Lovely Cottage for a Relaxing Seaside Escape. Great for couples, friend groups, and families.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Out of Pocket! The hosts Chip and Bettylynn were so welcoming and accommodating. They were great resources for things to do in the area and were very responsive with any questions. Truly lovely people. The space itself is very charming. It accommodated our multi family group very comfortably. We cooked many meals in the kitchen, took tea/coffee and read on the screened in porch, and played games in the living room. The beach is a short walk away so we went there several times a day, in the morning to look for sea turtle tracks, in the afternoon to swim, and at night for ghost crab hunting (Thanks Chip for showing us how this is done!). They had chairs and boogie boards to bring to the beach and an outdoor shower area to rinse off the salt and sand before coming into the house. There is also a park with a playground about a block away. Other highlights of our trip: witnessing a sea turtle release, the Charleston Aquarium, a local farmers market, and boating on the intracoastal waterway. I am from Minnesota and this was a great first impression of South Carolina. We had a fabulous time and I hope to return for another rejuvenating stay at Out of Pocket.

Fun place for a beach weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! Host was very accommodating and cottage is in a great location.

The ground floor unit is a tiny bit musty (barely noticeable) and we could not find a can opener (that's and easy fix though and was probably just misplaced by a previous guest). Otherwise very comfortable and well appointed with enough towels and even beach chairs/umbrellas/etc. for us to use. Oh and the bathroom next to the kitchen the hot and cold direction is reversed in the shower - a little sign or something would help with figuring it out since we thought it just didn't have hot water for a while.
