This nationally registered historical home was built in the early 1800s and is a 35 minute scenic drive to downtown Charleston, Popular beaches and resorts, as well as many historical landmarks and parks. If you are looking for a place defined by natural beauty and Southern Charm, there is nothing closer to stepping back into history where times were simpler than the village of Rockville, South Carolina. My place is good for couples, families (with kids), big groups, and Pets.

Charleston Sc- It was close to some very nice restaurants and far enough away from the Charleston traffic. It was wonderful to stay in such a lovely historic home. I wish it was closer. We'd bring our friends. The hostess was wonderful also.

This house is amazing--full of history and the river was outside the front door. Sitting on the porch with family and friends watching the boats pass by was the ultimate. The village was perfect for walking along the river front and through the country roads....More

About the neighbourhood
The Rockville Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. The village of Rockville on Wadmalaw Island is located on a bluff overlooking Bohicket Creek. This summer community's serene, slow-moving, life-style is reflected in its architecture and landscape. Although houses vary in size and degree of architectural importance, nearly all have spacious porches, raised foundations and large central hallways designed for summer comfort and relaxation. Live oaks draped with Spanish moss and palmettos dominate the landscape and add to the quaint atmosphere of the community.
Getting around
If you bring your boat or kayaks you can put them in at the public boat landing 5 minutes down the road called Cherry Point. Red's Ice house and Kiawah are right around the corner. ( 10 minutes by boat, 45 by car.) Rockville is on Wadmalaw Island. Maybank highway takes you all the way from Rockville to John's island to James island. Downtown is a 30 minute drive, and you can visit the angel oak tree on the way. The nearest place to get groceries is Bi-lo on John's island (15 min drive) so make sure you stock up on the way to the house.
