The Neighborhood:

Come relax in our appealing home away from home atmosphere, in charming downtown Charleston, SC. Located in historic Harleston Village, Merhaven Bed no Breakfast has been described by our guests as "casually elegant", "highly affordable", "adorned with amazingly, beautiful gardens", and "a lovely place to stay". Built in 1928, this arts and crafts bungalow offers two spacious guest rooms with 10' ceilings, lots of windows, hardwood floors, and beautiful, comfortable decor. The newly renovated (2014), shared bathroom offers a beautifully tiled walk-in shower. Our large, open courtyard and lush gardens offer the perfect place to unwind and appreciate the soft coastal air, after a delightful day of touring, shopping, or playing on the beach. Enjoy comfy chairs, situated around beautifully manicured spaces, while the sound of the water from our fountains offers a relaxing backdrop to the hum of the city. A short walk will find you in the heart of the downtown shopping district. Several breakfast cafes and gourmet restaurants are within a 10 minute walk. Located within close proximity to the White Point Gardens, the Battery, and several city parks, we are also near the Medical University of South Carolina, and just down the street from the College of Charleston. We are a mere fifteen minute drive to one of three area beaches: Folly Beach, Isle of Palms, and Sullivan's Island. Merhaven is not available for occupancy from June 13, 2014- August 21, 2014.

Getting Around:

Even though you can pretty much walk everywhere, if you decide you want to drive and don't have a car we recommend using Uber or Charleston Green Taxi. We have also left other taxi services in your room to browse just in case.

Other Things to Note:

The owners are Ayal & Hawk and they are the sweetest people you may ever come across meeting but they are usually out of town, but if you do have the pleasure of coming across them from the main house I suggest you say hello. They are both professional artisans in the arts.

About Stay Duvet

Ayal Hurst is an artist, author, and holistic healer. She loves to stroll around the city taking in hidden side streets and sculpted architecture. She enjoys providing a nurturing place of beauty for visitors.

Her husband, Hawk, is a professional storyteller, naturalist, and cultural arts educator who enjoys sharing his joy of Native American flute & drum-making and playing. He travels across the country performing and teaching children and adults how to create ancient musical instruments.

Why Stay Duvet chose Charleston

After owning and directing an outdoor education and retreat center in the North Carolina mountains, it was time to celebrate all that a beautiful city near the ocean could offer.

My husband and I both enjoy nurturing people, and having a vacation rental in downtown Charleston allows us to share what we love with others. Living here has offered us the opportunity to experience a place where the richness of history and culture matter, where what is beautiful and treasured is preserved, and blends into daily life - a place filled with art and music, plays, great restaurants, beautiful, stately homes, and blue harbors with shining boats anchored only a few blocks away.

Charleston is a magical place surrounded by water. People here live with a deep understanding of the tides, with the power and greatness and vastness of the sea. Like the land, they are open hearted and easy going, yet there is a profound sense of community and creativity and aliveness here. A sense that we all value the things that are important.

Downtown Charleston is a wonderful place. My husband and I love to be able to walk to dinner, or take a stroll along the Battery at sunset before heading off to enjoy the theater. We are constantly amazed by the outstanding architecture and beautiful gardens. We never seem to tire of walking down the same streets and looking at the amazing houses with fanciful gates, wide porches, and intricate iron work, or walking along the beach and looking for dolphins at play in the sea. It's a colorful and lovely lifestyle here - one that we value and are grateful to be a part of. When people come here, they too get a taste of it - of old world charm at its best, mixed with the fun of a city alive with life.

What makes this apartment unique

Merhaven Bed no Breakfast, located in the historic Harleston Village section of downtown Charleston, has been described by our guests as "a delightful, lovely, peaceful place to stay", and "possessing the most beautiful gardens in all of Charleston".

Guestbook comments from the owner

My daughter and I visited Charleston for a long weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Merhaven. The accommodations were perfect for our needs, and our bathroom mates were very friendly (of course they were...they were 3 gals from NJ!!). The location was very convenient, just a few blocks from the beautiful university campus. We took in a couple of Spoleto events, and shopping and dining were great experiences. We intend to return for another visit; next time I would like to spend more time in the lovely garden at Merhaven!

Perfect Place in Charleston

Stayed several nights with two friends, thus occupying both rooms at Merhaven, making the shared bathroom arrangement very easy. Great location, charming accommodations, most pleasant stay!

Perfect Place For A Girls Weekend Away

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect spot and such a beautiful home. I planned a very low key weekend to my sister's bachelorette party and this was absolutely perfect. The location was a short 10 minute walk from King St and made it perfect for my morning runs as a friend and myself ran to the Battery and back 2 days in a row. Although this was a a bed and "no" breakfast, it gave us the opportunity to explore charleston's awesome restaurants and dining. I plan on coming back and bringing my husband for a weekend getaway next time. The 2 rooms were perfect for the 4 of us and we each had our own bed :-) the bathroom was perfect and the shower amazing! Everything was clean and very well maintained. The garden is gorgeous and a perfect place to sit and chat whether it's a morning cup of coffee or nightcap! Taylor helped us tremendously with hotspots for food, drinks and so much more! Thanks for making my sister's weekend truly unforgettable!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 2 daughters, mother-in-law, and I stayed here for 5 nights in July 2012. Ayal's directions were very specific and we let ourselves in easily. There was free parking for our rental car. We reserved both rooms, so it was our own little suite. My wife, younger daughter, and I stayed in the Cypress room. My wife and I slept on the queen bed, which was very comfortable. We were afraid that our younger daughter was going to roll off her daybed, so we were happy that there is a pull out trundle bed under the daybed for the little one to use. The first 3 nights my older daughter slept on the twin bed and my mother-in-law slept on the queen bed in the Jasmine room. For a change of scenery on nights 4 and 5, my older daughter moved into the Cypress room with us and slept on the day bed. There was enough room for the four of us in the Cypress room. All the beds are comfy and both bedrooms and the bathroom are spotlessly clean. I enjoy drinking a cup of coffee in the mornings and that was provided (tea was also available). There is a Rite Aid one block away so we were able to pick cereal, milk, drinks, and detergent there. There is a coin operated laundry a few blocks away, so we were able to pack less clothes for our trip. There is a playground right across the street that our daughters greatly enjoyed. There is a small refrigerator with water in it you can purchase; we also put our milk and other cold drinks in there. The courtyard is spacious and gorgeous!

Since this is a "Bed No Breakfast" meals are the guests' responsibility (hence the dining rating of 3 stars above). This was fine with us. Every morning we ate our cereal in the courtyard, in front of a beautiful fountain and nice wrought iron rocking chair. The hosts are very creative people. We enjoyed reading their books and admired their art. Finally, the price was very attractive compared to local alternatives! I highly recommend the Merhaven Bed No Breakfast.
