About Todd M.

My name is Todd and I was born and raised in SC. I went to the College of Charleston where I fell in love with Folly Beach. I became a Realtor and when I found this property I knew it was the perfect fit. I've done a lot to make it everything it can be, but am always looking to improve and ask each guest for their comments and suggestions. Offering the best experience for each guest is my number one concern,

Todd M. purchased this apartment in 2005

Relaxing by the river

  • 5 of 5

Herons, egrets, ibis, ducks, geese, gulls, and many more birds and wildlife are right outside the windows of this beautiful apartment on the river and marsh. It’s paradise for nature lovers.

This clean, ground floor apartment (no steps!) has all the amenities, from a well-stocked kitchen with stainless appliances to a comfortable king-sized bed and big closet in the bedroom. The living room and dining room are a good-sized area surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows that give you a 180-degree view of the surrounding tidal marsh and river. From the dining room table, it is only about 12 feet out the patio doors and onto the short walkway to the dock for birdwatching, kayaking, canoeing, crabbing, or sunbathing. Our fun times spent here at Todd’s place are what keep us returning year after year. Todd has always been very easy to work with if any small problems arise, and every year he makes improvements and updates to his house so that it is even more comfortable and enjoyable for his guests.

There’s so much to do in the Charleston and Folly Beach area that this house location is perfect for all activities in any direction. One minute to the grocery store or gas station. Five minutes to Folly Beach where the beaches at the county park and pier are free with the Gold Pass that Todd provides for guests. Ten minutes to James Island for shopping, a movie, or James Island County Park, also free with the Gold Pass. Fifteen minutes to downtown Charleston with all its famous history, shopping and restaurants. See the aquarium, Charleston City Market, and the grand old houses along Battery Park. This is an amazing area to visit. Returning to Todd’s pleasant, quiet, and relaxing house after a busy day of sight-seeing is simply the best! Thanks so much for providing such a wonderful place!

Poor Plumbing, Slow to React Landlord but a Beautiful Spot

  • 1 of 5

To Start the location is beautiful, it on the marsh and there is bountiful wildlife. Unfortunately while we staying there over Thanksgiving week we encountered major sewage/plumbing issues. It is a bottom apartment that shares a plumbing system with the apartment above it. First thing Wednesday morning we realized that the toilet was backing up into the tub and this was compounded every time the people renting the upstairs apartment put anything down the drains. I immediately called Todd and left a voice mail, I had not heard from him in an hour so called again, still no response. He finally texted me 3 hours after my initial phone call with promises of an immediate response by his staff. I repeatedly made it clear the it was systemic issue that both apartment were adding to. The maintenance man did not show up until that evening, we were out at the time, not sure what he did but it didn't work because when we returned the tub was 1/4 to 1/3 full of sewage water. I immediately took a photo and texted it to him, he responded that he would have someone out first thing. He never informed the upstairs tenants so the next morning water was flooding out of the toilet and under the laminate floor in the entry way, it was coming up through the floor seams. Needless to say this was disgusting. I went upstairs and had to ask the tenants there to stop using the water, inconveniencing them. I once again texted Todd (this seems to be the only way he communicates) and he said Roto Rooter would be contacting me, and that they would clean the mess. Roto Rooter came around 9:30 AM and determined it was a root in the main sewage line but he said they do not clean or sanitize they are just plumbers. I passed this on to Todd around 10:30 AM and he said he would get on it. Meanwhile we had asked to be put up somewhere else until this was taken care of and got no response to that, just more insurances that he was on it. The maintenance man did not show up until 6:30 PM and he cleaned all easily accessible surfaces, but the floor is permeated with sewage and not remedied. We were very patient with Todd during this whole ordeal and after negotiations, he finally promised us a refund for the 2 full days that were unable to use the facilities there. We have been home for over two weeks and he has only refunded the cleaning fee. Every time I email him about this he responds, that he is on it and then we hear nothing from him until I email him again.

Owner's Response: We appreciate all guest feedback and take it extremely seriously. Over the past 10 years that we have been renting our home we have made every effort to ensure the guest experience is as perfect as it can be for each guest. This is also our family home which we take great pride in. This year alone we have put a tremendous amount of time and money into the property sparing no cost so that it can be enjoyed to the absolute fullest. Unfortunately on rare occasions an issue may arise that could inconvenience a guest. When this happens we make sure the issue is resolved immediately. In this case the issue was resolved as quickly as humanly possible. However when a guest threatens a negative review if they are not reimbursed our hands are tied per Homeaway and VRBOs terms and conditions as extortion is not allowed or tolerated. We have a long history of only positive reviews and extremely satisfied guests. We will continue to believe in the good of our guests to do the right thing and conduct themselves accordingly without threat of malicious behavior.

Relaxing home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here and found the apt to have everything we needed. The view of the marsh was beautiful and spacious lending to a feeling of calm and relaxation. The bed was very comfortable. The location was perfect and only 10 minutes to downtown Charleston. Folly beach area was beautiful as well. I would definitely recommend this property and would return there if heading to Charleston again. Carolyn K

Great place with easy access to a lot of sight-seeing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had never been to Charleston and wanted a place that was close to nature, as well as various tourist sites. We were very pleased with this apartment. It was super-clean. I was impressed with that. Having a washer and dryer in the apartment was also very helpful. Basic staples and supplies were very adequate: cooking utensils, dinnerware, etc. We enjoyed watching the tide come in and out. There was also a tide chart in the apt so we could figure out when it was safe to kayak without getting stranded during low-tide! There is a grocery store (Harris Teeters) near the apartment which was handy. Using this as a home-base we went to Folly Beach a couple of times, into downtown Charleston several times (a very easy commute), and to McLeod Plantation (nearby) and Magnolia Plantation (also not a huge drive). Mc Lead Plantation was our favorite experience - a meaningful, honest, historically accurate view of plantation life. Todd was very responsive, sent out exceedingly clear instructions, and seemed ready to accommodate any of our unmet needs. We had none.

We would definitely stay here again were we to spend time in Charleston in the future.

Superior to a hotel room.

  • 5 of 5

An excellent choice to vacation. A very quiet neighborhood within a short drive to downtown Charleston or Folly

Beach. Home is very well equipped with all necessities and offers a very relaxing view of the marsh at the end of

the day...perfect for cocktails before dinner. Todd's major concern is about you and your family having a great

vacation. If any concerns arise, he responds within 15 minutes!
