Great property. Very fitting for the city visit. Great host. Girls loved the hosts dog Sierra

  • 5 of 5

The carriage house is very quaint and minimalistic. The decor allows for a comfortable stay while still obtaining the experience of the history behind the structure. The location is perfect to walk to nearby shops and restaurants, as well as a convenient to drive to nearby plantations, piers, and gardens.

The real deal

I grew up vacationing in Charleston and this is one of the nicest carriage houses I have ever seen. I've always wanted to rent one but I know it is rare to find a good one. So lucky we found yours! Thank you- we will be back.
