About the property

1 Bed 1 Bath In The Heart Of Historic Downtown Charleston

njoy the convenience of being close to everything! Park your car, you won'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 what gives Charleston its charm with countless shops, restaurants, parks, and tourist sites all within walking distance... real walking distance...not miles-- 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. Interested in going more than a few blocks? Hop on the bikes provided and access the distant reaches of the city. It's all close. Done exploring for the day? Settle in bed to our high quality linens and super comfortable mattresses. Our family wants it comfortable and clean, and that's what you will get. Make it home!

Settle in, spread out, and stay a while...and then come back for more!

Why Katie Hopkins chose Historic Old City

We love Charleston. It is dripping with southern charm...and the food ain't bad either! The best part...park your car because you can explore this beautiful city on foot, that way you won't miss a thing!

What makes this apartment unique

Location, Location, Location. The oldest Grocery Store 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. Less than 2 blocks away from Husk, y'all really, we are a SHORT walking distance to everywhere you want to be.

Great place. Great location. Great time

This place was perfectly located. Queen St grocery across the street. Everything else just blocks away. Grab one of the bikes and you can get anywhere downtown. Charleston's cool.

Queen Street

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was everything we needed. Big enough for the two of us and so very comfortable. We loved the front porch where we sat and had our morning coffee and our late evening rest. It was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Best of all it was central to all the action but in a quiet neighborhood. We loved the bikes and found our way around so easy. The air conditioning was awesome and the store across the street was so convenient. The only negative was the noise from the upstairs can hear them coming and going and walking around their apt. Not much you can do with the hardwood floors. All in all we would rent again on our next trip to beautiful Charleston!

In need of major work

  • 2 of 5

The property is centrally located however it is in need of major work. There is mold and ceiling repair badly needed. The bathroom sink and shower did not drain at ALL we had to purchase Draino to be able to shower and use the sink. The dryer was broken which I discovered after I did a load of wash and the hair dryer was broken so I had to go buy one after I had inquired whether there was one on site. The wall plugs in two places of the Living room didn’t work when I tried to use them. And the fan remote for the living room was broken so we could not adjust the light or fan speed. For the price per night this place was not nice.

Wonderful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a lovely stay here. Walking distance to everything, across from an adorable little cafe, and dog friendly! We loved sitting on the front porch and watching Charleston go by. High end sheets, towels and a great shower. Pretty much exactly what we wanted!
