About This Listing
Enjoy your Charleston stay in a traditional Charleston Single home on Johns Island only 9 miles from the historic downtown Charleston. Enjoy the quiet of Johns Island with easy access to all the greatness that the low country has to offer.
I have nice room with a comfortable king size bed and private bath in the hall. The room has a small TV and chair to relax. Just across the hall is access to the upstairs Piazza which is yours to enjoy during your stay. We are 9 miles from from downtown Charleston which is about a 20 minute beautiful drive. And we are a little less than 13 miles to Folly Beach. Johns Island itself is a beautiful quiet island community. On Johns Island we have the Angel Oak tree and America's only Tea Plantation, the Charleston Tea Plantation. You can visit both while you are here on Johns Island. We offer a very comfortable home with true southern hospitality for you to really enjoy Charleston.
Our home is a quiet place where my partner Rick and I live with our cat, a Beagle and a Lhasa Apso mix. My cat Gus is an older cat (13 years) that does not go into the quest bedroom at all and is very friendly. He will rub on you and showcase that true southern politeness. Cleatus my beagle is also very friendly and will become your pal during your stay and Angel you will just adore. But all the animals will leave you alone once you are welcomed in to our home.
You will have access to the entire Home including the kitchen and refrigerator if needed. Wifi is also available and cable is available in the living room.
Interaction with Guests
I work from home and will be around during the day in my office. We can be as interactive as any guest would like us to be in that we can show the guests Charleston or can provide suggestions and directions as needed.
Please note that although the map shows the location of my house to be in downtown Charleston, I'm actually located on Johns Island which is about a 15-20 min drive to the downtown area. It's a very beautiful and easy drive, really only two turns. I wanted to put this note out there so that there is no confusion.
As first time users of Airbnb we were very impressed with our experience! Rick and Rick's home delivered on charm, comfort, and cleanliness! Both host are very knowledgable of local destinations and eateries that will round out your trip to the Charleston area. We highly recommend that you stay with them in the future!
We had a wonderful stay with Rick. He was a great host, the house was beautiful and we immediately felt welcome. It was so easy to get into downtown charleston from their home. He helped us with restaurant recommendations and was very knowledgeable about the area. If we come back to Charleston we will definitely be looking to stay with Rick again.
Rick and Rick were awesome! They made me feel like I was staying with family, I would definitely recommend staying with them anytime:)
Rick and Rick are wonderful hosts. Their home is charming, and our entire experience with them was welcoming and stress-free. (Their pets are quiet and quite wonderful, too.) It’s an easy drive from their place into downtown Charleston. We took Rick up on his suggestion for the one dinner of our visit and it was a great one – grits and shrimp at Hominy Grill. Fabulous! Would love to come back and see the guys and the city again. Highly recommended!
Rick was an extremely good host. The pictures actually do not do the house justice - it's actually nicer in real life. When we arrived, Rick was very helpful and very thoughtful - a little card with the wifi password, brochures of the city, maps, folded towels, bed linens folded nicely etc. In the morning, we woke up somewhat later and breakfast was all laid out on the kitchen counter, along with all the kitchen appliances. Overall an extremely pleasant Airbnb stay. The neighbourhood is about 15 minutes away from town, but the area itself is very pleasant.
After having stayed at several airbnbs in a row, our stay at Rick's has been by far the best! We were warmly welcomed and Rick was happy to tell us all the great spots in Charleston. He was just a great host! The house was absolutely beautiful, everything was very clean and we loved the furniture! Overall an airbnb experience that could not have been better!
About the Host, Rick
We (Rick and Rick) live in Charleston, love the beach, good food, cooking, movies, walks, and HISTORY. I work for a technology non profit called TechSoup Global. We are working to make the world a better place through technology. And Rick owns his own cleaning business. We love to travel the U.S. and particularly love history and historical places which is what brought me to Charleston and what keeps me here. We are very easy going guys that love to socialize and entertain and we get along with most anyone.
