Why Lizzy Millar chose French Quarter
We are located on the SE corner of Meeting and Queen Streets, in the historic French Quarter District in downtown Charleston, SC, within what was the old walled city. The land was part of a Colonial land grant in 1695. The present building dates to 1854. It has hosted a colorful array of occupants since then, including a 19th century grocery store, billiards saloon, BBQ restaurant, liquor store, law firm, art gallery, and present-day antiques store with residences above. Free parking on adjacent parking lot during non business hours. In our family since 1968, we have transformed the second floor as a city-licensed luxury vacation rental, perfect for family reunions, group getaways, small business retreats, or wedding parties (the apartment is within 3 blocks of multiple famous churches and reception halls). We have enjoyed many years of meals, cocktails, and good conversation on the piazza, admiring the view. Now it is time to share our home as your newfound home-away-from-home

Fabulous French Quarter Five Bedroom!
My husband surprised me for my 60th birthday with a stay at this fabulous five bedroom VRBO filled with six of our best friends. Not only is this historic property perfectly located just off a main street in downtown Charleston, where shops and restaurants abound, it was so charming that we prepared a few main meals and dined in, just to savor the comfortable, spacious porch and living room, with those incredible high ceilings and picture windows! Two thumbs up!! Highly recommended.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the house and in downtown Charleston! We hope you will come back and stay again in the future!
A Beautiful Stay in Charleston
We had an amazing stay at this beautiful property. The communication leading up to our stay was excellent. The house itself is historic, lovely and in the best location. We had all the amenities we needed. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for an authentic stay in Charleston.
We had a large family group 4 couples and 2 adult children. We were in town for wedding at the Gibbs Museum, so this was a perfect location. My parents are 85 and mobility is limited, so close location was key. If anyone in your party has mobility issues they may struggle. Apartment is on the second floor and spiral staircase was challenging for my parents when they did use it. We did use the elevator at times but beware not meant for people. Small in size, so if you are claustrophobic forget it. I worried every time we used it that someone was going to get stuck. Also no lights so pitch black without the i phone flashlight. This apartment sleeps a max of 9, maybe 10 if you have children, absolutely not 12. The layout of the apartment was difficult for us, only one of the bathrooms accessible to all, the other 2 are in guest bedrooms. If you don't mind family and friends cutting through your bedroom to use the bathroom then you will be fine. Although we were made aware that supplies of toiletries would be limited, we were given 4 rolls of toilet paper, not enough for 10 guests for 4 day stay. Also not enough linen for the 10 guests. Thankfully my spouse and I brought towels to go to the beach. It may seem like a silly thing but if you are going to advertise an apartment for 12 you should have at least 12 towels. Toilet paper and towels are cheap. Staying in Charleston not so much. Also if you are going to ask us to wash the towels at the end of our stay you should leave detergent. People don't want to go shopping while on vacation, they also don't want to have to pack extra stuff.
We did enjoy our stay. The apartment is nicely furnished. Great location in town, walking distance to market, restaurants, and waterfront.
The property manager Lizzy is great. Very quick to respond to questions and concerns. Unfortunately most of the negatives are out of her control.
Best place to turn 40
This is the best place to enjoy historic Charleston!! You are just a few blocks from the waterfront and the best places to eat are just across the street. Just a few blocks from the market also! Lizzie Miller was amazing!!! She answered all of my questions very quickly and booking was no problem at all. The place is beautiful!! All the bedrooms were big and had plenty of room. The 2 1/2 baths were great for all 8 adults. The best part was the porch!!!! The light breezes on the porch meant you could stay out there all day and night. Plenty of places to sit. A huge couch and beautiful view!!! We spent most of the time on the porch!!!! We will definitely book this place again!!!
Right in the middle of everything. We had 12 people with us so as long as you don't mind sharing beds with people it's a great place to host a larger group. It was very clean and a place I definitely would recommend to any one.
Gorgeous venue in the heart of the historic district with a stunning veranda
We had the best time staying here before my wedding. This whole place comfortably fit my large family and the veranda is just perfect. We spent many nights out on the balcony late at night playing games and relaxing. The day of my wedding, all of the girls (10 total!) got ready here with plenty of space and the photos will be stunning! The location couldn’t be better— you walk downstairs to find yourself in the heart of the historic district. I was truly spoiled by my stay here— I don’t want to stay anywhere else when I visit again!
