Property description



This spacious home on beachfront is designed for a large gathering of family and/or friends. The main living area, warmed by heart-of-pine bead-board and flooring, has four sofas to accommodate hanging-out and visiting. Antique dining table seats 10-16 with five stools at the adjoining kitchen counter/bar (plus a high chair for tots).

Both areas look out over the set-down screen porch with tables, chairs, rockers, hammock, and sundeck onto the beautiful white beach and ocean. You are close enough to watch older kids and/or friends swim or play horse shoes on the beach from inside the home.

Designed for congregating, this home also offers individual privacy. Each of the five adult bedrooms has its own TV with cable, 3 with DVDs; four of these have ocean views and three have doors onto the upper level deck. The large kid's room has been painted to resemble an aquarium. It has two sets of bunks with trundles under each, and TV/DVD.

The underneath of this home is a grill-out, hang-out, play area, white washed and open-air, 14 ft ceiling. It has 2 gas grills, 1 charcoal, propane streampot cooker, a tiki bar area, cd/mp3 player, ping pong table, hammock chairs, and various outdoor/beach games, as well as outdoor table and chairs. We keep 6-8 beach chairs (along with the resin adirondacks that are great for beach), a large cooler, and an awesome all-terain Wonder Wheeler to tote your things across your private boardwalk and down the dune. I also have info for a service that will set you up with wood and canvas loungers and umbrellas each morn. Call or email to ask about our pool access.

Bedroom breakdown:
1 king master BR with ocean view on main floor (other 5 BRs are upstairs)
4 Queen BRs, 3 with oceanfront view (2 have loveseats which have been also used as toddler beds)
(1 without ocean view)
6 twin beds in kid's room (2 sets of bunks with trundles; plus a port-a-crib for tots).

Bed linens and bath towels are provided.
Beginning June 1, 2015 we are going to all cotton, 500 count linens, and 100% cotton cover, top-line hypoallergenic pillows in 5 adult rooms; all cotton linens and allerest cotton pillows in kid's room. Bear in mind please that 100% cotton wrinkles, and sunbathing products stain terribly. Sheets and towels are certainly guaranteed clean, but not free from such small product stains.

We are set up to very comfortably accommodate 10 adults with 2-6 children, or 12 adults. Isle of Palms now strictly enforces their CODES which limit the number of guests in all rentals. We may only exceed 16 guests for children 2 years or younger. Guests risk a fine for violating Codes.


We choose this specific spot to build for the closest legal proximity to the beach (20 yds down our private boardwalk), safe swimming areas, and non-crowded privacy from the commercial area, a 3/4 mile walk.

You are 3/4 mile walk or drive down the beachfront to the Banana Cabana, Long Island Cafe, Coconut Joe's, Acme Lowcountry Grill, and many great restaurants. 3/4 mile the other way to The Boathouse Restaurant on Breech Inlet. The world famous Windjammer beach bar offers up live entertainment.

While enjoying the Island Life, you can go swimming, body surfing, play volleyball, dine at oceanfront restaurants, bike the beaches, jog, cruise the intercoastal waterway, sail, surf, windsurf, take in some live music, shop the boutiques. Check out the scuba diving or go deep sea fishing. Relax at a spa or try horseback riding. Kayak, parasail, water-ski, fish, go 'Crabin or Shrimpin,' walk the beach for shells, take a sunset cruise, charter a small boat, explore uninhabited islands, play some of the South’s finest golf courses. Whether you want to get a little tune-up to your swing or you are just starting to play, there is a PGA Professional available to you during your stay. Improve your game and/or just play a great course at a reduced rate. Mark Kennon, LMT of Tailored Massage 843-514-6731 offers massage at the beachhouse as well as the office nearby. He is amazing and a massage is a great way to enjoy your vacation. Do call and schedule in advance.

