We had a great time! Weather wasn’t the best but we were able to get to the beach a couple times during our three day stay. Took my 88 year old mother! The recliner in the living room was perfect for her! `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

The rental was true to the pictures and description online. The house kitchen was fully stocked, garbage bags,toilet paper,and paper towels were provided. The house was clean and neat. I felt right at home. I would definitely recommend the house to a couple or small family that want to stay at the beach. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

The remodeling is beautiful. This is the perfect house for my daughter and I and that’s why we have stayed in Davis for 18 years. The new boardwalk makes access to the beach easy. The upper porch offers the most perfect view of the sound, all the way across to Fripp Island on a clear day. Edisto is our favorite place in the world. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

We stayed at the Davis for the Thanksgiving holiday and were hugely disappointed in the home’s condition. We knew from the pictures it was an older home, but what you can’t see is the condition of the home. There are major soft spots all over the downstairs bath and kitchen floors and one In the living room near the sofa. I felt worried every time I had to get something out of the refrigerator I would fall through. I never used the dishwasher because it was full of rust. The home has definitely been flooded before. The doors were in horrible shape with peeling paint and rust. The only shower is upstairs and has the toilet right in front of it so it’s very hard to get out of the shower which also has rust in it and was clogged so the water backed up while taking a shower. There were probably 50-100 nails and picture hangers in the walls without anything on them and the upstairs magister bedroom had scuff marks on them so bad it really needed painted. There is no closet in the master bedroom and there is no room in the tiny bath upstairs to put your toiletries so they were on my nightstand. The microwave light was out, no light bulb in right side end table lamp in master bedroom. No vent cover in downstairs bath in ceiling, but it was laying on floor between wall and sink. Washer was so loud it could be heard outside while running. Only one blind in the house had a wand to use but the blinds upstairs were major dusty. The stickers in the yard were so bad we couldn’t use the yard. Something should be done to mitigate that. We did love the location and the view was nice on the backside of the house. It was hard not to carry dirt into the house because there is sand for the front yard, no rocks or pavement and you can’t go barefoot for the stickers sticking in your feet. I wanted to like this house so much. It was such a disappointment. I hope it gets fixed. It could be so much better. We did have lots of linens, the home was mostly cle `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

We love the Davis house! We love the old beach house feeling of this home. There are a few spots in the floor of the kitchen and downstairs bathroom that really need to be repaired because they are soft spots in the flooring & makes walking a little difficult. Love the location of this home because it is quiet and peaceful. The screened porch is wonderful but more comfortable seating would be nice. We have enjoyed this beach house for many trips and look forward to more fun at the Davis house in the years to come! `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

This was our second time staying at the Davis House. Me, my wife and two teenage boys had a nice relaxing week on the Ocean. The house was clean, and everything was working as it should. The wife adopted the second floor porch as her reading and relaxing area. I found my way into the hammock and probably would have stayed there for longer, but dinner was calling! The boys spent hours on the beach chasing Ghost crabs, lizards, and anything else that was moving! I caught sixteen small sharks and one about two feet long. We went to the King`s Farm Market and the Edisto Seafood Casserole was wonderful! The Atwood staff was great!

The perfect house for a small number of people. Very well kept. Beautiful view from downstairs and up on the screened in porch. Perfect beach cottage with all that you need. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Davis House was more than we could have hoped for. There were updates to the bedding, new bunk beds and patio furniture! The briar bushes in the yard and the walkway to beach were a nuisance, but the property and beach access far outweighed those issues. We would highly recommend Davis and would love to stay here again! `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

As always, our stay at the Davis House was wonderful! We love this older beach house, enjoy sitting on the screened porch and watching the dolphins swim. This is a peaceful part of the beach and just perfect for our getaways! The house is always clean and homey! The Atwood Realty folks are so easy to work with and have enjoyed a great rental experience for many years with them. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Home was a bit dated, but the back porch made all of those issues melt away. Dolphins were awesome to view from the back porch! We had a few issues, the A/C did not seem to work very well, the back porch ceiling fan had a blade missing located on the table below with a missing screw to remount it. The fan in the Master Bedroom light is loose. The TV selection could be better. At least one of the movie selections would have been nice, DVD use only on bedroom TV`s was disappointing as well. Privacy shades on the sides of the porch would be good. When the home to the right has the front porch lights on it is blinding on the back porch. The kitchen window on the right side home also is a direct view to the back porch, again better privacy with side shades would have been nice. The sides of the porch screening needs to be sealed to prevent bugs from coming in. We did not call on any issues due to wanting full privacy during our stay. We had to cut our stay one night short due to a family emergency. The sticker bushes at the end of the boardwalk are deadly! Walking barefoot later in the house and step on one! Overall our 2 nights there were very relaxing. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

