196 Rutledge Ave One Bedroom is well located Spacious Luxury.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week at the end of July 2016 and thoroughly enjoyed this well appointed high end one bedroom unit. It's location at 196 Rutledge Ave provides the opportunity for walking distances to several well reviewed area restaurants. If you prefer to eat in, the unit comes with a spacious kitchen making it enjoyable for any chef to prepare a gourmet meal. Many things not normally found in other units like coffee, all paper products needed, and laundry detergent are provided for in this unit. Speaking of laundry, there's a good sized separate room with a stacked washer and dryer and a large table with iron to handle all you cleaning needs. You"ll be able to relax with free WiFi throughout and a nice wall mounted cable HDTV in the living and bedroom area. The bedroom provides a comfortable king sized bed for a great nights sleep. The three fans and cold A/C will keep you cool and comfortable even during the hottest of Charleston's days. The unit is in a very safe and walkable area. It's well located making it an easy short drive or cab ride to enjoy all that historical Charleston has to offer. The owner Mr. Matt is on site to provide timely assistance with whatever questions or needs that may come up, but at the same time your privacy is always respected. Parking is available off street through a small ally in the rear of the building, so you should leave your extra large vehicles at home. We are looking forward to future stays in this fairly priced vacation rental when visiting Charleston. All should enjoy staying here and we would certainly recommend this one bedroom vacation unit in Downtown Charleston at 196 Rutledge Ave.

First impression "Wow, this place is nice"

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were celebrating our 1st Wedding anniversary and wanted something "upscale" for our Charleston visit, but affordable, Matt's "apartment" was perfect- clean, modern, so much room, washer/dryer and the king sized bed was super comfy. The location was great, we brought our own bikes and unless we were going to one of the beaches, we rode or walked everywhere, so convienent to the heart of Charleston. We never felt uncomfortable in the neighborhood, a few nights we walked back from King Street after dark, never a problem. Also the neighboring houses were also very well kept up, which is not always the case outside of historic Charleston , which also makes this rental exceptional. Having your own parking space was an extra bonus, they are small, but we have a Mini Cooper, so no problem there. We were fortunate to meet Matt upon our arrival, very nice and accommodating, we will definitely be back.

Very nice place, but not for more than 2 people

  • 3 of 5

The unit was attractive, very convenient, and a good size. Our main complaint is the pull-out couch. It is a terrible sleeping surface. The mattress is extremely thin. Plus the middle leg on the bed is shorter than the front and back legs. As a result, when you lay down on the bed, it turns into a V, where the middle is lower than the head and foot. As a result, we had to stack tourist brochures under the middle leg, like it was an uneven table in a restaurant. If you are only going to use the bed in the bedroom, you will be fine. If you want a 3rd person to sleep there (no way more than 1 can sleep on the twin size pull out couch), we would not recommend this place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at our property and taking time to leave feedback. While I'm glad to know that you found it attractive and spacious, I'm sorry there was a misunderstanding about the number of guests the sleeper sofa can accommodate. We advertise in the listing that it is a twin sleeper-sofa, and state that it can accommodate "one guest". The mattress is a typical sleeper mattress which have to be a certain thickness to hide under the cushions. We love to hear from our guests, especially if we can make their stay more enjoyable. However, I did not know of this issue and did not have an opportunity to address it during your stay. It was not brought to my attention until the review was posted. Again, thank you for staying with us and best of luck with future travel accommodations.

Great condo in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying here (4 nights, 5 days). The condo was really clean and easy to find. It was great to have a parking spot that was included in our stay (unlike most hotels). Beautiful kitchen and excellent water pressure in the shower (minor detail, but really important to me!). It was about an 8-10 min. walk to Upper King to some great restaurants and entertainment - I admit we didn't walk back at night alone (after 9 p.m.), but I wouldn't do that in any city unless is was less than 5 min walk. It was great to have Hominy Grill & Fuel close by for an after-dinner drink or when it rained. It's about a 20-25 min walk to the historic district, but an enjoyable one; an uber is only about $6 to that part of town as well. Great "home base" for our trip!
