19 Broad is historic downtown Charleston's finest rental accommodation, with a location second to none — perfect for couples, families and business travelers who seek an unparalleled location for access to all Historic Charleston has to offer without the expense of a hotel room.  Normandy Farm Artisan Bakery occupies the first floor and Oak Steakhouse is next door, affording guests direct access to an authentic European-style bakery and fine dining steakhouse restaurant.

Our charming circa 1794 property is located at the crux of the French Quarter and historic Charlestowne neighborhoods, within one block of the best shopping, dining, history and architecture in Charleston.  19 Broad features original Charleston brick hearths and heart pine floors, period millwork, original moulding and spacious rooms with high ceilings.

Our guest rooms feature quality home furniture, bathrooms with tile floors and showers, social spaces, cooking and dining spaces, complimentary WiFi and basic cable TV. The entire property can hold ten guests, but can also be subdivided in order to accommodate multiple smaller parties entirely independent from one another.

Very nice place and great location!

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time in Charleston and we had an amazing time. This place was walking distance to all of the major restaurants and attractions. We only had to Uber to the port for the Fort Sumter tour (around $6 or $7) and to Folly Beach (around $15-$20). The only negative thing I have to say about our stay was the construction on the street below starting between 6am-7am Thursday-Sunday. Obviously not the owners fault, but it was something we were not expecting.
