About Alison

We moved to the Mount Pleasant area in 2006 and fell in love! Jobs have changed but our heart is still here. This is our home and we are happy to share it. Our daughters are in college in South Carolina at Clemson so we are in the area often.

Alison purchased this house in 2015

Why Alison chose The Groves

This neighborhood and location is the best! We bike and walk everywhere! The Ravanel Bridge has a wonderful biking and walking lane that gives the best view of Charleston and is only 2 miles from the house. Shem Creek has shrimp boats, dolphins swimming, wonderful restaurants and nightlife all within walking distance. Old Mt. Pleasant and Pitt Street Pier are wonderful areas to bike. Historic Charleston or the beach are 10 minutes away! You can have it all by staying here.

What makes this house unique

This home is one level with a open gathering space for everyone to enjoy. The bedrooms are at each end of the house giving privacy when needed. We are boaters and the access to Charleston Harbor is great. Two public boat ramps are within 2 miles. There is a wonderful waterfront part with boardwalks and fishing piers at the end of our street. Morning and evening are serene times to relax and look at the gorgeous views.

Great house and wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect weekend, thank you so much! The house is in a great location. We were able to walk to dinner at Red's Ice House on Shem Creek. Downtown Charleston was also just a quick Uber ride away. The living area of the home is very comfortable and the backyard is perfect for drinks on the patio. We had a group of 4 couples and everyone had plenty of space and just loved the house. We're all hoping to plan a trip back next year!

Loved the home

  • 5 of 5

This home was beautiful. It was just as stated in the discription. The house is decorated very pretty, and provided everything that was needed. It was in the perfect area for our wedding we attended, downtown Charleston and Sullivan's island! We had a wonderful weekend.

Perfect Everything!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this house was perfect. Location, size, cleanliness, amenities, and wonderful owners. There was nothing more we could have asked for. Alison was super easy to work with. The house is beautiful and well maintained. The backyard is perfect for relaxing or kicking around a soccer ball. The beds were comfortable and there were enough for our family of 6, though more could have stayed comfortably. We go to Mount Pleasant 5-6 times a year and will be back to this house!

Beautiful house, very professional owner.

  • 5 of 5

I recommend this house and location, the house is beautiful and we were close to different beaches, the owner was very professional, she left a paper with expectations and phone number in case we needed something, the house was very clean. I would recommend this house to anyone, you would have a great time.
