Spacious home for a family of 10. This is our fourth year and we hope to be back next year. Love Edisto Beach!

Great location!, comfortable rooms, good kitchen
. Mar 2021
The view was my favorite part, and I could see the ocean when I was working in the kitchen, visiting on the sofa, sitting on the back deck or in my bedroom; it really was special. The home was clean and the kitchen was well appointed. All the bedding was beautiful. Looks like one bathroom was in transition and a few were slightly dated, but the overall feel was amazing and it was clean and very comfortable. I would definitely stay again. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Dolphin Watch was perfectly located for the beach and beautiful views and the house was well-structured for a large extended family with plenty of bathrooms, bedrooms, and a nice open living, dining, kitchen area.

There were some disconcerting items. Some bathrooms had clear evidence of past mold that had been caulked over, the coffee filters provided were not a fit for the coffee maker and the coffee maker itself was a Frankenstein (assembled from parts from various coffee makers that did not quite work together). Overall, attention to detail for the maintenance of the home was poor with most door handles having a clear brown area extending around them, a heating vent in the Living Room ceiling about to drop off, and a rocking chair downstairs that had been broken for some time but had been left sitting with its broken parts (a couple of examples). Despite the fact that cleaning had been done prior to our arrival and the management company knew that we had been in town for some time, the heat was off and the home was cold when we arrived.

I would stay again but only if I could not find another rental close by with similar features but maintained by another vacation management firm. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Loved our stay at Dolphin Watch even though it wasn`t what we originally planned, but in 2020 we had to be flexible! The home was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was large and pretty well equipped although we found no can opener (we purchased and left a manual one) and no pitcher for making iced tea. The best part was the view, absolutely beautiful!! We had great views of the Christmas Star two nights in a row! Great assistance and response from the rental mgmt group when we had a couple of issues. All in all, a great holiday week at our favorite beach! `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Sunset sunset sunsets! Best in the world! A beautiful house, close to the sound, great for fkaikies with small kids. Two years at this location and we have already booked it for next year! Perfect place for a nig family with plenty of room to spread out. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`
. Jul 2020
Beautiful home! Lots of bedrooms which is what we needed. Although according to the rental agency it was updated in 2020, the place did show a good bit of general wear and tear. The ice maker and water in the fridge did not work. This place desperately needs some new skillets and a new blender. The stove burners on the right side did not work properly. A bathroom did not lock. One bathroom did not appear to have been cleaned very well upon our arrival. Perhaps just a tiny bit more attention to detail when one group moves out and another moves in is needed and some regular repair work (the storm shutter in rear doors did not work) We will definitely be back though. Can’t beat the view and sleeping accommodations. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Perfect location, house is in great shape, lots of space for our crew of 8. Will definitely stay here again! `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Wonderful time here. Thank you Atwood! Perfect place, as clean as pictured, and Fall is the best time ever. I have rented with your agency 5 times and never disappointed! `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

We always look forward to staying at Dolphin Watch A Side at Edisto Beach. Our family has had the pleasure of staying at this Condo for 5 years in a row now. We love the beautiful view off of the back deck. The Condo also has 6 bedrooms each with it`s own TV and 4 bathrooms. The master suite has a huge bathroom with a jacuzzi tub. The home also offers internet with wi-fi. It really helps us too that the Condo has linens and towels throughout. This year they also offered a golf cart for additional fees but it was delivered and you don`t have to drive it back to turn it in at departure. Just leave it at the home and Atwood took care of it. My family and I recommend this Condo to everyone. It`s clean with so much room for any additional family or friends to stay too. Thanks Atwood for an enjoyable vacation. We look forward again to next year! `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

