Spacious 5BR Overlooking Lagoon
"This was one of the worst experiences I have ever had trying to rent from Red Awning/Turnkey! There was only one agent at either company that was helpful and her name was Jennifer! Without her help we would never have received our check-in info! Turnkey tried to say we had a house in Mooresville, NC, close since it was Folly Beach, SC. Agents from both Red Awning and Turnkey were not helpful except for Jennifer and by the time I talked to her I was an irate customer."..."

Oceanfront Gem w/ Superb Views -- Steps to Water!
"My husband and I were looking for a home on the beach to spend 5 days. It was our first time in years to have a kidless vacation and we literally wanted to do NOTHING. The home was beautiful. Tons of character. It seemed like it was an old family home and everything from the decor on the walls, to the books and games, to the cups and plates and dining room chairs, all had a story. I loved it. The only real issue we had was the internet. After beautiful days of doing nothing, we'd try to come in and watch a movie and we couldn't get either internet options to work well. But if you don't plan on using the internet, this should not be a problem. We made do :) The location was great, far away from the center of folly. Walking distance to the lighthouse beach. We rented bikes and rode to town for dinner one night. 20 ish minutes each way. The deck overlooking the ocean was perfect in the morning, in the afternoon once there is some shade, and in the evening. We had an incredible time forgetting what day of the week it was and time did not matter. I absolutely loved this home. If you are looking for a fancy pants beach house, this is not it. It is full of love and character, and we were very happy with it! ALSO!! I love that Turnkey has a text system. This was my first time using Turnkey and I was a little skeptical at first when I purchased the rental because I ended up having to call to complete the payment (I thought I had already paid). Then we had a minor issue with there being no linens, but that was quickly solved and was just a communication issue, but I was able to figure all of that out via text. I loved that option! Turnkey was professional and easy to work with."..."

New Listing! Beachfront Getaway w/ Huge Deck
"Home was fine for our short stay. We chose it for the location and fenced yard for our 2 pups. Home was older but maintained well. We did not know that the driveway was shared with a studio apt so pups did not like the noises and car doors at night but overall worked out. Screened porch was nice to sit and have coffee."..."

How to pick the perfect vacation rental in Charleston

Condé Nast Traveler has voted Charleston, South Carolina the “No. 1 Small U.S. City” eight years in a row, but don’t let the title fool you: Charleston offers a wealth of big experiences for travelers of every variety. Downtown Charleston boasts numerous art galleries (Hagan Fine Art Gallery & Studio, Art Mecca of Charleston), museums (the Charleston Museum, the Gibbes Museum of Art) and restaurants (Charleston Grill, the Darling Oyster Bar), while its beaches offer a great escape from the sweltering summer heat. History buffs can tour the famed Civil War battleground Fort Sumter, and nature enthusiasts can get lost for hours in Charleston’s vast plantations.

Follow these tips to help you pick the perfect Charleston vacation rental for your travel plans.

  • Where to stay to take a plantation tour:Charleston is home to several gorgeous plantations, which offer a glimpse into the city’s rich past and allow for breathtaking strolls through lush gardens. Book a stay in North Charleston along the Ashley River to visit Magnolia Plantation & Gardens, the oldest public garden in the United States. Or stay in Mount Pleasant to visit Boone Hall, which boasts the “Avenue of Oaks,” stretching over a kilometer leading up to the grounds’ main house.
  • Where to stay to visit Fort Sumter:Fort Sumter has a rich history as home to two battles during the Civil War. It’s now open to the public as part of the Fort Sumter National Monument. Fort Sumter itself is located in the Charleston Harbor (also a great spot to enjoy a luxury dinner cruise), so visitors can’t go wrong booking a coastal villa in the Harbor. But vacationers can also book a vacation rental in downtown Charleston and catch a daily ferry out to the historical site.
  • Where to stay for shopping and art:History buffs, shopaholics, and art enthusiasts alike will find plenty to love in the King Street Historic District. The gorgeous, walking-friendly neighborhood boasts several art galleries, boutiques, and hip restaurants and bars. If you book a vacation rental near King Street, it’s mandatory to make a trip to the City Market, home to more than 100 vendors selling clothing, jewelry, crafts, food, and more.
  • Where to stay near the beach:Looking to beat the heat this summer? Book a vacation rental for the week by the family-friendly Folly Beach, located just 15 minutes from downtown Charleston. Pack a picnic lunch and spend the whole day soaking up the sun and catching some waves. Then grab dinner or drinks at one of the neighborhood’s many trendy restaurants and bars, such as Snapper Jacks or Folly Beach Crab Shack.
  • How to choose your Charleston rental experience:Charleston offers an ideal vacation experience for every type of traveler. Couples who prefer to explore on foot and crave romantic outings filled with great food should try a cozy condo or apartment near the King Street Historic District or French Quarter. Families looking to retreat to the beach for a week or more can check out a beachfront condo or villa by Folly Beach. Folks who want to visit Charleston’s plantations can take their pick of charming condos in North Charleston or Mount Pleasant. Charleston has plenty of attractions to entertain visitors, but with these rental tips, you can stay like a local.
