My mother and father walked the beach on the Isle of Palms when my father was on leave from the European theater in WWII. They found the prettiest spot on the island and marked in with a giant X in the sand. Then they went directly to the Beach Company and bought it...I think they paid $5,000 for it which was an enormous sum at the time. After the war they built what came to be known as a "J.C. Long House." It was a small cinder block house--3 bedrooms, 1 bath, side porch but it suited our young family just fine.
Owner purchased this House in 1948
Why Owner chose Isle of Palms
This property has been in our family since the 1040's. If you've a mind, you can read all about the history of the house in a small volume I wrote entitled, THE ISLAND THEN AND NOW. Amazon has it or you can read the house copy when you arrive.

Perfect family beach house!
We lucked into this wonderful beach house on a last minute trip! It was absolutely wonderful...right on the beach with a huge flat grassy yard to boot! Wonderful layout of the house....has an old school beach house charm but has been updated beautifully! So clean and supplied with everything you could need! The wide beach was perfect for the kids and had great shells and a tide pool! Great trip!
Thank you so much for your kind words. So glad it worked out for your last minute adventure and hope you will come again. People often don’t realize how lovely the island can be in the winter season.
House is even better than the pics. Everything was perfect. Great, great space and wonderful hosts who were very accommodating. Thank you
Thanks Judy, so glad you enjoyed your time at the beach and hope you will come again sometime. All the best, Stanley
We just got back from our stay at this nice beach house. Property was very clean, well appointed, and tasteful. We wanted a beachfront property, and this place certainly delivered! Beautiful short walk across the backyard to the ocean, gorgeous sunrises and lots of enjoyable moments on the nice screened in porch and upstairs balcony overlooking the ocean. Beach was nice and not crowded in the least bit - lots of space and privacy! The house was well-stocked and updated. Very responsive owner and super easy check-in, check-out process. We had 3 cars parked in the driveway and plenty of room for even more. We have a 3 year old, and there were plenty of step stools and kid-sized chairs and tables for him, even a high chair! We also appreciated the multiple places to hose off under the house. Lots of amenities close by. Would love to go back!
Perfect home for a large family gathering! The kitchen was well stocked a roomy. A short walk down the trail to the beautiful beach. The owner was very quick answering any questions we had.
Late summer getaway
Great house for a last minute, unexpected getaway. Got lucky this property was still available. Owner was responsive, location was great and back yard even nicer and more spacious than the photos show. Really well kept property from the house itself to the showers and space beneath the home! Thanks:)
So glad it worked out for you to enjoy those last days of summer. Thanks for your gracious comments.
This was our second visit to Stanley's lovely home. The house is spacious and nicely stocked with pots, pans, spices, etc. The screened-in porch was a great gathering spot for morning coffee and evening games with the whole family. We hope to return to this beautiful spot in the future! 8/2019 Kim from MA
We love having return visitors. So glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you'll come again! All the best,
Ask any of the locals and they will tell you this is the best surfing location on the Isle of Palms!
