You can hear the ocean from this excellent island location! Just three houses from the beach, this unique one bedroom flat with queen bed, comfy couch, kitchen, walk-in cedar closet, bathroom with shower is a great place to relax, surf or just enjoy a walk collecting shells. The apartment is located on the ground floor of the 3.5 story house.** Also, just a short walk down the beach is Wild Dunes Resort, where you can grab lunch and drinks poolside, or enjoy world-class golf. And not too far away is the Isle of Palms Marina, restaurants, and Harris Teeter grocery is a couple miles away. You literally won’t have to leave the island for anything!
**PLEASE NOTE: If you’re looking for a place to stay with all the bells and whistles of a newly renovated hotel or beach house with all the latest appliances and perks, and airy light-filled rooms, please look elsewhere, you’re not going to be happy. This apartment is a quintessential beach apartment located in an older house that’s been there since the 1970s. It’s a place where sandy feet and wet dogs are welcome. It has older working appliances (ie. stove, refrigerator), it is not decked out with all the latest gadgets. It’s very simplistic in nature. What it does have is a great ‘beachy’ vibe and a prime location – beach 250ft. down the street! The lot the house is on is very shady with lots of trees and vegetation; therefore, the apartment doesn’t get a whole lot of natural light. But especially during the summer months, it is the perfect oasis to escape the sun and heat after a long hot day on the beach.
***We do accept friendly, housebroke dogs only – Limit Two (2) dogs – preferably pups 40 pounds or under. Larger dogs will definitely be considered, feel free to inquire.
***PET FEE: $20 PER PET. This is not included in your reservation. The pet fee will be due upon check in and payable in cash please. *NO cats please!
Please feel free contact us with any questions you may have.

Unique little hideaway
Close proximity to the beach was amazing!! It has its unique little quirks. Loved the fact there wasn't a TV, internet was spotty but not awful. Would recommend this unique space to anyone wanting something different.
Charming Rental, Great Beach Access!
This rental was perfect for our quick get away. It is cute, quirky, and quaint- exactly the type of place we love. The description is very accurate; it’s comfortable and cozy. There are unfinished touches, but nothing is misrepresented here. We love a place with character, and this home has so many funky cool design features, very cool aesthetics, and was a cozy retreat. The beach access was fantastic. It’s a peaceful stretch of beach, not too busy, and very close and convenient. The owner has made every effort to make the accommodations comfortable, and while we did not need anything beyond what was provided, I am confident if anything was lacking all we would have had to do was ask. We would highly recommend, and in fact have already shared the listing with several friends!
Wedding night stay!
This apartment was definitely unique. It was perfect for my now husband and I! We loved that it was so close to the marina. Would absolutely opt to stay here in the future over anywhere else. Perfect!
Thanks Stephanie! We would love to have you and your husband back again.
Very interesting apartment but was very dark inside and had a musty odor. Bed was comfortable and apartment provided everything we needed for our short stay.
Thanks for pointing out the musty odor. I was in there earlier that day and didn't notice it. However, since the apartment is located on ground level – and we have had a very cold and wet winter here in Charleston – we haven't had the opportunity to open up the windows and doors to air it out for a prolonged period. We would rather the apartment be warm and comfy for you in February instead of opening up all the doors and windows during cold months. There are two air purifiers going in there 24/7, so you're the first to mention a musty smell. As for it being dark, the photos pretty much show how it looks inside. It's on the ground floor and located on a very shady lot that has many mature oaks trees and shrubs. Only the south side of the house receives light during the day. It is, however, a serene oasis of shade and coolness after a long, hot day on the beach.
Peaceful and clean!!
Thanks so much Chris. Would love to have you back again.
