I wish I could be more positive, but our stay here was not good. During the time we were in Charleston (early March), the outside temps didn't get out of the 40s. Unfortunately, the inside temps didn't get out of the low 60s. On our first night, we tried raising the thermostat to 75 to see if we could coax out some heat, but although the blower (which is in an alcove in the larger bedroom behind a burlap curtain) ran all night (and made the bedroom sound like the inside of a jet), the temp never got above 63. The next day a maintenance man showed up and diagnosed a faulty thermostat. When we returned that night, there was indeed a new thermostat set to 71 but the temp in the unit was 62. The air coming out of the vents was cold, so after setting the temp to 75 again, waiting a couple of hours while the blower went nonstop, and still getting no heat, we shut the system off. By the next morning, we were down to 59 at which point management offered a full refund, which we readily accepted. Some things to note:
(1) The lights on either side of the entrance door are supposed to come on automatically at night but don't, and since this unit is located under the piazza (veranda), the entryway is dark and it's hard to see the keypad. (In fact, it's impossible at night. Bring a flashlight.)
(2) The kitchen is cute but there is no kitchen knife and no dishrag or sponge for washing dishes (although dishwashing liquid and a dish cloth for drying are provided).
(3) The bathroom is VERY small. If you try to raise your elbows while standing in the shower stall you will hit the walls before you get them fully up. The sink is lilliputian.
(4) The foldout bed in the love seat (it's not a couch) is listed as a full bed but looks more like a twin. If I sat sideways on the love seat, I could not fully extend my legs and I'm about 5' 4". It wouldn't be comfortable for an adult but would be OK for a small child.
(5) As noted by others, the floor is lovely old, old brick—very attractive but also very uneven with sharp ridges that are hard on feet. Bring well-soled slippers.
(6) St Philip Street is noisy and can be heard loudly in the large bedroom.
Finally: our calls to the rental agency never got answered on the first call. That said, they did call back fairly promptly after we left messages and they did refund our money in full for the lack of heat.
Had a great time in charleston and recommend this convenient and amazing property right off of King street. Cozy, cool, and perfect for a small family or a quick getaway
My Mom and I stayed here for 3 nights for a short vacation. The location is perfect - close to lots of restaurants and things to do. The neighborhood is nice and quiet. It was great to have off-street parking. The beds were very comfortable! The futon is not very comfortable to sit on. It would have been nice to have some furniture on the front porch and the outside light didn't work. The bathroom is a little tight, especially the shower. We loved the kitchen but there was no ice maker. It was nice to have a washer and dryer. This place is cozy and has lots of character!
Overall, my wife and I had a great stay in this home. It is so close to King St. that it is hard to beat for the price. The apt is very small and the floor is uneven throughout--as it is an old brick floor. That being said, we would most certainly stay here again.
The property was very much as described on the vrbo site. It was small but very clean and in a convenient location. However, I don't think more than four people could stay there comfortably and the futon needs to go! The floors are beautiful but my elderly parents found them difficult to walk on. Some chairs and maybe a small table would be nice on the front porch. Over all we were pleased with the property and would stay there again.
