Cozy 2nd Floor Condo in a quiet, convenient neighborhood!

This is a nice condo with stainless appliances and hardwood flooring. We have a full size futon available with a brand new 6" coil mattress. WiFi (sorry, no TV), full kitchen and bathroom, and small screened in porch with seating.
This is a shared space, so not too much privacy. We also have 2 well mannered cats, and keep a clean home. For those with mobility issues, please note that we are on the 2nd floor.
A light, self-serve breakfast is complimentary. The offerings vary at any given time, but typically include: bagels & fruit. There is a drip coffee maker and both regular & decaf coffee are available, as well as assorted tea bags.
As a guest, you'll have access to our fitness center, laundry facility, and large pool with poolside WiFi & 3 large community propane grills.
There is also a business center with 2 desktop PCs, WiFi, and a printer.
Parking is free, abundant, and non-assigned.
Interaction with Guests
My wife and I are home most of the time, so there may be a some interaction, but we can give you plenty of space.
Our neighborhood is very nice and quiet. The people are friendly and the town has a lot to offer. We are just outside of Charleston - consistently voted in the top travel destinations. Lots of attractions, history, etc.
There are jogging trails adjacent to the property, and restaurants & shopping within walking distance.
Route 40 is the only way to get from Mt Pleasant into downtown Charleston, and it comes by approximately every 40 minutes.
The nearest bus stop is a mile & a half away, and will get you downtown in roughly 35 minutes.
The fare is $1.75 each way. (If you're 55+, you'll receive a 50% discount.) Bills and coins are accepted, but exact change is needed (they will not make change). You can also purchase one day ($6) or three day ($12) unlimited passes on board.
There is no regular bus service to the beach, so a taxi, personal vehicle, or bicycle is required.
Taxi service is under $10 each way to & from the beach, and usually around $20-25 each way to & from downtown Charleston.
To take full advantage of what the Charleston area has to offer you really need a car. My recommendation for a rental company would be Enterprise as the best option. They will also pick you up and drop you off, if need be.
Enterprise has locations here in town, downtown, and at the airport. The weekends are much cheaper for car rentals. You can often get a small car Friday through Monday for between $10-25/day depending on the time of year. During the week it's typically between $25-35/day.

Other Things to Note
Though I do not require guests to fully complete the new verification system, I prefer that you have a verified e-mail, phone number, profile photo, and a couple sentences describing yourself.
*There is no indoor smoking, and at this time we are unable to host pets.
*Late or early hours are not a problem, we can use a lock box and/or provide a key, if necessary.
*You're welcome to do a little laundry, but if you have more than 2 loads I'd prefer you visit the on-site laundry facility.
* The kitchen is available for a light self-serve breakfast. Help yourself to any of the fruit or bagels available. You can also use the kitchen to prepare lunch or a light dinner
Our recent stay in the Charleston area (Mount Pleasant) was wonderful! Kristen and Noel greeted us when we arrived, gave us a key, showed us around, and treated us like family! We were told to make ourselves at home, adjust the thermostat as we saw fit, and to help ourselves to whatever we wanted from the fridge!
The neighborhood was quiet and seemed somewhat secluded; however, it was actually convenient to everything! The description of the listing was straightforward and completely accurate. The space was immaculate...spotless!!!
This was our first experience with Airbnb, so we didn't quite know what to expect. It was great! We are looking forward to another visit with Kristen and Noel!
Noel and Kristen are very accommodating and courteous. They provided more amenities than we expected. Definitely recommend staying here!
I was able to make a last minute reservation with a late night arrival and Noel was very accommodating. I was searching on the airbnb app on my phone, contacted Noel and he responded very quickly. I paid using the app, Noel supplied me with his address, plugged it into my gps and was greeted at the door when I arrived. No hassles and convenient and close enough to downtown Charleston and saved myself quit a bit over any hotel in the area. Noel was more than willing to open his home to me and I was appreciative of that.
It was a good time at noels and kristens flat! It was silent in the living room and we could find much Rest!
Noel and Kristen were awesome. We really enjoyed the stay and the hospitality. You can feel it in the small details like the very cute basket in the bathroom with toothbrushes and shower gel. Thanks for opening your nice home for us!
Staying here was an awesome experience! As two female college students we were a little hesitant to stay with a stranger but we felt very comfortable! This condo was very clean and comfortable. Also the fitness center was a great resource!
My sister and I had a wonderful experience. Noel and Kristen were great; it was like staying in an extension of my own home. The location was convenient, and the bed (for a futon) was surprisingly comfortable. I'm pretty sure the sheets and pillows were the softest I had ever slept on. All in all, it was a really nice place to be at the end of a long day.
Myself in a nutshell: Musician, Entrepreneur, and (borderline) Minimalist. A tagline might read: "Live Simply, Live Mindfully". I have a profound respect for the privacy, opinions & ideals, and personal choices of each individual.
Feel free to click on "Contact Host" if you have any specific questions or comments. But enough about me.. More importantly, what about the area, and what can you expect with me as your host?
Charleston is not the place you visit if you plan on simply hanging out in the hotel all day. It's a place of exploration, adventure, and leisure. We are happy to provide a place for you to sleep, refresh, and recharge between those activities, and at a significant discount from a typical hotel stay.
Our approach could probably be described as the blending of a hotel and a hostel experience. My wife spent several years working in the hospitality industry, and we both have experience with planning & hosting events. We can provide restaurant suggestions, info on tourist destinations, and answer questions about the area.
We'll do our best to accommodate your needs, so please speak up if you have any special requirements, questions, or concerns.
Thanks, and we look forward to hosting you!
