Overview

About the property

2 bed, 2 bath, sleeps 6

Goat Island is unique! Arriving by Private Boat Only, this is where the fun begins...... You can paint your own individual theme for your stay on the back of the Smiley Face, a game of Ping Pong on the front porch, laying in hammocks, fishing the back beach on Gray Bay, kayaking the ICW, swimming off the dock, and exploring Buccaneer Road.

Enjoy beautiful sun sets and rises. Cook local oysters under the stars while sitting around a roaring fire, or bask in the sun for hours on your own private dock while your fishing and crabbing lines are out catching fresh seafood for dinner. The Smiley Face House can offer you all of this and more for year round fun and relaxation.

The house has a complete rap around deck so there is always shade or sun shine somewhere.

This home features two bedrooms. One king bedroom and one queen bedroom with one set of bunks, sleeping a total of six people. There is an additional apartment that is available with a queen size bed that can sleep two. Home includes a fully equipped kitchen with several new appliances , 48' flat screen with complete direct tv,gas and charcoal grill,3 kayaks 1 double and 2 single, canoe, dock, ping pong table, giant jinga, hook and hoop, games, and linens. Please remember this is an island you can only get to by boat. If you do not have a boat we will be happy to provide a ride to and from the Island upon check in and check out.

Great wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This place never let's you down. It has everything you need. What a view. Jimmy, as always is super nice! Really enjoy fishing and crabbing off the dock. Such a great long weekend. Had a wedding out on Capers Island. It was beautiful. Ready to get back to Goat.

Great place & awesome owner

  • 5 of 5

2nd trip to this house this summer; took our kids this time & they had a great time. Jimmy (owner) gave the boys pointers on fishing the icw, cooked blue crabs. We'll be making this an annual trip. So happy we found such a great place (this was my 1st experience w/ a rental by owner & it couldn't have turned out better)

Wonderful Family Vacation on Goat Island

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Smiley Face House. I will say I was hesitant at first because we don't own a boat-

But Jimmy was available to bring us to the marina or to the beach whenever we wanted to go.

The house is beautiful inside and out. I can't stress enough how beautiful it was to be able to sit on the porch or patio and watch the sun rise and set.

We also used the kayaks that Jimmy provided every day- it was such a great bonding vacation with my three teenage kids!

I told Jimmy this when I booked the house and I'll say it again.. I booked the house because I heard all the rave reviews about Jimmy- and how he helped and was available for boat rides and I thought how nice would that be not to have to worry about anything on my vacation..

Well.. I'll tell you...

It's all true- everything you've read is accurate.

Jimmy cooked crab for us, helped with fishing, drove us around, helped my daughter find sea shells, helped my son golf...

If you are looking for an experience on an island... this is it.

My only regret is that we should have stayed longer in the house instead of splitting up our trip in downtown Charleston the first 3 nights.

The people of Goat Island are wonderful- we parasailed, we ate until we just can't eat anymore.. everyone was friendly and everyone knew JIMMY!

Thanks for everything- we will remember this trip for a lifetime!

Owner has thought of everything for the perfect vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 couples - plenty of room for privacy (each room has its own bathroom). The house is completely stocked. There is ping pong, ring, jenga, corn hole, seating on porch, seating on screened porch, hooks for enos, enos, gas grill, charcoal grill.

Owner has plenty of bumpers to protect boats.

House is spotless & very well stocked.

We miscalculated our travel time via water but Jimmy was not only understanding when we ran late he was concerned for our safety because of the storms & he emailed us frequently to check on us.
