Isle of Palms House Rental Photos and Description

House, 7 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 16)

Spectacular absolutely oceanfront, 5,000 square foot home with 3 masters, elevator, high speed internet, multiple TVs, 3 sundecks, library, piano, gourmet kitchen with new state of the art appliances, sun room, entertainment center, outside shower, new gas BBQ, three car garage. Re-decorated this past year. Rates higher for holidays. Non smoking. (SAT-SAT rental from Memorial Day to Labor Day)

I had this home built and it was my personal residence until I built on the next Island. It is my only rental house so it is lovingly cared for. I chose the lot because it is close enough to walk to bars and restaurants, but far enough away so you don't get any crowd on your stretch of perfect beach.

About Mark Reinhardt

I moved to Isle of Palms from Minnesota (Brrrr) and found the ideal lot on which to build this home. My family and I lived there until we moved to the next island, Sullivans. My office is still in Minnesota, and I commute every other week or so. I always look forward to returning to the beautiful 'Low Country' of South Carolina!

Why Mark Reinhardt chose Charleston Area

I have used VRBO around the world, and this is one of the best vacation rentals I have ever seen. It is my only vacation rental, so it is my 'baby', and tenderly cared for.

What makes this house unique

This home is in the heart of 'Millionaire's Row' one of the best beaches in the country. You can walk to restaurants, live music, lively night clubs, or just watch the waves from the porch. Any way you cut it, this will be a vacation to remember!

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My family of 17, a mixture of grandparents, their adult kids and their young adult and soon to be adult grandchildren had a fabulous vacation at "L'Etoile Du Sud". Our extended family has enjoyed beach vacations on the East Coast for the past 20 years, with the past 3 years at Isle of Palms. We have returned to Isle of Palms because there are no crowds, no traffic in the area, there is very easy access to grocery store (minutes), the Charleston Airport is very close, and the City of Charleston is just 20 minutes away for hours or days of adventure. There is so much to do in the Isle of Palms area and this beach is the most beautiful I have seen on the East Coast.

This year we had a wonderful time at this vacation home. The owner Mark was very attentive and offered many suggestions for things to do in the area. He also was very attentive to the home and clearly let us know that if there were any issues we could call him anytime.

Our family loved this home as it is quite special with original artwork, a piano, and a unique floor plan. We enjoyed the up to date appliances, including large stainless fridge, brand new dishwasher, top of the line washer and dryer, and brand new separate ice maker in the living room area. We did not lack for anything in the kitchen, there were plenty of plates, silverware, utensils, etc., everything we needed. The dining table is the best ever. All 17 of us could sit together at one table each night. The adjacent living room has 3 leather couches where we watched the Olympic games many nights.

We enjoyed the media room off of the kitchen on the street side of the house and the large outdoor deck extending from this room with lots of seating and a brand new propane grill. This area was really a bonus that we haven't seen in other homes.

Also, the upstairs has a library area with a built in ironing board and an adjacent laundry room. The library area was also a nice buffer area, providing extra space.

The front decks were great, lots of sun even in the late afternoon when many IOP houses are shaded in the ocean side.

The shower and the toilet under the house were great during a day at the beach. Another bonus.

This Oceanfront Beach rental appears to have been enjoyed by many, well loved, and well maintained. It was perfect for our vacation this year. We hope to return again!

Owner's Response: Well, thank you! I had just added a number of new appliances, and I'm glad you enjoyed them. I know you have requested a week for next summer, and you will be even more impressed with the changes I am planning! Thanks again.

Retirement Ceremony

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a large extended family stay. Plenty of room to get away from each other or to get together with one another. I can't say enough nice things about the owner. Very responsive and wonderful to work with. Perfect place for children of all ages. House is fully furnished and has many nice extras. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.

Birthday Weekend for extended Family

  • 5 of 5

We organized a long weekend in February for my husband's family to celebrate his mother's 80th birthday. We had family from SC, NC, VA and AZ coming in - 17 of us total - ages 12 - 80. The house was large enough for everyone to have their own space and not be on top of each other. This was great since mother nature decided to give us a cool, damp weekend :-).

The seven bedrooms were plenty for our crew. The twin beds with the loft housed all the younger boys in the group. They had a great time! The setup of one bedroom has the entrance either through the bathroom (shared) or another bedroom, but since we were all family, we worked that out just fine.

The owner had left a nice welcome packet that included nearby restaurants and coupons. He also left a nice welcome gift of a bottle of wine and coffee. It was a nice touch. He called day 1 to be sure we were in and getting settled and gave a recommendation for Benny Palmetto's pizza, since we had decided that was going to be our first night's dinner. It was fabulous pizza and we had a coupon! They are 28 inch pizza's, so really large! We got 4 and that fed us for dinner and lunch the next day. We hired "Pit Cru" to cater the second night's festivities. They did an excellent job and that set us up for leftovers for Sunday night.

Several enjoyed walks on the beach, even in the blustery weather. The house is right on the beach and a nice boardwalk gets you from the house directly to the beach. There are steps involved. The house itself has an elevator, which made luggage transportation easy. The kitchen was large with plenty of counter space. There are two large living areas, both with TVs. As mentioned, plenty of room for everyone to spread out.

It was an easy drive into downtown Charleston for a little sightseeing. We didn't get out since the weather was so chilly, but it was nice to drive around Rainbow Row and the battery.

It was a fantastic stay and we truly enjoyed it! Thanks Mark!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you could use the coupon for Benny's Palmetto Pizza! I'm trying to get more and more local merchants to give my guests a "deal" ! Sorry about the rain - it has been the wettest fall and winter in the 25 years I've lived here. But things are drying up. Come back!

My friends and I enjoyed our stay in your beach home very much. The house is spacious and comfortable with everything we could need at our disposal. Sometimes rentals are decked in high end decor and finishes but lack the comfort that is appreciated for a fun weekend get together. This house has enough decor to be interesting and the comfort to make everyone feel at home and at ease. Thanks for your help with everything Mark.

Owner's Response: Donna, Thank you for your review. I try to keep the house interesting with original art, games, and beach sports equipment, and things like a library stocked with "beach" books, and the piano. I really am pleased that my efforts are appreciated. I keep adding things, so when you come back there will be even more!
