The second we opened the door and walked into the condo, I suspected we might be in for a disappointment. There was a musty smell that made me wonder if the place had even been opened in months. I attributed that to the ocean moisture and didn't worry too much. But that thought quickly dissipated when I saw the décor that hadn't been touched since the 70's, and a refrigerator that looked (and sounded) like it had just come from a thrift store. But I think we were most stunned when we opened the TV cabinet to discover a television that was so old it had a VHS player built into it. I had no idea they still existed. I mean, come on - the owner can't invest even just a few hundred dollars for a TV from this century?? Now, I will say that there was a flat screen tv in the bedroom - but it was teeny tiny and only got 1 channel. One channel. And maybe also look into a new couch. It was old and reeked. It was obvious that the owner keeps the good cushions hidden away for themselves because they didn't even come close to matching the frame. In fact .. it was so uncomfortable that we would stay away at night because it was hard to enjoy the condo.
What a shame that this condo needs so much updating so badly. Because the ocean-front location was lovely ... And Kiawah is such a wonderful place.
