Why Mari Wood chose Charleston

The location is ideal for a guest of the city as it is located in the middle of the historic Downtown area. Almost everything you would want to see in Historic Downtown Charleston is within 4 blocks of our location (The Battery, Waterfront Park & Pier, Exchange Building, historic mansions & churches, cobblestone streets, restaurants, bars,shopping, etc.).

What makes this studio unique

Beautiful deck overlooking Charleston's historic rooftops, modern renovation historic building dating to mid 1800's. Privacy is key as you are the only tenant of the third floor. Bikes are included for guests' exlusive use.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mari:

We are back from our wonderful week in Charleston. It was the perfect place to celebrate my birthday with family and extended family. The apartment is WONDERFUL and just as I had imagined it. The attention to detail was quite remarkable with every conceivable thing that would make one comfortable, was provided. Harriett did a great of job of cleaning for us and left the apartment spotless.

I so appreciated the time you took to address the various questions that I had and especially arranging with Kit for me to receive packages. In addition, the delivery from Goat.Cow.Cheese was wonderful and we bought all our wine from them after that first night. Both Patty and Trudy were delightful. Speaking of delightful, Danny was great! He was always in the Gallery and greeted us with a smile and some brief conversation. I cannot thank Judy enough for all that she did to make us comfortable. We especially enjoyed meeting her 2 fabulous dogs who are just so funny together.

When I realized that you lived in Charlotte, I did not expect to see you but want you to know if you and your husband are every planning a trip to Costa Rica, I would be happy to help you with your planning.

Clearly it was a wonderful experience and will highly recommend Kit’s Loft to friends.

perfect weekend trip

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had to be in Charleston for a weekend and we couldn't have picked a better spot to stay. The location was great and the apartment was spectacular. Perfect in every way. Will definitely stay there the next time we're in Charleston.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Overall, the place was exactly as described. It would be nice if they would add a stand up fan for just a little bit more added comfort. We will definitely stay again on our next trip to Charleston.

Luxurious AND Romantic Loft Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This loft was really beautifully done from the original hardwoods to the exposed brick wall and beams on the ceiling! The finishes were also really nice which reminded me of an expensive hotel that I would never be able to afford. The bathroom was really well done as well, I loved marble tiled shower, aside from the water pressure (which can't really be helped), this loft was such a pleasure to stay in. It was clean and had everything you would need if you stayed in a hotel and then a little more. The location was really perfect! It was in the French Quarter where everything happens but on the outside so you didn't get all the noise. We really enjoyed our stay!

Hidden Loft Getaway for Two

  • 5 of 5

The loft is in an ideal location in the historic district of Charleston - just a short walk from the shopping along King Street and steps away from the varied cuisines that Charleston has to offer along East Bay Street. The loft in not only clean and tidy but has all the creature comforts of a well-appointed private guest suite with the added bonus of a quaint private terrace complete with string lights, outdoor heater, fan and comfortable seating for two or more. The bathroom is small but well-appointed with pristine finishes and fixtures which in combination with the rustic heart of pine floors create a "historically modern" light and airy aesthetic! The bed was extremely comfortable and dressed in true Southern style with quality, high thread count linens. There are a few steps up to the loft but these would be easily conquered by most travelers. Typically the manager for the property would be just downstairs from the loft, except when she is away on vacation which was the case during our stay. We only encountered one issue with a "critter" very common to Charleston which we found in the room upon check in. Fortunately a kind neighbor found the nerve to squash the bug for us. Mari, the owner, responded to our messages the following morning and promptly called an exterminator to service the premises. We did not encounter another pest of any sort the remainder of our stay. I would highly recommend this property for a romantic getaway or a mother/daughter excursion.

Perfect Wedding Night Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved everything about this place! We stayed here the night of our wedding and the next night before flying off to our honeymoon. The location was PERFECT for walking to brunch downtown. It was clean, very well decorated, quiet and had everything we needed for the two nights as well as a terrace to visit with friends that came in from the west coast for the wedding. We would definitely stay here again!

Very nicely appointed loft for two people in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

The check in procedure we received via email was straight forward and easily executed. The directions to access and enter the premises and utilize the parking space were spot on! The loft was very clean; well appointed with all of the necessary accouterments; and in a perfect location as promised. We did have a few issues with an unwanted pest in the room shortly after our arrival. Since there was no staff on hand, we were forced to solicit the assistance of a neighbor to kill a giant cockroach on the carpet next to the bed that we noticed within an hour of occupying the property. Of course, this type of pest is quite common to Charleston, but the size of this particular roach was gigantic and like none other we had ever seen. My daughter and I were both traumatized with fear and unwilling to."squash" a critter of this size. Had we not encountered a neighboring renter/occupant who obviously possessed more fortitude than we did, I dare say we would most likely not have slept at all that first night. If cockroaches are not a phobia for you, then there should be no problem. Unfortunately, we are both scared to death of this type of intruder and felt helpless with the situation since there was no one to call for assistance. I texted the owner of the property immediately to reach out for assistance in resolving the issue but she did not answer until the next day. Also we had to assume responsibility during our brief stay to walk back to the property one day on short notice (while shopping several blocks away) to leave a key for an exterminator. Other than these two minor glitches (both of which were related to the same issue), I would rank the property as a stellar lodging option for two people!! Also I think the owner/property manager happened to be out of the country during our stay which could have added to the delayed response to our cries for help:). Incidentally, the pictures posted in the VRBO/Honeaway website were quite accurate.
