What Makes This Property So Unique

3 Bedrooms, 3 Full Baths, Large Dock & Covered Pier Head Directly on Waterway (Sleeps 10)

Sitting on the Intracoastal Waterway, just a brief 5-minute boat ride from the friendly Isle of Palms Marina, sits a private secluded island get-away where modern amenities intersect the finest the Lowcountry environs has to offer. “Goat Tales” is the perfect home for those seeking a time to refresh and enjoy themselves among the history, beauty and lore of Charleston’s fabled Goat Island – a hidden island gem along the South Carolina coast. At our 'by boat only experience' you'll find accommodations for 10 in our Master Suite, Master Bedroom and guest room.  Our oasis also boasts a Reverse Osmosis Water Purification System which translates to clean, pure and odorless water to enjoy. Waterfront features include 2 floating docks, 4' wide aluminum "sure grip" ramp, large covered pier head with water and electricity, fish cleaning sink and table, lighted walkway and Tiki Bar. Our dock is located inside the seasonal NO WAKE ZONE.

You will enjoy vibrant morning sunrises, intensely vivid sunsets as well as bright stars in the night skies and the ever-changing tides. Mesmerized by the Intracoastal Waterway, you’ll experience life on the water, the ever-changing salt marsh, fiddler crabs, sea birds, deer, and, two miniature prized goats, that truly lend authenticity to Goat Island’s name.


Friends and family will enjoy a designer-styled home that has all the ultra modern amenities amidst 2,000 square feet of spacious and open living with views of the water and nature from all vantage points. Photos will be a must from your Adirondack chairs while making memories around the custom fire pit situated on a new seating deck, or while sitting on the covered porch high above ground level with a decorative ceiling fan humming - along with all the requirements demonstrating that @ Goat Tales, comfort is King. Enjoy the postcard view...
