Beautiful and convenient

  • 4 of 5

My wife and would I return, but a few things that we experience need too addressed.

!. We had to replace a light in the bedroom.

2. FLOOD light in bathroom , we could not reach to change our selves.

3. TV in bedroom did not work, Mrs. Woods said that she would send her husband over to check on the problem, but he never came.

4. Also TV in living room did not work well, no good picture.

5. It would have been nice if parking area , front porch, and side porch would have been swept.

6. Some times the small details means a lot, but the TV was not a small detail concerning the cost of the unit.

7. Also their was no bar soap in bathroom.

Great Low Country retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! Great location. No car necessary. Very comfortable. Very nicely decorated. Surrounded by great galleries and restaurants. Would be a great place for paddlers, with the May River a couple blocks away. Playground across the street too. It’s a great place to connect, or reconnect, with the Low Country.

Owner forgot we were coming

  • 1 of 5

I am so disappointed in this rental. I never received an email the day before or day of with the house's address, key info, etc, etc. I had to call at 10:30am on the day of check in, and the owner seemed taken aback that I was calling/had the house rented. She told me it would still be ok, gave me the address via text and told me where to find the key. When we arrived some 6+ hours after this phone call, it was evident immediately that she did not realize she had booked the home for the weekend. The house was not cleaned after the previous guests, the bathroom was dirty with hair in the sink and dried soap on the faucet, the used sheets were in a hamper in the bedroom closet, the bed was not made, the comforter and pillows were thrown all over the bed and there as no soap in the house. I called the owner who was extremely apologetic and said she would get her cleaning woman over to the house within 15 minutes, but I had decided at this point to leave and stay at a hotel. I was very disappointed because the house was adorable, in a great location and I was looking forward to staying in Old Town Bluffton for the weekend. The owner did fully refund my money very quickly. I would have thought that in the 6 hours of time it took me to drive to Bluffton once I called her, she could have ensured the house was cleaned properly and ready for our arrival.

Owner's Response: Sarah, we want to apologize again for this awful inconvenience and it truly was a mishap/miscommunication on our part. I manage online reservations and My mom who lives near manages guests arrival and she was out of town and couldn't fix the situation and the vrbo application didn't provide welcome Email as normal. The cleaning person normally comes the day guests check out but she had a family medical issue and wasn't able To Get there unbeknownst to us. We assure you this is not how we handle Managing our rental Home And we are terribly sorry that you had to endure this very unconvenient travel change. We are making double sure something like this never happens again. We would Like to extend a stay with us free of Charge if ever you want to come to blufftona again. Kind regards and thank you for your honesty, debbie and Caroline

You don’t want to miss historic Bluffton near the May River for some of the most unique shopping and dining in our area. It’s all blended with colorful and creative art galleries, history up and down local streets, and dining for lunch and dinner in charming settings. Come visit the Bluffton Oyster factory,the daily-catch market run by the Toomer family—where you can pick up local mahimahi, grouper, tilefish, and the like—and the only remaining hand-shucking operation in the state. (They also have a sit-down restaurant nearby.Walk to Calhoun street which is lined with fetching mom-and-pop shops and galleries—among them the Filling Station, with works by more than fifty local artists; Pluff Mudd Art, packed with paintings, jewelry, and woodwork; and the Storybook Shoppe, which carries good reads for kids. To satisfy your sweet tooth, visit pastry chef Robert Plantadis at the Midnight Bakers. You can also tour the Heyward House, on Boundary Street, an antebellum farmhouse that survived Union troops setting the town aflame in 1863; or just take a load off in one of the front porch’s rocking chairs. Grab lunch—or on Fridays and Saturdays, dinner—at the Cottage, and don’t let the tearoom decor fool you. Garden and Gun just featured Bluffton, SC as one of the top small town escapes in their latest issues!
