Isle of Palms house description
Gorgeous Isle of Palms Beach House with Spectacular Ocean Views on Quiet, Safe Cul de Sac Leading to Beach
This open, sunny 6-bedroom beach house is perfect for families as it is located on one of the very sought after quiet, charming side streets right off the sand dunes and away from the more crowded beach areas on the island. With 7 porches, fabulous ocean views and a 60 second walk down to the beach -- this is Island Living at its best!
The house has two main bedroom suites, with full bath, ideal for two families and an additional four bedrooms for kids or other guests. All six bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms.
1st Floor: On this entry level floor you will find the secondary living room area designed for kids to have a separate play area for board games and watching TV, allowing parents to sometimes enjoy a more relaxing main living room upstairs and adult conversation. There are three bedrooms on this floor, all with bathrooms en-suite. The master bedroom on this floor has a queen-sized bed, sitting area and has a nice bathroom with large tiled shower. It has double glass door access to a peaceful side porch, which runs the length of the house. The two other bedrooms have two twin beds in each room -- in one of those rooms, we have pulled the two twins together and made bed up as a King (can be easily separated back into twins if necessary).
2nd Floor: The second level is the main living area of the beach house and is designed with vaulted ceilings and a large great living room that opens onto the dining room and open kitchen. Here you can enjoy two gorgeous porches facing the ocean, with fabulous views and breezes. This level is flooded with light and is a marvelous place to relax with your friends and family.
Also on this floor is flat screen TV, DVD and Bose speakers for your ipods.
The kitchen is spacious and has plenty of counter space with bar stools for friends to gather round and talk while you prepare your meals for grilling on the outside porch grill.
Behind the open kitchen/dining room area are two additional bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. One is ideal for children as it has a double under single bunk bed, suitable for three small children or two older children. The other bedroom has a queen bed, with full bath, with access to the front porch of the house and terrific ocean views. It is off this second floor bedroom that you will find the laundry room with washer and dryer, tucked away behind the elevator, which is facing the kitchen. The elevator is designed primarily for luggage and groceries, is very small and will not accommodate a wheel chair, or more than one person.
It must be used with caution as it may break easily if misused. The elevator only goes to second floor (kitchen area), not to Master Suite on third floor.
3rd Floor: This floor consists entirely of one very large, sunny master bedroom, which includes a king bed, sitting alcove with desk, master bath with jacuzzi tub and walk-in shower, walk-in closet, and access to a small porch with spectacular views of the ocean and beach that stretch for miles in front of the house. This master bedroom also includes a flat screen TV.
Children staying at the beach house will also enjoy a ping pong table on one of the covered back porches and a basketball hoop/with movable stand which can be wheeled out on the driveway for a spirited group basketball game. We also have several bikes for renters to use, however, they can also be rented nearby. The street is very quiet with little traffic as it is a cul de sac, which few people venture down unless they are residents. There is an outside shower for your convenience under the house so that renters can shower after returning from the beach.
This home also comes with high speed internet (Internet services are not guaranteed to work with your equipment. We cannot provide support for guest's personal computer systems, nor can we guarantee the WiFi will be operational).
The house if very near the Isle of Palms Marina, where you can rent jet skis, kayaks, take boat rides to the barrier islands, etc. Also, the famous Wild Dunes golf resort is three short blocks from our home, where non-members can -- for a fee -- use their restaurant, tennis and golf facilities.
MUST BE 30 years of age or older to rent this home!
As a note of caution we would like to remind you that this home is located in a residential area, and the community is very sensitive to inappropriate noise levels emanating from rental homes particularly in the evening hours. Therefore we cannot allow parties, and we must prohibit large gatherings after 10pm. The noise ordinance is strictly enforced by the Isle of Palms Police. Violations of the noise ordinance could result in fines and/or eviction.

