2 Stars is "Fair" and that is a fair rating for the property.
As others have noted this property has a ton of potential and I can imagine in its heyday was quite nice. Sadly it seems the owners are just milking it for rental value because many, many small things were amiss. The pool deck was quite uneven and sinking, the pool bar (which was a main reason for selecting this property) did not have a fan anymore or adequate lighting and the whole area was really broken down feeling. The main house was reasonably clean when we arrived, but still there are cracks in the grout, wonking door knobs, running toilets, etc. The kitchen and dining/den area are nice; but these days I would expect much better equipment for cooking with the house. If you plan to cook, survey the kitchen before you hit the grocery because you may need to pick up some utensils and I hate to say even an inexpensive pan, pot, or two. Really, there is no way the owner has cooked in this kitchen or it would not have warped pans and such. OK, so the positives - plenty of rooms and bathrooms. Nice family seating areas. Nice pool that we really enjoyed. The location is right near the beach too which is nice. We would not rent this place again unless we HAD to bring an animal because they did allow pets. We surveyed other potential spots for a return visit (Hilton Head is great) and there are better price to value, better kept properties to choose from (they just don't take pets). My advice to the owners, drop the cash to restore the property or your reviews like this will accumulate and rightly steer people away.
