About This Listing
An amazing get away that feels like the country while being close to the city. The quaint little home is surrounded on 2 sides by an incredible spring fed pod, nature activities, and nurturing quietude. Relax, and refresh in sustainability!
Located on Johns Island, which is 8.6 miles from Downtown Charleston, SC & 23 mins from Kiawah Island & Beach, this is like a private cabin campground getaway :) Set in the rural back yard and farmlands of Charleston, this 8.5 acres is completely set up for nature walks in the woods, a swimming hole complete with a zip line into the water, large garden, picnic tables, fire pit, kayaks and boats for enjoying the nearly 4 acres of spring fed ponds.
The building has a small and fully functional kitchen, a toilet, outdoor shower, dining space & den, a lovely screened porch & fantastic views of the water. The upstairs, is only accessible by romantic and fun ATTIC STYLE LADDER, and has a double bed, drawers and clothing rack. We have lots of kid and family games stocked in the cupboard, a TV and DVD player that can be plugged in, available signal for WiFi, as well as a pull out couch for extra sleeping arrangements.
We are a 5 minute car ride from the grocery and local Johns Island restaurants, and Chilsolm Rd. to which we are adjacent, is a regular local bike riders route. Our land is truly unique, and has a truly great outdoor space for enjoying the gorgeous Charelston weather. Come and enjoy this Nature Lover's Paradise!
kayaking, woods, swimming, outdoor shower, great restaurants, - many people say it feels like a secluded mountain get away, but close to town and in the low-country :)
Interaction with Guests
we are here on the property too, but there's a whole 8.5 acres to enjoy, and the space feels very private, while also being part of a community.
Other Things to Note
we are looking to have the hot tub set up very very soon for the winter months :) yessss!!!
Polite. Respect all things and return them to their place. Leave all personal items be please. Deal with our dogs kindly and as explained. Thank you.
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time to the say the least... Willis has truly created a special spot on John's Island. If you are looking to relax for a few days and step away from the the Nature Lovers Loft is perfect for you.
The air conditioning was perfect and kept the loft nice and cool at night. We cooked one of the nights and enjoyed the music from her record collection (the kitchen has everything you would need). We enjoyed the lighting and the screen porch, the first night we drank beer and listened to the local symphony of frogs - so relaxing. The nights were so clear with almost zero light pollution from the city, you could see so many different constellations with ease. The outdoor shower was great and was very private for those who may be worried. It was about 20 minutes away from both downtown and Kiawah Beachwalkers Beach which was perfect since we wanted to be a little off the beaten path.
Willis is a wonderful and sweet host. When we saw her she always checked to see if we need anything. And when we managed to get a little burnt at the beach she pointed out where we could find some aloe within the loft. Huge help!
Charleston is a very beautiful place, and I feel like my girlfriend and I really lucked out stumbling on Willis' retreat on Airbnb. If you are looking to relax and forget about your worries look no further... You will find lots of TLC in every inch of her home.
It was a great place. Accurate description of lodging and environs.
It was truly a great deal and we came to love our little home away from home. It was in a great location and the place had everything you needed. Loved outdoor shower. The place is very neat and clean. It should be noted in terms of decor it is not a minimalist's dream. It is very cozy with lots of pictures to look at, books, etc. The 3 best aspects of this lovely cottage are the location, the natural environment and the peaceful, quiet surroundings.
Nothing but positive things to say. Willis has created a beautiful place which makes you feel happy and very much at peace. Everything in the house is so tastefully put together. The record player with a number of great records was a wonderful touch. Would highly recommend this place!
We had a great time staying here. The space was absolutely fantastic and as described. We would definitely stay here again!
What a magical and romantic place! We had such a wonderful vacation in the Charleston area and I think that Willis's loft might have been the best part! It rained a bit while we were here, so we spent a good amount of time just lounging around and listening to Willis's awesome records while reading our books on the screened-in porch. When I grow up, I want a house just like this! Thank you for sharing your lovely space with us, Willis!
Our experience at the Nature Lover's Loft was magical. Willis was a fantastic host who provided us with a clean and tidy living space. Unfortunately, we did not get a chance to meet Willis; however, she left us a warm welcome note and let us know we could contact her with any questions/concerns. The loft's location on Johns Island was perfect for exploring the local beaches (Kiawah, Folly, Sullivan's), downtown Charleston, and attractions like the Angel Oak Tree. We'd recommend this listing to anybody in a heartbeat.
