Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This Hidden Gem is exquisitely decorated, and located in Charleston's Harleston Village. This is the perfect location for Historic Charleston's Tour of Homes March-April and The Spoleto Festival USA May-June. Off-street parking available. Close to all amenities, and within walking distance of shops, art galleries, restaurants, bars, museums, churches, Colonial Lake, the Battery. We are a short 20 -30-minute drive to the beaches and historic plantations.

The space
The Historic Gem was built in 1820 and is the dependency of a historic mansion which is over 250 years old and was the Italian Consulate in the early twentieth century. We are accredited on the National Register as a historic home. It is cozy and comfortable with original hardwood floors and new tiles. The beds have cotton sheets, there are two pillows on each bed and bath towels provided. Charleston has been repeatedly voted the friendliest and politest city in America and has been welcoming and entertaining guests for almost three hundred years. Come and experience genteel Southern Hospitality at its finest. Please do not re-arrange the decor, the furniture, pictures, flowers, mirrors, objects or curtains, or drink wine in bed. If you accidentally damage or spill something please let us know immediately so that we can take care of it. We would be grateful if you place the bedspreads on a chair if you are not using them on the bed. You are on vacation, you do not need to make up or strip the beds before your departure. We want you to be comfortable and happy. The owners live on the premises and are friendly and love meeting guests. Due to allergies, we cannot accommodate any animals.

Guest access
The apartment is on the ground floor of what was originally the servants quarters and kitchen house and is part of an estate. Charleston is a walking city and we are within 20 minutes of everywhere. The owners live on the premises and guests are welcome to see the old house and join them on the piazza/veranda for a glass of wine or sherry; upon request. Guests should park at the very back of the building and are requested not to block anyone in. Please do not enter the garden as it is unkempt.

Other things to note
Charleston is a formal city and locals enjoy dressing up, I therefore suggest you bring a formal outfit as well as your casual clothing. Or you can go shopping at Brooks Brother, Saint Johns, Gucci, Chicos and all the other fine stores. For jewelry I recommend Joint Venture which has fabulous estate pieces and Crogans which has lovely gifts as well as gorgeous jewellery (and you can purchase the exquisite a palmetto bug broach or necklace) both are on King Street. There is a farmers market on Marion Square on Saturday. On Second Sunday King street becomes pedestrianized and is very nice.

Charleston, South Carolina, United States

Located in the historic Harleston Village. In walking distances to The College of Charleston and it's beautiful campus. Colonial Lake is just two blocks from our door step and can be a gorgeous walk at sunset or sunrise. There is a playground attached to the lake, for the kiddos. I recommend renting bikes, taking a carriage tour and the walking tours. You can really get a sense of the peninsula and its history.
