The Apt. is equipped with a complete kitchen(full stove and full refrigerator)and fully stocked for the cooking you might do. Next to the living room is the newly tiled bathroom with the Victorian claw-footed tub and wrap shower. Cable-on large flat screen. +++++++++++++++++ Misquitoes a bother ?

We pay at the corner Church.This property has a cat on the premises but is not allowed in the Apt. And please No smoking on the property. CHECK IN time is 3;00. Checkout time is 11. Email about a personalized stay. If booking for just 1 night the rate is $190. $20. extra per guest per night for the 3rd person. ++++Sheets -towels provided as well as soaps and shampoos. The last picture is of Sir Robin Knox-Johnston who had booked the Apt. for 8 days and we invited him to our family dinner. A complete Honor to have had him!!!! This is unhosted and we are only here if you need any assistance. We rarely see you. We have resided in this home for over 19 years. The ONLY way you can secure the apt. for the dates you are requesting, is to send a $45.. deposit. Monthly rental will also need a deposit. Water/Cable/Internet included.

Paypal is acceptable. .We send out an email once the deposit has arrived to let you know it is secure. +We also offer an inside suite with a walk in tiled shower in case the claw-footed tub is not the best suited for you. If you should cancel a week before your booked time, you will lose your deposit.. ++++++++++++We have only 3 holidays where booking differs from the rest. ChristmasEve , and Easter. ALSOWe now live in 2 different states and I am going back and forth so every other month it is blocked off as I choose to be in Newport,R.I. There will always be a manager living there however.

Area Information

The street that the apt. is on tour yearly with the Preservation Society. We are located 2 blocks from the famous Ashley Hall girl's school and 1 block from St. Luke and St. Paul's Cathedral. Great night life -2.5 blocks away--Coast--Basil---It goes on.MAP quest should show you right near King st. --Near the visitor's center. Everyone has loved the location. Bird;s eye view shows a very large front house. The apt. is in back and has a deck off of it. The bird's Eye also show a very old house next door. It has since been purchased by a wonderful family and they have made it a show place.

.NOTE- You should always do your homework and map quest every place you want to stay in. Realize we are 2.5 blocks from the main King st. and the visitor's center. So far this is one of things that keeps everyone coming back--location location. If you want to be always on Broad st. or the Battery, you will have at least a 15 minute walk or take the trolley. Also the size of the apt. is about 550 sq. ft. and is not really the perfect size for a 3rd person. The back bedroom is large enough for a queen bed, and 2 end tables, and a chair for sitting. The living room is separated with a door. It has a sectional and a flat screen- The deck is next to the apt. We are popular because we can offer a private apt. and one can come and go as you like. Also because of the noise factor--there is very little. And lastly I try to offer the best in a bed-one I would sleep in myself. We have an inside suite with a king and kitchenette if you prefer a larger bed. A different feel altogether.

Wonderful home and Wonderful Hostess

I've stayed in private homes all over the world, and I must say that, without a doubt, Kathleen is one of the kindest, most helpful hosts I have encountered. She went above and beyond to make me feel at home. I plan on staying with her again whenever I am in Charleston and I've spread the word to my friends and family as well. The home itself is also beautiful and spacious, as is the neighborhood where it is located. It is an easy five minute walk to the top of King Street. I stayed in the main house and I slept the best I have in months. I, without hesitation, recommend contacting Kathleen for a true gem of an experience nestled in a quiet neighborhood of fabulous Charleston.

Owner's reply:

What a wonderful review! It was delightful to have you stay with us and of course we hope you will grace our home with many repeat visits. Congratulations on your up and coming wedding. What a terrific city to have this lovely event to happen. Thanks for choosing our place to stay while bravely venturing out on your own to make the plans. I am sure it will be perfect!

Felt like home in Charleston

Kathleen (the home owner) was so easy to work with and so much fun to chat with. The guest apartment was very comfortable and was kept very cool (so was a great relief from the heat outside) and it felt like home with a great sectional, beautiful wood floors, and a great little kitchen! The bedroom stayed cool, too, and the bed was big and comfortable. Kathleen was also very helpful and allowed us to park in the driveway during our stay to avoid parking tickets. The apartment had all we needed and more for our short stay in Charleston. Also, the location was perfect - just a couple blocks off the main street in town (King Street) so it was nice and quiet but within a 5 minute walk, we were back in the action - close to bars, restaurants, etc.

kathleen Russell

Owner's reply:

Thank you for the generous review. Hope you will visit again this wonderful city and come explore it in the fall and the winter. But then the spring is even better- soooo ya'll just come back for a long long visit- so much to see . We would love to have you!!!.

