Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom/bath(upper level-UL). Bedroom/bath lower level (LL) unit additional $.

SHIAWA-SEA, a classic, family-owned cottage, with cedar shake-look siding and a sand-colored, standing-seam, metal roof, is 2 blocks from the Atlantic Ocean in a quiet, coastal neighborhood. Your stay @ Shiawa-Sea will be the perfect get-away for couples traveling together and small families (including your pet). A lower level (LL) bedroom/bath unit with a full kitchen, family room and home office, is available for an additional fee.

You first enter the expansive, cobalt blue, carpeted screened porch, through a hand-crafted, mahogany screen door with South Carolina's state flag logo (palmetto/moon), to relax in the Pawleys Island hammock, enjoy appetizers/beverages in the original Bentwood-style furniture dining area and begin your stay on the Island. Cottage-style features include ceiling fans throughout.

You then step into the entry room, through the ocean blue, hardwood door, with glass block side windows. Another cottage-style feature is stucco plaster walls throughout.

The bedrooms, with queen-size beds and ocean blue or nautical quilts, have glass block-look awning and leaded glass sliding windows, which open to capture the ocean roar and breeze, and cool the casual living space. The Cottage has central heat and air conditioning for the non-optimal seasons.

The open family-kitchen, has a 50 inch flat screen, HD TV mounted above the gas log fireplace. All floors are maple hardwood with chevron, fish, seashell, sailboat or daisy accent rugs. The original kitchen cabinets (circa 1947) are white-painted solid wood, the countertops are classic white Formica. An ocean blue, custom painted, French door refrigerator with bottom-mount freezer and a cobalt blue, hand-pottered, whale- accented ceramic tile back splash, will enhance your culinary experience. A gas grill, located on the walkway to the hot tub, is available for outdoor cooking. An umbrella table and chairs, on the front deck, are available for al fresco dining.

The hot tub, which is maintained at 102 degrees, is perfect for enjoying the afternoon sun and watching the sunset. The outdoor shower room near the hot tub, has hot and cold water, allowing for year-round use. You have use of the year-round maintained, unheated pool, which is on our adjacent, coastal property.

South Carolina's moderate climate allows for year-round outdoor activities with beach days extending into December. The ocean temperature moderates in mid-April with 'good ole' summertime to follow. Enjoy the lazy days of summer on 'Main Street', our wide, sandy beach, just a 2 block walk away. In late Fall/Holiday-time/Winter, you will find the sitting area, near the gas log fireplace, to be a perfect spot to enjoy hot & cold beverages after a brisk walk/run on the beach. Also, the outdoor firepit awaits you to roast our succulent, salty local oysters.

We know you will enjoy walks on the beach to the world-famous Windjammer, for seafood, burgers, tropical drinks and live music. Also, you can take a short walk to Breach Inlet for dolphin/sunset-watching and dining at the Boathouse. We are confident you will enjoy your stay with us, where we have worked, raised children, enjoyed coastal living and our Island lifestyle for 37 (and counting!) years.

Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Very convenient to what we wanted to do.

So pretty!! Easy 2 block walk to the beach. The home was very comfortable. About half way into our stay, the wifi and cable went out. The landlords were very prompt to getting it fixed. And whenever we had questions, they were always quick to respond. If we come back to Isle of Palms, this is where we will stay again!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We visited the area for the first time this month. We really loved the cottage--so much that we stayed an additional night! We spent 3 nights in upper level and 2 nights in lower level. Both areas were very clean and everything was provided! We preferred the upper level because it was roomier and included use of screened porch (my favorite part). Only one issue in lower area---there is a step down between kitchen and living room which is somewhat dangerous. Overall we loved our visit and would definitely return!

Wonderful beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely home. It was perfectly located to everything we wanted to do - just a few blocks to beach and very close to downtown Charleston. Lovely cottage was very clean and welcoming, well stocked and totally comfortable. We will definitely want to go back again!

  • 5 of 5

Once again a perfect week at our little gem in the Isle of Palms! We have been staying here since 2006 and each year we stay, we love it even more. Everything you need in an updated beach cottage. Loved the added big screen TV. Always super clean.. Great laundry facilities . We love the outdoor shower and screened in porch with the relaxing hammock..Thank you again for more memories made. See you next year! :)
