“Amazing home and views”

The only place to stay when visiting Charleston. Perfect location, great hosts, wonderful home, and waterfront views.

“Expectations Exceeded”

Hands down the nicest house on the block and extremely modernized inside from top to bottom. Great location and price. Getting downtown via Uber in 10 minutes for $10 can not be beat.

The Pool Trust House Reviews

We would recommend it to everyone. Laurie and George have equipped this home with everything you could possibly need... and the furnishings are high-end. The beds are plush and comfortable, with bath towels, beach towels, etc. It is close to all the restaurants at Shem Creek, Downtown and Isle of Palms. I cannot imagine anyone giving it less than 5 stars. It looks just like it is pictured on the website.

“Beautiful house, great location”

Everyone in our 3 generation family of 10 loved the house and grounds. The house was spotless and had everything we needed--plenty of space, a well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, and more. Laurie and George were nice to work with, and were kind enough to have coffee, creamer, orange juice and some treats for us when we arrived. We liked having them next door. The weather was too cold to use the kayaks but just right for building a fire in the fire pit and toasting marshmallows. The location is great, close to downtown Charleston but has the feel of being nowhere near a city. This is an ideal place for a vacation.

“Amazing property! Close to Downtown & Beach!!”

This is an amazing house! The house was very clean and spacious. We had a group of 10, 8 adults and 2 kids, with plenty of room. George and Laurie were great to rent from. The house is close to downtown and about 15 minutes from the beach. I would highly recommend this house and I would stay here again. The house was very well stocked and each couple had their own room and bathroom. The pool was amazing for the hot days. We enjoyed it more of the evenings when there was a little shade. They do spray the yard for bugs so we didn't have to worry about the mosquitoes!! Our first two days we weren't able to use the pool because of heavy rain and flooding but George worked diligently to get it in working order for us. While we were there we visited the Isle of Palms beach about 20 mins away, Sullivan's Island 15 mins away, Patriots Point and Fort Sumter 5 mins away, and the Aquarium about 10 mins away. We had a wonderful vacation

“The perfect place to chill!”

This is a beautiful home inside and out. The artwork in the home was awesome. Someone definitely has an attention to detail. The house was very clean and we'll stocked. There were more than enough towels, the beds were very comfortable and the owners left us some essentials in the kitchen to get us started, such as coffee and creamer. I have to say that our favorite spot in the home was the porch and backyard. Upon getting up each morning we would sit on the porch and drink our coffee and eat breakfast. This is definitely the CHILL part of the house that we loved the most. Watching the wildlife was an added bonus. One morning we just happened to look up and there was a family of three raccoons testing in the tree. Very harmless. We watched them and I am sure they were watching us. The guys enjoyed exploring the creek on the kayaks. There are just too many positive aspects to this home to mention them all. I would highly recommend this location as a peaceful and lovely place to stay while visiting the Charleston area.

“From the moment we opened the door it felt like home!”

Eight high school friends celebrating our 75th birthday year together—it was the perfect spot. Everyone had private space and the living areas accommodated our whole group very nicely. Very clean and well appointed. We had almost instant attention from the owner when requested. Our only regret is that the weather kept us from enjoying the very inviting back porch and pool area. Thanks George and Laurie for providing a place for our memorable birthday celebration
