About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)








Enjoy the sights and sounds of the Low Country on the Isle of Palms, South Carolina! A five minute walk from our cottage will have your toes in the sand of the seven miles of beaches listening to the call of the seagull while you stroll the windswept dunes searching for shells and watch for pelicans fly in perfect formation; or spend the day sunning, swimming, surfing and building the greatest sand castle!

Just a short walk up and across the street is our deepwater dock on Hamilin Creek minutes from the Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal Waterway, Wild Dunes Marina (for gassing up and fine dining at the Morgan Creek Grill), and small islands and creeks for exploring, crabbing, shrimping, fishing, and fun! Wild Dunes is a world class resort located at the northern tip of our island (approx 5-10 minutes from beach house) with two top golf courses! Relax on the back deck while watching the kids frolic and play in the private, 18' round/4' deep above ground deck pool! Pool is open May 1-Sept 19, and is not heated. Yard is fenced if bringing pets. Wifi is available for those that can't leave their computers at home.

Or take the day to explore this historic area from Civil War Fort Moultrie on neighbor Sullivans Island. Or to the USS Yorktown on the Harbor; or Charles Pinckney Home; or Boone Hall, former plantation and site of films North and South, The Notebook and Queen in neighboring Mount Pleasant. Or cross our beautiful Cooper River bridge to historic Charleston and take a carriage ride to see the historic homes and gardens, shop at the open air market, antique shops, national and local boutiques, and end the day with a wonderful meal from numerous fine dining choices.

We invite you to unwind and relax in our charming classic cottage with glorious sunset views over Hamlin Creek. Up the stairs you will find a sunroom with comfy wicker and rattan sets to enjoy the creek viewing, living room has queen sleeper sofa and occasional chairs with a 60' Toshiba TV with cable and DVD player, dining room with seating for 10, fully-equipped tiled kitchen with small table and two chairs, main bedroom with queen bed & tv, and second cozy bedroom with two twin beds, one full bath with tub and shower with beach mural on walls.

Upstairs has warm pine floors throughout most living areas, linoleum in kitchen, bath and sunroom, plaster walls, beadboard ceilings in bedrooms and living room. The back deck holds the gas grill with furniture for watching burgers cook, and down a few steps to swimming pool deck with 18' round,/4' deep above ground private pool. Please note pool is open May 1-Sept 19.

Through door and few steps through carpeted beach toy area w/foosball table is large fourth bedroom with queen bed.

Our deepwater dock with access to Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean is just two houses up and across the street, with approx 400 ft walkway to pierhead and floating dock over marsh, with gorgeous expansive views of Hamlin Creek and little Goat Island directly across which separates us from the Intracoastal Waterway. You will see peeks of large ships going up the Waterway.

Sunset Palms

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful vacation at this beach cottage! The location is perfect- in a beautiful area, short walk to the beach, the dock just across the street, a beautiful view from the front porch. A short drive into Charleston. The cottage was clean, beautifully decorated, well-stocked with towels and all kitchen needs, a large washer and dryer, a grill on the back porch. The pool was very clean with a nice deck and chairs. Mary Ann was extremely nice and had the booking process very easy to follow.

I would highly recommend this cottage.

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 8 plus 3 dogs thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at 614 Palm Blvd. The location is fantastic. We had a ball crabbing and fishing off the pier. The pool is very refreshing after walking from the beach. The kitchen has everything you need to cook! Thanks for a great vacation!

Loved the house

  • 5 of 5

This house was so cute. The only thing we didn't love was you couldn't get downstairs without walking outside. But other than that is was a very beautiful home.

Isle of Palms Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Had a fabulous time staying in this home. A well maintained and clean property. Traveled with 8 friends for a winter get-away half marathon and marathon in Charleston. Seven of us stayed at this property. It made for a great base of operations for the four days and three nights in the region. Not only were we able to easily drive to the race and related activities, but enjoyed the historic sites and restaurants in Charleston. Some of us took some runs in the neighborhood, including a gorgeous sunrise run along the Atlantic Ocean beach (two blocks away) one morning. Plenty of sleeping and relaxing room for all of us. One of our number was injured and not able to run. Instead she was able to meet with local bird watching groups on three days to see a plethora of coastal birds. Most of us came from Minnesota which has slightly less hospitable January weather. We had breakfast every day in the home and cooked our race-eve pasta dinner in the kitchen. I hope to return in the future.
