Where to Stay near Charleston, South Carolina

While recently planning a trip to Charleston, South Carolina, we are so glad to find this Park Circle Cottage Airbnb to stay at while exploring the area.  The central location, family friendly amenities, modern updates and helpful host make this Airbnb the perfect place for a family to stay when visiting the Charleston area. Here is a full rundown of why we found this Airbnb to be the perfect spot for our family to stay near Charleston.

Central Convenient Location

The location of this Airbnb in North Charleston is ideal for outings to downtown as well as other attractions in the surrounding the area.  By car, you are about 15 minutes from downtown and less than 30 minutes from the Magnolia Plantation as well as the Cypress Gardens.  You are also only about 15 minutes away from Sullivan’s Island.  Staying a little bit outside of downtown Charleston makes it much more convenient to see the other highlights in the area surrounding the city.  Also, the quiet neighborhood this home is located in is a nice contrast from the busyness of downtown Charleston.

Family Friendly

This Airbnb is very family friendly. There is a highchair and pack n play for your use during your stay as well as some toys. It was so helpful to be able to pull out some toys and books (new to our toddler) when we arrived after a long day of travel. With these, she was able to independently play while we settled ourselves.  Further, the two bedrooms allowed us to have both kids sleep in different rooms and made it much easier for our toddler/baby (and us!) to sleep.  The clean modern updates made the home very functional as well.

Large Backyard with Established Trees

The backyard at this Airbnb is really a highlight. There are some very large established shade trees in the backyard, some lights along the fence line and a fire pit.  Even though we were visiting in the chilly start of December, we were able to take our toddler outside to run around.  It was nice to have such a large enclosed private area. 

Near Downtown North Charleston & Park Circle Playground

This Airbnb is also conveniently located less than a half a mile from downtown North Charleston. Downtown North Charleston is nothing short of adorable with many cute local shops/restaurants.  You could definitely spend an afternoon exploring here itself.  Also, it is really nice to have options for dining out/takeout so close by. Further, there is the largest playground we have ever seen in our entire lives (pictures do not do it justice) less than a half mile from the Airbnb in Park Circle. This brand new playground is nothing short of a dream come true for a kid. Honestly, our 2 year old is happy with a basic swing and slide but this would be a huge highlight for any kid who is 3 years or older. 

Helpful Host

Nicholas was a very helpful host before and during our stay. He was quick to answer any and all questions we had and was able to provide us with some local insights/tips. When we were looking for a good seafood restaurant downtown, he was quick to give us a delicious local recommendation. He is great at communicating yet allows you your space/privacy when visiting.
