Frequently Asked Questions

Please be aware & mindful that there are alligators throughout the fresh water areas of Charleston, SC. You should assume that there is an alligator in every pond, lake & fresh water river.  Please do not allow small children or dogs near the edge of these fresh water areas.  DO NOT feed or taunt the alligators!
Please note that there is construction ongoing throughout the Charleston area and on all of the Islands. Many of our managed homes are in areas where there has been intense real estate activity and there are almost continous home improvements going on in addition to the normal off season routine maintenance.

We don't get notice of construction projects but please let us know if you encounter excessive noise.  Contractors are required to obey all noise limits and working hour restrictions.   
Please do not afix balloons, banners or other 'party' signs to walls, cabinets or other structures. These will remove the paint. You will be charged for the cost to repair each item damaged. The cost to repaint a wall can easily be $250 alone. 
Beds will be freshly made, towels* laid out and a starter set of amenities like soap, lotion and shampoo are provided too. We also provide a starter set of kitchen paper and toilet paper to get you going as well as some laundry and dish detergent. If you need additional supplies you will need to provide those beyond the starter set. 

*We provide 1 bath towel, 1 hand towel and 1 wash cloth per person. Additional towels are available to rent at an addional charge. Requests must be made more than 24 hours prior to check in. 
We get asked about Palmetto Bugs all the time. They can be pretty big, can fly and will scurry around the floor but they are largely harmless. They do occasionally come inside, especially at night and during or after any storms. Rest assured all of our homes are professionally treated at least quarterly for pests. Any bugs that manage to get inside will die quickly.

According to Eric Benson, Ph.D. professor and extension entomologist at Clemson University “It has nothing to do with cleanliness or the economic conditions of the area,” said Benson. “They could be around the nicest home or the nicest hotel or resort.”

If you leave the doors or windows open, especially at night, you will likely see a few. This is perfectly normal. If you see 20 or 30 all in one place then please let us know. This might mean we have a nest somewhere in the home and we'll need to get pest control out to take care of it. This is extremely rare!  

Please don't worry about bugs, enjoy your vacation. You'll likely not see any while you are here, we just include this note so you understand it's not unusual to see some and it doesn't mean the home isn't well looked after! 

Most community pools remain open from March through October but this does vary by resort and is subject to maintenance schedules and emergency closures for health reasons. Please contact us to see if the pool will be closed during your fall or winter vacation.

We do not manage any of these community pools and are not responsible for management of them. We do not provide refunds for pool closure. 

The premises, all fixtures thereon and all property on or around the premises is provided to Tenant “as is” without any warranties of any kind.  None of iTrip Vacations, Sea Oats Vacation Property Management, Inc. or the owner of the premises shall be responsible for any direct, indirect, consequential or incidental damages arising out of or relating to this Rental Agreement.  The use of the premises is at Tenant’s own risk.

Many homes have gargabe disposals. Not all food is suitable for disposing of in a garbage disposal.  

Do not put any chemicals, hot oil, grease, coffee grinds, pasta, bones, shells of any kind, oatmeal, nuts, onion skins, eggshells, trash, pumpkins, fibrous vegetables, lettuces, stringy vegetables, potato peel, pits, corn husks down the disposal.  

We check the disposal is working prior to all guest arrivals. 
In the event the disposal or kitchen sink plumbing is blocked due to material put down the disposal this is the responsibility of the guest.  If a plumber has to be called then the guest will be charged for that visit. 

Please NO PARTIES, EVENTS, PERFORMING ARTISTS OR BANDS ARE ALLOWED AT ANY TIME! These are cause for eviction with no refund and may damage our ability to offer the home for future guests exposing you to liability. This is a quiet residential neighborhood -- please be respectful of the home's neighbors at all times.

Properties may include a noise alert monitoring system and other electronic devices in order to ensure that neighborhood noise and occupancy levels are respected. Do not tamper with amny device. 

Occupancy is limited at all times during your stay - day or night - to the maximum 'sleeps' number stated in the listing. Please do not invite additional people to the home. 

Early Check-in
We work hard to try and allow our guests to get in early. This depends on check out times, cleaning and inspection schedules as well as any maintenance issues. We will text on the day of arrival once we know we can allow an early check in. 

Phone Number
Please make sure your mobile number is up to date in your iTrip account. This will allow us to offer you an early check in!

Travel Agents
Depending on which travel website you book through you may see a separate charge for their booking fee. 

Late Check-Out
We will consider late check out requests on days when we do not have an incoming guests. We really appreciate it you can be checked out by 10am. Please let us know if you do check out earlier, we will start cleaning as soon as we can so the next guest can enjoy an early start to their vacation!

Please pay attention to parking restrictions. Many homes have limited parking available. We don't want you to get a ticket or towed!

