Our great-grandfather built this house in 1945 and sold it years later. My father loved it so much that he bought it back in 1964. We have pictures of the house and beach at different periods of our family's involvement. Everyone who enters breathes a sigh of relaxation because of the beautiful views and open layout that invites the constant breeze and sea air. We have retained all of the charming and necessary features for full beach enjoyment such as a large porch looking out over the ocean with a comfortable sofa and chairs, a porch dining table with six chairs and room for more, and a hard to resist hammock. In addition, we have provided modern amenities such as Wireless Internet, a flat-screen TV and DVD player, and an IPod docking station. There are two additional televisions with DVD players in two bedrooms.
Our favorite spots are the swing on the beach side, the lounge chairs on the deck that face the beach, and the dune deck that allows you to perch above the rest of the beach goers and watch the surfers and ships. The full kitchen with gas stove, gas grill, and dining room make it so you never have to leave this great spot to eat. However, there are fabulous restaurants on the Isle of Palms, Sullivan's Island and downtown. It is a five-minute drive to Target and Towne Center, where there are boutiques, a movie theater, a Lowes, and a department store. There are dozens of highly rated golf courses within a 20-mile radius. All of the bedrooms have ceiling fans, blinds, functioning windows and screens to allow for the refreshing sea breeze. The HVAC is brand new. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, charming tile bathroom, two closets, and t.v. and DVD player. The other two bedrooms on the main floor, twin and queen, have built-in dressers and full closets, and share a bathroom with shower and tub. The first floor bedroom has twin beds, its own bathroom, and two showers adjacent to it. Downstairs is another den with TV and a futon/bunk bed perfect for teens to hang out!
This is a family house. We enjoy it with children and cousins of multiple ages, and there is something for everyone. We live in Charleston and use the house when we can, so it is kept in prime condition. We have rented the house for more than 40 years and know what needs to be done to create a positive experience for renters.
The Isle of Palms is a safe, welcoming, and supportive community. You can walk to the grocery store, post office, restaurants, ice cream, and seafood store. The playground is in walking distance and has tennis courts, a basketball court, gym, soccer, football, and baseball fields. The public park with lifeguards is within sight of our house.
This is the best surfing area on the beach- the best break is 25 yards to the left of our dune path. We have a full beach and do not experience erosion problems since we are in the middle of the island. We love to look for loggerhead turtle nests. We have witnessed both the laying and hatching of eggs. We do a lot of running on the beach and on the bike path on the marsh side of the island.
