                                                            A chill in the air.....

                                                            Joel and Ann Marie F.Hendersonville

                                                            The Crow's Nest was conveniently located to many of Charleston's attractions. One negative of it's location is the inability to walk to the main historic district, King St or the Market area. The upstairs bedroom was comfortable with a nicely appointed bathroom. The lower level was adequately furnished with a loveseat. The kitchen had the usual appliances, although the microwave was a bit high.

                                                            We stayed the week after Christmas 2017. It was a colder than normal week. We would have enjoyed returning to the Crow's Nest and relaxing in the lower level, but that could not be. There was a single thermostat in the unit upstairs. The upper level heated nicely. The issue was with the lower level. The heat vents were located at ceiling level in the kitchen. There was no way to direct the heat down as the position of them only allowed an upward flow. Hot air does rise and that's where it went or stayed at the ceiling level. The solution would have been to rotate the vent panels over to allow for the louvers to be directed downward. We called and quickly talked to someone. We were supplied with a space heater but that was inadequate in heating up the space. One day their HVAC tech came to check the system and indicated it was operating as it should. We didn't have an issue with the system's operation and agreed to that evaluation. It was the inability of heating the lower level. It was at least 20 degrees colder than the upstairs and forced us to wear our jackets several evenings. Hopefully, the vents will be corrected but bring additional clothing if staying during the winter months as a precaution.

                                                            Fantastic historic cottage ...

                                                            Barry G.St Petersburg, Florida

                                                            A really great place to stay! ... Quirky, historic and characterful.

                                                            The property is very tastefully furnished, spotlessly clean and located in a 'real' neighbourhood,. Easy walking distance to local restaurants and pubs, dine like a local, you won't regret it!

                                                            The owners were very professional throughout the entire process ... With very clear instructions and ready to offer local recommendations etc ...

                                                            Located about a mile or so from the main historic district of Charleston, but a very easy, and interesting walk or Uber from the centre of town ... but Charleston is a visual feast, and better enjoyed on foot!

                                                            We would certainly return, and recommend The Crows Nest ...

                                                            Clean, comfortable, updated, and convenient!

                                                            Nancy d.

                                                            The Crows Nest was the perfect place to stay in Charleston. It was convenient to shopping, restaurants and highways as well as a short drive to Liberty Square and the French Quarter. The king bed was comfortable, and the updated bathroom and kitchen were lovely. The balconies were the perfect place to relax with a glass of wine or morning coffee. We would definitely stay again if visiting the Charleston area.

                                                            Very Cute and Clean

                                                            Evon k.

                                                            The rental on Spring Street, Charleston, was very cute. It was a two story with the master bedroom, bath, and full washer/dryer upstairs. The unit was impeccably clean. Bravo for that. It was located near the Medical University of South Carolina so there was a lot of student housing around. We had two poodles, and walking them was a little bit of a challenge because the green space was at a premium. However, we were able to find places once we scouted around.

                                                            It was too far to walk to the battery area. I was a little disappointed at first, but found it to be an easy ten minute car ride. Quinn was there to help us with our luggage and to acclimate us to the surroundings. The extra service was very much appreciated.

                                                            We ate at some fabulous restaurants in Charleston, The Muse and Cypress. I would recommend them especially the Muse. Their Snapper was wonderful. Grocery shopping at Harris and Teeter was a real treat. I wish we had these stores in Ohio.

                                                            I would recommend this place to others, however, not if someone has issues with stairs. They were quite steep.

                                                            We would go back there again.

                                                            Conveniently located; clean; pet friendly.

                                                            Charleston is great of course. The property is conveniently located and is perfect place to stay for a couple. There are nice restaurants in the area within walking distance. All appliances and equipment in the property worked fine. There is good parking for one vehicle (and not more). The only surprise we had with the location is the occasional medical evacuation helicopter that comes in during the night at the MUSC hospital

                                                            Clean, Open, and Inviting

                                                            Lindsay B.

                                                            The Crow's Nest property is a beautiful rental with a comfortable bed and spacious bathroom. The Kitchen has updated appliances and the location is very convenient! The only issue we had was with internet access. It was intermittent at best for the first week but the management group was very willing to work with us and the issue was resolved for the second week.