Please contact the travel agent that you used to make your booking if you wish to cancel. They will notfiy us directly. 

Things to Do!
Check out our activities website: Charleston Activities 

Our vacation homes are located in quiet residential areas. We generally have great relations with our local neighbors and we want to keep it that way. Please pay particular attention to:

- No loud noises after 9pm. (Includes no Hot Tub use after 9pm)
- Only park in the designated areas (not on the landscaping) 
- Do not roll out trash to the street, trash service will do this
- Do not hang beach towels over railings or leave beach gear outside

- On Kiawah island - Bikes must be in the garage (if there is access) or in a designated bike rack or out of sight of the road after dark. 

- Beach Front Homes - TURTLE SEASON No lights visible from beach (May 1 to Oct 31)

The Cities will issue a ticket and a fine for these items. 

No barbeque grills of any kind are permitted on balconies or in the unit. No open flames (i.e., candle burning) are permitted on balconies or in the unit. Do not dismantle smoke detectors as they are there for your protection. Use the overhead stove fan when cooking to avoid accidental, activation of smoke detector alarm.

The guest will be charged a $200 repair and inspection fee for tampering with or deactivating a smoke alarm or noise monitor.


All County & City ordinances during rental occupancy must be followed. Non compliance of any of these ordinances will result in eviction of the property and forfeiture of all monies paid.   Tenant agrees to pay any fines levied by the County, City and Town and further Tenant will be liable to Homeowner and Agent for any and all lost rental revenues from the suspension or removal of their business licenses as a result of Tenants actions.

We utilize third party professional service companies for the provision of Handyman Services, A/C & Heating Repair, Pest Control, Wildlife Removal, Plumbing Repair, Pool & Hot Tub Service, Electrical Repairs, Appliance Repairs and any other repair or maintenance of a technical or specialist nature.  We only used trusted, reputable professional service companies to assess, repair and replace equipment that needs attention. We will work with them to get the first available service appointment. Given the Post COVID economy it can be a challenge to get fast, timely service. Rest assured we will do our best to resolve issues quickly and our service providers understand our need for fast, reliable care.  Due to the global supply crunch, parts and even replacement units may not be available which can be frustrating. Please be patient as we work hard behind the scenes to make small miracles happen on a daily basis!

No one may perform any maintenance work on the home without our specific permission in writing.  
Our rates automatically adjust for the season as well as to reflect supply and demand. To access the best rate please begin the booking process on the iTrip Vacations Charleston Beaches site (don't worry you won't be charged until you're ready to book). This will present you our current up-to-date rates!
The person who makes the reservation must be over 25 years old and must be present during the entire stay.   A mobile number must be provided where we can contact the primary renter at all times. If code enforcement call us with any issues we need to be able to contact someone onsite with 60 minutes to address any issus or you may be liable for any fines imposed by the local government. 

We recommend adding a second mobile number to your account to make sure we can contact someone at all times. This second number may also be used to receive door codes in the event the first phone dies or is left in the unit. (It happens a lot and we are unable to provide codes to spouses or family members for security reasons). 
We want everyone to have a great stay but we understand that things may break or some items may get overlooked. We'll do our best to get them fixed (please review the “Maintenance House Rule” on what this means). 
We do ask that all guests TAKE TIME TO BE KIND.  Common courtesy goes a long way.  Sadly since the pandemic we have all witnessed an increase in aggressive or unacceptable behavior.  Our team has taken a lot of abuse and experienced some very unkind guests.   

Misunderstandings are one of the leading causes of guest complaints. Please make sure you read everything we send to you.  This include the entire rental listing, all of our house rules, all photos, all emails & texts and all the help articles in your iTrip account. This helps avoid misunderstandings in the first place. 
For our own safety and security we have a zero tolerance rule with guests who are rude, abusive, discourteous or argumentative.  We do not engage with those guests any more beyond asking them to read our TAKE TIME TO BE KIND policy.  

Our vacation homes are on a septic tank or a city sewer system. It is important that guests do not put large amounts of toilet paper or any other other products down the toilet.  We flush all toilets prior to a guests arrival to verify that they are working correctly. Any blockages that occur during the guests stay at the home are the responsibility of the guest to unblock. If a plumber is required to unblock a toilet then the guest will be charged $250 for that visit. 
Charleston and suburbs are charming places to stay.  It should be noted that Charleston is also a working Port City and has a large manufacturing base (including Boeing, Mercedes and other major international manufacturers). Since we are both very flat and surrounded my water sound at night can travel very far.  

Train noise, airplane noise, road noise and manufacturing noise may be audible during your stay depending on weather conditions and wind direction.

We do not offer refunds, credits or discounts in the event that you find these to be problem. Light sleepers should bring ear plugs or a white noise machine. Many phones can download a white noise machine too. They work well. 

