It was just PERFECT! David and Victoria were the consumate hosts. The location is ideal, quiet and the property is just so adorable and cozy; located on the back of their property with lots of privacy and outdoor space. The kitchen is stocked with more than you would ever need as you will likely eat out more often than you expect. The restaurant scene is quite wonderful...the problem is finding which places to go! One of our favorites is Sorghum & Salt- the owner/chef is so creative. If the opportunity ever arises, I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

My wife and I stayed in the Cottage for our 4 day visit to Charleston and we loved it! Thanks again!

  • 4 of 5

The Cottage was great! Cozy, quiet and convenient to everything. David and Victoria were great also. My only complaint would be that the bathroom is a little small but it really didn't bother me at all. We really enjoyed everything!

A great month in Charleston

  • 4 of 5

First, the carriage house is charming, but don’t expect luxury accommodations. What you do get is a very warm, comfortable and inviting space - with plenty of room to sit around and chat with guests or watch TV while relaxing after a fantastic day of exploring! A functional galley kitchen where you can prepare a meal – although, for a 30-day stay, the refrigerator is small. The kitchen table is perfectly sized for the space, and the HUGE windows above the table let in beautiful light. Oh, and if you have to do laundry, the washer/dryer unit was nicely hidden away in a large closet. The HVAC system was easy to use, and adjustable to your specific heating and cooling needs, with separate units upstairs and downstairs.

The second floor requires walking up a slim stairway with two turns in it, so those who are less mobile may find it a bit of a nuisance - but it also possesses a charm of its own. The bedroom is spacious with slanted walls, a nice, big window above the bed. And the king-sized memory foam mattress was very comfortable and a joy to sleep in. And the tin roof provided a wonderful sound when the occasional rains of February came down. There's also a bureau and a rustic closest for your clothing.

Now we get to the bathroom, and the only reason we didn't rate our stay as FIVE stars; it is small and requires two steps down to get into it. The sink is quite little, which makes it difficult to wash your face without also getting your feet wet. The shower has a full-size tub with excellent water pressure and temperature controls. Since we spent thirty days there, the bathroom was a pain, but for a long weekend, it may be less of an issue. However, for us, if the shower wasn’t so good, it would have been a hardship.

Outside you have a nice private parking space. You then have to go through two gates; the first through the owner’s yard, and the second lets you into your own private outdoor space. There you have a table and chairs, brick patio, electric grill and a nice little water feature. This private space is a nice bonus.

Of course, I have to mention the city of Charleston, we had a great, great time. Everything was within walking distance, and the neighborhood felt very safe!

Lastly, the owners, Victoria and David, are a delight. We liked them both very much, and they seemed genuinely concerned that we were enjoying our stay - which we were! I would be happy to go back just to see them both again.

Charleston Cottage Oasis

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I experienced our wedding anniversary in the bankshia cottage and it was pretty perfect. Beautiful clean cottage with all the southern charm that you can imagine. Owners were very friendly. Only downfall is the motion scensor light to the cottage’s path needed to be adjusted to turn on sooner before your’e out of the lights path. It would turn on after we walked down the main house’s path to the cottage, making it difficult to see where we were going. I would highly recommend staying in this location for it’s accessible to everything downtown by foot!!

Location, location, location!

This cottage is in a great location for exploring Charleston and the owner is lovely and very helpful. The cottage itself is spacious, except for the bathroom, and as my husband s 6'3" and I'm not exactly short is was a bit of a problem. The highlight though is the wonderful, quiet and secluded patio complete with a lovely fountain.
