A couple weeks ago I took a quick drive across the bridge, and over to Mt. Pleasant to meet a few girlfriends from out of town. Y’all most likely know this group well – the #BloggersDoTravel crew: Cathy of Poor Little It Girl, Jessica of My Style Vita, Emily of Life With Emily and Shelby of Glitter & Gingham. We’ve be traveling together for, gosh 5+ years at this point! From NYC and Miami to Outer Banks and Charleston – it’s been so fun to grow with these gals {on a personal + professional level} over the years. There’s something so special about girlfriends in the same industry who can come together for fun + business time and time again…and it never gets old!

Charleston {Folly to be specific} was our first bi-annual trip together, so it holds a special place in all our hearts. My bias aside haha. Therefore, the gals were THRILLED to come back to Charleston to check out a new spot – new to myself as well! The Beach Club at Charleston Harbor Resort & Marina was so generous to host us for the week, truly such a treat. It was a Charleston escape different from any other I’ve experienced. We were so close to downtown, but it didn’t feel as ‘Charleston’, which was a pleasant change of pace.


Upon arrival, we were greeted by a beautiful wrap-around front porch. Naturally, in true southern form, fully adorned with while rocking chairs. Entering the main lobby, we were welcomed by beautiful interiors that felt very reminiscent of colonial architecture, with a mix of nautical nods. All set-up in smaller living room style vignettes so guests feel very much so at home. Opposite the entrance, you catch a glimpse of the waterfront + marina, along with a grand pool in the forefront.

My guest room was perfection at every step. From the vaulted ceilings, to the pristine double vanity bathroom with soaking tub + standing shower, to the poolside porch that overlooked the water. All 92 rooms are waterfront facing, so each guest is guaranteed a stunning view. Looking across the water to downtown Charleston and the Ravenel Bridge. Fresh notes of nautical decor transitioned to the guest rooms with your traditional blue + white, but I also loved the pops of coral.

Let’s talk room service, shall we? There are a few key amenities that bring me true JOY when staying at a resort. For example, a balcony, a floating tub, in-room fireplace…and last, but certainly not least, A DOOR KNOB BREAKFAST CARD. Yesssssss. Who’s with me on this?! Admittedly, my stomach typically overrides my brain as I’m circling items left and right the night before. Haha. But that’s part of the fun, right? Beach Club Charleston did not disappoint in this department, offering an array of entree and al cart options to strike the fancy of any sweet or savory breakfast lover. TIP: might be basic, but try the oatmeal with all the fixings! Sounds crazy I know, but Cathy and I agreed – this was legit some of the best oatmeal of life.

What doesn’t The Beach Club at Charleston Harbor Resort & Marina have?! It really is a resort that has that home away from home feeling. Equipped with everything you’ll need to experience a balanced stay from start to finish. From multiple tropical pools {one specifically that’s geared toward adults-only or shall we say ‘no Marco Polo pool} and private beach, to an in-house spa and multiple on-site restaurant options. I was personally a big fan of the Beach Club Tiki Bar – helloooo house-made chips! The property also offers same day dry cleaning, valet + self parking, fitness center and 24-hour business center.

The concierge is super helpful for making last minute dinner reservations and/or recommendations. The resort also offers two transportation services. A complimentary car service into downtown Charleston, which is great for dinner off-property. Along with a water taxi that departs directly from the Marina. Offering stops to Waterfront Park {popular for it’s Pineapple Fountain} and Aquarium Warf for $8 one-way or $12 for a day pass.

The gals and I took full advantage of exploring the property, but nothing was more epic than a stroll {wine in hand} down the dock out to the marina. What a view.
