"Great Vacation
The house is in an amazing location. It is within walking distance of everything you need, but it still doesn't feel like you are in a busy or congested area. The house was adequate for our needs and accommodated our three families (with 7 kids) well. The beach in this area is not as busy as it appeared to be elsewhere, so we were able to spread out and relax. Our only complaints with the house (which are very minor) is that one ceiling fan was very loud and obviously in need of replacement and the dryer took a long time to dry clothes (multiple cycles). Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would stay here again."

Just steps to swim. House was spotlessly clean on arrival. Beds were already made so no workout making beds before relaxing. The beds were also very comfortable! Living room furniture was comfy too. Kitchen had everything needed to cook with and make frozen drinks. A short walk to the pier/restaurant and several other restaurants, gas station(ice) and liquor store makes this location perfect. Beach was not crowded and houses are nicely spaced apart for decent privacy. Covered, concrete off street parking was great. Outdoor shower really nice after fishing/beach. First time visiting Edisto Beach and we couldn’t be happier with this house! We will be bringing more guests next year, so need a bigger house but will be using Atwood. "

"Shell Yeah!
We loved every moment. The location is perfect. The house was just as described. Had so much fun walking on the beach and collecting shells. Can't wait to go back! "

"Very Pleasant Stay!!!
We loved "A Shore Thing." It was the quintessential beach rental: close to the beach, comfortable but not fancy enough to make us nervous about actually living in the house, and a big deck. We would definitely return!!! The grocery store is close, there are some great little restaurants nearby, fresh seafood on the island and the beach to the east is awesome. The house has your typical wear and tear, but nothing that rose to the level of a complaint. We didn't realize until too late that you can get water from the rental service; the water at the house is definitely salty. Great Time!!"

"Great location - disappointing cottage
Cottage needs a thorough clean-up and interior refurbishing. Cottage appeared to have been bypassed by any cleaning crew for a substantial about of time. Couch, couple beds, window treatments need replacing before next rental. "

"Perfect location but the house itself was not great
The location was perfect on Edisto Beach and within walking distance to almost everything ever needed. The area was amazing and the people were friendly. The Atwood folks at the agency were kind and helpful at both key pick up and drop off.

The home itself was tired and run down. The decor was a GoodWill store feel. As for cleanliness, it was not very clean. The pots and pans were not only dirty but in horrible shape, leaving only 2 skillets to use all week. The crock pot was great and we used it quite a bit.

Towels and linens: we received towels for 6 while the listing noted it sleeps 11. The beds were not horrible, but not good. And the tv's were very old...along with the VCR machine in the living room. In all, the property needs a revamp, badly. Paint on the walls would go a long way. Fixing the mold and windows that have issues as well as cleaning out the bugs in the ceiling lights would make the appearance better in general. "

"Another pleasant Edisto Vacation
Love this house. Wonderful location (walking distance to grocery store), R.O. water, big front and back porches, outside shower, practical and roomy floor plan."

"Really enjoyed our stay!
We truly enjoyed our stay! - We have had to cancel for the past two years due to hurricanes, but we finally made it!
Property location is fantastic & within walking distance to stores/restaurants/shops.
Home "layout" is great, but could use a little TLC (mainly paint, & the hallway has a water damaged floor that definitely needs attention).
We'll be back! :)"

"A Shore Thing is a real pleasure.
This rental is perfectly located on the Island. It’s been upgraded since last year with concrete driveways, grass, and fencing. Real treat this year was the great linens with beds made. Outdoor shower is a definite plus. Kitchen is well equipped with plenty of dishes, silverware, appliances, and utensils. So close to the water. "

"A Shore Thing Review for 7/1-7/8/2017
We have rented this home for several years now, and have unfortunately watched it go downhill as far as its general condition. I understand that hurricane Matthew took its toll a few years ago, but this year I had a few safety concerns.
The bathtub in the bathroom on the right has an ~3 inch slit in the bottom and feels like the sub-flooring gives when you stand in the middle of the tub. The linen closet across from the washer and dryer is full of mold. There are extra pillows stored in there and they are covered with mold. It's the same place the mop, broom, etc are stored. A decorative pillow in the first BR to the right is held together with multiple straight pins which could easily stick someone. And lastly, the tile floor outside the bathroom on the left is shattered and the sub-flooring gives when you step on it. "

