About this Property

The "Bird's Eye View" from this condo is not like any other in our complex! Sit on the private porch outdoor your door and watch the pool, the passersby on Pavilion Drive on their way to the beach, the cars driving along Sea Blvd....all while listening to the music that might be playing at Coconut Joe's or the laughter of children having fun in the pool. It is a favorite of families who want to keep an eye on things but also of couples, friends, or singles who just want to bask in the beach's balmy winds.

This condo has two entrances - one with the porch (by way of the steps on the other side of the building) and the other with a set of stairs by the pool area that has a landing and entry area. The entryway is used by housekeeping so you may want to keep your door closed - it is not meant for guest storage but you may leave your shoes and beach gear in this area.

When you take the entrance by the pool, you walk into the radiant cheery condo and the bathroom is right there on the left. PERFECT for coming in from the pool or the beach to use facilities without walking through the whole condo. Step down to the open living and dining area that is flooded with natural light from the 5 windows in the room.

The kitchen reminds me of a European style - compact but not too tight, and great use of space. It is actually elevated 3 steps - a throwback from the original building design from "way back" when the original footprint of the building was not only elsewhere on the island, it was much smaller than it is today. (There is history here....we'll be thrilled to tell you about it during your stay!) The kitchen has everything visitors need to prepare meals - oven, stove, pots, pans, dish- and drink-ware, etc. Coffee maker, toaster, and various accessories such as trays are also here for visitors to use. There is no dishwasher but we give plenty of towels so you can wash your own. Or better yet....eat out....

The living space has a new queen couch-bed and a TV with cable. There is a dining table right beside the window so whoever is working a crossword puzzle can also keep an eye on the teens by the pool. Pull the table out for more space around it - add additional seats that can be found in the bedroom closet.

The bedroom has a queen bed and TV. There is closet space for guest belongings.

One thing to note (again) is the location of the bathroom. It is not attached to the bedroom. This is a consideration in terms of access when visitors will be using the couch bed. Guests in the bedroom need not be disturbed by those passing through to use the facilities. And, showering at any time need not be a disturbance to others in the condo.

On the Sea Inn unit you will find a pool and two grille areas for use by owners and visitors, fee parking, and shared laundry facilities just steps away. (You will need quarters - we'll remind you of that before you get here.)

Some of our units have "minimum nights mandatory" to make a reservation on weekends, holidays, and during the summer season. To check availability for a shorter stay, please send a message / inquiry. If it's possible, we'd be delighted to accommodate you.

Waterview Unit Management, LLC manages this holiday rental. This may be described by the website as a new listing, depending on the renting site used. We assure you - The Sea Inn is a tried and true, well appreciated unit! There are reviews "out there" even if not on this site. Just search the name.

** IMPORTANT NOTICE ** If you rent your stay though an online renting system such as vrbo or homeaway please be aware that much of our important communication - confirmation, arrival information, parking passes, pet policies, etc - come from our internal system at Waterview Unit Management, LLC. Please be on the lookout! You may be asked to give an e-mail address.

An e-signed contract with Waterview Unit Management LLC is mandatory to finalize your reservation. Arrival information will not be included otherwise.

Money Saving Rental Tips

  • Find the tourism bureau where you want to travel. Many tourism bureaus will send guide books with special deals for rental properties, dining and activities. Be on the lookout for these catalogs and coupon books, since this allows visitors to enjoy those fantastic attractions with a typically significantly discounted.
  • Are you willing to change your dates? Off-season rates are usually a fraction of top prices.
  • A number of rental companies and owners offer rate reductions for active and veteran members of the U.S. Military, or repeat guests to the same property. Be sure to ask property management company to see if your travelling crew qualifies for a discounted price.
  • Some rentals are essentially catered to particular customers, whether it's oceanside units with weekly pier passes, city-center homes with close access to night life or waterfront homes that feature private kiteboarding launching areas. You'll get the most value from a home which most closely satisfies your ideal holiday setting, regardless if it costs a little more.
  • Property management companies and individual rental owners typically offer their clients the opportunity to obtain trip insurance coverage. Trip insurance, which generally add somewhere between 1% - 5% of the basic stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of their travel expenses for any nights missed a result of personal medical related emergencies or storms, in addition to ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, such as an unplanned motel stay or extra fuel.

General Rental Home Tips & Tricks

You might be pleasantly surprised to uncover how many rentals are available at your destination. Vacation home accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of international research sites like Tripadvisor and VRBO.

Rental homes are usually owner operated or managed by rental management companies. Vacation rental management companies leverage scale, staff and working experience to provide simple and easy operational administration on behalf of the homeowner..

