About Ellen Elleman

Why Ellen Elleman chose Charleston Area

The multitude of gathering spaces in this home, and the largess of the rooms is what attracted all of us to Sandy Shanty. We travel a lot together, often as a group of 8 when our daughters join us, and we appreciate the various areas available for people to gather. In this home one group can gather in the kitchen and listen to music while the meals are being prepared while another group gathers downstairs to watch TV or play games. If additional privacy is desired, there are porches all over the house, as well as the rooftop area which offers 360 degree views of the island, including the ocean!

What makes this house unique

Our goal is to make you feel welcomed and at home when you arrive at Sandy Shanty. To this end we offer concierge service that includes a cadre of people ready to help with anything you need. Prior to your arrival you will hear from Ellen, and the management company. Upon arrival you will be given additional contact information that may be helpful throughout your stay.

This was our first time to ever rent a house for vacation as we generally stay in hotels. Our trip to South Carolina was for our daughters wedding on the beach. I can't say enough good about this experience and we will definitely stay at this property again. The pictures do not do it justice! When we read the reviews prior to booking they were all really good except for a couple of people said the hot tub didn't work or they couldn't get it to work...I would like to say it is very easy, they have directions in the home directory as well as it was very simple to figure out without it. We loved it and used everyday! Beach access is great! Also before you go shopping for any kitchen items that you think you may need prior to arrival-Wait- because they have just about everything we needed in the kitchen other than food. It was very stocked with every gadget. I really can't say enough great things about this home and the staff it was AWESOME!

Great rental property - communication could be improved

  • 3 of 5

We rented this house for a business and golf trip. Plenty of room, plenty of space, great for entertaining. However since Wyndham Rentals is in charge of the rental place there was a huge communication breakdown. We called several days ahead of time to make sure the hot tub was on. One of the main reasons we rented the house was because it had a hot tub that did not require extra cost to heat. After calling they told us the hot tub would be on and of course we showed up and it wasn't. We called Wyndham who transferred us to 4 different people to figure out why it wasn't on. Eventually we found out that the hot tub runs on a 2 hour timer and so that couldn't be done. Thats not a big deal, but the communication on the front end would have been great. We were also put on hold several times to figure out how to turn the hot tub on. After finally being told vague instructions over the phone we called, emailed, and texted the owner to get better clarity, but she ignored all communication. Great house but terrible customer service and communication.

Perfect week!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed, along with 2 other families, in July of 2016. Whatever construction may have been going on in the neighborhood in prior reviews was completely finished. Our group totaled 16 and ranged in age from 13 to 77. There was never a point in the trip where we felt cramped in this home! It has a great open layout kitchen/great room area, and many other gathering areas throughout the home. The kitchen was well appointed, and we did cook most days. The elevator was a godsend for my friend's mom, who is 77 and had a little bit of difficulty with the stairs. We had no real issues operating the hot tub or the elevator. Of course, we had 10 tech savvy teenagers to help with that! : ) The photos of the home really do not do it justice. It is a beautiful home tucked away on a quiet cul-de-sac, just a short walk to the beach. It is not ocean front per se, but there is a deck on the top level where you can sit out and have coffee in the morning or wine in the evening and have a nice view of the ocean. Ellen was super helpful providing recommendations for restaurants and things to do in the area. It was a great vacation!

The house and location were perfect. Walking distance to beach. More importantly, Ellen was absolutely fabulous accommodating our party and was also quick to respond if we needed her.

Thanks for an amazing stay!!
