About the property

Studio With Free Use Of Bikes And Kayaks & Paddleboards. Bring your Boat

This beautiful and immaculately renovated ground floor studio on Shem Creek, in the heart of Mt Pleasant, SC is the perfect place to experience the charm of the low country. A large and private lot, separate pathway and acoustical sheetrock throughout have all added to the privacy of this studio, which is situated on the ground floor of our home. Centrally located between Downtown Historic Charleston and the beaches of Sullivans Island and Isle of Palms, this picturesque property provides views of a five-acre fresh water lake, marshland and gorgeous sunsets. Two kayaks, two bikes and two paddle boards are provided free-of-charge so that you can explore the creek or bike to the many restaurants and shops on Coleman Blvd. Enjoy the shade of the property's southern live oak trees or soak up the sun as you fish or crab off the deep water dock. Guests are welcome to bring their own boat for an extra charge, or bring your own paddle board/kayak to use in Shem Creek (only a 20 min paddle to Charleston Harbor). This bird lovers paradise showcases marsh and fresh water birds throughout almost 2 acres of land (Bald eagles, ospreys and otters have been spotted on the lake).

About Jackie Line

In order to stay home with my two children, my husband and I decided renting out the the Studio on the first floor would be a great opportunity to help subsidize our mortgage, and share our beautiful location.

Jackie Line purchased this studio in 2013

Why Jackie Line chose Mount Pleasant

Once you arrive, you will see what a unique piece of property this is. With Shem Creek on one side of the garden and a five acre lake on the other side, we enjoy spectacular views of the lake and the marsh. Yet we are a stones throw to the heart of Mt Pleasant. And only a 10 minute drive to the beach and 10 minutes from historic downtown Charleston.

What makes this studio unique

You will be the only person sharing this property with us. You have access to the creek, kayaks and two bicycles to help you explore Mt Pleasant. Also available is the ability to bring your boat (up to 23 feet) and leave it in the water, so you can enjoy all the water activities Charleston has to offer without having to launch your boat daily. The dock has power and water to clean you boat and catch. There is good fishing off the dock for red fish, trout and flounder.

A perfect get-away for two!

  • 5 of 5

Jackie's studio on Shem Creek is a very lovely place. The apt is beautifully decorated, comfortable for 2, and stocked with most everything you need. The welcome wine and crackers were a lovely touch. Coffee by the lake right outside the apartment, or on the dock by the creek was a great way to spend each morning. There are cruiser bikes which are just fine for checking out the area or biking to Sullivan Island. Two kayaks were perfect for a sunset ride. Jackie was very accommodating, even volunteering to help start a fire in the giant fire pit available for guest use. All-in-all, a wonderful stay. I've already recommended the Studio on Shem Creek to a few friends and hope to return again. Many thanks!

Shem Creek

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. Beautiful studio apartment, beautiful location, wonderful amenities. My favorite was sitting on the dock enjoying the warm sunshine.

The location gave us easy access to restaurants and highways. The owners were very hospitable! I would highly recommend a visit to Shem Creek!

An Oasis

  • 5 of 5

There is so much to do and see in Charleston and Mt. Pleasant—historical sights, beaches, museums etc., but for us staying at Shem Creek ranked the best of our vacation. The apartment is so comfortable and beautifully decorated. The location is convenient to everything a person might want to do. The property is amazing and Jackie and Chris were very welcoming making sure we enjoyed all their home had to offer especially the spectacular sunsets. We are looking forward to returning.

Attention to detail makes the stay complete.

What a beautiful setting to relax and enjoy and only minutes from downtown Charleston. Jackie left nothing to chance, we had everything we needed for our long weekend. The grounds were like a park surrounded by water and their dock had the most spectacular sunsets. We will definitely be back!
