About Joe Shuford
I am semi retired from the medical business and my wife is a nurse at MUSC. We own several properties next door and are big fans of this area. We have one son and live in the old village in Mt Pleasant. In fact our home is only 4 blocks away from this property. Though we have recently acquired this property it is our goal to provide the best experience possible for your stay. The previous owner has done a fantastic job renovating and setting the tone of happy clients for the last 3 years. We plan to carry on that same level of service in hopes that you return for many more visits to our wonderful city.

Why Joe Shuford chose Old Village
You cannot get a better location than this one. A private house one block from Shem Creek. The beaches are close, the heart of Charleston is a 12 minute drive and inside of 3 blocks are coffee shops, restaurants, a beverage super store, antique malls and more. All this and a very nice private property with outdoor living space.

Charming property close to everything
Wonderful location and accommodations!
The property was very nice and in a perfect location. The owner was accommodating and easy to reach.
The property was perfect for our stay because of the amenities and the location. We would definitely return and rent again.
Clean and Convenient!
My husband, friend, friend's husband, and I stayed for a long weekend at the Coastal Cottage. We found it to be very clean, comfy, and convenient to everything we wanted to do! We went to Isle of Palms for the beach, the Tanger Outlets for some shopping, and to numerous places in Charleston and Mt Pleasant for meals. Nothing was further than an easy 20 min drive, and many dining/coffee options were within walking distance!
As for the house itself, the beds were very comfy and the water pressure in the shower was just right. On top of that, I take very long showers and did not have a problem with the hot water running out on me (or anyone else for that matter).
Overall, we would definitely recommend the Coastal Cottage to two couples or even two parents and two children - just make sure you don't mind sharing one bathroom and you'll be good to go. :)
Perfect summer getaway
Our family of 3 had an amazing time at Joe's coastal cottage. Location could not be beat - 15 mins from historic Charleston, 10 mins to Sullivan's Island, a stone's throw to Shem Creek and an amazing cafe and restaurant. The house itself is spotless and had all the amenities we needed to quickly get into vacation mode. Communicating with Joe was seamless; he responded very promptly to our emails and was very pleasant to meet briefly during our stay. Thank you so much for accommodating us on our first trip to Charleston!
The coastal cottage was a beautiful retreat!
I recently stayed at the coastal cottage with my sister, mother, and grandmother and we had the best time! The owner was extremely accommodating and had great suggestions for the area! The cottage is located in the perfect location to explore downtown Charleston and Sullivan’s island both! We walked to the Vintage Coffee Cafe every morning for breakfast and it was delicious! We are already planning a girls trip to return to the coastal cottage in the fall!
Clean and very charming
This is an amazing place to stay. It was close to everything: shopping, eating, boat tour, kayaking, beach, night life. We were able to meet Joe, who was able to give us other points of interest and welcomed us to his cottage. It’s a definite place we would return to and our high anxiety dog really appreciated the fenced in area and patio. 😄� Fabulous!!!
