Relax with a cup of tea or a Mint Julep in your downtown Historic Charleston apartment while others are fighting traffic. The Peninsula of Charleston is where you want to be if you are weary of the syncopated unrest of a crazy world. Come here and set your feet to a saner tempo, where Dubose Heyward and George Gershwin composed Porgy and Bess, the first American opera. The streets of Charleston have some thing to give them that walk them in a receptive mood that will make life forever richer. Charleston is America's best kept secret.
This is a spacious three bedroom, two bath apartment, with full kitchen and dining room. The back bedroom has a queen size reproduction Old Charleston Rice Bed and matching bathroom.
The front two bedrooms are of a double bed and another with twins. Bedside tables and lamps are on each side. Attention to details is visible in tatting and embroidery of white linens, carefully chosen period furniture, and vintage china and silver. The purpose is to give you an affordable Old Charleston experience, as if you lived here. There is a two car garage in back for off street parking.
The Charleston Tea Party Private Tour gives you a chance to get to know the vacation rental owner, a native Charlestonian, and have her as your own personal concierge. She takes you to breakfast on the Battery and to her house for Tea at lunch time.

My husband had the wisdom to buy this property while we were dating. I never dreamed my Charleston Tea Party Private Tour and this property would marry. We keep it affordable for those who want to savor Charleston for a week while they go on my tour and get to know Charleston. We live downtown as well on the Ashley River with our 3 teenagers and English Springer Spaniel, Chesterfield, who reflects being made in the image of God better than we do. I invite you into our home for Tea at lunchtime at the end of my tour.
My husband and I are both from Charleston, grew up here, and never desired to live anywhere else. He was living in the large historic house across the street from this vacation rental, renting from the childless couple who lived there and loved him, when this rental house came on the market. Instead of living the high life while dating me, he wisely invested in this property. I thought this property would provide opportunities for people who love Charleston to come with family or friends and stay longer at a more affordable price.
Everywhere you want to go in the historic district is within walking or bicycling distance. The spacious apartment is clutter free, each being a room with a view. You can bring or rent bicycles. There is room in the private garage for them and your car in the back. A washer and dryer are also in the back. It is a vibrant neighborhood of young medical professionals, historic houses, and popular restaurants and bakeries nearby. There is a big picnic basket in the kitchen you can fill for a picnic to a plantation or park. Sugar bakery on Cannon St around the corner and Saffron's on East Bay are great for collecting baked goods for a tea party picnic. You will find a gallon jar for sweet iced tea from Charleston grown tea and Confederate mint. More mint is growing in the flower box out front. The trolley is free and picks up on Cannon St, a one minute walk from the house, taking you all over the peninsula of historic Charleston. A map with its stops in a guide book awaits you in the kitchen. The history of Charleston is to be savored, the visual richness of English architecture and garden designs to be enjoyed. One lifetime is not enough.
It is a great getaway for Citadel and College of Charleston parents and family to visit their sons and daughters and provide a home away from home.
