Check in and front desk were pleasant and professional. Did not go to a presentation and was not pressured to do so. Room 671A in the Villages was on the third level, so some huffing and puffing. Cleaning was good, with the bathroom spotless. The room was attractively decorated, only starting to show some age, except for the carpeting which was stained and needs to be replaced. It had the loudest garbage disposal I have ever heard. Thought it might take off. The toilet paper wasn't very soft, as is usual with Wyndhams. The facial tissue was brutal, but on the up side I was able to file my nails with it.

My husband and I spent some much needed time relaxing and getting away from the busyness of "real" life. Wyndham Ocean Ridge met our expectations for a get-a-way. Live Oaks filled with Spanish Moss lined the winding streets. The resort is beautifully landscaped with many lagoons and ponds. We viewed fish jumping, egrets and herons stalking, turtles swimming, and (only one time) a small alligator.

We enjoyed the spaciousness of our first floor condo and especially the screened-in porch. Our kitchen was adequate in size and equipped with almost anything you might need to use. We were thankful for the reverse osmosis unit attached to our sink. It made drinking the water possible. The washer and dryer were large and cleaned/dried wonderfully. Our master bedroom was large and the king-sized bed was extremely comfortable. The master bath was adequate with a shower/bath and single sink. The guest bedroom had two full-sized beds, and its bath was also adequate with a shower/bath and single sink. The living/dining area was spacious and quite comfortable. There were televisions in both bedrooms as well as the living area. Our unit was a 5 - minute walk to the beach on the sound.

We were never physically on the beach, but the sound was pristine and gave us the feeling of being on "Gilligan's Island." As nature lovers, we were soon able to forget our worries and cares on our own little bit of paradise. Each morning, we were on the beach before sunrise to collect shells and to take pictures of the sunrise. We also tried to be on the sound (near Bay Point) before sunset to watch the dolphins playing. We were not disappointed. We saw dolphins each time we went, and the sunsets were BEAUTIFUL!

During our stay at Wyndham, we enjoyed water aerobics, playing minature golf, playing pool, and riding the bicycles. The staff was very pleasant.

We spent one day sight-seeing in Charleston which was 1 1/2 hours away. Wyndham offers a tour of Charleston and surrounding plantations, but we decided to head out on our own. The Welcome Center in Charleston was able to make any arrangements that we needed for tickets for tours and cruises. We ate lunch at the world famous Hymans which was WONDERFUL!

We spent one day at Botany Bay Plantation. The driving tour gave a little bit of the history of the plantation, but the beach experience was the best part for us. The beach was as though walking back in time a hundred years ago. It is covered by shells, however, collecting them is only allowed by children under the age of twelve. The walk to the beach was on a causeway through the tidal marsh. We went after high tide and saw many birds, crabs, and butterflies. The tidal creek had oysters that would spout like little geysers after they were exposed by the receeding tide.

Wyndham is a large resort with both timeshares and rentals. Refurbishing of some units were taking place, but the noise did not affect us because we did not stay in that area.

We booked our rental through Natalie who was very helpful and sensitive to our needs. Our unit was everything that she said it would be.

We hope to return and will only book through Natalie!

Restaurants we enjoyed:

The Plantation Grill
The Waterfront
The Pavillion
Buck's Pizza

We stayed at the Wyndham Resort, which was about what one would expect for time share condos, except for the fact that we had no bath linens and had to call twice to get them. We took a tour of the ACE River Basin to see the river dolphins and it was well worth the cost. Day trips to Charleston and Beaufort are a great way to see beautiful homes, experience history, and eat some great food. Highpoints on Edisto island itself include the Pink Van Tour, the Gullah Food restaurant (where the tour departs and returns) and the Nature Conservation drive/trail. Probably the best food we had on the island itself was at the Old Post Office; the roasted scallops were awesome!

We stayed in a 4 bedroom Presidential unit at Southpoint. Checkin was smooth & friendly. I was nervous having read so many negative reviews but we had points that had to be used and love the beaches of South Carolina so we took a chance. Here are the pros & cons: PRO: The beaches are absolutely beautiful...dolphins swim right by and it is pristine. Highly recommend going down to the beach at night - the most beautiful display of stars & moonlight on the water. In the early morning, you can see deer tracks & turtle tracks on your morning beach walk. The island was deserted - like your own private retreat! I cannot say enough about the beaches! CON: The island is very secluded - at the end of a 26 mile 2 lane road through SC country. There is only one small grocery store on the island - can't imagine how crowded that must be in the summer. The unit we stayed in was huge - 3 floors plus lower level garage. The unit itself seemed fairly clean but the furnishings, while of good quality, were dented, banged up & extremely dirty. I was reluctant to actually sit on the couch. The kichen was well equipped with dishes for 14 but the water is TERRIBLE (inside of dishwasher just eaten away from the water...) The mattresses we slept on were very uncomfortable in that they were like marshmellows - way too soft, and the bed linens were of very poor quality. I would bring my own if I return. The unit itself had a musty odor throughout....which actually came home with us on our clothing. Probably can't be helped as you are on an island. All in all, I would definitely return to stay in Southpoint using points. (can't speak for other parts of the resort) I don't think I would pay to stay there though - would rent a house. It was one of the most relaxing vacations we've had...
