About the property

5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

Your family will have a wonderful vacation at the beach on the Isle of Palms staying in 309 Charleston Blvd. It does not get much better than a week at the beach in this classic beach house that has a few surprises.

Ideally located close to a beach access path, 309 Charleston is just a short walk to the ocean. The main home was built in the 1952. The Island was much different in the 1950’s than it is today. World War II veterans were flocking to the Island as an affordable beach front community and a short drive to Charleston Navy Base. The Drifters and Tams could be heard at the Surf Deck, located on the Front Beach Isle of Palms just a short bike ride from 309 Charleston. But one thing that remains special today as it did then is the fact family’s love to vacation on the Island and 309 Charleston is the perfect place stay.

One of the surprises featured at 309 Charleston is that it is actually two different homes. The main home features four bedrooms and three full baths. Original from the 1950’s, heart of pine floors paneling and oak hardwood floors highlight the upper floor of this unique home. Like most homes of the era, the screen porch is like a second living room. Dining as well as comfortable seating will provide the perfect location for your family together. The kitchen has been completely renovated, but still features the classic heart of pine paneling. A living room, dining room and two bedrooms are also featured on the upper floor. The lower level of the main home features another living area as well as two bedrooms and full bath.

As you leave the main home you will find an elevated pool deck that features a private pool. Perfect for entertaining your family or just catching some sun, the pool deck is another surprise that awaits your family at 309 Charleston.

A separate guest house is the final surprise feature of 309 Charleston that is very special and unique on the Island. The guest house is a single large room, but features a modern kitchen, queen bed, seating area, full bathroom and perfect views of the pool deck.

309 Charleston brings together many aspects of what life is all about on the Isle of Palms. The classic design reminds you of vacations when you were young with heart of pine paneling and oak floors that were cut right here on the Island. The pool, and media room in the main home are perfect recreational areas for your children. Finally the guest house provides the perfect opportunity to vacation with other family members yet have the privacy offered by having two separate accommodations.

Renovations in 2013 include painting, creation of the media room, improvements the HVAC systems, and many furnishings.

Some Good features but cluttered, outdated and uncomfortable beds!

  • 3 of 5

Location was good and pool and deck area were great. However, there was lots of clutter in the house (drawers and cupboards filled with supplies/paperwork/cords/etc) in spaces that would have been nice to have as storage. Most mattresses in the house were awful and in need of replacement. Refrigerator in the kitchen leaked copious amounts of water onto the shelves and veggie/meat bins. There were piles of dirt underneath all of the area rugs.

The House served its purpose but certainly could use some extra attention, cleanup, upgrades and maintenance.

We rented this house for 2 weeks in August 2017 to see the solar eclipse, and everything worked out perfectly. The recent upgrades including the movie room and the guest house made a huge difference for us. Would definitely recommend for a family.

Older home with some upgrades. Nice pool.

Close to beach. Nice deck area with grill. Kids especially enjoyed movie screen on rainy afternoons. Also enjoyed screened porch in the evening.

Don't judge a book by its cover

  • 5 of 5

Once you are in the home it's a fun and comfortable place to be. Its a block from the beach is tastefully decorated with furniture you won't be scared to sit on. Sound system in the pool area is great as well as the one inside the house . The downstairs is a perfect place for kids. We plan to rent this unit again next year. Management crew, please supply a vacuum and broom. We like to clean up after ourselves several times a day when we are at the beach.

Great for large/extended families!

  • 4 of 5

The accommodations were great for our large, extended family! The inside was clean and well-maintained. The pool was very nice as well. We loved that the house is such a short walk from the beach. There was some dog hair on the floor and the furniture (mainly in the creases of the furniture), but I guess this is to be expected since the owner does allow pets. The deck definitely needs to be treated. Our children got several splinters walking and playing on the pool deck. The outside of the house is not very attractive, but the inside is updated and well-kept. The mosquitoes were terrible, but the rental company sent over someone to spray very quickly. We would definitely stay here again!
