Guestbook comments from the owner

This was a wonderful location. We really enjoyed being close to the historic sites in Charleston. The Isle of Palms was really fun. We spent a day at Magnolia Plantation. The house & gardens took several hours. Went to the slave cabins, but it was a very quick tour.

The house was truly a home away from home. Dorothy we appreciate you sharing this home with us.

Family Time

We had a wonderful week at your house. My kids are 21 and 17 and they loved the location. It was so convenient to walk across the street and drop our kayaks and we also rented Paddle Boards from Charleston Paddler which is right there too. What a beautiful creek and I think we saw the same two dolphins each time we went out. We also enjoyed great bike rides; one day we rode to Sullivans Island and we also rode over The Cooper River Bridge a couple of times. We also enjoyed being able to walk to restaurants. We had dinner at the Mexican place that is in the shopping center on the corner (very good) and we also walked to Page's Okra twice which is an outstanding place to eat. We went into Charleston a few times also which is very easy to get to from the house. We took advantage of the table in the den and did two puzzles while we were there. The house was comfortable and made you feel relaxed which for us was a nice way to end the Summer before the kids went back to school. We were also able to take our dogs and they really enjoyed the back yard (it is huge!) Thanks so much for sharing your home with us.

Comfortable home, perfect location, great for pets

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved staying in this home! The location is peaceful & convenient to everything. It was hot the week we were there, and the home stayed comfortably cool. The beds are nice, the kitchen is well equipped (even though we didn't cook much!) and the yard was absolutely perfect for our 2 coonhounds. They loved running around & exploring. The only note I would make about that is, if you have dogs who jump fences, the one side fence is kind of low, but it worked out fine for our pups.
Shem Creek Bar & Grill is literally a 3-minute walk, and having lunch on their patio overlooking the creek was one of our favorite activities. Two blocks up Live Oak is Page's Okra Grill, and we got take away a few times and ate out in the yard . Both places had terrific food.
For groceries, the Piggly Wiggly is a short drive down Coleman, and it is the friendliest store we have ever been in!
Visiting Charleston was easy, and made more special by taking the Water Taxi from Patriots Point, also a short drive down Coleman. You get to see the dolphins in the Harbor & the crew will give you some great hints about where to eat.
Also don't miss the Spirit Line cruise to Fort Sumter. Nice way to spend a few hours getting a beautiful cruise on the Harbor & learning a little history.
Sullivan's Island is also a short drive away, and the beaches are beautiful.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, and the home was a nice place to spend our down time. Having coffee on the swing in the mornings under the Live Oak, listening to all of the birds, feeling the breeze, was something that will stay with us forever.
So glad the owners have decided to share their lovely home!

Location

This location was excellent. Very easy to get into the city, easy access to water for kayaking, lots of restaurants and the Farmer's Market was fantastic. Fresh fish market close by and not far to beaches. Quiet dead end street, ending at a boat launch. The house is older, as described. Loved the hard wood floors and antiques. Melvin's was the best BBQ and the Boat House on Isle of Palms offers excellent food with outside dining while watching the dolphins. The house was clean and kitchen well equipped.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5
This house was perfect for our first "family" vacation with our 8 month old. We enjoyed having the multiple bedrooms. We spent most of our time in the sunroom where we could watch the boats lauch into Shem Creek. My husband and I were both able to kayak, and both of us had the pleasure of seeing dolphin by the Shem Creek restaurants. The location of this house was perfect for going downtown, going to the beach, or walking to the Shem Creek restaurants. Additionally, I am a runner, so I could run from the house over the Arthur Ravenel Bridge, and I could explore the Old Village of Mt. Pleaseant by foot, leaving from the house. The house itself reminded me of my grandmother's house with the same style of furniture. It was a very relaxing stay. Thank you.

I wish I could have stayed longer than a quick getaway, because this property is the perfect location
for relaxing after a day of shopping, outdoor activities, or a night of sampling the music scene/bars. Though within walking distance of great seafood, a fun antique shop, outdoor outfitter, artisan shops,
and the main thoroughfare, the house itself if quiet and restful. The yard is great for reading in the shade.
The photos are exactly like the house. It is clean, with laundry facilities, ample fridge, and a homey
feel. I would return. Had a delicious meal at Shem Creek Bar and Grill (about two blocks over, cut through the boat yard).

Central Location

  • 3 of 5
Pros: Nice, central location to downtown Charleston and beaches. Large fenced backyard for dogs. Affordable vacation home. Nice antiques, but wouldn't recommend for small children because of these breakables (we moved everything out of way).
Cons: Musty smell and sewage smell in "sunroom". Couches worn/dirty and local TV channels "jump", so we rented Redbox movies. Very tiny TV (smaller than 19"). We did not come to watch TV; however, we have a 1 year old and when she napped we wished we had a nice clean couch and an average size TV. The seafood restaurants on Shem Creek are nice and down the road--not walking distance like we had thought--but a very short drive. Marina is right next door but couldn't "see" the water from house.

Owner's Response: Dear RMP-- Thanks for your positive comments. We're sorry you didn't have a completely positive experience on your vacation. When I talked with my sister-in-law and the cleaning women, it turned out that they had noticed an extremely bad odor on the day you checked out. They tracked it down to some sheets in the dryer which they thought smelled strongly of urine. They washed these sheets and all the other laundry, and by the time they left, there was no odor problem. I'm not sure how this could have happened, but I wish you had called when you detected the smell so someone could have come by to track it down. I was there in mid-August and noticed no odor at all, and the other two sets of guests who arrived after you had no problem. The tv is still small (03/01/2011--We now have a 27" tv in there), but we have subscribed to basic cable and that has eliminated the "jumpy" problem. There is also a DVD/VCR player for watching movies, and we have a wi-fi internet connection. I will agree that the couch in the sunroom is not extremely comfortable, and it is somewhat worn. In mid-August I shampooed and turned the seat cushions and began looking for a replacement couch, though I haven't yet found one that works with the colors in that room. (05/11 - New loveseat in sunroom.) We're glad you enjoyed the seafood restaurants. They were probably not all an easy walk with your baby, but Shem Creek Bar and Grill has outdoor creekside dining and can't be more than a five minute walk on back streets. On my last visit to the area, I walked with my friends to Vickery's, one of the farthest of the creekside restaurants, and though it required crossing Coleman Blvd, the walk took only about 15 minutes. Though the house is not directly across from the water, it is only at completely low tide that the water is not visible from the sunroom, living room, and two front bedrooms, and even for that couple of hours a day I love seing the marshes and oak trees. As you noted, the house is affordable, and waterfront properties are usually quite expensive. Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We know that different visitors inevitably have different responses to accomodations, but we're disappointed to hear of any visitor who is not extremely pleased with the house. Thanks, Dorothy Stroman

Mt. Pleasant is a charming, historic village in itself, and is situated 10 minutes in either direction from historic Charleston and from the beaches of Sullivan's Island and the Isle of Palms. Our house is only about three blocks from many waterfront seafood restaurants looking out on the shrimping fleet of Shem Creek.

Other Activities: Weekly farmer's market 1 block away. Walking and biking in Old Village of Mt. Pleasant closeby.
