Overview

About the property

1 Bed 1 Bath In The Heart Of Historic Donwtown Charleston

Enjoy the convenience of being close to everything! Park your car, you don't need it. Enjoy the world famous husk restaurant (our neighbor) or take a short stroll to battery park. We are located in the heart of the attractions with countless shops, restaurants, coffee shops, and tourist sites within walking distance... Real walking distance, not miles, but blocks. Our home is centrally located in the historic district very close to intersection of queen st. And king st. Which puts you in the middle of the action. Want to go further? Hop on the provided bikes and access the distant reaches of the city. It's all close.

I don't mind admitting it, we are spoiled. When we escape to our home in charleston, we want the best! We insisted on high quality linens and super comfortable mattresses. I trust you will find everything in the house to be brand new and of high quality, because it is. Enjoy our oasis and spoil yourself!

You will not be disappointed.

About Fiske Hopkins

Fiske and Katie Hopkins along with our two young girls. We love to visit Charleston every opportunity we have.

Fiske Hopkins purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Fiske Hopkins chose Historic Old City

We love Charleston. It's so exciting! We like the idea of parking our car and using our two feet to get everywhere we need. We love the history of our home and the immediate area. From the local farmers market on Saturday mornings with our family to the evening strolls and fine dining at night Charleston is truly full of charm!

What makes this apartment unique

Location, location, location. The oldest grocery in charleston, queen st. Grocery, is located across the street. Wake up and grab a cup of fresh coffee or stop in for the cuban at lunch. We are less than 2 blocks away from the infamous husk restaurant. Here, we are a short walking distance to everywhere you want to be.

Beautiful, great location, and amazing owners!

  • 5 of 5

After another HomeAway owner cancelled our booking 11 days before our wedding in Charleston, Fiske jumped in and saved the day. We were able to rebook at this property, and we ABSOLUTELY LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT IT. We would most definitely stay here again. The location is unmatched and super nice. (We have been to Charleston and stayed in HomeAway places 3 times in the last year.) I would definitely recommend this property!

Good Communication During Difficult Times

  • 5 of 5

This is a review only for the communications I had with the owner leading up to our reservation, as we were unable to visit Charleston as planned. We had intended to stay at the apartment but were unable to travel to South Carolina due to hurricane related storms and flooding. The owner was very responsive and helped us navigate a very difficult situation. I hope to visit Charleston soon!

Quaint, historic apartment in an old Charleston home. Within walking distance of everything!

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic stay. There were just two of us and it was just the right amount of space. Only suggestion for improvement would be a dresser to store some clothes, along with a a supply of clothes hangers (only two were supplied). Overall a great stay! We would definitely come back and stay again.

Felt like I was at home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay in Charleston. The location was terrific, we walked most everywhere in the city from here. The rooms were clean and comfortable and being August in Charleston, the air conditioners worked overtime but kept it cool. The condenser is right outside the bedroom so it can be loud but it never bothered us. We stayed a week and other than the kitchen having limited cooking pieces, we were able to save money eating in a few nights. The Queen Street Grocery is directly across the street and we stopped there many times for food from this funky, hip place. There was only two of us and the size was perfect, could be a bit tight if there were more people staying.

Unbeatable location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 4 adults and 1 baby. We booked another property through this host and it was a double booking. He was kind enough to offer 2 adjacent 1 bedroom apartments to us for the same price.

Both apartments had the classic Charleston charm with updated amenities. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the location was unbeatable!

Several people made comments about the noise level so I was hesitant traveling with my 9 month old son. In my opinion, the noise level was more than tolerable with the fantastic proximity to ALL of the things downtown Charleston has to offer. (Taking other reviews into account we did bring a white noise machine for sleeping)

We were able to take the bikes on a self-guided tour of Battery Park and other historical sites. Highly recommend this to everyone.

The only minor issue with the apartments was the cooling. Traveling in Charleston in mid-July, we were prepared to battle the heat but there were several times the apartment was up to 80 degrees inside. This was uncomfortable. The host does make note that the heating and cooling of the nineteenth century home is not as efficient as modern day. This in no way would keep us from returning to stay at this property again.
