Amazing little hide-away!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited Charleston to celebrate our 29th anniversary. We were hoping to find a private, romantic little hide-away right in the thick of historic downtown. This lovely apartment completely fit the bill! We couldn’t have asked for more! The location is absolutely perfect! Located on historic King Street, the apartment itself is on the rear side of the building with a beautiful private courtyard. And because it is on the rear of the building, it is extremely quiet! The interior has been beautifully renovated, and decorated with amazing period antiques. The linens and bedding are top notch, and Ashley and Batu added so many special touches to make us feel at home. We also felt very secure, as entrance to the apartment requires passing through two locked gates.

There are so many things to love about this property! But the location is probably the best part. Wonderful shops, galleries, amazing food and night life, museums and historic sites, beautiful parks, and the City Market are all within an easy walk.

We just can’t wait to come back and spend time here again. Thank you so much, Ashley and Batu, for a wonderful, restful vacation!

Great location, well appointed Charleston apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 4 nights in late September at this lovely property. The location was absolutely perfect and it sits enough off the street to be quiet while still having everything easily accessible. We had a car, but it stayed parked at the garage around the corner the whole time we were there--you definitely don't need one. The apartment is perfect for a couple and we really appreciated the comfy king bed and nicely appointed bathroom as well as the washer/dryer and perfectly functioning air conditioning. It was warm and humid while we were there, so we didn't use the terrace space, but it would definitely be a perfect spot for a glass of wine. We didn't really use the kitchen as there are so many great places to eat in Charleston, but it looks just as pictured with nice, new appliances. The owners were very responsive to a couple of questions that we had and made sure we enjoyed our stay. We will definitely plan to stay here again the next time we're in Charleston!

Awesome Gem in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our secure first floor accommodations couldn't have been better! From the spacious and quiet living area to the private shaded patio you forget that you are in the heart of Historic Charleston! The kitchen was well stocked. The King bedroom was extremely comfortable. We walked easily to the Market and to the wide selection of restaurants thoughtfully listed by the owners. In keeping with the area the newly renovated apartment was tastefully decorated with many antiques but we never felt we were living in a museum. The listing photos do accurately describe it although it seemed larger than we expected. Thanks for sharing it with us!

Charleston Gem

  • 5 of 5

Super location in the heart of downtown Charleston. Immediate access to shopping, restaurants and attractions. Home was beautifully decorated -- the pictures are accurate -- and spotless. Though the property is located on busy King Street, it is quiet once inside. I had no trouble falling or staying asleep.

The owners were very responsive when booking and in follow-up communications regarding checking in/out and provided a generous supply of K cups. The courtyard is an added bonus -- a lovely place to sip coffee in the morning or enjoy a glass of wine in the evening.

This is a really comfortable place to stay; would highly recommend it.

Great location, nicely done home

  • 5 of 5

It was all we needed and nothing we didn't. Much better than a hotel room. We were mostly on the go, but for our time in the space it was perfect. Clean and nicely appointed. I would use again when we return.
