About Tom and Duval Acker

Why Tom and Duval Acker chose Mount Pleasant

I'OnHaven was built in 2016, meets I'On neighborhood standards, and is completely legal short term Studio rental for the discerning traveler. A gorgeous, complete kitchen encourages cooking and every convenience is included. No cost was spared to make I'OnHaven a top-notch, convenient, attractive, private vacation spot. Mt. Pleasant & our neighborhood, I'On, both require minimum rental term of 28 days. We love to do the right thing and follow both the local municipal laws and neighborhood requirements.

From the moment we arrived we loved the place. There is lots of storage space to allow you to unpack and start enjoying yourself. The kitchen and bathroom are exquisite. I’On itself is a beautiful place and only minutes from downtown Charleston. It has many parks, ponds, lakes and trails to explore. There is a wonderful Community Centre, to which you have access. A huge advantage. There are bikes available to help you with sightseeing the neighbourhood. The owners are very accommodating, but not intrusive. This is one of the best VRBO places we have enjoyed. It is easy to recommend a stay in this charming carriage house.

                                                                      It was a joy to host this couple! We enjoyed many of the same things and shared lovely conversation several times. Meeting exceptional people and creating longer-term relationships is an unexpected blessing through our experiences as VRBO owners. These were particularly lovely people and it was a pleasure to meet and serve them.

                                                                      Pleasant, relaxing and comfortable

                                                                      Diane R.

                                                                      I am just loving my stay here and hate the thought of leaving at the end of February. The apartment is even nicer than the pictures. There's everything here you need to stay for a month or longer. The kitchen is well stocked with plenty of glasses and dishes and all the cooking pots and pans you would need, and the linens are of the nicest quality. The layout works really well. There is a nice desk and office chair, so working remotely has been very convenient and comfortable. I'on Village is a lovely neighborhood, there are great walking trails along the Hobcaw Creek and just walking the neighborhood with all it's lovely homes and lakes is a pleasure . The apartment is close to everything, downtown Charleston is only ten minutes away and the Shem Creek area is just five minutes away. You're close to grocery stores, shops and great restaurants. The neighborhood is pleasant and quiet. Duval and Tom have been a pleasure to know and have made sure that my stay have been so pleasant. I've already booked for next year, can't wait !!

                                                                      We are so enjoying our guests, too, and deeply appreciate knowing she's enjoying I'OnHaven so much! We don't see our guests often, but we're close by, making sure they are comfy, everything's working as it should be, and helping out when needed. We planned I'OnHaven to be a retreat from everyday life for our guests, giving them a bit of luxury while nestled up in the trees, where it's quiet and peaceful. It's working! Thanks, my friend, for your thoughtful message ~
