About Mike Elder

I was an owner of a Contemporary art gallery for 8 years in Charleston so the house is full of contemporary art, enjoy! I currently live downtown close to the house.

Mike Elder purchased this house in 2014

Why Mike Elder chose Charleston

I'm originally from New York but fell in love with Charleston over ten years ago and didn't leave. The East Side is one of the most interesting areas of the city in my opinion, close to everything while still not being fully gentrified.

What makes this house unique

Able to walk to all of Charleston's popular destinations downtown and on Upper King, while also having easy access to the area housing the newly-renovated Cigar Factory make the East Side the place to be for urban, engaged people.

Nice and renovated; all we needed

  • 5 of 5

Was a great place for 2 people as it was clean and fully stocked. Provided was a free off the street parking space which is a plus. Steps to the upstairs were steep but we managed. As with what the other reviewers stated it was a bit north of the main historic district. We love to walk so had no issues. The area is up and coming but still needs some work. We had a great time and would definitely recommend as the price was right for the Charleston area. Thank you!

Nice Place

  • 4 of 5

Mike, Thank you for having us. The place was really clean and well stocked. My only complaint was the A/C wasn’t working and we just ended up using the ceiling fans. We only scratched the surface coming to Charleston for four days. We will be back!!

Thanks again.

Great place for two!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our chocolate lab for our first wedding anniversary and we loved it! The house was so SPOTLESS when we arrived and had everything we needed, including a full Brita! Seriously, amazing. I would stay here again and definitely recommend it to a couple!

The property was perfect with the owner supplying many extra touches!

  • 4 of 5

The supplied welcome package was a wealth of information! Cottage very clean and comfortable. Although located in newly designated historic district, still a drive's distance to the heart of things. Surrounding neighborhoods hopefully have a bright future.

Great Charleston Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Charleston.

The owner Mike was very helpful, with great recommendations for places to see and places to eat. He provides a welcome guide which gives loads of information, much of which we made use of.

We stayed in Unit B. There is a kitchen and living room downstairs, and bedroom and bathroom upstairs. It had everything we needed. The kitchen is sufficiently stocked, the living room is comfortable for watching a little TV at the end of the day, and the upstairs bedroom and bathroom are very comfortable. As others have pointed out, the stairs are a bit steep. We had no problems, but those that struggle with stairs might struggle with these.

We loved the location of the unit. We walked everywhere we wanted to go. We parked the car in the provided off street parking spot on arrival, and never got back in it. The neighborhood is a mix of houses ranging from completely renovated, to houses being renovated, to houses needing work (to put it kindly). Most of Charleston is like that, which for us, added to the character of the city.
