Charleston Area House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Gorgeous Isle of Palms Beach House with Spectacular Ocean Views on Quiet, Safe Cul de Sac Leading to Beach

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 and away from the more crowded beach areas on the island. With 7 porches, fabulous ocean views and a 60 second 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.

MUST BE 30 years of age or older to rent this home!

As a note of caution we would like to remind you that this home is located in a residential area, and the community is very sensitive to inappropriate noise levels emanating from rental homes particularly in the evening hours. Therefore we cannot allow parties, and we must prohibit large gatherings after 10pm. The noise ordinance is strictly enforced by the Isle of Palms Police. Violations of the noise ordinance could result in fines and/or eviction.

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 Charleston Area

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.

PERFECT VACATION GET-AWAY

  • 5 of 5

What a special spot! My extended family had the chance to stay at this spacious, immaculate beach house in August. We are eager to return!! We loved relaxing on the large side deck with its spectacular ocean views and had plenty of space to relax inside in the large great room with its updated and super comfortable furniture. It is a very quick 2 min stroll to the beach and the owners make it easy providing a cart to roll any of your items. On top of being in paradise, we loved working with the owners. So easy. They clearly cherish this spot as they take excellent care of it and those lucky enough to visit!

Dream house in perfect location on the best beach ever!

  • 5 of 5

It's rare that you fall in love with a home and a place as much as we did! This house made our vacation the best we have ever had. It is spacious, full of light, tastefully decorated, nicely laid-out, well-cared for and beautifully clean. You can tell the owners love their beach home. The large side porch has a magnificent view of the ocean, and is surrounded by swaying palmetto trees and cooled by soft breezes. The large kitchen has everything you need and is open to allow for socializing while cooking. Bedrooms have comfortable beds and nice linens, and there are bathrooms galore! The kids love the outdoor shower when coming in from the beach. There is everything you need to enjoy the beach--from umbrellas to boogie boards to folding chairs. And there is even a cart to roll your day's stuff down to the beach a few years away (this is the third house from the beach). The Isle of Palms is a little paradise, not far from elegant Charleston, with long wide beaches that are usually quite empty on this end of the island. The water is not cold in the summer and the surf is usually gentle--great for adults and children. Shopping is easy and there is plenty for everyone to do when they have had enough beach time. Frankly, just relaxing in this gorgeous house or on the porch in a big rocking chair is a vacation enough for me! Thank you for sharing this slice of heaven with us!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

This beach home is perfect! So close to the beach and plenty of room for a large extended family of 12. Each couple had our own bedroom and en suite bathrooms. The decor is lovely, open and full of charm. Plenty of beach and bath towels for everyone. The second floor main living area is a fabulous place to hang out with family, spacious and bright, with a big comfy sectional sofa, flat screen TV, kitchen with bar stools and access to three great porches. The front porch and 3rd floor porches have best views of ocean and we really enjoyed them. The main side porch off of dining room with 6 big rockers is also a perfect place to relax surrounded by palm trees swaying in the wind as you enjoy your morning coffee. The house was very clean and was stocked nicely with all utensils, pots and pans you need to make a great meal. Our kids loved being so close to beach, and playing basketball and ping pong. Also the house is very close to the IOP Marina which is great for fun boat outings and jet ski rentals. All in all, a fantastic stay! We look forward to coming back soon.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Our family, ranging in age from 7 to 67 thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your beautiful home. The home is spacious, very clean and tastefully appointed. The layout of the home allowed everyone to have privacy and the common areas are plenty large enough to gather as a family for meals and fun times! We really appreciated how quiet the neighborhood is, that fact that there is no traffic and that we didn't have to cross a street to get to the beach. The porches are fantastic and the views of the beach and ocean from them was magnificent. Everyone in our group LOVED the house and the area; we just wished we could stay longer. Thank you also for being so awesome to work with! You provided helpful information before our trip, answered questions promptly and checked on us after we arrived, all of which we appreciated. When we return to Isle of Palms in the future, we won't even consider looking at any other properties. We will stay at Palm's Porch for sure! Thank you for allowing us the use of your beautiful home as we made family memories.

Large Family Vacation a SUCCESS because of this wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a big family and this home allowed us all to be together and enjoy one another and also have our own private spaces to rest and relax. The porches are WONDERFUL and we enjoyed them all. The home was very comfortable and the owners thought of EVERYTHING to make your stay feel like home. Quick walk to the beach and lovely quiet street. We will be back!
