Property description

Our Slice of HEAVEN! Come have a fun and relaxing vacation at our beachfront little get-away on the Isle of Palms, Charleston, SC. Wake up in an oceanfront condominium on one of South Carolina's most beautiful beaches. Beautiful sunrise and an awesome sunset, dolphins out front in the surf. You can view all of this while keeping an eye on older kids in the pool, all from the comfort of your living room, kitchen, or balcony.
Located in the heart of Isle of Palms, this cozy condo is perfectly positioned. You are just steps from the beach and in walking distance to the island’s best restaurants, shops, and park. This condominium complex claims the only pier on the Front Beach strand, private for your fishing or relaxation enjoyment. Having grown up here, and visiting many of these Sea Cabins over time, we chose this unit specifically because the 2nd floor has the great view without the 3rd story climb (no elevator) every time we needed to grab one more thing, no roof leaks or HVAC noise, and because our end unit shares no BR wall, has open ended balcony, and no unit underneath us (just the conference room used a few times a year.) End unit also has a small Ocean Blvd side balcony area with great sunsets.

IOP is a barrier island suburb of Charleston.You are only ten miles from the Historic District of Downtown Charleston, where you can shop at the Old Market. Take in the charm of this beautiful and historic town 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 and shopping, live theater, live music, museums, and more.
*All condominiums and sea cabins are not in the same condition! Some of the condominiums and sea cabins have not been updated in many years and are not as nice and allergy-free as this unit. Ceiling and walls have all been replaced with smooth, mold-free sheetrock, new flooring and cabinets. This attractive condo, decorated in a tropical motif, is situated on the second floor of the center 'B' building. The balcony affords unobstructed panoramic ocean views of the ocean, as we are in the middle bldg facing straight out (the 2 others angle in). This view is also shared from LR and kitchen. The sunset is very nice over the entrance/ back porch area. Being an end unit gives us a small space as back porch which the others don't have.
PRIVACY! This condo also offers individual privacy. The hall with built-in bunk beds closes off to be its own private room for smaller guests with a nightlight and air/white noise machine available. top bunk is top secret hide out for kids (must replace quick-release cabinet doors if removed) The adults can then go back and forth from balcony/LR/kitchen to BR thru the seperate batroom door without waking the kids. We are well suited for 2-4 adults 25 and over, and 5 people if some are children. Top pf the line queen denim sleeper sofa adds extra sleeping. BR has upgraded new, medium firmness matresses. Bed linens and bath towels are provided.
Beginning June 1, 2015 we are going to all cotton, 300 count linens, and 100% cotton cover, top-line hypoallergenic pillows in bedroom; all cotton linens and allerest cotton pillows in bunks. 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 certainly bring and/or rent linens from services here if preferred.

FREE WIFI and Comcast basic cable.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Isle of Palms, SC, USA:
After many years managing my parent's large wonderful beachfront home that rents for $8500 a week, we invested in a Old Village rental that would be easily accessible to the beach and historic downtown, and a more affordable vacation here for smaller families/groups. Positive experiences with that rental as well motivated us to invest in a Sea Cabin. I am from this area, we live close by, and just love this location. We had stayed and loved these condos for years as a perfect one family beach/Charleston get-a-way.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
2nd floor Views are as great as 3rd floor w/out the climb. Better rates and 2 1/2 x the size of the beachfront hotels, and much bigger balcony. Renovated kitchen and bath w/ fully replaced sheetrock walls and ceilings throughout for best allergy relief. End unit shares no BR wall with neighbor, has more open panoramic balcony, plus ours has the conference room below- empty at night and 75% of daytime. ** Smaller groups and families may want to look at our 1BR (king bed)/1BA next door 1 mile from the beach and 6 miles to Historic Downtown, our large townhouse next door to it, and larger family gatherings our family 6BR beachhouse. Look at "All my listings" next to owner info : )
