Beach Vacation Rentals

With 187 miles of coastline bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, South Carolina beach house rentals ares plentiful. The beaches here offer many sun-soaked activities, like canoeing, fishing, and boating. With all bays, inlets, and islands considered, the coastline measures 2,876 miles, which is the 11th longest among the 50 states.

The State Parks of South Carolina also feature great beaches. Preserved and protected, they are examples of South Carolina’s natural, cultural and recreational resources. These facilities provide a wide range of significant places for visitors to experience, like the 10,000-acre wilderness in the Upcountry, maritime forests along the coast, plantation homes, battlefields and champion fishing lakes, can be found at state parks.

Charleston, South Carolina remains one of the best-preserved cities in America's Old South. Boasting 73 pre-Revolutionary War buildings, 136 from the late 18th century, and more than 600 built before the 1840s Charleston is living history. With its cobblestone streets and horse-drawn carriages, Charleston is a "must visit" on a travelers itinerary. Jasmine and wisteria fragrances fill the air; the aroma of she-crab soup (a local favorite) wafts from sidewalk cafes; and antebellum architecture graces the historic cityscape. More often than not, South Carolina rentals in Charleston are just as beautiful as the surrounding archeitecture! 

Myrtle Beach, famed for its golf courses and seaside attractions, offers the Grand Strand, 60 miles of boating, fishing, surfing, kayaking, scuba diving, parasailing, and windsurfing. In addition to the bordering Atlantic Ocean, the Grand Strand is blessed with wonderful inland waters. These include the Intracoastal Waterway, which runs parallel to the coast from Little River to Socastee, where it merges with the Waccamaw River. Along the way, other rivers and tributaries feed into the waterway, and passage to the ocean is gained through Little River or Winyah Bay. These inlets and rivers provide additional kinds of recreation, including boating, fishing, and leisurely cruises. Cruise boats operate out of Little River, North Myrtle Beach, Myrtle Beach, Conway, Murrells Inlet, and Georgetown. Some of these leisure cruises provide sightseeing trips, and others offer dinner and dancing. Almost all provide enlightening narratives about the region's wildlife, scenic wonders, history, and legends.
