Why rent a house when you can rent an estate? Drive down the meandering oak lined driveway to your secluded waterfront home in a gated community in the Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge overlooking Bulls Bay. Despite its proximity to historic Charleston, warm beaches, islands, and unlimited coastal & cultural activities, you will not be able to see another house from your 6 acre estate. Spend time relaxing and enjoying the views and abundant wild life near the amenities of Charleston!
The home includes 5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths and sleeps 12 adults and up to 3 more children (large window seat/bed that sleeps 2 small children and a crib). The large master bedroom has the feel of a tree house overlooking the water. Other amenities at the home: 50” HD plasma TV with DVD & VCR, DVD collection, hammock on screened porch, fully equipped kitchen, gas grill, large indoor and outdoor dining tables, jet tub in master bath, 2 car garage, fireplace, enclosed out door shower, crab traps, extra freezer (for all the fish you catch). Pier with deep water floating dock, swing, and sink. Floating dock has ladder for easy swimming. Child swing hanging from an oak tree.
The home is named for the 22 foot diameter oak tree in the front yard. From every window you will enjoy a long range view over the water and/or beautiful oaks. There is a historic civil war canon embankment and other era relics on the property. There is a neighborhood landing if you want to bring a boat (Boat & Jet ski rentals are also available on nearby Isle of Palms.) Equestrian neighborhood (we can help you find boarding if you want to bring your horse). Volleyball net and other outdoor games are available.
Boat rides are available to Bull Island (undeveloped barrier island in front of our home) so you can play on a private beach or see the sea turtles nesting (seasonal). Dolphins are plentiful in the waterway. National Bird of Prey center is nearby. Charleston approx 30min, Isle of Palms approx 22min, Mt Pleasant approx 18min. In order to meet the high standards of our guests, we do not allow smoking or pets.
Hurricane protection: Unlike most rentals, we put in our contract that we will refund all of your money if you have to cancel due to a hurricane.
