Founded in 2016 by Kasey King, Charleston Corporate Housing offers fully furnished, short term apartments & homes to companies and individuals in the Charleston area who are in need of temporary housing. "I came up with the idea of Charleston Corporate Housing when I was working as the Director of Sales at a hotel in Mt. Pleasant.” said Kasey. “I would receive phone calls practically every day from someone looking for a better short term housing alternative than living in a hotel for 6 weeks or even 6 months at a time".
We serve a wide variety of professionals for corporate housing and extended stays including interns, business travelers, and executives in industries such as automotive, manufacturing, military and more. All of our furnished corporate apartments (and homes) come with everything that you’ll need to feel “at home” while you’re staying with us. Utilities, wifi and other necessities are built in and included in monthly rates. Any companies or individuals with short term rental needs are encouraged to get in contact with Charleston Corporate Housing.
A unique fact about our owner... Kasey King went on a spiritual journey in May, 2018 hearing a higher power call him to “Give”. The very next day, he went to his daughter’s elementary school and paid off their $8,000.00 unpaid student lunch debt at Joseph Pye Elementary.
