Our family loves Edisto and we have rented so many lovely homes from Edisto Realty but Egret's Flight was terrible. Let's begin with the fact that when we walked in 2 of the stove top burners were on and they scorched the knobs - they were lucky the house didn't catch fire. One of the burners on the stove did not work - toaster was broken- ice maker was also broken - the carpet was stained and overall disgusting - the counter top really needs to be replaced - it was covered in stains and almost impossible to clean. While they had some beautiful antique pieces of furniture in the bedrooms they were unusable since they were falling apart - the drawers and knobs were broken or missing. The coverlets on the beds were stained. The bathtub in the one upstairs bedroom had not been cleaned (had a ring around the tub). We also found that the kitchen lacked a working can opener (they had a handle held kind that didnt work and the electric one was hit or miss but mostly miss!). There were also little, to no serving pieces in the kitchen - most of our meals were served at the table in the pans from the stove. Oh, and if you are a wine drinker please be warned to bring your own glassware glasses for a house that sleeps 8 there were only 2 wine glasses. Really unacceptable.
Edisto Realty did bring us a new toaster and picked up one of the coverlets to have it cleaned but it never was returned. It would have been nice for the rental company to follow up with us later during our stay but we heard from no one after that first day.
I don't normally write these types of reviews but I wanted others to know. We looked high and low for one of those great comment books that every other place we have rented over 14+ years from going to Edisto but there was not one to be found. We are guessing perhaps the owners got tired of the honest reviews and removed the book.
We will continue to vacation at Edisto because this one terrible experience will not dampen the fun we have at the beach. Just want to warn others - Egret's Flight is not the place to stay.
