I am sorry it has taken me so long to contact you, but I wanted to make sure I took the time to let you know how much I enjoyed renting the studio. It ended up just being my mother and I, and the space far exceeded our expectations. The location was perfect and I was ready to move-in permanently!
I have traveled all over, and am happy to say that Charleston still remains one of my favorite places to visit.
Thank you for providing us with such a great place to stay.
Great historical building. The high ceilings were a delightful surprise. Great use of power strips.
First let me say Jan and Mike went above and beyond to ensure our stay was easy and comfortable. The heat was not working in the original unit we were to stay in so they "upgraded" us to the two bedroom apt for the first two nights (we had booked that for the end of our trip as another couple joined us.) The two bedroom unit had a great living space conducive to visiting and a large dining room table. Working gas fireplace. We did not need a car as we walked everywhere and took Uber when necessary. We also had a late flight out and were able to stay in the apartment until 2:30 as no one was coming in behind us. Those small things made a great trip, awesome.
The unit was very clean. Comfortable king beds. One note: One bedroom has an en suite bath and the second king bedroom uses the full bath off the living room. Not an issue for us but worth noting. Plenty of supplies for cooking, coffee, etc. Ice maker in freezer. Ironing board and iron and hair dryer.
We heard some city noise in the am (garbage trucks etc) but it was not intrusive.
Charleston is far and away the most friendly city we have ever visited. Everyone from waiters, to guides, to people on the street went out of their way to talk to us, help us (carry packages, give directions and recommendations, and show us their homes!) The food is amazing. We had three out of 5 of the best meals we've ever eaten. (The Husk, Eli's Table, and The Obstinate Daughter).
We are planning our next trip already.
Thank you to Jan and Mike for providing a "home away from home."
Just spent 4 nights at property at 19 Broad Street in historic downtown Charleston, the unit was very comfortable, felt like home, and had everything you will need and more....extras were great treats from the owners, highly recommend this rental. The Jacobson's are awesome hosts and provided great information
It was beautifully done and the two bedrooms at opposite ends of the living room provide privacy. As lovers of old archetecture, this place had many features to peak our interest. The trolley was convenient and free but we choose to walk the streets to see the sights. Yes, we would love to stay here again!
We rented both units for 3 couples visiting Charleston for a long weekend. The apartment is in a GREAT location and you can walk all over Charleston from here! The apartments are in a historical building and very comfortable. The could use a bit of "updating" in regards to appliances, tvs, etc. and the furniture is well loved, but comfortable. I would stay here again anyway! If you want to stay in Charleston and feel like a local, walk to restaurants, tours, and just enjoy the battery and history, this is your place!
This was the perfect place for my two daughters and I. We came for a Thanksgiving get away. The owner was very helpful with kitchen details, as we were cooking on Thanksgiving. We didn't need to bring a thing!
We enjoyed the living space and two large bedrooms. There was so much to do within walking distance that we only used the car one day. Unfortunately my car didn't start, with a quick call to Jan, we had the number of a local service company and they sorted us out.
I highly recommend 19 Broad Street and look forward to returning!
