Island Realty Becomes a Haven for Displaced Gulf Vacationers In South Carolina

Due to the tragic events in the Gulf of Mexico, travelers are choosing the Charleston, South Carolina area and Island Realty as a vacation alternative

Isle of Palms, SC (PRWEB) May 8, 2010

Island Realty (http://www. islandrealty. com/?NCK=haven), headquartered in Isle of Palms and one of the leading providers of professionally managed beach homes and condominiums in the greater Charleston, South Carolina area is reporting that due to the recent tragic oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico they have seen a spike in information requests and reservations.

Displaced vacationers and those seeking alternative vacation rentals are using IslandRealty. com or calling Island Realty directly to book vacations in and find information about Isle of Palms (http://www. islandrealty. com/isle-of-palms. htm? NCK=haven), Wild Dunes (http://www. islandrealty. com/wild-dunes-sc. htm? NCK=haven), Sullivan’s Island (http://www. islandrealty. com/sullivans-island-sc. htm? NCK=haven) and Dewees Island. These vacation destinations are convenient to Mount Pleasant, Shem Creek and downtown Charleston. Travelers who traditionally book in the Gulf Area for their vacations are now looking at the Charleston area due to its convenience to many Southeastern and Midwestern cities such as Atlanta, Knoxville, Cincinnati and Birmingham. The Charleston, South Carolina area is served by the Charleston International Airport and easily accessible by major highways including being part of the I-95 corridor.

Concerned vacationers have been looking at the Charleston beaches and Island Realty due to the quality of the beaches, the family atmosphere, great nightlife, excellent restaurants, and varied entertainment and shopping opportunities.

“Our entire team is deeply saddened by the events that are ongoing in the Gulf of Mexico. We all live near and make our living from our great natural resources and we wish for a speedy and safe resolution to the oil spill,” stated Alexander “Sandy” D. Stone III, Owner of Island Realty Inc. “For those vacationers who are unsure about going to the Gulf Shore during this time, we are glad to be the choice for you. We believe that the Charleston area will be a great alternative if you feel the need to relocate your summer vacation.”
