Fantastic house and setting

  • 4 of 5

The photos of this house did not do it justice. This house is fabulous. We had everything available to us that we needed...a very comfortable and relaxing atmosphere to spend time in. We hope to return when the dock is rebuilt.

Welcoming, comfortable, felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

I will be completely honest, I was a little skeptical about renting a house sight unseen in a place I knew nothing about. I have rented/booked via the internet before and you can't always trust the pictures you see. In this particular case, I feel the pictures don't do the house justice! My family and I were completely at home there. The house has everything you could possibly need during your stay.

We did have one minor glitch when we first arrived but that was taken care of immediately by Chris. One week later we had the same issue, but once again it was quickly rectified.

This was a family vacation which included my parents who are in their 80's. The layout of the house made it easy for my folks to get around. Everything is on one floor other than the steps into the house which were not a problem for them.

We all slept incredibly well which usually never happens in a strange place. Everyone commented on how comfortable their beds were!

If you get bored, which won't happen, there are movies, books and games for all ages. We spent most of our time in the back yard on the porch enjoying the shade or on the dock. The view is magnificent. Sunrises and sunsets were amazing. We even got to enjoy a full moon on our stay. I spent much of my time photographing nature which is abundant there. I came back home with a huge box full of driftwood and shells from walking the shoreline during low tide.

I highly recommend this home for an enjoyable retreat. I do hope to come back soon.

Quiet, peaceful and relaxing get away !

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet place to decompress from work, then this is the place. No noise except the sounds from the sea, wind, and the dolphins. You can sit on the dock at night and see more stars above the ocean horizon then you can imagine, so if you have a telescope, you should bring it. If you love catching and eating shellfish, this is the place. There are 3 crab traps that were always producing legal size blue crabs. I would recommend checking them during the day every 3 or 4 hours. I brought my cast net and also caught plenty of bait and large size eating shrimp every day. Also landed 3 small sharks (2 1/2- 3 feet ) using bait fish caught from at the end of the dock. My cast netting results for this week found the most shrimp between shore and the middle of the dock during high tides, and bait fish off the end of the dock during high tide. Sea trout was caught using shrimp on a float about 2 feet down right off the covered dock, and live bait fish fished on the bottom produced the shark catch from the end of the dock. Using shrimp on the bottom resulted in 7 sting rays. I personally would rather sit on the dock and watch the dolphins and birds, but for those that want to watch movies, they have a collection of dvd's that rivals Blockbuster ! If you are into the beach scene, then Hunting Island State Park is a must. The provided park pass at the house allows you full access to everything except for a modest $2 fee if you want to climb to the top of the light house. Both the north beach, and south beach access have restrooms and fresh water showers. The north beach has the light house and gift shop. The beach quality is equal on both beaches, the south tended to be less crowded then the north. So if you want access to food and drink supplies the north beach would be the better choice. If you want more privacy, then the south. We were able to find 4 shark teeth on the beach as well. The house is tastefully decorated to give you the low country sea side vibe and has lots of beautiful paintings, which if you examine closely, many were painted by one of the owner's mother. Also they have a very large reading library if you want to read a book. I brought my own books to read, but had I not, there was plenty of material to suit most reading appetites. So in conclusion, a quiet and relaxing get away.

The perfect place to stay for families!!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures really don't do this place justice. It was more than we imagined. There was plenty of room for mine and my sister's family with room to spare. Everything we needed was there-fully stocked kitchen and on rainy days we had access to a huge selection of movies, books and games. The view was gorgeous and we enjoyed using the kayaks and crabbing from the dock. This is THE perfect place for a large group with so many things to do-or just do nothing! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us and we hope to stay again in the future!

Cannot express how much we enjoyed our time in the South at this wonderful home on the beach. Everything was exactly as

described, except better. Both sunrise and sunsets from the porch are an extra that cannot be overlooked. The kitchen was well stocked

with cooking implements as well as a stock of herbs and spices. The beds were comfortable and although the temps were in the upper

90's the house was comfortably cool. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

So close to perfect

  • 4 of 5

This house & location couldn't be better. Breathtaking views! Dock setup is excellent. House is fabulous & very well done. Beds are good. Only 3 things kept me from giving 5 stars. Thermostat cannot be controlled by guests. Last night @ 1:00 a.m. the thermostat read 84. I spoke with Claire about this on Monday & she stated that the thermostat is controlled by her security cimpact because past renters had left doors open while running AC. I assured her that we were not doing this. She stated she would get back with me. On Thursday she did get back with me stating her guy said there had not been any complaints before & we needed to be sure we were not covering the vents. We were not. Upstairs loft TV was not connected to Dish. So the 2 13 year old boys traveling with us had no TV all week. Also the sliding doors going to front porch had pieces of wood on them to prevent them from being opened withis note stating the doors were not working. Access to the front porch view was important to my elderly mother traveling with us due to her poor health.

Owner's Response: Thank you Annie for your review and we are sorry that you were unable to give us 5 stars but we much appreciate the 4 star review that you did give us. Let us respond to your three complaints in order: 1) The thermostat. The thermostats can be controlled by guests with limitations. In the past we have had some horrendous summer electricity bills due to the fact that it is easy for guests to leave exterior doors open when transitioning from the indoor living space to the outdoor living space. We know because we have done it.! In order to help control costs and keep them affordable for all guests, we installed an '' system which would shut down both HVAC systems if any exterior door or window was left open. You should have been advised of this limitation. In reviewing the records for the day you raised the temperature concern, we discovered that the kitchen door was not fully closed so the thermostats on the 1st and 2nd floor shut down from 4:50 pm on June-10 until 6:53 am on June-11. The temperatures in the house rose steadily to above 79 degrees F on the 2nd floor at 6:35 pm and above 79 degrees F on the 1st floor at 7:52 pm, reaching 84 degrees F by early morning. At 6:53 am on June-11 the kitchen door was closed, both HVAC units turned back on and by mid morning the house was back to 75 degrees F on both floors. 2) Satellite TV upstairs. This is a good point and we will explore the options with Dish Net. Thank you for bringing this up. 3) Two Exterior Sliding Doors not working. Due to the harsh ocean environment maintenance is always an issue on the Beach House. The rollers on the bottom of 2 exterior sliding doors have rusted, will not roll and the 'fix' involves the removal of these doors from their frames. In order to avoid any inconvenience to guests we are scheduling this work for when it will have no impact, most likely in the fall. Notes have been placed on the inoperative doors advising guests of the problem. Annie, we are sorry that we could not earn a 5 star review from you but we hope that you will return to our 'piece-of-heaven' and give us another opportunity.
