About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6 - Fenced in Private Yard - Outdoor Shower

This is a renovated duplex apartment located in the heart of Mt. Pleasant. It has a cozy cottage feel with an outdoor shower and private fenced in back yard. Dogs allowed, bring the whole family! Bike and walk most anywhere; bikes provided! Don't just stay here, feel what it's like to live here! Only a 15 minute walk to the restaurants and activities of Shem Creek. Less than a mile to the boat launch. Centrally located; just 6 miles to the beautiful beaches of Sullivan's Island, and 6 miles to historic downtown Charleston.

This is one side of a renovated duplex in a quiet, established neighborhood located in the heart of Mt. Pleasant. It is not on a through street, which means that is has little traffic. The street loops around to Shem Creek less than a block away, which makes for a short, picturesque walk.

The duplex was built in 1960. It is made out of brick and has a classic, simple feel to it, but is by no means perfect. We recently completed a number of renovations which included landscaping, painting inside, all new furniture, a large patio in the back yard, marble tile in the bathroom, and a beautiful, fully enclosed, outdoor shower. It has its own private fenced in back yard that is HUGE, and perfect for dogs.

There are two bedrooms, each has two windows for plenty of sunlight. One bedroom is tile, and a queen bed. The other has bunk beds, a double bed, and wood floors. The rest of the house has solid teak floors that are just beautiful (at least we think so)! We have two sofas in the living area that encompass a wall mounted TV. The bathroom has solid marble tile floors and bead board siding. It is a comfortably sized galley kitchen that includes a regular size stove, refrigerator, and dishwasher. Teak floors adorn the kitchen as well. At some point we look forward to upgrading the cabinets and counter tops. Currently they are clean and functional, although a bit dated.

The other side of the duplex is a short term rental as well and each has its own private entrance with a screened in porch. They also both have their own private, fenced in back yard. This Unit is slightly more expensive due to the larger sized kitchen with a dishwasher and other recent updates.

It is conveniently located less than a mile from Shem Creek. We could write a small book on all that Shem Creek and the local area has to offer. We have two little boys, a Giant Schnauzer, and we love going out to eat and sampling some of the world class restaurants the Charleston area has to offer (with and without kids and dog.) We love sharing what we have discovered whether you are looking for things to do with your kids, dogs, or need some adult time. Just ask! We moved here 4 years ago and still feel like we are on vacation. Oh, we also have two beach cruisers for you to use, included in the rental. Our favorite way to explore the area is on bikes, so we wanted to share that with our guests. Sullivan's island and downtown Charleston are both roughly 6 miles in opposite directions on the same road with bike paths the whole way to each. Depending on how adventurous you are, you can head out the front door and be on the beach, or enjoying all that downtown Charleston has to offer without ever getting in your car. There are also water taxis downtown if you do not want to ride the bridge. Again, just ask, we have information on all of that.

Within an 8 minute walk out the front door there is a Starbucks and a host of great places to eat, shop, or grab a drink.

We keep a lockbox on the door. We will give you the code prior to check in. This unit is the A side, on the right. It has it's own private entrance through a screened in porch. The backyard also has it's own private entrance from the driveway. It is fully enclosed with a privacy fence. There is also a door from the kitchen leading to the patio and backyard.

You have access to the entire house. Feel free to explore the cabinets and drawers, everything there if for you to use. If guests leave cooking supplies or non perishables behind we leave them for other guests to use. That way you are not running to the store for ketchup or olive oil at the last minute.

Cute, quaint, home in perfect location for visiting downtown Charlotte and the beaches

  • 5 of 5

We loved this VrBo. The house was quaint and in a great location for us. We were able to get downtown Charleston and to the beaches on Isle of Palms and Sullivan’s Island. The yard was a nice addition as well. The owners left us with a few little treats that we indulged in and loved!

Race Ready

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property in order to run The Cooper River Bridge Run 10K. The start line was just steps from the front door. We could have depended on the race announcer to serve as alarm clock. Everything was absolutely great! We did not want for anything during our stay. Even without considering the race, the location was wonderful. Supermarkets, restaurants, shopping, bars and entertainment are all very close with most anything you would want or need located within a mile. Downtown Charleston is just a hop and skip over the bridge and an easy Uber or Lyft ride away or take the water taxi from nearby Patriots Point. The hosts were fantastic and I would recommend this property to anyone visiting the Charleston area.

Dogs loved it! And we did too!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed here during spring break with my boyfriend, mother, and our combined 3 dogs. At first we were surprised that it was a duplex but after the initial surprise of it, it was no problem as there was no sound from the neighbors and we each had our own driveways and backyards. The place was very nice and clean and made us feel right at home. We especially enjoyed the coffee, cake, and wine that the owners so graciously gave us upon arrival. This unit provided absolutely everything we needed that we didn’t think to bring like sugar and lighters for the grill, etc. The location was excellent- far enough away from the center city area to feel at home and peaceful, but close enough to be within 5 minutes of everywhere in the area we wanted to visit. Our dogs loved adventuring in the backyard and the tennis balls that a previous tenant must have left. We loved it so much that we are already planning to come back in July! Thanks again to the owners for being so great and welcoming!

Great Dane loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We (two humans, one canine) absolutely loved our stay at the Cozy Coastal Cottage. Rebecca and Brad were extremely attentive and gracious hosts. The neighborhood is wonderfully quiet and the area could not be more welcoming to dogs. Our Great Dane had a fabulous time lounging in the fully fenced-in yard and under the big palm tree out front. The house is very nice, comfortable and clean; great cross-breezes from the screened-in porch (plus nice ceiling fans) and the hosts have paid attention to details, such as the comfortable linens and the good quality kitchen and bathroom staples. We took advantage of the in-house bikes and can now highly recommend a seashore ride at Sullivan's Island beach.

Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Great spot if you need a weekend (or long weekend) getaway in the Charleston area. As everyone mentioned, we were greeted with delicious cake, wine, and coffee. The place was also well stocked with basic necessities - paper towels, tp, towels, wash cloths, laundry detergent, shampoo, etc. There were two bikes - great for a ride down to Sullivan's Island and around Mt. Pleasant. The outdoor shower was also an added bonus. Because there is only one bathroom (we were traveling with another couple) it's nice to have this addition. It's not a huge space, so not one to host a gathering, but an excellent centrally located touch down point. There's cable, wifi, easy off-street parking, beach chairs, and a nice/quiet patio with grill. Rebecca and Brad were very responsive, and quick to return the deposit. Would definitely stay here again.
