Please do not afix balloons, banners or other 'party' signs to walls, cabinets or other structures. These will remove the paint. You will be charged for the cost to repair each item damaged. The cost to repaint a wall can easily be $250 alone.
According to Eric Benson, Ph.D. professor and extension entomologist at Clemson University “It has nothing to do with cleanliness or the economic conditions of the area,” said Benson. “They could be around the nicest home or the nicest hotel or resort.”
If you leave the doors or windows open, especially at night, you will likely see a few. This is perfectly normal. If you see 20 or 30 all in one place then please let us know. This might mean we have a nest somewhere in the home and we'll need to get pest control out to take care of it. This is extremely rare!
Please don't worry about bugs, enjoy your vacation. You'll likely not see any while you are here, we just include this note so you understand it's not unusual to see some and it doesn't mean the home isn't well looked after!

The modern garbage disposal has been a tremendous boon for homeowners and renters worldwide. It provides a quick and sanitary way to dispose of food waste, keeping trash bags lighter and landfills from overflowing. Because of their simplicity and solid construction, disposals are workhorses, potentially grinding away year after year. But even this venerable appliance can choke on certain items. Here are some things to never put in your disposal if you want to keep it running smooth and your drains clog-free.
Do not dispose of coffee grounds, bones, shells, pasta, oatmeal, nuts, onion, egg shells, fibrous vegetables, trash, pits, potato peel, corn husks and other tough items likely to cause a blockage.
In the event the disposal or kitchen sink plumbing is blocked due to material put down the disposal this is the responsibility of the guest. If a plumber has to be called then the guest will be charged $150 for that visit.
Our vacation homes are located in residential areas. We generally have great relations with our local neighbors and we want to keep it that way. Please pay particular attention to:
- No loud noises after 9pm. (Includes no Hot Tub use after 9pm)
- Only park in the designated areas (not on the landscaping)
- Do not roll out trash to the street, trash service will do this
- Do not hang beach towels over railings or leave beach gear outside
- On Kiawah island - Bikes must be in the garage (if there is access) or in a designated bike rack or out of sight of the road after dark.
- Beach Front Homes - TURTLE SEASON No lights visible from beach (May 1 to Oct 31)
The Cities will issue a ticket and a fine for these items.
We hope you have a great stay!

The pool service company will take care of this every week and they also balance the chemicals. We have a lot of storms which may change the appearance of the pool water in our pools - this is normal. The pool service company will be out to take care of it as soon as they can.
If you are using the hot tub, please rinse off all sunscreen and sand before entering the water. If the hot tub is left in a dirty condition your credit card will be charged $250 charge to have it pumped out, cleaned and rebalanced.
