                        We went to Charleston for a week to sightsee and attend a family wedding. We selected a house so that we could relax in between activities. On the plus side, the home was in an excellent location and we could safely walk to fine restaurants and to the market place. It was very roomy and extremely clean. The master bed room and 2 bathrooms were very nice, and the bunk beds were fun for a four year old who was there for 3 nights. There were toys and DVDs there to entertain young children and room to run. The kitchen was large and had very good lighting. However, on the negative side, there was no place that 4 adults could really relax and hang out together, as the two papasan chairs and sofa bed in the living room were extremely uncomfortable and not suitable for adults. The adults spent their time in straight back dinning chairs without arms. This was not what we envisioned. The bed in the third bedroom which was used by 2 adults was extremely low to the floor and difficult to get in and out of. The light fixtures in the great room and child's bunk bed room had some burned out bulbs, and switch for the floor lamp in the child's room would not work. All of this could be overlooked, if the furniture in the living room had been appropriate for four adults. This being said, we still had a wonderful vacation. We were able to walk to do the following activities: take a carriage ride, visit the market place, shop on Queen and King streets; eat at Poogan's Porch (excellent), Bocci's, Justine's Kitchen, Elie's Table (good breakfast), Southend Brewery and Smokehouse (excellent) and Hyman's Seafood. If we had had the time we would have made reservations for Hank's Seafood. By car we visited the Bay Street Biergarten, Hominy Grill (a must), Charleston Crab House on James Island (good), toured the Charleston Tea Plantation, the Firefly Distillery at the Irvin~House Vineyards and then traveled on to see the amazing Angel Oak tree. We also visited Patriot's Point and toured the Yorktown, the destroyer and the submarine. We did a variety of activities, and it was nice to have a house located in a central location in a beautiful quiet neighborhood.

                        Recommended for: Families with young children, sightseeing, tourists without a car.

                        This house was very convenient to all shops and dining. We had a family of 6 staying here and it was a lot more comfortable than the hotel option we were considering.

                        Recommended for: Families with teenagers, age 55+, girls getaway, families with young children, tourists without a car, adventure seekers.

                        Manager response: Thank you for your review. So glad it met all your needs and that the family was comfortable!

                        Main&Main:That's the only way to describe the perfect location of this charming bungalow. While it may not be a historical home, it is modern and clean with all the appropriate conveniences. For about the cost of a luxury hotel room you and the family/friends can spread out and relax in comfort. Absolutely perfectly located to enjoy all of the tourist&local treats this town has to offer. As others have written, you need never step back into your vehicle again until it is time to head home! Considering how expensive and hard to come by parking is in this densely packed city, being able to walk everywhere is a huge benefit. Highly recommended!

                        Recommended for: Families with teenagers, age 55+, girls getaway, families with young children, sightseeing, tourists without a car, adventure seekers.

                        Manager response: We are glad that you found the home a 'home away from home'. We hope you will consider us in any future trips you may have when visiting the Low Country!

                        We had a wonderful time, the house is very well located, within minutes walking distance from King st, a block away from Colonial Lake that is great for jogging or walking. The house is one level, which makes a huge difference for families with little kids, we have three aged 6, 3 and 1 who loved playing with the toys of the house, I saw that there are also other games for older kids. The kitchen is good in size and there has a washing machine and a dryer, there is a dinning area, the backyard is also good. On Xmas Eve we had 12 people among kids and adults eating confortably in the living room and dining area. Whenever I've got to go back to Charleston I'll definetly stay there again. And Ms. Chandler was great whenever we needed her.

                        Fantastic home away from home in downtown Charleston. Close enough to the center of shops, restaurants and sights to walk everywhere, but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful. Home was better equipped and stocked than any other we have rented. 10 different kinds of soap, shampoo, lotion, etc. and even had some brand new toothbrushes available. Kitchen had everything you needed (including a dishwasher) cabinets full of spices, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, refridgerator full of condiments and various beverages. Linen closet completely full of towels (nice soft ones - not the scratchy ones you often get in hotels), and extra sheets, pillows and blankets. Games, toys and books to suit a variety of tastes. Clean and neat, but not so formal as to be uncomfortable. Lovely backyard with patio. Parking in driveway for one car (kind of skinny) and almost always another parking space on the street right out front. Listing and photos were accurate and complete with one exception. Turns out there were 3 bedrooms - not the two listed. Kids room had bunk beds plus a futon, master bedroom superb and a third bedroom as well. From the listing I thought the futon in the kids room was the last bed. Highly recommend this property; we'll definitely want to stay here next time we are back in Charleston! Best meal we had while in town was at Poogan's Porch on Queen Street. Shrimp with grits was great (and I don't like grits - usually). Low Country Bistro on South Market was OK. City Lights Cafe super for coffee and pastries. Sunday brunch at Magnolia fantastic. Our 6 year old daughter loved the jacuzzi in the master bedroom - it was tough to get her out of there. Nice that there was a separate full bath for others to use.

                        Manager response: Thank you for your wonderful review and we will look forward to having you stay here again on your next trip to Charleston! Loved your recommendations for future guests and am glad that you found the house to be comfortable ( not stuffy!) and that you found the house to be well equipped. We hope that all our guest will feel as you did, 'A home away from home'.

                        Rented this home for my cousin's bachelorette weekend and we all were extremely satisfied with our stay. The home was very spacious! When we got there Friday, I parked my car and it did not move until Sunday, everything was within walking distance! The home was very clean and quiet even though it was so close to other homes. I would definitely recommend this home to friends and keep it in mind for future stays. Thanks again for a relaxing and stressless weekend.

                        This was a great house and location for my brothers bachelor party. The 6 of us slept comfotably with a bed to each of ourselves. 5-10 minute walk to King st. The first night we were there I misplaced the key to the home. How embarissing right? I called the owner explaining the situation and she arrived within minutes to help us in the house. I would recommend this to anyone looking to have a great place and location to stay in charleston.

                        We had an excellent stay at this property this past weekend. The property was clean and had all of the amenities we needed. We were able to walk to restaurants and attractions in town - it was extremely convenient! And much nicer to have a kitchen and living area than to stay in a hotel.

                        Manager response: Glad that your stay was great! To those of you thinking of a coming to Charleston this really is in a wonderful location. Comfortable and easy to be in, this house works well for families, couples and larger groups. Also, should you need some guidance for your stay such as restaurants, tourist attractions and beaches, we are happy to accommodate!
