Property description

Enjoy our Goat Island Vacation in a secluded island oasis 300 feet from the Wild Dunes Harbor Course, yet in a beautiful paradise with a sea kayaks and SUP's available at the marina. The views are spectacular, and the privacy is unmatched. Our island is teeming with deer, clams, oysters, eagles, osprey and the waters around the dock are full of fish. This is a totally protected and secluded getaway on an island that is half in perpetual conservation easement yet right beside the Isle of Palms. Bookings are quickest if you email us directly.

We have people on fishing trips, honeymooners, romantics, naturalists, and families who love this island-within-an- island paradise. Its hard to find another place which will rest the soul like this. There is sitting on the dock on the Intracoastal Waterway and fishing, watching boats go, reading, or just relaxing for hours. There is the nature walk or bicycling down the sandy road. There is reading on the porch in the breeze. There are the many games and books in the house. There is the huge farm kitchen with big pots and a gas grill for your catch. There is the oyster steamer for oysters and clams. And there is Big Mabel...

In addition, we can provide for fishing charters, lowcountry boils, oyster roasts, and much more.

It amazes most. Please feel free to call and ask for details. I am always happy to talk about Goat Island!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Local South Carolinian all of my life and for the 12 generations before me. We take great pride in our country, the state, the Lowcountry and especially Goat Island, and we hope you will come to visit!

Why the Owner Chose Goat Island:
This island is absolutely unmatched anywhere; very relaxed, yet very sophisticated when it needs to be. We keep it island-y and beach-y on the outside, comfy and modern on the inside.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Foremost for me, I love the peace and seclusion. Secondarily, it is a wonderful place to be. We have alot of people who want to come here and write or work on a project, as it offers great opportunities for deep thought, meditation, and enlightenment. Sometimes I come here to work on a project and enjoy the focus time. Sometimes its just to relax and enjoy nature. ** The fishing is EXCELLENT, and I have guides who can help you with that if you'd like. ** Morgan Creek Grill is about 1500 feet away and has amazing sunsets, dinner, dinner boar cruises, harbor cruises, and live music. ** Tidal Wave next door rents jet skis and takes us parasailing, skiiing, and wakeboarding. ** There is a beautiful sandy road which runs the length of the island for running, cycling, walking. ** The back beach on the marsh offers miles of exploration and tons of bait for fishing. ** Half of the island is in Conservation Easement and available for birding, exploring, seeing deer, osprey, and everything else you can imagine on an island. Come see for yourself; you won't want to leave.
