We were somewhat pleased with our stay in N. Charleston. It was nice to greeted with a tray of snacks and water – refreshing after flights. Our initial discontent was with HomeAways’ “hidden charges” that are not shown on the search – only showing after booking. When we chose the unit we were expecting one rate for weekend and a lesser charge for weekday. We arrived on Wed and departed on Sat. We were charged the same for all nights PLUS the fee, taxes, cleaning – outrageous, and the refundable damage fee. These charges doubled our expected – and shown rate. We did not damage anything so the damage refund has been refunded. The unit was clean but there were noticeable and needed repairs for something of that rate. Specifically: ½ bath toilet broken paper holder, light bulbs needed in dining area, the sofas were a disgrace – mismatched, dirty, uncomfortable – and NOT as shown in VRBO listing – in fact ALL photos need to be updated. The vertical blinds were broken needing to be closed manually, patio screen was cut at handle, carpet on stairs was filthy, front bedroom broken blind slat, bath light plate broken, tub is chipped, hole in curtain, iron board broken, back bedroom- bath had no sink drain plug, vent didn’t work, light switch defective. If damages are charged per rental the repairs haven’t been done. We mentioned a couple but to have mentioned all would have meant constant texting to owner. To list this as “Quiet and Close” is a bit of a stretch. The proximity to the interstate means constant heavy traffic noise and the AC unit at the back makes the patio un-useable while looking at the Recycle cart and the units behind! The unit was almost 20 miles to the downtown area taking over an hour with traffic. The kitchen was well supplied with appliances and dishes/utensils. Towels and beds were very good.
