Sophie Leigh-Jones

Welcoming a new property to our portfolio is an exciting part of our job, particularly when we have been heavily involved in its progress. This project was another one that offered us the chance to work in conjunction with the team at Luxury Simplified Construction. Located at 1 Todd Street, this home had been a dilapidated building for many years, having experienced a fire back in the 1990’s with the piazza finally collapsing in to the street in 2015.

Charleston SC: Why Staying in a Vacation Home is Better than a Hotel
Alex Cohn

Think about what characteristics of your home make you feel just that - at home! Being in a house adds a sense of natural comfort. Homey, if you will. It is your own space for just you and your family. You have bedrooms to relax and unwind, a kitchen to prepare meals and congregate with friends and family, you have outdoor space to enjoy Charleston’s weather and the surrounding vistas whether that means a trendy downtown loft or beachfront with sunrise views. Having these different spaces to create memories with your loved ones or create a relaxing retreat for yourself and enhances your memories and experience.

Luke Fuller

Did you know that VRBO and HomeAway just started charging a hefty service fee just for booking through their site? We think this is outrageous considering it adds up to 9% onto your total rental fee.
