Beautiful 1-BR Oceanfront - Closest to Beach & Private Pier! UPDATED JAN. 2017!!

Bedrooms 1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom with 2 Sleeper Sofas. Oceanfront End Unit Closest To Beach

Create memories that will last a lifetime at this perfect coastal location! With its tranquil surf, beautiful beach, and warm climate, Isle of Palms is ideal for a family vacation or a romantic retreat for just the two of you. Unit #101 is located just steps from the beach access and the complex-owned private fishing pier, both gated. This is a first floor unit and still has an amazing, tropical view down the beach!

Our condo, Shipp's Treasure, is an end unit so you have only the dunes with the sand and sea beyond. The southeast facing window provides that extra sunlight that is only afforded to the end units. Beautiful, lush vegetation on the dunes maintains your privacy as well as the custom plantation shutters! This close to the ocean you can hear the surf on the balcony or through an open window. Open the doors and feel the warm ocean breeze blow right through the condo!

UPDATED - JANUARY 2017!! - WE'VE JUST COMPLETED THE INSTALLATION OF A BRAND NEW CERAMIC TILE FLOOR THROUGHOUT AND AN ELEGANT TILED WALK-IN SHOWER!!! Other appointments that make our condo one of the nicest in the complex include: beautiful granite countertops in kitchen and bath, abundant pantry storage with custom pull-out drawers, full-size range, bead-board cabinetry, flat screen HD TVs in both living area and bedroom, and dual sleeper sofas. We are unit 101 on the first floor, just 10 stairs to the private boardwalk. Possibly the shortest walk from the complex to the ocean, pier, and one of the picnic/grill areas, and the pool is just a few more steps beyond. The pool house has a laundry facility that offers commercial grade washers and dryers for those longer stays or off-season retreats.

Our condo is less than 14 miles from the city of Charleston. In downtown Charleston, get a real sense of early America and enjoy the southern charm and beauty of this historic location, voted the #1 city in America by Conde Naste Traveler magazine! Shop at the Old Market, take a horse drawn carriage ride down cobblestone streets, cruise the world famous waterfront Battery, or take an evening Ghost Tour! With some of the best restaurants in the nation, you’ll never be short of good food and fun.

Want something even closer? The city of Mt. Pleasant is just across the IOP connector and has an abundance of shopping, restaurants, sight-seeing (e.g. Boone Hall Plantation), and night life.

Visit Shipp's Treasure on the Isle of Palms and let the memories begin!

Why Paul Shipp chose Charleston Area

With our deep love of Charleston and Isle of Palms, and with family only minutes away in Mt. Pleasant, it was inevitable that we would own property on the island, and this property is the perfect location! The condo offers everything that we love about the low country; beautiful scenery, a quick stroll to the restaurants and shops on IOP, and easy access to all the culture, shopping, and experiences that Mt. Pleasant and Charleston have to offer.

Our family has been coming to the area since our oldest children, now grown, were youngsters and hope to create many more lasting memories with our youngest child and (someday) grandchildren! We feel truly blessed to have this 'home' on the island to call our own.

What makes this condo unique

We love the toned down, family atmosphere; the short walk to island shops and iconic restaurants, watching the dolphins play in the surf and the waters of Breach Inlet, and the fact that we are only minutes from beautiful Charleston!

The condo is situated literally just behind the dune of the beach! You can open the window or sit on the deck and hear the waves breaking on the sand. Very peaceful!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at your condo. Actually it was the cleanest we have ever rented and we have been in a number of them. Isle of Palms was beautiful and we loved Charleston. Thanks for making the process so easy!

Just simply a wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed Paul Shipp's Condo for the week before Christmas and the week after. The island and resort complex was peaceful and relaxed. The condo is as close as a two minute walk to the beach. Sitting on the first floor balcony we enjoyed each evening sunset. The condo is equipped with all the essentials and then some. Everything was in excellent working order, clean and comfortable. It's an easy 20 minute drive to historic Charleston for lunch, dinner, shopping and sightseeing. We had a great time and will encourage our friends to consider vacationing here at the Isle of Palms. Thank you Paul.