The unit was clean and had plenty of room for 4 couples. Access to the beach was easy, and we always had plenty of space to ourselves.
Our favorite pastime was sitting on the porch enjoying a drink and watching for dolphins. We had sightings every day.
Thanks for a wonderful stay. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Wonderful place to stay with multiple families. Sunsets are unbelievable! Highly recommend if you do not care for the big water. Already booked my stay for next year. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Because our late parents spent many years loving and visiting Edisto, my sister and I rented two condos - Sunset on the Sound and Dolphin Watch, plus a campsite for an RV at Edisto State Park, for a mostly cousin (15) and our progeny (8) gathering. Members of the cousin group (from Ohio, Michigan, Colorado, Massachusetts and South Carolina), pretty much in their late 60s and early 70s, have traveled extensively world-wide. So, it is important to note their unanimous agreement that this was a wonderful week of casual activity in a beloved location. The properties were clean and well maintained. Damage to the siding at Dolphin from an introductory gale was quickly repaired, and a grill replaced. Sunset had a better equipped kitchen and a welcomed screened porch, and felt a bit homier. The beaches are beautiful, clean, and close, with lovely views. We did most of our own breakfast and dinner cooking but loved the fish tacos at McConkey`s. We were disappointed with our dinner at the Old Post Office. For the older folk the trip to the Charleston Tea Plantation was pleasant, as was lunch at a delightful restaurant between there and our return to Edisto that featured tomato pie. The Edisto Historical Museum is a nicely curated small gem, and the (Botany Bay?) nature preserve stunning. King`s country market provided wonderful vegetables, key lime pie and other great fare. Charleston and Beaufort are in easy reach. The two properties, Sunset & Dolphin, were perfect crucibles for our lovely family adventure. I intend to continue hosting occasional visits to Edisto among my northern friends. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

We had stayed at Dolphin Watch B side a few years ago. This is a great location with a wide beach, beautiful sunsets and low wave activity and fairly decent surf fishing.
Dolphin watch A-Side was definitely roomy enough for 7 people with 4 bedrooms upstairs and two downstairs, which were nice for my older parents to not have to walk stairs to a bedroom. Generally speaking, the property is a little `used` and needs a lot of minor maintenance issues addressed that gives the general impression that it has seen it`s prime. I didn`t make a list, but one window shade is broken, the sliding glass door needs to be repaired or replaced, the garbage disposal side of the sink was clogged and not functional, the carpet upstairs didn`t bother me but my wife was hesitant to walk on it without slippers, just a general need for updates and fixes. The kitchen is operable, but the oven/range is very dated and took some patience and adjustments at every mealtime. Everything was adequate for our short stay, it was just run down feeling and old in a cumulative sense.
Our visit was a weekend November 2, 3, 4, which was a great time to come to Edisto - no crowds anywhere. Probably they could use a couple of really comfortable chairs too.
This is really not negative in nature, we had a lovely time and the location is awesome. The property just needs a little `love` as we all do when we age! `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Great location. Dolphin watch was good for just that. House needs a lot of work and cleaning and replacing of major and minor things. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Overall we love Dolphin Watch Side A. We have stayed here for 4 years in row. We love the fact that it has wifi, tv`s in every room, six bedrooms, and 4 bathrooms. And the view off the back deck is unreal of the Helena Sound. Our crew always enjoys this home. We did have two small problems with the garbage disposal was working part of the time and the upstairs hall bathroom sink was plugged up and we could not get it unplugged but we reported it to Atwood and they are to take care of these two minor repairs. Was a wonderful stay at a wonderful house and look forward to next year. We love Edisto Beach very much! `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

It was a very good experience for our family this year. We were especially pleased with the fact that linens and towels were provided. The house was clean and the location suited us as a family. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

We loved the house and the beach at Edisto. The house was perfect for the 14 members of my family that came to enjoy a week at the beach. Love the old town beach feel of Edisto. Great place for a family vacation. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`
. Apr 2018
Over all a very good experience. Several items need attention, including cleanness of upstairs bath rooms (mold in shower, sink dirty)and bed rooms need carpet to be clean, front door knob fell off, which we fixed, air vents need to be cleaned. Suggest you lock the liquor closet. We will call Atwood `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

The house is one that we rented many times in the past. It is in dire need of paint,and a good cleaning. The bathrooms were dirty and moldy. I was sad the house was in such disrepair. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

