We have lovingly restored our beautiful 1870 Victorian home located in Charleston's coveted Historic Downtown and freshly added a brand new gourmet kitchen. We have a downstairs parlor and an upstairs living area as is customary in the south. Upstairs features three bedrooms and there are two full bathrooms in the home. There are four fireplaces in the home, tennis courts just down the street and a playground around the corner. We look out over a park and are two blocks from the harbor. Sip some tea on either the front porch or have lunch on the back porch looking out over the huge backyard gardens with a grassy area and a pretty Italian pergola covered in wisteria, roses and gardenias. We are an allergy-complimentary home and have no family pets or smoking here.
We are in the ideal location to walk (or bicycle) to all the historic landmarks downtown - famed Rainbow Row, enormous antebellum homes of the Battery, the Old Exchange, Pineapple Fountain, museums, harbor, market, etc. We are also walkable to the shopping and the many great eateries that Charleston is known for. Or perhaps you feel like grilling on either the gas or Weber charcoal grilles on the back porch while calming and appreciating the handsome garden while the kiddos play in the grassy yard. The home is just a short drive to the charming beaches and plantations. Travel +Leisure has named Charleston the #1 City in the United States and the #2 City in the World five years in a row and when you arrive - you'll see why. Charleston has it all - elegant white sand beaches, striking plantation homes with ancient oaks lining the drive, cobblestone streets and more. Time moves differently here and we welcome you to sit back and savor our southern hospitality! Please note - this home is available for monthly units only.

Tricks and tips to get the optimal rental experience:
Getting the most from your vacation rental budget:
- Summer time is high season in the Charleston area area. To find the best value, try shifting your vacation week to the Spring or Fall shoulder seasons. May, September, and October offer great weather, less crowded beaches, and reduced traffic. Many vacationers use this strategy to reserve larger homes, or to reserve an oceanfront vacation rental that would otherwise be unavailable during June, July, and August.
- Reserve your vacation rental as soon as possible. Rental schedules usually open twelve months in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many groups reserve their Summer vacations during Winter holiday 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 whether your group qualifies for a discount.
- Management companies and individual rental owners frequently offer renters an option to add vacation insurance protection. Trip insurance, which commonly will cost you anywhere between 1% - 5% of the stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any missed vacation time as a result of personal medical-related issues or weather, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs, such as an unanticipated hotel overnight or extra gas expenses. Trip insurance might be a a welcome relief if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your host for additional information.
- Often, management companies and vacation rental houses supply Charleston area area visitor guides that include special offers, either offered independently by local businesses, or by way of a relationship with the management company and the business itself. You can also find Charleston area visitors guide magazine and coupon books at local gas stations and shopping centers.
Choosing and booking your Charleston area rental home:
- Choose a group leader, select your vacation week, and select a spending budget.
- Determine how many bedrooms and what type of bedroom configuration your group needs. Quintessential Victorian Charmer in Heart of Charleston's Historic Downtown has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our rental home search.
- Precise information about bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is regularly available on booking pages. If you don't see them listed, email the property management company before booking your rental. Remember that most property listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which frequently includes pull-out couches.
- Looking for specific amenities? Most websites include search filters with amenity lists.
- Suitable accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for those with limited mobility. Make certain to ask about wheel chair accessibility, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs.
- Do your family pets travel with you? Although a number of vacation homes allow pets or animals, guidelines and costs vary per property. Type of pet, size and breeds may be limited. Ask your property manager before booking, and study your agreement thoroughly! Pet fees or charges may be applied to your contract.
Some things to know before you go:
- Be sure you get the property manager's phone number and check in/check out procedures for your rental.
- Note any issues with the property during check in, and immediately contact the host. We specifically recommend texts and e-mails, as they usually contain time stamps that are helpful if there is a dispute.
- Property managers are great sources of help! Don't be shy to ask any questions before, during, or after your stay.
- Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like disrespectful vacationers disrupting your peaceful home. Apply the golden rule for best judgement. If they like you, locals might even recommend great beaches and places you would have not otherwise known!
- Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Local residents can usually help. Who better to ask where to rent beach equipment, have a great night out, or the best spots for bird watching?
- Ensure you protect the property owner (and your things!) by locking the property when you are away, just like you would at home.
- Double-check the property to confirm that you've packed all of your family's items at departure. Re-check garages, decks, and cabinets for hidden items. Clean out the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
- Record a video to document the condition of the property.
- Did your group have a wonderful stay? Most rental home management companies make it easy for travelers to provide feedback. If your property and/or property management company was fantastic, they will likely appreciate your kind words. If anything was out of order and they failed to address it within reason, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make a note as part of your review.
