About the property

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.

Family loved the home, area and the hospitality of the owners! We can see ourselves back there for another vacation. This home helped us to relax with the great accommodations and feel of being home away from home. Thank you for a wonderful time!!!

Absolutely Beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely beautiful! It had all the amenities you could ask for. The home was more beautiful in person than in pictures. It was well decorated and very clean. We had a special basket of goodies waiting on us when we arrived. We really enjoyed our stay here and definitely will be back. If your looking for a peaceful vacation this was the place. The porch was amazing! We enjoyed it so much we didn’t want to leave. Thank you for a great vacation!

This place is a jewel!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! Everything we needed for a great stay was right here. The house was clean, the grounds well kept, attention to detail- unimaginable. They even provided dog waste bags! If we are in the area again- my family says we will stay here! Great area... Great time... Great house...

Lovely, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

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.
