The pictures truly do not do this house justice! The owner let us know that it was recently remodeled in May, and it is beautiful! Truly, the furniture and decor make it feel like a full time house! The paintings throughout the house are so beautiful-- especially the one in the bedroom across from the master... It is a marvelous painting of a Charleston plantation driveway lined with what I think are oak trees.
We didn't have a car the first day, but since Uber came to Charleston, we hardly needed one. There is a Harris Teeter, Starbucks, yoga studio, and PureBarre relatively close, and it even makes for a nice walk if you're open!
You're provided with more than enough towels, clean sheets, and plenty of toilet paper, and as I said above, the grocery store is close.
The beds were amazing! My whole party (myself included) could not stop ranting and raving about how comfortable they are... It feels like you're sleeping on a cloud. I was truly tempted to lift up the mattress and see what brand they were (Alas! Coulda, shoulda, woulda...)
The kitchen comes with more than enough pots and pans to feed a family of 12, and there is a Keurig for making coffee in the morning-- as well as a teapot for those who prefer tea.
The back of the house was amazing! The screened porch was truly a treat. There's also a bar-b-q grill on the back porch that comes with propane all ready to be used! The saltwater pool was awesome! The pool is much deeper than it looks, and it's fabulous because the seating and floor of the pool is smooth, so you don't get pills on your bathing suit when you sit! There was enough seating for everyone and then some, and the best part is that if you're a remote worker, the wifi reaches out to where the pool is... Truly a treat!
The neighborhood was a little bit sketchy at night, but as long as you don't go wandering around alone, it's fine! And for the price + the actual house, it's definitely worth a tiny trade off.
Overall, I had an absolutely fabulous experience, and I know the rest of my crew did too. Thank you, Laurie and George, for a wonderful weekend and for sharing your beautiful house with us!
