The space
Southern Shangri-La on Coming is located in downtown Charleston, but it feels like paradise a world away. From the jungly wall mural and lush landscape to the Balinese furniture, it'll be your own getaway in the heart of the city.

Our goal is for you to enjoy our version of Shangri-La a place inspired by personal travels, our love for plants and surf, and support for local artists.

You will find this light blue building located on the left side of Coming Street. When you first arrive you will be greeted by our oyster shell driveway, lush landscape and local artist Carly Thomas’ wall mural.

Once you've pulled into the back and parked, you will enter through the side door along the driveway. Apt B, which is 1 of 4 apartments in the building, will be at the bottom of the stairs on your right. Each door has individual keypad entries, and codes will be provided upon arrival.

A bottom floor apartment which offers natural light and a cozy 700 sqft footprint, Apt B is perfect for a 4 person group. This apartment provides a spacious living area, a newly updated kitchen, smart television with You Tube TV , and wireless internet, in hopes to make your stay feel like a home away from home.

The apartment is located in the Elliotborough/Cannonborough neighborhood known as the "Short term rental district." You find that we are surrounded by great restaurants, coffee shops/bakeries and all the night life. With everything so close, it's a great spot if you'd like to explore the streets and neighborhoods of Charleston by foot or bike.

As this is 1 of 4 apartments, there is a high chance that there will be other guest staying during your vacation. Please be respectful of your neighbor and say hello. Southern Shangri-La welcomes all walks of life!

Being on the bottom floor you can hear some foot traffic from the apartment above. We have taken this into account in our pricing but you can also check out our other upstairs apartments!

Lastly, nothing is worse than accommodation that is not accommodating. Our ultimate goal is for our guest to enjoy our property and our beautiful city, so if there is anything we can do to improve your stay or future guests' stays then please let us know!

With its friendly neighbors, cozy restaurants, and tree-lined streets, our neighborhood will immerse you in Charleston’s classic charm. This house is perfect for a family or group seeking a fun, culinary and cultural vacation. Popular dining spots in the neighborhood include The Ordinary, The Grocery, Xiao Bao Biscuit, Fuel, Ice Bing, Goulette, The Jetty, Five Loaves café, R Kitchen, Poke San, Pink Cactus, and the Warehouse for drinks.

Charleston, SC born and raised. After graduating college and giving the 9-5 a good try, I moved to Australia for a year and ever since have been doing whatever I could do to continue traveling and surfing. My travel experiences played a major role in wanting to be an airbnb host and help others create travel memories of their own. I've formed some of the best relationships staying in Airbnb’s and meeting people from all over the world. I now live part time in Charleston, part time in my van (her name is Lizzo) and part time wherever the waves seem fun and there's an internet connection :)
