***IMPORTANT NOTE ON POTENTIAL FOR NOISE: Everything that makes this location amazing also means it's not suburban quiet! Our location is wonderful for walkability and is surrounded by incredible dining and entertainment - which includes music venues, including those located nearby on King Street, a block away. While the City of Charleston has a noise ordinance that starts at 11 pm through 7 am - any loud music should end at 11 pm, even on the weekends - HCVR cannot control our proximity to the liveliness that makes this an excellent location, nor can we be held responsible for adjacent noise out of our control. *If there is loud music or excessive noise after 11 pm from anywhere other than the property, we ask guests to please contact the non-emergency police number and file a complaint. This is not a good location for those that are bothered by urban noises and/or who need complete quiet in order to sleep. There may be street noises and other sounds typical of an urban location. This unit is on the top two floors of a large house, with potential other guests in the units below you - and you may hear your neighbors on-site. As this building was built in1905 and renovated to retain the old-world Charleston charm, the original wood floors do not have modern soundproofing. You may also hear other urban sounds like garbage trucks and other noises coming from the street areas. HCVR will not discount nor refund for noise complaints. By the act of renting this unit, the guest accepts the potential for noise as detailed above.

PARKING: This unit offers ONE off-street parking spot. Additional parking is located a block away in the City of Charleston parking garage at a charge of $18 per day. Note: No tandem parking. No blocking of stairwells or other vehicles. No motorcycles, scooters, golf carts, or any other type of motorized vehicle. Guests are not to use small side pad next to house. Guests are not to plug any vehicle into the power outlets in the home, including but not limited to EV (Electric Vehicles). If there is a parking concern, please contact the Host immediately. HOA will tow without warning if parking rules are not followed.

Need even MORE room for your group? Jessamine House takes up the top two floors of the main house. The front door is on the street level and takes you up a flight of stairs to the second and third floors. There are units on the bottom floor of the house that can be rented separately or may be occupied with other guests. Please contact us if you are interested in renting the entire house which in total would sleep up to 18 plus 4 children. Please send an inquiry for more availability, including other units on the same property: 1 to 3 bedrooms. We also have additional units available two blocks away on Spring Street that can accommodate larger groups, ideal for wedding accommodations and family reunions.
