Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed at this home 2 different years, and have enjoyed everything about it. We are on the beach every day and a huge perk to us is the outside shower and open space under the house. We prepare most all of our meals and the kitchen is stocked with everything you could possibly need. We just feel very much at home when we are there, already planning our next year! The location is perfect, for the beach access, downtown, great restaurants, little shops, Isle of palms, Mt pleasant and Charleston just a little drive. Enjoy! Thanks

Excellent Rental for Family Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This rental was perfect for our trip to Sullivan’s Island/Charleston. We were traveling with another family and our party consisted of 4 adults and 6 children between the ages of 2-10. The house was spacious and had plenty of room for all of us, including toys and puzzles for kids. The two best features are by far the screened in porch and the proximity to the beach. The entrance to the beach is across the street from the house and a short walk puts you right on the shore- no putting sandy, cranky kids in the car. This is a huge plus for any traveling family. The beach is beautiful- clean with soft sand. At low tide there is a sand bar that keeps the waves off the beach allowing nice calm waters for younger swimmers. The kitchen is large with some newer appliances that is perfect for cooking meals. If you want to go out, Sullivan’s Island has a cute downtown with restaurants and Mouth Pleasant is just over the bridge. It’s about 20 minutes to downtown Charleston by car. Owners were very responsive to requests and they were great about responding and fixing some minor issues during our stay. Overall we were very happy and would rent here again if we return to Sullivan’s Island.

Charming Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been more pleased with our accommodations. The owners made it their mission to make sure we had everything we needed, including toys on hand for our children to enjoy during our stay. They even quickly attended to an AC issue before we even knew about the problem. The house was well appointed and very comfortable. It felt like home away from home. The open format gave our family of 6 plenty of room and then some. We spent much of our evenings on the large screened in porch and porch swing. The house is an easy walk to the beach. We love Sullivans Island. When we return, we'll choose this house every time.

Perfect family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We have relatives in Charleston and often stay on Sullivan's Island when we visit. With all the city has to offer (restaurants, night life, historical sites, museums, shopping, baseball), outdoor recreation (water skiing, boating, fishing etc.), and a house on the beach, you can't beat Charleston and Sullivan's Island for a family vacation. Of all the houses we have rented over the years, this house is by far our favorite. The house is charming and comfortable, with an ocean view, and a short walk to the beach. It is perfect for large family dinners with the extended family, and there is even a room for the teenagers to go play video games and listen to music when they don't feel like watching the movies that their parents have chosen! We no longer have young children, but I wish we had found this house years ago, when we did! When the owners met us at check-in time, they went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. We love waking up and going to sleep to the sound of the ocean, and spent many hours lounging at the beach and playing in the surf. A great vacation. We hope to stay there again the next time we visit.

Car: recommended

Our home is "almost" a front-row home but not quite. You'll see when you get here. Its only steps away from a very nice wooden walkway down to the beach. We are less than a mile away from the commercial area with its restaurants, bars, a gas station, a small grocery store, etc.
