  • Christmas reunion

    5/5

    Our stay was lovely. They had the house decorated for Christmas which made our family exchange time even better. We lived being on the shoreline so we didn’t have to drive anywhere. We couldn’t have had a more enjoyable time.

  • Sewer Surfside

    1/5

    I wasn't going to leave a review but, then I don't want the next family to experience what we did. When we first arrived there was no running water to the toilets, sinks, or showers. I had to finally call Evolve who gave us another number to call and finally got a repair guy to come after a few hours to fix the clogged filters. We thought ok it was fixed no biggie but, then once fixed and for the rest of the stay every time the water was run it smelt like pure sewage. Imagine taking a shower after being at the beach all day and just a raw sewage smell in your nostrils your entire shower. The showers wouldn't drain so you also had a pool of water at your feet. The inside is very dated with rusted kitchen cabinets, holes some barely hanging from the hinges. We asked our neighbors if their water smelled and theirs didn't so can't just be all of Surfside. If you are charging almost $500 a night I would expect a lot better. We brought our own drinking water, Thank goodness because you don't want to brush your teeth with that water there. The beds were stiff and old, blankets and pillows were terrible. My entire family just felt dirty and stinky by the time we left. The owners did call after we had already left and left a message we could stay a night free because of the water. But to be frank we couldn't get out of there fast enough. If we didn't live 4 hours away we would have cancelled the day of the water incident. We have stayed in Surfside many times this is the first time we left with a terrible scent to remember. I would recommend a plumbing overhaul and major updates to the inside and out. Otherwise, charge what it's worth maybe 100-150 a night.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Dorothy, we're sorry that your stay fell short of expectations. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
    We sincerely apologize for any water issues you experienced during your stay. We take maintenance seriously, and as soon as you reported the problem, our maintenance person promptly addressed it by replacing a filter, identifying it as a potential source of the issue. While water filter changes are typically recommended every six months, this particular filter required replacement after only six weeks. We are also actively addressing the sediment in the water and have engaged with the relevant authorities to resolve this matter. Additionally, the shower drain issue has been successfully resolved. We want to clarify that the water's odor, which you mentioned, is a result of the beachfront location and is not related to sewage.
    Regarding the property's condition, we have recently updated everything, though rust on hinges is an issue due to the coastal environment. The beds and bedding are new, but we apologize if they didn't meet your preferences.
    Thank you for taking the time to share your review.

    Bill, we take guest feedback seriously and passed your comments on to the homeowner who would like to share the following:
    "Hi Bill, thanks for staying with us in Surfside Beach. We're disappointed to hear that your stay did not go as smoothly as we would have liked.
    -Regarding the lock, we have a Schlage lock installed that utilizes a number code to enter. We've never had issues with it and the lockbox is only to be used as a backup. If there was any trouble with the locks, we would have been more than happy to assist.
    -We're sorry if you were caught off guard by the water. This is a known issue when Surfside experiences heavy rainfall. For this reason, we ask our guests to bring their own drinking and cooking water and we supply a dispenser for variously sized jugs. When you notified us of this during your stay, my son promptly responded and we purchased chemically treated water filters to address it. I also reached out to our city water department who informed me that the cause was related to the merging of Freeport and Surfside Beach water. We are sorry if this disrupted your stay.
    -As for the essentials, we supply a starter kit for all our guests that consist of 3 rolls of toilet paper in each bathroom, 2 trash bags, and 3 paper towel rolls. This amount has always been enough for our guests and is the standard method for short-term vacation rentals.
    While we do regret our home was not up to your expectations, we truly go above and beyond for our guests, and we are confident that future guests will have excellent stays!"

  • 70th Birthday Getaway

    4/5

    We had a nice little getaway. The house was clean. A little small on the main level for our crew. Not enough seating. The house itself is very outdated. Most beds were comfortable, other than one of the beds in the master upstairs, bar in middle is uncomfortable to sleep in. Great location, walk to beach and close to restaurants. House manager was very accommodating, and would stay again if with a lighter crew.

    5/5

    The house worked for us. I loved the view of the ocean.We were however disappointed about the downstairs. The chairs were missing or turned over. We had promised the children scores. We managed a few (was windy) but could not sit around the fire pit.
