Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

This townhouse is nicely appointed. It has everything you need if you find you need to be away from your own home for an extended period of time. Its location is ideal for walking to many Charleston sites, restaurants, the pier, the grocery store and so much more. There is also the bonus of an off street parking space with this rental.

Idyllic summer in Charleston

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter stayed here while attending a session of summer school at the College of Charleston. The townhouse was much bigger than she needed, but the location made it ideal. The neighborhood felt safe, and she was close to the school, a grocery store, lots of restaurants, and many historical attractions. The home was clean, well-maintained, well-appointed, and accurately reflected the description posted on VRBO. The owner of the townhouse was friendly, knowledgeable, and prompt in replying to questions. We definitely recommend this property.
