Beautiful pool house

  • 4 of 5

Great pool house for my wife and I. Really enjoyed the seclusion in the middle of downtown and the house had plenty of charm. You can feel close to King St, yet so far away. Will definitely keep in mind for future trips to Charleston. Perfect for two people.

Charming is an Accurate Description

  • 5 of 5

We brought our kids (8 and 6) to Charleston for two nights and a full day of exploration. This was the perfect spot for us as it is within close proximity to everything and it's one of those unique and special places that helps make a vacation more memorable. My wife and I used the second floor bed and my children slept on the sofa bed. We did little more than sleep in the cottage house, but really appreciated the beauty of the cottage and the property on which it is located. My kids loved the koi pond and could have swam in the pool had it been a little warmer and we had more time. The parking was a little tight, but we managed and anyone else could as well- it's worth it! The uniqueness of the property is something I enjoyed immensely and will not soon forget! It would be perfect for a couple looking for a romantic getaway and is great for a family of up to four people. I would definitely stay there again!

Perfect for our short stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely charming! It was clean, classy and perfect location for sight seeing. The visitors center and museum are a quick walk as are stops for the free shuttle and places to eat. We never moved the car. Recommend Hominy Grill a few blocks away. Just be prepared for tight parking and shaky footing on brick walkway. Would return .

Fun cottage with a lot of great restaurants and shopping within walking distance, Secluded feel!

  • 4 of 5

Tucked away in a cobblestone alleyway, this cozy villa is perfect for a charleston getaway. Plan to park and walk or take a carriage ride to get around the historic district. Parking space is a tight squeeze for a large vehicle but we found the easiest way to get our pick up in so not a major issue. Very comfortable layout and beautiful enclosed courtyard make for a very private cozy stay. Great location we walked around the immediate downtown area and easily drove 20 minutes to nearby attractions such as the South Carolina aquarium and across the harbor to patriots point and the mount pleasant area. Would stay here again to try different restaurants and see more sites. So much in the area can't go wrong.

Great spot for a Charleston stay

  • 4 of 5

Loved it. Location is excellent, one block from the upper King St. shops, bars & restaurants. Plenty of room for the two of us and our dog. Having the extra 1/2 bath downstairs was a bonus that was great to have. Outdoor courtyard was a nice little area to hang out. Check this place out for sure! The alley/driveway is tight and so is the parking spot so a big vehicle would be tough to park. Glad we didn't take my F-150 lol.

reasonable value for the money

  • 3 of 5

Overall impression is good.

Things future renters may want to note:

1. We stayed over Christmas week. Since the weather was unusually warm for that season, I cannot evaluate if AC/heating would be sufficient for warmest or for coldest seasons.

2. Beware of very tight driveway and parking spot. It allowed for our Honda CRV to enter and park, but a bigger car could be a problem. Clear statement on the web site could be helpful.

3. Very tiny kitchenette in the living room (1st floor). Do not plan any cooking.

4. It is not at the heart of tourist attractions, but at the short walking distance from the edge of touristic area.

Would recommend this only to a young undemanding couple.

Owner's Response: Dmitry, Thank you for your feedback, it is extremely valuable to us. We did have unusually warm weather around Christmas. The central heat and air system can be controlled by using the thermostat. Charleston is known for it's tight downtown streets and minimal parking. The free off-street parking space provided is a standard size parking space. Larger cars including SUV's fit in the parking space. Like in the rest of city, drivers have to be aware of their surroundings to navigate the tight streets. The kitchenette includes a full size fridge, full size microwave, full size toaster oven, and a stove top with two burners. Many of our guests choose to explore the cuisine that Charleston has to offer, however the kitchenette is there to allow for light cooking. Our rental is located one block from King Street and within walking distance to many of the local attractions. We strive to improve with each and every stay and will take all of your comments into consideration. Our main priority is to be able to offer a very well maintained and comfortable atmosphere for our guests. Again, thank you for your feedback.
