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 chicken and you will hear his rooster crowing from time to tim.
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.
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 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 8:30 & 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.
Our host made us feel so welcome and was incredibly accommodating and helpful with suggestions regardless of our late arrival and being under the weather. The space was beautiful and just the oasis we wanted to return to after long days of activity. We loved the neighborhood and water views as well and were even in a spot within walking distance to a local bar and restaurant one evening when we weren't feeling up to heading back downtown. A great space, we hope to return one day soon!
My boyfriend and I stayed in the waterfront apartment for 3 nights in March. The apartment was very comfortable and well-appointed, with nice amenities such as towels, coolers, and beach bags for our use. The property sits right on the water, so we were able to use the owners' kayaks that are provided at no charge. The weather was lovely, the hosts were very accommodating, and the location of the apartment is very convenient for access into Charleston and the surrounding areas. I highly recommend this venue if you are looking for something quiet and out of the way but within easy reach of everything that the city has to offer. My thanks to Sherry and Milton for their thoughtful hospitality.
Victoria and Kevin were great. They were clean and tidy and were very understanding when we couldn't cook breakfast on their last morning with us. We had a family emergency and my husband was hospitalized. They were able to take advantage of the kayaks. I would recommend them at any time.
My first experience with AirBnB was a great one with Sherry as our host. The apartment on the top floor was in great condition and had a very welcoming feel. Sherry was more than happy to field questions and offer suggestions. We took her up on the bed and the 'breakfast.' The food was delish and really lived up to the other previous reviews. The location is away from the main part of town but close enough for a reasonable priced uber/cab ride. The visit was in February so the weather was too cold to take advantage of the pretty dock out back but maybe that will be saved for a future visit.
The location was fantastic and the hospitality was great. Sherry and Milton are great hosts. The breakfasts on Saturday and Sunday were really tasty. The suggestions they gave were spot on awesome.
Sherry and Milton were wonderful hosts! The location was very convenient. We visited on one of the coldest weekends of the winter in Charleston, and still had a blast! The apartment has everything you need, and some nice touches including snacks, etc. The breakfast provided was out of this world delicious!
We had a great stay during our visit to Charleston! We enjoyed the quiet location on James Island tidal creek--away from the hustle-bustle of downtown Charleston. The hosts were polite, flexible (we arrived a little later than expected), and friendly. The apartment space was comfortable, and we appreciated having a living area with kitchenette separate from the bedroom. This was especially nice since we brought our 19-month-old along for the trip! Our hot breakfast on Saturday morning was a particular treat. We would love to come back and stay here again!
Sherry and her husband were very accommodating and communicative when our plane was delayed and our arrival time was pushed back. They gave clear instructions on how to get into their space late at night and an automatic light even turned on to light our way.
The space was clean and large with space to chill. The neighborhood was suburban with backyards opening to beautiful marshes. A very easy drive to the city. A VERY VERY tasty blueberry pancake breakfast was provided!!
