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.

Renting the Guest House was hands down the most relaxing vacation my wife and I have ever had. No trip has ever come close. Every single little detail adds up to a magnificent stay in Charleston. Peyton and Martha were so easy to communicate with and checking into the house was a breeze. They were there to give us all of the info we needed so we could quickly unpack and unwind.
The location of the Guest House is incredible. A quick drive to the beach and into historic Charleston. And it is so nice to only be a few minutes from high quality grocery stores if you are inclined to cook at the house. Of course it is easy to see how amazing the pool area is and the lanai. Gorgeous! It is truly having a mini-resort to yourself. And, words cannot express the quality of sleep I got at the Guest House. If you are looking for a vacation where you can reset and relax, please look no further.
But, hands down, I would say the best part of my trip was getting to meet our wonderful hosts. Martha and Peyton are incredibly caring and generous and thoughtful and this trip was made even better cause we got to occasionally sit and talk with them. I can say without a doubt we will let our friends and family know about the Guest House and we will be back.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay in Peyton and Martha's guest house and so appreciated their warmth and hospitality. The accomodations were wonderful and the environment and setting were peaceful and lovely. An easy ride into downtown but tucked away in a safe, serene neighborhood. The location also afforded us more of an oppty to enjoy fantastic local restaurants such as the Glass Onion and Swig/Swine. Stay here and you will not be disappointed!
We had an exceptional time staying at the guest house in June. We had just completed a frantic period at work and this little oasis of calm was the perfect place to relax and recoup. Peyton and Martha could not have been more helpful and welcoming and although they were not at the property when we arrived they had supplied us with such good information prior to our visit that we easily got ourselves settled in. The accommodation is just perfect - having the combination of the air-conditioned guest house, the lanai and the beautiful garden and pool meant we were happy to spend most of each day at the guest house.
The guest house is extremely well furnished, finished and equipped with everything you could possibly need. If there is something not there Martha will probably find it for you e.g. footwear & sun hat for a boat trip. Might be an idea to check out what is at the house before buying groceries as we doubled up on several things that were already there. The pool and garden are beautiful and we spent most of our time relaxing around the lanai. There are ample inflatables to lounge on in the pool. Different seating areas in the garden give lots of options to chase the sun or find some shade. The property is in a residential area and there are shops for all your needs within a 5 minute drive. Charleston is also easy to get to and there is ample parking in the town.
Martha and Peyton were charming hosts and managed to balance being available and welcoming with respect for our need for privacy and quiet time.
We absolutely loved the place! The pictures don't really capture the beauty of the house. The house had everything the website said it did and lots of other things as well to make you feel at home. We really enjoyed meeting Peyton and Martha and think think they are wonderful hosts! We would definitely rent from them again and highly recommend this rental.
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.
Peyton and Martha have thought of and provided everything for your comfort and enjoyment. This is a lovely retreat that will not disappoint.
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.
