Amazing apartment in an adorable location

We had a wonderful stay. Everything we needed was provided and easily accessible. The apartment was very clean and well kept. We loved the village feel of the historic commons. We'll definitely be back!

Fantastic base for exploring Charleston

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Shem Creek. The apartment is huge, has everything you need, really homely and in a lovely setting.

Location is ideal for exploring Charleston and the surrounding area, only $10 taxi ride to downtown and there’s a whole host of local bars and restaurants a few minutes walk away where you can enjoy amazing sunsets and dolphins passing by in the creek.

We’d really recommend this place to anyone looking to experience a bit of “local life” whilst being able to dip in and out of the tourist attractions! Thanks for a great stay.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This condo is spacious, immaculate, well decorated and convenient to everything in Mt Pleasant and the beach. Just over the Ravenel Bridge, it’s minutes from all downtown Charleston has to offer too. A great spot where I would definitely stay again

A Great Place and Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here for a 3-day weekend. Very clean and nicely furnished.

A perfect location for us.... so close to the Shem Creek Restaurants/Bars and a stroll around the Boardwalk.

A fantastic apartment that was wonderful from the location, fun décor, to the comfortable bed.

  • 5 of 5

The location of the apartment was perfect! We were able to site see all day and be able to come back, make dinner, relax, walk on the Shem Creek boardwalk to watch the sun set, and fall asleep in a comfortable bed. We appreciated having a clean place to return to after a busy day. It was important for us to be able to prepare our own food, so a well stocked kitchen was wonderful. If you have trouble with stairs, this is not the place for you, but if you're looking for a peaceful nights sleep in a great location, book this for your visit to Charleston.

Clean, quaint & central to everything!

  • 5 of 5

My girls and I took a last minute to Charleston for spring break and found this perfect spot central to restaurants and equidistant to both downtown and the beach! Also, Shem Creek is a great little area with so many good restaurants and beautiful water walkways in the park.

The house itself has a stocked kitchen, comfy bed, washer/dryer and a pullout in the living room and a large TV. Also, the owner, Welsh, was super helpful and great to book with. We definitely recommend it!
