Why Karen Kimbrell chose Charleston Area

I grew up in Charleston and love the area. My Dad lived in this house for many years and spent countless hours fishing from the deck. At one time he held the record for catching the largest Crappy caught in the lake! He taught several of his grands how to fish here and to them he was 'Pop Pop'. So in his memory we affectionately named the property, 'Pop Pop's Place' .... I hope you enjoy your visit.......

What makes this house unique

The quality of life in Charleston is grand, offering a large variety of indoor and outdoor activities, seasonal festivals, fabulous restaurants and unsurpassed beauty! If this is your 1st visit, you are going to love it here!

Loved this precious home

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our family. We had a wedding in Charleston and we were only a short drive away. The house was very clean and decorated beautifully. We loved that the owners had left menus from places around the island be cause we had no clue where to eat. I would recommend this house to anyone! We were beyond pleased.

Pop Pop's is perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Pop Pop's was exactly as described by so many reviewers and we couldn't have enjoyed our stay any more. The location was perfect - close to the beach and downtown Charleston. Restaurants and a grocery store are in walking distance.

The house is beautifully decorated, comfortable, clean and well stocked. The lakeside view is the icing on the cake and the deck the perfect spot to start each day with our morning coffee. Although hurricane Matthew chased us away a few days early we had a wonderful time and look forward to a return visit.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

A home away from home! The Kimbrell's have thought of everything. Each bedroom with their own private bath was a nice plus. A good selection of books, games and puzzles are available, if your visit includes a rainy day, you are all set to keep the family entertained. Having the lake in the backyard provided a nice way to unwind after a long day sightseeing. We really appreciated the 'cheat sheet' for navigating Charleston and local restaurant options. The grocery store within walking distance was very convenient. If you want a comfortable home for your stay in the Charleston area, Pop Pop's Place is for you!

Amazing and adorable spot!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was such a treat to stay in while visiting Charleston. We came down for a girls trip and were extremely satisfied with our stay. The home itself is kept clean, well stocked, and has nice beachy decor. There is a great deck by the water where you can sit, relax, and enjoy a cup of coffee. Location wise, there couldn't be a better place. We were able to get downtown and to Foley beach in 15 minutes or less. I would definitely recommend this home to a friend, and plan to return again in the future!
