"A beautiful view onto the marsh
We stayed at In Spite of Ourselves for a long weekend this March and loved it! It's secluded on the edge of the marsh, nestled in the woods, yet located in an easy to access small development. Great house! And fabulous porch!"
Mar 20, 2019 - Mary G., Columbia, SC

Had a great time
Would be nice to have lights and power at the dock
We bought a new grill for grilling out due to one that was there
Batteries need to be replaced in smoke detectors

"Nice location, desperately needs renovation.
We really enjoyed the location. But this house looks, feels, and smells like it hasn't had any updating since the 1990s. Mattresses were horrible, as well as pillows. Crummy and scarce cookware. Walls need paint. Cabinets and appliances in kitchen were rotten or corroded. At the price I paid to stay here, I expected much more from the house. Will not stay here again, unless these issues are handled. What has the owner been doing with their rent money? They charge enough for a four star rental but it is barely a one star accommodation. "

"Peaceful and relaxing
As we drove the small winding path thru the woods to the house, it opened to a beautiful view of the deep water marsh. We were met with the calls of herons and various water birds as we walked to the covered dock. The oak trees flanking the home were dripping with Spanish moss, and various types of palm trees also dotted the property. The home itself was comfortable and clean, and reminded me of the many beach homes I remember staying at during my childhood. The children enjoyed fishing off the floating dock,and the evening boat rides,which were easy as we simply put the boat in at our own private ramp during high tide. Now, if you have someone with limited mobility in your party, getting down to the floating dock at low tide might be a challenge for them, but it didn't hinder the younger ones in our party. On days the kids wanted beach time, we were just down the road and made a trip to the public access or State Park.Overall, we were thrilled with our stay, and hated to leave the peacefulness of our quiet marsh retreat. We will be returning to Hog Heaven but have a lot of memories to sustain us until then."

"Pure Bliss
We had a wonderful week. The view is spectacular, perfect place to kayak, troll around on our boat and beach on the sandbar at low tide. "
Aug 03, 2018 - Lisa P., Greenville, SC

"Location is Perfect
The house is very private--perfect location. Nice dock for fishing and boating. Furniture is uncomfortable and could use an update. "
Jul 16, 2018 - Nancy G., Central, SC

"Great place!
This house is on a great creek with lots of privacy. We enjoyed hanging out on the dock and around the fire pit. Lots of space for parking and your own boat ramp!"

"New Years at Hog Heaven
Really love the location. Have always been beach front fans but have changed my mind after staying here twice. The deep water marsh is so much better. Always changing landscape as the tides go in and out. Fantastic sunsets and such a sense of privacy. Private dock and boat launch, great! The inside of the house is large and spacious however the furniture, carpet, counter tops, bath fixtures and appliances need to be replaces ASAP. Just plain worn out. Lighting is awful for reading.Won't stay here again until those things are done. Could be best rental on island with those improvements, sorry that the owner has let the property go. Windows and blinds dirty. Needs paint and update."

"October stay
Try to get to the coast every fall for the fishing
and Hog Heaven has everything I need. My contact with Atwood has always been very helpful and pleasant. The few problems I have had are always promptly taken care of. Hope to be back next year.
Oct 23, 2017 - Jim W., Lexington, SC

"Lovely Location
We stay in this home every year because of the location. We love Edisto and being off the beaten track. It does need some tlc and does not offer all of the same amenities as it once did (outdoor shower, No electricity at dock) but the views are beautiful. The grass was not cut when we arrived and nor was it done the entire week that we were there. The kids were riding in knee high grass on their bikes. The house does need to be updated especially the furniture. Overall we are satisfied though. It is a great place for a quiet non commercialized vacation. "

"Hog Heaven July 2017
We very much enjoyed the boat access and the view from the porches. This house needs some interior TLC-missing items from the kitchen, bathrooms and bedding needed a deep cleaning"
Jul 31, 2017 - , Little Mountian, SC

