Carolina Waterfront Rental in Great location
average rating of 4.0 based on 24 reviews

At least it was clean, mostly.

  • 1 of 5

Pros: common areas clean and passably decorated. The bed/bath configuration was just what we needed and the main reason we choose the unit.

Cons: Too many to list. The kitchen cabinets are truly awful and in disrepair. The cheapest of everything. Have to wash the dishes by hand bc the dishwasher is useless. The floor in the 1/2 bath was sinking and had many broken tiles. No sheets provided for the pullout sofa even though I specifically told owner that we needed the bed. Dryer was broken. Code for check in never sent. Process for locking door not provided but email states that some renters have left door unlocked. No towels when we arrived. We had to wait for delivery and they were cheap. Air mattress in unit and was needed, but there was no pump. AC on third floor not working properly. At the end of stay the renter is expected to do quite a bit of the cleanup even though paying a whopping cleaning fee. The site says dining seating for six but that is only if you count putting two people at the counter on stools. The deck has a delightful view but is so unkempt no one wants to sit there. The grill was so dirty it was not usable. That's not all, but it's enough.

Carolina Waterfront

  • 4 of 5

I felt the property was very nice. There are a couple things that need some slight maintenance. But overall the property was clean and a nice place to stay. If needed, we would stay there again. Good communication with the owner

Spacious Townhouse on the Water

  • 3 of 5

Great deal for the price - my family of 5 was very comfortable here. The rooms were clean and the place seemed well-maintained. Compared to other VRBO rentals I have been in , they skimp on items like toilet paper, paper towels, etc, but the listing does tell you to bring your own toiletries and paper products. Would have given this property 4 stars except for an incident where all of our dishes were placed in the cabinets DIRTY. I'm not sure how someone could put plates with syrup, gravy, etc in the cabinets like that. All the silverware was dirty too. Coffee mugs still had dry coffee in them. Major health hazard. I notified the owner and instead of an apology, she stated she'd never heard of such a thing. I am not even sure if she is going to follow-up with her housekeeper.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry that this happened to my guest. I followed up with my housekeeper, she was fighting a cold at the time, and when she didn't find any dirty dishes in the sink or dishwasher she assumed the previously guest washed and put them away (which many guest do). We have been fortunate to have very clean and respectful guests and it never crossed her mind that any guest would put dirty dishes in the cabinets. Please accept my apology. Gretchen

Great view of the lake,Nature at the door with cranes,turtles,fish,etc.The location was perfect .

  • 3 of 5

The townhouse is very nice and is what appeared on the home away site.We arrived early and we were allowed to check in early .It is located in the perfect spot for shopping ,restaurants ,and access to the expressway for travel to downtown or the islands.The mattresses,and bed linen needs updating ,the towels and other bathroom linen as well.There were somethings I was'nt pleased with .Such as the ceiling fans needed cleaning,batteries dead in the remote controls one television had to be turned on and off manually,all the televisions had to be reset due to the previous renter,and the grout and mold around the bathroom showers needs attention .To me it's details to the little things that matters.Details,details,details ,

Met our needs

  • 3 of 5

The townhouse was exactly what we were looking for as we visited Charleston for a wedding. The only negative was that the A/C was not working. We notified the property manager and he was quick to respond and send out a technician, however, the duration of our stay, the A/C did not work. This forced us to have the windows open and it was very noisy due to the planes and nearby factory. If the A/C had been functioning, it would have been perfect.