My family has stayed at Dolphin Watch Side A now for three years in a row. We just love the panoramic view off the back deck of the Helena Sound. The sound is full of dolphins every day. With six bedrooms and four bathrooms we always have enough room for everyone. Also it doesn`t hurt that it has a TV with wifi and internet in all six bedrooms. Plus it`s pet friendly. The upstairs air conditioning wasn`t cooling properly when we first got there but after calling Atwood the problem was solved in no time. Overall we had a fantastic vacation in a beautiful place and can`t wait to come again next year. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

This house was very dirty. The location was good. The bedrooms and beds were as advertised. The house is outdated which I expected. The mattresses were not great which I expected. The view was great. The deck was amazing for sitting in early morning and at sunset but because there was no umbrella it was way too hot to use during the day. The bedrooms stayed very cool but the main living area was uncomfortable hot during the day when the sun streamed in the window. The deck chairs are very light weight and need to be watched ina storm because they will blow away. The AC was never able to keep up with the heat in the living room. It was excellent that we could bring our dogs. The biggest issue was cleanliness.

The bathrooms were clean except there were bath mats that were filthy. The kitchen cabinets had grease and food drippings all down the fronts. The kitchen drawers were gross with old melted stuff and crumbs in them. The baseboards were layered in dirt and grime. The air return vent had so much caked on dirt and dust that it clearly hadn`t been cleaned in a long time- probably added to the AC issue. The carpet was really dirty also.

If you can put up with the place not being clean or don`t mind spending some time cleaning this house definitely has a great location. It was easy to get to the beach on the board walk. The outside shower worked fine but I did clean out a bunch of dirt and leaves before I felt comfortable using it.
The hammock under the porch was a great place to lie in the shade.

I saw dolphins every day from the house and deck.
The dinning room table was a great big table and we had plenty of room for meals and plying games.

All in all I feel for the money the house should have been cleaner. I realize I paid more for being on the beach but I would rather have a cleaner place than beach front since None of the house at Edisto Beach are that far from the water. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Unfortunately, we were not super pleased with the rental home. We arrived to a very strong and lingering fish odor in the kitchen, almost all of the dishes and utensils were very dirty, and the house itself had several quirks that made the stay a little more uncomfortable than it could have been. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`
. Apr 2017
We had a wonderful trip! We found the island to be charming and relaxing. Our check in/out was seamless. We will definitely consider renting again. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

While most of the comments are negative regarding the condition of this home, it`s still getting five star reviews??? Very misleading. Yes, it has a great view and is very spacious, but you`re paying for that. Otherwise, it was run down and in need of a deep clean....dead bugs smashed on the wall, walls dirty, sinks with peeling caulk and mold, a/c vents full of dust, spill stains on furniture, dirty old carpeting, countertops and cabinets stained and dirty, outside shower door broken and full of leaves and dirt, mosquitos, outside furniture needs a good scrub down, etc.

Very spacious and plenty of living space for our large family. The view of the sound was unobstructed and the boardwalk was perfect. We have never enjoyed the beach as much as we did at the sound.

Overall the house was accommodating for all the members in our family, but it needs a great deal of attention. The sliding doors on the deck are very difficult to move and often times couldn`t be opened without assistance. Several complained about aching hands at the end of the day.

There is a mildew problem in one of the downstairs bathroom and faucets in most bathrooms needed replacing. Downstairs hall bath is slow to drain. Several blinds and the toaster were broken.

Ice bin in freezer was broken, so we had to purchase ice.

Several pieces of the den furniture are worn out.

An upstairs bedroom (street side) did not have any ventilation and remained hot throughout day/night.

Perfect location but property needs attention.

