ENTRANCE
The quintessential Charleston single home, this apartment is located on the second floor of one of Charleston's special historic homes. You enter the home through street steps onto the first floor piazza and then up the steps to the second floor overlooking treetops and rooftops. Now enter the apartment from the second floor piazza into a enormous high ceilinged GREAT ROOM with superb wood floors, a huge dining room table. The brand new KITCHEN with polished cabinetry and quartz counter is tucked away to the rear of this light-filled "great room". The stone counter with barstools is an inviting gathering space where you can visit, watch the prepare or savor a glass of wine. The kitchen has a complete supply of dishes and cookware. We have tried to add items that would make entertaining a joy.

LIVING ROOM OR 4TH BEDROOM
To the left are double folding doors leading into the grandiose living room with classic fireplace. The room is furbished with 4 velvet swivel chairs on brass legs and a top of the line, handsome couch sleeper with gel queen bed. The handsome mahogany antique desk completes the space.

In one corner, next to the fireplace, is a very clever and complete BATHROOM (2nd) with roomy stone shower with handsome glass door. Guests can use this room as a 4th bedroom with a very secure door.
The great room where you enter and the well supplied kitchen complement the gracious living room along with the piazza to make a comfortable and handsome space for friends and family to mix and socialize in a typical Charleston setting.

MASTER BEDROOM
Off of the dining room to the right is a modest but inviting bedroom (BR 1) with queen bed, a pretty window and closet and an entrance to the BATHROOM (1) with a soaking tub/shower. This bathroom can also be entered from the entrance room so also serves as another guest/common bathroom.

DORMER ROOMS
Between the kitchen and the living room is a Striking spiral staircase leading to two super glamourous DORMER ROOMS (2&3), each with their OWN BATH (2&3). These rooms have the oldest and prettiest floors of any of our units The triple windows look over the rooftops and are a joy to experience. Each of these rooms has a King Bed with the idea that there is plenty of room for couples or singles that want the bigger bed size to share. Of course the space is ideal for children but also a couple would be pleased since each room has total privacy including closet space and desks.

The space is under the dormers so a tall person will duck if getting in and out from the sides. The middle space in front of the window is full height. Let us know your preference so we can have it set up the way you want.

We are very excited to be offering this latest addition to our ST PHILIP SQUARE COMPLEX. Each apartment has something special but this might be our favorite. It is chic and provides an opportunity for our visitors to receive their visitors as a Charlestonian would. The three apartments in this building are all separate but connect through the piazzas and give the ideal space to be together and separate.


WHY CHOOSE ST PHILIP SQUARE:

We have a unique offering for wedding groups, family get-togethers, work retreats, friends traveling together, honeymooners, anniversary celebrants or families with children.

St Philip Square offers 8 units within a "square" that opens onto a shared parking area. Each apartment is a separate unit with unique characteristics. It is the ideal opportunity for groups of all sizes to organize a joint rental but each apartment is separate and is its own place. The vrbo numbers for the other units are:
1531369 1446527. 1994546. 1994547 1994550
1351757. 1662029. 834186. 567555. 467877
1994548 1994549
(You might have to put ha at the end. Or vr.)

Money Saving Strategies

Be on the lookout for these catalogs and coupon books, as this allows vacation goers to enjoy the very same terrific attractions with a frequently considerable discounted.
  • Is it possible to adjust your trip dates? The off-peak seasons generally offer phenomenal rates on daily rental accommodations.
  • Plenty of management companies and owners offer rate reductions for active duty and veteran members of the U.S. Military, or repeat individuals of the same rental home. Be sure to check with property manager to see if your travelling gang qualifies for a rate reduction.
  • Some homes are primarily suited for particular types of visitors. Event homes are great for weddings, receptions and corporate meetings. Some homes cater to beach bums. Other properties are positioned close to music venues. You will definitely get the best value from a rental that most closely satisfies your ideal holiday setting, regardless if it costs a tad bit more.
  • Vacation rental companies and individual property owners often offer their customers the chance to buy trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which generally costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of their trip expenses for any nights missed resulting from personal medical emergencies or weather, in addition to ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or charges, like an unforeseen hotel stay or extra gas. Trip insurance might just be a bank account-saver if the unforseen occurs .