We love the Davis House. It has the “old beach house feeling”. This house is perfect for our mini vacations. The location on the Sound offers a peaceful stay. The dolphins play in the water out front iof the house. The quiet walks on the beach offers a time to look for shells. The screened porch upstairs is wonderful. The Davis House has been our rental choice for several years and will be so for many more! `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`
. Sep 2018
Being right on the beach was perfect. However, the house really needs a thorough cleaning and to be more visitor friendly. Things felt sticky to touch and pretty dusty overall. There was no room in the closets to put your belongings or areas in the home to set your things. The screened in porch was the best for hanging out, but it was tough to get the one bedroom door open. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Out of all the homes we have stayed at Davis is our favorite. Beach front, cozy, well cared for, clean, what more could you ask for? The pictures do it no justice, there have been several updates but that was a nice surprise. There is no RO system for the home but getting water to cook with was no big deal, we don`t cook much on vacation anyway. The owners have a regular coffee pot and a Keurig which made me feel right at home. The home is perfect in size for our family of 6, enough space to not feel cramped. The back porch is amazing, I loved having my coffee and reading a good book daily there. The path to the beach was perfect for our 19 month old grand to navigate without being carried. The yard had plenty of space to put our floats, chairs and kayaks. The outdoor shower was wonderful, our grand only wanted to take her baths right there and who can blame her?! I wanted charm and the best bang for my buck and Davis definitely delivered. We can`t wait to return next year! `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

The house is in a great location with a nice big yard to hold supplies or play in. We loved watching the sunset in the evening. The downstairs bedroom is conveniently furnished for an extra family to stay. The porch was also a great place to sit and watch the ocean. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

This is our 4th visit to the Davis house because we love this little house & the location. We are happy the old bottomless couch is gone but the two wooden rocking chairs are not comfy. Move them to the porch and replace with some recliners or proper sitting chairs. For the 2nd time visiting, the internet was out. On the porch, two screens were torn loose & those nasty biting bugs came visiting. Overall, it was a wonderful visit to our beautiful Edisto Beach and we do love this beach house! The Atwood staff are always extremely welcoming & nice! We are ready to plan our next trip! `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

The Davis house was everything we expected. It is a cottage and that is what we wanted. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals. The cottage was airy and not too cluttered. We liked that we could keep the bedroom doors open to the upstairs porch and listen to the waves in the morning. I loved watching the dolphins swimming in the Sound. The cottage needs to have a DEEP clean. The ceiling fans were very dirty, i dusted them off while I was there. Also, the base boards in the kitchen were filthy, I washed those while it rained one day. The sink faucet and the shower faucet need to be decalcified. All in all we liked the cottage and will rent it again. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

The location and view were perfect, but the house needs a great deal of updating. The sofa in the living area is terrible and needs to be replaced. We called it the quicksand sofa as you would sink into it and have a difficult time getting out. The upstairs porch needs some major repair and painting along with more comfortable furniture. The upstairs bathroom was teeny-tiny, but had great water pressure in the shower. The floors in the house weren`t very clean. We did enjoy our weekend there, but definitely won`t rent this house again unless it`s updated. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Loved watching the dolphins. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

The location couldn`t be better, however it needs major updating and cleaning. It had a musty smell that got into my linens and clothing. I had to wash every piece of clothing I took even if I didn`t wear it. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

the conditions of the house was disappointing. It was not clean. The kitchen door at the bottom was repaired with duct tape. The twin beds in the upstairs room did not fit the bed. One bedroom upstairs had nothing to place clothing in or to hang. The AC supply grill on the stairs was bent outward and cause a large cut in my heel. The walkway to the beach had numerous nails walking to the beach. Would not rent this house again. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Excellent as always. Such a sweet little house for two people. My daughter and I have been renting it for 17 years. Broken window this year, hopefully repaired for next. Occupants. Everything clean, except floor should be vacuumed more carefully and sand swept off I carpeted floors. Beach in great shape. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

We really enjoyed our stay. The boardwalk to the beach from the back door made it so easy. We could let the kids go out just past the dunes and still see them. The porch! I took a nap with my husband in the nice big hammock as we listened to Stardust by Willie Nelson. Later we had boiled crabs with friends at the big round table

