Property type cottage

Overview

About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-16)

Sit on the back veranda and feel your stresses ebb away with the changing tide while enjoying the beautiful views of the Broad River. Launch a kayak from the backyard and experience the picturesque low country tidal marshes and all of the birds and wildlife that call it home. You may even come across a dolphin or two!

The cottage is located within the Palm Key Nature Getaway, a private 350-acre island that hugs the beautiful Broad River. Majestic Live Oaks are scattered throughout the property. Hawks, egrets, ibis, wood storks, herons and eagles are forever present in the skies and marsh. Enjoy the sound of silence.

This four-bedroom cottage features 8 queen-sized beds – 2 beds per bedroom. Each bedroom has its very own en-suite bathroom. Every bedroom also has private access to the back porch or second level deck where you will not want to miss the stunning sun rises that greet you every morning -- worth getting up for! The kitchen is fully equipped for preparing meals and there are two dining room tables to comfortably seat you and your guests.

The cottage is the perfect getaway to reconnect with family and friends without any of the modern day distractions, yet with all of the modern-day amenities. Read a book, play a game or put together a jigsaw puzzle up in the open loft area. Enjoy the sun on the upper deck, or relax in the shade on the front porch or back veranda. Grab a bamboo pole and try your luck fishing in the freshwater pond on the resort property. Go bird watching on the resort’s nature trails.

There are numerous kayaking trips that can be arranged for exploring the South Carolina’s low-country black water rivers and tidal marshes. It is also a short drive to Historic Beaufort, Savannah, Charleston, Hilton Head, and one of the Nation’s finest beaches at Hunting Island State Park.

The house is located about 25 minutes from Parris Island. Many families have stayed here for their Marine's graduation weekend.

About Steve Trischman

We are a family that enjoys spending time with each other and friends. We love the outdoors, but we also appreciate comfortable surroundings. Here at Palm Key we can experience the outdoors, each other, and a comfortable, homey place to stay.

Steve Trischman purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Steve Trischman chose South Carolina

We actually rented a cottage at Palm Key to spend time with my brother's family that owned a cottage at Palm Key. We weren't expecting to enjoy it as much so actually rented a house on Fripp Island for a week after our stay at Palm Key. Boy were we wrong! We ended up loving Palm Key so much that we drove back from Fripp Island several times and by the end of the week had decided to design and build our cottage at Palm Key.

What makes this cottage unique

It truly is our 'Escape'. We come to Palm Key to unwind and get away from everything. It is truly the most serene, stressfree environment we have come across. And the sounds and the changing scenery of the marsh are like no other. Kayaks are available for our guests to use through Palm Key and when it is nearing high-tide you can literally put in out the back of the cottage.

The BEST VRBO we have ever stayed in

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly as described. Well situated on the marsh with a beautiful view. All rooms and kitchen very clean. The kitchen was generously stocked with appliances, utensils, and even some paper products. It is a super benefit that towels and linens are included - a big space saver for our short trip to not have to pack those things. My family and I loved staying here. It is maybe 35 minutes to Parris Island and really worked for us. Thank you for making your home available to new US marine families!!!

LOVED IT!!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was 6/8-12/17, we really enjoyed the house. The supplies were plentiful and the house was very roomy. Us city girls were a little scared of the ground crabs (lol). I would definitely stay again if in the area. We stayed here and traveled to Tybee, Savannah, and Charleston. My mom loved fishing in the pond.

Beautiful place and well maintained!

  • 5 of 5

From the first steps inside to the last it was a great place to be. The sunrises were wonderful. It was quiet and serene, but we had enough space that we could all sit around and play games and chat. Plenty of room for meals too! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this home or stay there again!

Very Nice property.

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice property, very well layed out, with plenty of room. All of the amenities of home that we needed. We traveled to our son's graduation from boot camp at Parris Island. The travel time to the base was not bad at all. Thank you
