Folly Beach is 15 min. away and has awesome beaches, restaurants, bars, kayak trips, stand up paddling, surfing, dolphin watching, fishing pier, more. Also nearby are Magnolia and Middleton Plantations-take a half day to enjoy each. Your hostess was born in Charleston so has lots of recommendations and help. Bus service is available, but not so convenient. There is a play park close by and boat landing two blocks away. Hope to see you soon! NO smoking on property, please. Please ck. out my reviews on my other room rentals! No perfumes or scented products especially hairspray in home due to asthma/allergies. A rental car is nice but Uber is super convenient. Guest AccessYou have access to living/dining rooms, kitchen and breakfast foods, cereal, muffins, fruit, tea/coffee. The deck is a great place to sit with a glass of wine or morning Joe... Hi speed wifi, cable tv in room, central hvac. Bikes on porch to use. Book of Crystal's Favorite things to see and do in Charleston. Brochures/maps/coupons/etc. Feel free to use the washer and dryer. Back yard is fully fenced if you bring your dog.. Interaction with GuestsI love to hang out with my guests when I am in town if they feel like it. I travel often and my brother is available to assist in anyway as though I am there. We have a small dog, Ivy Rose. We are a phone call away if not at home if you need anything at all. The NeighborhoodThis is the oldest, prettiest (in my opinion) neighborhood on James Island. There are ancient oaks lining every street. Its surrounded on 3 sides by salt marsh, creeks, river and Intercoastal Waterway which we see from the deck. I'm two blocks from restaurants/theater/bars/music venue/boat landing/park. We have Sun. afternoon farmers market in neighborhood (not during winter). Friendly, safe, quiet. AND ONLY 10 to 12 MIN. To DOWNTOWN!! And 15 min. to the beach unless its a weekend morning, can take longer. Getting AroundGreat neighborhood for walking for fun or exercise or to shops, restaurants, music venues. There is bus service to downtown. Or Uber is very reasonable. Or taxis. Most guests rent a car. It is not possible to walk to the historic district due to bridges over water. I provide airport transportation with notice for $35 each way and downtown for $15. I am not always available for that. Bikes in the garage for your convenience. Other Things to NotePLEASE CALL AN HOUR OR TWO BEFORE ARRIVING! Looking forward to having you! Plenty of parking, but don't block anyone in. No small children 2 and under please. Be sure to look at the height of the queen bed as it does require 4 or 5 steps and some folks have trouble accessing if they have physical challenges.