We're available by text from 8am to 8pm. For urgent issues after 8pm please call this number for our After Hours service. They will alert us for urgent issues or leave a note for us for non-urgent issues. In emergency dial 911.  

Urgent issues include: Being locked out, water leaks. 

Emergency Issues include: Gas leaks. Fire. Life Safety Issues. Call 911. 

Issues that will typically be dealt with the next day include Air Conditioning issues.

Power Outages: These can be frequent on the islands. Power company's are quick to resolve. If it doesn't not appear to be a neighborhood wide outage please contact us. 

Buyer beware! We do not put any of our homes on Craig s list. If you see one of our homes on there it is a scam. Please NEVER send money to anyone posing as a host on Craig s list. If they send you a contract and they don't disclose their name it's an easy way to know that they are scammers. 

Please call or text us if you are not sure that the listing is genuine. 
We don't accept change requests for reservations within 60 days of the check in date. You should cancel and rebook your new dates.

If you book a pet friendly property then the following provisions (included in the rental agreement) apply:

  • ALL PETS ARE SUBJECT TO APPROVAL, please let us know what you would like to bring with you.

  • We ALLOW 1 small/medium sized dog FREE but additional dogs and large dogs (over 40lbs) are $75 per animal.

If there is no security deposit then the guest authorizes their credit card to be charged directly for the repair or clean up cost.  

We do NOT allow any animals other than DOGS, this means NO cats, NO birds (especially NO Parrots), NO livestock or other farm animals (Incuding domesticated pigs), NO insects, NO reptiles, NO Spiders, NO Ponies or other Horses and other 'exotic' pets.  In fact NOTHING OTHER THAN DOGS.

If the vacation home has the option of a heated pool please note that heating of the pool is available for an additional fee and heating is limited to 85F. All of our heated pools use propane which has to be delivered. Sometimes, due to the weather, the gas may run out before the next scheduled delivery. We will contact the gas company to schedule a refill as soon as we can but gas delivery can be difficult to arrange in Charleston. 

We don't recommend heating the pool when the ambient temperature is below 50F. This will drain the gas quickly. We do not provide refunds if the gas is used. If the pool heater isn't used and the gas is not used we can provide a pro rata refund based on days used. 


If the premises include a private or community pool (including hot tubs), then the Tenant hereby acknowledges that the premises they have reserved include a community pool and the undersigned agrees and acknowledges that the community pool and patio/deck can be dangerous areas, that the deck/patio can be slippery when wet, and that injury may occur to anyone who is not careful. With full knowledge of the above facts and warnings, the undersigned Tenant accepts and assumes all risks involved to Tenant and all of Tenant's guests in or related to the use of the private or community pool (including hot tubs) and patio areas.


 All private pools and hot tubs are serviced weekly and this is NOT always on the day of a guest arrival as check ins occur throughout the week.  

Our team will skim the surface of the pool before your arrival but we cannot vacuum out the pool or hot tub as only the pool service company can do that.  The pool service company will take care of this every week and they also balance the chemicals. We have a lot of storms which may change the appearance of the pool water in our pools - this is normal. The pool service company will be out to take care of it as soon as they can. 

If you are using the hot tub, please rinse off all sunscreen and sand before entering the water. If the hot tub is left in a dirty condition your credit card will be charged $250 charge to have it pumped out, cleaned and rebalanced.  

Must be over 25 years of age to rent any property. 

Person making the reservation must be present during the stay. DO NOT BOOK FOR OTHER PEOPLE.


Family vacation
5/5 stars
Swim By The Sea was the perfect house for our family vacation. It is spacious and has great decks with ocean views. This home has all the necessities you need while on vacation. In addition to the necessities the home has plenty of beach towels, toys and games. It was the perfect getaway for our family. The management team is very responsive if you have any questions.

Great house for a girls weekend!
5/5 stars
Overall we had a great stay at the property. There were little things that came up during our stay, but the staff at iTrip were there to help and rectify any issues we had. The space was great and all the rooms and bathrooms were perfect for the 8 girls we had staying there. We loved being able to have access to the beach and to the pool and you definitely do not need to heat the pool in the summer!

wonderful 50th anniversary with family at the beach
5/5 stars
Swim by the Sea was great! The house and pool were as good as or better than the pics. Easy walk to the beach even for the 5 and 3 year old grandchildren. The pool, outdoor shower and bath were great, extra pool toys as well. The open kitchen and great room were super for the whole family gatherings. Steven and Sara did a great job marking sure we had everything we needed. If we could give a 6 star rating we would. 5 stars for sure!!! Bill and Joanie Becker

