The Neighborhood

The house is located in the quiet neighborhood of Eastside, away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist areas. You’re still within walking distance of Charleston’s main attractions but you’ll be able to return to a peaceful neighborhood at the end of the day. It’s an up-and-coming part of town that has new restaurants and bars popping up on every corner! Just a 15-minute walk from the house is upper King Street where you’ll find plenty of exciting bars, gourmet restaurants, and unique shops to visit. This popular area is a great place to start your adventure. The French Quarter is another very distinct part of Charleston that you won’t want to miss. Its cobble stone roads and gas lamps will take you back in time to the city’s colonial era. The large art community here showcases local artists and features an Art Walk four times a year. As you walk along the coastal area of the city, you’ll find The Battery, a seawall and promenade. Many historic and grand houses line The Battery, making it an ideal place to go for a scenic stroll. Every Saturday, Marion Square hosts a farmers’ market with locally-grown produce, handmade goods, and delicious food stands. It’s also a lovely green space for Charleston locals and tourists alike to soak up some sun. The best part is that it’s only a few minutes walk from the house. Also a good local seafood restaurant is located across the street at the historical Cigar Factory. It is called the

Owner Story

I'm Stephen and I have been a Charleston local since 2007. I moved here to attend the College of Charleston and have YET to see a reason to leave this beautiful city! Charleston has been nothing but great to me and I love being able to help share my experiences, home and knowledge of the city with others who wish to come and explore!

September 2022

Great location, felt safe to walk to some delicious local restaurants and a quick drive everywhere else downtown and in Mt pleasant. Was able to fit 3 trucks in driveway and 1 bathroom (which I was a bit worried about) worked out perfectly. Host was very responsive and solved any issues quickly! Would book here or at any of their properties again.


September 2022

Lovely AirBnb for a week or a weekend stay in Charleston. No more than a 5 minute drive from just about anywhere you need to go. 3 bedrooms, a great porch and backyard, and everything you need is stocked in the house. Not sure you can beat this place for the price and the hosts are very helpful. The place has a good TV and speaker you can connect to through Apple TV, a good kitchen with everything you’d need, and a large living area to hang out with friends. The area isn’t walkable however it’s a very very short car ride and a sub $10 charge for rides to town and bars. Loved our stay!


August 2022

Located just a short drive from some attractions. And had a great backyard for relaxing in with the putting green and hammock.


August 2022

This place was beautiful and the host was very accommodating! The AC did go out but the response for it was immediate and even though it couldn’t be fixed the concierge helped remedy it was a portable unit. On top of that we were refunded for an entire night! Hospitality at its finest! I would stay here again!
