Recent Charleston vacation rental reviews

Everything was beautiful and well done. Loved the space. Only thing was there was only 1 extra roll of toilet paper and they were skimpy at best. Had to buy more. Kinda crazy when we paid almost $500 a night. But we really did love it. Will be back.

While it was only my wife and I staying, the house is comfortable for four people. Plenty of closet space and each bedroom has its own bathroom. The kitchen has good counter space and the large table will seat four. The living room is spacious and comfortable. Getting into town or West Ashley or onto James Island is very easy although traffic issues will occasionally be a problem. Maybank Highway is one of only two access points for Johns Island and we learned to leave early for any appointment or reservation if it was in the morning or evening commuter hours. Okay, the noise from the 4-lane elevated bridge/55mph-highway that is a couple hundred yards from the house has to be mentioned. While hidden from view by trees and houses, it is ever present when out on the decks or even at times in the house if you have the doors open. You cannot escape it. While it sometimes slips into the background it just as equally invades your head. The tradeoff to having easy and quick access to Maybank Highway is it’s constant audible presence when you are on the decks. You can stand and enjoy the marsh and sunset views from the deck off the master bedroom although there is no outdoor furniture except one folding metal chair. On the other hand the screened deck on the main floor is very comfortable and has seating for four people though the view is through screen and posts. The glassware and cookware is completely adequate but could also be described as spartan. Something above adequate is always appreciated especially in a month long rental where you are more likely to be preparing many of your own meals. If there are more than two people you will probably be doing dishes more often than anticipated in order to get clean cookware, glasses, and cups. We used a glass pie plate to bake enchiladas, which I thought was quite resourceful, but I’d rather have a good inventory of cookware so I didn’t have to improvise. The smart TVs are preloaded with many streaming apps with Netflix, basic Hulu, and NBC activated. But if you don’t have your own streaming service subscription be prepared to watch Wheel of Fortune every night and any of the 200 episodes of MASH that are available. I know this is a little bit of an exaggeration but I believe it would be renter-friendly to provide cable TV so you can just turn the darn thing on and watch everyday television channels. My wife and I are retired and that allows us to spend 30 days in a rental. That amount of time also allows us to gain a measure of what it would be like to live in a particular place, good and bad. Towards the end of 30 days we are usually fairly conversant in all that a house or condo has to offer. But you can also guess that we aren’t adventurous younger people who are constantly out of the house looking for entertainment. So, take my comments with that in mind.

The apartment is spacious, well appointed, nearby the Greenway for exercise, and in a convenient, safe location in Charleston.

Where is Charleston, SC?

This port city is tucked along the inlet of Charleston Harbor, where the Ashley, Cooper, Wando and Stono Rivers meet with the Atlantic. In typical South Carolina Lowcountry fashion, you’ll find many tributaries and islands here—plus abundant access to sand and surf, with nearby Folly Beach just south of our Charleston condos.

Things to do in Charleston, SC

The beauty of Charleston is that there’s something for everyone, and every type of vacation. Whether you’re traveling with the whole family, a group of friends, or escaping for a romantic getaway, Charleston has plenty to offer. History buffs will delight in visiting Fort Sumter National Monument, which withstood the Civil War and remains open for tours today. Families can spend hours on the beach, playing in the sand and surf, while couples can enjoy a candle-lit evening in one of the city’s finest restaurants.

You can experience the city via a number of tours, whether of the walking, boat, or horse-drawn carriage variety. Allow yourself to be swept away by the beautiful antebellum houses and cobblestone streets, and don’t forget to visit the Historic Charleston City Market to browse the local offerings, including jewelry and Gullah sweetgrass baskets. Stroll along Rainbow Row, another must-see: a stretch of 14 vibrantly painted historic row houses.

No trip to a Charleston vacation home would be complete without a healthy sampling of local cuisine. The city’s food culture is another major draw, and you’ll find no shortage of dining options here. Taste the elevated southern cuisine at Husk, the winner of a James Beard Award. Or watch the sunset with a craft cocktail on the rooftop of Stars Restaurant.

You really can’t go wrong with a getaway to Charleston. Aside from all the buzzing city life and rich history, you’ll be just minutes from some of South Carolina’s most beautiful beaches and marshland.
