About Ashley

The owners are Ashley & Batu Aytore. They own and operate the antique shop below the apartment for rent. This is very convenient, as we are usually around to handle any questions you may have.

Ashley purchased this studio in 1991

Why Ashley chose Historic Old City

This building has been in the family since 1991 and we feel as we own a little slice of heaven here in Charleston.

What makes this studio unique

We think the most wonderful thing about the apartment is the location. It is conveniently located for shopping, antiques and lots of fabulous restaurants. Walk everywhere.... Forget you own a car!!!

Beautiful property right in the middle of the historic district! Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for the Cooper River Bridge Run. It was the perfect location to everything. They have some the sweetest neighbors and a great view of King Street. Everything we needed was there, the bed was very comfortable and the room was beautifully decorated!

Great place located in heart of Charleston. Near college campus which meant lots of cheaper meal choices. Studio was clean and well furnished.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Charleston very much! The location of this studio apartment is within walking distance to everything. We also loved the decorating and the bed was very comfortable. There was a noticeable musty smell within the apartment and on our last morning the water pressure in the shower was not very good. The thing that surprised me the most was that there were no toiletries. We use VRBO quite frequently and this is the first place where we had to go around the corner to Walgreen's to purchase shampoo, conditioner and soap. I would think these would be provided, as even low-end hotels make these items readily available.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. We do not advertise that we provide toiletries, as we are not a hotel. However, in the furture we will provide bar soap. The water pressure in Charleston is not the greatest. For this reason, we had a pump installed to take care of the problem. If it was still a problem, we wished you would have said something. We also have very hard water in Charleston and all that needed to be done was to clean out the deposits of the shower head. The “musty” smell complaint is a first. We have had our vrbo for 4 years and have not had that complaint. We will look into it.

Great location! Fantastic room!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment we stayed in had a full kitchen, great room and bed. Nice eclectic decor that would make anyone jealous. Our friends stayed at the hotel down the street and our room was at least 3 times the size! Comfortable, class A amenities. A little dark inside the room during the day but there were several windows and a sky light. We would have loved for the fireplaces to be functional but it understandable why they are not. Would stay there again!
