About this Property

  • Sleeps 12
  • 5 Bedrooms
  • 6 Bathrooms
  • Private vacation home
  • Approximately 2800 square feet

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 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 drink.

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 enormous windows and opulent 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 impressive bathroom is ideal for primping at the sizable 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 chic 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 pretty 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.

Tips and Tricks to get the optimal rental home experience:

Find your perfect rental:

  • Summer is high season in the Charleston area area. Reserve your Charleston area rental home in Spring or Fall to get the benefit of beautiful weather while saving money and avoiding crowds. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a Charleston area vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday on the coast? Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years are great times to gather with family and friends at your favorite beach.
  • Book your vacation rental as soon as possible. Rental schedules generally open a year in advance (or in September just after the Summer season ends). Many groups book their Summer vacation rentals during holiday get-togethers. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Some property management companies offer discounts for veterans and active duty military. Make sure to check with your host or property manager to see if special offers are available for your family before you book.
  • Property management companies usually offer their guests an option to obtain vacation insurance protection. Trip insurance, which normally costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for days missed as a result of personal medical-related issues or weather, as well as ensuing additional evacuation costs or charges, such as an unanticipated hotel stay or additional gasoline expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a welcome relief if the unforeseen happens. Ask your host for program terms and fees.
  • Look for your local Charleston area area magazine upon checking in. If your rental doesn't have a copy, you can find them at local grocery stores, shopping centers, and visitor centers. In addition to great local information, visitors guides have discounts for nearby accommodations, restaurants and tours.

Use filters to narrow your rental search:

  • To start, have your group select the best dates and a budget.
  • Decide how many beds and the configuration your group needs. 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 search.
  • Precise details about bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is almost always accessible online. If not, contact the property management company before reserving your home. Remember that most properties list the maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes pull out couches in living rooms.
  • If there's a specific Charleston area attraction you long to visit, keep an eye out for homes that are either near by, or those that cater to your needs.
  • Suitable accessibility can make or break a vacation for the less-mobile. Make certain to inquire about wheel chair accessibility, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs.
  • Are you bringing the family pet? Many vacation homes allow animals, but guidelines and restrictions apply. Type of pet, size and breeds may be limited. Remember to ask the property manager before booking, and study your rental agreement! Additional pet fees or charges might be applied to your invoice.

More considerations for your visit:

  • Put the owner's information in your smartphone and wallet.
  • Upon check-in, document any damages to the property and immediately contact the host. Keep records of all coorespondence.
  • Hosts are there to help! Don't be shy to ask any questions during your stay.
  • Respect the neighborhood. Often times, adjacent homes are filled by local residents. Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking policies reduces conflict and allows everyone to enjoy their day.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local! Locals can typically help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to find the best bike paths, have a great night out, or the best spots for fine dining?
  • Protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by locking and securing the home while you are away, just like you would at home.
  • Re-check every room of the vacation property to confirm that you've packed everything at check-out. Check bathrooms, dressers, and closets for hidden belongings. Clean out the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Document the condition of the property at check-out. We recommend taking a video during your final walk-through.
  • After your trip, leave a review! Property managers rely on good ratings to stimulate future reservations. They'll be much obliged for your review. Alternatively, if something went wrong, other families will will be grateful for your feedback and help them have the best future vacation. Please be fair with your feedback If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the host had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded reasonably to remedy it.
