We take care of the details so you don’t have to...

We believe that your time belongs to you, that planning a vacation should not be more stressful than being on vacation, and that the best advice a guidebook can give is, “Ask a local.”

I was born and raised in South Carolina and, although I migrated north for a while, my heart has always been here. After ten years of practicing law in DC, it was time for a new adventure. We packed our bags and headed south, all the way to Charleston—back to our friends and family, and back to our roots.

And now on to the next adventure: townscout.

I created townscout to give other people what I always wanted: time off, well spent.

Every year my family spends a week at the beach together. Eight adults, eight kids, two hula hoops, piles of beach toys, a dozen beach chairs, pool floats, a paddleboard, some sidewalk chalk, and the inevitable ping pong tournament. It’s a lot of fun. In fact, it’s the most fun. But it is also a lot of work.

An idea was born

What if we had help?

What if we showed up and the refrigerator was full and the beach chairs were rented?

What if we knew the best place for ice cream and dolphins and watching the sunset?

What if everything was . . . easy?

Then my time off would be truly well spent. That is what townscout is all about: giving your time back to you.

Explore Areas!

Settle in at the beach

Let us help you settle in to your beach house. We will stock the pantry, visit the farmer’s market, organize beach chairs, kayaks, and yoga on the beach, arrange baby sitters and day camps for the kids, and take care of things you did not even know you needed.

Explore Downtown

We love this city, and we love helping you discover its secret charms. Eat with the locals, visit the farmer’s market, spend a day in the galleries a bit further a field, and wind your way through Charleston’s lovely old streets. We will show you the way.

Weekends Away

A weekend with the girls, a weekend with the guys, or just catching up with old friends? Make the most of your time here by leaving the planning to us. Spa days, yoga retreats, golf outings, kayaking trips, and we still have a few other tricks up our sleeve.

For locals, too

Locals need love, too, and we are always happy to lend an extra hand. Grocery deliveries, CSA pick-ups, whatever you need . . . we will take care of you as well.
