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.

Lovely, comfortable home
Perfect vacation home-very comfortable and had everything we needed. Access to beautiful swimming pool. Beach toys, beach chairs and beach towels provided meant we didn’t have to pack those items from home! Loved the large fully screened in back porch. We appreciated the basket of goodies we found in the kitchen to welcome us. Would recommend this home to anyone staying in the Charleston area.
Wonderful, Comfortable and inviting!
We loved this two bedroom cottage. We planned a family picnic and the owners brought us extra chairs and tables so I didn't have to bring those with us. The front porch is a great place to hang and relax. We enjoyed the firepit and a swim in the pool! We had everything we needed. It was only about a 10-15 drive to the nearest grocery store and about 30 minutes to Charleston.
We loved our stay at this beautiful location. The owners were great and the home/property was awesome. We look forward to returning in the near future.
Absolutely amazing home!!!!!!!!
From the moment we walked in the door we felt like we were home. The owners have done every possible thing to make this rental absolutely perfect! The welcome basket of goodies was a very nice treat! The house is immaculately clean and we loved the layout. The kitchen has every thing that you could possibly need and we actually ate most of our dinners at the house because we loved it so much. The back screen porch is the perfect spot to relax. The bed was the most comfortable bed and the shower was awesome. We loved going to see the koi fish and swans! We were blessed to get to go out on a boat ride with the owners and it was a highlight of our trip! We even got to see a dolphin! The owners are wonderful and so kind!!! We honestly both said that we would love to live in this house. It was nice to be able to have a beautiful and quiet home to relax and enjoy. We are so glad that we chose this home and we would love to come back again.This is the nicest home that we have rented. There is a good BBQ restaurant that just opened about ten minutes from the home. It is called the Swig and Swine. We got our food to go because we loved the house so much! IF you are looking for a gorgeous home in a quiet area, book this home now. Everything was perfect about this home and I can not say enough good about it. Loved this home!!!!!!!!!
Beautiful property! Peaceful and relaxing!
Very clean and cozy home! The owners have made the property feel like "home". The bed was comfortable! The screened in porch was great for relaxing outdoors. Our favorite time was being able to fish on the property! While fishing we were entertained by watching the swans and geese. We look forward to a return trip!
Total, complete package. They’ve thought of everything!
The property was beautiful & well maintained. We loved the beautifully decorated guest house & opening the door to find a welcome basket full of great snacks & wine. We enjoyed sitting on the screened-in porch & having wine watching the sun set. We would definitely recommend this to our friends traveling to Charleston but want to stay out of the hustle bustle of the city.
