Recent guest review...What a excellent home away from home! Sidney and Margie have a impressive bungalow! It’s modern and new. Margie could double as a home interior designer and Sidney as a top chef baker and master Gardner! We had everything we needed and then some! The place was shining clean and bright and airy. The patio area and backyard getaway were incredible. We appreciated wine on the private patio numerous nights during our weeklong stay. We arrived to find wine, homemade cookies, and chocolates in the bungalow. We drove and really appreciated the on premise parking space. We drove to many Charleston destinations during our stay but opted to Uber downtown. It was convenient and a little cheaper than paying for downtown parking. You can’t go wrong with The Backyard Cottage! Thank you Sidney and Margie! We’ll be back!

The bungalow is equipped for two (2) adults only. Cleanliness and privacy are our top priorities when we travel, that is what you'll find here at The Backyard Cottage. In our backyard you may find us gardening, working on a project or playing with grandchildren. We spend a lot of time on our back porch which you must walk past to get to the bungalow, however we cannot see your patio from the porch.

Thank for looking! We hope to see you soon!

Our top Charleston vacation rental home tips:

Get the most from your rental budget:

  • To find the best rental home for your budget, we strongly suggest booking in the Fall or Spring shoulder seasons. You'll benefit from lower rates, better selection, warm weather and the absence of giant crowds at your favorite Charleston area restaurants and activities. Many vacationers use this strategy to find larger homes within budget, or to book an oceanfront vacation rental that would otherwise be unaffordable during the high season.
  • Book your vacation home as early as possible. Rental schedules usually become available a year in advance (or in September just after Summertime ends). Many families book their Summer vacations during Winter holiday get-togethers. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may be qualified for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property owner if your family qualifies for a special rate.
  • Property managers typically offer renters an option to add trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which normally will cost you 1% - 5% of the reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for missed days as a result of medical-related emergencies or weather disasters, as well as evacuation charges, such as an unexpected hotel overnight or additional gas expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for additional information.
  • Look for your local Charleston area area magazine when you check-in. If your rental property doesn't have one, you can find them at local shops and fuel stations. In addition to great local stories, visitor guide magazines have discounts for nearby accommodations, tours and attractions.

How to pick the perfect rental in Charleston:

  • Select dates and max budget.
  • Determine how many bedrooms and what type of bedroom configuration your family needs. Charleston Cottage! Absolutely stunning! has 1 bedrooms and 1 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our rental home search.
  • Specific information about bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is regularly available on booking websites. If not, email the property management company before reserving the rental. Note that most properties list the max. guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds and bunks. You will need to establish which bed configuration is optimal for your family.
  • If there's a particular Charleston area attraction you long to visit, look for homes that are either close by, or those that cater especially to your needs.
  • Appropriate accessibility can make or break a vacation for those with limited mobility. Make certain to ask about wheel chair accessibility, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs.
  • Some rental properties allow pets, but others don't. Acceptable types of family pet, weight and breeds may be restricted, and additional costs may apply. Ask the property management company about pet restrictions before booking.

During your stay:

  • Review check in & check out procedures before traveling. Save the directions to your smartphone, and take a printed copy.
  • Upon check-in, document any damages to the rental property and immediately contact the property manager. Record all correspondence in case a dispute arises.
  • Hosts are great sources of help! Don't be shy to ask questions before, during, or after your stay.
  • Don't forget to respect your neighbors. Frequently, nearby homes are filled by local residents. Respecting noise limits and parking rules is the right thing to do.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Locals can usually point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to see a beautiful sunrise or sunset, have a great night out, or the best spots for crabbing?
  • Lock your vacation home while you're out and about. Keep your property safe!
  • At departure, complete a walk-through to make sure you have not forget any personal items. Re-check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden belongings. Clean the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Record a video to document the condition of the property.
  • After your trip, leave feedback! Property owners rely on excellent ratings to compel more reservations. They'll be grateful for your feedback. Alternatively, if something went wrong, other vacationers will appreciate that you share your review find their best vacation rental. Please be fair with your feedback If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the owner had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded reasonably to fix it.
