Cute house all to yourself, well equipped, and close to Upper King Street bars and restaurants, which has its pluses and minuses.

Best location in town!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in Charleston and can't wait to come back next Christmas. The location really allows us to explore the northern half of the peninsula and all of the amazing food opportunities the city has to offer. There were only two issues we had, however; one being the shower, which I understand is being updated, and the other is only having one small TV set in the living room. Since we were there for over a week, and it was pretty cold for Charleston standards, we did stay in more often than we normally would have, and it would have been nice to have a second TV set. Overall, it was still a wonderful Christmas week!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and in a great location. We were close to everything.

We loved it. It was a nice sitting on the porch in the morning. A quiet area. Would like to see the gate opening a little wider tho.

Great location, cute house!

  • 5 of 5

Very sweet that there was a bottle of wine waiting for us on our arrival. Lots of great restaurants nearby and about a mile or so to downtown area with even more restaurants and shopping. Also, the owner gave great recommendations for my first night I was spending solo.

Really cute little house...perfect for girls weekend.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house and especially the porch. We walked practically everywhere during the day, and most evenings too. You MUST walk a lot just to be able to eat all the food around here! LOL. Thanks for a great stay...and your graciousness. So many of the details are taken care of and it's an easy vacation. As three moms, we SO appreciate that! Highlights are the two bedrooms and the 2 bathrooms always a plus with three people.
