We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would choose this property again!
Weekend with grandkids
The apartment was just as advertised and the location can't be beat. We walked to all of the major attractions.
Jan, the owner, was very helpful throughout the entire process. We highly recommend her listing and would come back again.
Fun girls weekend!
The apartment was very well located, very clean, but the Wi-Fi was very spotty and the mattress I slept and was not very comfortable. Really nice owners to work with, I would stay again!
Thank you, Elizabeth, for your review. Wish you had notified us of the problems when you were here. We make it real easy to find us. Just went to the apartment to check the beds. We did find that one of the two king beds needed additional support underneath and have now rectified that problem. As for spotty internet, I can answer that with one word: Comcast! They are our only provider and we truly cannot control that; we do our very best.
Great location, large spacious rooms
Great unit in a fantastic location
This unit was perfect for our Charleston girls' weekend. The location had easy access to restaurants, bars, the market, and shopping. The apartment itself was bigger than we expected from the pictures -- thanks to some really tall ceilings. Beautiful exposed brick, good AC, and lots of seating made our time in the apartment very pleasant. The two full baths were great -- one is in a closet but it was big enough and didn't feel too cramped. The owner was very friendly and accommodating -- even allowing us to store luggage in the foyer before our flight left on our last day. Highly recommend.
very nice place
The only challenge was the stairs to bring up luggage, no elevator.
Also, the stairs are very slippery when wet, one guest did slip and cut himself.
The odor of marijuana was constant and extreme.
We ignored it.
We clearly intend to inform all guests that we are a walk up. That's why the first line of descriptive copy detailing the apartment reads as follows, "After ascending 19 Broad's exterior staircase off Broad Street, guests enter a secured foyer located off the second floor landing." When we go up and down this staircase we hold on to the handrails and recommend that all customers do the same.
Jacobson Building, as shown on our cover picture, is adjoined to buildings on each side, in addition to outdoor decks and a citizens walkway, including a public sidewalk in front.
I'm happy you were able to ignore the odor, however had you alerted us, we would have checked with the other 3 apartments in Jacobson Building and employees next door.
Some things are best ignored when they are not putting anyone in danger.
Thank you for your Review.
