About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Cozy, quiet, newly remodeled home with a private backyard for relaxing in the hammock while you listen to the sound of the ocean. We are across the street from the ocean and have private beach access with a two-story tiki hut for shade or watching dolphins from an elevated view.

The backyard is fully fenced for pets. We also have pet towels, beds, bowls, toys and crates, to welcome the furry members of your family. Size and number of pets is not an issue. The whole family is welcome.

One mile down the road is a livelier beach with restaurants, surf rentals and music. Dogs are allowed on one end of this beach and surfers are on the far end of this beach. Walton Rocks is a more secluded dog beach and off-leash beach which offers scooper bags, water and restrooms.

The river snuggles up to the other side of Beach Club Colony where there is a boat ramp for guests and residents. Lower in your boat or kayak (rentals available on the island). Explore the river while you watch native birds, turtles and small animals as you glide along the waterway.

The home is fully furnished with linens, pillows, cookware, reading material, as well as internet, games, cable TV and DVD movies.

Bike along the nature preserves that dot the island and watch the fiddler crabs scurry.

For handicapped vacationers: Shower and toilet chairs available on request

This home is half of a duplex. It is soundproof from our snowbird neighbor and the privacy fence encloses just our yard.

25% deposit is required to reserve.

About Jan

My husband and I love the beach and enjoy owning this home. We like to stay here and wake up 'at the beach'. Although we're only 30 minutes away, it's a different feeling to wake up at the ocean than to commute here. It gives us that 'island feeling' when we stay here and relax. It's also nice to walk the dog at night and just bop across the street to be with the waves and watch the moonlight on the ocean. sigh.

We do animal rescue and love to bring our dog here along with the foster dogs. We let everyone run their feet off, playing with the waves and enjoying the dog beaches. It's so laid back for them and us to swim in the water, bake in the sun and then lay out in the backyard while we BBQ on the grill. We love our days here!!!

Jan purchased this house in 2005

Why Jan chose Beach Club Colony

We don't like being separated from our dogs. Sometimes, if I'm away from them, I have to accost strangers on the street to pet their dog and get my "fur-fix". We thought perhaps others would like to bring ALL family members on vacation, so created this pet-friendly environment for them.

What makes this house unique

Bringing your pet on vacation!! Smelling the salt air and hearing the waves even while relaxing in the backyard.

Cozy house across from the Beach

  • 4 of 5

Very nice cozy duplex with 4 bdr and 2 baths with a yard for your 4 legged friends. Home comes with practically everything you need, from chairs and umbrellas to use on the beach. The yard is fence in and provides privacy for those who like to grill on the property. Access to the beach is provided by a private entrance with a two story Tiki hut on beach. You can walk to the beach, 5 minute walk or take your vehicle through the private entrance, you can leave your vehicle with a peace of mind because is a fence in area. The walk to beach is less than 100 yards from the home and it's like renting a home on the beach without $$$$ cost.

Several good restaurant are within minutes, Shuckers is specially good and soft on the wallet. You have several more good restaurant across on the mainland that are also easy on the wallet.

For the dog lovers, pets are allowed on the property, 8-). Can't leave my pooch behind, they like the beach as much as my spouse and I do. There's a beach 4 miles north before the power plant were dogs are aloud to run on the beach. Also, please be considerable to others and pick up your dog waste, this keeps the beach open to us.

My thanks to Jan for being a gracious hostess.

Terrific beach cottage

  • 4 of 5

Very clean! The bed was amazingly comfortable. My husband, our “travel” dog, and I used this cute home as a base to test the region for potential retirement location. The area isn’t for us but we would stay here again. There is plenty of room for many more (3 additional bedrooms) and every necessity you can think of! The neighbors were super friendly and the beach access was quick and easy. We were disappointed that the beach was covered in seaweed, literally knee deep in some locations. I grew up on a SC beach and then lived on a TX beach so know that this just happens from time to time but wish it was clean when we were there. All in all, a great stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you Liz for a very nice review. We're glad that you enjoyed your stay. If this happens again that there is sea weed on the beach, there is a beach called Bathtub Beach that has a reef surrounding it. Not much weeds or waves make it to that beach. Sorry that I didn't know (I didn't go to the beach this past weekend) or I would have told you sooner. warm regards, Jan

Pet friendly beach cottage within walking distance to private tiki hut

  • 5 of 5

Spent the month of March at Jan's beach cottage. Everything you would need is provided. Dog beds, beach chairs, towels and umbrella. Plenty of room in fenced in yard for our 2 greyhounds to stretch their legs. Backyard also has large outdoor table, grill and hammock. Kitchen is completely stocked and the house can easily accommodate a family of 6. The community also has it's own dog park and private tiki hut to enjoy the beach & ocean. If you want to enjoy Jensen Beach/Hutchinson Island, we highly recommend Jan's cottage at Beach Club Colony
