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.

Great spot! Nice and clean with a convenient location!


August 2022

Sydney and the concierge team were superb and prompt in resolving issues and answering our requests/questions. The location is very convenient, within walking distance to all places that we wanted to visit: the King st. and the Rainbow Row. The apt was colorfully decorated as named. It is very quiet at night even with proximity to the Charleston college. Even though parking is not on site, it is, however, right around the corner. Our request of extending the checkout time by 1 hour was promptly approved. The only issue that we encountered was the drain bugs since there was a heavy rain on our arrival date but Sydney promptly sent someone to take care of it (there were still some bugs flying around).

Great spot, great host

Great vibe in a cozy space. Small grocery on the corner. Walking distance to a gazillion restaurant options. If you like a decent stroll you can easily make it to the beautiful waterfront. Excellent communication.
