This pet friendly cottage consists of 2 bedrooms each with queen size beds and one bathroom. Living area opens into the kitchen with a dining table for four and traditional coastal cottage decor. A complete renovation of the property, brand new furnishings, great outdoor space and the proximity to great views, activities and food make this the perfect vacation get away.

Why Joe Shuford chose Old Village
You cannot get a better location than this one. A private house one block from Shem Creek. The beaches are close, the heart of Charleston is a 12 minute drive and inside of 3 blocks are coffee shops, restaurants, a beverage super store, antique malls and more. All this and a very nice private property with a private, well landscaped outdoor living space.

This home is furnished with all you will need for your visit and is very clean. The decor is perfect. There are a variety of books, games, internet and cable for entertainment, but we enjoyed sitting outside. The kitchen has all the modern conveniences, as well as, everything you would need to whip up a meal or snack. We appreciated having a washer and dryer. The beds are very comfortable.The location could not be better. It's a ten minute drive to endless shopping and dining, the history of downtown Charleston, and the beautiful beaches of Sullivan's Island and the Isle of Palms. There are also plenty of places to visit within walking distance. We found the area to be quiet, and the neighbors were polite. This home is the ideal place to stay while in the area!
Bright and Airy Feel
Joe's place was newly remodeled and was bright and clean. We had friends staying on Patriot's Point, so the location was perfect for us, and downtown was an inexpensive Uber ride away. If you have done Charleston before, then there may not be any need to Uber at all; the house is just a few steps from several bars and restaurants and there is also a package store a stone's throw away. If the weather is nice, I encourage guests to walk to the end of the street and hang out on Shem Creek for an ice cold beverage.
Nice, cozy cottage!
We enjoyed meeting the owner, Joe and his two adorable dogs! It was a pleasure to speak with him. He answered any questions we had. The cottage was perfect for us! Cozy, clean and had everything we needed. It's close to everything, shopping and beaches. We loved our stay here at Shem Creek cottage!
The cottage was cute, clean, convenient, and thoughtfully stocked.
We enjoyed our stay at Shem Creek Cottage. Will definitely stay there
again if in the Charleston area.
Great house in a great location
Great house for a small family or a couple looking for extra room. Kitchen and living room area feels bigger than expected. Parking right in front of the house and walking distance to several of the most popular spots in Mt. Pleasant. Joe is awesome to work with and makes the process as easy as possible. Great alternative to a stuffy hotel room.
Quaint, clean cottage close to Charleston and great neighborhoods
Perfect for getaway for a few days and very close to lots of great sights and restaurants.
