  • Clean,roomy, and great location

    "Our family of five stayed here and had a ball. The house was in great condition, with very new looking flooring, paint, cabinets, etc. The master bedroom is big and bright. The bathrooms are not large, but clean and pretty new looking as well. There were beach chairs and umbrellas. Wonderful breeze on the front porch with partial ocean views. We will be back!"

  • Thanksgiving Getaway

    "Our stay on Sullivan's Island was just the break my husband and I needed from our busy schedules. The weather was quite cool but sunny and we walked/ran the beach everyday. The condo while quite compact was very neat and clean and had everything we needed to make it a lovely stay. I even baked a turkey with all the trimmings and had everything there to make it work. Very enjoyable stay."

  • We love this place

    "This is our third time staying in this house and we love it. We have brought our family of 13 here and everyone slept great (3 small children). The 1st floor is a living area all it's own and sliding glass doors take you right into the back yard. The master in that area is great and we appreciate having a washer and dryer. We have been able to access the beach from this yard without difficulty except for once when it was marshy, and of course then we needed to use the public boardwalk, which is just a couple of houses down. We just got back from the beach today and walked the private path. We've cooked many meals in the kitchen and also have gone the short distance to surrounding restaurants, including those in Charleston. This is a perfect location. The large furnished deck is screened in and we've played games and put puzzles together with our family. We have stayed here as a couple also and it is a nice getaway for a romantic weekend"

  • Wonderful!

    "My wife and I absolutely loved this cottage. A wonderful beachy combination of comfort, beach front location and rustic old style charm. The unit really felt like the "beach". The owner, Heather, was delightful and extremely helpful. The unit was very clean, comfortably decorated and well equipped. As other reviewers have noted, the porch is a wonderful place to sit--having coffee in the morning or cocktails at the end of the day enjoying the sunset (while beach front, the unit sits on the southern end of the island and interestingly allows a western--hence great view of the sunset). The unit is small, so great for a couple or family with a couple small kids. There are a number of good and fun restaurants on Sullivans Island or in nearby Mt. Pleasant--and of course Charleston is also close. The Sullivans restaurants offer an easy beach vibe--we never bothered to leave Sullivans. Just a great, great place. Good place to stare at the ocean, walk on the beach, sleep, enjoy a cocktail and watch some sports on TV. Very relaxing."

Sullivan's Island Travel Tips

Some Interesting Information on Sullivan’s Island Lodging

Sullivan’s Island is a beautiful barrier island located just north of Charleston Harbor with a small full-time population, making Sullivan’s Island lodging ideal for a relaxed family vacation. Part of the charm of renting Sullivan’s Island condos is that you can rest assured that you are not setting foot into a tourist trap as there are no transient lodging options such as hotels, motels, bed-and-breakfasts, and the like. With Charleston beach rentals on Sullivan's Island, you get the true island experience without the maddening throngs of tourists.

You Cannot Stay in Charleston Rentals Without Seeing the Lighthouse

It is virtually impossible to book Charleston rentals without making time to see the New Charleston Lighthouse. It was built in 1962 and is truly a one-of-a-kind lighthouse as no other like it exists in the United States. Towering 162 feet and fitted with the most powerful candlepower lens, it can be seen from as far as 26 miles away. It was built to replace the old lighthouse, which was eroded. It is actually about one-quarter mile out to sea. It is worth mentioning that this lighthouse will not look anything like any lighthouse you have ever seen; it looks more like an airport control tower. It is definitely worth a visit and not far from most Sullivan’s Island condos.

Sullivan’s Island Condos Nestled in a Bit of Charleston History

The town itself was incorporated in 1817 and was then called Moultrieville. Since its incorporation, not much has changed as far as the requirements. There are no lean-tos or shacks, and all lots must consist of at least one-half acre. This is perhaps why so many of these Charleston rentals are so pristine. Other historic city regulations require the protection of the natural environment, especially along the coast. Additionally, the island was a long time military barrier against invaders, so across the island you may see such remnants. Some previous fortifications may even be Sullivan’s Island lodging options!

Old Fort Moultrie near Sullivan’s Island Lodging

Just minutes from Sullivan’s Island condos, you can find Fort Moultrie, a particularly interesting historical site. Built during the Revolutionary War and named for its commander, it was devastated during the British attacks. Later rebuilt in 1798, it was then destroyed by an 1804 hurricane. However, it was rebuilt again and again and used during each major war the U.S. has been involved in up through WWII. If you have an interest in history, this site is worth a visit during your stay in Sullivan’s Island lodging.
