Unwind & enjoy the sweet life in your quiet, comfortable beach home just around the corner to the best beach on the East coast & local shops. Or play tourist & gourmet in Charleston, one of the world's favorite destinations, a short drive away.
Why cram yourself into an over-priced hotel room when you can live comfortably like a resident away from the tourists' noise and only steps from the beach? This three bedroom, two bath home, w/ kitchen, dining room, washer and dryer, is nestled under the oaks on a quiet, residential street and the perfect place for a family or a group of friends to vacation together.
You are a short walk to the ocean (about 3 minutes) and to town stores. Popular restaurants and bars are an easy walk or bike ride.

This was the perfect location for our small family. Laura and Michael were very responsive when we had questions.
We had a fabulous trip and the house worked out perfectly for us. Laura and Michael always got back to us very quickly when we had questions. We have 3 young kids and my in-laws came, too. There was plenty of space for our two oldest in the 3rd bedroom (they had even blown up a double size air mattress in the same room, so they each had their own bed). We had a pack n play in our bedroom with our toddler. The house is older but it was clean. We didn't do much cooking, but the one night we did, we found the kitchen supplies were very basic, so if you need measuring cups or anything like that, bring them.
We loved being close to the beach....it was about a 5 minute walk and they had a rolling cart for beachy stuff that we used to take all of our stuff. I think they even had a few beach chairs and a few towels (we brought our own). We took the water taxi over to Charleston one day from Mount Pleasant (free parking on this side) and then another day we did a carriage tour and had free 4 hr parking (book ahead to get that). It was a great weekend and the house was great for what we needed. The washer gave us a problem one day but with a text we were able to figure out the "trick" to open it. Otherwise, everything was great!
Laura was so easy to communicate with. We stayed there after our wedding and they surprised us with flowers and a bottle of champagne. So thoughtful! Perfect location on Isle of Palms and short walk to the beach!
Laura and Michael's house is in a perfect location a short walk from beautiful Isle of Palms beaches. They were very responsive to our needs. The apartment was very clean. Laura and Michael say they will be upgrading furniture which will be a plus. We had a great time overall and would be glad to stay again.
Michael and Laura are gracious hosts. The house is a very short walk to the beach. As close as you could want without being right on the water. There's a grocery store a few blocks away, and a few shoreline bars and restaurants around the bend. Overall this is a great spot and we had a blast. The furnishings in the house were very basic and beach friendly. The beds are comfortable and with bed linens and towels being provided it made it very easy to just show up, play well and rest well. Wifi was reliable for nights in, and the grill and fire pit in the back yard make for great entertainment spots. (Mosquitos are hungry though, so bring bug spray.)
Thanks, Scott for your great, informative review! We are calling our pest control right now. It is under contract for mosquito control--so we are sorry that it was a nuisance for you! You made thoughtful suggestions, and we will act on them right away. Thanks again, and we are so glad you all had a good time and enjoyed the waves, too!

Conveniently located right around the corner from the beach, this worked out great for a girls weekend away! Laura and Michael were so responsive in answering questions leading up to our arrival, and then again during our stay. We had 8 total ladies which although tight, really worked out great. The large dining table was perfect! Would definitely recommend this to other travelers.

We are a happy couple of teachers whose lives center around faith, family, and friends. We love going to the beach, cooking and sharing meals and conversation with friends, traveling everywhere, books, and movies. Michael is a surfer and runner, and he can teach ANYONE (except me) how to surf, and he knows all the good running trails. We have a comfortable, unpretentious, old-fashioned (circa1870) home in historic Summerville, walking distance to town and easy driving distance to Charleston and other local attractions. Our motto is: “Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.”
