The real deal

  • 5 of 5

I grew up vacationing in Charleston and this is one of the nicest carriage houses I have ever seen. I've always wanted to rent one but I know it is rare to find a good one. So lucky we found yours! Thank you- we will be back.

Five Stars for our Holiday Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time. Enjoyed so much the courtyard. Great location- walkable neighborhood with beautiful homes. Big bonus was the easy parking spot. Loved the interior space of this home- well decorated and restored.

We will be back!

A PERFECT Charleston experience!

  • 5 of 5

If this place is available- book immediately and without hesitation! Location is unbeatable and the carriage house and garden are lovely. Our group most enjoyed sitting in the garden for cocktail hour before dinner reservations. This truly was a home away from home.

We love visiting Charleston and will be planning on staying at this carriage house on our next trip.

Thank you!