"What a great Vacation!
We so enjoyed our week at a Shore Thing. The views and the direct access to the beach was exactly what we wanted. We were able to walk to many of the restaurants and shops. The kitchen is nicely stalked. The house could use a little TLC in spots,,like the hall floor where the tile is breaking up..and it would have been nice to have some nice deck furniture to enjoy the sun porch with and set drinks on...but overall we would stay here again in a heartbeat! "

"Fantastic Week!!!
Rental was perfect for our needs! Clean and well equipped. Check-in and check out couldn't have been easier. Very close to grocery--walking distance. Not as quiet as some might want for Edisto but great for us to restock ice, etc. Beautiful weather despite bad forecast!! Great staff! Oven didn't work & was replaced immediately by efficient, nice staff! Suggestions: new windows, ice maker, hangars. Great time had by all! "
May 28, 2018 - , Maryville, TN

"Great Time was had by all
The beach is great. If you’re looking for a large house right on the beach, this house is for you. While we felt that the furniture and decor had signs of wear and tear overall the house itself was in good shape. After all you don’t go to the beach for the house necessarily, you go for the sun and sand and surf. At least that’s why we were there."
May 08, 2018 - Tracy D., Louisville, KY

"Great family vacation
The service was excellent! The house is very nice! My only complaint was the king size bed was very uncomfortable! Everything else was great! "

"Edisto is a sanctuary!
We absolutely love Edisto and the community. The home we rented was a perfect location. The back deck was amazing. We would rent it again however I personally feel the owners need to reinvest more of their profits in things like fixing the drywall damage around the shower. As well as quality mattresses. The couch was shade and didn't feel clean. It appreared to be kind of matted down. The second6layer of floor tile in the kitchen makes for a great toe stunner. There were several light bulbs that needed replaced. I went to bi-lo and bought a bulb and replaced the one in the master bedroom. There is also a lamp bride the bed that is falling apart. I didn't take time to fix it. "

"The Best of Edisto
It was wonderful to get to come back to 'A Shore Thing' after missing 1 year because of the hurricane. It was like coming back home. The only thing that I wish could change is the high berm in front of the house because I am getting old and my knees are kinda bad now so it was difficult for me to get to the beach. Just a little path would be nice. At least we had the best view of any other place on the beach. We plan to see you again next year same time same place. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a very Merry Christmas! Peggy and Joe "

"Lovely Beach House and Amazing Beach
My vacation rental experience with Atwood Vacation Rental went extremely well. They were there to help with any and all questions, and even once I was in my rental, if I had any questions about anything, they were still right there. I would definitely use them again. One lady, Dilly, even went so far as to offer to help carry things up to the beach house for me because I have a terrible back. Thankfully I didn't have to have her do that, but that's going above and beyond.
The property itself was perfectly laid out with two bedrooms on each side and a nice large open living room and kitchen. The only problem is that the windows can't be opened, and it would have been so lovely to listen to the ocean breezes at night while sleeping, and just have the fresh air during the day. It also made me feel a little claustrophobic.
I think the beach house is still in the middle of being painted and repaired from hurricane Matthew. It's perfectly acceptable, but you can tell that there are rooms that need painting. The only other "negative" was that the cupboards are in desperate need of a good washing. They are very sticky from someone frying a little too much fresh fish. I washed all of the handles while I was there, but it's something to think about for future guests. It happens.
Positives: lovely, layout, comfortable, washer and dryer, fully stocked kitchen, comes with bedding and towels and it's pink. Who doesn't love pink! I loved it. "

