Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Really enjoyed our stay at Toad Hall! Joyce is the best host. We came down for the Cooper River 10k run. We had four kids and my in-laws at the house. Joyce was so accommodating to us and was a delight to be around. The kids really enjoyed the personal tour Joyce gave them on their boat and the stories of her and Fred's adventures on the sea. The setting is beautiful! Azaleas and Wisteria were in full bloom. We loved sitting out on the patio having lunch under the moss draped oaks watching the boats go by on the Stono River. My family and I highly recommend this stay. We look forward to coming back soon.

  • Our stay with Joyce and Fred was one of the most enjoyable experiences that I have had on a trip (and I have had many). The house and grounds are absolutely gorgeous and very unique. Joyce immediately makes everyone feel like they are a part of her family which really makes the atmosphere lighthearted and warm. Fred and Joyce together are very knowledgeable and wonderful to speak with about the history of the Charleston area. I had brothers and sisters showing up well before I got there and Joyce had already made them feel right at home. The breakfast was outstanding: Eggs Benedict casserole (highly recommended), fresh fruit, grits and chocolate chip pancakes for my younger daughters. As beautiful and comfortable as the home is, Joyce's grace and charm rise above that to make the stay one that is unforgettable! We will definitely be back!

  • Joyce was a wonderful host for our family get together of 8 adults and 2 toddlers. The house is beautiful and right on the water, and it's an easy 15 minute drive to downtown Charleston. She treated us like family, which was perfect!

  • Joyce and Fred live in a beautiful wooded waterfront area very close to Charleston. Their house is very accommodating, clean and perfect for a large group. We were a group of 8 people and Joyce did not have a problem providing comfortable logging for all of us. Most importantly, Joyce and Fred are wonderful and made us feel at home. Joyce fixed us breakfast and provided excellent conversation and information about the area. I highly recommend anyone to stay there it will be your best choice.

  • We've had the most wonderful time in Toad Hall. Joyce and Fred showed us what Southern hospitality is all about. We were with 7 people including our 4 and 7 year old children. The rooms were perfect. Joyce prepared delicious healthy breakfast with a southern touch - eggs, bacon and grits. Unfortunately we could only stay for two nights, but we hope to come back in the future. Highly recommended!

  • Joyce and Fred live in a nice, quaint area that is backed up to a waterway, Their house is very accommodating and upscale. But most importantly, these hosts are the nicest people I've stayed with ever on Airbnb. Granted, they do live there while we stay, but it is BETTER that they are there because of their hospitality.

    Joyce fixed us breakfast and provided excellent conversation. I highly recommend anyone to stay there as they have plenty of room.

Despite our gray hair, or lack of, my husband and I are fun-loving, active in the community, and enjoying life. We love sailing and any kind of boating and are fortunate to have our boats right at our dock. My passions are my family, especially the grandchildren, my church, gardening, flower arranging, and chocolate! We have traveled a good bit and particularly enjoyed Australia, New Zealand, St. Petersburg, Norway, and Japan and have welcomed guests from all of those places and more.. We do all we can to make sure our guests feel at home without hovering. I am retired after teaching from the elementary to the university levels. My last assignment was 10 years of teaching French at the high school and middle school levels.
