vacation rental description

FABULOUS UPSCALE WATERFRONT

Clean and Stylish

****** WE HAVE A 2ND RENTAL PROPERTY IN THE SAME NEIGHBORHOOD...just 4 blocks away. The other house rental has a private POOL! See HomeAway for Listing # 3727532 ***

....And now....presenting The Big Chill...on the Waterfront ~

This fabulous property is unique in the Charleston area. It is rare to find a large rental this close to Historic Downtown, and to the beaches, surrounded by water and with total Water Views plus a dock! This Southern Style house is situated on more than a half acre of a private wooded peninsula which is a virtual 'nature preserve'. You experience marshland, tidal creeks, and deep water, and a dock on property, all a hop from downtown. With grand oaks, rivers and marshes viewed from the porches, decks and windows, you will think you stepped into the historic Charleston past, but with every luxury and amenity of the present.

The Big Chill House is just moments by car to the Historic District and the Visitor Center in Downtown Charleston, and the beaches of the islands. Location, location, location!

The house is a Traditional floor plan updated for modern life and vacationing pleasure. You will be overjoyed by the fabulous open, fully equipped, gourmet kitchen. Pots hang overhead from a wrought iron rack. With a center island, the kitchen is a natural gathering place. You will be thrilled with the numerous gourmet features. The stovetop is gas with 5 burners. Appliances are all top-of-the-line. This chef’s state of the art equipped kitchen has it all……..granite countertops, deep double sinks, hot and cold filtered water, trash compactor and oven warmer.

Connected to the kitchen is an open dining room, so you are never closed off from the action. The stunning dining room is customized with faux painting and enough seating for everyone.

Adjacent to the kitchen is den #2. This is a perfect spot to view the outdoors through the picture bay window, and to sit and read or have a morning coffee. Hardwood floors and oriental rugs add to the ambience. This den has a sofa bed as the couch.

Step through swing doors into the huge luxurious family room. This spacious great room has 2 stunning leather couches and a large 55' HDTV. Fans turn overhead for summer guests; a large working fireplace warms winter guests. This room runs the entire length of the house from the front to the back.

Exterior French doors open out to wrap-around Southern porches that encircle the whole house. Outdoor ceiling fans keep you cool and keep the bugs away. There are sets of seating all around the porches…wicker chair groupings, rocking chairs for viewing, and a joggling board. There is an outside table for eating, and a gas grill.

And although the central gathering spots of this house are fabulous, it just keeps getting better! The bedrooms are perfect sleep and retreat rooms. Unlike typical rentals, this attention to detail for the luxury and comfort of these bedrooms is what really cements this property as a true top quality rental. This house is made for gathering together……and also for comfortably escaping to a nice bedroom with comfy bedding and luxury linens...away from the crowds!

The spacious and romantic huge Master Suite has a deep thick Luxury King Bed, and French doors open to it's own private outdoor deck, with breathtaking views and seating. This Master Suite has an attached private bathroom. The suite is large enough to also have a sitting area and two closets for “his and hers”.

Overlooking the front, is a lovely upstairs queen bedroom; delightfully decorated.

The bedroom next door has mahogany twin beds that can be strapped together if desired. These 2 rooms share a designer luxury full bathroom with a rain shower and pedestal tub in marble, granite and stone.

The downstairs bedroom, a converted cozy room off the kitchen, has a dramatic Queen Bed, large ceiling fan, and a great attached bathroom with a walk in granite shower. The washer and dryer are in a closet in this bedroom also.

Also downstairs is a picture perfect powder room in the main hallway.

To top it all off….the grounds of the house make this the perfect vacation location. Kayaks are on site. Crab, fish, and swim off the backyard dock. Swing in the hammock, or under a tree. Luxuriate in the hot tub on the back deck. Yes! …..you have found paradise.

Awesome, Peaceful, Perfect

Review submitted: July 16, 2012   Date of arrival: July 6, 2012

This by far was the best stay I have every experienced. The house was awesome and just beautiful and peaceful grounds. Laurie and George are great people and made us feel as though we were at our own home. Will be staying again when back in Charleston.

Awesome week! House was very clean, well appointed, exactly as described. Appreciated the notebook w owners' favorite places w notes. Great location - easy/quick to get to beaches, airport, downtown Charleston. Loved the kayaks and birdwatching. Porch swing was my personal favorite spot!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: Girls groups and reunions really seem to enjoy this house. The porch and the views are great sharing time. Thanks for taking time to submit a review and for choosing this house.

Ahhhh, relax and chill

Review submitted: June 6, 2014   Date of arrival: May 28, 2014

We had a wonderful time. Everyone who came to the house fell in love with it. The paddle boards, kayaks and wrap around porch were our favorite things. A week later and we're still talking about how wonderful the house was. Highly recommend staying at Big Chill!

Owners response: Everyone really enjoys the Kayaks...having them right in the backyard to launch and paddle our creeks and rivers is really fun. Lately, our guests are loving the new trend of the Stand Up Paddleboards and now we have 2 for use. Thank you for taking time to submit a review...we appreciate it...and we are sooooo happy that a week later you are still enjoying your memories. We want to exceed expectations, and feel so good to get a review like this. You were great visitors. Thank you again.