We loved your beautiful home!!! Thank you for renting to us!! It is more amazing than even the pictures! We walked in and all of us agree it has the "WOW" factor!! It was our favorite vacation ever!! We all loved staying there and all agreed when we come back to Isle of Palms we want to stay there again!! It was beyond our greatest expectations!! Every family had their own floor which was perfect for the little ones on one floor and the newly weds on the other. Joe and I LOVED the spacious and beautiful master suite!! Every morning we had coffee on the master bedroom's porch and every evening we would stand on it to look at the stars!! It was our favorite spot! You had everything there to make our visit perfect from the stocked kitchen, to the spacious gathering places, the many porches where all the views were spectacular, the wonderful beds, games, a few toys and books for the kids and all the beach equipment!! Plus I loved the way you decorate and we all immediately felt at home! Being only 1 minute walk from the beach was perfect for our family of 8-especially our 3 and 4 year old grandchildren. It was a joy to watch our grand babies see the ocean for the very first time! Also your renters guide really came in handy as we went to Charleston a couple of times and even ate at 2 of the restaurants you recommended. Thank you for providing the opportunity to bless us with these precious memories. It was a joy doing business with you and your husband!! We will rent Palm's Porch again!!

We just returned from a week at Palms Porch, and can't say enough about the fabulous home and wonderful owners. The owners were extremely responsive throughout the booking process, and touched base with us upon our arrival to make sure everything was in place. The house is perfect for large groups- great location on a quiet part of the beach, only a few blocks from the city marina and all the amenities needed to host a large group. We had 3 families in the house, and never felt crowded. Beach views are available from the main porch, and amazing from the top bedroom. The kitchen is well stocked, and there are bikes/chairs/umbrellas available for use at the beach. In addition, the house is very clean and newly decorated. All families agreed we would definitely rent this home again, and recommend the home to our friends.

Perfect, peaceful week with family
Perfect, peaceful week with family
We absolutely loved every minute of our stay here! Both my wife's family and my family loved staying together in this beautiful house. There was ample room for all 8 of us to be comfortable. Booking was easy. The owners were very responsive and helpful. We emailed them several times and always received prompt answers. The house was very clean, and the owners called us on the day of our arrival to make sure everything was in order. The pictures were accurate. All the bedrooms were clean and comfortable. Having ceiling fans in the bedrooms was a blessing. It was hot and humid outside, but the house stayed cool and comfortable. The kitchen was FULLY stocked with everything we could have possibly needed. Cooking for 8 was never a problem. The kitchen and dining area were clean and spacious (and who could ever complain about the beautiful views and natural light that floods the living space!). The decks were wonderful and there is an expansive ocean view from the front deck as well as the 3rd floor suite. Having coffee on the deck off of the dining room was the perfect way to start the day. This house is in a great location on a quiet cul-de-sac. If you're looking for something a little bit away from the high volume touristy parts of the beach, we highly recommend this property. It's just a short walk (~1 minute without having to cross a busy street) to the less crowded end of the IOP beach. We miss this lovely house already and hope to have our families stay in this property again in the future!

This is simply the loveliest beach house I have ever rented! We spent five days here with a group that ranged in age from 20 to 87 and every one of us was as happy as an Isle of Palms clam. The house is beautifully decorated and perfectly designed to accommodate a large group with spaces for big gatherings as well as cozy little hideaways for quiet time alone--my personal favorite was a comfy hammock tucked away on a cool and shady porch off the kitchen. The kitchen is extensively outfitted with everything one could need from large appliances to the smallest utensil. There were even a few local cookbooks. We had a cookout one night and were delighted to find a grill big enough to cook everyone's burgers at once. The owners are incredibly accessible (and nice) and provide a very comprehensive and thorough guide to both the house and the surrounding area. We tried several of their restaurant suggestions and were pleased every time. The neighborhood is beautiful and perfect for long walks and bike rides, while the beach is remarkably not crowded, even during a big graduation weekend, when we were there. In short, I have nothing but raves for this property. The owners have literally thought of everything, providing renters with an absolutely perfect house in a magnificent setting.

This was by far the loveliest and most comfortable vacation rental imaginable. The setting was ideal and the accommodations couldn't have been more tasteful. The spacious bedrooms and private baths were ideal for both adults and children and the space was laid out in a way that allowed ample room for both socializing and quiet time. The amenities, including an excellent outdoor grill, a large hammock and beach chairs, made this the perfect beach retreat. The numerous private porches made entertaining easy and enjoyable and the view of the beach was an added plus. The house and grounds were in impeccable condition and I can't recommend this vacation rental enough to families with children as well as groups of adults who want to share a special getaway experience.

