I'm a web designer/developer here in Columbia. My wife teaches Kindermusik classes and we have a wonderful little boy named Walt.
The Trotters were amazing hosts! Our flight ended up going awry and they were very considerate and helpful. They were even thoughtful enough to leave some veggies for a spinach wrap after I let them know my mom and I were both vegan. They were also very helpful and went out of their way to suggest local health food stores and restaurants that we could eat at. As vegans, we were truly grateful for their thoughtfulness!
The house was very clean and the neighborhood quiet and peaceful. We loved waking up and enjoying the mornings on the front porch which had two lovely rocking chairs. If there's any question in choosing this house to stay at, let me save you the time and let you know it's well worth it! You will get more than your money's worth and all while having a wonderful nights rest on the huge bed! Everything was very comfortable and the Trotters made sure to let you know to make yourself at home. Definitely a 5 star stay!
The Trotters were gracious hosts. They gladly rented out there entire house to us for 3 nights and they encouraged us to make ourselves at home. They even left coffee out for us. The house is adorable and and extremely comfortable, including the gigantic master bed. We would definitely recommend their 3 bedroom 2 bathroom house to anyone visiting Columbia, SC.
