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.

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.

A Great Stay!!

  • 5 of 5
Very nice stay. The accommodations were accurate and perhaps nicer than what was described. Pool and Outside bar and cooking areas were very, very nice. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. It was located near everything and about 10 minutes from tourist locations in downtown Charleston. We would absolutely recommend staying here.

Charleston Guest House was Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
The property and the owners couldn't have been any better. Every detail in the guest house was thought of. There wasn't a single thing we needed. The decor was perfect. The amenities were perfect. The pool was amazing. The owners provided us with maps, coupons, and suggestions on where to go. Because they were on property, they were available to suggest ideas too. We would definitely stay here again. We would recommend it highly to anyone!

A truly special place

  • 5 of 5
Wow! We have stayed at some very posh and very unique places all over the world -- including a fantastic VRBO rental with a private pool on Isle of Palms last time we were in Charleston -- and I can honestly say that this place is as special as anywhere we have ever been.

The oasis of comfort and tranquility Martha and Peyton have managed to create with the pool, outdoor kitchen, and guest house they personally designed is really inspiring. In my mind, it's a perfect blend of Asian minimalism, Italian grandeur, and Charleston charm.

The guest house has everything you could possibly need for an extended stay, the outdoor kitchen/patio area is a wonderful place to spend time out of doors, and the pool is immaculate. And when you consider you can stay here for a fraction of what it would cost you to stay in a cramped hotel room downtown yet you're only a few minutes by car from everything, it's a real no-brainer.

The house is very close to a well-stocked Harris Teeter as well as some great bars, restaurants, and wine bars (Pearlz Oysters, The Glass Onion, FIery Ron's Hometeam BBQ, etc.)

Martha and Peyton are also very gracious and friendly hosts. They were always around and happy to help us whenever we needed something, yet left us to enjoy ourselves in complete privacy when we didn't.

Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. We will certainly be back. Already looking forward to it!

Beautiful property and ideal location

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our time here. We are a married couple in our thirties from the midwest. The property is very nice and well maintained. The outdoor patio and pool is a great feature with making our trip very relaxing. The location is central to many Charleston tourist things and the neighborhood here is quiet and peaceful. You are very close to grocery stores, the airport, many restaurants, Folly Beach, and downtown Charleston is an easy drive--10-15 minutes.
Breakfast at the Early Bird is a must. The dinner we enjoyed at the Glass Onion was excellent. The carriage ride of downtown and trip to Fort Sumter were both worth it. This is our third rental using in various cities and we rate this place as 5 stars for both the location, quality customer service and lovely accommodations.

Beautiful place w/ above-expectation accomodations

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I decided to celebrate our 2nd anniversary in Charleston and we came across this little gem for room and boarding.

Folks, the pictures on the website do not do this place justice. The description does not do this place justice. The owners of this guest house have brought a whole new definition to the word "accommodations." They've remodeled the place so that there is direct access from the pool to the bathroom. They've got a lamp that stays on 24/7 right by the grill area so that you can see your way inside after a late night.

The closets are stuffed with sunscreen, wipes, etc. They've got every cooking utensil that you can think of. They provide you with 7 different spatulas! You've got access to cupboards after cupboards of marinating spices and grill rubs.

The outdoor fridge is packed with wine and beer and the outdoor cabinets and filled with margarita cups and soda can sleeves. Oh, they even have a box full of water guns!

As if all this isn't good enough, the place is just decorated so beautifully, from the blue vases to the artistically placed tiles to the shelf full of handsome odds and ends that sit in the living room.

As a bonus, their bed is a Tempur-Pedic!

Honestly, I can't think of how else they can further improve the place. I think they've gone well beyond what other vacation room and boardings provide.

In a phrase: A+!

Owner's Response: Joseph,
Thank you so very much for the wonderful review. Unfortunately, the outside fridge filled with beverages is the owners fridge. Guests must bring their own. Otherwise, the remainder is accurate :)

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.
