The space

This cozy studio apartment, built over the garage with parking for guests, is situated among large oak trees overlooking lowcountry marsh/tidal creek from one window and a tropical garden from another. The 'big' house and guest apartment is on 16 wooded but manicured acres, with a working greenhouse nursery on the other end of the property. We are on the upper end of Johns Island far enough out to provide peace and quiet yet less than 30 minutes from downtown Charleston and the beaches of Kiawah and Folly.
There is one full size bed and an optional twin size airbed which can be utilized for a third person.

Guest access

Guests will have use of the dock for fishing, swimming, kayaking or just loafing. Guests must sign a waiver before using the kayaks. There is a deck for alfresco dining and use of a grill should you wish to make dinner. You can stroll in the tropical garden or go for a hike on the wooded property. Excellent bird watching and you might get to see dolphins strand feeding!

Interaction with guests

This is a private space, totally self-sufficient, so host will be present, but not necessarily available to interact with guests.
Verizon Wireless and Sprint both have very good 4G service in the area which is accessible through your smartphone.

The neighborhood

Getting around
