Perfect location and a short walk to everything basically. You have the whole top floor and there is so much space it feels really luxurious. The view over the water is spectacular, and I found myself staring for long periods obsessively looking for dolphins (which I did actually see a few times). The breakfast is continental but great with lots... More

What can I add to all the other positive reviews? Maybe that it would have been enough for our 25th wedding anniversary celebration to have spent all of our time at Zero Water Street! It's a lot about location, location, location (and Southern hospitality). The view from the bay end of the sitting area and the porch, both looking directly... More

My husband and I had high expectations for our 10 anniversary and Zero Water Street exceeded those expectations hands down. Between the view (what a view!), the privacy and the warm southern hospitality of Cordes and Jim it was the perfect "home base" while we explored Charleston for the first time. The location was spectacular and made us feel so... More

We are big fans of Charleston, the sights, the sounds, the buzz, the history, and the restaurants. ZWS is our favorite B&B for that "special" occasion. Only one guest at a time, you enjoy the entire 3rd floor of this historic home. The porch runs the entire length of the home, front to back so you have areas for dining,... More

Perfect in every way. Not only is this a beautiful historical residence and idyllically situated (right on East Bay overlooking Fort Sumter) but it is beautifully decorated as well. You will have an entire floor to yourself including a kitchen. The porch though is unrivalled. A must for enjoying breakfast, a glass of wine or simply for watching tourists. Our... More

My wife and I had a wonderful time in Charleston and our accomodations could not have been better. All of the reviews sum it up, you will not find a better place to stay in Charelston than Zero Water Street Bed and Breakfast. Jim and Cordes are wonderful people and this is a truly special place.

Staying at Zero Water Street, you can have the pleasure of having your very own apartment in the prettiest house and the prettiest location in all of Charleston. The interior of the apartment is spacious and lovely and luxurious. The very tall ceilings and tasteful decoration create a sense of grandeur. Every amenity has been provided for you. Jim and...

This was a perfect stay for us. We loved the space & REALLY loved the porch and the view. The location is great. It's an easy walk to most of the things we wanted to do in town, but just far enough away from the main shopping & dining area to be very quiet. The neighborhood is lovely to walk... More

The good...and it is VERY good: the location and the rooms. You probably can't beat the view in Charleston from the deck, looking directly across the harbor to Ft Sumter. The rooms and furnishings are also grand, though we wished the sitting and bedrooms had been switched so we could have enjoyed the sunrise over the water from bed. However,... More

My wife and I have been visiting Charleston for 11 years as a couple and for over 25 years individually. Our travel plans usually bring us to town 2-3 times per year and include booking one of the very nice hotels in the area or renting a home over on IOP. This trip we decided to try something different and... More
