Why Karen Kimbrell chose Charleston

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!

Perfectly PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

Pop Pop's place was the PERFECT place for a PERFECTLY AMAZING Charleston experience! Cozy, restful and lakeside peaceful, it provided a super convenient respite from the hustle bustle of the city crowds. Beautifully decorated, the "homey" atmosphere gave everyone the space needed to truly relax! Already planning next year's return! Thank you, Kimbrells!

Great with a few exceptions

  • 4 of 5

The location was great! Due to the recent hurricane there was a lot of debris on the front and back porches, understandable. Overall our stay was very good, minor details would have made it great.

Extra paper towels, floor in second bedroom needed attention, light bulbs burned out in bathrooms and laundry closet. A hand rail on the stairs would have been helpful since they were so steep. Hand and bath soap for the bathrooms. The attention to minor details is what makes a location go from a 4 to a 5 star.

Would recommend to friends, with these caveats.

This is a wonderful, eclectic home! Tasteful furnishings and decor. Very comfortable for our group of four girlfriends. So close and easy to drive to the historic district and plantations, as well as the beaches. A great retreat from the bustle of the city. Pop Pop's Place is on a quiet street with the water literally off the back deck. Starbucks and light shopping within a five minute walk. Highly recommend!

Quaint and cozy home

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful rental property close to Folly Beach and downtown Charleston. Driving from rental to these locations and others was very easy and short! Extremely clean, decor is terrific! In a quiet, scenic neighborhood. Would stay again for sure! Loved all of the suggestions on parking, eating, and activities that owner provided - very helpful. Grocery store so close too! Thanks again!
