"Sheila was a most gracious host. We had some issues while we were staying there and Sheila was so proactive in handling everything. We would not hesitate to use Sheila again or stay in this beautiful Wachesaw Plantation. It was so memorable. The quietness, the beautiful trees, the pool, the screened in porches with fans-so enjoyable. We have been telling everyone about it!"

Beautiful house that needs work with a very miserable property manager!

  • 1 of 5

We knew when we booked that they had "critters". Upon arriving, everything 'appeared' clean. We drove 12 hours from where we live so were exhausted upon arrival. All seemed fine until..That night we went to bed in our King size bed (which was the worst bed I've ever slept on), in the middle of the night I flipped on the bathroom switch to see a huge German roach-not palmetto bug which is the critter they speak of.. run across the floor. By huge, I mean about 3 inches in length (this happened many nights during our stay). The next morning we saw another German roach and then another. It was very upsetting. Seeing these large roaches in your bathtub in the middle of the night or ON THE ARMCHAIR OF THE COUCH WHILE SITTING ON IT, kitchen! I called the property manager. Boy is she lacking that southern charm! Quite nasty, short with me and to the point, no empathy from her. We were staying a full month. She gave us some credits as I cleaned the entire house THOROUGHLY which is why they had this problem (very dirty). The other things that caused the problem was the old windows and screens with holes or slits..bugs can easily get in. I asked for an inside exterminator (outside exterminators do the grounds on the second week every month) and she was not happy. She reluctantly scheduled for one to come out but found out WHEN I CALLED HER that he had a family emergency and couldn't make it that day. Beautiful day wasted on our vacation for an exterminator. Had our 40 lb dog with us and I did not want to leave him in the sunroom as was her suggestion (90 degrees out!) on the next time he was to come out. He was late that day as well but she came to the house this time and sat in her car. I went out to offer something cold to drink and to come in and she said "I'm fine".Southern charm not one of her qualities. I spoke to neighbors who said they never see Palmetto bugs in their homes, let alone roaches. So....hmm. Maybe it's because of the dirt, the old windows, or the front door can't close. Its latch is taped because they havn't replaced the doorknob since one of the renters lost their key during a prior stay, that leaves 2 renters using one door with no lock. After texts of the house not being clean and the issue with the bugs and then the dishwasher overflowing and dealing with that mess (not an apology or how is everything when she saw us in the lot-NOT EVEN A HELLO), we got credits. Won't return. Nice home but needs minor repairs+good mgr.

Owner's Response: Before the guests arrived at the cottage, they continuously asked us to waive the cleaning fee. Said the wife was a clean person and would leave the property better than it was when they arrived. When they arrived, they said everything was fine and clean. After a few days, the complaints came... via text bombing. I offered a complimentary cleaning to resolve any issues. Wife declined the offer. Later the demands for a credit refund starting following the complaints. We're just thankful that we (owners and managers) can now rate our guest's stay too, to avoid another owner hosting these guests. For a guest who says they are clean people, the cottage was left dirty. The bedding was filthy and was taken straight to the dry cleaners when we did our departure walk-thru. Also, this guest talks about the dishwasher issue. The plumber stated to us this guest had so much food in the dishwasher drain that it clogged and backed up. Not the good habit of a clean person. I guess they don't know you rinse off the dish before putting it in the dishwasher. They complained about the occasional palmetto bug they found inside and on the porch. We had pest services in the cottage twice in addition to the monthly pest service. The guest became outraged when the service tech had a family emergency and had to reschedule one of the visits for another day. Complainers that you just can't please.

April 2017

Stayed in this beautiful cottage for my daughters wedding at Wachesaw Plantation. Reception and ceremony site is just steps away from this cottage should you be planning a wedding here. Very clean, comfortable and well equipped. Would stay here again and will recommend to my friends who visit us in Myrtle Beach. Met the owner while leaving...thanks again Ms. Joyner. The next door neighbor is so very friendly. Loved everything about staying here. Only wish I could have had more time to enjoy the views from screened porches. Thanks for sharing your cottage.
