Guest suite in Mt Pleasant
Charleston Harbor view, garage apt
Spacious apartment with high ceilings. The back porch has a fantastic view of Charleston harbor. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood, very close to downtown and also to beaches. Private dock, kayaks, bicycles (not fancy) and the possibility, weather and tides permitting, of a motorboat ride around the harbor. It is incredibly peaceful here; like being in the country, but it's in the middle of the city. Mt Pleasant Short Term Rental License #STR230070, 2022-2023 MP BL Number – 20105072
