I live alone in an apartment just outside of the city of Charleston in West Ashley. I really have the best of both worlds. I live just away from downtown Charleston, and very near the airport and shopping. At night I can go outside and look up to see the clear Carolina sky and the stars, or make the short ten minute drive downtown to have dinner and go out.
The area is actually incredibly close to all of the plantations along the Ashley River and is also near the original Charles Towne landing of 1670.
I have my own bedroom, living room, dining room, kitchen, washer/dryer, fireplace and porch. I also have access to a 24-hour gym, swimming pool, and hot-tub that are a few yards from my front door. Almost anything you need, I have and it is at your disposal.
My bed is a queen sized elevated and royal canopied bed. I have a a pull-out futon couch in the living room. If is so comfortable, that at least twice a week, I fall asleep on it watching TV at night. It sleeps two comfortably, but I also keep a single-size inflatable mattress and one sleeping bag on hand if you need them.
The place would be ideal for a couple, a couple of couples, or a small group of friends to stay.
I ask for honesty, cleanliness, and respect.
I do NOT smoke, and while many of my friends do, I cannot be around it because I am allergic to it.
Charleston is one of the oldest cities in America; a true colonial town. It is also one of the most charming cities in the WORLD. There is so much to see and do, you could NEVER be disappointed. If you stay, you will also never be disappointed.
Travis moved mountains to ensure that our stay in Charleston catered to our every need. He is a fantastic host with an unmatched level of hospitality. Truly one of the best on airbnb
I LOVED staying at this house! It's so cozy. It feels like a home. I spent most of my night on the little closed in back porch enjoying the nature, and the view of the pool. Which my son was definatly excited about. Also the beach isn't that far either. Finding places to eat, and things to see are pretty easy when your staying soo close to everything. Our host was amazing. Travis is a complete sweetheart and made sure the house was warm and welcoming. (Halloween decor and all) I'd say you should deff give it a try. Go learn his story and live as he lives.
My then girlfriend and I stayed at Best of Both Worlds in Charleston to celebrate our five year anniversary. I planned to propose to her while we were there. I let Travis in on the secret and he was so excited and offered his knowledge of the city to help make the night perfect! He literally made our reservation at Pan e Vino, a romantic italian restaurant, on King st. We had a table for two with extra candles, and the waiter brought us a bottle of red wine saying Travis had called in and bought it for us! We were both astounded and lost for words. Afterwards he also set up a bike taxi ride to White Point Gardens at the battery, the perfect romantic spot for me to seal the deal. Long story short, she said yes! We met up with Travis on our last day and bought him lunch, he's a very interesting person and the conversation went as if we all had been friends before we stayed at his place. He's definitely a southern gentleman and a gracious host. His apartment is ten minutes from downtown, and in a nice area. The furnishings are awesome, he has so many interesting pictures and decorations! I used the gym and pool facilities while there with no problems. I would recommend staying at Best of Both Worlds to anyone, any time. We will definitely be coming back to see the charming and impressive city of Charleston as well as Travis Lee Odell, our new friend!
I stayed at the best of both worlds in charleston with a group of friends for a weekend trip. Everything was really great: it wasn't too far away from the beach or from downtown which was nice for a group of us. The accommodations were also good, especially since we were able to use the kitchen so we didn't have to eat out all the time as well.
Travis responded quickly and made sure to be available for any questions. He was flexible with checkout times which is always a plus. The place was organized and very clean. Everything that was needed to make the stay comfortable was available even extra toiletries.
Travis' place is clean and easily accessible from interstate. It was very comfortable for our family of 3.
Travis was a very accommodating host. He responded quickly, and on short notice & was very courteous. The apartment was clean and the location was great. All amenities were provided & check in & out was clear & flexible. I would recommend this apartment as a great value when staying in charleston.
What a lovely treat to stay in Charleston for a spontaneous trip with my children. Travis's place was cute and cozy and he was ok with 5 of us staying in it. It was just what we needed and the pool with a hot tub was just perfect!!! We will be back!!
We stayed @ Travis home during the 4th of July weekend. The condo is conveniently located just outside of downtown Charleston, but only a few minutes away. We were able to find food & restaurants nearby that had good meals at a fair price. Travis was nice to provide information on were everything was.
A few weeks ago my Mother and I had the privilege of staying at Best of Both Worlds in Charleston. We were wanting to get away for a girls weekend and Travis was the perfect host. There was no one renting his place before we arrived or just after we left so Travis was very gracious to allow us to come in as early as we wanted on our arrival date and stay as long as we wished on our departure date. This made our time less rushed when coming and going which we much appreciated. When we arrived the apartment was clean and organized and things were just as Travis told us they would be. Everything was easy to get to and if we had forgotten anything Travis had that taken care of as well. We enjoyed our time out around the pool and in the hot tub as well as relaxing in the apartment which we did a lot of due to all the rain Charleston got during our stay. This was fine with us b/c Travis had an array of movies to choose from which kept us entertained when we were not out shopping. Our overall experience was fantastic and we will definitely consider staying at Travis' place upon future visits to the Charleston area. I highly recommend you stay at Best of Both Worlds in Charleston when planning your next visit there!
