About James Parker

We are local family that enjoy the beach and outdoors. We have a 11 year old and an 14 year old so the home has plenty of kids items. There is a baby crib, high chair, books, games, some beach toys, and generally kid friendly. We purchased this home in 2001 and it has many great memories of raising our first born here. We love the friendly and close nit neighborhood and visit the home whenever there are openings.

James Parker purchased this house in 2001

Why James Parker chose Isle of Palms

A long time ago we came across an article in a magazine that talked about Isle of Palms being one of the best places to raise children so after having a wonderful visit- we decided to buy our first home here!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed in our beach cottage and did more work this last week. We are happy to say that we now have a new stainless steel refrigerator, stove, and dishwasher in the kitchen. My husband put a new HDTV in the kitchen while I put fresh new linens in the kitchen cabinets. He threw away some of the older gaming items and videos and replaced with newer electronics. We fixed the handle that was missing from one the trundle beds a well as put a heavy duty curtain rod in the sunroom. By staying here we have found some of the smaller items that needed to be repaired. Somethings looked ok, but then when you actually used them they needed to be repaired or replaced. An example was the can opener looked fine, but then didn't work good so I replaced it. My huband also replaced the playset swings as they were started to get rusty (salt air is rough on items outdoors). He also deleted some older pictures and will be putting up some new ones soon.

needs cleaning up

  • 2 of 5

When we arrived the A/C was not working and so we called and no one came until the following night. So we tried to open windows but only a few had screens and some didn't open at all. There were no ceiling fans in any of the rooms. So we had no air for the first night. The next day we had to use the leaf blower to clean off the porch off the kitchen because of all the foliage falling from all the trees, but in a hour there was just as much as before. The grill was a joke the pool table was falling apart, the air hockey table didn't work properly. They need to take new pictures because there is no dart board and there is only one heater by the pool and that doesn't have atop on it. there is an open hole where the other one was and they put a big flower pot upside down over it. There was also no serving bowls, or platters. The pool was a mess with all the foliage that kept falling from the trees, and on to you while trying to keep it from going in your drink the same was true of the porch off the kitchen we tried to have some cheese and crackers and glasses of wine but we had to cover everything because the foliage kept falling off the trees. Need to trim back the tree.

So, no we will not be staying there again.

This place was big enough for the family however was not as clean as expected when arriving. Also no directions on how to work anything including the pool heat, gas fire pit etc. the grill was a joke. It shows there are 2 there is only one park type grill. The outside and the pool were so filthy when we arrived that we had to chase down the owner to get someone there to clean it. The heater for the pool consistently broke down and half the time it wasn’t even heated yet the owner decided to charge us an outrageous amount to heat the pool for maybe 2 days of of the 7. I would not use this place again unfortunately.

Property has all a family would want for a beach getaway...

  • 4 of 5

Owner is very conscientious about ensuring that everything is to your liking and the maintenance staff visit numerous times a week to take care of the pool, property etc.

Very quiet neighborhood with a lot of great friendly neighbors make the rental a very enjoyable experience.

End of the Year experience

  • 5 of 5

Each year I try to spend at least a week at my home to understand what the complaints and issues are that may arise from year to year, even though I only live a couple of streets away. You can walk by a sink a thousand times, but until you have turned it on and off to brush your teeth you won’t catch the small minor issues that it may have. During my stay this week, I used the hall shower. The issue of “not enough hot water” in this shower turned out to be that the last repair switched the hot and cold water. This meant that if you wanted hot water you had to turn on the cold and vice-versa. This issue was actually repaired before my arrival, but I took a hot shower in that bathroom just to make sure. The kitchen stools were recently recovered to freshen them up and the sofas were also steam cleaned. I was happy to be able to meet with the painting contractor, the handyman to fix a few things, and an outdoor living specialist to recommend some exterior upgrades. I had a great week and it was nice to fix some of the maintenance issues during my stay..

We really enjoyed our stay last week. This property is fantastic.

  • 5 of 5

Even though we didn’t have children or pets with us, the private fenced backyard/pool area and game room would be perfect for families with fur babies. We really enjoyed our stay. The golf cart was a big hit. Beach access was a 2 minute ride. The community was peaceful and quite. The home had plenty of space, towels and linens. We had everything we needed. Thanks again for a wonderful vacation!
