About Nels and Shelly Davis

I grew up in Arkansas and visited my Grandpa and Grandma Brown in the Ozark mountains when I was a little girl. I've always felt more at home in the country near farms and dirt roads. My husband and I fell in love with the Givhans Ferry area right outside of Summerville, South Carolina. We've made this area our home and we love sharing the natural setting and laid back country life with our guests! We hope you will come and stay in the little "Brown" cottage and enjoy your time in the country right outside historic Charleston, SC!

Nels and Shelly Davis purchased this cottage in 2014

My best friend and I always use VRBO when we go on our girls only vacations. This was by far the nicest place we've stayed. The beds were fabulous. The place was spotless. I could go on and on. Loved it.

The property was very beautiful and was relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

The location of the property was a nice woodsy kind of setting, but was fairly close to any location we wanted or needed to go. The house was very clean and the owners were very accomadating. This is my second trip to South Carolina and I would have no problem visiting at this location again. The only thing I regret is not having more time here!!

Clean and comfy cottage with lots of surprises.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage ( especially the soaking tub) and were so pleased with all the owners had provided to make our stay comfy. The cottage was rustic and cozy while offering all modern conveniences....the floor plan makes the most of the space and the layout with one bedroom upstairs and one down was perfect for us and our family. I will definatly be renting this cottage again.

Quiet, clean, comfortable, well furnished,

  • 5 of 5

I can not express the overwhelming satisfaction of my stay here in words. The cabin is perfect from top to bottom and the owners are more than just accommodating. They went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and felt at home.

If I ever have to go back to the Charleston area I will be sure to book this place again. You will not find a more comfortable place to stay for this price anywhere.
