Welcome to 19 Broad. As Proprietors, we care deeply about our property and our guests. We are a City of Charleston licensed rental.
19 Broad is downtown Charleston's finest apartment accommodation, with a location second to none — perfect for couples, families and business travelers who seek the space and privacy of a full apartment without the expense of a hotel room. Normandy Farm Artisan Bakery occupies the first floor and Oak Steakhouse next door, affording guests direct access to an authentic European-style bakery and fine dining steakhouse restaurant. Our newest and finest restaurant, E (The Establishment), is just across Broad Street and we highly recommend this fine culinary experience.
Our Rustic Studio offers minimal restoration of original brick walls, retains original beams repurposed as a bar separating the kitchen from the sitting area. A point of interest is the carved numbering system that is scratched into this bar over 200 years ago by artisans from another era. The original bank vault is located behind this apartment.
Our charming circa 1794 property is located at the crux of the French Quarter and historic Charlestowne neighborhoods, within one block of the best shopping, dining, history and architecture in Charleston. World class restaurants within very close walking distance include Husk, FIG, Peninsula Grill, Charleston Grill, Magnolia's, Cru Cafe, McCrady's, Revival, SNOB, and so many more. We recommend a walk North on East Bay Street up to Market Street and South on Meeting Street to take in all the restaurant offerings.
19 Broad features original Charleston brick hearths and heart pine floors, period millwork, original moulding and spacious rooms with high ceilings.
The property is a renovated and updated bank building dating back to 1794, prominently positioned on historic Broad Street and surrounded by Charleston’s most famous architecture, parks and gardens. Our guest rooms feature quality home furniture, bathrooms with tile floors and showers, large social spaces, cooking and dining spaces, complimentary WiFi and basic cable TV. The entire property can hold ten guests, but can also be subdivided in order to accommodate multiple smaller parties entirely independent from one another.
Accommodations at 19 Broad include a 2 bedroom/2 bath full apartment and two studio apartments, which may be rented independently of, or in conjunction with, one another:

19 Broad affords all guests complimentary coffee, paper towels, bath towels, wash cloths, toilet tissue and shower gel. While we are happy to direct guests to nearby pharmacies and convenient stores, we do suggest that guests bring personal toiletries and cosmetics in order to ensure optimal comfort. All beds are neatly made with freshly laundered sheets prior to arrival.
Our neighborhood constitutes a unique blend of commercial properties and residential homes. Accordingly, the City of Charleston enforces a noise ordinance between the hours of 11:00 pm and 7:00 am. Out of respect for our loyal guests, as well as our neighbors in the City of Charleston, we ask our guests to exercise consideration of their surroundings and to adhere to this ordinance from the hours of 11:00 pm to 7:00 am.
For any and every occasion, a vacation in Charleston deserves respectable celebration. Our property is the perfect space for large families, girls’ weekends, golfing trips, wedding parties, traveling couples, and more. Located within the Original Walled City, our location is loved by all guests. Be aware that other apartments advertising "heart of Historic District" means many things. There is only one "Original Walled City" that spans a very detailed area of Historic Charleston within a few blocks radius of all the City of Charleston is best known for. Walk everywhere and in all directions to take in all Historic Sites. World Class restaurants are most accessible and in very close walking distance. Rainbow Row is steps away from Jacobson Building around the corner on East Bay Street. Take a close look. All else is History!
