About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath One-Storey Cottage In The Heart Of Upper King Street/dwtn

Slightly north of the College of Charleston on historic St. Philip Street this charming cottage is the perfect base to enjoy an enchanting Charleston experience. Charleston is like Rome Italy in that most of notable monuments and historic details are found in a fairly confined area. You can literally walk from the Cottage to the southernmost extremes of the Historic District in under thirty minutes. This journey will take you through the Historic King Street District, and the neighborhoods of Cannonborough, Elliottborough , Radcliffborough, Harleston Village, and finally South of Broad, until you reach the Battery itself. Go east one block and you are on King Street, the home of designer shops, eclectic boutiques, antique stores, and host of other fascinating shops as well as nationally acclaimed restaurants. Upper King is the new center of Charleston’s renowned restaurant and night life. A recent survey of the “Essential 18 Charleston Restaurants” has seven of these restaurants (Hominey Grill, Indaco, The Grocery, The Macintosh, The Ordinary, Two Boroughs Larder, , Xiao Bao Biscuit) within four blocks of the cottage.

The cottage is a three bedroom sand-alone home, set back from the street with two off street parking spaces. It is perfect for a family or friends traveling together. A spacious living room furnished with comfortable chairs, sofa, HDTV ,bar, and antique writing desk provide a nice area for entertaining and socializing with fellow guests. A full size, well equipped kitchen with adjoining dining area with seating for six connects to the living room. Each of the three bedrooms have queen size beds, chest of drawers, bedside lighting and at least one chair or sofa. There are two double closets in two of the bedrooms, and a single double closet in the third. A chest of drawers is conveniently placed in one closet in each bedroom providing fabulous storage and easy organization of your personal clothing and suitcases, etc. . The two bathrooms are convenient to the three bedrooms: one is equipped with a tub and shower combination while other has a shower only. The baths have ample storage for your personal effects. High quality linens and towels are provided.

You do not need to have automobile to enjoy Charleston while staying in the Cottage. The city operates a free tourist shuttle bus services should you decide to ride and the closest stop is only about a minute away. However, as mentioned above, two off street are included with the cottage.

Electronic equipment includes WiFi internet connection, wireless printer, cable HDTV, coffee maker, micro wave, hair dryer, toaster oven, iron with ironing board, washer and dryer.

A small outside garden area has been arranged for your enjoyment. A gas grill along with a dining table, umbrella, and six comfortable chairs are provided.

Comfortable, cozy

  • 5 of 5

Great place. Very nice owner. Only problem was the placement of the electrical outlets in both bathroom are positioned horizontally vs vertically which does not allow enough space between the socket and the wall to plug in the blow dryer. We had to dry our hair in our bedrooms.

Great Place & Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for one week in June 2017 for a family event. The house was perfectly located for our purposes (one block off of King St.) and nicely appointed. We especially liked the outdoor courtyard area for sitting but (WARNING!) you will need insect repellent. Jamie was very accommodating when we called because the gas grill ran out of propane. Otherwise, we had a very relaxing stay and enjoyed the many sites and restaurants of Charleston. We look forward to returning next year - thanks, Jamie!

Two families stayed at this property for our son's wedding. It was a perfect location for us since the reception venue was just around the corner, within walking distance. The house's layout is good--the kitchen and sitting room are nearest to the street, and the bedrooms are located in the rear of the house, away from the street. Two of the bedrooms are quite large and the other is significantly smaller. The living room and kitchen were comfy, and the courtyard space was great--perfect place to sit and enjoy an adult beverage while the little ones ran around. My only complaint was that the smaller of the two bathrooms had minimal storage space--a pedestal sink, and the shelves were full of towels (hard to complain about plenty of extras!). -- We did manage to lock ourselves out of each bathroom one time. I called the owner who dispatched someone who came immediately and was able to open the door using a credit card. When the same thing happened with the other bathroom door, we were successful in opening the door on our own using the credit card technique. I am not sure how both bathroom doors seemingly locked themselves, but maybe it's time to change them.

I also want to say THANK YOU to the owner for accommodating our parking needs. It was an unexpected bonus.

Owner's Response: Corinne, Thank you so much for your kind words and we will definitely look into why/how the push button bed/bath locks stuck on you. We use Schlage products as we find them to be most reliable but need to find out why they may have stuck on you. We hope to see you again and will make sure we get those push button locks inside the house looked at. Thank you for letting us know.

Perfect location and patio

We had a great time. Jamie was awesome and very flexible with everything. The patio is a perfect place to relax after a fun day of walking around Charleston. The house is very centrally located so it's easy to walk everywhere. Thanks for a great time!
