About the property

Old Charleston Charm-- Historic Location

Perfect for Anniversary and Honeymoon

Situated in the heart of Old Historic Charleston, this one bedroom Pied-a-Terre Condo is two blocks from the City Market, Waterfront Park, 17 Art Galleries and 8 Diamond Restaurants. Recently renovated, this 1815 restored building is fronted at street level 4 gas street lanterns, has 1,300 square feet, 10 foot ceilings, heart pine floors, a large 35 foot living room with 6 windows of sunshine, richly appointed with leather sofas, antiques, fireplace, oriental rugs, antique canopy bed, large shower and a separate large office with Partners Desk. It includes everything:

*Climate controlled

*TV-DVD-CD entertainment center

*High Speed Internet--DSL

*Sheets, towels, soap, hair dryer

*Fully equipped kitchen

*Dishes, silver, pots and pans

*Washer/Dryer, Iron

*Smoke and Pet-Free Building

*Gated nights and weekends

*Parking Garage available

This is not a sterile rental unit, but more like visiting at a friend's house when they are out of town. The generous space (1100 SF) is the size of three hotel rooms, but the cost of half of one. Just having the convenience of a kitchen, if nothing more than breakfast and a late night snack (such as your leftovers from an amazing meal at one of the many local restaurants), makes traveling more like a vacation.

The French Quarter is graced with art galleries, historic church steeples, cobblestone streets, and an atmosphere of relaxed luxury, Charleston’s French Quarter is an island of bohemian delights within America’s most historic city. A quiet residential area of graceful homes and gardens and gas street lights has a European feeling. The Quarter is surrounded by cozy restaurants, southern food, fashionable retail shops and lively entertainment venues. Featuring property that comprised much of the original walled city dating back to 1704, the French Quarter eccentricities include old pirate taverns and tunnels dating to colonial days, the nation’s only and most famous French Anglican church, the Market and centuries-old graveyards where ghost tours are still the rage. Part of the National Historic Register for its concentration of 18th and 19th century architecture, the French Quarter boasts some of the city’s best examples of early Georgian single houses, airy piazzas and verdant courtyard gardens.

The Apartment would be ideal for someone looking to relocate to Charleston and is searching for a house to buy or just visiting America’s most historic city. Please note that all bookings are for 30 days or more.

Payment can be by personal check or Credit Card accepted through Paypal.

Pictures and more details on request. Please read the reviews!

Please note the central location in this vibrant distract has many local restaurants and entertainment with drinking and dining options close by, it also has some of the noise that goes with it. There is a sound machine in the bedroom for your use. If you are particularly sensitive to noise, this may not be the best option for you.

Look no further in Charleston

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I recently stayed in this property while in town for a wedding. The location is perfect and Robert went out of his way to accommodate our schedules. The property is very spacious and comes with all the necessities at a fraction of the price of nearby hotels. There are several bars/restaurants/shops within a couple of blocks and the entire historic district is very walkable. We rented a car thinking we would need it for the beach or other day trips, but it ended up staying parked the entire weekend. Uber is cheap and readily available in the area, so go that route unless you plan to drive a significant distance. Thanks again!

Elegant Charm - Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked through the door, we were in love with this condo. With its majestic high ceilings and warm, welcoming decor, you will not be disappointed in this Charleston treasure! This condo is exactly as advertised; however the photos do not do it justice. From the plush leather couches to the beautiful antique furniture, you feel like you are staying in the home of a friend. Robert takes great care to make sure that his guests feel welcome. The location was perfect, with most shopping and dining within easy walking distance. I am so glad that we chose to stay here - we will definitely be back!

It's all they wrote!

  • 5 of 5

I can echo the glowing reviews that got me interested in this property. We had no car during our stay and didn't miss it because we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. It was total immersion in the best of historic Charleston, starting with the condo itself. The luxury of having a spacious living room to relax and regroup in was integral to the authentic experience. The owner, Robert, was gracious and attentive to making it a good experience for us. We would love to return!

Sun Prairie, WI

Best Location in Charleston - Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great condo in the middle of everything. Immerse yourself in the history of this great city. You can walk literally everywhere or take a bike taxi to every great attraction in this historic city. There are 100's of restaurants within walking distance. You can eat the best of Charleston on the same block if you want. The City Market is a block away. Upscale shopping within walking distance. The carriage tours, walking tours and even the ghost tours are all within walking distance. If you want to see historic Charleston, I highly recommend taking a tour. If you are into architecture, photography, this is a can't miss. You can also take a cooking class right next door and learn how to cook Low Country cuisine. You are also within walking distance of the harbor. Perfect for a couple who wants a romantic get-a-way. If you like nightlife, you can walk to it all. Robert, the owner is awesome, he cared enough to call and make sure that everything was ok, offered lots of information and genuinly wanted to make sure that our trip was great. Loved it!

Charleston, French Quarter

  • 5 of 5

This was a very eclectic apartment with so much character. The location was perfect, right the heart of the downtown area. We walked every wear that we went and we were very closed to restaurants and shopping. We found the people in Charleston to be very friendly and we had some great conversations with travelers as well.
