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.

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.

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!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We found everything to be exactly as advertised. We stayed five nights in this very comfortable home. We enjoyed the private patio in the mornings and evenings. The kitchen was well furnished and everything was nice and clean. In walking distance to many restaurants, attractions, the market, and the waterfront. Owners were quick to respond with information. The security deposit was refunded promptly. We would definitely stay here again!

The PERFECT wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this beautiful townhouse the weekend of my wedding (4/15 - 4/17). It was the perfect spot for my family and friends to hang out at after the rehearsal Friday night. There was plenty of room and the decor is amazing! Saturday we had brunch at High Cotton restaurant (delicious!) and then we had our hair and makeup done in this lovely setting. The many windows created the perfect spot for makeup with all of the natural lighting. Saturday night and Sunday my new husband and I loved the private terrace and patio. This is a place we will definitely return to! We left a few items in the townhouse by accident and the wonderful cleaning crew saved them for us and arranged for us to pick them up. They were very accommodating! The description of this townhouse is accurate and the owners are very easy to work with. Highly recommend!!
