Our house is our home, so it was not built as a rental. The design lends itself to relaxation, and it is an ideal getaway for family or friends who want to be far enough way from the traffic, but close enough to access everything.

The space

This is a modern house built 8 years ago with the idea of having an indoor/outdoor living space that you might see in California or in the Caribbean. All back doors open to a lush, tropical, and secluded backyard. It is perfect for outdoor dining and lounging, making it an ideal vacation rental. We have an automated mosquito mister in order to make being outside more enjoyable.

We are about a 3 minute walk to the beach. You also would have access to our golf cart and bikes to make the beach trip even quicker! The marina is a 5 minute golf cart ride which offers water activities, as well as a small grocery store, and cafe. Morgan Creek Grille is a waterfront restaurant which boasts of fine dining downstairs as well as a more casual rooftop menu.

Our house is 5 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths. The Master is on the first floor with a bathroom built to resemble a spa like atmosphere. The Master opens up to one of the back porches. The Master bedroom does not have blinds, on purpose, because we love the natural light.

The living room is an extremely open and airy space with a dinner table for 6 and second area to relax and enjoy a cocktail. The kitchen is equipped with all major, state of the art appliances as well as a TV room which opens up to another porch. This porch has a wraparound couch and swinging bed for another area to relax.

There are 2 upstair wings. The first is the kids wing which has a queen size bed in one room and 2 small children's beds in the other with a jack and jill bathroom in between. There is a play area in the hall way between the rooms. We have a Wii U as well allowing kids to play games as well as watch Netflix.

The other upstairs wing has a guest room with a king size bed and huge walk in shower. It is attached to our office which has a queen sized bed. These rooms share a bathroom and shower.

There are tons of things to do with the children in our area. We have a 15 ft. circular enclosed trampoline in the backyard. We have an outdoor fire pit. We have a swurfer swing. We have a basketball goal as well as a ping pong table. We are also 3 blocks away from the Isle of Palms Recreational Center that has tennis courts, basketball courts, and a huge playground.

We are tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, but historic, downtown Charleston is about a 20-25 minute drive. We are about 10 minutes to Sullivans Island which has many restaurants and bars as well as another park and beautiful beach.

The house has been featured in Charleston Magazine ((URL HIDDEN) under the home section titled "Ground Swell." This article really describes what we were trying to accomplish in building our home.

Guest access

Guests will have access to beach cruisers, one adult/child tandem bike, various children's bikes, scooters, and skateboards. We also have a golf cart which makes trips to the beach, the marina, and the park both fun and simple.

We will not be present when we have guests renting our home. We are often staying somewhere in town, and we have relatives down the street if there are questions or concerns.

Great place. Beautiful home. Just as pictured. Easy access to beach. Lots of fun toys available to guests (golf cart, scooters, fire pit, basketball hoop in driveway, tree swing). Lots of big communal space. Highly recommend.

Monica was an amazing host; communicative, flexible and helpful. I had been coordinating with Monica over the last couple months for a girls weekend and she was so helpful to give tips and other helpful things to help me make it a perfect weekend. While the house is 20 minutes from downtown we found such a relaxing peaceful place away from noise and chaos on Isle of Palms. The house itself is stunning, a true home that you can tell was designed and built around love. Thank you for making it an amazing weekend Monica!

Amazing house! Wonderful stay! The house is beautiful, as is the beach. All three generations loved our stay. My kids really enjoyed having a "kids area." We really appreciate the family opening up their home to us! Monica very kindly answered all of my questions before and during our stay :)

Monica was a great host. Answered all my questions before our visit. House is beautiful. The golf cart makes the trip to the beach much more manageable especially with kids. One of the ac units had an issue and she had it fixed the same day. The "palmetto" bugs take some getting used to but I know they're hard to control in the summer time. Overall a great experience and wonderful house. Monica was great.

Enjoyed a multi-generational, family vacation in a home designed to foster a great gathering. From the initial surprise when pulling into the driveway, thru the "guess its over" backing out of the driveway, Modern Isl of Palms was all that Monica promised. Exterior & interior picture are spot-on, but do not convey the "perfect entertainment" nature of the home. For the newest generation, plenty of things to do and plenty of things to play with. For the 'older' generation, great place to great local (Charleston/Mt. Pleasant) friends and entertain. Would we do it again, without hesitation, thanks Monica

I am from Greensboro, NC, but I have lived on the Isle Of Palms for 9 years with my husband, 8 year old son, and 5 year old daughter. I love traveling, yoga, exercising, and spending time with my family in this magical town..

We want to make your experience in our house similar to our own. We hope that you will be able to open the doors, relax, and just enjoy being tucked away in our home. With so much to do in the surrounding areas, we often find ourselves just as happy swinging on the back porch, listening to music, and unwinding. The house is really built for those experiences.
