Beth Keetch has spent the last 20 years booking and handling individual homes on Isle of Palms. She began her journey when she first listed her own Wild Dunes home on VRBO. An interior designer by trade, she redecorated the cottage and started booking. It was an immediate success. Soon friends and friends of friends were asking her to decorate and book their beach homes. Within in 2 years, what started as a small side business turned to full time booking and management. She was successfully able to win clients from traditional management companies with her personalized care, attention to detail and excellent rate of rental income.
While growing up in Sumter, SC Beth has been visiting the Charleston area all of her life. Her family finally purchased a beach house in 1977 in Wild Dunes (back when it was Isle of Palms Beach and Racquet Club) She has watched as the island has grown and blossomed after the devastation of Hurricane Hugo. She has seen Charleston grow from a small southern city to the dynamic city that has been named Number 1 tourist destination in the US many times over.
EBK Designs reflects the true meaning of a boutique property management company. Our company mission is to remain small and focus on our two most important goals – the care of our homeowner’s investment and the enjoyment our guests. We offer the best beach vacations at our homes on Isle of Palms at the best rate possible. We do this by truly renting directly from the owners. The rate will be the posted rate of the house, cleaning fees when applicable, pet fees when applicable and 14% tax as required by the state. No “property management fees”, no “resort fees”, no “VRBO booking fees”, no “linen fees”, and no “miscellaneous fees”. These additional fees tend to add several hundred dollars to even weekend rentals. Payment is made directly to the owner of the house.
EBK will book and reserve the house, receive the payment for the owner and handle every aspect of your vacation. From check in to check out you will have 24 hour/7 days a week access to us and our company. Each home is professionally decorated, maintained, and cleaned. We are happy to direct you to just about anything you need to make your stay exactly what you are looking for – baby equipment, grocery delivery, personal chef, chair and umbrella rentals, fishing charters, eco-tours, bike rentals, jet skis, parasailing, beach photography, boat rentals, etc, etc. Since Charleston has become known as quite the ”Foodie” city, we will gladly give you our take (as locals) to all the hottest new restaurants
Our approach to each home is to manage it as if it were our own. We consider our homeowners as partners, working together to maintain the integrity of their home while realizing maximum rental income.
If you want a vacation with a personal touch without having to pay additional “middle –man” fees, then we would love to hear from you and help you plan your SC Low-country experience
