About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Come and experience our Southern Hospitality in this circa 200 year old building located in the very heart of historic Charleston!

We offer a 5 star deluxe suite that has been lovingly restored to keep the elegance of yesteryear with all the modern luxuries and conveniences. The suite is charming, well appointed, private (only two suites in our building) and secure (multiple key less entry locks). A custom kitchenette is available in your room with a refrigerator, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, dishes and utensils. We provide soaps and towels, coffee, water, chocolates, Biscotti and a bottle of wine! You are sure to enjoy sweet dreams in our queen plush pillow top mattress dressed with 1800 (!) count linens.

Relax on our cozy slate patio or in the sitting area right outside your studio door, a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee, a glass of wine, to read a book on Charleston or to catch up on your emails (free WiFi).

We are immediately across from the Historic Charleston City Market dating back to 1804. Our location is second to none...park your car (self-parking at a discounted rate is available in a covered and camera secured garage only one block from the suites) and never get back in it if shopping on King Street, dining in first class restaurants, and discovering Revolutionary and Civil War history is your goal. You are sure to find pleasure in visiting one of America's oldest museums, touring the Charleston Harbor by boat or visiting the famous Ft. Sumter, strolling through the adjoining historic neighborhoods and sneaking views of private Charleston courtyard gardens. King Street, known for designer shopping and antiquing and is only one block away.

We own One of a Kind Art & Fine Craft Gallery, only a few steps from our suites.


We look forward to your visit!

You may also check out our other suite in the same building on Market Street (450710).

Adults only. No pets. Thank you for understanding.

About Terri and Carl

While visiting the area in 1998 we fell in love with the charm of this historic city and its surroundings, the Southern hospitality and relaxed lifestyle and decided to move here and make it home! We love it more each year. We opened One of a Kind Gallery the year we moved to Charleston. One of a Kind features art and fine crafts from nationally acclaimed artists as well as art by regional and local artisans. We have decorated the suite with lovely original art by artisans from this region. The gallery is located on the same street as the suite, only a few doors down. Let's keep it all on the same block! ;)

Why Terri and Carl chose Ansonborough

The location is second to none! This is the VERY BEST location in downtown Charleston!

What makes this studio unique

The building has a Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream shop on the ground floor and opens up to a charming courtyard in the back. There is a complimentary trolley that stops immediately in front of our building. Bike taxis and horse drawn carriages are a popular way of getting around and discovering Charleston's historic treasures and landmarks.

A Perfect Suite in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have rented many VRBO properties, both in the U.S. and in Italy. This one is right up there on our favorites list! The suite is beautifully decorated, comfortable, and well-equipped with everything you need for a pleasant stay. It is located so close to shops and restaurants that you do not need a car. Charleston is a very walkable city. There are also bicycle taxis parked nearby and a free bus service called DASH to get to attractions that are farther away. We enjoyed visiting Fort Sumter, Magnolia Plantation and Gardens, and took a very informative carriage ride around the city. We had excellent meals and recommend Fleet Landing, Frank's Seafood Restaurant, Trattoria Lucca, and Another Broken Egg Café. The Market is directly across the street and we strolled through there every day. The unit is in a 3 story building and the first floor neighbor is Ben & Jerry's! Yum! Being right on Market Street, there is some outside noise but the location and beauty of the suite make up for it. It was easy to communicate with Terri while we were booking our trip. She sent us recommendations of places to visit and where to eat. She also left us a lovely note acknowledging our anniversary and a nice treat which was greatly appreciated. Check-in and check-out went very smoothly, too. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend this property! We are sure you will love it!

Charming and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We can’t say enough good things about our stay. This is the PERFECT location for your Charleston visit! A step away from the market, endless eateries and tours. It meant so much to have a cozy nest to come home to and we cannot wait to come back!

Location is Everything!

  • 4 of 5

The location of this VRBO is incredible. Center of downtown. Also, very safe if your having a girls trip or a quiet vacation with your significant other. I will say the double electric lock on the doors is very reassuring that you have nothing to worry about. Location description is just as described, once you park your car you don’t use it again until you leave. The check in process was easy. Met with the managers at the “One of a Kind Gallery”. If you ever get anxiety about where to go, how to check in, or finding your VRBO. Don’t stress. The managers were happy to see us, had our parking pass ready to go, and even gave us a little map of the surrounding area. After a few hours of driving, I was grateful this was an easy process. The VRBO room is EXACTLY as described. Pictures don’t do it justice. Room was clean and smelt like vanilla. It was extremely welcoming- soft linens, beautiful kitchenette, and historically decorated. I will say, the air conditioner was set to 70 and it was pretty hot upstairs. I realize our room was on the 3rd floor and heat rises... but it was a little toasty. At night especially, we had to be conscious of our 2nd floor neighbors... even though the AC was set low, it was a little warm sleeping. Be aware of the noise level too. Being in the heart of downtown brings a unique experience to Charleston, but it is a city! Street sweepers and garbage trucks were every night. Just bring a fan or use the complimentary ear plugs. The owners left us a sweet surprise when arriving too- wine, a hand written card, biscotti, and little chocolates for sweet dreams. During the day, we explored amazing restaurants and bars. All the food is good. And it’s great knowing your VRBO is walking distance from everything. Be sure to check out the little market across the street and try a few of our new favorite places- Magnolias, The Gin Joint, and Callie’s Hot Little Buscuit. Enjoy your trip, you won’t be disappointed with this VRBO or the beautiful city of Charleston, SC.
