Great Vacation Rental

This cozy cottage had all the amenities and was very close to everything in downtown Charleston. We enjoyed it very much and would recommend it to anyone visiting Charleston.

Just returned from a four day stay in this wonderful cottage. It is in the perfect location, just a short walk to all the major downtown attractions and restaurants. The house was the perfect size for our family of three. All the furnishings were clean and comfortable. Loved the fact that we had a dishwasher and washer/dryer. The parking space was quite tight, but manageable for our mid-size SUV. The only regret of this vacation is the fact couldn't stay longer.

Quaint Charleston Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is absolutely adorable and has everything you need, including a washer, dryer, and dishwasher. It is perfectly located... we could walk everywhere we wanted to go for shopping, eating, and going out at night. Friendly neighbors even pointed us in the direction of a free concert while we were there! Claudia, the owner, is so friendly and accommodating. She was very easy to get ahold of if we had any questions. We drove a minivan and the famous parking spot fit like a glove. We loved our stay in Charleston and we would stay here again in a heartbeat!

A Sanctuary in Downtown Charleston

  • 5 of 5
My month-long writing retreat at this home could not have been more perfect. Situated close to everything downtown I needed and wanted, I walked most everywhere. Used my car only three times! There are wonderful restaurants, coffee shops, stores, museums, theaters, galleries, and college just a few blocks away. This home provided a quiet, clean, comfortable space to relax, write, or plan excursions around the city. The kitchen is well stocked to cook the great finds at the farmers market, or store leftovers from delicious meals out. Whether you want to have morning tea and do some journaling outside on the patio table, or sit with a glass of wine and watch the evening news, or take a nap between long walks to the bay, parks and lake, this is the place. The rooms are well appointed, cozy, fun. I felt safe walking to and from the house on the one lane road. The property caretaker was fabulous, available, helpful, welcoming. And most days, you'll hear the occasional horse-drawn carriage clop-clopping along, and you will imagine the people riding in being jealous of you waving from your front door. I have already recommended it to friends.

Two Couple Visit

  • 5 of 5
Nice cottage for two couples. Having the separate bedroom en suite made it comfortable and gave both couples their needed space and privacy. Good furnishings, equipment, supplies, location great for walking to the main sites.. Staff Bradley very helpful. Parking was dicey -- narrow, space, hard to enter. I was careful, but not careful enough.

Cozy and Beautiful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just left this beautiful home today after a 4 night stay for our honeymoon. The house is located perfectly in proximity with downtown Charleston restaurants and other attractions. It was quiet, quaint, and gorgeous. Claudia was very thorough leading up to our stay with payment information, details and rules regarding the house, and any other questions we had. Bradley met us upon arrival and was extremely nice and helpful. He showed us all the good places to eat and some other attraction locations. Dell'z was delicious!! My wife and I were also met with some congratulatory flowers for our wedding which was extremely kind and thoughtful!

We definitely hope to stay at this cottage again when we return to Charleston. It was a wonderful experience. We highly recommend this cottage!! Thank you again Claudia and Bradley! Take care!
