My husband and I stayed five nights at Zero Water Street and it was truly the highlight of our stay. The house is directly on the Battery. There wasn't a better view of the harbor to be found.
Our hosts were gracious, informative, eager to help, yet gave us plenty of space; with our our own separate entrance, we truly had our own private apartment at the best location in the city.
I must comment on the outstanding housekeeping staff. Even though we're generally not messy people, housekeeping saw to it that the apartment was immaculate when we arrived back every afternoon. If I needed something (was desperate for some laundry soap) it was provided promptly. This in addition to the fact that we had homemade breakfast bread awaiting us every afternoon was a nice touch (and so yummy). Various other breakfast items were always on hand as well, such as milk, juices, bagels, cream cheese, jams, cereals and english muffins. Plenty to get us started for the day, and we eagerly sat outside every morning while leisurely eating our meal.
I agree with the other reviewers regarding the stairs. If you have issues with steps, you may find it difficult to maneuver the 2 flights of stairs you must climb to get to the third floor; otherwise, if you're considering a stay in Charleston and want 5 star treatment in a one-of-a-kind environment, you won't regret your stay here. It's simply perfect.
