Owner Story

I love traveling, my family, my dog, green tea, coffee, sushi, making music, nutrition, reading, meeting new people, and living life to the fullest. I work for Yelp and put on public events in Charleston. I've lived in Atlanta, GA; Los Angeles, CA; Jupiter, FL; Chattanooga, TN; New Haven, CT; Athens, GA; and now I live in Charleston, SC and NEVER want to leave. I live by the motto "Leave nothing behind but good will". I'm a big believer in karma and care about quality control in what I do. I hope to not only be a good host, but your friend and guide (if needed) during your stay here in the best city in America :) I want you to also see whats good in the locals eyes and not just what is marketed to the tourists.

The team at the bee and blossom were fantastic! Communication was easy, the Airbnb was adorable and more than we could have asked for. The location of the Airbnb was perfect, a nice walk to king street or a quick Uber ride! Thank you to Taylor and the team for allowing us to make fabulous memories!

Didn’t have the best experience at this house considering we spent almost $8500 for 3 nights. It started with asking if an earlier check in was possible. I was told no bc the cleaning crew would be there. We showed up to the house early anyway to at least drop off our bags - and low and behold - the house is empty and ready, at least an hour early. If I was staying at a hotel and a room was ready early, they would accommodate me. It’s upsetting to me they were not willing to accommodate an earlier time IF the house is ready. The house was clean but it is also an older house. There is no dining table or great place for a large group to eat. Considering the house accommodates 16 guests - it would be nice to have somewhere to eat together. There is a table outside on the upstairs porch but it’s very hot outside and not really a good option to be going up and down stairs with food. There were a ton of LARGE horseflies or something equivalent AT ALL TIMES. I would say we killed over 20 and we never seemed to be able to get rid of them. They were always around no matter how many we killed. I don’t know where they came from because we were not leaving doors open at all. The beds are comfortable and nice linens. However, each room has a different airflow. Some rooms cannot get cooled down at all and some were very cold. Ceiling fans would help the warmer rooms but I only saw a fan in 1 room. Box fans were provided which weren’t sufficient in cooling the warmer rooms. Also, such a simple thing - they only provided 3-4 hangers per room. How strange? A pack of hangers only cost a few dollars. When paying that much money it would seem obvious to provide an adequate amount of hangers to each room. What really upset us though was the first night we were woken up at 2:30 in the morning by BLARING alarms in every.single.room going off loud and an automated voice saying “there is smoke in a guest bedroom.” Over and over and over and over. Loud. As loud as any alarm I have ever heard indoors. This obviously woke us all up and was very scary. Once we realized there was no smoke and nothing wrong, we realized there was no way of stopping the alarm. I called the emergency number provided by the host several times, texted the number and included a video of the alarms going off, and then called Duvet corporate reservation (??) number listed online. I got no answer. All 8 of us women were outside of the home because of the sheer loudness of the alarm, in our pajamas, panicking because we did not know what our next step should be. As I was about to call a non emergency police or fire department number - the alarm just suddenly turned off and it was done. This was a 20 minute ordeal that had us running from room to room and standing outside in pajamas at 2:30 am (which also didn’t feel particularly safe for a group of women). We were scared to even go back to bed at that point bc we didn’t know if it would keep going on and off all night considering we didn’t know what set it off in the first place. What was the most upsetting was that I did not hear from Duvet at all until 11:30 the next day. This is after I also sent them a message through Airbnb. They contacted me ONLY because I had called the reservation line and wanted to see if I was interested in a reservation. I finally got to tell someone my whole story. They said they would go to the house and check on things. I asked them to please call me back because we needed to know if anything had been fixed. Again, we were scared of this happening again. I never heard from them again. No one called with an update or offered even the slightest discount for such a troublesome and scary experience. We did come home to a gift basket that contained…. Bottles of water, Plastic cups, taffy, a lollipop (just one lol), and small bag of cookies. Wow. Overall, the house is pretty, I appreciated the comfortable beds, it’s in a great location, but when you are paying $8500 for 3 nights, the expectations are a little higher and an ordeal like we went through should have been handled much much differently.
