About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Charming 3 bedroom house directly across from the Osprey Walk beach access path. This house has been updated by its new owners, a sheep farmer and his librarian wife. Good karma emulates from every nook and cranny.

On the first floor, you will find a king bedroom with its own full bathroom. Next door, there is a second bedroom with two twins and its own full bathroom; each with its own porch! Walk up the stairs to the kitchen and living room. The open floor plan is ideal for cooking, gathering, and entertaining. With great focus on green living, this home is environmentally friendly! Vaulted ceilings add to the sense of openness. Big windows showcase stately oaks in the maritime forest. A variety of screened and unscreened porches allow you to enjoy outdoor dining, games and sleeping. The walls, and floors are beautiful hand-harvested poplar and reclaimed heart pine, giving the house cozy intimacy with a natural flair.The third floor is the master suite with a king bed, large bathroom, and tub. The screened porch has a sleeper sofa for extra sleeping space. This floor is ideal for privacy and experiencing the cool evening breezes. Sleep in the comfy king bed or outside in the ocean breeze: either is a romantic option!

Cozy and a perfect secluded getaway, this home is built on pilings and is nestled in the trees. A great retreat, and a nature lover’s paradise.

Walk right out your driveway and onto Osprey Walk beach access path where you can experience all Dewees has to offer! Dewees Island is what vacations at Litchfield, Pawleys, IOP, and Kiawah were when your parents were growing up. Bike along shell paths, explore the forest, be alone on the beach.

About Emily

Dewees Rentals is proud to offer a commitment to excellence in property management to all of our guests. Renting on Dewees Island is a unique experience. We have a knowledge of Dewees Island like no other company out there. That is reflected through our education provided to each and every guest renting through us. We absolutely love what we do and we are grateful to work with each and every one of our guests. We hope to have you on the island!

Emily purchased this house in 1995

Why Emily chose South Carolina

Dewees Island offers incredible private beaches, great fishing, birding as well as kayaking, tennis, an inviting community pool. We love everything about Dewees. It's a great back to nature experience with all the comforts of a great house and community. It's within easy access of Charleston if we want to enjoy the dinning, history or cultural events.

What makes this house unique

We can walk barefoot from our house to the beach. The beach is very private. You might run into one or two people, instead of hundreds. We love using golf carts to get around the island. We like to crabbing and shrimping as well as fishing.

Perfect Location for Gatherings with friends and family

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at "Heaven's Door" last week. The weather was perfect - warm enough for swimming but cool breezes all the time. The kitchen is incredibly well equipped - we were surprised to find an espresso machine that we enjoyed every morning! The king bed in the master suite was super comfortable, and I enjoyed the sleeping porch as a place to relax and read in the afternoons. The living room accommodated the six of us comfortably, and overall we just had a wonderful time. I LOVE Dewees Island - we will be back, and would be happy to stay here again. Also, having the two golf carts was fantastic - but you could walk to the beach in just a few minutes too. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

great visit!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on Dewees, as always -- a unique and special place, so remote and beautiful, like something out of National Geographic. The house was clean, well appointed and very comfortable, perfect for our family, and the top floor bedroom is a dream!. Loved having the ocean access just across the road. We'll be back often!!

Wonderful home! Relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this house in June 2013. What a wonderful relaxing home! The home itself is beautifully decorated and welcoming. The house is divided into levels allowing for as much privacy as wanted/needed. The beds are super comfy and we were well rested during out stay. The kitchen is HUGE and beckons you to cook up some wonderful meals while on vacation! Multiple porches throughout the house invite you to pick out a great book from the owner's stash and curl up after a day at the beach. The location of the house is perfect because the beach access walk is right across the street. I can't imagine finding a better home on this island! This house was perfect in every way.

Dewees itself has so much to offer....relaxing, fishing, alligator watching, bird watching, or lounging on the beach. Everyone is so friendly and helpful and being there makes you feel like you are a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. We definitely hope to return to Dewees for another relaxing vacation!

Best Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Taking 4 young adults and a newlywed couple all on vacation with 50 ish parents can be quite challenging. Dewees Island met all of our expectations! Swimming, fishing, turtle walks (my son found a new nest site) and just driving golf carts around filled our days and nights. Judy was there for any question or advice. My husband was glad there was nowhere for me to spend money while I was on the island! The pictures do not reflect the home - it is much better in person. There were so many shells to be found that it was hard to choose which ones were the best to bring home. No time to be bored and we went to the pool only 1 time in the whole week!

Great relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Dewees over last fourth of July week. My parents, kids and I stayed in this house (55) and my brother, his wife, and their 6 kids stayed in another house. This was the best family vacation we have ever taken.

Both houses (managed by Judy) were excellent. Pictures are right on as far as beauty and cleanliness.

True beauty of this island is the connection to nature, the warm and embracing sense of community, and the simplicity of stepping back in time to no "hustle and bustle". Beach is so beautiful that pictures do not do it justice. It is not unusual to not see but one or two people while on the beach, you literally have it to yourself!

I gave my kids the choice of going back to any of our past vacations this year :Mexico, Jamaica, florida, myrtle beach...Dewees was chose unanimously by all!

Great family get away!
