 Property Reviews 
Enjoyed our stay
John W. from Mt. Pleasant, SC recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014
Our vacation at edisto and our stay at the Ballantine was very enjoyable. I say that in view of the fact that our family has been coming to edisto since 1988 and have stayed at the Ballantine during many of those years. However, this year marks the third time that we have been "bumbed" by the owners forcing us to look elsewhere and sometimes that included other rental agencies.

Great week at Ballentine Cottage
Sandra B. from Jupiter, FLA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014
Ballentine was the perfect size house for our family--my husband and I had the downstairs private room and bath; my two daughters and husbands and five children had the upstairs 4 bedrooms and two baths. There was plenty of both indoor and outdoor space. Everything was clean and all appliances and A/C worked well. The beach was lovely and never crowded and a wonderful place for families to relax. We hardly left the property except for one dinner out the last night. It was a great week. Thank you Atwood and Ballentine owners!

Ballentine
A guest from Imperial, MO recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2014
The only problem with this house was the downstair's bedroom had a smell of turpentine/paint that never aired out. All I could figure is they had painted the bathroom recently. The upstairs bedrooms were fine with plenty of room and the house was larger than expected. Really enjoyed the screened porch and the views. Plenty of showers (5) to wash any sand away. The neighborhood was quiet.

Ballentine
Mary R. from Reynoldsburg, Ohio recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2014
We loved the location of the Ballentine, directly on the Sound. The pictures don't do it justice. The interior was charming and very roomy. We were especially pleased with the amount of beds, as we are all single and prefer not to share. The only negative issue we had was the downstairs bedroom and bath had an odor to it, that was hard to clear-out making the room useless for a couple of nights. Over all everyone had a wonderful time and if we go back to Edisto Beach, we would want to rent this house again.

AWESOME LOCATION, average house
A guest from Thornburg, VA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2013
Location, Location, Location. This home is situated perfectly between the ocean and the sound which makes for great beach time, shell collecting, sunsets, sunrise, etc. The walk to the beach is well maintained and very convenient. We especially enjoyed the fact that this home has a screened in porch AND an open deck facing the water. HOWEVER, it seems that the owner has not performed necessary cleaning and maintenance in MANY years. There is a LARGE amount of black mold growing from several of the HVAC vents. It has been acknowledged because it has been painted over several times it appears from the varying colors on the ceiling. But paint doesn't kill mold. This made for a difficult stay for a couple of us with sensitive respiratory systems. There is also mold and mildew growing inside the picture frames hanging on the wall. All of this was upstairs in the main house. The downstairs bathroom floor is completely rotten and soft. I understand it is a beach house near the water, but it shouldn't be listed as "usable space" when it really isn't clean or safe to breathe or walk in. The fact that the furniture is "dated" would be acceptable, but it is well worn out beyond the number of years that it could be considered comfortable. Overall, we had an awesome stay. We'll rent with Atwood again in Edisto, but we will not stay in this exact home.

James,
Thank you for providing your feedback regarding your visit to Ballentine. We appreciate you taking the time to share your comments with us. While we are pleased that you enjoyed some quality beach time, but our concerns are with your experience with the overall state of this home. The owners of this property are active in it's maintenance and did quite an overhaul in the spring of 2013. Due to your review and a previous suggestion, we are having a contractor repair these issues. The home has been deemed as safe and the "mold" is not mold at all. We have taken every step to ensure guest saftey. We appreciate your consideration and look forward to being you host in the future.

Balentine beach house
A guest from Rosewell, GA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013
Lovely location, excellent access to beach. The house was spacious and well planned, very clean but some of the living room furniture was very outdated and a spare bed in the living room was a little weird even if it was discretely located. The ground floor extra bedroom aircon was intermittent especially at night so the room was stuffy and musty. However, we had a great time at this house and we all enjoyed being seated round the large dining table eating and playing family games. The best part of this house was its beach location.

Beach Babes getaway week
Monica J. from Tryon, NC recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2013
A new house for this group, but as soon as we arrived we realized it was home away from home! We loved the screened porch with the rockers; loved the deck for our morning coffee, plenty of chairs for everyone, and loved everything about it. The living room is spacious. There's a large dining table in the kitchen area, plus a puzzle table in the living room. Bathrooms are newly refurbished, and have little touches like bath mats and new shower curtains. The kitchen is well stocked with great cookware. We had a chef with us, who was very pleased! And a kettle for tea drinkers too (first one I've ever seen in a rental for some reason...).The downstairs/under the house open area has a shower at the base of the stairs for removing sand and another outdoor shower (although not fully enclosed so we didn't use it as a real shower in case we shocked the neighbors)and a sink and table for cleaning fish/oysters/whatever, plus another seating area. New walkway to the dune. Washing machine room too. we didn't use the downstairs bedroom and bathroom, so can't comment on that, but we peeked in and it looked comfortable, although a little dark and stuffy. The dune is wide and flat, the beach gorgeous, and the waves milder on this stretch. We decided we liked this end of Edisto the best - you can walk to the point and see tons of wildlife. All in all, a great beach house, wonderful week.

