WELCOME TO THE BEACH! It is finally time time to relax. Take it easy for a while. Comfort, ease, and convenience are yours.
This charming, elevated, beach cottage is one of the last original lowcountry elevated South Carolina beach cottages on the Isle of Palms. The house has been in our family since the early 1920s. It has seen a lot of history, including black-out curtains in World War II, a direct hit by Cat. 5 Hurricane Hugo in 1987, as well as hundreds of family vacations.
The house is across a small lane from the beach. It is only about a 3 minute walk through the sand dunes on a comfortable wide path to a nearly private beach. No commercial district. Very few people!
Enjoy the rocking chairs on a large front screened porch with partial ocean views. Go for a quiet walk on the nearly empty beach at night, watch the moon rise over the water, but try not to disturb the sea turtle nests.
Tongue-and-groove floors, walls, and ceiling were the traditional styles of beach construction in the early 1920s. We have updated the conveniences of the house while trying to maintain its original,
laid-back character. There is plenty of sand, with toys, under the house for children to enjoy when they are not on the beach. There are bicycles for you to enjoy during your stay.
We are conveniently close to historic downtown Charleston with incredible shopping, wonderful world-class restaurants, challenging golf, and numerous other entertainment options.
