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.

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.

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.

The epitome of the Charleston experience. Don't miss it.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been coming to Charleston for 20 years. This, by far, is the best. It's the perfect location, the perfect house, and the perfect hosts. This is where you want to be.

Charleston is a walking City. This place is located directly at the center of shopping, dining, and touring. It's a block and a half South of the Market, and a block from Waterfront Park.

The interior is classic Charleston charm. Don't hesitate to rent this place! We'll be back

Perfectly located and wonderfully appointed!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place from which to explore Charleston! The apartment was wonderfully appointed and oh so comfortable! The courtyard was perfect to sit outside and enjoy the weather, morning coffee and evening cocktails. Practically everything Charleston has to offer is within close walking distance, meaning if you over-shop in the many great stores, dropping the purchases is just minutes away, making the walk-about in The Holy City even better. The beds, linens and towels were top notch and very comfortable. We easily found everything we needed in the kitchen, but to be fair we only needed coffee in the morning since we were not going to pass up Charleston’s great restaurants. The owners were even thoughtful enough to provide umbrellas, a small thing that becomes so important to enjoying the city on a rainy day. Two couples would be very comfortable here, as we were. One of the upstairs bedrooms has an en-suite full bath while the master’s bath with beautiful tiled walk-in shower is just outside the bedroom door.

We hope this apartment is available for when we return to visit Charleston. But given how great it is, book as early as possible as we will.

Excellent in every way: location, amenities and owner communication

  • 5 of 5

This place is so lovely! Very nicely appointed with top of the line appliances in the galley kitchen, beautiful furnishings and a very enjoyable private patio with furniture and umbrella. The location is perfect for walking to the battery, so many of the excellent Charleston restaurants, the city market etc. would love to come back - thanks so much!

Beautiful towhouse in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for my son's wedding and could not be happier. This townhouse is lovely: comfortable and well outfitted. The decor is beautiful and in excellent condition. We also rented the unit next door and it could not compare to this one. The location is perfect with excellent restaurants within walking distance and many Charleston tourist sites. I wish I booked a longer stay.

Great house excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this house. It is very tastefully done, roomy and very comfortable. It is in an excellent and central location for the historic area, dining, shopping, etc. there are some small signs around, but they are helpful and not obtrusive. The house is very well equipped with anything you should need. With the lovely courtyard patio and living area this is far nicer than the hotels. We have stayed in a number of the nice hotels in Charleston and would stay here again rather in one of those hotels. You can’t go wrong with this house.
