    This is a wonderful property. It was our 2nd time renting it this year because of the terrific location - just a short drive to Bluffton/ HHI & with a gorgeous river view. And it's located within a nice, quiet neighborhood too. This house has plenty of room for everyone, & it's just so comfortable that it's hard to describe really. My elderly father especially loves the enclosed porch & said that it will always be his 1st choice for a rental in future whenever we need to come back to the area. And I can't forget the owners & their kindness & hospitality. We haven't met them yet, but I must say that I spoke to one of the sweetest ladies in the world while arranging our visits. She couldn't have been any nicer. We certainly plan to stay here again.

    My family and I rented this property to see my son’s graduation from MCRD Parris Island. It was before the virus started in the US, but there was plenty of talk about it already. The property allowed us the ability to make a picnic lunch for family day... the only thing my son had asked for. There were plenty of amenities, a FULL kitchen, and a serene location. I’d rent there again in a heartbeat.

    Excellent option for local activities, including golf

    I have been organizing group vacations for years now using vrbo as often as possible, this will be my first ever review! 9 of us came down by boat from Charleston for the weekend. The house/yard/grill/dock/view/screened porch were everything we had hoped for! As we pulled up to the house we knew we had made the right decision. We spent the majority of our time outside enjoining everything this property has to offer and the sleeping accommodations were perfect for our group! throughout the planning, booking and checking in/out process I felt like I was communicating with my favorite relative! Betty Jane was so kind and sweet my only regret of the weekend was not having the opportunity to meet her in person! I hope to return to this beautiful riverfront home in the near future!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Chechessee River home. Everything was as we expected it to be and no disappointment. Everything very straight forward. We followed the instruction and had no issues. This is a very quiet and comfortable family home and area for relaxing and fellowship with family and neighbors. You are 20-30 min to Hilton Head or Beaufort and great restaurants. Even better, you can also buy local and cook it at home. Best is go down to the river and catch it yourself!

    This was the best experience we could have hoped for on this trip to get our new Marine. The property was beautiful with everything we needed on site or a short drive away to the local fast station or Walmart. We enjoyed swimming off the boat dock & sitting under the covered gazebo overlooking the water. We saw dolphins & stingrays swim by & even saw a bald eagle. It was a simple & short (20 min) drive to Parris Island. The son’s property owner greeted us, gave us lots of great information on the area & crab trapping, & even showed us how to cook the crab we caught. This could not have been a better trip. We will be going back here for a visit

    Our stay and accommodations were exactly what we expected and more! We found the house to be clean and completely equipped to handle all aspects of our stay. Spacious and well appointed, we utilized almost all the rental had to offer (Kitchen, with great appliances; the gas grill; the dock; the fire pit and the wonderful porch with bar! The bedrooms handled our 9 guests with ease and the views of the river, both sunrise and moon rise are spectacular. We also bought seafood at Lemon Island Seafood and it is a close location with great choices and prices. My mother, who grew up close by in Ridgeland and spent a great deal of time on the Chechessee felt right at home. We will definitely be coming back to this property for our visits.

    We stayed for our son's graduation from MCRD Parris Island. The house is about 20 minutes from the base. It is very easy to get back and forth to the base from the house with a very nice ride. The house itself was very roomy since there were 8 of us and we all came from 3 different states. The kitchen is equip with all the necessities you could need to prepare meals. The screened in porch was great place to sit and chat with family. The view from all rooms is great. My favorite space was the kitchen table with the bay window and enjoyed my coffee there every morning we were there.The kids are all adults and enjoyed the docks to sit and catch up with each other. It is a very homey and comfortable home away from home. The owner is very polite and quick to respond to any needs. I would recommend this house to any staying with multiple family members. I can't wait for the opportunity to go again!!

    Great property and view. Amazing Sun rises. 4 bedroom house with all the amenities you could ask for cable, internet, WiFi, central heating and air, fully functional kitchen, and washing machine and dryer. Great to sit out on the screened in porch or the observation deck over the marsh. In the warmer months the covered dock has to be a great hang out place. You can't beat the price. VERY affordable. I will stay there over and over for years to come.

    Wonderful View and Porch, other than that....

    The house is badly in need of a very deep clean and new carpeting. The carpets in every room are stained and the upstairs carpet appears to be from the year the house was built, 1983. One of our party was wearing white socks while walking around, it was very obvious just how dirty the carpets are from what was on her socks. The bathrooms are moldy and there is duct tape on the upstairs tub faucet. As soon as you open the door overwhelming musty smell hits you. We likely would have not stayed except for the fabulous view and screened porch.

    Love it!

    My November stay was the second time this year. It is like home for me. The spacious house is nestled under a beautiful canopy of very large oak trees. Add the view of the river and you have a wonderful relaxing stay. The house is well taken care of and more than adequately furnished for a vacation home. I stay here for a week at least one time a year and highly recommend it.

    Our family really enjoyed staying at this property. The outdoor space is very nice. The backyard is shaded with large beautiful trees. We enjoyed spending time on the dock watching the dolphins swimming in the canal. It was a really great get away for the family to be able to spend quite, quality time together. We were there during the 4th of July and the fireworks were amazing! The neighbors were very friendly and had children our daughter could play with. Mrs. Brown was such a delight to work with when we were scheduling our stay as well. She made the entire process a great one! We will stay again!

    I have stayed here twice once with several couples for a birthday weekend and then last summer for a family vacation. The home was very comfortable for four couples and for our family of 6. There was plenty of room for family time and it has very nice individual porches for personal/quit time. Our son-in-law and grandson loved the dock and verity of fish they caught. Our 2 year old granddaughter loved the screen porch. The kitchen was stocked with nice pots, pans and dishes. The owners were easy to deal with and the neighborhood was friendly and we felt safe. We will be going back next summer.

    Great view, good option for family vacations!
