Hello fellow travelers! My wife and I have been living here in Charleston for 3 years and feel its the best place either of us ever called home. We love hosting to allow others to come and enjoy this island area we have come to love. My wife Christine has been a flight attendant with Delta for over 18 years and recently retired. I have recently escaped the corporate world and do handy man work around the islands to stay busy. We moved here from Atlanta where we lived for over 25 years and wouldn't live anywhere else! There are so many fun things to do here, we never get bored!
Ken purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Ken chose Charleston
The property is in a great area on James Island on a quiet cul-de-sac. Just minutes to the beach or minutes to downtown Charleston. You will have plenty of privacy and will enjoy a relaxing atmosphere here at the cottage. You will have a private entrance and plenty of privacy. That's why we have so many couples stay here and escape the hustle and bustle of daily life. It's quiet here, but only minutes to shopping, bars, restaurants and charming downtown Charleston.
What makes this Cottage unique
The property has a pool, sun deck, hammocks, fire pit, music, a unique garden shower with lots of privacy.

The cottage was a perfect place to spend our vacation. Excellent location and fantastic hosts.
I would definitely recommend this place to others and would stay here again. The amenities were great. We felt very at home. The outdoor shower was amazing. It was great to have access to the pool and the other outdoor amenities. Ken and his family were extremely hospitable. Their pups were super sweet as well. The cottage is right between downtown and the beach, so you get the best of both worlds. You are also minutes away from really good restaurants on James Island and an awesome movie theater. Anyone looking for a relaxing stay, a great location, and warm and friendly hosts should stay here.
Thanks for the nice review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay with us and please come back to see us again!
Absolutely perfect solo getaway!
The hosts were so friendly! I felt as welcome as family.
I walked onto the property and got tears in my eyes because it was EXACTLY what I wanted... a wee beach house, safe, quiet and secluded. So many little touches like beach chairs and towels to use, local papers, comfy pillows, lists of good restaurants.
Folly Beach is a 15 minute drive at most.
Downtown Charleston is 15 minutes the other way!
It is a small place, and I say that in a good way. Solo travel or a pair used to sharing a bed will be happiest here, as there is only one bed and a loveseat.
Although the porch hammock looked very inviting!
The outdoor shower was more luxurious than an indoor marble one. Such a tropical feel, almost mischievous being able to feel a breeze.
My only regret in leaving an awesome review is that it will cause more people to visit and then it will be booked when I want to go!
Kokomo Cottage was perfect.
Since we were so close to the beaches, it was great to have all the necessary beach supplied available. Beach towels, boogie boards, chairs, etc. Kiawah Beach was fabulous! The cottage is definitely small, but there was so much to do in the area that we weren't there a lot. The outdoor shower was unique-loved it-but glad I knew beforehand. Terrific couples romantic retreat!
The property was as expected. Clean, accommodating and more!
We loved the cozy cottage and its location!! It was perfect for our weekend!!! We hated we didn’t get to use the pool, but time and weather didn’t allow for that, maybe next time!!!
We had an amazing experience! Ken was a great host and the location was fantastic. Would definitely stay again when I'm in the area.
From the moment we arrived, we felt welcome, comfortable and relaxed. Close enough to downtown Charleston & Folly Beach for day trips, plenty to do, but take a day to rest & relax by the pool. Lots of restaurants nearby, hosts were very helpful in pointing us in the right direction! Loved the outdoor shower! Highly recommend, and will hopefully have a chance to visit again.
Carriage rides and historic walking tours along with ghost tours and jet ski tours are all available downtown!
