Whether exploring our gorgeous historic city (6mi north) or splashing in the ocean (7mi east), you can’t go wrong with a stay here on James Island, a appealing barrier island of Charleston. We've prepared a private space in our pet and smoke-complimentary home which includes one bedroom with a comfortable queen bed, a full bath with shower/tub and a cozy TV lounge that offers a breakfast/work table and a coffee station with mini-refrigerator and microwave. You’ll find your rooms to be immaculately clean & fresh.

Do you prefer the City or the Beach? We’ll take BOTH!

If you’re ready for a anxiety-complimentary adventure in the “Low Country” of South Carolina you’ve found the right place! Our home is just over the bridge from historic downtown Charleston.

You can effortlessly spend a day or two exploring our handsome “Holy City”, named for the abundance of church steeples. The average Uber/Lyft fare to get there is just around $10. Bring your walking shoes, because once there, it’s painless to wander in and out of stores, alleys, pubs, gardens, museums and along the historic waterfront. Old Town Charleston is relatively compact, so a car isn’t really necessary. And if you need a break from walking there’s always a pedi-cab ready to carry you to your next destination.

Or…you can head for the ocean and discover Folly Beach, just 7 miles east and roughly $15 for a 20 min. Uber/Lyft ride. Folly is our laid-back coastal beach community, dubbed the “Edge of America” by locals. It is an active beach town with plenty of stores, eateries and music to keep you entertained, along with a beautiful coastline and plenty of sandy beach for sunbathing, swimming or walking.

So, you see? Whether you’re looking for a historical, cultural, educational, musical, theatrical or gastronomical adventure or you just want to kick back, build sand castles, splash in the water, eat some great seafood and listen to beach music, you can’t go wrong!

We’re also within a half hour to 45-min. drive from Mt. Pleasant, West Ashley and Johns, Wadmalaw, Seabrook and Kiawah Islands!

Want to kick your relaxation up a notch? Then arrangements can be made for an in-home therapeutic Swedish massage by a Licensed Massage Therapist. Please make this request during our initial communications.

Enter through our front door ~ just like you live here! There are no keys to find or keep track of ~ just your private lock code for the keyless entry. The scent from an aromatherapy diffuser will create your first impression as you enter. Your space is blocked off by sliding, locked doors, and we use an alternate entry when guests are visiting, so you will appreciate a completely private experience.

We strive to create an eco-friendly suite, using natural, chemical-complimentary products for cleaning and laundering. The toothpaste, soaps and shampoo/conditioner supplied are chemical-complimentary as well.

You are welcome to sit outside on our front porch and watch the world go by. There are two chairs and a side table for your comfort. The only requirement is that you must wave to our neighbors as they go by walking their doggies…

TV Parlor:
Unwind and have your morning drink in our TV lounge. We've supplied the coffee/tea bar with the supplies necessary to make your stay comfortable. The Keurig-like coffee maker is fast and hot and “pods” are included. You’ll find fresh filtered water in the refrigerated Brita pitcher. The microwave accepts for quick heat-ups for your drinks or any food you may choose to bring in. Our guests use these items frequently to prepare simple meals. There’s also a popcorn popper for those late-nighttime hunger pangs.

We provide you with bottled water, coffee and tea and all the plates, bowls, coffee cups, drinking glasses, silverware, silverware and towels you should need as well as salt, pepper, popcorn, raw sugar, cocoa and local honey.

Grocery stores, gas station markets, liquor stores, Walgreens and plenty of varied eateries are within 1 to 3 miles for any other vacation cravings.

You’ll have a Samsung 34” flat panel TV in the lounge. We use HD Antennas to pull in our 13 local TV stations and ROKU for many more interesting tv and movie options, along with Netflix. (there’s no cable tv). Wifi 5G is available. And if you want to unplug, we’ve added books and games to the mix ~ there’s even a yoga mat if you feel so inclined!

The couch in this room folds open to become a twin sized bed. Extra linens, blankets pillows and pillowcases for the couch are furnished. There’s a breakfast/work table with two dining chairs and an additional side chair for your comfort.

The closet in the TV Parlor can be used for your storage while visiting. There are also folding chairs, a modest cooler and a beach bag with bamboo mats, towels and swim noodles for two to relax at Folly Beach during your stay.

We keep the temperature at 71 during the day and 68 at nighttime. Ceiling fans are overhead for added comfort.

The Suite:
Your suite consists of the front entryway and hallway, one bedroom with a queen sized bed, a tv lounge with coffee station and couch that folds out to a twin sized bed and a full bathroom with shower/tub. You'll find everything needed for a short or long stay; a ideal getaway for business or enjoyment travelers.

You’ll find your rooms to be immaculately clean and fresh. Ours is a pet- and smoke-complimentary home. We’ll also do our best to keep cooking smells to a minimum during your stay.

The Neighborhood:
In 1979 our cozy home was constructed as the model home for this well-established residential community. Our home is a legally allowed short term rental property with off-street parking alongside our driveway. You’ll notice Spanish moss-covered live oaks lining many of the streets along your drive.
We expect our guests to be respectful of our home and neighbors and we will enforce the home rules of no events, amplified music or loud noises and no smoking. Any breach of the home rules will result in a forfeit of your security deposit in full.
We live in a safe and peaceful neighborhood which is great for morning and evening walks or runs. And if you’re a run/walker we’re in the middle of numerous beautiful locations for longer treks; the James Island County Park, West Ashley Greenway, Ft. Lamar Heritage Preserve and Sunrise Park…but more on that later…
Charleston is a foodie town. It’s difficult to find a bad meal here because there is such intense competition amongst the area eateries. So eat up! Within 3 miles you can find BBQ, Bagels, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Greek, Mexican, Burgers, Seafood and they’re all locally owned, non-chain, yumminess!
And if you want to hit the gym after all that food, there’s Golds Gym, O2 Exercise, Pivotal Exercise, Orange Theory and Cross Fit James Island somewhere down the road.

