Sit on the back veranda and feel your stresses ebb away with the changing tide while enjoying the beautiful views of the Broad River. Launch a kayak from the backyard and experience the picturesque low country tidal marshes and all of the birds and wildlife that call it home. You may even come across a dolphin or two!
The cottage is located within the Palm Key Nature Getaway, a private 350-acre island that hugs the beautiful Broad River. Majestic Live Oaks are scattered throughout the property. Hawks, egrets, ibis, wood storks, herons and eagles are forever present in the skies and marsh. Enjoy the sound of silence.
This four-bedroom cottage features 8 queen-sized beds – 2 beds per bedroom. Each bedroom has its very own en-suite bathroom. Every bedroom also has private access to the back porch or second level deck where you will not want to miss the stunning sun rises that greet you every morning -- worth getting up for! The kitchen is fully equipped for preparing meals and there are two dining room tables to comfortably seat you and your guests.
The cottage is the perfect getaway to reconnect with family and friends without any of the modern day distractions, yet with all of the modern-day amenities. Read a book, play a game or put together a jigsaw puzzle up in the open loft area. Enjoy the sun on the upper deck, or relax in the shade on the front porch or back veranda. Grab a bamboo pole and try your luck fishing in the freshwater pond on the resort property. Go bird watching on the resort’s nature trails.
There are numerous kayaking trips that can be arranged for exploring the South Carolina’s low-country black water rivers and tidal marshes. It is also a short drive to Historic Beaufort, Savannah, Charleston, Hilton Head, and one of the Nation’s finest beaches at Hunting Island State Park.

We are a family that enjoy spending time with each other and friends. We enjoy the outdoors, but we also appreciate comfortable surroundings. Here at Palm Key we can experience the outdoors, each other, and a comfortable, homey place to stay.
Steve Trischman purchased this cottage in 2006
We actually rented a cottage at Palm Key to spend time with my brother's family that owned a cottage at Palm Key. We weren't expecting to enjoy it as much so actually rented a house on Fripp Island for a week after our stay at Palm Key. Boy were we wrong! We ended up loving Palm Key so much that we drove back from Fripp Island several times and by the end of the week had decided to design and build our cottage at Palm Key.
It truly is our 'Escape'. We come to Palm Key to unwind and get away from everything. It is truly the most serene, stressfree environment we have come across. And the sounds and the changing scenery of the marsh are like no other. Kayaks are available for our guests to use through Palm Key and when it is nearing high-tide you can literally put in out the back of the cottage.
Our family of four (two young kids) have rented this beautiful home twice with other families with young kids. The house had plenty of room for two or more families to spread out and have their own space. We loved that every bedroom had a large full bath and that there was not only the large family room but the loft upstairs with games and puzzles. The marsh right off the back deck was beautiful, especially the sunrises! We were able to reach so many great places (Hilton Head, Savannah, Beaufort, Hunting Island to name a few) easily from the house. Both visits were in Jan/Feb timeframe and although not hot,it was great weather for biking, hiking, and even hanging out out the beach! We can't wait to make it back there.
We loved the location of the house. Tucked away in a peaceful community. Fishing, biking, kayaking, hiking trails all right there. Also lots of really cool things to see and places to explore all within a short drive. The house could not have been laid out any better. Large bedrooms, full bathroom in every bedroom and all the common area you need to hang out and enjoy the time away. We would definitely return for another week and would recommend it highly to anyone considering.
Loved the location and the house. Peaceful and quiet but lots to do within 25 miles in all directions. House was emasculate and very well organized and equipped. Plenty of bathrooms and lots of privacy. Loved being able to sit on the deck and watch the tide come in and out. My grandchildren loved the outdoor play time and digging in the sand.Great vacation place for families with children or for those wanting to escaped the rigors of city life yet close to plenty of fun activities, beaches, and eating establishments. Highly recommend this property.
My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely, exceptionally equipped vacation rental. It's like a home away from home, except it has a lot more bathrooms. I love the layout which is family and adult friendly. Space for everyone to be together and gigantic bedrooms with their own full bath to retreat to. Not to mention the three porches and walking paths right outside the front and back doors. This is not our first visit to this home, but it was the first time we really explored. It was a treat to be so close to Savannah and check out what that historic town has to offer. But I must say that my favorite part is the view. There is something so calm and peaceful about the view out the back which is framed with trees dripping with Spanish moss. Not to mention the sighting of a huge variety of waterbirds. Nothing can beat the fresh shrimp available nearby and the convenience of grocery stores when we wanted to cook in. We had amazing shrimp on the barbecue and look forward to our next visit to Palm Key and this wonderful, well-kept, clean home.
I was very disappointed wtih my stay. 1) there were no tv's in the main sitting area, 2 tv's both in bedrooms 2) I killed 4 roaches and 1 spider- I live in a rural area and have my house sprayed regularly and have never had this problem, 3) Sheets on bed were NOT clean, long hair was on the pillows and when I replaced them with extras from closet-MORE HAIR...I travel a great deal and have rented numerous homes and condos. I have never dealt with the issues found in this home.
This house was great with 4 equal suites. The property was beautiful and relaxing. The family loved the fishing. We were 40 min from Beaufort and Fripp. Home was clean and comfy. We would love to come back someday!
