About the property

3 Bedroom / 2.5 Bathroom Sleeps 6

Come enjoy a relaxing week at the beach while taking in all the exciting Charleston attractions. This renovated oceanfront home has a private boardwalk to the award winning IOP beach. You can't beat the LOCATION! The home is tucked away in a serene, quiet neighborhood away from the parking and beachgoers, yet within walking distance to the pier, restaurants and shops. Easy access to the island connector bridge allows you to bypass the heavy traffic on Palm Blvd and Wild Dunes.

The house sits on a professionally landscaped double lot which offers panoramic views of the ocean and features an open floor plan allowing for an abundance of natural sunlight. The master bedroom has a king bed and private bathroom. Both the master bedroom and living room open to a screen porch with spectacular ocean views. A second bedroom has a queen bed and the third bedroom has two double beds with an adjacent full bathroom. The large screen porch faces the ocean and is perfect for enjoying the sea breeze or for entertaining your guests. Numerous palm and oak trees surround the home for privacy from the adjacent neighbors.

There is a fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, luxury linens, bath and beach towels, beach chairs, flat screen tvs, dvds, games, indoor bluetooth speaker, and wireless secure internet. The patio offers an easy dining option with a seating area and gas grill. And after a day in the sun you can refresh yourself in the outdoor shower.

Beachfront paradise

  • 5 of 5

this charming house is the BEST. From the outstanding service from Mary, her housekeepers, and her landscapers, we couldn't have picked a better place to celebrate my son's wedding. Sitting on the porch after a long day, the view is amazing and listening to the waves come in was simply delightful. The towels are soft, the kitchen well stocked with everything you would need, plus beach chairs and toys, and corn hole for the lawn...what a wonderful combination. We have stayed in Wild Dunes and many beach houses in North Carolina. This is our absolute favorite. Hate to encourage others to book this place because I want to come back several times a year but Mary deserves a lot of praise for this place and her prompt service. We were there the day after Hurricane Irma and discovered the dune was not passable. The first night we were there, the landscapers came and made it possible for us and other family members who were staying a couple of blocks away to get safely to the beach....even for us old folks!

Thank You a million times over, Mary!!

Beautiful, clean, well-stocked beach house. Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

I am very picky when it comes to vacation rentals. That being said, I give this one 5 stars. The place was extremely clean. Mary, the property owner, is so sweet and welcoming. The kitchen is very well stocked. They even provide beach towels and beach chairs. We loved the large screened in porch. Absolutely no complaints about this rental.

Our favorite place

  • 5 of 5

To all who are looking,

This is a dreamy oasis of a beach house, perfect for that relaxing, cozy get away where you can hear the waves and feel the breeze. The place is so thoughtfully decorated and homey, with all of the comforts you could need provided for you. Just a note!!! We plan on staying every Christmas so don't take our days ;)! You would be lucky to grab it if the days you want are available. We will be back yearly! Xo

Family thanksgiving vacation

  • 5 of 5

Not only is this house a perfect gateway but the home owners really take the time to make your stay feel like you are at home. They pay such close attention to details. It's minutes from all the great places to eat on IOP but still so quiet and peaceful. The screened in porch is absolutely amazing! We ate our thanksgiving meal on it. We had plenty of room and a beautiful view! My family and I could go back every year.

Family vacation and birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

This place was PERFECT! While the pictures are accurate, they really don't do this charming house justice.

This kitchen was well stocked. The bedrooms were roomy and comfortable. But really the star was the screened in porch! This vacation week was focused on relaxation and the porch provided this without any work what so ever. Coffee and breakfast in the mornings with the sun rising and lingering into the mid morning when the decision had to be made...linger a little longer or walk down the private boardwalk to the beach? IN the evenings, when we returned back from golf or being a tourist (How fabulous is the Deep South and Charleston for history buffs!) we would eat on the porch and then play cards late into the evening as the ocean breeze keep us cool.

Mary was easy to communicate with and very friendly and accommodating. I have worried that Hurricane Matthew may have done some damage to the house....I hope not, because I intends to return to this small slice of heaven.
