The apartment is entered from the second floor piazza overlooking historic rooftops, set in the back, away from any street noise. The living/kitchen space combines a handsome new kitchen that opens into a comfortable, striking living room. It has a brand new West Elm queen couch sleeper with high end gel bed. There are two matching club chairs, one more chair, and an eating counter with stools. The granite counter opens onto the brand new kitchen with granite counter tops, all new stainless steel appliances (stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, sink and disposal, microwave) and a roomy pantry. Over the counter is a inch flat screen tv. Throughout the apartment you will savor the gorgeous wood floors.

The three designer BEDROOMS have full closets and chests of drawers and dressing tables, bedside tables and reading lamps. One bedroom has a new king bed and the other two rooms have new queen size beds. The two bathrooms are conveniently accessed and have new granite counters, new sinks and granite floors. Tucked into one bathroom is a stack washer/dryer

In one bedroom is a drop leaf antique mahogany table that can comfortably be set up for more formal dining in the living room and 6 splendid dining room chairs that complete the extravagant setting.

The piazza is a typical beautiful Charleston feature and helps give our guests a true sense of being a "Charlestonian". We have seating for 6 where you can appreciate your morning coffee or afternoon drink after exploring the cozy streets, stores and eateries.

There is complimentary PARKING for 1 car and, for a fee, parking for a second car.

On the first floor of this building is a freshly refreshed 2 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment and next door to these apartments is another Vacation Rental By Owner by the same owner with 3 bedrooms. The three units combine to make an ideal setting for a bigger group. The office of our property manager, Jamie, is in this building. She always receives rave reviews for her help in resolving your traveling issues. She will arrange your parking pass and can help you find a chef or book a fishing or sailing excursion. Just ask!

This apartment is fresh, cozy, comfortable and tasteful. It has been inspired by one of the best, authentic Charleston designers.

This impressive three bedroom completely remodeled apartment is appealingly located in the newly designated legal "short term overlay" for legal short term rental in Charleston. Within the overlay, this property is in the southernmost part of that area which means it is as close as you can legally be to the South of Broad/Calhoun St historic districts without an owner present. Be sure to study the map because not all "historic" properties are so well located.

In addition, some properties in the overlay are new construction. When visiting historic Charleston, why would you want to stay in a new condo when you can stay in a "Carolopolis" award winning historic building which has been freshly updated with all the modern amenities?

Slightly north of the College of Charleston on historic St. Philip Street this appealing apartment is the ideal base to enjoy an enchanting Charleston experience. Charleston is like Rome, Italy in that most of the notable monuments and historic details are found in a fairly contained area. You can literally walk from the apartment to the southernmost extremes of the Historic District in under 30 mins.. This journey will take you through the Historic King Street District and the neighborhoods of Cannonborough, Elliottborough, Radcliffborough, Harleston Village and finally South of Broad until you reach the Battery itself.

Go east one block and you are on King Street, the home of designer stores, eclectic stores, antiques stores and a host of other fascinating stores as well as nationally acclaimed eateries. Upper King is the new center of Charleston's acclaimed restaurant and nighttime life. A recent survey of the "essential 18 Charleston Eateries" has seven of their eateries (Hominy Grille, Indago, The Grocery, The Macintosh, The Ordinary, Two Boroughs Larder, Xiao Bao Biscuit) within four blocks of the apartment.


This property of one of a group of properties called St Philip Square. It is possible to rent multiple properties if you have a wedding or corporate group or a family reunion. The other properties are: Vacation Rental By Owner #1351757 (2 bedroom, 2 bath in this same building); Vacation Rental By Owner #56755 (a stand alone bungalow next door with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths) and Vacation Rental By Owner #1446527 (3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 doors away). We are also bringing on numerous more units (some bigger, some smaller) in the same area in the spring, so check back if you don’t find what meets your needs.
If you are visiting in Charleston and need to sleep from 2 to 72 people...in award winning historic properties...handsomely renovated with stunning decor and parking, St Philip Square is your answer!

You need to look carefully to realize our location is noticeably closer to South of Broad, with substantial historic buildings, with appeal and character not possible in new construction, in a community setting where groups can gather, in an area where it's possible to rent without the owner present, in properties that sparkle with stunning remodel and striking decor. We have a unique offering for wedding groups, family get-togethers, business retreats, friends traveling together, honeymooners, anniversary celebrants or families with kids.

