DEWEES BEACH RETREAT: CHARLOTTE'S PEARL; OCEAN SIDE OF ISLAND

Dewees Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Charlotte's Pearl is a pristine barrier island retreat with one of the most beautiful beaches in the southeast. Our home is one of only 60 houses on this 1200 acre island. Our house is located near a beach access path which allows for an easy walk to the beach or a short golf cart ride. Most of the two and a half mile long island is untouched by development and over half in permanent conservation. You are often the only ones on the beach. Wildlife abounds on the island and includes deer, water fowl and migrating birds. The two tidal lakes on the island provide great fishing, crabbing, clamming and shrimping. However, just because you feel like you are worlds away from the stress you left behind, you are only 20 minutes from shopping, great restaurants, golf and the romantic city of Charleston via our comfortable Dewees Island ferry. Dolphins often escort the ferry to and from the island.

The custom built elevated second row home provides a wonderful private two acre oasis on the edge of a maritime forest with lake and marsh views. The sights and sounds of nature dominate. You feel like you are staying in your own private tree house with the closest visable home on the other side of the lake. The floor plan is inverted to allow maximum advantage of the marsh and lake views from the living areas and wrap around covered screened porch on the top floor. Each bedroom on the second level opens to a covered screened porch. Both master bedrooms have thier own private screened porch. From the rooftop observation deck, the views of the ocean and intercoastal waterway are magnificent.

As our guest you are able to use all the ammenities of the Huyler House such as the wonderful pool area and tennis courts. The Huyler is a magnificent lodge that serves as the center of the community.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Recently my family and I visited Charlottes Pearl on Dewees. I had waited all year to take this vacation and it did not disappoint. We arrived later than we expected and were able to find the house even in the dark (thanks to a good map and some really nice people out taking a moonlite stroll). When we arrived the house lights were on and everything was so inviting. The elevator was a luxury that I think every house should have. This was my daughters trip to celebrate her birthday. She and her 6 month old baby and a friend accompanied my husband and I. We awoke early, made mimosas and headed for the beach. During our stay we rode bikes, walked the beach, hunted for seashells, built sand castles, rode in the canoe and drove the golf cart around until the battery nearly died on the way back to the house. We saw alligators, deer, dolphins and crabs. My grandson put his toes in the ocean for the first time and tasted his first sand. The house was amazing. The dual master bedrooms afford us lots of privacy. The kitchen had everything we needed to make and serve meals. The doors that opened up onto the screen porch made me happy. We opened all the doors and let the breeze flow. We cooked on the grill. Had margaritas on the deck and listened as the ocean roared in the back ground. Only one surprising thing in the whole experience and not necessarily a bad one; just an FYI. There is only one tv in the entire house. We only had to do a little negotiating to see whether we were going to watch a movie or play video games. The wifi worked perfectly and there were books and magazines available as well. We met some very lovely people on the island as well, foremost was Judy and her charming husband. They were so kind and helped us navigate around even throwing crabs (the spiders of the sea) out of the canoe so that my daughter would not be scared. Their kindness was extraordinary. I learned a lesson though and decided that next time, I would take the advise of the experts and go to the house drop off all the luggage and go to the store later or have the groceries delivered before I arrived. The most difficult part of the trip was taking tired adults and a baby to the grocery store on our way in. My advise, take enough stuff for breakfast and go get what you need the next day. I give Charlottes Pearl a 10 out of 10. I would recommend the house to people of all ages and abilities.

Peaceful Retreat

This property is nested between the colorful greenery of the saltmarsh and the sea. When you walk into the house, you will be drawn to the second level's great room and open floor plan. It is surrounded with floor to ceiling glass doors that open onto large screened in porches. The rocking chairs and hammock invite you to open a cold drink, take a deep breath and RELAX while becoming a part of the colorful landscape.

This home is very clean, well equipped with kitchen supplies,serving pieces and clean, crisp linens.
It is perfect for entertaining a crowd, and there are many seating areas inside and out. There is a large, comfortable hammock on the porch, and in the mornings we saw deer walking through to the marsh area. This is also a great observation area for bird watching, and we saw a bald eagle, an osprey, and many other grand birds. The rooftop "crows nest" is also a great lookout to get a 360 view of the island.

The bedrooms are on the first level and the two master suites have their own private porches, while the other two share a porch. The beds are very comfortable and the master suite has a cute little outdoor room with a rug and futon.

This home is located a short walk from the beautiful beaches. There are two golf carts that accomodate exploring, fishing trips, or traveling to the pool or tennis courts.

We love this house and will be back. It is a good place to rejuvenate your soul and the owner was trustworthy and very kind.
