“Location, Location, Location!”
Reviewed 5 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Wave Watching is a lovely ocean front home. The location can not be beat! The house is situated pretty much in the center of the island so it is not too far to the sound and Bay Creek Park and not a long bike ride to groceries and restaurants. We spent hours on the wonderful porch overlooking the ocean. We enjoyed a tremendous live dolphin show when pods of dolphins cavorted right in front of our house, leaping high out of the water. The living room is comfortable with really nice furniture. There are two awesome recliners and two cushy leather couches. The beds are comfortable enough and have no awful sinky places in the mattresses. The upstairs bathrooms are very nice and have double basins in both of them. There is a good sized washer and dryer that both work well. Parking is fabulous! We had covered parking for both cars and plenty of room for bikes. If you have lots of cars there is lots of room and it's all paved. The outdoor showerhead located right at the beach is very handy. We used it everyday. The main living area is all tile floors. They are pretty easy to keep clean but they are really hard on bare feet. Bring some soft slip on shoes to wear in the house. Your feet will thank you. I gave it four stars instead of five for a couple of reasons. There are no screens on the windows. The house has wonderful big windows facing the ocean but you can't open them to get the benefit of the ocean breezes. We were there during love bug season and opening the windows without screens was not an option. Also, the kitchen could use some more pots and pans of various sizes. If there is something special you use at home and can't live without, bring it with you! I was glad I brought my own set of knives and measuring cups. The house is recommended for large groups but there were only 4 of us. The pots and pans were all super sized. The TV is very complicated with 3 remote controls. Fortunately this house is located right across the road from Edisto Realty, the rental agent for the property. They were very kind about sending over someone to help us get the TV working again. We called them twice. The last day of our vacation we just gave up and didn't watch TV. That was OK. The dolphins were much more entertaining than football. All in all, this is a really NICE vacation rental. It has some nice upgrades and I am thinking that there will probably be more improvements made in the future. We would happily come back and stay here again. I wish we could come TODAY!!

Thank you for a wonderful review of your Edisto Beach vacation. I agree with everything you said about the house - location, bedrooms. parking, beach access. What a grand experience to see a pod of dolphins right in front of the house. I will let the owners know about installing window screens and updating the kitchen inventory. Thank you also for the kind comments about our staff at Edisto Realty. We try hard to make sure all our guests have a wonderful stay. Please think of us again when it is time to plan your next visit to Edisto Beach.
