Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The home is in a beautiful location right on an estuary. The interior is beautifully decorated and the large glass doors that lead to the porch provide a great view of the waterfront. The kitchen is nice size and complete with any dishes or utensils you would need to cook a meal. We absolutely loved this property and will stay here again! We brought our 3 kids and everyone slept comfortably.

We loved the deck area with all the seating areas. Her dog was sweet.

Celia made our stay very easy. She helped us out when we needed to leave a day early. The deck area was so welcoming and we enjoyed our time outside there. It was so peaceful out there. It was nice to be able to go inside with the air conditioning and relax in the nicely decorated living area.

We felt welcomed and comfortable. Celia is a wonderful host!

  • 4 of 5

Although it's an older property, everything felt so welcoming and comfortable. The beds and pillows were wonderful which made relaxing and sleeping in easy to do. We had our family dog, and Celia provided a nice large pillow for her. The view was nice. Celia and Laney were very friendly. We would love to come here again someday. It was a little far to travel multiple times in a day for sightseeing and eating out, but it is perfect for relaxation.

Very lovely!

  • 5 of 5

Celia & Lani were wonderful hosts. We were greeted with beautiful fresh sunflowers and fruit & snacks. The apartment was tidy & cozy and just what we were looking for. The beds are VERY comfortable - so comfortable that we slept in every day. The view from the deck is spectacular! It’s close enough to everything yet far enough out to enjoy peace & serenity. Thank you for opening your home to us.

November by the Abbapoola

  • 5 of 5

This property is the perfect place for me to enjoy the low-country coastal experience. It's nicely located along the Abbapoola Creek with a wonderful view of this marsh area from the back deck, which I spent much time enjoying. The property is owned and operated by Celia Rochford who treated me more like a personal friend than tenant. Her hospitality and friendliness was the 'cherry on top' of this vacation for me. This is now one of my very favorite places to stay, when I think of going to the coast. Thank you Celia!
