About Gus Wakat
I live downtown in Historic Charleston.We designed and built this beach house to enjoy the ocean whether you are inside or on the sand.
Why Gus Wakat chose Isle of Palms
We bought this lot to build on so we were close enough to walk up the beach to eat, shop or play games. But we are far enough away to avoid the crowds where there is public parking.

Great house. Great location.
Wonderful home right on the beach. Family friendly. Love our week there!
Family Beach Week
First impression means a lot and our first impression was not a good one. We found mold and mildew in all of the bathrooms, especially the toilets and in the master bathroom, a huge growth of mold on the wall. We simply had to spray Clorox on these areas and it took care of the problem. The windows of the beautiful view were so cloudy, we had to clean them ourselves. Only then could we enjoy the view. There was grease on the upstairs loft area and it made our feet black. While our family enjoyed our vacation, overall cleanliness of the house was unacceptable, for the price we were paying. The next guests found the house in much better condition than we did. I simply think the owner needs to go behind his cleaning service to make sure they are doing the job right. We tried calling VRBO, and emailing The owner to no avail. Aside from all of these issues, our family enjoyed our vacation.
I am so sorry you had a bad experience with the cleaning company. I wish you had contacted me as I would have had the cleaning company go back out. I also include their contact info in the welcome email and state that if there are any cleaning issues that you can contact them directly as well.
The location, view and lay out of the house were excellent. Well equipped kitchen but there were dirty utensils in the drawers.The grill was awful. The house was not as clean as I might have hoped when we arrived - a moldy shower curtain, door knob on sliding door in upstairs bedroom fell off, clump of hair in silverware drawer. Overall the house seemed utilitarian and needed some TLC, but none of this impacted the wonderful week we spent in this house at the IOP.
Can't get a better view
Great house with incredible views. Highly recommend this house.
Absolutely loved the place, was the perfect home base for our big group.
The big shaded back deck and breeze by the ocean made all the difference in the sweltering heat
Great beachfront property
Ideal location with short walk to restaurants and stores. Far enough from businesses that beachfront is not too crowded. Comfortably worn for beach property. Owner very responsive. Had a great annual beach trip with the girls. Thank you Gus!
