Resturants, historic spots of interest, fine shopping, galleries and the Battery are all within walking distance.

Whether you are first time visitor or a seasoned traveler to the low country you will not find a better location than 4 Tradd. This was the first time we used VRBO and to be honest we were very concerned about what we were getting our selves into. The cottage is clean, warm and inviting and we knew when we entered for the first time we made the right choice. We were not disappointed. The home is well appointed and well stocked with everything you need. Parking, which can be an issue, was not a problem. Dollar for dollar you will not get a better value than renting 4 Tradd. I would be remiss if I didn't mention the owners. Their star rating would be a ten. From start to finish they couldn't have been more attentive and helpful. They were responsive and always available to assist us in any way possible. Overall we loved 4 Tradd so much we stayed for two months. Be certain, we WILL be back.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful cottage is in a great location in Historic Charleston. It's within walking distance to excellent shopping, restaurants, The Battery, White Point Garden and many other historical sites. Love it so much I've been back three times. It has all the charm you would expect when you rent in Charleston. The owners are wonderful and you can tell they love this place as much as I do. I definitely will be requesting it again next year! It's a fantastic place to stay.

This is the most amazing place. Great location, very short walk to the "water" park, historical landmarks and fantastic Charleston Restaurants. Need I say more? The homeowners are fantastic, willing to suggest restaurants or things to do. I would give it more stars if I could!! Fantastic!!

I cannot say enough nice things about this place. It is so close to everything and the owners were so helpful.

The entire apartment is cozy and is located on a very historical street. The layout is wonderful for a couple with guests or older children.

I would like to return.

Located one block from the waterfront park and diagonally across the street from the dog park.
