Just as expected!

  • 5 of 5
The carriage house was perfect! We parked our car and never got back in it. The neighborhood is not quite there yet, but you can see it is up and coming. If you don't mind walking you can pretty much walk everywhere in the downtown/historic area. We couldn't have had a better time and our dog enjoyed his stay too! Great place--we would definitely stay here again!

Nice place, manager unresponsive

  • 3 of 5
The accommodation was as described, although neighborhood not as nice as we'd hoped. Only complaint was with manager unresponsiveness to wifi problems - directions for connecting were wrong, and only one person can connect at a time.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest,
As noted in all of our 5 star reviews, our response time is within one hour. We take pride in our attention to guests' needs and have no fewer than 4 points of contact with each guest prior to and during their stay. We are available 24-7. You received our check in letter 3 weeks prior to your arrival and also spoke to us afterwards saying, "everything looks great; we have everything we need." You called two more times and left copious voice messages trying to sell our management company on your services for the new tourism company you started in attempt to get our business. As you explained in your multiple voicemails to our staff, you are a former employee of VRBO, and you have your own business which you are trying to promote. While we wish you all the best in your new endeavors we cannot engage in business with our guests. This would create a conflict of interest. Not only did we field your sales calls but we spoke to you directly on the telephone and provided you the wi fi password for a second time explaining it is the 16 digit code on the modem and is listed on two separate manuals in the home as well as in your check in letter. We have never had issues prior to this with any guest regarding the password. You were able to get online after we spoke and as evidenced in our wi fi plan were able to use many hours worth of the internet and wi fi. Our goal is to provide our guests with a clean, welcoming home and provide excellent customer service which 99.9% of our reviews reflect. Our home is located in a charming Charleston neighborhood surrounded by yoga studios, bakeries, boutiques, bars and restaurants frequented by locals. Spring Street and Cannon Street are in our desirable "Spring/Cannon" corridor near MUSC and close to both beaches as well as walking distance to our Upper King Street Restaurant District. We are proud of our home, location and service and wish you all the best in your new business!
Sincerely,
Management

Ideal crash pad for your Charleston getaway!

  • 5 of 5
The carriage house was beautifully decorated and super clean. The kitchen has what you need and even some things you would not expect. The bathroom is huge with a really nice shower and lots of comfy towels. The bedrooms are very large with plenty of closet space. Yes, the living room is on the small side as is the TV, but we never turned on the TV and why would you hang around inside the house with so much to do right outside the door? I often stay in hotels or other apartments closer to King Street but the prices there have just become outrageous. You get so much more for your money in a place like this. It’s a bit of a walk to upper King but Uber is only $5. FYI when you summon Uber don’t use GPS unless you walk out to the street first. Type in the address or they will never find you! I drive an SUV and had zero trouble negotiating the driveway and parking was not a problem at all. No neighbor issues either…they were quiet and respectful. If you want a great place to stay in Charleston and get the best value this is definitely the place to be!

This is a great rental. So comfortable, clean, exactly as advertised. Maybe even better. I loved the location. We were able to walk dinner on King Street. Many small markets nearby for groceries but we took advantage of the grocery concierge. Hope to stay here again soon.

We had a wonderful stay at the carriage house. It was nice and neat and had everything we needed in the house. We weren't too sure about the neighborhood when we arrived, but it was fine. We thought it was a little to far to walk to the Market area. Maybe if the weather were a little warmer... Anyway, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this cottage.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at the carriage house and that you found everything that you needed to relax. The neighborhood is definitely on an up-swing, with frequent restaurant and retail openings. It has become a true extension of the expanding upper King St scene, so we hope guests are able to view the location in that context and enjoy what this neighborhood now has to offer.

We understand that visitors enjoy exploring the Market area as well and try to advise them on walking distance. It can be a great walk on a nice day, but for colder months or for nights out, an Uber cab is a great option if traveling without a car.

Thank you for your valuable feedback and recommendation!

Carriage House

  • 5 of 5
The carriage house was exactly as advertised. The carriage house is a bit challenging to find at first, but once we arrived everything was fantastic. Everything is provided for you (towels, sheets, etc.) which is great. The pictures are true to what you get, we really enjoyed the style. One thing to note, the second bedroom is on the second floor which is accessible only by a fairly tight set of spiral stairs. This was not a problem for us, but should be considered.

The location is great and convenient to all of that downtown Charleston has to offer. The neighborhood itself would best be described as "up and coming", but we felt very safe during our stay. We chose to use Uber for most of the getting around, but if you don't mind walking you can pretty much walk everywhere in the downtown area in less than 20 minutes or so.

We couldn't have had a better time and would definitely stay here again!
