A Charleston beach house is near some of the best new restaurants in the country. When you come to one of our rental homes South Carolina, be it a luxury house on Isle of Palms or a Folly Beach house Charleston, chances are you are going to eat out.  After all, you’ve gotta feed the folks staying in your Charleston beach house, and local restaurants abound.

Read all about it from the Post & Courier here. Should you wish to try them out and judge for yourself, they are convenient to all our SC vacation rentals, especially our Isle of Palms luxury rentals.
