What a wonderful place.

  • 5 of 5

Tucked away at the end of the little alley with a handful of the neatest private homes, the pool house is in a yard protected by a high wall and secure gate. Even though you are right in Charleston, a short walk to plenty of action, you feel like you are miles, and about 100 years, away. It is a oasis to serve as a base for your exploration of the amazing city of Charleston. Elegant simplicity. Perfect for a romantic getaway.

perfect little carriage house!

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to stay at this property for 4 days/3 nights last week. The location was very convenient to King Street & easily accessible from different spots in the city. The house was a perfect size for our small family - 2 adults + 1 toddler - and we appreciated the convenience of the kitchenette & washer/dryer. Plenty of towels, linens & toiletries. The floors were not terribly clean - lots of dog hair left behind from previous tenants - but that wouldn't stop us from coming back again.

The property needs to be cleaned up on the outside as well as on the inside. Light fixtures with many bugs and dust bunnies throughout. Mosquito everywhere and frogs were very loud all night.

The sofa pull out is not good for sleeping. The mattress is so thin allowing the cross bars to dig into your body. The couple ended up leaving the sofa intact and taking turns sleeping on the sofa and floor which worked except the sofa is not long enough for anyone taller than 5 ft and both of them are taller. I would not recommend more than 1 couple stay at this location at a time since it's so small and the pull out is not acceptable for sleeping.

On a positive note the kitchen and baths were clean.

Enchanting little getaway

  • 4 of 5

Daughter and I spent a long weekend in Charleston to celebrate her 40th birthday. Loved this place. Great for walking into and around the city. Lots of places to eat close by, and a short Uber ride to some of the big name restaurants. Very safe, quiet, secure location, every amenity you could need, and sweet cozy setting.

With all that praise, one caveat, the secondary bed, pullout sleeper sofa, is Very uncomfortable.

Will definitely return with my husband, much prefer this accommodation to hotels.

Cottage off Upper King

  • 4 of 5

Quaint, easy walk to upper king street with numerous restaurants and shops. Beautiful gardens and the heated pool was a nice relaxing touch.

Aesthetically Pleasing and Tidy Dwelling

  • 5 of 5

A precious Aesthetically Pleasing and Tidy Dwelling set in a Stunningly Beautiful Court Yard. We had everything we needed. The owners are generous with linens, towels, soaps and comforts. We felt wonderfully taken care of from the moment we signed up to rent and with all the communications. Our only suggestion would be the pull out couch bed isn't at the same level of comfort as everything else. Thank you for the gift of such a fabulous place to rent!!
