Wonderful little hideaway

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the pool house for 2 nights. It was a nice little spot tucked away from the main drag. The pool was a bonus but the mosquitoes wouldn't allow us to enjoy it.... but it was nothing new for us, being from Memphis, TN. Other reviews mentioned the uncomfortable pull out mattress. I've never slept on a comfortable pull out sofa, so my expectations were such. For two nights it was fine. The parking is tight but pretty much all of Charleston is tight- so it's to be expected! We were rarely there because Charleston has so much to see but very much enjoyed our stay.

Secret garden

  • 5 of 5

My husband was very happy with the property. He stated it was like entering a secret garden! Loved the outside area. The home itself was very nice. Our only problem was the noise from the cicadas at night. I know that is nature, completely out of your control. We were pleased with the location , close enough to King Street and the historical sights.

Very comfortable and convienent location in Charleston

  • 5 of 5

What a spot! We were very impressed with the cottage. It had all of the comforts of home. The upstairs bedroom is beautiful with all of the windows. It was almost like being in a tree house! Waking up in the morning was a treat listing to the fountains in the koi pond. It was very peaceful.

The pool was an added bonus!

The location is perfect for visiting Charleston. We found several local spots to eat and drink. All, with-in walking distance. No car was needed as well. We used the free local transit (DASH) and Uber to get around.

It was a perfect spot, we couldn't of asked for a better location.

We would definitely stay there again on a return trip!!!

Beautiful, centrally-located cottage for two!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent this past weekend in Charleston for our one year anniversary and the Villa Santuario pool house was the perfect getaway! For just the two of us, the house was the perfect size, clean and charming. We wouldn't even mind returning with another couple since the top level can be closed off for privacy and there's a pull out couch down stairs. We didn't need a full kitchen, so the small hidden kitchenette area was just fine to store snacks and drinks (although we could have cooked if we wanted). We loved how the property was set back from the street, a hidden gem just blocks from great restaurants, bars and shops! The cobble stone driveway was very cute, and although the parking spot is a little tricky, the privacy is worth it! The courtyard was beautiful and we loved coming "home" to it in the evenings. We walked to our fancy dinner out on Saturday night at the Macintosh (AMAZING) and stopped for drinks upstairs at the cocktail club first (get the popcorn and order signature cocktails!). The walk to breakfast at Hominy Grill is a little further but enjoyable admiring the old and new homes along the way. Five Loaves Cafe is also along to walk and a great lunch spot! Don't miss grabbing ice cream at Jeni's on King Street and take a horse and carriage ride with Old South Carriage Company to get a historical, quick look around the city! Although the property is not right in the heart of downtown, the location couldn't be better in our opinion. It's a very short pedicab ride into the downtown area. We liked being close to the bridges and visited 3 beaches (all about a 20 minute drive) during the short weekend we were there. Check out Folly, Sullivan's Island and Isle of Palms. Thank you Villa Santuario for making our anniversary one we will remember for years to come! We hope to return because Charleston is magical!

Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This cottage house is a magnificent retreat in the heart of downtown Charleston. It is very charming, with many bright windows, a kitchenette, and very nice linens and towels. The house has a beautiful, relaxing courtyard with a pool, pond/fountain, and off-street parking. The house is within 1-2 blocks of many of the best restaurants, pubs, and bars in the city. The property manager came by to see if we had everything we needed on check in, which was a very nice touch. We loved this place and will be back.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This VRBO is located in a safe location that is close to downtown. The dedicated parking is a great benefit for the crowded downtown. The cottage is perfectly sized for a family on a short stay with great appliances (fridge, washer/dryer/wifi and small kitchen etc.) I will try to stay here again on my next trip to Charleston and highly recommend it to others.
