Cute One-bedroom: 3 miles between both downtown Charleston & Sullivan's Island Beach. Walking distance to many stores & food... a porch, yard, & private parking. This is a place to feel grounded, at home, relax, meditate, enjoy the city & beach.
main room ... eating area and a fouton couch that can open up if you like... yoga mats, hula hoops and a xylophone to play with!
This is a sweet landing pad for your beach trip. .. Or visit to Charleston.... your own little space to feel welcome.
I'm an artist, yogi, lady... I open my home to guests who can appreciate it... you can prepare a simple meal, take a bath or meditate... My house is painted pretty colors, eclectic decor, clean with books and flowers... There is no dishwasher, microwave or TV ... I have a hot plate, toaster oven, and full size fridge ... Internet will be installed any day now ... so ask me if this is vital ... there's bedding for 3, but it might feel crowded... its a great get away for 1-2 people...
I have just made a bunch of improvements including: a new - quiet - a/c ... another bedroom (no longer a studio) and real bed (queen/mattress) ! The living room has a twin size day bed and the fouton couch that folds out. Also an eating area.
This is a cement bungalow - duplex building. My space is one half of the building ... In a simple neighborhood, with a front & back lawn. You can drive up and park right next to my front door. There is a small step up to the little porch, so it's nice for someone who has limited mobility.
Interaction with Guests
I usually leave the key out for you - and a note on the fridge ... you can always reach me by text ...
You can walk behind the building to a bank, Starbucks, a yoga center, several great restauraunts, a cafe, a bar and a bike shop (Mikes Bikes across the street).
The beach is 3 miles down the road ... And parking at the beach is free.
Downtown Charleston is just 3-5 miles from my place in the opposite direction. It's feels like a town & country retreat.
I am right off the main drag, (Coleman Blvd) so it's super easy and fast to find my place and get to places by car.
I'm not sure about public transport but if there r busses, they go right by my place.
Other Things to Note
This is not a five star hotel ... You will find helpful things of mine that I share like shampoo, tea, toiletries, cooking spices, bathsalts, office supplies, books, games and yoga mats. I have wi-fi and a phone, but no tv. Bring ur laptop if u want to watch a movie... if u like simple living you will likely feel comforable here.
I am new at air b&b so please be understanding & make this easy and fun for me ... While I get the hang of this. Please communicate with me directly - first and foremost - before posting anything negative.
Some other obvious things: no smoking inside, no excessive alcohol or drugs, or parties.
No pets sorry.
My neighbors keep to themselves, but if they do want to chat... please don't share my business with them.
The place is as described. Worked perfectly for us. Lea was quick to respond. The area was near great food options and Starbucks! Easy to find. Not a lux spot but, for the money, worth it! If you want to cook this is not the spot since it's a minimal kitchenette.
We loved our stay at Lea's place! It's a great location between the beach and downtown. We were very close to restaurants, grocery stores, and coffee shops. Lea's place was very clean and she left great instructions. Thanks for everything!
We enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was nothing fancy, as we expected based on the description, but it was very comfortable and perfect for our weekend of exploring Charleston as first-time visitors. The bed and couch were comfortable. Though we had no personal interaction with Lea, she made it very easy to check in and check out. It's perfectly located, about 10 minutes from the beautiful historic district and an easy 10 minute drive to Isle of Palms beach. Mount Pleasant isn't necessarily a tourist destination, but it was really, really nice having a Starbucks, a sandwich shop, a nice bar (The Southern) and a gourmet grocery just across the parking lot from the cottage.
Lea's place was perfect for our trip! The location was as close to Charleston as it was to Sullivan Beach. There were plenty of restaurants, cafes, grocery stores, etc close by. The house itself was simple, peaceful and private. Such a great value. We were able to make simple meals, and were grateful for the basic kitchen and food supplies. The place was clean and cozy with thoughtful decorations and plenty of basic house supplies. We enjoyed the DVD's, books and board games. There was a new AC unit in the bedroom when we got there, and it was as quiet as a window unit can get. We slept soundly at night. I will definitely look to stay here again when I return to Charleston, and I would highly recommend anyone else choose this sweet retreat for their beach vacation.
Good and cozy place in a great location. Just a short drive to the beach. Lea was a good host and everything went smooth for our stay.
Lea was great to work with, everything went very smoothly! The cottage is accurately described and is in a really great central location for visiting downtown Charleston and area beaches. There are also lots of cute restaurants and antique stores in the neighborhood.
Such the perfect location! Minutes from Sullivan Beach and minutes from downtown Charleston. If I could choose a place to live it would be here. We had a fantastic time and the accomadations where just what we needed.
