Overview

South Carolina Estate Rental Photos and Description

Why rent a house when you can rent an estate? Drive down the meandering oak lined driveway to your secluded waterfront home in a gated community in the Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge overlooking Bulls Bay. Despite its proximity to historic Charleston, warm beaches, islands, and unlimited coastal & cultural activities, you will not be able to see another house from your 6 acre estate. Spend time relaxing and enjoying the views and abundant wild life near the amenities of Charleston!

The home includes 5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths and sleeps 12 adults and up to 3 more children (large window seat/bed that sleeps 2 small children and a crib). The large master bedroom has the feel of a tree house overlooking the water. Other amenities at the home: 50” HD plasma TV with DVD & VCR, DVD collection, hammock on screened porch, fully equipped kitchen, gas grill, large indoor and outdoor dining tables, 2 car garage, fireplace, enclosed out door shower, crab traps, extra freezer (for all the fish you catch). Pier with deep water floating dock, swing, and sink. Floating dock has ladder for easy swimming. Child swing hanging from an oak tree.

The home is named for the 22 foot diameter oak tree in the front yard. From every window you will enjoy a long range view over the water and/or beautiful oaks. There is a historic civil war canon embankment and other era relics on the property. There is a nearby public landing if you want to bring a boat (Boat & Jet ski rentals are also available on nearby Isle of Palms.) Equestrian neighborhood. Volleyball net and other outdoor games are available.

Boat rides are available to Bull Island (undeveloped barrier island in front of our home) so you can play on a private beach or see the sea turtles nesting (seasonal). Dolphins are plentiful in the waterway. National Bird of Prey center is nearby. Downtown Charleston approx 35min, Isle of Palms approx 22min, Mt Pleasant approx 18min. In order to meet the high standards of our guests, we do not allow smoking or pets. Sorry, we do not allow weddings or other parties on the estate.

Hurricane protection: Unlike most rentals, we put in our contract that we will refund all of your money if you have to cancel due to a hurricane.

Nice, secluded home ready for a family get-together!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house and really enjoyed our stay there. We had a few hiccups, but the owner did his best to try to rectify them even though he was on his OWN vacation at the time! Thank you!

Wonderful home for peaceful family retreat

  • 5 of 5

The listing description for this property was accurate and detailed, with everything clearly laid out in writing and in the online description. The property was very clean and well-maintained with a home-like welcoming feel that immediately put everyone at ease. The owner quickly responded to any concerns, and was very easy to work with. We loved the fact that everyone had both adequate family gathering space in the kitchen, den and screened in porch with private spaces to relax as needed. We enjoyed going out to the dock to view the dolphins, deer and other wildlife and do some fishing. We were only 20 minutes or so from Isle of Palms Beach, and 30 minutes or so from Downtown Charleston. Both were easily reached by Hwy 17 with many amenities and historic sites close by. There was a Dollar General and the SeeWee Outpost store close by if we needed any last minute supplies or gas, and the SeeWee Restaurant had delicious fresh local seafood. Our families would definitely stay here again in the future if the opportunity to visit Charleston arises.

Gorgeous setting, beautiful water views, comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

We expected a wonderful stay and were not disappointed. Gorgeous setting, beautiful water views, comfortable house--a perfect place to be with family to celebrate our son's birthday and mother's day. In a rural, marsh setting but only 15 minutes to a Publix grocery store and 45 minutes to Charleston.

A spacious, quiet, comfortable, private, family get away place.

  • 4 of 5

Had a fun family reunion, birthday, get together. Plenty of room for all. Enjoyed the kitchen and cooking arrangements. The fresh local seafood is fantastic. The screened in porch was fantastic for morning coffee and eating all our meals out side, and enjoying card games in the evening. Lots of nature, birds of all kinds, my sister enjoyed seeing some Dolphins.

Enjoyed fishing and watching all the many different boats going up and down the intercostal waterway. The trees on the property are fantastic.

Relaxing kind of place

Sorority gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 9 sorority sisters from college get together every two years and have been doing so for thirty plus years. Since we live in all parts of the US we select a new location each gathering to visit.

Our Charleston waterfront home was a perfect location and setting for us to meet up and decompress. The home is very open with large spans of windows to showcase the gorgeous setting. Equally important, the accommodations were great with plenty of rooms, beds and baths for a large group.

The rave reviews on the house are accurate. We'd all return for another vacation at the same property.

The house and grounds are absolutely beautiful with the feel of an old southern plantation.

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of five couples taking a long 4 day weekend to visit Charleston. We had a wonderful time at 22Oak and it was everything we had hoped for. Great location with easy access to Charleston and Mt. Pleasant and a beautiful home and grounds. Will definitely plan a return trip.
