About this Property
- Sleeps 3
- 1 Bedrooms
- 1 Bathrooms
- Private vacation home
- Approximately 220 square feet
Our tiny home tries really hard to be as amazing as the cedar tree it sits next to. It even dressed itself in fancy cedar siding and lathered itself with tung oil. And although its efforts may have failed (it s hard to top mother nature), a definite theme has been born. Runner-up names supplied Hail Cedar! and 20,000 Leagues Beneath the Cedar.

The bicycles are especially great, because there are a few eateries and a music venue within a leisurely five min. ride. More on that later. Now, onto the home:
It s tiny! But it doesn t feel that way. The light color of the bamboo floor, the many windows and the high ceilings help to open it up. The loft holds a queen-sized bed, which sits low to the floor on tatami mats. There is a full bath with a rain-down shower, air vent, and cloth curtain door. There is a entirely functional kitchen, with gas stove and microwave. There is a desk/table and a very comfortable futon couch that opens to sleep an (additional) adult or two kids (who are very welcome). The futon, when pulled out, measures 82” x 45.”
Conveniences for daily living abound: fast wi-fi; soaps, towels & bed linens; cookware; electrical kettle; coffee maker and french press; a selection of teas, Trader Joe s dark roast coffee; wine glasses and a wine opener, champagne glasses, pepper grinder, kosher salt, olive oil, honey, etc. If you are in need of anything, just ask!
The home sits on the front left corner of our property and is surrounded on three sides by a privacy fence. The front faces the driveway, which is where you'll pull up and park (left side). In effect, because of the tall fence, guests have an entire property to themselves. Next to the home there is a patio with rocking chairs, and a spot for a hammock (which is included). There is also a lean-to shed, housing the bicycles and beach items. The home key is in a lock box mounted near the front door; we'll share the code before your arrival.

Tricks and tips to get the perfect vacation home experience:
Sticking to a spending plan:
- Summer months are the most expensive season in coastal SC. Book your Charleston area rental in the Fall or Spring shoulder seasons to enjoy warm weather while saving money and avoiding crowded roads, restaurants, and activities. Many vacationers use this strategy to reserve larger homes, or to reserve an oceanfront vacation rental that would otherwise be unavailable or unaffordable during the Summer. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a Charleston area vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday on the coast? Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years are great times to gather with loved ones at your favorite beach.
- In the Charleston area area, The sooner you can reserve a vacation rental, the better your selection will be. The most desirable rental properties are booked early. Reserving your rental home up to twelve months before your vacation is recommended. Holiday gatherings are excellent times to search for and reserve your vacation home.
- Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective host whether your vacationing group qualifies for a price reduction.
- Property management companies usually offer renters an option to add trip insurance. Trip insurance, which generally will cost you anywhere between 1% - 5% of the booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for days missed as a result of personal medical-related issues or weather disasters, as well as ensuing additional evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected hotel stay or extra fuel expenses. Trip insurance can be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask the property owner for details.
- Many property management companies and vacation rental houses supply Charleston area area travel guide magazines which will include special deals, either offered independently 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 and coupon books at local shops and grocery stores.
Narrow your rental Search:
- First and foremost, have your group commit to trip dates and a maximum budget.
- Note the number bedrooms and the configuration your family needs. The Cedar House Rules has 1 bedrooms and 1 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our vacation rental search.
- Precise information regarding bedrooms and bed types is normally available online. If they are not listed, reach out to the property management company before booking the home. Remember that most properties list maximum guest capacity, which frequently includes sofa beds. You will need to establish what bed configuration is right for your family.
- Does your family require special amenities? Most rental search websites include search filters for amenities. Use these to your advantage to find the perfect rental home.
- Suitable accessibility can make or ruin a vacation for persons with disabilities. Confirm all required amenities are available before reserving a rental.
- Some rentals allow pets, but others do not. Allowable types of pet, size and breeds may be restricted, and additional fees may apply. Ask the host about pet restrictions before booking.
Know before you go:
- Add the owner's contact information to your smartphone. Take a copy of arrival/departure procedures.
- To make certain damages aren't linked to your stay, inspect for any problem areas when you arrive. E-mail the host immediately to relay any damages. If there is a dispute about legal responsibility later, having a record of issues and contact attempts will be very helpful.
- Property managers are available to help! Don't be shy to ask any questions before, during, or after your stay.
- Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like unpleasant visitors bothering your peaceful home. Employ the golden rule for best judgement. Happy residents may even recommend great restaurants and attractions you would have not otherwise known about!
- Don't forget to... Ask a local resident! Locals can typically help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to order the best nachos, have a great night out, or the best spots for fine dining?
- Lock your vacation home while you're away. Keep your property safe!
- Re-check every room of the vacation property to confirm that you've packed all personal items on check-out day. Make sure to check bathrooms, garages, and back yards for hidden treasure. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
- Please make sure to walk through the rental one final time and keep an eye out for damages to contents or the property itself. We suggest walking through with the property manager whenever you can (often this isn't possible). If the property manager is not available, ensure that you take pictures of the rental to record its condition.
- Leave feedback! Property owners rely on great ratings to propel new reservations. They'll be much obliged for your review. Alternatively, if something wasn't as described, other vacationers will be thankful you shared your review find their best vacation home. Remember to be objective. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the host could control the issue, and if so, whether they responded expeditiously to fix it.
