Old World Meets New Lux in an Historic Apartment

Turn back time waltzing across polished wood floors past huge sash windows in a period loft. Heritage colors and a mix of new and traditional pieces like an old-fashioned writing bureau add to the grandeur of 12-foot ceilings and original fireplaces.

What guests are saying:

“This unit and Tim were both fantastic! A real home away from home in the heart of Charleston. The house is so charming, with tons of historic character. The floors are a little slanted in some places, but I found that it just adds to the character. My husband and I stayed 5 nights and fell in love with this charming space. There is a gigantic master bedroom with king size bed, closet, and dresser. The second "bedroom" is a sunroom off the back entrance/kitchen with a full wall of windows on two sides and a curtain to close it off (no door). It's at the opposite end of the unit from the other bedroom, so it still feels private. Since there were just 2 of us, we used the second bedroom space for storing our things. The master bed was comfortable, as was the bedding. I didn't test out the second bed, but it looked comfy as well. The bathroom had plenty of storage and counter space and the provided toiletries were good quality. We had plenty of towels and those were nice too. The kitchen was amazing and well appointed. There was even an instant pot! The coffee maker is a Keurig and the host provided a good supply of k-cups. There were little coffee mates in the fridge for creamer as well. There is on-demand hot water at the kitchen sink for tea, and a French press for ground coffee. The fridge and freezer were huge and had plenty of storage space for a week's worth of groceries. There were even snacks and wine for us in the welcome basket. Such a great touch! The living room was very comfortable, with a big couch and comfortable chair and a large TV and coffee table. The TV has a Roku device, so you can sign in to apps you use at home like Netflix or Hulu. There is a full size washer and dryer in a little nook off the living room, which we were happy to take advantage of to wash our sandy beach towels and bathing suits! Tim even provided laundry pods under the bathroom sink. The location of this unit is perfect if you want to get out and explore Charleston on foot. Several times each day, the horse drawn carriage tours come down the street. It's a quick walk to King Street, if that's your thing. There is a beautiful little lake just about 2 blocks away, and you're very close to the waterfront for amazing sunset views. Queen Street Grocery is just a block away and is a great spot to pop in for breakfast or lunch to go. The off-street parking was easy to access, and we liked that our car was just outside the door so we could keep an eye on it. The area feels very safe, but I'm always wary of street parking. The one tip I'd give anyone staying here is that the shower temperature is really tricky to get right. The first day I took a scalding hot shower because I could only get it to be either full blast hot or ice cold. By the second day, we figured out that if you leave both the rain shower head AND the shower wand on (use the knob to find the spot where they both are on as high as they'll go), you can get a good hot-but-not-scalding mix. Overall this place is a 10/10 and I will DEFINITELY be back. If you're looking for somewhere to stay in Charleston, book this place now!”

What guests are saying:

“Location is great, many places in walking distance. Place was clean and well stocked with all the necessities i.e. pots, pans, seasonings, towels, soap you name it! Property is maintained by a Bill whom we met during our stay and he was a really nice guy offering local info and some history. The place itself has beautiful historic charm. Some exposed brick and high ceilings. Plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 18yr old boys! No tvs in the bedrooms only the living room but im guessing not many people are coming to this area to watch tv lol. Anyway it wasn't an issue for us and probably wont be for most. Stay here! Chris and Bill are a great team. We've already said we will book here when we return. Thanks much guys!”

Pull up a curved wooden dining chair for a relaxed family meal, then step out onto the porch for an evening drink in the fresh air. Pile up snacks on the natural-look coffee table, then spread out on the charcoal corner sofa for a cozy movie night.

What guests are saying:

“Great location and walking neighborhood! Had no idea how close we were to so many of Charleston’s wonderful restaurants! The space worked great for us, AC cooled the unit down (thank goodness!) quickly and a round of darts before dinner was so fun! Highly recommend!”
