Location, location location... You will be minutes from plenty to do in and around Mount Pleasant, a suburb of Charleston. This neighborhood is perfect for a nice walk or bike ride. Going any direction will either lead you toward sandy beaches, marshy creeks, plenty of restaurants or the Arthur Ravenel Bridge which has an excellent view of the area and wonderful to cross outside of the car!
Also located in the neighborhood AKA the 'Old Village' you will find 'The Old Bridge' which used to link Sullivan's Island to Mount Pleasant during the Civil War era. This has now been converted to a nice park and surrounded by the intercoastal waterway. Great location for fishing, crabbing, shrimping, or watching the sun set over Charleston from the benches.
Restaurants on Shem Creek give you a taste of Charleston’s finest seafood while watching the shrimp boats come in to dock or kayaks paddle on by. A local playground is about 3/4 of a mile away which sports clay tennis courts for public use. The old village 'Pitt Street' area gives you a unique feeling of what Mount Pleasant was like when we first spread out from Charleston onto the islands...
The house is minutes from Sullivan's Island; Home of Fort Moultrie where the first shots of the civil war rang! The Fort and its Museum is free of cost. You are also located about 2 miles from Patriots Point which is a Naval Wartime Museum (Golf Course across street).
In 5 minutes you can also go to the Charleston visitors center downtown. You will see advertisements for all the splendor Charleston and it’s surrounding areas have to offer in one location. There is just too much to list here…
If you want to be local to all things historic to contemporary, the old village is the place to stay…

I was born and raised in Charleston on the Isle of Palms. My family moved to Mt. Pleasant right before Hugo hit in 1989 because the beach traffic was too much. We settled in Old Mt. Pleasant a block from my Grandparents. I currently live in Rock Hill, SC outside of Charlotte. However, I am looking to return to Charleston in the near future and currently use this home when it's not rented to build my business back in the low country.
Owner purchased this House in 1977
Why Owner chose Old Village
The classy lady in this photo was my grandmother and one of the original owners of this home. I have upgraded the property to include hardwoods throughout, updated bath and kitchen along with new windows throughout. This is my homestead and I lived here many years growing up. Therefore, even though the home is now updated and most personal items have been removed to open up for you to enjoy, it will always be home to me.. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do!

Comfortable and cozy
We really enjoyed our stay in this home. Quiet street, easy to find, and comfortable. A great value for the money. Can easily sleep 9 if you include the living room couch. The owner was very responsive and easy to work with. We were thankful for the covered parking which kept the car dry so we didn't have to load up in the rain. There were plenty of pillows, clean linens for each bed, and the beds were very comfortable. Even had a few beach chairs which were nice, since we forgot ours. She also had some books, games and puzzles for leisure time and plenty of room to spread out and relax. Even our teenagers said they would come back again.
House met our needs and was in a good location. The only concern was the amount of dust everywhere, especially on the baseboards and windows. I am not very picky, buy my allergy prone family was. We spent what free time we had on the great porch.
Charming cottage in a great location
This Cottage was perfect for our trip to Charleston. We had everything we needed from the covered parking to the homey furnishings. We especially loved the covered sitting areas such as the front porch and the back area, where we enjoyed our lunch. This Cottage is located in a safe walking neighborhood. It is also a short drive to historic Charleston and the beautiful Sullivan's Island. This Cottage is well-maintained, very clean, and managed by an extremely accommodating hostess. We four ladies, ages 23-78 felt cozy and comfortable, as if we were at Grandma's home.
Thank you Lisa.
This place is way nicer than the picture shows!
Comfortable Mt. Pleasant Home
My family enjoyed this spacious home to relax in during our visit to Charleston. There was plenty of room for a Grandma, a 2 year old, and her parents. We had everything we needed to relax in comfort between activities. It was in a quiet neighborhood and just a short drive to many fun spots.
Great place to stay - wonderful family vacation
Our first VRBO rental experience and it was wonderful! As others have said, if you are looking for newly furnished and remodeled, this is not for you, you will need to keep looking and be willing to pay lots more. If, however, you are looking for comfortable beds, a fully functioning kitchen with everything you could ever need, QUIET street, cozy porches to talk to one another, furnished towels/linens and close access to beaches, grocery, pharmacy, downtown Charleston and lots of great restaurants, this place is for you! Owner is very easy to work with and everything is exactly as described. We couldn't have asked for more!
Fishing, Crabbing and Shrimping locations REALLY near, Canoe drop-off on Shem Creek (2 min. away), Cards and Board Games on site.
