Charleston Area Vacation Rentals

To enjoy a relaxing coastal getaway complete with pristine beaches and historical ambiance, set your compass for the always entertaining Charleston area of South Carolina.

Guests of Charleston vacation rentals can learn more about the rich history of this area by heading to the Historic District and stopping by a few of the more than 2000 historic buildings. The Joseph Manigault House, a National Historic Landmark, is decorated with its original furnishings and represents neo-classical style, while the Aiken-Rhett House has been essentially untouched since 1858 and provides an excellent picture of antebellum life. Visitors should also be sure to stop by a few of the plantations, such as the Magnolia Plantation and Gardens, along with Drayton Hall, which is the only house to withstand the revolutionary and civil wars intact.

Situated only 20 minutes from Charleston, Isle of Palms is a barrier island where visitors can truly getaway from it all and relax along the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. Guests of Isle of Palms vacation rentals will certainly want to check out the Isle of Palms County Park for a picturesque stroll along the dunes boardwalk, a friendly game of beach volleyball, a cozy family picnic, or a lazy afternoon of soaking up the sun in the soft, sparkling sand.

On the northern tip of Isle of Palms sits Wild Dunes, a quaint, private beachfront community where guests of Wild Dunes vacation rentals can enjoy the great outdoors. The most popular attraction is always the Wild Dunes Golf Course, which features two Tom Fazio-designed courses, the Wild Dunes Links and the Harbor Course, and provides a stiff test of skill and accuracy while taking full advantage of its location along the Atlantic.

Although Seabrook Island is only 30 minutes away from the cultural attractions of Charleston, guests of Seabrook Island vacation rentals need not leave the island to find a wealth of excitement. This private, gated barrier island features three miles of wide sandy beaches, two championship golf courses, tennis courts, kayaking adventures, and numerous other ways to entertain every member of your family.

The closest beach to Charleston and arguably the best beach in the state, Folly Beach offers a calm and relaxed atmosphere that is perfect for an afternoon of swimming in the surf and collecting seashells. Guests of Folly Beach vacation rentals can also stroll to the Morris Island Lighthouse, cast a line from the fishing pier, or simply soak in the breathtaking views from the sand.

Other popular accommodations in the Charleston Area include Mount Pleasant vacation rentals, which are convenient to the Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum, and Edisto Beach vacation rentals, which are ideal for a beachfront getaway near Edisto Beach State Park.

To realize the relaxing Charleston area vacation you always imagined, begin your search for the perfect vacation rental today and enjoy everything this wonderfully diverse region has to offer from your cozy and convenient home away from home.
