Located in the Cannonborough-Elliottborough neighborhood of downtown Charleston near Upper King Street eateries, shopping and nightlife, Gertie's Downtown is a two story Charleston Single home that's just a short walk, bicycle or cab ride to all the action in downtown Charleston. Gertie's Downtown serves as a terrific home base from which you can launch your Charleston adventures. The home's layout, with the living room, kitchen and piazza on the first floor and the two bedrooms, two bathrooms and another piazza on the second floor, provide space for you and your guests to either interact together or getaway into separate spaces on your own.

Constructed in 1852, Gertie's Downtown is a grandiose ole dame of a home that oozes character & appeal. While the home does have many architectural features you'd expect to find in a home of this age (like old windows, doors & bricks for the non-functioning fireplaces) and is located near the Crosstown highway (which can be noisy during the day & nighttime), it has numerous modern features like its gorgeously modernized kitchen and new floor throughout the ground floor. The nightly rental rate reflects the older nature of this home. We do allow modest dogs under 40 lbs at this home. Please note that there is no dedicated off-street parking for this home.

With close proximity to upper King Street and the Crosstown (Septima P. Clark Parkway), the location of this home enables guests to walk to eateries, stores & other cultural delights and provides fast road access to Mt. Pleasant, West Ashley, all local beaches, Charleston County parks, historic plantation homes along the Ashley River and other local attractions. There are a lot of new local eateries -- as well as all the offerings of Upper King Street -- within a couple of mins. walk from Murphy on St. Philip. With D'Allesandros Pizza (a local pizza institution), Brown's Court Bakery (striking breads & pastries) and the Ordinary (high end oyster & seafood restaurant) located just a couple of blocks away, Gertie's Downtown guests have many unique local food options to discover. Walk to Barsa for some tapas or visit the Daily for some coffee or locally made kombucha!

The home is located in a very friendly neighborhood which is undergoing vibrant growth and change, as is much of Charleston. This is the best neighborhood in Charleston if you are looking to be steps away from King Street and experience the area as a local in a transitional neighborhood among young professionals, students and longtime local families. All the neighbors are very nice and welcoming. The diversity and richness of history in the Cannonborough-Elliotborough neighborhood makes this part of town beautiful to locals and visitors alike. Gertie's Downtown is ideal for folks who savor a diverse, vibrant and eclectic neighborhood where you can watch the reinvestment & revitalization in old historic properties going on in real time. Parts of the neighborhood might still look a bit rough but it is safe.

We are close to the crosstown parkway, which may impact light sleepers with the highway traffic noises. There is also construction in the street which is nearly complete but may result in additional noise during the day.

Tricks and tips to get the perfect Charleston rental experience:

Getting the most from your spending budget:

  • Book your vacation home as soon as possible. Rental schedules generally become available 12 months in advance (or in September just after Summertime ends). Many families book their Summer vacations during Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Eve gatherings. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Summertime is high season in Charleston. To get the best value, consider changing your family's Charleston area trip dates to the Spring or Fall months. May, September, and October offer pleasant temperatures, less crowded beaches, and reduced traffic. Many vacationers use this strategy to reserve larger homes, or to book an oceanfront vacation rental that would otherwise be unavailable during the Summer months.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective vacation rental company or host whether your family qualifies for a price reduction.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners often offer customers an option to obtain vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which costs 1% - 5% of the base stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for days missed as a result of medical-related emergencies or weather disasters, as well as evacuation charges, such as an unexpected hotel stay or extra gas expenses. Trip insurance might be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask the property owner for specifics.
  • Find a copy of your local Charleston area visitors guide upon checking in. If your rental property doesn't have one, you can find them at local grocery stores, shopping centers, and visitor centers. In addition to great articles, visitor guides have coupons for nearby restaurants, attractions, and tours.

Narrow your rental Search:

  • Start by selecting your vacation dates and a maximum budget.
  • Decide how many beds and the configuration you need. Walk to Upper King! Renovated Kitchen, Double Piazzas. Original Charleston Home Experience. has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our rentals search.
  • Precise descriptions of bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is regularly available online. If they are not listed, call the property owner before booking the vacation home. Remember that most property listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds. You'll need to work out which bed configuration is optimal for your vacation group.
  • Are you bringing the family pet? Many vacation homes allow animals, but guidelines and restrictions apply. Type of pet, size and breeds may be limited. Ask your property manager before booking, and study your rental agreement! Additional fees or charges could be applied to your invoice.
  • Are you visiting for a single event? Use a map search to find nearby properties.
  • Suitable accessibility can make or ruin a vacation for the less-mobile. Confirm all required amenities are included before booking.

Tips for your stay:

  • Review arrival and departure procedures before traveling. Save the instructions to your phone, and take a printed copy.
  • Property managers are there to help! Feel free to ask any questions before, during, or after your stay.
  • Lock your rental home while you're out. Protect your property!
  • Note any damages to the property during check in, and immediately contact the property manager. We specifically recommend texts and e-mails, as they usually contain time stamps that can be useful if there is a dispute.
  • Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking policies can make a stay more pleasurable. You will enhance your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors can be an excellent resource to find the best local restaurants, beaches, and hangouts.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Locals can frequently help. Who better to ask where to grab the best tacos, have a great night out, or the best spots for crabbing?
  • Just prior to departing, take a walk-through to make sure you did not forget anything. Check bathrooms, dressers, and closets for hidden items. Clean the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Go through the rental a final time and keep an eye out for any damage. We suggest inspecting the property with the host whenever you can (often this isn't possible). If the property manager isn't available, take photographs of the property to record its condition at check-out.
  • After your trip, leave feedback! Property owners rely on excellent feedback to compel new bookings. They'll be thankful for your review. Alternatively, if something wasn't right, other families will appreciate that you share your experience find their best vacation rental. Please be objective. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the manager could control the issue, and if so, whether they responded quickly to solve it.
