Just the two of us, and the condo is 950 sq ft. Not a fancy place, but I often forget to lock the door at nite, area is so calm. Walking distance to several stores, restaurants and businesses. 15 minutes from all the downtown nitelife, and 15 minutes the other way takes you to Folly Beach. Full size washer and dryer in the unit, cable TV and computer with internet access available. This is not the Ritz, but it is clean, comfortable and convenient to all you want to do in the city. Car is a 98 saturn, lots of miles on it, but it runs well too.
QUIET, lots of areas to walk to in the neighborhood, gas, grocery, drugstore, restaurants, etc all within walking distance, but neighborhood is still calm. New BiLo will have fitness center and WiFi access, one restaurant across street already does. Bus picks you up on corner, but since this is island (James Island) it only runs about every hour or so. Beach is close even on heavy traffic to beach days, never more than 20 minutes to get there. Pool and tennis court, sand volleyball court, and small kids play area. Some teen and preteen kids, so sitters are available.
Single parent of preteen (one more year-yikes!) who plays tennis, and loves the water. Government employee although I am finishing degree in Marketing and hope to move up in the world and make real money soon. OR pitch it all and live like bohemian on tropical island. Speak some spanish, and smattering of several other languages, but none fluently. Only places I love to go are warm, on the clear ocean water, and with white or black sand beaches.
