Our family of four, including 2 adults and 2 young children, ages 7 and 3, along with my in-laws, rented this property during the third week of August. The home was exactly as depicted in the rental description. We found it to be very clean, fairly up to date, and only needing some minor touch ups here and there. There was plenty of space for our family to spread out, yet perfect for enjoying a meal together or watching TV. Both the home owners and the rental agent were extremely responsive by both e-mail and phone. Seabrook was the perfect vacation spot. My husband and I enjoyed running each morning, and our family thoroughly enjoyed the beaches and the pools. We have vacationed on Kiawah several times, but we enjoyed Seabrook more. We found everyone we ran into on the Island to be very friendly and it was not overcrowded. We did not mind the drive into Charleston and went there 3-4 times during the week. We did not mind the drive to the beach/pool (about 1.5 miles). It is not walkable for families with young children, but you could easily ride bikes. The boys enjoyed fishing on the island and when we took them to the beach after dark to chase crabs.
Regarding the house...We cooked several meals. We have rented homes before and have found they have typically been equipped with spices and foil and other small items you typically don't want to purchase for a week's stay. There are plenty of dishes and pots and pans, but if you plan to eat in, you will need to bring your own seasonings, coffee filters, dish soap,...etc. Not a problem, just a heads up. The coffee maker could stand to be replaced, but I am a coffee snob. We could not figure out how to use the jets in the Master bath, it appeared to be broken, but we did not call to ask. There were several harmless spiders and bugs at all times in the house. It is just the nature of the climate and location. If you are squeamish about bugs, be forewarned, but we really didn't feel that there was anything else to be done but to just kill them or scoot them outside.
We would recommend this rental and hope to return again in the future.
