What a charming place Merhaven is! My daughter and I instantly felt at home in this nearly century old restored bungalow off of Calhoun Street near the hospital. The owners have taken great care to provide a beautiful indoor and outdoor space for you to relax in between all the sightseeing you'll do on your visit. They provide a wonderful space for you to use as your home base. Hominy Grill is a close walk away for breakfast and Sunday brunch. Be sure to ask for a tour of the house/museum as the owners are amazing artists as well as collectors. We will definitely be going back!

Our large, open courtyard and lush gardens offer the perfect place to unwind and enjoy the soft coastal air after a delightful day of touring, shopping, or playing on the beach. Tables, benches, and comfy chaise lounge chairs are situated near the old pecan tree, which will shade you while you sip your favorite drink, or enjoy a midday snack. A short, ten minute walk finds you in the heart of the historic, downtown Charleston shopping district. You are within close proximity to the Battery, several city parks, and numerous breakfast cafes and gourmet restaurants. We are near the Medical University of South Carolina and just down the street from the College of Charleston, and a mere twenty minute drive to one of three area beaches: Folley Beach, Isle of Palms, and Sullivan's Island. ... more less
