About this Property

  • Sleeps 4
  • 1 Bedrooms
  • 1 Bathrooms
  • Private vacation home
  • Approximately 600 square feet

Welcome to your home away from home! This guest home private, with it's own entrance, and is attached to our home. We newly re-decorated the place. It sleeps 4, with 2 in the queen bed, and 2 on the queen couch bed. We provide WiFi, toiletries, linens & towels, clothes iron, hair dryer, full kitchen, beach essentials, coffee & tea. Watch waterfowl while sitting by the serene backyard creek, or go on an adventure to Folly or downtown.

Centrally located for your beach hideaway, or business trip. James Island is close to everything, and very painless to get to.

Please note, our dining room shares a wall with the guesthouse bedroom. We never hear our guests, but guests do hear my four kids occasionally, during daytime hours. If you are not ok with this, you may want to stay somewhere else. If hearing kids play is ok with you, I guarantee you will appreciate the comfort, decor, additional touches, location, and cleanliness of our place.

In addition to the bedroom, full bath, full kitchen, and living room, our backyard is a outstanding place to hang out. We have sizable picnic table, a gas grille, a basketball hoop, a enormous garden, and a fire pit. So much to appreciate as you are waterfront. You are even welcome to fish in the waterway (catch & release), or use our canoe for a jaunt down the estuary.

We have a intelligent TV with many apps to savor.

If a need for a washer or dryer arises, please just let me know, and we will work something out so that you may use our laundry room.

We can only accommodate two guest cars. We give you a code to enter on the keypad a few days before you arrive. You can check in anytime after 3pm. We charge a $50 early check-in/late check-out fee, and can only guarantee we can accommodate it on the day of arrival/check out.

We appreciate interacting with our guests, but we also respect privacy when guests want to be alone. We are always available by text, phone, or a knock on the door for any needs or questions you have. We are a homeschooling family, so my kids are often home, and appreciate making conversation with others in the backyard. They can also respect your privacy, if that's what you prefer. It's all up to you.

No smoking, drugs, or events.

There is a creek behind our home. If you let your kids into our backyard, please be aware that the creek is attached, and be water safe.

We like to turn the WiFi off while we sleep. It will be off from about midnight to 6am (it is on a timer). If you would prefer to have it on during those hours, please just text me, and I’m happy to accommodate.

We have a modest, hypoallergenic dog, an indoor cat, and a tiny, indoor bunny, whom you may occasionally see my kids holding outside. All our family pets are peaceful and friendly, and you are welcome to pet them. We also have some laying hens, whom you will see complimentary ranging around the backyard.

My teenage daughter is a Certified Safe Sitter babysitter, and is available to babysit, should you need a sitter while you're here. Please message me if you will need her services.

We provide a bag of beach essentials, which includes beach towels, an umbrella, beach chairs (4), and sunscreen, which you are welcome to use during your stay. Does not include snorkeling gear.

If you are bringing an infant and you practice Cry-It-Out, please don’t book our place. While we’ve sound-proofed the walls, we have, on occasion, heard babies crying in the bedroom, and it is upsetting for my kids to hear. This is not a judgement on your parenting choices, but just a request that you don’t do it in our home. Thank you.

We are centrally located on James Island, about 10 mins. from Downtown Charleston, 15 to Folly Beach, close to historical landmarks, eateries, museums, plantations, and tons of fun things to do. The closest beach is about five mins. down the road. We are close to stores, museums, eateries, and entertainment. There is a grocery store one block away (with a Starbucks inside).

One thing to note: We are on a busy street. Please do not book if being on a busy street will bother you, as there is nothing we can do to change this, and bad reviews are unfair based on our location. Most of our negative reviews have been because of the busy street, which we cannot control. All we can do is be very clear about it, and request that because our guests know this before booking, that they do not leave a negative review based on something we cannot control or change. Thank you for your understanding with this. Most of our guests have given us glowing reviews "The best place I've stayed in for my entire 3,000 mile road trip," etc. I promise you will adore our place, including our peaceful and serene backyard. But if busy streets are an issue, please don't book our place.

Uber or Lyft are your best bet if you don’t bring a car. It is about a $10 Uber ride to downtown. Feel complimentary to use our grass to turn your car around on. Being on a busy street, it’s easier to pull onto the street when facing forward.

Getting the best rental home experience:

How to get the best rental home value:

  • Summer time is high season in Charleston. Reserve your Charleston area vacation in the Fall or Spring to enjoy gorgeous weather while saving money and avoiding crowds. Many vacationers use this strategy to find larger homes within budget, or to reserve an oceanfront rental that would otherwise be unavailable during the Summer.
  • In the Charleston area area, The earlier you can book, the easier your search will be. The best rental homes are reserved very early. Booking your vacation home six to twelve months before your travel dates is recommended. Holidays such as Christmas and Thanksgiving are excellent times to plan and reserve your vacation rental.
  • Veterans and Active Duty Military members may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property management company or host whether your group qualifies for a special rate.
  • Property management companies usually offer renters an option to obtain trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which commonly costs 1% - 5% of the stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for days missed as a result of medical-related emergencies or weather, as well as evacuation costs or charges, such as an unanticipated hotel overnight or extra gasoline expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask the property owner for additional information.
  • Often, property management companies supply Charleston area area travel guides which often include special offers, either offered independently by local businesses, or by way of a partnership between the property management company and the business itself. You can also find visitors guide and coupon books at local gas stations and shopping centers.

Use filters to narrow your rental search:

  • Choose your vacation dates and max budget.
  • Determine how many bedrooms and what type of bedroom configuration your family requires. Clean, Private Guesthouse-9 min. to Downtown Charleston, 15 min. to FollyBeach! has 1 bedrooms and 1 bathrooms.
  • Precise descriptions of bedrooms and bed counts & types is commonly available on booking websites. If you don't see them listed, email or call the property owner before booking the home. Remember that most properties list the maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in living rooms.
  • If there's a specific Charleston area beach you simply love, search for homes that are either nearby, or those that cater especially to your needs.
  • Appropriate accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for guests with disabilities. .
  • Do your family pets travel with you? Many vacation homes allow animals, but guidelines and restrictions apply. Type of pet, size and breeds may be limited. Make sure to ask before booking, and study your rental agreement! Pet fees or might be applied to your contract.

More tips for your visit:

  • Review arrival and departure procedures before traveling. Save the directions to your phone, and take a printed backup.
  • During arrival, record any issues with the property and immediately alert the host. Keep records of all coorespondence.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a garage door opener, television set or thermostat. Contact your owner. They are there to help! A brief text message prevents many difficulties.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like loud vacationers disrupting your home life. Employ the golden rule for best judgement. Happy residents may even recommend great restaurants and places you would've never otherwise known!
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Local residents can often help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to see a beautiful sunrise or sunset, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for crabbing?
  • Ensure you protect the rental owner (and your things!) by locking the property when you are away, just like you would at home.
  • Re-check the property to make sure that you've packed all of your belongings on check-out day. Re-check bathrooms, garages, and back yards for hidden treasure. Clean out the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Go through the property a final time and scan for any damage. We advise walking through with the host whenever you can (often this isn't possible). If the property manager isn't available, ensure that you take photographs of the rental to record its condition.
  • Leave a review! Hosts rely on good feedback to drive more reservations. They'll be much obliged for your feedback. Alternatively, if something wasn't right, other vacationers will appreciate that you share your feedback and help them have the best future vacation. Be fair with your review. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the manager had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded reasonably to fix it.
