About Chunky

Hey! I am John, aka, “Chunky” to all my family and friends. You may wonder how I came to acquire such an interesting nickname – I used to call my best friend “Chubby” and he called me “Chunky”. That childish nickname calling stuck and now EVERYONE calls me “Chunky”. We wanted a fun, catchy and memorable business name and “Chunky’s Chairs & Umbrellas” seemed to check all the boxes!  My wife, Lisa, and I recently relocated to the low country from the Midwest after 50 years of snow. We realized after many years of vacationing at the Isle of Palms that this is where we wanted to spend the rest of our lives. We are so excited that you have chosen Isle of Palms as your vacation destination – as it has been our escape from the Midwest for many years! We realize that your vacation time is extremely valuable; therefore, let us make your stay at the beach unforgettable!

We provide beach chair and umbrella service starting at 9:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m., daily. We offer daily rates, and discounted rates for rentals exceeding three days. We appreciate your business and hope you have a fantastic stay at the best beach on the east coast!
