Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a perfect location for walking to everything we wanted to see while in Charleston. It's nicely tucked away off the street. We went for our yearly girl trip and would definitely stay here again.

The property is beautiful. The location is perfect. Walking distance from most everything.

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful. And perfectly located. Our hosts were wonderful and over the top accommodating. Everything we needed was here. There is no better way to enjoy a stay in Charleston than by staying in a 1700's home! We are already planning our return trip!

Wonderful Stay! Great Location!

Enjoyed our stay at the Kitchen House. Everything was very clean and the location was better than expected. We walked everywhere and loved all the history in the immediate area.

THE perfect Charleston rental

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this property. We've now stayed in the Carriage House and the Kitchen House. They really couldn't be better.

For this stay, we were in Charleston for our son's wedding. This home was located steps away from the venues for the wedding itself, the reception, and the rehearsal dinner. There is plenty of good air conditioning in this unit, which is not always the case in historic Charleston homes.

We love this property for several reasons. First, the location is ideal. The home is at the center of all of the historic sites in Charleston, but just far enough away from the craziness of the most touristy areas. It's quiet because it sits next to Washington Park.

Second, the units are furnished beautifully and comfortably. Both were immaculately clean. The beds are very comfortable and are made with high quality linens. The towels are thick and fluffy. Toiletries are provided, and are high quality. The dishwasher is a new, quiet, high end model... I could go on and on.

Last, Ruthie and her mother are sweethearts. These units are attached to their historic family home. If you need anything at all, they're there for you. The family was so excited for us about our wedding.

On an unrelated note, if you're looking for a walking tour, you won't go wrong with Two Sisters Tours. It leaves from Washington Park.

We look forward to staying here again in the future!

Beautiful home in downtown Charleston

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this charming home that has kept with the look of the 1700s with updated amenities. A cozy home right in the heart of downtown within walking distance of many delicious restaurants and great places to see, right next to beautiful Washington Park. Very welcoming family! Highly recommend this place to stay when visiting Charleston!
