This journey will take you through the Historic King Street District, and the neighborhoods of Cannonborough, Elliottborough , Radcliffborough, Harleston Village, and finally South of Broad, until you reach the Battery itself. Go east one block and you are on King Street, the home of designer stores, eclectic stores, antique stores, and host of other fascinating stores as well as nationally acclaimed eateries. Upper King is the new center of Charleston’s distinguished restaurant and nighttime life. A fresh survey of the “Essential 18 Charleston Eateries” has seven of these eateries (Hominy Grille, Indaco, The Grocery, The Macintosh, The Ordinary, Two Boroughs Larder, Xiao Bao Biscuit) within four blocks of the bungalow.

PARK AND WALK
You do not need to have an automobile to savor Charleston while staying in the Cottage. Walk Score 94 means it's a "Walker"s Heaven"!

Money-saving Tips

  • Many property managers and rental homes supply Charleston area area travel discount catalogs which feature money-saving deals, either offered individually by local companies, or by a relationship between the property manager and the local merchant itself. Look for these publications and coupon books, because this allows vacationers to experience those wonderful activities at a often significantly discounted.
  • Prefer to steer clear of the crowds and save cash? Off-peak times offer up significant bargains.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the U.S. Armed forces may qualify for special discounts. Make sure to confirm with property manager to see if your vacationing group qualifies for a special offer.
  • Some homes are primarily suited for particular groups of vacationers. Event homes are best for weddings, receptions and corporate escapes. Some homes cater to beach bums. Other properties are situated close to music venues. If there's a certain Charleston area atteaction which you just love, search for rental properties that cater especially to your needs.
  • Give thought to purchasing trip insurance along with your rental agreement. Trip insurance, which generally will cost you somewhere between 1% - 5% of the base term price, offers travellers reimbursement of their travel costs for any days missed due to personal health emergencies or weather, in addition to ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unplanned hotel stay or additional fuel. Trip insurance can be a bank account-saver if the unforseen happens (heaven forbid!).

The Rental Process

You may be surprised to learn how many rentals are available at your destination. Rental home accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of global research sites like Homeaway and VRBO.

Virtually all rental homes in Charleston area are privately operated and many are represented by well-known local property management companies. Owners typically choose management companies to manage online advertising, housekeeping services and regular maintenance.

We've developed a brief guide to help you get the most out of your vacation property experience.

Where to find and reserve a great rental property:

Before you book "Perfect location, Stand alone cottage+courtyard, 1 block to King St, 3 BR/2BA", read through our brief collection of factors to consider.

The Earlier You Start, The Better The Selection

Like many trendy hot spots, In Charleston area the best vacation rentals are booked very early. Booking your rental home 6-12 months in advance is usually recommended, whenever possible. Holiday gatherings can be a popular time for families to plan their Summer family vacations..

Pick your Town and Travel Week

Consensus can be tough among members of the family, but the moment this challenging part is finished everything will start to slide in place.

Bedrooms and Bed Sizes Matter

Confirm who is attending the vacation, and just how many/what sort of bedroom configuration you need to have. Be mindful that most rental homes list maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in the family room. You'll need to determine what is acceptable for your company. Generally vacation home listings will outline each of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattresses.

Stay on a Budget

Does the preferred vacation property fit your budget during that popular Summer week? Be sure to get cost-sharing commitments from loved ones before booking an expensive rental. A single member of your company will have to be given the task of getting repayments and agreeing to responsibility for the entire rental fee at time of booking.

Let's Discuss Amenities

What home features is your group interested in? Are you looking for a rental home with outdoor kitchen? Do you desire to be far from the crowds, or close to a city setting? Are extras like beach chairs, grills, umbrellas, beach carts or coolers at your disposal and included with your rental home payment? Make a list of "needs and desires" from your group to help narrow your search to the most suitable property.

Accessibility and Special Issues to consider

Grandpa and Grandma will appreciate you for not reserving a stairs-only condo on the 3rd floor. Make sure you remember and inquire about wheel chair entry, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs..

Paws-Friendly, Please

Make sure you include your companion! Even though many vacation homes allow pets, guidelines and fees vary per property. A number of limitations might dismiss a potential rental. Study your contract thoroughly! Extra fees or deposits may be applied to your agreement.

Start the Search

Many websites exist to match guests with property owners.. In addition to Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Charleston area local rental homes" for local property management companies. Local agencies typically have an exclusive collection of vacation rentals daily and weekly.

Negotiate

When you've spotted your dream rental, double check to make sure your trip dates are available.

Some rental owners will negotiate prices, and some will not. If they are hesitant to budge on a peak-season trip, try asking for an additional night. Off-peak weeks should be negotiable more frequently than peak-season..

Read The Agreement

You'll want to know which services are included:

  • Utility bills
  • WIFI Access
  • Telephone service
  • Hot Tub Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Cleaning services and housekeeping
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies
  • Key exchange
  • Parking Space

Get a total that includes state taxes, pet and other extra fees.

If you need to Cancel

Cancellation policies are different for each rental. Many rental home contracts include an option for trip insurance. Trip insurance, which frequently costs between 1% - 5% of your base rental cost, can provide travellers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental costs) for any nights missed due to personal medical-related emergencies or weather, in addition to hurricane evacuation costs, such as a unexpected motel stay or additional gas.

Book It

When everything seems correct, it's finally time to sign a rental agreement. Keep in mind that most rental agreements will require a considerable rental deposit and/or security deposit to safeguard the home owner.

Get Contact Info

Make sure you get the property manager's contact telephone number and entry/exit procedures for your rental home. We recommend storing the contact's details in your phone and wallet.

Congrats! All that is left is enjoying your vacation!

During your Stay

  • Photograph at your arrival. Record the condition of the rental home immediately upon arrival. We also recommend immediately calling the property manager with a report of any damages, along with your request for any critical repairs. This can prevent disagreements during checkout.
  • Ask questions. If you have any ambiguity about vehicle parking, policies of the house, condo access, swimming pool operations, etc... we advise you ask the rental manager immediately. A quick phone call eliminates many hassles.
  • Remember to respect your nearby neighbors. . Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by visitors next to your residence.
  • Ask a local. Locals can often point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to order the best pizza, have a great night out, or the best spots for night life?
  • Enjoy your stay! Ensure you protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the rental home locked up while you are away, just like you would in your own home.

Leaving Paradise

  • Clean up a little bit. Even when you're paying a house cleaning fee, The vacation rental needs to be in good shape. Sinks full of dishes, substantial sand on the floor and sticky messes should really be dealt with before leaving.
  • When everything is out, perform a walk-through of the rental home to make sure no property damage occurred during your stay. We suggest walking through with the rental manager whenever feasible (this isn't always the case).. If the property manager is not available, make certain you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you have a blast? Most vacation rental web sites request feedback after your stay is complete. Property owners and rental managers will appreciate your favorable reviews. If anything was wrong and they failed to correct it in a acceptable manner, or when the rental was not as described, you'll want to note that in your critique.

Learn from your Experience

Hold a debrief with your traveling companions. Does everyone want to re-book next year? Hopefully this guide helped you find a terrific vacation rental. Maybe the property was not quite right, and you'll better understand how to filter your search for the next trip.