It was a perfect size for our family of four. I will say that for families with babies and toddlers, get a baby gate for the top of the stairs. Otherwise, you will be on high alert the whole time. We hope to visit that house again another time. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

The view was the best part. The house was outdated. BUGS & SPIDERS EVERYWHERE!!! The floors turned my toddlers sox brown within 5 min of being there. the floor was filthy. What does the expensive cleaning fee do? One of the windows was busted out and had been boarded up. The window had cardboard on the backside of it and the wood had been there so long it had changed color. The walk to the beach wasn`t pleasant because you had to walk around water through the dunes or get your feet wet. I had to take a board from the beach to make a bridge so the kids and I could get to the beach. Also, the walk to the dunes on the boardwalk was overgrown and had thorns sticking through the boards. The yard was unkempt. This was not what I expected for a beach front house. I gave this info to Atwood vacations and they gave me an excuse for it all. They did not want to do anything for my poor experience or try and make it better! I would not recommend the agency to anyone. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

This was our second trip to the Davis house and we enjoyed it just as much as the first time. I simply love the screened porch and the view is just beautiful. Checkin/checkout was quick and simple. Life at Edisto is just so peaceful and I hope it stays that way. We will be back! `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Our stay was perfect! The location was just what we wanted, a short walk to the Ocean. The beach was clean and the sunsets were wonderful. The house was the perfect size for the four of us. Ate out every day at the local joints. We will come back again! `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

House was just `OK`. Was clean and tidy but this is an older house that needs a great deal of refurbing. Would not stay there again without being refurbed. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

The home was very clean when we arrived. The view was breath taking! We were disappointed that we didn`t have wifi but we survived! The young gentleman from Atwood did his best to get it fixed and he was extremely nice.
The big brown couch was less than comfortable but the huge screened in porch
made up for the bad couch! We loved the feel of an old family beach home. And
my compliments to whoever the artist is because the paintings through the
house were true to the home! We truly had a very enjoyable weekend and we
will be back! The local restaurants get an A plus. We brought fresh shrimp home from a local market. It has been over 20 years since I have been to Edisto and
the island has changed a lot but I can promise that I will be returning soon! This
visit was a peaceful healing to my soul. The staff at Atwood were top notch! The renting experience was extremely pleasant! Thank you for a very enjoyable
weekend! `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

We were concerned about certain areas that were not cleaned to `Rachel David Standards` Upstairs one of the rooms had a spot or two of west buildup. Our week followed another family member, so normal in between cleaning was waived. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

It`s a lovely house and location with sunsets on the porch and large windows downstairs. The things I would change is the floor on the porch needs a rug and some comfortable chairs. There`s only one comfortable chair and two rockers which are uncomfortable. One large couch in the living room is terrible and can`t be used. You get down in it and can`t get up. Maybe a recliner would be better.
The doors are not secure. The doors need to be replaced or at least better locks. I didn`t feel safe. Since there are 6 doors to the outside there needs to be better locks and doors.

It`s a nice small house.

I would go back if they could change those things. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Edisto Beach is a longtime favorite of both my wife and I. We were excited to have the opportunity to have our 2nd anniversary there. The house however was filthy on the outside and in desperate need of pressure washing. Upon entry of the house it appeared surface clean but quickly realized that the furniture had dirt and grime stains. The house is very dated, which for a beach house is not that uncommon. However, we were left with an overall experience that the property was very much unkept and poorly maintained. We would not stay at that location again. Sorry, wish I had a better report, and as well I wish that I had been able to provide a better experience for my bride on our anniversary.

We had an absolute blast at Davis. The beds are small, but other than that, the experience was great.

We only had half the family this year and this rental was perfect for us. The bedrooms are extremely small, but all you need for sleeping. there is only 1 full bathroom which is very tight. the 6` boys complained of even being able to sit comfortably on the toilet! But the water pressure in he shower is amazing! The outside shower does not have a holder for the showerhead which makes it impossible to take a full shower. The ceiling fan on the porch does not work and the outside faucet does not work, so you can`t clean your boat. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Great week - Christmas present to my then girlfriend but after getting enagaed on an April cruise our vacation turned out to be a beach wedding with our adult children & there significant others??!!! Weather was mostly good & `Davis` was great - we were a little cozy but we`re not complainers - it`s location was great & all amenities were as advertised. Outdoor showers were great (since there was only one shower indoors). Kitchen could be better organized to allow for food items brought by vacationers. One upstairs bedroom closet was humorous - six inches deep with pegboards to hang clothes - we managed w a smile. Upstairs porch was excellent - except no one could sleep out there due to the one torn / nearly missing screen section. The delapidated structure beside the beach walkway could easily be cleaned up to be usable - store beach stuff overnight. The cleaning crew could have cleaned the hair out of the shower drain (so I didn`t have to) - don`t misinterpret my comments as we would stay there again! `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

