*NOTE* While being close to the action is one of the best things about the property, it can get noisy at times. To counteract the noise we have installed custom sound proofing window inserts (at end of April 2017) to reduce the noise by 75%. We also provide sleep machines in the both bedrooms, for those that are super light sleepers. The fire department is located right next door. We enjoy the extra security of having them, but they do run the siren briefly when they pull out of the station. With our new sound proof window inserts, the sound of the firetruck is minimal - however even before the inserts we never had any guest complaints about the sound of the fire trucks. So now we have the best of both worlds - a charming apt located in the heart of Charleston night life, and a cozy interior buffered from the street noise.

The Cannonborough neighborhood is one of the most trendiest places in the city. Bordering the midtown section of King Street referred to as "Upper King" the neighborhood extends to the west. Mainly consisting of restored 19th century homes, the borough also offers a variety of local dining hot spots including Hominy Grill, Two Boroughs Larder, Xiao Bao Biscuit, The Grocery, Five Loaves Cafe, Cannon Green, and many more while maintaining the neighborhood feel.
Staying downtown means that you can walk/bike to just about anywhere you want to go. There are two bike rental shops half a block from the property. There is a CARTA bus stop on our block of Cannon St. Hailing a taxi on the street is difficult in Charleston, but there are lots of options for companies that you can call. Also, Uber is very popular and frequently used downtown. If you have more than 2 cars to park, you can use the public parking garage on King Street only a block away.
