About the property

Hello! THANK YOU for taking a look at our site -- you have made the PERFECT "STOP" -- I guarantee that it is one of the nicest rentals you will find, 5-Star all the way!

Before you get started, I hope you will take a moment to look at our Guest Reviews! These candid comments from our guests will give you a good idea of what you will enjoy during your visit.

**** Also, just to let you know I do rent throughout the holidays.... THANKSGIVING and CHRISTMAS 2017 are available for booking now.. Dates are flexible during those times, so just let me know what days your family would need beyond the usual week stay. We put up lovely trees and tasteful decorations, so the house looks 'magical' for Christmas!! [Or we can decorate for Hanukkah]

WELCOME to 'Ocean's Song'.... 'The Ocean's Song is the music of our souls!'

This is NOT your granny's beach house!! Ocean's Song is a gorgeous 3,800 sq.ft. house (a den is now open in addition to the rooms shown), decorated to reflect the Island/Coastal chic, and yet very comfortable with the 'feel' of a cozy old Isle of Palms beach house, yet it is only 10 years old. High end finishes, granite counters, stainless appliances, hardwood floors throughout, laundry room with new washer and dryer, plus the 'Powder Room' is a full bath as well!!

AND, EVERY BEDROOM HAS IT'S OWN PRIVATE on suite BATH!! This house is designed for the whole family -- children of all ages welcome!!! (We also welcome the four-legged family members as well.)

This home is designed and situated for pool and beach fun! It is beautifully decorated and has every convenience for your stay and yet you will feel comfortable and can 'kick back' and relax!! 'Ocean's Song' is the house you will fall in love with -- where you will want to return year after year!

A few things you will enjoy:

* The entire backyard is a pool [salt water system] area with two levels of decks. Many chairs/chaise lounges and tables make it a great area for entertaining, playing in the pool and sunning! The six burner grill will test Dad's culinary skills.

* The large elevator helps avoid carrying your things up steps, plus it is roomy enough for a wheelchair.

* One block from the beach, it is only a 3 min walk! We have provided beach toys, Boogie boards, Tommy Bahama beach chairs, Beach Buggy, Beach Wagon and Beach umbrellas. Being one block off Palm Blvd. gets you away from the heavy traffic and all of the 'off road' beach parking for the public. You have private parking and no one will be parking in the front yard except you!

* The Isle of Palms Rec Center is just one block away, with tennis courts, gym, fitness center, basketball court, baseball field and lots of play area for your athletes and the youngsters. And there is also a "Dog Park" for your "other" family members!!

* This ten year old house has all the high-end features and appliances you would want -- stainless appliances, french door refrigerator w/ ice and water in door, separate beverage center, oven and warming oven, microwave, gas cook top, Keurig coffee maker and regular coffee maker, plus electric water pot for tea. The kitchen features granite counter tops, two separate sinks, an island and a large outer counter. The kitchen is TOTALLY equipped with EVERYTHING YOU NEED! We also have a separate laundry room with a new heavy duty washer and dryer, plus laundry sink.

* You will like the luxury of the Biltmore Estate sheets and towels, as well as Pine Cone Hill bed skirts. Luggage racks, hair dryers and hand/full length mirrors are provided. Each bedroom is beautifully appointed [with numerous sleeping pillows!] and ready for you to relax at the end of a fun-filled day!

* Ocean's Song has an inverted floor plan. GROUND LEVEL is the garage area where there is a Ping Pong Table, shower and various toys, plus the sliding glass doors out to the pool area. The FIRST level has four bedrooms, each with its own bath. There is also a laundry room on that level. The SECOND level has the MBR, OPEN kitchen, dining area and great room. Also a screened porch. The THIRD level has no living area, but has furniture for you to sit and relax while you enjoy looking out at the view [ocean in distance] and sunsets!

* Almost forgot to mention the 'tellies' -- 60' HD TV with sound bar and Blu-Ray player in the Great Room, 51' HD TV and Blu-Ray player in MBR, and 40' TV's in all of the other BR's. Also high speed WI-FI

* There is more, but we hope you get the idea!! Some other features are listed below and we will also be glad to answer any questions you may have.

We purchased, decorated and appointed this home to be our own personal winter home.... We are delighted to share it and HOPE YOU ENJOY IT AS MUCH AS WE DO!!

*** BOOKING NOW FOR FALL/WINTER 2017

*** 2017-- Weeks still available in MAY/SEP/OCT/Thanksgiving/Christmas/NewYear's.

*** CHRISTMAS 2017 still available, please contact me for photos from last year. Spending Christmas at Ocean's Song with your family will be 'magical'.... I decorate the house very tastefully with gorgeous trees, outside lights, etc.... you will absolutely love it!! [Or as I mentioned earlier we can decorate for Hanukkah.]

I look forward to hearing from you.... YOU WILL LOVE "OCEAN'S SONG" !!

About Linda Letson

Hello! My husband, Bill, and I purchased Ocean's Song in 2012. We currently live in Denver, CO, having moved there from Ohio, to be closer to our family. Bill is a lawyer and still practices part-time from home. I am a retired executive from Trans World Airlines and now manage Ocean's Song full-time.

We are keeping very busy in retirement. Bill spends his free time playing golf and bridge, fly fishing, keeping up with his old Harvard buddies and constantly studying the stock market! My free time is spent managing Ocean's Song, watercolor painting, taking photos and planning my next decorating/rehab project!!!

We fell in love with the Isle of Palms and Charleston when we first visited back in 2002 -- since that time we have continued to spend 3 months here every winter and are now extending that time to 6 months.

