About this Property

  • 1 Bathrooms
  • Apartment

A luxury stay in a piece of history, The Cookhouse is a charming and opulent option located in Charleston’s Garden District near Wragg Mall and its live oaks and fountain, the Charleston Museum, the Visitors’ Center, Marion Square’s Saturday Farmers’ and Crafts Market, two historic mansions open to the public (the Aiken-Rhett and Joseph Manigault Houses), the College of Charleston, the Charleston School of Law, and the nationally-recognized cuisine/entertainment district on Upper King. Within walking distance (or by complimentary trolley) are the King Street shopping area and antiques district, The Market, and multiple other historic districts.

The roomy professionally-decorated ground-floor Cookhouse unit accommodates up to four people. The unit has a queen reproduction historic rice bed, two huge non-working fireplaces (the original kitchen and laundry rooms to the main home), accent antiques, a cavernous bathroom with granite-tiled shower, and a entirely-equipped kitchen/sitting room with eating area and full-sized couch bed. The Cookhouse features a professionally-designed patio and garden and has off-street parking for 1-2 cars.

Charleston is full of history, appeal and outstanding hospitality. The Cookhouse accepts you painless access to beaches (15 mins.), historic river plantations (20 mins.), the South Carolina Aquarium, elegant, diverse cuisine, and accepts you to just relax, read, nibble, and imbibe your favorite beverages in the shared garden.

Illustrated in Bernard Herman’s Townhouse: Architecture and Material Life in the Early American City 1780-1830 (2005), the Cookhouse was newly attractively restored following the award-winning restoration of the main John Robinson House, a historically significant Federal double home (1814) constructed by the wealthy merchant who later constructed the adjacent urban plantation now known as the Aiken-Rhett House. There is an interesting article with numerous photos on the Cookhouse restoration in Period Homes magazine (Vol. 14, No. 6, Nov. 2013), a copy of which is available in the Cookhouse.

Please note that The Cookhouse is a duplex structure located behind the main home. This listing is for the ground-floor 1br/1ba unit and there is also a second floor 1br/1ba unit above. The units are completely separate with their own private entrances and share no interior spaces. Also note that while The Cookhouse can accommodate a max of 4 people, the second bed is a full-sized couch bed in the living area.

While this is a newer listing due to a new management team taking over as hosts, this property has been a short term rental for many years with nearly 200 positive 5-star reviews from the homeowner's previous listing.

This is a completely-licensed short term rental, City of Charleston Permit # OP2018-00221.

Tips and Tricks to get the perfect Charleston vacation rental experience:

Sticking to your rental home budget:

  • The earlier your group can book a rental home, the easier your search will be. The best vacation homes are booked early. Reserving your vacation rental six - twelve months before your vacation is recommended. Holiday gatherings are excellent times to search for and book your rental property.
  • Summer is the most expensive season in coastal SC. To get the best value, try changing your family's Charleston area trip dates to the Spring or Fall months. May, September, and even October offer warm temperatures, fewer crowds, and reduced traffic.
  • Property management companies sometimes offer special rates for active duty military and veterans. Check with your property manager to see if rate reductions are available for your group.
  • Property management companies typically offer customers an option to obtain trip insurance. Trip insurance, which costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed trip time as a result of personal medical-related emergencies or weather, as well as hurricane evacuation costs, such as an unexpected hotel or extra fuel expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your host for program terms and fees.
  • Find a copy of your local visitors guide upon arrival. If your rental property doesn't have a copy, you can find them at local grocery stores, shopping centers, and visitor centers. In addition to great articles, visitors guides contain offers and deals for local attractions, tours, restaurants, and shops.

Filter your rental search:

  • To start, have your group choose a vacation week and a budget.
  • Determine how many bedrooms and the bed configuration your family needs. Charming, Historic 1br\/1ba Garden District Cookhouse Apartment has 1 bedrooms and 1 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our rental home search.
  • Precise information regarding bedrooms and bed counts & types is normally accessible on booking pages. If you don't see them listed, call the property owner before you book the home. Remember that most properties list the maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes pull out couches in living rooms. You'll need to work out what bed configuration is optimal for your group.
  • Remember to include your furry companions! Many vacation homes allow animals, but guidelines and restrictions apply. Type of pet, size and breeds may be limited. Ask your property manager before booking, and study your rental agreement! Pet fees or charges could be applied to your agreement.
  • If there's a specific Charleston area attraction you are enamored with, keep an eye out for homes that are either nearby, or those that cater especially to your requirements.
  • Suitable accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for guests with disabilities. Make certain to ask about wheel chair accessibility, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs.

Advice for your stay:

  • Review check in & check out procedures before leaving home. Save the directions to your phone, and take a printed copy.
  • Hosts are available to help! Feel free to ask questions before, during, or after your stay.
  • Lock your rental property while you are away! Don't let crooks spoil your family vacation.
  • Upon check-in, make note of any damages to the property and immediately alert the host. Keep records of all correspondence just in case a dispute arises.
  • Respecting quiet hours and parking policies can make a stay more pleasurable. You will increase your chance to make local friends, and resident neighbors are an excellent resource to find the best local scenic spots.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Residents can usually help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to find the fresh catch of the day, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for BBQ?
  • Don't leave anything behind! Just before you drive away, walk through the rental property to make sure you've collected all personal belongings. Check closets, dressers, garages, and bathrooms for hidden belongings. Clean the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Go through the rental one final time and look for any damage. We suggest inspecting the property with the host whenever you can (often this isn't possible). If the property manager is not available, remember to take video of the rental to record its condition at check-out.
  • Did your group have a fantastic vacation? Most rental home management companies make it easy for travelers to provide reviews. If your rental property and/or host was wonderful, they always love to hear your praise. If anything was imperfect and they failed to fix it reasonably, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make it a point as part of your review.