We'll be back

We spent three nights with Kathleen and the place was perfect. Nice and quiet around the back of the main house. Easy walk to king street restaurants and shops. Kathleen had everything we needed for our stay and we took advantage of the grill for dinner on the back porch one night. We will definitely be back on our next visit to Charleston.

kathleen Russell

Owner's reply:

We welcome you back any time and so happy you felt so comfortable in the apt. When N.Y. gets a little too loud and busy, take a break and visit us again for some Southern History and great southern food.

Would love to come visit in New Orleans. Happy your stay was one worth remembering and hope we will still be here next year to open our home for a repeat visit.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED PLACE TO STAY

I found this apartment via email search in that I was looking for something centrally located in Charleston & also economical. Based on other reviews, I chose this property for my daughter & myself. We stayed in the upstairs apart. suite and couldn't have been happier. Kathleen is a WONDERFUL host in that she's readily available if you need her, happy to recommend the best restaurants, and provide just about anything to make your stay enjoyable and comfortable. Towels are provided (including beach towels)and soap, shampoo/conditioners & body lotions. The apartment was nicely furnished with a small, basic kitchen if you cared to do basic cooking. The rooms are nicely decorated and the bed and furnishings are very comfortable. It was an easy walk to restaurants and Kudu coffee shop and minutes from Marian Square in which my daughter and I either walked to places or took the nearby trolly located at the visitors center. You don't need a car to get around unless you plan on going to the beaches. If you do rent a car, you can either park in the street or in the driveway. Kathleen even made us some delicious fruit crepes on our day of departure! I would not recommend this apartment if one has difficulty with stairs or stepping into a stand-alone tub/shower. Otherwise I would highly recommend staying here! It was perfect for us!!!

kathleen Russell

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this terrific review! I was truly inspired by how you set a vacation time aside for just you and your daughter. The trip was so carefully planned that you both didn't miss much of what Charleston offers. You should be very proud of your daughter as she should be of you. Weather was not the best but nothing but smiles daily from you both. Thanks for choosing our place and letting us get to know the two of you.

Cozy Apartment in Historic Charleston

My boyfriend and I stayed for 3 night's at Kathleen's place. The apartment has a separate entrance (it's nice that's it's private) and is at the back of the house. We were very busy the entire trip but enjoyed the accommodations very much. Wish we had more time to spend on the lovely back porch! Overall, you can't beat this value and it was great to have a kitchen and some extra space as opposed to just a small hotel room! Thanks for hosting us Kathleen!

kathleen Russell

Owner's reply:

Was so happy you had the chance to get away and stay in our private apt. Soon we will have a new place in Newport ,Rhode Island and will open up a vacation spot there. Hope you can make it!

Couldn't be nicer

A wonderful two-week stay in glorious weather. Kathleen and Robert couldn't have been nicer. Bella & Simon (dogs) too..nice because it was my first visit back in C'ton without my late pooch; they helped. Not sure about the cats! In between apt. hunting I explored some neighbourhoods not berfore seen, with the guide Robert wrote the intro for! ("Complete Charleston" by M H Moore). Upper King is hopping, the free trolley scooting down to Broad St. works a charm, the Piggly Wiggly a wee walk away but convenient, camellias and cassia in bloom. It all confirmed my desire to move to the Holy City and lo and behold found a wonderful place for April 1st. Here I come, Queen of American cities!

kathleen Russell

Owner's reply:

What a fun guest you were! So pleased our place was just what you expected and of course we are hoping to see more of you when this move becomes a reality. Charleston visitors could use your expertise in some of it's truthful tales of history- inspired by your Charleston ancestors.

Spacious and clean!

If you'd like to imagine what it was like back in historical times, rent this property. Four poster rice bed, armoire, lovely accouterments right down to the claw foot tub in the bathroom. Very private as well.

kathleen Russell

Owner's reply:

Loved having you and hope you will return.

We would stay here again in a heartbeat. The location was very convenient and the apartment was so cute. The best part was our hostess, Kathleen. She was wonderful! Highly recommend!!!