Charleston is a singularly beautiful city, with a wealth of farm-to-table restaurants and plenty to do. 120 Meeting Street sits squarely in the center of it all. Whether you've come here to sight-see, dine, wed, shop, hit the surf or get to work, you'll find that most everything is either within walking distance or a short ride away (pedicabs are a great way to get around downtown). EAT Within a few blocks of 120 Meeting Street are award-winning restaurants Sermet's Downtown, Husk, FIG, Cypress, SNOB, and McCrady's, plus laid-back favorites like "Fast & French," Minero, and Poogan's Porch. Also close by are venerable seafood eateries Hank's, Pearlz Oyster Bar, and Fleet Landing. Stock up on artisanal goodies for picnics or cocktail parties by walking to either Bull Street Gourmet or the adorable, well-curated wine and cheese shop Goat Sheep Cow. DRINK A handful of some of Charleston's finest bars are within blocks. Head to the Mezz for Charleton's finest live jazz, or to Husk Bar for creative cocktails, regional bar snacks, and a serious bourbon collection. The bars at both Cypress and McCrady's are chic and popular. Nestle into The Gin Joint on East Bay Street and let the talented bartenders surprise you. Or head to rooftop bars at Market Pavilion, the Vendue, or Restoration Hotel for spectacular skylines and sunset sipping. As for Charleston's booming craft beer scene, you don't necessarily need to visit the actual distillery (though it's fun to sign up for a Brews Cruise). Many area bars carry local suds. From 120 Meeting Street, walk over to Craftsmen Tap House for plenty of choices. PLAY Take a stroll three blocks down Queen Street to famous Waterfront Park, or head a few blocks south to marvel at palatial historic homes, a few of which are open for tours (we recommend the Nathanial Russell House and the Edmonston-Alston House). Keep your eyes peeled and your ears open for the clucking of free-range guinea fowl on lower Legare Street. Witness the heritage of Gullah sweetgrass basket weaving at the City Market, and just south of our rental (a few vendors set up on Meeting Street). Stroll down Meeting Street past Washington Park to White Point Gardens. Take a walking tour, hop in a horse-drawn carriage, or snag a spot on a sailboat. But mostly, just get out and walk. You can't go wrong. WEDDINGS Whether you are planning a Charleston wedding or attending one, 120 Meeting Street is ideally situated. You'll find scores of wedding venues less than 5 blocks away (to name a few: St. Philips, St. Michael's, First Presbyterian, Circular Congregational, First Baptist, Cathedral of St. John, Unitarian Church, St. Johns Lutheran, etc.). Engagement photos along our picturesque streets, parks, and waterfronts, are popular, too. Reception venues abound, such as the nearby Hibernian, Society Hall, Exchange Building, Mills House Ballroom, McCrady's Long Room, and countless others. FESTIVALS Charleston hosts year-round happenings, so plan your visit accordingly. 120 Meeting Street is centrally located for downtown festivals such as January's Charleston Restaurant Week, February's Southeastern Wildlife Exposition (SEWE), March's Wine + Food Festival, April's annual Tour of Houses and Gardens and Bridge Run, May's Charleston Food Film Festival, May/June's popular SPOLETO Festival, July's Palette & Palate Stroll, August's BevCon wine and spirits festival, September's Taste of Charleston, October's Annual Fall Tour of Homes & Gardens, and December's holiday decorations, shopping, and Christmas traditions. There honestly isn't a bad season or off-season for visiting the Holy City. OUTINGS You don't need a car to enjoy Charleston's downtown offerings (you can walk, rent a bike or a bicycle-built-for-two, take a pedicab, or call a Green Taxi). But if you arrive by car, opportunities await farther afield. Head to the beach (Isle of Palms, Sullivan's Island, and Folly are all roughly twenty minutes away). Visit the ancient Angel Oak on John's Island. Explore beautifully landscaped plantations (Drayton Hall, Boone Hall, Magnolia, Middleton Place). Hike through old rice fields (Caw Caw Interpretive Center) or along walkways above swampy cypress groves (Francis Marion State Forest). Rent kayaks on Shem Creek, or hire private boat companies to take you to barrier islands in search of prehistoric sharks teeth. Take a surf lesson on Folly Beach. Play a round of golf on Kiawah's jaw-dropping Ocean Course. Watch the sun set as you slurp down oysters at the iconic Bowen's Island waterfront restaurant. The possibilities are endless.
