  • We stayed in Paula's condo for 2 nights while visiting Charleston and could not have been happier with the accommodations. Paula made us feel at home with her southern hospitality and we loved that she had a big basket of Charleston travel guides on the coffee table. We referred to them a lot during our stay! Her 2 bedroom home was super clean, quiet, and comfortable and the 5 minute drive to Charleston was a snap. Another benefit to us was the parking situation.....we could park the car steps from the condo which we loved.

    Response from Paula:

    so glad y'all enjoyed your stay!

  • The condo was comfortable & well equipped. It was a short, easy drive into Historic downtown Charleston. There is bus service into the city with a stop right at the corner, but the bus only runs every 55 minutes so you have to coordinate going into town with the schedule. The bus often runs late & once we had to wait 25 minutes past the scheduled time returning to the condo from town and once it left downtown 5 minutes early. Buses don't run late in the evening.
    There are 2 good grocery stores less than a mile away. We walked to both before we picked up our rental car. Earth Fare, a whole foods grocery store & Harris Teeters where you can save money by signing up for one of their members cards. There is also some restaurants, bars & cafes near the grocery stores.

    We loved Charleston and Paula's condo made visiting the city more affordable than paying for a place downtown. Paula kept in touch & sent us some groupon discount offers well in advance of our visit. It was great that she has Netflix as an alternative to cable TV. My wife was appreciative of the slippers provided.

  • Truly a lovely and convenient place to call home while visiting Charleston!

    The rental is super clean and every bit at nice as the photos suggest, and stocked with many little extras that rentals don't usually provide, like ample paper products, coffee filters, quality hand soaps, bathroom air freshener, beach towels, quality linens, soft throws, even little slipper socks, really welcoming touches : )

    Excellent place at a great price. It really is an easy 10 minute drive to the heart of the city and a pleasant 20 minute drive to beautiful beaches.

    If you perfect trip includes great restaurants don't forget to make dining reservations prior to your trip, many of the best spots book up well in advance.

    The only imperfect part of our experience was the noise from an inconsiderate upstairs neighbor. I sleep very lightly. The white noise machine I brought with me was no match for the TV noise that began at 6 am on a Saturday morning. It was a minor wrinkle in an otherwise outstanding weekend.

    Thank you Paula & Hannah!

  • Paula and her daughter Hannah were great hosts - very responsive to questions. And the apartment itself was great! Really comfortable for 2 couples. Bedrooms were huge and the whole place is decorated in an adorable fashion. Easy parking and a quick trip over the river to downtown Charleston. It was really the perfect place for our stay! Thanks!

  • Paula was true to her word! Her apartment is a few minutes away from everything you need it to be. The place is spotless and quaint. Paula is a fabulous hostess who makes you feel right at home with her Southern charm and hospitality. I would highly recommend staying at Paula's place. Definitely worth a repeat visit.

About
I am a Charleston native.... our family enjoys trips to NYC and we are always up for a cruise! My favorite things to do are shop for vintage goods and remodel homes.....sometimes one supports the other!!! Airbnb has been a great experience for me! I love sharing the great city of Charleston with everyone.... I've been bringing friends here since I went off to college in the 70's;) When we travel, we hope for a "real experience". How cool is it to stay among the locals and enjoy it all in your HOME away from home?
