The Space

Enjoy "Island Time" on beautiful James Island. We are located 10 minutes to Charleston the Holy City and only 2 minutes to Folly Beach.
Amenities abound in this elevated 3 bedroom home. In addition to your bedroom, you also have access to a private deck, PRIVATE BATH, covered porch (with hammocks) and a den, complete with a TV, wine cooler (which you have unlimited wine for no cost) , wet bar and a full size (fully stocked) fridge and kitchenette. There is also a laundry in your area for your use. We do share the stairway only, so you may see us come up at night with the dogs. If motivated, a fully equipped exercise room next to your room is available, and after a long day, relax in your Jacuzzi tub (in your private bath). All 5 rooms Plus the Media Room is all yours. This is a single bedroom suite, with 3 additional rooms. Not to be confused with 4 bedrooms. I have another bed in the exercise room that can be used as a 2nd bedroom. Parents love having babies stay in the media/theater room with it's soundproofed walls and blackout curtains.
Relax on your private deck with some wine and take in the gorgeous marsh sunsets. Or nap away the afternoon on a hammock on the covered porch. For the more active vacationers, you have access to walk the acres of protected salt marsh, right in your back yard. You may choose to bike the two miles to folly beach, or take a 3 mile hike on the marsh lined nature trail, one block away(URL HIDDEN)try to provide anything you may need for your stay. I give you bath salts for the Jacuzzi, bathroom supplies, bikes to ride to the beach, beach towels and beach chairs with books. I also will provide complimentary beer, wine, cereal, bagels, fruit, juice, milk, soda, coffee, tea, and fresh muffins. Don't worry, there is no additional charge for any of this. The full size fridge in your suite is fully stocked but still has plenty of room to bring your favorite goodies.
Don't worry, if mother nature steps in and ruins your outdoor plans, we can set you up in our unique home theatre. Imagine watching the game on a 10 foot screen. Now with NFL SUNDAY TICKET , and all movie channels thru Directv in all rooms. We also have over 600 movies available for your watching pleasure.
So if you love crabbing, shrimping, swimming, biking, bocci ball, croquet, relaxing, and having an all around fun time. Come on over, we know you'll love it. If you have a third guest/ child we change the exercise room to a second bedroom. We have a twin bed or queen inflatable for your use in that extra room if needed.

Guest Access

Guests have the full right side of the house. There are common stairs that go upstairs but we never go in your areas except for delivering breakfast and a daily clean up. The upper front porch which has your personal hammocks, the upper sun deck for lounging out in the recliners, the home theater room is also yours, as is your private bath, private den, laundry, and kitchenette area in the den. We only have one set of guests at a time, so no need to share areas. This is all yours.

Interaction with Guests

I will give the grand tour, and then leave it up to you. Some guests love interaction, and some prefer the privacy. I do not push anything on anyone. It is your vacation, do as you please. We both work seven days , and are downstairs in the evenings till bedtime. So we are available if needed but are on different floors 90% of the time. You may see us go to bed , since we share the stair way and will need to walk by your den. Other than that we try to give you all the privacy we can.

The Neighborhood

It is a very small neighborhood with only two streets. This is a married with no children development and is very quiet. Everyone is very welcoming and dog friendly.

Getting Around

Yes there is buses available and it is easily accessible being only 2 blocks away. Once you arrive downtown there are trolleys to be taken, rickshaws are also very easily obtained. There is plenty of parking in the driveway, and we have listings of cab companies in the room if you need a ride anywhere.

Other Things to Note

Unfortunately we need to say we can,t host dogs under 30 pounds. Our goldens seem to intimidate little dogs, and our dogs and ourselves are getting bit. If your dog is aggressive, you need to know that our dogs will walk by your den when going to bed, so probably not a good fit.

House Rules
