Nestled at the end of an avenue of Live Oaks, our lowcountry guesthouse offers a peaceful retreat with all of the modern conveniences. Our property is home to beautiful birds, turkey & deer. We are centrally located with easy access to downtown Charleston, Folly, and the airport in 20 minutes, 15 minutes to Kiawah, Seabrook and Wadmalaw Islands. Dinner nearby at Johns Island restaurants, Wild Olive/Fat Hen, or cook up your own fresh catch of the day!

The space
(Permit ZSTR-02-21-00319/LIC-1-21-244769) Life is a little slower and quiet here. With a gravel road, ample trees to include an avenue of Grand Live Oaks and natural buffers, we have created a home away from home for our family and closest friends and extend it now to you. You will feel further from town than you actually are. Gas lanterns, ceiling fans and rocking chairs on the porch, fresh percale sheets & usually fresh eggs from our chickens depending on the time of year. Wild turkeys roost in the trees and deer come usually twice a day. Owls sound off about 5 p.m. An old syrup kettle on a bed of crushed oyster shell under the oaks makes for the best fire and s'mores. Guests can enjoy a Pawley's Island hammock placed behind the cottage in the perfect spot for a Sunday afternoon nap. If you like to cook - we have pretty much everything you need including a captain you can charter for fresh seafood. If not, let us know how we can help you and there is plenty close by to choose from. Should the weather not cooperate during your stay, relax and enjoy the sound of rain on a tin roof.

Visitors should note we have three steps to the entrance of the cottage and the second bedroom is located on the second floor. Each bedroom has its own private full bath and washer/dryer is available from the Master bedroom. Our kitchen affords granite countertops, is equipped with stainless steel appliances to include a large refrigerator, microwave, stove and dishwasher. We have a Keurig coffee maker with the assorted accoutrements needed for a fresh brewed cup in the morning as well as herbal teas and all the cookware necessary to make a gourmet meal.

Our wraparound porch is perfect for morning coffee and bird watching with four rocking chairs and a dining table.

The upstairs loft includes a perfectly placed handmade desk by a local craftsman with Folly Beach reclaimed wood looking out over the field as well as a big comfy chair in the reading nook for passing the time with your favorite novel. Business class wifi is available throughout and cable TV in the great room.

Sharing our private little slice of heaven, we are also sharing our love of all things beautiful as we have carefully curated a collection of original art, sculpture, antiques, and books from southern artisans for Captain’s Quarters. The cottage hosts antique heart pine floors perfect for bare feet, a four-post lowcountry rice bed with Tempur-Pedic mattress in the master, custom leather bed with feather bed mattress topper in the second en suite, designer linens, pillows, and throws. Our wish is that those that visit leave with the feeling of not only being taken care of but also inspired by the simple good life.

*** IMPORTANT*** In the spirit of making everyone happy with our accommodations, please note we provide a quiet refuge for those guests listed on the reservation. Only the guests listed on the reservation will be permitted on the grounds. If you are looking to invite additional family and friends, host a party or drop-in, elope on the grounds or have a wedding, this listing is NOT for you. We do not make exceptions - please do not ask. Charleston County has allowed limited days for our rental and requires a different permit for wedding events. If you do not have your own transportation, this listing will not be suitable in the Charleston area. Uber/Lyft drivers are not permitted to drive on the grounds due to previous damage to the grounds and safety concerns. Please note our location: We are not in downtown Charleston and we are not on the beach. We live and reside full time in the main home next to the cottage (our guesthouse) which is required in Charleston County.

Guest access
Registered guests have full access to the entire 1,400 sf cottage which includes a closet in the half-bath stocked with sunscreen, bug spray, extra toiletries and beach towels. Registered guests are welcome to enjoy the cottage wraparound porches, grounds, hammock under the oak trees behind the cottage and syrup kettle fire pot on those chilly evenings under the stars.

Other things to note
While we are relatively new to Airbnb, we are not new to hosting our family and friends. We have a special place and love sharing it with those looking for a personal retreat. If there is something you need or questions we can answer to make you feel more at home and enjoy your stay, please let us know. We provide all the latest and greatest tips and recommendations upon arrival to set our guests up for an awesome visit. Guests will need to provide their own vehicle for transportation.

Location

Johns Island, South Carolina, United States

Charleston and its surrounding sea islands are overflowing with beauty both on land and on the water. World-class experiences abound in this town for the history buff, culinary lover, arts and culture seeker, photographer, outdoor explorer and fisherman.

Captain's Quarters is located on the sea island, Johns Island, outside of Charleston, at the end of a private winding gravel road surrounded by woods. We are conveniently 20 minutes away from Charleston International Airport. Johns Island is centrally located among downtown proper and most all areas of interest within a 20-25 minute radius.

The grounds of Captain's Quarters provide a beautiful, safe, quiet and tranquil refuge. At the end of a long day, it is the perfect respite for peace and solitude.

**Please note our location: We are not in downtown Charleston and we are not on the beach. We live and reside full time in the main home next to the cottage. Guests will need their own transportation. Uber/Lyft drivers are not permitted on the grounds.
