About Kira Golub

A total renovation on a beautiful historic home and carriage house that sat empty for years. With months of work and lots of love the carriage house has become a nice little get away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful stay we had down in Charleston in early March. The bottle of wine was a perfect touch as we entered the cottage. Thank you so much for that. Your place is perfect for relaxing at night after busy days of sightseeing in your beautiful city. The accomodations were perfect for Jeff and I along with my mom. We certainly enjoyed many of your suggestions for restaurants, sites to see and just places to walk. Your friendliness made us right at home. Thank you again for your hospitality.

p.s. we've told our friends and family about this wonderful experience!

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful and private house. My family stayed there for the eclipse and couldn't have been happier with our accommodations. Very clean and well maintained. Beds were very comfortable. AC was fantastic because it was ridiculously hot. We couldn't wait to get back to our "home" after walking around the city! We did tough out the heat to have some wine and play dice on the back patio, very quiet and serene. I highly recommend this VRBO.

Bring your own hangers. Bring your own pillows. Maybe tools too

  • 2 of 5

Couldn't get in the lock box when we arrived. Couldn't get owner on phone. Called vrbo and went from VM HELL TO ON HOLD. Sitting in the sun on the steps. Storm threatening and all of our luggage exposed on porch.

This is a pretty property in a great location. And obviously the owners put a bit of money in the renovation. They should think a bit more about basic comfort and safety and being a bit more available when they know they have a checkin.

And? The toilet seat should not have been on the verge of falling off when we arrived.

Folks should be warned the the handle on the kettle becomes red hot when water is heating.

Information on sheet is incorrect.

And I could go on

On a personal note ? I loved visiting Cuba too but I wouldn't be putting my photos up in beach lodgings in Florida? And they really seem strange in Charleston

And btw. No I do not what your app on my phone so you can harass the hell out of me with emails and ads. And no I will not recommend VRBO to anyone at this point.

Perfect house & location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Carriage House!!! It is a lovely house tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the Charleston streets. It was quiet and had everything we could ask for. We were able to walk to almost everything we wanted. It's just a little over a block to King Street where there is everything - shopping, restaurants, bars - and less than a block to the Charleston visitor's center. Loved the house and will definitely book again!!

Good location, spacious & clean

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay and Kira and Dewey were helpful and accommodating. Would stay here again. Their property was a relaxing homebase in an ideal spot to explore all parts of Charleston but within walking distance to shops, farmers market, etc. only one very minor request-but for those of us who like to cook, the kitchen could benefit from some new pans, knives, and large serving dishes as the ones there have gotten quite a bit of use and the kitchen is fun to cook in !

Cozy cottage. Great location. Easy walking to downtown areas. All three shuttle routes pickup nearby

  • 4 of 5

Home is nicely remodeled. High end appliances and furnishings yet has antique charm. Old wood flooring and beds creak. Don't try to sneak.

Perfect Charleston Getaway Cottage

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing weekend. Our friends from Clearwater met us in Charleston. We live in Asheville, so it was a nice somewhat in-between spot, plus we were all celebrating our 30th anniversaries. The location was perfect and walking distance to everything...sites, restaurants, Saturday morning market, etc. The cottage was so clean and a great size for two couples. It was nice having the living area and kitchen for morning breakfast and socializing at night. It had all the kitchen amenities anyone could need and also had bikes available. We will definitely come again! Kira was wonderful and gave us recommendations for restaurants and sites to see. We've been renting homes from VRBO for about 10 years and this is one of the best homes we've rented yet!
