This is a separate residence from our home. Our home is at the end of the swimming pool. The guest house is the building parallel to the pool connected to the lanai and to the right of the lanai.
Minutes from downtown Charleston, hospitals, airport, plantations and the beach.

Downtown and Folly Beach 15-20 minutes easy drive.
Not to worry, if you are flying in, we will supply you with beach chairs and a cooler - if beach is on you list - but once you see the pool and the resort like atmosphere of the guest house, you will not want to leave.
Quiet neighborhood with giant Southern Live Oak trees.
Private boat ramp in neighborhood - Neighborhood is a small island.

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: We have taken early retirement to enjoy life and travel. Our guest house is a source of pride for us and we work very hard to be good hosts to all our guests. We believe that if you own a property you rent you must be able to stay there as if you lived there full time; otherwise, you should not rent.

                  Why the Owner Chose James Island:
                  We originally built this for a combination pool house and guest house with lanai for entertaining our friends and guests. We have decided to share with others because it is our own little resort. We have had so much fun meeting people from all over the world.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  8 miles to downtown - 15-20 minutes drive time. 15-20 minutes from the airport, outlet shopping, plantations and the beaches. Close to everything without the hassle of everyone. Our neighborhood is very quiet and highly respected area with large Southern Live Oak trees. We have 4 extraordinary ones on our property.
