9 Best Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Isle of Palms, South Carolina - Updated 2022

airbnb isle of palms

Isle of Palms is an island city on the Atlantic Ocean with bike paths and an oceanfront park. The narrow barrier island is 30 minutes away by car from Charleston. While you’re sunbathing, you might share the beach with nesting sea turtles. Front Beach is an upstanding spot with miles of sandy shores. There are boat charters and fishing trips on an hourly or daily basis at the marina. If you’d rather stay on solid ground, visit recreation centers for tennis, baseball, basketball, and kid-friendly play areas. Outfitters will keep you safe and equipped for parasailing, waterskiing, and wakeboarding, so ask the locals about where to book lessons and equipment rentals. Check out our list of the nine best Airbnb vacation rentals in Isle of Palms, South Carolina.
