Lovely accommodations in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We visit Charleston regularly, and this was our fifth vacation rental in the city through VRBO -- and our favorite by far. The kitchen house has been beautifully rehabilitated for residential use, keeping historic features intact while providing all of the necessary modern conveniences. It is clean, comfortable, and charming. And the location is within easy walking distance of many restaurants, shops, and places visitors want to see in Charleston. The welcoming owners, though, may be this vacation rental's best feature. We've booked accommodations through VRBO in several states and one foreign country, and this is the only rental where the owners not only were available for help if needed but made a point of interacting with their guests. True Southern hospitality!

Lovely renovated space

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed the kitchen house. The owners were lovely and very welcoming of our child. They left us a bottle of champagne and some other treats! The place felt private because it is behind the main house, yet it was easy to walk everywhere. The space was nicely decorated and I loved the old brick. FYI, the stairs are steep and might be problematic for someone elderly (or toddlers). We would stay here again - I loved the mix of luxury and history and friendliness.