Transportation:
Uber and Lyft are everywhere these days and so, available for your vacation needs as well. The average Uber fee from our home to the Charleston International Airport (18mi / 30min) usually runs about $30. A trip to Folly Beach (7mi / 20min) is roughly $15 and to downtown Charleston (6mi / 11min) is just around $10. Uber Eats is also available for food delivery!

Though there are no traditional hop-on, hop-off bus tours in Charleston, they do have a complimentary city trolley called the CARTA DASH Trolley. These travel through the historic part of Charleston, accepting you to to see much of what you would on the other guided tours, though without any commentary. However, if you use their Self-Guided Tour of Historic Charleston during your ride, you’ll never know the difference!

There are 3 different routes that the trolley takes:
• Route 210 (Orange) drives from College of Charleston to the Aquarium.
• Route 211 (Green) will take you to the waterfront, Old Exchange & Provost Dungeon, and City Market
• Route 213 (Purple) connects Brittlebank Park and Riley Stadium to the historic city center.

Each of these routes meet at the Visitors Center, Marion Park and Charleston Museum. Maps are available at each of these locations. You can search Free Tours By Foot for more information.

We've always got our ears perked for new/better/interesting information to offer our guests. There will be maps, brochures, menus, promos and the latest City Paper in your lounge when you arrive.

Please Note: While I typically do not meet my guests, due to my work schedule, I am available via text and quick to respond in an efficient manner to your requests, questions or needs.

We look forward to having you as our guests!

Strategies to get the best rental home experience:

When to visit & When to book:

  • The earlier your group can book a rental home, the easier your search will be. The most desirable rental homes are booked very early. Reserving your vacation rental up to twelve months before your vacation dates is recommended. Holidays such as Christmas and Thanksgiving are excellent times to plan and reserve your vacation rental.
  • To book the most suitable vacation home within your budget, we suggest reserving in the Spring or Fall. You'll benefit from lower rental rates, greater selection, gorgeous weather and the absence of large crowds at your favorite restaurants and activities. Many vacationers use this strategy to find larger homes within budget, or to book an oceanfront rental that would otherwise be unavailable during June, July, and August.
  • Some hosts and property managers offer discounts or promotional rates for veterans and active duty military. Remember to ask your property manager if special offers are available for your group before you book.
  • Booking websites usually offer renters an option to obtain trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which will generally cost anywhere between 1% - 5% of the reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any days missed as a result of personal medical-related emergencies or weather, as well as evacuation costs, such as an unexpected hotel stay or additional gas expenses. Trip insurance can be a a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your host for details.
  • Many rental management companies supply Charleston area area visitor guide magazines which often include money-saving offers, either offered directly by local businesses, or through a partnership between the property management company and the business itself. You can also find Charleston area visitors guide magazine and coupon books at local grocery stores, shopping centers, and visitor centers.

Finding the perfect vacation rental in Charleston:

  • Start by selecting the best vacation week and a maximum budget.
  • Note the number beds and the configuration your group requires. Relax in Your Own Private Suite in Charleston's James Island! has 1 bedrooms and 1 bathrooms.
  • Specific descriptions of bedrooms and bed counts is generally accessible on booking websites. Otherwise, reach out to the property management company before reserving the rental. Remember that most property listings specify the max. guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in living rooms. You will need to work out what is best for your vacation.
  • If your family is bringing pets, you'll need to search for a rental that allows animals. Request specifics on breed, weight, and type requirements. Be aware that some property managers charge pet deposits and fees.
  • If there's an individual Charleston area destination you love, look for properties that are either nearby, or those that cater especially to your desires.
  • Appropriate accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for guests with disabilities. Remember to confirm all necessary amenities are available and included before booking

More tips for your stay:

  • Take a copy of the property manager's phone number and arrival/departure procedures for your rental home. Put the manager's information in your smartphone and wallet.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a garage door opener, stereo or washer/dryer. Contact your owner. They are there to help! A brief phone call prevents quite a few problems.
  • Ensure you protect the owner (and your things!) by locking the rental when you are out, just like you would back home.
  • To ensure that damages aren't attributed to your family's stay, inspect for any problem areas during arrival. Contact the property manager right away to record any issues. If there is a dispute, having the recorded concerns and contact attempts will be very helpful.
  • Respect the neighborhood. Often, surrounding homes are occupied by local residents. Respecting late-night noise limits and parking regulations is the right thing to do.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Neighbors can usually help. Who better to ask where to grab the best tacos, have a great night out, or the best spots for shopping?
  • Don't leave anything behind! Just before departing, take a walk through the property to make sure you've collected all personal belongings. Make sure to check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden treasure. Clean the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Walk through the rental a final time and keep an eye out for any damage. We recommend walking through with the property manager whenever you can (often this isn't possible). If the manager is not available, ensure that you take photos of the rental to record its condition at check-out.
  • Did you have a terrific vacation? Most rental home management companies make it easy for travelers to provide feedback. If your rental property and/or property manager was fantastic, they would love to hear about it. If anything was out of order and they failed to correct it reasonably, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make a note as part of your feedback.
