LOWCOUNTRY LIVING, ELEGANT, YET, COMFORTABLE

This spacious home, on beachfront with glorious views, is designed for a large gathering of family and/or friends. The main living area, warmed by heart-of-pine bead-board and flooring, has five sofas to accommodate hanging-out and visiting. Antique dining table seats 10-16 with four stools at the adjoining kitchen counter/bar (plus a high chair for tots).

Both areas look out over the set-down screen porch with tables, chairs, rockers, hammock, and sundeck onto the beautiful white beach and ocean. You are just close enough to see dolphins frolick from inside the home.

Pool safety with small children concerns us, so we stick with the shared pool close by instead, and keep mini sun shade pools, 62x62x48 for guests to set up on deck if they choose. Also, the golf cart is a fun way to scoot about the island.

PRIVACY!

Designed for congregating, this home also offers individual privacy. Each of the bedrooms has its own HDTV with cable, four of these have ocean views and three have doors onto the upper level deck. The large kid's room has been painted to resemble an aquarium. It has two sets of bunks with trundles under each.

We are set up to very comfortably accommodate 10 adults with 2-6 children, or 12 is our FIRM MAX for ALL-ADULT GROUPS, for your comfort and our home's safety.

Free private XFinity WIFI and digital cable TV.

The underneath of this home is a grill-out, hang-out, play area, white washed and open-air, 14 ft ceiling. It has a gas and charcoal grill, a tiki bar area, ping pong table, hammock chairs, GOLF CART, and various outdoor/beach games, as well as outdoor table and chairs. We keep 8-11 or so beach/sand chairs (along with the resin adirondacks that are great for beach), a large cooler, and an awesome all-terain Wonder Wheeler to tote your things across your private boardwalk and down the dune. I also have info for a service that will set you up with wood and canvas loungers and umbrellas each morn. Call or email to ask about our pool access.

Bed linens and bath towels can be provided. We use 100% cotton linens, and 100% cotton cover, top-line hypoallergenic pillows in all rooms. Bear in mind please that 100% cotton wrinkles, and sunbathing products stain terribly. Sheets and towels are certainly guaranteed clean, but not free from such small product stains. You may rent linens from a service if preferred, or bring your own.

We now have a golf cart availble for use by licensed drivers only, with signed waver!

LOCATION... LOCATION... LOCATION!

We choose this specific spot to build for the closest legal proximity to the beach (20 yds down our private boardwalk), safe swimming areas, and non-crowded privacy from the commercial area, a 3/4 mile walk.

You are 3/4 mile walk or drive down the beachfront to the Banana Cabana, Long Island Cafe, Coconut Joe's, Acme Lowcountry Grill, and many great restaurants. 3/4 mile the other way to The Boathouse Restaurant on Breech Inlet. The world famous Windjammer beach bar offers up live entertainment.

While enjoying the Island Life, you can go swimming, body surfing, play volleyball, dine at oceanfront restaurants, bike the beaches, jog, cruise the intercoastal waterway, sail, surf, windsurf, take in some live music, shop the boutiques. Check out the scuba diving or go deep sea fishing. Relax at a spa or try horseback riding. Kayak, parasail, water-ski, fish, go 'Crabin or Shrimpin,' walk the beach for shells, take a sunset cruise, charter a small boat, explore uninhabited islands, play some of the South’s finest golf courses.

You are only ten miles from the Historic District of Downtown Charleston. Take in the charm of this beautiful city and learn more about Charleston on a horse-drawn carriage ride, or tour Charleston Bay and Fort Sumter by boat. South Carolina Aquarium, world class restaurants, the Charleston City Open Market and shopping galore, live theater, live music, museums, and more.

You are just five minutes from Mount Pleasant Towne Centre: an upscale shopping experience in classic southern style. With over 65 national and local tenants, including: Banana Republic, Gap, Bath & Body Works, Caché, Men's Wearhouse and Old Navy, as well as the regions only J.Jill, Coldwater Creek and Francesca's. Sample exquisite home-made candy at Sweet Julep's Candy & Gifts, or dine at PF Changs, 5 Guys Burgers, Longhorn Steakhouse, TGI Friday's, Atlanta Bread Company, - there is sure to be a culinary diversion to suit your palette. After dinner, stroll the lush, tree-lined streets or relax at the luxurious Palmetto Grande 16-screen theatre. Ten minutes away you'll find famous Shem Creek shrimp boats and seafood restaurants. The Yorktown WWII destroyer and several historical plantations are all within easy driving distance as well.

Again, We are set up to very comfortably accommodate 10 adults with 2-6 children, or 12 adults. Isle of Palms now strictly enforces their CODES which limit the number of guests in all rentals. We may only exceed 16 guests for children 2 years or younger. Guests risk a fine for violating Codes.

