Beautiful place! Close to everything! Very relaxing! Good food, great staff, friendly and caring owner. As a brand marketer, I'd say they understand the pittance of the customer experience. We'll go back again.

Our 4 night stay from 9/4 to 9/7/12 was nice. We stayed in the Hemingway room on the second floor. Note for those with physical limitations, because the building is raised, you need to climb two flights of stairs. The beds were especially comfortable. We had an issue with a non-working mini fridge that they addressed fast. I do think that someone should have figured out that the drains in the bathroom sink run "slow" though and the the carpet was stained, like it could use a cleaning. The A/C can't be controlled by you in your room so you have to manipulate the ceiling vent which is a pain. The porch has nice looking furniture but you'll find that the cushions are poor and should be replaced. For those reasons, I gave a rooms a 2 star rating.The breakfast was very nice affording one a great selection of hot and cold foods and the afternoon wine, beer and munchies were great. The beach is walkable but they will gladly golf cart you over and take you back too. The manager and staff are extremely nice and work hard to make you feel welcome. I suggest that you bring mosquito spay if you plan to be out at night. On the whole, I would recommend this place.

Room Tip: The Hemingway offers a nice view of the wetlands out to the water with the boats and the room is a c...

We booked our wedding using the Inn's Elopement Package, though we had 20 other people on the beach with us. Water's Edge made everything simple and relaxing which was exactly what we were looking for. The staff was friendly and helpful, rooms and villas were lovely. The best part was the short walk or golf cart ride to the beach. We'd recommend staying here to everyone.

Far and away, this is the best place to stay while visiting Charleston. Rooms are wonderfully appointed, and the beds are amazingly comfortable. My wife and I stayed hear over three years ago for our honeymoon, and the only thing that has changed is the quality of the breakfast (We miss the French toast casserole-dish!). Regardless, we will stay no other place should we get to visit to low-country once more.

I really needed a totally "chill" get away and this was it. Arriving at the exact moment that the cocktail hour began I was handed a "folly punch" and I was off and running. Everything in the operation of the inn is completely directed toward customer satisfaction and the staff, who are all absolutely wonderful, will go out of there way, and do anything they possibly can to make your stay enjoyable and effortless. I was thinking about bringing in food, one evening, instead of going out to a restaurant and Marie even told me that she'd go and pick it up for me! The room was large, clean, very well appointed and comfortable. I loved the "white noise" and slept like a baby to the barely audible sound of gently rolling waves every night! The breakfast buffet is very nice and there was plenty to choose from. I will definitely be back the next time that I need to get away for a few days of de-stressing!

yes, we have stayed at this inn 6 times since we first discovered it. we do enjoy the inn but more importantly we enjoy the staff and how we are treated as a guest; without this high level of customer service we surely would have sought somewhere else to stay. before we discovered this inn we had never stayed anywhere other than a hotel and were unsure about this whole B&B atmosphere but this inn is more like a small, quaint and personable hotel with only a small amount of guest that add to the relax atmosphere we seek when we go on vacation. we strongly recommend you giving the inn a try.

Beautiful rooms - clean, welcoming. Staff was friendly and helpful with every detail. Breakfast and Happy Hour were wonderful! We were there for three nights and would definitely return. Many thanks to the friendly faces at the front desk and everyone behind the scenes. Beach was terrific, too.
