Visit the South Carolina Coast!

Can you believe that we were all unsure about the virus just a year ago and how it could stop those from traveling over the summer months? Yes, it’s still unbelievable that many of us have learned to work from home or our kids learning from home. But since the vaccines have rolled out at the beginning of the year and more restrictions are going away, people are ready to travel. “Vaxications” is the new term coined by USA Today that refers to the vaccinated vacationer that has received their vaccine and is ready to hit the beach and start traveling again! At Carolina One Vacation Rentals, we want to assure all of our loyal patrons that although the vaccines have rolled out, our cleaning standards will remain high and stay in accordance with CDC Guidelines.  We have seen an increase in the number of families ready to hit the beach this summer and are thrilled to have visitors enjoying our beautiful coast again. 

Book Your Next Vacation Today before They’re all gone! 

Vacation rentals are booking up quickly for the rest of the year, as many people are ready to get back to making lifelong memories with their family & friends at the beach. 

Spending a Summer in Folly Beach or Edisto Beach is always a treat, but what about the Fall? The Fall months bring cooler evenings to beat the heat during the days, filled with sun, sand, and surf. There are plenty of things that everyone in the family can enjoy as far as dining options, things going on around town, and of course, fishing! Whether you’re visiting Wild Dunes or vacationing to Isle of Palms, we know your visit to the Charleston Coast will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to take on the long days ahead.

One of the benefits of booking with us is that you will get the best price guarantee. Another benefit is knowing that you can bring the whole family, and yes, that includes the dog, too, as we have pet-friendly vacation rentals. We hope to see you and your family this year as you travel to get here safely!

Ring in the New Year in the Charleston Area

Ring in the New Year in the Charleston Area

It’s hard to believe that 2020 is almost over, and it will soon be time to ring in 2021 with the family. Vacationing to the Charleston area is just what your family needs after the crazy year we have all had. Spending New Year’s with us at Carolina One Vacation Rentals will allow your family to be close to the fun. Let’s look below at a few things that are happening this New Year’s Eve for your family to celebrate while on vacation.

The Flip Flop Drop

This year’s annual Flip Flop Drop-in Folly Beach will look a little different compared to previous years. Instead of heading down to Center Street, where it has been held for many years, you and your family will be able to watch it virtually from your vacation rental. Cook up some delicious steaks or seafood at your vacation rental, make up some charcuterie boards and enjoy a few glasses of wine while you sit and wait for the Flip Flop to drop. Once the clock strikes midnight, then it will be time to watch them fall from the firetruck as it has for many years!

2021 New Year’s Virtual 5K

Ring in the New Year in the Charleston Area

We know that 2020 seemed to bring out the best in ourselves, and we may have all started our New Year’s resolutions a little later in the year. Instead of waiting until later in the year, start 2021 out on a good note with a New Year’s Virtual 5K Run/Walk. Be sure to register today to get your packets in time for your fun run, and have a blast doing so. There is also a free option if you don’t want the fun swag that goes along with the run, which can be a good option for families. Head down to the beach and walk along with it, looking for shells as you get in your 3.1 miles together. Just enjoy your day with the family and start 2021 out on a good note this year.

While many things are happening this New Year’s here in the Charleston area, we wanted to share these with you. If you haven’t booked your next getaway to stay with us at Carolina One Vacation Rentals, now is the time. We hope to see you and your family as you help us ring in the New Year here on the South Carolina Coast!

Practicing Social Distancing While On Vacation

Enjoy your Vacation at the beach with these helpful tips!

Stick Figure Family Vacationing

Staying connected while practicing responsible physical distancing strategies is important. Here are a few ways to relax, recharge and enjoy your next vacation while still practicing physical distancing.

Physical Distancing At the Beach

Wave a boater’s hello to friendly passers by while keeping a healthy 6 feet apart. When you head down to the beach for the day try to walk a little bit further down from the beach access, space your chairs or towels a few feet apart from each other. Practicing physical distancing at the beach takes a little extra time but it is always worth it!

Activities that practice Physical Distancing: 

  • Grab a book to read while at the beach
  • Collect Seashells
  • Build a sandcastle
  • Go Fishing
  • Water Sports like kayaking and paddle boarding

Have little ones?
Bring a kiddie pool to fill up with ocean water and let them play. This helps if the water is packed with people and it also helps during times that currents are too strong for the little ones to play safely. 

Practicing Social Distancing while on vacation.

Mask

In the “New Normal” this is now a sign of respect. By wearing a mask you aren’t protecting yourself from others germs but protecting others from your germs. If everyone wears a mask than we are all more protected.

Make it stylish and fun! You are living through a historical moment in our world history, have a DIY project day with the family and make your own vacation themed masks. Instead of matching family shirts this year do fun masks and share them on your social media. We would love to see what creative fun styles you come up with!

Gloves & Hand Washing

If you are wearing gloves, be sure to change them frequently. The best analogy that I think we can all relate the easiest to is pretending your gloves are sticky on the outside. Try to avoid cross contamination.   Little “regular motions” are easy to forget, like grabbing your sunglasses or using your cell phone while grocery shopping.

Its important to keep your hands extra clean & wash them frequently. When you’re out and about bring a small portable bottle of hand sanitizer with you to use after touching communal surfaces.

Nature Trails

Retreating to nature is a great way to stay active while practicing social distancing however, in beautiful places nature trails can sometimes be a bit crowded. It’s important to keep your distance of 6 ft. apart. Be mindful of community spaces with community benches, picnic tables and bathrooms. If you do use these facilities, wipe them off before you sit and when you’re finished with a disinfectant wipe.

Pets

We love our furry friends and we know everyone always wants to pet them however, right now may not be the best time to allow passers by to stop and give your pup snuggles. Their coats, their collars, their leashes and vest are all things that collect germs that can be transmitted to you or others.

Keyless Entry

At Carolina One Vacation Rentals we offer a contact-less check in process. Our properties offer keyless entry with a remote check in process. to help promote the importance of physical distancing and keep our staff and guests as safe as possible.

We want your vacation to the Charleston Beach area to be as worry free as possible! With mindfulness and a little extra thought, you can not only enjoy your well deserved vacation but also do your part to help prevent the spread of this vicious virus.
