Live like a local in this show-stopping three bedroom, two bath apartment located in downtown Charleston. Housed in an historic home dating to 1852, every detail of the rental was entirely refreshed in 2017 to feature antique heart pine floor, tongue and groove walls, European hardware dating to the original period of the home, a completely bespoke kitchen, brand new washer and dryer, and more.
The floorplan is ideal for socializing with an open concept living room and eat-in kitchen on one end and the three bedrooms on the opposite end. The living room and kitchen look out on Cannon street, one of Cannonborough-Elliotborough neighborhood’s most vibrant streets, home to many fashionable stores and eateries all just steps from the rental.
The chef-ready bespoke kitchen features high-end kitchen appliances that make it convenient to whip up any meal – although with so many great eateries within blocks of the rental, it may be hard to resist going out for meals. Off of this living room/kitchen area is a classic Charleston porch, offering guests an outdoor area to visit and people watch.
All three bedrooms boast comfortable queen beds with plush linens. Two of the three bedrooms feature full ensuite bathrooms (shower and toilet – no bathtubs). One of the two bathrooms opens both to the bedroom as well as the hallway, accepting the third bedroom to access the bathroom from the hallway just off the bedroom.
The rental is located on the second floor (spiral staircase!) of the home and is one of three units we offer within the home. Please inquire if interested in booking more than one rental and we’d be happy to try to accommodate bigger events throughout our other units. One onsite parking spot is available for the rental – with room to park one more car across the street in a parking lot we lease.
Absolutely no events or late-nighttime noise will be tolerated.

How to find the best Charleston area vacation rental experience:
How to get the best rental value:
- Book your vacation rental as soon as possible. Rental schedules often open a year in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many groups book their Summer rental homes during Winter holiday gatherings. Book before these holidays for best selection.
- Booking your Charleston area vacation home in Fall or Spring months is our best tip for saving money on your vacation. Rates are lower, and you'll find a larger selection of desirable properties. Many vacationers use this strategy to find larger homes within budget, or to reserve an oceanfront vacation rental that would otherwise be unavailable during June, July, and August. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a Charleston area vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday vacation near the ocean? Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years are great times to gather with family and friends at the beach.
- Some hosts offer rate reductions for veterans. Remember to ask your host or property manager if special offers are available for your family.
- Property managers often offer renters an option to purchase vacation insurance protection. Trip insurance, which generally will cost you between 1% - 5% of the stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for missed days as a result of personal medical-related issues or weather disasters, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unanticipated hotel overnight or additional gas expenses. Trip insurance might be a a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask the property owner for specifics.
- Look for your local Charleston area visitors guide magazine when you arrive at the rental property. If your rental doesn't have one, you can find them at local grocery stores and visitor centers. In addition to great local stories, visitors guide magazines contain money saving offers on local tours, shops, and attractions.
How to choose the best vacation rental in Charleston:
- Start by having your group agree to a vacation week and a max budget.
- Note the number bedrooms and the configuration your family needs. Stay in an 1852 Antebellum Mansion Downtown has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
- Specific information about bedrooms and bed counts & types is generally available on booking pages. If not, contact the property manager before you reserve the property. Remember that most properties list the max. guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in living rooms.
- Are you bringing the family pet? Many vacation homes allow animals, but guidelines and restrictions apply. Allowable pet type, breed, and size are often limited. Remember to ask your host before booking, and study your agreement! Pet fees or may be applied to your agreement.
- If there's a particular Charleston area beach you are crazy about, keep an eye out for properties that are either close by, or those that cater especially to your needs.
- Proper accessibility can make or break a vacation for persons with disabilities. Make certain to ask about specialized equipment and wheel chair accessibility.
More tips for your stay:
- Put the host's contact information in your smartphone.
- Hosts are available to help! Don't be shy to ask any questions during your stay.
- Lock your rental while you're out and about. Protect the owner's property and your stuff!
- Upon check-in, make note of any issues with the rental property and immediately contact the host. Keep records of all correspondence just in case a dispute arises.
- Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like obnoxious vacationers bothering your life at home. Practice the golden rule for common sense. If they like you, locals might even recommend great restaurants and places you would have not otherwise known about!
- Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Residents can typically point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to find the best bike paths, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for fine dining?
- On check-out day, complete a walk-through to confirm you did not leave anything behind. Check bathrooms, garages, and back yards for hidden belongings. 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.
- Did your group have a wonderful vacation? Most rental managers make it easy for clients to provide reviews. If your rental property and/or property manager was great, they would love to hear it. If anything was imperfect and they failed to fix it reasonably, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make it a point as part of your feedback.
