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.

A small piece of heaven in a big world

  • 5 of 5

We rented this sweet little place to stay in for our daughter's wedding. Not one of the four of us who stayed here had one complaint. We also had two small yorkies with us and it was perfect for them as well. Everything was clean, plenty of towels, the kitchen had everything we needed, all of the beds were comfortable and it was very quiet. Our favorite was the patio with the table, umbrella, and six chairs. It was a great place to unwind after the busy days. Very close walking to lots of restaurants. Shopping and historical areas were a little farther walk but nothing that was unmanageable. Thank you so much for making our stay in Charleston so wonderful. We absolutely recommend this wonderful unit and will be staying here again.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this house twice now and it couldn't be more perfect! The location is great, you can either walk or take your bike. My truck never left the driveway. The courtyard is great for your early morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. We are hoping to stay again next year! Laurie Ann, New Jersey

Great place to stay while in Charleston

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights here while in town for a family wedding. The house was comfortable and homey. We hosted a small dinner party and enjoyed the well supplied kitchen and spent time on the patio. Quiet comfortable bedrooms and good bathrooms. I recommend this rental!

Beautiful Home and Courtyard

  • 5 of 5

This home is in a great location, we didn't have a car, we walked and used Uber to get around. The courtyard is great, nice to have coffee in the morning and lunch or dinner. The three bedrooms and two full baths are very comfortable, we had three people each utilizing their own bedroom. The Kitchen and Living Room are very comfortable and easy to navigate. The decor is beautiful. We enjoyed working with the host, they answered our questions and gave recommendations. They were very helpful to us during our stay. I would recommend this property highly.

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.
