This lovely cottage has been updated and beautifully decorated in a fine southern coastal flair. It is surrounded by live oaks draped with Spanish moss, and is central to all of Seabrook Island's charms. Come, relax, and enjoy Seabrook's uncrowded beaches; take a morning stroll on the nature trail; kayak on the many creeks and waterways; or bike on the quiet streets of the island. Seabrook is a lovely place to honeymoon or to reconnect with your loved ones and build memories to last a lifetime. Plus, we have just provided 4 Brand new Genesis 29' Beach Bikes for your enjoyment! Don't worry about bringing your own bikes or having to rent them when you get here. They will be waiting on you and your family to tour the island! 6 Tommy Bahama Backpack Beach Chairs are also there so leave those at home as well. Just pack up the car and come on down to Seabrook!!! A Brand New Weber Spirit Stainless Steel Grill has also just been added to grill those catches from the day or just a great steak or burger for the kids. Amenity Cards are available for the Full Seabrook Island Club experience. We keep our rates low so you have the option!!! $25/day or $150.00/week for the cottage The Sleeping Loft has just been completely customized to sleep 5 with 4 built in galley style beds with drawers and cubby's for storage. The 5th bed is a fold out twin sleeper sofa. Also in 'Kid Land' is a Flat Screen/DVD Combo TV and X Box Gaming System so kids bring those games!

Enjoy your morning coffee and breakfast, or have wine and an intimate conversation while seated inside the rear screened-in porch that features plenty of privacy. You can use the front porch for sitting in the sun, reading a book, or just to watch the deer as they wander by in the evenings. Inside the front door is the comfortable heart of the cottage, a spacious combined living room/dining room area with fireplace, HDTV with DVD, and plenty of seating. The master bedroom is bright and cheerful and has its own private bath. It features a queen bed with a Thermarest mattress, down pillowtop, and deluxe linens that will spoil you in comfort. A flat screen HDTV in the corner will provide the morning news while you enjoy that first cup of coffee. The second bedroom offers a full size bed (and Trundle for those little ones) with a down pillowtop and deluxe linens as well. If you enjoy a good read, the second bedroom has a well stocked bookcase with an excellent selection of books appropriate for taking to the beach or porch. In the Upstairs 3rd Bedroom/ sleeping loft you will find it is decorated with colorfully painted fish and sea life, Flat ScreenTV/DVD Combo with X Box gaming system. As of October 2013 the loft has been totally customized to sleep 4 with a 5th with the twin sleeper sofa. The galley kitchen is very functional and well equipped. You will also appreciate having a washer and dryer for those occasions when the laundry needs cleaning.

If you wish, take advantage of the fabulous new community Lake House facility with its well-equipped fitness center, heated indoor pool, large outdoor pool, basketball court, playground, and many varied exercise classes. Or, explore old historic Charleston and discover the many fine restaurants, historic homes, old slave market, and art galleries. Guided horse and carriage tours of the battery and surrounding areas are also available and highly recommended. You will also want to visit the Ashley River Plantations at Drayton Hall, Magnolia House, and Middleton Place.

Freshfields Village is located just outside the Seabrook Island gate and has many excellent shops, fine restaurants, a wonderful grocery with a large impressive wine selection, and a sports store where you can purchase everything you need for the beach. Don't miss Friday evening at Freshfields! Picnic on the lawn with a glass of wine and listen to a live band while the kids run, dance and play. Or take the kids to watch an outdoor movie on the lawn on Wednesday night.

Our cottage is meticulously maintained and frequently updated to maintain a fresh and stylish decor. The artwork, furnishings, and room colors have been carefully selected to reflect a sense of casual Low Country beach luxury. You'll find ceiling fans and ample lighting through-out. Underneath the cottage there is an enclosed utility shower that's perfect for rinsing off the beach sand before trekking upstairs. There's also plenty of room to stow away your gear--beach chairs, bikes, and fishing/crabbing equipment--or for children to play. And, covered parking for two cars is provided. Our cottage offers wireless high speed internet, satellite TV, local telephone service, and a gas grill. With the exception of beach towels, all linens are provided, and end-of-stay cleaning for 7 nights or more is included at no additional cost. Sorry but pets and smoking are not allowed.

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: We love our Seabrook 'Getaway Home' and love to share and make memories with our friends and guests! We love the low country and visit often through weekend trips and summer vacations with family and friends. The beaches of South Carolina and the Charleston area are especially significant to us because we both went to The College of Charleston. Our college tradition continues with our daughter (Hannah) who is a Freshman at The College of Charleston! We love the charm and grace of old historic Charleston and spent many hours wandering the alleys and streets, enjoying the night life, and admiring the architecture. We love coming down to Seabrook Island every chance we get! We keep our home updated and decorated in the low country decore... We love adding pieces we find to the house to give it the personal touch.

                  Why the Owner Chose Tarpon Pond:
                  Seabrook is a private gated island community. Every effort has been taken to preserve the natural beauty of this low country paradise. We enjoy the centuries old live oaks, the vast salt marsh vistas, and the pristine beaches. Deer, raccoons, foxes, and bobcats are sighted daily here.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Seabrook is a wonderful escape. We have 4 Brand New Genesis Beach Bikes for your use to explore the island plus 6 Brand New Tommy Bahama Backpack Beach chairs for those trips to the beach AND a Brand New Weber Spirit Stainless Steel Outdoor Grill to cook those wonderful catches from the sea and those steaks/burgers for the kids. We enjoy the quiet solitude and casual life of the island. Our cottage is a great place to relax after spending time at the beach or visiting the historical Charleston sights nearby. Spring is our favorite time of year in Charleston. It is also the time of year that many of the homes and gardens in the 'South of Broad' district are open to the public. It is surprising what you'll find while wandering the small side streets between East Bay, Meeting, and King streets. We love the secret gardens and unique architecture of the downtown area. The self paced walking tours with guides that can be purchased from the Borders bookstore on Meeting St are a great way to get to know the history of Charleston. Just find a place to park your car and you can explore for hours. At the end of the day, we eat dinner at one of the many delightful restaurants near the old market, but since we both worked at AW Shuck's during our years at The College of Charleston we have to stop by there first! We are still great friends with the owner and we can get you the best table! If we wish to escape the downtown crowd, we head back toward the cottage and stop by the 'Mustard Seed' or 'Athens' both on Maybank Hwy on James Island. Or cross over the bridge onto John's Island and eat at The 'Fat Hen' or the 'Wild Olive' !!! This could be the best food local food you will ever eat in South Carolina...period!!!
