Enjoy comfortable accommodations in your own queen bedroom with private full bathroom. Located less than 15 minutes from downtown Charleston and the beaches and minutes away from grocery stores, bars, and restaurants.
Enjoy comfortable accommodations in your own bedroom with private full bathroom. The bed is newly upgraded to a pillowtop Queen with luxurious high thread-count sheets. Also included in the room is a dresser, bedside lamp, alarm clock/radio with dual alarms, sitting chair, vanity mirror, and Marpac white-noise machine. The bathroom, which was remodeled in 2011, is attached to the bedroom to ensure maximum privacy. There is a closet with room to hang clothing and a luggage rack for conveniently storing a suitcase or duffel bag. In addition to fresh towels, the bathroom has a hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand soap, and shaving cream. For those with mobility issues, please note the bedroom is on the 2nd floor.
Self-serve breakfast is available. The offerings vary at any given time, but you're welcome to anything in the kitchen that is breakfasty. To help you wake up I have a drip coffee maker and espresso machine both with fresh ground coffee, and assorted tea bags. In the cabinet above the coffee maker you will find a box or two of cereal along with granola and cereal bars. On the other side you'll find bread, English muffins, and sometimes doughnuts or muffins. The refrigerator nearly always has skim milk, soy milk, OJ, and greek yogurt.
My townhouse is located on the western side of Mount Pleasant about two miles east of the Ravenel Bridge, making it very convenient to Shem Creek, downtown Charleston, Sullivan's Island, Isle of Palms, and elsewhere. You can usually be at your destination downtown or on Sullivan's Island in less than 15 minutes. This part of Mount Pleasant has everything you need, including numerous grocery stores (Trader Joes, Whole Foods, Publix, Bi-Lo, Harris Teeter), a library, post office, banks, plentiful restaurants and bars, stellar parks, and outdoor recreation such as tennis, kayaking, bicycle rentals, and boat tours. My house is in a very quiet, safe neighborhood, and is smoke- and pet-free. Do note that my house is within walking distance of 2 or 3 restaurants but beyond that you'd need a car to get around comfortably.
Sustainability is a noticeable theme throughout my home. The towels and linens are laundered with non-toxic, biodegradable detergent and usually line-dried. Household cleaners, soaps, and shampoos are non-toxic and cruelty-free. Most of my home's hot water comes from a solar water heater and I generate more than 80% of my annual electricity via rooftop solar panels.
For those of you who are visiting to explore the wonderful Charleston area, there are some visitor guides and maps in the guest room for your use while staying here. Of course I will also gladly provide you with personalized recommendations for restaurants/attractions and anything else that will help make your visit more enjoyable.

I am usually home when guests arrive but have it setup so people can arrive without me here. My interaction with guests varies, though I always respect my guests' privacy. I like to offer you a beverage and hear your stories at least one evening during your visit.
My house is 5.3 miles from Sullivan's Island, 10.3 miles to Isle of Palms, and 6.0 miles to downtown Charleston.
Mt Pleasant is served by route 40 and route 401. Route 40 is the only way to get from Mt Pleasant into downtown Charleston and it comes by approximately every 40 minutes. Route 401 only travels within Mt Pleasant. The nearest stop for bus 40 is near the intersection of South Shelmore Blvd and the Frontage Rd, directly across from the CVS. If you look at a map website, do a search on the following lat/lon to see the bus stop location. Thirty-two point eight zero nine four six North. Seventy-nine point eight seven seven eight West. It is about a 15 minute walk from my house. The bus takes about 25-30 minutes to reach the Visitor's Center in downtown Charleston. There you can transfer to other buses serving the Charleston peninsula if you choose. The fare is $1.75 each way (bills and coins accepted; exact change needed). You can also purchase one or three day unlimited passes on board. Bus 401 picks up next to Harris Teeter on Houston Northcutt Blvd.
There is no regular bus service to any of the beaches so a taxi or personal vehicle are required.
Approximately $15 each way between my house and downtown Charleston.
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.

Jonathan was a great host. His place was very clean and had everything I needed to feel welcome. It was also a great location to get everywhere in Mt. Pleasant and downtown Charleston very quickly. I would highly recommend staying here, and I hope to stay here again if I am ever in Charleston.
Jonathan was a great host! He was really accommodating when we arrived later than planned due to a delayed flight, and welcomed us with a drink and fun conversation. The room and private bathroom were comfortable and very clean. The location was really convenient - just a 10-minute drive into the main part of Charleston. Jonathan gave us some great suggestions of things to do in the surrounding area. I'd definitely recommend staying here.
We had a great time at Jonathan's home in Mt. Pleasant! It was a convenient location for everything we wanted to do. We had fun chatting with Jonathan and a great first experience with airbnb. Hope to be back in the warmer months!
Jonathan was very welcoming and helpful. He had great suggestions for food, activities and even where to practice yoga! Staying with Jonathan is definitely on the table if I need a place to stay in Charleston again.
My friend and I had a great stay at Jonathan's place. It had everything we needed to work and play as well as a great location that allowed us to explore outside of downtown while saving a few bucks. I would recommend anyone wanting to save some money to look up staying here. He also had some breakfast on the go options for those early mornings (or late nights). I didn't get to meet him at all because he was away, but he stayed in constant communication with us. Thank you Jonathan for offering your home to us.
Jonathan was a wonderful host. He was nice, friendly, and offered us food and beverages upon our arrival and during our stay. I even got to hang out and talk with him a bit, which was a treat. The room was very nice, and it was an added convenience that the bathroom is attached to the private room. I'd highly recommend him and would gladly stay there again. Good location too!
Jonathan is an outstanding host. We enjoyed his warm personality and charm. His home is comfortable, clean, and actually looks like the pictures! We would recommend anyone to stay with this humble and thoughtful guy.
Great host, great space, great place! Jonathan is a delightful host who is easy going and willing to share his knowledge of cool places to eat, visit, etc in Charleston. His place is easy to get by car to downtown and there is a trader joe's and whole foods 5 mins away so our bases were covered. The room was comfy and I loved his shampoos and lotion that were provided. Jonathan is very thoughtful with his amenities and I would recommend a stay with him.
Really well equipped airbnb room with private bathroom - exactly as pictured, very clean and comfortable, with lots of space, we really enjoyed our stay and felt very welcome and at ease. Jonathan was a really friendly host, he took time to welcome us on arrival and suggested local attractions depending on our interests. We would definitely recommend Jonathan's place and would stay again.
Jonathan was a wonderful host and provided a great atmosphere for us to stay for the weekend. Jonathan was very accommodating and even had excellent guide books available in the room. Everything as pictured :)