We have stayed at this property twice for our annual fishing trip and find the location perfect.

Ballentine Cottage
Ann F. from aiken, SC does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2011
We loved the location and the overall layout of the cabin was fine. However, there are some significant maintenance issues with the house. We had some trouble with one toilet. More distressing was the overall rundown appearance of the cabin. The screen on the porch was torn in several places. The porch floor needed repair. The ceiling in the main room needs to be redone. The air vents appeared to have mold or mildew around them--maybe it was just dirt. The kitchen needs updating though it was servicable. The furnishings were fine. Several of the exterior doors were difficult to open/ close or lock. The downstairs apartment smelled very stale. My son-in-law, a professional in construction, said there were several issues he noticed with the sewer venting and the support structure for the deck and porch. It is a potentially lovely property in a fabulous location. We would like to return but only if considerable maintenance is done.

We stayed here as a last minute getaway for the Labor Day weekend.

The main living area is very open and a nice layout with beautiful views of the ocean. While I have stayed at a range of homes from very budget minded to complete luxury, I knew what to expect by the photos and knew it would be more of a rustic beach cottage. However, there are things that need fixed for the price we ended up paying per night around $265/night (due to a less than one week stay) plus all of the fees. The refrigerator was warm at best, even beyond the four hour initial cooling period. Much of the food we brought along, we did throw away due to safety concerns and not wanting to 'chance' it with young kids. We did place a call to the maintenance line at 6 PM on the evening of our arrival to discuss our concern and were told someone would call us back. No one ever did. The DVD/VHS player didn't work. The wall paper in the bathroom is falling off and a staple gun was used in various spots tor reattach it. General kitchen utensils were missing - a regular, easy to use spatula for eggs/pancakes, a basic spoon to cook ground turkey/beef. The grill cover is dangerous at best and doesn't sit flush on the grill - so beware when using it - especially if you have kids like we do and it falls off (while very hot) and rolls on the ground toward our child. There is siding missing, screens not attached in the screened in porch (sort of defeats the purpose of keeping out bugs) and just general maintenance that was lacking. I'm sure it was cleaned before we got there and I'm not a clean freak, but I think the place is so old that it just wouldn't look clean no matter how much the cleaners spent time on it. The owners of this home have a lovely, memory filled property I'm sure - but ple

Stay at Ballentine
A guest from Asheville, NC recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2010
The overall stay at the Ballentine house was good. The house was comfortable and the layout was great and the view was spectacular. The porches were awesome and the outside showers were great for rinsing off after time on the sand. There are some updates that really need to happen here though. The wallpaper was literally "hanging" off the walls in the bathrooms. The bathrooms had rust in them, no soap holder in the shower, rot on the window ledge and overall felt a little unsanitary. The flat screen t.v. was very nice, but it was basically the only t.v. There was a very small 13" t.v. in one of the bedrooms, but would have been nice to have a better secondary. The kitchen had everything you needed, although there were not enough drinking glasses for everyone in the house. The house does not have a water filtration system, so you must buy your drinking water or bring containers to fill at the town hall. Also, a dryer would be a nice addition for the wet beach towels since linens aren't provided. Overall I would stay here again, its location on the beach and the view are worth it.

Home away from home - Ballentine the classic beach home.
A guest from Chehalis, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 14 days in July, 2009
We have stayed at the Ballentine house a number of times. It may not be the most modern on the beach but it has that comfortable beach house feel. It is an older home but that is to the good as it has those little extra's that are useful at the beach but no where else. A fish cleaning table and plenty of outdoor water showers and taps for cleaning the catch. Also a number of hooks to sling a hammock or two (the hammocks aren't there any more unfortunately). It has the screened in porch on the ocean side for listening to the ocean and being outside even if the sun is pouring down or the bugs are about. We always shift a table outside for eating. It may be an older house but it doesn't smell damp (except in the basement bedroom).The beach is good, sandy and wide,the water not as rough as the point or as crowded as closer to 'The Pig". You can sit and watch the sun set into the water. The bicycle path is a block away and you can meander through the development. Fresh shrimp and fish is a five minute drive to the Marina. The house is comfortable but not pretentious - a family can relax here. We have always thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will come back again.
