Why Janis and Larry Williams chose Charleston Area

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!

Awesome low country experience!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great location for a family of 4 or 5. My boys 10 and 12 loved fishing from the pier, shrimping, and crabbing. We also enjoyed the bicycles, kayaks, and roasting marshmallows at the fire-pit. There were many other things to do such as corn hole, horse shoes, basketball, and etc. We just never took the time to do any of them.

However, it is in the country. You will have to drive to get to a store, restaurant, but it is not a bad drive. We drove into Charleston twice (20-30 minute drive, depending on traffic), Beach Walker beach in Kiawah (15-20 minutes, well worth it, beautiful and family oriented).

If driving/commuting to and from attractions is not a problem for you, this is an excellent choice. The house is immaculate and provides your every need, even two beach chairs, and 5-6 beach towels. I highly recommend giving this property a try.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Janis has thought of everything in this wonderful home. Everything was clean and beautiful. We enjoyed using the shrimp net and crab trap and appreciated Janis showing us how to pick up a fighting crab :) We also were happy that we were able to use Lyft or Uber into Charleston as this home provides a very nice private setting!

Absolute Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Coastal Palms Retreat was the perfect choice for our getaway weekend! The amenities were amazing. So many nice little touches! We thoroughly enjoyed the kayaking, basketball court and feeding Buster. Also, so close to the beach we were able to spend the day in Kiawah. We will definitely be back!

Peaceful, tasteful, close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Coastal Palms was WONDERFUL! We rented the cottage for the solar eclipse event and a short tour of Charleston. It was so peaceful, relaxing! Janis and Larry have really covered all the bases for their guests. We really appreciated the thoughtfulness of eclipse glasses being provided for us when we arrived - it's those touches that make a difference between a nice stay and a terrific stay!! The grill came in handy when we realized we were too tired from touring and just wanted to enjoy the quiet and the birds. The decor is tasteful, comfy, and clean! We highly recommend Coastal Palms!
