The villa was beautiful and very well kept, the breakfasts and happy hours were perfect and the location was great (easy walking distance to town and beach). The staff was friendly and willing to help in any way. We plan to come... More

This was our second stay here and we were very impressed. The hospitality is second to none. Having a golf cart ride anywhere you want to go is great. Happy hour (3 hours long) cannot be beat! We will return.

The staff will take you anywhere on the beach in a golf cart, but most everything you need is within walking distance. Kelly Penick and her staff were awesome during our stay. I couldn't think of a better place to be for a long weekend. The happy hour and breakfast are awesome and a lot of fun. I would definitely... More

I truly appreciate the warm and inviting feeling that I had during my stay. From checking in, to checking out, one feels that you are their only customer. The two night stay is exactly what my wife and needed. I do agree with other comments, I wish I could have stayed longer. We have stayed twice now and intend on... More

Stayed in a villa with family and everyone had a blast. The four year old was entertained, the teenage girls were kept busy, and dad was still able to relax!!!

Nice room, amenities are enjoyable, quiet location in a busy beach community. Took full advantage of the hot tub, and happy hour was great. I gave it 4 stars, but would perhaps give it 5, except for the inconsistency in how the staff performed. I realize that "good help is hard to find" but some of the time during our... More

My husband booked our stay at this incredibly charming, romantic inn for the last night of our honeymoon after visiting downtown Charleston earlier that week. We loved the Water's Edge Inn from the moment we arrived! We were greeted with glasses of the delicious "World Famous Folly Punch" and freshly baked chocolate chip cookies.
