Space 800 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 5 nights


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.

Beyond our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Peyton and Martha are wonderful hosts and their property is a gorgeous tranquil oasis in a quiet and well cared for neighborhood. This was our first visit and we both agreed that one week was just not enough. We found the people of Charleston and surrounding areas to be very polite, warm and welcoming. Charleston and the Islands areas are very pretty to drive through, but we spent a day on a boat, and from the waterways the views are stunning. We will definitely be back. Thank you to the both of you, you made our stay a wonder.

Good place to stay to see the Charleston area

  • 5 of 5

Very relaxing. The pool is worth the stay. You just walk out of the guesthouse and in 4 feet you are in the pool. The guesthouse is very quiet and well made. We loved the king size bed. You won't regret choosing this place for your stay. The hosts are considered and accommodating. If we go back to the area, this is the place we will stay.

Stunning! Close to everything

  • 5 of 5

After reading all of the reviews on here my wife and I booked this rental for our honeymoon. Peyton and Martha are WONDERFUL! They are so accommodating, polite, and knowledgeable!

The facilities were great! The pool was refreshing, the lanai was perfect! I grilled almost every night. The guest house is spacious, clean, and inviting!

I think the best part about the stay was the fact that this spot is close to everything! 20 minutes from downtown, 25 from folly beach, 30 minutes from patriots point, and 20 minutes from the airport! The area is so fun! There is SO much to do and see here! Downtown has LOADS of good food, historical buildings, shopping, and beautiful architecture.

If you are looking for a fun vacation that you can explore and then come back and relax by the pool, then this is for you! I am so happy that we stayed here! I could not have asked for a nicer host!

A nice, quiet little place to get away!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay!! The place was very nice and felt like home. The pool house was very neat and clean. The property was well maintained and landscaping was beautiful!! Martha and Peyton were extremely nice and helpful!!

Close enough to all Charleston's activities and scenery, but far enough away for quiet and peacefulness.

Great guest house

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything's you would need for a visit to Charleston. The backyard is beautiful, nice gardens, beautiful covered patio, nice pool and full outdoor kitchen. It also has a well appointed, nice kitchen including everything you would want, utensils, pots, pans, dishes etc. The owners were very helpful, yet not intrusive at all. The location is in a quiet neighborhood, but still close to downtown, beaches, plantations and airport.