Remember--Florida is not that far away and hope you get another chance of taking that needed treasured time away from the work load to visit again, Enjoyed meeting you both! You will always be welcomed here!

Christie Weller Borchin

Fabulous!

Kathleen was such a gracious host....loved everything about her....and her Victorian house. The location was perfect and close to everything. The apartment was great for the two of us, and the bed was really comfortable! There were a few treats and a bottle of wine ready for us upon arrival. Very sweet! Anyway, loved the free trolleys,the outstanding restaurants, the visitors center, the College of Charleston, the Battery, all the history and basically all that Charleston has to offer. But, back to the accommodations, we definitely would recommend staying at Kathleen's to anyone who wanted to pay a visit.

kathleen Russell

Owner's reply:

All the way from California -A true History seeker! Brava!So happy the weather gave you some pleasant surprises. You brought a bit of the California air with you-thanks. I hope you will come back again and again!!!

kathleen Russell

Thanks for keeping the place in tip top shape! It is true about walking--the cars stay parked. Apt.B (not pictured or described in detail on the websight as Apt A is the one shown) has all of the stairs Victorian homes give-and you were a trooper as well as your daughter and friend. Brava! Hope to see you again.

Kittery, Maine

Perfect place to enjoy Charleston!

We were in town for SEWE and wanted a place with a kitchen that was in a quiet area. The apartment was clean and quite large with plenty of room for us to spread out and relax after long days. The kitchen has everything you need to cook with and plenty of space to do so. My only compliant was that the coffee pot was to small! We are big coffee drinkers and the pot was a 2 cup pot. Kathleen was great and very helpful. We had a small problem with a leak in the sink and it was fixed right away. We would stay here again the next time we go to Charleston.

kathleen Russell

Owner's reply:

So happy you picked our place to vacation in. Next time you come there will be a 12 cup coffee maker. Would LOVE to come visit your state!!!! I miss the cold cold snow and rain as I am originally from Oregon.

Christine Carter

Cozy and comfortable!

I can't say enough great things about this apartment and Kathleen's hospitality! This was our first trip to Charleston, and the apartment was cozy, clean, private, and comfortable. Best of all, it was close to everywhere we wanted to be! Within walking distance of all the great shops and restaurants, it was the perfect getaway for an extended weekend. The apartment was stocked with everything we needed- from small things like tea and coffee (and fresh bagels!), to plush and comfortable robes in the armoire in the bedroom along with the comfiest bed, and we couldn't have been more pleased. If you are looking for a great place to stay, don't hesitate and contact Kathleen! She went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and welcome. We will definitely be staying here next time we visit beautiful Charleston.

We loved having you as our guests and hope to have you back again.

Great Location and all the comforts of home

This was our first trip to charleston, great location only a few blocks to the visitors center , King Ave , Meeting Street, Marion park and LOVED those FREE Trollies! Kathleen was always there for us with helpful directions and DELICIOUS plates of home baked food. The cranberry scones and egg dishes were ohhhh so good!! The apartment was very comfortable, and stocked with coffee, teas and juices. We hated to leave but will be back soon to visit Charleston and Kathleen. Thanks Kathleen for your Southern hospitality We had so much fun sightseeing and returning to that comfy 4 poster bed!

kathleen Russell

Owner's reply:

Please come back for a stay any time!LOVED having you both.

Great place to stay when seeing Charleston

We had a wonderful time in Charleston, and thoroughly enjoyed staying in this apartment. Kathleen was a most gracious hostess. The apartment is stocked with all that you might need. Coming back to an air conditioned apartment was wonderful. Finding treats at our door each morning was an unexpected delight. What a perfect location for seeing historic Charleston ... a few blocks from the Visitors Center and the free trolley and many restaurants and bakeries. One of our favorites was Five Loaves, an easy walk. We hope to return!

Kat Sorenson

San Diego, CA

Awesome host, awesome location!

My sister and I stayed here while in Charleston for a week. We couldn't have been happier with the location, and the host. Kathleen took such good care of us, spoiled us in fact! There was plenty of room in the apartment to hang out and relax after long days of sight seeing/shopping. So close to everything in Downtown that we never used our rental car while staying in the city. The central air conditioner was a big plus as well since it was so humid during our stay, couldn't have lived without it! The king bed was very comfortbale and cozy. The bathroom was stocked with many miscellaneous items that yuo tend to easily forget. Absolutely loved it! If I ever come back I will stay here again!

