Guestbook comments from the manager

Great location - parked my car in driveway and walked to where I wanted all weekend. It was a very comfortable modern space with everything I needed. 227D was so quiet and relaxing and better than I ever expected. I hated to leave, but hope to get back someday and will recommend to my friends.

Wonderful weekend!

  • 4 of 5

The garage apartment was clean, neat and well-equipped for our stay. We had a perfect weekend! Would definitely stay again. We walked and rode our bikes everywhere. We felt welcomed and loved our visit!

Great place to lay your head after being out all day, but studio needs to touched up a bit.

  • 3 of 5

Although we suspected parking would be an issue, we ended up putting our rental in a Garage 15 mins away on St Philip St. so we wouldn't have to jockey cars with other guests or worry about being summonsed on the street. We are city people, so we understand...but clearer options would have helped us out a little more. Great location - quiet & secluded. The studio was great and well air conditioned...shower needs a bit of an update as does the cable reception. All in all, good location to stay for a quick visit.

Owner's Response: Hey John, Thank you so much for choosing Walk Away Stays and I hope you enjoyed your time in Charleston. I apologize that you feel you didn't get good instruction on where to park. We would have been happy to direct you to a parking garage, so sorry about that! I will speak with the owner about updating the shower (we don't stay in the units so hearing feedback is VERY helpful) and I will have someone go look at the cable reception now. Thanks again for staying with us and for providing us with your feedback. Hopefully we can host you next time you visit Charleston!

Rocky start, great trip

  • 3 of 5

The place was great- very clean, small, but everything we needed. Fabulous outdoor space as well.

Major downside- the room was not ready when we arrived and we had to stay in another carriage house we had not booked for the first night. Lots of moving around and Home Away Stays was not at all accommodating in helping us transition.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review and feedback. I would like to first apologize that this inconvenience happened during your vacation. We unfortunately did have a scheduling error during your stay that caused the unit to not be available for the 1st night of your stay. We caught the error prior to your arrival and wanted to make the transition as smooth as possible. We had someone checking into the unit that we had you in the first night the day that you were moving. We called you as soon as your unit was available to check into and tried to get you moved over as quickly and as seamlessly as possible. We also, for your troubles, did offer you a refund for one night of your stay. I am so sorry that you did not feel like we were accommodating for the transition but we did call as soon as the other unit became available and we refunded you 1 night of your stay. I hope that you were able to enjoy your time in Charleston. Thanks and please let us know if we can help you out with any future stays in Charleston!

Functional accommodations, adequate for those interested in being close to city.

  • 2 of 5

The unit is small, but well appointed and equipped. The location is central to many points of interest in the city, but the parking is less than desirable.

We did see a cockroach, which put me on edge the remainder of our stay, although we never saw another.

Another point that might bother some, as it did me, was the air filter had some artificial freshener that gave me a headache.

Lastly, be sure to read the fine print regarding charges. We failed to tally all the incidentals before booking and that, coupled with VRBO charges, caused the rate to be double the advertised rate.

very nice, local experience

  • 4 of 5

Location and amenities were as expected. The house itself was very conveniently located, updated, clean and nice for us. Great local restaurants close by, super friendly neighborhood at every place we went to for meals, or drinks. The parking situation was not well explained. We had to ask one of the other guests and rifle thru the info in the house to figure it out. There was no parking pass for the car window to allow for street parking as was noted in the instructions we found in the house. It worked out for us because we walked everywhere, even in the rain, but I could see the parking being a challenge for some. I found it curious that there'd be a non-refundable cleaning fee, no daily cleaning service (although not needed for us), yet an expectation to tip for cleaning services.

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed your stay and got familiar with the neighborhood, we love it too! As for the parking, we understand that the shared driveway arrangement can be confusing to people at first, it is unusual for anywhere EXCEPT Charleston. It's just one of the quirks of the city and off-street parking is a HUGE perk here for many reasons, largely because it's free when you stay with us!

Great location

  • 2 of 5

The location for this area was great. I thought the studio was cute, but there were a few "issues" that will cause me not to stay here in the future. The water pressure in the bathroom sink was pretty much non existent and water trickled out. I ended up having to use the kitchen sink. The outlets in the bathroom did not work. I am five six and 125 lbs and the shower was too small for me. Imagine how my husband felt at six foot three. haha. There was no remote to turn the TV off and on so we had to manually turn it off and on. I noticed a few spots on the comforter and loveseat and there were tiny spiders crawling in various places. Cute concept, but definitely not for me in the future.
