Brand new remodel with wall to wall tile flooring, full renovation in the bathroom with floor to ceiling tile, and brand new full size stainless steel appliances in the kitchen.

This amazing house also sits on a 10,000 square foot lot so there is plenty of parking for family and friends.

Closer to home, John's Pass Village is less than a mile, with a host of entertainment options including Bubba Gump, The Friendly Fisherman, Waltz Fish Shack, The Hut and Scully's- with live entertainment, and a fresh seafood market on the water. There is so much to do for all ages and interests to include water sports and a 9 hole golf course around the corner.

You will truly have a great time while making memories to last a lifetime!

About Mike Fitzgerald and Michelle Hogan, Husband and Wife

Mike Fitzgerald and Michelle Hogan, Husband and Wife purchased this house in 2014

Why Mike Fitzgerald and Michelle Hogan, Husband and Wife chose Treasure Island

This is our duplex private home. You get away from a mix-use 'condo feel' and can make our home your home and enjoy the comforts of your own driveway and private dock.

Enjoy catching fresh fish and crab on our dock. Our waterview is a quiet no wake zone, with direct views across to the gulf boulevard beach strip. Evening lights and fireworks on occasion are second to none!

Note: stairs to second unit.

What makes this house unique

Beach fireworks 4 times per year that can be seen from our back dock!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great stay. Got to see the sand castle festival on the beach... and fireworks!

Upstairs unit was perfect -- super clean and loved the full kitchen and modern bathroom.

Views as stated! Lovely sunsets. We will be back soon.

Isle of Palms studio perfectly sited for Treasure Island getaway

  • 5 of 5

Mike and Michele's second-floor studio was ideal for our five-day winter break on the Gulf Coast. Truly easy walks to white-sand beaches and good restaurants. Isle of Palms is a quiet neighborhood with little traffic, and the very sunny property has a bay-side waterfront with private dock. We saw dolphins nearby only once (but we were usually away doing other activities), but even that was a thrill. The studio is very clean and well furnished, with a very comfortable king-sized bed, and a full-size kitchen met all of our needs. Mike and Michele are very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The only thing we missed was a shady private outdoor space in which to relax during the daytime, as the open southern exposure and all-day-sun conditions could be offset by some sort of canopy or shade. Overall, this studio is ideal for a well-priced, well-sited retreat.

Nice place.

  • 4 of 5

The owner is very nice and helpful to ensure our stay was great. Although the picture shown is not the actual place we rented, it is a picture of their apartment with their pool. The studio apartment is on the other side of the building. The owner did gives us permission to use their pool, and to use any equipment, such as fishing poles, sun umbrellas, beach bikes, BBQ grill and beach towels. He (owner) also allowed us to use their dock to tie up our boat. I would give them 5 stars, but was a bit deceived on the posted picture is of their house with the pool, and not the actual studio apartment we were renting. The place was very clean, close to the beach and dining.

Thank you for everything.

Nice place to stay just a few things I would change.

  • 4 of 5

The place itself is nice. The bedroom is very, very bright in the morning. The white blinds don't do much to block out light. It's also very noisy between the birds out on the waterway and the treasure island public works vehicle getting started at 7am across the water. So if you need dark and quiet like I do to sleep you may have trouble. Of course this isn't the owners fault, it's just the location. Also the beds are on rollers and every time you get up they move around. I will say some of the bedding and towels had some stains on them. You can tell they were washed and more of a permanent stain, but if it was me, I would just throw out the linens and replace them. I did run some stuff through the washer just to be sure they were clean. The place itself is not bad and a great deal for the location. I would like to see some new darker blinds to keep out the light and new linens. Otherwise this place was great.

Definitely home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I cannot rave enough about this rental and the owners. We have had nothing but the best hospitality since we pulled in the drive way. Room had AC running after we lugged our stuff inside. Sunsets and view from dock is breath taking. This room is perfect for a couple or two friends. We had beds pushed together to make a king bed and slept comfortably. Kayaks were also wonderful to use in the bay. Beach acces is one road up, if you take very little convent to walk. This home is located perfectly to access other areas outside of TI. I will for sure be back and recommending this to everyone. Full kitchen, updated bathroom, comfy bed, and a beautiful view - what more do ya need??? Can't wait to come back
