Have you ever wondered just how big of a beachfront mansion rental you could rent in the United States? It turns out there is a ton of pretty big beach mansions available to rent, but not very many that are truly huge (bigger than 9 bedrooms). Whether you are interested in one of these giant beachfront mansions for a wedding reception or a big family reunion, they can often be more affordable than you may think. When you look at the pricing of these rentals, it’s helpful to divide the number of bedrooms from the nightly rental price. From there you can compare to other options like getting a block of rooms for your group at a resort. Let’s get started!

Port of Call, a 7000sqft Oceanfront Isle of Palms Mansion Rental
For our next property we head back to the Isle of Palms. This luxury estate is located on the prestigious Millionaire Road, one of the most exclusive and expensive stretches of road in the United States. The houses on this stretch of beachfront are all massive mansions, and Port of Call is no exception. We already mentioned some stuff to do in Isle of Palms, but we’d be remissed if we didn’t mention one of the top restaurants in South Carolina which is just down the street. ACME Low Country Kitchen (ACME’s Tripadvisor Reviews) has seafood that rivals anywhere in the South and absolutely can’t be missed.
Port of Call has floor to ceiling windows on almost every inch of wall facing the ocean. The views from this mansion are arguably the best on this entire list. The luxury kitchen has the highest end commercial Thermador appliances on the market, making cooking for large groups a breeze. One of the coolest features of this rental is the pool, and it is hands down the best on this list. The fountains arching into the pool overlooking the beach makes for a setting that is impossible to forget. If you have a group large enough to utilize this massive beachfront mansion, you won’t be disappointed.

30A My Way, an 8300sqft Luxury Beachfront Florida Mansion Rental
“30A My Way” is located in Inlet Beach, Florida. Inlet Beach is located between Panama City Beach and Destin in the Northern Panhandle of Florida. The stretch of towns on the famous 30A highway have some of the most beautiful beaches and clearest water on the Gulf of Mexico. This area is known as “The Forgotten Coast” and is one of the last areas of Florida that is not yet fully developed along the coast. This area is full of the beauty and charm that first brought people to Florida, before huge highrise condo complexes were ever built.
This mansion is the most expensive on this list, by a significant margin. In our opinion it is also the most beautiful, and definitely the most luxurious. All 4 floors have a little something for everyone. The massive theater room, the multiple wet bars, the 4th floor poker and game room overlooking the ocean, the beautiful pool, we could go on and on. “30A My Way” isn’t quite the biggest property on our list, but it is our favorite.