We celebrated a wonderful family Thanksgiving in this beautiful house complete with the traditional "turkey dinner" which we prepared in the fully equipped kitchen. The house is beautifully decorated and has a great floor plan for a large group. We had two indoor areas where we could gather together, or each bedroom provided a nice place for a little solitude too. The view from the outdoor deck was very good, especially the top floor master bedroom. I don't know if we have every stayed in a property that was more welcoming than this one. The owners have everything arranged to make you feel like an invited guest.

Lovely home, responsive owner
Lovely home, responsive owner
The house is larger than we anticipated...we literally got lost inside! Plenty of room for our group of 8 women. Gorgeous views from the many balconies. We were so pleased to find a nice, clean kitchen with plenty of cookware. The owner was great at communicating before, during, and after our stay. I really appreciate that! Very prompt return of the security deposit. Thank you for a lovely weekend in IOP and a stress-free rental experience!

My family just spent 10 days at this beautiful property and wanted for nothing. The house is within steps of the ocean and has an ocean view from several rooms. The kitchen is well furnished. The large dining table easily seats 12 people. The large grill on the picturesque deck will work with gas or charcoal and also has a smoker. We grilled seafood almost every night. The atmosphere is relaxed comfort. We enjoyed our stay here very much and will definitely rent it again for another family vacation. We recommend it without reservation. The owners are delightful people and return all emails and phone calls promptly.

We had a wonderful stay at the property. The owner was very responsive, pleasant to deal with and communicated everything we needed to know very effectively. The photos gave a very accurate depiction of the property. Actually, the kitchen and main living space were bigger than they looked in the photo. The location was so close to the beach - fabulous. And the house was very clean and everything was in working order- absolutely no problems. Half of the rooms were geared towards children so the decor for three of us six adults who stayed in those rooms left much to be desired but each of us loved having our own bathroom - a big plus. I would recommend this property to others, particularly to families with kids.

Great Vacation Home
Great Vacation Home
Our family of 11 loved the house. Plenty of room for everyone. We especially enjoyed the kitchen/living area and the deck with all the great chairs. We spent lots of time drinking our coffee in the morning and just hanging out together. The house was equipped with everything we needed to make our vacation perfect. A bathroom in every bedroom was wonderful. All the porches made it possible for everyone to find a place to escape for some quiet time. We love Isle of Palms and all of the wonderful restaurants in the area. Can't wait to stay again!

About the owner: Michael and I both live in Washington, D.C., however, Michael grew up in South Carolina and we love to vacation at our beach home on the Isle of Palms with our three children, extended family and friends. While we have traveled to many parts of the world, it's hard to beat the beautiful beaches, the marshes, the barrrier islands, the wildlife and fabulous weather when visiting the Isle of Palms. We also just love spending time in downtown Charleston -- which we find to be one of the most charming cities in America, with fabulous gourmet restaurants!
Why the Owner Chose Isle of Palms:
Michael's family owned this beach house many years ago, however, we just recently did a major renovation and turned the original three bedroom house into a six bedroom, six-bath home as we wanted it to be big enough for us to invite our extended family while on vacation. Before we renovated, we looked at many other homes for sale, however, we decided very quickly that our location was unbeatable as it is practically beach front, is on a beautiful quiet beach side street and is very close to the marina, wild dunes resort, and only 20 minutes to Charleston.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The unique benefits of this home are the extremely short hop, skip & jump to the beach itself, the quiet, safe street and the seven porches with many fabulous ocean views. And if you enjoy bright, open living areas, you'll love the layout of this home. The house is also a 5 minute drive to the marina where you can rent motor boats, jet skis, kayaks, banana boats, etc. Also, the world renowned Wild Dunes resort is a 5 minute drive away as well, where you can, for a fee, play golf, get tennis lessons, and rent bikes. Charleston itself is an easy, scenic 20 minute car ride over the bridge, which is a huge plus as well.
