Description

The space

This is a cool, clean, modern detached garage apartment in Charleston's coolest neighborhood- Avondale. Avondale has been named coolest neighborhood 3 years running by Charleston City Paper, and it's easy to see why. Walk or bike to over a dozen pubs, restaurants, shops, salons, yoga studios, etc... including Pearlz, Al di la, Triangle, The Glass Onion, Mex 1, Gene's Haufbrau, Voodoo, and The Roost, (to name a few) all just a block or so away from the apartment. We are only 3 miles to the heart of historic downtown Charleston, and only 20 minutes to Folly, Sullivan's or Isle of Palms. We are also only a few blocks from the West Ashley greenway- a local biking/walking/running path that cuts through the city. It's a great way to get your exercise in, or to get over to South Windemere shopping center to do a little eating at Med Bistro or shopping at Half Moon Outfitters. The apartment is a true studio- with no walls separating living areas, but it's charming and clean, and you can't beat the location. Fully equipped kitchen as well. This IS NOT downtown Charleston- it is just over the drawbridge from the peninsula.

You will have access to beach chairs, a beach Umbrella and a cooler if you would like. Anything else, just ask and we will try to accommodate !

We try to meet all guests face to face upon check in if possible, but occasionally leave a key under the mat if we aren't going to be around. Other than that- we don't interact with guests much unless we see each other coming and going in the driveway. Feel free to approach us with questions, but we understand how guests prefer privacy on vacation, and we try to respect this.

A car is the best way to get downtown- even though it's only a few miles a way there is no bike lane on the Ashley River bridge- so unless you are an experienced bike rider - I would drive- but once you are downtown, walking or biking is the best way to see everything. Closer to home, here in Avondale, almost everything is within walking or biking distance, and it's easy to get around that way. An uber ride downtown is $8-$10.Taxis are fairly inexpensive as well, and there is a city bus that stops a block away, but Charleston isn't known for its public transit, so I can't vouch for it. There are also water taxis that can take you to Mount Pleasant and back!

There is a tall set of stairs leading up to the apartment and the shower is pretty small.

The neighborhood

Avondale is a trendy community just outside the Charleston peninsula- about 3 miles to the heart of the Historic District. It is comprised of several modest but eclectic neighborhoods surrounding a thriving bar & restaurant scene. This is not a tourist spot so you will likely be the only tourists there! Walk to dinner, breakfast, yoga, groceries, thrift stores- you name it.

Other things to note

There is a tall set of stairs leading up to the apartment and the shower is fairly small. We did just get a dedicated wifi just for the apartment- and at last check it was running at lightning speed. You can also unplug from the wireless router and plug straight into your laptop if you need a faster, ground connection.

EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT! Perfect location, $7 Lyft downtown, can walk to some GREAT restaraunts (you have to try Pearlz & the wine & cheese bar down the street), easy drive to plantations and beach. Shannon thought of literally every single little detail. Folder full of food/activity suggestions, wine/beer in the fridge, snacks, and books! It was clean, the bed was comfy, great shower water pressure, and check in was a breeze. We came and went easily. It felt so much like home. Will definitely stay again! Brett & Shannon were wonderfully nice!!

Brett & Shannon's Place could not have been an easier spot to use as home base during our trip to Charleston. A quick drive from downtown, and a perfect simple apartment unit complete with a driveway, we highly recommend! Great value.

This was a great place to stay. They offered a lot of suggestions for things to do and places to eat close to their place; however, I spent most of my time in downtown Charleston. The location was great, and it was easy and quick to get every where I wanted to visit. Easy check in and check out.

Very cozy apartment with an incredibly comfy bed in a quiet residential neighborhood only ten minutes drive away from the peninsula. Brett & Shannon provided tons of recommendations for food and activities in the neighborhood. HIGHLY recommend.

We are an easy going couple with a spare apartment in a great neighborhood! Brett grew up in downtown Charleston, I'm from the upstate of South Carolina originally, but have been here for 20 years, so between the two of us we can give lots of tips on how to best enjoy this amazing town- and state! When we aren't in Charleston, we love to travel ourselves, once we even spent a whole month camping across Australia. On our most recent adventure to Grand Teton National Park we were chased by a curry-loving bear. Seriously.
