Perfectly located between beach and Historic Charleston (4-5 mi by bike or car to either) Small, private suite has own entrance, bath with tub, HDTV, wi-fi in and mini-split heat and air system. room. You may enjoy the large screened porch overlooking wooded yard and koi pond, and have full use of the kitchen and do a load of laundry. Host is welcoming longtime Charleston resident, Certified Buyers Agent and award-winning historic renovator/former vegetarian restaurant owner, so can link guests to most interests. 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. The airport is just 14 minutes away. We are central to any attraction you would want, yet in a very peaceful, quiet setting and your room is separate and quiet.

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.

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.
House is in a nice area, quite clean, and has all the amenities one could wish for - which is reflected in the price. For those wishing to explore Charleston, looking at Bed&Breakfast's downtown is recommended. It comes with more privacy but at the price of not having a great personal host who cares a lot that her guests feel welcomed.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay here. Wendy was very welcoming and made us feel completely at home.
The bed was very comfortable, clean and quiet. We would stay there again if we came back to Charleston.
Our first trip to Charleston - what a great town. Enjoyed dining, the beach, music festival, and just relaxing --- location is convenient to all of the above.
Wendy was an absolutely wonderful host! Very gracious and welcoming. The home was an older home with an added on bonus room in the attic on the other side of the house, which gave us our privacy. Nice sun room in the back and a cool coi pond. Wendy was kind enough to let us know where we should definitely visit while there. The home felt very cozy and comfortable. The host added to that feeling making our stay very pleasant and relaxing. Would definitely recommend this cozy getaway in Charleston!

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.
