South Carolina Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Relax and unwind in one of Seabrook’s finest villas - ideal for stress free family getaways! The Palm has had a decade of glowing reviews from our guests and is one of the most requested destinations on Seabrook Island. The villa is clean and bright and comfortable and is ideally located on the beach end of the island on a private cul de sac lot.

Check out photos, video and reviews! New renovations include all new tile showers and floors in bathrooms, new vanities and fixtures! In the living room, the fireplace was removed to expand the living area! The beds are comfortable and the large kitchen is very well equipped. Also, the Palm has U Verse television service in all three bedrooms as well as the main living room with fast high speed wifi included!

Under the shade of beautiful palm trees and live oaks covered with Spanish moss, The Palm has incredible views of a large lagoon and hole #2 of Crooked Oaks championship golf course. Family friendly and designer decorated, you'll be in a vacation mood the minute you walk through the door!!

Guests rave about the large, very private screen porch with comfortable Tommy Bahama furniture and large picnic style dining table! Listen to the sounds of the lagoon's water feature or turn on the outdoor speakers and enjoy your favorite tunes - via CD, radio or I-pod connection.

The kitchen is well equipped with an island, a new microwave, K cup and regular coffee makers - even plates and cups special for kids. There are numerous games in the game closet, a 42 inch plasma tv, a movie library, a book closet, a Playstation 2 and many other amenities.

Plenty of room - The Palm's master bedroom features a queen bed, the 2nd bedroom features a queen 4 poster queen bed and the 3rd bedroom has a beautiful queen bed as well. Plus, there is a very nice sleeper sofa in the living room. (See pictures below of all rooms)

Newly remodeled with new furniture, fresh paint, pine hardwood floors, berber carpet, ceramic tile baths, The Palm is comfortable and relaxing. Plantation shutters, ceiling fans in every room, beachy décor and bright colors make this one of Seabrook's most appealing rentals.

Just 1/2 mile from the beach - on end of cul de sac, with lots of privacy and large backyard!

Come and enjoy the best, most inviting cottage on Seabrook - The Palm!!

About David Medlock

We are a family from Charlotte NC...We have three children: Kelsey, (who was married on Seabrook Island in 2015 to her husband Ben. They currently live in Asheville), Tyler, (who lives and works in Charlotte) and Clay (who is in high school). We are natives of the Charlotte area but love the SC lowcountry!

David Medlock purchased this cottage in 2005

Why David Medlock chose South Carolina

We purchased this cottage in the spring of 2005, right after it went on the market. It was perfect for our family and we especially loved the lot location, right next to the lagoon and golf course at the end of the cul de sac. It offers a level of privacy that is not common among Summerwind Cottages.

What makes this cottage unique

The screen porch and the private lot are the best features. Our cottage also has a nice big kitchen which guests seem to really enjoy.

Beautiful Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Seabrook Island is so beautiful and this condo was perfect for us. We especially loved the screened in porch. We saw 10 dolphins while sitting on the beach. So wonderful.

Was ok

  • 3 of 5

The property was ok for our stay, but very far away from the main entrance to Summerwind. We missed the BBQ as we could not use it. It was extremely dirty and we did not feel like cleaning up somebody's filth. The place was somewhat clean, but there were areas with 1/2 inch of dust that hasn't been cleaned in years. The dishes were not enough for a family of 5. We needed to run the dishwasher every time we ate. That thing was very noisy and since the main TV is in the living room, it was hard to watch TV. The TV had a problem with the volume as we had it set at 100% and we still could hardly hear anything if somebody talked or the Washer and Dryer or dishwasher were running. The bathrooms were nice, but a supply of toilette paper would have been appreciated as in a hotel we get a roll every day if needed and since this stay is more expensive than a hotel, I would have expected to get a decent supply. One of the neighbours parked his 3rd car in front of our parking spot, which caused some aggravation to us trying to maneuver in and out. The beach was good, but to our surprise (we are each year in Seabrook for the last 15 years) there was trash in the water and on the beach, which could have hurt somebody. Overall, besides all that the stay was ok.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am very sorry you experienced some issues that made your stay less than perfect. Our villa has been rented consistently all summer this year and everyone else has reported that their stay was excellent with a five star review. Our house is maintained by a top notch property management firm and it is thoroughly cleaned every week. The kitchen is very well equipped. Our family stayed in June with eight people and had no issues with the dishes. Regarding the television, this is the first I have heard of any technical issues with it. We will have it checked out, but again, no one else has reported any issues with it. With regard to the location of the villa - yes it is far from the main gate but close to the beach. Most guests prefer being on the beach side of the island, not the side closest to the gate. Thanks again for your comments. Our goal is to ensure 100 percent satisfaction and most of our reviewers rave about our place. David

First Time Visit

  • 5 of 5

Our Family enjoyed staying at the "PALM" house. The location is as others have stated, very nice since it is at the end of cottage row and the peace and quiet and privacy are wonderful! The layout of the home is great. The master bedroom on one side and two other bedrooms on the other side. The bathrooms are light, bright, and clean like you would expect in a really nice hotel. The kitchen as stated is large enough to hold more then the chef, so if others want to help or just chat the kitchen time can be a fun time also. The large screened porch was the most used space during our stay. It is here you can sit and chill out listening to nature either rain or shine, have your morning beverage and make plans for the day, eat all your meals here (which is what we did). Seabrook Island is a great get away vacation spot. We found the property to be convenient to all points of interest during our time on the island. You can ride bikes to the beach or drive should you have lots to carry. We never had a problem finding a parking space. So set your course for Seabrook Island and make your anchorage the "Palm".

My family and I were in town for a family reunion and this was the perfect place for us. We enjoyed our stay. The place is very comfortable and feels like home. We enjoyed sitting on the deck eating while watching golfers golf. Could not have picked a better place to relax and enjoy
