There's simply nothing else like it in Charleston!
300 yards down a private road and you're in the middle of the striking marsh. Just you, dolphins, birds, the occasional kayaker...and of course this big sailing yacht.
The three well-appointed cabins, two bathrooms, a living area, and a modern galley, provide a comfortable stay, to be sure....but who's staying inside when you can spend time on the enormous dock - calming with a good book, grilling out, swimming with the dolphins, paddleboarding, kayaking, or even fishing one of the best spots in town!
This Blue Water Yacht spent most of its life sailing between California and Alaska, although she's been around the world twice. Her classic teak woodwork, comfortable layout, and modern amenities make for the ideal stationary hideaway on the water.
Oh...did I mention you get to name her? That's right, we've painted the back of her hull with chalkboard paint, and we provide the chalk. So have a little fun and come up with a cool name!
The Yacht is on a very secluded dock just off the Folly River. This heaven is all yours for your entire stay. You can relax in the hammock or sit at the picnic table on the huge pierhead overlooking the marsh. You can take one of the kayaks (we have 3 singles and 1 double) and paddle through the marsh exploring, go swimming, or try your luck fishing or crabbing from the dock. You can also savor a beautiful sunrise and sunset - relax in the chairs on the dock, or up on the pierhead where you will always find a cool breeze.
There are other places you can stay while you're in Charleston, but none of them are like this. You will be staying three football fields away from the nearest home. Just a mile from a grocery store, liquor store, and even a Chinese place - but you won't even think about that stuff, because you're in the middle of a gorgeous marsh appreciating the outdoor adventure you always dreamed about.
It is definitely fine to invite guests to the dock to hang out while you're here. However, it is not fine to have a big event. You are also not allowed to just add additional people (over the 5 people you can book) to stay overnight unless you check with us in advance. You are welcome to trailer your personal boat down and put it in the water next to the dock (we have a ramp) then dock it on the same dock if you like. That makes it pretty simple to get up in the morning and go fishing. :)
We have spent over two years building this paradise on the water. We like to think we've created a really unique place for people to relax and appreciate nature - and judging from the reviews, the people who have spent time with us agree!

Getting the best vacation rental experience:
Finding the best rental value:
- The earlier you can book a vacation home, the better your selection will be. The best vacation rentals are booked very early. Reserving your vacation rental up to 12 months before your vacation dates is recommended. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years Eve are excellent times to search for and reserve your rental home.
- Reserve your Charleston area vacation home in the Spring or Fall to enjoy beautiful weather while saving money and avoiding crowded roads, restaurants, and activities. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a Charleston area vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday on the coast? Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years are great times to gather with family and friends at the beach.
- Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property owner or host if your group qualifies for a discount.
- Booking websites typically offer customers an option to obtain vacation insurance protection. Trip insurance, which normally costs between 1% - 5% of the base reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for missed vacation time as a result of personal medical-related emergencies or weather disasters, as well as hurricane evacuation costs, such as an unexpected hotel stay or extra fuel expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your host for additional information.
- Often, rental management companies and vacation rental houses supply Charleston area area visitors guide magazines which often include money-saving deals, either offered independently by local businesses, or through a partnership between the property management company and the business itself. You can also find Charleston area visitors guide and coupon books at local shops and grocery stores.
Choosing and booking your prefect Charleston area rental home:
- Start by having your family decide on a vacation week and a max budget.
- Determine how many beds and what type of bedroom configuration your family requires. 60' Sailing Yacht on a Private Dock has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our vacation rental search.
- Precise descriptions of bedrooms and bed types is often available on booking pages. If they are not listed, reach out to the property management company before booking your rental. Note that most properties list the max. guest capacity, which oftentimes includes pull out couches in living rooms.
- Some properties allow pets, but others do not. Allowable types of dog or cat, weight and breeds may be restricted, and added costs may apply. Ask the host about allowable pet guidelines before booking.
- Are you looking for unique amenities? Most websites include search filters for amenities. Amenity filters help you quickly remove less-optimal properties.
- Appropriate accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for those with limited mobility. Confirm all necessary amenities are available before reserving a rental.
Have a great stay:
- Be sure you get the host's contact number and check in/check out procedures for your rental home.
- Ask questions. You may want instructions for a garage door opener, stereo or coffee maker. Contact your property manager. They are there to help! A brief text message can prevent many concerns.
- Protect the rental owner (and your things!) by locking the property when you are away, just like you would back home.
- During arrival, make note of any issues with the rental property and immediately alert the owner. Keep records of all coorespondence.
- Respecting quiet hours and parking regulations can make a stay significantly more pleasurable. Be a good neighbor. You will increase your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors are often a fantastic source for finding the best local beaches and restaurants.
- Don't forget to... Ask a local! Local residents can frequently help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to find the fresh catch of the day, have a great night out, or the best spots for shopping?
- Double-check every room of the rental property to confirm that you've packed all personal items at check-out. Remember to check closets, dressers, garages, and bathrooms for hidden belongings. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
- Please make sure to walk through the property a final time and scan for any damage. We recommend inspecting the property with the host whenever possible. If the host isn't available, remember to take video of the property to record its condition at check-out.
- After your trip, leave a review! Property managers rely on good reviews to propel new reservations. They'll be much obliged for your feedback. Alternatively, if something went wrong, other families will appreciate that you share your review and help them have the best future vacation. Please be fair with your feedback If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the property manager had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded quickly to solve it.
