Why Janis and Larry Williams chose South Carolina

When we first drove up to this property we fell in love with the breathtaking setting, coming down the 1500 foot driveway, under the huge canopy of oaks to the stunning views of the Abbapoola tidal creek! (which means God's running water) . In 2009 we added the picturesque Coastal Palms house to our property and have shared with family and friends . They enjoyed our beautiful retreat so much, we are now offering Coastal Palms Retreat as a vacation rental for others to also enjoy.

What makes this house unique

You are 15 miles to downtown Charleston; 8 miles to Beachwalker Beach and Freshfield shopping which has boutique stores and Harris Teeter. We are 5 minutes to Mullett Hall Equisterian Center. On Saturdays there is a farmers market.. Several fantastic restaurants,like Wild Olive and Fat Hens, LoKal, Crazy Owls. Five star spa at The Sanctuary @Kiawah and the 2012 (2020) PGA Ocean Course @Kiawah. Boat rentals, jet ski rentals, dolphin cruises, sunset cruises, horseback riding ...all only minutes away!

For horse lovers, we are 4 miles from the Mullet Hall Equestrian Center!

I FOUND THE PERFECT PARADISE

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from my get-away and guess what, I found the perfect paradise!!! Check out the pictures and the other reviews on Coastal Palms. I felt like I was staying at a "private spa." This cottage is tucked away and very private. It has EVERYTHING I was looking for. I was on a nature get-away and saw all types of low country wildlife. The deer were especially fun to watch. Blue Herons, pelicans, pileated woodpeckers.....I could go on and on.

The cottage had everything that a person needed and was immaculate. The bathrooms were so "spa like" I couldn't believe it. Every little touch to detail was unbelievable. Janis had placed all types of booklets on places to go and things to do. The outside porches and grounds were so inviting and well maintained. I so enjoyed my walks down to the dock and the sunsets were so picturesque. I only wish I had a longer time to spend there.

Janis and Larry are the epitome of the definition of true "southern hospitality." I would definitely recommend this "Pefect Paradise" for all to experience. I'm already checking my schedule for my return stay at Coastal Palms.

The perfect place for a low country get-away!

  • 5 of 5

My family could not have been happier with our experience at Coastal Palms! The pictures on the website speak for themselves. My husband, 8 year old daughter, her friend and I stayed here this week. The house was spotless and every effort was made by Janis to make the house welcoming and comfortable. The beds were comfortable, and the bathrooms make you feel as if you are in a spa! The towels and pillowcases were so soft - I wish I could buy some for myself!

The walk to the dock was perfect - we saw crabs, oysters, egrets, and the gorgeous marshes you see in the pictures. Buster, the donkey, is a hoot, and full of personality! Larry gave my husband a tour of his amazing car collection. We took Janis' recommendation and went to Bohicket Marina for dinner, then returned home to sit by the fire and the girls roasted marshmallows (everything provided!).

The next day we did some sight-seeing and beaching on Kiawah. Chairs and towels were even waiting for us in the foyer of the house - what a relief!

The proximity of the main house to the guest house are not a concern AT ALL! The house is very private, and there is a beautiful privacy screen surrounded with plants and flowers between the two side porches.

Regarding the check-out procedure, if you have ever rented a house on VRBO, you will understand that stripping sheets, running the dishwasher, and emptying the trash are standard check-out procedures. For our party of four, this literally took about 15 minutes.

Coastal Palms is quite certainly the perfect way to visit Charleston if you have a family. The bedrooms are on opposite sides of the house, it's very well-built and features upgrades galore! The tranquil setting, along with being 15 minutes to Charleston and 10 minutes to a gorgeous beach, make Coastal Palms a place I hope to return to SOON, and I will certainly tell my friends and family to keep Janis and Larry in mind when traveling to the Low Country!

Check it out - you will be thrilled!

Blissful!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage at Coastal Palms is exquisite and very comfortable. It is so well designed and furnished that the overall impression is that of a very spacious home although it really quite compact. It is very user-friendly for anyone needing a little assistance with mobility issues and this feature has been designed to be quite discreet as well as functional.The setting is lovely with views and access to the river and marshes.

The property is very handy for Mullet Hall (equestrian), Bohicket Marina, Freshfields and other points of interest. The hosts, Janis and Larry, are very nice and friendly but will not invade your privacy at all. Visit Larry's on-site classic car museum for a trip down memory lane.

We would definitely return to this rental!

Coastal Palms is beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a lot of time looking for a hotel that could accommodate my friend (who's husband is disabled ) and my dogs, to no avail. I started looking at different rentals and found only about three and Coastal Palms seemed to meet all our needs. We were not disappointed, the cottage had more than enough room and and maneuverability for the chair and was very nicely decorated. Janis and Larry are great host.

We spent a week and are looking forward to going back.