"Hog Heaven
Hog Heaven provides a wonderful view of the marsh. Great for fishing from the floating dock, crabbing, etc.
The home provides plenty of room for everyone. Beds are comfortable.
The living room furniture needs to be updated. We took our own kitchen utensils (pots, pans, etc) as we had checked out the property beforehand and the cookware was not up to par.
The main bedroom had a ceiling leak during our second night of stay. Enough of a leak that the carpet would have been saturated had we not used trashcans to contain the water. The leak was coming from an air conditioning drain pipe that was clogged. According to the Atwood gentlemen that came out, it was a known issue and had happened before. Supposedly, was on a list to be rectified at some point. Atwood was prompt as well as the air conditioning company to clear up the issue.
The location was great, just the home needs some tlc."
Jul 31, 2017 - Susan B., Rock Hill, SC

"Great Environment
We love Hog Heaven. It is so quiet and serene there the bird songs in the morning are wonderful. The house needs some serious updates especially the kitchen and the den furniture. It is good for families but if you plan to cook meals bring a lot of stuff with you. I hope the owner can see that this is such a great place for a family vacation and will try to do updates one. We did have a good week despite the condition of things. We will be working with Atwood to look for another vacation house next summer. "
Jun 19, 2017 - , Pelzer, SC

"Awesome lot, Awesome location, Home needs some updates.
Truly an amazing lot and location. The house definitely needs some updates, as everything is very dated and some stuff in poor condition, but even still, it was sufficient for our needs and we would definitely come back. The boat ramp was also a big positive. "
May 23, 2017 - , Apopka, FL

This house is advertised as having a boat ramp, but what they don't tell you is the boat ramp is not accessible unless you have a small boat. The driveway is a maze of trees that makes it impossible to get a decent sized boat to the house, and impossible to even attempt to use the ramp. If you can manage to maneuver through the trees the limbs and vines hang so low any boat with a t-top will be damaged. I personally felt this should be mentioned in the description of the house. The dock has no lights and only one power receptacle that is a good distance from the dock. The house itself is pretty nice but has a outdated tv in the sitting area. All things said the house is ok but the boat ramp is misleading unless you have a very small boat. "
May 17, 2017 - Travis S., Union, SC

"Hog Heaven
Window sills dirty and filled with dead bugs; carpet was dirty; rooms just had a unclean feeling; spider webs. Kitchen was nice and stocked well. Living room furniture has seen better days. Really should get rid of the VHS player; shows updates are rare. View was beautiful, porch furniture was great and the grounds were nice."
Apr 10, 2017 - , Rochester Hills, MI

"Has great potential, but debris blocked boat ramp
Customer service at Atwood is exceptional! I suggest couple employees stay in house couple days, and identify all the maint issues. Edisto is great area to just enjoy family, and minimal places to eat, owner needs to upgrade kitchenware to allow proper cooking and baking during stay for family meals"

"Absolutely LOVED it!
This is an annual trip for our group and our first stay at Hog Heaven, we loved it and will be back! We especially loved the sandbar approximately 50 feet away from the house at low tide, went out there every day to relax and wade in the water. The house was clean and the perfect size for our group, nice secluded location."
Sep 20, 2016 - Laura H., Chapin, SC

"Perfect location home for the beach ride, shopping and fishing.
We really enjoyed our stay at Hog Heaven. Perfect location, beautiful views. My husband and son like a house with a private boat ramp, for their boats, which this house has one. I was able to sit on the porch and watch my grandchildren fish on the dock. The boat rides in the evening were awesome. The house had comfortable beds and all other necessities. I reccommend this home to others. "

"Hog heaven vacaion

"Great Family Vacation
We had a awesome weekend at this secluded hideaway. It rained, however the wrap around porch left plenty of space for everyone to spread out and the kids to play cornhole underneath. Beautiful waterfront setting, we definitely want to come back with our kayaks."

"Hog Heaven 2015
Very much enjoyed the porch and the docks. Really liked the property location and the views of marsh and creek.
Not pleased that cigarette butts were in the yard.
The video made the house seem more glamorous than it actually is.
Visit to Botany Bay was wonderful.
It was a great vacation and would certainly recommend Hog Heaven to others."

