Property description

Goat Island is a wonderful 3 mile slice of sea island located on the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway between Mt. Pleasant and Isle of Palms, South Carolina. The island is accessible only by boat. Use your own boat or arrange for a pick you up and drop off with us.

Our 700 sq. ft. heated and cooled cottage is equipped with all linen and towels. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances with plenty of cooking equipment. You can also cook outside on the grill. Sunrise and sunset can be viewed from the property on the rooftop deck, a perfect spot also for bird watching and sun bathing.

Our house is located on the north end of the island which is very secluded and quiet. Capers Island Heritage Preserve and Bull Island, located in the Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge, are a short boat ride north and offer excellent fishing and crabbing adventures. The Isle of Palms City Marina is a quick boat ride away and offers casual and fine dining as well as a fully stocked marina store for those last minute items. Charleston, Fort Sumter and Patriots Point are all accessible by boat. You may never need your car while you are visiting but if you do, we are one of the few rentals on Goat Island that offer a boat slip in Wild Dunes Yacht Harbor and parking for your vehicle.

Goat Island is a very special place and one of the few liveable islands in the Charleston area maintaining it's natural state. Depending on the time of year you have access to oysters, clams, shrimp and all the fresh fish you can catch. You can do as much or as little as you want on Goat Island. Your comfort and pleasure are our priorities while you are visiting.

Thanks for visiting!

Capers Island by boat

Goat Island is a small sea island located just off of the Isle of Palms and accessible only by boat. Our dock is located on the Atlantic Intercoastal Waterway in a "no wake zone". If you do not have your own boat, Dennis and I will assist in getting you to and fro the island. Once you arrive, you will not want to leave, but if you do, it is just a couple minutes back to the IOP Marina.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: Dennis and I purchased our first piece of property on Goat Island in 1985. We vacationed every summer with our family in the islands "natural state". In 1996 we decided to build a house on Goat Island and move from Pennsylvania with our three children. We've had wonderful years and created an enormous amount of memories that we all treasure. Now we would love to share that same experience with you. Goat Island Gatherings is around the bend, but a world away. Come loose yourself in the little tropical paradise.

Why the Owner Chose Goat Island:
Goat Island Gatherings is located at the north end of Goat island. What that means is it is very private and secluded. You could go all weekend without seeing another person if that is what you choose. Our end of the island is private and only shared with 3 other property owners, none of which live on Goat Island full time. It's amazing!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love to relax and watch the dolphins swim in the Intracoastal Waterway and the pelicans feed. The sunrises are extraordinary. Kingfishers, egrets and herons feed all day. Our house is located in a "no wake zone" from April thru September which means your boat will be safe on the front dock and boat traffic moves slow and easy.
