This is a great time to be staying in a luxury house on Isle of Palms.

First off, a couple quick follow ups.  This past Tuesday was the first loggerhead turtle release of the season (see this BLOG), and boy was it a cool one.  Officials estimate more than 2,000 people showed up to wish the five turtles well as they returned to the surf.   As the aquarium team unloaded each one, little children help up banners showing the name of the soon-to-be-freed turtle.  Each one was a bit bigger than the last… until by the time they got to the last boy, Reese, it took four and eventually five people to carry the 200-pound loggerhead all the way past the cheering crowd to the ocean.

They did a neat cover story in the Post & Courier, where they featured one of the loggerheads, Boyles, who was basically blind when they brought him in.  One of the loyal turtle hospital staff lovingly nursed him back to health until he was well enough to return to the wild.  Read all about it here:

I’ve been to some of these turtle releases before, and they are such a thrill.  I’ll never forget a while back, talking to some folks standing next to us.  They had come all the way from AUSTRALIA just to witness the release of these majestic creatures.  So count this all another cool reason to stay in one of our beach rentals Charleston.  Your luxury house on Isle of Palms is just steps from a global draw!

As I mentioned in this BLOG, you can check out the Shaggin’ on the Cooper series, cranking up tomorrow night at Memorial Waterfront Park under the Ravenel Bridge on the Mount Pleasant side.  It’s convenient to all our SC vacation rentals, whether you’re in one of our Isle of Palms luxury rentals or a Folly Beach house Charleston.

And earlier in the day, there’s a fun new outdoor music event taking place on the Isle itself, right near our Isle of Palms vacation rentals.  It’s Music in the Park, and here are the particulars….

  • Saturday, May 14th from 1:00 p.m. till 4:00 p.m.
  • Live music by….
  • Conveniently located in the middle of the island under the pavilion at the Recreation Center –  #24 – 28th Avenue, Isle of Palms;
  • Local food trucks will be on hand to provide refreshment and vittles;
  • You’re encouraged to bring a blanket or beach chairs to enjoy the afternoon, just down the street from many of our rental homes South Carolina.

There’s nothing like a little live music and some good local food to set a nice mood.

If you have kids staying in your Charleston beach house, the IOP Rec Center also has an awesome playground right near the pavilion (as well as soccer, tennis and baseball fields), so the kids can play while you enjoy the music.

So keep an eye out for turtles (remember “Lights out for Loggerheads”)… enjoy some music and dancing this weekend, and when you are looking for beach house rentals Charleston SC, call EP.  Our luxury beach house rentals SC are the best around.

All best,
