About the property

Minutes to downtown, airport and the beach with full kitchen W/D king bed

Maximum of two (2) people - NO EXCEPTIONS - In case you have any doubts that means two (2) out of the womb heart beats.

5 night minimum stay except some holidays - see seasonal rates

20 x 40 salt water swimming pool 74 sq meters- not heated in winter

Guest house is 800 sq ft / 74 sq meters

When everyone arrives they tell us our photos do not do the property justice. It is very special and hard to capture.

WI-FI - secure and for the guest house only

This is a separate residence from our home. Our home is at the end of the swimming pool. The guest house is the building parallel to the pool connected to the lanai and to the right of the lanai.

Minutes from downtown Charleston, hospitals, airport, plantations and the beach.

We have lost count of the number of honeymoon and anniversary couples that we have hosted.

Come and relax in a place where there are no problems, just peacefulness. Swim in your own pool or a short ride to the beach. Relax in the evening by the outside fireplace on the lanai.

Cable TV/DVD in living room and bedroom

2 Spa Robes

Kitchen extremely well equipped, stainless cookware, plenty of utensils, beautiful dishes, microwave, blender, toaster, dishwasher and ice maker in refrigerator. This is NOT a kitchenette.

All bed linens, bath towels and pool/beach towels supplied.

Large bathroom with washer and dryer.

PARKING for vehicle and a boat - If you do not want to rent a car, Uber will pick you up at the door.

The entire rear of the property is equipped with a mosquito proof system that is essential in Charleston.

Large lanai with gas grill and utensils, concrete counter tops, additional outside ice maker and sink, ceiling fans, teak dining table and chairs, glider, rocking chairs and teak steamer chairs for sunning or napping.

Downtown and Folly Beach 15-20 minutes easy drive.

Not to worry, if you are flying in, we will supply you with beach chairs and a cooler - if beach is on you list - but once you see the pool and the resort like atmosphere of the guest house, you will not want to leave.

NO PETS and NO SMOKING PROPERTY (That means outside also). If you are a smoker, this is not the property for you.

Quiet neighborhood with giant Southern Live Oak trees.

Private boat ramp in neighborhood - Neighborhood is a small island.

There are only two of us and we interact with the one or two of you staying in the totally separate guest house as much or as little as you choose. We have had guests that choose to never interact and others that enjoy drinks on the lanai or around the pool in the evening to ask questions about the following day and discuss their adventures of the day.

West Ashley Greenway is very nearby for biking, running or just walking.

The South Carolina coast is well-known for its championship golf courses, offshore fishing or inshore fishing at the city's marina, history, walking tours and shopping. Pack as much or as little as desired. With the washer and dryer we have had guests that arrived with just back packs. We have had guests that spent their day napping in the sun and others that divide their time between site seeing and leisure by the pool.

Conde Nast continually declares Charleston top tourist city for history and foodies.

Calendar is up to date - use the Book It Now Button. We prefer online echecks to keep rental rates low (no obligation until all parties agree) We suggest using the check in check out filter search feature to assist with your search

Number of individuals not to exceed two (2) - We are NOT an event space. If you want to have anyone over, you must let us know well in advance when, how many individuals, the time span, etc. We will then make a determination if this is an acceptable situation. We have often had guests ask for another couple or their grown children to come for an evening of dinner and swimming. This has never been an issue, but recently we have had unacceptable situations. Guests should not expect to have the pool, lanai or guest house full of their guests. This is undue use on the space, amenities and equipment.

About Guest House

We have taken early retirement to enjoy life and travel. Our guest house is a source of pride for us and we work very hard to be good hosts to all our guests. We believe that if you own a property you rent you must be able to stay there as if you lived there full time; otherwise, you should not rent.

Why Guest House chose Charleston

We originally built this for a combination pool house and guest house with lanai for entertaining our friends and guests. We have decided to share with others because it is our own little resort. We have had so much fun meeting people from all over the world.

What makes this house unique

8 miles to downtown - 15-20 minutes drive time. 15-20 minutes from the airport, outlet shopping, plantations and the beaches. Close to everything without the hassle of everyone. Our neighborhood is very quiet and highly respected area with large Southern Live Oak trees. We have 4 extraordinary specimens on our property.

Little bit of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Loved this vacation rental. Clean, so comfortable and just like home. Comfortable King bed, great kitchen and grill right outside the door.

Was hot and humid in Charleston so loved having a salt water pool right outside our door after our daily adventures. Also spent many peaceful hours on the lovely lanai and loved getting to know our hosts there also.

I highly recommend this rental.

Southern Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We visited for our 41st wedding anniversary and the property was everything we had wanted plus so much more! Everything was so clean and beautiful! It looked like something out of Southern Living! We enjoyed sitting in the rockers in the outdoor living area drinking coffee and enjoying the scenery. The place was stocked with so many items that you may need while there such as spices, soaps, etc. We very much enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anybody looking for a quiet getaway!!

Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our 10th anniversary and couldn't have found a better place to stay. The accommodations were comfortable and clean. The property was beautifully landscaped and maintained. The pool was a delight to beat the heat. And we were 15-20 minutes to everything we wanted to see while we were in Charleston. Martha and Peyton were great hosts. A pleasure to visit with and real experts when it comes to the best local places to visit. Two of our favorites were just down the road. The Glass Onion for the fried chicken supper on Tuesday nights, and the Swig and Swine for their brisket. We definitely look forward to coming back to this wonderful guest house.

Great Charleston Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I chose to stay here for our honeymoon. It was a fantastic experience. 15-20 minutes from everything. The house and outdoor living areas were perfect for the two of us. The homeowners were friendly and gave us all the privacy we wanted while still making sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely consider staying here again.

Beautiful and private getaway close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the guest house! Pictures really don't do it justice. What a deal for such beautiful accommodations. Everything was clean and ready upon our arrival. Any questions we had were answered promptly. We were a 10-20 minute drive from most major tourist attractions in the area depending on traffic. We did the provided self guided walking tour of Charleston, very nice. Can't wait to come back! Thank you Peyton and Martha for your hospitality.

Extremely well maintained property

  • 5 of 5

The house and grounds are extremely well maintained. The accommodations are first class all the way. The house was well decorated and Martha and Peyton have all of the details covered in regards to items you may need or forgot to bring along. The outdoor living area and pool are a retreat into itself. Martha and Peyton were extremely helpful with suggestions and information regarding the Charleston area. The property is only 10 minutes from Charleston but is on a small quiet island, ideal for quiet relaxing time regardless of the time of day. Highly recommend this property.
