About Ken

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.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Cute cottage

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the Kokomo cottage. We were there at the end of March so the outdoor shower was a bit chilly but if it was warmer outside it would be awesome. We loved using the fire pit at night. We had enough space for all of our things. The location on VBRO looks like the cottage is on Oak Island, much closer to the beach than James Island. Overall, a great place to stay!

Great property and very convenient to Charleston.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. This is a very nice place in a quiet neighborhood. Only minor complaint was that we were not aware that the shower was outside. Not a big deal to us as the weather was nice during our time there, but would have been a problem if the weather was colder. We would definitely stay again if the need arises.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review and we enjoyed having you as one of our many guests here! The garden shower is a unique and well liked feature of our property. Of course there is a guest bathroom and shower inside the main home for anyone that feels it is too cool or if the weather doesn’t allow you to experience the outdoor one at the cottage.

Very cozy. Great romantic setting

  • 5 of 5

Easy access and privacy . and the pool was beautiful. The unique feature of the property was the "outside" shower. It was fun and exhilarating experience. We will definitely be back to this spot again. If they aren't booked up......
