Johns Island house description

Come and experience why Charleston, SC is one of the top vacation destinations in the United States! Our home, complete with swimming pool, is nestled on five acres on historic Johns Island, fifteen minutes to downtown Charleston, and ten minutes to the beaches and golf links on Kiawah Island! Kick up your heels after a day shopping, eating, touring, swimming, and unwind in the peace and quiet of a country setting.

We love our home, and hope you will share it with your friends and/or family! This setting is ideal for holidays, equestrians, or anyone looking for a great travel destination. We are minutes away from Mullet Hall Equestrian Center on Johns Island, and welcome visitors for these events.

Though we love our country retreat, we are not without all of the modern essentials. Our house features a 46' flat screen TV (DIRECTV satellite), DVD, indoor/outdoor audio surround system, and much more. Downstairs features the living room, den, dining room, and large 'keeping room' for dining/socializing. Upstairs includes a master bedroom (queen bed) with en-suite bath, and a washer/dryer in walk-in closet. The second (double) and third (twins) bedrooms are also upstairs and share a full bath with shower/tub.

Our kitchen may be modest, but we have successfully fed dozens of folks for the holidays and backyard BBQ's. The kitchen is equipped with an electric smooth-top cooktop range/oven, microwave, and dishwasher. The back deck has a Weber grill and seating for dining al fresco.

No need to venture too far since Johns Island is not without its share of conveniences. There is the Freshfield's shopping area just minutes down the road on Kiawah Island that has a Newton Farms grocery store, outdoor gear store, wine shop, ABC store, and a dozen more great shops and restaurants. Closer to home on Johns Island is the Piggly Wiggly grocery store (complete with Starbucks), CVS, Post Office, gas stations, and plenty of delicious places to eat like the Fat Hen and Wild Olive restaurants!

We love our pets too and understand not leaving 'friends' behind on vacation; therefore, please contact us to discuss bringing your pets. The house is currently 'For Sale'; therefore we are renting on a limited basis each month. Please check back 30 days before your scheduled arrival to determine availability.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: Jeffrey & Liz Wargo: We have been residents of the Charleston area for over 10 years, eight of which have been here on Johns Island. Recent career opportunities have forced our relocation to Fort Lauderdale, FL; however, we just could not bring ourselves to sell this property. We decided to rent it via VRBO on which we have had great success renting properties ourselves throughout the US and Caribbean. We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do!

              Why the Owner Chose Johns Island:
              We love the peace and quiet of a country setting with the convenience of being close to the city and beaches. Friendly neighbors and Southern charm!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Short distance to historical downtown Charleston as well as Kiawah Island beach (Beachwalker County Park) and Folly Beach.