Wonderful Stay

My wife & I stayed in the apartment for our 3 day stay in Charleston. Both Kathleen and Robert are wonderful hosts. The stay was very pleasant and they went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. The apartment is very spacious and close to all the wonderful places. We had the option of walking or taking the trolley from the apartment. Thank you for a wonderful, memorable stay in Charleston.

A charming stay in Charleston

This apartment provides plenty of space for 2 people and has a lot of conveniences. It is 2 blocks from King St. and we were able to walk everywhere from this location. Kathleen was so nice and welcoming. She suggested great places for us to eat and she even brought us a delicious light snack every morning. I would definately stay here again!

Location, Location, Location!

This is an excellent location in relation to downtown historic Charleston! You are only 3 blocks from the FREE trolley that will take you all over town! You can visit the Waterfront Park, the Aquarium, the ball park and historic downtown by using the FREE trolley. Be sure to get your FREE mini cone coupon for PAOLO'S gelato. Yummy! You really don't need a car. You are only 4 blocks from the visitors center and this should be your first stop, as you get lots of coupons, brochures and information to plan your days. There are numerous dining opportunities within a 5 block radius. All of them are excellent choices, with a variety of cuisine. The only problem is we couldn't try them all! Kathleen is very willing to give suggestions and directions as well. We so enjoyed our stay and strongly encourage everyone to try beautiful Charleston!

Ellen Pfeiffer

Just Fabulous!

Kathleen is the perfect hostess and this is the perfect historic home stay in lovely Charleston! The apartment is like being at home, only better. All the comforts, while providing the desired historic home look & feel! Don't miss it on your next visit to this fabulous town 'where history lives.'

Vanessa Maddalena

Wonderful stay

We had a great time staying with Kathleen. The apartment was cozy and convenient to everything. We were greeted with fresh flowers and cookies. Kathleen delivered a yummy breakfast each morning along with fresh pastries in the afternoon. We will definitely be back.

Bill DeBone

Jeannette, PA USA

Excellent Stay

I stayed in the actual house in the room that Kathleen rents out also. It had a king bed and lots of room in the bedroom. There was a microwave and refrigerator and table to eat off the bedroom. The bathroom had a great tiled shower stall and plenty of room. Kathleen will help you with restaurants and places to visit in Charleston. The location couldn't be better since so close to Visitor's Center and you can get to the Free trolley to get around within a few blocks. Plenty of places to see and to eat at within walking distance also. Charleston is a very nice city and lots of things to see. March is a great time to visit the area and Kathleen will definitely help make your stay enjoyable.

Will Nutt

Perfect Vacation

I cannot oversell the accommodations or how hospitable the host Kathleen is! I have recommended this place to all of my friends and family. The home is beautiful and the location is perfect; only a couple of block from the visitor center and if you need any restaurant suggestions Kathleen knows the best places you'd never find otherwise. I've never felt more welcome and secure while traveling!

Deborah Braden

Black Mountain, NC

Warm and Relaxing

This was ideal for us as my husband and I took a last-minute getaway to Charleston to escape the snow for a couple of days. The apartment was great and had everything we needed. We've always stayed closer to the water but this gave us a chance to discover another part of Charleston. The trolley is a few blocks away and is currently free--very easy to get on and off at all the popular places. It's a very easy walk to Hominy Grill or restaurants/bars/shopping of Upper King. Kathleen is extremely helpful.

Carl Eisler

Cowan Heights, California

Just like home

My wife and I stayed for 5 days before and 2 days after the Celebrity Mercury cruise from Charleston. Never been to the East coast and this was the most wonderful experience. The vacation/tourist information center is 2-1/2 blocks away and this alone will save $$$ on your vacation. Get 3 day trolly passes. On/Off all over town. The information center is old train station and you'll never see another like it. Kathleen and family the most helpful you'll ever want to meet. You'll add them to your Christmas list-guaranteed. Garden tours and home tours of Charleston begin in March - google it- plantation and harbor tours daily. We did them all- would not have mined missing the crusise. Charleston has that much to offer. Eating was always just around the corner, just ask Kathleen.