Although not a professional decorator, decorating is my passion!! Ocean's Song is my biggest project, to date -- I had previously rehab'd and decorated a lovely 1920's house on the waterfront of Lake Erie. "Summer Hill Cottage", was featured in Lake Erie Living magazine as one of the '"Top Ten Rentals on Lake Erie'". that included PA, NY, MI & CANADA!!

Bill and I also "flipped'"a bungalow in Charleston that was featured on the HGTV program, 'Buy or Rent' [Season 1, episode 12]

AND this past August, I purchased and rehab'd a "Fishing Cabin" in the mountains of Lake George, CO, right in the heart of Colorado's fishing country with private and Gold Medal waters and lakes AND HUGE trout and northern pike!! So we look forward to the 2017 fishing season! If you, like to fish, let me know, as I will be renting this cute cabin for summer 2017. Only 2BR and 1 BA, but soooo cute, cozy and BEAUTIFULLY decorated!!

Thank you for taking time to read this... we look forward to hearing from you.

Warmest regards, Linda and Bill Letson

Linda Letson purchased this house in 2012

Why Linda Letson chose Charleston Area

Location, Location, Location!!! One short block to the beach and one short block to the Isle of Palms Rec. Center**!! AND 20 min to downtown Charleston and 25 minutes to Charleston International Airport. ** The Isle of Palms [IOP] Rec Center is one block away and has a gym, exercise room, outdoor tennis, basketball, baseball and soccer courts, and a playground area for smaller children. There is also a fenced Dog Park, with separate areas for large and small dogs.

What makes this house unique

As owners, we care VERY MUCH about our guests!! We personally manage every detail -- very much UNLIKE a professional "Rental Agency"!!

This is reflected in the wonderful amenities in the house and the overall décor! In renting Ocean's Song, you will arrive to a SPOTLESSLY clean home with everything ready you for your visit!!! We 'micro manage' the home to ensure that things are as lovely as possible, and that you have the supplies you need for your stay -- you will not have to purchase anything extra, it is all there, plus many extras!!

And if any problems should arise, I am available by phone 24/7... I have an entire crew of professionals who can handle any situation/problem, within a few hours!! So..... no need to worry that we are in Denver.... you, and your problem, are never more than a call away!!

*** I hope you will take a few minutes to read our "Guest Reviews"..... they give you very clear picture of what you will experience at Ocean's Song.

We look forward to your visit!!

Beautiful home!

  • 4 of 5

Ocean's Song was probably the most organized, well-equipped home we have ever rented for a vacation. The decor was beautiful, and everything you could possibly need for a week at the beach was provided. We actually brought too much from home! Although the pool is small, the shade provided from trees around the pool was great, and our kids loved it. The walk to the beach was about two blocks, but unfortunately, the closest beach access path to the house is through a marshy, grass path that was full of mosquitoes. We all came back with bites every time we went to the beach. The house itself deserves 5 stars, but I think next time, I will look for a beach front or beach view location, because I would prefer sitting on a porch looking at the ocean, rather than the house across the street. The owner, Linda Letson, was great to work with, but I understand that the house has been sold to new owners.

Owner's Response: I certainly appreciate all of your wonderful comments/compliments about the house and for saying it deserved a 5 STAR rating! Sorry the mosquitoes were so bad out on the beach path, but at Ocean's Song the pool and deck areas are regularly sprayed so our guests are comfortable and no one has ever mentioned a problem at the house. No doubt an "oceanfront" house would offer nicer views and will certainly be a special treat for your family next year. YES, we did officially sell the house.... the new owners, Martha and William Sowers, and Shannon and Mike Pleasant, are fabulous!! They are very committed to continuing the excellent reputation of Ocean's Song and providing guests with a 5 Star Experience!! We are working together to ensure a smooth transition -- I will continued to manage the property for at least this season and remain as a consultant. There will be NO management company, the Sowers/Pleasants are going to manage the property just as I have so they can GUARANTEE that all present and future guests will experience the same level of EXCELLENCE, CLEANLINESS & OUTSTANDING AMENITIES! Thank you for your review and have a good summer! Best regards, Linda

Beautiful location! Highly recommend!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 11 people (including 2 little kids) LOVED our vacation at "Ocean's Song"! The house is absolutely amazing with enough space for everyone to be together and yet have their time alone. Our FAVORITE spot was the screened in porch on the 2nd floor. We spent so much time out there playing games, reading, laughing and just talking about everything! Sitting on the porch at night, listening to the rain.....it was so relaxing. Linda had everything labeled as to where it went and prior to our arrival, she sent us very detailed information about the area, places to eat & visit. She helped make our vacation so memorable!! My family is thinking of doing this again next year we had so much fun. I'd recommend "Ocean's Song" to anyone.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Everyone in our family loved their accommodations at Ocean Song. We all had our own room and bathroom and all the beds were extremely comfortable. That is most important.

The owner was so welcoming to us and we had everything we needed in the house. Great linens, lots of beach towels and beach chairs.

We just had a wonderful week and made lots of fun family memories. This is a five star plus property. The home was beautifully decorated too!

PERFECT Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 40th Anniversary at Ocean's Song with our entire family.

There were 10 adults and one grandbaby. The house was absolutely PERFECT. The attention to all the little details was amazing. Lots of space for all to enjoy. Everything you need is there. The kitchen is fully stocked. The decor of the home is amazing.Everyone having their own bedroom and bathroom was so nice. The beach is right there, and the pool in the back was so nice to enjoy in the evenings. Close enough to Charleston to explore, but honestly it's so nice at the house you hate to leave it! The very top deck was the perfect spot to sit in the evening with a glass of wine, or in the morning with coffee. It 's a great view with a nice breeze. None of us wanted to leave.
