We live about 15 minutes from downtown Charleston, about 30 minutes from area beaches, and are close to many historical sites. We recently switched to only renting for 30 days or longer due to zoning regulations but are hopeful short-term rentals will be possible soon. PRICE IS NEGOTIABLE.
We are a happy, busy, loving family. The room we are currently renting is the smaller of the two we sometimes rent. The larger of the two rooms is currently being used as a home office, but is mentioned in some of our reviews. We are not a bed and breakfast inn; we are simply a family home that sometimes rents a room to guests. Our 25 year old daughter, a nurse, is living at home right now. Our other children are often here visiting, eating and spending time. Our parents and grandson are here for meals sometimes too. We love to include our guests in things we are doing, including meals, but we understand that they often have things planned and may be out a lot. We love meeting our guests and sharing ideas with them about things to see and do in Charleston. Meeting new people is our favorite part of doing airbnb!

We interact as much or as little with our guests as they like! We go on about our lives while they are there, and our guests often join us for meals, coffee, etc. Our grown children, our grandson and my parents are sometimes at our house for meals. If you enjoy meeting locals and experiencing life as they live it, I think you will feel very welcomed and included. We understand that sometimes guests prefer to spend time in their room relaxing and in quiet. It is always quiet at night; our guests have no trouble sleeping here!
The hall bath is shared by our guests and our 24 year old daughter who is a nurse and who lives at home. She is very conscious of respecting our guests' need for privacy and uses other restrooms in the house as well to give our guests access to the restroom when they need it. The same is true for our other children and their friends who may be visiting. The bathroom is kept very clean and tidy.
No pets and no smoking inside.
I am a wife, mom, twin, friend to many and a teacher. I have traveled extensively and love to entertain family and friends, new and old, in my home. I grew up in Chile, South America, and am fluent in Spanish. My husband Joe and I live in one of the most beautiful places you could ever visit, Charleston, SC. It is home to beaches, many great restaurants, historic sites, and the friendliest people you will ever meet! I am 53 years old, Joe and I have 5 grown children, and we have a large extended family that we spend lots of time with. I love to read, cook, travel, and I love the beach. My favorite travel destinations are Spain, Ireland, Alaska, and of course, Chile! As a host, I think you would find me to be relaxed, flexible and helpful. Having lived in Charleston for 34 years, I can give lots of good advice about things to see and do here. I have a couple of life mottoes: "you can't have too much fun", "where there's a will, there's a way", and "beauty fades, but dumb is forever" (I encourage my children and students to use their minds!) Hope to see you in Charleston!
