Our Rental is the first floor of this historical duplex in the downtown area of Charleston. The area is the center of the new trendy part of town close to new restaurants, breweries and music venues. The Palmetto brewery has open parties every Friday nights, also look for Edmonds Oast, Park Café, Taco Boy, Moe's Crosstown Tavern, The Royal American, Rutledge Cab Co and The Tattooed Moose.
The home is very large 3 bedroom and is accommodating for a family or 2 to 3 couples to share. It has a wonderful covered front porch, perfect for coffee in the morning or relaxing with a glass of wine in the evening. The full kitchen and large dinning room allows for you to stay and cook in some of the local seafood, but the culinary scene of Charleston is so great, you have to experience it as much as you can!
You have the first floor apartment all to yourself. We live in a completely separate home above. There is ample parking on the street and a spot behind the house.

Please, no smoking in the home.
Great house in a convenient location. We were in town to play golf and experience Charleston, both of which were easily done from this central location. The house was clean, comfortable with all the amenities. Michele and Billy and were great hosts and very knowledgeable about the city , offering suggestions for good food and drink. We had a great time.
Great apartment in a fantastic location, was perfect for the few days spent in Charleston. Everything was extremely clean and tidy. Keys easy to pick up and drop off. Thanks
Great location right near The Citadel. Felt very safe in the neighborhood. Easy access to downtown and outlet to James Island. House was clean and was accommodating for 4 couples. The only drawback is it is a single bathroom house. Since Bill and Michele live directly upstairs, we were unable to lock our door one night before heading out. One call to Michele and she was able to go lock the door for us and provide us with additional keys for the future. Far above and beyond exceeded my expectations!
Michelle and Billy were fantastic hosts. They were very responsive and were close by if we needed anything. The home was very clean. Beds were fantastic - good mattresses and bedding. Plenty of soft, thick towels. The house is about 1.5 miles from the main section of King Street but it's an easy walk - especially welcome after eating such wonderful meals during our stay.
Wonderful weekend stay! We rented Michele and Billy's space with a group of friends while we were all in town for a wedding. Our hosts were communicative throughout the planning process and accommodating once we arrived and requested an air mattress and extra set of keys. The apartment was spacious and comfortable for our group and was perfectly located within walking distance of our weekend's festivities.
The house was so cute and a perfect fit for our group! It's clean & spacious, and while not quite downtown, it's a super quick cab ride away (or decent walk on a nice day). There are some other restaurants, cafes & bars within quick walking distance as well. The only minor concern was the one bathroom situation (for 5 of us) but it wasn't an issue as the house had plenty of room to get ready. Our lovely hosts were great with answering our questions and provided some excellent dining recommendations. Would definitely stay here again!
We really enjoyed our stay here! The house is located just a short 5-10 minute drive from all the best shopping, restaurants and sight seeing! The house was extremely spacious - with large bedrooms and lots of room for cooking! The bathroom was completely remodeled and spacious as well! But I think our favorite part was the front porch - a great place to have coffee and greet the day.
The house is in a transitional neighborhood but we never felt unsafe. We parked out front on the street and had no issues whatsoever.
We really enjoyed our stay!
