About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Charming Sullivan's Island home located on a quiet street, directly across from the beach with primary path access. The 2nd story of the house, which is the 4 bedroom rental, has a very spacious screened in front porch ideal for quiet reading, or watching the world go by slowly. Ideal location for children, with an outdoor shower... perfect for washing off from your beach walk or activities.

Our family has owned this house for 35 years and hope you enjoy this respite from the busy world as much as we have. It is a perfect place to celebrate a special family occasion and spend time on the beach. The house is just a 3 minute walk from the beach to the refrigerator, for a sandwich, cold drink or to the restroom. The house is affectionately referred to as Blaine's house, in loving memory of Blaine and Gerry Miller. This house was built for family gatherings and vacations, take advantage of it!! We hope you'll spend your vacation with the Miller's at the house that was built on memories and still has room to grow with your own!

Please see the history of the house and our family below....

In the event of a hurricane, during your scheduled stay, we will gladly refund your deposit.

About The Owner

Our family has owned this house since 1977, the house was built in 1952 and like our neighbors the Rhapans on the left, and the Hickmans on our right, has survived even Hurricane Hugo. The other homes are simply new construction in a very special place, where the older island homes still stand.

Our house is a typical pre Hugo house, that exudes more comfort and love rather than big screen tv's or elevators. We have hosted family weddings, birthdays and graduations from this privileged perch..all because Blaine and Gerry Miller were married here in downtown Charleston during WWII and decided after chasing a corporate dream to make 2804 Marshall Blvd home. There are two other homes on the island that are the same style and type as this house. One of which is also down the street on Marshall Blvd beachside.

This is the spot where our kids have searched for sea treasure, made lemonade stands, learned to ride bicycles, count the pelicans named 'George and Myrtle' and greet people from their day at the beach. One thing to know if you are interested in renting our house..it is really the spot on Sullivan’s you are renting, not the brick and mortar. The house that sat across the street from ours hosted the great playwright Arthur Miller, and behind us in the little postage stamp cottage built in 1909..other writers have sought refuge. Sullivan’s is well known as the inspiration for the likes of Edgar Allen Poe, and Pat Conroy.

If you do not know these names then perhaps the Holiday Inn would be better suited for your express vacation...

The Owner purchased this house in 1977

Why The Owner chose Sullivan's Island

Sullivan's Island is indeed a special place. Almost every step you take while visiting on this quaint little respit has some historical significance..it truly is NOT myrtle Beach, nor Destin or South Miami Beach or Hilton Head. It is it's own unique piece of history covered with an ambient heir of Tranquility. It is a place where families can manufacture great memories that will test grandfather time..it is safe and serene..

What makes this house unique

Originally, Sullivan's Island was a waypoint for miscreants. It blossomed into a summer beach retreat for Charlestonians..and now is a place where several generations have called home....ours included.

Please be mindful in your visit of the precious Eco system that comprises our small barrier island, and the robust and burgeoning wildlife at waters edge. Sea Oats are scattered along the beach path as a hideaway for small rabbits, and serve as precious building blocks to prevent erosion. Sea turtles are also native and have visited the 28 station beach in front of our house many times over the years.

Last week I was at the house to put in new carpet, furniture and beds. Sitting quietly on the front porch about 1:30 a.m., I saw something I have never seen in the 35 years at our house..I watched with amazement, 2 small deer in the front yard grazing.

We sincerely hope you and your family enjoy this simple retreat as much as we have these three and half decades....sincerely and without reservation...Mark Miller

  • 3 of 5

we enjoyed our week long family stay. House was clean and good location. The outside was disappointing! property was overgrown and not well maintained. Not the best place for small kids.

Overall was good for adults wanting to be close to the beach

Great stay at the beach

  • 5 of 5

The house is close to the beach, the walkway is just across the street. The house is very well equipped with all cooking needs supplied. The screened-in porch is a delight. The home is older but well maintained and the bathrooms have been remodeled and were great. It is so well stocked for a beach house, all the staples are there, there were bottles of aloe left out, hand soap at every sink, salt and pepper, having the linens supplied saves much packing and there were even a couple of beach chairs left out. Will definitely rent again!

Quaint, Cozy, Convenient, Family Friendly

  • 5 of 5

My family loves 2804 Marshall! It's just what we need for a family friendly, low maintenance vacation to Sullivan's Island. It's perfect for just our family and big enough to bring friends along if we'd like. The beach access is very convenient and you can't beat the relaxation on the porch. The owners/managers are very friendly and easy to work with. This is the sort of place that will continue to draw you back year after year.
