The “Charleston Proper” House is the favorite pick for active families, group getaways, retreat seekers, and adventurous travelers.
Perfectly nestled in the most desirable neighborhood of Mount Pleasant, the Charleston Proper House provides you and your guests with a prime location for exploring all the excellent activities, shopping, dining, and sightseeing of Charleston. This private home is also a wonderful option for lounging, entertaining, celebrating, reuniting, and most importantly, relaxing.
To easily stock for your visit, great selections for groceries, drinks, baked goods, and supplies are just three minutes from the house. The Publix Super Market is best for groceries, wine, and baked goods, the New York Butcher Shoppe for fantastic top tier meats, and Bradley’s Spirits for liquors. For wine and beer aficionados, stop by Bottles Beverage Superstore on Coleman Blvd for a comprehensive selection.
Your kitchen is fully stocked with updated appliances, cookware, tableware, and glassware so preparing meals and entertaining your guests are a breeze. Ample seating is available at the dining, breakfast, and counter tables as well as on the screened outdoor private patio. After a meal, enjoy your favorite Netflix show or some cable programming including HBO in the comfy living room. For cooler nights, the fireplace is an excellent way to warm up and wind down from a busy schedule.
The Charleston Proper House bedrooms feature crisp linens, fresh pillows, and updated furniture for excellent rest and relaxation during your trip. The master suite offers a king bed arrangement, the second bedroom provides two (2) twin beds, the third bedroom hosts two (2) full beds, and the fourth bedroom presents a queen bed. If traveling with little ones, a Pack & Play and a Baby Bjorn portable crib are also included.
Breakfast and brunch options are aplenty with great choices all across Charleston. One of the best known spots is Page's Okra Grill on Coleman Boulevard, just minutes from Charleston Proper. After breakfast, a relaxing day at the beach is also just minutes away so bring your beach chairs and drive the panoramic lowcountry causeway of Ben Sawyer Boulevard to historic Sullivan’s Island. After a few hours of soaking in the sun, swing by Poe’s Tavern for a quick bite and beverage at lunch. Packed house? Home Team BBQ is another excellent option just across the street. After indulging, head over to the infamous Fort Moultrie, where the first shot of the Civil War was fired.
Following a full day of exploring, gather the group for an evening of celebration on your private deck overlooking the neighborhood water pond. Your private grassed lawn and fenced yard are excellent for a quick game of bocce or just soaking in a Carolina sunset with cocktails and gourmet snacks. For fresh seafood, stop by Mount Pleasant Seafood on Shrimp Boat Lane for all the daily catches.
For another exploration day on the town, take a quick 12-minute Uber or Lyft to Patriots Point, and you’re at the USS Yorktown, Patriots Golf Links, and the Charleston Harbor Water Taxi. Enjoy a day on the waterfront golf course, explore inside the WWII USS Yorktown aircraft carrier, or hop on the Charleston Harbor Water Taxi and cruise across the sailboat speckled harbor to downtown Charleston. Spend an afternoon at the South Carolina Aquarium or ride further on the water taxi to Waterfront Park. Near Waterfront Park is Charleston’s Market Street for cute local gifts, casual shopping, and convenient dining. Just below the market are Charleston’s iconic “Rainbow Row” homes and the illustrious French Quarters neighborhood featuring art galleries and antebellum homes. This is a fantastic area to stroll the city and take in the sights and southern culture.
To help you prepare for a night out, Charleston Proper features two (2) full bathrooms as well as an additional half bath. Fluffy towels and a complete set of bath linens are present, and the house also included a washer dryer set for laundering any linens or clothing during your stay. Iron, ironing board, and hairdryers are also included.
Both Mount Pleasant and Charleston provide excellent drink lounges and restaurants featuring a endless list of styles, options, and tastes. For drinks by the water, Tavern & Table is a fantastic choice near Charleston Proper and only an 8-minute ride. For dinner in historic Charleston, FIG, Husk, and Halls Chophouse are world renowned but dozens of tremendous options are throughout the city. As the evening progresses into night, “upper King St” from Calhoun Street to Spring Street comes alive with boisterous visitors and locals. Stars Rooftop Bar and Cocktail Club are local favorites. For a lower tempo experience, the Market Pavilion Rooftop and The Rooftop Bar at Vendue Inn offer excellent views of the Holy City and all her sky reaching church steeples.
Following an evening out, a day at the spa & salon is another convenient option for Charleston Proper guests. The luxury spa & salon, STOX & Co, is located on Coleman Boulevard just 5 minutes away and you and your guests receive an exclusive offer with your rental of Charleston Proper. While half the group takes a spa day, the other half can enjoy a multitude of golf and links courses. Patriots Point, Wild Dunes, Charleston National, and Dunes West are some of the top picks for an entertaining and challenging day on the greens.
Charleston Proper also is very short walk to the Pitt Street Bridge. Although now exclusively for pedestrians and cyclists, the Pitt Street Bridge was once the sole access route to Charleston’s barrier islands, Sullivan's Island and Isle of Palms, by luxury train.
Although the region is best known for food, wine, and history, Charleston also entertains a range of spectator sports including tennis, hockey, baseball, soccer, and basketball. Family Circle Tennis, Stingrays Hockey, Charleston RiverDogs Baseball, Charleston Battery Soccer, and the College of Charleston Cougars are all excellent event options for a evening with fellow sports enthusiasts. Another great way to spend a day is to explore the College of Charleston campus and Citadel campus featuring beautiful grounds & gardens and historic buildings. Located only 20 minutes from the Charleston Proper House, both are a wonderful way to experience the city and her dedication to developing the next generation of scholars.
Shopping in the Holy City and her surrounding areas offer endless boutiques, jewelers, and art galleries. For a great men’s apparel gift, try Jordan Lash Charleston on King St. For hidden gems of the jewelry world, Croghan Jewel Box is a top pick for locals. In Mount Pleasant, the Towne Center has a wide range of shops, department stores, and also a movie theatre in case of a cooling summer rain shower.
We look forward to hosting you and your guests at the Charleston Proper House. With a world of exploring, dining, shopping, and entertainment just moments away, we are excited to provide you a wonderful experience... and one you’ll remember forever.
