Isle of Palms Reviews
Great community! Family focused; lovely beaches; peaceful and not crowded; extremely well run city; lots of unique housing to choose from; committed city council, DPW, low property taxes, limited rules and govt, great police dept.
The Isle of Palms is a beautiful beach front location with a tight knit community of residents. I love the openness and trusting nature of each resident. The beauty of the island is clearly contagious to all of its inhabitants who are the most beautiful people on the inside and out who would do anything to help one another. I have worked the election polls for the past three elections conducted for city hall, the primary, and general elections. Although political opinions differ, the people all enter the polls and have nothing but amazing and inspiring attitudes towards one another. I love diversity and if I could see anything change on my beautiful island it would be to expand the demographic. I think the most successful communities are those of different backgrounds, upbringings, religions, and races. This would make by beautiful home just a little bit more perfect for me.
The people on IOP are very friendly and the beaches are beautiful but one thing many people don’t check out is the intercostal waterway it is also a pretty site and is worth seeing the best restaurant in my opinion is Luke and Ollie’s and I also recommend going to the opposite end of the beach if you want to just go to the beach and don’t care about shopping. Also make sure you check in on Bubba (the parrot) at Island Time Beach Shop downtown. Current resident Finn
