What a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful long weekend at the Charleston Loft. This is a perfect location. Once we parked our car on arrival we did not use it again until departure. This central location allowed us to walk to everything. It is directly across from the Charleston Museum and visitor center. Arthur and Laura are delightful hosts. Staying in an 1852 home added to the historic charm of visiting Charleston.

Perfect for our stay

  • 5 of 5

The location is great! We were able to walk a short distance to everywhere we wanted to go (Aquarium, King St, waterfront park...the list goes on). The Loft is cozy but had everything we needed. Laura and Arthur were more than accommodating when our other rental fell through and made sure we got settled right away.

Perfect for a long weekend in Charleston

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a wedding and the loft was a perfect place for us. Granted, we didn't spend too much time there, but the location was perfect! Located walking distance to all of our events on and around King Street, we couldn't have asked for a better spot. We were greeted with a nice bottle of wine upon arrival, which we enjoyed a few evenings on the porch swing before our events. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Charleston! Thank you Laura and Arthur for being great hosts!

Comfortable loft with use of the outdoor space in the BEST location to downtown!

  • 5 of 5

The loft was just our style. This is a very well maintained historic building with updates for a very comfortable stay. It was very clean and the bedding was so comfy and cozy throughout our 6 day stay! It has high ceilings with lots of windows letting the sunshine in. Great a/c and quiet even though we were just a block or two from all the shops, restaurants, market etc. in Charleston! Loved hanging on the porch in the swing in the morning with coffee and omelettes we made ourselves. The owners couldn't have been more pleasant or more helpful! I'd highly recommend it and we are looking forward to returning.
