“Beautiful ocean views and lovely furnishings, but in need of maintenance”
Reviewed 30 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Amazing views out large windows of this beachfront home. Pet-friendly with large main rooms that have plenty of seating. Well-stocked kitchen and 2 dining tables if have a group. But only 2 small bathrooms. Has the most charming furniture and decor--decorated in colors of aqua and green! Short walk down a sandy path to the beach. Outdoor shower is convenient for rinsing off. Internet connection and some children's toys provided. Even some bikes and beach chairs in garage.
However, this home is in serious need of maintenance! The ceilings in this home are wood, and almost every room has signs of leaks and severe water damage on the ceiling. I'm pretty sure there is an active leak in the living room ceiling. Almost every upholstered piece of this nice furniture has stains and fading fabric. The garage, which has a working washer/dryer, is damp, dank, and smells strongly of mold which prevented us from using the foosball and air hockey tables that are out there. There are several thresholds in the house which are tripping hazards, including one on the stairs. Some of the mattresses on the beds are comfortable pillow tops, but the twin trundle downstairs and the middle queen bed upstairs are very old and uncomfortable. Many of these maintenance concerns may not bother you during your stay, but I would prefer to be in a home that is not in need of so many repairs and it's such a shame to see nice furniture not being cared for.
One final concern that is more likely the fault of the rental management company: almost every window in this home was unlocked when we arrived. If there are 50 windows, then 46 of them were unlocked and some slightly cracked open. Not only did we have to go around closing and locking every single window (and some locks were inoperable), but most windows don't have screens, so there have been flies and gnats in the house all week (even though we have kept the kitchen meticulously clean and food under wraps).
In summary, it's a very mixed review! We loved the location and size and pet friendliness of this home. It has so much potential to be so charming with white and light aqua paint colors and aqua and green furnishings, it's just so sad to see that it needs so much upkeep. I'm not sure that we would stay here again in favor of another home where I didn't have to worry about the ceiling leaking on us.

Management Response

Thank you so much for letting us know about your stay. You are so right, the views and sunsets from the "Block House" are out of the world. These are very hands on owners and I know they will appreciate your observations. And yes, Edisto Realty (our maintenance, inspection and housekeeping staff) should have checked all the windows - we will address this issue in our staff meeting.

When you are ready to book your next Edisto vacation, please ask for the property manager for this home and she will know about all the changes and improvements the owner has made over the winter.

Thank you so much and we look forward to your next Edisto visit.
