Classic Beach House with new deck

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 180 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 13-14)

This is a classic, 100 year-old beach house, with original heart-pine 'bead-board' interior, which was built by the family of the current owners. (The firemen who inspect it annually have told us it is their favorite house on Sullivans Island!) We have just added a brand new front deck with plenty of seating, space for outdoor grilling, and a porch swing underneath. The kitchen is newly renovated with modern appliances. (cooking & eating utensils provided.) Living room, dining room, 4 bedrooms, 2 newly-renovated bathrooms (shower in each). There are 2 bedrooms downstairs (each with a queen bed). Upstairs is one large room with two queen beds, and another large room with two queens and a single bed. Central AC & heat, plus cast iron wood stove (firewood provided). Two large covered & screened porches, with ping pong table, new outdoor patio furniture, rocking chairs & other wicker furniture, plus a small roof-top deck, great for evening viewing of stars and a small glimpse of ocean (see photo)!

The house sits on a grassy, 1/2 acre lot, with lots of play-space for kids. Sandy area under the house is great for playing & digging. For extra fun for the children, there is a Charleston joggling board and plenty of beach toys. Our home is on a beach access station and the child-friendly beach is an easy hundred yards away.

Classic Beach House with new deck
average rating of 5.0 based on 7 reviews

Great authentic place with a very good atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

We spend two weeks in this house in April and had a great vacation. The house is spacious with two bedrooms downstairs and two upstairs.

The furniture and equipment is in good working order and regularly maintained. There are enough and good quality sheets, towels and beach towels available.

Because of the large open lot it feels nice and bright, especially in the master bedroom.

Beside from that we were also very lucky with the weather and the beach at Sullivan's is just wonderful.

Wonderful House for a Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for a week with my family (two young kids) and a few family friends. The house was absolutely perfect--nice enough to have all the amenities we need, but "beachy" enough to feel comfortable. So many options for outdoor lounging, from the large screened-in porch (many ping pong games happened there!) to the outdoor deck for grilling, to the almost secretive "widow's peak" porch upstairs. It's only a block from the beach, so it's an easy walk for the kids, and the large lot allowed us some privacy and space for a few impromptu football games. If you're looking for a house full of Southern charm, modern amenities, and an easy vibe, this is the house for you. We'll definitely be back next year!

Perfect Beach House for a girl's trip

  • 5 of 5

What a great house at the best beach in the South. The house was full of charm and was a wonderful place to stay for our group of 10. The house was fully stocked with all the supplies needed for our stay. The owners were very nice and reached out to us during our stay to make sure everything was perfect. They were very easy to work with and very accessible. We enjoyed the porch and swings! The location is perfect. Thank you so much for sharing your treasure with our group.

Wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming cottage that has the feel of historic Sullivan's Island but sacrifices nothing in the way of modern amenities. It's homey and comfortable. It has many choices for outdoor lounging. The location is great as it is a block from the beach.

Owners are hospitable and eager to make your stay enjoyable.

Outstanding Vacation Rental - Felt Like Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first try at renting a home. We usually use our timeshare, but it wasn't large enough. This place is EXACTLY like it is portrayed in the pictures, and MORE. We used all the space, with 13 of us staying here at one point during our week. The kitchen has all you need (many dish sets, serving bowls, made it fun), it was super clean too. It was stocked with paper towels, dish and dishwasher soap and garbage bags....even spices! Plus, what you ran out of could be could in one of the many storage rooms all over the house. This place had more towels than anyone could ever need, including some beach towels. The owners were exceptionally helpful with questions we emailed them ahead of time, and even while there. It was very hot and, being from Canada where we have NO ac, it kept us cool, even in the upstairs rooms. The walk to the beach was picturesque, close (about 2 blocks) and the beach definitely kid friendly with tidal pools just right for an 8 year old. Under the house was a goldmine of equipment, from propane and burner for boiling the crabs we caught outdoors instead of in the kitchen to beach chairs to water toys big enough for teens and adults, plus a wagon or a cart to tote it all to the beach. There was even a large beach umbrella that worked for shade! This place, called "The Island", I believe, in a book on Sullivan's Island found in the house (which has books and games tucked away for use) - is convenient to grocery stores in Mt Pleasant and an easy distance to Charleston and the other islands for restaurants (try Bowen's Island restaurant - fried food in a "shack-like" building - great "local feeling"). We won't stay anywhere else on return trips to the Charleston area. This place MADE our vacation better! We can't say enough good things about it! Thank you so much!

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at this vacation spot-house held all of us nicely. Had plenty of towels, etc

Nice roomy kitchen, dining room for all to cook and eat. Nice access to the beach and close to great restaurants. Grandkids loved the place. Hide and seek, ping pong were popular when not at the beach or being forced to take family pics. Loved the porch too-room for everyone to visit outside without bugs. I do have to say that Sullivan's Island has big mosquitos-rivals Louisiana. Great place. Would recommend highly-owners very helpful
