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 (Hominy 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 stand-alone home, set back from the street with an off street parking place. It is perfect for a family or friends traveling together.
A spacious living room furnished with two new West Elm sofas (one is a sofa-sleeper with high end gel mattress), chairs, HDTV, charming bar provides 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 has 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 the other has a shower only. The baths have ample storage for your personal effects. High quality linens and towels are provided.

We also advise during the month of September particularly, and some into October, that you purchase the trip protection insurance. It is the peak of hurricane season in our area. The optional trip insurance offered through VRBO would cover any cancellation. We do not offer refunds or date changes for any reason.
Also please note that when booking now or making payment we prefer "e" check as it is free for you and for us to use. If you choose the credit card option, then VRBO/HomeAway charges 2.9% on all monies run through Credit and that fee will be taken from your security deposit before return of the deposit since we do offer a free option. It is your choice. Please ask Jamie if you have any questions at all.