"Nice home, some difficulties with beach
First, let me say that the house is lovely. It is truly 4 bedrooms and it is located directly on the beach. It is also located within walking distance to restaurants and to the local grocery store. The property was clean. So, here was our issue. We rented the home for three days. On the second day, an entire work crew began tearing up the beach in front of the house and stayed for the next day (our last day) as well. They had large bulldozer and machine trucks driving back in forth in front of our house. With young kids, I was worried they would get hurt or not look before running in front of a truck, so we didn't use the beach during that time. There is nothing really happening at Edisto besides the beach, but we went to the local park. I as talking to the park ranger who told me that the beach nourishment project had been scheduled for a while and the owners should have told us/known about it. I also talked with the workers to get an idea of the schedule, and they also said the same thing. I did ask the Atwood employee if she would consider refunding one of our nights and they would not. She stated that this is not something she or the home owners could control. While she nice and her statement in theory is true, I do believe they could control disseminating the information about the work as everyone else seemed to know the schedule of the work. The agency was easy to work with and convenient, but I will say that I don't completely trust Atwood to make the best choices for their customers. A disclosure statement on the vrbo site when renting would been appreciated. In summary, if you can use the beach, it is worth it. If you can't, it is overpriced. "

"Great Place To Stay
Very good location. Nice house. The fan in one of the bathrooms was making a terrible noise like it was going to explode. Other than that a great place. The room under the house that is shown in the pictures is no longer there. Very clean. Bath towels are small so bring your own."
May 01, 2017 - Donna D., Newberry, SC

"Cozy home, great location
Everything was very clean and well maintained. The house itself was cute and we loved the back porch right on the beach. Perfect walking distance to shops and restaurants."
Apr 25, 2017 - Emily J., Knoxville, TN

"Ok place, will not rent again
the house needed better upkeep. windo in bedroom not repaired, front door lock latch would not work. Walls needed fresh coat of paint. Pillows on the bed were flat and soiled. No tupperware. The knives were dull. Location was great, space nice. The living room could use a large circle rug to add a little warmth to the room."

"A Shell Hunter's Dream
This was a great place for relaxing or shell hunting. Our youngest granddaughter found a rather large conch shell and commented "this is the coolest beach ever"! We had a wonderful time at the house. The beach was very peaceful and we enjoyed watching the sunrise every morning from the porch.The house was very clean and had plenty of room for everyone. The bathroom tub fixtures need some work. The beach side porch did not have a gate, however the maintenance contractor showed up on site to take measurements to rebuild one, but wasn't complete upon our departure.

"Love the Beach
This beach house is convenient to the grocery store as well as a couple restaurants. It wasn't "built yesterday" but is very functional."
Aug 11, 2016 - Betsy K., Augusta, GA

"Absolutely adore It's a Shore Thing!!!!
Everything about our rental experience was amazing! Amazing rental, amazing location, amazing Edisto! The location right on the beach makes it hard to leave the house! We look forward to returning year after year! We were a bit late getting out as my husband's back was out and my knee was acting up so up and down the stairs was slow. The cleaning staff arrived and they were most accommodating as we hobbled out our last items. Top to bottom, perfect!"

"A Shore Thing
We rented A Shore Thing in June of 2016. There were 5 in our party and the house accommodated us all quite comfortably. The house was clean but the bathrooms needed some TLC. The location was great - within walking distance to restaurants and stores. Although linens and towels were provided they were very cheap and we had to make our own beds. I've rented other houses in Edisto but this was the first time I encountered the beds unmade. Overall the house was great for the price."
Jun 21, 2016 - , Maryville, TN

"Great location for relaxing and walking to restaurants
Great house for getting on the beach for walking and shell hunting. Best location for walking to restaurants and enjoying breakfast and good seafood. Beach side porch ideal for watching dolphins and birds and front porch great for reading a great book and relaxing. Comfortable seating in living area. We had a wonderful vacation on Edisto and an easy drive into Charleston. "
May 30, 2016 - Marsha S., Honea Path, SC

"Sunrise Paradise
The view from this deck is outstanding. Felt like we're on the beach sitting in the living room. The house was a standard beach house but overall was in good shape. My only suggestion would be to bring your own bath towels (too small and rough), sheets and blankets( too hot). We enjoyed our stay! "
Apr 18, 2016 - Emma W., Hendersonville, TN

"House was nice, but.....
The house is in probably the best location possible. All the restaurants and shops are within walking distance and the view is breathtaking. That being said, the amenities are terrible. When we arrived, we had to put our own linens on the beds and a change of linens is not provided. Every guest was only provided one towel, and when we called Atwood, they stated that was the max the owner would allow. Additionally, no beach towels are provided, only one trash bag and no basics like salt or coffee filters. The sofa is also consistently damp and microfiber so no one wanted to sit down on it. I have stayed at much cheaper places before with far better amenities. "

"Atwood is always a sure bet for a great Edisto getaway
As usual the stay was totally as hoped for. The home was in great condition; the location was the best, and Atwood was completely professional and good to work with."

