Overview

Property Details

Updated: Dec 10, 2014
3 Bedroom, 2 Bath One-Storey Cottage In The Heart Of Upper King Street/dwtn

Slightly north of the College of Charleston on historic St. Philip Street this charming cottage is the perfect base to enjoy an enchanting Charleston experience. Charleston is like Rome Italy in that most of notable monuments and historic details are found in a fairly confined area. You can literally walk from the Cottage to the southernmost extremes of the Historic District in under thirty minutes. This journey will take you through the Historic King Street District, and the neighborhoods of Cannonborough, Elliottborough , Radcliffborough, Harleston Village, and finally South of Broad, until you reach the Battery itself. Go east one block and you are on King Street, the home of designer shops, eclectic boutiques, antique stores, and host of other fascinating shops as well as nationally acclaimed restaurants. Upper King is the new center of Charleston’s renowned restaurant and night life. A recent survey of the “Essential 18 Charleston Restaurants” has seven of these restaurants (Hominey Grill, Indaco, The Grocery, The Macintosh, The Ordinary, Two Boroughs Larder, , Xiao Bao Biscuit) within four blocks of the cottage.

The cottage is a three bedroom sand-alone home, set back from the street with two off street parking spaces. It is perfect for a family or friends traveling together. A spacious living room furnished with comfortable chairs, sofa, HDTV ,bar, and antique writing desk provide a nice area for entertaining and socializing with fellow guests. A full size, well equipped kitchen with adjoining dining area with seating for six connects to the living room. Each of the three bedrooms have queen size beds, chest of drawers, bedside lighting and at least one chair or sofa. There are two double closets in two of the bedrooms, and a single double closet in the third. A chest of drawers is conveniently placed in one closet in each bedroom providing fabulous storage and easy organization of your personal clothing and suitcases, etc. . The two bathrooms are convenient to the three bedrooms: one is equipped with a tub and shower combination while other has a shower only. The baths have ample storage for your personal effects. High quality linens and towels are provided.

You do not need to have automobile to enjoy Charleston while staying in the Cottage. The city operates a free tourist shuttle bus services should you decide to ride and the closest stop is only about a minute away. However, as mentioned above, two off street are included with the cottage.

Electronic equipment includes WiFi internet connection, wireless printer, cable HDTV, coffee maker, micro wave, hair dryer, toaster oven, iron with ironing board, washer and dryer.

A small outside garden area has been arranged for your enjoyment. A gas grill along with a dining table, umbrella, and six comfortable chairs are provided.

Great House!

This worked perfectly for 3 adult couples in town for a wedding. Would definitely use again. Never felt cramped for space, enjoyed the outdoor seating, overall rather quiet for being in the city.

House is ideally situated off King Street and in easy walking distance of many great bars and restaurants. Not too far from downtown but not so close as to have to deal with all the foot traffic. Jamie was great and brought us a cork screw when we had trouble finding one. Totally worth the price and I'd definitely stay there again.

Lovely property, GREAT location

  • 5 of 5
Clean, bright house with a nice outdoor space just minutes from the energy of King St. Beds were super comfortable and the home was well-equipped. Bathrooms were clean and amply stocked with towels. We spent most of our time enjoying the great weather out on the patio. Jamie was responsive and helpful and we will definitely be back.

AMAZING House!

  • 5 of 5
This house is perfect for a downtown charleston vacation! It is such a good location to be a part of Charleston's night life and delicious restaurants. The house itself is extremely nice and perfect size. The rooms are spacious, and the bathrooms are very nice and well taken care of. If there was ever a concern, the owner was quick to respond and take care of it. It is just the right size for downtown and has it's own parking right in front (which is rare for downtown). I definitely recommend staying here if you want to be a part of the lively downtown charleston life!
