Perfect location within walking distance of King Street shopping, many great restaurants and the historic Dockstreet Theater. There are also a couple of nice breakfast places with in 4- 5 minute walk. The apartment is very nicely decorated and very very clean. Melissa, the owner was also very helpful with suggestions for local restaurants, etc. Off street parking was provided which is a must. We had a great time!!!

Charming and accessible

  • 5 of 5

9 West Street was a delight and we very much appreciated the care and taste that the owners took in decorating and equipping the apartment. Parking was a little tight for our van but manageable (and FREE). Walking to virtually anywhere in the Historic area was easy and fun. Many thanks to Melissa and Rick for providing a warm and comfortable alternative to hotel life. We will be back! Bob & Pam

Charming accommodation

  • 4 of 5

This is a quaint beautifully decorated 1 bedroom apartment ideally situated in historic Charleston. The kitchen and bathroom are ‘tight’ - 1 person at a time, but it was not a big issue to us. The apartment is quiet and has the added advantage of a car space. You can walk to most historic places or even arrange bike hire as the area is flat with wide streets. A beautiful part of the states.
