quaint and quiet

  • 5 of 5

This carriage house did not disappoint. It looks exactly like the photos, was extremely quiet inside for great sleeping, plenty of extra linens and pillows, fully stocked kitchen and very clean! The house was hot when we arrived but Victoria answered our call immediately and the house cooled without incident. Our kids loved having their own room and beds downstairs and we had the privacy upstairs. A couple of things to keep in mind. This is an older home and my husband didn't like the smell as it is musty. But in August everything it is CRAZY hot and humid so every place we went had that damp smell. Also when you arrive at dark like we did, it's a little creepy walking behind the main house to the door. The carriage house is at the back of the main house. So you walk down a narrow path behind a gate. They do have automatic lights and it was very secure. During the daylight it looks super cute and quaint, just something to keep in mind:) Like other reviews this is within walking distance of everything! washer and dryer worked great as well. Would definitely stay here again! I'll bring my husband a candle:)

Girls weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

Place was super clean and adorably decorated. Was stocked with all the amenities that we needed and the communication with our host was excellent. The only thing that needs to be addressed is the bottom window wouldn't lock and had no screen.

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!
