My family and I have traveled to Edisto Island almost every summer since 1993; so, you can say we have a pretty good idea of vacation rentals at Edisto Island. Part of our family (4 people), our 2 small dogs, and a friend stayed at Sea Oats during August 2012. We were more than thrilled with our beach front location. If we could review our stay based on the location and deck alone it would be 5 stars, however, the old cottage house was not as pleasant. Even though the bathrooms were recently remodeled, we spent our first night at Sea Oats cleaning the entire house (vaccuming, dusting, everything...). It was hard to believe that Maintenance had left a note proving they had just tended to Sea Oats. The palmetto bugs were awful during our stay. Never have we encountered this huge of a bug problem; we actually had to buy pest products to minimize the multitude of roaches. Considering our problems consisted of maintenance issues, we wouldn't turn down Sea Oats to anyone, in the hopes that Edisto vacation rentals maintenance would consider spending more time and effort in preparing homes like Sea Oats. Sea Oats is a great home, it just needs a little bit more attention and care.

It's hard to find a house on the beach for 2 couples. This house was a great value even though it has 4 bedrooms and sleeps many more than we had. There have been upgrades to the countertops in the kithen and bathrooms/some applicances. It still has that old feel due to all the paneling on the walls. Bedrooms are very small and cramped due to the furniture. Dining room table is too big and takes up a lot of space. It was nice to be closer to the top of the island and the beach was literally right there when you stepped off the back deck (which has been upgraded and looks fantastic).
