We went for a 3 night stay in September 2016 with family menbers-enjoyed thoroughly. Beautiful / clean place and easy for grandma to get around the house. Parking will accommodate 2 cars-have to go down street to park in special area as no parking on street in wild dunes in the particular area we were. This was probably the only set back but we worked it out as we really didn't want to go anywhere anyway off the island. Just a little cumbersome if you have a friend to visit for dinner etc..There is really a king bed ( says queen) in one room, queen in another then the twins as it describes-the twin mattresses were comfortable-old review in past said not.There is a Keurig as well as regular coffee maker.There are pass accesses to the pavilion area where there are 2 pools/one adult pool and 1 family pool that is steps away from the ocean and this area has towels for your use which was nice. I just had trouble finding the home when we arrived so I am posting the address at the end. Check in was a little confusing at first( should be a pass at gate? and supposedly was but they couldn't find)but the gate people let me in and i went to find the home from a picture i had. Address is 86 seaside cottage, isle pass sc which is a short healthy walk to the grand pavilion activities/pools/ocean / food/ shops etc...there is also a shorter walk to another beach access that has steps down to the beach where there was some erosion(thats why they made steps). I am a pool girl so liked heading to the pavilion area.The back porch has a table and 4 chairs and a couple of metal chairs i ended up using a pillow to accommodate grandma to make a little more comfy so she could enjoy the lagoon behind the home which was a nice area to sit and socialize. The den , kitchen and dining area are very accomodating. i hope to revisit in the future.
The "less than 2 small blocks to the ocean" is a little misleading. Yes, a short walk allows you to SEE the ocean (can not access beach/water), but due to major beach erosion, you can not walk on the beach except in front of the Grand Pavilion (good stroll to the right of the home) or farther down to the left (where a removable sea wall is located). So the walk path is not direct and youngsters for sure need an adult to navigate.
This home photographed very well...the living room sofa is different and the metal chairs on the screened porch did not have cushions (wooden ones are shown in the photos). The twin beds are very small with thin mattresses, so be aware they are for young children. Several of the lamps did not operate (the knob/switch was missing) and most of the blinds are missing wands to change slat direction (the 2 front bedrooms are really (really) affected by the street lamp in front of the home), so just little things like that need maintenance. All of the appliances work well and the home is clean and a nice wall-mounted TV is now in the living room. It is an easy walk (block or so) to the coffee shop, etc. Overall this worked for our family, but be aware you're not quite getting what is shown in the photographs and description.
We had the best experience at this house and the owner was lovely to work with. The house was beautiful and so close to the beach and village. We loved the porch to be able to sit and read on it in the mornings. Couldn't have asked for more. We will DEFINITELY be back and highly recommend to others!
I had a nice stay here with my family. It’s a nice property with good value and we enjoyed both the beach and pool access. It’s clearly equipped as a rental which is probably typical. Overall we had a positive experience.
Our family stayed here for a week in May. The location is great...Very close to beach! The home was very tidy and clean...everything was modern and comfortable. The porches made for nice evenings outside. Very quiet and quaint with a nice ocean breeze. The kids were excited about the two pools on property. They were delightful! Also far enough away from the city but close enough for great dining when we did go out. Owner was very hospitable and attentive. We hope to be back in the fall!
When we arrived it took us a full day to empty the pantry of miscellaneous construction materials (ladders, spackle, paint, ect), unload the overstuffed kitchen cabinets and pack away the considerable excess. The washing machine was full of unwashed, dirty items. The dryer was full of wet things. None of the beds had been made. We rented for a full two months - February and March of 2010. We decided to leave a few days early, notified the owner and then were stunned to return from a medical appointment to find the maid preparing the place for new renters who were to arrive at three pm. We managed to get out but not without a very unpleasant run-in with the owner's son who saw nothing wrong in double booking the place. The owner then promised to refund us the money for our unused days (because she had double booked) but she never did. We'd been willing to overlook the condition of the place at the beginning and considered renting again in '11 but the incident over the double booking was so horrendous we were just glad to get out of there.
quiet, exclusive neighborhood inside the Grand Pavilion,
less than 2 small blocks to the ocean
