About this listing
This private suite is on the front beach of the beautiful Isle of Palms. Perfect for a couple who wants a beautifully decorated get-away. Private entrance into your space, part of a fabulous home, where the owners live upstairs year round.
This cozy suite has a queen-size bed, private bathroom, TV, free WIFI, refrigerator, and coffee maker. The owners have beautiful antiques that they have used in this suite, making it an elegant, yet comfortably cozy space. There is only room for two people. Two beach chairs and beach towels are provided and you have a private path to the beach through the dunes, only steps away.
There is free parking on the street side of the home. You will have your own private entrance into your suite.
Interaction with guests
The owners live upstairs and are readily available for any help you may need. They let you decide how much interaction you would like with them, but will likely invite you up to their beautiful porch for a glass of wine!
You won't find a more conveniently located beachfront suite available for rent. Most of the neighbors are year round residents, but the tourists and day-trippers flock to the area in the summer months.
There is no public transportation available on the island, but taxis and Uber are available for getting into downtown Charleston. Bike rental companies are available. The owners' grandson has a charter boat company, Your Call Boat Charters, available to take you on a harbor cruise, fishing, or island exploring.
Other things to note
Isle of Palms is a gorgeous beach, and very convenient to downtown Charleston, an easy 20 minute drive away. The bedroom suite next to this one is also available to rent through Airbnb, so keep that in mind if you need two bedrooms for your vacation.
Please use the outside shower to remove sand and sunscreen, and please change into dry clothing before you sit on any of the furniture. No smoking allowed inside, but you have a patio outside that you can use. Please treat this suite as if it were your own. Please respect the fact that the owners live above you and keep noise at a minimum.
