  • Crystal was a wonderful host! Her home is perfectly located for beach days and nights downtown. She did a great job of making us feel right at home and offered plenty of recommendations for dining, sightseeing, tours, transportation, and things to do in and around the area. The room is very private and the deck area is a perfect way to end a day (or begin an evening). Overall a terrific experience. We had an amazing time and hope to come back soon!!

  • This room and bath and host was the best part of our stay. Beautiful accommodation, very accommodating host, and lots of photo ops outdoors by the salt marsh. I would definitely recommend this place.

  • My husband and I really liked the large room overlooking the deck and the water. Crystal was a gracious hostess and opened up her kitchen for our use, even providing fresh eggs from her neighbor's hen and organic juices and cereals, etc. The deck was a wonderful place for coffee and wine by the water. Downtown isn't far - about a 10-minute drive from the house.

  • My husband and I had a very nice experience at Crystal's home. The room is lovely and had everything we needed. The back deck allowed us to enjoy coffee in the mornings and relaxation in the evenings. Location was convenient to the Angel Oak, a must see, and the mansions. Downtown Charleston was an easy ride, also. Crystal was a very friendly and informative hostess.

    April 2014
  • Our stay with Crystal was awesome. She was extremely knowledgeable about the area, and was helpful with recommendations. The upstairs 1BD/1BA was perfect for our stay in Charleston. The room has lots of space and your own private bathroom. The back deck is great for relaxing while having a morning coffee, and it's a short drive to the downtown area. Thanks Crystal!

  • We had a very nice stay with Crystal, who is a friendly and gracious host. It was an easy drive to downtown Charleston from her neighborhood, though we really enjoyed staying close and taking advantage of the local restaurants and entertainment.

    April 2014
  • We had a delightful experience staying at Crystal's residence. She is an excellent hostess and went out of her way to make us comfortable. It is within walking distance to a couple of restaurants and short drives to many of the local sights of Charleston. We would definitely stay with her again.

About
I'm a Realtor for Re/Max Pro Realty. 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.
