I realize that I am in the minority here but we were really disappointed in this B&B. It's true the view was stunning, as was the piazza, but "Bed and Breakfast" is a misnomer. The breakfast consisted of small boxes of Froot Loops and Frosted Flakes, some sort of Costco-looking coffee cake (i.e. not homemade), Red Delicious apples and brown... More

It goes to show that you can't please all the people all the time, but based on all of our other reviews, it shows that we go to great lengths to try!! We appreciate the comments of the reviewer and are sorry that our breakfast items did not meet her expectations. Our web site clearly states that we provide a... More

We stayed an extra night (3 nights) at Zero Water Street just so we didn't feel shorted. It really is like living on the waterfront with a million dollar view of Charleston Harbor. You get the entire third floor of a 1830's home on the Battery. Quiet, clean, and a healthy dose of Southern charm. The porch is awesome. We... More

We had a wonderful 20 year anniversary trip at Zero Water Street. The location is the best in the city- We parked our car in the free off street parking area and never used it again until we left four days later. Since we are usually big breakfast eaters we were initially concerned about the breakfast but it was delicious... More

My wife and I recently spent five days at Zero Water Street and we had an exceptional experience. The accommodations located in an historic ante bellum mansion were breathtaking. A beautifully decorated apartment consisting of a hallway, living room, bedroom, bathroom and kitchen comprises the entire top floor of the home. As magnificent as the furnishings are, however, is the... More

We spent three nights here for our 13th anniversary. The views are beyond description. Elegant home and wonderful hosts. Jim and Cordes are what you expect when you visit this part of the country, charming and gracious. Loved it. Jim and Linda Munro Korner Kottage Bed & Breakfast Suttons Bay, MI

After staying at this B&B for 15 years, it has become a yearly ritual. Great place and location - with the great piazza overlooking the water sometimes it hard to leave in order to sight see. Cordes and Jim are wonderful hosts and make you feel as if you're home.

My husband and I traveled to Charleston for our 10 year anniversary. We booked Zero Water Street after reading all of the wonderful reviews. It was dark when we arrived, but as soon as the sun rose the next morning we knew we were in paradise! The porch was our favorite part of our vacation - we spent the afternoons... More

We have been staying here at least once a year for the past 10 years and it is always wonderful. Beautiful views of the water and gardens - we could live here! Within walking distance of everything and everyone is very helpful.

We have stayed in hotels and b&b's all over the country and abroad. Zero Water Street is the best. The space, the comfort, the hospitality, the eat when you want breakfast and oh yeah the fabulous porch and view. We just wanted to get away for a few days so I searched in many cities and many types of accomodation.... More
