“My wife and I spent several wonderful days enjoying Charleston. Our Exchange was perfect for us. Pamela, the owner,(an absolute doll) made "life easy", with simple ideas and instructions. Her adorable (not meant to mean small) one bedroom condo (townhouse type) (with option for two bedrooms) is just a short convenient drive to downtown. Even the location of her condo (townhouse) is so convenient to shopping, local restaurants and "highways and byways" that you feel that you are "home" and in familiar surroundings. Cleanliness is of the utmost importance to us as well as comfort and convenience (thus our headline). We loved Charleston, and are now considering having another couple join us for our next visit. We won't have to start searching for a place to exchange, we'll just contact Pamela. We have made several successful exchanges and Pamela surely knows how to make it easy. Thank you so much.”
Pam's reviewsAs a host (2)
“I had the opportunity to spend 3 weeks in the home of Pam. It was a very nice condo just outside of Charleston, and south of a beautiful little town called Summerville. The unit was very clean and had all the luxuries I expect from a home exchange. The neighbors were very nice and I felt very secure, as I was there by myself. I traveled to all the small islands around Charleston and after many trips to Charleston I could well understand why it is so popular. I would contact Pam again for more time at her place when and if I return to Charleston. Not only did I share her home but feel I have a new friend. Barbara.”
