The house was nice & clean and met our needs with 6 people.

We enjoyed being able to sit out on the front porch in the evening as well. If give the opportunity we would be interested in staying again.

Family Vacation Spot!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Firefly Cottage. It became a "thing" to go out in the yard every afternoon to pick up golf balls. There were 6 of us and plenty of room. The driveway was a great size for our three vehicles. Cathi, the property manager, was great help when we needed advice about medical care. Thanks again to her. And she was easy to get in touch with. The best part definitely was that we could have our dog with us. She had a great time.

A few negatives:

- dishwasher way too small and dishes didn't seem clean with spots

- dining room table needs a thorough deep clean with all its nooks & cranies

- the Wyndham swimming pool needs to be cleaned more often. We won't buy a pass next time, we found it to be a waste of $200
