About the property

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. ....When you enquire please let me know how your group is made, children,couples ...and age range please...Helps me except your booking faster. Thanks

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

Why SHARON JOHNSON chose Historic Old City

Charleston is such a wonderful small city......Charming people, History, Great Restaurants and always something fun going on in the city year round.

What makes this townhome unique

Location,Location,Location.....We walk to everything! Our home is so close to some of the very best restaurants in the city..... we are in the Historic French quarter...which is just amazing to walk around...or take a carriage only a block away...walk the market also a block away. The Battery 3 min walk..where the largest homes along the water are. We meant it Location , Location, Location.

Christmas in Charleston

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we opened the door we felt at home! The home is very well appointed and we wanted for nothing. The location is perfect. It’s just a quick walk to anywhere. Great restaurants, dessert bars, the market and museums. You can’t go wrong with this gem! The home is very clean - spotless really. They are clearly lucky to have Carolyn. The owners were timely with refund as well. We had a great time and would definitely stay here again. We just loved it.

Location - location - location!!!!

Not only is the unit in the perfect location to enjoy the historic section of the city but the owner has thought of absolutely everything to make your stay a pleasurable one. The kitchen has wonderful appliances - both large and small. The bathrooms had all the little accessories such as makeup mirrors, plush towels, great lighting, etc. The unit was spotless. We would certainly stay here again - I highly recommend it.
