Historic Downstairs Home in Downtown Charleston w/Free WiFi - Perfect for Groups

Built in the 1890s and located in a prime location near the heart of downtown Charleston, this historic first-floor getaway is the perfect home away from home for your next escapade in Charleston! With 1,500 square feet of comfort and convenience, you'll find plenty of space and two full bathrooms. This home is perfect for a weekend getaway or family gathering. If you choose to entertain at home for lunch or dinner, let the full kitchen inspire you to prepare lazy brunches and get togethers with friends.

What's nearby:
This getaway is conveniently located in Charleston's Historic Cannonborough-Elliottborough Neighborhood, a safe neighborhood where guests can walk around at any time of the day without any concerns. There are a lot of students in the area as the home is close to the Medical University of South Carolina. Even though you have a fully equipped kitchen at home, being surrounded by amazing dining options is a clear temptation and there's no one to blame! Treat your guests and yourself to a mouth-watering meal at nearby restaurants like Cannon Green, Xiao Bao Biscuit, Fuel, The Grocery, Warehouse, Leon's, Little Jack's Tavern, Pancito and Lefty, or Five Loaves Cafe. A must-visit while in Charleston is The Battery, a jaw-dropping promenade that is the perfect spot for a relaxing stroll and gives you the opportunity to admire beautiful homes and Southern-style mansions. One-and-a-half miles away is the Historic Charleston City Market, the perfect place to experience the southern charm that Charleston is known for. There you can buy local foods, toys, souvenirs, clothes, leather goods, and so much more.

Beds are new, nice and comfortable. Plenty of towels. Location was convenient. Says it sleeps 11-12, that is correct, except they fail to mention, the living area only seats 3 people.The ONE sofa & ONE person bench are worn & Uncomfortable. We had a family of 4. After being gone all day walking & exploring the city, we just wanted to come home & relax. NOT Conducive for that. Make sure you are aware that it is good place to sleep but you cannot come back & play games or even cook a pasta dinner with to sitting on the floor, so it is more like a hotel. We were definitely under the impression that this was more of a home. Also, be careful, we constantly tripped over the large area rug in LR & the showers were not cleaned well. For the price I would stay in a hotel.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Galt. We sincerely apologize for the disappointment. We would have been happy to assist with any questions or concerns if we had been notified during your time with us. Our local team strives to provide every one of our guests with the best vacation possible. We are so sorry if our standards were not met during your time with us!

Wonderful space and location. The house was decorated beautifully and has lots of natural sunlight. Many beds to comfortably fit 11 of us and a trundle if there was a 12th. Kitchen is decently equipped for basic cooking needs. Impeccable location in walking distance to King Street or a short Uber ride to downtown.

The house was a great location and a very cute/cozy historic home. Great for Bachelorette trips! We had issues the first night with the heat, but Kelsey had the mechanic over right away the next morning and the issue was fixed. The whole team that helped us was AMAZING. We will definitely be using Vacasa for all other trips to Charleston.

This house is very very nice and beautiful. Our group of 8 was able to stay comfortable throughout the week. Amazing location. The only flaw is seating in the common room and the fact that the kitchen is a tad small.
