Property description

Beautiful two-bedroom oceanfront cottage apartment with unbelievable second floor views and next-door to historic Fort Moultrie.

This is the best small vacation spot you'll find. The views from the second floor porch, bedroom and living area are unbelievable. The historic Fort Moultrie property and a large maritime forest extend for over a mile up the beach making for a seemingly deserted island during walks and runs. We have a birds-eye view of every boat that passes through the harbor whether it's a cruise ship, sailing ketch or shrimp boat.

Fishing out front is good and you're almost always guaranteed to see lots of bottle-nose dolphins. Swimming right of the rock jetty is good as we have a gentle slope with small, lapping waves.

You can walk up the beach in the morning to watch the sunrise over the ocean and then sit out front in our Adirondack chairs to see spectacular sunsets over the harbor and the steeples of old Charleston.

Our place is a 100 year-old Southern beach cottage that was built to house Army Corps nurses prior to WWI. While totally updated and in great condition, we've made sure to preserve the old beach cottage charm. It's wonderfully decorated but is all about comfort.

We have lots of books for reading and napping. Much to our chagrin, we also have wireless internet, cable, DVD and an iPod ready CD player. We are literally next door to historic Fort Moultrie that is now a very uncrowded National Park but played an integral role in the Revolutionary War, Civil War, WWI and WWII.

Sullivan's Island is not a tourist town. It is a beautiful and quaint village island. It's mostly made up of full time residents. It is very safe and family friendly. You can bicycle down to the town center for great restaurants with outdoor dining, playgrounds, tennis, basketball, beach volleyball, galleries and a small grocery store. Lots of folks think of Sullivan's Island as 'Mayberry by the Sea'.
