Charleston Area House Rental Photos and Description

House, 7 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 7-17)

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, sunroom, entertainment center, outside shower, built-in 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 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!

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.

Cousins' Reunion

We loved the house, the view, and the proximity to good local restaurants and Charleston. The owner, Mark, was very helpful and responsive.

We will definitely consider renting here again.

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!

Surprise Birthday Beach Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I selected this property for my sister's surprise birthday family weekend. The house was exactly as advertised and exceeded our expectations. We had a group of 12 adults and 3 children. The layout of the house, number of bedrooms and bathrooms was perfect for our large family. The dining room table seated us all and the kitchen was well equipped with cooking utensils, dishes and appliances. The owner followed up with me after arrival to make sure our needs were met and left us wine, snacks and local info regarding restaurants, shopping and attractions. My favorite place was the front porch area. The ocean front view and easy access to the most beautiful stretch of beach was amazing. I would definitely return for another stay.

Owner's Response: Wow! Thanks for the great review. This year has been very good, and the weather is still mild - 60's for New Years Day. I'm so glad my guests like the house updates - new floors, mattresses, tables, etc.

Incredible Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

My family spent the entire week of thanksgiving here and it was perfect. Very nice, clean, with great views of the ocean. The layout was perfect and allowed for the kids to have a place to play and watch tv and allowed the same for the grownups. Plenty of kitchen space to cook thanksgiving dinner for 12 people and large enough table to accommodate all of us sitting down and eating together. Definitely will use again for our thanksgiving trip!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. I actually had that table built in the dining room because it is so large - It can seat 14!
