About the property

1 block from the beach! King bed, full futon. Full bath. Kitchen w/ essentials.

Perfect for small families, girls’ weekends, or a couple’s getaway, this seaside retreat, located at the Ocean Inn on Isle of Palms, is privately owned and maintained. It is nicely appointed with all you might need for a relaxing stay at the beach that won’t break the bank. Don't think of it as a condo at the beach - think of it as our 'guest room', fixed up for you with all that you need for a great get-away.

*** Please note: Communication alone does not constitute a reservation! Dates remain available until a reservation is confirmed through payment and ID verification. If you know you want to rent this property please let me know as soon as possible. I can be reached by phone as well. ***

*** Cancellation: 100% refund if cancelled 30 days prior to arrival, 50% if cancelled 14-29 days prior to arrival, 0% if cancelled less than 14 days ahead of arrival.***

What's inside:

This large studio condo sleeps 4 with 1 King-sized bed (Black Label Simmons Beautyrest) and one full-sized convertible bed (futon), both in the large sleeping area.

There is one full bathroom with tub/shower. We provide a couple rolls of toilet paper, a couple bars of soap, bath towels, washcloths, bath mat. (There is a bottle of shampoo under the sink just in case.) We do not provide beach towels but they can be purchased inexpensively at Target, Wal Mart, or the shops on the beach.

The dining table seats 2 or 4. There are extra chairs in the closet. The wall-mounted flat screen TV can be seen from the bed room and the dining area.

A kitchen renovation included adding a convection-microwave for quick microwaving that can also be used for REAL OVEN BAKING for pizza, cookies, casseroles, etc. There is a drip-style coffee maker, NuWave induction cook-top with essential pots and pans to use with it, toaster, dishwasher (a big plus!!) and refrigerator with freezer. There is a full complement of dishes, drink ware, silverware, pots, pans, utensils. There are utensils for the grill as well.

You are welcome to use the beach chairs that live in the closet.

What's outside:

'Not quite off the beaten path”, this first floor condo is located within a small complex of 20 condos (Ocean Inn) that features a private pool, free parking (a commodity on the island!), and coined laundry facilities which happen to be conveniently located a few doors down from our condo. Just 20 steps away is an outdoor seating area with a grill and picnic table where it is common for guests to congregate for happy hour and burgers on the grill. This is a great spot in the complex where neighbors become friends, often returning year after year. The pool is on the other side of the building so when there is pool noise, you won’t hear it. (An added bonus!!) When you open your front door, you might hear music coming from the beach front area, but you won’t appreciate being a half block away until you go around the corner and the music gets louder! Staying ocean front isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be – there is a reason why there is a city-wide 10pm noise ordinance. It will be nice and quiet here.

Best of all:

The furriest member of the family doesn’t have to miss out on all the fun! (Dogs only.) A pet fee is required for your pooch to stay and is added on as an extra guest fee. The fee is $20 PER DAY, or $95 per week and WILL BE ADJUSTED AT THE TIME OF YOUR BOOKING. The floor is tiled. There is a new vet clinic right down the street plus an emergency clinic and pet stores in Mt Pleasant for all your pup's needs.

If you are not traveling with Rover, have no fear - our place is well-maintained and will not have any tell-tale signs of animals ever curling up to sleep here.

Are you celebrating something? Let us know how we can make it special.

Need items for baby while you're away?

We can connect you to services in town that will deliver and set up all you need to make your child's stay comfortable.

'What if my plans change?'

Cancellation policy: 100% refund if cancelled 30 days prior to arrival, 50% if cancelled 14-29 days prior to arrival, 0% if cancelled less than 14 days ahead of arrival. But, we are reasonable people, so let's have a conversation about it.

About Beth Crunelle

We are a small family of 4 and live right across the bridge in Mt Pleasant. We wanted to have a place for our out of town family to stay and offer it for others to enjoy when it is available.

Beth Crunelle purchased this condo in 2014

Why Beth Crunelle chose Charleston Area

We love this complex in particular because, although there are several rental units, many families live here full time. It is well maintained by our management company as well as the year-round residents who all take great pride in the property. Each unit is individually owned and we manage our own so we can offer a personal touch to your accommodations. We really do treat our place as our guest suite - and we will treat you as our guest as well. We want you to feel welcome and comfortable.

The Isle of Palms is a wonderful beach destination that is unlike any other. There is an interesting mix of building styles that date back to way before Hurricane Hugo came through and devastated the island in 1989. We like the mix of old and new, and we LOVE that it is not as commercial as it is on other parts of the coast. The food on the island is some of the best in Charleston so while you might want to venture into the City for sightseeing and shopping, you can find a great meal right here on the island every night of your stay, many within walking distance.

What makes this condo unique

You don't have to drive anywhere - you can hang up your keys when you arrive and never move your car until it's time to go home. You will find great food everywhere around you - pizza, seafood, burgers, gourmet, bar food, you name it. The best breakfast spots on the island (where the locals eat) are just a 3-minute walk. It's almost like being at a B&B except that you probably won't go to breakfast in your robe.....not that you couldn't, mind you....some go in their beach cover up, so hey....why not??

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

Beth’s place was perfect for my husband and me. The decor was fresh and beachy, and the kitchenette was lovely. Everything was very clean which is my first concern when renting a vacation condo. I also appreciated the beach chairs being provided for us. The location was perfect. We walked to the beach, restaurants, and the grocery store. I highly recommend staying here and look forward to a return visit.

Great location! This pet friendly unit is super clean too! Beth was amazing and really makes sure you have everything you need. Quiet unit...huge comfortable bed to crash in after a day on the beach followed by dinner and music...all within walking distance. ❤

Owner's Response: Thanks for choosing The Ocean Inn and this condo for your time away. It's great to have all you need within a short walk, even if the weather is "meh". We enjoy seeing familiar faces when guests return and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