The Rental Process

Some people are surprised to discover just how many vacation homes can be found in Charleston area. Rental accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of essential search sites like Tripadvisor and VRBO.

The vast majority of rental homes in Charleston area are privately owned and many are represented by established local property management companies. Vacation rental management companies leverage scale, staff and practical knowledge to provide trouble-free operational management on behalf of the property owner..

We've constructed a brief guide to assist you in getting most out of your rental experience.

Finding and booking the best rental:

Before you book "(8C)Historic Charm + Modern Luxury in Historic Charleston Group potential/Perfect location", read through our brief collection of issues to consider.

The Earlier, The Better

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

Find your Area and Decide Dates

Agreement can often be difficult between family members, but once this challenging part is finished everything will quickly drop in place.

Select a Size

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you need? Be mindful that most vacation rentals list maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the home's living room. You will need to determine what is acceptable for the party. Generally vacation home listings will summarize each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattresses.

Stick to a Budget

Confirm that "(8C)Historic Charm + Modern Luxury in Historic Charleston Group potential/Perfect location" fits your budget *during your desired week*. If several groups or relatives are sharing the cost, always make sure that everyone understands their responsibilities and has approved a maximum they are willing to pay. Most rental documents call for a single person to be in charge of the whole reservation.

Compose a list of "Wishes" and "Requirements"

What property features is the family interested in? Is a screened-in deck a necessity? Will the unit need to be beach front, downtown, or near restaurants? Will the rental have bikes and body boards for use during your stay? Gather a list of "needs and desires" from your party to help filter your search to the most suitable rental.

Accessibility and Special Issues

Do certain people in your group have specific needs? If wheel chair accessibility, elevators, pool lifts or other special devices are necessary, include that into your search. Nearly all rental home postings include a list of amenities.

Your Puppy Needs a Vacation, Too

Are you or other people in the family visiting with a pet dog? Animal guidelines are different at each rental. Read descriptions carefully. Read your agreement carefully! Extra fees or deposits may be applied to your agreement. When in doubt, ask the property owner and get it in writing.

Start your Search

When the place, travel dates and family members are decided, search multiple sources for the very best rental home selection. In combination with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Charleston area local rentals" for local property management companies. Local companies often times have an exclusive collection of rental properties daily and weekly.

Negotiate the Price

Re-read the description to make sure the home has everything required. If lacking, the home management company may know of comparable properties that better suit your style and budget..

Some property owners will negotiate rates, and some won't. If they are unwilling to budge on a peak-season stay, try getting an additional night. Off-peak weeks will probably be negotiable more frequently than peak-season..

Read the Total Agreement

Find out which of the following is included in your quoted rate:

  • Utilities
  • WIFI Access
  • Telephone service
  • Hot Tub Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Daily Cleaning (If Available)
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Space

What's the Cancellation Policy?

Cancellation policies are different with each vacation rental. Many rental agreements include an option for trip insurance. Trip insurance defends the renter against emergencies and weather events, It provides relief should disaster strike.

Book your Rental Property

As soon as you believe you've found "the one", start the booking process. Keep in mind that most rental agreements require a significant rental down payment and/or security deposit to safeguard the vacation rental owner.

Know Who to Call

Put the property manager's contact info into your smartphone and wallet for easy access to answers during your stay.

Congratulations! All that is left is making the most of your vacation!

During your Stay

  • Take notes of any problems when you arrive. Contact the rental manager right away to report your findings. If there is a disagreement about legal responsibility later, having the documented problems and communication attempts could be valuable.
  • Ask questions. You might need instructions for a fireplace, TV or jacuzzi. Contact your home manager. They are there to assist. A phone call can save hours of difficulties.

  • Ask a local. Locals can frequently point you in the right direction.
  • Enjoy your stay! Don't forget to protect the property owner (and your things!) by keeping the property secured while you are away, exactly like you would in your own home.

Leaving Paradise

  • Double-check each room of the rental property to ensure that you've collected all personal belongings.
  • Make sure to walk through the rental one final time and look for damages. Whenever you can, do this walk-out assessment with the property owner present. If the property manager is not available, ensure that you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How do you rate your experience? Many rental sites ask for comments after your stay . Property owners and rental managers will appreciate your glowing recommendations.
