About Julie Byrne

Sharing paradise just around the corner--If anything is needed assistance isn't far away.

Why Julie Byrne chose Isle of Palms

We fell in love.....The sanctuary feel is compared to none and the views are incredible. Paradise is indeed found here. We look forward to having you visit.

What makes this cottage unique

So close to the beach/and action of the Village or Boardwalk if you desire--yet feels so private with water views and nature playing out all day long.

Located in the heart of fun and good times. Gator Cottage is a 6 minute walk just 2 blocks from the beach. There are bike/walk paths to explore around the resort. There are restaurants and shops in the area along with sports teams seasonally to enjoy. The River Dogs baseball; the Charleston Battery soccer; the Stingrays hockey teams as well as the local college teams. Downtown historic Charleston is a great day trip, you can drive to Patriots Point and even take a water taxi across the harbor for added interest.

Gator Cottage is nestled at the top of a quiet cul-de -sac with the backyard views rivaling National Geographic at times. An open concept home with 180* beautiful views morning afternoon and sunset.

Fantastic home and even better hostess! We loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Gator Cottage for our beach wedding. Julie was an incredible hostess. She was responsive to every email and text. She went out of her way to make our stay enjoyable. Gator Cottage was perfect! We loved the layout of the house, spacious bedrooms and the great outdoor space. We couldn't have asked for a better home or hostess to be apart of our special day. Julie really added to our memories, I can't say enough good things about our stay and interaction with her. We can't wait to come back! We HIGHLY recommend Gator Cottage.

Beautiful! Stay in this wonder cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5

A family of 5 fit perfect in this home. The short walk to the beach was quick and easy. This home was super clean and well appointed. We were there for The Citadel's parents' weekend and it was only a 20 minute drive to campus. We would choose this over a hotel anytime. Thank you Julie!

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second summer staying at Gator Cottage. It is the perfect house for our family of four and allows each of our teen boys to invite a friend. We are very particular about cleanliness and decor, and this house is well appointed and always spotless! It is close to the beach and activities at the Pavilion. The provided beach towels are a wonderful treat...so nice not to have to pack those! Our teen boys and friends enjoy feeding the turtles and watching golfers from the back porch. This year, a REAL gator came for a visit! Julie is always accommodating and quick to help if anything is needed at all! We can't wait to return next year!

Wonderful week in Isle of Palms

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 enjoyed our week in this beautiful, spacious home located in Wild Dunes. Loved our quiet mornings on the deck overlooking the lagoon and golf course. Property is a few minutes walk to the beach and pools. Short driving distance to Sullivan's Island for great food and entertainment' and less than 30 minutes to Charleston, which we visited multiple times. Julie was wonderful and accommodating! She went above and beyond to ensure we had EVERYTHING we needed and more! Looking forward to staying here again.
