Plane tickets are booked, bags are packed, and you even remembered to grab your cell phone charger!  Now all that’s left to do is travel to Charleston for a one-of-a-kind vacation along the South Carolina coast. But how do you transform an ordinary vacation into an unforgettable one? We’ve pulled together some top tips for making the most of a holiday in the Holy City and it starts with planning ahead.

Concierge Services

A vacation really isn’t a vacation if you’re doing all the work! Today’s travelers want to spend less time on “all the little details” and more time on enjoying an immersive experience once they arrive at their travel destination. That’s why it’s important to work with a team that is dedicated to handling the planning and prep before you arrive. Look for a vacation rental company that offers additional services like airport transportation, stock the fridge, in-home chef, party prep or bike and beach rentals.  That way, when you arrive all you’ll have to worry about is getting started on the rest and relaxation.

Experience Packages


With a dazzling array of sights to see and explore, and one-of-a-kind activities all around Charleston, it’s hard to know where to start!  While there are plenty of good reasons to spend some time simply exploring this charming historic city by foot, or just lounging on the beach, it doesn’t hurt to pre-book tours or pre-order tickets to events. During the spring festival season in Charleston, which  includes popular events like Southeastern Wildlife Festival, Charleston Wine + Food, and the Cooper River Bridge Run, tickets can sell out well in advance. Having a vacation rental company with a Concierge team that can help plan your itinerary and secure tickets in advance can go a long way toward vacation peace of mind. Look for firms that curate unique vacation packages that will have you enjoying the local flavor and experiencing the Holy City in ways you never dreamed possible!

Thinking of making a girl’s trip to Charleston for the weekend? We have just the package for that. Is a day on the beach more your style? Why not add our Beach Retreat package which includes a surf lesson at the infamous Washout on Folly Beach! Regardless of which package you choose, we’ll help make it a memorable time.

Gift Packages

There’s nothing sweeter than surprising someone with a gift! If you know that your vacation will include a birthday, celebration  or memorable anniversary, plan ahead with your vacation rental Concierge team to arrange a special package for the loved ones in your life. How about surprising someone special with a private dinner prepared in your vacation home with a chef for a truly remarkable culinary experience. Do you have a couple traveling to Charleston for their honeymoon? Surprise them with an in-home masseuse with accompanying champagne for a honeymoon surprise!
