Great quaint place, with charm and fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Genee has a gem of a rental, located right in the French Quarter within walking distance to everything. The apartment is very clean, well kept, and quiet. Genee was a great host, working with us on the check in/out and anything we needed.

Great location, but...

  • 3 of 5

A very cute unit steps away fro the waterfront, yet nestled away from the crowds. However, there are a few things that detract from the appeal and comfort of the apartment, Namely, the size of the bathroom. It is so ridiculously small that there is no room to even put any toiletries or anything on the counter-because there is no counter. Additionally, there is no hot water to the bathroom sink. In checking, there is only a cold water line plumbed to the sink, so I had to wash my face in the kitchen. There isn't even a towel bar or hook in the bathroom to hang a towel for drying your hands. I felt very exposed with the lack of a shade on the glass front door and the adjacent full glass panel-direct view into the sofa we used to sleep on in the living room.

Great property. Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were clean, comfortable and just what wanted. Nice living area with a very nice kitchen. Great Bedroom that could be closed off by doors from the living area. Quiet but close to everything.

Great location, beautifully decorated

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location in historic downtown, steps to waterfront, restaurants and shops.

Absolutely beautiful decorations and incredibly clean.

Some cooking essentials (pots, frying pan, bowls, etc) would make the gorgeous kitchen an option for at-home meals.

Genee and John were fantastic hosts. We were in town to celebrate a New Year's Even wedding and could not have enjoyed out time more. Beautiful apartment, charming cobble stone drive, and even the sight of a Darius Rucker video!!!! I really hope this spot is available next time I am back in Charleston, SC!!!
