relaxing and lovely place to stay
The property is as described and very quiet and peaceful. The view from the balcony was beautiful and we enjoyed many evenings out there. Susan was very accommodating and we enjoyed the stay very much.
Loved our stay!
Charming, private with creek peeks, great location!
Wonderful Spring in Mt. Pleasant!
We were so lucky to have booked this lovely apartment for a month. We wanted to get away from the snow and enjoy an early spring in the Charleston area, and that's what we did! The carriage house is located in the historic neighborhood of I'On, reminiscent of downtown Charleston, with beautiful landscaped residences, perfect for daily walks and bike rides. In addition, the 2.5 mile Hobcaw Creek marsh trail starts right behind the house. Great bird life in the marsh and spectacular sunsets. The apartment is only a 10 minute drive to downtown Charleston, and a 20 minute drive to Isle of Palms and Sullivan's Island beaches. The apartment was well laid out, with a great walk-in shower, and a very comfortable four poster bed. Susan, her family, and family dog, Baylor, were great hosts. We hated to leave! John & Joanne
The carriage house was perfect!
We stayed for 4 weeks and enjoyed our stay very much. The carriage house was perfect and very comfortable. We loved being located in I’on. We enjoyed walking everyday on the walking parh right next to the house and throughout the beautiful neighborhood. Susan the owner was very accessible to answer all our questions and was very helpful with anything we needed. We will definitely be back next year!
We loved Charleston and Our Location at the Carriage House
Beautiful spot and the carriage house was wonderful. We loved using the bikes and had access to paddle boards and a golf cart - so cool! Our only suggestion would be to perhaps have a bit more supplies in the kitchen and the house! However, our host could not have been more hospitable and we would definitely return to her fantastic location and accommodations.
Beautiful Carriage House
My husband and I stayed in this lovely carriage house for a week in mid-June. The inside was beautifully appointed and the view from the porch overlooking the creek was breathtaking, particularly at sunset. Susan, our hostess, could not have been more accommodating, offering advice on local points of interest, restaurants, and beaches. She also provided beach chairs and towels. It's a lovely home in a lovely neighborhood. We hope to return.
Thank you Sister!