We chose the Davis house as a place to stay during our first family trip to SC. When we arrived at the home we were immediately pleased with the view. However, upon opening the door to the rental we overwhelmed with a smell of bleach and water damage (musty and mold smell.) We thought maybe the house wasn`t used for a while and it needed to air out from the cleaning. That was not the case. The house had not been `cleaned.` It appeared to be vacuumed and wiped down but the wrappers and food under the pull out sofas told us there was just a basic cleaning done and certainly not with care. The list on the fridge was a giveaway that the property cleaning is done by the guests. The home had no room in any of the cabinets and the closets were filled with stuff. We were not able to unpack due to the limited filled closets. This home needs to be cleaned out of all the items accumulated over the years. The kitchen cabinets are falling apart and nailed together in some places. They were filthy in the groves and you could actually see some of the water damage. This house should not be rented until this problem is cleaned up. Members of our family started having issues with coughing and red splotches on their faces within 12 hours of arriving. We stayed out of the house on most of our visit and were able to use medications to treat the issue. By the end of the week, 3 of our family members were showing similar symptoms. They improved within a day of leaving the home. The house needs to remediated for whatever is causing that smell. The bathroom upstairs would not work for a larger person or anyone without mobility. There are sliding doors on the shower and you either have to step inches from the toilet or navigate around an oddly placed wall with about 2 feet of space to get in and out. The highlight of the trip was the local businesses. Everyone on the island was friendly and helpful. We will return to SC but will not rent this house again. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

We love visiting Edisto Island! This was our first experience staying @ Davis house. The first thing we noticed was the lack of storage in the entire place. Should get rid of the bookcases and get a few dressers. The layout of the house was rather odd. You had to go outside or through a bedroom to get to the screened porch. For as much as they receive in rental $$ you would think that the dryer lint trap would have been fixed by now since it is still a fire hazard and was reported back in July 2014. The porch was very dirty!! The only feature that Davis had going for it was the location - that was awesome. As for the property mgmt - we really had no interaction. I put that I would recommend this property because for a small family it is a great location and price but really needs a lot of attention and maintenance and feel that Atwood should make sure to tell the owners `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

We had a great time the house was absolutly great, we had a few little one`s that being on the front was wonderful but not being on the beach as soon as you step out of your house was the best. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Our week long stay was really nice. The house is not the ritz, but very clean and comfortable.

The main upgrade we would recommend is the bed in the main bedroom. The small double bed sits on a flimsy metal frame. Every time one rolls over the other bobs up and down like a cork on the ocean.

The porch is fantastic!

I stayed at the Davis house on Edisto Island with my family and fell in love with the beach and island. It was great to have the house so close to the beach and we loves the screened in porch. My only complaint is that the house was not very organized. We had to empty things out of closets to unpack our suit cases and couldn`t use the closer in the main bedroom due to it being full of 3 ironing boards and 2 peg boards. The kitchen pantry was also dirty (a used pot with dried on food was crammed in with random things). If you are looking for an affordable place to stay and are ok with dated decor and some clutter this rental would be great. Plus, the island is amazing and made up for the things the house lacked. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

This home was an older home. Downstairs was more updated than the upstairs.the main bathroom was the only problem that we encountered (which os upstairs) It was a very very small space and needed some renovations badly! None of our bedroom televisions worked properly, but the downstairs tv was great. Overall a very nice time on the sound. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

It was awesome to have an affordable option that was ocean front. The house is small, but we spent a lot of time on the porch. The bathroom is awkward. The kitchen is well stocked with kitchen tools. The dryer lint trap was broken and has been for some time. It was a fire hazard with all the lint trapped behind it; but I reported it so that will probably get fixed. The porch was pretty dirty. It was also nice to be able to sit inside and see the ocean when there wasn`t any breeze. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

We`ve rented the `Cracker Box` several times throughout the years. The house is charming. My children and now my grandchildren made a lot of memories. We will be back because of the history we have shared there.
However; the home was not clean and looked as though it hasn`t been clean in quite some time. The mattresses also need to be changed asap! We did not sleep well. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