(Please note: there is a separate 1 BR Suite NOT available for rental that will be locked off and empty for your stay, and is Not part if the 6BR/ 4.75BA .)

( *We also have a small oceanfront condo that sleeps up to 5 - 2/3 of a mile up the beach for small groups or additional guests. See - 'All My Rental Listings' below for links. We have a large 2BR townhouse 1 mile from Sullivan's Island beach and 6 miles to downtown for fabulous rates, as well as a 1BR (king bed)/1BA next door to that which sleeps up to 4. Please ask about the great rates and availability.

Private chef services are available. Ask for more info.

Please note: We provide a lmited amount of start-up paper goods, soaps, etc.

We provide 16 bath towels, 16 washcloths, 10 hand towels, 5 bath mats, 2-3 kitchen towels, and will always have some linens that get suntan oil/accelorator/ shaving nick stained after 1st/2nd use, but buy 4+ new sets a year, and cannot do new ones every stay. Some guests prefer to bring their own for maximum comfort. Extras are also avaiable for rent from our cleaning service, or several independant ones in the area.

The underneath is cleaned regularly, but not in between every weekly Summer use and wil likely have sand and dirt, etc, like a yard outdoor area. Also grills may have some gas, but it is possible you will need to get a refill, plus your own charcoal, as we do not regularly supply those items.

The full deposit will be returned if a CANCELLATION is made 90 days prior to the reservation. 50% will be refunded for a cancellation 45-90 days prior. 100% minus $100 handling fee will be refunded in any case, if the spot can be filled after cancellation. A serious threat of hurricane (actual hurricane warnings for the Charleston area in the next 48 hours) would constitute a 100% refund.

It is standard practice to have guests empty trash, as they may have stinky stuff (diapers, seafood, shells...) which permeates the place when not cleaned for hours, or occasionally the next day.

About Susan Player Verbsky

My name is Susan Player Verbsky; a wife and mother by God's Grace, a Psychotherapist by training, with a small practice here for 20+ years, and a Real Estate investment and management specialist by design for the same time period. I enjoy the great intangible rewards of Therapy, and, equally, the tangible rewards of developing a property and working with people planning vacation time.

Susan Player Verbsky purchased this House in 1993

Why Susan Player Verbsky chose Isle of Palms

Our family built this house after many years of family trips renting homes up and down the Carolina Coast. We choose this spot on IOP for its exceptionally beautiful and safe beach, proximity to ocean, and as well to all that Charleston has to offer. We then endeavored to incorporate all of the do's and dont's we learned in the many beachfront homes we had rented. ** Smaller groups and families may want to look at our small beachfront condo 2/3 mile up the beach, our 1BR (king bed)/1BA 1 mile from the beach and 6 miles to Historic Downtown, our large townhouse next door to it. Look at "All my listings" next to owner info, or ask, and I will send the site numbers : )

What makes this House unique

As mentioned before, this home is designed for a large gathering of family and/or friends to enjoy each other, enjoy privacy when desired, enjoy amazing views from almost every room, enjoy the best beach, and enjoy Charleston when you can tear yourself away. I am from this area, and live less than 5 miles away, so I am able to be hands-on. We are in a residential area, so if you're looking for a total party house, please continue : )

Guests a We buy 4+ new sets a year of 100% cotton, and rotate those to have fresh on hand for cleanings, but cannot do new ones every stay and be reasonably priced. Some guests prefer to bring their own for maximum comfort. When guests used the outside linen service in the past, they got 50/50 poly/cotton very cheap sheets/towels, and were unhappy. Our linens are carefully, fully laundered. We also provide a limited amount of start-up paper goods, soaps, etc. It is a storage space issue, not $

The house is just steps away from the beach, and the giant sandbox entertained the young ones and provided get-away walks for the adults. It is also convenient to downtown Charleston and Fort Moultrie. In all communications with the owner or house manager we received quick and helpful responses. Highly recommend.

Being right on the ocean was wonderful since the smaller children and parents needed to go back and forth. The view from inside, on the porch and decks was beautiful. The family room, which is directly across from the kitchen and dining area,was our favorite with 5 super comfortable couches. And the openness of this floor plan ensured that we could enjoy everyones company in either of the 3 areas. The home is very clean and the bath towels they provided were luxurious. It's a perfect home for an Isle of Palms vacation.

Family came from all over and converged on Susan's wonderful house. The house was everything we wanted (roomy, clean, well-equipped and cared for), right on the beach. Elevator and handicap accessibility was perfect for mom. Susan is an attentive and friendly host. We'll be back!
