Newly Renovated apartment in a great location downtown

Our newly-renovated apartment, the 'Queen of Hearts’, is ideal for a group of up to four who want to have a fun & entertaining stay in Downtown Charleston! With a cozy interior & outdoor porch, and 1 off street parking space. Only a 5-min walk to King St. with its great shops & restaurants. Great for big sized parties, special occasions, or for anyone seeking a fun-filled group vacation!

The Space:

Our two-bedroom apartment has been recently renovated and has a stylish, updated interior. With large windows throughout, the rooms are bathed in natural light and are bright and welcoming. The main space is a great place to relax and socialize with other guests. The property features:

A fully-equipped, modern kitchen. A desk to finish work on.

A living area with a TV and comfy sofa.

Two bedrooms, one with a King-size bed, and one with a queen-size bed. Both bedrooms have built in closet space.

There is one Full bathroom that was completely renovated with a sliding glass install.

The Neighborhood:

Our house is located in the heart of Downtown Charleston, a beautiful historic area that’s a delight to walk around. Just a short walk from the house you’ll find many grand historic buildings including the Ashley Hall school, built in 1909, and the Waring Historical Library with its distinctive castle-like turrets, constructed in 1894.

If you like shopping, the house is only a 5-minute walk from King Street, considered to be the ‘Rodeo Drive’ of Charleston because of its great selection of shops, from high-end clothing boutiques to quirky antique shops and book stores. There’s plenty to keep you entertained here day and night, with many art galleries, cafés, restaurants and bars. Go for a stroll in the day and enjoy the people watching, followed by a cocktail in one of the many trendy bars and perhaps then a live music gig. This is a great place to stay if you want to be very close to the best entertainment and nightlife Charleston has to offer!

The house is only a short walk from Marion Square, a fun park where there is always lots going on, including a farmers’ market every Saturday in the summer. Go for a stroll and view work by local artists - who display their work at weekends - , play Frisbee or sit or socialize with the passers-by, including students from the nearby College of Charleston, dog walkers and tourists. The Charleston Museum, America’s first museum built in 1773, is also close to here and is a great place to visit if you want to learn about the natural and cultural history of the South Carolina Lowcountry.

                                                              Convenient, homey, and practical.

                                                              Convenient walk to almost everything we wanted to do. Clean, comfortable and exceeded expectations. Only criticism is that a Mr. Coffee is a bit dated as a kitchen appliance and necessity.

                                                              Very clean and closely situated to downtown.

                                                              Had a great time in Charleston, property was very nicely decorated and very clean!

                                                              Pleasant visit to Charleston

                                                              This is definitely an old Charleston house and well located for our visit. We arrived soon after hurricane Irma had passed by so there was evidence of recent flooding with cleanup work underway. Once inside though we found the accomodation very clean and comfortable with everything we needed. One must accept features of older buildings but we found everything inside maintained with the Duvet team being easily available for any questions. We walked everywhere we wanted to go downtown and enjoyed our 3 night stay.

                                                              Wonderful stay!

                                                              Susan R.Garden Grove, CA

                                                              My husband and I stayed at this home for four days, after a long road trip down the east coast. Arriving at the property we were very pleased with the cleanliness and décor and very amused with the slanted floor. We had never seen anything like it, but came to find it was not uncommon.

                                                              The amenities were perfect. There is a combo washer / dryer in the kitchen, which after taking some time to Google how to use were able to do very much needed laundry. The kitchen had everything needed for us to make small meals and snack, but with all the great restaurants we did not use it for dinners (primarily only for breakfast). It also helped that there was coffee provided, although some staples such as sugar or common spices (salt / pepper) would have been nice to have as well.

                                                              Property management was very responsive and pleasant to deal with. The first day and second days there, we awoke to some very loud A/C work being done in the unit above us. When we called to inquire how long it would going on they stopped the work and rescheduled until after our stay which was greatly appreciated. Taylor, at StayDuvet also personally called to apologize and even gave us a small credit to go to a nice dinner for the disruption. We used this for a wonderful dinner at High Cotton, which I highly recommend.

                                                              The property is centrally located to most stuff and if you don't mind a 15-20 minute walk close to great shopping and eats! Also, close to a park and small man made lake which was nice to walk in the cooler morning hours.

                                                              Overall, the place was a wonderful place to end our vacation. We'll definitely be back to Charleston!

                                                              Fun exploring Historic Charleston

                                                              Nancy W.

                                                              This property is in a great location for anyone wanting to explore Charleston and be able to walk to all the historic areas. The unit we stayed in is a 2nd floor 2BR unit of a very old house that has been renovated. We were a bit surprised when we first walked into the unit to find slanted floors but as we got to know Charleston, we realized that everything is old and uneven in Charleston. The house is in a quiet residential area which was nice to be able to get away from the busy main streets. Much care was put into decorating this unit. The most important thing to me when I rent a place is that it is clean and has comfortable beds. This unit was immaculate and the beds were amazing. The linens were very high quality. The bathroom was renovated and modern with a large shower and nice plush towels. The kitchen was perfect for making our breakfast and it had everything that we needed. The only thing missing was a place to eat. I think with some rearranging, the management could put a small table and chairs in the living room. Speaking of the management, they were very responsive and helpful. I was getting ready to attend a wedding and realized I forgot to pack a hairdryer. I called the management and they had one delivered to me within 15 minutes. There is a washer in the unit but no dryer. Not sure there is space for a dryer but a clothes rack or a clothes line would be helpful. I highly recommend this unit and would consider staying there again.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thank you for choosing Queen of Hearts to indulge and relax during your Southern Vacation!

                                                              You truly hit the nail on the head, our owners' collective keen eye for attention to detail.

                                                              We pride ourselves on being able to do just what you described, through personalized of decor and plush linens . I am happy to hear that we are able to provide a stay that feels comfortable and upscale but far from stuffy.

                                                              There actually is a dryer on site located in the kitchen. The machine we have is a european model that is a washer dryer combo.

                                                              I hope your travels bring you back to Charleston and our lovely rental.
