  • Farewell trip


    I booked the home as a farewell trip for my brother he’s in the navy and going over seas. Neighborhood was a lil off but it wasn’t anything we weren’t used to. The house is at the end of the road fenced in and private. Once we parked and got out we went inside and looked around, everything looked nice and clean, found our beds and took our stuff inside. My mom noticed a book sitting on the table and started reading it and was shocked to read that someone was living with us but we never heard anything or saw anyone not once. They may not have been there or were just extra quiet, either way it didn’t stop us from having a good time. Extra beds came in handy for if we didn’t want to sleep in the beds. The only other thing we didn’t like was the floors upstairs they need to be replace asap the room I was in with my kids the floor sinks in some spots and is to high in other. Other than that the house was perfect, definitely would book again if we ever go back to Charleston.

  • Experience of a Lifetime!


    The house is huge, very accommodating. At first we were hesitant because the house is slightly remote, but once we got there, we were happy to be able to have plenty of parking space, the rooms were clean, the kitchen was full of appliances, the bathrooms and showers were spacious, plenty of soap and toiletries. The bedrooms were very clean and accommodating, the sheets adequate, plenty of towers and bath items, including shampoo and conditioner, everything that's required. This was our family reunion, and the house easily accommodated five families, and also had room for different pull out sofas and pull out beds to accommodate even more. In fact, due to this remote location we were able to host over a hundred family members at one time, without being disturbing to any neighbors and everyone had a fantastic time. We were able to use the grills, the fire pits, each and every aspect of this property was made possible due to the fact of it's vastness, it's location, and cleanliness. Without a doubt, we will rent this property again at our next family reunion.

    I have to say pulling down the road looked a little sketchy, but the house is at the end of the road sits by itself and the inside was lovely. The only complaint I have is that the alarm went off every time the maintenance man that lived on the property left the house in the morning early. It was very loud and woke me up every day, but it is close to the beach which was very convenient and it sleeps several people and we had a large crowd so it was perfect. Definitely would stay there again. Yeah, and I was very friendly when one of the children touched the alarm and we got in touch with him to make sure everything was OK

  • The Sol Legre! James Island, South Carolina 2022


    It was a Great Time and a Sol Legre Experience Never to forget! My daughters took 4th Place at NYAA Nationals in Myrtle Beach, SC for Champion Force Cheer and we came here to celebrate and the house and Location was Perfect. The Central Air worked great. Plenty of room for our large group of family. Area for the kids & the adults to hang! After having Soaked up all the Sun and fun for 4 days we forgot a sweatshirt bought from folly beach...No Worries we contacted the property owner and worked it out!! We would definitely come back and stay again. Until the next time!

  • Did it’s job, but wouldn’t book again.


    The house did its job. Our entire family stayed here for a Navy event. We all fit & no one was on top of each other. The yard was nice & allowed the kids a good space to run around and play. The patio tables & outdoor grilling area were great & we took advantage of both since the weather was nice. As far as cleanliness, it’s rough. The house definitely needs more attention paid to it, not to mention we’re pretty sure there’s no way it would pass on electrical code with the cords/wires running everywhere. So all in all, it did it’s job. We were all able to stay under one roof together. But we wouldn’t book again.
