Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Beautiful two-bedroom oceanfront cottage apartment with unbelievable second floor views and next-door to historic Fort Moultrie.

This is the best small vacation spot you'll find. The views from the second floor porch, bedroom and living area are unbelievable. The historic Fort Moultrie property and a large maritime forest extend for over a mile up the beach making for a seemingly deserted island during walks and runs. We have a birds-eye view of every boat that passes through the harbor whether it's a cruise ship, sailing ketch or shrimp boat.

Fishing out front is good and you're almost always guaranteed to see lots of bottle-nose dolphins. Swimming right of the rock jetty is good as we have a gentle slope with small, lapping waves.

You can walk up the beach in the morning to watch the sunrise over the ocean and then sit out front in our Adirondack chairs to see spectacular sunsets over the harbor and the steeples of old Charleston.

Our place is a 100 year-old Southern beach cottage that was built to house Army Corps nurses prior to WWI. While totally updated and in great condition, we've made sure to preserve the old beach cottage charm. It's wonderfully decorated but is all about comfort.

We have lots of books for reading and napping. Much to our chagrin, we also have wireless internet, cable, DVD and an iPod ready CD player. We are literally next door to historic Fort Moultrie that is now a very uncrowded National Park but played an integral role in the Revolutionary War, Civil War, WWI and WWII.

Sullivan's Island is not a tourist town. It is a beautiful and quaint village island. It's mostly made up of full time residents. It is very safe and family friendly. You can bicycle down to the town center for great restaurants with outdoor dining, playgrounds, tennis, basketball, beach volleyball, galleries and a small grocery store. Lots of folks think of Sullivan's Island as 'Mayberry by the Sea'.

Fantastic ocean view

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! Amazing views from bedroom, great porch, easy beach access. All my family and friends who live on the island took the info to recommend to their friends. Look forward to staying on my next visit home.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing time at this property. It was the perfect size for me and my husband, and we loved being able to bring our dog! The beach outside the condo is beautiful and we enjoyed riding bikes to the restaurants on Sullivan's. Keith was a gracious host and we will certainly be back in the future!

Spectacular location and views

  • 5 of 5

Our stay on SI was truly fantastic! We love the very laid back vibe of this area. You can spend your days on a beach that is not even remotely crowded, dine at wonderful restaurants or drive into Mount Pleasent or Charleston for food and fun. The view from Keith's condo is absolutely divine, including the lighthouse, Fort Sumpter, dolphins and Charleston all in the distance. We would recommend trimming the palm trees just a tad to open up the view, but it's still fabulous!

Keith is very nice and willing to help in any way to make one's stay enjoyable!

We were so sad to leave this little piece of perserved paradise that we left behind a bag of souvenirs. Keith located the items and mailed them to us! Above and beyond kindness! Just can't say enough about how much we loved our time on the island and plan to return!

The only other recommendation would be to update the appliances, other than that we found the accommodations cozy and comfortable! Thank you for a wonderful vacation and we look forward to returning next year! Blessings!

Charming, Eclectic Beach House

  • 4 of 5

Loved this quirky, warm, and welcoming waterfront rental. Walls are filled with charming art, mostly related to the area. Great little touches (flashlight, sugar packets, salt & pepper, spices, a quilt to cover up with, clothes line & clothes pins--for wet suits, etc.) along with lots of comfy seating, great furniture on the porch, and the wonderful Adirondack chairs on the dunes. The place is over 100 years old so it's painted floors are a little slanted, it's windows won't open, and wind whistles in the front door. I loved the character it brings to the unit. My handy-man husband saw projects he'd like to fix! This is a second floor unit so the views are terrific. The climb up the steps may be a little tough on retired seniors.
