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.

Idyllic summer in Charleston

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter stayed here while attending a session of summer school at the College of Charleston. The townhouse was much bigger than she needed, but the location made it ideal. The neighborhood felt safe, and she was close to the school, a grocery store, lots of restaurants, and many historical attractions. The home was clean, well-maintained, well-appointed, and accurately reflected the description posted on VRBO. The owner of the townhouse was friendly, knowledgeable, and prompt in replying to questions. We definitely recommend this property.

My wife and I spent the mo. of June in one of the best cities in the South. This is a super place to visit and learn about the history. The shopping on King St. is very good and the Harbor and parks are very nice. The landlord was on top of everything and he gave us plenty of privacy. The place was very clean and well equipped. The locaton cann't be beat. It is in the middle of everything and was well represented by the pictures and description of the property. Looking forward to our next visit.
