The Space

Our home is a Charleston Duplex with a Certificate of Occupancy located in one of the best neighborhoods in Charleston (Please check our Walker's Score of 92 in our pictures). William and I offer the top floor to our guest which is completely separate from the downstairs unit, so you will need to use the exterior metal staircase in the driveway to access your unit (please be careful while on the stairs and on the porch! Do not lean on the railings!). We live in the bottom unit and have two dogs, Folly the Corgi and Rex the Cavichon, which you will see now and again. Please shut gates and doors to the property when you enter and leave so that the dogs will not escape because they WILL try. Also please be respectful of our home, we want everyone to enjoy their stay but please be mindful of our neighbors and us below. This is our personal property and we have decorated it with personal belongings and pieces that we have collected throughout our travels around the world. This neighborhood includes people of all ages and walks of life, so please be respectful with noise levels when on the porch and act in accordance with city noise ordinances. Lastly please enjoy the property, our main goal is for all our guests to enjoy and explore this beautiful city!

Owner Story

Things to know about us. Will and I were both born and raised in Charleston, SC. Will graduated from VMI and I graduated from SMU. More importantly, we love to surf and travel. After graduating college we moved to Australia and worked for a year. During that year we surfed a lot, converted our VW into a camper van and traveled Australia. Upon expiration of our visas we sold our van and used the money to travel through Indonesia where we surfed some of the best waves we’ve ever experienced. These travel experiences are what inspired us to also own an Airbnb and help people to enjoy their stays to the fullest potential. We formed some of the best relationships staying in Airbnb’s and meeting people from all over the world. We now live full time in Charleston and get away when possible. We primarily work in real estate, so if you have any questions or interests in the area we can offer our help.

January 2022

Sydney’s place was clean and well styled! Loved the plants throughout the apartment! The location is a good, as it’s a quick walk from some great shops and restaurants. I would say, maybe not the best spot for a group of just girls, as the first 5 minutes of the walk from the apartment to get to the shops is a little sketchy at night. Every night we passed quite a few drifters wandering through the neighborhood. I personally wouldn’t have felt safe to walk it by myself, but weren’t bothered when walking with our husbands or during the day, so it was okay. Overall we had a great stay and I would recommend Sydney’s place to other travelers. If you stay there be sure to make dinner reservations at chez nous nearby for some incredible food and wine!


December 2021

Amazing space with easy/walkable access to King and Queen Street! Sydney was communicative and made us feel very welcomed during our first trip to Charleston.
