Captain John's Getaway on Sullivan's Island
Welcome to our wonderful beach house located just across a grassy path to the pristine beaches that nip at historic Charleston, South Carolina. This spacious 5 bedroom, 4 bath, 4,000 sq. ft. residence is a gated property that has lovely views and an abundance of amenities, including an elevator! This is an interesting house that has a lot of interesting, eclectic art that we hope you will find refreshing, unique, and a bit off the beaten path.
The first floor great room consists of large living room with queen sleeper down-wrapped sofa, a formal dining area that seats 6, and a professionally-outfitted kitchen with new Dacor appliances, microwave, wine fridge, and an ice maker. The granite kitchen bar seats 7 and opens to the family room that has a fireplace and cable TV. Adjacent is a 3-seasons screened dining porch with a table that seats 8. A small bathroom and an elevator can also be found on the first floor for your convenience.
The main floor master bedroom has a king bed with a top of the line mattress and bedding and access to a private porch. The master ensuite bath features a Jacuzzi tub, a separate shower with dual shower head, his and her vanities, as well as a stackable washer/dryer.
The second floor houses 3 additional bedrooms. An oversized second master with a king poster bed has its own separate bathroom. The large masters on separate floors of this multiple level house ensure separation of space, ideal for families or couples! The third bedroom boasts a Parisian theme with a unique antique king size iron bed with a top of the line mattress and bedding. This room also enjoys access to a screened porch and is connected by a Jack and Jill style bathroom to the fourth bedroom, which is fitted with two oversized twin trundle beds that sleep four in total. All of the bedrooms have quality bedding and mattresses and have access to decks.
The last bedroom is located on the third floor and includes a queen bed and two twin beds. It also has a full bathroom with shower and tub, as well as an office. A private deck leads to an observatory that gives you the best views of both ocean and marsh!
Outside, delight in the large yard and outdoor dining set up, which includes a gas grill. The screened in porch is perfect for al fresco dining, and ceiling fans provide a extra breeze on hot summer days.
This large house is located on the highly coveted and rarely rented south end of Sullivan's Island. Walk across the street to the gorgeous path that takes you 200 yards right to the Atlantic ocean where you will enjoy a private beach experience. While you have privacy on this exclusive part of the island, you also have the advantage of being within walking distance to basketball and tennis courts as well as 5 star restaurants that adorn Sullivan's.
You are just 100 feet from historic Fort Moultrie, which you cannot leave the island without exploring first, of course! There's also a boutique private gym conveniently located right next door to the basketball and tennis courts that are located via a short walk or bicycle ride.
High-energy yet historic downtown Charleston is a 15-minute drive and quite easy to get to. Charleston is unique in that everything is within a 20-30 minute drive--and if you want to experience several beaches besides ours, you can hop over to Hilton Head and Kiawah in less than 2 hours for a quick day trip. Same goes for historic Savannah and Beaufort, except they are even closer. There's something for everyone to do or see in Charleston!
We will even have a few nice surprises for you to start out your stay stress-free. Our goal is for you to show up, kick back, and enjoy the wonderful life of Sullivan's Island!

Wonderful Family Vacation Home
Everything about this home is superb! The owner was extremely accommodating with our dates and personally greeted us upon our arrival. The home was graciously stocked with food, wine, beer, pantry items, breads, treats for the kids and even two pies! There were plenty of bikes for everyone and even a double sized golf cart for easy trips to the beach. We enjoyed family meals on the oversized screened-in porch or in town at many of the local restaurants. The well landscaped yard provided a fun and safe place for the grandkids to play when not on the beach. Every attention to detail was graciously provided by the owner. Definitely a five star review!

Great Stay in a Great House
The owner was very acomodating to our arrival and departure dates and time . The house was well stocked with great wines, beer, food, snacks, other great goodies for us to enjoy all provided by the owners at no charge. House was clean, well maintained and stocked with towels and other needs. The view of the sunset from the Captian look out on the top of the home was amazing. All the bikes and the golf cart were top quality. They even had the fat tire bikes to ride on the beach. Great owners, really wanted to make sure we had everything we needed. The neighborhood restaurants were all great. ”
Paradise at Sullivan's Island!
Our family had a fabulous week staying in this home! The owner was very gracious. she even had some delicious food waiting for us in the refrigerator! Great location on Sullivan’s Island with easy access to the beach and to all the great eateries in “downtown Sullivans”. The house itself was terrific because of the multiple bedrooms on multiple floors making it perfect for great large gatherings, but also creates private space for each grouping of guests. Biking is part of the Sullivan's tradition and what a collection of bikes the owner had ready and available for us in the garage. There is also a crow’s nest perch with table and chairs on the very top that gives you a 360 degree view of downtown Charleston, Ft Sumter, the beach side, the marsh side, and beautiful sunsets. Highly recommend! Joel Murphy, Atlanta, GA”
