Our Ears Are Burning

What a gorgeous slice of chic heaven just steps away from the party scene of upper King Street. Truly the best of both worlds!! The tempurpedic king size bed is a dream to sleep on and my daughter said the couch bed is very comfortable. All of the furnishings are state of the art and first class. You will be delighted with your atmosphere if you get the chance to stay in this lovely flat.

We had a wonderful beach holiday at the View last week. The property was as described and more! Your attention to detail was appreciated by all 3 families. It was a home away from home and we especially enjoyed the fresh bed and bath linens. We would recommend this property to anyone, especially families! It was great to walk out the back door onto the beach to enjoy and return at lunch for food and naps. The adults enjoyed happy hour and sunset on the decks overlooking the amazing view.. The kids enjoyed the 2 minute walk to restaurants and shops. We are already discussing our next visit!

I am new to the “Owner” role, and I interviewed a number of management companies before I decided which one was the best to manage my property in downtown Charleston. After speaking to Sophie Leigh-Jones and the team at Luxury Simplified Retreats, it was clear to me that they would be the best in helping me care for my property, and maximizing the rentals. They have been managing my property for over a year now, and I could not be more pleased with their performance. They are responsive, professional, and really make our guests feel at home. The comments so far on our rentals have been unbelievable, and I truly believe that is just as much about the service they give our guests as the state of the property. If you are considering hiring a management team for your vacation rental, I would highly recommend Luxury Simplified Retreats.

Beautifully decorated & very clean house with an excellent location for those who enjoy walking. The bedding was nice and the kitchen was nicely appointed.Communication was great and access & parking were easy.

The apartment was beautiful and clean.. Better than the photos. Sophie was very accommodating especially with my flight difficulties. Fantastic place!

I arrived late in a pouring rain storm. The host, Luke, waited patiently and graciously. He then helped carry our suitcases in and directed us to the included parking garage. The location is incredible for walking. Great restaurants, City Market, Waterfront Park, Carriage rides, art galleries and much more are just a few blocks away. I would highly recommend “Downtown Charleston”. I hope it’s available next time I visit Charleston!

I had an amazing time in Charleston and fell in love with this home. It is newly renovated and has lots of open space and wonderful light! I enjoyed having coffee on the beautiful deck in the morning and sipping a glass of wine in the evening in the courtyard. It is in a perfect location and within walking distance to great shops and restaurants. I felt like I was home in this wonderful space, it truly has Charleston charm!

This was the perfect place to stay. Incredible view and well equipped. The management team did an excellent job making us feel comfortable as well as recommending charter services and dining. We will definitely be booking this location again.

First trip to Charleston and staying at this place contributed to our positive experience. The unit is ideally situated blocks within from Market Street, King Street and the historic district of Charleston. I would recommend the unit to anyone who is looking to visit Charleston.
