"My family of 17, a mixture of grandparents, their adult kids and their young adult and soon to be adult grandchildren had a fabulous vacation at "L'Etoile Du Sud". Our extended family has enjoyed beach vacations on the East Coast for the past 20 years, with the past 3 years at Isle of Palms. We have returned to Isle of Palms because there are no crowds, no traffic in the area, there is very easy access to grocery store (minutes), the Charleston Airport is very close, and the City of Charleston is just 20 minutes away for hours or days of adventure. There is so much to do in the Isle of Palms area and this beach is the most beautiful I have seen on the East Coast.
This year we had a wonderful time at this vacation home. The owner Mark was very attentive and offered many suggestions for things to do in the area. He also was very attentive to the home and clearly let us know that if there were any issues we could call him anytime.
Our family loved this home as it is quite special with original artwork, a piano, and a unique floor plan. We enjoyed the up to date appliances, including large stainless fridge, brand new dishwasher, top of the line washer and dryer, and brand new separate ice maker in the living room area. We did not lack for anything in the kitchen, there were plenty of plates, silverware, utensils, etc., everything we needed. The dining table is the best ever. All 17 of us could sit together at one table each night. The adjacent living room has 3 leather couches where we watched the Olympic games many nights.
We enjoyed the media room off of the kitchen on the street side of the house and the large outdoor deck extending from this room with lots of seating and a brand new propane grill. This area was really a bonus that we haven't seen in other homes.
Also, the upstairs has a library area with a built in ironing board and an adjacent laundry room. The library area was also a nice buffer area, providing extra space.
The front decks were great, lots of sun even in the late afternoon when many IOP houses are shaded in the ocean side.
The shower and the toilet under the house were great during a day at the beach. Another bonus.
This Oceanfront Beach rental appears to have been enjoyed by many, well loved, and well maintained. It was perfect for our vacation this year. We hope to return again!"
