    "We had the pleasure of staying on Sullivan's Island at Rachels' beautiful home the last week of May 2014. Beginning with our initial inquiry through VRBO until we checked out Rachel, and her hospitable neighbor Mr Kurtz, provided us with first class treatment. The home is charming and literally minutes from the beach and most other amenities including the beautiful city of Charleston. From our daily bike rides to evenings on the rooftop deck we could not have had a more relaxing week. Thank You Rachel!"

  • lots of fun

    "pleasant house...comfortable furniture...literally, directly behind "restaurant row"....convenience leads to multiple visitors parking on lawn daily....very close to beach, too some things are a bit "tired". (coffee maker, toaster, some furnishings) but all in all we found it to be a good value"

  • Best kept secret on Sullivan's Island, SC

    "We wanted a nice large vacation rental near the ocean for a special event for graduation from College and a family vacation after. We have a large extended family so we needed a big place with lots of large rooms, a pool and a hot tub. This place had it all! The description and the pictures were very accurate and the owner was very helpful throughout the rental process and during our stay. he home was beautiful and well appointed. We felt like we were staying with a close relative as there were family pictures on the table, lots of pots and pans, very large and well stocked kitchen with many appliances, also a wine fridge, a beer fringe and an ice machine too - wow !! All the bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and the beds were comfy. Lots of open places to sit and relax but still are close to everyone. The open upstairs walkway was very cool and even an area to set up a laptop for doing work if you need to. The lower area has a large playroom for kids of any age. There are plenty of ceiling fans everywhere to keep you cool inside and the A/C was quiet but very reliable. Now for the outside, the pool area and hot tub were awesome. Kidney shaped pool for swimming laps, playing games, and just floating around. There were many tables and chairs on the deck area, the pool area and even near the hot tub. There is a private balcony off the master bedroom for relaxing in the evening. There are also three levels of outdoor seating from the ground floor with a table that seats 12, second level with a bench swing, to the third level seating area – great views. There is a short walk to the beach which was almost empty during our visit- and there is a long beach to the water during the day for low tide so lots of room to spread out and sun bathe, Frisbee, etc. We have stayed at other rentals - this home is a 10++ in our opinion – nothing comes close. This home has a lot of wood floors, stairs, walls and that gives it a special character and warmth you do not find in many of the modern family rentals you see. I highly recommend you stay here if you want to experience the real feel of Charleston and also the charm of Sullivan’s Island."

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.
