Planning a getaway to a new city opens the doors to experience a different culture, different vibe and a new point of view. Our charming, historic city of Charleston offers southern hospitality at it’s best, and what better way to experience it all than to fully immerse yourself? An extended stay at a local vacation rental is just the ticket – not to mention one in the heart of downtown – a

When you book your stay at any of our long-term rental properties in the center of Charleston, you’re calling this home for the next 30 days (or more). And that’s exactly how we want you to feel – at home. 

Upon arrival, you’re warmly greeted by a member of the Concierge team who provides a list of local restaurants, shopping, and activities. After exploring the space and maybe dipping into your “Taste of Charleston” welcome box, and having a glass of wine on the private piazza, you’ll feel like walking down the street to become familiar with your new stomping grounds.

Despite the fact that you have a fridge fully-stocked with the items you pre-requested before your arrival, you may decide to dine out for your first night in town and experience the culinary delights for which Charleston has come to be known. The wine bar, Bin 152, located down the street, makes for the perfect mix of eclectic flavors and short distance to home. And, by the time your stay is over, the bartender will more than likely know you by name. If you’re searching for a classic Charleston dish, say no more and walk the short distance to either Poogan’s Porch82 Queen, or Husk, all three are conveniently located to one another. You can enjoy a variety of Southern cooking including shrimp and grits, fried green tomatoes, or she crab soup. 

Staying in one of our Charleston vacation rentals for an extended period of time truly allows you to get to know the historic city, meet the locals, and even feel like one yourself. You can create a routine and be fully immersed in the liveliness that is the Holy City. From enjoying a morning run down Rainbow Row and around The Battery, to getting your coffee and scone from Millers All Day, you start seeing the city from the eyes of a local instead of a tourist. And with walking distance to the shopping mecca that is King Street, you may find yourself in need of a larger closet when you return home!

Whether you’re here for work or play, coming home to a comfortable, clean space after exploring the city, or a long day at the office, is all you need. And with our Luxury Simplified Retreats concierge team, it’s like having a best friend live nearby – always there to help, offer advice on activities or restaurants, or arrange a ride when you need it. A stay at any of our luxury vacation rental homes in downtown Charleston or on Folly Beach offers more than a traditional hotel stay.
