Isle of Palms House Rental Photos and Description

location location 2 bdr house $1500 sleeps 4 1700sq ft

This is an Old Fashion Beach House.. The main house 2 bdr 1500 sq ft townhouse across the street from the beach / fenced yard / hot tub u can cool/ this is lived in when Captain is at sea. This house has an an option for an addition of (very good for Parents) a mother in law( refer to Captain's full Quarter's #344990 for sleeping 10 )efficiency that is separated from house with fence and wall with kitchen with deck and grill . a Hilton Garden Suite perfect for those who do not do steps..separate fence if animals do not get along..large deck 23x 10 on back .of each unit .. .These homes were built by an Italian group in 1948 . The ocean can be heard from the house.The location is great because it takes you off Palm Blvd., the main busy street but you still have access to the beach with in 1/2 blk to two accesses of ocean across the street. There is no thru-faire so no traffic there and all residential neighbors, so please respect them. The house is located between 29th and 30th -- a short beach walk to downtown IOP and walking distance to Morgan's Marina..where Bill Murray owner of the baseball group hangs out..both areas have restaurants, grocery stores shopping areas entertainment 7 nights a week..

It is built in town house fashion so it provides a lot of privacy for bedrooms upstairs where others cannot be heard downstairs. There is an excellent closed in porch that you can open up with lots of windows that can add heat/cool space. There is a six foot formal white fence around the house for privacy an allowing pets a large space to roam.... I have kept alot of the wildness for the birds in the very back . This home I love out of the twelve I remodeled after Hugo.There is a recreational complex free for all a few blocks behind that has an indoor and outdoor basketball court.. With in-door ping pong , workout facilities and yoga. Call the Isle of Palms Rec Center..its all free. The hot tub is great and It's secluded.. It is also a mineral spa not chlorine. ...please shower before you use to remove oils and absorb minerals for full benefit. Please feed the 40 species of birds with seed the Captain leaves .

Have a great time!!

Guestbook comments from the owner
There is landscaped graveled parking area with a new beautiful six foot white fence for total privacy. The beach is 300 feet away with a stretch of 100 feet beach reserved to the credit of the building planning of the Isle of Palms .The flowers in the entrance were a beautiful greeting. This is not a new home but an older home well kept an decorated that is lived in part time by a Captain that appreciates the ocean.The upstairs has one large completely tiled to the ceiling full bath with overhead walk in shower an clawfoot tub.It has an additional large half bath for other bedroom plus a convienient half bath down stairs. The new diing room set with beautiful high back comfortable wooden seating of six is a great place to eat an gather easily. The porch is totally glassed in for casual enjoyment of the beautifully landscaped yard with swing ,hammock an fountain.There are hundreds of birds that nest in the back yard an you can hear them singing in the large fun to watch them eat.I give this home a five star rating..

Captain Rachel purchased this house in 1995

I Love this Island because of 40 ft building limit outside of Wild Dunes. There are few people on the beach. It is friendly as Mayberry by the sea. Everyone knows each other and the police department is very helpful. It was voted one of the best beaches in US. It is family oriented .Also it was voted best shopping- the best shopping is across the connector at town center. Everything you need in big outdoor beautiful mall. The theatre is the best I have ever been in. Then you also have Charleston downtown shopping,live theatre , and unique art galleries up and down Broad street.It is wonderful to stay on the beach and visit downtown Charleston.

Right across from the beach but off the main road Palm Blvd that is noisy and dangerous for children an pets. This house is private in it's extremely peaceful and very private in a residential neighborhood that has a Isle of Palms recreational area 2 blks behind the home. This beautiful southern home has new white 6 ft privacy fence and moss covered oak in back. It has a wonderful chemical free mineral hot tub,hammock and outdoor patio. The porch on the home itself can be air conditioned it has huge clear windows that open and close along with Ac vents an unit....The main house (1)is like a town house with a porch 2 bedrooms upstairs an downstairs kitchen that seats 6 at table an 4 at bar downstairs with the living room and porch all about 1500 sq ft. ($2100 in summer)There was an added on addition to home before Hugo that contains optional two additional efficiency apartments. This makes for the best way ever to travel with other families..You can have separate efficiences to stay with young families or one efficiency was built for parents that can't climb stairs on ground floor.(2)extra $1100 in summer own porches grills an kitchen,livingroom and fenced in yards. So you can just rent the main house with hot tub which is really a townhouse or you can rent one or two of the efficiencies and have everyone in the main house for dinner/breakfast /lunch (or not) each one also has a small breakfast table. So the main townhouse sleeps 4 or if with children the chaise on porch can do for sleeping or a futon under one of the beds upstairs small children can sleep in room. So 4 adults in main house an (2)1 bedroom with fold out sofa in down stairs ground floor sleeps 4(3) an 1 bdrs upstairs for 2 more people..that the Captain stays in winter .Each efficiency is like a Hilton Garden Efficiency . (3) 1 bedroom with luxuary bathroom ,porch, hardwood floors ,dishwasher and leather sofa.( $2100 a wk) honey moon palace up in the bamboo ..totally private

We had a girls weekend where we wanted to first and foremost be together cooking and hanging on the beach and the back patio and yard. This place was the perfect spot. It was quaint and well maintained. It felt like we were staying in an old friends beach house for the weekend. We are big cookers and the kitchen had all of the supplies we needed. The house was so well equipped with what we needed and so close to the beach but tucked away from the main road we felt secluded enough.

