Overview

Sullivan's Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Charming Sullivan's Island home located on a quiet street, directly across from the beach with primary path access. The 2nd story of the house, which is the 4 bedroom rental, has a very spacious screened in front porch ideal for quiet reading, or watching the world go by slowly. Ideal location for children, with an outdoor shower... perfect for washing off from your beach walk or activities.

Our family has owned this house for 35 years and hope you enjoy this respite from the busy world as much as we have. It is a perfect place to celebrate a special family occasion and spend time on the beach. The house is just a 3 minute walk from the beach to the refrigerator, for a sandwich, cold drink or to the restroom. The house is affectionately referred to as Blaine's house, in loving memory of Blaine and Gerry Miller. This house was built for family gatherings and vacations, take advantage of it!! We hope you'll spend your vacation with the Miller's at the house that was built on memories and still has room to grow with your own!

Please see the history of the house and our family below....

In the event of a hurricane, during your scheduled stay, we will gladly refund your deposit.

About The Owner

Our family has owned this house since 1977, the house was built in 1952 and like our neighbors the Rhapans on the left, and the Hickmans on our right, has survived even Hurricane Hugo. The other homes are simply new construction in a very special place, where the older island homes still stand.

Our house is a typical pre Hugo house, that exudes more comfort and love rather than big screen tv's or elevators. We have hosted family weddings, birthdays and graduations from this privileged perch..all because Blaine and Gerry Miller were married here in downtown Charleston during WWII and decided after chasing a corporate dream to make 2804 Marshall Blvd home. There are two other homes on the island that are the same style and type as this house. One of which is also down the street on Marshall Blvd beachside.

This is the spot where our kids have searched for sea treasure, made lemonade stands, learned to ride bicycles, count the pelicans named 'George and Myrtle' and greet people from their day at the beach. One thing to know if you are interested in renting our house..it is really the spot on Sullivan’s you are renting, not the brick and mortar. The house that sat across the street from ours hosted the great playwright Arthur Miller, and behind us in the little postage stamp cottage built in 1909..other writers have sought refuge. Sullivan’s is well known as the inspiration for the likes of Edgar Allen Poe, and Pat Conroy.

If you do not know these names then perhaps the Holiday Inn would be better suited for your express vacation...

The Owner purchased this house in 1977

Why The Owner chose Charleston Area

Sullivan's Island is indeed a special place. Almost every step you take while visiting on this quaint little respit has some historical significance..it truly is NOT myrtle Beach, nor Destin or South Miami Beach or Hilton Head. It is it's own unique piece of history covered with an ambient heir of Tranquility. It is a place where families can manufacture great memories that will test grandfather time..it is safe and serene..

What makes this house unique

Originally, Sullivan's Island was a waypoint for miscreants. It blossomed into a summer beach retreat for Charlestonians..and now is a place where several generations have called home....ours included.

Please be mindful in your visit of the precious Eco system that comprises our small barrier island, and the robust and burgeoning wildlife at waters edge. Sea Oats are scattered along the beach path as a hideaway for small rabbits, and serve as precious building blocks to prevent erosion. Sea turtles are also native and have visited the 28 station beach in front of our house many times over the years.

Last week I was at the house to put in new carpet, furniture and beds. Sitting quietly on the front porch about 1:30 a.m., I saw something I have never seen in the 35 years at our house..I watched with amazement, 2 small deer in the front yard grazing.

We sincerely hope you and your family enjoy this simple retreat as much as we have these three and half decades....sincerely and without reservation...Mark Miller

Perfect for Families and Friends

  • 5 of 5

The Miller house was absolutely perfect for myself and family to spend a vacation getaway together. We had our wedding ceremony on the beach opposite the house making it the perfect location for my family to stay in. The Millers even had a wonderful gift basket delivered to congratulate us. The beachouse offered more than enough space and amenities for us to cook and socialize. The rooms and house were clean, spacious, and comfortable and provided a cozy atmosphere for us to have a good time and make lasting memories.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I wanted a getaway before the holiday season ended so headed to this great island. Although this home is older there's a feeling of nostalgia, comfort and peace you won't find in many other rentals. It's quaint charm provided easy access to the beach and easy access to the different ammentities on the island. The house was clean with lots of space. The owner Mark Miller was also very accommodating. If looking for a nice place to stay on a great island I highly recommend this home away from home.

Excellent Place to Make Memories

  • 5 of 5

I love this place!!! The home is located on an excellent street, and the beach path is literally feet away from the front yard. Sullivan's Island is hottest spot in the Low Country (in my opinion), and this rental offers my family the only reasonable access to it. The quaint restaurants and the quiet sandy beaches make our vacation a memorable one every year. Today is mine and my wife's anniversary, and the island has really been on my mind today, as it was in that very house that I proposed to my wife! I have never had any issues with any of the homes functionalities. The price is perfect and the location is perfect... What more could you ask for?

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place for a family vacation! When you walk through the door you immediately feel like you are at home. You have everything you need at the end of your finger tips. Large spacious rooms, awesome front porch, and just a minutes walk down the boardwalk to the beach; which is absolutely beautiful and never overly crowded. Down town Charleston is a fifteen drive. Our kids love the outdoor shower and that the park is only a short bike ride away. We are looking forward to our next trip. We will definitely continue making family memories here for many years to come!

Beware of Bed Bugs!

  • 1 of 5

4 days into our family vacation we learned that this place was infested with Bed Bugs!

We learned that this was not the first occurrence and had to leave the property.