Seasoned Charleston area vacationers have identified a number of tips and tricks over the years with regards to renting rentals, however most beginners will be happy to know that several "techniques" are in plain sight, if you know where to search.

How to find and reserve the perfect rental property:

Before you start to book ""Bird's Eye View" #203 1Br/1Ba, Porch overlooks the pool, dog friendly", read through our brief collection of considerations.

Search Early and Often

Charleston area vacation rentals start booking very early. Booking your vacation property 6-12 months before your travel dates is highly recommended, when possible. A lot of groups prefer to begin their search over Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Eve gatherings.

Select your Town and Travel Week

Quite often, the hardest part of organizing your trip is deciding on where to go, and when. When the big decisions are tackled, the rest becomes easier.

Just How Much Vacation rental Do You Actually Need?

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Remember that a lot of vacation rentals advertise maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in the living room. You will need to figure out what is most appropriate for your company. Most vacation home listings will describe each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattresses.

What Exactly Are You Willing to Spend?

Will the chosen rental home suit your budget during that prime Summer week? Make sure to get cost-sharing commitments from travel companions well before booking a costly rental property. A single member of your company needs to be given the task of collecting repayments and acknowledging responsibility for the complete rental price at time of booking.

Let's Talk Amenities

What amenities is the group trying to find? Is a screened porch a necessity? Are you more interested in wildlife or nightlife? Does the unit have bikes and beach toys available as part of your stay? Make a list of prioritized "needs and wants" from your party to help narrow your search to the most appropriate home.

Special Issues to consider

Frequently the senior generation has problems with stairways. Be sure to remember and ask about wheel chair entry, pool lifts and specialized equipment requirements..

Paws-Friendly, Please

Be sure to include your companion! Even though many rental homes allow furry friends, guidelines and charges vary per rental. Make sure that you read descriptions and contracts carefully. Extra charges may apply when animals are added. If in doubt, ask the property owner and get it in writing.

Start the Search

As soon as the place, travel dates and family members are decided, search multiple resources for the greatest rental home selection. Besides Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Charleston area local rental properties" for local vacation rental management companies. Local agencies will often have a unique selection of vacation rentals daily and weekly.

Negotiate

When you have located your dream rental, double check to make sure your travel dates are available.

Although not true for all rental homes, many rental owners and property managers will make a deal on rates. If they are unwilling to budge on a peak-season trip, try getting an extra night. Your best chance for a lower rate will be switching to a less desirable week.

Study the Agreement

You'll want to know which services are included:

  • Power bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Long Distance Calls
  • Pool Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Cleaning Fees
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Fees

In addition to the regular price, travelers have to pay local taxes when renting ""Bird's Eye View" #203 1Br/1Ba, Porch overlooks the pool, dog friendly", in addition to any other fees which may be required depending on their situation, including a dog fee, early check-in or later check-out fee, or a pool heat fee for private swimming pool usage during the fall or spring months.

Cancellation Policies

Be sure you be aware of the cancellation policy before booking. You will likely be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance safeguards the renter against emergencies and weather events, It offers peace of mind should catastrophe strike.

Book your Rental Home

After you believe you've found "the one", start the booking process. You will likely have to submit a security deposit at time of reservation.

Keep Your Property Manager's Info

Make sure you get the property manager's contact telephone number and entry/exit procedures for your rental. We suggest keeping the contact's information in your phone and wallet.

Congratulations! All that is left is enjoying your visit!

During your Stay

  • Take notes of any wear and tear when you arrive. We also recommend promptly phoning the rental home manager with a report of any damages, together with your request for any needed fixes. If there is a disagreement about liability later, having the documented problems and contact attempts could be helpful.
  • Ask questions. You could need instructions for a fireplace, TV or spa tub. Contact your rental manager. They are there to help. A phone call can save hours of difficulties.
  • Please be respectful of the neighborhood. Residents most likely live within earshot. Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking regulations can make a stay a lot more enjoyable.
  • Ask a local. Local people can often point you in the right direction.
  • Enjoy your stay! Be sure to protect the property owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the vacation home locked up while you are away, just like you would at home.

Check Out Time

  • Double-check every space of the rental home to make certain you've collected all valuables.
  • Make a point to walk through the rental home one final time and look for property damage. We suggest walking through with the property manager whenever you can (this isn't always the case).. If the property manager is not available, make sure that you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How would you feel about your choice? Most rental management company sites request reviews after your stay is complete. Property owners and rental managers will thank you for positive ratings. If something went wrong, we suggest being kind but honest with regards to experience. The best property owners and managers will try very hard to correct the situation.

Learn and Improve

Does everybody want to re-book next year? We hope this guide steered you to a great vacation rental. If the rental home was not quite right, and you'll better know how to refine your search for the next time.
