A short walk beneath live oak canopies will take you to cute restaurants or grocery, and a longer walk on same sidewalk takes you to waterfront park with fishing pier.

I respect your privacy, love hearing the stories of others and am here to help you enjoy your stay.
We're in a quietly upscale neighborhood of brick, single family homes in a wooded area running along Hobcaw Creek. We have egrets and Great Blue Herons (occasionally in the yard,) huge trees, yet are literally in the center of town within biking distance to the beach or Historic Charleston. (My daughter bikes, I'm more apt to drive the 10 minutes)!
Charleston public transit is not useful, so you may want a car. Cabs are so-so and pricey. i am happy to drop you off and pick you up when I can for $1 a mile roundtrip.
There is so much to see and do - paddle boarding, kayaking, barrier islands, great restaurants, fine dining, quirky dining, Lowcountry Gullah Culture, Lowcountry Good Ole Boy Culture, real plantations, historic homes, speciality museums, convenient shopping, interesting neighborhoods, each with a flavor...
No smoking on the premises.
Its nice when guests put their bed linens and towels in the machine when through.
I love animals but do not want any in the house at this time.

We were very happy with our stay at Wendy's. Everything was exactly as pictured and described on airbnb. Wendy was incredibly friendly and welcoming. It was very nice to have a stocked kitchen of breakfast foods, and we enjoyed making our own breakfast in the kitchen each day. We had some rainy days during our trip, and Wendy shared some ideas on things to do on a rainy day. The location of Wendy's home in Mt Pleasant was very convenient to drive to downtown Charleston and Sullivan's Island.
If you are looking for a great host, great house, and great location to be close to tons of tourist attractions, stay with Wendy!
Our stay with Wendy was a majorly positive experience. We had the privilege of having an awesome host as well as an amazing room.
The room that we stayed in had lots of natural light, which was a big plus for us (the sunlight really spreads through that room). It was also tucked away in the house, so we felt like we had plenty of privacy. One mentionable feature - we were able to sit outside on the screened-in porch and enjoy a meal whenever we wanted to, very nice touch.
Her home / our room was clean, inviting, and really just a neat place.
As promised, we were about a 5-10 minute drive from the Isle of Palms beach, Sullivan's Island beach, and Folly Beach. We were blessed for the sand, sunlight, and the ocean to be so accessible from this location.
Wendy is a beautiful person with a beautiful home. She opened her heart and her home to us in a way that we will never forget, and for that we are both truly thankful to have met her and have stayed with her.
We love you Wendy, and we hope for the best!
God bless you! :)
We were able to just make ourselves at home and relax which was nice. The room is private and comfortable and the air conditioning was great. This was our first AirBNB experience and it was well worth it. Wendy and her daughter were lovely to talk to and made us feel right at home. Wendy gave great suggestions for places to eat and things to do and see.
We had a great experience staying with Wendy. She was very helpful with dialing us in on local things to try. Her home is pleasant and relaxing. I would recommend it to anyone. Great location too!
This was our first Airbnb experience and we will certainly use it again! Wendy was great! We felt very much at home and welcomed. I'm a clean freak and the space was up to my standards. Only negative was not having more time!
Wendy was very accommodating. We got in late and she offered to make us dinner. The room was clean and cozy and the bed was very nice.
We enjoyed our stay with Wendy. She is a very nice person and a delight to converse with. Her home is clean and in a nice location-close to many conveniences (mall, restaurants, pharmacies, etc) in a nice, quiet neighborhood. It's only about a 15-minute drive to downtown Charleston but out of the hustle and bustle of the city. We would stay there again.

About the Host, Wendy
I'm a(n award-winning) building designer-restorationist /mother /writer project manager/real estate agent/who loves experiencing new places and sharing understanding with people from different paths than my own. Recently I returned to Charleston from 16 months in Australia, where I was privileged to experience a multi-cultural community, gracious hospitality and openness, and a vibrant cultural scene. I hope I can be as helpful to you on your next trip. I love art, history, food, history, architecture, adaptive re-use and design, R&B, rock, Baroque and music from West Africa. I've lived in the Northeast, the Midwest and the South, and spent time in the Bay Area, France, Switzerland, Costa Rica and the Yucatan. I have so many places yet to go, and wherever I am I will try to be a good host to you, also. If I have a motto it might be, "There are No Maps." To me that means that life, at it's best, is unpredictable.