My family and I have stayed at the Dolphin Watch Side A for 2 years in a row now. We love the fact that it has 6 bedrooms all with cable TV`s in each room and WiFi. Plus it has 4 bathrooms and it`s pet friendly. And the view off the back deck is to die for. It is breathtaking any time of the day. Morning sunshine, evening sunsets, lot`s of dolphins, etc. The only concerns were the wooden walkway that leads to the ocean needs to be repaired in certain spots that are loose. And the mosquitos can be a little annoying in the evening hour. Maybe that area could be sprayed by the city between the house and the oceanfront. Other than that we had a fabulous time in a fabulous place. Very clean and comfortable. Atwood was always on point and very friendly. Would recommend this property to everyone and hope to stay there again next year. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Good week. The house was in fairly good shape with the exception of the sliding door. Our grandchildren could not open it and had to use the door on the backside of the house. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Beautiful sunsets and the perfect place to play in the sun all day! This is our second year of renting this property and we love, love, love the location! However, the home is clearly in need of general maintenance and repair. The ceiling fan in the den did not work, the back door is a royal pain to open and close, there are numerous things broken in the home, and the carpeting is in desperate need of replacement. On the bright side, Atwood Agency was superb to work with. Very professional and always responded promptly and courteously. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Property is for sale and in a sad state of neglect and repair. Owner is obviously not putting my more $ into repairs or updates. Broken mini blind slats, broken lover doors, missing cabinet handles, broken door hooks and doorsteps through-out, sliding glass door handle in living room inoperable,etc etc etc. Nothing major, but it was like suffering a thousand paper cuts from endless minor annoyances. Carpeting was dirty - we tried to vacuum it but vacuum was broken. No wonder housekeeping couldn`t clean it. Bars stools wobbly as well as dining room chairs and unsafe to use.

The Condo was exactly as described. No surprises. Beautiful setting with a short walkway to the beach. Kids got to see Dolphins and walk the beach to hunt for seashells. Everyone we met in the nearby Condo`s and on the beach were so friendly. Local people were kind and helpful with any questions. Would definitely stay at this Condo again. Attwood Vacations were amazing in setting everything up for us. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Always great to be back on Edisto Island. Our group thoroughly enjoys the peaceful existence and friendliness of the entire island experience. Enjoyable golf, quite beach, fun eating establishments, the Botany Bay experience and usually nice weather. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Our home was clean and very spacious. We had a great view of the Helena Sound and saw so many dolphins. The handle on the rear sliding glass door was very loose and one of the shower heads kept coming off but other than that the overall stay was wonderful. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

The location was great, and the house is plenty large and accommodated all of our family and our dog, which is nice. We also got an incredible deal, and it may be because the house is not in the greatest shape. I don`t know if it was because it was the end of the season, but there were a few issues. Some of the sinks and showers were clogged and very slow draining...the fridge never regained a really cold setting...the carpet definitely needs to be replaced. It was kinda gross. The outside shower was a mosquito nest...could not use it without getting eaten alive. We have been coming to Edisto many years, and will continue to come however probably will not rent this house again. Atwood, the leasing agency was great, and the location was fabulous. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

I could not have been more pleased with our vacation experience. The location was perfect for sunsets, dolphin watching and playing in the sand. If you want surf,well you will have to travel down and around the island. Having access to Wyndhems pool for a small fee was also a big plus. I had 8 teen age girls and they loved going to the pool in the evenings to cool off.
Although the home is showing some signs of age, it was still very well maintained. And it was clean, unless you looked on top of the cabinets or underneath the furniture. But really are my cabinet tops dust free?
We only had one little issue with the air conditioner on a very stifling day to which maintainance attended to promptly, within 45 minutes of my call someone was out to check on it.
I love Edisto and I hope my girls will make this an annual trip. Thumbs up!! `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Wonderful week at Edisto Beach with our children and grandchildren. This property was perfect for our family and for the activities that we like to do. Great location for watching wildlife, kayaking, and biking. The grandchildren loved the sound because of the smaller waves and abundant wildlife. The location was easy access to Pine and Otter islands with kayaks. Every evening we took our kayaks out on the sound for a sunset paddle among the dolphins and sea turtles. A few of our favorite places to explore were Botany Bay, Edisto State Park, and Pine Island. Our favorite seafood restaurant was Flowers Seafood. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

