Bohemian eclectic french shabby chic 600 sq ft beach bungalow situated in a very quiet setting & centrally located to everything on the island. For the beach worshipper: 5 miles from door to toes in sand! For the golfer or business traveler: 800 feet walking distance to Sea Palms Golf Resort & Conference Center. Same neighborhood as the 2017 HGTV house!

The space

This is the NE side of my villa which is my personal living space where I reside and work from home when I'm not out of town. It's a little bigger than my NW suite because it has a full kitchen, so it's more like a 600 sq ft studio apartment where the kitchen, dining and extra guest bed is one great room leading out of front door to a bigger private deck area. It has 1 bedroom with a Tuft&Needle king bed and full insuite bathroom. This suite is best suited for 1-2 adults but can sleep up to 4 adults. Keeping in mind all 4 will share the bathroom that's in the bedroom and the bedroom is partitioned off with a bohemian style thick curtain with mini spirit bells. Definitely a bohemian eclectic type beach bungalow with a peaceful quiet vibe. If you need space for more than 4 adults consider either renting out my NW suite that sleeps up to 5 or renting out both my suites where I can unlock a door between both spaces opening it up into 1000 sq ft 3 bedroom 2 bath beach cottage style villa that sleeps 9 total! I'll be happy to create a specialty tailored rate just for your travel needs! Note: weight limit on the king bed of 2 average size adults (not to exceed 400 lbs max total for two adults on my memory foam mattress). LGBT friendly. Race, Spirituality & Cultural Diversity Friendly. Everyone that is a decent honest person is welcome! Unfortunately, my 1974 boardwalk and doorways are not wheelchair accessible. PET TRAVELERS: due to some pet owners that have dogs with unacceptable dispositions, I'm no longer pet friendly on either suite as of October 2017. Will consider on a case by case basis a very well behaved trained quiet registered service dog/cat and/or ESA animals with proof of documentation letters as well as a pet fee but this must be approved PRIOR to booking and agree to my pet rules.

Other things to note

Please kindly remove shoes upon entering to keep floors and throw rugs and bedding healthy and clean. NO SHOES OR LUGGAGE ON MY BEDS PLEASE! NO PETS. NO SMOKING. No unauthorized guests. No underage drinking! Please leave ceiling fans on to help circulate air flow. Turn off lights when not in use.

This is my private dwelling and also my laundry closet is on this side which is used for my NW suite guest check outs housekeeping, therefore no long term rental is available only short term 1-3 days at a time unless otherwise stated. When I'm living in it, my domesticated traveling Cat is with me. See MY CAT ARGYLE hashtag on various platforms! He's popular! Although no dogs are allowed and I keep it VERY clean and smelling awesome, I do leave my cats toys in a basket and sometimes a few might be scattered about. So if you have allergies to cats then my place might not be for you.

My landscapers come every Friday around 11am

There are a few feral cats living in the area that some kind cat rescue ladies feed and care for. They mind there own business but please do not let them in my home! You are more than welcome to feed them too but don't try to pet them! They are feral cats afraid of people!

There is wildlife amongst the marsh that must be respected. Raccoons, armadillos, possums, birds, alligators, fish, turtles to name a few you may see on the island!

I stayed in Sophie's Place while attending a conference at Sea Palms. It was a great experience. She made me feel welcome and provided me with great coffee, a king size sized bed, and everything that I needed to prepare good food. I stayed in the unit with a kitchen. Harris Teeter is a grocery store nearby that Sophie recommended. It was a great place to get healthy food and drink. A historic British Fort from the 1740s is a short drive away. The National Park Service manages it and it's a really neat thing to see.

Extremely hospitable and makes it very personal. Not far from the beach, pier, or restaurants / shops. Exactly what she describe and even gave me ideas of where to go and things to do!

Sophie User Profile


Je suis Sophie, an Entreprenuer, Spiritual Advisor, Writer & Travel Host. GreenTravelCat is my fun advertising marketing muse for my vacation rentals and my CafeAuthorsAdventures (my partner & I are both authors). It's not a gnome, it's a vintage wooden puppet that you'll see posing in some of my suites and in my travels! Sense of humor required!

I offer 2 short term vacation mini apartment style suites, one side of my little beach cottage villa is my private dwelling when I'm home and a cat lives/travels with me. The other side is connected by one locked door to ensure privacy for both myself and guests without sharing the same space per say. Of course like any apartment one must respect the fact others such as myself, my neighbors and other guests may be on both sides of the walls and keep things free from noise. Quiet time is 10pm-6am. This is a great place to attend your business conference or stay while house hunting, working on a novel or a tranquil weekend getaway to the beach! No monthly long term rental. No smoking. No parties. No illegal activities. No underage drinking. No pets. No unauthorized guests.

I'm very careful to ensure my own comfort as well as that of my guests using my peaceful island retreat thus why I set high requirements of fully completed profiles (like mine for example), clear photos, your itinerary and you telling me a little about yourself and who will be accompanying you.

While no pets are allowed, there are exceptions prior to booking on a case by case basis that you will need to check with me for approval, such as very quiet well mannered ESA and well trained registered service animals. Additional pet fees will apply as well as strict rules of toenails trimmed, animals bathed prior to arrival and no animals on beds! If not an ESA or service animal, I will be more than happy to refer a nearby local island boarding facility.

Please be sure to read my terms, rules and descriptions thoroughly before booking. I'm happy to answer all your questions in advance. Thank you for considering my villa for your travel/business needs.
