About This Listing
Come enjoy some peace and quiet in this simple yet private, comfortable apartment located under the Oak trees of Johns Island. 20 minutes from Downtown Charleston, Folly Beach, and Kiawah.
Our space is rustic yet comfortable, bright and clean! The studio apartment is ideal for two tenants. Three can easily fit in this 500 square foot cabin if one person doesn't mind the couch or a blow-up mattress (provided).
Responsible guests have access to a fire pit.
Interaction with Guests
The guests won't see much of us unless they want to! The apartment is private. The shared yard is large.
I usually knock on the door at / or shortly after check-in but won't bother you unless needed after that. (We sometimes need access to that area of the yard to get to our boat, etc.)
Our neighborhood is rural and full of beautiful oak trees! We have sometimes have some random bikes available for renters to use. Its a pretty road down the way.....
Some guests find our shack difficult to find!
Once you arrive at Cane Slash Road, we are the 8th driveway on the left. We are the first brick house on the street - and there are 2 brick piers at the end of the driveway.
Please pull down the driveway and around to the back of our house. You will then see a large metal workshop. At that point, drive on the grass around and directly behind the metal building to park next to the picnic table at the Sleepy Shack. Ample parking is provided.
Please drive cautiously! We have a 6 year old son and an elderly dog!
Other Things to Note
Our wifi in the apartment is spotty at best. If you don't link to a cloud, you can plug a laptop into the cable provided for internet access. If you stand closer to our main house you can access it as well.
We expect the house and property to be treated as you would your own home. We want you to feel comfortable in the space. No smoking in the apartment. (Please dispose of cigarette butts in a respectful and safe manner.)
Our cleaning fee includes washing the linens, emptying the garbage, and cleaning the apartment. It does not include washing of used dishes. Please make sure all dishes, glasses and utensils are cleaned and returned to their proper location prior to departure!
Cava & Billy were great hosts. They have a wonderful home and The Sleepy Shack was everything we hoped for. We'll be recommending the location to our friends. Should the opportunity arise in the future, we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
Thanks for everything!
Such a getaway. Quiet, tucked away neighborhood that provided us with beautiful sunny mornings and starry nights. The location couldn't of been more perfect-halfway between Folly Beach and Downtown Charleston. The Shack itself had everything we needed and more. Everything was really clean and well kept, with ample linens, towels, ect. Cava and her family were very sweet, and she was quick to recommend some awesome places to eat or lay on the. beach. Staying in the Sleepy Shack truly made our trip to the Charleston area an unforgettable one!
It was very easy to communicate with Cava, she was so nice and helpful and made us feel at home when we first spoke on the phone. We were very excited when we arrived at Sleepy Shack, it was just as cute as we hoped, perfect for a 2 day adventure in Charleston. Very accessible!! Spacious, clean, comfortable, and just what we needed. Would definitely recommend a stop through to any friends traveling through the Charleston area.
Thank you Cava and Billy for an amazing time at the sleepy shack! It was clean, quiet, and comfy. My first time using Airbnb was a positive experience.
We had a great experience at the Sleepy Shack. Great privacy, wonderful location and great back yard. Such a treat to be able to see the sky and trees while using the outdoor shower! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Cava and Billy were welcoming and made us feel at home.
This listing was better than expected! We had read reviews and seen comments about it being a "hidden gem" and they were bang on. The tree-lined street leading to the property, the quaint comfortable shack, and the location on Johns Island were exactly what my husband and I were looking for on our trip. Billy & Cava made us feel welcome and met all our needs. We've been raving about our trip and recommending the Sleepy Shack to everyone back home. We're already planning our next visit!
About the Host, Cava
My artist husband and young son love the Johns Island lifestyle! We love the open space the rural environment provides. We enjoy the outdoors, heading to the beach (20 minutes away) or hopping on our boat for a spin around the waterways.
We aren't all country though! We enjoy the culture, history and fine dining that Charleston offers. Only 15 minutes away!
