"Like some reviewers, I almost hesitate to rate this place because it may become so popular we won't be able to return! But we had a fantastic experience, and I want other travelers to have the same opportunity.
First, the booking. Unlike many properties, the truly wonderful manager, Jill McCabe, held our reservation with a credit card, but did not charge the card until we arrived. This was a nice contrast to many VRBO properties which demand payment up front.
Second, the responsiveness. We mentioned to Jill that we would be cooking Thanksgiving dinner in the apartment, and wanted to make sure we had enough pots, pans etc. We arrived to find 2 new pans and 2 new cooking sheets in addition to the ones already there. We had a minor issue during our stay. Jill could not have been nicer about having it fixed quickly and offering a credit for our trouble. Jill promptly responded to any question or request, including returning a book my wife left in the apartment. I cannot say enough good things about her!
Third, the great space. Two substantial bedrooms, a very functional kitchen and marble bath. The chic decoration was fun, a nice contrast to the colonial style in many hotels. The water pressure was excellent. There were lots of "in case you forgot" supplies in the bath including deodorant (which I forgot), and a razor (which I also forgot).
The living room is larger than it appears in the picture. We really enjoyed spreading out a bit during our 4 day stay.
The location is choice; upper King Street is a newly chic neighborhood. Marion Square, King Street shopping, and the historic district are right outside your door. We only used the car to visit relatives in West Ashley and drive to Folly Beach.
The total price worked out to about $350.00 per night including one parking space. Our son was also able to park there when the salon was closed on Thanksgiving. An excellent value for a 2 bedroom apartment in downtown Charleston.
We are avid travelers, and this was one of our very best lodging experiences. Thanks, Jill!"
