“best place to stay in Charleston, but not for everyone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2011

We loved this place - it's big, beautifully maintained, historic, full of antiques, perfectly located and makes your visit easy with "do it yourself" breakfast supplies and both kitchen & laundry facilities. The "piazza" overlooking the Charleston Bay, and the location right on the Battery at the heart of the old residential district, were real highlights. The owners are also friendly and kindly gave us a tour of their part of the house, downstairs. I would definitely stay here again. It might not be for everyone, though - it is on the 3rd floor with lots of narrow stairs, and the fairly open piazza with old fashioned railings would scare me if I had young children with me. It's also fairly expensive, but we felt it was worthwhile for the space & great experience.

This was the second time my husband and I have stayed at Zero Water Street in the past 2 years and we will definatley be back. I will never stay anywhere else in Charleston!

Besides the perfect location on the water and the amazing porch, I truly love that the owner's of the home just let you be. It's almost as if it's your own place. Trust me, I enjoy bed and breakfasts, but I also enjoy having privacy and not having to share each morning with fellow guests at a specified time. You receive fresh fruit daily, along with great baked goods. There is plenty to fill you up.

The accomodations are incredible - you will be speechless upon entering.

We visited Charleston as part of our 5th wedding anniversary trip to South Carolina. We wanted to stay in the heart of Charleston, and Zero Water Street was the ideal setup. Jim and Cordes were excellent both in pre-trip arrangements and in making sure that we were settled and cozy. You have the entire third floor of this beautiful home to yourself, and it includes a large bedroom, sitting room, bathroom, kitchen (where you have access to breakfast foods at all times), and covered porch (with views of Charleston Harbor that cannot be beat). We are big history people, so we loved learning about the background of the house from Cordes.

Clearly the most inviting, relaxing, convenient place to stay in Charleston. Better than the photos - it is like you are back in time with period antiques, a lovely breakfast and wonderful owners.

Zero Water B & B is a great place to stay to enjoy the views of the Charleston Harbor & Fort Sumter. It is within walking distance to all things Charleston-restaruants, architecture, the market, Battery Park. You can sit on the verandah and enjoy views while hearing the clip clop of horse drawn carriages strolling by. The home is steeped in history and the owners are happy to share it with their guests.
