Interaction with Guests
We love to meet our guests but we try not to get in your way. As you let yourselves in and are self sufficient, some times we don't run into each other. It's a simple phone call if you have any needs or questions!
Close enough to all the action but far enough away to feel like home. Our reviews say it all!
From the airport, you can take a cab or there is a $2 city bus to the downtown visitor center that gets you a shorter cab ride to us.
Parking is off-street and just outside your door so your car will always be handy.
With our newly added Beach Cruisers, getting around town is even easier!
There is a fun little trolley in town that is or is nearly free although walking is always the best mode of transport in Charleston.
The pedi-cabs (human powered bicycle cabs) are abundant and always around when your feet finally give out!
Cabs are not a common site in the city but are available if you call. And now Uber is alive and well in Charleston.
Other Things to Note
Free WiFi (of course!)
Great coffee, a nice bottle of wine and a friendly atmosphere - AAAHHH!
Newly added bicycles for your use around town.
Respect the property and surrounding residents.
No smoking anywhere on the property.
Have a great stay!
Laurie and Rob's lovely casita in the historic part of Charleston was absolutely perfect for our first time using Airbnb. The location was perfect as we could walk everywhere. The accommodations were absolutely high quality and decorated in high taste. We were very impressed. The private entry, protected parking, little outdoor patio added to the ambiance. And the complimentary bottle of wine was wonderful. The bed was very comfortable and the towels quite fluffy. What more can one ask for. Oh yes, the freshly ground coffee was a nice touch and we did make use of the little refrigerator. Thank you so much for a perfect stay.
We had a great stay at Laurie and Rob' place. We were warmly welcomed and given some tips on must see's during our short stay in Charleston. Our room was perfect, comfy bed, nice sitting area inside and out. Wished we had more time to explore Charleston.
Our trip to Charleston was amazing and our stay at the Home Away from Home only enhanced our experience even more. Laurie welcomed us when we came in around 3:15 and assured us that when we needed anything, or had any questions/concerns she was only a text or phone call away. My boyfriend and I tend to be on the less-interactive side when we travel with airb&b and Laurie and Rob were able to provide us with that privacy we like. There was a chilled bottle of wine waiting for us along with cold, filtered water (which was refilled for us while we were out and about) as well as a coffee pot with all the fixins. The available mini-fridge and microwave was nice to have considering we had some great left-overs from all the fantastic restaurants Charleston has to offer. Also, this bed was quite possibly one of the most, if not the most, comfortable bed I have ever slept on! We also cruised around town a bit on the bikes Laurie and Rob had out on the driveway; a great way to see Charleston! The listing was described accurately and we will be looking Laurie and Rob up for future stays to Charleston!
We had a most enjoyable visit . The accommodations were even better than described . Felt like a really nice efficiency apartment. Beautiful decor, great amenities . We would highly recommend this place to everyone. Thanks Laurie, great time!
My husband and I visited Charleston for the first time and employed Airbnb for the first time this past weekend. We couldn't have been happier with our experience. Laurie and Rob are thoughtful hosts who manage their rental with professional, friendly courtesy. The bungalow is comfortable, clean and well appointed with tasteful decor and lush amenities. They have thought of everything and provide it for their guests with thoughtful attention to detail. Thank you so much for sharing your home - we will definitely be back!
Laurie was so kind and welcoming. The space is incredibly private and has everything you need. Their little patio garden is perfect for a lazy morning with your favorite book. It's about a 20 minute walk into town and was perfect for us. We felt safe, taken care of, and had the privacy of our own space. I would definitely recommend this space to anyone!
In a word..... Perfect. The room is private, large, and comfortable. It is an easy walk to downtown. Laurie and Rob are wonderful hosts! If I return to Charleston, I will certainly stay here.
