About The Owner

We are Dan and Barb Brown. We own and manage 3 vacation properties on Isle of Palms. We live in Evanston IL and enjoy our visits to the Charleston area, especially with grandkids. We pride ourselves on providing comfortable accommodations with an emphasis on service including expedited check-in. IOP offers a great beach and family-oriented community close to downtown and the airport. Lots of nearby attractions (plantations, restaurants, aquarium, historical sites, etc.) and the golf is great. We hope you enjoy the Low Country as much as we do!

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose Isle of Palms

IOP has a 6 mile beach that's clean and uncrowded. 20 minutes to downtown Charleston and the airport. Great Low Country cuisine, golf and other sports, plus lots of historical attractions make this the ideal family destination.

What makes this house unique

Easy access (about 100 yards) to the beach and a short walk or golf cart ride to the Front Beach area with shops and restaurants. Private pool to enjoy when not at the beach.

Friends and family fall getaway. The house is beautiful and had everything we needed. The weather was perfect. We were able to sit by the pool and grilled outside.

Thank you so much Dan. We had a wonderful long weekend.

Girls Trip

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I just returned from a long weekend there, and it was great. There was plenty of room in the house and the pool was perfect with lots of chairs. The house was equipped with everything we needed and more. I would recommend this house for a large group of friends or family.

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

This house worked well for our large family. We had a total of 10 people (7 adults, 3 kids) staying at the house, everyone had their own place to sleep. The pictures do not do this house justice, the rooms are bigger than they appear in the pictures. There was plenty of room for everyone to relax, the side wrap-around porch is perfect! The swimming pool was clean, well-kept (pool service guy came twice during our visit), and was definitely enjoyed by all! A short 2 block walk to the beach. Close proximity to all attactions in and around Charleston. The owners were very nice and polite, and were very helpful with suggestions and any questions we asked. I would definitely recommend this house to others. However, as with most beach houses, there are multiple stairs both inside the residence and mindful of that when booking if traveling with disabled persons. However, with that being said, we were very pleased with the house and would definitely stay again should the opportunity arise. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home! We had a wonderful vacation!

June Beach Trip

  • 5 of 5

My family had the pleasure of staying at Crows Nest this summer. We are a large family with relatives in Chas but 12 of us stayed in the house, ages ranged from 20 mo to 70 yrs. Several nights we had 21 people for dinner and never felt crowded. The kitchen was well equipped and the second refrigerator was a lifesaver. The house had many surprises as toys, baby gates, and a wonderful push car that our baby loved. He must have ridden many miles in that toy. The sleeping arrangements were fine and accommodated our single young adults well. The pool was terrific and enjoyed by all as it was clean and well maintained. We were also impressed with all the seating around the pool and on the deck. The common area was comfortable and enjoyed by all. The only challenge was the bathroom lay out which was difficult at times. I would highly recommend this house for all regardless of age. The walk to the beach was easy. Mainly dealing with the owner was a pleasure. We felt welcomed from the moment we arrived. He made the financial transactions a pleasure and the house was even better than we imagined. The pictures do not do it justice. We plan on returning next summer.

Just another day in Paradise! Beach living at its best!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 10 guys that stayed at this house for a weekend getaway. The house was the perfect fit for our group as every person was able to have their own place to sleep.The pictures do not do the house justice as the house is much bigger than shown in the photos. The pool was very clean and heated upon our arrival which was great for late night or early morning swims. The house was clean and linens were fresh.There is a beautiful spiral staircase that connects all floors of the house .There is a game room downstairs with a ping pong table which was a nightly gathering spot for some fierce ping pong battles. The house location is just a short distance about 20 mins to downtown Charleston and just steps to the beach on IOP. We did not experince any problems with the house during our stay which is what every traveler wants in the end. I would highly recommend this house if your looking for a true beach house experience and total relaxation during your stay.
