Bordered by pristine beaches and a network of marsh creeks, the barrier island of Isle of Palms has been a vacation spot since the late 19th century when it was only accessible by ferry. In 1929, a bridge was built, which opened up the island to more than just local residents. Today, it’s the island’s great fishing, beaches and golf that provide a few of the magnets for visitors. With a laid-back, easy going, resort lifestyle, the most popular fashion statement is flip-flops and a t-shirt. Isle of Palms is a great place to gear down from a hectic lifestyle. With that in mind, you should consider a spacious and comfortable vacation rental.
A comfortable and amenity-rich vacation rental is a much better option than a small, boring hotel room. After a day of cruising the area’s creeks and rivers or deep-sea fishing, you’ll feel rewarded when you return to a welcoming vacation rental. The magnificent stretch of beach on Isle of Palms is both photogenic and fun. Once you’ve done your obligatory sunbathing and beachcombing at the Isle of Palms County Park Beach, head to nearby Charleston, a 30-minute drive away, which has historic sites, landmarks, shopping districts, golf courses and family attractions like The South Carolina Aquarium and Fountain Walk, a new dining, entertainment and shopping complex nearby. For golfers, the Wild Dunes Resort on the Isle of Palms features two 18-hole courses designed by Tom Fazio and there are several more excellent layouts on the mainland, including Patriots Point and Charleston National Country Club.
Whether you decide on a villa with an ocean view, a spacious modern home, quaint cottage or cute cabin, you’ll enjoy the freedom, convenience and value of a vacation rental. Imagine all the possibilities for money-saving meals you’ll have in your fully equipped kitchen. You can prepare your family everything from a sumptuous grilled fish dinner to an easy, 30-minute casserole. Let’s face it, you certainly can’t do that in a cramped hotel room.
Hotel rooms are expensive and don’t compare with the value and money-saving elements of a vacation rental. From large verandas to entertain and dine to game rooms and other amenities, vacation rentals provide much more than a hotel room. Better still, we have special deals and discounts on Isle of Palms vacation rentals in every price range in a variety of settings on the island.
