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.

My wife and I loved our stay. Everything is in great condition and its an incredible value considering what you get. The beds were comfy, the fireplace was warm, and the hosts were great and were very responsive. The welcome snacks in the house when we got there were such a nice touch. We would highly recommend it to others
Perfect place to get away!
The Guest House was perfect for our stay. Brenda has thought of everything to make your stay wonderful. The house is very nice and we really enjoyed our stay. We would highly recommend it to anyone. Our dogs had plenty of room to play outside.
Cozy, quiet, well equipped house outside of Charleston
This is a cozy house in excellent condition in the low country outside of Charleston. We spent a long winter weekend in the house and had a great time hiking in the area and visiting nearby restaurants. The Awendaw Passage on the Palmetto trail is nearby and great for hiking. The attention to detail in the house was amazing, making it extremely comfortable! The hosts provided everything we needed and more. During our stay, we enjoyed cooking several breakfasts and a couple of dinners in the well equipped kitchen. Even though it rained almost all of one of the days we spent there, we were comfortable in front of the fireplace, sampling from the welcome basket until we ventured out for a walk and fish dinner on Isle of Palms. We want to return when the weather warms up to take advantage of the other perks – bikes, kayaks, pool, etc.
Wonderful amenities but a little far out.
The property was wonderful and just as described. The only drawback was the proximity to Charleston.
Lovely Guest Home
This is a lovely guest home with everything you need for a wonderful getaway. I would rate It right there with some of the other top notch places I have stayed.
Fantastic property, we had a wonderful time and this location was perfect for exploring the greater Charleston area. This house was absolutely perfect for our group and so much nicer than any hotel we could have stayed at. So many little touches that made for a perfect stay and still affordable for all of us to enjoy. Thank you!!!
