When you’re here staying in a Charleston beach house, food is a big part of the equation.

Lucky for you and the friends and family staying in your beach house Charleston, you have quite a choice in that department.

You’ll find an abundance of grocery shopping options near our beach house rentals Charleston SC.   Our Isle of Palms vacation rentals are located near a ridiculous array of great places to stock your fridge and pantry.  Between your luxury house on Isle of Palms and downtown Charleston, you’ll pass multiple Harris-Teeters, Publix, Bi-Los, Wal-Mart, Trader Joe’s, Aldi and Whole Foods.  Later this summer, they’ll also be adding a brand new Costco east of the Cooper River (whoooo hoooo!).

Stocking your Charleston beach house for the week is quite a pastime.  We locals can pick out vacation renters from a distance in the grocery store.  Just look for the grocery cart piled high with thick steaks, adult beverages, sunscreen, breakfast cereals.  Keep an eye peeled for multiple family members throwing things in to the growing heap destined to make its way into the kitchen of one of our SC vacation rentals.

Sometimes the eyes are bigger than the stomach.  This coming Saturday, May 12th, is your chance to redeem the surplus.  It’s the date of the 26th annual food drive sponsored by the United States Postal Service, which takes place the second Saturday each May.  It’s part of their STAMP OUT HUNGER food drive benefiting local food banks.

When you are checking out of one of our beach rentals Charleston, if you find that you have any unopened nonperishable food, just put it in a bag next to the mailbox of your Charleston beach house.  The postal carrier will pick it up and help deliver it to those in need.

When the folks in your Charleston beach house are hungry and no one feels like cooking, then eat out.  Fortunately all our luxury beach house rentals SC are near some of the best restaurants in the country.

As I covered in a couple previous blogs (this one and this one), a couple Charleston foodies were up for prestigious James Beard Awards.’

Well, they just had the awards ceremony and Chicago, and guess what.  They both won.  Congratulations Rodney Scott for being named Best Chef: Southeast, and rare accolade for barbecue purveyors.  And congrats to Mike Lata’s FIG for having the best wine program.

Here’s more from the Post and Courier.  And this from Live 5 News.

So if you have any food left over at  the end of your week in a Charleston beach house, please donate it for a good cause.  And when you are looking for rental homes South Carolina, namely Isle of Palms luxury rentals, be sure to call EP.
