Best Vacation rental group in Charleston! Some of the properties on King Street are just amazing. Highly recommended for your stay in Charleston.

Wow! From the moment we opened the door we loved the space. We were totally surprised at how nice and how spacious the rooms were… The décor was lovely and all the furniture was extremely comfortable…Plus, the suite is centrally located in the historic district, so we were able to walk to all the sites. We love Charleston and intend to visit again, and when we do, this will be the first place we check for lodging. All of us were thrilled and felt very lucky to have happened upon such lovely lodging!

The Walk Away Stays team is a dream to work with. They are professional, knowledgable, and highly capable. As a first-time property owner renting out my place, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But they have bene a pleasure to work with from Day 1 and I couldn’t recommend the WAS team more highly.

This is a beautiful property right in the heart of King Street! Management was very responsive to all of my requests. I would definitely stay here again.

We just left the 118 Compound and had a great time! The unit is beautiful and in excellent condition, along with being in a great area of Charleston. It was very clean and very well appointed. The unit is exactly as it is pictured and described. It was a pleasure dealing with Walk Away Stays as they helped us in choosing the best unit to rent for our group, and prior to arrival when giving detailed information on the unit and the area. We definitely plan on using Walk Away Stays for future visits!

HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!! The best way to describe my feeling with our rental. [Walk Away Stay’s] customer service was outstanding, even when I repeatedly called to confirm pricing, Jackie kindly gave me detailed pricing (no hidden fees!) for multiple units. Other out of town guests were envious on how lucky we got with this house. If you want to be close to good restaurants and have an easy time walking around town, I highly recommend this house. The price was right too! Can’t wait to book my next stay!!
