Sullivans Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Charming Sullivan's Island home located on a quiet street, directly across from the beach with primary path access. The 2nd story of the house, which is the 4 bedroom rental, has a very spacious screened in front porch ideal for quiet reading, or watching the world go by slowly. Ideal location for children, with an outdoor shower... perfect for washing off from your beach walk or activities.

Our family has owned this house for 35 years and hope you enjoy this respite from the busy world as much as we have. It is a perfect place to celebrate a special family occasion and spend time on the beach. The house is just a 3 minute walk from the beach to the refrigerator, for a sandwich, cold drink or to the restroom. The house is affectionately referred to as Blaine's house, in loving memory of Blaine and Gerry Miller. This house was built for family gatherings and vacations, take advantage of it!! We hope you'll spend your vacation with the Miller's at the house that was built on memories and still has room to grow with your own!

Please see the history of the house and our family below....

In the event of a hurricane, during your scheduled stay, we will gladly refund your deposit.

About The Owner

Our family has owned this house since 1977, the house was built in 1952 and like our neighbors the Rhapans on the left, and the Hickmans on our right, has survived even Hurricane Hugo. The other homes are simply new construction in a very special place, where the older island homes still stand.

Our house is a typical pre Hugo house, that exudes more comfort and love rather than big screen tv's or elevators. We have hosted family weddings, birthdays and graduations from this privileged perch..all because Blaine and Gerry Miller were married here in downtown Charleston during WWII and decided after chasing a corporate dream to make 2804 Marshall Blvd home. There are two other homes on the island that are the same style and type as this house. One of which is also down the street on Marshall Blvd beachside.

This is the spot where our kids have searched for sea treasure, made lemonade stands, learned to ride bicycles, count the pelicans named 'George and Myrtle' and greet people from their day at the beach. One thing to know if you are interested in renting our house..it is really the spot on Sullivan’s you are renting, not the brick and mortar. The house that sat across the street from ours hosted the great playwright Arthur Miller, and behind us in the little postage stamp cottage built in 1909..other writers have sought refuge. Sullivan’s is well known as the inspiration for the likes of Edgar Allen Poe, and Pat Conroy.

If you do not know these names then perhaps the Holiday Inn would be better suited for your express vacation...

The Owner purchased this house in 1977

Why The Owner chose Sullivans Island

Sullivan's Island is indeed a special place. Almost every step you take while visiting on this quaint little respit has some historical significance..it truly is NOT myrtle Beach, nor Destin or South Miami Beach or Hilton Head. It is it's own unique piece of history covered with an ambient heir of Tranquility. It is a place where families can manufacture great memories that will test grandfather time..it is safe and serene..

What makes this house unique

Originally, Sullivan's Island was a waypoint for miscreants. It blossomed into a summer beach retreat for Charlestonians..and now is a place where several generations have called home....ours included.

Please be mindful in your visit of the precious Eco system that comprises our small barrier island, and the robust and burgeoning wildlife at waters edge. Sea Oats are scattered along the beach path as a hideaway for small rabbits, and serve as precious building blocks to prevent erosion. Sea turtles are also native and have visited the 28 station beach in front of our house many times over the years.

Last week I was at the house to put in new carpet, furniture and beds. Sitting quietly on the front porch about 1:30 a.m., I saw something I have never seen in the 35 years at our house..I watched with amazement, 2 small deer in the front yard grazing.

We sincerely hope you and your family enjoy this simple retreat as much as we have these three and half decades....sincerely and without reservation...Mark Miller

Great rental on Sullivan's Island

Great rental on Sullivan's Island
  • 5 of 5
This is a perfect vacation rental for families with small children! We just spent a week there with two familes with a total of four small children. The house is clean and has a terrific layout with the bedrooms on one end and the living room, kitchen and porch on the other end. The porch is perfect for enjoying the days and nights! The house is directly across from a beach access and the beach has a huge tidal pool perfect for the kids. The house is definitely old, but really perfect for our group. Would definitely stay again. Only recommendation would be moving the laundry room upstairs and adding heat to the outdoor shower.

Lovely beach house within walking distance of beach with boardwalks to the beach. The home had all of the comforts of home. The kitchen was fully equipped for cooking for the family. Front porch was great to visit with friends and family. Love the painting on the porch "whatever happens on the porch stays on the porch." We were able to ride bicycles around the island and onto the beach. House is located within a few miles of Charleston with lots of historical places to visit. We will stay at this location again.

Inviting Beach House

  • 4 of 5
The house was clean and quite comfortable with a very nice kitchen and large family room. The beach was very close, 3 min., and very nice for walking or for children to play in the tidal pools. Charleston is just 15 min away. It is an older home and some lamps are missing switches and need to be plugged in and out to work. The laundry is "rustic" but machines are clean. The grill had been left dirty but was easily hosed off with the hose by the very nice outdoor shower. Downstairs, there are folding chairs to carry to the beach. We had a lovely stay and found the "great room" very inviting for family gatherings.

Great Beach House for Families

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful time together at this beach house. It is ideally located for families with young children since it is a safe walk to the beach. Although this is an older house, it was spacious, well equipped, clean and very comfortable for our family.
Sullivan's Island is great for biking and walking on the beach. The city of Charleston is a short drive and has many interesting sights and fine restaurants.
The property manager was easily accessible and responded to my questions. I would highly recommend this property.

Happy Family of Four

  • 4 of 5
The house was perfectly located on Sullivan's Island to walk to the restaurants. The close proximity to the beach was ideal especially with small children. The kitchen was well-equipped for cooking elaborate dinners and the upgraded bathrooms were great. The sliding doors onto the porch really made the stay delightful although difficult to open and close. The tenant living in the rental below the house was a surprise- perhaps disclosure of this living situation could have been communicated. The WiFi was not working and the grills for barbecuing were dirty and unusable. Overall, we really enjoyed the stay and look forward to a visit again soon.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed the house and that you are interested in renting it again; we definitely will address any other concerns mentioned, it’s always good to get feedback, we want everyone’s beach experience a happy one. As for WIFI, we certainly do our best to make sure everything works, but sometimes that’s out of our control, we take every measure with our service provider (Comcast) to get things working properly, our apologies for it being down during your stay.

Nice week at the beach

  • 4 of 5
This is an older beach house that's been fairly well maintained. It was exactly as we expected; comfortable, close to the beach, clean and roomy. If you're looking for the Taj Mahal, this isn't it but it's a great spot and a great value for what you get. A close walk to the beach (perhaps 125 yards) lots of living room and a very workable kitchen. We'd go back anytime.
