Interaction with Guests
Very little. We greet the guests and answer any questions that they may have. Give suggestions when asked.
The neighborhood is quiet and safe. The neighbor does have chickens next door and you will hear his rooster crowing from time to time.
No public transporation in Charleston. We live on an island adjacent to the city of Charleston. We leave cab company phone numbers for your use. We suggest that if you bring bicycles, drive and then ride. Charleston does have bike lanes , but not in the neighborhoods.
Other Things to Note
A consideration when flying in. Charleston is not real great with transit. You will need to rent a car to get around.
We would prefer check-in between 4pm - 6pm, but if you are coming in late, we can make arrangements to get you a key. Check-out is 10-10:30 am.
We have two kayaks that can be used for kayaking in the tidal creek/marsh, but LIFE JACKETS MUST be worn and the tides must be observed as once the tide goes out, you can't get back to the dock until the tide comes back up.
A picnic basket, with beach towels are provided, but we ask that they are left when you get ready to leave. And, if you use the bottles inside the beach basket, please clean them.
Breakfast will be served on Saturday and Sunday mornings only between 8 & 9am. Should you make other arrangements and go out, please let us know. Some folks choose to sleep in or go into the city for breakfast.
Please note that it is an upstairs apartment, and you have to enter through a spiral staircase. Some may find this difficult.
There is parking for only one car.
