Blue House Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time. My wife and I, with our entire family consisting of two sons and two daughters, along with their spouses or friends spent a week enjoying each other and the beach in July. The house was very comfortable and spacious. The screen porch is enormous, and provided us hours of pleasure. It also was secure enough to let our 2 year old grandaughter roam about freely. The house was very clean and homey, without being too pretentious, The owners are very friendly, and greeted us upon arrival. The waves were great for playing in, and the beach was clean. I will definitely be renting this place again. I have stayed in numerous rentals on the IOP for the last 15 years or so, and this ranks right at the top.

Great, spacious vacation home for family of all ages

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 generations and teenage friends had a delightful week at this wonderful, very comfortable beach home. Reading the book “The Island Then and Now” published by the author gives the rich history of the island as she shares her love and happy memories of this special place. We especially enjoyed low country boil on the picnic tables under the house and our meals on the screened porch overlooking the ocean. Life doesn’t get any better! 😊�

Absolutely wonderful beach home!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 had a wonderful, comfortable week in this beautifully done beach home. Kitchen was better stocked than my own home!! All beds were comfortable, plenty of room upstairs and downstairs (inside) and under home was perfect.... we set up cornhole boards there and we used the picnic tables for our Beaufort Stew night. Owner was always responsive before we arrived and although we did not have to contact while we were there, know the response would have been quick. Our extended family has been coming to IOP for about 20 years now and at this point we have split in to separate family groups because we are so big. Our family has found the home we want to stay in for many, many summers to come. Thank you Stanley, for sharing your home!!!

Great house and great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed on IOP during the July 4th week. The house was very well appointed and the labeling in the kitchen and on the light switches was very helpful. We loved the screened porch and fit all of our family around the big table out there for meals. The kids especially loved the sun deck upstairs and we were frequently up there at night admiring the stars and moon rising.

The ground level had a ton of space and was very clean. Both outdoor showers got used frequently and the ceilings were high enough for some competitive games of cornhole under the house. The backyard is very private and immense - 110 paces to the sand.

The multiple ice makers were a nice touch as is the 2nd refrigerator upstairs. The only thing to even negatively comment on is that the master BR only has a double sized bed in it, although there are kings in 2 of the other BR's.

We would gladly rent this house again.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words. So glad you enjoyed your stay. We've actually been trying to figure out if we could fit a king bed in the master bedroom instead of the queen bed that is in there now. So that is a work in progress. All the best and do come again. Stanley

Wonderful family house

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful experience for everyone in our family from 3 to 71! Great house.....clean, well maintained, super easy access to beach. Loved the underneath area with shade and grill for late afternoon fun for kids. The screened in porch was where we started and ended the day, so nice! Thank you for sharing your home and stories/history of the island.