Thank you Captain Rachel we will definitely be booking again for our follow up trip.

This little gem was a great find and we will be back next year for sure. The location is very quiet and a short walk to the ocean which you can hear at night. We rode bikes everywhere day and night. The property has a brand new washer and dryer, nicer than what I have at home. The maid was polite and worked quickly and quietly making the stay even more realizing.

My husband and I stayed at Captain's Old Fashioned beach house for the month of October. We were very happy and comfortable. Everything was provided for us from a wonderful relaxing hot tub to laundry detergent and toilet paper. The house was very well maintained and convenient to the beach, and local restaurants. A must try is the Chinese retaurant on the Isle of Palms. It has delicious food if you look Chinese and Thai. The backyard was so peaceful. The photos accurately represent the house. The wireless internet connection and the TV cable selection also provided additional evening entertainment. The only suggestion I have is to fix the sleigh bed in the master room since it is very creeky and will wake you up while you are sleeping. I highly recommend this house on the beautiful Isle of Palms. Thumbs up!

I stayed at Captain Rachel's beach house for two weeks this past August at the height of the summer tourist season and while there experienced complete peace and relaxation. The apartment is quiet with lovely trees and vegetation, bird feeders, and the fabulous hot tub out back. The kitchen is newly renovated and the living space orderly, clean, and open. The bedrooms upstairs are calmly soothing and the beds oh so comfortable. I am not into frills or over the top ornamentation. I wanted a basic quiet beach house and Captain Rachel's fit the bill perfectly. The beach is a close convenient walk. Rachel is kind funny and accommodating. We had no issues with arrival, billing, or departure. Everything went smooth as ice. Rachel had great tips as to where to dine around town and on the island. I plan on going back again and highly recommend this property for anyone wanting a true beach house and quiet rejuvenating experience. Go Go Go...

The location is very accurate and the walk to the beach was easy. The pictures do show exactly what the property looks like. The property was clean enough but definitely needs some help (more to come in explanation). The kitchen was equipped with plenty of appliances (coffee maker, toaster, blender, can opener, etc.), glasses, dishes, etc. It could definitely use more only had one each of large, medium, small. I prefer to cook rather than eat out and could have used more pots and cooking utensils. If you eat out every night on vacation, it won't be a problem. The dining area was large and provided plenty of seating space and the living room was quite comfortable. The sun room appears lovely but the roof leaks so the entire house has a musty, wet-dog smell. The 2 bedrooms upstairs were adequate but be warned the springs under the mattresses are VERY noisy. You can't sit or roll over without a lot of squeaking noise. The large bathroom was adequate and provided a nice tiled shower. The other two bathrooms are just half baths (sink and toilet). I grew up going to old time beach houses as a child, so I am experienced in staying in an older beach establishment. These observations are not from a fussy 5 star vacationer, just someone giving an honest review.

Owner's Response: The beds I checked an the supports have been broken under the beds an are being replaced....the sqeek will be fixed. I too went over to the house an smelled the dog smell after these people left an called maid service that is on the wall with other instructions...they were there with in the hour an mopped the floors an wipped the furniture more smell..the roof does nto leak roofers work on the roof every year. You'd also have tell tell spotting on sheet rock..but sometimes the maids miss something an you need to call me or the maid service ....the freon tubes are run on the outside of the house so no moisture is allowed in the house...I do allow pets because they are family an my cleaners sometimes miss them they'll come immediately...thankyou for the good things but what a terrible rating for such a great place an location...

Our experience was a calamity from start to finish! Check what it is you are actually renting as we ended up having to sleep on the sofa and buy a mattress to sleep on the floor.
From front to back, top to bottom, this house needs attention / rennovation, in our opinion. Tiles ungrouted, light and power outlets without covers, toilets not flushing, taps (hot v cold) on wrong way.
Owner communicated via text only.........when we had the audacity to point these issues out. I guess I changed my name to "my god" as that is how the text started.

Owner's Response: Oh my these people got the place for half of the asking price an knew there were only two bedrooms. They told me on booking there were two people an their dog. They showed up with their two older 40 year old children an grand children for two bedrooms using every bit of linen in the house in which the maid bill was $227 normally an i was $480 on their leaving a mess.also they exceeded the limit on the parking but I did not ask them to leave.I never will give a discount like that again because it is always those sort of people that take advantage of your goodwill...oh well life we have them all.
