About the property

Upstairs area 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths

The property can best be described as a funky tropical / Old Charleston mix. It is like a beach house 2.5 miles from the surf.

There is a nice sitting area outside with brick pavers, table and chairs / swing / benches.

There is a shallow garden fish pool - toddlers should be supervised

A nice deck adjoins the master bedroom and has views of the Old Charleston Lighthouse and ships at sea.

Quirky home just right for two to four adults. Had everything we needed except an updated TV in living room. There are viewing binoculars mounted on the deck off the master bedroom and we spotted a bald eagle in the marsh.

We came down for a concert on Daniel Island, so this was a great location for the beach and concert venue. We will be back and will hope there will be availability to stay at this property again. Thank You for a great experience. The Cannons

Perfect for the Price

  • 5 of 5

First of all, this was a great value. Obviously, if you want something closer to the beach, it's going to be more expensive. It was a 5-minute drive to the beach, and we were able to find free parking along the side of the road both times we went to the beach. It was also a very quick drive to Charleston. The house was clean and the pictures are accurate. There is an old CRT TV in the living room that has a Roku and DISH. There is also a newer flat screen in the master bedroom that had an HDMI port with cable. So you can hook up your device and watch movies. Otherwise, you might need to bring your movies because the Roku was a bit spotty. This wasn't a super chic spot to stay at, but it had that homey feeling that's a nice change from a sterile hotel room. It is a great value and will probably be staying here again.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great location on James Island - close to the beach and to downtown Charleston. Very clean, cozy and eccentric. Like any house, theres room for upgrades/improvements but it was perfect for a little beach getaway. Would stay again!

Lovely Find Perfectly Positioning between Charleston & Folly Beach

  • 5 of 5

Upstairs accommodations with a nice open floor plan. Master bedroom with small deck is very cute. Quiet neighborhood was perfect for walking our dogs and we enjoyed exploring Folly Beach and Charleston. Excellent food at the Griffon and great rum runners at the Crab Shack.

Don was lovely to work with and responded quickly when we needed to modify our reservation. Highly recommend for a romantic weekend getaway or week long family vacation.
