Owner Story

I am an avid traveler, who loves to experience new people and places. I design and create landscapes as well as lecture on things horticultural and historic. When not traveling, I spend most of my time on my Ohio farm with my wonderful husband and a plethora of dogs and chickens. I spend the rest of my time in Charleston, South Carolina soaking up the sun, culture, and history. In addition to traveling, I love reading, cooking, swimming, and gardening.

Highly recommend this stay for anyone looking to be near king street and some great restaurants and shops. We were able to walk to anything we wanted to do all weekend. The tub was amazing! We stayed on a busy weekend and noticed noise outside from the bar crowd and fire trucks, but with the sound machine and blackout curtains everyone slept just great! Comfy beds and clean beautiful decor. Kitchen had everything we needed and more! Lovely home! Great for couples or a group of friends with the separate en suite bathrooms.

The home is great and decorated for the period it was built . Quite old . Hence why we rented it . The Location is close to it all . Holy Bagels is 50’ away and a must for Bagel lovers. Get there early!! Be sure to verify with Stay Duvet if you were approved early check in as we had one of there employees enter the home unannounced apparently to do a pre check in visit . It was quite scary as there are some homeless in the area and had no idea who was entering again no knock no announcement .. just walked in . I’m just glad I was there for my wife as she was napping upstairs . I almost went to the store for some grocery’s. Thank you Jesus I stayed in the house while she napped . The worst part after reporting the incident I was told we were not supposed to be there and wanted US to leave and find another place to stay after I had confronted the man entering the home unannounced I thought he was a vagrant .. my wife’s safety was my concern . I was told could stay however they would not provide any service if issues where to arise . Then changed our electronic door code so we could not lock the home from the outside . We made it work as we loved the home . This was all due to the communication between AirBandB and Stay Duvet. I still have the proof of our early check in approval as I provided as well to Stay Duvey who denies it . There response was they did not approve it even though my reservation was with Air B&B not them . Other than that this is a beautiful place if you like antique furnishings. Very period of the time built .
