You are staying in the rural area so fire ants, wasp, bees,...are popular here. South Carolina is the home of palmetto bugs (look like cockroaches). No refund if you see bugs. They may come inside when the doors are opened. The house is under quarterly pest control and we are glad to call exterminators if you need.

                                                                Very nice home in secluded area. We enjoyed our morning coffee by sitting on the porch watching the birds and the pond. The farmhouse has 3 bed rooms and 3 bathrooms, plus a family friendly hangout area, which made it easy to feel at home. The communication between the owner and us was always easy and fast. We would love to return to this place next year.

                                                                Relaxation at its finest!

                                                                Inside of house was really nice and as advertised.

                                                                edward b.

                                                                We loved the house! It was very clean and beautiful!

                                                                Denise H.

                                                                Just awesome!

                                                                If you're looking for a quiet sanctuary to unwind and gather your thoughts, this is the place. Our family enjoyed the stay. The house is gorgeous and equipped with all the essentials for a getaway. There are attractions and local conveniences within a few miles. The ability to enjoy Kiawah Beach was an unexpected bonus. Our family will definitely visit again!

                                                                Great Stay

                                                                Udara R.

                                                                This house is amazing. Very spacious, clean and beautiful. This is the ideal place if you need a quiet getaway. It's little far from the city. But you will get to the city within 30mins or so. But you won't find it hard because those roads are beautiful with no traffic.

                                                                We didn't have to worry about anything while we were there. This house has a full kitchen with everything you need. Every room has a TV which is really nice. Most of the equipment in this house is new and the house is really clean and well kept. Owner sent us all the necessary information before the arrival. So we didn't have to contact them at all.

                                                                One minor thing that made us little concern is the bath tub in the first level bathroom. It felt little unstable since it's sitting on an unstable four legs (once, one of those legs fell off and I had to put it back. So we didn't use it much. But that's not a deal breaker. Also that would be great if you can keep at least one light on when you have guests coming. Because we got there around 6.30pm and it was pitch black. Glad we had our flash lights.

                                                                Overall we had a great time and highly recommend this place to anyone.
