Eve was great host for our stay in the Charleston area. We loved her house! Everything was clean and tidy, and just as described. The neighborhood was beautiful and quiet. The back yard was big and well-maintained. We were close to everything; we had a five minute drive to the beach and 15 minutes to the city. It was a great way to spend the 4th of July holiday!
Eve made us feel very welcome in her house. Everything was as described and she even borrowed a pack'n play and a high chair for our baby daughter, which was very helpful. We definitely would stay there again.
Eve made us feel very welcome. There was a binder with all of the information we needed to know. She was very friendly, and checked in regularly to make sure everything was okay. The neighborhood is a quiet and safe residential neighborhood and friendly. There was minimal traffic. The listing accurately described the house.
Eve's house was perfect for our family vacation. We wanted to spend Christmas in a house where we could feel at home and not a cold hotel room, and that's exactly how we felt: at home! Lovely garden, quiet residential neighborhood, a 10mn walk from groceries store, and a perfect home-base to explore, as nothing is more than a 10 mn drive away: downtown Charleston, Sullivan's Island, Isle of Palms, Boone Hall plantation... Eve was quick to answer and helpful during our exchanges, and I definitely recommend renting her house!
Our "digs" at Eve's were perfect! Everything was very tidy and organized. Darling neighborhood...we were able to take great walks in the neighborhood to the river with lots of lovely homes to look at. As you turn onto Eve's street, in the middle of the road is a HUGE live oak tree...that was a "tourist rush" just to see that!!! I would definitely recommend this location.
About the Host, Eve
I love nature and appreciate the bird and marine life so abundant here. I go out early morning to look for turtle tracks on the beach as part of the turtle team. I have a small garden, enjoy travelling, reading, and playing games!
