  • Great location close to beach!

    "This vintage home well suited our needs. We didn't want a fancy new place but a roomy and comfortable home and this was it. It is very large with new bathrooms, wonderful porch too. Very close to beach which our grandchildren loved. Owner very responsive to any questions and concerns. We would rent here again."

  • Comfortable Place

    "Had a family gathering with 8 adults. Plenty of space. Lots of areas to gather and relax, either inside or outside. Easy walk to the beach. Kitchen was well equipped. TV’s are old but functional. When back in the Charleston area, would stay here. Looked like construction on a new house was about to begin at the adjacent lot."

  • Great location. Needs TLC.

    "Wonderful old-style, rambling beach house with a few maintenance issues. Bathtub with peeling paint (revealing original rose color) is messy and unacceptable. Gas grill tank was empty and porch floors badly needed mopping-- which I did. Some of the light fixtures-- most notably exterior lights, which were needed) either didn't work or had bad bulbs. Great location within hearing of the surf and walking distance to restaurants but in a residential neighborhood with plenty of parking. Lovely Atlantic Ocean beach was a pleasnt five minute walk. Wonderful for a large family group."

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.
