About the property

Welcome to the 'Stoplight House'! This is a cool, updated 1950's house, located literally only minutes from downtown Charleston, 15 minutes from Folly Beach, and only a short drive to many of the awesome attractions Charleston has to offer! The house boasts beautiful hardwood floors, washer and dryer, memory foam queen mattress in the main bedroom, and a second bedroom with traditional queen mattress and portable twin mattress for extra guests, off-street parking, 55'' 3D TV and a selection of 3D movies, wireless internet, and a kitchen stocked with stainless steel cookware, etc. I'm a professional musician who has traveled to 48 US states, 11 Countries, and counting! Needless to say, I have spent literally thousands of nights in hotels over the years, so I know how nicer it can be to stay in a 'home' than in a hotel! I pride myself on keeping a clean, comfy home, and am excited to share it with other travelers! Since I travel so much, I have this house set up more like a 'vacation home,' so there arent a ton of my personal affects around to clutter the place up :). The house is located at a stoplight at a fairly busy intersection. Getting in and out of the driveway at first may look difficult, however its really not bad once you do it. The location can't be beat with how close it is to everything Charleston! There is some traffic noise at the house since it is located on a fairly busy road. Its not too bad at night, and the 'main' bedroom that's located on the rear of the house Isn't too noisey, but you can hear the road. I wanted to be forthcoming and descriptive about the traffic noise in case you are very sensitive to noises (especially for extra guests who may use the second bedroom thats located on the street side of the house). Also, I have had lots of inquiries asking if the house is 'walkable' to downtown Charleston. It is not an easy walk to the areas that are most visited downtown. The house is located in a fairly busy traffic area, and walking is technically an option, however it would be a hefty walk to get to the most attractive areas of downtown. It's literally only a few minute drive to get over the bridge to downtown, and only 5-7 minutes depending on traffic to the 'heart' of downtown. There's also lots of off-street parking at the house so there's no stress in parking, yet so close to downtown! If you are not going to have a car while visiting then there is a city bus stop close to the house that goes to the visitors center and runs about once an hour (not sure how late it runs), or taxis/uber/lyft are an option. Check in / out times are listed as 3pm check in and 11am checkout. This is necessary for days that someone is checking in or out on the same day. If no one else is checking in or out that day then those times are flexible. If you would prefer a different check in/out time feel free to email me close to the date of your arrival and I can let you know if a different time is possible. Pets and children under 14 are not recommended at this house as it is located on a busy road. Please send a message of you have any questions about anything! Thanks!

Stoplight house

  • 5 of 5

First off, let me start out by thanking Steven for being such a gracious host! We was very professional and cared for our comfort. We unfortunately came to Charleston for a funeral so the late notice to Steven didn’t stop him from letting us rent the house. The house is on a busy street, but it isn’t to loud especially at night. My wife and I slept on the front bedroom and we never awoken due to traffic. The kitchen was fully stocked with all essentials housewares items needed to call a house a home. Steven was quick to respond to any issues or questions we had during our stay. The best part is that the house is less than 5 minutes from downtown Charleston! Super easy drive over the bridge. We will definitely be staying at the stoplight house again in the future. Thanks again Steven!

The place is just as advertised. Clean, close proximity to downtown, and Steven was good about checking in with us before and during our stay to make sure everything was fine.
