Our Isle of Palms vacation rentals are ready to host your getaway to South Carolina’s beautiful sandy beaches. You’ll find tranquility here, set back from the hustle and bustle, while still being within easy reach of Charleston.
The city of Isle of Palms rests on a barrier island of the same name, just 18 miles from Charleston and about 130 miles from Columbia. These long stretches of beach provide a natural habitat for sea turtles—if you’re lucky, you just may catch local licensed professionals assisting these tiny creatures in their journey to the ocean.
There are a number of ways to explore the area around our Isle of Palms beach house rentals and condos. Cruise the streets on a moped, courtesy of Port City Mopeds, as you stop along the boutique shops and ice creameries. In fact, the island is very walkable, and you’ll see many pedestrians, cyclists, and even golf carts roaming the quiet streets.
When it’s time to get in the water, head to Isle of Palms County Park, where you’ll find a grassy patch with a playground, picnic tables, and parking. A short boardwalk connects you to soft sands and warm, gentle waves perfect for splashing or for kids learning to surf. Spend your days building sandcastles, bingeing your newest page turner, or enjoying a homemade picnic whipped up in your Isle of Palms vacation rental.
If you just can’t get enough of that blue ocean, a number of local companies provide fishing charters, boat rentals, and even eco-tours. Whether you’re looking for a romantic sailboat charter at sunset, or an informational family excursion exploring nearby barrier islands, there’s something for every taste.
A trip to adjacent Sullivan’s Island is a must for history buffs, where you can tour Fort Moultrie, which played a role in both the American Revolution and the Civil War. Afterwards, head to the nearby beaches or to Poe’s Tavern, a literary-themed eatery with delicious burgers and craft beers.
Be sure to stop by the seasonal Isle of Palms Farmers’ Market for local produce, baked goods, preserves, and to catch some live entertainment by local musicians. Our Isle of Palms beach rentals and condos feature fully-equipped kitchens, so you can try your hand at a new recipe with local ingredients or fresh-caught seafood.
If you want to pamper yourself you can head to Beach House Spa, located inside a cozy cottage. Treat yourself to a massage, body scrub, or facial—or all three—and feel the worries of everyday life melt away. A visit to nearby Charleston will surround you with even more luxury, from high-end dining to designer clothing stores.
