Our favorite place

  • 5 of 5

To all who are looking,

This is a dreamy oasis of a beach house, perfect for that relaxing, cozy get away where you can hear the waves and feel the breeze. The place is so thoughtfully decorated and homey, with all of the comforts you could need provided for you. Just a note!!! We plan on staying every Christmas so don't take our days ;)! You would be lucky to grab it if the days you want are available. We will be back yearly! Xo

Family thanksgiving vacation

  • 5 of 5

Not only is this house a perfect gateway but the home owners really take the time to make your stay feel like you are at home. They pay such close attention to details. It's minutes from all the great places to eat on IOP but still so quiet and peaceful. The screened in porch is absolutely amazing! We ate our thanksgiving meal on it. We had plenty of room and a beautiful view! My family and I could go back every year.

Family vacation and birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

This place was PERFECT! While the pictures are accurate, they really don't do this charming house justice.

This kitchen was well stocked. The bedrooms were roomy and comfortable. But really the star was the screened in porch! This vacation week was focused on relaxation and the porch provided this without any work what so ever. Coffee and breakfast in the mornings with the sun rising and lingering into the mid morning when the decision had to be made...linger a little longer or walk down the private boardwalk to the beach? IN the evenings, when we returned back from golf or being a tourist (How fabulous is the Deep South and Charleston for history buffs!) we would eat on the porch and then play cards late into the evening as the ocean breeze keep us cool.

Mary was easy to communicate with and very friendly and accommodating. I have worried that Hurricane Matthew may have done some damage to the house....I hope not, because I intends to return to this small slice of heaven.

Exceeded expectations.

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for more in a beach rental. The house was spotless and made us feel like they were at home. The kitchen was stocked with basics like aluminum foil, bags, paper towels, etc. Bug spray was on the counter to protect from the local mosquitoes. I can go on and on :)

The space was perfect for our family to relax and as others noted, the screened-in porch was ideal for the setting and allowed our young son to have plenty of space to wander around.

In addition to the many amenities, we were right on the beach, and a few steps away from a great grocery store. When we ready to stretch out legs, we were extremely close to the many restaurants in the Sullivan's Island downtown area, just around the corner from 517 to Mt. Pleasant, and under a 20 minute ride to Charleston.

Mary was extremely attentive to our needs throughout the trip; sending messages during the week to confirm everything was going well.

Overall, I highly recommend.

This lovely beachhouse is beautifully decorated from the linens, furniture, light fixtures, lamps...everything! The huge screened in porch always had a breeze blowing through it and plenty of comfy chairs and a couch to nap in...large table and chairs for playing games or eating too. The rooms inside were large and had plenty of closet and drawer space. The walkway to the beach was a wooden sidewalk almost all the way down unlike some other houses we saw. Beach chairs and towels were provided, lots of beach toys too. The outdoor shower was handy for washing sand off at the end of the day. Large refridgerator to hold our food and a nice quiet dishwasher. The location was so close to Mt. Pleasant and Charleston for trips to restaurants or sightseeing. The neighborhood is quiet and 2 minutes from a grocery store, dentist, church and frozen yogurt.

My family enjoyed the house very much.

Great vacation experience!

  • 5 of 5

Having spent many vacations in Hilton Head over the years, and knowing a bit about Charleston, we thought we would try something new this year and rented this wonderful home in Isle of Palms. We did this as a family trip, including our 19 month old grandson.

We had a fabulous time, and enjoyed staying at this very nice, clean and comfortable home, furnished with everything you will need. Despite being a wonderful home away from home, the location is superb. A wonderful beach is right out the back door, and a large number of great restaurants are nearby, including those on Sullivans Island (a little more than 5 minutes up the main road). And if you want to spend some time in the old city in Charleston, you can be there in 20 minutes, traveling across a new state of the art bridge that is fascinating to look at.

Best of all, the little guy's first beach vacation was a big hit for him, as the beach is big, beautiful, safe, and "user friendly".

We would not hesitate to do it again, and strongly recommend this property. The owners couldn't have been nicer or more cooperative, and made it not only a no-hassle experience, but a very enjoyable one. Mary and Bill, thanks for everything.
