Kirk's home is exceptional, and I highly recommend to anyone visiting Charleston. It is centrally located in the historic district, within easy walking distance to everything. Every room is spacious and well appointed. The home was spotlessly clean, both beds are very comfortable, and the full kitchen has every appliance and utensil one could need. We found Kirk to be wonderfully friendly, easy to communicate with, and were especially appreciative of his excellent recommendations of where to eat, and what to see. We will definitely stay here again.

Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

This townhouse is nicely appointed. It has everything you need if you find you need to be away from your own home for an extended period of time. Its location is ideal for walking to many Charleston sites, restaurants, the pier, the grocery store and so much more. There is also the bonus of an off street parking space with this rental.
