Free, Plentiful Parking for Residents & Guests!

Every resident gets a parking sticker, free of charge, upon move in. Each unit also gets 2 guest parking hang tags, that allow their guests to park anywhere in the Charleston lot. Residents and guests can also park across the street in the last row (closest to Lucy Drive) of the Valley Fitness parking lot.

Charleston Townes is a pet-friendly community!

Bringing your furry friend is affordable. There is a down-payment due at the signing of the pet lease; a portion of this is refundable if there are no pet-related damages at move-out. A portion of the deposit is nonrefundable to deodorize & deflea the premises at move-out. The monthly pet rent ranges  depending on the size of the pet. If you would like to get a cat/dog, we’ll need written approval from all your roommates (a simple email to the Property Manager is perfect!) before a Pet Lease can be signed.
