Quaint and private

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Charleston very much! This property met all our needs and was close to downtown, just a $6 Uber ride away. We hope to return to Charleston again someday as there is so much to experience, and eat :)

Great feng shui & southern charm

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you step through the gate, you immediately know the joys of having your own private oasis in the middle of the bustling city. The bubbling fountain in the courtyard to enjoy morning coffee, the soothing colors of the home, the art -- we just loved it! We were able to walk everywhere, to the finest restaurants, the ferry to Ft. Sumter & aquarium, King Street, the grocery store. The owners allowed us to bring our two mid-sized dogs who enjoyed many dog-friendly amenities in the area including restaurants, dog parks and the beach. Highly recommend.

Great carriage house in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the carriage house for 2 months and loved everything about it. Comfort with all the amenities is the best way to describe it and beautifully decorated. We were within walking distance to the best of the peninsula including restaurants, shopping and sightseeing. The owners, David and Victoria were very accommodating and couldn't be nicer. We will be back! PS The fountain in the courtyard was one of our favorite features!

Wonderful property and owner!

  • 5 of 5

I had a great time staying at this property in downtown Charleston. The location is walking distance to everything (The Battery, King Street, Market Street, Ocean, etc). The carriage house is charming and clean, and has quite a bit of character. The owners are very thoughtful and kind, and went out of their way to make me feel at home. There were fresh flowers and snacks when I arrived, and they were very quick to help with any questions I had during my stay. I would definitely recommend this vacation rental!

Perfect downtown hideaway at a great price!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this charming carriage house for five weeks upon relocating to Charleston area and while looking for a permanent residence. This property is within walking distance to most all of downtown Charleston and has one off-street parking place. There's also some unregulated parking on the street which was a big plus for us due to having two cars. The property was quiet, cozy, and better than advertised. David and Victoria were very accommodating hosts and even hooked me up with an extension cord so I could charge my plugin hybrid vehicle. We would have stayed another month if the property had been available.

Quaint, well located, well appointed, a real gem

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 3 nights, did all the tourist stuff, 2 couples. The apartment is just as described, and we all really enjoyed it in every way! A couple of warnings- lots of mosquitoes around the porch and front entry, so bring your own repellant and apply before walking to the door. Victoria has some there as you enter, but by then it can be too late! Second, the mattresses are quite soft in the twin beds downstairs, only an issue if you insist on firm. Third, as stated in the ad, one car only. Street parking requires a permit after 1 hour, and the driveway is for one vehicle only.

You will not be disappointed in any way here!