We love visiting Edisto Island! This was our first experience staying @ Davis house. The first thing we noticed was the lack of storage in the entire place. All closets & cupboards were completely filled with years worthy of stuff. It was apparent that the cleaning crew didn`t move anything when cleaning. Davis house definitely showed its years. When we called the management company to let them know the toilet was leaking, the dishwasher malfunctioned, our grill was nonfunctional, the blinds didn`t work & the boardwalk to the beach had nails sticking out or broken off which was really dangerous, they sent out staff immediately to do their best to fix things. We appreciated their efforts. We have stayed in far nicer places. The layout of the house was rather odd. You had to go outside or through a bedroom to get to the second floor deck. The best feature of the place! Our ocean view & time together was magical! `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Very clean house. Loved location. However, I would not stay there again until upstairs bathroom is remodeled. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

My daughter, Jennifer and I have enjoyed renting from Atwood for 15 years. 13 of those years at Davis. I have always filled out the written review and hopefully, again this year, my suggestions have been noted. I know it`s hard with rental property to keep it tip top, but there are several things that need to be attended to.

Nonetheless, we had a great time and hope to continue renting Davis. It is certainly unique. Location great. Living room furniture now quite comfy.

Thanks for being at Edisto for us.

Davis was in a wonderful location. We walked down a short plank right onto the beach. The view from the picture window in the living room was divine.
The house has been in the Davis family for 5 generations. We are guessing it was built in the 50`s. While renovations have been done over the years, the house is old and may not appeal to someone who likes everything new and clean.
The bathrooms are not pictured on the website. That`s because they would deter people from booking Davis house. They are really old and in need of repair.
I am 5`3`. I could not reach the bottom shelf of the kitchen cabinets. The Davis family should furnish a stool for the kitchen. I had to stand on the breakfast table stool to get a glass or bowl.
The upstairs porch is nice, but the hammock needs to be replaced. If you sit in it, you will fold like a taco. You can also get into the second bedroom from the porch without a key. My 12 year old daughter was freaked out about that.
If you have never been to Edisto Beach, it is a secluded area. There are no fast food restaurants and only three restaurants and a grocery store. It`s a great place to get away and relax. At one point, we looked up and down the beach and realized we were the only people on the beach. Very nice.
We loved playing games and detoxing from technology in the evenings. There is a tv in Davis, but the reception was fuzzy and we were fine with that.
We drove to Charleston for a day, but spent the rest of our time relaxing on the beach and enjoying the sunshine.
We enjoyed our time at Edisto, but would have liked to have stayed in a house that was a little more fixed up. We live in an old house, so we appreciate old, but we don`t care for old kitchen cabinets and broken mirrors in the bathroom and holes in the bathroom wall where the toilet paper roll used to hang. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Since we`re related to the owners, the check in staff accomodated our very early arrival. Got to meet the Inspector, he was very courteous and knowlegeable. I left my luggage in one of the rooms, Atwood promptly contacted us and I was able to return before I got all the way home, and found my things in excellent condition. I did note to the desk on Check-out that I didn`t clean as thoroughly as I would have liked to have, but when I picked up my suitcase I met the cleaning staff and thanked them for their help, they specifically said `It wasn`t bad at all` which made my second trip home much nicer. Because of the early checkin, the missed suitcase etc. I was on the phone with the office staff a lot and they were so nice and helpful. Really enjoyed renting with Atwood! `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Davis House has soooo much potential but it needs a good renovation. It WAS clean, and the living room furniture very comfy. Kitchen was nicely appointed with almost anything you could`ve needed! The bathrooms are itty bitty and the only shower on the second floor. We knew that going in and it worked for our small family. Would not work well for `larger` individuals. The half bath downstairs could potentially be renovated and made larger if owners could put a little money into the house. Unfortunately it was too cold to enjoy the large screened porch! As far as location, it doesn`t get any better than this!! We had no issues with roaches or Palmetto bugs whichever you want to call them, but we made sure that everything was wiped and cleaned up before we went to bed... it was chilly too, don`t know if that had anything to do with them either... All in all, it was a good time!
If you are expecting Ritz-Carlton, this house may not be for you. If you need affordable, comfy, and beach front- this is the one! `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

High kitchen cabinets difficult to access (provide a step-stool?). Steep, narrow, dark interior stairs dangerous. Location great! Screen porch a plus. Never had direct contact with any of the Atwood people (their website worked well for reservation though), so unable to comment on their professionality . `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