Owner's Response: Bob We're very glad to hear that you had a great experience in our condo on IOP! This is our 2nd home and we strive to keep it clean, well appointed, and updated not only for our enjoyment but the enjoyment of all of our guests. In fact, immediately after your departure we initiated a renovation project which we are just now completing - a brand new tiled floor and beautiful tiled shower! We will have pictures posted soon. We truly are glad that you enjoyed your stay in our home and in the low country, and we hope that you will return to experience the area again. Paul & Ruth

Perfect location/perfect size.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Isle of Palms. The condo was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed to make our stay perfect. The location to the beach and fishing pier can't be beat!

Excellent Beach Condo--Clean and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful condo for three days, and we had a fabulous time! We would recommend it as a romantic spot for a couple. The oceanside location was very scenic and had great access to the beach and pier. We enjoyed being able to walk out the door right onto the beach for morning sunrises, evening walks, swimming, etc. The condo was cozy and clean--comfortable bed as well. We appreciated the well-stocked kitchen and modern décor. The balcony was nice with ample seating--great place to enjoy your morning coffee! The owner was very friendly, helpful, and easy to work with. He was responsive to phone calls and emails. He also provided some good insight on restaurants and things to do on the Isle of Palms and the surrounding area. We would definitely return to this place and highly recommend it to others!

Small space, not comfortable for more than two people

  • 3 of 5

It is best suited for two people, even though it says it sleeps up to four (which it technically does because of the pull out couch) it was very tight for us even with only two adults and two children. It's a very small space with only two bar stools for the kitchen island and two chairs on the balcony, it really seems best suited for two people. The pull out couch is very uncomfortable, we ended up using that and the air mattress they had there, although it wasn't much more comfortable than the couch. Also, we had no refills for toilet paper or paper towels and since we were there for five days, we ran out. The unit is right by the beach, but because of that there is also a lot of foot traffic/people and not much privacy. Due to the lack of space and uncomfortable sleeping arrangements, I gave it a lower rating.

Owner's Response: Rhiannon, Let us address your comments individually: "best suited for 2 people" Yes, 1-BR condos are usually best suited for 2. We clearly advertise ours as a 1-BR with sleeper sofa (new in 2013). We do not know of a sleeper sofa that is as comfortable as a bed, although we never have trouble getting good rest on it when we stay in our unit. Also, both children and adults in the past have found the air mattress to be quite comfortable. "small space..." Again, it's a 1-BR unit. The web pictures clearly show its contents/layout. "no refills…" Our cleaning service prepares the condo for each arriving guest with 2 rolls of toilet paper, 2 sets of clean towels (bath, hand, wash cloth), and bath mat, as well as paper towels (2 rolls), wash cloth, dish towel, and liquid detergent for the kitchen and bathroom. If you had requested more towels prior to your arrival, we would gladly have made arrangements for you. Also, as photos clearly show, there are washers/dryers on site for laundering your items. There is a new Harris Teeter grocery 1 block from the complex (4 min. walk/2 min. ride) for purchasing re-supplies. We are not a hotel and it is not incumbent upon us as owners to keep our renters stocked with consumables, nor do we know of any owner-rented property on the island, or anywhere for that matter, that supplies such a service without extra fees. “right by the beach…” Yes! It IS right by the beach! That’s what we love about it. We have had nothing but overwhelming positive comments about our condo’s proximity to the beach/ocean. The unit is an end unit which, normally, is highly desired as you don’t have neighbors on both sides. Of obvious note is that you made no mention of the qualities of our condo that set us apart from most: cleanliness; kitchen well stocked with dishes/pots, small appliances, utensils; free hi-speed internet; extensive storage space, granite counters and tile throughout, custom built deck stools (there are 3 seats on the deck), etc. This is our home that we have opened up for rental so that others may enjoy. Please don't take it out on us with a mediocre rating because you wanted more space/beds. It sounds like you probably should have rented a 2-bedroom unit on the island to meet your space requirements, or somewhere off island for privacy. We might suggest doing your research and asking questions early (we are ALWAYS reachable by phone) for your next rental so that both you and the owner know exactly what to expect.

A very short walk to the island shops and restaurants on the IOP boulevard. Enjoy the beach atmosphere of Banana Cabana, Coconut Joe's restaurant and live music on their open air roof bar, fine dining at Acme Low Country Kitchen (and great breakfasts!) or the Coda del Pesce, and Charleston's Premier Beachclub the Windjammer! USA Travel 10 Best says 'many bands regard the Jammer as one of the Southeast’s top venues'
