Isle of Palms house description

Need A Break? Head to The Beach! This adorable, well-stocked Beach Rental sits just a short walk to the beach (3/16th of a mile) and sleeps 9 people! It is located close to Charleston in the exclusive island community of Isle Of Palms, SC. You'll be close to the beach and a short drive from fantastic area restaurants, art galleries, and all of the Charleston area attractions- like the Battery, Fort Moultrie, and the SC Aquarium! Check out the secrets of the Hunley, tour the old time cotton plantations, walk through the open air piazza’s in the garden district, visit the myriads of one-of-a kind, eclectic area shops, or walk through the open-air flea markets at Meeting and Market streets! Or, if you want to simply relax and get away from it all, just pull your beach chair onto the quiet, sugar-sand beach and feel your cares drift away!

This cozy beach home is approximately 1700 square feet, with 3 Bedrooms and 2 Baths, Plus a 4th room that is used as a bedroom with a Queen Murphy (pull-down) bed. This is a very comfy, laid back, well-equipped, 'family-friendly, easy entertaining, friends-having-a-great-time' beach house that is comfortably equipped with 'all of the essentials of home': including a convection microwave, a coffee maker and a blender, all kitchen / baking utensils, cookie sheets and lots of pots and pans and very comfy furniture and beds. It's a few blocks to the beach, straight up 30th Avenue to the 30th Avenue beach access path on Palm Blvd.

It's close to great restaurants and funky shops here on the island, and it's only a 20 minute drive into Charleston, SC- plus it's only 10 minutes to Sullivan's Island. Isle of Palms has a GREAT, wide beach, with lots of white, sugar-spun sand and shelling (look for sand dollars, tulip shells, horseshoe crabs and the occasional starfish and conch shells). Many people para-sail or windsurf here also. This is a very popular home with many renters returning year after year, some for months at a time. Isle of Palms, nearby Sullivan's Island and Charleston all have STELLAR restaurants, lots of super shopping, a state-of-the-art Aquarium, and many museums and neat shops. Enjoy re-discovering history by strolling along the Charleston Battery, take a horse driven carriage ride and learn all about the area's history, visit the raised Hunley submarine, or explore Fort Moultrie... the choices are endless!

On Isle of Palms, you wil have an uncrowded, peaceful place to unwind- and when you are ready to 'kick up your heels', you can drive into Charleston and get as busy or as crazy as you'd like! There are lots of great seafood and steak restaurants, and a few really stellar oyster and sushi houses (if you're into that sort of thing)! Here, you'll have the best of both worlds- peace when you really need it, a pool downstairs for the kids when you don't feel like dealing with the sand and pitching tents / carrying stuff back from the beach, and at your disposal, all of the accoutrements of a big, large city for some fun and excitement when you are done with the laid back 'R&R' feel of Isle of Palms.

We, as owners, try to think of every little thing that would make our guests feel right at home. We care deeply about your having an incredible time here, like we do with our own friends and family. We have tried to stock the home with the things we would want on our own family vacation- board games, books, cards, a comfortably equipped kitchen, TV's with DVD's and phones in every room, comfortable furniture (and SUPER comfy beds), extra blankets and pillows, and all of the creature comforts of 'a home away from home'. We partner with a local property management company just in case y'all need anything during your stay (you are welcome to book through them if that makes you more comfortable) but if you book directly with us, you will not have to pay their 20% management fee on top of the booking rate. We allow pets-we have them, too; but we do require a pet deposit (per pet), similar to the other rentals in this area. All rental rates include cleaning at the end of your stay and linens (towels and sheets for the bed). Please pack extra beach towels.

Please feel free to call us or to email us any time with any additional questions that you may have. We thank you for your interest in our well-loved home! We hope you enjoy this home and your stay as much as we do when we come down ourselves- and we hope you'll be coming back for years to come. Enjoy your stay- and y'all come back now, ya' heah?!?

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1997

                      About the owner: We are a happily married couple (50 years strong) with a lovely family (two daughters and three grandchildren, plus one 'grand-bird')! We come to Isle of Palms to get away from the stress of daily life and to spend quality time with our family when the home is not rented. We are committed to making our guests feel like this is their 'home away from home' and we are happy to share our very loving home with others who need a fun, relaxing vacation, too! PS- recent owners and tenants have recently been hacked on rental property management websites, including VRBO and Home Away! NEVER send money by Western Union for your reservation! If you are asked by any owner to wire money via Western Union, it is most likely that the owner's account has been compromised and hacked, and the hackers 'act like' they are the owners to re-direct money to their personal accounts. We don't want to scare anyone, but want our tenants to be aware that this is happening! If asked to wire money via Western Union, please contact the site administrator (like VRBO) immediately, who will then contact the owner for you. If you have any questions and need to contact us directly via telephone rather than email, please contact VRBO and they will give you a legitimate contact number.

                      Why the Owner Chose Isle of Palms:
                      We have been coming to Isle of Palms for over 30 years. When we retired, we decided that it was time for us to enjoy a 'new phase' in our lives. We like this place so much more than the commercialism of Myrtle Beach, or even Hilton Head- you have the ability to golf, fish, boat, swim in the ocean, or to entertain friends- but you will also have all of the amenities of a 'big' city very close by when you want it. The restaurants here in Charleston are FIRST RATE, having been the recipient of Johnson and Wales, a celebrated culinary arts school. You can get anything you want here- fresh seafood abounds, as do great steakhouses, sushi, ethnic food- you name it, and Charleston has it! There are great shops all over the island, on nearby Sullivan's Island, and of course, all throughout downtown Charleston. The old market at the corner of Meeting and Market streets is not to be missed. Take a carriage ride or walking tour & learn about the city's rich history, visit the old forts, the incredible museums and even the state of the art Aquarium. There is so much to see and do- we are still discovering new places and things to do on every trip. But- we LOVE coming home to a peaceful, restful place that is comfy at the end of the day. Most of our guests return year after year, and have become 'like family' to us, too. We hope that you will love and care for our little 'slice of heaven' like we do and will love your time so much here that you will also put it on your calendar every year! We call it 'Starfish By The Sea'... because my daughter loves starfish and she also the Realtor who helped us find this place. A couple of important notes- this home is one of the very few that is on city water & sewer (most are on septic systems or wells)- so the water quality is superb... we didn't want 'funky tasting water'! We installed a new pool with a salt water chlorination system & a Mosquito control system so you can sit outside and swim at night without being 'bugged'! Enjoy!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We have a pool to cool off in and sunbathe around when we just don't feel like getting the kids home all gritty from the beach, and we just want to stay in and swim, relax and grill dogs and burgers by the pool. The pool has a unique 'salt water chlorination system', which is easier on kids and adults eyes and skin. We also have a mosquito control system in the yard and pool perimeter, so you could swim at night withough getting eaten alive by the coastal 'no-see-um's'. We've been told that that our home is very comfortable and we love entertaining our friends and family here... everyone has a really great time and they love joining us for a 'break' from normal life at the beach! Please do come and join us- we're glad to have y'all stay with us and relax at our littel slice of heaven, aka: 'Starfish By The Sea!
