Interaction with Guests
I love to visit with the guests. I've written a little book to point you in many directions to follow your passions and get the best out of your visit to our fair city, beaches and neighborhoods. I do work and am out a few hours per day. I'm always available to take care of your needs and make sure your stay is a great experience. I'm 5th generation so know my town well. I like to play games such as scrabble or join you for a movie if you are up for it. For a small fee, I provide tours of downtown in a casual way. A dog is welcome for an extra $20 per day. Friendly dogs only. Please run the variety by me.
Riverland Terrace is the best neighborhood in Charleston. It was settled in the early 1900's and is an eclectic mix of modest and extravagant. it boasts some of the largest and oldest grand Oaks in the Chas. area. Lovely to bike or ride. I love how it is surrounded on 3 sides by water. And walking distance to restaurants and shops. ALL ONLY 5 to 10 MIN. TO DOWNTOWN CHAS. and 15 min to the beach. Friendly and safe. Bird Sanctuary in my back yard. Fishing and crabbing in my backyard as well.
Most people rent cars. I highly recommend it. It is not possible to walk to the historic district due to bridges. Cars are very cheap here if you surf the web for them. Or my guests drive in. Parking is pretty easy and abundant in Chas. Some areas are free, some metered, others have parking garages. There is a bus service but it only runs a couple times per day. Some people have ridden bikes to downtown. There are bridges to cross for that and narrow streets downtown. I will do airport pick up for $30 each way.

I felt very welcomed by Crystal and only wish I could have met my host in person! Her home is lovely and her back porch is really a dream. I appreciated how she provided breakfast for guests and how thoughtfully she attended to so many details before my arrival. I will absolutely be staying at Crystal's again should I make it back to Charleston.
Crystal was a kind and accommodating host! We appreciated the clean home and beautiful setting! Thank you!
Crystal was an amazing host! So kind and funny and very knowledgable about the area. Her home was in an incredible location and was a fantastic place to spend our vacation.
When we come back to Charleston hers will DEFINITELY be the first place we look at.
We had a great time staying with Crystal. She was very welcoming and friendly, offering loads of advice on what to do in Charleston. As we didn't have a car, she even went out of her way to drive us around to some places! The room was comfortable and exactly as described, and the house is at a beautiful location. We highly recommend staying here.
Crystal made us feel like old friends from the beginning! We loved the porch that overlooked the saltwater river where birds came in, and there were plenty of great suggestions in her binder about Charleston. We would stay again!
We had a great time at Crystals. Her home was the cleanest airbnb we have stayed in!!! We would definitely stay here again. The drive to downtown Charleston took 15 minutes with traffic. Her neighborhood is quiet. She went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and at home. Her pictures are exact and her description spot on!
She welcomed us upon our arrival and immediately made us feel at home. We were able to settle in and then relax on the deck to recover from the trip down and do some map talk about locations and directions.

About the Host, Crystal
I'm a Realtor with Brand Name Real Estate here in Charleston. Also a home renovator and grateful airbnb host. I love animals and being outdoors. I enjoy great conversations, and lots of laughter. Who doesn't? I love to be active, swimming in the ocean, going to dancersize, yoga, walks around the historic district of Charleston to admire the gardens and architecture of the old homes. Good food, a nice glass of wine, quiet time in the evenings are my idea of the perfect end to the day. I like all kinds of music, old movies, slice of life, triumph over adversity in my books and movies. No violence please. I've traveled throughout the Caribbean and Latin America and own a home in Costa Rica on the Pacific Coast. Recently went to Europe and am anxious to go back. Love to have visitors to show them our beautiful sights.
