About Keith

I am a lifelong Carolinea boy, having grown up in NC and then living in SC since 1981.

Keith purchased this farmhouse in 2005

Why Keith chose Charleston Area

Toogoodoo Bluff is so unique and special. It offers an authenic Lowcountry experience and not just another beach week. The structures are all very historic and meticuously renovated. The high bluff overlooking the river and marshes are therapeutic. Toogoodoo Bluff is not a place, it is an experience.

What makes this farmhouse unique

As previously stated, Toogoodoo Bluff is not just another week at the beach even though we are only a short drive to Edisto Beach. It allows for groups to be together without having to be together in a single structure.

Just spent the week at Toogoodoo Bluff seeing and listening to friends, family, birds, dolphins, water and the sky. It was therapeutic to our souls and relationships. The setting and houses were all beautiful.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Toogoodoo Bluff! It was a bit more rustic than we were expecting, but once we got past the old house quirks, we thought it was the perfect place for our group of 14 to stay. Keith, the owner, was fantastic. The second night we were there we found out the grill wasn't working properly. We called Keith the next day and he brought out a brand new grill. Any time we called him for something, he cheerfully and quickly responded. Our favorite part was the covered dock. The kids were out there non-stop fishing, canoeing, and crabbing. We saw dolphins every morning. One morning we saw a mama and baby dolphin swim by and about 15 minutes later, a small alligator swam by. Our group ranged in age from 8 to 70 and every one of us loved it!

Beautiful location on the Toogoodoo River

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Toogoodoo Bluff with two other families - the three properties gave us plenty of space for everyone to sleep and spread out. We spent most of our time on the dock and in the water. The owner is very pleasant and I enjoyed learning about the history of the three homes. Our biggest issue with our stay was the fact that the dock was unsafe and needed some repairs. We would have also preferred that the bedroom and bathrooms have window treatments for privacy. Overall, we were very happy with our stay. It is an easy drive for those coming from Charleston.

Owner's Response: The guest was correct as my floating boat dock was damaged in a recent storm and the repairs were incomplete. This normally wouldn't have been as much of an issue but this guest group brought power boats and used my dock. Repairs are continuing and will be completed imminently. As for the lack of window treatments in the second floor master bath and master bedroom it has always been our preference to have unobstructed views of the beautiful river and marsh. There are no neighbors to see into the rooms and I've never had a complaint in the previous 10 years. However, I respect my guests opinion and will look into providing window treatments that can be used if preferred.

Awesome place

  • 5 of 5

Our three daughters joined us with their families at Toogoodoo Bluff for a spring break family reunion. The grandkids had a great time fishing and catching crabs. We all had a good time watching the catching of crabs. To add to the fun, a dolphin stopped by the dock most days to play. The kids also enjoyed playing with the dogs, canoeing, the evening camp fires, playing games in the evening at the big table in the main house, playing the organ, and also cooking some of the meals. We all enjoyed relaxing in those rocking chairs on the front porch, on the bluff, or on the dock. Toogoodoo Bluff provided the perfect accommodations for our family. Our time at Toogoodoo Bluff was magical and provided all of us with lifelong memories.

Everything about our experience at Toogoodoo was wonderful right from the start. When I contact Keith he was extremely friendly and was able to answer all the (probably annoying) questions I had about his property. We booked the property for a family reunion. Upon arrival we were blown away by the setting, the property sits looking down on Toogoodoo creek, it has a great dock that we took full advantage of. We were impressed that Keith leaves kayaks and canoe's for his renters to use. All three houses were charming in their own right. They were immaculate clean when we arrived. The farm house was the number one hangout spot over our stay. I cant expressed how much we enjoyed our stay. We have already booked for next year. You can tell that Keith has poured his heart and soul into this property and it really shows.

Cant wait for next year!!!!

Charleston's Best Kept Secret

  • 5 of 5

My sister-in-law booked this place for her family to stay during her daughter's wedding weekend. My family was invited over to sit by the campfire with them on Friday night. From the time we drove up into the driveway it absolutely took my breath away. And then we had the treat of viewing the big house which is something out of a storybook. The decor is elegant, yet simple and definitely reflects the old Charleston charm. As I walked through the house I kept telling myself it doesn't get any better than this. That's the moment I realized the best kept secret around was awaiting just outside the back door. The view is remarkable. Picture a firepit with a beautiful river running beside it while you and your loved ones sit back and take it all in. But wait. That's not all. There is a fishing dock that is amazing. I was in awe as I stood there watching the guys pull in trout and red drums one after another. Dinner for later of course. I took my 17 year old son with me to see this beautiful plantation and his reply to me was "Mom I never want to leave." We absolutely cannot wait to go back. I think this would be the perfect setting for a family reunion. There are two smaller homes right next door. I would recommend this vacation as a must do for you and your family. You absolutely cannot go wrong with this great retreat!
