Vacation Checklist & Guest Services

Check-In/Check-Out

Check-In time is after 4PM. Every effort will be made to have the Property ready for occupancy by check-in. Keys will be released when the Property has been reported as ready for occupancy or after 4PM. Please do not park cars or enter the rental until officially checked in or provided with keys from the Rental Department. If you're arriving after business hours you will find your keys and directions to your rental property in our "Late Arrival" drop box located at the Atwood Vacations office. Remember to return your signed Guest License Agreement prior to your arrival for a quick and easy Check-In experience.

Check-Out time is 10AM. We ask that you and your belongings are out of the rental property by 10AM, but you are welcome to grab a bite to eat or shop for a few last-minute souvenirs before dropping your rental keys back off at the Atwood Vacations office. Remember that you don’t have to worry about the hustle and bustle of cleaning the home prior to your departure, just complete the basics – take out the trash, remove all items from the refrigerator, and make sure all dishes are clean and put away. We will take care of the rest and ensure that the home is clean and sterilized. Have a safe trip home and we look forward to your next visit!

Provided Linens & Towels

As of 2018 ALL of Atwood Vacations rental properties include complementary linens and towels sterilized and cleaned to industry standards. As a bonus, beds will be made upon your arrival. Bring your beach towels but leave the rest of your towels and linens at home. If you should need, a washer and dryer are available at all the properties during your stay.

Upon arrival to any Atwood vacation rental you will be welcomed by a Thank You card and custom Welcome Tote Bag which includes bottled water, 2 rolls of toilet paper, dish detergent, and a few other starter items until you’re able to unpack your bags and/or make a trip to the local grocery store. The custom tote is yours to keep and doubles as a reusable shopping bag throughout your stay!

Items which are perishable or can become unsanitary are not kept in the properties. For your convenience a complete list of “What to Bring” is included below. 

We are dedicated to setting the standard of service here on Edisto and look forward to enhancing our services each season!
