Isle of Palms, South Carolina
If you are looking for a fabulous beach vacation, with access to one of the loveliest stretches of beach in the United States, Isle of Palms is for you.
Our home offers plenty of space for a large family get together, with six bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and 7 porches -- many with stunning views of the ocean, which is a mere hop, skip & a jump from our front porch. Our open, sunny beach house is perfect for families with children as it is located on one of the very sought after quiet, charming side streets leading to the right to the beach -- with no major roads to cross, nor traffic. We are right off the sand dunes and away from the more crowded beach areas on the island -- this is truly Island Living at its best!
And you will not lack for plenty of other activities if you want to take a break from the beach one day, some of the nearby offerings include: Deep sea fishing, shore fishing, Barrier Island EcoTours, water skiing and wakeboarding, banana boat rides, sunset cruises, area golf courses, Palmetto Islands Park, crabbing, waterpark, Spoleto Festival in May/June, dolphin watching, rollerblading, nice public playgrounds, and fabulous shopping and dining, Other local attractions, Charleston's many fabulous gourmet restaurants, wonderful antique stores, Waterfront Park, South Carolina Aquarium, Charleston Museum, Fort Moultrie, Fort Sumter National Museum, Gibbes Museum of Art, Historic plantations and homes, Patriot's Point Naval & Maritime Museum, The Market, The Battery, The Hunley Museum, Ghost Tours of Charleston, Charleston RiverDogs Baseball, Children's Museum of the Lowcountry, Cypress Gardens, Magnolia Plantation and Gardens, Art Galleries and Antique Shops, Carriage Tours, Imax Theatre and Fountain Walk, The Citadel and Hampton Park and Pro Hockey in the winter.
But after a long day touring the wonderful historic sights, shopping, boating or swimming -- there is nothing that can quite match an evening cocktail with family and friends on the main porch rockers at Palms' Porch surrounded by palm trees and ocean views! We hope you will come visit us soon!

Very enjoyable stay
Considering the first three days of stay we got 22" of rain, we got to know the house very well and ended up having a great time. at the Palms Porch. The home is extremely comfortable and very casual, much to our style. We has ten adults and everyone had had great time and no time did the house seem small. The views are amazing and the proximity to the beach is great. Once the sun came out, we used the bikes provided to ride on the beach and used the surf boards in the 80 degree water. The beds were comfortable and the rooms are very large. Lots of steps (four floors) but it allowed us to get in our cardio and was not an issue. The island is an easy drive to Charleston (maybe 20 minutes) and has great grocery store and everything you need within a 5-10 minute drive. We had some flooding and leaking issues, which I guess is to expected when you get a "once in a decade" weather event but all and all the house was great. I would recompensed the Porches to anyone looking for a casual beach house that sleeps a crowd in a killer location.”