"Spring & Fall
This must be a popular house. We have been staying there twice a year for several years and really enjoy it. Thanks to Atwood for doing a great job. See you in the spring. "
Dec 10, 2015 - Jeff M., Duncan, SC

"Pros and Cons
Pros: Location, porch, porch rockers, swing on lower level, dock, boat ramp, large table, well designed and equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, adequate storage for clothing. Property description was accurate.
Cons: many..many steps, not enough towel rods, no ladder on dock to get in/out of boat safely, "slimy" tap water, none to poor cell phone service"

"Fabulous sunset
Rented this home to celebrate my 25th anniversary. We renewed our vows at sunset on the dock Priceless"
Sep 11, 2015 - Karen P., West Columbia, SC

"Restful and Relaxing
This is our second year at Hog Heaven. We enjoy just staying at the home fishing, kayaking, cooking and resting the entire trip. "
Sep 07, 2015 - Robin B., Cedar Mountain, NC

"More of a Pig Sty then Hog Heaven
My family has rented this property in the past before it was placed in the rental market, so we knew the conditions. When we were choosing a place to stay we again chose Hog Heaven because of the Atwood website stating all the upgrades, what a joke! It takes more than paint, new curtains and new living area furniture for it to be considered an upgrade. The floors were NASTY,carpet and rugs were stained, especially the rug in the living area. The handle on the stove was lose and the ceiling light was full of bugs. The hall bathroom door would not lock, the tub drain was broken and there is a loose board in the floor. The dining table is loose and the two benches on the ends are in desperate need of repair. The door knob on the door facing the creek needs to be replaced, hard to open. The outside faucets have leaks and the fan under the gazebo kept tripping the breaker. The overall appearance of the house is in need of pressure washing from the siding, windows and steps. The greatest asset of this property is that it is located on a deep water creek, because my family loves to fish, shrimp and crab. Another note, the times you having chosen for arriving and leaving cuts any renter out of a day of vacation, because it only takes your cleaning crew at the most 30 minutes to clean!"
Aug 11, 2015 - Cindy H., Blythewood, SC

"Overall, A Good Week
While we really enjoyed our stay, the house could have been in much better shape. To be a "hypoallergenic" house (which is what we were told it was when we were told we couldn't bring our dogs) the house was not the cleanest. While the things that really mattered were clean enough (bathrooms, kitchen, beds) there were closets with junk piled in them, carpet that was really dirty (with two 2 year old's this was a huge deal) and the exterior of the house could use a lot of tidying up. I really think the house just needs some cosmetic touch-ups and it would be great for the rental price. Again, we had a great week, and would probably stay here again, but giving attention to some of these areas would definitely make the house more appealing."
Jul 23, 2015 - Jason O., Kite, GA

Our family enjoyed this beautiful peaceful location. My sons and husband were a little disappointed with their fishing experience. Overall everything else was awesome."
Jun 15, 2015 - Maurice M., Maxeys, GA

"Weekend Family Time
We enjoyed an awesome weekend getaway with our adult children. They got to fish all weekend and caught a variety of fish. We were even treated to a dolphin show at the end of the pier. It was a great place to sit back and relax with our loved ones!! Our one wish would be to screen in the porch."
May 04, 2015 - drue s., sumter, SC

"Hog Heaven
We had a fantastic stay here. The home was clean and easy to access. Launch ramp was great for ease of launching our boat. Definately planning a future stay here in the fall."
Apr 28, 2015 - Tina M., travelers rest, SC

"A diamond in the rough
We had a fabulous time at HOG HEAVEN. Between the two of us we had five boys ranging in age from 6-12. The outside is AMAZING. The boat landing and dock were incredible. The views will take your breathe away. The kitchen could use some updating. We spent a magical Christmas here. "
Dec 30, 2014 - Caroline S., Charleston, SC

"Better than expected for fishing family!
The pictures don't do this house justice! The view from the dock is breath taking. We had more than enough room for 3 couples + children.
We loved the location, easy to find but still secluded.
The only complaint we had was the the water is STINKY! The smell of fish was more appealing than the smell of the running water in the house, other than that-it was a delightful place to stay."
Nov 18, 2014 - Courtney D., Greenville, SC