***VRBO has made changes in their system, for enhanced security they say, that may lead guests to think that they MUST book online thru VRBO with a credit card. That is NOT the case. You may call me at 843-884-6799 or email me at side option, or directly at splayer at comcast dot net . I have had this site for 14 years and preferred the old way, but will certainly honor bookings made thru VRBO as well.

We have installed Chromecast in LR so that with your smart phone's free app, so you'll be able to access your Netflix, Amazon Prime, Vudu accts, Instagram photos, and much more.

You are only ten miles from the Historic District of Downtown Charleston. Take in the charm of this beautiful city and learn more about Charleston on a horse-drawn carriage ride, or tour Charleston Bay and Fort Sumter by boat. South Carolina Aquarium, world class restaurants, the Charleston City Open Market and shopping galore, live theater, live music, museums, and more.

You are just five minutes from Mount Pleasant Towne Centre: an upscale shopping experience in classic southern style. With over 65 national and local tenants, including: Banana Republic, Gap, Bath & Body Works, Caché, Men's Wearhouse and Old Navy, as well as the regions only J.Jill, Coldwater Creek and Francesca's. Sample exquisite home-made candy at Sweet Julep's Candy & Gifts, or dine in style at Guy Harvey, Longhorn Steakhouse, Chili's, TGI Friday's, Atlanta Bread Company, - there is sure to be a culinary diversion to suit your palette. After dinner, stroll the lush, tree-lined streets or relax at the luxurious Palmetto Grande 16-screen theatre. Ten minutes away you'll find famous Shem Creek shrimp boats and seafood restaurants. The Yorktown WWII destroyer and several historical plantations are all within easy driving distance as well.

(Please note: there is a separate 1 BR Suite NOT available for rental that will be locked off and empty for your stay, and is Not part if the 6BR/ 4.75BA .)

We split fees for PAYPAL, but do not feel comfortable having your credit card info in these crazy days of identity theft.

( *We also have a small oceanfront condo that sleeps up to 5 - 2/3 of a mile up the beach for small groups or additional guests. See - 'All My Rental Listings' below for links. We have a large 2BR townhouse 1 mile from Sullivan's Island beach and 6 miles to downtown for fabulous rates, as well as a 1BR (king bed)/1BA next door to that which sleeps up to 4 with wide open calendar for this Fall/winter. Please ask about the great rates and availability.

Private chef services are available. Ask for more info.

(We provide a lmited amount of start-up paper goods, soaps, etc.)

The underneath is cleaned monthly, but not in between weekly Summer use and wil likely have sand and dirt, etc, like a yard outdoor area. Also grills may have some gas, but it is possible you will need to get a refill, plus your own charcoal, as we do not regularly supply those items.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: My name is Susan Player Verbsky; a wife and mother by God's Grace, a Psychotherapist by training, with a small practice here for 20 years, and a Real Estate investment and management specialist by design for the same time period. I enjoy the great intangible rewards of Therapy, and, equally, the tangible rewards of developing a property and working with people planning vacation time.

Why the Owner Chose Isle of Palms:
Our family built this house after many years of family trips renting homes up and down the Carolina Coast. We choose this spot on IOP for its exceptionally beautiful and safe beach, proximity to ocean, and as well to all that Charleston has to offer. We then endeavored to incorporate all of the do's and dont's we learned in the many beachfront homes we had rented. ** Smaller groups and families may want to look at our small beachfront condo 2/3 mile up the beach, our 1BR (king bed)/1BA 1 mile from the beach and 6 miles to Historic Downtown, our large townhouse next door to it. Look at "All my listings" next to owner info : )

The Unique Benefits at this House:
As mentioned before, this home is designed for a large gathering of family and/or friends to enjoy each other, enjoy privacy when desired, enjoy amazing views from almost every room, enjoy the best beach, and enjoy Charleston when you can tear yourself away. I am from this area, and live less than 5 miles away, so I am able to be hands-on. We are in a residential area, so if you're looking for a total party house, please continue : )
