Lovely! Casual! Cozy!
The stay was wonderful, and the house provided everything a group of four adults needed for relaxing, seeing the sights, getting to the beach, and enjoying a short getaway. The binder provided some good ideas for things to do (for those in the group inclined to get out past the beach), and the beach was a short walk away. Though I didn't make use of all of these, a few nice touches caught my eye, too: the wagon outside to help carry beach gear, a single bike for short trips, an outdoor shower that was every bit as warm and inviting (and bigger) than one of the indoor ones, a fan on the screened-in porch, a clothesline for helping to dry towels and other laundry, and a kitchen that had a good supply of plastic wrap, foil, and baggies (stuff you don't think you need until you don't have it!). The photos don't show the recently added second bathroom that's in the pink bathroom--it certainly is impressive to see a full bath in such a small space, and the fixtures and details are every bit as solid and thoughtful as what is provided elsewhere in the house. While you're on the island, you might eat at ACME Lowcountry kitchen--we did and loved it (twice in five days, in fact). Jeff, our server, was charming, patient, and thoughtful during our first visit, and the food was all the proof you need to convince landlocked midwesterners to give up eating seafood until they can enjoy the difference of what it means to get FRESH seafood that's locally sourced. We did learn the hard way that if you want to rent kayaks or stand-=up paddleboards, you need at least a 24-hour in advance reservation, so anyone looking to do more than laze about in a beach chair might want to put a little extra planning in. Likewise, we would have loved to try the Sea Turtle hospital tour at the aquarium, but it sells out just about every day, and we didn't make the reservation far enough in advance. I'd happily return to this cozy spot, and it looks like I still have more things to do so I'll definitely be trying to come back. Graeme was especially thoughtful and direct in helping me to plan my arrival and quick to reply to e-mail inquiries. Great service, Great space. .