"Delightful place!
We loved Hog Heaven! Great, spacious comfy house in a beautiful setting with incredible views and breathtaking sunsets. We kayaked and fished and spent a wonderful, restful and restorative week here enjoying the Low Country off-season. We will definitely be back."
Nov 18, 2014 - Lynn C., Ocean Isle Beach, NC

"Great location!!!
We really enjoyed our stay for Labor Day weekend at "Hog Heaven" it is very conveniently located and you can't beat fishing and crabbing off the dock. The house was nicely laid out. Thank you very much and we hope to stay again soon. "
Sep 03, 2014 - Kelly K., Summerville , SC

"Great vacation
We had a great time. House was clean and had lots of room. Great views... Will come back. It would be nice to
Have a ladder or stairs off dock. Please mark pipe in water
Off back of floating dock for safety. "

"Amazing Marsh View
Beautiful property in a unique location."
Jun 04, 2014 - , Fort Lauderdale, FL

"Girls Weekend
Hogwood Heaven was absolutely amazing! It was a very relaxing weekend getaway for all the ladies. We caught a couple of crabs off the dock, went shopping at some very cute little shops, and spent some time at Botany Bay. It was wonderful and I would definitely recommend to anyone!"
May 22, 2014 - , Irmo, SC

"Perfect low country getaway
My family and I came to visit in early Spring. We were only able to enjoy the beach one day due to weather, but were still able to enjoy our entire vacation because of the house. The dock was great for fishing, and the creek was wonderful for teaching our little ones to kayak. The property has plenty of room for grilling and relaxing outdoors. We will definitely be repeat visitors. "

"fishing trip
perfect spot for fishing in the creek"
Nov 18, 2013 - Joseph W., Norway, SC

"Hog Heaven Fishing 2013
The house was very comfortable with good boating dock. Had to work out water supply for the dock (boat cleaning)as the uderground plumbing had burst in the past. Carpets in dining and living needed cleaning or replacement (understand this was scheduled). Some paving of accesses to stairs would reduce amount of sand and dirt carried into the house. The only inconvenience of the location was the slow boat ride (no wake zones) out of the creek to the sound. When the fishing is good, this is tolerable. Otherwise, very good house for boating. "
Nov 18, 2013 - , WAYNESVILLE, NC

"Impressive location, great house
At the last minute we needed a house as we wanted to take visiting relatives from Montana to experience Edisto Beach. We weren't sure about the location as we had always stayed near the beach but we ended up preferring this location. It was so tranquil and serene. We crabbed and fished from the dock, sat on the wrap around porches each night, and ate low country boil together at the huge trestle table! We saw dolphins and sea birds. It really was perfect for us. A short drive to the beach and shops was a fair trade off for the privacy and quiet of Hog Heaven. Our relatives were very impressed and so were we. "
Jul 22, 2013 - , Evans, GA

"Pretty Good
Went with a group of 4 guys. Overall the place worked well for us. Fishing was good off the dock once we figured out what they were biting on (live or frozen shrimp close to dock on bottom; not cut bait). House was clean, but beds, carpet, and other furniture not in the best shape. "
Apr 10, 2013 - , Lewsville, TX

"Family Vacation
The shrimping was a little slack and we did have to call and have the toliet worked on because it was leaking. Over all we enjoyed our stay and plan to rent again."
Apr 05, 2013 - , Gaston, SC

"Long Weekender
The house was great and the view was amazing. The only suggestion I would make would be to have some hangers in the closets for clothes and a blanket for the sleeper sofa. "
Mar 21, 2013 - , Lexington, SC

"Amazing Weekend Getaway
Thank you so much for making our weekend stay at Hog Heaven one to remember. It is such a lovely piece of property with so much to do around. We will definitely be coming back again this summer and fall. "
Mar 12, 2013 - Paige T., Mt. Pleasant, SC

"Awesome place to stay
Had a great time at a beautiful house right on the water with a private boat dock.Secluded by trees. I would definately stay here again.Thanks ATTWOOD Reality for all that you did for me,A great company to work with."

"Fishing weekend
House and location were great for our fishing trip. Only negative is that the water was awful, couldn't even brush my teeth with it."

"Beautiful view!!!
This is a great house with a beautiful view. The wrap around porch and rocking chairs were a big hit. We will stay here again."
