This is a great place! Excellent wi-fi, air-conditioning and heat, fully-stocked kitchen with microwave, fridge and stove/range. It has a California-King bed in master bedroom; queen in smaller room, both have bathrooms. Futon can sleep extra person!
This is a nice, new 2-bedroom condo 10 minutes from Folly Beach and 15 minutes from downtown Charleston, SC. It has great air-conditioning and heat, a fire place, a big California queen size bed in the main bedroom and a queen bed in the second bedroom, which has its own separate bathroom. The condo also has a comfy futon in the living room that can sleep one person (it's a full size).
The kitchen is fully equipped, with a good refrigerator, and a washer and dryer is on hand, making it really convenient for extended stays. There is a small back porch/garden area, and a walking trail in the neighborhood, which is really nice. The condo is in a very safe neighborhood.
The main bedroom is equipped with a 63" plasma television and an awesome sound system. I don't have cable or an internet connection. The place is very clean, and a strive to be a great host!.
I have been a Chiropractor and massage therapist for over 23 years, and I offer both services to my guests, either at my Chiropractic office or at the condo (for massage therapy). So if you arrive in Charleston with some physical discomfort and want to really relax on your trip, let me know and we'll arrange a time where you can receive some wonderfully relaxing body work! (My book "The Chiropractor's Health Book," is the all-time leading bestselling self-help book for Chiropractic patients, and is available on (website hidden).)
I know the area well, and can advise you on the best local restaurants beaches.
You'll have access to the full house, plus a small patio in the backyard, walking trails which meander through the woods are right outside the back yard. James Island Country park is 5 minutes away, offering kayaking, canoeing, walking trails and playgrounds for kids.
Interaction with Guests
You can usually just let yourself in. My assistant, Ann Wallace, will help you with anything that comes up during your stay.
The best thing about my condo is it's location! It is literally a 12 minute drive to the beach; 15 minutes to downtown. James Island has wonderful restaurants, a fantastic county park, and there's a Super Wal-Mart with groceries 3-minutes away for anything you need on your trip. The neighborhood is very quite, with tree-lined streets.
Charleston doesn't have quality public transit unless you are downtown, where buses, trolleys and human rickshaws make it easy to get around once you've parked.
Other Things to Note
I use airbnb whenever I travel and have had nothing by wonderful experiences each time I've booked a place through them. I strive to give you a similar experience at my place. I also rent a studio apartment on West 70th Street in NYC is you ever travel to NY. It's listed under "Cheap Chic Close To Everything". It's a wonderful place, too!
Leave the place as you found it, please. Put used linens in the bathtub. Put dirty dishes in the dishwasher. No need to take the trash out. Please don't play loud music past 10pm.
The location was in a very nice quite neighborhood,it was convenient to everything we needed as far as travel time into Charleston. James Island has a great downtown area and the beaches were amazing. For the most part the condo was very nice, it's decorated very funky and there was no TV in the main living area only in the master bedroom and that one was huge.There was also no cable for the TV which meant you have to have either DVD's or bring some type of device to watch it. Like a Google Chrome Cast,Amazon TV etc. I think the fact that it rained a lot while we were there made the TV more of a factor . The WiFI worked well just a tad slow. It was well equipped with almost everything we needed. The Walmart that's about 2-3 miles away has everything you can think of so that was very helpful. The second bathroom in the guest bedroom's tub didn't drain well so you had to plan on a very short shower. The condo was clean,had clean linens,towels etc. For the price I was fairly satisfied with what we got.
The location was perfect for us to go downtown or to the beach within 15-20 min. The neighborhood was peaceful, the condo was cozy, the decor was fun, and we had everything we needed for our spring vacation - even plenty of hot water for the three of us girls!
Great place and communication, will definitely be back for further foodie adventures in the Holy City!
The location was extremely convenient and the decor extremely memorable. There was a mix up with the cleaners who did not come when they were supposed to, but Leonard's assistant, Ann, was very nice and made sure someone came the next morning.
Three of us stayed at Leonard's after a few days in downtown Charleston. We loved the James Island location (relatively convenient -- with a car -- to Folly Beach, the historic plantations, the tea plantation and the Angel Oak, all of which we visited from there). There's a WalMart nearby, and a range of good eating options in Folly Beach and on Folly Road. And we really loved the spacious, well-equipped house with its very 'chic' decor in a pleasant peaceful suburban neighbourhood. Arrival and departure were simple and smooth. A great place to stay!
This is a great location and very easy to access! It took us about 10 minutes to get into downtown Charleston and was very easy to find. The condo was very spacious for two couples and a baby, each room with its own connecting bathroom. And the price made it even better- we could not have found a place in such a great location and so much room (2bed/2bath, full kitchen, living room, etc) for such a great price! The decor is quite unique, but the condo was clean and had plenty of room! Leonard's assistant, Ann, was very helpful and sweet. Our internet was out when we arrived and Ann came over to the condo to get it fixed. When we return to Charleston again, we will definitely try to stay at Leonard's cheap chic condo! It was a great experience in a really nice/ safe feeling neighborhood. We appreciate the great hospitality!
The location of the condo was excellent, providing easy access to downtown Charleston, Folly Beach, nearby islands, shopping, and good restaurants. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. Other aspects of the stay were disappointing. We said that four people would be visiting but the kitchen table had only three chairs. The lighting in the living room and master bedroom was dim and inadequate for reading in the evening. Most closets were locked and none was available in the master bedroom, which also lacked side tables. The owner said that TV and wi-fi would be available but they were not working. We called the contact number and were told that our host was out of the country but would get back to us. This did not happen. We hope that the rental fees will be adjusted to account for the lack of these services.

I'm a Chiropractor here on James Island and enjoy renting out the condo and sharing my experience of beautiful Charleston. My other Airbnb property is in New York City, and is a wonderful little studio apartment in the heart of Manhattan. The Charleston condo is in a truly a wonderful location...minutes from the beach and downtown, and there's a Super Wal-Mart 3 minutes away, which makes getting groceries and beach supplies really convenient. The New York studio is on a quiet block on the Upper West Side, with world-class restaurants and shopping within a few steps of the front door. Look forward to hosting you!
