My Fall Beach Getaway
Melanie S. from Sally, SC recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in October, 2014
I was amazed at the wonderful weather I had, and being oceanfront was a bonus. The roll of the waves sung me to sleep each night. We could leave the door open to the deck and get a breeze at all times. The store was in easy walking distance. The fact that I could bring my 2 dogs to such a wonderful spot was a big plus. I loved the easy to care for tile flooring in the kitchen/ living area.

A Shore Thing
A guest from Summerton, SC recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2014
We really enjoyed our short vacation at Edisto Beach. Our house was in an excellent location so we could view the ocean at any time. The house was clean and well-maintained. At high tide the waves came all the way up to the house. The only problem we had were some sand fleas we discovered after our last afternoon walk on the beach. I would recommend this house to anyone who wanted to stay on the beachfront.

September Rental
Carol B. from Cleveland, GA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 4 days in September, 2014
The location was great. The layout of the house was also very good, but the house was definitely showing its age. Good points were location, layout, back deck and access to beach. I would not recommend this particular property unless repairs were made and appliances replaced. During our stay, the hot water heater leaked through one of the bedroom ceilings, causing the ceiling to collapse.

A Shore Thing
Brittany C. from Corinch, MS recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014
The house was nice enough, however the beds were horribly uncomfortable. The house's location was perfect! Beautiful area and great town! We wished the swing had been at a height so that we could actually use it. It was a tease. Also, we were not given enough towels. You shouldn't have to pay for extra.

Wonderful Vacation
A guest from Mount Juliet, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 8 days in May, 2014
Great location. Great view. Loved the back deck looking out to the ocean. Part is shaded and part in the sun which was good for the view and for reading in peace. We like to cook while we vacation and the kitchen was well equipped. Grocery store right across the street. Plenty of room for my husband and I and our teenagers. Lots of seating. Washer and dryer worked well. Easy late check in and easy check out. Will stay there again.

Weeekend Mini Reunion/Birthday
Robert S. from Monticello, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in November, 2013
This was our first trip to Edisto. We loved laid back vibe of the island and the locals were very friendly.A Shore Thing is a very nice house extremely convenient to shopping as it is right on Palmetto just past the first curve.For being right on the street, it is amazingly quiet! It is also pet friendly! Once off the front porch and in the house, all you hear is the crashing of the waves out back. When they say beachfront,they mean beach front!At high tide the house is literally feet from the water.The property was spotless and the only fault we could find was there was no gas grill and the old Weber charcoal grill was in horrible shape and missing parts. If you're looking for convenience and don't mind being close to the street, A Shore Thing is the place for you. P.S.--(Bring your own drinking water,..R/O water systems are great for bathing/washing, but not much for consumption) We will definitely return to Edisto Beach next year. Thanks Atwood for a great weekend!

A Shore Thing
A guest from Gaithersburg, MD recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in October, 2013
If you want ocean front, this is it! At high tide the water is actually up to/under the deck. That does leave small beach area, but as soon as the tide goes out it's fine. The gas grill was in appalling condition, but there was a small charcoal grill you could use. The house was very nice, just the right size. We would definitely stay there again.

It's NOT a Shore thing
A guest from Watkinsville, GA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 5 days in September, 2013
Boards falling off the house, no lock on the sliding back door, roof of the covering on the back deck falling in, worn out and weather-flithy furniture in the "game room," roaches in the house, and more: this property should not have been rented. We were told of none of these problems when we rented it, and yet when I complained, someone from the rental agency said they knew there were problems but hadn't been able to get into it to see what all they were. Then they apologized. But they knew all this before they rented it to me! And it was for a wedding anniversary! If and when it is completely renovated, it could be nice. But not now.

Great Spot @ Edisto
Jodi N. from St. Matthews, SC recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013
We loved it, beach front, walking distance to all the stores, what we didn't like was the outside shower NEEDS alot of work(we had to use the water hose to rinse off), the beach view balcony isn't safe for children alone (some of the boards aren't even attached),the stove surface hot light is always on, and the swing down stairs isn't hanging, its broken off. Other than those details the location and view are wonderful. We would stay here again even with the problems.

