Excellent Accomdations with gas fireplace!!

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was very comfortable and warm . It just so happened a record cold front came through during our recent stay. The gas fireplace provided a comfortable setting at nights and was very relaxing. Will definitely stay here again on future visits!!

Great family time together in a relaxed area.

We truly enjoyed the house, walking around the area, the Beach. It was comfortable, clean and quiet. Would definitely come back.

Very Fun time

  • 5 of 5

We had never rented this far from the beach and were a bit apprehensive about the location. But we had an outstanding trip and wouldn't hesitate to rent this unit again. It is just a three-minute walk to the beach, and the owner had provided a beach cart and several chairs. Two of the three porch areas are screened in and the extra living space where a fourth bedroom had been converted into more living space made the place seem extra big. The owner was very responsive to every question we had and even brought us home-grown tomatoes from their garden.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your week at Little EastGlow. Yes, the house is but just a brief walk to the beach, and equally (more?) important, once you reach the beach, you are only a brief walk to Bird Island, an untainted sanctuary of water, sand, and wildlife. Though sleeping quarters are comforting, featuring two queen-size beds and two twin-size beds, there is a spacious indoor living area, and three porch (two screened) living areas, plus seating enough for 12-14 diners, and even more if you decide to use the picnic table below. Yes! We hope you soon return to Little EastGlow and once more enjoy one of the loveliest beaches in the world - Sunset Beach!

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

Sometimes you need to completely disconnect for a week and go to the beach. If you're looking for a quaint beach village not too far out of the way - Sunset Beach is where you need to go. And this house accommodated all of our needs. With three young kids, we easily managed for a whole week without getting too cramped. By the end of the week we were refreshed and were ready to return to our lives revitalized.

Owner's Response: We could not agree more with your descriptions of Sunset Beach. Few destinations can boast the "land's end" feel of Sunset Beach with the convenience of nearby restaurants, museums, planetarium, shopping, golfing, and the list goes on and on. From Little EastGlow, you reach the beach via 36th Street boardwalk; and once done, you are a mere 1000ft from the beginning of a 2-mile stretch of unfettered beach, a sanctuary for birds and other wildlife. A 1000ft in the other direction brings you to the pier with its vintage fishing-village ambiance, including bicycle rentals, surf shops, and ice cream. Most lovely are the endless sunsets viewable from nearly every island location, bringing peace to the close of day. Sunset Beach. Everyone needs to try it!

Cute but lacking in some amenities

  • 3 of 5

First of all, the good news. The house is beautifully decorated, as advertised. It is also fastidiously clean. It is an easy 200-yard walk to the beach. There were seven of us, three adults and four school-age children and we certainly had sufficient living space. It also had a nice outdoor shower, perfecting for washing sand off bodies and beach toys after a day at the beach. The screened-in porches are a nice feature and were a lovely place to relax with a good book and a glass of wine.

HOWEVER, the house is lacking some amenities that I have come to expect from a rental. First of all, if this is the first time you are staying at Sunset Beach, take note that bath towels and bed sheets are not usually included in the base rental price. VRBO does not present this information in a very clear way. After our first afternoon at the beach, we were dismayed to learn that we had no bath towels or sheets on the beds. It is an additional charge if you want those to be provided and the only way to see that on VRBO is to hover over the words "Linens provided" and "towels provided" in the list of amenities. I have NEVER encountered this before after being a loyal VRBO user for over five years. In a gesture of goodwill, the property owner waived our linens fee, but make sure this is sorted out before you arrive on site. Second, there was a washing machine on the property, but after two loads, we realized the barrel was leaking and not actually holding any water. I contacted the property manager and she told me she has known for some time that "there is something going on with the washer." Again, I feel this is false advertising. The broken washer should have been fixed before our arrival. Also, we were promised a beach umbrella and beach chairs for our use. The two beach umbrellas were in decrepit condition and not fit for the beach. The chairs were just okay. We ended up renting our own equipment for our stay but it was inconvenient to have to set this up after our arrival. The kitchen was also poorly stocked. There were a total of four dinner plates and four salad plates. Those went fast among seven people as you can imagine. There were no food wraps such as saran wrap or tin foil, no scissors and no tupperware containers of any kind. Also, there was no large stockpot, which made the preparation of pasta for our crowd a little difficult. Overall, cute decor does not make up for a lack of amenities that are essential when traveling with kids at the beach.

Owner's Response: We regret you were disappointed in our home. We make every effort to be fair and transparent--even overly accommodating--to our clients. For instance, we granted your request and gave you early access to the home at no additional charge. As for linens and rental fee, you write: “VRBO does not present this information in a very clear way.” This may be true; and if so, then this is a website issue and beyond our control. Still, our house manager responded with urgency to your complaint about linens. She reported to me that she was on-site to give you access to linens within two hours of your phone-in complaint, and well before bedtime. The same evening, we responded within two hours to your email complaint, waiving the $125 linen rental fee. Indeed, we went “over and beyond” to accommodate (a) website inadequacies, and (b) your failure to vet the home properly. We also offered to have the house manager bring new chairs to you for use on the beach, but you responded, writing: “We have been able to rent an umbrella and chairs so there is no need for (manager’s name) to come out again with new chairs.” The washing machine was purchased May 2017; as soon as we learned there was a problem, we contacted the appliance repair person. Unfortunately, and during high season, service people are busy and can only attend one repair at a time. The repair was an easy-fix, and the machine is now perfectly operational. We are a wee confused about your remarks concerning kitchen amenities. Our recent inventory does not match your numbers or descriptions. Finally, whereas we supply start-up consumables, including, coffee and filters, paper towels and dinner napkins, dish and dishwasher detergent, cook-top cleanser, trash bags, spray cleanser, facial and bathroom tissue, hand soap, shower gel, laundry detergent and bleach, dish and hand towels; and whereas we always leave a “Welcome to Little EastGlow” gift; you are correct. We do not supply tinfoil, plastic wrap or containers. Final note and according to VRBO metrics, Little EastGlow out performs: 99% of the market in search results; 65% of the market in number of times travelers view listing; 10% of the market in number of cancellations; 100% of the market in response rate to clients; and 94% of the market in bookings. Most notable, in the 3.5 years Little EastGlow has been available for rent, we have received 43 reviews, including: one 3-star rating; three 4-star ratings; and 39 5-star ratings; with an overall 4.9/5 rating.

Sunset Beach is a lovely, quiet Eco-friendly environment perfect for families, couples, and singles. Contiguous to Bird Island, a protected wildlife sanctuary, visitors are only a short walk from world-class beaches and dunes, teeming with wildlife. Beaches and streets are perfect for family biking and peaceful walks. Sunset Beach is the place 'to get away from it all,' yet only a few minutes to museums, golfing, fine and low-country dining, entertainment, shopping, historical sites and more.
