Just returned from a vacation on Kiawah Island, SC (near Charleston).  Like so many Avalon and Stone Harbor visitors, we are repeat tenants.  Returning to a familiar location is easy- you know the area and can immediate transition to “vacation mode”.

Renting in other beach communities provides an opportunity to experience the business from the other side of the counter…always a worthwhile perspective.

A few observations from this rental:

We selected a condo that had been recently renovated.  Tenants are naturally drawn to newer amenities and furnishings.

I appreciated that the kitchen supplies were in good shape- no one wants to use a rusty cookie sheet or an old frying pan.

There was a detailed welcome book with local information and services.  And, a laminated card under each TV remote with instructions, and the Wi-fi log in.

Only a few minor deficiencies:  No coffee mugs (only the small coffee cups that come with a set of dishes); and no table lamps (over head lighting throughout)- which made reading at night difficult.  Certainly nothing to ruin the week- but I did share my suggestions with the rental agency.

If I can help with your summer rental in Avalon or Stone Harbor, please let me know!
