This home is located in a small community in the middle of the Francis Marion Forest. Enjoy the quiet of this Forest community while still being close to shopping (20 min.), Isle of Palms and Sullivan's Island Beaches (30 min.) and the heart of downtown Charleston (33 min.). This home was completely remodeled and furnished with 100% new furnishings in 2017. In addition to the 1200 sq. ft. of living space this house has a 750 sq. ft. furnished screened in porch that runs the entire length of the house. The house includes tiled baths, new hardwood floors throughout, a gas fireplace, and a granite counter top work station equipped with a full size computer monitor, wireless keyboard/mouse and printer. The owners live at the back of this 8 acre property and invite tenants to join them (in season) for their regular 7:00 PM feedings of their large domestic and Japanese koi that reside in a large pond at the back of the property... not to mention the pond is also full of large mouth bass and bream. Tenants are welcome to fish in this pond at any time using the bait and tackle the owners have available at the property. The tenants also have access to 3 kayaks (2 touring and 1 fishing) that can be used on the nearby Quinby creek (5 miles North) and/or the Wando River (5 miles South) of the property. In addition, two bikes along with a car bike carrier are available. The bikes can be used to ride anywhere in the lowcountry... the trails of the Forest, streets of historic Charleston, and/or the beach communities of Isle of Palms, Sullivan's Island and Folly Beach. The owners have a bamboo fence enclosed private swimming pool that can be used by the tenants at any time. The owners also like to garden and have a raised-bed garden on the property which contains flowers, vegetables and herbs. When in season, tenants are welcome to enjoy all the produce in the garden to make meals or brighten up the home with floral bouquets. This home also has a small deck off of the screened-in porch that can be used to sit and relax, grill out on the gas grill or enjoy a real fire in the fire pit (wood is furnished by the owner). Last but not least, the owners own a Bayliner Element xr7 that is docked at the Wando River Marina (5 miles from property). For a contribution towards gas to take the boat out on the water, tenants can arrange for the owners to take them on a sunset cruise during the week or take them out on a weekend to enjoy dolphin watching, fishing/crabbing, or tubing.

                                                              This place is like coming home, all the amenities you would want to consider. The hosts are very nice and they left us treats to set a welcoming tone right off the bat!! Our dog enjoyed exploring the area and the screened in porch. We enjoyed our stay and only wish we were able to stay longer. Would definitely return and highly recommend this lovely home.

                                                              This house was amazing. We loved everything about this property. I’ve stayed at many high end properties but none surpassed this one. Highly recommend. First and foremost, the beds were the best I’ve slept in. Unbelievably comfortable. The decor and all furnishings are beautiful. Very clean property. Well manicured lawn. And Owners are amazing too. Very nice and quick to respond. The property very secluded (which we loved) but easy access to whatever you needed. We dropped our pet off at camp bow wow in the morning and spent the whole day exploring and picked him up at 7 on the way home each day. 3 days for $45 and 10 minutes from the house and my pet loved the companionship and play time with other dogs. It worked great for us.

                                                              Couldn’t ask for anything more!!

                                                              Without visiting, you just can’t describe how picture perfect this house is!!

                                                              The photos and description don’t do it justice. The owners have thought of everything: coffee and creamers to spices and soaps! The house is immaculate and well decorated. The entire location is picturesque and welcoming.

                                                              The owners are friendly and helpful without being intrusive. We are already looking forward to our next visit and plan to stay longer than just a weekend!

                                                              great place for Vacation

                                                              great two bd house. very cute and comfort. The owners are so sweet.highly recommend.

                                                              Peaceful, thoughtful, clean

                                                              We really enjoyed our two night stay. Our family of 6 (2 adults, 4 children) were able to fit just right into the house. We came to see Charleston and its surroundings, but were grateful the house was out just a bit from the congestion and traffic. We were able to enjoy peaceful evenings and mornings around the house, aided by the EXCELLENT kitchen and screened in porch for meals. The owners are gracious and really thought of everything you need--it's just in the right place. Also, there is no problem brining your family dog. Highly recommend!

                                                              Don't look any further!

                                                              I looked at countless properties before deciding on this one. I didn't regret it for a second. The property is in excellent condition- appears to be all newly renovated and updated. The owners have thought of everything. I have stayed in VRBO's that are "stocked" but this one truly is. They provided towels, umbrellas, robes, extra blankets, and staples for cooking. They even provided laundry detergent and fabric softener. I wish we would have been able to stay longer. The location was set off from the busy part of town, but it was easy to get around. I think we were an easy 25 minutes from downtown Charleston and 20 minutes or so from the beach. If you are trying to decide on a place you shouldn't hesitate to choose this one. It comes with many extras. The owners have a home on the property and are accessible if needed. The home is safe and secure. If we get down there again (and hopefully can stay longer and have the weather be warmer), this is where we will stay without hesitation. Thank you for the hospitality! You should be proud of your wonderful place!
