Everything about Zero Water Street is perfect. The home, the piazza, the views, and the delightful hosts make this bed and breakfast delightful. Thank you for one of our best stays in Charleston ever.

Pros:
-The location is perfect bar none. Right on the battery with panoramic water views.
-This place is huge! Most Charlestonian B&Bs are separate carriage houses or leftover views around the back of the home. In this one, the owners offer the cream of the crop- 3rd story of a traditional Battery house.
-The value is fantastic for what you get.

Cons:
-Typical of some B&Bs there is a lot of kitsch. Not a deal breaker but a distraction.
-You do have to pass through a small area that is part of the owners' living space is get upstairs. Not a big deal but it does feel like someone's home.

Conclusion: This is the kind of place that people hesitate even making reviews on because they want to save it for themselves!

I selected Zero Water Street from my search on the web. We found it to be just as described and as the photos represented. Our host, Jim and Cordes Simpson were wonderful and very helpful with any questions we had about the area. Jim's recommendation of 82 Queen for our arrival lunch was a great delight when we stopped in for lunch. You have the entire 3 floor of the home on Charlestons Battery with a great view of the harbor & Fort Sumter. It is situated within some walking distance of Charleston's down town shopping and dining areas. You are in the heart of Charleston's historical district with numerous venues to visit. We found ourselves on the Piazza having our afternoon wine and enjoying the view. The breakfasts are very unique. They fill the refrigerator with fruit cups, yogurt, fresh fruit, cereal, bagels, bottled water and juice, muffins, cream cheese and fresh baked varities of coffee cake. If you're looking for a relaxing location for a stay in Charleston, be sure to check out Zero Water Street. You won't be disapointed. If you stay here be sure to get a tour of the 1st and 2nd floors. You will be impressed.

Room Tip: They only rent the 3rd floor.

As we were sitting on the third floor piazza looking out over Charleston Harbor, sipping our wine, I jokingly said to my wife "we made a big mistake coming here on our first visit because no place is going to be able to live up to this, we're spoiled!" Believe me, this place sets the bar pretty high. The location couldn't be better, we only had to drive once during our stay, everything else was within walking distance or a short petty cab ride. We came here for the history and this place is part of it. As a civil war buff, it was thrilling for me to stand looking out at fort Sumter in the distance knowing that this house and its occupants were witness to the bombardment and the start of the war. That being said, this is a very old house and has it's quirks, long narrow flights of stairs, noisy floorboards and you better heed the warning "bend or bump" but all that just adds to the charm. We would love to stay here again if we are lucky enough to find an opening.

This place has so much to offer. It was wonderful to arrive "home" every evening, enjoy the wonderful breeze and the views are spectacular. Enjoying breakfast, the great morning breeze and lovely sunrise is the best way to begin each day.

Room Tip: Prepare for the stairs...having the full 3rd floor is worth every step.
