From Charleston, SC. In love with the water, boating, offshore fishing and an advocate for ocean creatures. Non-smoker and startup junkie.
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.
We had a lovely stay at Justin's apartment in Charleston. Justin was easy to communicate with and very helpful. He even went out of his way to get us some things the apartment was running low on and surprised us with some bottles of wine! The apartment is in a perfect location for exploring the city - very close to the markets, Meeting St, King St, and a lovely 24hr supermarket. It is clean, spacious and comfortable. We highly recommend Justin's place and would definitely stay there again!
We enjoyed our stay at Shauna's place. We appreciated their flexibility in our travel schedule and when something went wrong she fixed it right away.
What a beautiful apartment, and it is in an excellent location. My stay at Justin and Shauna's apartment could not have been nicer. It's easy to be envious of all the beautiful homes and hotels in Charleston, but not when staying at Justin and Shauna's.
As a former Charleston resident, I was a little hesitant to stay in a condo/apt building that I'd never heard of, (or seen for that matter.) However, after using (website hidden) maps to see the exact location, I thought I'd give it a whirl. The location is fantastic! Virtually every site (bar, restaurant, tourist sites, market, etc.,) is walkable from the location, and the apt is reasonable, (comparatively speaking to some dt/french quarter hotel prices.) However, the apt itself is dated and in dire need of an update/makeover; two of the drawers literally fell off when I tried to open them, and a floor board popped up when I walked across the living room. The furnishings are kinda strange (art-deco-ish and random,) but the bed was comfortable and the apt itself was clean, minus the wear and tear. The apt is pretty spacious but the leather couch/futon in the living room is so incredibly uncomfortable. that we went out and bought an air mattress to accommodate my mother. I'd definitely urge the owners to spend a couple dollars and get a legit futon. All in all it was relatively pleasant and a good option if you're on a budget. FYI- bring extra bath towels!
Wonderful digs and great location! Can't wait for a return visit.
Downtown Charleston is fairly walkable but it helped to be located right downtown at Justin & Shauna's apt. If you are staying for only a couple nights you have to stay here. Very reasonable pricing compared to hotels, quiet building and close to great restaurants and bars. My two friends and I had a great time and the place was clean and easy to check in and out!
What a nice guy to deal with. He was very friendly and left the house as clean as when he came.
