"Great value for the room and location. The hosts are very responsive, and the check-in process is very simple. Would stay here again!" - Drew

This unique suite is one of a kind in The Ashley in downtown Charleston. The suite is complete with a high-end King-size bed, a dresser, vintage furnishings and access to the private bathroom. It is located on the first floor with an exterior entrance near the parking lot.

After a long day of walking, shopping and eating in Charleston, a hot and steamy shower in the cavernous bathroom is the ideal way to end the day. This newly modernized bathroom has a modern walk-in shower behind glass doors with rainshower features and basic essentials.

The suite has a mini-refrigerator and Nespresso coffee maker with coffee pods and local tea. These essential appliances make it painless to brew a cup of coffee to appreciate on the patio, or store leftovers from a close by cafe or restaurant.

You also have access to the shared great room, a sun-filled lounge that is a welcoming space to meet new friends. Combining modern style and antique accents, it features an original ornate fireplace, wood floors, antique light fixtures and handcrafted furnishings.

The sunny, shared patio offers padded outdoor furnishings and unobstructed vistas of the city streets below. This is a great place to read, sip coffee, people watch, work on your laptop, or meet new people. Swing by one of the local eateries and bring your lunch back to the patio to savor, or sit in the sun and enjoy the view.

For toiletries - think hotel amenities. We provide shampoo, conditioner, body wash, toilet paper, coffee, cream and sugar, beach towels, bug spray, and sunscreen.

Booking the best vacation home experience:

When to visit Charleston & When to reserve a Charleston area rental home:

  • Summer months are the most expensive season in coastal SC. Book your rental home in the Fall or Spring to get the benefit of warm weather while saving money and avoiding crowds.
  • In the Charleston area area, The sooner you can book a rental home, the better your selection will be. The best rental properties are booked very early. Booking your vacation property up to twelve months before your vacation dates is recommended. Holiday gatherings are excellent times to plan and reserve your vacation home.
  • Some property management companies offer special rates for active duty military and veterans. Remember to ask your property manager if special offers are available for your family.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners typically offer customers an option to purchase vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which usually will cost you anywhere between 1% - 5% of the booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any missed days as a result of medical-related catastrophes or weather, as well as hurricane evacuation charges, such as an unexpected hotel overnight or extra gas expenses. Trip insurance can be a a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for program terms and fees.
  • Many management companies and vacation rental houses supply Charleston area area visitors guide magazines which will include special deals, either offered directly by local companies, or by way of a partnership between the management company and the business itself. You can also find visitors guide and coupon books at local shops and grocery stores.

Make a plan and choose your prefectrental home:

  • Begin by choosing your trip dates and a maximum budget.
  • Decide how many bedrooms and the bed configuration your family needs. Speakeasy Suite in Historic B&B with Secret Lounge has 1 bedrooms and 1 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our vacation rental search.
  • Precise information regarding bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is usually available online. If not, email the property management company before reserving the rental. Remember that most listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which typically includes pull-out couches and bunk beds. You'll need to determine what configuration is right for your trip.
  • If there's a particular Charleston area attraction you simply love, keep an eye out for homes that are either close by, or those that cater to your desires.
  • Proper accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for guests with disabilities. Confirm all necessary amenities are available before reserving a rental
  • If your group is bringing pets, filter your search for a pet-friendly property. Get information on breed, weight, and type restrictions. Some property managers charge pet deposits and fees.

Considerations for your stay:

  • Add the owner's phone number to your smartphone. Understand and take a copy of arrival/departure procedures.
  • During arrival, make note of any issues with the rental property and immediately alert the host. Record all correspondence in case a dispute arises.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a fireplace, television set or thermostat. Contact your owner. They are there to help! A brief phone call prevents many problems.
  • Respect your neighbors. Frequently, surrounding homes are filled by local residents. Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking policies reduces conflict and allows everyone to enjoy their day.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local! Locals can usually point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to get the best breakfast in town, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for fine dining?
  • Lock your rental property while you're gone! Don't let thieves ruin your vacation.
  • Don't leave anything behind! Before departing, take a walk through the rental property to reconfirm you've collected all belongings. Re-check bathrooms, garages, and back yards for hidden items. Clean the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Record a video to document the condition of the property.
  • Did your group have a great stay? Most rental home management companies make it easy for travelers to provide reviews. If your rental and/or host was terrific, they would love to hear about it. If anything was inoperable and they failed to address it in a reasonable manner, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make it a point as part of your feedback.
