We vacationed at Simply Seabrook this past week, December 27-30. First of all, I must start by saying that we were supposed to come in September, but Hurricane Florence made a trip to the coast dicey, to say the least. Jackie was kind enough to allow us to reschedule our trip without any penalties or extra fees. This kindness, as well as her prompt communication as we deliberated on what to do about rescheduling made a very favorable impression.
I read many of the positive reviews that prior guests had made about this property before we booked our trip. Now that we've stayed at Simply Seabrook, I am happy to add another positive review. We found the property in excellent condition, spotlessly clean and decorated in a charming coastal theme. I really loved the artwork and the artful accessories throughout. The hardcover guestbook information that Jackie put together for visitors was a great touch for guests, full of information ranging from good local eats to nearby shopping and attractions. We enjoyed riding the bikes that were included. We really hoped to kayak, but felt we might need a little local instruction before undertaking that, as we've only kayaked on a lake before, and never at the coast (plus December probably isn't the best time for kayaking!).
As others have mentioned, the newest generation Keurig, complete with a variety of coffees and creamers, was a welcome morning starter for us. The kitchen was well stocked with anything you might need for food prep and cooking, even with some staples such as oil, flour, sugar, and seasonings. The only negative thing I have to say, was that the oven was a little quirky for me to figure out. I had a hard time getting it turned on and off.
I loved sitting on the screened in porch, drinking coffee and reading, while looking out over the marsh. The lakehouse amenity card allowed us access to the lake house where I found one of my favorite things, a well-stocked library, with books to check out on the honor system. What a pleasure!
This was our first visit to Seabrook Island, and we were very charmed with it. We definitely plan a return visit to Simply Seabrook. Thank you Jackie for providing a wonderful getaway spot!
This was a great place for us to stay while visiting Seabrook Island. The home was very clean and just as described. The kitchen had everything we needed and the items were good quality, too. It was great to have the little things provided (soap, paper towels, spices, detergent, etc). The TVs in each room worked well and the wifi kept us connected. Also, having bikes and beach chairs already at the house was a huge plus - it saved us in packing room. Having access to the Lake House was a very nice addition. We used the fitness center and pools several times.
The owners were super helpful keeping us updated on the island activities. Check-in was very easy.The information left on nearby beaches and best places to access the beach was greatly appreciated! We took their suggestions and were able to see dolphins a few times! We didn't have any issues, but I believe the owners would have been very responsive if we did. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend this rental.
