The Space

800SF Suite located at the top floor of our house on tidal Creek:
Enjoy the privacy of your own the 2 bedrooms, private bathroom and TV room on their separate floor as the whole upstairs is left to our guests (one family only at the time). Stay in Charleston in a lovely, quiet and picturesque environment .

Discover our peaceful southern backyard and relax. Very close to the beach and town. From our deck it is literally a stones throw into the marsh. The view into the marsh constantly changes as the tide ebbs and floods. We have all manner of wildlife in and around the marsh, particularly birds. We commonly see egrets, herons (including Great Blues), ducks, and ibis. Discover our easy-going lifestyle.

Our home is set beautifully in a quiet neighborhood on James Island, close to EVERYTHING: minutes to downtown and to the beach (Folly Beach). Our neighborhood is very quiet and family-friendly. There is a large freshwater lake in the middle of the neighborhood with a public dock and green space.

Charleston is considered among the most beautiful, historic cities along the east coast and one of the top cities to visit in the nation. Discover the sandy beaches, history, charm, fine dining, antiques, plantations, antebellum homes, parks...Discover the beauty and diversity of Folly Beach, unique and charming barrier island town fondly referred to by locals as the "Edge of America".

We have 2 bedrooms available upstairs with their own private bathroom and a large private TV room. It is actually more a suite than a bedroom! We can welcome 4 people max.

- Booking for 2 will only give you acces to one bedroom; make sure that you book for 3 if you need 2 bedrooms (even if it is for one guest in each room).

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had such a great time in Charleston! Brent and Elena's place was awesome! It's super close to Folly beach and also downtown. Our experience would not have been the same without meeting Brent, Elena and their awesome dog, Hootah!

  • We loved this airbnb. It was very close to historic Charleston and the beach. It was also very comfortable . We had the whole upstairs , which consisted of two bedrooms , a tv room, and a bathroom . The hosts were not there , due to a family emergency , but Elena checked in with us every day. Thank you

  • Comfortable house, clean and well kept. There is a dog at the home, a lovely, well trained dog named Hooter.

    Difficulty was that there was no emergency contact number available should problems occur. Also, we had difficulty turning on the TV and getting anything except snow on the screen.

  • Brent and Elena's home is beautiful. They are only a few minutes from downtown Charleston and from Folly Beach. Unfortunately, they were called out of town at the last minute but were kind enough to let us stay as scheduled. They have a wonderful dog who welcomed us every time we came in. Their thoughtfulness for our situation is admirable considering the last minute nature of their need to be elsewhere.

  • We did not have an opportunity to meet Brent and Elena because they were out of town due to a family emergency. They were very good about communicating with us before and during our stay.
    We enjoyed staying at their house and the upstairs area is a very nice space with a lot of nice amenities for travelers. The house is located in a very quiet area and we slept very well. It's a great choice for Charleston!

  • Brent & Elena were great hosts! The home is located nicely between downtown Charleston and Folly Beach, about a 15 drive to downtown and 10 minutes to Folly Beach! Nice, quiet neighborhood and very clean home with a very friendly dog! They were very easy to communicate with and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We ate at some places near Folly Beach and really enjoyed that- highly recommend the Black Magic Cafe.

  • We found the home spotless, well appointed, and spacious in a lovely neighbourhood. It was convenient for getting downtown and to Folly beach. If I return to Charleston would definitely like to book again.

  • Brent and Elena were fantastic hosts they gave us great suggestions of places to go eat and see. Their home is located perfectly between Folly Beach awesome beach town and downtown Charleston less than 10 minutes either way. I look forward to returning. Eric

  • My first experience with airbnb and it was exactly what I expected. I arrived late Friday and drove to Brent and Elena's house. Brent stayed up late so he could welcome me and then introduce me to the quarters.

    Their house is set up perfectly so that you could walk in the front door and go straight up stairs to your room if you just want some privacy. But, if you wanted to hang and chat with Brent and Elena, they would be more than happy to. Each morning, they provided freshly brewed coffee (strong) and breakfast and did not hassle at what time I came home. This is exactly what I expected from airbnb hosts.

    And I don't want to end my review without mentioning Hooter the Weimaraner. She was the most obedient dog I have ever been around. She would stick to you like glue if you let her and of course I let her! She's so adorable, it's hard not to ignore her.

  • Brent and Elena were incredible hosts. The accommodations were perfect, breakfasts a treat (pancakes, fresh bread), and their knowledge of the area was super helpful. My first time with Airbnb and first time in Charleston. Great trip!

We are a French/American couple who loves to travel and meet new people. Elena is a teacher and Brent is retired. Elena ran a Bed and Breakfast in France for over 10 years. We both enjoy hiking, live music, good wine and good beer! Brent loves to surf (Stand Up Paddleboard). We have access to the water from our backyard. We both love Charleston and can suggest nice restaurants, parks and other locals only places.
