Overview

About the property

Ground Floor Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4), Large Screened Porches

Welcome to 'Seaglass Serenity'... Incredible location.... Beachfront at the mouth of Charleston Harbor, this charming ground floor condominium has views of both the Atlantic Ocean and Charleston Harbor.

The wide sandy beach is ideal for sunbathing, swimming, fishing, or launching small sailboats. The National Park Service and the Town of Sullivan's Island maintain over a mile of undeveloped, protected beach and maritime forest adjacent to the property where you can have undisturbed strolls on the beach. The condo is immediately next door to Fort Moultrie, a National Historic Site with museum and tours, that played significant roles in both the Revolutionary War and Civil War. Fort Sumter, site of the first conflict of the Civil War, can be seen across the harbor. The main channel into Charleston lies nearby, allowing clear views of every ship passing into or out of the harbor. Dolphins play just off shore.

This condo is one of four individually owned units that were originally built as Army Nurse's quarters circa 1910, and are the only vacation rental beachfront condominiums on Sullivan's Island. This unique historic property preserves the charm of the hundred year old structure, but this unit has been renovated and professionally decorated to appeal to today's traveler. The condominium features large front and back screened porches with ceiling fans, rocking chairs, swing, and dining area. The remodeled back porch features a Charleston Bed Swing. Inside, the original hardwood floors give the condominium the feel of an old Southern beach cottage, while providing all modern amenities including flat panel HDTVs (2), stereo with iPod dock, and Wi-Fi. The ground floor location allows easy access with parking only a few steps away. The condo has two bedrooms with the beach-side bedroom having a queen bed, while the rear bedroom has two singles.

Sullivan's Island provides a location that is quiet, uncrowded, with a very relaxed lifestyle. There is not a single traffic light on the island. The island is primarily residential; yet it has several excellent restaurants, post office, library, art gallery, and small grocery store within a mile of the condo. The three mile long island is perfect for exploring by bicycle or golf cart. Public tennis courts and playground are just down the street. One of the beauties of this quiet oceanfront paradise is that it is only a 15 minute drive from historic downtown Charleston and even closer to the shopping and dining areas of Mount Pleasant.

*This is a Saturday-Saturday, weekly only, rental from 5/16/15 to 8/29/15; 3 night minimum in off season. *

About Laura Wall

We are a family of four from Atlanta who have been vacationing in the Charleston area and South Carolina Low Country for many years. We have come to enjoy the Charleston area best of all. We find the combination of Southern Charm, history, shopping, and excellent food compelling. Now that we have an anchor at Sullivan's Island, we are happy to share the beautiful, quiet beach; access to wonderful local restaurants -- especially seafood; friendly locals; historic Ft. Moultrie, Ft. Sumter (viewed from our condo), the beautiful ships coming into Charleston Harbor; and historic, authentic, Charleston!

Laura Wall purchased this condo in 2008

Why Laura Wall chose Sullivan's Island

We wanted a beachfront location that was free of crowds, quiet and relaxing, yet close to excellent dining and entertainment. We enjoy the history of Charleston from the old rice plantations to the fine pre-revolutionary city homes. Charleston has a grace and charm that few American cities possess. From the performances of the Spoleto Festival, the excellent antique shopping, the tours of historic sites, to the Shrimp boats and fishing charters on Shem Creek, Charleston captivates. Sullivan's Island provides easy access to all this, but seems a world away from the bustle.

What makes this condo unique

This is an extremely relaxing location, beachfront at the Charleston harbor entrance where dolphins play, and you get close up views of all the ships entering the harbor. The island is perfect for bicycle riding, has several excellent restaurants within a mile, and is loaded with history. Outdoor activities abound, from deep sea fishing, to wildlife tours of the salt march, to excellent golf on nearby Isle of Palms.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is our first time in the quaint Sullivan's Island. Your cottage fits in perfectly.

It takes us back in time, growing up, going to the coast of North Carolina. Being here - watching the cargo, cruise, and fishing boats - dolphins, seagulls - makes us long for that time again.

You have truly created such an inviting and well cared for place. The porch swings are such a bonus - the new sheets and comforter - the very adequate kitchen - made us want for nothing.

We wondered as we sat on the swings what so many topics have been discussed over the last 100 years here.

We want to come back when you are available and bring our 92 year old father - this would be perfect.

favorite get-away

As Massachusetts residents, we have thoroughly enjoyed this get-away oasis for nine years. The home and water views are beautiful, the year round residents are extremely gracious, and the owners are committed to ensuring a "hassle-free" vacation.

Wonderful view and cute cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The place was great with a lovely screened porch and a fabulous ocean view! We had a nice time in this place and it was the perfect size for our fam of two adults and a child. Definitely would rent again. Particularly appreciated the very nice heavy bath towels and comfortable bedding that you often don't get in rentals.

Second Time in this Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here June 25-July 1 and loved every minute! I especially love watching the ships go by and the pelicans gently gliding over our heads and divebombing for their supper. The sunsets are beyond gorgeous! Thank you Bill and Laura for making your wonderful retreat available!

Wonderful as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a lovely time at Seaglass Serenity. The kitchen had all of the stuff you would need. There were extra things for beach activities and for comfort. The separate single beds were great for the boys. The screened porch was a great place to hang out.

You are very close to the beach which is about 3 miles of nice flat hard packed beach. There is a public access next to the condo, but that was only occasionally annoying. Sharing the "Jack and Jill" bathroom between the four of us was a bit time consuming, but hey relax we're at the beach. The hosts were very helpful and so accommodating with all of the stuff available in this place. We very much enjoyed our stay. A great location.
