Where to Stay for the Holidays

If you haven't figured out your holiday plans, you're not alone! People from all over are changing up their typical holiday traditions, and heading to the beach instead. From groups of two or three to families of 10 or more, we have rentals for everyone! Take a look at our top recommendations for rentals available this season, and book your stay today!


When you think of Thanksgiving, you're probably picturing a large spread of turkey or ham (or both) and all of the fixin's you can imagine! You're going to need a big kitchen to handle all of that, and these rentals have you covered!

2605 Palm Blvd. is one of the newest additions to the Island Realty rental program, and is a triplex! This unique property allows you to rent just one of the floors/units, or all three as one home! This is going to be a great option for larger families that want to be able to slit up if needed or smaller groups that want to be near the beach and just need one floor! [Pictured: Upstairs]

3106 Palm Blvd. is a 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom home that sits oceanfront with a large and spacious backyard to take in the views! With updated appliances and plenty of seating, this will be the perfect place for the whole family.

Dolphin Row 4 is a private home inside Wild Dunes Resort, making it a quiet island escape! The home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, and is still just a quick walk away from the beach if you want to walk off that Thanksgiving dinner!


For Christmas time, you're most likely looking for a rental that has plenty of living room space, room to set up your tree and presents, and has special amenities to accommodate the whole family. We still have a few properties available, and we've found a home with an elevator, an oceanfront home, and even a pet-friendly one so even the furry friends of the family can join!

Sandcrab Court 11 is a beautiful home in Wild Dunes Resort with a large, open floor plan and living area. Here you'll enjoy amenities such as a large updated kitchen, an elevator, and a rooftop deck!

2408 Palm Blvd. is a beautiful oceanfront home with six bedrooms and six and a half bathrooms! Along with the large kitchen and living area, this home also has three bedrooms with King beds and private bathrooms, as well as two rooms with multiple twin beds/bunk beds, perfect for the kids! This home is built with families in mind, which is perfect for your Christmas getaway.

Palm Court 7 is just a half block from the beach, and is the perfect cozy cottage for your family, the pup included! This home is three bedrooms and two bathrooms, and is a great way to have a smaller home close to the beach, without all of the traffic right in front of your door!

New Year's Eve

New Year's Eve is the perfect opportunity for a quick couple's trip! To ring in the new year right, we've picked out a few condos that are all oceanfront to take in the ocean views!

The Sea Cabins are undoubtedly our most popular condo option on Isle of Palms! They are all one-bedroom, one-bathroom, and this unit is first-floor in the C building. Your view looks straight onto the Sea Cabins beach access, so you're just steps away from strolling along the beach.

Tidewater I 304 is a gorgeously updated condo in Wild Dunes, with stunning elevated views from the screened-in balcony! This is a two-bedroom, two-bathroom oceanfront unit, with elevator access. 

Back over on Front Beach, next door to the Sea Cabins, you'll find 1140 Ocean Blvd.! This complex features mostly three-bedroom units, and we've picked out unit #304 for your New Year's stay! This condo also includes elevator access so it's a great option for those who aren't so fond of stairs, and is a wonderful option for smaller families looking to celebrate the New Year together.
