Why Keith and Lynn Merrill chose Charleston Area

Very unique house. We love the palm trees growing up through the front porches. Multi-level so family members can spread out and maybe have some quiet time in the sunroom or just sit on the many decks and see the ocean.

What makes this house unique

Parking is always a problem at the beach. We have our own private off road driveway and a separate parking pad outside the back porch. This house is an original beach house that has been renovated over the years. Beautiful enclosed yard and the beach is just across the street.

A wonderful home & bargain!

  • 5 of 5

This house has it all and it's just a quick walk across the road to the beach...We don't want to talk this house up too much because we want to keep it all to ourselves!! The owners are super to work with and this house is not only really's totally immaculate! You'll love it! The 3rd floor has an awesome view of the ocean as well.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay!


It is an easy walk to the main strip for food and fun. Bert's market is a couple blocks away, open 24 hours and has anything you might need. The beach is right across the street and you can see the ocean waves from the porch. Each room has there own air conditioning unit with a remote control so you can control the temp in your individual room. They provide a lot of chairs, umbrellas, and toys. The outside shower is great when coming back from the beach. There is a nice grill provided with picnic area. The lawn is nice for yard games.

Only negatives:

The layout of the house is very strange. Each room is on a separate floor. One is next to the kitchen, one next to the living room, one up the spiral staircase, and then the loft. So if you want to go to bed early or sleep in, you might get woken up easily because you can hear everything going on right outside your room. Also, if you are a tall person, there were some clearance issues in the doorways. The toilet paper provided was the cheapest you can ever find (bring your own). Also, the beds are pretty hard.

I would definitely recommend this place and stay there again.

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect! There were enough beds to comfortably sleep our group. The house was neat and clean upon arrival. Owners were amazing to deal with. Access to beach was right there. Porch was so nice to sit on and enjoy! We even forgot a shoe and dress which we were able to pick up the following day. We will definitely be back! I would highly recommend this property!

Perfect location, clean and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

I was so impressed with Swell Cottage! My family (5 adults and 1 child) thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is clean, the layout provided plenty of space, and the location couldn't have been better. We were a few blocks from the center of town, and right across the street from the beach access! My husband and I stayed on the third floor and found the bed very comfortable and the deck so inviting. The kitchen and dining table were perfect for cooking some meals in. There are a lot of stairs, so be aware of that if you have people with walking issues in your party. My son loved the loft sleeping area, perfect for small children. He also fell in love with playing Monopoly while we were there! All in all I wouldn't hesitate to book this house again if I travel with a group. Thanks so much to Lynn for the excellent communication throughout the process!
