About James Parker

We are local family that enjoy the beach and outdoors. We have a 11 year old and an 14 year old so the home has plenty of kids items. There is a baby crib, high chair, books, games, some beach toys, and generally kid friendly. We purchased this home in 2001 and it has many great memories of raising our first born here. We love the friendly and close nit neighborhood and visit the home whenever there are openings.

James Parker purchased this house in 2001

Why James Parker chose Charleston Area

A long time ago we came across an article in a magazine that talked about Isle of Palms being one of the best places to raise children so after having a wonderful visit- we decided to buy our first home here!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed in our beach cottage and did more work this last week. We are happy to say that we now have a new stainless steel refrigerator, stove, and dishwasher in the kitchen. My husband put a new HDTV in the kitchen while I put fresh new linens in the kitchen cabinets. He threw away some of the older gaming items and videos and replaced with newer electronics. We fixed the handle that was missing from one the trundle beds a well as put a heavy duty curtain rod in the sunroom. By staying here we have found some of the smaller items that needed to be repaired. Somethings looked ok, but then when you actually used them they needed to be repaired or replaced. An example was the can opener looked fine, but then didn't work good so I replaced it. My huband also replaced the playset swings as they were started to get rusty (salt air is rough on items outdoors). He also deleted some older pictures and will be putting up some new ones soon.

Just ok

  • 3 of 5

While we certainly enjoyed being in the Isle of Palms, this house needs some improvement. In the master bathroom, there is a significant crack on the floor such that we had to put a rug or towel over it to prevent the possibility of anyone cutting their foot. In the bathtub area there was adhesive glue left on the wall which is unsightly. The design of the sink area has almost no counter space which is an inconvenience even though there is a wire stand next to it to hold personal items. The hallway bath water temperature never went beyond lukewarm. We were there in July 2017 and I noticed a similar complaint from someone who stayed there in May 2017. I would encourage the owner to have the cleaners do a more thorough deep clean on the floors, the high chair, and the living room furniture. The pool was not cleaned until later in the week which may be due to the pool company's schedule, however, it is disappointing to arrive and see the pool needs cleaning. There were no extra linens or blankets available. This house is conveniently located near the beach, however, it is not a 3 minute walk to the beach unless you normally walk fast. The golf cart was nice to have. This was an expensive house to rent for just being ok.

This property had everything that our family needed for our fourth of July vacation. Loved the location on the island. It provided the quiet and play yard that we needed for the little ones and the game room needed for the big ones. I would recommend this property to anyone.

Great place for a mother/daughter trip!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property! It was the perfect fit for three mothers and their pre-teen daughters. The girls loved the pool and the golf cart. The mom's loved the ample seating, kitchen, and the three comfortable "adult" bedrooms. The beach is really close, and downtown Charleston is a quick drive. We would definately stay here again.

Convenient & fun

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed having the pool and playground for our kids. House has plenty of beds to choose from. Close to the beach, east walk or golf cart ride. Isle of Palms has everything you need within a golf cart ride distance.

My only complaints:

1. Kids room is the sun room, none of the doors lock on the inside where you could keep kids inside. I was worried my very independent 3 yr old would go outside when she woke up in the morning so she ended up sleeping with my husband and I.

2. Needs a deep clean, floors were still gritty/sticky feeling when we arrived, back bedroom comforter was dirty, living room furniture and bar stools could use a good cleaning as well

3. Minimal hot water in hallway bathroom, most of our group had to share the master shower.

Despite these complaints we will definitely keep this house in mind for future (hopefully annual) trips.

Great house for a family get-away!

  • 4 of 5

I would give this a 4.5 if I could...This house is in perfect proximity to the beach (3 blocks) and the golf cart made it quick and easy to get there! The house easily slept all 10 people in our 2 families. Beds were comfortable. Kitchen was perfect, except the refrigerator ice maker made a weird noise and was a little loud. There was plenty to keep both parents and kids occupied. The game room was great for "down time" at the house. The pool was nice, but was dirty when we got there and was not cleaned until the day before we left (there was a lot of sand and dirt at the bottom). Bring bug spray! The mosquitoes were bad in the spring!
