Why Captain Rachel chose Charleston Area

This house is with in 300 ft to the Beach The House was built with heart of pine floors and beams..The floor level no elevated stairs in front but stairs inside this home make it so much easier .# 1 place #1 Beach #1 City because 40ft restrictions on height on the island makes this feel like Mayberry Small Town it's a Family Beach.

Disappointing

  • 1 of 5

We have not received our security deposit for our stay in September 2015. I have talked to the Owner on at least 3 occasions last year giving her our address 2 times and still have not received our deposit, as promised. We left the property cleaner than when we arrived. There was a problem with the master bed. The mattress apparently did not fit and was so noisy that one could not get a good night's sleep. The house could use an exterminator inside and outside. We have stayed at numerous locations on the Isle of Palms over the last 15 years using VRBO and others and did not have any of these problems.

confusing description and not exactly as promised

  • 3 of 5

The description is somewhat too detailed and confusing, so we had one less bedroom than we anticipated. Daybed on the porch is really small with no curtains on the window. Not a suitable bedroom at all. The queen sized sofa bed in the apartment downstairs was old, saggy and uncomfortable. The kitchen is very small and not as described. Cooking for the 12 we had was a challenge. There is no table that seated all of us at once, which was disappointing. The yard was overgrown and full of mosquitos - didn't try to use the hot tub. There is a picture of a bedroom with wicker furniture that we never saw. The downstairs screened in porch is full of old furniture that was not at all an inviting place to sit. The one sitting area is ok. but again, not big enough for the 12 people this place advertised as being able to accomodate. Having said all that, if your family is smaller and doesn't need either the daybed or the queen sleeper, there are some positive points to the house - it was clean and it is an easy walk to the beach.

Great Location at a Great Price

  • 4 of 5

Just stayed with my hubby at the apartment to the side. My daughter/son-in-law and their 4 kids stayed in the big house side. We had a great time. The house worked out great. We were all together yet still had our privacy. The location is great. A short very pleasant walk to the beach. The cul-de-sac location was perfect and away from busy streets. There were beautiful red birds all around the house and we had everything we needed. Thanks Captain Rachel for a great stay!

I also have alot of request for months of rentals all times of the year...I understand it is hard to get short term to build a house or get away from winter months...Everyone should live at the beach at one time or another.. the Captain
