Upon entering the home you'll be delighted by the unique front door and know you have arrived somewhere special.

The first room to the left you will appreciate the library with a diverse collection of books, a enormous dining table and a bar for afternoon drinks. Open the pocket doors and you will be in the parlor with one of seven fireplaces that are original to the home. Parlors are quintessential to Charleston homes for entertaining or afternoon tea.

Down the hall you will find a powder room, followed by a cozy kitchen, equipped with a dainty retro refrigerator, induction cooktop, kettle, toaster oven, and a 1940s era french sink. Savor your meals at the table for two while the sunlight filters in through the shaded garden walkway.

Across the hall is room No. 6 with a king bed and a place to hang your clothes in the rosy glow of the modern lamps. Positioned in the center of the home, this room is peaceful and calming. To freshen up, you will have your choice of a full bath appointed with a vintage claw foot tub across the hall or to the right there is a second bathroom with a shower.

At the end of the hall sits bedroom No. 8 that we refer to as the Garden Room. Cozy with a full sized bed, a shower, vanity, and fireplace. You will have access to a modest covered porch that enters into the enchanting and secluded garden. If visiting in the winter, don't forget to pick off some oranges from our tree shading the garden for your morning juice or beverage.

Lets go upstairs as we pass a reading nook with a adore seat tucked away at the bottom of the staircase.

At the top and to the right you'll see room No. 4 with two queen beds and a fireplace. The sizable windows and chic blue ceiling give this room a calming ambience. Next door there's a marbled floor bathroom with 1920s patina clawfoot tub to soak or shower. This delightful bathroom is ideal for primping at the huge vanity and vintage stool.

Room No. 2 has twin beds and an exposed brick wall to ceiling fireplace, bringing warmth into this welcoming room for two.

Both of these rooms have access to the enclosed porch that travels the length of the building with a bench to sit and relax. Take the back door down to the garden but be careful on the outdoor stairway.

This home features two kitchens and the second one is upstairs, a galley featuring a full size refrigerator, retro apartment stove, dishwasher, and open shelving located on the exposed brick original to the home. There's bar seating around an industrial island, ideal for entertaining as the kitchen opens into a comfortable den with another fireplace.

Through the french doors you'll find the biggest and most handsome bedroom in the home. A king bed with a velvet settee at the foot, facing a fireplace. This room features storage for a long stay in the chifforobe and a enchanting vanity. Glass doors open up onto a sleeping porch overlooking Society st. ideal for afternoon naps or appreciating Charleston's breezy evenings and the smell of magnolias. You'll find everything you need to relax and feel at home.

The "Ginger Lily" has been thoughtfully furnished with eclectic vintage pieces, funky artwork, and a collective of plants in neat pots throughout this home adding to this ideal Charleston hideaway.

Strategies to get the optimal vacation rental experience:

When to book a Charleston area rental home & When to go:

  • Book your vacation rental as soon as possible. Rental schedules often open twelve months in advance (or in September just after the Summer season ends). Many families book their Summer rental homes during Thanksgiving and Christmas get-togethers. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • June, July, and August are the most expensive months in Charleston. Reserve your vacation home in Fall or Spring months to get the benefit of beautiful weather while saving money and avoiding crowds.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may be qualified for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property management company or host if your family qualifies for a price reduction or discount.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners usually offer customers an option to obtain trip insurance. Trip insurance, which normally costs 1% - 5% of the base stay 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 hurricane evacuation costs, such as an unexpected hotel or additional fuel expenses. Trip insurance might be a a welcome relief if the unforeseen occurs. Ask the property owner for program terms and fees.
  • Find a copy of 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 shops and fuel stations. In addition to great local articles, visitor guide magazines have offers and deals for nearby tours and attractions.

How to pick the best rental in the Charleston area area:

  • Select a group lead, choose your vacation week, and choose a max budget.
  • Note the number beds and the configuration your family requires. Historic 1882 Home ~ Sleeps 12 ~ In The Heart Of Downtown Charleston has 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms.
  • Specific information regarding bedrooms and bed counts & types is generally accessible on booking websites. If not, reach out to the property management company before reserving your rental. Note that most properties list maximum guest capacity, which frequently includes pull-out couches and bunk beds. You will need to determine what configuration is right for your group.
  • Some rental properties allow pets, and some do not. Acceptable types of dog or cat, size and breeds may be restricted, and additional charges may apply. Ask the host about allowable breeds and types before booking.
  • If there's a specific Charleston area beach you long to visit, look for homes that are either nearby, or those that cater to your desires.
  • Proper accessibility can make or break a vacation for those with limited mobility. Confirm all necessary amenities are available before booking.

Tips to have a great stay:

  • Take a copy of the host's phone number and arrival/departure procedures for your .
  • Hosts are great sources of help! Don't be shy to ask questions during your stay.
  • Protect the rental owner (and your things!) by locking the rental when you are out, just like you would at home.
  • During check-in, note any damages to the rental property and immediately alert the host. Record all correspondence in case a dispute arises.
  • Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking restrictions can make a stay more pleasurable. You will increase your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors are a great source for finding the best local spots.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local resident! Residents can often help. Who better to ask where to grab the best tacos, have a great night out, or the best spots for fishing?
  • Re-check every room of the property to make sure that you've packed all of your belongings at check-out. Make sure to check garages, decks, and cabinets for hidden belongings. Clean out the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Go through the rental a final time and keep an eye out for any damage. We advise walking through with the host whenever you can (often this isn't possible). If the host isn't available, ensure that you take photographs of the rental to record its condition.
  • Leave a review! Hosts rely on good feedback to drive future reservations. They'll be much obliged for your review. Alternatively, if something went wrong, other vacationing families will appreciate that you share your experience find their best rental home. Please be fair with your feedback If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the host could control the issue, and if so, whether they responded reasonably to solve it.
