About the property

Ground Floor Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4), Large Screened Porches

Welcome to 'Seaglass Serenity'... Incredible location.... Beachfront at the mouth of Charleston Harbor, this charming ground floor condominium has views of both the Atlantic Ocean and Charleston Harbor.

The wide sandy beach is ideal for sunbathing, swimming, fishing, or launching small sailboats. The National Park Service and the Town of Sullivan's Island maintain over a mile of undeveloped, protected beach and maritime forest adjacent to the property where you can have undisturbed strolls on the beach. The condo is immediately next door to Fort Moultrie, a National Historic Site with museum and tours, that played significant roles in both the Revolutionary War and Civil War. Fort Sumter, site of the first conflict of the Civil War, can be seen across the harbor. The main channel into Charleston lies nearby, allowing clear views of every ship passing into or out of the harbor. Dolphins play just off shore.

This condo is one of four individually owned units that were originally built as Army Nurse's quarters circa 1910, and are the only vacation rental beachfront condominiums on Sullivan's Island. This unique historic property preserves the charm of the hundred year old structure, but this unit has been renovated and professionally decorated to appeal to today's traveler. The condominium features large front and back screened porches with ceiling fans, rocking chairs, swing, and dining area. The remodeled back porch features a Charleston Bed Swing. Inside, the original hardwood floors give the condominium the feel of an old Southern beach cottage, while providing all modern amenities including flat panel HDTVs (2), stereo with iPod dock, and Wi-Fi. The ground floor location allows easy access with parking only a few steps away. The condo has two bedrooms with the beach-side bedroom having a queen bed, while the rear bedroom has two singles.

Sullivan's Island provides a location that is quiet, uncrowded, with a very relaxed lifestyle. There is not a single traffic light on the island. The island is primarily residential; yet it has several excellent restaurants, post office, library, art gallery, and small grocery store within a mile of the condo. The three mile long island is perfect for exploring by bicycle or golf cart. Public tennis courts and playground are just down the street. One of the beauties of this quiet oceanfront paradise is that it is only a 15 minute drive from historic downtown Charleston and even closer to the shopping and dining areas of Mount Pleasant.

*This is a Saturday-Saturday, weekly only, rental from 5/16/15 to 8/29/15; 3 night minimum in off season. *

About Laura Wall

We are a family of four from Atlanta who have been vacationing in the Charleston area and South Carolina Low Country for many years. We have come to enjoy the Charleston area best of all. We find the combination of Southern Charm, history, shopping, and excellent food compelling. Now that we have an anchor at Sullivan's Island, we are happy to share the beautiful, quiet beach; access to wonderful local restaurants -- especially seafood; friendly locals; historic Ft. Moultrie, Ft. Sumter (viewed from our condo), the beautiful ships coming into Charleston Harbor; and historic, authentic, Charleston!

Laura Wall purchased this condo in 2008

Why Laura Wall chose Charleston Area

We wanted a beachfront location that was free of crowds, quiet and relaxing, yet close to excellent dining and entertainment. We enjoy the history of Charleston from the old rice plantations to the fine pre-revolutionary city homes. Charleston has a grace and charm that few American cities possess. From the performances of the Spoleto Festival, the excellent antique shopping, the tours of historic sites, to the Shrimp boats and fishing charters on Shem Creek, Charleston captivates. Sullivan's Island provides easy access to all this, but seems a world away from the bustle.

What makes this condo unique

This is an extremely relaxing location, beachfront at the Charleston harbor entrance where dolphins play, and you get close up views of all the ships entering the harbor. The island is perfect for bicycle riding, has several excellent restaurants within a mile, and is loaded with history. Outdoor activities abound, from deep sea fishing, to wildlife tours of the salt march, to excellent golf on nearby Isle of Palms.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is our first time in the quaint Sullivan's Island. Your cottage fits in perfectly.

It takes us back in time, growing up, going to the coast of North Carolina. Being here - watching the cargo, cruise, and fishing boats - dolphins, seagulls - makes us long for that time again.

You have truly created such an inviting and well cared for place. The porch swings are such a bonus - the new sheets and comforter - the very adequate kitchen - made us want for nothing.

We wondered as we sat on the swings what so many topics have been discussed over the last 100 years here.

We want to come back when you are available and bring our 92 year old father - this would be perfect.

Best of the old, New and Whimsical!

  • 5 of 5

The owners have created the best of the old, new and whimsical in their remodeling of this old historic home on Sullivans Island! Comfortable and inviting accommodation! Watching the ships go by and the incredible sunsets ( courtesy of God) were added bonuses to make a wonderful weekend stay!

Exactly as described. Quier, great views, particularly of the sunset.

  • 4 of 5

We would highly recommend this property for rental. It was as described and more. As well as the standard towels, linens etc , there were also beach towels, chairs and other little items one might have if it was one's own place. There was also a selection of condiments for our use should we have needed them. This, as many who use self catering know, is a big help.

The weather was very mixed but we were very comfortable in the condo.

Overall there was a very welcoming feel and we would certainly return if we were in S.C again.

Location and Comfort

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Seaglass Serenity on Sullivan's Island for two Thaksgivings, now. We couldn't be happier. The place is beautifully decorated, and the owners even include the use of beach chairs and towels. Of course, all you need to do is walk 50 steps to the Adirondack chairs to enjoy a beverage and watch the dolphins and sunset. Town is just a mile away, if that, and has a variety of restaurants. Charleston is just a 10-15 minute drive over the bridge. And, of course, the beach is your neighbor. We took long walks, and met many, many friendly folks and wonderful friendly dogs!

A little slice of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I rented this lovely condo to celebrate her retirement and for me to have my first vacation in five years. We were there in early November but the weather was beautiful. We had cool nights and mornings but were able to sit on the beach and sun ourselves each day. The home is decorated beautifully with strong attention given to the needs of the guests. Laura Wall and her husband are very attentive owners and answered our questions quickly and thoroughly. I could not have asked for a better experience. After dinner each evening we would sit on the screened in porch overlooking the water and talk for hours sipping wine and watching the ships go by. The sunsets were AH-Mazing! The beds were comfortable with high quality linens and the bathroom was "spa-like". I give this home, and its owners the highest rating possible. Thank you for sharing your little slice of paradise with us! We hope to be back to Seaglass Serenity one day! Cathy Catron, Greensboro, NC.
