About the Owner

We have taken early retirement to enjoy life and travel. Our guest house is a source of pride for us and we work very hard to be good hosts to all our guests. We believe that if you own a property you rent you must be able to stay there as if you lived there full time; otherwise, you should not rent.

must see! best stay ever!

  • 5 of 5
we truly enjoyed our stay here the owners are fantastically nice, and are welcoming to meet any need you may have. They are so friendly and willing to help and point you in the right direction. the owners also leave you alone you truly do have your own privacy and ability to fill like you have your own place. You come and Asians are fantastic. The outdoor area is one of a kind the pool is salt water and it is amazing. The outside sitting area grill and cooking area is beautiful and easy to use. The inside of the guest house is amazingly quiet, comfortable, and accommodating. The bathroom is spacious and comfortable in the shower is easy to use and large. the kitchen is plenty adequate with all of the stocked supplies you may need to cook a dinner or grab a quick snack before you go see Charleston. House is in a great location quick to get back to town or one of the remote beaches. We drove everyday to Kiawah Island and or Folly Beach. They were both within driving distance. We enjoyed the trip to Savannah and then spent the rest of the week in Charleston. If you are a couple looking to get a way to Charleston and don't want to pay the outrageous prices in town you will enjoy staying close to West Ashley in this beautiful guest home you will not be sorry. I can tell you for sure the Skeens family will be going back thank you for your great hospitality.

Wonderful stay in Charleston

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I took a winter getaway and stayed in this charming house. The location was close to everything we wanted to see and do and yet was just far enough away from town to have some quiet and relaxation. Martha was extremely helpful with tips and suggestions for visiting Charleston. The house had everything we needed (and more) and was very clean and comfortable. If we ever get the opportunity to visit Charleston again, we would definitely rent the house again. Our only regret was that the cool temperatures prevented us from taking advantage of the outdoor amenities like the pool and outdoor grill.

Best vacation stay ever!

  • 5 of 5
This was the best vacation rental experience we have had. Our hosts were very thoughtful, gave us our privacy, yet were always available for conversation as well as dining and entertainment suggestions. The accomodations were exactly as listed - beautiful, well maintained. It was especially nice to have a swimming pool.

Thank you both so much. We look forward to returning in the future...or maybe try your other rental in Tennessee!

Welcoming, comfortable and a great location!

  • 5 of 5
You'll feel right at home here. Martha has thought of everything to make your stay memorable--from the memory form mattress to a kitchen stocked with all your cooking needs. Just 10 minutes from historical Charleston and not much further to Magnolia Plantation, its a great location. Very private and quiet with a lovely, cared for lot, we would certainly hope to stay there again if in the area.

If you're looking for the perfect vacation getaway, just ten minutes from the heart of beautiful Charleston - you've found it.
We've been staying in self-catering rentals for nearly twenty years and this is one of the best ever. The location is excellent - quiet and peaceful, with the city just a short drive away. Restaurants, shops, the historic centre, the coast are all within a very short drive, as are the many plantation houses and glorious beaches. The house itself is faultless. Everything is provided and all to a very high standard. We intended to try many of Charleston's famous restaurants - forget it, we stayed in and cooked and just crashed out in this wonderful place! The owners, Martha and Peyton, are there when you need/want them. They have a textbook knowledge of their area and seem to know everything and everyone in Charleston! If I had to find one problem with this place it was that we had to leave it after just one week! I'd get on a plane and go back now if I could. As I said, stop looking, you've found the best place to stay.

Amazing Guest House

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect location to enjoy both the beaches and downtown Charleston. The guest house is fantastic - cute, comfortable, and quiet. The pool is gorgeous - clean, refreshing, and private. We enjoyed the outdoor kitchen where we grilled our own dinner and found plenty of ice. The owners are friendly and helpful. We will definitely return when we visit Charleston again.

From the Owner

We originally built this for a combination pool house and guest house with lanai for entertaining our friends and guests. We have decided to share with others because it is our own little resort. We have had so much fun meeting people from all over the world.

8 miles to downtown - 15-20 minutes drive time. 15-20 minutes from the airport, outlet shopping, plantations and the beaches. Close to everything without the hassle of everyone. Our neighborhood is very quiet and highly respected area with large Southern Live Oak trees. We have 4 extraordinary specimens on our property.
