About Kira Golub

We are current owners of another VRBO unit (232857) that we renovated in Charleston 3 years ago. With the birth of our first daughter in August we decided that it was time for me to stay home with her and take on a new renovation project for VRBO. We couldn't be happier with the way it has all worked out!

Kira Golub purchased this cottage in 2012

Homey, Comfy Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We were down from NYC for my wife to direct a play in the Piccolo Spoleto festival, traveling with our 12-year-old Italian Greyhound, Luna. We kept the Murphy bed down the whole time for Luna, and still felt like we had plenty of room. The studio's decor is simple but stylish, functional yet comfortable, and relaxingly in keeping with the beachy character of the area. All the amenities are provided for easy living. We especially loved the patio out back, a perfect place for morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. The location is also perfect, with a quiet getaway feel, but close to local dining and services (and lovely Shem Creek Park), and an easy drive from downtown Charleston. We felt right at home here, and will have lovely memories of our trip.

Great Charleston Area Location

  • 5 of 5
As VRBO owners ourselves, my wife and I are very particular about the properties we select when traveling. This location in Charleston is outstanding and has so much to offer. The studio is beautiful and so efficient. Don't let the studio description fool you. It is large and has everything you need. It has a private patio area, and more than enough room for your stay. It even has a Murphy bed which, when folded up, allows a huge space large enough for yoga of other exercise. The furnishings are first rate and the owners couldn't be more accommodating. The instructions are clear and we had no reason to contact the owners, however, they did contact us to insure our comfort and to make certain everything was up to our expectations.

The location is superb. There are so many shops, restaurants, bars and activities within a short drive, or even a comfortable walk, that we couldn't even take advantage of them all. I guess we will just have to return to finish our exploring.

We have stayed at other properties with the same owner and would not hesitate an instant to return to any of their properties.

If you are planning a trip to the Charleston area I strongly recommend contacting these owners. If you are lucky they will have one of their properties available and don't be surprised if you book a return visit while you are there. It is that special.

Shem Creek Perfection

  • 5 of 5
Wow! Such a pleasant space, my husband and I were fortunate to find for our week long stay in the Shem Creek area. Although we have often stayed in downtown Charleston in another property owned by Kira and Dewey, this was an opportunity to explore another wonderful area. It was immaculate and had everything we needed to make out stay special. The fact that it has a delightful outdoor private patio was a bonus. I enjoyed coffee and a good book out there on several occasions. The Shem Creek walkability factor of this property combined with it's proximity to downtown, is terrific. We enjoyed walking the boardwalk at Shem Creek park, the Shem Creek Bar and Grill, Vickery's, and the Okra Grill as well as shops in the Old Village, and the beach at Sullivan's Island. The nearby plaza has a wonderful wine store. And not far down the road is Southern Seasons, an absolutely incredible store for anyone who enjoys food or cooking. It even offers day classes and wine tastings :-) Didn't get to kayak this time (it's just down the block) but plan to next time! As always, Kira and Dewey were lovely and gracious when it came to answering any questions we had. This was the perfect home base. Loved it! Can't wait to go back.

Looks nice But Owner Not so Much

  • 2 of 5
I had just quit my job and wanted to get away and stay somewhere nice. I was greeted by the owner, who upon arrival was a seemingly nice person. i gave two checks to the owner, one for the rent Agreed upon mutually.
I was given a brief tour and the owner could not tell me how to operate the a/c unit. If you plan on staying there this summer, the ac cannot go below 78 or it will freeze up.
Then the internet did not work for either my studio or the main cottage.
Faults aside I did enjoy the location-the okra grill is recommended.
What set me over the edge was the owner sending me a text stating the garbage disposal didnt work and the couch was scratched.as i had no other information i became upset this was not inspected by the accuser who still had my security deposit, and took two weeks to return it only after i texted her two weeks later.

Owner's Response: I’m really disappointed by this review. Between our three homes on vrbo (232857,443097,443098) we have 72 reviews, all of which are 5 stars and pay numerous compliments to my husband and myself as property owners and as people. This was an unfortunate experience with a guest who was angry and impossible to please.
I received a text that the Internet was not working the evening of his first night. We offered to come by at 8:00 am the next day to sort out the issue to which he responded that if we didn’t he would be contacting his attorney. The Internet which is tied to the cottage on the property occasionally gets unplugged and replaced with chargers for phones, ipads etc. when guests don’t realize that the power strip is where the modem is plugged in. There is now a sign in the cottage asking that guests not remove that plug from the wall to avoid any complications with the Internet.
The following day I received a photograph of our AC unit dripping water down the wall and pooling on the floor. When I kindly asked him to raise it above 70 degrees to prevent the unit from dripping he obliged. (There is now a manual as to how to use the AC unit in the home.) He had it set below 70 (not 78) and this home stays plenty cool! It’s a brand new unit!
We repaired the Internet, sorted out the AC, and dealt with multiple texts/calls every day only to have him then text us to complain about the weather.
I gave this gentleman a discount on his stay after his sob story about being unemployed and as my husband pointed out… no good deed goes unpunished. His security deposit was returned in full within the 30-day window, which our contract clearly states. In five years of utilizing VRBO we have only kept one security deposit from a guest who insisted we keep it after substantial damage to a doorframe by their dog.
If you have any questions or concerns about the review I would be MORE than happy to chat with you.

Great location. New feel. Spotless.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 5 nights with our gentle dog. Extremely clean and modern. Bath and shower were spotless. Nice hot shower. With or without a dog a great location to explore not only Mt Pleasant and Sullivan's Island but also easy access to Historic Charleston. Walking distance to many great restaurants and Shem Creek. Safe. We stayed in the Studio.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I - along with our dogs - stayed in the studio during the Memorial Day holiday weekend. I cannot say enough good things about this property! We have always wanted to take a trip to the beach with our dogs, but it's so hard to find a good, clean place to stay that is actually dog-friendly instead of just a place that lets dogs stay. Kira's studio was perfect! It was clean, beautiful, cozy and they made great use of the space. Having the backyard area was awesome for the dogs and a great place for morning coffee and breakfast. The location is awesome - plenty of food options within walking distance and just a short drive to the beach. We were so impressed with everything and can't wait to come back for our next trip.

I highly recommend this place to couples (with or without dogs) but especially responsible dog owners who just want a nice place to stay where their 4-legged family members are welcomed. We'll certainly be back and have already recommended it to all of our friends!
