Relax and recharge - best vacationin years!
We had two families consisting of 4 adults, 5 teenagers, and 5 dogs. We all had a comfy bed to sleep in and separation from each other to be able to read or nap while the others worked puzzles, played games or watched TV/video games. Of course those lazy-day activities didn't even happen until night-fall and the one day it rained!! We crabbed and fished on the dock, kayaked in the river, walked the property, used the trampoline and zip line, threw balls for the dogs, relaxed in the hot tub (you can fit 5 teenagers in there nicely!) picked fresh greens from the owner's garden for dinner, and walked with the dogs on the deserted beach each day. The kitchen was nicely stocked with things to cook with and eat on (and they had sharp knives - my biggest pet peeve with some places!). Everything worked in the house, the table was big enough for all of us to eat together, the sunrise from the back deck was spectacular, and the owners were VERY nice! Directions to the house are correct as stated and as given by Google Maps. The dogs on the property are friendly and got along well with our crowd. The beach is great and deserted this time of year - very few bugs on property when we arrived, but at sunset you don't want to be without good bug spray and a hat/long sleeves on the dock as the sand gnats get really thick for about 30 minutes! I loved the separation that the "pod" concept of the house provides, the washer and dryer for wet clothes (the beach and kayaking provided us with a few of these), kayak (2-seater), and the crab and fishing bait the owners provided for our use. Fishing from the dock was not fruitful this time of year for us, but we are novices! The guys enjoyed a great round of golf at one of the local golf courses - and they gave them a military discount as well! There is a driving range close-by, too. We had a good time at the local little shops, too. Kids loved driving the golf cart. Overall a wonderful location for a vacation. We had planned to go into Charleston a few of our days, but we found so much to do our location that we never made it to the city! House was clean when we got there and the purchase of the linens was well worth it when departure day arrived! We found an area where they could shoot bows and arrows at a target on the property but we never used it. I would recommend this property to anyone with children where you can let them roam the property by themselves or two familes getting together.
Owner's Response: We have certainly enjoyed watching all of the activity at the guest house from our vantage point in the big house. We are impressed with how well the kids get along and entertain themselves. So far the dogs have been a nice addition although five dogs was an exception to our policy! We would like suggestions as to other things we could add to our list of amenities although sounds as if this last reunion group found plenty to keep them busy. Thank you for the great review. The owners.
