Charleston was founded in 1670, which makes it one of the most historic cities in our nation. 1111 Middle Street on Sullivan’s Island has been a part of Charleston’s history for just over 150 years! Built around 1860 (owned by the same family for 125 years) and featured in the National Historic Register, 1111 Middle Street is one of the most special and unique homes your family will ever spend a vacation! 

Located near Fort Moultrie, this property was center to the defense of Charleston during the War of 1812, the first shots of the War Between the States, and the sinking of U-Boats during World War Two. During the Cold War, the conning towers of nuclear submarines would silently pass this amazing home after being armed at the Naval Base. Even today, from the large screen porch your family will be able to see the coming and going of hulking container ships, cruise ships, and the Charleston Shrimp Fleet as they navigate the channel between Sullivan’s Island and Fort Sumter. From sunsets over Charleston’s Church Steeples, to the imperious Cooper River Bridge, 1111 Middle Street offers one of the most special views of Historic Charleston and the Atlantic Ocean since the early 1800’s. 

1111 Middle Street has many features of the property that preserve its special history. The property owner’s steps at preservation have made the home highly desirable. Even Hollywood has recognized the uniqueness of this home and featured it in the movie “Dear John”! History lives both inside and outside of 1111 Middle Street. The interior features historic wood floors and walls with four bedrooms and two full baths. Smoking and candles are prohibited to preserve this beautiful home. 

Two bedrooms are located upstairs and feature harbor views. The downstairs master bedroom opens onto the oceanfront porch. The living room and dining area also open to the screened porch. The preservation of this home prevents it from featuring a central heating and cooling system. It is closed during the winter season and air conditioning is provided with window cooling units. Also, in keeping with the historic nature of the home, only a single television is featured. The large screen porch is where your family will spend most of their time when not on the beach. It is wide with incredible views and is ideally positioned to capture the southwest winds during the summer months making it comfortable despite the heat. 

A short private path takes you down to a quiet beach that changes in size based on the Charleston tides. Beachside Vacations is so proud to offer you the opportunity to relive history in this truly amazing home that has been watching over Charleston for 150 years. From battles that shaped our country’s history, to hurricanes and earthquakes, 1111 Middle Street has been present on Sullivan’s Island throughout and is the perfect home for your family’s next vacation. Book early for the best chance to reserve this amazing home! "Licensed vacation rental by Town of Sullivan's Island."

Picture perfect and it matched the pictures! This home was a beautiful throwback to times gone by. If you’re looking for a beach getaway filled with nostalgia and coziness... this place is the best. You have everything you need and skip the modern frills. The porch is all you need at this home. You’ll go to sleep to the sounds of the ocean and love every minute.

This house is the quintessential Sullivan’s Island beach house that we were looking for. It is located in the quiet end of the island and you can not get closer to the beach at all! The porch was the highlight for us. The kitchen has all the tools you could ask. The beds are comfy and the a/c window units worked great in the few nights we needed them. I have nothing but great things to say about this property. We will be back!

The minute we walked in the door and opened the porch door we knew we had chosen the perfect beach house. Visiting for a family wedding, the location of the house was perfect but even better was the charm and warmth and large gathering spaces especially the oceanfront screened porch. The bedrooms worked well for us as we had some older family who slept in the first floor bedrooms and other in the upstairs bedrooms. Most evenings we were pulled to sleep in the comfy beds to the incredible breezes and the soft ocean waves but used the adequate room air conditioning units a couple of days. The house is old and very unique but the kitchen set up with two refridgerators, plenty of cooking and serving equipment and two separate work and prep spaces was perfect for our family gatherings. We will remember this place, our time on the beach and rocking away the beautiful evening sunsets on the porch for many years.

Rustic beach house with great views and plenty of space. Perfect for a family with young children. We loved watching the cargo ships come in and out of the harbor. Great area for exploring the beautiful environment and nature.

We loved our stay at this amazing historical home. If you are intrigued by life in days gone by, you will appreciate the simple splendor here. The view of Charleston harbor is better than any TV or movie. Fort Sumter is right in front of you! Frequent container ship sightings entertain. Sail boats at sunset are lovely. Bring your own binoculars because the ones at the house are all scratched. Original wood floors and shiplap walls lend a simple beauty. The kitchen is exceptionally well-equipped for cooking, baking, etc. Window a/c units cool bedrooms nicely. Keep porch shades down during high sun and house stays impressively comfortable. We spent most of our time on the screened back porch--rocking, talking, laughing and mesmerized by the view. Keep in mind this is an older home with the quirks inherent in such: no central a/c, a few bugs (the kind with legs)--minor drawbacks and a good trade-off for abiding in space occupied by Civil War officers.

1111 middle at is a charming old cottage located on Charleston harbor with a great view of Fort Sumter across the bay. A new and interesting experience was watching the huge container ships and other seagoing vessels come and go both day and night. The porch along the water side is lovely and catches the breezes from every angle. The kitchen is extremely well equipped. This cottage captures the flavor of South Carolina low country seaside getaways written about by Pat Conroy, Mary Alice Monroe, and Dorothea Benton Frank!
