Charming, Quiet 1 Bdrm Cottage in Avondale 5 Mins From Downtown Charlesto

Bedrooms 1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Just Listed! Be five minutes from all the amazing things Downtown Charleston has to offer while being in a private, quiet space of your own! Stylish, modern decor reflects the coolness of the new Charleston.

Detached, private cottage with King bed in bedroom and Sealy sofa pullout in living room. Island kitchen, easy parking on side street in charming neighborhood. Washer and Dryer in the unit. The sofa is a pullout with a Sealy mattress which can accommodate two small kids.

Great location and Avondale style. Cottage is best suited for 3 adults max, but could absolutely accommodate a family of four with two kids small enough to share the pullout, which is a double.

Local property manager (20 year resident of Charleston) to handle all your needs. We want you to have a memorable stay. Need something - ask us!

We love the vibe of Avondale. We feel its the coolest part of Charleston outside of downtown. We're five minutes drive from MUSC and downtown. Three minute walk to one of Charlestons best Mexican Restaurants for happy hour!

Wifi, Cable, convenient parking....peaceful.

Very Nice!

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, clean cottage in quiet residential area. Very spacious, with a walk in closet in the bedroom. Would recommend to family/friends. Much better than a hotel room!

Enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

We had an enjoyable 3 day stay in this little cottage. It was ideally located for us to get to the historic district in 10-15 minutes and to Folly Beach in about 10-15 minutes. Everything we needed was included (ironing board/iron, hair dryer) and we especially appreciated the use of the washer and dryer. Great little place for our stay in Charleston.

What a sweet cottage!

  • 5 of 5

I really loved staying at the cottage for a month while visiting my daughter who lives here. Charleston is my favorite city to visit, there is so much to do, beaches, amazing restaurants, music, museums, the wine and food festival, plantation tours, farmers markets, shopping, and a lot of history to soak up. The location is an easy drive or Uber to everywhere and on a quiet street in a cute neighborhood. Vance, the property manager was great! So easy to work with, answering my questions about booking and then very helpful once I "moved in". Any small issues I had, he fixed promptly. For example I couldn't get the tv to work the first night and he talked me through it on the phone and got it working quickly. He is extremely responsive by email, text or phone and I appreciate that! I didn't need to contact him much at all because everything was fine most of the time

Internet worked great. The bedroom and living room are large. There are all the basics for cooking if you need that. Plenty of extra sheets, pillows, towels and a washer and dryer. Air conditioning and heat worked well, the weather was fluctuant enough over the month for me to use both Shower was nice, water got hot enough and pressure was great. The yard is well kept with beautiful landscaping, sweet flowering hedges, and other foliage, and a little garden table and chairs. Room In the driveway for two cars

Great spot, good rates too! Thanks y'all!

Cute Cottage

This was the cutest cottage only a few minutes from Charleston. It had everything we needed and was very clean. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Great cottage in Charleston

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying somewhere other than a hotel, and it was such a huge change! Staying at the cottage was about the same price (or less) than a hotel, and there is no comparison with having all the extra space, full kitchen and much more. All the other reviews are correct - we loved the space & openness in the living area & kitchen - the bedroom was big, and the walk-in closet a nice surprise. Had no need to contact John or Vance for anything during our stay. The cottage is a block off one of the main streets, not connected to other units like a condo would be (it's a separate small house of it's own). 5 minutes from downtown Charleston, close to James Island and a short drive to most anywhere near Charleston. I'd say we're probably hooked now on renting places like this for vacation when possible, rather than staying in another hotel.
