Gorgeous Isle of Palms Beach House with Spectacular Ocean Views on Quiet, Safe Semi- Cul de Sac Leading to Beach - Nightly Rate All Inclusive, No Hidden Charges!
This open, sunny 6-bedroom beach house is perfect for families as it is located on one of the very sought after quiet, charming side streets right off the sand dunes, away from traffic and the more crowded beach areas on the island. With 7 porches, fabulous ocean views and a 1-2 minute walk down to the beach -- this is Island Living at its best!
The house has two main bedroom suites, with full bath, ideal for two families and an additional four bedrooms for kids or other guests. All six bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms.
1st Floor: On this entry level floor you will find the secondary living room area designed for kids to have a separate play area for board games and watching TV, allowing parents to sometimes enjoy a more relaxing main living room upstairs and adult conversation. There are three bedrooms on this floor, all with bathrooms en-suite. The master bedroom on this floor has a queen-sized bed, sitting area and has a nice bathroom with large tiled shower. It has double glass door access to a peaceful side porch, which runs the length of the house. This porch has a comfortable hammock for quiet reading and relaxation. The two other bedrooms on this first level have two twin beds in each room -- in one of those rooms, we have pulled the two twins together and made bed up as a King (can be easily separated back into twins if necessary).
2nd Floor: The second level is the main living area of the beach house and is designed with vaulted ceilings and a large great living room that opens onto the dining room and open kitchen. Here you can enjoy two gorgeous porches facing the ocean. One porch faces down our street with great ocean views and breezes, the other large porch off dining room has 6 comfortable rocking chairs, and is a great space to unwind while grilling outdoors, surrounded by palm trees. A third porch set behind kitchen has a great hammock, which is a great place for a nap or a summer read. This main level is flooded with light and is a marvelous place to relax with your friends and family.
Also on this floor you will enjoy a flat screen TV and DVD, and a large sectional sofa just off the dining room area.
The kitchen has plenty of counter space with bar stools for friends to gather round and talk while you prepare your meals for grilling on the outside porch grill.
Behind the open kitchen/dining room area are two additional bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. One is ideal for children as it has a double under single bunk bed, suitable for three small children or two older children. The other bedroom has a queen bed, with full bath, with access to the front porch of the house and terrific ocean views. It is off this second floor bedroom that you will find the laundry room with washer and dryer, tucked away behind the elevator, which is facing the kitchen. The elevator is designed primarily for luggage and groceries, is very small and will not accommodate a wheel chair, or more than one person.
It must be used with caution as it may break easily if misused. The elevator only goes to second floor (kitchen area), not to Master Suite on third floor.
3rd Floor: This floor consists entirely of one very large, sunny master bedroom, which includes a king bed, sitting alcove with desk, master bath with jacuzzi tub and walk-in shower, walk-in closet, and access to a small porch with spectacular views of the ocean and beach that stretch for miles in front of the house. This master bedroom also includes a flat screen TV.
Children staying at the beach house will also enjoy a basketball hoop/with movable stand, which can be wheeled out on the driveway for a spirited group basketball game. The street is very quiet with little traffic as it is a cul de sac, which few people venture down unless they are residents. There is an outside shower for your convenience under the house so that renters can shower after returning from the beach.
This home also comes with high speed internet (Internet services are not guaranteed to work with your equipment. We cannot provide support for guest's personal computer systems, nor can we guarantee the WiFi will be operational).
The house if very near the Isle of Palms Marina, where you can rent jet skis, kayaks, take boat rides to the barrier islands, etc. We highly recommend a morning of paddle boarding from the Marina. You can rent the boards and take off as a group or on your own and explore the creeks and waterways off the Island. It's a very peaceful and fun activity. Also, the famous Wild Dunes golf resort is three short blocks from our home, where non-members can -- for a fee -- rent bikes and use their restaurant, tennis and golf facilities.

About Maggie Simpson
Michael and I both live in Washington, D.C., however, Michael grew up in South Carolina and we love to vacation at our beach home on the Isle of Palms with our three children, extended family and friends. While we have traveled to many parts of the world, it's hard to beat the beautiful beaches, the marshes, the barrrier islands, the wildlife and fabulous weather when visiting the Isle of Palms. We also just love spending time in downtown Charleston -- which we find to be one of the most charming cities in America, with fabulous gourmet restaurants!
