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!
My husband and I loved the shack! We stayed there for three days for a mini vacation and it was just what we were looking for! Cava and Billy were very gracious as we changed dates and times. Will definitely keep this place in mind for our next trip to Charleston!
The Sleepy Shack was the perfect place to stay after a long drive & a lot of walking for just a 24 hour trip to Charleston. We had a great night's sleep and were refreshed for the next stop in the am. I'm in love with every bit of the design of the place. Definitely hope to return to the Charleston area one day for a longer stay!
The sleepy shack was one of the unique travel experiences I have ever had! I loved reading my book out by the trees and the outdoor shower was a nice treat. The place is super close to downtown Charleston and folly beach, so we got to enjoy those very conveniently. Cava is a wonderful host, super friendly and accommodating. Thank you so much :)
The Sleepy Shack was exactly what we were looking for (&more)! After a long busy week, we wanted a relaxing space to unwind and the Sleepy Shack was perfect! Cava and Billy were wonderful hosts and made us feel right at home. They were super down to earth & lovely- we even spent the day hanging with them on their beautiful property. What a relaxing weekend. Highly recommended- book your trip now! :)
What a great place to stay! My husband and I stayed at the Sleepy Shack for two peaceful nights. Cava was a great host, giving us a wonderful suggestions for our stay. We had a list of things to do, and will have to go back to finish it! The accommodations were better than described, bigger than I expected, well appointed with all you could need and super quiet. I especially enjoyed reading on the porch, feeling the warmth and smell of spring.
What a wonderful place to stay! The Sleepy Shack is so warm and comfortable, and I felt so inspired by how the space was put together. Sitting outside was so lovely, as it backs up to the woods, with a fire pit too! I highly recommend the Sleepy Shack, and I hope to come back soon :)
We had an excellent time staying at the Sleepy Shack for a total of 3 nights. Once we arrived, we spoke briefly with Cava. She was very welcoming and gave us a tour of the place and the outdoor shower in addition to providing some really helpful recommendations. Johns Island was beautiful and quiet. The Sleepy Shack was very cozy and a great place to rest after a long day of exploring Charleston. (I’d also like to add that for those travelling in groups of three, the couch is super comfy!) My only complaint is that I wish we could have stayed longer!
As a side note, Cava was very quick to respond to any questions I had via messaging, which was greatly appreciated.
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!
