French Quarter Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

A wonderful townhouse 'Johnson's Pied-a'- terre' in the heart of the Historic French Quarter District. Tucked away in the courtyard of the historic ''Lodge Alley Inn '' with a fountain and gas lights to add to the quaintness of this very special place. This alley connects East bay to State Street.

Relax in your own walled and gated private courtyard, or sit on the balcony and just enjoy the sound of the fountain or flicker of the gas lights. Before walking steps to the finest restaurants Charleston has to offer. Only two blocks from the Old Straw Market and Water Front Park on the harbor. You are right where you need to be in this remarkable location to enjoy all downtown Charleston has to offer.

The townhouse has just been newly furnished and sports fabulous original wide plank heart of pine floors throughout. Two bedrooms upstairs with queen beds, private baths for both. A small balcony from the master bedroom with view of the fountain. New kitchen with top of the line appliances. There is a queen sleep sofa in the living room with use of half bath.

The townhouse works nicely for two couples. Please check out our (video) virtual tour..Located under LINKS TO MORE INFORMATION.

We live and work on Martha's Vineyard, MA

We both would love to spend more time in Charleston, but work gets in the way. We have to pay the mortgage!!! So we thought we would share our special home with you our guests.

We are so lucky to have Carolyn our housekeeper who takes care of the house for us , she keeps it sparkling in between our guests visits.

SHARON JOHNSON purchased this townhome in 2007

A Wonderful Stay with a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Our foursome just had an amazing stay at Sharon and Tom's Lodge Alley home. Read the other reviews...the location is indeed perfect. Two minute walk here. Four minute walk there. Right around the corner two of our favorite Charleston restaurants (High Cotton, Fleet Landing). Parking garage nearby with easy in and out (paid when you depart garage each time). The two story unit itself is truly well decorated, maintained and perhaps the cleanest rental we have ever made (kudos to their cleaning person!). Oh, and such a pleasure to walk on beautiful old wood floors clean as a whistle! The unit opens up to a small private charming patio with plenty of shade and character. Then right out the home gate is the larger Lodge Alley courtyard, another relaxing and protected place to sit or meet a group. Betty and I had the front bedroom, with hall bath, which had a perfect bed for us. The other couple had the en-suite and enjoyed it also. Living space downstairs very comfortable for the four of us. Kitchen well equipped, with all you would need. (And we didn't even cook anything!). Overall, we found the unit very well stocked with all the right necessities, as well as a few "extra" items that were appreciated. We would definitely stay here the next time we visit, and certainly do highly recommend it to you. Thanks again for a great stay!

Comfortable and Stylish

  • 5 of 5

Lodge Alley has a lovely charm which matches Charleston to a tee. The house is spacious and cool a lovely retreat after a hot day exploring. It is ideally situated for walking to the many restaurants and shops. There are plenty of car parking sites but they tend to be costly we found free parking on Murray Boulevard which was a lovely 10/15 minutes walk away.

Historic Charm with Modern Convenience

  • 5 of 5

This was the PERFECT spot for my family (husband and two young adult children) to stay to enjoy Charleston, an annual event that we look forward to all year! The location is ideal for easy walking access to all the sites (we were delighted to have dinner at Husk this trip, after our traditional cocktail hour at The Gin Joint). The unit could not have been more comfortable and clean - all the necessary spots (kitchen, bathrooms) were completely updated, while keeping the authentic feel of Charleston in the 18th and 19th century.

The booking and check in process couldn't have been easier!!

Thank you to the lovely couple who share this treasure!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully appointed two bedroom property to stay as you enjoy Charleston! The location is ideal -- you walk right out to either State Street or East Bay and have every selection of food, shopping, bars, etc. Charleston is a walking city so venture out to Queen Street and see the history. We enjoyed the King Street shopping, too. This property also affords you privacy since it is tucked away off the street and although we didn't use the kitchen much, it is very nice and there if you need it. The two bedrooms upstairs are gorgeous and the comfy beds will give you a good night's sleep! We enjoyed breakfast at East Bay Meeting House -- best lattes ever! The girl there told us they use the local King Bean coffee. Be aware that you will pay for covered parking since street parking is only for an hour. If there is any downside, the parking is it. All in all, we would definitely come back to this property and highly recommend it.

Very Nice stay

  • 5 of 5

My family loved our stay in Charleston on the fourth of July week. The apartment is in a great location, right in the middle of the historic district, and close to waterfront park. The apartment was spotless and plenty of cleaning supplies were available if needed.The apartment is well appointed with all the comforts of home you can think of. The beds were very comfortable and the linens were top quality as well. We really enjoyed the patio to sit at in the morning and enjoy our coffee and plan our day. Sharon Johnson was right on top of anything that was needed and answered any questions in a very timely manner. I will definitely look to stay here again on our future trips to Charleston!

Beautiful decor and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This property was the perfect location for our stay in Charleston. Our daughter was getting married on Saturday at a venue in Charleston, so we arrived on the Wednesday before. The home is in a great location. We were able to walk to several of the restaurants where we had scheduled events. The home is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. I can't wait to return and stay for a time of sightseeing, dining and relaxing!
