Spend the summer in downtown Charleston living in the heart of it all at this 28+ day rental!

The 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1200 sq ft home, originally constructed in the 1880s, was newly restored back to its former glory but refreshed to modern standards. The home features 12 foot ceilings, original pine wood floors, as well as original windows, transoms and fireplaces. While the subtle imperfections of the home tell a story of centuries past, the home also includes the modern luxuries and amenities our guests have come to expect such as hotel-grade beds and linens, high-speed WiFi, all new appliances and high-end bathroom finishes. The Bee's Knees is a sanctuary in the heart of it all - directly across the street from MUSC and St. Luke’s Chapel, 5 blocks from Upper King St. and a 20-30 min. walk to the main sightseeing attractions.

The bottom floor apartment is accessed through the front of the building with two reserved parking spaces located in the rear of the building. The primary bedroom includes a brand new, extravagant king bed, full-length mirror, intelligent TV, nightlight and intelligent device charger, cavernous closet with additional pillows, cleaning supplies and space for all of your personal belongings as well as a desk for those needing a private workspace.

Located off the hallway is a full-size washer/dryer closet with supplied laundry supplies. Continue down the hall to your primary bathroom, complete with a rain and handheld shower. The main living space includes a dinette with seating for two, a Pottery Barn couch with queen sized pull-out couch and memory foam bed. The 55” intelligent TV includes a variety of complimentary channels through Roku, or you can activate “guest mode” to access your own streaming channels and catch up on your shows.

Whether you’re looking to entertain or prepare a gourmet meal, the kitchen is entirely supplied with everything you’d need, including plastic dinnerware for our youngest of guests. The coffee bar includes a variety of k-cups, tea bags, ground coffee from a local Charleston roaster, sugar and creamer. Take a seat at one of our locally-made, bespoke breakfast bars, with seating for 4.

Last but not least, step foot into our second bedroom with two queen beds, hotel-grade beds and linens, an antique 19th century dresser, intelligent TV and ensuite bathroom. Ideal for families with kids, the shower/tub combo has a hinge glass door for bathing the kiddos as well as a step stool for the little ones who can’t rather reach the sink.

Guests can also savor some time al fresco on the shared front porch. Please note, peaceful hours are in effect after 10 p.m.

Two parking spots are included with your reservation. The parking lot is located in the rear of the building and both spots are marked with our apartment number. For any additional cars or visitors, there is ample street parking, especially on weekends and in the evening hours. Guests can self check-in using the intelligent lock on the front door. The code will be supplied 48 hours prior with additional check-in instructions.

Centrally located downtown in the Cannonborough neighborhood of the city, guests can walk, bicycle, Uber or rent a Turo to get anywhere they need on or around the peninsula.


The apartment sleeps 6 adults comfortably, with additional sleeping arrangements for 8 max.. The unit is kid-friendly with booster seat, toys, step stool and kids dinnerware.

For monthly units, we require a security deposit and mid-stay cleaning to refresh linens and clean the apartment. Owner pays all utilities (water, electrical, gas, internet).

Our city is growing quickly. With that growth comes construction. Unfortunately, there’s nothing we can do about the resulting noise or the current, cosmetic state of some neighboring buildings. During your stay, this shouldn’t be too bothersome, since the city’s noise ordinance dictates peaceful hours between 10pm and 8am.

The apartment is only available for 28+ day units as we are completing some additional permitting. Check back in winter 2023 for nightly rental availability!

Our top Vacation rental tips and tricks:

When to book & When to go:

  • The earlier you can reserve a vacation rental, the easier your search will be. The most desirable properties are booked early. Reserving your vacation rental six - twelve months before your vacation is recommended. Winter holidays are excellent times to plan and book your vacation rental.
  • To get the best value, try shifting your group's trip dates to the Spring or Fall months. May, September, and October offer pleasant temperatures, , and greatly reduced traffic. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a Charleston area vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday vacation near the ocean? Thanksgiving and Christmas are great times to gather with loved ones at the beach.
  • Owners sometimes offer rate reductions for veterans. Remember to ask your host or property manager if discounts are available for your family before you book.
  • Booking websites usually offer their guests an option to buy vacation insurance protection. Trip insurance, which costs 1% - 5% of the base reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for missed trip time as a result of personal medical-related issues or weather, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs, such as an unexpected hotel overnight or additional fuel expenses. Trip insurance might be a a life-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask the property owner for specifics.
  • Look for your local Charleston area area magazine upon arrival. If your rental property doesn't have one, you can find them at local grocery stores and visitor centers. In addition to great information, visitor guides contain discounts for nearby accommodations, tours and attractions.

Use filters to narrow your search:

  • Select dates and max budget.
  • Decide how many bedrooms and the bed configuration your group requires. Newly Renovated, Historic 2bd\/2ba Downtown Condo w\/ Parking has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our search.
  • Specific descriptions of bedrooms and bed counts is usually available online. If not, email or call the property owner before you reserve your home. Note that most listings specify maximum guest capacity, which frequently includes sofa beds. You will need to determine what is suitable for your family.
  • Some rentals allow pets, but some don't. Acceptable types of pet, size and breeds may be restricted, and added charges may apply. Ask your host about allowable pet guidelines before booking.
  • Visiting for a single event or attraction? Use a map search to browse nearby properties.
  • Appropriate accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for those with limited mobility. Make certain to inquire about specialized equipment and wheel chair accessibility.

More tips for your visit:

  • Add the host's phone number to your smartphone. Understand and take a copy of arrival/departure procedures.
  • Ask questions. You may want instructions for a fireplace, intercom or kitchen appliance. Contact your property manager. They are there to help! A brief text message can prevent many difficulties.
  • Lock your rental home while you are away. Protect your property!
  • Upon check-in, note any issues with the rental property and immediately alert the property manager. Keep records of all coorespondence.
  • Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking rules can make a stay more pleasurable. You'll increase your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors can be an excellent resource to find the best local scenic spots.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local resident! Neighbors can often help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to book the best tours, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for BBQ?
  • Just prior to departing, take a final walk-through to make sure you did not forget any personal items. Make sure to check closets, dressers, garages, and bathrooms for hidden items. 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.
  • Leave a review! Hosts rely on good feedback to inspire future bookings. They'll be grateful for your feedback. Alternatively, if something went wrong, other vacationers will appreciate that you share your feedback and help them have the best future vacation. Please be objective. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the manager could control the issue, and if so, whether they responded reasonably to fix it.