Great Getaway
ANTHONY A. from PALM CITY, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013
I had a wonderful experience at Edisto and would do it again. The location is excellent and the area is just conducive to relaxing. The house was very accommodating for my family and had all the needed amenities. Things that would have made the place even better: I would have liked to have had better light blocking blinds in the rooms facing the ocean and sunrise, so I could sleep in later. The hot water heater is set too high for kids as you could easily scald yourself. The washing machine water lines are reversed, but this is an easy fix; but just know not to take a shower while the machine is running or even shortly after as there will be no hot water.

This house has a great layout and the rooms are spacious. The kitchen has everything needed. However, the dining chairs and living area seating are just plain worn out.

Beautiful Beach!
Jack and Debra C. from Uniontown, OH does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2012
After staying in multiple locations along the coast, this is the most beautiful beach we have been to. Millions of seashells and clean sand. The house, not so much. It was surface clean. It was the deeper cleaning that was much in need such as cabinet handles, sides of the refrigerator, trash can, counter top appliances. The sofa, loveseat and chair were filthy and you sank to the bottom on the sofa. We had extra linens, so we covered them otherwise we would have been out shopping for something to put on them; they were disgusting. The bedrooms were clean and nice and for the most part, so were the bathrooms. There was painting that needed done. The porch was missing spindles making it very dangerous with the large opening in 4 places. Also some of the spindles were loose only on the bottom, so if they were pushed against, they gave out. I called the company on Monday and they said someone would be out on Monday afternoon or Tuesday. No one ever showed up.The spindles that were missing were sitting in the sand below. We took nylon rope and put it along the spindles crossing it where there were large spaces and securing the loose ones. I saw that someone had mentioned this problem in an earlier review, but I thought the problem would have been fixed by now. The city water is salty. They said it is safe to drink, but yeach! We bought water to drink and I also used it to wash my hair. If you had containers, you could get free water at the town hall. The salty water caused issues with the appearances of anything that the water touched, but I can't blame the company for that, but it was still disgusting. It is an old island and so as I talked to others, most of the houses appeared dilapidated. As far as restuarants, try them all even if your not sure by the outside appearance. We ate a lot of very good food. Be sure to try the Sea Cow! Their desserts are great!

The spindles were repaired after your visit. A call was placed to the house for a follow up. New appliances are scheduled to be installed in the winter of 2013. We hope that you will continue to visit Edisto and stay with Atwood.Regards,Atwood Vacations Team

The bathroom on the left needs a new shower curtain liner. The shower on the right has a good bit of water damage around the tub. The recliner sofa (not the sleeper sofa) appears to be broken. The stove top always looks like it is "on" and some of the eyes don't connect properly.

We really enjoyed our stay at Shore Thing. It's proximity to the beach and to the state park were definite pluses. There was a leak dripping in the carport from one of the bathrooms above but the rental company quickly had it addressed. The house was clean and the beds were comfy. We will be back!

Great location...bummed we didn't get to stay.
Christy B. from Concord, NC recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2012
This is the best location on the beach if you like to walk everywhere! Walking distance to several restaurants, shops and grocery store. The house is directly on the beach so no walk over the dunes. Very convenient if you have kids :) the only reason I didn't give 5 stars across the board is because a water pipe burst in the middle of the night and flooded the entire left side of the home. We had to wake the kids and move to another home. The property management was very professional and helpful with the move down the beach. Luckily, there was another comparable home available ocean front that we ended up staying the remainder of our stay. I would stay here again and will be renting from Atwood Vacations again for sure! I highly recommend them.

My husband passed away in May 2011. My family and myself did not want to stay home for Christmas. This house felt like being home. The kitchen was perfect and had all the conveniences of home.

Stayed for 7 days in August, 2011
This is the second year staying at this house and we hope to stay many more. It is a great property with a great location and view. I wish some of the back deck boards would be replaced and the furniture be a little updated. It's nice but a little worn in and uncomfortable. Other than that we have had a great experience both times. Also Atwood Vacations are great to work with and so friendly.

