About Riley Cates

We are a family of three that live in the area. This was our primary residence until 2004 when we built a home closer to our daughter's school. The location on the Waterway is so enjoyable we could not bear to sell and are at this home every chance we get.

Why Riley Cates chose Isle of Palms

This home was completely renovated in 2013 with new flooring , paint, even new furnishings. This is not your typical rental due to the quality of furnishings and accessories. We only rent this home four or five weeks a year just to cover the property taxes which allows us to keep the property. So if you want a beautiful house with all that the IOP has to offer out your back door, you found it.

What makes this house unique

The covered dock will allow you to experience the Island like a local with all the water activities at your fingertips.

A beautiful home, perfect for a relaxing family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Like another reviewer stated, we too, have stayed in many homes on IOP over the years, many of which were oceanfront. This home was by far the best experience we have had on our trips to Charleston. This home is beautifully decorated, exceptionally clean, the beds and linens were heavenly, and the kitchen was spotless with everything a family would need. We were never at a loss for activities - ping pong, kayaking, bike rides, golf carting to the beach, fishing off the dock, or just watching the beautiful sunset from the back porch watching the boats go by. The owner was very helpful and made us feel welcome. We cannot wait to visit here again!

Awesome experience on the Intracoastal!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and another couple visited this delightful and charming property over Memorial Day week and could not have been more pleased. The furnishings and decor were second to none, and the owners created a relaxing atmosphere for entertaining, dining in, and enjoying the dock and beach. The back porch provided hours of entertainment ... cocktails, barbecuing and dining, all while watching the activity up and down the waterway. Overall, an awesome week on Isle of Palms!

Amazing home! Beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed many places on the Isle of Palms, including many condos in Wild Dunes, and we are very particular about the places we stay. This home was by far the best place we have stayed in this area. The home is beautifully decorated and immaculate. Everything we needed was there. The kids (twins, age 8) enjoyed fishing off the covered dock, along with my 78 year-old father. There was a crab trap which was fun to check every morning. The views on the intracoastal are just beautiful. The golf cart was fun for trips to the beach (very short ride away). The kids had fun with the ping pong table in the basement too. There were bikes for the adults, so we only had to rent some for the kids. I can't say enough good things about this home and the helpfulness of the owner. We are definitely planning a return trip soon.
