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.
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.
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.
Interaction with guests
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.
Other things to note
Our check in time is 3, and check out time is 11. We are typically able to work around our guests' schedules if these times need to be adjusted.
We would ask that you treat our house like it is your own… This is our full time residence, and we love to share this space with our guest. We just ask that you are respectful of our furniture, our belongings, and please, no smoking anywhere inside the house.
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.
