Interaction with Guests
We spend a lot of time with our guests both at breakfast and in the evening.
It is so close to everything. Our place is so quiet and serene and that is what people love about us. They like to go downtown during the day but they love to come back here where it is peaceful and quiet and spend the evening in the screened in room in the back with a glass of wine. There is also a lot of history here. In walking distance from the house you will found and area where the only beach for African Americans used to be. In addition it had a Motel and a Nightclub where all the big names like Duke Ellington, James Brown, Luis Amstrong and other big names used to play.
Bus 40 or 41 will take you downtown + there is also a waterfront taxi. Buses are 5 minutes walk from the house the water taxi 15 minutes walk.

No smoking. Not suitable for small children.
Not a party place. No shoes indoors but we do provide slippers.
Our host was very welcoming and so very helpful in giving us places to visit. Her directions were very easy to follow. Staying Mt Pleasant was very quiet and we had no trouble getting into Charleston.
Wenche (pronounced Venka) was very friendly and accommodating! She was quick to help with planning our days, very knowledgeable about the area, good places to eat, places that only locals know about. She even called in a reservation for dinner on our behalf the night we arrived. We sat on her porch and talked every morning over coffee and croissants. Her home is very comfortable albeit a little warm (keep in mind it was August in Charleston and we're from Colorado). When we asked, she turned down the AC upstairs a few degrees and it helped quite a bit. She is very serious about taking off your shoes! We took ours off at the door but when I unpacked I sat some shoes on the floor in our room, not thinking about it. She moved them to the bottom of the armoire and asked us to keep them off them in there or in our bag. After talking to her one morning, we found that the rationale behind this makes total sense. All in all, she was very friendly, welcoming, helpful, and we had a wonderful time. She was even so thoughtful as to give us a parting gift for our daughter that is due in March.
Highly recommend this lovely home. We were warmly welcomed after an exhaustive drive and had a perfect breakfast spread waiting for us when we woke. The accommodations were wonderful and details as to our comfort were very well considered. Wenche is an enthusiastic hostess, eager to talk about her area and help guide to a perfect visit.
Staying at Wyatt and Wenche's home was a true pleasure. We came to Charleston for our anniversary, and they did so much to make it special for us. We really appreciated their recommendations on restaurants and things to do. Our room was lovely, with a vase of fresh flowers and a note wishing us a happy anniversary. Wenche is an excellent cook, and breakfast each morning was delicious! We hope to return to Charleston soon and stay with Wyatt and Wenche again!
Our bed was very comfortable and our hosts were lovely. We enjoyed breakfast with other guests on the enormous screened porch and sitting outside in several different seating areas. Very clean and comfortable
From the communication during and after initial booking, to our stay with Wenche's and Wyatt our hosts, it was a flawless experience.
Their home was full of character, charming and comfortable. The location perfect for visiting downtown Charleston as well as the coastal region with too many site's mention.
Wenche's was more than accommodating with information about the area, including their favorite restaurants.
All in all, we would go back in a heartbeat.
My wife and I had a great time over the 4th of July staying at Wenche's place. Her is convenently located just across the bridge from Charleston, just a short drive to downtown. The room was great and much better than staying at a hotel. We had our own private bathroom. She also pointed out some great resturants to eat at. She has great knowledge of the area which helped my wife and I, since it was our first visit to Charleston. We would highly recommend staying there if you are going to be in the area. I'm sure we will be back.

About the Host, Wenche
I was born in Bergen Norway but i have been moving around since i was 17. I have lived in Denmark,Sweden,Italy,Finland,Spain and now in America. I love to travel and to meet people and see other cultures. I am an expert in cakebaking and i can make the most beautiful and incredible tasting cakes. I am also a great cook. My first mother in law was italian and i learned how to do everything from pasta to meat to fish. I love to read especially in the winter. When you stay with us you will have plenty of books to read should you want to stay in and read. For over 20 years i worked as a tourleader for italien groups in Scandinavia so i have many stories to tell. I speak Norwegian,swedis,danish,italien, english + some spanish,french and german. My husband and i have been married for 16 years now and we met in Miami. I love flowers and you will have no doubt about that once you come to stay with us. I love the 50th and 60th music but also classical and italien music. We have a liberary with a tv but we don't watch much tv. We spend most of the year outside and in the winter we sit in front of the fireplace and read or talk. I love a glas of wine with good friends too.
