We decided to make it a week long family outing. This house was absolutely breathtaking. Very clean, large, spacious, plenty of closet space. Only 2 short blocks to the beach front access. Everyone had a fantastic time and will definately look to come back. If you are out looking for wonderful seafood Crosby's is down the street not too far you can get the fresh seafood right off the boat there. If you are looking for the best crabcakes check out BLU at the Holiday Inn. The shops are really cute and the people are very friendly around town. Only minutes from the Morris Island Lighthouse (if you go at the right time you can see lots of dolphins as well as the blue crabs). It was an experience my children will never forget. Minutes to Charleston and not far away from Sullivan Island / Isle of the Palms.