The location was great. A reasonably priced house right on the beach. However, the house had a roach infestation (5-10 in the kitchen daily). Management was very prompted in sending someone out to deal with the issue. However, there were still daily sights and squashings. From a non-bug perspective it was a very cozy stay. The screened in porch was quite pleasant and it had enough space for a comfortable vacation on a budget. I would recommend checking the weather, specifically wind direction, before the trip. Apparently when the wind blows out from the dunes it brings along man eating flies along the beach, thus no relaxing on the beach without constant movement and swatting. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

A quaint, charming home in a good location on the sound. Untold beauty at the backdoor with short walk to beach and seashells galore. The upstairs porch was amazing especially for sunsets. Because of the stairs, I probably wouldn`t recommend for certain age groups; also the only inside tub/shower was upstairs, small and difficult to maneuver. The outside shower had hot & cold water and was great. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

What is said in the comments is true. It`s not the cleanest property on the strip and bugs are certainly present, especially in the kitchen. But, because of the previous reviews and comments we knew this going into the stay and were actually pleased with the condition which was better than we expected. For two newly weds looking to spend a quiet honeymoon on the beach at an affordable price, this house and Edisto Island were perfect. We woke up every morning to dolphins playing in the water outside the house! Overall, it was a pleasant stay and we`d do it again. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

The kitchen was infested with **** roaches, especially in the stove and dishwasher. We called and an exterminator came out and sprayed, but it didn`t help during our stay. The mattress pad on one bed appeared to be soiled with urine, which they brought a new one over. The house was not what I would consider clean. I feel as though the cleaning service should have seen the soiled pad and also all the **** roaches crawling on the counter. We had an 11 month old, so we were very disappointed with the condition of the house. The outside door in the downstairs bedroom needs replaced. I could see daylight through the crack in it. I think this house is way over priced for the condition of it. The full bath is so small you can hardly turn around! `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

We come back every year for our wedding anniversary. Our only mistake was that we did not get a bigger house. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Perfect. Same house, Davis, for a number of years. Love the Sound. New floor, some new lighting and other improvements were most welcome. Keep up the good work on this charming little house. We needed immediate attention to our air conditioning and Atwood sent folks before we even finished unpacking.

Couldn`t have been a better time. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

We enjoyed our weeks stay at the Davis House. The home is small and old, but fit our needs. If I`m being critical, the home could use some updating and general maintenance, but overall, there is nothing wrong with the home. The location is perfect. I prefer the sound side of the island because the beach is much more pleasant than the ocean side of the island. This is the second year in a row that we have used Atwood Vacations for a home rental on Edisto Beach and would recommend them to anyone. Check-in/check-out is a breeze and the homes have been just as depicted on the website. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

We had an absolute blast on the island. I still dont understand why guest bring linens and towels? East coast thing? I also loved the old beach house feel of the Davis property. Some of the cookware had cooked on food so we had to clean things before we got started. There was a lot of mold in the coffee maker. I think the `Palmetto` bugs just come with the region but we kept the house clean so we didnt see them to much. Overall we had a great time and thank you for being so professional. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

A cute property, but very tiny. Hard to turn around in the bathroom. Some of the lights didn`t work in the kitchen. We tried changing the bulbs, so it must be the fixtures. There is only one queen bed, so 2 of 3 adults slept on a twin mattress. I knew this going into the property and had misgivings about it which were backed up by reality. There were only 3 of us so it was perfect for the number booked. The upper porch furniture completely covered in a thick layer of pollen and unable to use during our stay due to allergies. You are right on the beach, however, on the lovely St Helena Sound. Saw dolphins several evenings. The sunsets were absolutely gorgeous and soothing to the soul to see. Perfect driving distance from Charleston where we went one day to go shopping and on a tour. All in all, it was a trade off for amenities for a good price on the beach. I think a small group like ours could be happy there. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

We liked the house for the money. The bathroom was a bit too small for the amount of bedrooms. It was hard to stand and turn around in there. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

This is an older (which I prefer), very well kept up house in a perfect location directly on the sound. I`ve stayed here several times over the years and would do so again. Had a minor issue with the house this time which Atwood handled totally to my satisfaction. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

We loved Edisto and being able to walk out to the beach was great. Very quiet area. House was the right size for a family of four. However the full bathroom was very small plus the screened deck had a dirty floor and the deck furniture had seen better days. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`
