One short block to historic downtown Charleston’s bustling King Street, our Carolopolis Award winning John Bulow House was build in the late 1800’s before undergoing a full remodel in 1996. Carefully marrying new with nostalgia, we lovingly maintained historic details while incorporating modern amenities.
With room for the family or group travelers, our second-floor A3 apartment features three bedrooms and two full baths. Enter through the gathering space featuring professional decor and, if of interest, a queen-sized couch bed.
The first bedroom homes a queen bed and connects to the living room but is afforded privacy with two locking double doors. The front bathroom maximizes modest space with a European shower complete with rain shower-head.
The second bedroom down the hall has a cavernous king bed with the third bedroom close by and its queen bed. The back two bedrooms are closest to the second bathroom with a roomy walk-in shower.
Step outside onto your appealing porch or appreciate an evening beverage in our private, freshly revamped courtyard.
As our guest, you’ll be given convenient parking and a delightfully unique space to call your own during your Charleston hideaway that is mere steps away from all that historic downtown has to offer.

Tips to get the very best rental home experience:
Sticking to your budget:
- Reserve your rental as early as possible. Rental schedules often open twelve months in advance (or in September just after Summertime ends). Many groups reserve their Summer rentals during Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Eve gatherings. Book before these holidays for best selection.
- Summer is high season in the Charleston area area. Booking in the Spring or Fall is our best tip for saving money on your vacation rental. Rates are lower, and you'll find a better selection of suitable properties. Many vacationers use this method to reserve larger homes, or to reserve a beach front vacation rental that would otherwise be unaffordable during the Summer. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a Charleston area vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday on the coast? Christmas, Thanksgiving, and New Years Eve are great times to gather with friends and family at the beach.
- Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may be qualified for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property manager if your family qualifies for a price reduction or discount.
- Booking websites typically offer customers an option to add vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which usually will cost you 1% - 5% of the base stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for missed trip time as a result of personal medical-related issues or weather, as well as ensuing additional evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected hotel overnight or extra fuel expenses. Trip insurance might be a a life-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask the property owner for specifics.
- Find a copy of your local Charleston area area magazine when you arrive at the rental property. If your rental home doesn't have one, you can find them at local shops and fuel stations. In addition to great information, visitor guide magazines have money saving offers on local attractions, tours, restaurants, and shops.
Make a plan and choose your Charleston area rental:
- Start by choosing your potential vacation weeks and a spending budget.
- Decide how many bedrooms and the configuration your family requires. (A3) John Bulow House at St. Philip Square has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our search.
- Precise information about bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is almost always available online. If not, reach out to the host before you reserve the vacation home. Remember that most properties list the max. guest capacity, which usually includes pull out couches in living rooms.
- Some rentals allow pets, and some do not. Allowable types of pet, size and breeds may be restricted, and added fees may apply. Ask the host about allowable pet guidelines before booking.
- If there's a particular Charleston area beach you crave, keep an eye out for homes that are either near by, or those that cater to your requirements.
- Suitable accessibility can make or ruin a vacation for those with limited mobility. Confirm all necessary amenities are included before reserving a rental.
- Store the manager's information in your smartphone and wallet.
- Ask questions. You may need instructions for a garage door opener, television set or WIFI setup. Contact your owner. They are there to help! A brief phone call prevents lots of concerns.
- Ensure you protect the owner (and your things!) by locking the property when you are away, just like you would back home.
- During check-in, record any issues with the rental property and immediately alert the owner. Keep records of all correspondence just in case a dispute arises.
- Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking restrictions can make a stay significantly more pleasurable. You will increase your chance to make local friends, and resident neighbors are usually an excellent source for finding the best local restaurants, beaches, and hangouts.
- Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Neighbors can typically point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to enjoy a steak with a view, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for crabbing?
- Re-check the rental property to confirm that you've packed all of your belongings on check-out day. Make sure to check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden belongings. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
- Go through the rental one final time and scan for any damage. We suggest walking through with the host whenever you can (often this isn't possible). If the host isn't available, ensure that you take photos of the property to record its condition at check-out.
- Did your group have a terrific time? Most rental home management companies make it easy for guests to provide reviews. If your rental property and/or property management company was wonderful, they will likely appreciate your kind words. If anything was out of order and they failed to fix it within reason, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make a note as part of your comments.
