Before requesting to book, please know we need to know your plans—your needs and your plans. We want the home to be right for you and we need to know you are a good fit. We have a 24 hour review for this reason. Until we have this information we will decline a booking.

This is a marvelous and unique opportunity to savor being able to experience Charleston more as a resident than a tourist. We are in a peaceful neighborhood and don't allow any events out of respect for our neighbors. (We do have other properties that are suitable for wedding groups and modest events. The vrbo numbers will be listed at the end). You will appreciate the alluring piazza overlooking the garden and the Ashley River and the impressive interior spaces.

This is an authentic Charleston 'single-home' (c 1795) which means a Charleston home that is a single room in depth, designed to catch the ocean breezes. The builders of this property were in the shipping business and a wharf was constructed into the river to accommodate the owner's ships. Property taxes at that time were based on a front footage assessment and the typical single home was placed so that the narrow side of the home would be on the street side. This property was an exception in that the long side of the home faces South Battery which made it even more accessible to the prevailing summer southwest breezes. The two piazzas on the south side provide a dual purpose: to provide a comfortable place to enjoy the afternoon breeze and sunsets and to provide shade for the home itself from the afternoon sun.

On the MAIN FLOORING is an fashonable dining room with handsome hand made mahogany table, sideboard, and hunt-board. Just across the central hall is a less formal living room. It is furnished with comfortable upholstered couch and chairs and accented with fine antiques including a mahogany chest, fold top desk, French farm table with 6 chairs and a excellent highboy. The new kitchen with granite counters, handsome light filled windows on three sides, all new appliances and amenities is accessed through two nine foot entrances from the living room. All of these rooms open onto the main floor piazza and offer amazing opportunities for family fun and entertaining. A gracious central stairway leads from the piazza to the huge and gorgeous Charleston garden.

The SECOND floor homes the two main bedrooms, baths and closets. The two enormous bedrooms with four poster mahogany King Bed in Master and Queen in Guest Room and adjoining bathrooms open onto the upper piazza overlooking the garden and Charleston Harbor.

The THIRD floor consists of two sizable dormer bedrooms with magnificent windows on the north and south sides. Between these rooms is a bath with a shower. All have windows providing a spectacular expansive roof top view of the landscape below.

The GARDEN is cavernous and appealing. The areas adjoining the home are terraced in old Charleston bricks and provide astounding area for containers of flowering plants. The planting in the main garden is a balanced mixture of evergreens which provide shape, texture, and definition on a year round basis, and flowering shrubs and plants which provide a bouquet of color and scent as the seasons evolve. In the center of the front garden is a shallow reflecting pool with an Italian fountain. The fountain is automatically lighted at nighttime and bathes the whole area with the ambiance of warm light and gurgling sounds. It is completely private from the street and completely enclosed and offers excellent opportunities for entertaining or for kids playing.

NEARBY
Very near prominent streets such as Church, Meeting, King and Legare Streets all are within very short walking distances to the property. White Point Gardens and the Harbor are within walking distance of the home. The home is in painless walking distance to the historic home museums, antique stores, art galleries, stores and famed eateries.

HURRICANES
We also advise during the month of September particularly, and some into October that you purchase the trip protection insurance because that is the peak 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 due to weather outside the 60 day cancellation period. Please ask Jamie if you have any questions at all.

WEDDING GROUP/FAMILY REUNION/CORPORATE RETREAT OPTIONS:

7841346. 7841344. 1662029. 1351757

How to find the best Charleston area vacation rental experience:

Cost saving strategies:

  • Reserve your vacation rental as soon as possible. Rental schedules usually open twelve months in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many families reserve their Summer rentals during holiday gatherings. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Summer months are high season in Charleston. To find the best value, change your family's Charleston area vacation to the Spring or Fall seasons. May, September, and October offer warmer temperatures, , and reduced traffic.
  • Veterans and Active Duty Military members may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property owner or host whether your family qualifies for a reduced rate.
  • Property management companies frequently offer guests an option to obtain trip insurance. Trip insurance, which costs 1% - 5% of the base booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any days missed as a result of medical-related issues or weather disasters, as well as evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected hotel stay or extra fuel expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a welcome relief if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for specifics.
  • Many rental management companies and vacation rental houses supply Charleston area area travel guides which will include coupons, either offered directly by local companies, or through a relationship with the property management company and the business itself. You can also find Charleston area visitors guide magazine and coupon books at local shops and grocery stores.

Planning and choosing the perfect Charleston area vacation home:

  • Select your dates and max budget.
  • Note the number bedrooms and what type of bedroom configuration you need. Grand historic home, spacious, downtown, piazza and garden (Lic.#OP2018-00320) has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our vacation rental search.
  • Specific descriptions of bedrooms and bed counts & types is often available on booking pages. Otherwise, email the host before reserving the vacation property. Remember that most properties list maximum guest capacity, which frequently includes pull-out couches and bunk beds. You'll need to establish what configuration is optimal for your vacation family.
  • Some rental properties allow pets, but others do not. Acceptable types of pet, weight and breeds may be restricted, and added charges may apply. Ask your host about pet restrictions before booking.
  • Visiting for a specific attraction? If so, use a map search to find nearby properties.
  • Suitable accessibility can make or ruin a vacation for persons with disabilities. Confirm all necessary amenities are included before booking.

Advice for a great stay:

  • Get the host's phone number and entry/exit procedures for your .
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a hot tub, television set or WIFI setup. Contact your owner. They are there to help! A brief telephone call can prevent lots of issues.
  • Lock your rental while you're out. Protect your property!
  • During check-in, note any issues with the rental property and immediately alert the host. Keep records of all correspondence just in case a dispute arises.
  • Respecting quiet hours and parking rules can make a stay significantly more pleasurable. Be a good neighbor. You will increase your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors are often a terrific source for finding the best local scenic spots.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local resident! Locals can often point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to see a beautiful sunrise or sunset, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for bird watching?
  • At departure, complete a walk-through to confirm you have not leave anything behind. Re-check bathrooms, garages, and back yards for hidden belongings. Clean the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Document the condition of the property at check-out. We recommend taking a video during your final walk-through.
  • Did your group have a great time? Most vacation rental websites 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 within reason, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make a note as part of your review.
