Constructed in the 1890s and located in a prime location near the heart of downtown Charleston, this historic first-floor hideaway is the ideal home away from home for your next escapade in Charleston! With 1,500 square feet of comfort and convenience, you'll find plenty of space and two full bathrooms. This home is ideal for a weekend hideaway or family gathering. If you choose to entertain at home for lunch or dinner, let the full kitchen inspire you to prepare lazy brunches and get togethers with friends.

What's close by:
This hideaway is conveniently located in Charleston's Historic Cannonborough-Elliottborough Neighborhood, a safe neighborhood where guests can walk around at any time of the day without any concerns. There are a lot of students in the area as the home is close to the Medical University of South Carolina. Even though you have a completely equipped kitchen at home, being surrounded by spectacular dining options is a clear temptation and there's no one to blame! Treat your guests and yourself to a mouth-watering meal at close by eateries like Cannon Green, Xiao Bao Biscuit, Fuel, The Grocery, Warehouse, Leon's, Little Jack's Tavern, Pancito and Lefty, or Five Loaves Cafe.

Tricks and tips to get the perfect Charleston area vacation property experience:

Cost saving strategies:

  • The sooner you can book a vacation home, the better your selection will be. The best rental homes are reserved very early. Booking your rental six - twelve months before your travel dates is recommended. Holiday gatherings are excellent times to search for and book your vacation rental.
  • Reserve your rental home in Fall or Spring months to enjoy beautiful weather while saving money and avoiding crowds. Many vacationers use this strategy to find larger homes within budget, or to book an oceanfront rental that would otherwise be unavailable during the Summer. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a Charleston area vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday on the coast? Christmas, Thanksgiving, and New Years Eve are great times to gather with loved ones at your favorite beach.
  • Veterans and Active Duty Military members may be qualified for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property owner or host whether your family qualifies for a special rate.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners frequently offer customers an option to add trip insurance. Trip insurance, which commonly will cost you anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any days missed as a result of medical-related issues or weather, as well as ensuing additional evacuation charges, such as an unexpected hotel or extra gasoline expenses. Trip insurance might be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your host for details.
  • Many rental management companies supply Charleston area area visitors guides that include coupons, either offered independently by local businesses, or through a relationship between the property management company and the business itself. You can also find visitors guide and coupon books at local shops and grocery stores.

Finding the perfect rental home in the Charleston area area:

  • Select vacation dates and budget.
  • Decide how many bedrooms and the bed configuration your family needs. Historic Downstairs Home in Downtown Charleston w/Free WiFi - Perfect for Groups has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our Charleston area rental home search.
  • Precise information about bedrooms and bed counts is often available on booking pages. If you don't see them listed, call the host before you reserve the property. Note that most properties list the maximum guest capacity, which usually includes pull-out couches and bunk beds. You will need to determine what is optimal for your group.
  • Some properties allow pets, and others don't. Acceptable types of pet, size and breeds may be restricted, and added charges may apply. Ask the property manager about pets before booking.
  • Are you visiting for a specific event? Use a map search to browse nearby rentals.
  • Suitable accessibility can make or break a vacation for persons with disabilities. Make certain to ask about specialized equipment and wheel chair accessibility.

Advice for a smooth stay:

  • Be sure you get the property manager's contact number and entry/exit procedures for your rental. Put the host's contact information in your smartphone and wallet.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a hot tub, stereo or appliance. Contact your property manager. They are there to help! A brief telephone call can prevent lots of problems.
  • Keep the property locked while you're gone! Don't let crooks spoil your vacation.
  • To make sure that damages aren't linked to your family's stay, note any problem areas upon check in. Get in touch with the host right away to report your findings. If there is a dispute about legal responsibility later, having a record of concerns and contact attempts will be helpful.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like unpleasant vacationers disrupting your peace. Use the golden rule for common sense. If they like you, locals might even recommend great beaches and attractions you would've never otherwise known about!
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local! Residents can frequently point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to enjoy a steak with a view, have a great night out, or the best spots for bird watching?
  • When it's time to leave, complete a walk-through to make sure you did not forget anything. Make sure to check bathrooms, garages, and back yards for hidden belongings. Clean out the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Record a video to document the condition of the property.
  • Did you have a wonderful stay? Many vacation rental websites make it easy for travelers to provide feedback. If your rental and/or property management company was fantastic, they always love to hear your praise. If anything was wrong and they failed to address it within reason, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make it a point as part of your comments.
