About this Property

  • Sleeps 8
  • 3 Bedrooms
  • 4 Bathrooms
  • Private vacation home
  • Approximately 3000 square feet

Cottage End is a roomy, family vacation home I constructed for my kids and their kids. As a lifelong wood worker, I've filled the home with cherry and maple cabinets and ash floors with cherry accents, and exposed rafters under the cypress ceilings.

We're located on a narrow dirt road that has Clark Sound for a backdrop. We're on a dead end street so we have very little and very slow traffic. Most of the dirt (sand) street is single wide so neighbors readily pull over to let each other pass.

Cottage End has three bedrooms, each with it's own bathroom and a half bath in the laundry room downstairs.. The home sleeps 8 people comfortably. The master bedroom has a king bed. The master is downstairs and has an "open" shower with no curb or curtain. While it was not designed and constructed for a "handicap shower" it goes a long way in qualifying as Handicapped. There is also a long (6 foot) soaking tub. The two upstairs bedrooms each have a queen bed and a twin bed. One of the upstairs bedrooms also has a full size infant bed. One of my favorite things at Cottage End is the kitchen. With cherry cabinets all around, the huge island contains the gas range and the island has seating on two sides. Cooking shrimp and grits while my family and friends around the island appreciate a glass of wine and conversation is my idea of a good time. We also have a screened porch in the rear. WIFI is available.

We're located on James Island and it's 12 mins. to Folly Beach and 14 mins. to downtown Charleston. Also, we're less than 10 mins. from James Island County Park where there are walking/cycling trails, a climbing wall, dog park, and water park that the kids appreciate. Also, there is a complimentary water spray park for the little kids.

In considering renting my home, please be aware that I do not allow any events, receptions, or other events that brings in multiple people and cars. My parking is limited and the neighbors do not savor sizable, loud events on this peaceful street. I also do not allow family pets

In the rear of my home is a one bedroom apartment that is rented to a group of friends from my home city, Greenville, SC. So, you might see a car parked on the right side of the home. There are multiple people in this group and sometimes they take advantage of their scheduled time and sometimes they don't. If you see one and have some questions about activities and places to eat, say hello. They'll be glad to answer your questions.

About the Area

Getting the best vacation property experience:

Finding the best rental value:

  • Summer months are high season in the Charleston area area. Reserve your rental home in Fall or Spring to get the benefit of gorgeous weather while saving money and avoiding crowds. Many vacationers use this method to reserve larger homes, or to reserve a beach front rental that would otherwise be unaffordable during the Summer months.
  • Reserve your vacation home as early as possible. Rental schedules often become available twelve months in advance (or in September just after Summertime ends). Many groups reserve their Summer rentals during Christmas and Thanksgiving gatherings. Book before these holidays for best selection.
  • Property management companies sometimes offer discounts for veterans. Ask your host or property manager if special offers are available for your family.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners frequently offer guests an option to purchase vacation insurance protection. Trip insurance, which normally costs between 1% - 5% of the booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any missed time as a result of personal medical-related catastrophes or weather disasters, as well as ensuing additional evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected hotel overnight or extra gasoline expenses. Trip insurance might be a a welcome relief if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for details.
  • Often, rental management companies supply Charleston area area visitors guides which include special offers, either offered directly by local businesses, or by way of a partnership between the management company and the business itself. You can also find Charleston area visitors guide magazine and coupon books at local shops and grocery stores.

Planning and choosing the perfectrental home:

  • Choose a group leader, choose your trip dates, and select a max budget.
  • Determine how many beds and the bed configuration your group needs. Cottage End, A Low-Country Island Home has 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our rentals search.
  • Specific descriptions of bedrooms and bed counts is generally accessible online. If they are not listed, contact the property management company before you reserve the vacation home. Remember that most properties list maximum guest capacity, which frequently includes pull out couches in living rooms.
  • Is your family looking for particular amenities? Most rental search websites include search filters for amenities. Filtering by amenity will allow you to quickly find the perfect rental.
  • Suitable accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for the less-mobile. .
  • Remember to include your furry companions! Many vacation homes allow animals, but guidelines and restrictions apply. Allowable pet type, breed, and size are often limited. Ask your property manager before booking, and study your agreement! Additional fees or applied to your invoice.

More tips for your visit:

  • Get the property manager's phone number and check in/check out procedures for your rental property. Put the manager's contact information in your smartphone and wallet.
  • To make sure that no damages are attributed to your visit, inspect the rental for any problem areas during check in. Call the rental manager right away to report your findings. If there is a dispute, having a record of problems and contact attempts will be valuable.
  • Hosts are great sources of help! Feel free to ask questions before, during, or after your stay.
  • Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking restrictions can make a stay significantly more pleasurable. You'll enhance your chance to make local friends, and resident neighbors are often an incredible source for finding the best local beaches and restaurants.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Local residents can typically help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to order the best nachos, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for bird watching?
  • Ensure you protect the property owner (and your stuff!) by locking and securing the home while you are out, just like you would at home.
  • Don't leave anything behind! Before you drive away, take a walk through the rental property to make sure you've collected all personal items. Re-check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden belongings. Clean out the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Please make sure to walk through the property a final time and look for any damage. We advise walking through with the property manager whenever possible. If the property manager is not available, remember to take photographs of the rental to record its condition.
  • Leave feedback! Property managers rely on good feedback to propel future bookings. They'll be thankful for your review. Alternatively, if something wasn't as described, other families will appreciate that you share your experience and help them have the best future vacation. Remember to be objective. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the owner had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded quickly to solve it.
