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.
Enjoy a fire in the fire pit, heat up the grill for some fresh seafood or take a hot shower under the stars!
The Sleepy Shack is simple, 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).
Plenty of parking! Full access to the yard.
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.)
The Sleepy Shack is within walking distance to Low Tide Brewery and very close to various dining options. Catch a movie at the Terrace Theater or enjoys some live music at The Pour House (within 5 miles).
Come explore Johns Island - The Vineyard, Sweet Water Distillery, the Tea Plantation, Angel Oak, the Johns Island Farmers Market. The wide, quiet beaches of Kiawah are 20 minutes away.
Or hop over to neighboring James Island to enjoy the many offerings of Folly Beach. Check out the fishing and surfing at the pier, or relax in the tidal pools, or shop and dine on the main drag. Grab some fresh Seafood from Crosby's or Huff's and bring it back to cook on the grill!
James Island County park is about 7 minutes from the apartment and offers scenic bike / walking trails and a great opportunities for fun with the kids!
20 minutes from the heart of Downtown Charleston!
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 8 year old son who likes to play in the yard!
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!
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund, including service fees.
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!