The location and space of the vacation rental was good. The overall cleanliness of the rental property was not. There were stains on the comforters. The walls had what seemed to be food stains. There was a loofah sponge and conditioner left in one of the showers. The dryer would not turn off automatically. The carpet looked like it hadn`t been cleaned in awhile. The outside shower couldn`t be used because there was junk inside. Overall, we were very disappointed with the cleanliness and decor of the rental property. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

The first week was just my husband and I. The second week our son, daughter in law, 3 mth. old granddaughter. Our daughter in laws mom came for a few days. Final week our daughter and 6 yr. old granddaughter came and two of our very close friends. We had a great time and it was almost like three different vacations. We`ve been going to Edisto for over 20 years and will be back again soon. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

The overall stay was great. Beautiful house that was spacious and Atwood was very easy to deal with. My two complaints are this rental property needs a gas grill. I had to borrow the neighbors and this is a must have item. Also the TC reception was very poor. I am pretty sure it is the TV itself as it did not appear to be the cable reception. It was constantly flickering and freezing and this was very aggravating when trying to watch New Years day football games. I suggest a new flat screen TV with HD. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Our family had a mini reunion so we had ages 2 to 80. The house was even cleaner than when we saw it this past winter. The kitchen was well stocked and organized. Every utensil we needed was there. There was plenty of room and plenty of privacy. The dolphins put on a daily show, and the sunsets were incredible. The beach was very accessible and we enjoyed many moonlight walks. Please let the owner know how much we enjoyed his/her lovely home. The men went kayaking every day and the women enjoyed their walks. We also had a few fishermen in the group. It is a great area for the children to play in the water because the waves aren`t so rough. We even got to see a shrimp trawler. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Atwood was very easy to work with and rent from. However, the house that we rented, Dolphin Watch `A`, needs a lot of work. And it was not clean upon arrival. A lot of plumbing and electrical issues. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

My family has been going to Edisto for 20 years. Our grandchildren have looked forward to our beach week for all these years. We have lived in many homes...some off the beach front when they were toddlers to beach front now that they are young adults. Dolphin Watch A has the bedrooms and baths which match our family`s needs. We have stayed in Dolphin Watch for 3-4 years. With our children, in-laws and grandchildren present, it always makes for a great beach week. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Fantastic view and great home. AC was low on freon and the service man could use an attitude adjustment for future work--he did not meet the service standards shown by the Atwood Office personnel. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

This house is a good house for a large number of people. The layout with the upstairs is good for families with children. Could use some `fix-up.`
However, we have stayed at it for the last two spring breaks, and likely will again next year. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Atwood agents were friendly but not always available during our stay over Thanksgiving. It was very cold and the gas fireplace was not in working order and not fixed until one day before our departure. The house was in much need of paint and had mold on the ceiling. However the location and layout of the property was great. If the inside of the house was in better shape and not as run down, I could recommend it. But in it`s present shape I would not. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Our family had a wonderful vacation on Edisto Beach staying at Dolphin Watch which, by the way, lives up to its name. We saw many, many dolphins each day very close to the shore. Very fun!! The location of the home at the mouth of the river made for very calm, shallow water, perfect for the younger members of our family and great for kayaking. And it was just a short drive to the waves for the older kids. The home worked well for our family. A few things would help to make the home more comfortable: the living room rug is dirty, the refrigerator needs a good cleaning to remove the odor, the toliet paper holder is broken in first floor bath, the counter stools are wobbly, the inside of the cabinets and silverware drawer need a good cleaning, and the can opener is too rusty to use. All in all, we had a terrific vacation and would recommend the home. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

When we arrived the house was clean, but the carpet had a terrible smell. The kitchen utensil drawers smelled like rat urine and they were a few droppings lying around. The dishes and utensils were dirty, some had food particles stuck to them. The house was big, lots of room. Didn`t particularlly like the beach area, water in the sound is dirty and foamy. Wouldn`t rent in this area again. But the rental agency was super nice and helpful. Would deffinately use them again. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Pro`s: Walk to the beach. Nice house layout. Awesome deck view and sunsets. Kitchen well stocked.

