About this listing
I have a private bedroom with a full bathroom (hall bathroom), in my clean, updated 3 bedroom home centrally located in Mt. Pleasant, right off the Isle of Palms connector. My home is in a very quiet, safe neighborhood and is less than 3 miles from Isle of Palms, 6 miles from Sullivans Island, and 11 miles from (website hidden). Pleasant has everything you need, including numerous grocery stores, Towne Center shopping, a library, post office, banks, plentiful restaurants and bars, fantastic attractions, beautiful parks, and outdoor recreation such as tennis, kayaking, and boat tours. Come enjoy Charleston’s historic culture, renowned restaurants and fabulous night life! The bedroom is furnished with a queen-sized bed, dresser and plenty of closet space. The bed has quality bedding and mattress. I also have towels and basic toiletries for your use and a washer and dryer you're welcome to use should you need it during your stay. Free, fast wi-fi is available throughout the home. The kitchen, with an eat-in area, is available to guests as well as use of the rest of the home. You're welcome to use the fully equipped kitchen if you'd like. I have a Cuisinart coffee machine, Cuisinart Convection Toaster Oven Broiler, and a microwave that is also a convection oven. Please feel free to bring any food or drink items you like and use the refrigerator. I also have a gas-grill on the back deck that you're welcome to use. There are vaulted ceilings in the family room with a wood-burning fireplace and a door that opens to the private backyard with deck, perfect for grilling out or relaxing watching the wildlife in the pond. The family room has a TV if you just want to kick back and relax. There is on-site parking, in the double driveway. To take full advantage of what the Charleston area has to offer you really need a car. Although car rental places are everywhere, prices are generally better if you rent one at the Charleston Airport. Thrifty, Enterprise, and Advantage are usually the cheapest options. The weekends are much cheaper for car rentals. You can often get a small car Friday through Monday for less than $75. But if you don't have a car, the CARTA bus system is available for transportation. The nearest bus stop is a 10 minute walk away. Buses go to Charleston, Isle of Palms and Sullivans Island. I have a 10 year old Labrador Retriever, named Zoe, who is extremely well behaved, great with everyone she meets, and sleeps in my room. You're welcome to bring a well-behaved dog, or other animal, of your own for an additional fee of $10/night. I work as a realtor at Carolina One Real Estate, and my schedule varies, so please feel free to come and go as you please. I will also gladly provide you with personalized recommendations for restaurants/attractions and anything else that will help make your visit more enjoyable. Don't hesitate to ask if you have additional questions!
Guests have access to everything in my home. Nothing is off limits!
Interaction with Guests
I interact with my guests as much or as little as they want.
No smoking inside, but you can smoke outside on the front porch or out back on the deck. All I ask is of you is cleanliness and consideration! Please pick up after yourselves (clothes, towels, etc in the bathroom; dishes in the kitchen). The kitchen is available for self-serve meals. I have a coffeemaker that you're welcome to use. Please be sure to turn off any appliances after use. There is almost always milk and fruit juice in the fridge, and you can help yourself to any food items that may be available. Check the cabinets for cereal and snacks. You are welcome to use the kitchen to prepare any meals.
My wife and I spent three nights at Margaret's recently, meeting up with our daughter's family who were vacationing on Isle Of Palms. The location is ideal to Isle of Palms which is five minutes over the connector, and convenient enough to Charleston (about 15 minutes). Margaret's is a comfortable place, very clean, nice dog Zoe. Margaret is hospitable and helpful as well. We were glad we stayed here and would definitely recommend Margaret's.
Margaret was an absolutely wonderful host. She was at the house when we arrived, showed us around and told us we were free to use anything in the kitchen. Her house is so clean, and she keeps the bathroom for guests stocked with clean towels, and even travel sized bathroom essentials in case you forgot yours. Margaret is so nice and easy to talk to, and it's obvious that she truly cares and takes pride in her home. If we are in the area again, we will definitely stay with Margaret.
Another great stay at Margaret's home. Peaceful, clean and so relaxing. I already miss Zoe.
Loved our stay at Margaret's place! The room and house were as described. The bed was so comfortable! Her easy going personality made us feel welcome and relaxed right away. So close to the beach and a few minutes to downtown Charleston! Perfect.
I arrived to find a perfectly lovely, neat, clean home with the most gorgeous backyard you can imagine. I felt welcome the entire time I stayed whether Margaret was home or not. Of course, there is Zoe, dog, to make you feel welcome. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom lovely, and the neighborhood extremely safe. I would gladly stay here again!
This was a wonderful place to stay. I really enjoyed my time with Margaret and Zoe. Margaret really made me feel at home. I had the use of the kitchen and even the grill outside. The bed was really comfortable. I felt very safe here. The neighborhood was very quiet and shopping and restaurants were within walking distance. I will definitely stay here again.
Margaret was very welcoming and the room was exactly as pictured. Margaret was also helpful with suggestions for places to visit and very accommodating with my schedule. The back porch was a great place to relax in the evenings.

About the Host, Margaret
I am originally from Isle of Palms, SC and have lived in Mt. Pleasant since 1991. I share my daughter´s passion for horses, and I love to spend time at the beach with "my other daughter," my Labrador Retriever, Zoe. Mostly, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