Location was great. Pet fee seemed high but for the property I guess it was fair. I can see where there is a major upkeep expense with the sea air. First time on Edisto. Wife's 10th visit. Will go back but may go off the beach depending on rates and what's available. Thank you for a great time. "

Sep 07, 2015 - Vincent M., Asheville, NC

"Bigger then the pictures
I was very satisfied with the house itself. It is older, but had everything we needed. Very well stocked in the kitchen, but definitely bring your own bath towels!!! Overall the house was well accommodating, but location seemed to be too close to the public area for our taste. We had lots of local visitors during the weekend that we had to run out of our outside shower and under our porch numerous times. The plus of being right in the middle of everything was you could walk to Finns restaurant and bar and even to the grocery store and subway. The outside shower was nice to have coming in from the beach, but the area needs to be cleaned out because you step right back into sand going up the stairs. "
Jun 01, 2015 - , Maryville, TN

"A Very Happy Place
We were all so thrilled when we pulled up to the the cottage and saw that it was indeed right on the shore line. It was exactly as pictured. The kitchen had ever appliance anyone would want. The property was clean and fresh. The only problem was the need for new blinds in the bedroom with the queen bed. There was amble space for the four year old twins to play. The layout afforded privacy for two couples. We had the beach to ourselves as the properties on either side were empty as we stayed from Tuesday to Friday. We walked to Finn's to eat and enjoyed their ever changing menu. We also enjoyed Whaleys and the Waterfront restaurants. The convenience of the great grocery store was also a plus. I have already recommended this property to a friend."

"If you love being right on the beach, this is your place!
Location, location, location! This house could not be better placed. Right on the beach, walking distance to gas station, grocery, and restaurants. The house itself needs some work because it's old and not well cared for, but it's clean and comfortable, which is what mattered most. We enjoyed our week very much."

"Wonderful family beach house!
Perfect for our Thanksgiving celebration. Large and spacious with room for everyone."

"Mostly satisfied
Overall we had a very nice time. The issues we had were the beds were very old and uncomfortable and the window treatments were in poor condition and cheap. They blocked almost no sunlight.
We also had problems with the showers leaking, but we were told the long and sad history of water and plumbing on Edisto...
mostly enjoyed it but compared to other houses we have rented in similar price range it was not as comfortable."

"Edisto in October
Edisto beach is my family's favorite vacation spot. We have been going every year since i was born and have rented from Atwood almost every year. We have rented the same house now for the past several years and were please to see several changes and updates had been made since last year. We only had one problem while there and that was with the stovetop burners not working properly. Trying to cook for 10 people on basically 2 burners is an unrealistic expectation. It was a rare occasion that we called maintenance and i hate to say they were really no help."

Nov 11, 2014 - , Kingsport, TN

"A Shore Thing
We really enjoyed our short vacation at Edisto Beach. Our house was in an excellent location so we could view the ocean at any time. The house was clean and well-maintained. At high tide the waves came all the way up to the house. The only problem we had were some sand fleas we discovered after our last afternoon walk on the beach. I would recommend this house to anyone who wanted to stay on the beachfront."

