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!

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Coastal Palms is a wonderful cottage on a beautiful property. Janis and Larry are perfect hosts. We were a party of 5 adults in town for bridal shower weekend. The beds are comfortable, rooms are spacious and gorgeous, immaculate and well appointed with everything you need. The grounds are incredible. Larry took time out to give us a tour of his vintage automobile collection and Janis's gardens are lovely. The cottage is handicapped accessible and while not needed the entry ramp and walk in shower were helpful for the elders in our group. We will definitely return!

Great place and had an absolute wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

Janis and Larry were very gracious hosts during our stay! We couldn't have asked for anything more. The pictures do NOT do this place justice. Even more beautiful in person! Close enough to anything you want to do. Just a short drive to the beaches, restaurants, downtown Charleston, etc. Very peaceful here which was exactly what we were looking for.

Beautiful very well maintained, peaceful resort.

  • 5 of 5

Janis and Larry have gone above and beyond to provide a beautiful home for their guests. The house and property are beautifully maintained. They even provide dog bowls, and such for your pet. The dog toys were so nice, and my spots are still enjoying them. We loved the kayaks and crab cage, caught a few Blue Craps. Janis and Larry are both very friendly and you can interact with them as little or as much as your prefer. Everything was well maintained, and super clean. This place is so peaceful and relaxing, plus close enough to Charleston, Folly Beach, Beachwalker Beach (dog friendly), Bohikit Marina, and Angel Oak. Saw Mama deer and her two fawns out by the road and Buster. This is an A++ property.

Loved our visit to John's Island

  • 5 of 5

Loved, loved, loved our stay at Coastal Palms! This is one of loveliest places we have ever stayed through VRBO. The cottage has everything you can possibly need and the outdoor areas are wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed being able to spend the evenings outdoors at the cottage (we even successfully used the outdoor pizza oven) and being close enough the drive to Charleston, Kiawah Island, and Folly Beach for dinner or drinks a couple of evenings as well. We hope we can get back to stay again in the future!

Great place close to everything

  • 5 of 5

My little family of four stayed here for five days and loved it. The house was spacious and the owners were a joy to deal with. The classic cars on site were amazing! The house is off the beaten path, but only a 20 minute drive into Charleston. If you want to get away from the noise of the city and enjoy the sounds of nature then definitely check this property out.

Oh, and the owners had dog toys and treats ready for our pups. You don't get that at many other places.

We would definitely stay here again!
