The space

I have nice room with a comfortable Queen size bed and private bath in the hall. The room has a chair to relax and just across the hall is access to the upstairs Piazza which is yours to enjoy during your stay. My home is 9 miles from downtown Charleston which is about a 20 minute beautiful drive as well as 11 miles to Folly Beach. Johns Island itself is a beautiful quiet island community. On the 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. I offer a very comfortable home with true southern hospitality for you to really enjoy Charleston.

My home is a quiet place where I live with my 17 year old cat Gus, and a great Beagle named Cleatus. My cat Gus 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 is also very friendly and will become your pal during your stay. But both animals will leave you alone once you are welcomed in to our home.

Guest access

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. I can be as interactive as any guest would like me to be in that I can show the guests Charleston or can provide suggestions and directions as needed.

Other things to note

I serve up Bagels Fruit, Juice and coffee/tea each morning for you to enjoy.

We had a excellent stay! Rick was a gracious host and has a lovely home. The house was clean and orderly and the complementary breakfast was the cherry on top! We got to enjoy the outside patio and hammock during our stay. Rick's animals, Cleatus and Gus were very sweet, well behaved, and never under foot. We would highly recommend staying in Rick's home!

Rick and Rick met all our expectations, their home and animals were all lovely. Me and my girlfriend Natalie both could not stop talking about how cute and perfect everything was! Very inviting, We had our own key and it was very easy breezy to get in and out. They left breakfast coffee and pink muffins etc. (which was fantastic) friendly but not in your face so you can do your own thang. 11 out of 10 stars. Thank you so much! - Rebekah

Rick was VERY warm and welcoming! We only stayed overnight for a wedding but the couple times we spoke with him he was extremely friendly. We also love his two dogs and cat! The house is beautiful and location is great. Will DEFINITELY stay there again next time we are in Charleston.

Rick and Rick were just lovely! This was our first Airbnb experience and it was a fantastic way to start off... they set the bar high. Their home was clean and comfortable... and it was nice to have bagels, fresh fruit, and coffee before we hit the road :)

Rick and Rick were fantastic hosts with a gorgeous home! I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else. Here's what you need to know: - check-in and check-out were super easy - the room (and whole house) was beautiful! comfy bed, plenty of space, a private bathroom, and a beautiful piazza (balcony) to enjoy. the house is in a very quiet, safe neighborhood where everyone waves as you go by :) - their pets are quiet, sweet and loving, and will stay out of your room - they set out a lovely, delicious breakfast in the morning with coffee, fresh fruit and pastries - they own a coffee shop in downtown Charleston called "The Bearded Cafe".... it's mustache and beard themed, and I highly recommend the cold brew... it's seriously amazing. - they are the kindest people you could ever hope to meet! I'd stay here again in a heartbeat!

If you ever feel the urge to suddenly fly (down/up/over) to Charleston, South Carolina, please do the right thing, and stay with Rick and Rick. What!? ...you don’t know what you’d do in Charleston! Just ask Rick and Rick, and have fun! Not only will there be a lovely place for you to stay, but there will also be animal friends, two Ricks, and delightful coffee to enjoy. Rick and Rick helped us find wonderful local attractions. The Battery and the Charleston Tea Plantation to name a couple! Downtown is just a short car ride away, and the food is great in Charleston. Tom and I had a great time, and will fondly remember staying with The Bearded Cafe guys! If we can, we hope to stop by again, and grab a great cup of coffee!

During my stay, I was only fortunate enough to meet with one Rick; however, from the moment he opened the door until I said goodbye to him after visiting "The Bearded Café", which is the coffee shop he owns, my stay with Rick was nothing short of fantastic. My boyfriend and I live in the same state, only two hours away from Charleston, but we needed a quick place to stay while we attended a wedding near by. My reservation was quickly accepted and we kept in constant communication regarding my stay up until the moment I arrived. The home is warm, inviting, and full of character. The care that you get from the hosts is just as much as the love you get from their two adorable dogs and loving cat. Upon arriving, we received a wonderful tour of Rick and Rick's outstanding home. You have full access to the house and its amenities, including the beautiful upstairs porch. Local coffee, fruit, and baked goods await you downstairs in the morning and gives the place a personal touch that no hotel can match. The bed was comfortable, the room had plenty of storage space, and the bathroom was perfect for my stay. If you are looking for a place to stay near Charleston or any of its surrounding islands, please look no further than this listing. I have had my reservations regarding having a private room in someone's home, but Rick made sure to put that awkwardness to rest. Book your stay, enjoy the area, enjoy coffee from Rick and Rick's coffee shop, "The Bearded Café", and enjoy the time talking to these two locals, they can tell you a lot!

I am Rick and I live in Charleston on Johns Island. I love the beach, good food, cooking, movies, and HISTORY. I work for a technology non profit called TechSoup Global. We are working to make the world a better place through technology. I also own a small coffee shop in downtown Charleston called The BEARDED cafe. I 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. I am very easy going and love to socialize and entertain and I get along with most anyone.