"My Fall Beach Getaway
I was amazed at the wonderful weather I had, and being oceanfront was a bonus. The roll of the waves sung me to sleep each night. We could leave the door open to the deck and get a breeze at all times. The store was in easy walking distance. The fact that I could bring my 2 dogs to such a wonderful spot was a big plus. I loved the easy to care for tile flooring in the kitchen/ living area. "
Oct 09, 2014 - Melanie S., Sally, SC

"A Shore Thing
The house was nice enough, however the beds were horribly uncomfortable. The house's location was perfect! Beautiful area and great town! We wished the swing had been at a height so that we could actually use it. It was a tease. Also, we were not given enough towels. You shouldn't have to pay for extra. "
Oct 08, 2014 - Brittany C., Corinch, MS

"September Rental
The location was great. The layout of the house was also very good, but the house was definitely showing its age. Good points were location, layout, back deck and access to beach. I would not recommend this particular property unless repairs were made and appliances replaced. During our stay, the hot water heater leaked through one of the bedroom ceilings, causing the ceiling to collapse."
Sep 26, 2014 - Carol B., Cleveland, GA

"Another satisfied stay!!
This was our second year staying at A Shore Thing, I love that they upgraded the doors and fixed the outside shower and the back deck. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. Great place to have kids and perfect location to the stores. "

Only takes one word. AWesome! Did miss the swing though and bath on right facing ocean looks like it's falling thru to carport. Informed agency upon checkout. "

"Wonderful Vacation
Great location. Great view. Loved the back deck looking out to the ocean. Part is shaded and part in the sun which was good for the view and for reading in peace. We like to cook while we vacation and the kitchen was well equipped. Grocery store right across the street. Plenty of room for my husband and I and our teenagers. Lots of seating. Washer and dryer worked well. Easy late check in and easy check out. Will stay there again."

My husband and I only had a 3 night stay at the shore thing which was entirely to short. The rental was as appeared in all the photos online we enjoyed the beachfront location being able to sit on the deck and watch the ocean and to go shelling."

"It's NOT a Shore thing
Boards falling off the house, no lock on the sliding back door, roof of the covering on the back deck falling in, worn out and weather-flithy furniture in the "game room," roaches in the house, and more: this property should not have been rented. We were told of none of these problems when we rented it, and yet when I complained, someone from the rental agency said they knew there were problems but hadn't been able to get into it to see what all they were. Then they apologized. But they knew all this before they rented it to me! And it was for a wedding anniversary! If and when it is completely renovated, it could be nice. But not now. "

"Weeekend Mini Reunion/Birthday
This was our first trip to Edisto. We loved laid back vibe of the island and the locals were very friendly.A Shore Thing is a very nice house extremely convenient to shopping as it is right on Palmetto just past the first curve.For being right on the street, it is amazingly quiet! It is also pet friendly! Once off the front porch and in the house, all you hear is the crashing of the waves out back. When they say beachfront,they mean beach front!At high tide the house is literally feet from the water.The property was spotless and the only fault we could find was there was no gas grill and the old Weber charcoal grill was in horrible shape and missing parts.
If you're looking for convenience and don't mind being close to the street, A Shore Thing is the place for you. P.S.--(Bring your own drinking water,..R/O water systems are great for bathing/washing, but not much for consumption) We will definitely return to Edisto Beach next year. Thanks Atwood for a great weekend! "
Nov 18, 2013 - Robert S., Monticello, FL

"A Shore Thing
If you want ocean front, this is it! At high tide the water is actually up to/under the deck. That does leave small beach area, but as soon as the tide goes out it's fine. The gas grill was in appalling condition, but there was a small charcoal grill you could use. The house was very nice, just the right size. We would definitely stay there again."

"Great Spot @ Edisto
We loved it, beach front, walking distance to all the stores, what we didn't like was the outside shower NEEDS alot of work(we had to use the water hose to rinse off), the beach view balcony isn't safe for children alone (some of the boards aren't even attached),the stove surface hot light is always on, and the swing down stairs isn't hanging, its broken off. Other than those details the location and view are wonderful. We would stay here again even with the problems."

"Great Place to stay
Overall very relaxing stay. The only problem we had was the back door handle cracked so it made it hard to open the door and close it. This happened the night before we left so I informed Atwood at check out. "

"Relaxing in Edisto
The house is in a very good location, walking distance to several island shops and food. AND RIGHT on the Beach. This is a place to get away from it all, it is VERY low key beach."

"Great Getaway
I had a wonderful experience at Edisto and would do it again. The location is excellent and the area is just conducive to relaxing. The house was very accommodating for my family and had all the needed amenities.

