About the owner: My husband had the wisdom to buy this property while we were dating. I never dreamed my Charleston Tea Party Private Tour and this property would marry. We keep it affordable for those who want to savor Charleston for a week while they go on my tour and get to know Charleston. We live downtown as well on the Ashley River with our 3 teenagers and English Springer Spaniel, Chesterfield, who reflects being made in the image of God better than we do. I invite you into our home for Tea at lunchtime at the end of my tour.
Why the Owner Chose Cannonborough Elliotborough, Charleston, SC, USA:
My husband and I are both from Charleston, grew up here, and never desired to live anywhere else. He was living in the large historic house across the street from this vacation rental, renting from the childless couple who lived there and loved him, when this rental house came on the market. Instead of living the high life while dating me, he wisely invested in this property. I thought this property would provide opportunities for people who love Charleston to come with family or friends and stay longer at a more affordable price.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Everywhere you want to go in the historic district is within walking or bicycling distance. The spacious apartment is clutter free, each being a room with a view. You can bring or rent bicycles. There is room in the private garage for them and your car in the back. A washer and dryer are also in the back. It is a vibrant neighborhood of young medical professionals, historic houses, and popular restaurants and bakeries nearby. There is a big picnic basket in the kitchen you can fill for a picnic to a plantation or park. SUGAR bakery on Cannon St around the corner and Saffron's on East Bay are great for collecting baked goods for a tea party picnic. You will find a gallon jar for sweet iced tea from Charleston grown tea. The trolley bus is free and picks up on Cannon St, a one minute walk from the house, taking you all over the peninsula of historic Charleston. A map with its stops in a guide book awaits you in the kitchen. The history of Charleston is to be savored, the visual richness of English architecture and garden designs to be enjoyed. One lifetime is not enough.
