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 huge dining table and a bar for afternoon beverages. 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. Appreciate 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 appreciate 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 alluring 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 pretty bathroom is ideal for primping at the enormous 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 fashonable 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 handsome 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.

Tips and Tricks to get the optimal Charleston area vacation rental experience:
Get the most from your rental budget:
- The earlier your group can book a rental home, the better your selection will be. The best vacation rentals are reserved very early. Reserving your vacation property six to twelve months before your vacation is recommended. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years Eve are excellent times to plan and book your rental.
- June, July, and August are the most expensive months in the Charleston area area. Booking a rental in Spring or Fall is one of our best tips for saving money on your vacation rental. Rental rates are lower, and you'll find a better selection of acceptable properties.
- Veterans and Active Duty Military members may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property management company or host whether your group qualifies for a special rate.
- Property managers usually offer renters an option to purchase trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which costs 1% - 5% of the base reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any missed time as a result of medical-related emergencies or weather disasters, as well as evacuation charges, such as an unexpected hotel stay or extra fuel expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for specifics.
- Often, rental management companies and vacation rental houses supply Charleston area area visitor guide magazines which include special deals, either offered independently by local companies, or by way of 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 gas stations and shopping centers.
Choosing and booking the best Charleston area rental home:
- First and foremost, have your family commit to dates and a max budget.
- Determine how many beds and what type of bedroom configuration your group requires. Historic 1882 Home ~ Sleeps 12 ~ In The Heart Of Downtown Charleston has 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our Charleston area rental home search.
- Specific information about bedrooms and bed counts is often available on booking websites. Otherwise, contact the property manager before you book the home. Remember that most properties list the maximum guest capacity, which often includes pull-out couches. You'll need to establish what is optimal for your trip.
- Some properties allow pets, but others don't. Allowable types of dog or cat, size and breeds may be restricted, and additional charges may apply. Ask the owner about allowable breeds and types before booking.
- If there's a certain Charleston area attraction you simply love, search for rentals that are either nearby, or those that cater especially to your requirements.
- Proper accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for guests with disabilities. Remember to confirm all required amenities are available before booking
Tips for a great stay:
- Add the owner's phone number to your smartphone. Understand and take a copy of arrival/departure procedures.
- Property managers are available to help! Don't be shy to ask questions during your stay.
- Keep your rental home locked while you are away! Don't let crooks ruin your holiday.
- Record any damages to the rental during check in, and immediately send them to the owner. We specifically recommend e-mails and text messages, as they usually contain built-in time stamps that are helpful if there is a dispute.
- Be a good neighbor. Frequently, surrounding homes are filled by permanent residents. Respecting quiet hours and parking rules reduces conflict and allows everyone to enjoy their day.
- Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Neighbors can frequently help you find exactly what you're looking for. 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 fine dining?
- Double-check every room of the vacation property to confirm that you've packed everything on check-out day. Make sure to check closets, dressers, garages, and bathrooms for hidden treasure. 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 you have a terrific time? Many rental home management companies make it easy for customers to provide comments. If your rental property and/or property management company was terrific, they always love to hear your praise. If anything was amiss and they failed to correct 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 comments.