Things that would have made the place even better: I would have liked to have had better light blocking blinds in the rooms facing the ocean and sunrise, so I could sleep in later. The hot water heater is set too high for kids as you could easily scald yourself. The washing machine water lines are reversed, but this is an easy fix; but just know not to take a shower while the machine is running or even shortly after as there will be no hot water. "

"Had a wonderful trip! Beautiful house, loaction and experience!
We thoroughly enjoyed our time. The house was comfortable and all the amenities were in good condition. The water, of course, would be our only complaint, but we understood this is an issue for the areas water supply and nothing to do with the house. The did have a water purifier which helped. Overall had a fantastic experience!!"

"somewhat disappointed with house condition
We have stayed in this house several times, but not lately. The furniture was in bad condition in the living area. There was large roaches and the dryer was not working (vent clogged)"

"Beautiful Beach!
After staying in multiple locations along the coast, this is the most beautiful beach we have been to. Millions of seashells and clean sand. The house, not so much. It was surface clean. It was the deeper cleaning that was much in need such as cabinet handles, sides of the refrigerator, trash can, counter top appliances. The sofa, loveseat and chair were filthy and you sank to the bottom on the sofa. We had extra linens, so we covered them otherwise we would have been out shopping for something to put on them; they were disgusting. The bedrooms were clean and nice and for the most part, so were the bathrooms. There was painting that needed done. The porch was missing spindles making it very dangerous with the large opening in 4 places. Also some of the spindles were loose only on the bottom, so if they were pushed against, they gave out. I called the company on Monday and they said someone would be out on Monday afternoon or Tuesday. No one ever showed up.The spindles that were missing were sitting in the sand below. We took nylon rope and put it along the spindles crossing it where there were large spaces and securing the loose ones. I saw that someone had mentioned this problem in an earlier review, but I thought the problem would have been fixed by now. The city water is salty. They said it is safe to drink, but yeach! We bought water to drink and I also used it to wash my hair. If you had containers, you could get free water at the town hall. The salty water caused issues with the appearances of anything that the water touched, but I can't blame the company for that, but it was still disgusting. It is an old island and so as I talked to others, most of the houses appeared dilapidated. As far as restuarants, try them all even if your not sure by the outside appearance. We ate a lot of very good food. Be sure to try the Sea Cow! Their desserts are great! "

"Great vacation house on the beach!
Perfect house for two family's with children as the bedrooms where on each sides of the kitchen and living room . With the right expectations of standard this is a great vacation house on the beach. "

"Great Beach House......but,
This house has a great layout and the rooms are spacious. The kitchen has everything needed. However, the dining chairs and living area seating are just plain worn out. Our visit was over Thanksgiving and with the shorter days more time was spent inside the house and the quality of the furniture left alot to be desired. Otherwise....Great!! "

"Ocean Front, Dog Friendly place in need of updates
The property needs new towels and liens. There is also a dripping ceiling vent in great room thats drops water on ur head while sitting the recliner. The frigid does not cool properly due to the temperature numbers are rubbed off and cant tell temperature setting. Washer and drier do not work properly. "

"Great location!
We really enjoyed our stay at Shore Thing. It's proximity to the beach and to the state park were definite pluses. There was a leak dripping in the carport from one of the bathrooms above but the rental company quickly had it addressed. The house was clean and the beds were comfy. We will be back!"

"Great location...bummed we didn't get to stay.
This is the best location on the beach if you like to walk everywhere! Walking distance to several restaurants, shops and grocery store. The house is directly on the beach so no walk over the dunes. Very convenient if you have kids :) the only reason I didn't give 5 stars across the board is because a water pipe burst in the middle of the night and flooded the entire left side of the home. We had to wake the kids and move to another home. The property management was very professional and helpful with the move down the beach. Luckily, there was another comparable home available ocean front that we ended up staying the remainder of our stay. I would stay here again and will be renting from Atwood Vacations again for sure! I highly recommend them."

"Awesome Place!
We have stayed at Edisto for the past 5 years and this place was the best out of all of them. It is right on the beach so, when you get up in the morning you can enjoy your coffee with a beautiful view. Thanks Atwood for a great place!"

