About this listing

Our home is located 15-20 minutes away from downtown Charleston on 1.5 acres of beautiful land. We are on a tidal creek that has access by boat to the Charleston harbor. This is the perfect retreat for folks wanting a peaceful getaway.

The space

You will have your own bedroom/bathroom with fresh sheets, towels, shampoo/conditioner and Keurig coffee maker. There is an office across the hall from the guest bedroom with a futon for extra guests if you have more people with you. If you love to fish, or just enjoy the outdoors, our home is perfect for you! Our living room has a cozy fireplace that we love to use for chilly nights.

Guest access

You have access to the living room, kitchen, laundry room, office and all of the outdoor space. We have beach towels for you to use if you'd like to explore the different beaches around the area.

Interaction with guests

I am more than happy to recommend great places to visit and dine around the Charleston area. My husband runs a boat charter business and loves to take folks on the water for private fishing and birding tours-or just to see the beautiful Charlestons sights from the water!

Getting around

We do live in the country so you will need a vehicle to get around. The roads near our home are not safe for biking. A car is the quickest and safest way to access our home and travel around the Charleston area.

Other things to note

If you have kayaks, bring them! Our creek is a great place to kayak/paddle board and it takes about .6 miles to get to the Stono river for incredible views of the space.

House Rules

We allow pets in our home. We have a miniature poodle that has boundless energy. She's incredibly sweet and loving.

We stayed with Federica and Gates for 4 nights and loved their house. They are great hosts and very welcoming. They helped us with many restaurant suggestions and even organized a kayak tour for us. The house is just as beautiful as on the pictures. John's island is very relaxing with great nature and still only 15 mins from downtown Charleston. Charleston is definitely worth a visit and there is so much to do. We will come back for sure and would love to stay with Federica and Gates again. Thanks for the wonderful time!

My fiance and I loved our experience on tidal creek. Our hosts could not have been more kind and welcoming. My fiance and I had our own private wing in a adorable, very clean bedroom. It was so quite, relaxing and truly a unique, affordable spot to stay. We were located only 20 minutes from the wedding that we were attending in Seabrook Island and very close to Charleston which is exactly what we wanted so it would be easy to experience both during our stay. We would definitely stay here again!

Our stay with Federica and Gates at their waterfront home was spectacular! Their place was so lovely, close to everything, and we couldn't possibly have felt more welcome. Such a warm and adorable couple! Having the private wing of the house was such a treat. We took full advantage of the tips they gave us for exploring the area and of their dock down on the water. We were upset to leave when we did and will absolutely stay with them next time we visit the low country. And hopefully we will plan to take a fishing tour with Capitan Gates next time too!

Federica was great! The house was very cozy and clean. Federica left a list of great places to see/place to eat in Charleston that was very helpful. I would 100% stay with them again. They also had an awesome little pup:)

The most peaceful getaway! Fed and Gates have the perfect home in such a great location, just a short drive from downtown Charleston and Folly Beach. Fed was so accommodating from before we arrived until after we left, providing us with a list of things to do and places to eat, to answering any and all questions about our stay. We will surely be back!
