My grandmother convinced my father to buy the house in 1964 from an old girlfriend who was trying to raise money to get her manuscripts published. The "ex"? She wrote the NY Times bestseller "Charleston" and went on to be selected by Margaret Mitchell's heirs to write the sequel to "Gone With the Wind"! We have pictures of the house and beach at different periods of our family's involvement. Everyone who enters breathes a sigh of relaxation because of the beautiful views and open layout that invites the constant breeze and sea air. We have retained all of the charming and necessary features for full beach enjoyment such as a large porch looking out over the ocean with a comfortable sofa and chairs, a porch dining table with six chairs and room for more, and a hard to resist hammock. In addition, we have provided modern amenities such as Keurig cofee/cocoa/tea maker, wireless internet, Dish Satellite, Flat Screen TVs and DVD players. There are two additional televisions with DVD players in two bedrooms. Of course there is central heating and air.
Our favorite spots are the swing on the beach side, the lounge chairs on the deck that face the beach, and the dune deck that allows you to perch above the rest of the beach goers and watch the surfers and ships. The full kitchen with gas stove, gas grill, and dining room make it so you never have to leave this great spot to eat. However, there are fabulous restaurants on the Isle of Palms, Sullivans Island and downtown. It is a five-minute drive to Target and Towne Center, where there are boutiques, a movie theater, a Lowes, and a department store. There are dozens of highly rated golf courses within a 20-mile radius. All of the bedrooms have ceiling fans, blinds, functioning windows and screens to allow for the refreshing sea breeze. The HVAC is brand new. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, charming tile bathroom, two closets, and t.v. and DVD player. The other two bedrooms on the main floor, twin and queen, have built-in dressers and full closets, and share a bathroom with shower and tub. The first floor bedroom has twin beds, its own bathroom, and two showers adjacent to it. Downstairs is another den with TV and a futon/bunk bed perfect hang out for teens!

About Devon Hanahan
This is a family house. We enjoy it with children and cousins of multiple ages, and there is something for everyone. We live in Charleston and use the house when we can, so it is kept in prime condition and we have rented the house for more than 30 years, so we know what needs to be done to create a positive experience for renters. We are in the process of passing the house to our sons for estate planning purposes and to continue the tradition, thereby preserving the house for the family for a third generation, and more, we hope!
Devon Hanahan purchased this House in 1964
Why Devon Hanahan chose Isle of Palms
The Isle of Palms is a safe, welcoming, and supportive community. You can walk to the grocery store, post office, restaurants, ice cream, and seafood store. The playground is in walking distance and has tennis courts, a basketball court, gym, soccer, football, and baseball fields. The public park with lifeguards is within sight of our house.
What makes this House unique
We are located in between two of the public access paths, so we are away from the crowds! This is the best surfing area on the beach- the best break is just the to the left of our dune path. We have a full beach and do not experience erosion problems since we are in the middle of the island. We love to look for loggerhead turtle nests and have witnessed both the laying and hatching of eggs and do a lot of running and biking on the beach and on the bike path on the marsh side of the island. All of our friends (even the ones who live here on the Island!) love to come to this house to go to the beach!

What a memorable week!
Our family get-together was wonderful and relaxing in this charming house. The pictures don't tell the whole story--the furniture is lovely, the kitchen is well stocked, the house was very clean and well maintained, and the location is perfect. Beach access is easy, and the dune deck is a great place to sit above the activity and watch people from your own private perch. We enjoyed being able to see the big cargo ships and cruise liners going by without even leaving the screen porch. The owners are terrific communicators who obviously care about their renters being satisfied. We will be back!
This was the beach house of my youth, large rooms, warm wood walls very comfortable
The house is what I remember from my youth, very warm and comfortable. The living room and screen porch have spectacular views of the ocean, I sat every morning with coffee and watched the sunrise.
The deck on the dunes was in a little weathered but overall my family loved the time we spent in IOP.
This is a wonderful beachfront property, I would go back in a heartbeat. The owners have done a great job of keeping the house feel like a beach house, rather than a mcmansion on the beach.
Laid back island home. Location second to none !
Perfect location. Beachfront ! Owners so very accommodating and easy to work with. I would recommend this house highly to those looking for a laid-back classic beach getaway
The perfect spot!
This was such a perfect cozy beach house! There was an awesome screened porch on the back with plenty of seating that was a favorite every morning and night to sit and enjoy the beautiful view! We had the best time!
Thank you! I'm so glad y'all had fun, and thank you for taking care of the house! Come back! ☺
