This was the perfect "home base" for a recent trip to Charleston for a friend's wedding. Josh's condo is in the heart of a very cool neighborhood and within walking distance to 3 or 4 AWESOME restaurants (he will send you recommendations). If you prefer to do some shopping on historic King Street, it is a bit longer of a walk (though still totally doable) or literally a $4 Uber ride. Location can't be beat.
The unit itself is very cool. Tastefully decorated and super comfortable.
Lastly, as a host Josh could not have been easier to work with. He was incredibly responsive prior to our stay and had everything perfect for our arrival. We did have a minor incident on our second night (a crying puppy above us was keeping us up), but despite being in another country when I texted him, Josh quickly remedied the situation for us by contacting the neighbor and even offered us a refund for a portion of our visit.
If I ever return to Charleston this is where I will stay.
Strongly recommend this welcoming apartment. It has been stylishly decorated providing comfortable and warm accommodation. It's located in an interesting part of town packed with innovative restaurants and just a gentle stroll to the historic district.
Prior to our visit, Josh sent a very nice and thorough email with details of his place and restaurants we should try. Not much contact during our stay, but we felt he would be available if needed. Nice apartment in a great location. A good walk to the "action" but so much going in this neighborhood, that we hardly felt the need to leave. My only complaint would be the noise of the neighbors above us. We could hear every footstep and bed creak throughout the night. Overall, a great visit to Charleston.
How wonderful to be so close to King Street and other favorite spots off of Rutledge. Thank you Josh for your upbeat candor, your love of oysters and comfortable beds!
Our Charleston rental was perfect! I loved the location a little off the main drag and an easy walk to all the coolest restaurants in town. The apartment was clean, cozy and even cuter in person. We would stay here again in a heart beat!
I agree with all of the other positive reviews so I'll provide some more detail for folks who are looking for more details.
- I have a really high bar for cleanliness. Josh's place was very clean and well organized.
- There are two bedrooms on either end of a hallway with the bathroom and kitchen / living area in between. The kitchen has an open breakfast bar like window to the living room. The apartment is big by NYC standards.
- The central heating worked well, particularly so we could turn it down/off since it was unseasonably warm in December.
- There are helpful appliances like a 12 cup coffee maker, an in-unit washer and dryer, and a dishwasher. The linens and towels are higher quality and I felt comfortable using them. (I had brought my own just in case and didn't need them.)
- The porch has a nice glass-top table and 5 chairs (perfect for morning coffee).
- The apt is about 15 min walking from downtown (20 if strolling) and is both close to downtown but not in the middle of the touristy areas.
All in all, it was a lovely place for two couples to spend new year's eve.
Josh was responsive, accommodating and informative. His restaurant recommendations led us to a charming, hidden away little bistro that we would not have discovered on our own. We loved the neighborhood - walkable to everything but well out of the "tourist zone."
