Vacationing on Isle of Palms is more than just Front Beach and the main stretch of Palm Blvd. Wander a few rows back and you'll find yourself in a lush paradise surrounded by trees and wildlife. If you're looking to get away from the crowds and the noise, we have just the thing! This week we're featuring homes that will almost make you feel like you're in an entirely different place. Enjoy a quiet, serene getaway at any of these hidden gems!
This home on Forest Trail is the best combination of great amenities + a quiet vacation! Here you'll be closer to the Intracoastal Waterway than the beach, but the island is so narrow that you're never too far from the ocean! The kitchen has been beautifully updated with marble countertops and modern appliances, and the home sleeps up to ten people. It even features a spacious backyard with a private pool and a fire pit!
If you're looking to get out on the water instead of sitting in the sand, this home on Frank Sottile Lane is for you! Here you'll be just one block away from the Isle of Palms Marina, where you can rent kayaks and paddleboards (Coastal Expeditions,) take a tour to Capers Island (Barrier Island Eco Tours,) or go out on a fishing charter! After a fun-filled day on the water you can come back to this home that sleeps up to 12 people, and is the perfect place to entertain larger groups!
If the words "beach cottage" and lagoon views are what you're looking for, then the homes on Twin Oaks Lane have all you want and more! Located in Wild Dunes Resort, Twin Oaks Lane is just a short walk to the beach, yet situated among rows of trees, the lagoon, and golf course giving you a peaceful vacation experience. This home sleeps up to 8 people, and features an open floor plan with beautiful hardwood flooring, a flat-screen TV with streaming capabilities, and a screened in porch to enjoy the views!
If you're looking to stay in Wild Dunes and want a larger home, but not necessarily oceanfront, try Back Bay Drive 5827. This home is about 2000 sqft., sleeps up to 10 people, and has a two-car garage, so it's a great option for larger families! Here you'll also be close to the golf course, and right on the bike trail so you can easily explore the rest of the resort community or get to the beach quickly!
Need to be closer to the heart of the Island, but still want that quiet and peaceful vacation experience? This is the home for you! 21st Ave. 37 sleeps up to 8 people, and gives you the best of both a classic beach cottage and an updated interior. The main living area is very open and has plenty of room for the family, and has a spacious deck in the backyard for outdoor entertaining. Best yet, this home is also pet-friendly, so you don't have to leave your pup behind!
