About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, With Dock On The Intercoastal Waterway

Sitting on the Intercoastal Waterway, just a brief 5-minute boat ride from the friendly Isle of Palms Marina, sits an island get-away that is secluded while touting a rustic freshness that can’t be matched. “Goat Tales” is the perfect home for those seeking a time to refresh and enjoy themselves amongst the history, beauty and lore of Charleston’s fabled Goat Island – a hidden island gem along the South Carolina coast.

You will enjoy the morning sun, a vivid sunset and bright stars and the ever-changing tides. Mesmerized by the Intracoastal Waterway, you’ll experience life on the water, the ever-changing salt marsh, fiddler crabs, sea birds, deer, and, two miniature prized goats, that truly make Goat Island’s name authentic.

Friends and family will enjoy a designer-styled home that has all the ultra modern amenities amidst 2,000 square feet of spacious and open living with views of the water and nature from all vantage points. Photos will be a must from your Adirondack chairs while burning the custom fire pit situated on a new seating deck. Or sit on the covered deck in plush sofas with a decorative ceiling fan humming and all the acquirements that make comfort King. Enjoy the postcard view...

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are life long South Carolina residents having spent the majority of our lives in the lowcountry of South Carolina. Our dream of having a place on Goat Island came true 5 years ago when we were able to be able to purchase our island getaway. We have been blessed with numerous glorious reviews of our guest's stays with us. We try to make each and every guest to Goat Tales feel welcome and comfortable - please join us.

Why the Owner Chose Isle of Palms, SC, USA:
The house has been remodeled and updated throughout. All the modern conveniences of the main land are included in the house. Did we mention, the reverse osmosis water purification system? Clean, pure and odorless water for you and your party. If you have ever been to Goat Island and visited a property without it, you know what I mean. Goat Island offers a peaceful serenity unlike any other coastal location in South Carolina.You will be amazed with the property and location while enjoying all the modern amenities of the mainland but with noise and hassle of traffic. The attention to detail is amazing and the property is always be cleaned and updated.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
ACCESSIBLE BY BOAT ONLY. Scoot over to the mainland and retread back to the island in just minutes. Water sports (jet skis,para-sailing and banana boat rides) are just across the Intercoastal Waterway. Dining is available with temporary boat parking available at Morgan Creek Grill less than a half mile away.
