* Parking for this unit is supplied in the rental rate, but is located across the street from the rental in a lot we lease from a neighbor, not on site. Parking on site is for neighboring rental units.
* This apartment requires visitors to access from the spiral staircase pictured here. This is the only access to the rental.
* The shower includes an antique claw-foot "mini" tub (4.5 feet), that we salvaged locally. The tub/shower includes a grab bar and non-slip tred -- however, this is not just right for anyone with mobility concerns.
*There is an additional unit beneath this rental in the same home, which sleeps 3 visitors. If you happen to be traveling with a bigger event, we'd be excstatic to coordinate a whole home rental to accommodate 5.
* All Charleston homes in the historic footprint of the city - which this rental falls into - must abide by strict modernization mandates. As such all of our units must feature single pane glass to reflect the look and feel of the original home dating back to the 1800s. As such, noise does travel and we ask that all visitors who rent from us here and at our units adjacent please be respectful of neighbors at all times and especially watch noise levels when coming and going after 10 p.m. for the appreciation of all visitors.
* Absolutely no events will be tolerated.
Money Saving Strategies

Look for these guides and coupon books, because this allows travelers to experience the very same wonderful activities at a possibly considerable discounted.
- In a position to modify your trip dates? The off-peak shoulder seasons may offer phenomenal rates on weekly rental properties.
- Plenty of property management companies and owners offer special discounts for active and veteran men and women of the US Military, or returning vacationers to the same property. Make sure to confirm with property management company to see if your vacationing group qualifies for a discounted price.
- Some rentals are basically catered to specific customers, whether it is downtown rentals with pier passes, city-center homes with nearby access to night life or waterfront homes that have their own kiteboarding launching areas.

How to Book a Vacation Home
Many people are shocked to discover the number of rental homes are located in their area of interest. With such a big selection, renters are sure to find a property which matches their expectations and spending plan.
Nearly all rental homes in Charleston area are privately owned and many are represented by experienced local property management companies. Property management companies leverage scale, equipment and knowledge to provide convenient operational management on behalf of the property owner..
Seasoned Charleston area vacationers have identified a few tips and tricks over the years when it comes to renting vacation rentals, however most newcomers will be happy to learn that many of these "strategies" are in plain sight, if you understand how to search.
Searching for and reserving the perfect vacation property:
Before you decide to book "1 BR/BA KING - Historic Renovation, 5 Min to King", go through our brief collection of things to consider.
The Sooner You Start, The Better The Selection
Charleston area rental homes book many months (and up to a year) in advance. For the greatest selection, start your planning and search 6-12 months prior to your trip. Many families choose to start their search over Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year holiday gatherings.
Pick a Village and Time
Start by determining which specific area of Charleston area you want to browse, and the approximate trip dates.
How Many Bedrooms?
Establish who is joining, and how many/what particular bedroom configuration you will need. Remember that that a lot of homes advertise maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in the living area. You'll need to determine what is most appropriate for the family. Specific descriptions of bedrooms and beds are usually available on the internet. If not, communicate with the property manager before you reserve the home.
Commit to a Budget
The majority of rental homes are presented with a price range. Determine the rate for your preferred week. It may be at the top end of the range. Make sure that you get cost-sharing commitments from friends and family before reserving a costly rental. One individual in your group needs to be in charge of getting contributions and accepting responsibility for the entire rental payment at time of booking.
Make a List of "Preferences" and "Needs"
What home features is the group interested in? Do you simply desire a home with a swimming pool, hot tub or beach volleyball court? Would you like to be away from it all, or near a city setting? Are items like beach chairs, gas grills, umbrellas, carts or coolers available and included in your rental charge? Gather a list of "needs and wants" from your party to help narrow your search to the most appropriate home.
Accessibility and Special Issues to consider
Proper access could make or break a visit for the less-mobile. If wheel chair entry, elevators, pool lifts or other special devices are required, include that into your search. Nearly all vacation home listings include a list of amenities.
Go ahead and Take the Dog
Make sure to include your pets. Pet policies are different at each rental. Study descriptions thoroughly. Make certain to read descriptions and contracts carefully. Charges may apply when animals are added. If in doubt, ask the property owner and get it in writing.
Searching the Internet
. Besides Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Charleston area local vacation rentals" for local property management companies. Local agencies often times have an exclusive assortment of rentals daily and weekly.
Re-read the description to ensure that the rental home has everything that you need. If something is missing, the vacation rental management company may know of comparable properties that fit your style and budget..
Some property owners will negotiate rates, and some will not. If they are hesitant to budge on a peak-season week, try getting an additional night. Off-peak season offers your best chance to negotiate a lower rate.
Study The Contract
You will have to know which services are included:
- WIFI Access
- Phone service
- Pool and hot tub heating
- Pay Per View Movies
- Daily Cleaning (If Available)
- Trash collection
- Maintenance (get a phone number)
- Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
- Parking Fees
Make sure your quote includes all taxes and fees.
Ensure that you be aware of the cancellation policy before reserving. You will probably be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance, which generally costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of your base rental cost, provides travellers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental property costs) for any days missed a result of personal medical related emergencies or storms, as well as hurricane evacuation costs, such as a unanticipated hotel stay or extra gas.
Complete the Booking
Once you think you've found "the one", begin the booking process. You will likely have to submit a security deposit at time of booking.
Get Contact Details
Put the property manager's contact info into your smartphone and wallet for convenient access to answers during your trip.
Good job on reserving your vacation rental! You're on the way to a fabulous vacation!
During your Stay
- Take notes of any problems right after you arrive. If you find property damage, or if fixes are required contact the property manager right away. If there is a dispute about legal responsibility later, having the recorded problems and communication attempts will probably be useful.
- If you have any ambiguity about parking, policies of the property, property access, pool operation, etc... we advise you ask the rental manager immediately. A phone call can save several hours of hassle.
- Please be respectful of the local community. . Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking rules can make a trip significantly more relaxing.
- Ask a local. Locals can often point you in the right direction.
- Enjoy your stay! Be sure to protect the owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the vacation rental locked up while you are away, just like you would at home.
At the end of your stay
- Always make sure that you've packed everything. Examine drawers, bath cupboards and wardrobes.
- Once everything is out, perform a walk-through of the rental to make sure that no property damage occurred in the course of your stay. Whenever possible, do this walk-out assessment with the property owner present. If the property owner is not available, you'll want to take photos of the property to record its condition.
- Did you have an enjoyable time? Most property management companies and rental search sites permit renters to provide comments. If your property and/or property manager was outstanding, they'll appreciate your recommendations. If anything went wrong, we suggest being understanding but straightforward with regards to your experience. The best property owners and managers will work hard to rectify the issue.
Learn and Improve
Hold a meeting with your travel companions. How did they feel about the rental home? If everything was perfect, next year's family vacation planning will be simple. If not, you've acquired invaluable rental search experience to help with the next search.