St Philip Square offers 8 properties within a "square" that opens onto a shared parking area. Each apartment is a separate unit with unique characteristics. It is the ideal opportunity for groups of all sizes to organize a joint rental but each apartment is separate and is its own place. The vrbo numbers for the other properties are:
1531369 1446527. 1994546. 1994547 1994550
1351757. 1662029. 834186. 567555. 467877
1994548 1994549
(You might have to put ha at the end. Or vr.)
If you put these numbers into a Vacation Rental By Owner search without dates you will be able to view each listing.

We strongly advise during the month of September particularly, and some into October that you purchase trip insurance. It is the peak of hurricane season in our area. The optional trip insurance offered through Vacation Rental By Owner would cover any weather related cancellation. We do not offer refunds or date changes for any reason outside the cancellation period.

Booking the best vacation home experience:

Find your perfect rental home:

  • In the Charleston area area, The earlier you can reserve a vacation home, the easier your search will be. The best vacation rentals are reserved early. Reserving your rental home up to 12 months before your vacation is recommended. Holiday gatherings are excellent times to search for and reserve your vacation home.
  • Booking your Charleston area vacation rental in Spring or Fall is a good way to save on your vacation rental. Rates are lower, and you'll find a larger selection of desirable properties. Many vacationers use this strategy to reserve larger homes, or to book a beach front vacation rental that would otherwise be unaffordable during the high season.
  • Some hosts and property managers offer special rates for active duty military and veterans. It's always a good idea to check with your property manager to see if rate reductions are available for your family.
  • Property managers often offer guests an option to purchase vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which commonly will cost you between 1% - 5% of the booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for missed days as a result of medical-related issues or weather, as well as ensuing additional evacuation charges, such as an unexpected hotel overnight or additional gas expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your property manager for additional information.
  • Often, management companies and vacation rental houses supply Charleston area area travel guides which often include coupons, either offered directly by local businesses, or by way of a partnership between the management company and the business itself. You can also find Charleston area area magazine and coupon books at local shops and grocery stores.

Use filters to narrow your search:

  • To start, have your family agree to date ranges and a spending budget.
  • Determine how many beds and the bed configuration your group needs. (8D) Alexander Wilson House at St. Philip Square has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
  • Precise descriptions of bedrooms and bed types is normally accessible online. If you don't see them listed, email the property owner before you book your rental. Remember that most listings specify the max. guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds. You will need to work out what configuration is optimal for your family.
  • Some rentals allow pets, but some don't. Allowable types of family pet, size and breeds may be restricted, and additional charges may apply. Ask the owner about your furry family members before booking.
  • Visiting for a single event? Use a map search to browse nearby properties.
  • Proper accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for persons with disabilities. Confirm all required amenities are available and included before reserving a rental.

Have a fantastic stay:

  • Add the host's contact info to your smartphone. Take a copy of arrival/departure procedures.
  • Ask questions. You may want instructions for a fireplace, A/V setup or coffee maker. Contact your owner. They are there to help! A brief text message prevents many issues.
  • Lock your rental while you are out. Protect your property!
  • To make certain that damages aren't attributed to your family's stay, make a record of any problem areas upon your arrival. Speak to the host right away to report any damages. If there is a dispute, having the recorded problems and contact attempts will be very helpful.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like troublesome vacationers disrupting your peace and quiet. Employ the golden rule for common sense. Happy residents may even recommend great restaurants and places you would have not otherwise known about!
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Local residents can often help. Who better to ask where to launch your kayaks, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for shopping?
  • Don't leave anything behind! Just before departing, take a walk through the rental to confirm you've collected all of your things. Make sure to check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden belongings. Clean out the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Inspect the rental a final time and keep an eye out for damage. We advise inspecting the property with the property manager whenever you can. If the manager isn't available, ensure that you take pictures of the rental to record its condition.
  • Did your family have a wonderful time? Most rental managers make it easy for guests to provide comments. If your rental and/or property management company was wonderful, they always love to hear your praise. If anything was defective and they failed to correct it reasonably, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make a note as part of your feedback.
