For my wife and I, this beautifully renovated studio in the stunning community of Ion in Mount Pleasant was the perfect place to stay for spending time around the holidays with family in the Charleston area. Ideally situated near the Route 17 corridor, it’s a quick drive to the city, the beaches, great restaurants and popular grocery stores like Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s. Ion itself is a wonderful place to explore with it’s narrow streets, charming homes, ponds, parks and a wooded walking/biking path along the marsh. Within walking distance is a great little place where the locals go for happy hour. Called The Shelmore, it offers $1.50 oysters, delicious wines and an interesting menu. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.
