From Charleston, SC. In love with the water, boating, offshore fishing and an advocate for ocean creatures. Non-smoker and startup junkie.
This apartment was in a great location and very convenient. It has a nice porch and is walking distance to everything in the heart of town. Good well equipped kitchen which we enjoyed. Not a large space but very comfortable and functional. Communal washing machines worked well too. Pool was closed during winter season.
Fantastic Location! It's a short walk to the grocery store, cruise ships, shops, carriage tours, and best restaurants. Check-in and out was easy and we had everything we needed and then some.
The location of this apartment was excellent. We loved being able to walk everywhere. We also loved being so close to an excellent 24hr grocery store, Harris Teeter.
We found several excellent meals within walking distance, including FIG, Jestine's Kitchen (excellent fried chicken), Monza, and Trattoria Lucca ( this is the only restaurant we drove to).
Others have noted that this wasn't a great apartment, but we found it perfectly acceptable. For the cost compared to hotels in the area you can't do better. Besides we didn't spend much time in the apartment as the whole point of going to Charleston was to see the city.
The apartment did have a strange assortment of furniture but that was part of the charm.
The Heart of Downtown is perfect for a couple who wish to be near the restaurants, shopping, Market, and Historic District. The apartment is quite comfortable and convenient. The hosts are helpful and great sources of information,
we will stay again.
Although we started our stay at Justin and Shauna with some anxieties, eventually it became a wonderful place to stay at: a pleasantly decorated one bedroom condo with a kitchen well equipped AND located at an ideal place in Charleston. We hardly used the car that was parked in its own parking spot - except to go grocery shopping, which turns out super easy.. since it was two blocks up the road (no need for the car!!).
Fantastic location. Great hosts. Lovely condo
the apartment was nicely decorated, had 2 nice tv's, wifi. was quite roomy (i stayed there alone) and i appreciated that the kitchen had all the utensils and dinnerware needed if one cared to cook which i did on various occasions during my 2 week stay.
i thought the price for the place was a bit high since it was really off season but it seems charleston has become very popular nowadays. i've been visiting the city for the past 5 years and really love it.
the apartment hallways seem a bit run down but it's my understanding that they are to be renovated in near future.
the apartment was right in the center of town and it was easy for me to get to all the places i was interested in going to. there is good security in terms of access to building is through a code system.
i would say, however, that a new mattress is about due since the one there is a bit lumpy and saggy, definitely not firm enough (the left side in particular).
i never met shauna or justin but did communicate with shauna via email before arriving and twice by phone (it took her a couple of days to get back to me on two of the 3 occasions i called) but she did email me eventually with info i'd requested.
if the mattress were replaced, i'd definitely stay there again, especially if the prices were a bit more reasonable. i did, however, enjoy my stay there.
Perfect location, great hosts, spacious apartment. Complex could use a little TLC, but definitely worthwhile overall!
Location was great, the place had plenty of space and was clean and inviting. Appreciated the free wifi and also Justin's quick response time when us airbnb newbs didn't know instructions to get into the apartment were in the itinerary.All in all a really good experience and would probably use again in Charleston.
Also, Charleston rocks.
Location, location, location! Comfortable 3 room flat with large walk in closet a block from Market St., safe parking and no hassle check in and out. We would repeat.
What a nice guy to deal with. He was very friendly and left the house as clean as when he came.
