Nice location - floors and kitchen need an overhaul
Positive: Professional property management, Very nice location at the beach.
Negative: Many tiles on 1. floor were loose or broken. Dishwasher corroded, overall kitchen utensils need an upgrade, we were not made aware that the house is a double house. We found a cockroach in the bed room next to the kitchen.

October Girls Get-Away
We had a girls reunion with 12 family members. The space worked really well for us -- the table was large enough for all of us but (a pet peeve) we had to come up with two extra chairs for meals. Why don't rentals have enough seating at the table for the number of people the house will sleep?
The kitchen was surprisingly well stocked and well-organized. I really appreciate that. But, the kitchen sink looked like it had never been scrubbed and there was a constant drain "gurgle" -- like water was running all the time.
The living space was comfortable and though small for the number of bedrooms, we managed very well between games at the kitchen table and conversations in the sofa area and on the back deck.
The only real issue with cleanliness/upkeep was the ceiling/fan area in the great room. THe fan/pole extension was pretty much coated with grey/black mold -- and the ceiling was nasty. It was hard not to look at it once you noticed it. Yucky.
On a positive note, the sunsets are phenomenal and flocks(?) of orange migrating Gulf Frittilary butterflies covered bushes along the raised walkway to the beach. Every evening was spent on the deck, enjoying the delightful breeze. The weather was perfect and we had a wonderful time.

Hopefully we can make sure the butterflies are back next time!Regards,Atwood Vacations Team

Why do we pay extra to clean others dog hair.
The most dissapointing issue was the amount of dog hair in the house. We realize that it is "pet friendly" BUT, we payed EXTRA and thought that this was used for more extensive cleaning. Lot's of lights were out (no replacements for most of them)deadbolt handle kept falling off. Drains(2 tubs),full of hair. Lawn was high. It was obvious that this property had gone "down hill" from our stay last year.

Great week with the Fam,
We have been spending a week with our children and grandchildren for 17 of the past 18 years at Edisto. The grandchildren love going and although 2 of them are now college students they still manage their schedules to include this week. As the grandchildren have grown, we have adjusted our locations to accommodate their ages. I think this will be the most memorable activity of their childhood as they have families of their own.

Dolphin Watch Side A -
Wonderful house, great location. Had a very enjoyable week. The sofas in the main living area were not comfortable. Sat loe to the floor and were hard to get up and down. That is the only complaint. KUDOS for the beds, rooms, bathrooms,etc. Great Week. Enjoyed the location. Not crowded and no waves to knock you over. Great fishing.
Greensboro, NC, United States
we rented as suggested without "seeing" for our first visit (faminly wedding - McKelvey/Buckles) we had a great time - cottage could use some updates including master bedroom up - bathroom door did not work, drains were slow in sinks, toilet flush had to be held down; kitchen utensils could use "clean out & update"; otherwise great!

Dolphin Watch - Edisto
The home was nice, clean, comfortable and well-suited for a large family vacation. The location on the sound was great for small children due to the lack of waves and undertow. We had a great time in Edisto generally - if you are looking for a week to get away from the rat race, this is the place. We'll be back.
Augusta, GA, United States
We have stayed at this property for the last three years and will stay again next year. The property does need some maintenance but it isn't enough for us to not stay. There is plenty of room for our 12-14 guests who stay.

Great time! Very special being pet friendly. 2 labs loved it!
Great vacation! Pretty private! Pet friendly...two chocolate labs wore themselves out!
Christiansburg, VA, United States
Great place, perfect location
Every thing about the place was perfect except the refrigerator did not work. I put food in it the night we got there and it still wasn't cold when we left Sunday morning. Besides that everything was great.
great place for the price
Location is great. Main living area could use some updating / cosmetic fixes but the place is great for the price.

Pawley's Island, SC
what a GREAT place
We had a wonderful time staying at this property. It was nice to watch the dolphins and the sunsets were breath t*king.
Great layout, however the unit needed some TLC. Wallpaper was peeling, spider webs in high corners, toilets had to be plunged many times.

The house is beginning to show some age. Ceiling has water marks and wallpaper is beginning to come off.
Overall a nice place to stay. Would rent the property again.

Recently my famly of 11 stayed @ Dolphin Watch and loved it. This house was perfect for our group. We would definitely stay here again.

Nice place, good value
Dolphin Watch is a nice property. If you have modest expectations, the property will nicely exceed them, and you'll have a pleasant stay.
The public areas in the house (dining area, living area, and porch) are too small to comfortably accommodate parties of 12 people. If you bring kids, you will find they are constantly under your feet. The porch does not have a roof or ceiling, meaning the sun is quite strong all day, especially in the late afternoon. Although there is a little umbrella on the table, the porch is not really a place where you can spend much time until sunset.
The Master bedrooms are generous size, and the other rooms are fine, too. All the appliances and AC work just fine, we had no problems at all. The decor is nicer than you would expect in a beach house, just a little more elegant and sophisticated.
If you are familiar with Edisto, you know that there are no "beach front" homes. The dunes that separate the house from the beach are further than it seems. THat's OK with us because it protects the vegetation, etc., but you don't want to sherpa all your gear to the beach and then find out you forgot a bottle opener. You'll be glad if you bring a wheel barrow or cart.
It's not called Dolphin Watch for nothing. The dolphins go by very close all day long. There is plenty of other sea life to appreciate, too.
This is our 3rd year in this house. It has enough room for or family but needs some updates. The downstair rooms are updated, but new ceiling fans are needed. The air conditioner vent in the family room rattles very loudly and has each year we've stayed. THe blinds in the upstair bedrooms need to updated. THey keep no light out at all. Impossible to sleep in, which would be nice while you're on vacation. We will stay here because this house is near our friends, but I am interested in the other side of the duplex. Seems like the owners need to visit this place and make some updates.
Early summer at Dophin Watch A
The unit is perfect for the group we have. The location is great to watch the evening sunset.
Everything on this vacation was perfect. The condo was neat, clean, and perfect for our group. Beach was right there and being on the sound was way quieter than being on the ocean plus way more room to roam. A 12 out of 10.
The property was very clean and well cared for both inside and out. The decor is lovely and furnishings very comfortable. The location and view are to be envied especially for dolphin watching and georgious sunsets.
Dolphin Watch August 2009
The property is a great location and size for the group we had. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to rent again. More focus on the cleaning should be given. The banister was extremely dirty. The walls need a good cleaning or repainting. A leak under the sink had existed for quite a while and should have been noticed by the cleaning staff.
refrigerator has mold/mildew growing. We had to clean. Bathrooms dirty.Again, we had to clean. Floors dirty but not surprising as the sweeper had no suction. We tried to fix it and got tons of clogged filth out of it but it still didn't work. No blender pitcher. Refrigerator not cooling. Reported it Sunday but repairman never came. Shelving in freezer broken. Air conditioner didn't cool 2 of the upstairs bedrooms. Loved the location but house needs updates for price.
This is our second year at Dolphin Watch and we were pleased both times. I wish the owner would cut down the brush in front of the house. And the glass table in the family room is quite dangerous for kids. Other than that, we love the house and plan to stay there again next year.
