  • Nice apartment

    "Apartment is close to waterfront, market, grocery, King St...everything! Very clean and modern in a historic building. We did not have a car and didn't need one, although parking is available at the building. The balcony with rocking chairs was nice to be able to sit and have coffee in the morning or a drink at the end of a long day. Two flights of stairs were not a problem for us, although some people might find that difficult. There are several apartments in the building but there was never an issue with noise from any of them. Elizabeth was very easy to work with and was available by text or phone throughout our stay. We had a problem with the internet when we first arrived and she came back to help resolve it. She also gave us early access to the unit and worked with us with our late departure time. One small thing...we wish she took credit cards for payment! We enjoyed our first trip to Charleston and would not hesitate to stay in this apartment again."

  • Downtown Charleston Living

    "Perfect monthly rental unit located within walking distance to the best of downtown Charleston. Very quiet yet very convenient in the middle of the historic district. For those not familiar with downtown Charleston, dedicated off-street parking at the front door that can accommodate a full size vehicle is a real plus. The cottage is very comfortable with full kitchen for those days where you want to enjoy dinner at home after a day of touring. Would also recommend the cottage for professionals in town for extended work assignments--all the comforts of home without the cramped feel of an apartment or hotel."

    "I stayed in apartment L with 3 of my girlfriends for a girls weekend in Charleston and it was the BEST experience! The apartment is perfectly located, clean & spacious. Jill is awesome, personable, friendly and was super helpful in giving us suggestions for places to go/things to do. She was more than happy to accommodate an early check-in and late check-out for us. There was even a bottle of champagne waiting for us in the fridge upon arrival :o) We were able to walk everywhere and took uber cars when necessary. Tons of shops, restaurants, bars, sites & history within walking distance (we did not rent a car for this trip and we found that we did not need one). Apartment felt like it was in a very safe area and we had no issues whatsoever. We will most definitely recommend this rental for anyone traveling to Charleston looking for a place to stay and will 110% stay here if we ever travel back down to the Charleston area!!!!!! Best girls trip EVER!"

  • Home Away from Home!!

    "I stayed in this adorable duplex for approx 5 months. It truly was my home away from home!! It was tempting to stay here indefinitely. I was traveling with my 2 four-legged children and they loved it as well. We felt completely safe. Neighbors were always friendly. Landlords were amazing!! If I ever needed anything, they were there that day or the next. Perfect location!! I took the kids for daily walks to the Old Pitt Street Bridge. I could also ride my bike to either Old Village, Sullivan's Island, or IOP. No need for a car in this location. Walking distance to Publix and many restaurants. I'm definitely returning for a much needed vacation in the future. Thank you so much!!"
