Located half a block off King Street and BRAND NEW TO THE RENTAL MARKET, constructed in 1882 Josephine's Apartment has retained all her appeal and with an address in the heart of the city, it is walking access to the best shopping in Charleston. Josespine's is a hidden gem located on Society st with double front porches and a humongous magical tree in the front courtyard!
A white picket fence marks the address adding ambiance and privacy to the double porches. 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 savor 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 drink.
Josephine's apartment 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.

Our top Rental booking tips and tricks:
How to get the best rental home value:
- Summertime is high season in Charleston. To get the largest rental for your budget, we highly recommend reserving in Fall or Spring. You'll benefit from lower rental rates, greater selection, gorgeous weather and the absence of large crowds at popular attractions and restaurants.
- Reserve your vacation rental as soon as possible. Rental schedules usually become available 12 months in advance (or in September just after Summertime ends). Many groups reserve their Summer vacation rentals during Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Eve get-togethers. Book before these holidays for best selection.
- Veterans and Active Duty Military members may be qualified for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property manager if your family qualifies for a price reduction or discount.
- Booking websites usually offer renters an option to obtain trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which commonly will cost anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for missed vacation time as a result of medical-related emergencies or weather disasters, as well as ensuing additional evacuation costs, such as an unexpected hotel overnight or extra gasoline expenses. Trip insurance can be a a welcome relief if the unforeseen happens. Ask your host for additional information.
- Many management companies and vacation rental houses supply Charleston area area visitors guide magazines which will include special offers, either offered directly by local businesses, or through a relationship with the property management company and the business itself. You can also find visitors guide and coupon books at local shops and grocery stores.
Selecting the best rental home:
- Select a group leader, choose your trip dates, and choose a budget.
- Determine how many bedrooms and what type of bedroom configuration your family needs. Josephine's Garden Apartment Steps From King St. In A Neatly Renovated 1882 Home has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
- Specific information regarding bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is often accessible on booking websites. If not, email the property owner before reserving your home. Remember that most property listings specify the max. guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in living rooms. You'll need to establish which bed configuration is right for your trip.
- Does your group require special amenities? Most websites include amenity lists and search filters. Amenity filters help you quickly remove less-optimal properties.
- Suitable accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for guests with disabilities. Remember to confirm all required amenities are available before booking
- Are you traveling with furry, four-legged family members? Although a number of vacation homes allow pets or animals, guidelines and costs vary per property. Allowable pet type, breed, and size are often limited. Remember to ask the property manager before booking, and study your agreement! Additional pet fees or charges might be applied to your contract.
More tips for your stay:
- Take a copy of the property manager's contact number and entry/exit procedures for your rental home. We recommend storing the host's contact information in your smartphone and wallet.
- During check-in, record any damages to the rental property and immediately contact the owner. Record all correspondence just in case a dispute arises.
- Ask questions. You may want instructions for a fireplace, television set or thermostat. Contact your property manager. They are there to help! A brief call can prevent lots of concerns.
- Respect your neighbors. Often times, adjacent homes are occupied by permanent residents. Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking regulations can make a stay significantly more pleasurable.
- Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Locals can often help. Who better to ask where to get the best seafood, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for fishing?
- Keep your rental home locked while you're gone! Don't let crooks ruin your vacation.
- Just before checking out, complete a walk-through to confirm you have not leave anything behind. Check closets, dressers, garages, and bathrooms for hidden items. Clean out 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.
- Remember to leave a review! Hosts rely on excellent feedback to compel new reservations. They'll be thankful for your feedback. Alternatively, if something went awry, other vacationing families will be thankful you shared your review find their best vacation rental. Be fair with your review. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the property manager had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded quickly to remedy it.
