Well stocked kitchen... shabby porch
I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was very happy with the location.
The vacation rental was spotless.
The property manager was very helpful.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
This is the fifth or sixth different property that we have rented over a thirty-five year time span. Many of the properties were rented multiple times, since we relish coming to Edisto every-other-year. We have come to expect that if one pays the "upper tier" in a particular bedroom range, then the furnishings and decor should be close to pristine and modern. This was not the case at Sea Plus. There was more bare wood than paint on the front and back porches and railings. The sofa pillow seats were sun-bleached irregularly and deflated. There was extensive rusting around one of the two bath tubs. In general, the entire house was not well lit, which was especially important in the kitchen's work area. The locks on many doors, and the clasps on the French doors to the master bedroom were oxidized and difficult to use. There was no outside shower stall to allow sand removal out of one's suit. The floor was uneven, perhaps indicating foundation problems or at least warping.
On the plus side, the shower's flow strength was fantastic. The desalinization unit (I presume it was ion exchange) was a dream-come-true, since bottled water was not required. We love to cook gourmet meals, and many of the pots were excellent (Cuisinart, etc). All of the upper tier appliances (as opposed to a left-over, half-broken item that was dropped at the shore as a "cast off") were excellent (blender, toaster, coffee maker, food processor, large mixer) and functioned beautifully. The location is quite close to the grocery store. The open French doors provide an all night delight of surf sounds. The well-made dining table seated eight quite comfortably with extra stools (if children were present... we had none). The great room and kitchen lay-out successfully and delightfully induced comraderie. The drawers in the bedroom chest of drawers were spacious. The person who cleaned the house prior to our visit did an absolutely excellent job with what she had to work with.
