About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)
This ground floor 'garden' apartment is only rented to one party at a time; if only one bedroom is used, the other is not rented to anyone else and the rate drops. YOU MUST CALL to BOOK, as this is a private home and we need your contact information, your estimated time of arrival, etc.
There are 2 bedrooms, one with a queen-size canopy bed, the other with twin beds. There is one bathroom with a glass shower and double sinks.
A continental breakfast of breads, fruit, yogurts, and cereals, as well as coffee and tea, is provided.
Our amenities include wireless internet service, off-street parking, a refrigerator, a microwave, bathrobes, a hairdryer, and a small lending library. We do not have flat screen televisions.
We do not allow pets, cooking, or children under the age of 17. The entire property is non-smoking, including the driveway and garden. Multiple level changes in the old building and the garden make it unsuitable for those who are unsteady on their feet.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Why the Owner Chose Harleston Village, Charleston, SC, USA:
We have enjoyed the restoration and stewardship of an eighteenth century house steeped in history. The house, built by the French Hugenot, Philip Porcher, survived the devasting fire of 1861 and is beautifully located in the center of Charleston's Historic District. The size of the property allows us to pursue one of our favorite hobbies, gardening, on a large scale.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We can never take the stunning views of the Baroque and Gothic church steeples and facades across the street for granted. We enjoy our garden and porches nearly all year long in our temperate climate.
