Carolina Sunrise on St. Helena Island

Pet-friendly oceanfront home with private beach, fire-pit, & gazebo

Enjoy a peaceful vacation on St. Helena Island, complete with a private beach and stunning sunrises.

Sleeping eight, Carolina Sunrise is the perfect three-bedroom, two-bath waterfront home for your next Sea Islands escape. Guests can drift off to sleep in the king-sized master bedroom, one of the two queen bedrooms, or opt for the comfy sleeper sofa.

The living room features a flat-screen television with a DVD player, Sling TV, plenty of seating, and a sliding glass door allowing access to the back porch. Enjoy preparing meals in the fully-equipped kitchen, and serve your gourmet entrees at the six-person table, with additional seating at the counter. A charcoal grill is also available for your use.

To soak in the beauty of the outdoors, take your dining experience to the spacious back deck and enjoy dinner al-fresco style with gorgeous ocean views. There is also a screened-in gazebo with a dining table which seats four, and just down the back steps you will find a patio with a fire pit. An outdoor shower is provided for your convenience as well.

As the name suggests, this home is perfect for sunrises and a fantastic place to fish and kayak. While the beach in front of the home is not ideal for swimming due to oyster beds, spend your days at Hunting Island State Park with one of the best beaches in the area with a car pass included.

We encourage you to bring your four-legged friend, as dogs are accommodated for an additional fee of $300. No events with a higher number of guests than the occupancy of the house are permitted.

As our gift to you for booking with us, we offer free admission to select Sea Islands and Beaufort attractions. Called the Xplorie Program, our guests will receive one free adult admission ticket, per night stay, to attractions like the Kazoo Factory, the Escape Room and a free kayak rental. It’s our way of saying, “Thanks!”

Please note that guests must be at least 21 years of age to rent this property.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect getaway! My husband and I were looking for the perfect long weekend getaway with our four-legged companion to de-stress, and oh boy, did we find a gem. There was a great mixture of outdoor and indoor living space. The view is unbelievable, and hearing the waves during high tide was just what we were looking for. It's a great spot for a short, 20-minute walk along the beach, multiple times a day, and it felt like you had the place to yourself. While we enjoyed the seclusion and amenities that the house offered, it was still close enough to partake in great local dives and a short trip to Beaufort. Truly hope to come back soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Stay I visited this home in February with my family and we had a relaxing visit. We loved using the firepit and we roasted hot dogs and smores one night. We took several walks along the beach in the evenings as well. We loved the Hunting Island park pass that was included and enjoyed going up to the lighthouse for the great views! The mattress in the master is a foam mattress similar to a Tempur-pedic and was very comfy. Kitchen was well appointed. Would certainly return. We had some beautiful sunrises and even sunsets!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Place If you are looking for a relaxing private home on the intercostal waterway Port Royal Sound, this is place. I have never stayed on such a waterway and it is amazing to see. Hunting Island State Park is just down the road with park passes if you want to go to the Ocean side. Pictures do not do this house justice. It is awesome. I would stay again and recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect location. Wonderful experience. I rented this house for my husband's 40th birthday. It was exactly what we were looking for: a beach house where we could relax with friends for a few days. The house is right on top of the beach and has amazing views from inside the house too. there are so many spots to hangout outside that it really kept things fun. I would definitely go back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely place! We visited Carolina Sunrise for 4 nights in February. It was wonderful! The house was great and the wraparound deck, gazebo and tiled fire pit area were great. The pass for Hunting Island State Park was a huge bonus as we spent time there every day. I would love to return for another visit if life allows!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beachfront Paradise! If your looking for a relaxing home with plenty of outdoor space, a fully stocked kitchen and comfortable beds in the perfect location, Carolina Sunrise fits the bill. Tasteful décor, modern conveniences, and a private beach round out the vacation experience that our family was looking for. Located in a secluded neighborhood yet close to the State Park, restaurants, grocery and family activities. The multi-level decks and gazebo offer the ideal place for outdoor entertainment and relaxation. A wonderful fire-pit and charcoal BBQ provided the opportunity for us to enjoy cooking outdoors and relaxing the evening away by the fire listening to the sounds of the waves. The kids loved the private beach area and spent many hours collecting seashells and trying their hand at catching some local blue crab. Our family highly recommends this property, and Natural Retreats, as the guest service was outstanding, the home sparkling clean, and their attention to detail provided us with the perfect stress-free vacation. TIP: If you are looking for the "best" ever BBQ joint, stop at the Island BBQ Pit along the parkway and enjoy some of the best pulled pork and ribs in South Carolina. Nothing fancy but the BBQ is to die for.
