My family stayed at this lovely home while in the area for a wedding. We had 13 people in our group, 7 of them children, and the home had room for everyone without feeling crowed. Andrea was responsive to questions and even purchased life-vests for the younger children when I inquired if they might have some. We were not disappointed in any way. We recommend this home!

Great New Years Stay
Great New Years Stay
We stayed at Avalon over the new years holiday and had a wonderful time. The house was far nicer than we anticipated. The pictures on the vrbo site are accurate, but certainly under promise the true extent of the house. The bedrooms are massive to the point that our two small children (1 and 3) stayed in the room with us as opposed to using the other bedrooms - the younger in a pack-n-play they provided and the other on the blow up mattress that was also provided. Very short walk to the beach, and though we opted to not get the pool heated up - would certainly see where that would come in quite handy in the warmer months. Kitchen was well equipped, appliances were first classs, and seating for 8 comfortably.... easily could have accomodated a few more. Owners were great to work with, very responsive to the few questions we had once we arrived. Very few details, if any, were overlooked with this property. Good times had by all. Definitely hope to return and would recommend to multiple families travelling with small children.

Our Senior Women's tennis team was in town for a tournament. The house was perfect for us - well-appointed, comfortable. clean and spacious. For a group of women traveling together, the number of beds was a big plus, as was the fact that each bedroom has a bathroom. Plenty of towels and lots of hot water for our frequent showers. The owners were a delight to work with and I was congratulated by everyone in our group for finding a great house. Long Island Cafe, practically around the corner, is a favorite place for dinner. Avalon by the Sea has our recommendation.

Family Gathering Summer 2012
Family Gathering Summer 2012
We had a family get-together with 3 generations at this house. Here's what worked for us: - The beach is more than lovely and a very easy walk straight down 23rd street. Everything you could want for the beach is in the garage under the house. The shower in the garage keeps the house from getting sandy during the week. - Late July in SC is hot and humid, but the house was very well air-conditioned. We spent our time at the beach, in the house and on boating excursions so didn't mind the heat at all. - Each bedroom has an attached bathroom. - My elderly father-in-law was able to use the elevator to get into and out of the house. He can't do stairs anymore. - We did loads of cooking in the spacious kitchen. It was an extra bonus to be able to watch the kids in the pool outside from the kitchen. On the other hand, we did have an issue with the owner over how we left the house at the end of our stay. I think this can be avoided in the future if there is an option to request extra cleaning services up front. With a party of our size and age range, we just weren't able to put the kitchen and a few other things back to rights before leaving. If that option were available next time, I could pay for the extra cleaning up front and the owners could have more time to schedule and staff it.

Owner response: Thank for the feedback - happy you enjoyed our wonderful home. The issue we had was that when our manager & housekeeper arrived, they were upset with the condition of the kitchen and other parts of the house (i.e. a fort made with sheets and blankets anchored with clothespins in a master closet). They pride themselves on leaving our home in pristine condition and were worried about finishing on time. We feel if a guests has a real problem as this person describes, it is up to them to give me or our wonderful manager a call. We normally spend 5 to 6 hrs. cleaning but if more time is needed we can then bring in extra help.
Christmas Week Vacation
Christmas Week Vacation
Avalon by the Sea provided our family with delightful Christmas week holiday. The home was beyond lovely and all the amenities were more than promised. The space was perfect for 4 couples and a little one (the owners even provided toys to use during the stay). We especially loved the heated swimming pool. Although the days were quite cold and the nights even colder- the pool stayed heated to 90 degrees and was a delight to use especially on the very cool nights. Of course we had to move quickly from the pool to the house when the swim was over. The owners were helpful as we needed them. Thank you for a wonderful family vacation spot.

We all enjoyed Avalon! We were very comfortable and had plenty of room for all of us including the other members of the family who live nearby to gather with us. We celebrate our traditional Family Christmas which includes my two sisters’ families. This year all were able to gather from Chicago, New York, St. Petersburg, Atlanta, Mt. Pleasant and Lexington. We had great fun as we gathered at Avalon to eat, play and enjoy Christmas greetings. The hospitality shown us was great! There were even some decorations greeting us to make the gathering more festive.

Excellent Vacation House
Excellent Vacation House
Our families enjoyed a great time at Avalon by the Sea. The house is spacious, well decorated and very nice. The kitchen was an excellent benefit, as we were able to have not only a beautiful chef's kitchen for preparing meals, but it is a great central gathering place. The kitchen is also well stocked with the miscellaneous needed for cooking (spices, salt, etc.) The bedrooms are all VERY spacious. There were several infants who stayed in pack in plays in the room with the adults, and there was more than enough room. The garage area is very large and oversized, providing great "beach stuff storage" in between trips to the beach. The house already had several nice beach things (umbrellas, chairs, boogie board, funnoodles, etc.) The beach is approximately 200 yards from the beach. However, there aren't many houses that are closer. It was very convenient and a short walk. The pool was a nice touch, providing a refreshing change to the ocean. While not huge, it was still a very nice thing to have and was well used. The rooftop deck provided a nice place for a morning coffee or evening cocktail. Being above it all was beautiful on clear nights when you can stargaze. For those who don't know, Isle of Palm's convenience to Charleston is an amazing thing. We have little kids, so we enjoyed the change of pace of being able to head to some of the attractions (parks, battleship, museums, etc.) Definitely a great way to do a multi family vacation. All in all, we had a wonderful time and were thoroughly impressed. We do plan on returning at some point in the future. Andrea was a breeze to work with and very helpful before, during and after our rental.

Our family was very pleased with this beach home. We have stayed on IOP and at Wild Dunes many times in the past, and we found this location to be ideal; close to the beach, close to downtown and close to the connector road to the mainland. The property is very well maintained. The kitchen has everything you need to encourage you to eat a lot more than you need to! The owners are very helpful, both before and after the vacation week. We certainly plan to come again.

BEST VACATION EVER!
BEST VACATION EVER!
We were pleasantly surprised when we pulled into the drive way of this beautiful beach home: IT WAS EVEN MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN THE PICTURES!!! The gorgeous decor and perfect lay out makes this vacation home ideal. We loved the beautiful colors inside of the home- a true reflection of beach life- with a twist of charleston charm. The pool was perfect for little ones to cool off after the beach. The kitchen was amazing to cook and hang out in. The open floor plan makes the main area a great place for many people to come together. If you are on the fence as to whether or not you should rent this home: DO IT! The owner was very kind and helpful. Thanks for a wonderful week of memories...we will surely come back!!

About the owner: We are retired from the Philadelphia area and now live in Beaufort, SC. Along with our daughter (Charleston school teacher) we looked and found 9 23rd Avenue - we hope to make it a great vacation spot for multiple families and friends for years to come.
Why the Owner Chose Isle of Palms:
We recently sold our beach house at the Jersey shore. We looked at numerous locations in Charleston - when we saw this home on Isle of Palms, we knew we had found the best of the bunch.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is surrounded by live oaks and palm trees. Besides being close to the beach, there is a park with basketball, tennis, playground just a quick bike ride away.
