Overview

About the property

Location- Location- Location 1 mi beach/6 mi dwntwn/ 2 blocks-8 restaurant/pubs

HISTORIC CHARLESTON OFFERS THE BEST OF ALL WORLDS: INCREDIBLE BEACHES, YEAR ROUND FESTIVALS- ART & MUSIC, HISTORIC SIGHTSEEING, WORLD CLASS DINING, GREAT WEATHER ALL YEAR, & SO MUCH MORE...

Excellent location ! Excellent prices ! Directly across the 3/4 mile causeway from Sullivan's Island pristine beaches, in beautiful old village mount pleasant.

Located in a very safe area 1 mile to Sullivan's Island Beach, 6 miles to downtown, 12 miles to the airport, 2 miles to Shem Creek’s famous seafood restaurants, 4 miles to the Yorktown at Patriot’s Point, and 1 mile to Pitt Street Bridge, this condo offers a huge King size Rice Bed in bedroom as well as a top line queen sleeper in LR. The full bath with extra deep tub/shower is located thru BR. The living area is open concept with large comfy denim sleeper (beautyrest), wing back chair, and 42' HDTV, small kitchen is fully equipped, and dining table seats 4 comfortably. A stack washer/dryer is in hall closet. 1 assigned/marked parking space is assigned to our unit.

Walk a mile to Sullivan’s island’s gorgeous beach and fun pubs, or a mile the other direction to Old Pitt Street Bridge, a 1000-foot pier, is a favorite biking, walking, crabbing, fishing destination on the Intercoastal Waterway with incredible sunsets overlooking downtown Charleston. A full shopping center, 2 grocery stores, and 9 restaurants/pubs are less than 2 blocks walk. There are five top golf courses within 10 to 20 minutes drive and many more 30-45 minutes.

One of our best features is that we are located in a much lower traffic area than most of the Charleston Area. Mount Pleasant’s Old Village is accessible to downtown and beaches without entering the main traffic areas of Hwy 17 which have become a burden to our city. Directions will be direct and simple and involve few complicating factors. This can make a serious difference in your experience. It was built in 1975, renovated in 2008. The Village is the nicest area, but all the brand new places are miles up the HWY. Holidays are a 4 night min.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS CONDO DOES NOT HAVE "VIEWS". Thoe photos are from the area. Our beachfront condo with higher rates Does have views and balcony...NOT this condo, which has GREAT LOCATION but NO Views.

DOGs must be approved and PET FEE covered!!! Dogs who BARK REPEATEDLY when left in condo will have to then stay with guests at all times, or LEAVE WITHOUT REFUND !! ...iF THERE IS SOME CHANCE OF THIS, DO NOT BOOK!

No Cats - I am sorry to say it costs over $1000 to de-allergy for cats, and my daughter, as well as other guests, are severely allergic, so we cannot accept cats.

(We provide a lmited amount of start-up paper goods, soaps, etc.

We will always have some linens that get suntan oil/accelorator/ shaving nick stained after 1st/2nd use, but buy 4+ new sets a year, and cannot do new ones every stay. Some guests prefer to bring their own for maximum comfort.)

It is standard practice to have guests empty trash, as they may have stinky stuff (diapers, seafood shells...) which permeates the place when not cleaned for hours, or occasionally the next day.

About Susan Player Verbsky

I am Susan Player Verbsky, a wife and mother by God's Grace, a Psychotherapist by training, with a small practice here for 20 years, and a Real Estate investment and management specialist by design for the same time period. I enjoy the great intangible rewards of Therapy, and, equally, the tangible rewards of developing a property and working with people planning vacation time.

Susan Player Verbsky purchased this condo in 2013

Why Susan Player Verbsky chose Mount Pleasant

My parents own a large wonderful beachfront home that rents a week I have managed for 15 years. We decided to invest in some vacation rentals that would easily accessible to the beach and historic downtown, and a more affordable vacation here for smaller families/groups. I am from this area, we live close by, and just love this location.

What makes this condo unique

We are truly in the best possible location for accessibility to all facets of vacationing in the Charleston area: lowest traffic area, safest area, beautiful area, easy directions to all locations from Myrtle Court, and just moments to everything. Outside of beachfront or South of Broad Luxury (with the price tag that must follow), we have the very best to offer. Larger groups and families may want to look at our 2BR (king/queen/bunks/2 full futons)/2.5 BA, our beachfront condo, and larger family gatherings our family 6BR beachhouse. Look at "All my listings" next to owner info : )

We buy 4+ new sets a year of 100% cotton, and rotate those to have fresh on hand for cleanings, but cannot do new ones every stay and be reasonably priced. Some guests prefer to bring their own for maximum comfort. When guests used the outside linen service in the past, they got 50/50 poly/cotton very cheap sheets/towels, and were unhappy. Our linens are carefully, fully laundered. We also provide a limited amount of start-up paper goods, soaps, etc. This is a storage space issue, not $

Great location.

