Redecorated home with flat screen TVs in all bedrooms and the family room. Direct TV in all bedrooms too. Hardwoods throughout the home with tile in the bathhrooms, Seating area and wine bar. Home is very open, and the kitchen has additional built in bench seating. New stainless dishwasher, new washer and dryer and ceramic tile in the bathrooms. The hardwoods are an addition as well. This is a great home for spending time together - the kitchen is very large and great for cooking and spending time together. Plenty of drive under parking and a back deck for relaxing.

Location, location, location! The location of this home is perfect.

Mount Pleasant Towne Center is just 5 minutes away and is a large, upscale shopping area, complete with movie theater, restaurants and more shops than you can imagine.

It is a very unique, new/old shopping area. It is reminiscent of old downtown areas laid out in squares. Mount Pleasant Shem Creek area, 10 minutes away, has fine restaurants overlooking the shrimp boats on scenic Shem Creek. Historic Charleston is only 20 minutes away. What can I say about Charleston? It is the reason we moved here years ago and chose to get married here. It never loses it's charm. We still are in awe every time we go downtown.

Worth the money

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly what we were looking for! It accommodated 4 adults and as many as 6 children without any problems. It was well stocked with any and all kitchen items as well as ample soap, TP, and paper towels. They even provided laundry detergent. This was my first experience renting a beach house. I would definitely stay here again as I was completely comfortable staying here.

Don't hesitate to reserve this home for your vacation....you'll be completely satisfied with your decision.

Cute, inside, but not well kept. Also, the roof leaked.

  • 3 of 5

We rented for a week, from a Sat to a Sat. We got there on Sat evening at around 6pm, in the rain and thunder. Tried to open the door, in the rain, with no cover over the door, with the combination provided. It did not work. I called the owner (wife) several times and left messages and texts with no response. Finally, we went to the house my cousins had rented and called HomeAway. They said they would try to get in touch with the owner. They said they called about a hundred times. After an hour or so, Homeaway said they would provide us some lodging, which was very nice. But at that time, the owner (husband) called me. He told me that they had changed the combination. He did not apologize or anything, just gave me the new combination. He had no idea we were staying for the week.

So, we went to the house, which has a very tricky parking situation. We went inside and were pleasantly surprised because it was cute inside. The floors and counter tops were clean and there were little soaps and shampoos in the bathrooms, which was a nice touch. They also provided a few packets of dishwasher soap and laundry detergent, as well as a small bottle of dishwashing liquid. That was also very nice because it's hard to buy a whole container of dishwasher soap when you're only there for a couple washes.

Looking around, however, we were not happy. The upholstery was filthy and stained. The kitchen cabinets were also dirty inside and all the utensils and pots and pans were in bad condition, dirty, and all jumbled up inside the cabinets. I did not sit on any upholstered piece of furniture. I only sat on the wooden chairs in the kitchen. The oven was dirty, the coffee maker was stained.

Someone from the management company came, apparently to check on the cleaners, because they, too, had no idea we were going to be there. They asked if everything was alright and I said no. They never asked what it was that was not ok.

The pillows on the bed were very flat. There were extra pillows in the closet, but no extra pillow cases in case you wanted to use two. Also, the pillows in the closet were so stained that I wouldn't want to use them anyway.

Last straw was when the ceiling in the master bathroom started leaking in the rain. Also, it was leaking through the light fixture. We told the owner that we were leaving. She seemed nice and understanding and credited us for the last two days.

Perfect for our family reunion stay

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfectly situated near a family member whose house wasn't large enough for all of us. Easy to find, this house is on the main road and only a few short blocks from the beach. Although on the main road it was really quiet inside and we couldn't hear the traffic. The rooms are well insulated from each other.

The hardwood floors are nice and the house is pretty well equipped for a weekend stay. We didn't really get to explore the area too much so I cannot comment on restaurants or bars. There are lots of stores nearby if you need to buy something you left at home. I did not see an outdoor shower at the house but there is a back deck which was nice for am coffee.

Great location! Property in fair condition

  • 3 of 5

This house is on a somewhat busy street but the beach is just 2 blocks away. The decor is mostly 1980s-1990s. The property is in fair condition, just needs a really deep clean (stains on cushions and curtains in kitchen, dishes in cabinet not completely clean, mildewed shower curtains, pillows a bit musty, etc.). Renters should be aware that there is no ice maker and no condiments or coffee in the kitchen. With minor improvements and a deep clean, we'd consider renting the place again, though, based on location, layout, and reasonable pricing for family accommodations.

Owner's Response: Thank you Stephanie. I have reached out to housekeeping and requested a deep clean on the property. I have also gone out and removed all the curtains, will have them cleaned and rehang. I hope you enjoyed your stay overall and appreciate you staying in our home. I hope you will come back another time.

Wonderful location - you can walk to the WindJammer and the 'downtown' area of the island, as well as the great spots for breakfast. The beach is only 2.5 blocks away - an easy walk and fabulous location.
