John and Lisa McGorty purchased this house in 2011

Why John and Lisa McGorty chose Charleston Area

In past summers, our family vacationed in Wild Dunes and the Ocean Point area and fell in love with it. We were captivated by the beautiful serene beaches, and immediately enamored by the charm of 29 Ocean Point and the enclave in which it resides. We also love its close vicinity to Charleston. This wonderful, historical city is a great destination for food lovers and history buffs. Over the past few years, we have tried many of the restaurants and have never had a bad meal. The horse and carriage rides are fun and entertaining for all ages.

Absolutely Amazing Beach House - Ideal for Families

  • 5 of 5

We had a recent family trip (7 adults, one child) and stayed at this beautiful house, it was excellent start to finish. The owners were a breeze to work with and touchbased with us multiple times prior and during the trip. The house is in an ideal spot, a gated community within an a gated resort, which was an added bonus. Beach access, pool access, water toys, beach chairs, marina bars and live music within the resort, everything you need to relax on a beach vacation!

We made the trip to Charleston and Sullivan's Island multiple times throughout the week, the house was the perfect distance to downtown Charleston and back to relaxation by the water.

All in all, an excellent stay at this property and would definitely come back. Highly recommend.

All in all, an absolutely wonderful trip

Loved our stay here!

  • 5 of 5

This Ocean Point is a wonderful place to stay! The owner was easy to work with and she even checked in during our stay there. The house was very clean and inviting. There was so much space for everyone to hang out (either together, or to kick back in different areas of the house). Lot's of outdoor space to sit and enjoy the beautiful weather. The kitchen had everything we needed.

There were a bunch of pool toys and beach toys for the kids (or adults, too!). We had a great time at the pool and the beach, both were so close and easy to get to from the house. We had two kids (2 and 1) with us and it was still super easy to get away to get some swimming in each day.

The community is nice, well kept and there are a lot of people around. We didn't explore community a lot, but it seemed like there were some things to do there.

There were some good restaurants nearby and a grocery store and a Target were pretty close, too. The neighborhood was so nice.

It is a pretty easy drive over to Charleston, we made a trip out there several times. There is a lot to do in the area, too.

Laundry was available for us to use, which was great. It was a little tricky to find at first but we figured it out.

We'd highly recommend staying at this house, we think that you're really going to have a wonderful trip by doing so.

Plenty of room to play!

  • 4 of 5

My family was celebrating a double graduation and wanted to spend a little quality time together - what a perfect house to do just that!

SO close to the beach and a wonderful outside porch to just sit and talk and enjoy the sea breeze! There was also plenty of room to spread out if you wanted a little privacy. The younger guys hung out on the main floor and the rest of us on the upper floor. We ate most our meals in house and the kitchen had everything we could ask for! The elevator was perfect for transporting my 84 year old Mom up and down the house. One of the reasons I chose this home was because the bikes were included as well as beach chairs. We did not use the chairs but enjoyed not having to haul so much stuff with us to the beach! Short walk to the beach and since it is a private beach no crowds to battle. The owners both called to check on us to see if everything was going well. How great to have attentive owners to our needs...cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed our time here!

August 2014 Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter, 2 sons, daughter in law, 6 month old grandson and son's girlfriend had a wonderful stay in this house. Master bedrooms and living areas on two floors made this house perfect for our group. House and setting are beautiful and proximity to Ocean Pointe's private beach and pool were great. The house had everything we needed to cook meals and location made for an easy drive to Charleston. Also liked the short drive to Sullivan's Island that has a nice restaurant district. Owners were great to work with.

All around great experience

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a week at this beautiful Ilse of Palm residence and enjoyed every minute. We had 7 adults and 2 kids and the house has more than enough space for everyone. Having two big living areas and multiple porches really opens up the space to accomodate a large group and makes for nice evenings sitting outside together. The house is located on a cul de sac right by the pool (which is beautiful and convenient) and about a half block from the beach access road. We spent most mornings walking on the beach and truly loved the location.

It has all of the conveniences of home - laundry facilities, extra towels, sheets, pillows, kitchen with an array of appliances and cooking utensils, a grill, bikes (which are great for riding all throughout wild dunes), beach chairs, sand toys, boogie boards, etc.

We had such a great time and really enjoyed everthing this property had to offer. We were even able to bring my 87 year old grandmother because of the convenience of the elevator.

Lisa made the rental process extremely easy and we especially loved the neighborhood of this property and being within the Wild Dunes complex.

A few pointers:

- The beach by the house is gorgeous, but for my young children who love riding the waves, we drove to the public Ilse of Palm beach a few miles down (there are better waves!)

- Given all there is to do in Charleston, Sullivan's Island, etc, I would recommend renting a car

- This is a great house for people who want to cook and hang out together - we cooked and ate at the house multiple times and were really happy with all of the amenities (coffee machine, big fridge, pots/pans, etc)

- Book reservations and golf well in advance of the trip. There are some great places in Charleston and surrounding areas but you need to get a headstart on booking for large parties.

Thanks again Lisa. We will definitely be back!
