Double glass doors open onto large porch over-looking the Leadenwah Creek from this bedroom.
My home is a cozy 2 story cottage on the Leadenwah Creek, 19 miles southwest of downtown Charleston, SC. There are 4 bedrooms with mine downstairs & 3 upstairs. One of those bedrooms with a full-sized bed is featured for rent on this site. There is a television in the living room with 10 channels, including the major networks, & Apple TV featuring Netflix & HBO GO. Wireless internet is included.
Please note that I have 2 listings, the other being Rest Awhile Wadmalaw Style. Each listing offers 1 bedroom with a full-sized bed for $100/night. If you have a 3rd person or a child or two and prefer not to rent both bedrooms, I also offer a comfortable couch, window seat, bed swing & double chaise for fetching a good night's rest. There will be a $15/night charge for extra sleepers in these spots.
My kitchen and living area is to be lived in as if it's your own. Meals taken on the porch overlooking the Leadenwah Creek are peaceful and relaxing. My washer and dryer are available for you, also.
Enjoy the quiet peace that Wadmalaw and my 10 wooded acres afford you. Take a free tour through the woods & neighboring cemetery accompanied by my 4-legged guides, Moose & Stella. (A belly-rub tip is greatly appreciated.) Swim, kayak, fish, enjoy the sunset from my private dock. If it's cool, have a bonfire. Fresh eggs, compliments of my French hens, Sammy & Maggie, are available & encouraged. Country amenities abound at my home.
My birder visitors have exclaimed about the rookery, laden with no less than a dozen white egrets, existing in a tall, droopy tree jutting out from a hunk of mud in our marsh. This lush marsh, tidal creek and mud out my front door draw a variety of fowl, including Snowy & Great Egrets, Clapper Rails, Tri-Color Herons, and Red-Tailed Hawks, to name a few.
Your drive to nearby historic plantations is a tree-lined, country delight without city traffic. The same is true for day trips to the resort islands of Kiawah and Seabrook. John's Island is right next door with many relaxing activities, including horseback riding & farmers' markets. Our own Wadmalaw has America's only tea plantation and a local winery boasting the popular Sweet Tea vodka.
Folly Beach is a 23 mile drive. Kiawah's Beachwalker Park is 22 miles. This is owned & operated by Charleston County Parks and is a lovely drive on an oak-canopied country road.
Entire home, grounds and dock are available for our guests to enjoy; canines included! There is a blow dryer and flat iron, also.
Other Things to Note
We have 1 large friendly dog & 1 smaller, friendly puppy that live outside.
Please no smoking in house or on porches.

This is the second time we are staying at this marvelous house with the kind host Fran. We've been in many airbnb locations and this is definitely a very special one. The house is just great, Fran is so nice and accommodating and the dogs, chicken and deck are beautiful. We highly recommend staying here and we will definitely come to visit Fran again soon.
Our stay with Fran was excellent. She went out of her way to make us feel at home. We especially loved napping on the porch swing upon arrival looking out onto the water. Thanks for a great trip Fran!
I could not have asked for a better first experience with airbnb. This is a very special property created by a warm and gracious host. I can imagine returning again and again. If you like quiet, unspoiled natural settings, this is the perfect place. My only regret is that I could not stay longer.
We are very frequent airbnb users and hands-down this is by far the best house we ever stayed in. This is a magical farm house very homey and surrounded with breath taking nature. We only met Fran for a few seconds when we checked in late at night, but she a great host and let feel right at home. We had the most amazing experience in this house and we are certain we will stay here again soon.
Southern hospitality at is finest!!!! Wadmalaw style!!!! Beautiful home, beautiful setting and as relaxing as it gets! We would stay here again in a heartbeat..oh and beautiful dogs to chill with!!!!
Fran's place is great. We stayed here the night before a triathlon in Kiawah and it was the perfect spot to relax before a before race. We had a magical sunset and enjoyed the calming sounds of the country to put us to sleep.
Still the most amazing airbnb place we have experienced. Fran is kind, generous and amazingly considerate of our needs. She is the super host. Her house is beautiful and welcoming, the rooms are cozy and the land and sights are unbelievable. Her pets are awesomely fun, and I can't help but emphasize that this place is one of the most comfortable homes I have ever been in.

I was born and raised in Estill, SC and graduated from the University of South Carolina with a BS in Nursing. I work at Roper Hospital in Charleston, SC in Cardiac Surgery. Getting home to my comfy cottage in the woods, on the creek is the best! I am a single, empty-nester with bedrooms to spare.
