Charleston house description
Newly and completely renovated Cape Cod style house features a well appointed kitchen with gas cook top and granite counters. There are hardwood and tile floors throughout the house which includes a formal dining room and office. The large ground floor office has an HDTV, full sofa bed and 1/2 bath and could be used as a fourth bedroom. Master bedroom with king bed and private bath downstairs. Two large bedrooms with a shared bath upstairs - one bedroom with queen and one with twin beds. All rooms have large windows and good natural light throughout.
Located on James Island, this charming, inviting house is in a safe, quiet neighborhood on a street lined with live oaks. It is on an extra wide lot with privacy and plenty of parking on the property - room for parking a boat. The neighborhood is adjacent to the Stono River and Intercoastal Waterway and has a public boat ramp within walking distance from the house. The property is well landscaped with lush mature native plants. Relax with a drink on the screened porch with ceiling fan!
The neighborhood is adjacent to the Charleston City Golf Course, minutes to causeway to Johns Island and Kiawah Island and is less than fifteen minutes to Downtown and Folly Beach.
The house is available for 3-7 day rental, weekly rentals or monthly rentals. It is a great house & location for a relaxing getaway/vacation to the Charleston area. It is ideal for family gathering and small groups who want a quiet, relaxing spot to return after busy days.
It could also be a perfect solution for a temporary need for a furnished home in the Charleston vacinity. If you are relocating to the area and are house hunting or waiting for an escrow to close or have sold a house and need to move out, this would be a comfortable well-equiped home to help with the transition. The house is easily accessible to MUSC and would be a flexible housing solution for out of town patients or family members.

The charm of this house is what drove our decision to stay here and we were not disappointed! We were a group of Moms looking for a weekend get away at a reasonable price, clean facilities, plenty of room and good amenities and this property met all of our needs. We only had one car but there was ample parking for more than one car if needed. The owner left lights on for us since we arrived at night which was great since the street is residential and a little dark. Upon entering we found the house to be clean and very spacious. The office is much larger than it looks from the photos and offered a great space to get work done and could have been an alternate room for kids to watch TV. There are a variety of movies to watch, books to read and take out menus for local restaurants. The house was well stocked with all needed supplies - paper products, plates, cleaning products, hair dryers, shampoo, etc...There were also extra sheets, towels and blankets. The location was very convenient to downtown Charleston taking no more than 20 minutes during low traffic times. There is a Publix, CVS, Starbucks and bagel shop, all nearby so made it very convenient to pick up last minute items and grab a quick breakfast on the way out of town. Instructions were left for operating the TV and DVD player as well as what to do when leaving the property. We really enjoyed our stay and would stay at this property again!

Beautiful House, Great Location
Beautiful House, Great Location
We stayed here with two other couples for a long weekend. The house is beautifully restored and maintained and has wonderful space for cooking and eating, and relaxing both inside and outside. The neighborhood is quiet and conveniently located - about 10 minutes to drive either to downtown Charleston or to Folly Beach. There are stores and restaurants within 5 minutes, including a few locally owned shops and restaurants within walking distance. When we first arrived, the refrigerator was not working. When notified, the owner dealt with it completely and immediately. I don't bring this up to be critical, but rather to point out how conscientious the owners are about providing a good experience for their renters. We highly recommend this location, and definitely hope to go back.

My daughter and I stayed in this beautiful home for a long weekend. The house is completely renovated with large spacious rooms, large bathrooms and plenty of closet space. The kitchen is well appointed. The yard is absolutely gorgeous. We were able to quickly taxi downtown and the drive to the beach took only moments. This is obviously a well cared for home for the owners. Ellen was gracious and took the time to recommend restaurants and local destinations. Many thanks for allowing us to visit your home!

We came to Charleston for an annual girls weekend and are so glad we found this house! It comfortably fit all five of us and was well maintained and clean. One of the biggest perks was it was between downtown Charleston and Folly Beach so about a 15 drive to either. The owners were friendly and easy to work with. I look forward to my next trip to Charleston!

We very much enjoyed our recent trip to Charleston and the rental of this lovely house on James Island. The house is older, but very well renovated, spacious and well equipped. Much of the furniture is antique and very interesting. We particularly enjoyed the screened porch. This home is highly recommended!

We grew up in South Carolina and have immediate family living in the Charleston area. We love historical downtown and the nearby beaches and waterways.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
With family and friends scattered throughout the country, we have hosted numerous reunions. The great weather, restaurants, golfing, sightseeing destinations, and shopping opportunities have provided activities for everyone. We always like to have at least one fishing/boating outing and have out-of- towners discover the water wildlife, marshes and low country waterways.