Beautiful modern beach house
5/5 stars
The house is gorgeous! It’s very spacious, clean, and modern. Nine of us stayed and were very comfortable. The beach is just a short walk away and visible from the house. We enjoyed our coffee on the spacious porch in the am, walked the beach, and hung out by the pool in the day. I would happily return! Christi M

Great stay at swim by the sea!
4/5 stars
My family and another family stayed at swim by the sea over spring break and had a lovely time! The home is in a great location, just 2 doors from the beach with incredible views of the water from the house. It’s on a quiet, beautiful residential area. The house itself is modern, airy and spacious and 2 families with 5 kids among us all fit perfectly. The outside area is awesome to have with a nice sized pool and outdoor bathroom/shower. We had a small issue with the pool heat (which you have to pay extra for) - it wasn’t turned on one of the days we paid for and upon notifying iTrip they did get it fixed promptly and turned it on, however if it were us, we would’ve reimbursed us for the day of no pool heat since it is quite substantial to pay the extra costs to heat the pool each day. Apart from that we didn’t have any issues and we really enjoyed the house! Definitely would recommend it!
- Doreen

We are glad you had a great stay at Swim By The Sea. As regards the pool heat, it was automatically on for the entire duration of your stay and we checked it that morning - as we do every morning. The reason it went off was someone in your party went into the control box and activated the Spa schedule. When you contacted us about the pool we switched it back and the pool was up to temp within 40 minutes - at lunch time. So the pool was heated (except when your party turned on the spa heater, which also uses gas) throughout your stay and no refund was possible.

Book this house - it's even better than the pictures! Situated so close to a gorgeous beach with two huge porches, Swin by the Sea was an incredible escape for our group. We had 10 people staying and had more than enough space to all be together for dinners in the evening or a quiet morning coffee on the porch listening to the waves crash in. Steven & Sarah and the iTrip Vacations Charleston Beaches were phenomenal hosts with a welcome letter, a bottle of wine, some local treats, and a book full of information about the house and the area. It's convenient to local downtown pubs and eateries but far enough away that you're on a private drive. Our entire group agreed that we would go back in a heartbeat. Stellar house and stellar stay!

Fabulous Home
5/5 stars
The home and location were perfect for a family vacation. The outdoor space was inviting and provided opportunities for dining on the porch and poolside. The pool was lovely and the outdoor shower and toilet made cleaning up 2 children after a day at the beach easy. The contemporary home is lovely and has a fantastic view of the ocean. Tessa at iTrip responded quickly to any questions we had during our stay. The neighborhood was very quiet and promoted relaxation. The house was perfect for our vacation and we hope to stay there again.

Beach Bach
5/5 stars
This was a beautiful home, an amazing location and the owners were very responsive. We felt safe and loved the close access to the beach as well as the amenities. The only complaint we would have had would be that there weren’t enough paper towels or trash bags which made the end of the trip tricky as we were cleaning up.

Amazing in every way!
5/5 stars
I can’t put into words how wonderful our stay was but I’ll try. The home is immaculate, spacious, modern with a beach vibe. It feel like a smart home with all the dimmers, lighting for ambiance. Beautiful decor throughout and lots of natural light with ocean views. The pool and hot tub were just outstanding. A 2 minute walk to the beach and easy access to restaurants! The hosts were gracious and quick to respond if needed. The only suggestions would be an upgrade on the grill or just a good cleaning, tutorial on pool heat & lights and maybe a local restaurant guide. Other than that! Our favorite beach stay ever.

Isle of perfection
5/5 stars
Spending three weeks in this house felt like three minutes. We were happy every second of our stay in this beautiful home. The house is perfectly situated with a stunning view. The pool made our stay even more enjoyable. In addition, the house is well stocked and every need is met. The management is attentive and quick to respond to any question. The layout and comfort of this house made it a Home away from home for us and we were sad to leave it . Hopefully we will return soon!

Tranquil modern home in great location!
5/5 stars
This home is a perfect location to get away with your family. The kids loved the saltwater pool with its large array of inflatables and pool toys! We all enjoyed the short walk to the amazingly uncrowded wide and expansive beach. Perfect for boarding, shelling or just relaxing! We got take out and enjoyed eating on the porch watching the waves crash on the beach. We can't end without mentioning the amazingly large and soft sofa on the second floor! Just chill and read or gaze at the horizon as the birds swoop and loop! We saw hawks and eagles! We'll be back. The girls declared this the 'Best vacation home ever!" : )

Exceeded our expectations in nearly every way
5/5 stars
We initially rented this house for two weeks and ended up staying for two months (seriously). It is a perfect beach getaway. Private beach entrance a few steps away. A super modern, heated, saltwater pool with outdoor pool cabana that has full bath. As for the the interior, it was super high-end across he board. Both the owner and property manager were super helpful and nice.