  • 4 of 5

This was a very cute and pleasant condo to stay in near Sullivan's Island. I was very appreciative of the neighbors beside us. They were so helpful and friendly. My phone had died upon arrival and I was unable to access the info. When I was able to use my phone, I realized I had not been given the access code for the house key. I spoke with the manager first, who wasn't the friendliest at first but helpful. The owners also contacted me with the info very quickly. I really liked the layout of the condo with its combo living and dining room. The couch and king size bed was very comfortable. The parking spot that goes with the condo was a great spot too. Publix, ABC store, and many restaurants were all within walking distance. Loved that. I recommend Steel City pizza and Your Father's Moustache. The beach is less than a 5 minute drive away. There is only street side parking on the island. So you either need to get there at 8am or 10am to get a decent parking spot, otherwise you will end up at Isle of Palms. I plan on staying here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. I am glad it worked well for you, and very sorry you had a challenge getting your code. It isn't part of the site info guests receive, because we change it often for safety. Susan V

Convenient location

  • 3 of 5

Picked this unit due to its deacription of being family friendly and it being centrally located near the beach and Charleston. When we arrived the unit was as described but after reading the 2 pages of "rules" and "cleaning guidelines," I was wondering if I had picked correctly. Unit is quiet and well stocked but the neighbor sits outside the door and chain smokes. I know the owner doesn't have control over this, but the neighbor smoking causes the living room/kitchen to smell like stale smoke almost the entire stay.

Owner charged a $60 cleaning fee, but requests you wash the sheets and towels along with take the trash out to the dumpster on the other side of the building before you leave. Why am I paying a cleaning service if I'm doing laundry, dishes, and the trash?

Wish there were better details on the unit description, then we could have gone with another unit. We pride ourselves on being a courteous renters and leaving the home in excellent condition, but Susan didn't come off as a courteous host in her notes left on the fridge and in the binder.

Owner's Response: I wish that I had heard about this soon upon arrival, Instead of after departure, so I could have handled/clarified these matters immediately. I inquired about the conditions of the condo, thru site And directly, shortly after arrival, requesting to be notified of any issues in order to ACT IMMEDIATELY at hour/day ONE. 1 - Our HOA by-laws require that smokers go outside of the entryway/covered common areas and stairways to smoke, for exactly that reason. I have the phone number of that new, young, and occasionally thoughtless neighbor for reasons just such as this. Signs have been ordered by the HOA as of today to prevent this into the future. 2 - There was an older set of rules there, changed immediately upon notice. Guests USED to be Requested to strip sheets and put in laundry, with $10 lower cleaning fee. It is and REMAINS standard practice to have guests empty trash, as they may have Stinky trash (shrimp heads/shells, sardine cans, feminine products, diapers...) which permeates the place when not cleaned for hours, or occasionally until next day. If you are offended at taking out your own trash, please do not rent from us. 3 - This guest received apologies and a refund of the entire cleaning fee upon complaint sent AFTER departure. That will not be the case next time. I would have preferred to Stop the smoking, Clarify no sheets stripped, and that Trash is standard outside of motels, right away. This stay in a Premium Condo, in Premium Location, Mid-July Weekend cost this guest $137.33 + tax per night, and throwing away their own diapers seemed outrageous? Susan V

It is very neat and tidy.

Perfect for a couple to stay. Close to stores and not too far away from​ the beach.

Mt. Pleasant visit

  • 5 of 5

I was in town working and stayed at Susan's property. Her condo is super clean and Susan was easy to communicate with. The property location is perfect for accessing the beaches and other great local areas. Everything in the Charleston area is already easily accessible and I particularity enjoyed the condo location being in the Mt. Pleasant area. If you're looking for a condo with open air access or a view, this would not be the best fit. The traffic noise is loud outside the unit, but inside it's quiet and comfortable. You need to leave the condo property if you want to enjoy the outdoors. This was not a problem for me, since so many great places are nearby. Don't miss the Farmers Market on Tuesdays throughout the summer. The designated parking spot at the foot of the stairs was very convenient!

Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The location was great, Sullivan's Island was so close and it's a quick expressway drive to everything Charleston has to offer. The condo was very cute and comfortable, the king bed was the most comfortable I've slept on in a long time. Susan was very attentive and kept in contact with us throughout our stay and was great to work with. We will definitely stay here again!

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

The location was great very convenient to the beach, downtown Charleston etc. The actual place (apart) size was fine and had everything we needed. We would recommend this place to others.

Sincerely,

Nancy Ross