Maggie Simpson purchased this House in 1987
Why Maggie Simpson chose Isle of Palms
Michael's family owned this beach house many years ago, however, we did a major renovation and turned the original three bedroom house into a six bedroom, six-bath home as we wanted it to be big enough for us to invite our extended family while on vacation. Before we renovated, we looked at many other homes for sale, however, we decided very quickly that our location was unbeatable as it is practically beach front, is on a beautiful quiet beach side street and is very close to the marina, wild dunes resort, and only 20 minutes to Charleston.
What makes this House unique
The unique benefits of this home are the extremely short hop, skip & jump to the beach itself, the quiet, safe street and the seven porches with many fabulous ocean views. And if you enjoy bright, open living areas, you'll love the layout of this home. The house is also a 5 minute drive to the marina where you can rent motor boats, jet skis, kayaks, banana boats, etc. Also, the world renowned Wild Dunes resort is a 5 minute drive away as well, where you can, for a fee, play golf, get tennis lessons, and rent bikes. Charleston itself is an easy, scenic 20 minute car ride over the bridge, which is a huge plus as well.
Sports & Adventure Activities
Unpretentious home with a great layout for a large family and plenty of room to spread out
I’ve been coming to Isle of Palms for family vacations since I was a small boy and have great memories of my times here. We added to these memories this year as well.
The homeowner was attentive and responsive to us leading up to and throughout our stay. Decks and balconies off of most rooms, gave everyone a sense of their own space. The kitchen is large and very well appointed, allowing us to cook easily for a our large group and seat everyone together for meals.
Kids had their own “playroom” on the first level, allowing the adults a large space for uninterrupted visiting and conversation in the evenings. Loved the rocking chairs on the deck and we had a good view of the ocean.
We look forward to returning in the future.
Only steps from the beach and more than met the needs of our 12 person party.
A great property for a large group. With six bedrooms and baths and lots of porch area, we were able to spread out for quiet time and then all gather together in the spacious kitchen/living area. Steps from one of the best beaches I've been to and only a short ride into Charleston for great restaurants and points of interest. Simply the best!
We love having renters enjoy our home and take such good care of our property - thank you for your lovely review! We agree that our location so close to beach and in an area where there are far fewer crowds than other stretches of beach on island is a big plus!
Hope you visit us again soon. Have a lovely rest of summer! Maggie
Beautiful property in quiet street just yards from the beach!
Just two minutes from the beach - a very well equipped house that is comfortable for all!
Main living area is open and spacious, and lots of decking for cocktails and relaxing.
Would definitely plan another stay in the future
Linda, thank you for taking the time to give us this great review. So happy you loved Palms' Porch! Come again soon! Maggie
Family reunion perfection.
Me, husband and toddler, my sister and her husband and two kids, our brother and our parents all went for a week and had an amazing time.
The house is perfectly laid out and so beautifully decorated. Perfect areas for togetherness AND for privacy - little private gathering areas in various places around the house and decks, but with an open kitchen and great room for socializing together.
Maggie answered all questions right away.
Perfect for day trips to Charleston and for having cold gin and tonics on the porch in the amazing sea breeze.
Kids had a ball because of easy beach access. The number of bathrooms was so key!
We had such a great time!! Thanks Maggie!!
Loved having you and your family stay at our beach home and enjoy it as much as we do!
We are here now for 4th of July week! Thank you for your great comments/review and for taking such good care of our home. Do visit us again soon! Maggie
Wonderful Memorial Day Weekend
The house was even more perfect that the photos suggest. Each room was spacious and having a bathroom for each person was key to keeping everyone happy. Having the extra seating rooms and so many decks made for plenty of spontaneous hang outs.
The beach was actually only 2 minutes away! So easy, even with a baby! And the views from the decks were gorgeous each morning and evening.
Maggie was especially easy to contact and was quick to respond when I had questions. There was a lovely handwritten note and even a bottle of prosecco to welcome the family! Such a special treat!
Would definitely recommend this home to anyone who wanted a great weekend for a large group.
One note - The mattress in the room with the bunk beds is rather thin. Better for kids than adults -especially if you are a light sleeper! Every other room was MORE than comfortable.
Thanks Danis for your lovely review. It is always great to know that others enjoy and appreciate our home as much as we do! We are headed down for 4th of July weekend with the whole family and cannot wait! Hope you stay with us again soon! Maggie
Great family getaway
Fantastic house. Everything was top notch. Would definitely rent again.
Thanks you for the great review Daniel! We are thrilled you and your family loved our home. Please come again soon! Maggie
