Why George and Laurie chose Mount Pleasant

Owners take pride in this large home and surroundings. We ensure that the house is always kept and maintained as a upscale establishment through detail and supervision of cleanliness and updating. We live on the property and so, of course, treat it with extra loving care. We were drawn to the unique waterfront property with the southern feeling and privacy, with location, location, location. The waterfront private dock combined with beaches and downtown make this a perfect spot. ** It is very important to us that you are aware that we live in a full and private apartment attached to this house.

We live on this unique property in a private and separate apartment with a private entrance. We like our privacy, and we like to give you privacy. We love renting the house and we appreciate it if you choose this rental. We want you to be comfortable and we want to earn your 5 star review. **

What makes this house unique

This house is so close to Charleston, and with the boat landing at the end of the street, but also upscale. Everyone loves the outside and the dock. Aside from the private property peninsula, it is surrounded by water and has water views of the creeks, the rivers, and the marshes. It is the water views and the tidal changes that really make this property spectacular. It is all about the fabulous waterfront location, the ebb and flow of the tides, the natural wildlife, and the privacy, combined with a comfortable savvy home. What a way to enjoy Historic Charleston, the Beaches and the marshes! The location can't be beat, as is evidenced by the mega multi million dollar homes in the area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Yes, we spent every evening on that beautiful wrap-around porch, telling stories and singing songs. A gathering of 6 friends from far-flung areas of the country gathered together for 6 days of Southern Hospitality from Laurie and George. That porch also provided the spot for early morning cups of strong coffee as we waited for everyone to arise before breakfast was served.

The home is as described by many; spacious, comfortable, well-decorated and well-stocked. It is impossible to add an original thought. It's all been covered. We all thoroughly enjoyed the beautifully landscaped property, the water access, the privacy, the tips given to us for beaches and tourist destinations, the kayaks and the WiFi access.

One of the highlights of our stay was when we were surprised one afternoon to a cooler full of crabs at our front door. This provided a whole host of wild laughter and entertainment as we novices tried to figure out how to steam and clean them. Fortunately, the homeowners provided much needed guidance and assistance when they discovered our ineffectiveness surrounding the extraction of the meat from the crusty shell. It gave us all a new appreciation for the amount of work it takes to create a crab cake and the amount of money you spend at a restaurant for such a meal is a reflection of that labor.

Another memorable night was when we all gathered in the living room to watch the movie, "The Big Chill" - a DVD copy is (not surprisingly) available in the home. It was a reminder of how important friendships really are, and the time to gather is not only at a funeral or a reunion, but anytime you can.

Like a dream come true!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at The Big Chill House in Charleston! Laurie and George were great hosts and the home and surroundings were absolutely gorgeous! The house itself is beautifully decorated, well laid out, and it's obvious that the hosts had their guests comfort in mind. We also loved sitting outside and watching the cargo ships go by.

I look forward to my next trip to The Big Chill House and I fully recommend staying there to anyone traveling to the area.

Owner's Response: We never get tired of watching the ships on the river. ....It is an amazing sight to see from the porch out the back....and a very spectacular scene at night while relaxing in the hot tub and watching the ship lights move by. Maybe next time you will also see some Dolphins visiting in the creek off the dock. Thank you for enjoying yourselves, and please do come back again....I am so glad that you and your friends were comfortable in the house, touring in Charleston, and enjoying the fabulous restaurants. We appreciate our guests and our goal is to provide a fantastic house, and to exceed expectations. Thank you!

Beautiful and homey

  • 5 of 5

We went to Charleston for five days with four other friends from other parts of the country. We had scoped out the house a few months prior to our stay and knew it was beautiful, but when we arrived for the visit, it was even better than we remembered. The house has everything anyone could want in a home away from home. Everyone in our group knew their way around a kitchen and we prepared a few meals and everything we needed in terms of equipment was there. On top of that, upon arrival, there was juice, cream for coffee, coffee and a few muffins and bagels. Laurie and George, our thoughtful hosts, are eager to know about anything that needs to be taken care of in the house. There are forms in each room asking for feedback on things that should be fixed or addressed. The wraparound porch is a beautiful place to gather and chat, but there are also lots of other spots for relaxing and taking in the beautiful landscaping and setting. George and Laurie also provide kayaks and paddle boards. Truly, this place has everything anyone could want for a relaxing getaway, close to Charleston but away from all the hustle and bustle of the city.

Great home, peaceful, plenty of room, conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

This home worked out fantastic for a girls weekend! Plenty of great restaurants within 5 minutes and easy to drive into Charleston for our daily exploring! If we had been motivated to cook, it would have been easy..the kitchen is fit for a chef (or two!). Plenty of room for all 5 of us to catch up, either in rocking chairs on the awesome porch or inside on the comfy couches. Beds were comfortable (two of us are picky due to back pains) and bedding was luxurious (and I am a "bedding snob"). I would highly recommend this house.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your nice review! Thanks for noticing that the Bedding is all very comfortable....a good night sleep is important, isn't it? The wonderful kitchen is nicely kept, so that fussy cooks will appreciate using it. You are right though....we have some really terrific restaurants nearby.... a hop into Downtown Charleston for the famous places, or drive just a few blocks away for local eateries. We would not want to live anyplace else! This is a great location. Come back again. Thank you for the kind review.

Beautiful home, very convenient to Charleston, private and tranquil setting.

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 couples getting together for our annual "lily pad" experience. This year we chose Charleston, one if our favorite cities in the country. The Big Chill house in Mt. Pleasant was just over the bridge from Charleston-close to the city, but still quiet and peaceful for our getaway. We all loved the back porch which looked out on the water, and ended each day here. The kitchen was very well equipped, and each couple took a turn preparing breakfast for the group and sharing the meal in the large, beautifully decorated dining room. George and Laurie were wonderful, responding quickly to our questions before arrival, meeting us at the house on arrival for a tour of the property, very friendly and helpful. We highly recommend this home, and would love to return for another getaway!
