Interaction with Guests
There are only two of us and we interact with the one or two of you staying in the totally separate guest house as much or as little as you choose. We have had guests that choose to never interact and others that enjoy drinks on the lanai or around the pool in the evening to ask questions about the day and discuss their adventures of the day.
Extremely Quiet. Close to everything, but out of the hustle and bustle. Neighborhood has camellia and azaleas everywhere and lovely landscaping throughout.
I understand that swimming without a lifeguard constitutes risk. I understand that I am solely responsible for my safety and the safety of my guests. Children will be supervised at all times. I agree to assume all risks of loss, injury or death of any kind whatsoever caused by or reasonably flowing from my decision to swim without a lifeguard present and I agree to hold harmless the owners of the property.
Our stay with Peyton and Martha was a dream of ease. Sweet and cordial, they did and provided whatever was needed. The pool and plantings are gorgeous, the lanai fantastic and the abode cozy and welcoming. Their caring touch was evident from the chocolates that greeted us in the house, the flashlights on the nightstands, a clothes brush in the closet and more. We spent time outside and found it very relaxing and sometimes did not want to leave! The location is in a safe neighborhood very convenient for touring Charleston and surrounding area.
Martha and Peyton are wonderful people and hosts. Staying in their guest house was completely restful as it is in a tranquil spot - Edgewater Park on the other side of the Ashley River. Walking around the neighborhood is relaxing, and folks come from far and wide to witness the sunsets from the bridge that overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway. There is amazing bird life in the marshes.
I grilled on the guest house's,spacious built-in BBQ many times and sat by the pool reading and enjoying the garden and live oaks at the end of the day. It was just the wrong time of year for swimming but the pool is large and it will seve well in the HEAT of Charleston summer.
There is a fab fireplace outside - a wonderful place to get cosy with yourself or a friend. Peyton and Martha have travelled extensively and know what it takes to make things comfortable for guests. The mattress is FANTASTIC and adjustable.
Run, don't hesitate to stay for a week or longer at the Charleston Guest House in Charleston's quiet zone which is so close to the historic hubbub that is usually crammed with visitors.
About the Host, Peyton
We have taken early retirement to enjoy life and travel. Our guest house is a source of pride for us and we work very hard to be good hosts to all our guests. We originally built this for a combination pool house and guest house with lanai for entertaining our friends and guests. We have decided to share with others because it is our own little resort.8 miles to downtown - 15-20 minutes drive time. Minutes from the airport, outlet shopping, plantations and the beaches. Close to everything without the hassel of everyone. Our neighborhood is very quiet and highly respected area with large live oak trees. We have 4 extrodinary ones on our property.
Peyton loves rebuilding old cars. He has a 1939 Master Deluxe Chevrolet streetrod and Martha has an original red (phone number hidden)SL convertible with hardtop. Martha loves entertaining, walking, water aerobics, and time with our 2 sons, daughter-in-law and granddaughter.
