How to pick the perfect vacation rental in Charleston

Condé Nast Traveler has voted Charleston, South Carolina the “No. 1 Small U.S. City” eight years in a row, but don’t let the title fool you: Charleston offers a wealth of big experiences for travelers of every variety. Downtown Charleston boasts numerous art galleries (Hagan Fine Art Gallery & Studio, Art Mecca of Charleston), museums (the Charleston Museum, the Gibbes Museum of Art) and restaurants (Charleston Grill, the Darling Oyster Bar), while its beaches offer a great escape from the sweltering summer heat. History buffs can tour the famed Civil War battleground Fort Sumter, and nature enthusiasts can get lost for hours in Charleston’s vast plantations.

Follow these tips to help you pick the perfect Charleston vacation rental for your travel plans.

  • Where to stay to take a plantation tour:Charleston is home to several gorgeous plantations, which offer a glimpse into the city’s rich past and allow for breathtaking strolls through lush gardens. Book a stay in North Charleston along the Ashley River to visit Magnolia Plantation & Gardens, the oldest public garden in the United States. Or stay in Mount Pleasant to visit Boone Hall, which boasts the “Avenue of Oaks,” stretching over a kilometer leading up to the grounds’ main house.
  • Where to stay to visit Fort Sumter:Fort Sumter has a rich history as home to two battles during the Civil War. It’s now open to the public as part of the Fort Sumter National Monument. Fort Sumter itself is located in the Charleston Harbor (also a great spot to enjoy a luxury dinner cruise), so visitors can’t go wrong booking a coastal villa in the Harbor. But vacationers can also book a vacation rental in downtown Charleston and catch a daily ferry out to the historical site.
  • Where to stay for shopping and art:History buffs, shopaholics, and art enthusiasts alike will find plenty to love in the King Street Historic District. The gorgeous, walking-friendly neighborhood boasts several art galleries, boutiques, and hip restaurants and bars. If you book a vacation rental near King Street, it’s mandatory to make a trip to the City Market, home to more than 100 vendors selling clothing, jewelry, crafts, food, and more.
  • Where to stay near the beach:Looking to beat the heat this summer? Book a vacation rental for the week by the family-friendly Folly Beach, located just 15 minutes from downtown Charleston. Pack a picnic lunch and spend the whole day soaking up the sun and catching some waves. Then grab dinner or drinks at one of the neighborhood’s many trendy restaurants and bars, such as Snapper Jacks or Folly Beach Crab Shack.
  • How to choose your Charleston rental experience:Charleston offers an ideal vacation experience for every type of traveler. Couples who prefer to explore on foot and crave romantic outings filled with great food should try a cozy condo or apartment near the King Street Historic District or French Quarter. Families looking to retreat to the beach for a week or more can check out a beachfront condo or villa by Folly Beach. Folks who want to visit Charleston’s plantations can take their pick of charming condos in North Charleston or Mount Pleasant. Charleston has plenty of attractions to entertain visitors, but with these rental tips, you can stay like a local.

Charleston Vacation Rentals Frequently Asked Questions

Companies like Airbnb and Vrbo operate listing websites that enable guests to research and book a vacation rental anywhere in the world. However, once a guest books the property, they need to work directly with either the homeowner, host or property manager any time they have questions or need assistance with booking or during their stay. This can be a challenge for some homeowners, particularly those who live far away from their vacation rental. TurnKey offers a consistent and reliable high-end experience, resulting in strong reviews, repeat bookings and more. TurnKey also has a local Charleston team, 24/7 support and in-home technology to ensure an amazing vacation experience in every home, every stay, every time.

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, TurnKey has enhanced its already extensive home cleaning standards and processes to further sanitize homes between each stay for our guests and owners. All TurnKey properties are equipped with our patented GuestWorks® cleaning system and verification technology, requiring professional housekeepers to follow a stringent set of cleaning standards, customized for each home, and confirm their use of COVID-19 fighting products, as identified by the Center for Biocide Chemistries. We have also emphasized effective hygiene practices and safety recommendations for our employees and housekeeping network in line with CDC guidelines. In addition, we have initiated the TurnKey Cares Relief Housing Program, offering thousands of homes for medical personnel and first-responders at complimentary or significantly discounted rates while they perform critical services to fight COVID-19.

Yes. Many TurnKey homes allow for special rates for monthly or long-term stays. In addition, while booking calendars may appear blocked due to local orders, many of our properties have exclusive availability for medical personnel and first-responders who need a place to stay while performing critical services to fight COVID-19. To inquire about the special monthly rates or exclusive availability, please call us at 888-512-0498.

Yes! TurnKey has established the best network of professional house cleaners in Charleston to ensure that our guests always arrive at an exceptionally clean home. Expect to find beds made with hotel-grade linens and bathrooms stocked with fresh towels and a complimentary starter set of toiletries.

Unlike many vacation rentals in the area, our local team and network of Charleston house cleaners guarantee that you’ll never need to clean up at the end of your stay. Sometimes, especially during busy seasons, starting a load of towels or linens can help our house cleaners finish their clean more quickly. We certainly appreciate it when guests do this, but we do not require it.

TurnKey offers 24/7 guest support that you can contact at any time to make your stay more enjoyable. Paired with our local Charleston team, we can respond quickly to any in-home help you might need.

All of TurnKey’s Charleston vacation rentals are equipped with complimentary, reliable, high-speed WiFi so you can always stay connected.

Every TurnKey Charleston vacation rental includes a fully-equipped kitchen where you can cook and prepare meals with your friends and family.

We’ve installed our proprietary digital locks on all Charleston vacation rentals to offer our guests secure, keyless entry. Each code is time-sensitive, so you don’t have to worry about anyone else having access to the home while you’re there. Prior to check-in, you’ll receive arrival instructions with your custom code for easy, seamless access.

TurnKey carefully vets all of our homes, so you can be sure you’ll always stay in a premium vacation rental. We offer some of the most distinctive, unique vacation homes in all of Charleston, backed by our exceptional home care and 24/7 guest service.
