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 gorgeous 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 chic dining room with splendid 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 lavish highboy. The new kitchen with granite counters, impressive 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 fabulous 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 sizable 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 enormous dormer bedrooms with amazing 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 roomy and striking. The areas adjoining the home are terraced in old Charleston bricks and provide awesome 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 simple 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.

Strategies for getting the best Charleston vacation home experience:

Get the most from your rental budget:

  • Book your vacation in Spring or Fall to get the benefit of beautiful weather while saving money and avoiding crowds.
  • The sooner you can reserve a vacation home, the easier your search will be. The most desirable vacation homes are reserved very early. Booking your vacation home up to twelve months before your vacation dates is recommended. Holidays such as Christmas and Thanksgiving are excellent times to plan and reserve your vacation home.
  • Veterans and Active Duty Military members may be qualified for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective host if your group qualifies for a price reduction.
  • Property management companies usually offer guests an option to add trip insurance. Trip insurance, which commonly will cost you between 1% - 5% of the base reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any missed trip time as a result of personal medical-related catastrophes or weather disasters, as well as evacuation costs, such as an unanticipated hotel or additional fuel expenses. Trip insurance might be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your host for specifics.
  • Look for your local Charleston area visitors guide magazine when you arrive at the rental property. If your rental doesn't have one, you can find them at local grocery stores, shopping centers, and visitor centers. In addition to great local stories, visitor guide magazines contain deals for nearby tours, shops, and attractions.

Choosing the perfect vacation home in Charleston:

  • Begin by selecting vacation dates and a budget.
  • Determine how many beds and the bed configuration your group requires. Grand historic home, spacious, downtown, piazza and garden (Lic.#OP2018-00320) has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.
  • Precise information regarding bedrooms and bed counts & types is normally accessible online. Otherwise, call the property manager before you book the home. Note that most listings specify the max. guest capacity, which frequently includes pull-out couches.
  • Visiting for a specific event? Use a map search to browse nearby properties.
  • Appropriate accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for persons with a disability. .
  • Some properties allow pets, and others don't. Acceptable types of family pet, weight and breeds may be restricted, and added fees may apply. Ask the owner about your furry family members before booking.

More tips for your stay:

  • We recommend storing the host's information in your smartphone.
  • Note any issues with the rental during check in, and immediately send them to the owner. We specifically recommend e-mails and text messages, as they usually contain time stamps that can be useful if a dispute arises.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a garage door opener, stereo or washer/dryer. Contact your property manager. They are there to help! A brief text message prevents many issues.
  • Be respectful. Often times, surrounding homes are occupied by local residents. Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking regulations reduces conflict and allows everyone to enjoy their day.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local resident! Residents can typically help. Who better to ask where to launch your kayaks, have a great night out, or the best spots for BBQ?
  • Protect the owner (and your stuff!) by locking and securing the home when you are gone, just like you would back home.
  • Upon check-out, take a walk-through to make sure you did not forget anything. Check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden belongings. Clean the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Inspect the property one final time and look for damage. We suggest inspecting the property with the property manager whenever you can. If the manager isn't available, take video of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you have a great time? Most rental websites make it easy for travelers to provide feedback. If your property and/or property management company was wonderful, they would love to hear about it. If anything was imperfect and they failed to correct it reasonably, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make a note as part of your feedback.
