Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great home! First time in this home and we loved it. My family and I had to choose a different home this year due to the damage from hurricane Matthew the year prior. When we selected this home we were a little nervous, not knowing if it would suit our needs...This home was beautiful and was exactly what we needed! It could have received a five star rating if there had been curtains on the water side of the house (it was turtle season) and exterior door handles that didn't fall off when used. Very minor things that didn't affect the overall fantastic stay we had in this home!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice home We spent 10 days at Summer Salt and loved it. The house was clean and we loved the way that we could easily get to the beach. The kitchen and laundry room had everything we needed. Also, being in a gated community was a real bonus because it was quiet, and the people we did run into were very friendly. We had easy access to grocery stores, restaurants, and fresh sea food. We only noted one thing, it would be really nice to have curtains in the third floor bedroom. When we plan our next trip to Harbor Island, we will certainly keep his home in mind.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice Looking in ad but dissappointed with house House had almost no blinds or curtains anywhere, even in Bathrooms and bedrooms ( see through glass) nobody would use Master bedroom bath for this reason, the 2 children bedrooms had mattress that felt like boxsprings, 3 people slept on air mattress on floor instead, I apologized to my family for the sleeping arrangements. The living room couch were worn and dirty, Kithen was nice lay out but poorly furnished, we found a box of rotten potatoes in the bottom kitchen drawer, previous tenant issue but housekeeping should have found. water damage in upper bedroom and smelled really moldy, the resort did send a guy to clean carpet and spray for mosquitos (very appreciated) but that is all I can say positive about the house. for a total over 4,000 I expected more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful home We found the home beautiful with amazing views. We watched the dolphins swimming daily. There was some minor damage due to the hurricane. Cracks in walls etc. We visited in December and found some of the rooms too cold to use as year round rooms.....other rooms were too hot as we kept the heat turned up trying to warm up the cold rooms. New cutlery in the kitchen is needed, there are no steak knives. Only the master bed room had a TV. The teenage kids found the bunk mattresses uncomfortable. Extra blankets would have been welcomed. $47 per car fee would have been nice to know before booking. Ice machine from fridge leaking. No screens in windows...or curtains if we had wanted a breeze or privacy. None of these issues caused us too much distress. We had a great time and found the house and views beautiful. It's nice home for a short stay, family gathering, parris island graduation etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Summer Salt , great location, clean, great views I visited this home in August 2017, I was very nice, clean, and welcoming had great views, saw Dolphins swimmimng behind shrimp boat more than once everyday. Had enough room for together time or alone time for the family. Got to witness a group finding sea turtle nests and if they has hatched, they would catch them and witnessed them helping direct them to find their was to the ocean. The only negative to the house is, it does not offer much privacy from close houses as there were no blinds and the Mosquitos were the worst I have ever seen, we had bug spray for ourselves which helped slow them down but all of us left with several bits on us (mostly on arms. And legs about 20 bits each) we had a wonderful time at the beach the Mosquitos were not there the biggest area was around the garage area and the side of house near the heating but the screened porch area allowed us to enjoy outside sitting to watch and listen to the ocean neither of these would stop me from another stay but would maybe ask that the area be treated with something before arrival.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice layout, needs repairs and updates Downstairs bathroom needs serious attention. Also, one of the downstairs toilet does not have a door, or window coverings and faces straight in neighboring home - cannot be used at all. Kitchen needs to be stocked better as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Perfect house with easy access to beach The accommodations were great and the beach was very private. You can only swim at hide tide as at low tide it is all mud. Water looked more like a harbor and lake then the entrance to the ocean as it was brown and muddy.