Review of "A Shore Thing"
Mark and Trish E. from Cedar Bluff, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2011
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the beach. A Shore Thing was immaculately clean (kudos to your cleaning staff). We did our best to leave it very tidy and ready for them to do general cleaning for the next stay. There were only a couple of problems with the property and one of those is truly a safety issue. First the non-safety issue. The desk chair in the family room is broken. Someone had to sit at the desk most of the time so we could all have seating in the family room and we had to place the desk chair against the desk to keep it from falling backwards. From the appearance I would guess that someone leaned back too far in the chair and broke it. It was that way when we arrived. I was the first person to sit in it and when I leaned back I almost hit the floor.The safety issue is with the spacing of the rails on the deck facing the ocean. We had our granddaughter with us. She is 19 months old and we had to stand in front of her at all times when on the deck because the railings are spaced too far apart and she could have fallen through. At one point she reached to put her hand on one of the rails, missed it and her body started going sideways between two rails. Also, one of the railings was missing and had not been replaced. Instead, a plastic outdoor side table had been set in front of the large hole (an open space over a foot wide. Not a good idea at all since our granddaughter could have easily picked up that lightweight table herself. We ended up moving rocking chairs against the railings to keep her away from them. It made for a not so comfortable and enjoyable time on the deck with the family since we could not allow her to be up playing without someone beside her at all times. The spacing for the rails do not meet code and the missing rail really needs to be replaced before a child falls through. We didn't even notice it was missing until about the second day ourselves. Not complaining, just informing. We had an absolute

A Shore Thing Located at Edisto Beach, SC
Tammy J. from Windsor, SC recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2011
The house was for the most part clean, however our sheets for 2 of the beds had a few stains on them. One of the bed comforters (the bedroom my husband and I slept on) actually looked as though it had a few blood stains on it, so we didn't use it) Also, once again the air conditioning wasn't working when we got there and we had a 5 wk old baby w/us this year so it was very hot. We had issues w/the air last year as well. Lastly, the porch deck on the beach side is missing a post, which makes a VERY wide gap. I have a 2 yr old and I just happened to see it when he was only a few ft away from it while we were on the deck. If I hadn't, he could've fallen through it because it was that wide of a gap. For safety purposes this needs to be fixed. We still like this house so I am not giving a bad rating, it's just that these are things that I felt needed to be brought to your attention so that you can let the owners know. They may need to invest in a NEW air conditioner and PLEASE FIX THE POST ON THE BEACH SIDE DECK. Thank you, Tammy Jackson

Wow! What a great time we had in Edisto Island. The house was clean, prepared, and fully equipped in the kitchen! The only complaint was the towels provided were inadequate (too thin and small) so next time we'll take our own bath towels. However, the house is in great shape! There is ample room and our grandchildren loved having a tv in every bedroom! We so enjoyed the porches - both the front toward the beach and the screened-in porch for barbequing! We'll be back!

Overall, we were very satisfied with our stay. I knew it was an older unit, so, the general condition of property was good. I mean the bathrooms were dated, but we would certainly come back to it again. The one thing that I didn't care for was the 'envelope' left for us from the cleaning service. I mean, standard cleaning practices are included in the rental price and if the people who rented the property prior to us left it a mess, then monies should comes out of their deposit money, don't ask me for a tip because I found the property clean, and we always leave a property cleaned and usually vacuumed.I have rented many homes, and this is the first time I have come across this.I did not mean to insult the cleaning service, but I do expect a property to be clean when we arrive. Again, we would not hesitate to return to A Shore Thing.

The kitchen is not as well stocked with supplies as other houses I have stayed in on Edisto; but the most annoying part was that the dvd player did not work, nor did one of the bedroom tvs, and I called 3 times to get someone over. Nobody showed up, despite having talked to a live-person who said he would be over within the hour.

The air conditioner didn't seem to cool as much as it should on a couple of the days, and also their were sea shells on 1 of the beds. There was a broken rocking chair on the back porch when we got there, and the door handle to the sliding glass door was broken off and what was left was very loose. We had to open and close the door by placing our hand on the glass itself and pushing it. Other than those few things......we had a GREAT stay!!!!! We booked again for next year!!! :)

We have stayed in this house 2 years now and love it. It is perfect for our small group of 6-8. The location is wonderful for getting to the grocery and convenience store by bike, etc. I wish the pier was better. We were told by the owners that it was going to be extended 2 years ago and were disappointed when we arrived to find the little short pier still there (you sure can't fish from that). We are so close to the beach, it is great.
