Home, Home on the Beach

  • 4 of 5

A 6 bedroom 3 bathroom home with a great layout smack dab on the beach within easy walking distance of restaurants, shops, groceries and the good old liquor store. 5 of the 6 bedrooms front onto the ocean and all bedrooms have direct deck access. The house is very comfy with a homey living room and a large kitchen stocked with dishes and cooking utensils galore. The kitchen is in need of some cosmetic improvements but it is very serviceable. There is parking for 6 vehicles and the spacious outdoor shower room is ideal for storing all of your beach gear.

The owner was very responsive to our questions and needs right from the start of the booking process on through to the prompt return of the security deposit. There is no question that our next visit to Edisto Beach will include staying at the "Island Manor".

Fantastic location. Spacious w/ great layout.Needs a thorough cleaning.

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful location on the beach. The house was spacious and had plenty of oceanside deck space. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, utensils, pots/pans etc for the cooks in the family. The place needs a good cleaning . Kitchen cupboards-drawers had dead bugs & debris which we cleaned before using. Downstairs purple bedroom walls, headboard, & ceiling fan was covered in dust/grime. Upstairs bedrooms were much cleaner and bathrooms all clean.

Overall a nice place but we spent too much time cleaning before feeling comfortable using the kitchen Beach house owners were quite nice and emailed us a few times to check in.

Owner's Response: Our season starts in the spring with the house sparkling. Then we have week after week of rentals with only a short turn over time inbetween to sanitize the kitchens and baths. deep cleaning is not possible until late fall when we can actually get into the house again for more than an hour or 2 weekly. Being a 6 bedroom house with 12 people living hard each week, it is impossible to have things the level of cleanliness some would like. Many guests are really sloppy. Also Dead bugs result weekly in cabinets because of the spraying and pest control program in our humid and semitropical climate-lots of bugs. They cross the spraying barrier and die. This is a good thing. Live bugs are not. We will call pest control is you are getting live bugs. Also former users spread food throughout he house in all the cracks and crevices and housekeeping can't find it all, unlike I live or like to have my home used. We have found slices of bread between the mattresses for example. And Beer bottles behind furniture. Dusting behinds headboards and furniture is considering deep cleaning. Ceiling fans-i will alert my house-cleaner. We would love for the kitchen to be spotless each week but with large groups throwing things in drawers randomly and Cooking, cooking , cooking for 12 people at a time, and children and people eating all over the house, it is impossible. Image how much time it would take each week for housekeeping to clean the drawers and cupboards-all the nooks and crannies. they would never get the floors and kitchens and baths done. However, I will arrange extra cleaning if they can fit it in the overworked, summer turn over schedule. Next time in this situation, Please let the owners know within 24-48 hr. and we will pay for the housekeepers to come back and do some more cleaning at a time that will be convenient. Later than that, you will need to hire them to clean as we don't clean up after you have occupied the house as it is then your mess. It was not necessary to ruin the vacation cleaning when a simply phone call could have remedied. That is why we contact each set of guests several times and ask how things are going. Not telling us,&allowing us to fix and then complaining in the review feel wrong. Future renters have no need to be concerned, just tell us and we will fix anything that is possible and reasonable to fix. But if you don't tell us, we can't address the problem.

Annual Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at Island Manor and we enjoyed it just as much as last year! We love staying right on the beach and this year got to witness three separate sea turtle hatchings! When we spotted action on the beach, all we had to do was step out the door and head down the beach. Within walking distance to the ice cream shop or grocery store, we had everything we needed! As with last year, the owners are very helpful and easy to work with! Loved our time away with family on the beach, playing cornhole, games every night and just enjoying each other's company.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

If you need a Walmart on every corner Edisto is not the place for you. The beach is very quiet & family oriented. No fast food or commercialized stores only a very small Bilo & locally owned shops. Just what we were looking for. Island manor is a great house with everything we needed only steps from the beach. The porches were awesome!! We will hopefully be back soon!

Great place for a family vacation

  • 4 of 5

The Island Manor is a large home and in a great location. The grocery is near by and several restaurans. We were in the grocery nearly everyday for one thing or another. Go early in the morning as it becomes a real zoo later since it is the only one on the island. We had 10 in our party and it was nice that everyone had a real bed (not a sofa that made a bed) to sleep in. The matteresses were all comfortable. Two grandsons were too big for a twin bed but they dealt with it for a week and seemed to sleep well. The bedroom on the main floor was pretty small with only a 3 drawer dresser in the closet for clothes. My husband and I (the grandparents) stayed in that bedroom instead of the master on the 2nd floor because he has trouble with steps. We packed too many clothes. The washer and dryer are very large and nice so less clothes would have been a lot better. The kitchen has an unusually large quantity of dishes, mugs, bowls and silverware. Since I'm a tea drinker I would have liked a tea kettle, but heating water in a pan every morning worked. The 2 coffee makers worked really well. There were lots of skillets and pans also. We had to wash each one we used beforehand but that was due to whoever rented before us not bothering to clean them well. Had trouble with all the skillets and griddle sticking. All the doors opening to the decks were really nice. Sitting on them early in the morning watching the shrimp boats go out and the porpoise swim by was very relaxing. The beach was clean and it's easy to walk to the water. Providing large jugs for the filtered water was very much appreciated. We would have had to buy gallons of water otherwise as the water out of the faucets is salty. There are lots of opportunities for things to do other than the beach so that was nice. The reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is I would have liked it to be a little cleaner. Overall there were many positives about the Island Manor and we had a wonder family vacation.

Spacious house on beach for our large family.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Edisto. We loved this house on the beach. Plenty of room and all bedrooms but one face ocean. Loved hearing the waves at night! Also, the two balconies facing the ocean were used frequently to read and relax. We would love to stay in this house again on our next vacation!!
