  • Private vacation home

Come relax at our gorgeous, freshly refreshed home constructed in the 1930's. This calming, well-designed getaway under live oaks has all the appeal of the old but with all the upgraded, charming features: sizable kitchen, open floor plan, brand new wood floors through out, and enormous master suite. A roomy deck featuring a huge live oak providing a canopy over the serene half acre lot. Walking distance to many eateries/bars, movie theatre, and mins. from downtown Charleston and Folly Beach.
The space
A sizable open kitchen provides the space for many to savor the fun of cooking together. For those that prefer to watch the cooks, there's a huge bar that looks over the kitchen. The home has an open floor plan so just behind the bar is the dining room offering a variety of spots for all to eat together. Off the dining room is huge living room offering two couches and a recliner. There is also a spot next to the large bay window that makes the ideal reading nook! We have three queen sized bedrooms with dressers and ample closet space. The master suite features a tray ceiling and a large TV on the wall. The master bath offers a walk in closet, a large vanity with two sinks and an alcove. There is a half bath just off the hallway next to the laundry room.
Guest access
The property sits on a large half acre lot. In the back of the property is our sister Airbnb: Coastal Cottage. It features a cozy one bedroom bungalow. Guests of Coastal Cottage are at the back of the property and park directly in front of the home. Guests at Live Oak Retreat have ample parking space along the left side of the driveaway and along the side of the deck and carport. The right side of the driveway needs to remain open so Coastal Cottage guests can access their home. We have never had any issues with parking but want to make sure all guests are aware of how to share the parking space.

Strategies for getting the perfect Charleston area vacation home experience:

Get the most from your budget:

  • The earlier your group can reserve a vacation home, the easier your search will be. The most desirable vacation homes are booked very early. Reserving your vacation rental up to twelve months before your vacation is recommended. Holiday gatherings are excellent times to plan and book your vacation rental.
  • Summer months are high season in Charleston. Reserve your vacation home in the Spring or Fall to get the benefit of warm weather while saving money and avoiding crowded roads, restaurants, and activities.
  • Hosts sometimes offer rate reductions for veterans and active duty military. Remember to ask your property manager if special offers are available for your family.
  • Property management companies often offer renters an option to obtain vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which generally will cost you between 1% - 5% of the reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any missed time as a result of medical-related emergencies or weather, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs, such as an unexpected hotel overnight or extra fuel expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your property manager for details.
  • Often, rental management companies and vacation rental houses supply Charleston area area travel guide magazines which include money-saving deals, either offered independently by local businesses, or through a partnership between the rental management company and the business itself. You can also find Charleston area visitors guide magazine and coupon books at local gas stations and shopping centers.

Planning and choosing the rightrental:

  • Select a group lead, select your vacation week, and choose a budget.
  • Decide how many bedrooms and the bed configuration your group needs. Live Oak Retreat has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
  • Precise information about bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is generally available on booking pages. Otherwise, email the host before you book your rental. Note that most listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which often includes pull-out couches and bunk beds. You'll need to establish what bed configuration is best for your family.
  • Do your family pets travel with you? 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 thoroughly! Pet fees or applied to your contract.
  • If there's a particular Charleston area attraction you love, search for homes that are either nearby, or those that cater to your requirements.
  • Suitable accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for those with limited mobility. Confirm all necessary amenities are available and included before reserving a rental.

Tips to have a wonderful stay:

  • Review check in & check out procedures before leaving home. Take a printed copy, and add a note with the instructions to your phone.
  • Ask questions. You may want instructions for a fireplace, elevator or kitchen appliance. Contact your host. They are there to help! A brief text message can prevent quite a few issues.
  • Protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by locking and securing the home while you are gone, just like you would at home.
  • Document any damages to the property upon arrival, and immediately contact the property manager. We specifically recommend e-mails and text messages, as they usually contain time stamps that are beneficial if a dispute arises.
  • Respecting quiet hours and parking restrictions can make a stay more pleasurable. You'll enhance your chance to make local friends, and resident neighbors are usually a fantastic source for finding the best local beaches and restaurants.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Residents can typically point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to find the best bike paths, have a great night out, or the best spots for crabbing?
  • When it's time to leave, take a walk-through to confirm you did not forget anything. Re-check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden items. Clean out the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Inspect the property a final time and look for damages to contents or the property itself. We advise inspecting the property with the property manager whenever you can (often this isn't possible). If the host is not available, remember to take photos and video of the property to record its condition at check-out.
  • Did your family have a great stay? Many vacation rental websites make it easy for travelers to provide reviews. If your rental and/or host was wonderful, they would love to hear about it. If anything was amiss and they failed to correct it in a reasonable manner, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make it a point as part of your review.