Con`s: House is showing some wear. Fridge in poor condition. Some blinds didn`t work. A/C struggled to keep up in afternoon.

Overall, good house for the price. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Fantastic view of St. Helena`s Sound! Wonderful time with my children and grandchildren. We saw a few dolphins to add to the fun! I could nic pic a few things in the house but the view was so fabulous I can`t really complain!!!!! `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

We were down to attend my nephew`s wedding! Everyone had a great time and the house was wonderful! It allowed everyone space to spread out and be comfortable. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

The location, size and general condition of this property make is very inviting for us. A few refurbishments would make it even more inviting. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Positive: Professional property management, Very nice location at the beach.

Negative: Many tiles on 1. floor were loose or broken. Dishwasher corroded, overall kitchen utensils need an upgrade, we were not made aware that the house is a double house. We found a cockroach in the bed room next to the kitchen.

We had a girls reunion with 12 family members. The space worked really well for us -- the table was large enough for all of us but (a pet peeve) we had to come up with two extra chairs for meals. Why don`t rentals have enough seating at the table for the number of people the house will sleep?

The kitchen was surprisingly well stocked and well-organized. I really appreciate that. But, the kitchen sink looked like it had never been scrubbed and there was a constant drain `gurgle` -- like water was running all the time.

The living space was comfortable and though small for the number of bedrooms, we managed very well between games at the kitchen table and conversations in the sofa area and on the back deck.

The only real issue with cleanliness/upkeep was the ceiling/fan area in the great room. THe fan/pole extension was pretty much coated with grey/black mold -- and the ceiling was nasty. It was hard not to look at it once you noticed it. Yucky.

On a positive note, the sunsets are phenomenal and flocks(?) of orange migrating Gulf Frittilary butterflies covered bushes along the raised walkway to the beach. Every evening was spent on the deck, enjoying the delightful breeze. The weather was perfect and we had a wonderful time.

The most dissapointing issue was the amount of dog hair in the house. We realize that it is `pet friendly` BUT, we payed EXTRA and thought that this was used for more extensive cleaning. Lot`s of lights were out (no replacements for most of them)deadbolt handle kept falling off. Drains(2 tubs),full of hair. Lawn was high. It was obvious that this property had gone `down hill` from our stay last year. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

We have been spending a week with our children and grandchildren for 17 of the past 18 years at Edisto. The grandchildren love going and although 2 of them are now college students they still manage their schedules to include this week. As the grandchildren have grown, we have adjusted our locations to accommodate their ages. I think this will be the most memorable activity of their childhood as they have families of their own. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Wonderful house, great location. Had a very enjoyable week. The sofas in the main living area were not comfortable. Sat loe to the floor and were hard to get up and down. That is the only complaint. KUDOS for the beds, rooms, bathrooms,etc. Great Week. Enjoyed the location. Not crowded and no waves to knock you over. Great fishing.

we rented as suggested without `seeing` for our first visit (faminly wedding - McKelvey/Buckles) we had a great time - cottage could use some updates including master bedroom up - bathroom door did not work, drains were slow in sinks, toilet flush had to be held down; kitchen utensils could use `clean out & update`; otherwise great! `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

The home was nice, clean, comfortable and well-suited for a large family vacation. The location on the sound was great for small children due to the lack of waves and undertow. We had a great time in Edisto generally - if you are looking for a week to get away from the rat race, this is the place. We`ll be back. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

We have stayed at this property for the last three years and will stay again next year. The property does need some maintenance but it isn`t enough for us to not stay. There is plenty of room for our 12-14 guests who stay. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Every thing about the place was perfect except the refrigerator did not work. I put food in it the night we got there and it still wasn`t cold when we left Sunday morning. Besides that everything was great. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Great layout, however the unit needed some TLC. Wallpaper was peeling, spider webs in high corners, toilets had to be plunged many times. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`
