Feel a piece of history in this delightfully maintained townhome on Sullivan's Island - one of six historic luxury residences in the Bachelor Officers' Quarters property on Station 18. This building constructed in 1900 is just a stone's throw from the beach and the famed Sullivan's Island lighthouse. Located on one of the Island's oldest lanes and shaded by live oaks, The Officer's Quarters is one of the few historic condominium structures in the low country.
This 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath property is an exceptional opportunity to be within one block of the ocean and also to appreciate a pool with the other units (not used very often!). The private pool is surrounded by a stone patio, outdoor furnishings for sunbathing, community grille, gas lamps and a landscaped lawn fenced for privacy.
Station 18 is also within painless walking distance to parks with tennis and basketball courts and playgrounds; the business district with post office, eateries, ice cream and shopping; Ft. Moultrie; churches; and more.
MAIN LEVEL -From the grandiose southern porch, walk up to the main level where you'll savor a completely outfitted galley kitchen with a dining area, a comfortable sitting area with a 60-inch flat screen TV and a half-bath, and a master bedroom with a master bathroom that has a whirlpool tub and cavernous walk-in shower. The main sitting area and the master bedroom open to a terrific balcony with a sitting area and dining table. Watch the sun rise over the ocean in the morning and set behind the marsh in the afternoon.
The main living space also contains the washer/dryer and storage.
UPSTAIRS – Walk upstairs to enjoy two bedrooms with a full and a queen-sized bed and a full bathroom. This area is great for additional guests, to load the kids into (there is a TV, a futon, and additional seats), or to make your office if working remotely (there is a worktable, additional monitor and great wifi).
This home is pet friendly. Dogs are considered with a $400 pet fee (per pet), applicable pet policy signed, and flea proof records received prior to arrival. Dog must be approved by Carroll Realty. Absolutely no cats or other animals are allowed. Any damages caused by the pet will be charged to the pet owner, and not paid by the pet fee.
Sullivan's Island requires a minimum 29-nighttime stay. Pack your bags and enjoy an extended vacation, even if having to work from home! The owner has equipped the place with many extras and we will provide all the essentials you need to be more than comfortable for a long and calming stay.
ALL BED LINENS, KITCHEN TOWELS, AND BATH TOWEL SETS ARE PROVIDED FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE!! You will only need to bring or plan to rent beach towels, chairs, bicycles, umbrellas, etc. (the owner has many of these items available but it can't be guaranteed). Also supplied is a "starter set" of toiletries such as toilet paper, bath & dish soaps, paper towels, etc. but please do keep in mind you will most likely need to purchase these items after your initial arrival.

Rental property booking tips and tricks:
When to visit & When to reserve a Sullivan's Island rental home:
- Summertime is the most expensive season in coastal SC. Booking in Fall or Spring months is our favorite way to save money on your vacation. Rental rates are lower, and you'll find a larger selection of acceptable properties. Many vacationers use this method to reserve larger homes, or to book a beach front vacation rental that would otherwise be unavailable or unaffordable during the Summer.
- The sooner your group can book a vacation home, the easier your search will be. The most desirable rental properties are reserved early. Reserving your vacation property up to 12 months before your travel dates is recommended. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years Eve are excellent times to search for and reserve your vacation rental.
- Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property manager or host if your family qualifies for a price reduction or discount.
- Property managers frequently offer guests an option to add trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which normally costs between 1% - 5% of the base reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for days missed as a result of medical-related catastrophes or weather disasters, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected hotel or extra fuel expenses. Trip insurance might be a a welcome relief if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for details.
- Find a copy of your local Sullivan's Island visitors guide magazine upon checking in. If your rental property doesn't have a copy, you can find them at local shops and visitor centers. In addition to great information, visitor guides contain discounts for nearby tours and attractions.
Narrow your Search:
- Choose dates and max budget.
- Decide how many beds and the configuration you need. Historic Captain's Quarters on Sullivan's! Unique Opportunity to Vacation in a Piece of History! has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
- Precise details about bedrooms and bed counts is regularly accessible on booking pages. If not, reach out to the property management company before reserving the rental. Remember that most listings specify the max. guest capacity, which typically includes pull out couches in living rooms.
- Visiting for a specific event? Use a map search to browse nearby rentals.
- Suitable accessibility can make or ruin a vacation for guests with disabilities. Confirm all required amenities are included before reserving a rental.
- If your family is traveling with pets, you must book a pet-friendly property. Ask for information on breed, weight, and type restrictions. Note that some hosts charge pet deposits and fees.
- Review arrival and departure procedures before traveling. Save the instructions to your smartphone, and take a printed backup.
- Document any damages to the rental upon arrival, and immediately send them to the owner. We specifically recommend e-mails and text messages, as they usually contain built-in time stamps that can be very helpful if damages are attributed to your stay.
- Ask questions. You may want instructions for a garage door opener, intercom or coffee maker. Contact your owner. They are there to help! A brief call can prevent quite a few problems.
- Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like unpleasant visitors bothering your life at home. Practice the golden rule for best judgement. If they like you, locals might even recommend great local food and attractions you would have never otherwise known about!
- Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Neighbors can often help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to go for the best drinks, have a great night out, or the best spots for crabbing?
- Lock your rental property while you are gone! Don't let burglars spoil your vacation.
- Just before checking out, complete a walk-through to confirm you didn't leave anything behind. Make sure to check closets, dressers, garages, and bathrooms for hidden belongings. Clean the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
- Walk through the rental a final time and keep an eye out for damage. We recommend inspecting the property with the host whenever you can. If the host is not available, take video and pictures of the property to record its condition.
- After your trip, leave a review! Hosts rely on excellent ratings to propel new bookings. They'll be thankful for your feedback. Alternatively, if something wasn't as described, other vacationing families will be thankful you shared your experience and help them have the best future vacation. Remember to be objective. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the owner had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded reasonably to fix it.