"2011 family vacation this was our 11th year in this home. Over the years have seen the changes in the home as has had several owners. We have always been pleased.
This year we did not have "notebook" with
general information, cable channels, and Edisto information. We are familiar with most, but the newcomers may need that information."

"A Shore Thing is one of a kind
This is the second year staying at this house and we hope to stay many more. It is a great property with a great location and view. I wish some of the back deck boards would be replaced and the furniture be a little updated. It's nice but a little worn
in and uncomfortable. Other than that we have had a great experience both times. Also Atwood Vacations are great to work with and so friendly.

"Christmas Vacation
My husband passed away in May 2011. My family and myself did not want to stay home for Christmas. This house felt like being home. The kitchen was perfect and had all the conveniences of home. We were very impressed with the entire house. I would recommend this house to anyone that wants to feel like being home!"

"Review of "A Shore Thing"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the beach. A Shore Thing was immaculately clean (kudos to your cleaning staff). We did our best to leave it very tidy and ready for them to do general cleaning for the next stay. There were only a couple of problems with
the property and one of those is truly a safety issue. First the non-safety issue. The desk chair in the family room is broken. Someone had to sit at the desk most of the time so we could all have seating in the family room and we had to place the desk chair
against the desk to keep it from falling backwards. From the appearance I would guess that someone leaned back too far in the chair and broke it. It was that way when we arrived. I was the first person to sit in it and when I leaned back I almost hit the floor.The
safety issue is with the spacing of the rails on the deck facing the ocean. We had our granddaughter with us. She is 19 months old and we had to stand in front of her at all times when on the deck because the railings are spaced too far apart and she could
have fallen through. At one point she reached to put her hand on one of the rails, missed it and her body started going sideways between two rails. Also, one of the railings was missing and had not been replaced. Instead, a plastic outdoor side table had been
set in front of the large hole (an open space over a foot wide. Not a good idea at all since our granddaughter could have easily picked up that lightweight table herself. We ended up moving rocking chairs against the railings to keep her away from them. It
made for a not so comfortable and enjoyable time on the deck with the family since we could not allow her to be up playing without someone beside her at all times. The spacing for the rails do not meet code and the missing rail really needs to be replaced
before a child falls through. We didn't even notice it was missing until about the second day ourselves. Not complaining, just informing. We had an absolute"

"A Shore Thing Located at Edisto Beach, SC
The house was for the most part clean, however our sheets for 2 of the beds had a few stains on them. One of the bed comforters (the bedroom my husband and I slept on) actually looked as though it had a few blood stains on it, so we didn't use it) Also,
once again the air conditioning wasn't working when we got there and we had a 5 wk old baby w/us this year so it was very hot. We had issues w/the air last year as well. Lastly, the porch deck on the beach side is missing a post, which makes a VERY wide gap.
I have a 2 yr old and I just happened to see it when he was only a few ft away from it while we were on the deck. If I hadn't, he could've fallen through it because it was that wide of a gap. For safety purposes this needs to be fixed. We still like this house
so I am not giving a bad rating, it's just that these are things that I felt needed to be brought to your attention so that you can let the owners know. They may need to invest in a NEW air conditioner and PLEASE FIX THE POST ON THE BEACH SIDE DECK. Thank
you, Tammy Jackson"

"Shore Thing Is A Sure Thing
Just the house for our group that has been coming together for over 20 years. This house was the best yet for as kitchen set up and appliances as well as being very clean!"

"We had a wonderful time. The only complaint we had was being to close to the public ascess. Loved being that close to the beach and seating down stairs. Over all great house!!
Loved renting thur atwood vacations. Would rent again from them."

"June 11-18, 2011
We had a great time - everything was great. The mattresses were pretty hard but other than that, everything was great. The kitchen had been updated some and we had all the cookware we needed. The house was really clean.
We will be back again!"

"The Shore Thing
Wow! What a great time we had in Edisto Island. The house was clean, prepared, and fully equipped in the kitchen! The only complaint was the towels provided were inadequate (too thin and small) so next time we'll take our own bath towels. However, the house is in great shape! There is ample room and our grandchildren loved having a tv in every bedroom! We so enjoyed the porches - both the front toward the beach and the screened-in porch for barbequing! We'll be back!"
