About Robert Ingram

We fell in love with the Charleston area when our oldest son attended college at Charleston Southern. We love the beaches, walking and shopping in the historic district, shopping at Tanger Outlet, playing golf, visiting the plantations when the azaleas are in bolo, etc, etc. When our younger son decided to live in the area after graduating college, we knew we wanted to have a place in the Charleston area, too! We never grow tired of going to Charleston!

Robert Ingram purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Robert Ingram chose Charleston

Beach lovers at heart, this location was perfect for us. We can be at the beach in minutes and we're also so close to downtown Charleston where the shopping (and eating) is great!

We just recently discovered the James Island County Park and we can't wait to take our little granddaughters there.

What makes this townhome unique

We love the trails around the neighborhood that provide a safe place to walk and ride bikes. If we need anything at all, the Super Walmart is just up the street. Folly Beach is just minutes away. It offers a pier, lots of beach shops, and dining spots. Downtown Charleston with all its charm is just over the bridge....

The property was spotless, comforting, homelike, and totally welcoming. It was perfectly located .

  • 5 of 5

The property is located in a spot equi distant to all of the sight seeing we wanted to do in Charleston. It is quiet, the beds are so comfortable, and the TV was easy to use when we returned from sight seeing! The easy way to get in the place didn't bother the owner, and the loose leaf binder was thorough enough to get us through the time spent. Water temp was too low for a good shower....the only complaint! Washer/dryer so convenient, and like all good rentals.....location, location, location!

Clean, clean, clean! All kitchen stuff was perfect and very useable! Even coffee was the to use....we left a new container for the next guys! Thank you Robert.....hipefullly we get to use it again! Zero hesitation! This is a great rental folks...,..go use it!

Owner's Response: Hey Guys! Thank you for the very nice review. I really appreciate you taking your time to do so. I am sorry about the water temp. Not sure what is up with that. I will certainly check on that. The water heater is less than two years old. I do hope you will come stay again sometime. Take care! Robert
