Historic Old City Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Full Apartment:2 King Bedrooms/2 Baths, Living Room, Fireplace, Kitchen & Dining

Welcome to 19 Broad.  As Proprietors, we care deeply about our property and our guests.

PLEASE NOTE: Add a 3rd bedroom and bath to this apartment if needed. See our listing www.vrbo.com/859047

19 Broad is downtown Charleston's finest apartment accommodation, with a location second to none — perfect for couples, families and business travelers who seek the space and privacy of a full apartment without the expense of a hotel room.  Normandy Farm Artisan Bakery occupies the first floor and Oak Steakhouse next door, affording guests direct access to an authentic European-style bakery and fine dining steakhouse restaurant.

Our charming circa 1794 property is located at the crux of the French Quarter and historic Charlestowne neighborhoods, within one block of the best shopping, dining, history and architecture in Charleston.  19 Broad features original Charleston brick hearths and heart pine floors, period millwork, original moulding and spacious rooms with high ceilings. 

The property is a renovated and updated bank building dating back to 1794, prominently positioned on historic Broad Street and surrounded by Charleston’s most famous architecture, parks and gardens. Our guest rooms feature quality home furniture, bathrooms with tile floors and showers, large social spaces, cooking and dining spaces, complimentary WiFi and basic cable TV. The entire property can hold ten guests, but can also be subdivided in order to accommodate multiple smaller parties entirely independent from one another.

Accommodations at 19 Broad include a pied-a-terre apartment and two studio apartments, which may be rented independently of, or in conjunction with, one another:

*Visit our Authentic King Studio, Sleeps 2-3, at vrbo.com/859047

True Pied-A-Terre:

After ascending 19 Broad’s exterior staircase off Broad Street, guests enter a secured foyer located off the second floor landing. Through the foyer, guests continue straight ahead to arrive in a spacious living room, complete with two large sofas, several armchairs, coffee table, gas fireplace, basic cable TV, kitchenette, dining for six to eight and full bathroom with tile shower.

At the south end of the living room is the entrance to the master bedroom featuring a king bed, private bathroom with tile shower and basic cable TV.

At the north end of the living room is the entrance to the guest bedroom featuring a king bed, gas fireplace, basic cable TV and incorporated living area with seating and coffee table.

The True Pied-A-Terre features original floors, walls and ceiling, and massive antique windows overlooking Historic Broad Street, as well as, a flagstone courtyard below.

More Information:

19 Broad affords all guests complimentary coffee, paper towels, bath towels, wash cloths, toilet tissue and shower gel. While we are happy to direct guests to nearby pharmacies and convenient stores, we do suggest that guests bring personal toiletries and cosmetics in order to ensure optimal comfort. All beds are neatly made with freshly laundered sheets prior to arrival.

Our neighborhood constitutes a unique blend of commercial properties and residential homes. Accordingly, the City of Charleston enforces a noise ordinance between the hours of 11:00 pm and 7:00 am. Out of respect for our loyal guests, as well as our neighbors in the City of Charleston, we ask our guests to exercise consideration of their surroundings and to adhere to this ordinance from the hours of 11:00 pm to 7:00 am.

For any and every occasion, a vacation in Charleston deserves respectable celebration. Our property is the perfect space for large families, girls’ weekends, golfing trips, wedding parties, traveling couples, and more.

Larger parties requiring 3 bedrooms and baths may add our King Studio which is accessed via a common foyer. See VRBO #859047

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Jan,

I am sorry it has taken me so long to contact you, but I wanted to make sure I took the time to let you know how much I enjoyed renting the studio. It ended up just being my mother and I, and the space far exceeded our expectations. The location was perfect and I was ready to move-in permanently!

I have traveled all over, and am happy to say that Charleston still remains one of my favorite places to visit.

Thank you for providing us with such a great place to stay.



Best,

Lauren

Location is fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough how fantastic the location is!! We were in the heart of Charleston! Every morning we were able to get up and walk with beautiful views and sights a block away. The apartment was very spacious with the rooms on opposite sides of the living space. The only negative was that it was fairly dated, but it's historic Charleston so you take the good with the bad! Although dated, the apartment was very clean and we felt very safe the entire stay! Would definitely recommend and stay again :)

Location, Location, Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonder stay at 19 Broad. The location can't be beat as you are only minutes away from The Market, King St, Battery Park, numerous restaurants and Waterfront Park. The host were very accommodating with an early check-in and helpful with all our questions. Parking is not ideal as you have to use the parking garage a few blocks away at $16 for overnight but we quickly realized that's the norm for Charleston and many of the nice hotels charge even more. Unless you are leaving for an excursion out of the City center area, walking is the way to go or you can get Uber or Bike Taxi.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the large rooms and high ceilings and the feel of history in this rental. The beds were so comfortable and it was great not to have to run out for toilet paper or coffee--many rentals do not supply enough of those items! We did not have a single complaint about the rental, and loved that we were able to check in early--very flexible hosts! The location was perfect for exploring historic Charleston and superb restaurants were not far away. I would love to come back.

A wonderful downtown apartment.

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations and downtown location were perfect. The apartment was amazing and spacious. The beds were very comfortable. The air conditioning was perfect and felt great after being out all day in the heat. The internet was a little spotty at times, but did work most of the time. The one thing we would have liked was a washer and dryer. We would definitely stay again in this lovely apartment.

We loved our stay in the Jacobson Building!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the Jacobson Building apartment was fabulous! It was wonderfully furnished, the decor was pretty, yet cozy, and the location can not be beat. The apartment is in a very old building and the charm and much of the character has been retained though comfort is not compromised. Jan is also a tremendous pleasure and a blessing to work with. LOVED it and we hope to be back soon!
