FABULOUS!

  • 5 of 5
Loved, loved, loved this property! Super stylish and cozy as well as a great location, we were very happy with this rental. We had our older dog and a 2 year old, which had me a little concerned at first with the spiral staircase, but after blocking it off we didn't have any issues. Great restaurants all in walking distance and also quick delivery from a lot of places - terrific food and hospitality in Charleston and we can't wait to visit again!

GIRLS WEEKEND

  • 2 of 5
I rented this home for a girls weekend.

I received an email from vibrio letting me know to contact the property manager before my second and final payment to make sure it was a safe transaction, as they had recently had some issues. I emailed several times over several weeks and never received a response. Other then one initial email response when I rented this property and had a payment question my e-mails were never returned. Long story short this resulted in several phone calls to vrbo that took up my lunches, and my commute to to work over the next few days, and me thinking (both from things I was told and from emails) that this may have been a false listing and not available after my card had already been charged. After much waisted time and heartache I got Megan's number from vrbo and received a call back from her confirming that everything was ok. She dodged the question about why I had never heard back from her and was less then caring and offered up no explanation when I explained that I had been trying to contact her several times. And yes, my emails all explained what was going on and that I was panicked that the property may not be available and that my credit card information had been compromised.

As far as the propert was concerned the tv in the living room did not work, and frankly after all the difficulty I had getting in touch with Meghan and how I was treated when I did I knew better then to bother to try and have it fixed.

It appeared as though there were no bath mats, only four towels, no hand towels and wash cloths,until I went to run a load of laundry the next day out of necessity and discovered that there was still stuff in the washer and towels, etc in the dryer, so I got to do laundry on my vacation. Oh joy!

When we went to make up the fold out sofa we realized there were still wet sheets that had been put away. Luckily I live locally and had brought an extra set.

The carriage house itself was cute but I am very much put off and upset by everything I went though.

Owner's Response: Please accept our profuse apologies for what you endured on VRBO's side. We cannot take any accountability for them raising alarm regarding your payment. We have never had any issue like this and are unfamiliar with their protocol on that side of things. We pride ourselves in expedient response times to our guests and when we spoke to you we assured you your reservation was confirmed and your payment secure. We do however take accountability for our housekeeping's poor performance regarding the linens. This was an anomaly and has never occurred prior to your experience. We are profusely apologetic that you had such a negative experience in our charming carriage house which, as you can see from our other reviews, is usually well loved. We have spoken to our housekeeping and have implemented changes which we are confident will prevent any linen related issues in the future.
Thank you for taking time to review your stay. We hope you will book with us again in the future to experience the essence of our charming carriage house. Kindly,
Management

Great remodel of a carriage house. Quiet even though it's surrounded by houses and a busy street. Kitchen is awesome. Neighborhood not charming but we just drove to where we wanted to go.

MODERN CARRIAGE HOUSE IN CHARLESTON

  • 4 of 5
My aunt and I recently stayed at the Modern Carriage House in Charleston. The carriage house is clean, bright, and comfortable. Megan, the owner, is really lovely. She is accessible and very accommodating. There was a little problem with the TV and wifi while we were there, which wasn't Megan's fault, but that is the reason for only 4 stars. If you don't mind walking, this is a great place to stay while visiting Charleston.

LOVELY COTTAGE IN A HIP NEIGHBORHOOD

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, along with our two French Bulldogs, stayed at this lovely cottage for a few days at the end of January. Everything that is written about this property is true. The cottage was clean, well furnished, comfortable, and super cozy during the cold snap that paralyzed Charleston. There are lots of restaurants minutes away as well as two yoga studios. The off street parking was a huge plus. I would definitely stay at this property again.
