The SpaceMy inviting, comfortable home is located in the historic and coveted Riverland Terrace subdivision on James Island, South Carolina. "The Terrace" is the oldest neighborhood on James Island and the entrance (Wappoo Drive) is encased in Live Oak trees, draped in Spanish Moss...a truly stunning and romantic scenic by-way as you travel to The Pink Palace.
Built in 1927, the home is filled with warmth and character, accented by period antiques and plush furnishings.
Your room features a beautiful antique mahogany pillow-top queen size bed, luxurious 1,200 thread-count linens, a 24" TV w/DVD player with Netflix access, his & hers robes, toiletries, iron & board & even a hairdryer for your convenience.
A 10-minute drive to downtown Charleston, 10 minutes to Folly Beach and very convenient to Kiawah Island, Riverland Terrace is one of the most sought-after locations in the area. Guest AccessGuests will have access to the gourmet kitchen with a coffee station and room in the refrigerator for anything you may need to store. A continental-style breakfast is set out for your convenience each morning. Please feel free to reheat your awesome leftovers, but no full-meal cooking in the kitchen, please.
Your stay includes the use of a Beach Kit (2 beach towels, a beach mat, sunscreen, bug spray & a small cooler).
Gourmet picnic lunches are available for an additional fee (costs vary, depending on your tastes!), with everything you need to have a romantic meal for two at one of our gorgeous local parks.
Arrangements can also be made for an in-house massage or private yoga lessons. Interaction with GuestsI travel often, but I am usually here to greet my guests when they arrive to make sure they are comfortable and well-informed about the many amenities found close by on James Island. I may be present during your stay, but if not, I am available if you need me. It is completely up to my guests as to our interaction...I won't be offended if you don't want to chat chat and certainly wilI be happy to discuss our local scene should you wish to. Also, I do have a keen sense of knowing when guests need their privacy. ;-) The NeighborhoodConvenient to EVERYTHING, Riverland Terrace is one of the most eclectic and beautiful neighborhoods in the Charleston area. Historic beauty, surrounded by water on two sides, fantastic architecture - and the grand oaks are truly stunning!
Within walking distance, the neighborhood boasts one of Charleston's most popular music venues, The Pour House, as well as The Terrace Theater, Charleston's only independent movie theater.
Fantastic food and drink are just a short walk away at Crust Woodfire Pizza, The Lot, How Art Thou Jazz Cafe & Wine Bar, Maybank Public House and Zia Taqueria.
On Sundays, (mid-March through mid-December), there is a fantastic Farmers Market behind The Pour House (across the street from previously mentioned restaurants) from 11 am - 3 pm, which features some of Charleston's favorite goods, produce & food trucks! Getting AroundCharleston Area Transit Authority (CARTA) has two stops just 2 blocks from my home. Their routes and schedules can be found online - my neighborhood is on Route 31. If you plan to get around town via public transportation, please check the bus schedule BEFORE you book. Otherwise, Uber or taxis are quite affordable ($8-$12 to downtown during non-event dates) ways to get where you want to go. Other Things to NoteAllergy sufferers, UNITE!! My home is very clean and well kept. I use only hypo-allergenic detergents and organic fabric softeners to clean sheets, towels, etc. I do not have pets and have a strict no pets rule. An HEPA air filter can be provided in your room, upon request, for no extra fee.
This home is very liberal & LBGT friendly! No judgement here! I embrace every lifestyle imaginable! Feel free to be yourself at The Pink Palace.
