June 29-July 1 OPEN & DISCOUNTED!


Our little 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. 500 sq.ft. total means the queen BR is small, but the condo 2x the size of hotel room.

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 ONLY if some are children. 5 adilts would Not be comfortable. Top of the line queen denim sleeper sofa adds extra sleeping. BR has upgraded new, medium firmness matresses. Bed linens and bath towels are provided. (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.

( *We also have a 1BR (king bed)/1BA condo with lower rates,as well as a 1500 sq ft 2BR/2BA townhouse, each -1 mile from the beach and 6 miles from downtown Historic District. Both offer a King size beds, and spacious proximity to all things Charleston. Please ask about the great rates and availability. We have other VRBO sites as well : )


We keep a few beach chairs & mats, a small/med cooler, and a some beach toys for guests to use. I also have info for a service that will set you up with wood and canvas loungers and umbrellas each morn.

You are within 2 blocks from the Banana Cabana, Ben & Jerrys, Long Island Cafe, Acme Lowcountry Kitchen, The Sea Biscuit, Coconut Joe's, The world famous Windjammer beach bar offering up nightly entertainment, and more great restaurants/ pubs/shops, all in a plentiful but quaint beachtown commercial area of approx 3 square blocks. Historical, Boone Hall Plantation established in 1681, is only 5 miles away.

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. Whether you want to get a little tune-up to your swing or you are just starting to play, there is a PGA Professional available to you during your stay. Improve your game and/or just play a great course at a reduced rate. Mark Kennon, LMT of Tailored Massage offers massage at the beachhouse as well as offices nearby. Do schedule in advance. No kickbacks here, just happy guests.

1 mile away, Mount Pleasant Towne Centre is 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, Longhorn Steakhouse, 5 Guys Burgers, TGI Friday's, Atlanta Bread Company, & more - 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. Shem Creek’s famous shrimp boats and restaurants are 10 minutes away, and the Yorktown WWII destroyer and several historical plantations are all within easy driving distance.

There are security personnel on site to ensure safety, as well as parking, beach, pool, and pier access privleges. Bikes, chairs, and beach umbrella rentals are available nearby. Shopping, dining, nightly entertainment and post office are a very short walk.

Activities (on site or nearby): Pier and pool on site, hiking, biking, golf, tennis, fishing pier, shopping, restaurants, live theater, cinemas, museums, plantations ,sightseeing, swimming, snorkeling/diving, boating, sailing, surfing, windsurfing, jet skiing, shelling.

(We provide a lmited amount of start-up paper goods, soaps, etc. We will always have some linens that get suntan oil/accelorator/ shaving nick stained after 1st/2nd use, but buy 4+ new sets per bed a year, and cannot do new ones every stay. Some guests prefer to bring their own for maximum comfort. We have upgraded medium firmness BR mattress after some guests found the other too soft. Previous full firm one brought other complaints, so we hope it will now please all.)

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.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

Why The Owner chose Charleston Area

After many years managing my parent's large wonderful beachfront home that rents for $8800 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.

What makes this condo unique

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 : )

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Susan,

Our week's vacation at your villa was sheer heaven. We had everything we needed right there, and could walk easily to beach, pool, restaurants, etc. This is a perfect place for honeymooners, couples, or small families. We've seen quite a few of these units over the years and this was by far the nicest. I would recomend it and will be back.

Awesome stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for the first time in May and we will definitely be back. This is a great location and the condo was very nice. It is close to really good restaurants and the people are very friendly. The fact that you get a pool, fishing pier and the ocean is awesome.

Cute Condo

  • 4 of 5

Clean and nicely decorated with everything we needed. Good view. Weather did not cooperate-windy and rain. Palm tree scrubbed against bedroom wall first night and kept us awake. Took 30 minutes waiting to get pass code box to open door when we got there. We felt safe in the complex.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the cute condo response. I am again sorry that you were unable to open the keybox. We have never had that happen at any of our places in 10+ years that the keybox was too difficult. And, it was unusually windy and rainy indeed those days, always an understandable disappointment.

First visit to Isle of Palms

  • 4 of 5

Nice comfortable unit with ocean view. Conveniently located within walking distance to shops and restaurants. Due to unusually cold weather we really couldn't hang out on the beautiful beach but we're able to find many things to do in Isle of Palms and surrounding area.

Owner's Response: I am glad you had a good stay : ) Beachfront sliders are always sticking from the salt. I need to make a note for guests that we keep WD-40 right in the hall closet.
