Overview

About the property

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!

This is an OWNER operated property. We do not rent to anyone we have not spoken with directly. So please call or email BEFORE online booking so we can answer your questions and to ensure that our home is a good fit for you.

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, garage, fireplace, enclosed out door shower, crab traps, extra freezer (for all the fish you catch). Nearby pier with deep water dock. 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.

Fabulous Large Home ! Plenty of Room of large gatherings

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6 women from California, Arizona and Chicago who wanted to Explore the Southern Charm and Hospitality. This home was very convenient to many of the places we visited

Boone Hall Plantation ,Charleston Harbor Downtown Charleston. We took a ride to Savannah which was about 2 hours away and loved that sweet city.

It was about sightseeing and coming home to just relax and plan our next outing. The screened in porch was delightful to sit on to sip coffee and watch the wildlife in the bay.

This home has everything you would need for a large group. Full kitchen for cooking, or Mount Pleasant is about 20 minutes away to many wonderful restaurants.

Boone Hall Farm Store and Mellow Mushroom Pizza were great.

We enjoyed the live music at Seewee Event Center, just down the road from the house.

Will be planning another Southern trip soon

Wonderful location for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This picturesque property gave my family a much-needed escape! No hotel or resort could have provided a family experience like being in this home. Driving up the tree lined driveway melted away the worries of busy work life. The owners couldn't be more accommodating, either.
