With close proximity to upper King Street and the Crosstown (Septima P. Clark Parkway), the location of this home enables guests to walk to restaurants, shops & other cultural delights and provides quick road access to Mt. Pleasant, West Ashley, all local beaches, Charleston County parks, historic plantation homes along the Ashley River and other local attractions. There are a lot of new local restaurants -- as well as all the offerings of Upper King Street -- within a couple of minutes stroll from the Sweet Spacious Suite. With D'Allesandros Pizza (a local pizza institution), Brown's Court Bakery (amazing breads & pastries) and the Ordinary (high end oyster & seafood restaurant) a couple of blocks, guests have many unique local food options to explore. Walk to Barsa for some Tapas or visit the Daily for some coffee or locally made Kombucha!

This is the best neighborhood in Charleston if you are looking to be steps away from King Street and experience the area as a local in a transitional neighborhood among new residents of the city, students and longtime local families. The diversity and richness of history in the Cannonborough-Elliotborough neighborhood makes this part of town desirable to locals and visitors alike. Sweet Spacious Suite is perfect for folks who enjoy a diverse, vibrant and eclectic neighborhood where you can watch the reinvestment & revitalization in old historic properties going on in real time. Parts of the neighborhood might still look a bit rough but it is safe. This neighborhood was recently profiled by the WALL ST JOURNAL in April 2017 as "THE PLACE TO STAY IN CHARLESTON" and it's also where Jamie Lee Curtis stayed - and walked her dog every morning - while shooting the 2018 remake of the Halloween movie!



- No smoking.

- Dogs may be permitted subject to additional rules & restrictions. (Please notify us in advance of your arrival if you would like your dog to accompany you during your stay.)

- Although this home is very close to the sights & sounds of downtown Charleston, this property is located in a quiet residential neighborhood. We expect guests to behave in a neighborly way. Parties are not permitted at anytime. Please no excessive noise and no unregistered guests during quiet hours (10:00 pm to 8:00 am Sunday through Thursday nights and midnight to 10:00 am on Friday and Saturday nights).

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The unit we stayed in was very spacious (which helped as we had our highly energetic 4-year old with us), it had everything we needed to cook and clean (including the convenient full washer/dryer) and the beds were comfortable. I would also be remiss if I didn't mention the great location... the house is towards the end of a cul-de-sac and may initially appear like a neighborhood that is undergoing some renovation, but if you walk 2 blocks over to King Street, you are literally right in the middle of everything that is happening in downtown Charleston. It is an easy and safe walk to plenty of bars, restaurants and shops. If you want space, location and great hospitality, this is the place for you.

My sister-in-law, my mom, and her friend had a wonderful time in Charleston and found the Sweet Spacious Suite very sweet indeed! It was also very comfortable, clean, and convenient to the historic downtown area. Because we chose to stay in this older but updated home we were able to really experience the town and its rich culture. There are many excellent restaurants and brew houses within walking distance (Leon's Oysters and Chicken and Edmund's Oast to name a couple). If you don't want to walk all the way downtown the Dash (free bus) has stops very nearby. I highly recommend the Sweet Spacious Suite!

Thanks Amanda for your wonderful recommendation! Sounds like you went exploring the local neighborhood as well as some of the more touristy areas. Those are some of our favorite restaurants and brewhouses and so easy to get too!! Obviously you found the neighborhood safe enough to walk around too! Steven

We have rented from HomeAway previously and were thrilled by our choices, however that was not the case this time. As we drove up we were thinking that clearly, we were in the wrong location as we found the house literally next to the highway (traffic ALL night next to your heads on the bed) and a burned-out house across the street and an old auto detailing shop with only the cement walls standing and weeds/junkyard surrounding. We did not feel safe in this neighborhood and clearly did not pay close enough attention the write up on the property detail or we would clearly have not chosen it. It is listed as transitional neighborhood – this is a long way from transition. No back yard - broken fence, no exterior pictures posted which is VERY misleading. Back porch is disgusting and you would never sit out there. And while the location is a block off Upper King Street – it is a LONG walk down the decent shops and even further to south of Broad to see the great neighborhoods. Good thing we like to walk. Went inside and sat on the red couch - only to have a 2" dead cockroach fall off - we almost turned around and left throwing away the rent we already had fully paid (called the owner to voice concerns and were told it’s Charleston and cockroaches happen and the neighborhood is very safe…… nothing they were planning to do to help alleviate our concerns) - furnishings looked like the picture but very worn and mismatched, one bed all foam, the other very old – neither comfortable. Pillows felt old and used. The bedding was gross army green knit sheets and the towels were gray thread barren & stained. We texted the owners the next day and they changed the sheets to a beige cotton percale and brought new white bath towels which was great but the others should NEVER have been there to start with. Talk about bad first impressions. Our college apartments were better furnished than this and at well over $260+/night you expect to have a decently furnished place. Looks like they took $100 and went to a garage sale to furnish it. Unfortunate given it has so much potential if you can get past the location and depressing exterior. The pine floors are very nice. Materials said two sets of towels per guest per stay but there was only one – which worked for us but not what was noted. In addition, at least 2 rolls of toilet tissue per bathroom would be appropriate for 4 people for 4 nights. Kitchen is not equipped well enough if you plan to cook - limited cookware, mismatched dishes and glassware, no microwave or toaster but a wine fridge - go figure? Welcoming amenity was nice but then again you were charged for it in the rates. No doggie treats welcoming our furry pup. This property might be okay if you are in college and don’t care about furnishings, location or bedding but then again probably can’t afford it if you are in college. Unfortunately, this soured our entire 4 days in Charleston and we aren’t planning a return trip. We also visited Savannah and the house we stayed in was lovely.

We’re very sorry to hear that you were disappointed by your stay in Charleston. However, we feel that your review is unfair given that we did disclose the transitional nature of the neighborhood in the description, photos and captions in our listing - as you acknowledge in your review. We were very shocked when you called us upon your check-In to demand a refund “because we’re staying in the ghetto and don’t feel safe.” It is not a ghetto. The owners of the home live in the front half of the building, our daughter goes to school nearby and the area is quite safe. We make no claim of being anywhere near the area South of Broad and our location is pinpointed on the listing’s map. There is no “burned-out house” or junkyard nearby. The house across the street is clearly under development and is working its way through the City’s planning & permitting process for renovations, which takes awhile in Charleston due to historic preservation requirements. The auto detailing shop on the corner has a large “for sale” sign in front of it. We’ve had the house tested for sound levels and both bedrooms fall within the normal range, largely due to the fact that there’s another home between us and the highway. We’re sorry to hear that you encountered one of Charleston’s Palmetto bugs. Our homes are treated on a quarterly basis for pests, but, unfortunately, Palmetto bugs do occasionally enter the homes in Charleston - especially after it has rained. We believe our many positive reviews of the property speak for themselves.
