HISTORIC PLANTATION HOME DOWNTOWN CHARLESTON

Charleston House Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath With full kitchen and Living Room

This home is the Historic Gate House of the William Rett Plantation in Annsonboro. We are located just off Meeting Street. There are many excellent restaurants less than one block from the house. The Gate House is located in a beautiful garden which is often on the Charleston Garden Tours. You are shaded by ancient live oak trees with Spanish moss.You can walk to anywhere downtown.

History: The Gate House is part of the William Rett Plantation. The main house is considered by many to be the oldest house in Charleston. The market area is two blocks away. Carriage tours pass the house throughout the day.

Home Tours: This is the perfect location for the spring and fall Charleston Tours of Historic Homes. We are often on the tour. The garden outside the gate house surrounding a pond with water lilies, Koi fish and our fountain is one of the few gardens in Charleston visible from the street.

RUN DOWN, DIRTY, OVER GROWN

  • 1 of 5
These owners don't deserve this place. Their lack of respect for a potentially great environment is appalling. Great location doesn't mean anything when the windows are so dirty you can't see out of them. I am not a neat freak but this was crazy. All the electrical is run with extension cords all over the rooms. The dorm sized refrigerator is askew on a box and rocks like it is about to fall over when you open the door. The towels are nicer at a hostile. The grounds unkempt. The hostess is crass and inhospitable. It's a real shame.

PERFECT CHOICE FOR WALKERS....

  • 5 of 5
We returned today from two days at the Gatehouse and things went extremely well. There was a little difficulty communicating our needs since our plane was late and we did not have the phone number of the owner's assistant since the owner preferred being called directly, but she was on site and let us into the home. The house is three buildings away from Meeting Street and has a lovely garden with off-street parking so we could leave the car and walk anywhere we wanted to go. Hyman's, the highest-rated seafood restaurant in the south, is two blocks away and the open market is about three blocks in the opposite direction. The accommodations were comfortable and the artwork was local. An effort seemed to have been made to make the home comfortable.

CHARMING ENCHANTING!

  • 5 of 5
We LOVED this place. Our time there was an experience we will not forget. It could not have been a better location to be on foot. the free trolley was one block away, grocery store 3 blocks and 5 star restaurant literally across the street with many others a block or tow away. The Gate House had everything we needed for our stay.

CARRIAGE HOUSE

  • 3 of 5
This rental is in an excellent location. You can walk anywhere you want to go and there are plenty of restaurants and stores nearby. The property itself, however, is not in the best state of cleanliness or repair. In that respect, we were disappointed. Also, the owners are not very communicative. We never received acknowledgment of our deposit, nor instructions for finalizing the transaction. Emails regarding how to access the property went unanswered . It took two telephone calls to get that information. All in all, not a top rating from us.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry this group was not pleased. The property is over 200 years old and kept as original as possible. It has not been overly restored. We follow the Historic Charleston motto of "Gut Fish Not Houses". For groups who want accommodations in "better" condition we recommend three luxury hotels with simulated historical features within one block. We have not had any prior complaints with monthly rentals for over 10 years. We did have a death in the family near the time of this visit and may not have been able to respond as promptly as they would like.

PERFECT ACCOMODATION AND LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This property is ideally located in the heart of historic downtown Charleston. Easy walking distance to all restuarants, shopping (fashion and grocery) and everything else Charleston has to offer. The accomodation is perfect for one couple with seperate upstairs bedroom and full bath and living and kitchen downstairs. The garden is fabulous and the owners are very friencldy and full of local information yet very discreet letting us feel like the place was our own. Full kitchen facilities including a washer and dryer made it perfect for an active vacation of cycling and running.
