  • Wonderful cottage

    "This is a charming cottage that has the feel of historic Sullivan's Island but sacrifices nothing in the way of modern amenities. It's homey and comfortable. It has many choices for outdoor lounging. The location is great as it is a block from the beach. Owners are hospitable and eager to make your stay enjoyable."

  • Best Beach House

    "This place is awesome!!! Plenty big for our whole family. And so very close to the beach. We have a toddler and it was so nice being that close and not having to lug all that goes with a toddler too far! Also, the house is really nice! And each bedroom has its own bathroom, can't beat that for a family vacation that involves multiple families! The kids room is great and i can see us growing into this location as the years go by! We will definitely book again!!! I highly recommend it!!!"

  • Great oceanfont home

    "Great home and great time on Sullivan's Island. First time in Charleston area and on island for family. The house is perfect, very nice, clean and has everything. The location of the house right on the beach is amazing. Feels like we're on a cruise ship with the ocean at our door. The beach is uncrowded and perfect for playing and for young kids, The small town on the island has a very good selection of restaurants and a coffee shot with excellent food. We cannot wait to come back. Thank you for sharing your great place. p.s. the property manager, Heather, was quick to respond and really helpful."

  • Review of 3113 Marshall

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was clean. I was very happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: great location. Love the house and layout. Was there for daughter's wedding at Stella Maris church. Perfect for two families. Kitchen was surprisingly beat up for a house like this. Also came home with lots of bites. Bedbugs? Surprised they didn't ask us to remove the mattress pad or quilt or laundering - just the sheets and pillow cases."

Sullivan's Island Travel Tips

At the entrance to Charleston Harbor is historic Sullivan's Island. This bustling beach community has a lot to offer visitors, especially history buffs who want to get their fill.

The barrier island offers family-friendly beaches and plenty of access to the glistening waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

Sullivan's Island Attractions

Sullivan's Island has a long military history and is the home of Fort Sullivan, known today as Fort Moultrie. The fort was the site of the first decisive patriot victory of the British Navy. It occurred on June 28, 1776, at the palmetto log fort, as it was held by colonial forced under Colonel William Moultrie. A flag on top of the fort inspired the state flag for South Carolina and in what would later become known as the Battle of Sullivan's Island, a celebration is held every year on June 28 to honor Carolina Day. The fort is also the only part of the National Park System that can trace the entire 171-year history of American seacoast defense.

The Charleston Light can be found at the northern entrance to Charleston Harbor and replaced the former Morris Island Light. The lighthouse helps to guide ships into the harbor. The lighthouse is also triangular shaped, much different from the typical build of these structures.

Sullivan's Island is surrounded by beaches so take the kids to the water and let them enjoy fun in the sun. They can build sand castles on the shore or learn to boogie board in the water.
