About Sue Dostal

If you love the outdoors as I do, you too will fall in love with Seabrook. My family and I have been coming down to South Carolina for many years and with each visit, we find something new and exciting on the island itself or in nearby Charleston. Seabrook Island is a unique community with a vibrant and wide variety of wildlife, over 3 miles of pristine sandy beaches, and the best bike riding in the area. Charleston has been ranked the friendliest city to visit by Conde Nast 4 years running. Known as the 'low country' of South Carolina Seabrook Island reflects the best of the South, with stately moss covered Live Oak trees lining your approach that add to that sultry, laid-back southern charm! We know you will enjoy your stay!

Sue Dostal purchased this villa in 1978

Why Sue Dostal chose South Carolina

This villa is our home and you will find it uniquely furnished to ensure comfort and convenience for you and your guests. The kitchen is well stocked with spices & condiments, beach towels, beach carts, grills and all you will need for that special picnic on the beach. We've got games, a TV in the three seasons porch and plenty of room for entertaining. And if you're lucky, you'll be rewarded with a glimpse of our local island deer seen from the porch at dusk enjoying their evening meal. And if you like birding, you'll love sightings of our local Painted Buntings!

What makes this villa unique

AMENITY CARDS ARE INCLUDED in our rental fees, which give you access to our golf courses, to the Club's fine restaurants, our local Seabrook Shoppe, horse trail rides on the beach, tennis and our Lake House fitness center with indoor and outdoor pools. Our 'home away from home' villa is an easily accessible ground level unit with all rooms on one floor. The large screened sunroom porch has been enclosed for additional year-round living space. The near perfect year round weather permits maximum use of the many island amenities including golf, tennis, horse-back riding, swimming, and biking.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I can't wait to get back to Seabrook. I am putting the check in the mail tomorrow. ..

The new activities look like fun... This year we plan on getting to the lake house. We have never been . I am longing for the lobster food trucks. That was my favorite meal last year. We especially enjoy the amenities card. I get up early and grab two chairs near the ocean... It is a perfect spot for a beach vacation.

Every year staying at your lovely home is a highlight of my year. You have made it such a delightful and welcoming place. I love the location and that it is not right on the beach. We never hear our neighbors. It is so peaceful with the deer and the lovely view in the back. We beach in the day time and rest in the evening. It is a perfect world.

Thank you again.

A hidden treasure- wonderful location, great amenities, prompt owner customer service, ample space

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in our home away from home for 2 weeks. We definitely hope to return and would recommend staying at this property to our friends and family! Sue was a pleasure to coordinate with! She was very quick in her responses, accommodating to our needs, helpful in requests for information of bike rentals and things to do. The amenities of the unit felt as though you were in your own home. Seabrook restaurant Pelican Nest had excellent food and views. The amenity card with access to the pool and restaurant was helpful and we think "a must have" when staying on Seabrook Island. The location was excellent for access to all that Seabrook Island offers. The location was also close enough to Charleston so we could drive there to enjoy what they have to offer! We enjoyed tours of the USS Yorktown, Fort Sumter, Civil War and slavery tours, ghost tours and market street shopping. We hope to make Sue's house a regular vacation spot for years to come.

Great villa on a beautiful island

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent a week at Seabrook. This villa was perfect for us. Plenty of room. Great location - quiet, easy bike ride to beach club. Everything we needed for a fun week was right there. The kitchen was well stocked. Beach towels, chairs, a small grill - all provided. My favorite room was the sun porch. Perfect spot for a morning cup of coffee or an afternoon nap.

Wonderful visit to island

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the villa. Everything needed was available. Perfect size for us. Great communication from the owner. We love the island and the amenities and view. One night the deer were right outside the porch door. Will definitely recommend to others.

Owner's Response: It was my pleasure to give you some local 'intelligence' about the island and the Charleston area, to ensure you had the best vacation experience possible. Since I live in the villa off-season, I try to keep it supplied with things people need and glad you found that helpful. Please come back soon!

Seabrook home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a marvelous 2 week vacation at this villa unit. The photos do not do it justice. It's a lovely home away from home. The kitchen is roomy - lots of granite counter space and well equipped, the starter kit with soap and other items were nice touches. We loved hanging out in the sun-room and looking at the deer in the backyard.

Sue made the whole process very easy - she was very responsive.

We would definitely return to this villa for another vacation. Thanks, Sue!

A lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I enjoyed this wonderful villa for the third yet in a row. Sue has always been very gracious to rent to us and we look forward to staying in her home for a week. We love the space and proximity to the beach. The new touches in the villa made it even more comfortable. The pool is a must on hot days and we were grateful that the amenity cards are included. We enjoyed the ribs and lobster roll at the farmer's market on Monday, went back to Red's Icehouse for seafood, enjoyed the new restaurant Crave and will make Gilligan's a new place to eat on our way out. Thank you for another relaxing vacation!

Our Favorite Spot

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more satisfied! The villa was very comfortable. Thanks for including the amenity cards! The chairs came in handy for the fireworks. The girls and I enjoyed a few hours of fishing as well. Thanks for letting us use the poles. We will defiantly contact you first next year.
