Charleston House Rental Photos and Description

Lofted king bed & pull-out couch, full bathroom, perfect size for two people.

This charming carriage house was built in 1867 and is attached to a main house which is included in many of Charleston's daily tours. It embodies many things Charleston stands for. Lofted ceilings, exposed brick and wood floors give way to a cozy 900 square foot hidden gem. It boasts a full kitchen and living room area equipped with a pull out couch. The carriage house includes a 'lofted' upstairs with a king size bed, walk in closet and full bathroom. Just steps outside the front door is a picturesque in ground pool, surrounded by palm trees. Easy access to historical streets, Charleston Harbor and everything downtown has to offer.

The Charleston Food and Wine Festival, Charleston Fashion Week and Picolo Spoleto are just a few of the cultural events happening year round. This cozy getaway home would be the perfect setting for honeymooners, sailors passing through or anyone looking to enjoy some time in the heart of historic Charleston.

Amazing!!

This place is exactly as the photos appear. Walking in my wife and I were amazed by how nice it was. Complimentary bottle of wine was a nice way to start our trip. Everything was so close with a nice short walk! I can't say enough how much we enjoyed our stay...we will for sure be back in the future!!

Great Property and Great Location!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a long weekend getaway. The loft is lovely; perfect for two people. We loved being able to walk to almost everything. This is a perfect location! The previous reviews helped in explaining the stairs. They are perfectly stable and safe, but probably not for anyone who is afraid of heights. We had good communication with the owner and the property manager. We went on a great walking tour by Tommy Dew - would highly recommend him. We ate at so many wonderful places. If you have a car, it is worth the drive to go over the new Ravenel Bridge to Mt. Pleasant and the draw bridge to Sullivan's Island. So much beauty in this area. We would highly recommend the Loft on Queen for your Charleston stay. We are already talking about when we can go back.

Live like a local... Perfect location!

My husband and I stayed here for a four day romantic getaway, and we found the property to be just perfect for us! We've used homeaway.com for several of our past vacations, and I must say that this one was one of the best we've stayed in. The converted carriage house is extremely clean, modern in it's renovation, very cozy and welcoming. Upon arrival, we were greeted with fresh flowers and a bottle of wine. Linens and towels were provided and were lush. Furnishings were comfortable and tasteful, and the kitchen was appointed with everything we needed. Best of all, we felt like even though we were so close to all the action, the neighborhood was extremely quiet, and we had complete privacy tucked away in the back of a beautiful single house.

We had perfect weather while we were there with temperatures in the 80s, so we were even able to enjoy the pool for a rare October treat!

The location of this place is perfect. It is just a few short blocks to Meeting Street and the heart of historic downtown. Because of it's central location, we were able to get to all our favorite spots in town, including the College of Charleston campus, upper King Street for all the fun bars and restaurants, lower King Street for all the great shopping, the Battery for ogling the historic mansions, and any part of the historic district from the old Citadel and park to Rainbow Row and well beyond. We didn't get in our car once since we could walk everywhere. I've spent many trips in Charleston, always staying in the historic district, but this particular locale was far and away the most convenient and best. We would definitely stay here again.

One word of caution, if you have a fear of heights, you might not enjoy the steps. They are slat stairs, so one can see through the rise, and they are open on both sides with a handrail on only the right side. My husband and I thought them to be beautiful and we appreciated the airiness they created by not closing off the room. They are a completely secure and safe set of stairs, obviously, but I know my mother would have been grounded on the first floor, because of her fear. Then again, we would've never brought her on a romantic getaway with us... haha

Fantastic place! Fantastic location! Fantastic city! Highly recommended!

The property is exactly as pictured and quite comfortable and clean. We enjoyed the courtyard and pool area, very relaxing and pleasant. The neighborhood location was wonderful. We rented bikes and enjoyed exploring Charleston that way.

The management staff were friendly and pleasant, but we had some hiccups along the way. When we arrived the key to the property was not in the lockbox as promised, and we had no phone number for our contact Lesley. After doing some quick Google research on our smartphone we managed to track down a maintenance person at the management company, and Lesley came quickly to let us in.

The pool was evidently not functioning properly due to a leak, so it made a fair amount of loud gurgling noises, and it was loud enough to hear in the bedroom at night. After two nights, the maintenance staff did stop by to fill the pool and work on it, which corrected the noise problem.

The offstreet parking is a wonderful amenity, but we did have trouble with the management company's staff parking their cars behind ours in the driveway without telling us or indicating if they were going to be around the property to move their cars. We were able to work around it, but on our last morning we did have to pound on the main house door to get an employee to move her car so we could get to the airport to make our flight.

My husband and I stayed at the Carriage House during our wedding weekend! Upon arrival, we were greeted with flowers and a bottle of wine which is exactly what we needed after a long day of traveling.

The place is clean and very comfortable. We dined out most of the time, but there are plenty of supplies to prepare meals if you wanted. We did not get to use the pool but we were able to sit outside and look at the stars one evening. Parking in downtown Charleston is hard to find, so the off street parking is definitely a plus. We met the owner, he was very friendly and asked if we needed anything else for our stay.

The carriage house is within walking distance to shopping and restaurants, which is what we love. We could easily walk everywhere in the historic district!

Just as pictured. Perfect location

My husband and I love Charleston and stayed here to celebrate both our birthdays. It is just as pictured, actually it is even better. The place is clean and very comfortable, furnishings beautiful. While we dined out, there are plenty of supplies to prepare meals if you wanted. We did not use the pool but the area is beautiful as well just to sit out and enjoy. The off street parking is definitely a plus, with parking being so tight in Charleston. We met the owner once, very friendly and asked if we needed anything else for our stay. You are within walking distance to shopping and restaurants, which is what we love. Just a short walk away is Poogans Porch where we had a Sunday Bruch, it was delicious. Also, Queen St Grocery is a great place for coffee and a snack. For our birthday dinner, we chose Halls Chophouse on King Street which turned out to be an excellent decision. Overall, this carriage house is a perfect place to stay if you want to visit Charleston and all it has to offer. It is comfortable, clean and convenient to everything ! We Loved It ! Thank you to Lesley and Peter for sharing such a gem.
