I have stayed here twice now and simply adore the owners and this property. Location is perfect, house is ideal with all of the comforts of home and easy access to Charleston as well as the beaches. George and Laurie think of every detail! I highly encourage you to take out the kayaks on the property. We were fortunate enough to have dolphins come right by our kayaks! The crab pots are there and the crabs are wonderful. I have stayed in Charleston many times and this truly is my favorite spot!

Loved the location, loved the house, loved the price. The Bixler's gave us wonderful recommendations for things to see and do-they also provided a bottle of white wine and a bottle of red wine to welcome us. The provided breakfast goodies as well. We will definitely be back next year!
