Guest review: “This home was truly a gem and definitely gave us that charming feeling of us being in Charleston.

The added bonuses made our stay very pleasurable.

Hot tub was excellent, along with the fire pit and grill.

We didn’t spend the days in the house, but definitely enjoyed our evenings.

The home comes equipped with all needed essentials, bathrooms and kitchen completely stocked with everything needed.

I’m used to have to bring extra essentials just in case, but our expectations were exceeded and did not have to use our extras.

Heidi was very responsive in all communication and very quick too!!

This is what is needed when it comes to hosting and I loved it.

Thank you for accommodating all of our needs, including the toys for kids, extra beds, high chair, crib, extra linens, towels for bath and hot tub, lawn chairs, and many more.

I will recommend this place to anyone who asks.

Loved the convenience to downtown and other islands.

I would definitely stay here again.” – Taisiya, November 2020
