The Space

6 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths (Sleeps 12-16)

BEACHFRONT - OCEAN BOULEVARD'S OCEANFRONT HOMES ARE THE CLOSEST LEGALLY POSSIBLE ON THE ISLAND, (without any erosion problems that others may be facing). These photos are accurate.


This spacious home on beachfront is designed for a large gathering of family and/or friends. The main living area, warmed by heart-of-pine bead-board and flooring, has four sofas to accommodate hanging-out and visiting. Antique dining table seats 10-16 with five stools at the adjoining kitchen counter/bar (plus a high chair for tots).

Both areas look out over the set-down screen porch with tables, chairs, rockers, hammock, and sundeck onto the beautiful white beach and ocean. You are close enough to watch older kids and/or friends swim or play horse shoes on the beach from inside the home.

Designed for congregating, this home also offers individual privacy. Each of the five adult bedrooms has its own TV with cable, 3 with DVDs; four of these have ocean views and three have doors onto the upper level deck. The large kid's room has been painted to resemble an aquarium. It has two sets of bunks with trundles under each, and TV/DVD.

The underneath of this home is a grill-out, hang-out, play area, white washed and open-air, 14 ft ceiling. It has 2 gas grills, 1 charcoal, propane streampot (email hidden) area, cd/mp3 player, ping pong table, hammock chairs, and various outdoor/beach games, as well as outdoor table and chairs. We keep 4-6 beach chairs (along with the resin adirondacks that are great for beach), a large cooler, and an awesome all-terain Wonder Wheeler to tote your things across your private boardwalk and down the dune. I also have info for a service that will set you up with wood and canvas loungers and umbrellas each morn. Call or email to ask about our pool access.

Bedroom breakdown:
1 king master BR with ocean view on main floor (other 5 BRs are upstairs)
4 Queen BRs, 3 with oceanfront view (2 have loveseats which have been also used as toddler beds)
(1 without ocean view)
6 twin beds in kid's room (2 sets of bunks with trundles; plus a port-a-crib for tots).

Bed linens and bath towels are provided.

We are set up to very comfortably accommodate 10 adults with 4-6 children, or 12-14 adults. Isle of Palms now strictly enforces their CODES which limit the number of guests in all rentals. We may only exceed 16 guests for children 2 years or younger. Guests risk a fine for violating Codes.


We choose this specific spot to build for the closest legal proximity to the beach (20 yds down our private boardwalk), safe swimming areas, and non-crowded privacy from the commercial area, a 3/4 mile walk.

You are 3/4 mile walk or drive down the beachfront to the Banana Cabana, the One Eyed Parrot, Long Island Cafe, Coconut Joe's, and many great restaurants. 3/4 mile the other way to The Boathouse Restaurant on Breech Inlet. The world famous Windjammer beach bar offers up nightly entertainment, and Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack 3 miles away in Mt. Pleasant has the best Lowcountry Shaggin outside of OD.

While enjoying the Island Life, you can go swimming, body surfing, play volleyball, dine at oceanfront restaurants, bike the beaches, jog, cruise the intercoastal waterway, sail, surf, windsurf, take in some live music, shop the boutiques. Check out the scuba diving or go deep sea fishing. Relax at a spa or try horseback riding. Kayak, parasail, water-ski, fish, go "Crabin or Shrimpin," walk the beach for shells, take a sunset cruise, charter a small boat, explore uninhabited islands, play some of the South’s finest golf courses.

You are only ten miles from the Historic District of Downtown Charleston. Take in the charm of this beautiful city and learn more about Charleston on a horse-drawn carriage ride, or tour Charleston Bay and Fort Sumter by boat. South Carolina Aquarium, world class restaurants, the Charleston City Open Market and shopping galore, live theater, live music, museums, and more.

You are just five minutes from Mount Pleasant Towne Centre: an upscale shopping experience in classic southern style. With over 65 national and local tenants, including: Banana Republic, Gap, Bath & Body Works, Caché, Men's Wearhouse and Old Navy, as well as the regions only J.Jill, Coldwater Creek and Francesca's. Sample exquisite home-made candy at Sweet Julep's Candy & Gifts, or dine in style at Guy Harvey, Longhorn Steakhouse, Chili's, TGI Friday's, Atlanta Bread Company, - there is sure to be a culinary diversion to suit your palette. After dinner, stroll the lush, tree-lined streets or relax at the luxurious Palmetto Grande 16-screen theatre. Ten minutes away you'll find famous Shem Creek shrimp boats and seafood restaurants. The Yorktown WWII destroyer and several historical plantations are all within easy driving distance as well.

(Please note: there is a seperate 1 BR corporate apt attached to, but fire-walled and sound-proofed from, the main house. This is owned seperately and NOT available for rental. Occassionaly, there may be 1 or 2 adults only using that apt. Ask for more details.)

Private chef services are available. Ask for more info.

(We provide a lmited amount of start-up paper goods, soaps, etc.)

  • I can't recommend this house highly enough! I brought my dad here to celebrate his 60th birthday and the house VERY comfortably fit 10 adults. We cooked a few giant meals in the beautiful kitchen, ate at the amazing dining room table and spent plenty of time gawking at the incredible ocean view from the cozy couches.

    We spent all weekend planning our next trip, we can't wait to go back!! My only regret was that we didn't plan MORE time to just relax on the beach... But we'll save that for our next visit! Thanks, Susan, for lending your house to such a wonderful weekend.
