About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5

Enjoy the convenience of being close to everything! Park your car, you won't need it. Enjoy the world famous Husk Restaurant (our neighbor) or take a short stroll to Battery Park. We are located in the heart of what gives Charleston its charm with countless shops, restaurants, parks, and tourist sites all within walking distance... real walking distance...not miles-- blocks. Our home is centrally located in the historic district very close to intersection of Queen St. and King St. which puts you in the middle of the action. Interested in going more than a few blocks? Hop on the bikes provided and access the distant reaches of the city. It's all close. Done exploring for the day? Settle in bed to our high quality linens and super comfortable mattresses. Our family wants it comfortable and clean, and that's what you will get. Make it home!

About Katie Hopkins

Here at Porch Properties we are all about family, fun, and the experience! Fiske and I hope that you and yours will love these little gems as much as we do. Life is crazy busy! I know! We have two little ladies at home, but getting away is easier than you think.

Whether you are heading out west to find adventure in Driggs, in need of a quiet mountain get away in Sautee Nacoochee, cheering on the Dawgs in Sanford, or strolling the streets in search of southern charm in Charleston, we have the perfect place for you to make it home while you are there. Settle in, spread out, and stay a while...and then come back for more!

Why Katie Hopkins chose Historic Old City

We love Charleston. It is dripping with southern charm...and the food ain't bad either! The best part...park your car because you can explore this beautiful city on foot, that way you won't miss a thing!

What makes this apartment unique

Location, Location, Location. The oldest Grocery Store in Charleston, Queen St. Grocery, is located across the street. Wake up and grab a cup of fresh coffee or stop in for the Cuban at lunch. Less than 2 blocks away from Husk, y'all really, we are a SHORT walking distance to everywhere you want to be.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Katie & Fiske,

I hope that you are both doing well. Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay in Charleston. Your place is simply amazing!

Very stylish & classy, but so comfortable and homey at the same time. The location was perfect – minutes from everything. We had a nice visit to Folly Island; we also brought our bikes and enjoyed exploring Charleston which proved to be very bike friendly. We walked down to Market Street, which took no time at all, and found some of the greatest food (awesome sandwiches and outstanding crapes) just across the street at Queen Street Grocery. Thank you both for opening your lovely home so that others may enjoy the lovely, historic district of Charleston.

Characterful and well located property with nice street views. Lovely bathrooms.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay and enjoyed the old Charleston feel of the property, with it’s undulating floors and lovely big old windows leading to a balcony with a great view. We especially enjoyed waving to passing carriage tours and sipping wine on the balcony.

Our only complaint relates to the mattresses and bedding. Both mattresses were lumpy and had collapsed springs in places. The sheets were somewhat threadbare, and the fitted sheets had lost their elastic, which meant they bunched up every night and came loose. Otherwise, we found everything quite nice.

The home is beautiful and looks exactly like it does in the pictures

  • 4 of 5

The location of the home was great. We could walk to almost everything we did in the area. Loved sitting on the front balcony relaxing and enjoying a cocktail. The ease of getting our check in information was amazing. I only have 3 cons, otherwise I would have given 5 stars. The front staircase could really use a handrail, at least on the bottom portion of the stairs, and the outside back staircase could really use a bright warning stripe on the bottom step because as you are coming down, that last step to the landing is a bigger step down than the other steps. We had breakfast at home a couple of mornings (although there is a great little shop across the street that you can get breakfast and coffee) and it would have been nice to have a larger skillet so that we could cook all our eggs at one time. Also, I am sure this is a temporary issue, but there were 4 of us staying there and there were only 3 coffee mugs. The last note would be that the front bedroom is a bit noisier than the back bedroom. But, we knew going in that this was an older home, so noise might be a factor, and we wanted to have the experience of a true Charleston home instead of staying in a hotel room. Overall, I would definately recommend staying here. The house is charming, the location is wonderful and the city is fantastic! We had put in a call to the owners and they returned our call in less than 10 minutes.

Great location, nicely appointed home

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was perfect for two couples. Kitchen and laundry were well equipped. Living room was great for hanging out in the evenings. Beds were comfy and linens were lovely (although we were missing dish towels in the kitchen). One caveat: the front bedroom, which faces Queen Street, is quite noisy; one of us had to use ear plugs to get some sleep. (Draperies on the windows might help to cut the noise somewhat?) Note that the stairs at the front of the house (both outside and inside) have no handrails. We mostly used the back door for that reason, although the back steps did get slippery in wet weather. (Speaking of wet weather: we trust the leaky vent in the dining room ceiling has been repaired ;->) Also note: the parking space is very tricky to navigate because of a tree stump against the fence on one side. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
