About the Property
Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)
So, you have made the decision to visit Charleston. Instead of hotel room, or historic inn, why not have your very own luxury apartment in one of Charleston’s historic grand homes for less than you might otherwise pay?
Only a block from White Point Gardens and Charleston’s historic battery, this charming lodging has everything you want to enjoy a truly enchanting Charleston experience. It is located on the first floor of a grand four story house (circa 1795) in Charleston’s most prestigious residential neighborhood, and yet you can still comfortably walk to the city’s famous historic attractions: museums, historic homes, famous churches, designer shopping, and fabulous restaurants. In fact, in a recent USA today ranking, seven of the top ten Charleston restaurants a located within six blocks this listing.
The apartment opens onto a large formal garden with a private entrance. This is a place to not only enjoy a special weekend, but also is a place that has the space and accommodations to ensure a gracious long term experience. The unit consists of a large living room (20 x 20), equally large bedroom, separate dining area, fully equipped gourmet kitchen, modern bath room, laundry facilities, and charming outdoor dining area nestled in the garden under ancient pittosporum and pomegranate trees. The interior reflects and complements the home’s historic character. The bedroom and living rooms feature full size fireplaces with beautiful classic mantels, wainscoting and chair rails, dentil molding on the ceilings and wide heart pine flooring. The furniture is a mixture of antiques and old period reproductions interspaced with comfortable and tastefully upholstered pieces, interesting lighting and good artwork. The bed is a wonderful four poster carved rice bed with a queen size Temperpedic mattress. The large gourmet kitchen features full size modern appliances, wonderfully spacious tile counter tops accented with Portuguese tile backsplash, extensive cabinet work stocked with high quality kitchen utensils, serving pieces, china, place mats, and other amenities of modern living. The bath area features slate tiles, two separate sinks, marble shower, and separated water closet area.
The large garden is source of unending delight. Entering from the street through your private gateway you experience a sense of peace, quiet and beauty as you make your way from the gate over the bricked patio area deeper into the garden. The main garden opens to two large oval spaced planting areas with grass centers flanked by deep planting beds containing flowering plants and evergreen bushes which provide color and fragrance as the seasons evolve. A vine covered arched passage with seating for six separates the two oval areas. A shallow reflecting pool and fountain provide accent and soft sounds to this pleasing area. The garden is shared with the owners who live on the above floors.
An automobile is not necessary to experience most of the city’s better known attractions. Parking directly in front of the apartment is limited to two hours by the city. However there is unlimited on street parking less than fifty feet to the west.
The electronic equipment includes WiFi computer connections, cable HDTVs in both the living room and bed room, IPhone capable alarm w/speaker, ice maker, microwave, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, and coffee makers. The apartment has its own climate control thermostats and is completely self-contained.
The bath and bedroom are stocked with high quality linens and towels. The kitchen is stocked with great assortment of spices, and staples such as olive oil, various vinegars, and sugar for your convenience.
The City of Charleston regulates and limits accommodations in the Old Historic Area. While this is a new listing to VRBO, the apartment has been properly licensed for B&B short term accommodations for over twenty years. This is not a commercial area or property and is best suited for people who are seeking a quiet and elegant refuge.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
Paying with a credit card on VRBO protects your payment for up to $10,000 against listing fraud. We recommend completing your booking on VRBO.Learn more

Located in one of the most prestigious neighborhoods in downtown Charleston, this beautifully furnished downtown apartment is near the pulse of most activities offered in Charleston. Our beautiful gardens may entice you to stay home for the day but walking, hiring a pedi-cab or using one of the rate controlled cabs in the downtown area will get you anywhere you need to go in a fun way.
Year Purchased: 1978
About: We are a retired couple who raised our 3 children in this house. In 2001 we sailed our boat to Europe. We now spend part of the year on our boat in Europe and the other part of the year in Charleston. We have so much space in our home that we enjoy offering some of the space for rent as a B&B (no breakfast).
