About Alan & Suzanne Poston

Hello! We feel very blessed to own a home on Seabrook Island. We are parents to Drew (11) Kelly (7) and a new "surprise" baby Thomas (8 months). We stay busy taking care of our family and going to work everyday just like you! We own and operate Alan"s Wheels, an online/local tire store based out of Travelers Rest, SC. When we are not working at the store we are busy with baseball, working in our church and spending our free time at Seabrook Island…usually cleaning and updating our cottage! We are looking forward to making many memories here and hope you will come to love the island as much as we do!

Alan & Suzanne Poston purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Alan & Suzanne Poston chose Seabrook Island

We vacationed at Seabrook for 14 years before buying our cottage. We rented a Tarpon Pond cottage for the past 7 years and came to love this little neighborhood. It is private and perfect for kids. A tarpon pond cottage has the perfect floor plan when vacationing with a large or multiple families. The gorgeous golf course and marsh views along with the closeness to the beach/pool is a plus and has become a sought after spot on the island. We found this cottage a few years ago in desperate need of updating and repairs. We spent our entire summer that year at Seabrook and put a lot of hard work and love into our home. We are very proud of the end result. We hope you enjoy your stay!

What makes this cottage unique

Peaceful, off the main neighborhood road. Very close to the beach and club house pools. Gorgeous live oak, marsh and golf course views. A gorgeous 30 min. drive in to Charleston where you can enjoy all that downtown has to offer.

Fabulous Seabrook Island Rental... quiet, clean, bikes!

  • 5 of 5

My family recently stayed in this cottage and absolutely loved it. It was an adorable cottage, very nicely decorated and very clean. Bikes were a great perk and we took several rides. My two boys also enjoyed them, my 7 year old rode one of the kiddie bikes and my 4 year old rode in the bike trailer that was also available!

Kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed and we cooked dinner in 3 times, making use of the grill as well. Nice large kitchen table that fit all of us for meals.

Nice location as it was tucked back a quiet space. Made use of the shady screened in porch in the mornings for our coffee and at night with wine! :) Amenity cards were included and we made daily use of the club, restaurant, pools, etc. Was close enough to beach to run/bike there for my morning runs on the beach.

This was our second trip to Seabrook, but first in this rental and it was GREAT!

Communication was also great with the owners - before and during our stay.

Thank you!!

Great home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This property had all the Amenties you need! Felt like staying at a friends house instead of a rental. Very up to date decor. Close enough to Charleston yet away from the city traffic. Several restaurants within a ten minute drive. Would stay there over and over again.

Perfect Family Escape

  • 5 of 5

Cobby Creek was the perfect getaway for my family and me. They had everything we needed and didn't have to remember to bring or pack a bunch of extra stuff. We loved the accommodations and the scenery was just lovely. We will for sure be back! We can't wait to plan our next stay.

Wonderful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our time at Suzanne and Alan's beach house. The house was just as they described it. It is recently remodeled, very clean and beautifully decorated. The beds were very comfortable. Nice TV's in the bedrooms. We loved the outdoor deck overlooking the golf course. The use of the bicycles was an added plus. Suzanne was a pleasure to work with. I had excellent communication with her. We'd definitely stay here again!

Seabrook Christmas

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time to Seabrook and we chose to be there over Christmas - it didn't disappoint. We travelled with our 3 children (ages 15-7) and we all were very comfortable in the well equipped house, the holiday decorations were a nice touch as well. We spent time in Charleston, visited the Angel Oak on our way to the tea plantation and enjoyed strolling around Freshfields Village. Even though the weather was overcast it was very pleasant and we enjoyed the screened in porch and riding the bikes to the beach. We all enjoyed watching the dolphins and finding shells on the amazing wide beach. It is a family trip we won't forget and look forward to planning our next.

Perfect Tarpon Pond Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This was my 9th visit to the area and this was the best rental I have had! The cottage has absolutely everything you would need for your stay. The recent renovation was done thoughtfully and with your comfort in mind. The bikes were used daily even though the weather was not good (an oddity for SI - usually it's dry and sunny) We went to the beach and enjoyed the facilities immensely. The cottage had absolutely everything you might need to cook and clean up afterwards. The owners were an absolutely delight - very easy to deal with - and did a lot to make our stay comfortable. I will be back and would not think of renting anywhere else.
